Antony has a lot of experience as a performer and teacher. He has sung with Washington National Opera, Washington Bach Consort, and Handel and Haydn Society and performed over 30 roles in opera/musical theater. He is also a singer/songwriter. Antony has taught at Shenandoah Conservatory, College of Southern Maryland, and the Levine School of Music. He has also maintained a private studio in voice, guitar, and piano since moving to Northern Virginia in 2004.
I have been teaching private and group lessons for the past 14 years. I really enjoy seeing my students grow into the musicians they desire to be and love being an encouraging teacher for them.
For beginning piano students I recommend Alfred, John Thompson, or Piano Adventures books. (If you already have books that you have used on your own r with aother teacher, I am happy to use those as well!) Additionally, I will choose a recital piece applicable to their level that the student will work on for a few weeks/ months at a time to be performed at their first recital performance. For beginning voice students, we will work with a few pieces throughout the semester, in addition to sight-reading and theory exercises. From these we will pick a piece to be memorized and performed at the student's first recital. Adult piano and voice students: I work with you to figure out your goal and what you are interested in and will guide and tailor my instruction accordingly.
I attained my M. Ed. in leadership and supervision at Antioch University. There I learned how better apply my teaching methods for more beneficial outcomes. My most recent employment, with Nashville Public Schools (Music City!!!), afforded me the opportunity to teach modern band. Modern band philosophy combines instruments from various ensembles and allows the students the opportunity to explore and integrate the instrument of their interest into that band. Modern Band is basically a rock band that is opened to other instruments and ideas that are most times contradictory to a typical rock band. I am an effective music instructor and each student will gain confidence and insight from my guidance.
I have been teaching piano and voice lessons for a short period of time (since September 2014). I began teaching both piano and voice at the George Street Music School in York, PA to beginning and intermeditate students. As a music teacher, I make it a goal to promote healthy and efficient practice habits. I encourage my students to challenge themselves musically and compete in talent showcases and recitals. And lastly, I welcome students to have fun by learning various styles of music to assist them to be well-rounded.

Learning voice as an adult can be a very fun experience. If you have never studied music before, it is never too late to start! Voice lessons will focus on vocal, breathing, performance techniques in order to help you to achieve your own personal musical goals. No matter your reason for studying voice- studying classical music, singing in a community or church chorus, auditioning for musical theatre, or just taking lessons for fun- our teachers are here to help you reach your goals.
Whilst singing is certainly a physical endeavor that requires effort, it should always be performed safely and with comfort. If there is any pain or discomfort when singing, you should stop immediately. If such problems persist after resting the voice for a few days, then singers are advised to visit a doctor as continuous soreness could be a sign of a serious vocal problem such as nodules. The biggest culprit of vocal health problems is singing with bad technique. This can include shouting, straining when singing, or attempting advanced techniques such as distortion without qualified instruction. To help prevent the risk of injury or fatigue, singers should warmup before vocalizing and remain hydrated.
Learning to sing is massively beneficial for students of a young age. Through lessons and practice, students can learn safe vocal techniques, how to look after their voices, develop their ability to hear and recreate pitch, and work on their musical theory. They can also prepare for exams, rehearsals, and competitions. Learning how to sing is also good for their overall development, as they will improve their concentration skills, raise their self-esteem and confidence, and develop a positive, hard-working attitude as well as a habit of self-discipline through regular practice and lessons.
Singing lessons will focus on teaching students how to sing with good vocal technique and how to apply these techniques to the art of singing songs. Students will learn exercises and techniques that enable them to sing with a clear, balanced, well-pitched vocal tone, how to support the voice, and how to increase their vocal range. Students will learn these techniques through vocalizing vowel sounds on different scales that vary in difficulty, learn how to tilt the thyroid cartilage in order to bridge into the head voice for range extension, and how to reduce the use of the extrinsic muscles of the larynx to avoid constriction when ascending in pitch. Students can develop their performance techniques and song interpretation, and learn advanced techniques and exercises such as developing vibrato, rasp/distortion effects, messa di voce, and vocal run and fills. Students can also be prepared for auditions, exams, and gigs.
Voice lessons in your home offer a convenient and practical way to master the art of singing. Voice lessons in your home require a piano or keyboard so that the teacher can use that to conduct your lessons. Whether you want to learn classical voice, jazz, pop, or musical theatre styles, the instructors in our network can provide you instruction on what songs would suit your voice best.

Very knowledgeable on every aspect of music theory. I listen to recording artists playing various classical pieces, Dan's playing is much like a recording artist's playing. Always on time. Winning happy personality, a great role model. Puts me at ease when I am playing. Have two friends who hold music degrees, I count him a third, something special about the minds and personalities of good pianists. Thanks Dan.

Ed is THE best instructor I've ever had and I've had many instructors over the years in various fields of study. Ed met us at a music store to help choose a guitar, this is after he first called and asked all the right questions. He's supplied my daughter with just the right amount of paper work and just the right amount of new techniques. By this I mean to say that Ed connects with the pace my daughter learns at. I highly recommend Ed AND Musika.

Erin has been a wonderful voice/piano teacher for our 7 year old daughter. She is talented, patient, and has a wonderful demeanor. She has been consistent with her teaching in piano and voice. She keeps record of where the students leave off so that they know what to expect the following week. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a skilled piano/voice teacher.
Review by Claudiaaustin
Our kids love Mr. Lynwood. Mr. Lynwood is very patient and skillful teaching our kids both music theory and guitar/piano. He keeps them engaged and motivated during their lessons and we are seeing -or rather hearing- fast improvement in the kids' dexterity playing their respective instruments. We would recommend this good natured instructor to anybody.

"Richard is a very talented and a patient teacher. He teaches my 6 year old daughter in the comfort of our home and he is very regular. He follows a learning book and mixes his lessons to bring difficulty and technicality while keeping it interesting for my daughter. My daughter was difficult to work with at the beginning but he was able motivate her in every possible way. As a parent I make an effort to learn with my daughter so that when my daughter practices I am able to guide and correct her and Richard is very generous to take the time to give provide me concepts. I am extremely happy with Richard and his ability to teach children."

Noel is amazing. She is helping me to work toward my vocal goals for auditions to several musical theaters. She has helped me choose strong audition pieces and is teaching excellent ways to get the sound I need in a safe and healthy way. She works outside our lessons on new warm ups and new music pieces. She is the best.

Danette is a delightful instructor. She always brings a wealth of knowledge, excitement, and enthusiasm to piano lessons with my daughter. She is not only skilled at piano, but she has a wonderful voice quality that she uses to help convey certain techniques and to highlight various points where she intends to draw the students attention.
Review by Kristen Draughn
Mr. Lou M. is a God-send! With the various needs that our organization requires from our education partners in order to provide enrichment services to our students, Mr. Lou M. has always gone above and beyond in meeting all of those needs. Our students are learning, our caregivers are happy and satisfied, and we couldn't be more pleased with his performance.
Review by James F.
After my first piano lesson, Polina is easily the best teacher I could have hoped for. Extremely charismatic and excited to help YOU learn the piano. She puts a lot of effort into evaluation your learning style and will no doubt help you make tremendous strides! I'm stoked to continue taking lessons!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
