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."

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.

About

Whether you are a total beginner hoping to learn your first chords or an experienced player trying to develop some new guitar skills, my lesson program is both enjoyable and effective. For beginner students, we'll spend the first half of each lesson developing fundamental skills on the guitar, including using a pick, strumming, learning new chords, and playing melodies. For the second half of the lesson, we'll learn a particular song or musical piece that you are interested in, applying the fundamentals we developed in the first half. You will be learning new skills and then immediately applying them to the music you like. It is important to me to keep the environment fun and creative while also maintaining an effective learning experience. For more advanced students, I can teach you the ins and outs of a particular musical idiom of your choosing. We can also work to develop more advanced techniques on the guitar, by exploring scale patterns, chord voicing, alternate tunings, and advanced rhythmic skills.
