I am very experienced and can accommodate and customize lessons according to students needs. I fell in love with music at an early age, and was attracted to guitar music at age 15. Since then, I've been collecting guitars, learning all about the different brands. I also began to explore different playing styles. I played electric bass guitar in my first band
I provide individually personalized professional instruction based on the background and goals of each student. My training as a teacher and as a performer is based on classic Western European pedagogical foundations. I was a student of two of the pre-eminent teachers (piano, organ, composition and classical improvisation) of the Washington, D.C. area from 1985 - 2002. My teaching studio is one of the most fully complete in the area, with two Steinway B pianos, a full MIDI recording suite, electronic classical organ and 2 manual harpsichord.

There are not too many composers with the background that I have. I come from a Lebanese family and grew up on the edge of poverty.

Hello everyone! My name is CJ. I have been playing since the age of 13 where my passion for music was exposed and expressed through keys. I play from a place of passion and I help students to find this same passion within themselves. Whether you have never played the piano or consider yourself an intermediate player, I will teach you the skills necessary to play through passion. Because I can teach students to learn from sheet music AND uncovering their "ear" for music, students leave each lesson with a sense of accomplishment and confidence in their potential. ...

I have BM in Music Composition, have played piano for 14 years, and tuba for 8 years, studying both in my degree. I have played both piano and tuba in solo, accompaniment, small ensemble, and large ensemble settings, providing me with a broad range of experience in music. Although I have specific expertise that applies directly in teaching theory and music composition, it also aids in my passion of helping students truly understand what is happening as they learn to play their instrument as well. From my experience, a strong emphasis in theory alongside technic and repertoire aids students in more quickly and fully absorbing the a ... View Profile
