About Richard
I am a graduate of the Peabody Conservatory and I hold two degrees in piano performance. Through my world-class teachers I can trace my musical education lineage directly to Mozart, Liszt, Haydn, Chopin, Mendelssohn and Beethoven. Over several decades I have taught more than 3,000 beginning and advanced students, a number of whom have gone on to earn piano performance scholarships from prestigious conservatories, music schools and universities. I have composed my own course method based on the piano teaching method of Carl Czerny, a student of Beethoven and the teacher of Franz Liszt. Beginners quickly gain confidence to perform in public and learn to perform increasingly difficult and lengthy compositions such as the Beethoven sonatas, Chopin scherzos, works of J.S.Bach and many others all from memory. One of my students just complet
ed, from memory, a Beethoven sonata of 28 pages. Several of my students are on youtube.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students must have a piano or keyboard at home and are expected to practice every day. I have written and published the music and the course of study for all first year beginners; They learn proper fingering, how to memorize music by learning finger patterns, and how to count in rhythm. The more time they spend in practice will determine how quickly they advance, Upon completion of my initial course, they begin to study works by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin. Children can begin lessons from the age of 4. Parents of students from 4 to 8 years of age must sit in on lessons and practice regularly with the child at home.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio are two Mason Hamlin grand pianos. A professional concert adjustable stool and a collection of nearly all classical piano music. There is a waiting room with coloring books and a TV.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When I teach in my students' homes, they must have a piano.

*** Specialties ***
Vengerova Method based on the French School; Close Fingering Techinque

About Nicole
As a voice teacher and voice coach I strive to help the student get to where they want to be vocally. For me singing is something that brings me joy and I hope to be able to share that with you.

It took me a while to realize how much music and singing means to me. While studying something entirely different at the University of Maryland, I began studying voice and realized that it was something that I had a gift for. I fell in love with singing art songs, jazz and opera arias. And while studying at the University of Maryland, I had the opportunity to work as a voice teacher/ section leader with the women's section of a choir, numerous opportunities to work as a soloist and in a few jazz clubs. I was also involved in dance performances and acted as a dance tutor.

Later, when I was invited to sing in Denver I had the opportunity
to sing in Little Shop of Horrors and to sing with a women's choir. While studying at the University of Colorado Boulder I began to come into my own and started to let my large sound free. (Which for me was a process. Getting your voice where you want it and to where it is capable is work. But, it is fun work and you're always happy when you have these great moments where you get to where you were hoping you could and that your teacher said you would go at some point.) It was there, at CU Boulder that I got the opportunity to start singing in operas. While in Boulder I sang in The Magic Flute, Sarah McKinnon and as a soloist or recitalist.

Also, while there I worked as an actress in a theater company called the Interactive Theater Project for three years. I thought that by getting involved in that that I would be able to act more effectively while singing. It was fun just doing something where you're just working with the spoken word. I had a wonderful time with them and learned a lot about character work and what it takes to connect to the words in an effective way.

In the past few years, I have been a soloist and recitalist in the Washington,DC area and has sang opera in Pennsylvania with Center Stage Opera. Last year, I sang with Center Stage Opera in the role of Bertha. I had the opportunity to sing and to act at the Kennedy Center a few years ago. Also during that time, I
sang in Aleko, the Die Zauberflöte as the Queen of the Night, Serena in Porgy and Bess, and
sang in Ragtime and sang the role of the Wardrobe in Beauty and the Beast.

I am currently working as a soloist, a children's choir director, a chorus member and preparing for a recital and auditions in October. I look forward to what the rest of the year will bring.

*** Lesson Details ***
If you're a beginner, I will help you to understand what you need to get through the vocal line with breath and intonation. We will begin by doing vocal exercises and learn a lot about breathing for singing. I want to help you to make more beautiful tones. I will also slowly begin teaching you how to read sheet music and to help you be a more effective listener when it comes to music. I can also help you to become a better communicator as a singer.

For acting, I will help you to learn how to develop characters and bring the writer's words to life. We will begin by seeing what sort of subjects or genres interest you and what you are doing with those words now, and how you can delve deeper into making the world of the characters something more flushed out.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Inside my home studio I have: music, a music stand, chairs, WiFi, a computer, a laptop, a keyboard, a microphone, a metronome, a microphone, an amp/large speaker, and a sofa.

*** Specialties ***
For voice I would say that my focus is on classical voice. I also sing jazz, gospel and musical theater. For acting I have done both improvisational and regular scripted plays.

I have not taught students with special needs, but as someone with a twin sister with special needs, I am open to teaching students with special needs.

About Ron
I began my formal study of piano at the age of five. I also studied violin, viola and tap dance during my youth. A very close friend and I founded the Young Senators, a R&B dance band which played throughout the Washington DC Metropolitan are. The group eventually became the “back up” group for Motown’s Eddie Kendricks, of Temptations fame. Throughout my career, I've performed with some celebrated music and movie stars; Cab Calloway, Esther Rolle, Brock Peters and Cecily Tyson, to name a few.

In the late 90s, worked for Jordan Kitts Music, providing (group and private) piano instruction for 3 year old up to adult seniors. My lessons were designed to build cumulative sequences of musical experiences that fostered continuous growth in musical understanding, skills, and knowledge with a focus towards contemporary and traditional ke
yboard harmonies.
In 2000, I worked for the Jewish Primary Day School (Grades K – 6), where I introduced the conceptual structure of music, focusing on melody, rhythm, and harmony and their expressive and stylistic organization. Program objectives included: 1) ability to listen with discrimination, 2) ability to sing on pitch within a limited range, 3) ability to play simple rhythm and melodic instruments, 4) ability to interpret music through body movements, impersonations, and dramatizations, and 5) ability to associate symbols of musical notation with musical concepts.

Today, I perform professionally and provide private online and offline piano instruction for children and adults.

About Pierre-Olivier
Pierre-Olivier graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Mons (Belgium) and the Departmental Conservatory of Valenciennes (France) under the supervision of the prominent French lyric signing professor Daniel Ottevaere. Today, he is working with the famous tenor Daniel Galvez Vallejo. Over the past 10 years, Pierre-Olivier, as a professional signer, has performed in opera, musical, jazz and oratorio in many European cities, including Paris, Versailles, Toulouse, Reims, Lille, Bruxelles, Barcelona, Sevilla, Berlin, Bucharest, etc. Outside Europe, he has also performed in Moscow, Jerusalem, and Santiago de Chile.

Pierre-Olivier has performed together with many famous singers such as Bjork, Michel Fugain, Steve Zegree (Gold Company), Greta De Reyghere, Maria Cristina Kiehr, Herve Niquet (Festival d'Ambronay - France), Jean-Claude Malgoire (
Atelier Lyrique de Tourcoing - France)...

In addition to performance, Pierre-Oliiver has also worked as a singing teacher at the Conservatory and the RKM rock school of Namur (Belgium). For about 8 years, he has been offering private singing lessons to students at different levels and designing individualized classes to help students achieve their objectives. He coached regularly professional and non-professional singing groups and choirs, including youth choirs. He has given different master classes in Belgium, France and Chile.

Pierre-Olivier has recently moved to Washington DC from Europe to look for new challenges and opportunities for improving his professional career.

I am an enthusiastic, fun, adaptive yet demanding teacher. In each lesson, I adapt my teaching method according to the special requests and levels of my students, as well as their expectations and the daily conditions. I usually work with each student to decide together which is the best repertory for his/her voice and plan together the learning program. I will create a stress-free and trust environment to help my student progress in his/her work. Together with the students, we will develop a strong technique but always with musicality!

For beginners, we will be mainly focusing on the basics of vocal techniques, e.g. relaxation, breath, voice correctness and stability and the interpretation of selected songs.

For intermediate and advanced students, we will mainly concentrate on musicianship and specific technical corrections related to their voices. I am opening to do interpretation only for people who prepare shows or auditions.

I accept students of any age and level, but students must have motivations… For young students, I try to communicate regularly with their parents to explain the work we have done in the class and the home work which could be interesting for the students to do. Singing lessons are a funny and creative way to discover the true artist that is hidden within each person, so let's get started!!

When I finally spoke up why I have trouble practicing on me own. It evolved in my understanding of setting alarms for myself to set time for myself to actually do it. Plus he changed his tune and worked with me better too. But I had to talk about it myself first. Also he does help a lot indeed. And is very supportive, I am definitely going to record myself now and send it to him like he suggests. Probably not every day. But maybe 5-6 days a week hopefully. Definitely more after learning to set alarms for myself each day and set that time for my singing practice.

I only got to have courses with Pierre-Olivier for three months because he had to move to the USA, but these three months were the most productive for me.
I am student at a conservatory in Belgium and have a full training there but I found Pierre-Olivier's courses very (dare I say even more) interesting and complete.
I made a lot of progress during the 3 months I spent being his student: my technique improved a lot, and I learned so much about interpretation.
Pierre-Olivier has a vast general knowledge which is very pleasant as he can help you understand and analyse your score thoroughly. He not only teaches classical music but is open to a great deal of styles and I had the chance to explore the genres a bit more and exploit my voice.
I was really sad to see him leave because it is so hard to find a good teacher (trust me I had plenty) and hope he'll come back to Belgium
I am looking forward to seeing him again during one of his summer camps back in Europe.

About Sean
Anyone can sound great on a piano! Let me show you how.

I am a gentle and patient teacher. My students like me.

When I started teaching, I assumed that many beginners -- especially children -- would prefer to learn music by-ear. Based on my own personal experience as a child learning piano, I found that to be the easiest, most-intuitive, and rewarding way to develop musically.

However, in my more recent experience as a _teacher_, I appreciate how every student is unique and will learn best in different ways, using different approaches and methods. Some of the children I have taught, for example, demonstrated a propensity and affinity for visual pattern recognition. Some children seem to be more engaged when they have something to read. It holds their attention. Also, after the lesson is over, my student would have something to r
eference throughout the week to remember what notes to play.

I have taught a variety of adults, teens, and children over the past two years. I have a B.M. degree in Music and Technology. Myself, I have played piano (and other keyboard instruments) for over 20 years.

One approach I can take with adult students is to help them achieve a musical sophistication and richness without complexity and great difficulty. Being able to create music that is enjoyable to listen to isn't as hard as some might assume. Please contact me to show you how.

I teach a variety of music -- "Classical" (formal European compositions), Rock/Pop, and Jazz-influenced music. I have made many transcriptions. I'd love to share these with you and teach you how to play some of that music! I'll teach you your favorite songs.

Sean is patient with her and makes his lessons engaging. He's made sure he's meeting our goals for her learning and told us he's open to changing her lessons as we would like.
