I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of piano and guitar skills. I typically use Alfred's Basic books: lesson, technic, and theory books. I also provide students with homework sheet that explains what we have been focusing on, what they have achieved, and what is the expectation for next lesson.

Celine has been a wonderful teacher and my daughter loved the singing classes...She's been very patient with my daughter ,who was a beginner in singing ,and encouraged her and helped her built confidence in singing the songs.
Brian Nguyen
I started with Celine for piano, but then we started doing half piano and half singing lessons.

Celine and I went through a piano lessons book. It was very helpful learning how to learn a song. I got used to reading notes and how to practice. I came from being self taught through youtube and playing by ear for around a year or 2, but I never learned the traditional and more classical way. I really learned a lot from that.

Singing was more exciting because I grew at a pretty fast rate. Celine is really knowledgable about the different ways a person can use their voice and selecting out warm ups to help the growth of a specific singing technique. My voice got stronger and more stable. My head voice is more natural. My singing background was just doing it for fun since I was a kid.

Me and Celine both like kpop and korean music so I sang those as well as some English and Japanese songs. So pretty flexible there. She was able to give me really good recommendations for songs to sing based on my voice.

Celine is very helpful and has been very supportive in finding songs that fit my current range but also challenge me!

First lesson revealed a generous and capable instructor. With out hesitation I recommend Mike.
Reed
Mike has done a great job teaching me. In a year and a half, I have gone from never playing a stringed instrument, to being able to jam with friends and family. I learned basic three-finger Scruggs style bluegrass banjo, and I making moves now to become an intermediate player. I really recommend Mike. He is kind and warm-hearted, and works with you to meet you where you are and improve your game. I now know about 10 songs that I can play lead on, and I can roll or vamp as back-up on any other bluegrass song. Mike has set me up now to work with intermediate techniques. Mike will help you learn!
Lorie
I have been taking banjo lessons with Mike for two months. The instruction has been really useful for me. I debated for a long time about whether or not to take formal lessons. I am so glad that I did. Mike is a very good musician and instructor. I am progressing and enjoying the experience. I highly recommend him as an instructor.

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 playing

What is the Best Lighting for Photography?

The best photography lighting is based on several factors, and depends on what type of look you want when it comes to your photos. Natural lighting versus studio lighting brings about two different looks in your photography. We'll be discussing natural lighting, which does not need any equipment. And we'll also discuss the benefits of two styles of studio lighting. The natural lighting of a photo will be much softer and a warmer look while using studio lighting gives your photos a more ov …
