About Michelle
Instilling and nurturing a love of music and developing musicianship are why I’m a voice teacher. I earned my Master of Music Education degree in 2012 from Boston University, which has furthered my love of teaching and given me even more resources to draw from.

With all my students, I emphasize good technique. No matter what genre of music or age of student, singing in a healthful and fun way includes great posture, breath management, and producing a free and easy sound. I believe that each student has their own unique way of learning, so I tailor my lessons to fit. Students are both encouraged to sing music they're familiar with and to try something new. Immediate feedback and specific practice instructions help my students gain a sense of confidence and assess their progress. Last but not least, singing should be fun!

I'm a member
of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, The Voice Workshop, and the Loudoun Fairfax Music Fellowship.

I worked with Michelle for a little over 2 years. As an adult student, I was super nervous about singing in front of anyone - it took me this long to just sign up for lessons! She was patient with me and gave me lots of tools for dealing with my nerves and stage fright. Michelle helped me to choose songs that I not only wanted to sing but that matched my voice and range. I was hesitant about performing in a recital but Michelle pointed out that it was like training for a marathon - doing all the work but not performing just seemed silly. It wasn't perfect but it was definitely something I'm proud to have crossed off my bucket list.

About Lola
I have more than 30 years of musical experience. I’ve taught guitar, piano, bass, and theater in private schools, art schools and I’m currently teaching at Classic Axe Guitar Gallery in Gainesville, VA. I’ve taught over 250 students in all levels of experience, tailoring each lesson to fit each student, covering all genres, so that learning their instrument is fun. It’s been exciting to see some of them become music majors, some of them become performers, and some using their skills and gifts to teach others. I love teaching and sharing my musical knowledge with people of ALL ages. I believe anyone can learn music, with the right approach and encouragement. Nothing gives me more pleasure than watching my students accomplish more than they ever dreamed possible.

About Deborah
I have been a private music instructor for over 20 years. I earned a B.A. in music (oboe performance) from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA, and a M.A. and PhD in musicology from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.

I enjoy working with children and teenagers. While my approach to teaching piano and oboe is classically based and my approach to violin instruction is Suzuki based, I adapt my method depending on the learning style of the student. My primary goals in teaching is to inspire the student and instill a love and passion for music.

On a practical note, I have four fluffy and very friendly cats living at my home studio. If the kitties create a problem for you, I can travel to your home.

If I do not have a time open that meets your schedule, please message me and we can discuss finding a time that fits b
oth of our schedules.

About Amy
I am a Classical Trained Pianist. I began my musical Education at the age of 6 and quickly progressed through several teachers to an Advanced level. By the age of 12, I was being tutored by College Level Music Professors. Upon moving to Virginia in 2009, I finished up my musical education at Shenandoah University and Academy. During my high school and college years I participated in recitals 3-4 times a year with all memorized pieces, participated in and won several music competitions, as well as accompanied and performed for many social engagements and weddings.

I have been teaching piano for the last 8 years and love having the opportunity to pass my love for music on to the next generation. I am familiar with teaching students of all ages and love the challenge of tailoring each music lesson specifically for the student. With this
experience comes patience and willingness to think outside of the box in order to keep music interesting and captivating.

I primarily teach classical music as this a great fundamental learning tool that will help a student be able to cross all genres when they become a seasoned performer. Along with the classical music, I like to supplement with method books, Disney, pop, and some contemporary music to bring dimension and fun into learning. I use activity worksheets and other incentives to encouraging memory retention and to maintain familiarity with all the musical terms and rules.

Amy has been instrumental in training many of my children in the study of piano. She has laid a great foundation in music theory and instilled in them the discipline of practicing and a love of classical music. We discovered that classical training lays an excellent foundation for all other genres. Amy’s passion for the classical can be heard no matter the style that is being taught or performed. Some of our children have since branched off into other instruments. However, their instructors have been amazed with their knowledge of music theory. They were able to skip the beginning basics of their instruments and move on to harder selections. I would highly recommend Amy as an instructor. She is professional, fun, and passionate.

We have since moved to another state and I am still searching for an instructor of her caliber.

At the university, I participate in Shenandoah's Symphony Orchestra and Wind Ensemble.

I also have experience outside of the university; in February 2019, I participated in the New Orchestra of Washington's NOWapprentice program and played second oboe for Beethoven Symphony No. 3.

About Anton
My name is Anton Nelson. I am currently a student at Shenandoah Conservatory, studying under Dr. John O’Conor for a bachelor degree in piano performance. Before Shenandoah Conservatory, I received much instruction from Dr. Edvinas Minkstimas, a Juilliard graduate, at the Washington Conservatory of Music. I have also had private instruction with Tatiana Ioudenitch, and Professor Steven Spooner from the University of Kansas. I’ve also received masterclasses from world renowned pianists such as Orion Weiss and Brian Ganz at The Music Center at Strathmore.

I have also won numerous awards for my piano skills, most notably:
• 1st prize in the 5th Piano Festival at the Washington Conservatory of Music. The judges Bradford Gowen and Jose Ramos-Santana, for the first time in the history of the festival, awarded me the Certificate of Merit.
• 1st
prize in solo category and 3rd prize in concerto category at the “Music Without Limits” competition in Lithuania, which was also my first orchestral debut.
• 1st prize at the George Mason University Music Competition
• The Luciana Montanari-Mendola Award presented by The Italian Cultural Society of Washington D.C.

I have also performed numerous times with orchestra, including the Symphony Orchestra of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, conducted by maestro Laurynas Sadauskas, and Washington Conservatory Orchestra, conducted by Scott Wood.

I have dedicated my life to the piano, and now, I would like to share my knowledge and love for music with others, of all ages and skill levels. I believe that it is important for me to share what I know about the art of piano performance to ensure that this skill is passed on to future generations, regardless if it is for simple personal enjoyment, or a competitive professional pursuit of mastery of the skill.

Thank you for your attention.

What's the Difference Between the Violin and Fiddle?
Is that a fiddle... or a violin? It's a common question, and one that baffles many beginner musicians. So what's the answer? When it comes to the actual instrument, there actually aren't any differences. What distinguishes a violin from a fiddle is what kind of music you're playing with it. A musician playing folk, bluegrass or country, for example, would most likely refer to their instrument as a fiddle; those who play other genres (jazz, classical, etc.) typically call theirs a violin.
