Darla W.

Newport News, VA

About Darla

Hello, I am a professional musician with over 21 years of service as a military bandsmen. I've been stationed all over the world and have had the privilege to perform in some of the greatest concert halls. I love to work with students of all ages and can teach beginning-intermediate piano, and beginning-advanced flute. Prior to joining the military, I taught general music in the Texas Public School system. I have a bachelor€'™s degree in music education from the University of Texas at Arlington. I am a very active flutist in this area, performing with The Tidewater Winds, The Hampton Roads Phi
lharmonic, and various small chamber groups.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in creating a very positive environment for my students. I am very patient and upbeat. Whether you are a beginner, or more advanced, I can tailor the lessons to your needs. I will give you a solid foundation in the fundamentals of music in a creative and fun way! I enjoy working with students of all ages. If you are just starting to learn, or have decided to come back to music lessons, I believe you will enjoy studying with me! ***Also, be advised, that if you are a beginner, I only teach 30 minute lessons! This is best for all beginners, whether a young student, or an adult student!! (Also, FYI, we do have cats in our home!)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio with an upright piano for lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music stand, instrument and any books I recommend.

I am returning to piano as an adult after many years away. Darla did a great job assessing and understanding where I am on the learning curve now and laying out a plan forward from there. She is very positive, encouraging and excited to teach others. I am looking forward to working with her to become a better player.

Darla is a great teacher! My son has been taking lessons with her since he was 4 years old, he's 5 now, and I think that she is the best! I really like how patient she is with my son and the way she speaks to him just makes things click. Thank you Darla!

Exactly what I need! Cara is teaching me the fundamentals of singing and I can't wait for each lesson. I have tried voice lessons on cd's from amazon in the past but having a super knowledgeable and experienced instructor in person is so much more effective!

Laura was a great instructor. My 9 year old son had no experience with any instrument before he began lessons with her. He made so much progress in the year and a half they worked together. She followed a musical curriculum, but she also kept him engaged by pursuing some of his special interests as well. She helped him with the Star Wars theme, did holiday music, let him compose his own music, to name a few things. He was so comfortable with her, but she kept him on task. When she moved away, we were devastated.

8-Year-Old Girl is Gnarliest Guitar Shredder Ever
I'm willing to bet that "playing like a girl" will stop being an insult within this little lady's lifetime! At just 8 years old, Lisa-X is able to play rapid fire metal solos that will melt your face off and blow your mind. She's smaller than her guitar, but she sure knows how to make it sound big and mighty. Plus, the sweet grin she gives the camera as she's bending a note around 1:46? Priceless! Child prodigies like Lisa are absolutely amazing, but there's really no wrong age to star

With the advent of smartphones and tablets, tools that will help you teach yourself to sing on key are now readily available alongside more traditional methods. Here are five methods yo

Learn the steps to take in this guest post by Ann Arbor, MI teacher Amy C...   When I first began to learn piano, my fourth finger seemed bent on being anywhere but on the keys.
