Exceptional teacher. Makes guitar lessons fun. Look forward to my lessons
Thoughtful considerate and at your pace lessons -the instrument, the music, the theory - a full packge and hell just what you need to play what you wnat to play -- Morgan's great. He changed my playing and I should go back for more.
Jamie, my daughter, loves her guitar lessons with Casey. Jamie cannot stop talking about how much she has learned from her lessons. She loves showing off her new guitar skills!
Drum and guitar lessons--prompt, patient, and gave great exercises to use for practice.
Jack did a great job and the kids enjoyed his performance. My daughter now wants to take guitar lessons from him.
I have gotten a series of guitar lessons from Stevie. The progress I've made is amazing. If you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere to ask questions and learn to play guitar, Matthews is your guy. He is passionate about music and your ability to get better. I'm very excited to continue to learn more.
Carey’s talent as a teacher does wonders for bridging the gap between music theory and music performance. I went into lessons with only a very basic knowledge of music theory that I hardly was able to apply to guitar, but his lessons taught me how to play in a way where I can either explore the musical depth of the tune or simply jam, comfortable that what I’m playing will always sound good. It’s broadened my abilities as a musician without taking away the simple fun of playing guitar, something that is invaluable in any teacher.
I was already an intermediate guitarist when I began lessons with Marcus Truelove. He has a reputation among area guitarists as professional and very knowledgeable. He exceeded my expectations in every way. I was at a learning plateau and quite frankly, all over the place on the fretboard when I began lessons. Over the course of two years, he was able to smooth out my technique and improved my timing immensely. I especially like that he was able to teach to any level of ability and covered a lot of material in every lesson. His level of understanding made playing a lot easier for me and the results were almost immediate. He uses an easy to understand building block approach to teaching. He will give you honest feedback on your progress/ability and set reasonable expectations for your next lesson. His lessons are an excellent value and I reserve for him my highest recommendation.
I set-up one appointment w/ Oscar to see if it was possible to learn guitar: I find manipulating my hand and fingers awkward. He promptly assisted me w/ finding a proper sitting position, guitar holding technique and where to place my fingers. His demeanor is that of calm patience. I signed-up for four more lessons!
Playing piano has always been a life-long dream. I started piano lessons late in life and never dreamed of finding an instructor like Chris Rooney. His personality, professionalism and teaching techniques are above reproach! I look forward to every lesson and strive to do my best as my progress is a reflection on the professionalism exhibited by Chris.
Josh is awesome! I learned how to play ode to joy my first lesson with him. He's fun and can teach you awesome penatonic scales. He makes playing guitar worth the calluses.
I am so happy I met Susanna and Jerrod! They're both phenominal teachers. They taught all three of my children to sing and play the piano through private instruction and group classes. They have found the instruction fun yet challenging and have really learned a lot. Thanks so much!
Brendan was very professional, kind and helpful with my daughter's voice lessons.
Max Kuzmyak is a very knowledgeable musician with a large skill set that is useful in the music industry. He can teach trumpet, guitar, voice, and has extensive theory knowledge as well. He is also well versed in recording and audio engineering. Max is very friendly, easy to work with, and professional. I would highly recommend working with him if you are looking for a private teacher, or a recorder.
I was looking for guitar lessons for my son as a Christmas present. I wasn't sure how long the excitement would last. Mike has been fabulous in working with my son and stoking the fire of interest. My son looks forward to his lessons every week and gets real excited about the progress he's made. I can't speak highly enough about how Mike has helped and encouraged my son.
I've been taking lessons here for a year or two I think. They have been great and I plan on continuing to do so. Nothing like learning to play guitar while playing a song you chose.
Strum Start offers beginner to intermediate instruction in acoustic guitar, guitar theory and maintenance.
I can teach you to play the guitar. You will be strumming chords in three weeks. I will also teach you how to teach yourself, so that I eliminate myself out of the picture.
Joel was my guitar teacher for 3+ years while he was a student at Goucher. He has a way of encouraging and making you envision what you are capable of, while also making difficult concepts comprehensible and approachable. I'd recommend him to anyone.
I teach country, Southern rock, scales, chord progression, slide guitar, and blues to any age and any style, from the start until you're better than me.
I took guitar lessons with John for a number of years at the Music and Arts center in Germantown. John was an incredible music mentor to me and challenged me to push myself further with every session. John and I stay in touch, and even though I no longer take lessons with him he continues to provide me with advice and support. Incredible musician, incredible teacher.
