Top Rated Classical Pianists Around Ashburn, VA
I had the pleasure to work with Xen Live on May 14th, 2018 at Richland Golf Club, Middletown MD. He was very professional in every aspect: setting the speakers and the microphones ahead of time, providing a high quality equipment and being attentive to all the musicians including a singer, pianist, and violinist. The volume level was properly adjusted and the ceremony went as smoothly as possible despite the fact there was high wind at the site. I can't wait to work with Xen Live again, and highly recommend his business to everyone who is looking for a perfect wedding. Zhenya Zianouka, violinist pixieviolin.com
Alvin was great - patient with the kids and distractions in the house, skilled with our old and out-of-tune piano, and passionate about the piano and music.
My 15 year old daughter has being "playing" with a guitar for a couple of years now. I wanted her to get some proper training and Steve is an inspiration for her. His love of guitar and music is infectious and he knows how to teach the technical side, without it becoming boring. I also grabbed my guitar and joined in. We have now set up a weekly schedule and I hope to be the dad of a serious rock and roll guitarist in the near future. Thanks Steve!
Sadie is a accomplished musician who is a fine pianist as well as organist. As a music director at a Catholic church, I have employed Sadie as a subsitute organist. I also attended a piano recital she gave as a senior at Hillsdale College. Sadie's musicality and versatility make her an ideal choice as a solo artist or as an accompanist.
Great performance! Will definitely hire again.
John Kunu is flexible in his approach to teaching, he brings many styles & skills to the keyboard, and he is willing to teach to what the goals of the student are rather than a regimented steps approach. John has been my daughter's piano teacher for several years. We are a musical family so it was important to us to choose a teacher with the depth in classical but also the breadth of knowledge in contemporary pop music, in order to keep our teen engaged in what she was learning. John's flexibility to teach to her interest areas while still making sure she mastered foundational skills and repertoire are rare in a piano teacher. We love that he weaves both classical instruction and improvisation so that a student is comfortable playing a piece of Bach as well as the latest songs on the radio. This has kept the learning fresh and relevant. But the greatest thing of all is when we hear our daughter wander over to the piano and just play -- she sounds beautiful and it is utter joy hearing your child make music and know that she will have this for a lifetime.
Ms. Nicole Lamm was my very first voice teacher. I started taking voice lessons with her at about age 13, and continued for over 5 years, for all of 8th-12th grades. Being at the most beginning stages of singing, Nicole not only introduced me to a genre of music that I never thought I would sing, but that I would easily fall in love with. She brought me from an inexperienced child to a young lady, preparing me and instilling in me musicianship, work ethic and and a passion for classical music, including art song, musical theater and opera. Her teachings are affective for anyone, young or old, beginner or professional. Because of her patience and time spent with me all those years, I have been singing for over 10 and am continuing my studies as an opera singer, a career that began with her and will last a lifetime.
Because of Sam's background in both classical and contemporary singing, Sam is a very versatile voice teacher. Whether one seeks to learn how to sing opera, musical theater, pop or soul, Sam's your guy!
Each artist creates a unique work. Our company focuses on exceeding expectations of our clients and making amazing memories!
Jonathan has played for several events for me. He is one of the most gifted piano players I have ever worked with, playing with heart and passion that lights up the room! Guests and clients are always impressed with his performances. He plays everything from Jazz and Pop, to Broadway and classical.
My students progress quickly. I teach students how to produce a good sound and be technically proficient from the very first day. My lessons also involve music theory and music history in order to create a well-rounded performer. My students and I study a wide variety of repertoire, from Bach to Prokofiev. I teach how to critically listen to oneself, and how to practice efficiently. My goal is for students to become more and more independent. My lessons are distinguished by strong attention to basics as well as finer nuances. Equipped with these skills and knowledge, students will be able to apply them to whatever they choose to learn and play.
Ron gave me a lot of help when I was learning to accompany singers and saxophone players. He showed me chord configurations that made me sound like a pro. I was asked to join a jazz combo. He was also great at accompanying me as a singer.
We were in Arlington for 3 yrs until we had to move because of a State Department job in D.C. My 4-year-old took piano lessons with "Ms.Penny" the entire time. She was one of her youngest students, Ms. Penny said, and she said she doesn't teach children who are younger than 4, so I doubted they'd get very far working together. I was so wrong! At her first recital, my daughter played two beginning pieces from her repertoire book flawlessly. She also played a duet with Ms. Penny, and it was so great, I got teary-eyed. My daughter was proud of herself, rightfully so, and I was proud of her. (And I still am.) By the time we had to move, she was 7 and beginning Clementi Sonatinas. Penny's an outstanding, well-educated pianist who's used to playing concerts, but somehow she also knows how to work outstandingly with little children, it's obvious. Other parents and I talked, and we agreed Penny does almost anything to keep her students happy and engaged with their piano studies. Lessons were fun. There was never any shortage of laughter in there. And kids liked to practice for Ms. Penny, it seemed. She was the best introduction to piano we could have asked for.
I highly recommend Simon for your wedding, funeral, or other need. I was blessed and honored to have Simon provide the music for a funeral service earlier this year. With Simon's talent as a vocalist, as well as his skills as a composer, pianist, organist, and accompanist, the music was superb. He worked with me closely on the planning, and his suggestions for the service were excellent, including the addition of a soloist with whom Simon had worked. Many people told me afterwards how much the music touched them and uplifted them on a sad occasion, and I was touched and uplifted as well.
As a beginning adult learner, I greatly appreciate John's patience, encouragement, and musical expertise. John draws during each lesson from his own experiences and education to illustrate musical concepts and impart solid technical knowledge. He sets meaningful expectations for the learner and yet is very gentle in uncovering and correcting student weaknesses. John is a warm, generous, and good-humored teacher, and it has been a delight to be his student. I am very happy with the progress I have made on the classical guitar under John's direction.
I take great care and pride in being a jazz pianist and performer. This begins with my own study and practice of the instrument and extends to performing live. It is vitally important to me that I provide guests and audiences with an enjoyable and memorable musical experience.
A wonderful pianist and amazing teacher! Couldn't have asked for someone better to learn from the past few years!
Hi. I'm a pianist who is available for parties, events and weddings. I have my own gear, so I can pretty much go anywhere. I also collaborate with other musicians (especially in jazz), so if you need a small band, let me know. I charge between $20-$30 an hour depending on the venue, research for certain music (if you want something specific) and travel. If you need a band, it will be determined on what you are looking for and how many people I need to cover what you are looking for.
Julien did a really good job playing for our wedding. Our original musician cancelled on us last minute and Julien was able to pull together a great set for us and even learn a piece that my now-wife really wanted to have played during the reception. He was really friendly but also very professional and knowledgable.
Very dedicated and extremely professional with services and performces..
We hired Kim's trio for our jazz soiree and they were excellent! Kim let us know a few days prior to the event that he couldn't make it, and gave us the option of canceling or having the trio w/ another pianist playing in his stead. We could have gotten another band altogether (three replied to our request on Thumbtack), but we went w/ his option of the substitute pianist and could not have been happier. The trio was fabulous, attendees from the young to the not so young loved all the tunes, and everyone had the best time. We are definitely putting Kim and his trio or quartet on our slate of events for 2018.
