Don knows his stuff, he's easy to get along with and overall a really nice guy. He has an impressive repertoire of musical skills and a lifetime of experience in music to draw from. As far as instruments he can play a little bit of everything, he can basically teach you any instrument you'd find in a regular rock band, folk, country, pop, blues etc. He's probably most proficient on the guitar and piano but he also knows quite a lot about vocals. If you struggle with theory he does a great job demystifying some of the fundamentals of music theory that are useful to beginners. Whether you're an absolute beginner or long time musician Don will be able to help you out. Highly recommend.

I hired Bill for electric guitar lessons. I actually shopped for an instructor who would fit my learning style best. I learn by doing things hands-on, not so much auditory learning. After trying 4 different instructors, I decided Bill was the best fit for me. Other instructors were good but did not have what I was looking for such as: not teaching according to my learning style, not understanding my goals, or making me feel like I learned nothing after the first lesson. I felt none of these will Bill. After my first lesson with him, I knew he would be a great fit for me. You can just tell he has experience by interacting with him. I left the lesson feeling satisfied with the information I learned and that I am capable of reaching my goals. He takes his time with each lesson, does not rush, and welcomes all questions. He is patient with newbies like me and adept at explaining things in a manner that I will understand. I never feel overwhelmed with the information he gives. I like that he gives positive encouragement when you do something correctly. He will also help you correct you if you have bad form/technique. Bill is very professional, he responds to inquiries quickly. He has the knowledge, experience, and background to help you reach your goals. He has a great personality and is willing to work with your schedule. I highly recommend Bill as an instructor!

I have been playing guitar for my own enjoyment for 40 years. As a boy I briefly had casual lessons in strumming along to popular music. The lessons weren't very serious or effective, and so I'm pretty much self taught. Over the years I've become an accomplished dilettante able to impress the nonmusicians, but always aware that I didn't really play very well. In all that time I've often wondered how the really talented musicians learned their craft, never more so than while watching my son's slow progress with the laughably unchallenging lessons at Bach to Rock. This Christmas I told my wife I would really enjoy having some serious instruction, and she went hunting for the best the region had to offer. She found Alexander Rani at NOVA. I progressed more in my first 4 lessons with Alexander than I have in the last decade. I see now how accomplished musicianship is not some unattainable feat of the few truly blessed. Proper technique and a little diligence can see even an old duffer like me making beautiful music. My wife, who thought I was ridiculous for wanting to take lessons when I already knew how to play, keeps telling me how shocked she is at the difference. I feel like an idiot for thinking it was beyond me and not seeking out a real teacher before. And that has been the difference: a real teacher. Alex is fabulous. I have to say I find it intimidating to be sitting down with such a tremendously accomplished musician. He is so at ease doing things I know are extremely difficult and he can throw in endless variations of his own creation seemingly without having to think at all. He is a concert quality guitarist of the very first order. However he is wonderful at making you feel at ease. He is kind and patient and never condescending or harsh. (And I promise, my playing should try his patience if anyone's will!). I won't say he makes it easy. Quite the opposite. Alex will challenge you at your level of ability. He will take you out of your comfort zone and on to the next skill or technique and tell you you are ready to do more. For me the first run through anything new seems completely alien, and many of these things I wouldn't have given more than a first try. But Alex patiently takes you through one little bite at a time and quickly it becomes more natural. In a short time you are doing things that you didn't think you had in you. And that has been the biggest surprise. I haven't gotten very far yet, but now I understand how it is done, how accomplished musicianship is attainable one skill at a time. Thanks, Alex.

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.

Morgan is a great guitar teacher. I have taken lessons off and on since 1972. That's a long time. Each time the teacher would show me some dreaded "music theory". I always resisted and just went to "show me the chords...show me the licks." Guess what? Morgan got through to my hard head after all these years. His method of showing theory is reasonable and logical and I FINALLY got it!! Hooray! The benefits of understanding the WHY behind the guitar and not just the HOW are ENORMUS. I Highly recommend Morgan.

Jack Philipoom came to my attention at my nieces wedding reception in Williamsburg , Virginia where he was performing jazz guitar with an ensemble. It was there that I booked him for a garden party at my McLean , Virginia home. The flow and style of this extremely talented musician added an elegant ambiance to our evening. His personality is delightful, and our guests found him to be simply charming. I will definitely rehire him, and have highly recommended him to our friends.

My daughter recently started guitar lessons with Kevin. At first she was a bit reserved when it came to lessons but Kevin provides age-appropriate instruction without the pressure for a young child. She really enjoys her lessons and picking up her guitar at home. We are both looking forward to more lessons with Kevin! I will also add that Kevin and Foxes Music (where the lessons are held for her) were very accommodating with our work/school schedule and worked with us until we found the perfect day/time slot!

I have known Joanna for over 30 years now, and know that even back then she had a sheer musicality both at guitar and keyboards. Her handling of elementary school students of any grade when teaching, then middle school and older, was always carefully measured, often catering to individual needs in order to bring out or focus musical gifts, or simply to raise the level of a student's appreciation for art. She has kept that measure of regard for students of all ages since she went into non-school teaching. I also would assure anybody who wants to send a younger student to her that if after an appropriate period of time she felt they were not progressing or that music was perhaps not a good fit for them that she would be honest about that to the parents rather than have anybody waste time and resources trying to engage a child with other interests. But her goal has always been, as I have observed, to find a way to engage them in the first place. Results and honesty, as well as musical passion. What more need be said. (Please know that as a professional musician myself that this is as unbiased an opinion as I can possibly render.)

My daughter and I met Diego about 2 years ago. Both she and I wanted to learn how to play the guitar. Diego was always patient, kind, and found the best learning methods for the both of us. As time went on, I decided to stop taking lessons, do to time constraints, but my daughter continued to play until Diego changed locations. Diego was always the most polite and presentable staff member at the company. He was so great, that I asked him to play at my wedding! I highly recommended Diego Ratana to anyone looking for quality and integrity in the music industry.

I have been a student of Dirk’s since October 2014. I am a 50+ year old man with no prior experience playing guitar prior to taking lessons with Dirk. I explained to Dirk that I work at a CPA firm and I would not be able to take lessons during tax season. I also explained that it would be to my benefit if we could schedule lessons every other week. He was ok with that. Dirk is a patient instructor. He realizes that we all have busy lives and may not have a chance to practice as much as we like. Lessons last an hour or more. You play a little, he makes recommendations, practice the new techniques and hopefully increase your skill set. Dirk provides books and sheets of music that increase in complexity as you master techniques. You can also bring your own material. The most important thing that I have learned from Dirk is to enjoy playing guitar. You are not graded, you are not compared to other students, he does not give any negative criticism. Hopefully, you will want to practice, improve your technique, and enjoy playing your guitar.

Theresa Bliss was a very unique music teacher for all three of our children. I use the word "unique" because she was always so patient and attentive to every detail of teaching our children piano. She always displayed exceptional qualities as an instructor and friend. I know it was not always fun to teach our boys but she always gave 125%. We had had several teachers prior to meeting Theresa Bliss and she was by far the most professional and outstanding. Thank you.

I have been taking lessons with Gregg since June and he has been an excellent teacher and advocate for music and the arts through his guitar lesson instructions as well his time with the Guitars Not Guns NGO. I have improved greatly with my guitar skills to the point that the other day I played some songs for my Mom, and she was stunned to know I had musical talent let alone could play the guitar. I highly recommend DC Guitar Lessons if you are looking to start learning or further develop your skill sets. Plus he is a great person to brainstorm with on musical ideas, as well picking out guitar equipment to work with. I just recently purchased a Breedlove Electric/Acoustic Guitar, which he originally recommended and at the time I was not 100% sure, but man the guitar is beautiful and it plays splendidly. It was an excellent recommendation and pick. Nagesh R. Washington, DC

“It has been a great learning experience for my two daughters. I don’t think I could ever find a better piano teacher. Not only does Ms. Heather share her great talent with my kids, she is also very friendly and always cheerful and looking forward to teaching them. My daughters have improved dramatically since we started with her a few years ago. We also really enjoy the convenience of in home lessons! I highly recommend Lessons In Your Home for music lessons. My daughters now look forward to their piano practice daily”. Great Falls, VA Resident

I interviewed pretty much every music teacher in Alexandria before deciding to go with Mark. There are two types of music teachers I've found - amateur musicians who play guitar in their own band and think they can teach any musical instrument, and professional music teachers who don't have a lot of musical authority. Mark is a musical authority - a professional musician, with solid credentials, and he's an excellent teacher. I really feel like I'm training from a master and not just from an old-fashioned teacher who's stepping me through an instruction routine. He's been able to bring me up to speed on piano very quickly with no pressure. He explains musical techniques and concepts so that they're clearly understood and easy to learn.

I believe that those who can't do teach but when those who CAN do take up teaching, it's so much more valuable for the student. I'm a professional performer first and foremost and I'm giving students practical know-how from my own experiences rather than just copying methodology from an instructional book. You must be around a professional to SOUND like a professional.

Whatever your musical goal may be, I have the educational background and teaching experience to take you there. I have years of flamenco, classical and jazz studies at the university level and with some of the areas' most-renowned instructors who have left me uniquely qualified as a guitarist. Over a decade of imparting knowledge in a fun and relaxing way has given me the experience to become a patient teacher who gets great results. Several of my students have gone on to prestigious conservatories, started successful bands and have students of their own. Group beginner lessons in the Silver Spring area are forming now, and I'm also taking private students, your place or mine or via Skype.
