About

I offer private piano lessons in Severna Park. I accept students of any age, (my youngest started at age 3, my oldest was 83), and any level. Music in general enhances overall learning; learning to play an instrument aids concentration, coordination, and confidence. My lessons are both educational and fun. Even the students who first come "because mommy made me" leave a lesson having learned something, and eager to apply that lesson at home. I offer at least 4 performance opportunities in different settings each year, not required, but highly encouraged. I have a different approach with adults. From "I've always wanted to play the piano" beginners to "It was my major, but it's been years" advanced students, adults have many different reasons for approaching the keyboard. My teaching style with each of my adult students, therefore, has to fit their needs and desires. I love what I do, and I do it well. Piano is my forte.

I provide the very best music and guitar instruction in the Washington, DC, area. You don't have to take my word for it, though. See my reviews here and on my website. I teach all styles of guitar lessons such as rock, jazz, blues, folk, country, and beginning classical. In addition, you have access to guided rehearsals (Jam Class) in order to develop your skills playing in a group. I emphasize creativity and improvisation, so that you can learn to jam on your favorite tunes with others. Unlike many other teachers, I have studied and continued to study with some of the best music educators (W.A. Mathieu, Mick Goodrick, John McNeil, Larry Snitzler) so that I can bring the best from the conservatory to "just plain folks."

I offer private flute lessons for fun and skill! I teach the fundamentals, such as breathing, posture, finger technique as well as different musical styles and expression through music. My teaching experience includes students between the ages of 8 and 70. I believe in the individual approach and decide what music books and methods are appropriate after the first few lessons with the student. Everyone learns differently! Flute lessons are fun, educational and helpful. Playing the flute is a great skill that lets you appreciate and express music. It also enhances your capability to focus and the quickness of your mind since you think of a few different things simultaneously when playing the instrument, and the fun part, you can play your favorite song, compose something yourself or have fun playing duets with me or with fellow flute students.

I teach and instruct piano lessons. Lessons will include piano technique, music reading, rhythm counting, performance pieces, duet music, music theory, composing, and much more. My students and I typically pick out music pieces together and I would give mini assignments to the student that are readily within their reach given a bit of practice. The type of technical and musical training I give to my students would enable them to relate to the music at hand and allow them the ability execute and express the music. Performance pieces range from various periods and genres including music composed by W. Gillock, David C Glover, M Mier, C. Rollin, J.S. Bach, W.A. Mozart, L.V. Beethoven, F. Chopin, R. Schumann, F. Mendelssohn, F.J.Haydn, D. Kabakevsky, E. Macdowell ,and Scott Joplin to name a few. I host recitals to local nursing home residents on behalf of my students. I am an approved adjudicator for the Piano Guild Exams, as well as the National Federation of Music Clubs' annual spring festivals. My students love the fact that I let them choose and pick pieces. I give out rewards to motivate them, especially the little ones. I also assign sight-reading pieces for the students; however, when the time is right and when needed, I do play the pieces for them to hear. I have over 15 years of experience in teaching and over 20 years of experience in performing.

About

I am a piano and voice teacher with over 15 years experience teaching children and adults from beginner to late intermediate levels. I come to homes in the Chantilly, Centerville, and South Riding areas of Northern Virginia. Rates are competitive. I also teach on camera acting and drama. I teach all ages, but most of my beginner students are between 7 and 12. I enjoy working with this age group because they are a lot of fun and it is great to witness how quickly they learn new things! Some students who started with me as beginners are now teenagers and are performing at the intermediate level. Aside from performing more complex pieces, they also get to do popular songs they like. For many of them, music from the TV show "Glee" is a big favorite! Some of my favorite composers are Anton Dvoreck, JS Bach, Ludwig Von Beethoven, and Scott Joplin. Some of my favorite bands and musicians are Paul Simon, The Beatles, U2, Tori Amos, Alicia Keys, Coldplay, and the B-52's.
