The Takoma Sessions

The Takoma Sessions is a three part live in-studio concert series showcasing new and original works by the Nicole Saphos Band. Concerts occurred on Oct 4, Nov 1, & Dec 6 of 2019, and took place at Tonal Park; a recording studio and performance space located in the heart of downtown Takoma. All concerts were professionally filmed and recorded, and choice takes have been selected to appear on the Takoma Sessions live album (coming Spring 2020!)

PRE-ORDER the Takoma Sessions!

The Nicole Saphos Band features vocal harmonies sung by Sara Curtin and Maureen Andary (of the celebrated folk duo ‘The Sweater Set’), John Lee on guitar, Ele Rubenstein on drums, and Saphos on lead vocals, upright and keyboard.

Funding for this project was supported in by a grant from the Montgomery County Arts Council. 

The Practice Room: Winter Session (Jan 06 - Feb 17)

Private music instruction with Nicole Saphos & Ele Rubenstein in Takoma Park. All ages and levels welcome!

What is a 'Practice Room'? A practice room can be any space that cultivates sustained focus, creativity, and growth.

During the course of this 6 week session, you can sign up for between 4 - 6 lessons. Pick one area of study, or mix it up! (ex. Lesson 1: voice, Lesson 2: music theory,  Lesson 3: songwriting, Lesson 4: guitar). Lessons are taught out of our home in Takoma Park MD, where we currently have three dedicated “Practice Room” spaces.

Prefer we come to you? No problem! If you have a practice room already set up in you home, and prefer we have lessons there, we are happy to come to you. (An additional fee will be added if your practice room is more than 10 min away from Takoma Park).
