Top Rated Private Guitar Instructors Around Ashburn, VA
I’ve been taking guitar lessons with Jim for about 9 years now and vocal lessons with him for 2. Since we’ve first started lessons Jim has always been a true professional: always early or on time, helpful, hard worker, etc. More importantly, however, he genuinely cares about his students far more than any teacher I’ve ever met. Over the years, Jim has not only become a great friend of my family but really a part of our family, and a short review cannot begin to describe how amazing Jim is as a guitar and vocal teacher.
Gosh, you simply can't do better. Where else are you going to find a classically trained bluegrass expert with a Masters degree, giving affordable private lessons? Chris is just amazing.
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.
My son loves his guitar lessons with Evan. He is so sweet with kids, and he is so patient and understanding with my son during the lessons.
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!
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!
Mr. Walls is an enthusiastic and patient teacher. As a choir member at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton for the past fifteen years, I have been able to sing liturgical music, and participate with other choirs in singing more complex pieces of music, such as requiems and compositions for rites of the church and special occasions. Our choir has sung in various languages, and joined other choirs in ecumenical choir fests. Mr. Walls has studied music composition, conducting, and history, and is an accomplished musician on several instruments, including the piano, organ, and guitar. He has several years teaching experience in the U.S. and abroad. I would say Mr. Walls' expertise and talent are second to none.
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.
This is my son's 5th year taking guitar lessons with Mike and he loves it. It is the highlight of his week! Mike is a great teacher with lots of patience. Mike makes learning the guitar fun. We are so thankful we found him.
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.
I found Ms. Kathy in our local newspaper ad. I am so happy that she answered my call. I am taking piano lessons again after many, many years. She's fun and a great teacher. She makes learning enjoyable and not stressful. She gives you a lot of pointers and encouragement. I look forward to practicing my pieces and having my next lesson.
