Ron has been my piano instructor for the past three years. I find him to be very knowledgeable in jazz as well as classical music. He goes above the allotted time to ensure your understanding of instructions, and maintains a professional demeanor at all times, even with wit in his oral approach. I would not hesitate to recommend him for piano instruction at all levels!

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 playin

Hi there! I've been playing piano since I was four, and teaching for over a decade!
In that time, I've run into a lot of former piano students who've been burned out on the instrument; people who don't play anymore because they didn't like the way lessons were structured, or didn't love what they were playing. I've made it my mission to reverse this trend by crafting lessons for my students centered around giving you the skills and techniques you need to get started playing the music you love. I've taught everything from classical showstoppers to movie themes to music from video games and anime. It's all about what kind of music you're in to!

For those looking for a more serious approach, I've helped prepare students of all ages for auditions, college or high school music programs, and even gigs as professional musicians. Let me know what your goals are and what you're hoping to achieve on the instrument, and I'll create a lesson plan to fit your needs!

About Ryan

In addition to being a piano, drum, and music software teacher for over a decade, I also work as a composer and sound designer for video games. As someone who had a lot of great teachers growing up, I think it's important to emphasize the fun in learning an instrument, instead of only focusing on t

Ryan was a pleasure to meet and I really think he is a perfect fit for my kiddos. He is funny and super knowledgeable; all while keeping my boys engaged and on task. They can't wait for their next lesson.

I avoided the piano after I experienced a bad teacher when I was young, but Ryan made me excited to learn again. He is fun and encouraging, patient with my learning style, and makes me feel accomplished with everything I achieve. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

I work with voice users of all types and levels to find their healthy, core singing voice without imposing a particular style. The main thing is to learn healthy habits, including warm-ups, exercises, posture, breathing, etc. We can work on jazz, pop, punk, metal, folk, bluegrass, gospel, or whatever non-classical genre you would like to do.

About Rachel

I love teaching and I love singing! I'm a listener, and love bringing a fun and creative tone to my lessons while teaching the highest level of healthy technique and style. My students are usually focused on a goal: singing for fun or meditative purposes, going for auditions or performances, and r

"Janet is the most knowledgeable and technical piano and voice teacher I have ever known. She pushes her students to be the absolute best while encouraging them along the way in their gifts. If you're serious about learning and becoming the best you can be in piano or voice, without a doubt Janet is the teacher for you! She expects a lot from her students, but puts in even more on her end to prepare you to be the best that you can be. You won't find another teacher around who cares about her job the way she does! She is a gem!!"

"Wow, there are those that have the gift and born to teach. I'm so impress with Mark. He was so patient with me and explained and demonstrated how the piece should be played. He also provided great tips on how to improve my playing. I'm glad I had him as my music teacher. My progress was so rapid, of course it just wasn't his teaching. It also came from my hard work as well but the combination of his coaching and tips pave the way for my improvement. Thank you, thank you Mark."
