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.
I've been taking beginner acoustic guitar lessons this summer with Gregg. He is patient, upbeat, and great at putting together a flexible program that will meet your particular goals. The studio is conveniently located in DC, and guitars available to use during lessons so you don't need to lug your instrument around town.
I've been taking guitar lessons with Tim for the better part of the year and I couldn't be happier with my experience. He's talented, patient, and super accommodating to my whacky schedule. We've worked on various styles such as Jazz, Folk, and Blues and thanks to Tim I've made significant progress in my guitar playing! I highly recommend Tim as a teacher.
Don is very professional yet friendly. My daughter is currently taking piano lessons from him. Very happy with his lessons.
Dan's a fantastic teacher because he makes you want to be a better musician. He uses different ways of instructing that specifically cater to your tastes and interests. He's familiar with a wide range of music, genres, and instruments. I came to Dan for beginner guitar lessons, but ended up gaining much more musical knowledge than I could have ever imagined. Dan helped me with the technicalities of the guitar, and helped me refine and add to my skill as a drummer of 11 years. In Jam Class, we played everything from James Brown to Nirvana. Dan is able to foster a great community of musicians within Jam Class, and will not only teach you to play, but to perform and work with other musicians.
Our boys are really enjoying their guitar and drum lessons so far, and are excited about practicing and playing their new instruments.
When I started lessons with Larry, I had been taking guitar lessons for three years under a learn by learning songs method. I didnt know exactly what I needed, but I knew that I wanted get deeper into music, both theoretically and in my guitar work. I tend towards a combination approach of intellectual and emotional, and I value doing things well, and seeing its link to the larger picture of music. When I pursued Larry as a teacher, I realized I was taking a next step. What I found in Larry as a teacher and person is an expert in blues music and in how to teach music, particularly guitar. He has piqued my intellectual interest and challenges me to keep learning both the guitar techniques and theory. I didnt know exactly what I was looking for, but this was ita Peabody Institute-quality education mixed with blues experience, theory and then throw in endless stories about music from the sixties onward, because Larry was there. You can read his bio for all of the things hes done, and theyre numerous, but I keep learning more. Most importantly, though, Larry is a great teacher. I trust Larry, and I know he sees something in me. He is a cheerleader-style coach, but an honest one. I know that when Larry tells me that I have potential or talent in a certain area, that hes telling the truth. Hell be just as honest when Im not doing something well, also. Larry has a system that works, and he knows how to teach it and adapt it to my style of learning. My understanding of music, my ear especially, has grown leaps and bounds since taking lessons from himI no longer feel frustrated, like Im missing something. I know that if I continue to practice what he is teaching me, I am going to be an expert at guitar and will perform publicly. Larry is an amazing resource, a wonderful teacher, a composer, and a pretty funny guy. Most importantly hes serious about, and seriously involved with and expert in musiches inspired me and hell inspire you.
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!
Jason taught my 11-year-old beginning and intermediate guitar. She really enjoyed the lessons and learned quickly. Jason is a fun and dedicated instructor and we plan to sign up again for lessons soon.
Carey is a master guitar player with decades of experience training, performing and teaching but that shouldn’t scare away beginners! Carey’s enthusiasm for the guitar is contagious, but more importantly, he has a patient and direct manner of communication that cuts straight to the essentials. He’s got a tremendous sense of humor, too. I can’t imagine a more perfect combination in a teacher!
I took beginner guitar lessons from Damon under auspices of Howard County Rec. & Parks; he is very straightforward and patient, while exhibiting fantastic skills. I have enjoyed his performances, whether at Pubs or outdoors @ Centennial Park pavilion.
I started taking guitar lessons with Paul after having stopped instruction 5 years before. I found the lessons engaging and relevant as he invites you to explore your areas of interest while instilling the fundamental tools necessary for any musician. These included progressions that allow the greenest to pick up and play along with friends, and the development of essential play by ear skills. Paul was also extremely flexible with scheduling, in addition to coming to my residence. He also charged very reasonably for each lesson.
Cameron provided private guitar instruction to my son and daughter in our home. The affordable lessons combined not only technique in acoustic and electric guitar, but also music theory so that a firm foundation was provided to develop well rounded musicians. The result has been that they are now strong performers, accomplished leaders, and creative composers. I highly recommend Guitar Lessons with Cameron.
As a beginner, I was in search for a patient and dependable guitar instructor. Bernardo went above and beyond to ensure my learning experience was fun and productive. He did not bog me down with technicalities alone but rather instilled a sense of listening needed for aspiring musicians to succeed. Most importantly, he taught me the value of being responsible for my own learning experience, I took his advice seriously and excelled. Thank you Bernardo!
It's not easy to find the right piano teacher. Some pianists with too much skill don't teach beginners; some that teach beginners don't have enough skill. Some piano teachers are too over-bearing and some are too lax. Amor manages to put it all together in the right combination. He is obvioulsy extremely qualified and talented, but also knows how to teach, and teach effectively. I plan to continue my daughter's lesson as long as I can.
guitar lessons with Alex for more than year and a half (stopped due to relocation.) He is a very talented guitarist with a great personality and experiences to teach adults (like me) and children. Alex is capable to focus on tailoring his teaching materials to target his students guitar's level from as basic as a beginner like me to a more advanced individual; as well as to target different age groups. After several lessons, he's motivated me and asked of my interest by introducing the knowledge of guitar styles, such as chords, finger styles and many more, from that on, he's organized a series of songs and evaluated the songs/styles that would be more effectively on me based on my guitar style. His incredibly patience and mellow personalities make his students feel comfortable and very flexible on scheduling. Alex's charisma, skillful guitar techniques and personality provide him with a great overall presentation as a guitar teacher, and not only with rich teaching experience but his qualification, knowledge and music degree to back him up. I strongly recommend him. Alex (student)
Anthony has been providing beginner lessons for my daughter and me for almost a year now. He has an extensive knowledge of music and has used that to tailor individual lesson plans for each of us, allowing us to learn via music we're comfortable with. This keeps us motivated and focused on picking up the chords that our favorite artists use. He's also very patient about the limited amount of time that I can devote to practice, while still coaching me into showing marked improvement- no small feat. Great instructor and I recommend him highly.
Victor has been my guitar teacher for 2 years. He is not only a phenomenal musician versed in several styles, he is an excellent teacher. He is patient and makes learning the guitar fun. He teaches basics of technique and theory but also really listens to where I want to go with my guitar-playing. He has helped me find my own style and has also helped me become more confident in my abilities as a guitar player. I highly recommend his services.
I started with Alex and had some knowledge about the guitar already but it wasn't very smooth. He helped me really dial in some easy to fix details and then give me some great advanced tips to help make the me sound so much better. Alex knows how to play as well as how to teach. He is very good if you are a beginner, but if you are an intermediate or advanced player, I would suggest getting lessons as well. You can transform your playing to another level.
