I have a degree and certification in violin and piano from the Boston Conservatory as well as a Master's Degree from the University of Maryland. I have had additional training and certification as a Suzuki teacher from The Suzuki Teacher Training Institute. I am a member of SAGWA-Suzuki Association of the Greater Washington Area as well as SAA-Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have played all around the world including the Vatican, White House, Paris, Russia, England and Wales as well as in Concert Halls such as Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center. I have taken students with me to perform as well in these countries and also every major concert hall in the Washington, D.C. area. I give my students opportunities to perform whenever there is an opportunity. In addition I work with students to earn music scholarships to private school
s and colleges. I am also a judge in the Young Artist Award in Maryland. In addition, I have received two White House awards for my performances at the White House, I am also a member of Psi Chi International Honor Society.
Music has been an important part of my life. It represents so much that is good in life and I do my best to communicate this to my students. I am training my students not just to be musicians but to love music for life.
*** Lesson Details *** I treat each student as an individual since everyone is different. For some I might use a traditional approach, some just the Suzuki approach and others a combination of techniques. Whatever produces the best results. My goal is not to make strictly classical musicians but to train students to love music and carry this love throughout life. My repertoire consists of everything including traditional, Suzuki, Disney, Showtunes, etc. I have taken students to perform little concerts at the White House, schools, hospitals and concert halls to get the real feel of performing. I view lessons as a three way relationship between myself, the student and the parent so that the parent is not left out. I even have a small group called Musical Magic which incorporates magic into music. I feel I am laid back but am able to accomplish my goal through positive reinforcement. Every child or student wants to feel good about his/her playing. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible. If you want online lessons, please contact me through Take Lessons since I have additional availability to teach online. In the past six months my students have performed for the National Humane Society at their animal ball, a multi teacher recital on a local stage, and just two weeks ago seven of them performed at Strathmore. This summer I have two more concerts planned. Coming up will be an all instrument graduation with several other teachers where students receive medals for their performances. No student is required to perform but if they want to the opportunity is there. All students are required to have an instrument prior to beginning lessons. If students need to rent a violin, I will provide you with the name of a violin dealer that both rents and sells string instruments. Piano students must have a piano or keyboard.
I have also started a toddler music appreciation program geared for the 1-4age range. The purpose of this program is to expose very young children to the fun of Music through instruments, songs and play.
*** Studio Equipment *** I teach at home and have both a grand piano and electric keyboard in addition to a harp and violin.
*** Travel Equipment *** When my students have to travel to perform, I make sure they have everything they need.
*** Specialties *** Traditional and Suzuki approaches for both violin and piano. I also teach children with learning disabilities.and have extensive summer programs to help students with auditions for youth orchestras and school orchestras. At this point in time I am only accepting beginner to intermediate level students.

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.
But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!
I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students. That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.
Bottom Line Is... I can help you learn and progress on your instrument faster...
Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

I am Samuel, am 30 years old and currently living in Ivory Coast. I have been teaching English language for 6 years now and its been so exciting. I combine practical and pictorial examples with my teaching to make students able to relate with the subject in their daily conversations and interactions. My classes are fun and exciting
I have been in the technology industry for more than 18 years, but always learning something new every day. I want to bring that experience to my students in the most efficient and relevant way possible.
"She couldn’t be any more patient. Would definitely recommend."
"Great! Etana is informative and patient! Excited for my next lessons!"
"The proof is in the pudding. The pudding was excellent, so I am going to take more lessons with Matthew! Matthew, you rock! Daniel"
"Daniel helped me with many different mathematical obstacles while working with and teaching me excel. It was a great learning experience and I became a lo
t more experienced with excel."
"Matthew was a great instructor for Intermediate level Excel training. He was able to help me with navigational tips and shortcuts, formulas and totals be
tween sheets within one spreadsheet, as well as understanding Vlookup functionality. I highly recommend Matthew if you are in need of Excel training."
"Just what I needed
"After showing each rule or procedure, Josh asks you to do the steps so that he knows you understood. He is open to teaching either slower or faster at yo
ur request and offered to help, at no extra charge, if you have a problem using an interactive software tool he can use from his home computer. He is a master in Photoshop software."
"It's difficult to even express how grateful I am for the time I spent with Christopher- the irony being that, with his help, my words could undoubtedly be
more confident and precise. Over 6 weeks, Christopher managed to teach me a subject that was previously- despite alternate intervention and endless review- impenetrable. Patient, kind, and brilliant, I can think of no one more qualified for teaching another human being. Truly blessed to have come across this profile, as are you."
"Etana was great! I look forward to working with her more! She's very thorough and accommodating to what I wanted to work on. I loved that she gave me that
option to do what I wanted and learn what I needed to learn. It saves so much time."
