my youngest, Daniella , is 3. and Faith just turned 4 And I have three beginning seniors who chose this as their new hobby! (And my eldest is 94) I currently teach out of 7 different method books (I so like the variety and find a specific method geared toward your specific needs.) Recitals and performances are very important to me, however not required. Even attending and observing can be very educational and motivating. Many of my students register for a longer lesson and combine voice and accompanying with their piano lesson. And you let me know of a song/piece you wish to learn and we can make it happen! Once a month group lessons can be added as an addition where small groups of student gather to learn group performing, music games, and working with other music students with bonding a great motivator a group will be performing in May at Brightview retirement center. In June is our annual outdoor cafe/picnic recital followed with pool party for those interested . In Fall

About Mary
Music degree from Lawrence University and Conservatory in Appleton, WI. Graduate work in conducting, piano, and vocal pedagogy at Westminster Choir College in Princeton. Also certified in Kindermusik for ages newborn to 7.

My studio, since 1993 is located in the back of my house and is in a family friendly location.

As my education originally was music education, elementary and secondary, I have gone on to be certified in teaching adults, both beginning and returning. There is so much piano and vocal educational material geared to the pre-school, the elementary, Jr-Sr high and Adult beginner and I promise we will have fun while learning.....

Anyone can learn an instrument and anyone can learn many different styles. Lessons will be geared toward your interests and goals, which we can work on at your lesson also.

The grea
test virtues of a music teacher are passion, patience, understanding, and communicating. You will experience this in the studio. Give yourself a treat of two months of lessons and I promise you will be playing and/or singing better than you expected.

Member of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association), NFMC (National Federation of Music Clubs),

*** Lesson Details ***
I am generally easy going and laid-back and will work with you to obtain specific goals such as a piece you would really like to learn. I can be strict if assignments are not followed or if there is no progression; we need to analyze why that is. I use many teaching methods as there are many different learning styles. The series I am currently using are Faber, Alfred, and Celebrate Piano! for pianists. Many singers are in Broadway, Disney, and/or English Reliquary and Italian Arias. There are so many wonderful choices! I can guarantee after three months you will be playing some music you like, and you will be reading music, and able to perform if you wish (starting small). With singing you will have basic knowledge of proper posture, breathing, and increased range. I also so enjoy people and communicating so you will feel comfortable taking lessons, and I believe that is one major factor of success in learning an instrument: the student-teacher relationship And second for children, especially the young, is the parent-teacher relationship .

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio: Yamaha baby grand piano, Kawaii studio upright and keyboard, Yamaha keyboard, recording abilities, computer software, couch and two chairs, parents can sit in on lesson. Also have computer programs for note learning, composition, as well as giving you apps to download.

*** Specialties ***
Different methods for different students. Piano: mostly Faber and Alfred series. "Prodigy": Aaron/Thompson series. I've also had graduate study in teaching the Adult Beginner! As I was a church music director 1994 till last September, I am very familiar with traditional and contemporary sacred music, learning and performing. If you also wish to combine singing and accompanying yourself on piano or guitar lessons can be tailored.

I'm a music teacher in DC and also case manage special needs students.

About Charles
Outside of teaching percussion and musical performances I have worked in special education for over 15 years.

My life of music started knee high at the age of 4 playing drums and piano. At the age of 15 I gave my first musical performance, from that stage on I knew my talent had found a home.

In the 11th grade I toured with a local funk group in Washington DC through 26 cities learning music and the life of travel at an early age. During my last high school and college years I performed extensively playing classical, jazz, rock, funk, go-go, gospel, marching band, R&B, and with local rap artist.

Recording credits and highlights include work with Def Jam artist Steady Eddy, recording go-go Mario with Double Agent Rock, and recordings with Little Benny and the Masters.

My other musical passion is teaching. Throughout my col
lege years and beyond I served as a percussion instructor and assistant band director at Morgan State University. As part of the Morgan State University Magnificent Marching Machine I served as a instructional leader in music and performance mentor for the team. I taught part time as a percussion instructor at Milford Mill High School giving individual lessons for over 10 years.

Musical inspiration is an important element to the refinement of my craft. A few personal musical influences are Buddy Rich, Max Roach, Neil Peart (Rush), Dennis Chambers, (Santana), George Gray (Roberta Flack), Ricky Wellman (Miles Davis), Quinton Mack-Davis (Rare Essence) and Michael Bland (Prince).

*** Lesson Details ***
Within the first three months of lessons student will gain a strong foundation of sight reading and basic drum techniques in both rudiment studies and playing the drum set. My style of teaching music consist of breaking each skill down into chunks and allowing students to learn using their individual learning styles. I utilize rewards for perfect practice and each lesson contains a safe, fun learning atmosphere with students exhibiting in their best behavior.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in store front studio, drum kit provided

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring a practice pad. Students should have a drum set.

Our son has never played in a marching band before but is interested in playing in the marching band when he attends college in July so we were specifically looking for an instructor who had marching band experience to teach our son since he's never participated in the marching band in high school. We saw Mr. Stewart's profile and decided to have him work with our son. That was the BEST decision that we could have ever made. We have been nothing but impressed with Mr. Stewart. He definitely has the gift of teaching and he is very patient, knowledgeable, and he challenges our son to get better by giving him homework after each session. Our son absolutely LOVES Mr. Stewart and he is always excited for each lesson and to practice what Mr. Stewart has taught him. Our son went from not playing in the marching band at all in high school to making his college band and receiving a scholarship all thanks to Mr. Stewart. We are very grateful for his outstanding teaching and we would definitely recommend Mr. Stewart 100%.

Charles is calm and patient, and yet gently pushes for better and better performance every lesson. As the parent, it is amazing to me to see how much my son has learned in only 3 lessons... and working on a drum set right from the beginning has been very inspiring to my son. We highly recommend Charles!

I LOVE teaching piano, and all the elements that come along with learning this instrument. Whether you want a solid classical training or you'd like to build on the basics to play with lead sheets, we'll have a blast going through the paces, learning to make this instrument fun!

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.

Hello! My name is Dalton, currently a music education major at West Virginia University. I grew up in Hedgesville being exposed to country and bluegrass as a child to now being a massive classical music fan.

About Deborah C.

Close
Brunswick, MD

View Full Profile

I adapt my approach depending upon each person's unique learning style. My goal is to instill a love of music for each student I teach. I have taught children as young as 3 and adults as old as 86, and children with autism and dyslexia, as well as exceptionally gifted young musicians. In each case, I passionately encourage students to find joy in music.

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.

Need a strong foundation of the basics of piano to learn to play those songs you love? Beginner lessons for all ages available in a comfortable and judgement free atmosphere. Learn the fundamentals of music theory, note reading, technique and more with a fresh and personal approach with every lesson.

About Merci
I was taught piano at the young age of 7 and have been continuously studying over the years. With pastors for parents, I grew up playing in church and various events in Okinawa, Japan. After graduating I moved to America and started teaching beginner piano lessons at a local piano store as a side job.

My experience working with and teaching children of all ages has strengthened my ability to explain lessons on music theory, technique, and musicality in a clear and concise way. Many of my former students were able to make weekly improvements free of confusion and frustration. I have a very laid back personality and find it very fulfilling connecting with my students as I pass on my knowledge and love for music. For a couple years I was self taught, that is when I learned pop and contemporary piano. There are many forms and styles of piano
playing, my goal is to help you find what you like best and to help you improve.

I am currently a piano teacher full time, so I am available almost any time! My lessons are taught from a comfortable condo in Charbonneau. If you find me a good fit as your teacher send me a message!

Experienced teacher
Accustomed to teaching to all different learning types
Personally tailor each piano lesson to fit the students needs and learning capabilities

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.
