Private Music Performance Teacher

David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

About David

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playin

I was apprehensive in the beginning for my first in person ukulele lesson. I didn’t want to feel stupid or be a slow learner. But Chris Immediately made me feel comfortable and by the end of the lesson I felt I had made a friend. He is so knowledgeable and walked me through at my pace. After watching endless hours of YouTube ukulele videos, I finally understood the concepts with Chris’s help. Can’t wait till my next lesson with him.
Laura R.
Amazing teacher! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to improve with their instrument. Lessons are fun and based on what you want to learn. I'm lucky to have him as a teacher!

From my experience auditioning and performing classical singing, piano, theatre, musical theatre, and dance as well as sitting on the other side of the audition panel and in the audience, I am well equipped to help with music performance. Through these experiences I have learned that performing music on any instrument or ensemble setting requires a similar mindset and preparation tactic. This involves polishing the repertoire to maximize confidence as well as using tools to overcome nerves to enjoy the process of performing music. Any musician is welcome!

About Isabel

Music is my great passion, and I have recently received my Master’s degree in classical vocal performance at the Mannes School of Music. Well-versed in many musical genres, I have performed in opera, recital, musical theatre, choir and piano performances and competitions in the US as well as intern

Isabel is an EXCELLENT instructor who tailors her lessons to your individual goals. She is kind, patient, and is essentially an oracle about singing. Every lesson, I learn something new or taught a new technique on how to improve my performance. I look forward to every lesson and have the utmost confidence that she can train me to become the singer I have always wanted to be.
Ariana T.
I would recommend Isabel to absolutely anyone looking to take voice lessons! I appreciate her knowledge of technique and vocal pedagogy, and am thankful for her encouragement and strategies for success. I enjoy my lessons and learn so much from Isabel each week, that it feels like my lessons are in person!
Tilly H.
Isabel is amazing!! She is so nice and encouraging while still teaching you new things! I would recommend her if you are starting out or even if you have been taking voice lessons for years. She is great for people doing Musical style singing! If you have the chance to work with her, take it!

I'm a professional real estate agent that enjoyed good old fashion family fun, which includes karaoke. I was never a singer, but always enjoyed singing. I figured it was worth an effort to take a few lessons with Christine and see if I liked it. Well, I loved it!

I've been enjoying music and singing every since I started taking lessons with Ms. Christine. I now give monthly dances and include karaoke with prizes; I'm a featured singer/host and it's been WONDERFUL. Never would have thought voice lessons could bring so much meaning to my life. Forever grateful. Thanks so very much :)"

Music History in a Nutshell: And Why it's So Important to Learn

The history of music is a history of aesthetics and trends throughout the centuries. Music follows in the footsteps of the other arts – literature, painting, and architecture – and is usually a result of changes in society that stem from the changing ideas of philosophers, politicians, church, and other leading factors in society. This article aims to provide the beginner musician a nutshell overview of the different periods in music history by discussing the type of music and aesthet …
