Dr. Bella Oster has been my two sons' piano teacher since they were 4 1/2 years old. My sons are now 7 and 8 years old. Dr. Oster has been a wonderful piano teacher. I also took piano lessons when I was young for 9 years. But Dr. Oster has taught my kids so much more than my own piano teacher in less than half the time. They can now play advanced pieces like Chopin's Nocturne in E Minor, Op. 72 No. 1 and Kabalevsky's Sonatina 1 Op. 13 No. 1. She has a very effective teaching method that trains kids to have an analytical mind which helps them tackle difficult pieces more easily. She also provides the opportunity for her students to perform in major concert stages around the world. We had just come back from an Eastern European Concert tour in Prague, Krakow, and Budapest over the summer which her music school has organized. This was a wonderful experience for me and my kids.
While I’ve only started my violin lessons Kirsten has been a wonderful teacher whom I know will be able to help me learn to play the violin.
My teenager takes clarinet lessons at the music space. Her instructor, Zach, is great! The entire team is very professional and kind. I would highly recommend "The Music Space".
My son and three grandchildren all study with Georgia,. It is a rare teach who can work easily and productively with both school children and adults. My 12 yo twin grandsons think lessons with Miss Georgia are "fun and interesting!" They also made Junior High All-County Orchestra in 6th grade (their 3rd year of lessons) so I would say as a flutist and flute teacher that they are progressing well as is their sister (age 10). My son went back to playing and taking lessons after he observed the children's lessons.
Caitlin is an excellent teacher, instrumentalist and has a great way with her students. If you want your child to learn Violin or Viola, she is the teacher to choose.
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.
Sebastian Stefanovic is an excellent musician. As a high school student, I cast him as our Fiddler in Fiddler on the Roof. The director and I (as music director) wanted a violin player to play live on stage and on the "roof." He did both. I was so impressed with his talent, that I asked him to join the pit whenever possible, giving him violin, oboe and flute parts when it enhanced the music. [The theatre is small and only can field a pit of 3-5 players.] He was rose to the occasion with every challenge we threw at him, including stage direction. He competently related to and appropriately countered our Tevya, creating a unique experience on our stage. He gives a nuanced perspective to his music. I would love to work with him again, and would not hesitate to hire him. He is prepared, conscientious, takes direction well, and is a pleasure to work with.
Jonathan is great tutor. He helped me with my bowing technique during scales. Also, he assisted me in learning to play the viola by ear and notes. He is very professional and affable. I definitely recommend him to all ages.
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!
Ms. Linnea Marchie is an excellent instructor for my daughter. She is enthusiastic about teaching violin and brings positive energy to each lesson so that my daughter looks forward her session and actually practices almost everyday ( It is amazing). We like Linnea very much.
I have been taking lesson from Brandon for a few months now and I couldn't be more happy with my progress. Brandon gives very constructive feedback that help me develop my skills. He always encourages me when i am doing well and provides great feedback where I can improve upon. He has been really good about teaching me at my own pace. Continuing lessons while I work full-time is challenging, but Brandon is understanding of my busy schedules. I highly recommend Brandon as a teacher for all ages.
My name is Melissa L., and I am currently employed by the Cecil County Public Schools as a strings teacher. While traveling from four different schools, I am also offering private lessons for strings and piano. I have acquired a degree in music education with a concentration in violin from the University of Delaware. I have been playing the violin for 17 years and also have been giving private violin lessons for the last nine years. Although my main concentration is focused on the violin, I provide private lessons for viola, cello, string bass, and piano. As an educator, I strive to provide students with the knowledge to become highly skilled and competent musicians. Whether music becomes a hobby or profession, I want my students to appreciate and engage in their learning as aspiring musicians. Music has made such a positive impact on my life, and I hope to inspire my students to love the music that they play. The many years that I have played the violin, along with my nine years of private teaching, has given me knowledge of effective techniques to incorporate in my teaching. I hope to be a positive and encouraging role model while engaging my students to their fullest potential as musicians!

I earned a Bachelor of Music degree from Oberlin Conservatory and a Master of Music degree from the University of Maryland. I have been teaching in the DMV area since 2016 and have worked with children and adult students on both violin and viola. I teach 30, 45, or 60-minute lessons. In my teaching, I use a variety of method books and also create exercises to help the student's technique and musicianship. I began playing viola in a public after-school program around age 10, and later began private lessons at 14. Feel free to contact me for more information!

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.
