    Voice Lessons

    (2 reviews)

    Music should be a fun and rewarding activity for all ages to enjoy. In my studio, the student will get personal and individualized attention where they can learn in a manner that best suits them. First and foremost, my goal is to allow the student to experience the joy of singing. I have an emphasis in vocal health, so my students will learn a healthy vocal technique, appropriate body alignment, performance techniques, fundamentals of music, and confidence. While my training is in classical voice and opera, I am also comfortable teaching musical theater, light jazz, and popular music. I have worked with children and adults alike, ranging from beginner to more advanced. I will travel to your home or you may come to my home studio. I have been teaching for over a year and am currently pursuing my masters in voice pedagogy which gives me valuable teacher training. -Students must have a keyboard/piano available for in-home lessons -Must be accessible via public transportation for in-home lessons Bio Sarah E, soprano, is a recent 2013 graduate of Towson University where she earned her bachelor of music in vocal performance, studying under Professor Theresa Bickham. Sarah’s roles at Towson include an ensemble member in The Goose of Cairo and Die Fledermaus, Jack’s Mom in Into the Woods, Witch/Shepherdess in Pasticcio Furioso, and Geraldine in A Hand of Bridge. Additionally, she performed as Jodi Juggler and Clown in Towson University Resident Children’s Opera Company’s Sid the Serpent who Wanted to Sing. In 2012 Ms. E participated in Little Patuxent Opera Institute, performing as the Sandman in Hansel and Gretel. Additionally, she was a member of the 2013 Hawaii Performing Arts Festival where she performed in the ensemble of Dido and Aeneas, as the Cercatrice in Suor Angelica, and was the Despina cover for CosÌ fan tutte. During the summer of 2015, she was one of 32 in the nation selected to participate in OperaWorks Emerging Artist Program in Los Angeles, CA. Ms. E is also an emerging solo artist in the Baltimore/Annapolis area as well as Boston. She sang locally with Shrine of the Little Flower parish and also is reputable as a soloist for weddings, funerals, and community/sporting music events. Most recently she was the National Anthem soloist for the USA Olympic Track and Field Qualifying Championships in Roxbury, MA.

  • LB Music School

    (17 reviews)

    I work with students in making their guitar experience personalized and enjoyable. I provide information to learn not only in your lessons, but also materials for you to learn outside of the lesson format. Most teachers provide you with lessons and that's it. You are left on your own for a week to see if you can remember correctly what you were taught in your last lesson. I am also flexible in my teaching and your learning. There is no one size fits all and I enjoy helping you discover new music and skills, but I also encourage students to help me discover new music as well. If there are songs you have always wanted to learn, let me know and we can work on the together. I love helping people learn. I love when student reach that "ah ha" moment when they really start to get something and realize that things are actually making progress.

  • Deyana Valchinova

    (16 reviews)

    I am a musician who has graduated from world class Conservatories such as the Oberlin Conservatory where I received my Bachelors Degree in Piano Performance and Piano Pedagogy, and the Boston Conservatory where I received my Masters Degree and Graduate Performance Diploma in Piano Performance. I have had incredible teachers and mentors like Peter Takacs, Spencer Myer, Gabriel Chodos, Michael Lewin, Yafei Chuang. With their guidance I have gained incredible knowledge about piano technique,musical phrasing, musical thinking,collaborating, and I have been able to be an inspiration to my students by passing to them all I have learned. As a participant at the Aspen Music Festival, I have seen marvelous performances of world renowned musicians, and that has enabled me to understand the beauty and complexity of music even more. Being exposed to such talent has given me even greater sensitivity and knowledge as a piano teacher. I am a native of the country of Bulgaria where I have been taught by the Russian school of piano teaching, which is very successful, methodical and inspiring. I love to see how much my students learn and how incredibly excited and thrilled they are when they have achieved their goal. I really enjoy listening to my students perform and I am always hugely proud.
