  • Sote

    "What strikes me about Sote's sound is its rhythm of delight and of soul." (Recent review) Sote, a native of Brazil, blends a personal voice with Joao Gilberto-inspired Brazilian bossa nova, samba, MPB, reggae, African pop, funk, soul, and rock rhythms on his guitar. He has unique interpretations of songs ranging from Antonio Carlos Jobim (Tom Jobim) to standard jazz, from Bob Marley to The Beatles, from Joni Mitchell to Tom Waits, and even a handful of classical pieces. Sote has plenty of experience both as a live performer and in the studio. Please consider hiring Sote for your event, restaurant, bar, lounge, or recording project. Please include the date and type of event for which you seek live music. Rates vary depending on the gig. A small party involving little travel would typically be $250 for two 45-minute sets as a solo act. Weddings are usually $500 for two 45-minute sets, plus travel costs as a solo act. Sote can also assemble a band for your event, and prices are usually $125 per musician, per hour. He frequently performs as a duo (Sote + trumpet), trio (Sote + trumpet + drum kit), and quartet (Sote + trumpet + drum kit + bass). If you can offer a regular gig, rates are negotiable. Studio rates vary based on the complexity and logistics of the project. Prices may vary by location and logistics required (like sound equipment set up). Prices are negotiable for non-profit fundraisers and events. Thank you!

About Us: Winship is a full-time music maker, original artist, and cover band from the Mid-Atlantic. By the way, that's also his real name. He travels both nationally and internationally to perform live music, collaborates on a variety of music projects including apps and films, and is constantly writing original music. His work is rooted with a deep knowledge of guitar, piano, vocals, and drums, resulting in sounds that span from singer-songwriter to electronic dance music (EDM). With his experience and recognition, Severn Sound Studio, a premier recording studio in Annapolis, MD, has partnered with Winship to create his music and also give him the opportunity to produce other artists. Without a doubt his favorite place is on the stage performing live music, connecting with his audience, and giving a performance that is all at once vibrantly energetic, easy-going, and authentic. His original music performance as a solo singing guitarist, duo, and trio band send him regularly to festivals, artist showcases, and music venues throughout the region. Winship approaches his cover music performance from the same foundation. As an artist, he's able to make each cover song truly his own, enhancing the selection of music to feel cohesive and fresh while staying true to the song's groundwork. He offers something that not every performer can, which explains why his cover band performance has exploded in popularity over the past year, sending him from coast to coast to play at weddings, corporate events, and private parties of all kinds. The cover band, whether it's as a solo singing guitarist, pianist, duo or trio, tastefully blends top 40 covers from the sixties through current hits and can tailor the performance to be the main focal point or as background as needed at an event. Because of his EDM writing experience in the studio, last year he took the next logical step to DJ, allowing him to perform entire weddings from start to finish ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, not to mention, throw a fun party of any kind. Winship is currently writing and recording a new album of original music that he'll take on tour in 2016. Behind the scenes his manager and wife, Lacey, connects all the dots and keeps everything running smoothly. She spent the last decade managing her own clothing line Kalivoda--voted "Best of Baltimore" in 2010 and featured on Refinery 29--as well as working on music videos, photoshoots, and alongside other artists during her residency at SOTA. She's no stranger to understanding what it takes to dwell in a creative field and loves working together full-time with her husband to pursue a career that helps people celebrate, get inspired, and connect through music. Lacey works on everything from booking inquiries to website design, and. sometimes just for fun, a background harmony in the recording studio.

  • Love's Music Lessons, LLC

    I am the premier provider of traveling piano lessons in Ashburn, including private piano lessons, children's piano lessons, music instruction and music lessons. I am one of the few highly qualified, expert and professional Ashburn piano teachers. I am also the first traveling piano Ashburn teacher to form her own independent traveling music company. I am also an expert flute teacher in Ashburn, VA, and have flute students who participate in Fairfax County District Band, Loudoun Solo and Ensemble Festival, Fairfax Solo and Ensemble Festival and Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM). I am a classically trained musician with two music degrees from accredited universities in the United States. I have a BA in flute performance from UCLA and an MM in piano pedagogy and performance from George Mason University. Aside from my extensive educational background, I have attended numerous piano festivals where I received partial and full tuition scholarships, including Brevard Music Center and Las Vegas Music Festival. I have participated in master classes with James Giles, Mykola Suk and Vladimir Feltsman. I have attended numerous piano and flute workshops to enhance my teaching skills and received a $900 teacher enrichment grant from the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) in 2004. I attended the prestigious SUNY (State University of New York)-New Paltz Piano Festival in 2009, where I received private piano lessons from Vladimir Feltsman, Susan Starr and Robert Roux. Most recently, I attended the 2013 Washington International Piano Festival held at Catholic University in DC. I received private piano lessons from Dr. Ivo Kaltchev (Catholic University of America (CUA)), Nikita Fitenko (CUA), Li-Ly Cheng (MD), Yuri Didenko (Moscow Conservatory), and Hae-Young Kim (South Korea). Additionally, I was selected to perform in a master class with Brian Ganz and selected by audition to perform at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage on August 2, 2013. You can view my performance at the Kennedy Center on my website. I provide piano lessons for the younger beginner, classical piano lessons, kids piano lessons, children's piano lessons, keyboard classes, music lessons for kids, intermediate piano lessons, advanced piano lessons and private piano lessons in your home in all areas of Ashburn (20147, 20148) Ashburn Farm, Ashburn Village, Broadlands, Belmont Country Club, Belmont Ridge, Belmont Hunt, Belmont Chase, Belmont Greene, Belmont Meadows, Loudoun Valley, Loudoun Valley Estates, Moreland Estates, Moorefield Station, Sterling (20166), Loudoun Valley Overlook (20166), Countryside (20165), Potomac Falls (20165), and Great Falls (22066), VA. Additionally, I provide keyboard classes for kids in Ashburn (20147, 20148), Sterling (20166), Potomac Falls (20165) and Great Falls (22066). Piano students must possess a digital piano with 88 weighted keys and at least two pedals. An acoustic piano is highly recommended for those wishing to participate in festivals and competitions. There needs to be a certain amount of resistance in pushing down piano keys in order to properly train and strengthen the fingers. This process can not be accomplished on a keyboard. Music lessons take place in a stress-free environment -- your home-where your child can relax and focus. View clips of my performances and my student's performances at my website. Students who join Love's Music Lessons will develop proper piano technique. Mrs. Love is a patient, friendly and caring Ashburn piano teacher who specializes in teaching young children and adults. Although I am patient, I am also strict enough to focus on strong basics such as learning to read the notes in treble and bass clef and playing with correct rhythm. I can teach all ages and levels, especially the younger beginner. I can teach students as young as 4 years old provided that the parents are actively involved in the learning process. Parents must be willing to sit with the younger beginner while they practice for the first six months of piano lessons. I also provide piano lessons twice per week for the younger beginner for a period of six months. Lessons twice a week are provided at a reduced rate for parents who are serious about their child's progress. Mrs. Love received piano training from Dr. Ana Balakerskaia, piano faculty at George Mason University and Darya Gabay, both of whom were graduates of the St. Petersburg Conservatory in Russia. Mrs. Love also studied with Julie Hahn, NCTM, who graduated with Masters degrees from the Peabody Conservatory and Catholic University. Mrs. Love focuses on note-reading, sound, technique, rhythm and emphasizes the Russian school of piano playing repertoire and technique materials are drawn from Peskanov and other Russian masters. Emphasis is placed on hand and wrist position, developing firm fingertips, maintaining a relaxed wrist and using the wrists to improve technical facility. Rotation of the wrists is of utmost importance in playing Beethoven, Haydn, and Mozart piano sonatas. Improper piano technique such as flat fingers and hands that are not level with the keys can lead to injuries later in life and slow down a beginner's progress. Scales and technical exercises are assigned on a weekly basis to strengthen the fingers. Etudes by numerous piano masters are assigned for beginners up through advanced level piano students. Piano students may explore a variety of repertoire, but I primarily focus on classical piano repertoire as this develops the skills to play any genre of music beautifully. Piano students are required to learn major and minor scales, the corresponding chord progressions and cadences, which are highlighted in classical, jazz, and popular music. Music theory, ear training, sight-reading, and transposition are provided for beginning to advanced students who take a 45-minute lesson. Flute students will learn how to develop a pure sound using the support of their diaphragm. A comprehensive flute lesson includes tone exercises, vibrato exercises, etudes to develop sight-reading skills, major and minor scales to develop technique, and flute repertoire from the Baroque, classical, and contemporary eras.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Mary Dessein

(3 reviews)

I have wanted to follow my heart, my music, writing, and storytelling, for many years; things lined up like a pinball machine to do it now.

Mary Dessein is an animated storyteller and musician, who captivates audiences. She creates programs tailored to specific needs, often including her harp and psaltery.

With the kind of entertainment she offers, Mary's client list is quite diverse. The most common are couples needing experienced emcees for weddings or events requiring unique, lovely background music like receptions. Mary has even been hired by those wanting storytellers to engage and entertain their group.

My most favorite and most successful project is when I come home with everyone happy and me knowing I have done a good job. A wedding in the Arboretum comes to mind and emceeing for a Women Making Music concert, a radio program during which many phone calls and emails reporting how pleased they were with the stories they heard.

Bring beauty and class to your event. Bring in Mary Dessein.

    Tandy and Jason were nothing short of amazing. I hired them to sing a song to my GF at a dinner date I had planned for her. They went out of their way to help me keep it a secret/surprise and were in constant communication so that it went off without a hitch. My girl was absolutely blown away. Their rendition of "I see fire" by Ed Sheeran was simply beautiful, and they had the whole restaurant floored by the time they were done. I HIGHLY recommend them.
