Featured Alexandria Piano Teachers

Stephanie B

Instruments:

I teach voice up to an intermediate level and piano at a beginning level. I have performed several lead roles in operas and been a featured soloist both at the Peabody Conservatory and at regional opera companies around the country. I have sung in numerous choirs in the Baltimore and DC area, including the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Chizuk Amuno Congregation, and the Washington National Cathedral.

Michelle A

Instruments:

Teaches all levels.

Melissa M

Instruments:

Melissa began singing in a church choir at the age of four and has been "hooked" ever since. After years of performing in various choirs and taking lessons herself, she went on to earn her Bachelor's degree in vocal performance at Illinois Wesleyan University and her Master's at Illinois State University. Meanwhile, Melissa was also studying piano from childhood through college. Now in her 21st year of playing, Melissa loves to teach beginner and intermediate pianists in addition to young singers. She is a newcomer to the DC area, and has previously lived, sung, and taught in Illinois, Indiana, and Vienna, Austria. Melissa has performed on both the undergraduate and graduate level (and beyond). Her experience includes operas, operettas, recitals, musicals, and choirs. She has performed in venues ranging from the Indianapolis Opera to the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Over the years she has performed in the United States, Canada, England, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland. She also studied piano for many years, and has experience as an accompanist and vocal coach. Other than her pedagogy training and the typical university diction and literature curriculum, she also took 14 years of French, and lived in a German-speaking country for the better part of a year studying the language. Her knowledge of diction and language issues is extensive. This, combined with her comprehensive training in music theory, history, and repertoire, gives her a vast reserve of knowledge and resources for her teaching.

Isador M

Instruments:

I have extensive experience teaching and performing many genres of music including classical, heavy metal, pop, rock, R&B, and more.  I have considerable composition experience, composing scores for corporate videos and documentaries, and my work has appeared on television and at film festivals across the country.  I also have a significant amount of live experience, playing in numerous bands of many styles.  I enjoy teaching guitar and piano to students with varying interests and goals, regardless of age or musical background.  

Michael K

Instruments:

I have enjoyed working with children and adults for over 18 years because I believe that learning music is an especially powerful and enriching experience like no other. I have played piano, guitar, violin, recorder, bass, voice and African drums. My performance genres stretch from Jazz, to Classical to Reggae to Rock and more.  I was very fortunate to perfrom at Carnegie Hall, The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, and many venues across the country in small combo groups and big bands.  I was honored to be chosen as a second bassist with Jimmy Heath's Graduate Jazz Ensemble when I was a mere unergraduate.  One of the most important lessons music has taught me is that if you dream it you can become it.  I believe that every student can learn to perform music and treasure their experiences for a lifetime.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or an 88-key, weighted hammer action keyboard for their lessons and practice. A real acoustic piano will provide the most satisfying learning experience, however, due to the costs and size of the instrument, a keyboard is often the more convenient option. Weighted keys will respond most like those of an acoustic piano, and keyboards have the added bonus of being portable and compatible with headphones. The most popular brands of keyboard or digital piano are Yamaha, Casio, Korg and Roland.
One-on-one piano lessons straight from the comfort of your own home is a great way to learn to play the piano. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, however, you will need to have a keyboard or piano at your home. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
The content of each lesson is determined by the ability and experience level of each individual student. For students just starting off, the foundations of piano playing will start to be laid. This will include learning to read music and chord charts, learning their way around the piano and learning simple scales and chords. Students can put these new skills to use through simple, entry level compositions. For intermediate pianists, they will develop some of the finer arts to piano playing, such as modulation, developing speed, and combining a wider array of chords, such as augmented and slash chords. They will also get to work on their sight reading and playing more challenging songs. Advanced students may wish to work on their improvisational skills, develop their repertoire or study a specific genre or style of playing, such as Jazz, Baroque, or Blues. Regardless, all students will experience the joys of piano playing.
"We have many adult students taking lessons. Whether you have studied music as a child, or are wanting to learn a new skill, music lessons are a great avenue to go with! Not only do they keep you young and energized, but our teachers are also able to be ""on your level"" and instruct you in a way you can understand."
Piano lessons for children will focus on learning the fundamentals of the technique of the instrument and learning to read music and rhythm. We suggest beginning piano lessons no earlier than age 4, due to the attention span of the child, as well as the strength they have in their hands for playing. Piano Lessons will offer an excellent introduction to learning music for a child. Music theory and musicianship skills will also be taught during the lessons. Piano lessons are a great choice for introducing the art of music to your child!
