I can help you develop your repertoire and refine your skills with a variety of classical composers to learn from

About Aleksis
My name is Aleksis B., but many of my students know me as Mr. B. I am a professional instructor and performing musician who combines a love of music with a desire to help others who want to achieve their highest musical potential. I try to make that passion show in everything I do.

My education includes classical voice training with Michele Howard Hansen, an opera singer that often performs at the Kennedy Center. I studied piano with Geoffrey Chappell, who writes for Jazz Times. I also received compositional training on multiple instruments from Stanley Cowell, who recorded and performed with legends like Miles Davis.

I have been performing professionally since 1992. I studied education in college and did my student teaching in a music class at Goshen Elementary School in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

I have been teaching music pr
ofessionally now for over twenty years. Some students want to take a few lessons to see if it is something they will enjoy, others have worked with me for over a decade. I have mentored several students who have gone on to professional careers. I have experienced a lot of success teaching young children and those with special needs. I have been blessed with a tremendous amount of patience and truly enjoy teaching anyone who wants to learn.

Whatever your goals or abilities, I look forward to working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
Experience fun based lessons as my teaching approach is relaxed and inspirational. I enjoy working with all ages, adjusting my teaching methods to accommodate your learning style and abilities. Learn to play the music you love! You learn best when you enjoy what you are playing, I can help you play along with your favorites or even write your own songs. I always ask my students at the beginning of a lesson "What would you like to do today?" Then structure the lesson accordingly into a routine that the student can practice on their own. Generally the time is divided into warm ups, learning new material, then picking a fun song the student choses. Whether your interest is Classical, Jazz, Rock, Pop music, etc... I'm here help you reach your goals so let's make your dreams come true with music together!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Books, Guitar, music stand, metronome, picks, tuner, page clips, capo, media player, laptop, Keyboard (on request), and recording equipment (on request)

*** Specialties ***
With Voice I specialize in helping people prepare for auditions such as American Idol. I have students who simply want to be karaoke stars. I have several professional singers that hire me as a voice coach and producer for recording sessions. I have taught children as young as 2 and those that retired with a lifelong dream to sing. Though my training is classical, I can teach Jazz, Pop, Rock, Rap, R&B, etc...whatever is fun for the student. I highly recommend learning to read music but I do not push it unless parents want their child to.

With Piano I can teach traditionally from Alfred and Bastien Piano Courses depending if they are auditory or visual learners. For Kinesthetic learners I use Hanon scale exercises and Rothman Rhythm Exercises. For those that want to learn notation I introduce classical and Jazz composers unless there is a popular artist/band/movie theme etc...that they would like to learn. However I do not push students to read music unless their parents would prefer it. I tend to keep more students that want to learn to play by ear especially adults by using rhythm training and music theory exercises and then applying them to songs they love. For piano I haven't had much success with children younger than 3. I also have a lot experience working with special needs children.

For Guitar I teach Classical, Acoustic, and Electric all styles and genres. I encourage sight reading but don't mind using tabs. I use more exercises with these students, since the first month students have a hard time making a sound. I try to make the lessons fun by having students strum chords along with songs they chose. I teach lead and rhythm even songwriting and composition. Job satisfaction for me is seeing my students leave a lesson with a smile on their face so I make sure to be a fun based teacher that doesn't give the student a hard time about not practicing.

For Recording and Performance I use the knowledge I gained doing Pro Audio Sales for Guitar Center from 2000-2002 to help clients build their own home studio. I have lots of producers and engineers I work with on a regular basis to produce broadcast quality audio and video recordings and help my students use their lessons and pre-production for those opportunities. I can teach Garage Band or Pro Tools classes on navigating the software and utilizing all the commands. I can also teach room acoustics and using the right microphone and how to position them with the right equipment and the right acoustics to get the best possible tone that they are looking for. I can also teach editing, mixing, looping, sampling, midi, and mastering so that the student can eventually work on their own writing, performing, and recording their music.

As a retiree who has recently returned to piano after a decades-long hiatus, I knew I’d need a teacher with experience teaching adults. Semyon is proving to be excellent. He is a skilled musician and teacher whose approach combines enjoyable piano pieces, exercises for agility and the fundamentals of scales and theory. He is patient and responsive to what I want to accomplish. I have learned in each lesson, seen improvement each week, and enjoy the diversity of assignments. In short, i’m having a grand time and highly recommend him.

In my 7 year musical career, I have become a skilled sheet music reader, song interpreter, and can play in key well with other musicians.

These three components of musicianship are essential for the growth of anybody starting out. Becoming comfortable in these areas will inspire students to continue growing their musical capabilities.

My prices are lower than what you may find in the area because while I am very good at music and have 7 solid years of diverse experience, I feel I can provide the most benefit in the beginning stages of the students learning path, so cheap prices my make up for a lack of schooling or professional training; but I have given many lessons before and my students have all been very successful!

Being taught by me includes sight reading basics first and then moving onto playing popular songs and playing in key. I am very comfortable teaching any age.

I am a young professional myself and would be eager to teach you or your family member!

About Jake
I've been playing guitar and piano for 7 years, during this time I've played with local bands and even manage one! The DC music scene is thriving and unique and I'd love to do my part inspiring and teaching people eager to play.

I also love to ski!

She is very professional, always on time and very communicative with regards to his homework and schedule. He’s now preformed both for family and friends, and also in front of an audience.

Hi everyone!

It is a pleasure for me to teach music. I have been teaching piano and cello for more than ten years. All my students no matter which level of playing are having a good quality time in the lesson. Through my lesson, student learns music from different genres such as music theory,music history, ear training and music appreciation. Because of that, my student always tends to learn quicker than they expected.
Besides teaching, I also perform. My philosophy in music learning is that, it is never easy to learn an instrument. Therefore, learning in a creative atmosphere and giving out precise guidance is not only good for students, but also good for me. By exploring music together each week, it will be a fun and engaging experience for both of us towards music learning.

About Alice
I am a classically trained pianist and piano/ cello teacher. By more than ten years of teaching experience, learning with me is going to be engaging and enchanting. I chose the right method books and design the lesson plan/ practice plan according to your needs. Through my lesson, you are not only learning music but also having a great time learning.

I held a Master degree in piano performance from Manhattan School of Music, , as well as a bachelor degree in piano performance from Taipei National University of the arts. By 27 years of indulging in music, I have to say, it is such a fulfilling journey!

Therefore, I would like to meet all of you. No matter what age you are, what level of playing you are, don't be hesitate to talk to me. I love meeting people and sharing musical thoughts. Looking forward to meeting you.

Ms. Alice is one of the most memorable piano teachers I've taken lessons with. I would always look forward to piano lessons because she would make them fun yet still be able to move forward in songs and techniques. Whenever Ms. Alice plays a section of a song for demonstration, I could feel the emotion behind her playing and I think that plays a role in her being an excellent piano teacher.
I enjoyed my lessons with Ms. Alice very much and I strongly believe that anyone who takes lessons with her will enjoy them as well.

I wish to build a solid foundation of students of all ages who are eager to play piano and to hope to inspire young musicians and help expand current musicians' abilities. I intend to instill the students with sheet reading skills, knowledge of key and time signatures, the understanding of harmonic and tonal concepts, as well as a proper technique. Lessons will be tailored to the individual depending on the students' interests and goals as well as the amount the time the individual is intending to devote.

About Lilan
I come from a musical background with my father being a professional musician. I have been a classically trained pianist since the age of 4 and continued formal piano training up until high school.

With classical piano training at young age, I've built up a solid musical background, with a profound knowledge of music theory. I earned my level 10 piano performance certificate, which is the highest level, at age 13. I am fluent with a variety of classical pieces, including ones from Bach and Chopin.

When I was 11, I was able to quickly pick up percussion. I've been in the school band beginning in middle school and continuing through high school (Shanghai No. 3 Girls' High School) and college (Shanghai Jiaotong University).

In my spare time, I enjoy listening to and playing modern popular music as well. I frequently go to a variet
y of entertainment shows including concerts with my friends. For more information, please do not hesitate to ask.

Lilan is an excellent piano instructor with her professional skills and years of playing experience. She provided me with practical guidance on my playing skills as well as the emotion in the performance with her on-stage performance experience. She is also a responsible instructor. She will play the chapter by herself to let me better understand the performance. Thanks to her professional instructions and patience, my playing skills have been improved a lot. I will recommend Lilan to everyone who would like to expect an improvement on their playing skills as well as receiving great instruction experience.
