I came to Dan for guitar lessons but the breadth of his experience allowed me to get so much more. Dan has helped me develop my ability as a guitar player, vocalist, and public performer. His ability to build Jam Class from the ground up speaks to his abilities both as a one-on-one teacher and as a group leader. He's put together an incredibly welcoming community of musicians of all skill levels who genuinely enjoy each other's company, and that's not easy to find.

I have completed four lessons with Crystal at M Institute for the Arts. I found the online booking system works well, and my lessons begin promptly. The classes are hosted in a nice location in Georgetown, and I have found Crystal to be a very encouraging and patient teacher. Looking forward to continuing!

Diego is a natural teacher with a God-given talent. My daughter has only been taking guitar lessons for 4 1/2 months, but I am amazed by her progress and accomplishments. She learns something new each week and walks out of each lesson with a big smile on her face. He is very kind, encouraging and knowledgeable with a fun and diverse repertoire. I highly recommend Diego.

Brian performed acoustic guitar for our wedding ceremony. He was extremely professional and everyone loved the music. Brian communicated great with us through the crazy wedding planning process and was able to learn new songs we requested. Thank you!

I took bass lessons with Morgan; not only did he teach me bass, but music! Keys, scales, modes, majors & minors... he tailored his teaching to what I could absorb, and opened my eyes to the possibilities...

Met Steve when he was playing a show at a local pub- got to talking and shared with him my 11 year old son's passion for music and learned that Steve gave guitar lessons. Met him on a Thursday. By the following Monday, he was sitting in my home teaching my son to play Everlong- Steve is passionate, enthusiastic, and professional- he's a full time musician- this IS his thing!! Communication with him re: lessons, etc is very easy- and my son thinks he's super-awesome- which bodes well for his own enthusiasm regarding pursing guitar. Highly, highly recommend.

I've been taking beginner acoustic guitar lessons this summer with Gregg. He is patient, upbeat, and great at putting together a flexible program that will meet your particular goals. The studio is conveniently located in DC, and guitars available to use during lessons so you don't need to lug your instrument around town.

I have taken over a years worth of guitar lessons from American Music Studio and will continue taking lessons into the future. Brett in co. cater lessons to your skill level and learning style, encouraging you to push the limits and learn more. The instructors are approachable, motivational, personable and experts in their craft. I cannot express how educational and enlightening my experience with American Music Studio has been.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Toni for several months. I love that Toni comes to my house to teach, so that I can stay home and work on other projects during her lessons. Toni is extremely reliable, prompt, and responsive. She is very kind and patient, my daughter loves having her come and looks forward to her lessons. She always leaves a clear practice plan, so that my daughter can practice on her own and knows exactly what to do. I highly recommend piano lessons with 10 Fingers Music!

As a beginner, I was in search for a patient and dependable guitar instructor. Bernardo went above and beyond to ensure my learning experience was fun and productive. He did not bog me down with technicalities alone but rather instilled a sense of listening needed for aspiring musicians to succeed. Most importantly, he taught me the value of being responsible for my own learning experience, I took his advice seriously and excelled. Thank you Bernardo!

When I started lessons with Larry, I had been taking guitar lessons for three years under a ‘learn by learning songs’ method. I didn’t know exactly what I needed, but I knew that I wanted get deeper into music, both theoretically and in my guitar work. I tend towards a combination approach of intellectual and emotional, and I value doing things well, and seeing its link to the larger picture of music. When I pursued Larry as a teacher, I realized I was taking a ‘next step’. What I found in Larry as a teacher and person is an expert in blues music and in how to teach music, particularly guitar. He has piqued my intellectual interest and challenges me to keep learning both the guitar techniques and theory. I didn’t know exactly what I was looking for, but this was it—a Peabody Institute-quality education mixed with blues experience, theory and then throw in endless stories about music from the sixties onward, because Larry was there. You can read his bio for all of the things he’s done, and they’re numerous, but I keep learning more. Most importantly, though, Larry is a great teacher. I trust Larry, and I know he sees something in me. He is a cheerleader-style coach, but an honest one. I know that when Larry tells me that I have potential or talent in a certain area, that he’s telling the truth. He’ll be just as honest when I’m not doing something well, also. Larry has a system that works, and he knows how to teach it and adapt it to my style of learning. My understanding of music, my ear especially, has grown leaps and bounds since taking lessons from him—I no longer feel frustrated, like I’m missing something. I know that if I continue to practice what he is teaching me, I am going to be an expert at guitar and will perform publicly. Larry is an amazing resource, a wonderful teacher, a composer, and a pretty funny guy. Most importantly he’s serious about, and seriously involved with and expert in music—he’s inspired me and he’ll inspire you.

I've been going to Jason for guitar lessons for a few months now and it has been a great experience. Lessons tailored to what I want, friendly staff and nice venue. I've seen noticable improvement in just a short period of time. I highly recommend this place for lessons.

    I'm a 56 yr old guy who played mostly rhythm guitar by ear since I was twenty. About ten years ago my left hand started going numb while playing and after playing for awhile I really could not feel the strings..I asked my family doctor about it and he said it sound like carpal tunnel syndrome. I really didn't want to go the route of a operation so I thought I'd switch to Bass about two years ago. I found I actually like the Bass better anyway. That worked great and very seldom if ever have problem with left hand. The problem I have is I've been stuck in that place where I can play a little bluegrass, blues etc but I'm stuck where I'm at. I really just want to learn some standard tricks, riffs and walks to dress my playing up. I have tried two teachers over the past two years but they wanted to go to much into music theory or spend a lot of time in a lesson just talking about maybe one lick.
