About

I provide the very best music and guitar instruction in the Washington, DC, area. You don't have to take my word for it, though. See my reviews here and on my website. I teach all styles of guitar lessons such as rock, jazz, blues, folk, country, and beginning classical. In addition, you have access to guided rehearsals (Jam Class) in order to develop your skills playing in a group. I emphasize creativity and improvisation, so that you can learn to jam on your favorite tunes with others. Unlike many other teachers, I have studied and continued to study with some of the best music educators (W.A. Mathieu, Mick Goodrick, John McNeil, Larry Snitzler) so that I can bring the best from the conservatory to "just plain folks."

AGS (Ashburn Guitar Studio) offers quality instruction in the classical guitar: My students are usually referred by Loudoun County Public Schools' middle and high school guitar teachers and they receive four to five, 30-minute private classical guitar lessons each month for $30 per lesson. The classical technique requires students to play with nails (no plectrum) on a nylon-string guitar. The standard repertoire includes the music of notable composers such as Sor, Aguado, Carulli, Carcassi, Giuliani etc. Quarterly studio recitals are held that feature AGS students and local professionals.

About

Music is the language of different cultures coming together. At this time of cultural diversity around us, we find ourselves to have the fortune of bringing the Western and Indian styles of music together and creating a powerful experience for our younger generations. With personalized and individual to small group instruction, we partner with the child and stretch their creative ability. Our summer camps and after school program with free pick up are great avenues for really getting into music. Our summer program also offers art and dance to the already existing music program. Showing off is big at our studio. We train to perform and conduct annual recitals for everyone to get an opportunity to perform, thus inculcating the confidence in oneself. Our students cross-train and generally become singers along with playing an instrument. Our rock band lessons are great for taking music, fun to the next level and good for building team camaraderie. We believe that our lessons teach music in the most fun and interesting way and also teach the life skills` that are needed for a child to grow into.

Get private guitar instruction from an experienced teacher/performing musician (Brian Gross of BG and The Mojo Hands). * 30+ years of experience, 21 years teaching * Patient teacher * Beginners and experienced players are welcome * I teach most styles, specializing in blues * All ages are welcome. I am great with kids * 45-minute lessons -- $50 * References are available upon request Awards: Inducted into the Bethesda Business Hall of Fame, 2015, for being selected for the Best of Bethesda Guitar Instructor category for 3 consecutive years, 2013-2015 Inducted into the Maryland Blues Hall of Fame in 2013 In recognition of my achievements during the past 20 years as a true bluesman. I believe in encouraging my students through exhibiting patience and an understanding of their individualized needs, and therefore, incorporate a variety of teaching methods to meet diverse learning styles. My instructional method encompasses teaching certain guitar skills that can be applied to most musical styles, and uses a series of songs that act as building blocks in learning these skills. In addition to a pre-selected group of songs, students are encouraged to pick songs to learn that appeal to them, which further involves them in the learning process. Most importantly, I believe that learning how to play guitar should be fun. Whereas many other instruments require a more formalized and structured approach to teaching, including learning to read standard musical notation, the guitar is primarily a chordal instrument and songs selected for teaching use a combination of chord boxes and tablature. This teaching approach allows beginners to start playing songs from the very first lesson.
