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.
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.
Brian performed acoustic guitar for our wedding ceremony. He was extremely professional and everyone loved the music. Brian communicated great with us through the crazy wedding planning process and was able to learn new songs we requested. Thank you!
Drum and guitar lessons--prompt, patient, and gave great exercises to use for practice.
I have taken over a years worth of guitar lessons from American Music Studio and will continue taking lessons into the future. Brett in co. cater lessons to your skill level and learning style, encouraging you to push the limits and learn more. The instructors are approachable, motivational, personable and experts in their craft. I cannot express how educational and enlightening my experience with American Music Studio has been.
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 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.
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.
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.
Exceptional teacher. Makes guitar lessons fun. Look forward to my lessons
Dave has been teaching my daughters piano and guitar for three years, and the greatest compliment I can give him is the simple fact that both of our girls still look forward to going to their lessons! He has a wonderful knack for balancing technical training with learning to play songs that they know and enjoy. This keeps them interested and engaged and they dont dread their daily practice time. Dave is friendly, caring and genuinely seems to enjoy working with both kids and adults.
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.
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 took guitar lessons with John for a number of years at the Music and Arts center in Germantown. John was an incredible music mentor to me and challenged me to push myself further with every session. John and I stay in touch, and even though I no longer take lessons with him he continues to provide me with advice and support. Incredible musician, incredible teacher.
I have been taking piano lessons from Mark for the last 6 months and it has been a fantastic experience! He is very friendly and patient and he absolutely knows what he is doing. He has a love and passion for music which he will share with you as you grow as a musician. He is very flexible and accommodating when it comes to scheduling or rescheduling your lessons. I would highly recommend Mark Deffenbaugh for any music lessons you need.
Rico was the music teacher for two of my kids. He taught my son to play the trumpet and the guitar and taught my daughter to play the guitar. Rico is a talented musician, with a kindness and enthusiasm for kids that make him the perfect tutor. He did not just teach my kids, he reinforced that they ARE musicians. I cannot say enough great things about this man!!!
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!
As an older student who had never really picked up the guitar (and is not at all musically inclined), Jason made learning approachable and catered to my specific needs and learning style. He is able to neatly wrap together theory and practical drills in conjunction with songs I want to learn. Jason has a seemingly endless well of ideas in which to tap to help break through ruts or "musicians block". Even when I have to travel for work, Jason creates ways for me to learn even if I don't have easy access to my instrument. I have been a student of Jason;s for years and he is always ready with a quick joke, empathy, and a sense for how to teach to what my needs are at that moment. It is an incredibly rare mix of all the perfect traits someone could want in an instructor. I give Jason the highest of recommendations without a shred of hesitation.
I believe that I am a good patient listener and a great communicator. It's easy to find a guitar teacher who's a great player, but harder to find a guitar player who's a great teacher. Also, I've introduced the GIVE+TAKE: Six for Six program. For every six guitar lessons a student takes with me, I will donate a new guitar to a disadvantaged child so that he or she may take lessons also. Six lessons. Six strings. Six for six. While you're taking lessons, you can feel good that you're also giving lessons. The GIVE+TAKE: Six for Six program is inspired by TOMS Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie and his commitment to finding creative solutions to make a difference.
