About

Testimonials about the services of voice coach, Sally b. Waller of VocalzMusic & Publishing are as follows: "Sally B is the greatest!!! At first, I didn't know the true art of singing. Working with her, she's teaching me all the fundamentals to mold me into the superstar that I am destined to be. Thank you for everything Sally B!!!" - Chris Walker, Culpeper, Va. "I have traveled the country & worked in various cities over the years and have worked with many different vocal coaches. I've spent time with some of the most discriminating ears in the business also - like Timbaland & Nate 'Danja' Hills - and I can tell you that to be the best, you have to work with the best. Sally B. is simply - the best. When I needed a vocal coach for my pop artist - Alex Caruso - I was looking for someone to help mold & shape her voice into something even greater. Sally B. delivered. When I told people I had Alex in voice lessons, they questioned the need for it. But now those same people hear Alex - after working with Sally B. for several months - and they are amazed at the growth. Vocal coaching isn't just for singers who need help with pitch, etc. Vocal coaching is also for incredible singers who want to be the very best. And Sally B. - with her positive, fun personality & vast knowledge of vocal training techniques - is the only vocal coach I want helping my artist chase perfection." - Gordon Humphrey, Hump Day Music "I learned about it in the newspaper; yes, I'd recommend her to someone in need of her services. I enjoyed the lessons she provided the group. I would have enjoyed having more singing time (alone and together). I did like the before and after sound. I had a very pleasant experience with Ms. Sally. She was very professional and gave encouraging and positive feedback. I enjoyed Ms. Sally's gentle and caring coaching and encouragement. The "after" sounds amazing compared to the before. I had fun learning to sing the Mariah Carey song, even though it was a scary undertaking. I learned how to sing with a more airy voice, which is something I never practiced before. Thank you Sally!" - Semi Private Student, Fredericksburg, Va. "My daughter Lindsey and I learned about VMP via an exhausted search for the right vocal coach/teacher/mentor. We would most difinately recommend Sally to anyone needing vocal services. Our first few sesseions set the foundation for our Going Forward Plan for vocal training. Sally takes the time to explain the different aspects of vocal technique, assessing Lindsey's skill level, etc. The specific feature(s) that I like most are following: *Sally's warmth and understanding *Sally's professionalism *Sally's own experience in the music industry and her longevity. *Sally's knowledge of vocal tones, range, etc *And Sally's family My experience has been one of vocal growth and I am so happy we found Sally. My daughter's vocal training has given her the ability to sing "Someone like You" (Adele) and other songs that you have to have range for. Sally helps Lindsey prepare for her local pageant preliminaries. Anyone that needs a vocal coach and sign up you will be extremely happy." - Linda (RE: VocalzMusic pageant prep client.) "I would absolutely recommend Sally b. Waller for anyone who is looking for quality voice instruction. I was so fortunate to find her in my local area via the web! First few sessions exceeded my expectations. She made my daughter feel so comfortable and confident! She knows just what to focus on with her students to excel. It's been an outstanding experience! Sally b. Waller is a phenomenal singing coach for all ages! I have seen such a dramatic difference in my four year old daughter since just a month ago. We began singing lessons because of my daughter's love of music, and I am so pleased that she is learning the art from one of the best! I cannot wait to see the progress over the next few months! She truly accommodates younger children in her lessons!" -Kelly ( RE 4 year old student participant of Sally b's "Singing In Color" sessions for early learners.) "I found her through an internet search. I would definitely recommend her. She is able to bring out the best in my daughter by teaching her to understand the basic fundamentals of vocals and then building upon that knowledge to help her gain more confidence in the gift she already possesses. She presents a comfortable learning environment which really makes it easier for a student to relax and focus on the lessons. Afterwards my daughter was excited that she would be learning to hone her craft. I like that the environment is comfortable; not intimidating. Given that this is a one-on-one setting I feel that's the most important element to get the best from a student. She is a professional that knows what she'd doing. She was able to identify areas of weaknesses and strengths then set out a short term and long term road map towards reaching personal goals. The cost is very reasonable compared to the services we've received and there were never any problems with scheduling. She's very willing to accommodate. I wanted my daughter to learn how to utilize her instrument while at the same time gain more confidence in the talent I knew she already had. After hearing her before and after recordings from her first session the look on her face was priceless. It gave her a greater determination to focus on building her voice and her ear for music. Highly recommended!" - Lisa - (RE VocalzMusic client of Vocal Choreography. See more reviews on our website or or Facebook page.

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.

About

AGS (Ashburn Guitar Studio) offers quality instruction in the classical guitar: My students are usually referred by Loudoun County Public Schools' middle and high school guitar teachers and they receive four to five, 30-minute private classical guitar lessons each month for $30 per lesson. The classical technique requires students to play with nails (no plectrum) on a nylon-string guitar. The standard repertoire includes the music of notable composers such as Sor, Aguado, Carulli, Carcassi, Giuliani etc. Quarterly studio recitals are held that feature AGS students and local professionals.

About

I have been teaching private piano lessons for children and adults for 15 years as well as group piano classes in Loudoun and Fairfax County Public Schools for a year. During these years, I used many different methods, tailoring the lessons towards the students needs, wants, interests and capabilities. I am a strong advocate for teaching music notations but also understand that many children have difficulties with dots on five lines, so I use colors and numbers to train their eyes and help them learn songs by ear. I love to play the piano, and also love to share the joy of playing music.

About

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.
