About Jennifer
My name is Jennifer. I got my degree in vocal performance and minored in Jazz. I began voice lessons myself when I was eight. I am a mezzo soprano, and can teach both female and male voices. I have performed in several opera productions including but not limited to The Marriage of Figaro, Dido and Aeneus, Tenderland, and Hand of Bridge. I have worked and performed in masterworks by Brahms, Chopin, Mozart to name a few. I studied in French, English, Spanish, Italian, and German. I studied diction, ear training, piano, music history, pedagogy, and music theory. I have also performed with artists such as New York Voices, Bobby Mcferrin and Kurt Elling. I was blessed with many learning opportunities to grow in my passion and I would love to pass that knowledge and passion to anyone who wants to learn.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are de
signed around the needs of each student. The first lessons is always spent testing range, knowledge and abilities already known by the student. Then the student weighs in on what kind of music they would like to learn and what they hope to gain from the lessons. Theory and ear training are incorporated into the lessons. We work on breathing, technique and style. Generally we start with English or Italian. We work on vocal performance from a classical standpoint but Jazz and Broadway can also be taught if desired by the student. Scales and exercises are given each week to be worked on until the next lesson. A recording device is encouraged if the student cannot play the piano. Also, a voice note book to take notes during the lesson to be used during practice during the week.

*** Specialties ***
classical voice, jazz voice, musical theater, audition preparation

How I Can Help You:

I have worked one on one with music students for 10 years. I have extensive experience in teaching classical, musical theater, and pop styles of singing, as well as acting for the stage and beginning piano.

Whether you are a beginner, or a veteran musician, I can help you cultivate your musical skills.

About Me:

I am a classically trained singer, with a master's degree in music from The Peabody Institute. I have performed at The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, The Tanglewood Music Center, several local and national opera companies, and have been positively reviewed in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Baltimore Sun, and The Boston Globe.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each student receives a personalized lesson plan, based on his/her goals, and musical background.

My singers are all trained in a cla
ssical technique, even if they specialize in contemporary singing, to help them avoid potential vocal injury.

My piano students learn to read and play music at their own pace.

My acting and spoken voice students learn to feel comfortable reading clearly, and reciting/performing on stage or other public areas.

My music theory students work one on one with me, learning basic theory (note names, durations, etc.) to advanced theory, ear training, and composition.

I am flexible and am willing to work with students of any age and level. I only require that students practice and enjoy the music they make.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room in home with seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classical singer, and specialize in classical voice training. However, I also have extensive experience in other singing styles, from choral to popular, and acting/oratory. I have a minor in music theory, and have taken advanced courses in music theory pedagogy.

About Michelle
Instilling and nurturing a love of music and developing musicianship are why I’m a voice teacher. I earned my Master of Music Education degree in 2012 from Boston University, which has furthered my love of teaching and given me even more resources to draw from.

With all my students, I emphasize good technique. No matter what genre of music or age of student, singing in a healthful and fun way includes great posture, breath management, and producing a free and easy sound. I believe that each student has their own unique way of learning, so I tailor my lessons to fit. Students are both encouraged to sing music they're familiar with and to try something new. Immediate feedback and specific practice instructions help my students gain a sense of confidence and assess their progress. Last but not least, singing should be fun!

I'm a member
of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, The Voice Workshop, and the Loudoun Fairfax Music Fellowship.

I worked with Michelle for a little over 2 years. As an adult student, I was super nervous about singing in front of anyone - it took me this long to just sign up for lessons! She was patient with me and gave me lots of tools for dealing with my nerves and stage fright. Michelle helped me to choose songs that I not only wanted to sing but that matched my voice and range. I was hesitant about performing in a recital but Michelle pointed out that it was like training for a marathon - doing all the work but not performing just seemed silly. It wasn't perfect but it was definitely something I'm proud to have crossed off my bucket list.

About Lola
I have more than 30 years of musical experience. I’ve taught guitar, piano, bass, and theater in private schools, art schools and I’m currently teaching at Classic Axe Guitar Gallery in Gainesville, VA. I’ve taught over 250 students in all levels of experience, tailoring each lesson to fit each student, covering all genres, so that learning their instrument is fun. It’s been exciting to see some of them become music majors, some of them become performers, and some using their skills and gifts to teach others. I love teaching and sharing my musical knowledge with people of ALL ages. I believe anyone can learn music, with the right approach and encouragement. Nothing gives me more pleasure than watching my students accomplish more than they ever dreamed possible.

I offer beginner to advanced violin lessons for all ages. I have gotten to perform in many different ensembles and styles. This allows me to adapt to students' interests. Having taught privately for over a decade now (has it really been that long?), I have developed many ways of explaining specific concepts since one student may understand it perfectly if explained differently than how another student grasped it. Teaching violin is one of my greatest loves because I get to constantly see students fall in love with music and violin.

About Deborah
I have been a private music instructor for over 20 years. I earned a B.A. in music (oboe performance) from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA, and a M.A. and PhD in musicology from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.

I enjoy working with children and teenagers. While my approach to teaching piano and oboe is classically based and my approach to violin instruction is Suzuki based, I adapt my method depending on the learning style of the student. My primary goals in teaching is to inspire the student and instill a love and passion for music.

On a practical note, I have four fluffy and very friendly cats living at my home studio. If the kitties create a problem for you, I can travel to your home.

If I do not have a time open that meets your schedule, please message me and we can discuss finding a time that fits b
oth of our schedules.

About Anton
My name is Anton Nelson. I am currently a student at Shenandoah Conservatory, studying under Dr. John O’Conor for a bachelor degree in piano performance. Before Shenandoah Conservatory, I received much instruction from Dr. Edvinas Minkstimas, a Juilliard graduate, at the Washington Conservatory of Music. I have also had private instruction with Tatiana Ioudenitch, and Professor Steven Spooner from the University of Kansas. I’ve also received masterclasses from world renowned pianists such as Orion Weiss and Brian Ganz at The Music Center at Strathmore.

I have also won numerous awards for my piano skills, most notably:
• 1st prize in the 5th Piano Festival at the Washington Conservatory of Music. The judges Bradford Gowen and Jose Ramos-Santana, for the first time in the history of the festival, awarded me the Certificate of Merit.
• 1st
prize in solo category and 3rd prize in concerto category at the “Music Without Limits” competition in Lithuania, which was also my first orchestral debut.
• 1st prize at the George Mason University Music Competition
• The Luciana Montanari-Mendola Award presented by The Italian Cultural Society of Washington D.C.

I have also performed numerous times with orchestra, including the Symphony Orchestra of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, conducted by maestro Laurynas Sadauskas, and Washington Conservatory Orchestra, conducted by Scott Wood.

I have dedicated my life to the piano, and now, I would like to share my knowledge and love for music with others, of all ages and skill levels. I believe that it is important for me to share what I know about the art of piano performance to ensure that this skill is passed on to future generations, regardless if it is for simple personal enjoyment, or a competitive professional pursuit of mastery of the skill.

Thank you for your attention.
