About Diane
I have a degree and certification in violin and piano from the Boston Conservatory as well as a Master's Degree from the University of Maryland. I have had additional training and certification as a Suzuki teacher from The Suzuki Teacher Training Institute. I am a member of SAGWA-Suzuki Association of the Greater Washington Area as well as SAA-Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have played all around the world including the Vatican, White House, Paris, Russia, England and Wales as well as in Concert Halls such as Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center. I have taken students with me to perform as well in these countries and also every major concert hall in the Washington, D.C. area. I give my students opportunities to perform whenever there is an opportunity. In addition I work with students to earn music scholarships to private school
s and colleges. I am also a judge in the Young Artist Award in Maryland. In addition, I have received two White House awards for my performances at the White House, I am also a member of Psi Chi International Honor Society.

Music has been an important part of my life. It represents so much that is good in life and I do my best to communicate this to my students. I am training my students not just to be musicians but to love music for life.

*** Lesson Details ***
I treat each student as an individual since everyone is different. For some I might use a traditional approach, some just the Suzuki approach and others a combination of techniques. Whatever produces the best results. My goal is not to make strictly classical musicians but to train students to love music and carry this love throughout life. My repertoire consists of everything including traditional, Suzuki, Disney, Showtunes, etc. I have taken students to perform little concerts at the White House, schools, hospitals and concert halls to get the real feel of performing. I view lessons as a three way relationship between myself, the student and the parent so that the parent is not left out. I even have a small group called Musical Magic which incorporates magic into music. I feel I am laid back but am able to accomplish my goal through positive reinforcement. Every child or student wants to feel good about his/her playing. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible. If you want online lessons, please contact me through Take Lessons since I have additional availability to teach online. In the past six months my students have performed for the National Humane Society at their animal ball, a multi teacher recital on a local stage, and just two weeks ago seven of them performed at Strathmore. This summer I have two more concerts planned. Coming up will be an all instrument graduation with several other teachers where students receive medals for their performances. No student is required to perform but if they want to the opportunity is there. All students are required to have an instrument prior to beginning lessons. If students need to rent a violin, I will provide you with the name of a violin dealer that both rents and sells string instruments. Piano students must have a piano or keyboard.

I have also started a toddler music appreciation program geared for the 1-4age range. The purpose of this program is to expose very young children to the fun of Music through instruments, songs and play.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach at home and have both a grand piano and electric keyboard in addition to a harp and violin.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When my students have to travel to perform, I make sure they have everything they need.

*** Specialties ***
Traditional and Suzuki approaches for both violin and piano. I also teach children with learning disabilities.and have extensive summer programs to help students with auditions for youth orchestras and school orchestras.

About Eric
My name is Eric Matthew Brown I am a tutor with a four year college degree (B.A.) in math and philosophy and a sum total of thirteen years experience in professional tutoring. I love to tutor math and see students gain the knowledge necessary to succeed in their math courses and standardized tests. I put emphasis on theoretical comprehension and in tutoring I exhibit precision, clarity, and most of all patience. Frequent repetition and further explanation of theorems and definitions are necessary. I also have the ability to tutor logic, politics, and civics (American government).

About David
My name is David S, and I have been a CG artist and animator for 8 years. Computer graphics is a passion of mine, and I consider it a joy to pass on what I have learned to others. In 2014, I graduated from Huntington University with a B.S. degree in Digital Media Arts - Animation, so I possess a very good understanding of the principles of animation that spans just about every medium. I have also worked on multiple independent projects ranging from shorts to feature films, which has given me a wealth of practical experience.

If you consider yourself a fun and creative person and have an interest in animation or design, then I would love to work with you to develop your skills. Perhaps you're more interested in Hollywood-style special effects, in which case I can teach you many of the secrets of the trade. Regardless, I can provide soli
d training to get you started in any of these great fields.

Software Taught: Blender, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Autodesk Maya, The Foundry NUKE, Blackmagic Design Fusion, mocha by Imagineer Systems, Toon Boom Harmony, and 3DEqualizer.

I am very happy that I chose Jeff. His knowledge of Quickbooks is fantastic but what is even more important is his that he goes way above to make sure you understand the topic. I got way more out of my one hour lesson than I would have imagined. Thanks Jeff.

I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.

About Ronald
I am a self-taught programmer who managed to get a job at NeXT working for Steve Jobs, then spent 25 years at Apple. I started by writing programming books, became an engineering manager, ran the Developer Publications department, and finally founded the Software University team to teach programming skills across Apple.

I've taught Python to thousands of people around the world, from beginners to professional programmers. I focus on task-based learning -- we start with what you want to accomplish, and I build the training around that. Many of my students have said they tried learning to program multiple times, and my class was the first time they succeeded. Experienced programmers, and even programmers who know some Python, find that they get a much more in-depth level of understanding that allows them to solve tough problems in an eleg
ant manner.

The rest of the time I love cooking, playing board games, doing a bit of sleight of hand, and watching classic Dr Who.

About Derek
I am a working professional software engineer who also enjoys some video games, simulations, mountain biking, working on cars, and tinkering with just about anything.

I have loved computer programming and software engineering ever since my first program I wrote on my graphing calculator in high school. I have a Master's Degree in Software Engineering and 15 years of work experience.

I loved my formal schooling, but I love making practical application of computer science principles even more. I have worked professionally in C/C++, Java, and for the past 10 years C#. Often I find that the language you're using isn't the problem, rather the ability to understand the big picture and come up with an elegant solution.

I look forward to working with you to take your abilities to the next level and have some fun with it as you go.
