  • Piano & Violin Lessons Services

    (16 reviews)

    Maestro Michael Wheatley teaches private lessons on piano, violin and orchestral conducting. Michael teaches from two professional studios, offers classes dedicated to understanding the competition and audition process, and is developing a youth orchestra for the DC area. He specializes in working with young adults and accepts students ages 8 and up. Michael brings humor and great professionalism to his students; lessons follow a lively "work hard, play hard" ethic. While his focus is on teaching piano and violin lessons specifically, he takes a more holistic approach to music than is commonly found in many studios. Of course, all study begins with an emphasis on healthy posture and physical technique, allowing for the possibility of a lifetime of enjoyment in the performance of music of all styles. However, you will find that he is also very focused on music as a communicative art. Music is meant to express and evoke emotions in both the performer and the listener. Thus, his students are taught by musicians who are not only skilled teachers, but also very active and experienced concert performers.

  • Piano Lessons

    (4 reviews)

    I'm a piano instructor specializing in children. I provide classical, theory, improvising, and concert training. My methods also teach a student to memorize as they learn the pieces. Every student has different books, as each student is different and has unique needs. A student needs a piano, or keyboard. A piano is best as it reacts differently. A notebook is needed as the lesson will be written in each week. I use college level theory for all students, as they need to use the whole keyboard and not play just in the middle of the piano. I have taught a blind and deaf child with cochlear implants, which was a successful experience. I have dedicated my life to teaching piano. I will use any method of piano to teach the student to LOVE music!

  • Piano Studio Heather O'Donnell

    (6 reviews)

    I've been playing the piano for over 35 years, teaching it for over 20 years, and working with rehabilitation for the past 6 years. I approach each teaching situation with a strong commitment, high professionalism, and deep care for each student. I also understand that any given teaching situation is not a one-way street. I expect students to bring their commitment to learning, dedication to the music, intelligence, emotional depth, and humor to lessons as well.

  • Piano Instructor

    Learn to play piano with games and other fun activities. I teach piano with the Robert Pace method which teaches beginners to easily play the piano in all keys. Most other methods teach everything in the key of C. I also use games and activities to help enforce the concepts that we cover weekly in the books. The children end up learning piano in a fun way, rather than sitting on the bench for the entire lesson.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Fischer Piano Instruction

(4 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love watching the faces of my students when they finish a piece of music. It is fabulous. I love seeing progress week to week, and right before my eyes, I realize I am giving the gift of music. I teach because it's like the air I breathe. I cannot live without it, and I want to spread the knowledge that I have learned with others. I love the piano, and I enjoy watching people play it.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I was inspired by myself because I was getting so many piano students. Bad habits are not formed when they come to me from the beginning. I have studied from a famous school like Eastman School of Music, and all my methods are from them.

Describe your most memorable project.

My most memorable moment was winning the New York Piano Competition with 200 of the best pianists. It was hard work, but it paid off in the end.
