“It has been a great learning experience for my two daughters. I don’t think I could ever find a better piano teacher. Not only does Ms. Heather share her great talent with my kids, she is also very friendly and always cheerful and looking forward to teaching them. My daughters have improved dramatically since we started with her a few years ago. We also really enjoy the convenience of in home lessons! I highly recommend Lessons In Your Home for music lessons. My daughters now look forward to their piano practice daily”. Great Falls, VA Resident

My 11 year old daughter just started lessons with Kevin and I couldn't be happier with the service he provides. He is wonderful with her as a beginner and he clearly has the experience and ability to be an excellent instructor for higher level students as well

I took cello lessons from Dorotea with no prior cello experience, although I did have prior experience playing piano. She was a wonderful teacher, and is incredibly skilled at playing cello. She did a great job explaining techniques in ways that I could understand, and she helped me learn what to listen for so that when I was practicing, I could correct my own mistakes. She would also spend extra time on any techniques I was having trouble with to make sure I learned them well. On top of all this she is just very friendly and a nice person! I highly recommend her, whether you have any prior music experience or not! The only reason I am not still taking lessons with her is that I moved to another state.

She was always an amazing teacher. Patient and was able to switch from having a fun conversation to getting right into it. Wouldn't just focus on the instrument you were learning but would bring exercises on the piano (I played Viola a bit of Cello) to help explain topics. Would recommend Mrs. Marquita to anyone looking to either pick up a new instrument or refine their skills.

I found Victor here on this website for a guitar teacher for my son and when it came down to needing to hire a teacher Victor had followed up with me. So I took advantage of the first free lesson and he's been my sons guitar teacher ever since. Victor is very patient and knowledgeable, the personal attention and care he gives to each individual child is wonderful. You can tell that he has a love for music and this is his passion. I've spoken to other families that he teaches(some for several years) and they all agree. He works well with my son on incorporating styles and songs he is interested in as well as teaching music theory and basics. My son was a beginner 6 months ago and now he is playing full songs confidently. He loves coming to guitar class and learning new techniques, and songs. I plan on continuing until my son can pay for lessons himself. I highly recommend Victor Crisen.

Kim is a fabulous violin instructor. As an educator myself, I tend to be more critical of the professionals who teach my children. Kim speaks to them at as mature students, sets her expectations with care and obvious knowledge (for example, she told them that she was excited to find their areas for because that meant that they had good things to focus on and work together, rather than chastising them for failing) and encourages them to take ownership of their musicianship. She also spoke well of their previous teachers, highlighting what they learned well from them, and also highlighting her differences and then discussing why she does things the way she does. I find this to be incredibly professional, as we have had other instructors who did exactly the opposite, and in the process undermined my children's confidence in the work that they had done elsewhere. She re-ordered her schedule to accommodate having both girls the same night, and has been responsive to any and all questions they or I have. I would recommend her without hesitation, and am so thankful to have found her!

Katy is truly dedicated to teaching the cello and making sure you understand why and how to accomplish the focus of the practice assignments. She encourages you and provides concise support in accomplishing techniques needed to play the instrument. She is a very pleasant person as well.

If you are interested in playing the cello and you are looking for somebody to teach and inspire you, I would highly recommend Maxfield. I was 32 when I bought a cheap cello, and I was introduced to Maxfield through friends of friends while I was looking for a cello instructor in Madison, WI. I had absolutely no idea what I was against as I started my lessons. I had played some recorder, drums, harmonica and guitar in the past, but I had had no experience with a bowed instrument. I also lacked any proper musical training, apart from music classes in middle-school. Later on it became apparent that I wasn't going to be the best pupil: I had a full-time job, and I wasn't putting in the necessary time practicing on the cello to gain better command of the instrument. There are a few things about Maxfield that made me hang on and continue my classes with him for nearly two years: - First, his love for the cello, his excitement when sharing something about his instrument with you, the pleasure he gets from music, it is contagious. This may sound cheesy to some, but, to me, this one goes at the very top. - Second, even when I had not made any progress since the week before, Maxfield would always put something new on the table at our lessons, maybe a new exercise, a new piece or a simple snippet of a bigger piece (Bach? Bartok? Michael Jackson?), a new way of fixing my poor posture, an anecdote on why we do something in that specific way. This was important, especially because new info/experiences develops a feeling of progress, and that is essential for my motivation. (I would like to open parentheses to add that I am not a native speaker, so he had to play around with examples/explanations at times to make sure I *really* get it, and that he never made me feel guilty for slacking, which would have been a motivation killer.) - Third, he can access the full range of what the cello can do. This is his instrument, no doubt. I very much enjoyed the times he would pull out some (usually complicated) piece he had studied to show why a certain exercise is important, or how a seemingly complex progression of sounds is actually quite simple, or how people have taken a simple technique and gone crazy with it. It's nice to see what's possible on the cello, even if when you know you can't possibly do it yourself. I put this last, because chances are, people who identify themselves as "cello instructors" will be sufficiently proficient on the instrument, especially for someone at my level. I did perform on stage with my cello once, when I accompanied a Turkish folk song at a cultural event on campus, in front of ~250 guests. Although the lack of experience showed, I hit all the right notes at the right times, and I consider this my highest achievement on the cello. Nowadays, when people ask me about my favorite instrument, I tell them "even though I can't do it right, it is the cello." I believe this is Maxfield's highest achievement with me.

Gosh, you simply can't do better. Where else are you going to find a classically trained bluegrass expert with a Masters degree, giving affordable private lessons? Chris is just amazing.

About

I have over 20 years of experience and have worked with individuals ranging from 6 to 76 years old. I value quality as both a performer and an educator but never at the expense of enjoyment! As a teacher, I share my knowledge through individualized lessons, catering to the goals of the student. As a performer, I play a range of genres and eras and will arrange specific works upon request.

About

My students excel in performance and in achieving their goals. By learning to play well, and developing a performance mindset, they enjoy playing with others about their age usually, and competitively for groups they would like to join. There is fun just for the sake of music making itself.

I have taught children to play string instruments for 11 years using the Suzuki method! The Suzuki Method requires parent involvement, daily listening and practice as well as regular lesson attendance. It is an educational method that addresses the needs of the whole child with the primary focus of developing life skills through the vehicle of music study. I help families learn to communicate more effectively and practice productively. Each and everyone of our students achieves superior playing ability and chartacter! Ms. Glenda
