About Barry
Hello! A little about me... I have a Bachelors Degree in Music, 15 years of performing experience, and 10 years of teaching experience. I would love to share what I've learned to help you find your authentic sound. I try to approach each student individually vs treating everyone the same, catering to learning styles and willingness to learn. I hope to see you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
I think everyone is born with the capacity to sing, with their own unique voice. I think often times we "get in our own way" and hold ourselves back from truly realizing our potential. I would love to help find your true voice so that you can do anything you want, whether it's singing in the shower or in front of thousands of adoring fans at Carnegie Hall!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice rooms with upright pianos.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If t
here is no piano, we can work from the mp3 player or a cd player and make it work!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz voice, improvisation (scatting) and Broadway singing. I am also trained in Acting.

About Sepehrdad
As an experienced Violin teacher I help students to teach themselves the violin, to understood that their playing only improves when they change habits. A bored or disinterested child simply won’t progress, and a great violin teacher knows how to communicate with creativity and clarity. I have proper knowledge of the violin’s mechanics, general musical and repertoire knowledge, skilled as a player, and strength as a communicator. I have a bachelor degree in string performance, and I’ve taught students from beginner to advance for more than 10 years, guided students participating in inter-school musical shows, competitions and different musical presentations – Fests and orchestras. I teach both Suzuki and traditional method depending on the level of student.

Words wouldn't give Hanaa justice but I'll give it a try!!

Its been my adult dream to get to know how to play piano and couldn't take the step without a gift from my husband at my 33rd birthday!

Hanaa was very patient , very very much encouraging from Day 1
She keept me engaged even if i couldnt get a hold of notes or a song at the very beginning
She's always lighten up the mood and gave me different songs from different learning books so i can feel I'm getting better and better
And thanks to her devotion and patience with me
I get to fulfill one of my bucket list dream :)

We used to take a group piano lesson with a different provider. My 6 years old son keeps chatting in a group environment, so we decided to go with a private piano teacher. We are so lucky that we found Ms. Hanaa, a patient, encouraging, professional and efficient piano teacher. We took 3 lessons so far, and I think my son made more progress than the entire semester when he was in a group class, because he is more focused with the one-on-one environment. And he really likes Ms. Hanna.

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

I am a gentle and patient teacher. My students like me.
I have experience with _all_ ages, including little children, older children, pre-teens, teens, young adults, and older.

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 t
hey have something to read. It holds their attention. Also, after the lesson is over, my student would have something to reference 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, Modal/Impressionistic (which might strike some listeners as Jazz-influenced Jazz-flavoured) music.
I been working on writing many transcriptions of my favourite songs/compositions. 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, that _you_ like best. I've done exactly that for several of my students.

About Madison
I started playing bass through my school orchestra program at age 9, and I’ve adored classical music ever since. That’s my main focus, but I also dabble in rock, jazz, blues, and bluegrass, sometimes on other instruments (electric bass, guitar, violin, and cello). I was self-taught for many years, so I know how hard it is to make progress and how easily bad habits develop when you don’t have guidance. That’s why my methods are designed to make you into your own best teacher. I won’t just tell you what to do – I’ll train you to observe your own playing and use effective practice methods to overcome the challenges you encounter. So, even if you have to stop taking lessons, you will never have to stop learning. The better you get, the more fun you’ll have, and the more you’ll want to play!

About Natalie
I'm a clarinetist (Bb and bass), teacher, performer, and aspiring conductor in the DMV area. I graduated from Catholic University with a Bachelors in Music Performance - Woodwinds, and have a strong theoretical and practical foundation in music education from my time at CUA. My formal training in education as well as performance allows me to pull from multiple sources in order to make lessons fun and productive for both teacher and student.

Currently, I'm perform solo and with chamber ensembles around the DMV area. I also serve as a music director for multiple music ministry groups around the District. I have professional experience in composing and arranging, and love to work with new composers to premiere contemporary classical works. Some of my favorite performances include playing in the pit orchestra for Center Stage Theater Compan
y's Addams Family, performing with a wind quintet at the Canadian Embassy, and a solo performance at the St. John Paul II National Shrine.

I teach at your location, in the studios at Catholic University, or over Skype. I work with students with a variety of goals, ages, and skill levels, primarily looking to study classical style music.
