*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that every student has his/her own need because we are all unique as human beings, every one of us has their stronger and weaker skills and my job as a teacher is to find the best tool to pass to the given student.

I am strict but fun, whichever amount the student needs more.

I use the Suzuki books because the songs (and later pieces) in are very good, popular, fun, and evenly progressive.

Achievements depend also on the student and the amount of practicing done at home. I as a teacher can only do that much in passing my knowledge and spur the student own.
Practicing at home is very, very important.

My musical career started in my hometown of Belgrade, Serbia, and has lead me on a journey all around the world. After obtaining a Bachelor’s of Music degree from University of Belgrade in 2008, I received The Catherine Royce Alderson Memorial scholarship for an Artist Diploma program at the prestigious Glenn Gould School of The Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. Immediately after, in 2010 I became a recipient of The John Paul Music Scholarship for the Master of Music program at The Catholic University of America, in Washington DC, graduating in May of 2013.
Throughout my music career, I have been an active member of numerous orchestras. Starting with the University of Belgrade’s Symphony Orchestra when she performed at Belgrade’s “Kolarcev Narodni Univerzitet” Hall and Sava Centar, Royal Conservatory Orchestra when I performed in
Toronto Centre for the Arts and Koerner Hall, to CUA Symphony Orchestra which brought me to Carnegie Hall.
In 2006, I toured the prestigious concert halls in Holland, Belgium, and Luxembourg, such as Concertgebouw in Amsterdam with the National Youth Orchestra of Holland. In 2007, I was accepted into Jeunesses Musicales World Orchestra (JMWO), and has since been both second violin principal and section violinist.

About Raymund
Raymund de la Pena has been playing music professionally for the past 32 years and was introduced to music at an early age. He started playing the piano at age 8 and shifted to the guitar a year later when he heard "yesterday"by the Beatles, the reason for the move to a different instrument was inevitable as he states "I heard some nuances and sonic ideas that the instrument wasn't giving to me and pretty much i heard that on the guitar from the get go". And so,with his fascination for music he went to get his college degree in music performance.After graduation he played gigs all over the world( jazz bars, hotel gigs,session work etc...). In 2001 ,he was given the oportunity to be the musical director of the broadway musical "RENT" in Singapore where it got rave reviews.In 2003 he went to perform on a cruise ship in europe that traveled
to 20 countries as a musical director for the showband.

In 2011 he released his debut record "The Long Road Taken" independently with his group(composed of session musicians)the "RDP Project" wherein it featured all of his original compositions, describing it as :"The Long Road Taken is an amalgamation of the different facets of jazz,particularly in a quartet setting".

He has performed with Victor Jones( renown drummer) at the Zinc bar in New York and at Skippers in Newark,New Jersey.He has also performed with other Jazz artists such as Eliane Amherd ,Elin Kathleen Melgarejo,Doug Little,Mel Davis and have attended master classes by the great trumpet player Eddie Henderson,jazz great Charlie Byrd,jazz legends Ray Brown and Herb Ellis just to name a few.
Ray's playing and improvisational style is described as modern -which blends the relaxed and ductile articulation which is akin to horn players,but yet deeply grounded in the jazz tradition of swing, melody and the blues.

Degrees/training: Bachelor of Music (Major in Classical Guitar) University of the Philippines.

I graduated from George Mason University with a Master's in Education, and have taught special education in the classroom for 5 years. I recently made the decision to pursue my passion--music--as a full time profession.

In addition to teaching, I play both solo and with a band at many local festivals, restaurants and coffeehouses, and am a regular musician at my church. I am an award winning songwriter and recording artist and have released two original albums in 2007 and 2016, one of which can be found on iTunes.

My lessons combine theory concepts with a variety of music genres such as rock, pop, and classical that will make your child want to practice. My main goal in teaching is to share my love of music with students and inspire them t
o be as excited about music as I am.

I am currently taking beginner and intermediate students ages 5-18 for piano and 7-18 for guitar. I look forward to getting to know you and your child and beginning our musical journey together!

Rachel knows her stuff but I felt like she was rushing our lessons or cutting them short for the next student. The lessons were also generic and all we did was warm-ups. She'd promise we'd get to the song next time but we never got through the entire thing after five lessons and there was no progression.

Piano lessons with Rachel were a gift from a friend and it has been one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. From day one I knew I had the right teacher because of how she responded to all of my questions of “why”. She appreciates and feeds off of my curiosity which in turn nourishes and excites me. She explains the theory and why music works the way it does. We’ve even dabbled into voice a bit. Continuing piano lessons with her has been the best thing I’ve done this year and I’m looking forward to many more lessons.

Rachel is an outstanding piano teacher -- especially for adult students.

As an exceptional teacher, she knows exactly how to motivate a student by making the subject both fun and rewarding. She knows music theory so extensively that her lessons are more than simply about playing keys on the piano. My understanding of the piano is so much richer because she presents every lesson in the context of theory.

Rachel is particularly adept in tailoring a piano program around the student's interests and learning style. This has made the lessons fun as I quickly learned to play songs that interest me.

I would recommend Rachel for any student -- young or mature -- who is interested in learning to play the piano as a lifetime skill.

An award winning, Tatiana Chulochnikova received her professional training at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow as well as Oberlin Conservatory and the Juilliard School.

In recent seasons Tatiana Chulochnikova appeared as a soloist with orchestra, recitalist and concertmaster with leading early music ensembles throughout the United States, Europe and Russia. The highlights include appearances as a co
