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.

Yvonne M

Instruments:

I am a fun-spirited teacher that maintains structure to every lesson and I have a passion for teaching students of all ages how to play the piano. I started playing the piano about 25 years ago and I began teaching about 12 years ago. I performed in many recitals and guild auditions as a student, and in college I began to perform at Open Mics, at weddings and then dinner music at restaurants. I was a National Guild of Piano Teachers Member from 2006 to 2008 and prepared several students to perform in guild auditions. I have recorded songs that I have written in different studios and enjoy the performance aspect of learning songs. I encourage students to perform in recitals too if they so desire.

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 beyond.  I have been 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.

Ronald W

Instruments:

I began my formal study of piano at the age of five. I also studied violin, viola and tap dance during my youth.  A very close friend and I founded the Young Senators, a R&B dance band which played throughout the Washington DC Metropolitan are.   The group eventually became the “back up” group for Motown’s Eddie Kendricks, of Temptations fame.  Throughout my career, I’ve performed with some celebrated music and movie stars; Cab Calloway, Esther Rolle, Brock Peters and Cecily Tyson, to name a few. In the late 90s, worked for Jordan Kitts Music, providing (group and private) piano instruction for 3 year olds up to adult seniors.  My lessons were designed to build cumulative sequences of musical experiences that fostered continuous growth in musical understanding, skills, and knowledge with a focus towards contemporary and traditional keyboard harmonies. In 2000, I worked for the Jewish Primary Day School (Grades K – 6), where I introduced the conceptual structure of music, focusing on melody, rhythm, and harmony and their expressive and stylistic organization.  Program objectives included: 1) ability to listen with discrimination, 2) ability to sing on pitch within a limited range, 3) ability to play simple rhythm and melodic instruments, 4) ability to interpret music through body movements, impersonations, and dramatizations, and 5) ability to associate symbols of musical notation with musical concepts. Today, I perform professionally and provide private online and offline piano instruction for children and adults.
