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.

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.

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!

In just two lessons with Kevin I’ve learned more, and had more fun, than during the entire 4 years of guitar lessons I took in my teens. Kevin’s enthusiasm as teacher and a musician is contagious, and I’m really looking forward to learning from him.

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!

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.

I’m an absolute beginner with guitar playing and musical theory. I've been learning guitar playing with Lena for about 2 months and plus now. Lena has been a wonderful instructor for me. Her teaching materials are very organized and systematic, which is essential for a beginner like me. Her patience and very encouraging words along the way helped me become more confident as I practiced from when I couldn’t even play a cord to being able to play 10+ chords smoothly. She also lets me choose a list of songs I’d love to learn to 1) help me learn how to play my favorite songs; 2) practice the chords she teaches me. This makes my practices much more enjoyable as I love the songs I’m practicing. I’m also learning from her a bit about musical theory and song writing in the meantime. In addition to the teaching part itself, she’s also very flexible with scheduling. I was able to reschedule several times because some unexpected events came up. With a very reasonable price, what else could you ask for from a guitar instructor?

My 16 year old son has been taking guitar lessons from Tom for so many years I can't remember exactly how many it's been. Maybe five. Tom was born to teach (oh yes- and also be a musician!) He is kind and patient and really cares about his students as people, not just as musicians. In our heavily scheduled life, Tom never watches the clock. The lesson is over when it is complete, not when the timer beeps that 30 minutes is up. My husband and I would highly recommend Tom to anyone wanting to learn guitar - from beginner to expert, young to old. He's the best.

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.

Dan is a fantastic guitar teacher, talented songwriter and musician, and is also a wonderful person. I’ve known Dan for more than two decades and learned so much from my lessons with him. He is a patient teacher with extensive experience in a range of guitar styles. In addition to Dan’s expert technique, I really appreciate his versatility. He knows how to play everything from classical music to classic rock, folk, etc. Dan will teach you a variety of styles, depending on your interests. He is very open minded and looks to help you learn the type of music that you are passionate about. I even brought in recordings of songs I heard along the way – and no matter what it was, he could listen to song and figure out how to play it very quickly. Then, he would write down the music so I could practice it at home and would work with me to learn the song. A master of finger style guitar, Dan has lots of helpful tips to improve your practice – even how to trim your fingernails to produce the smoothest sound and feel to the strings. He is patient and has a really positive, encouraging attitude that makes the lessons really fun. I also appreciate that Dan is involved in the local music scene and has experience playing solo and with a band. If you are looking for a guitar teacher – whether you’re a beginner or someone who has been playing for years -- I highly recommend taking lessons from Dan.

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!

I've been working with Maurice for just a couple months now. He has taught me more guitar in less than 3 months than I've picked up in over 30 years of trying to pick it up by myself. He is not only a great guitarist, he is also a great teacher.

I took several lessons from Nick this previous summer. My experience was stellar. I came to him with some experience playing the guitar but was not able to play as well as I wanted. Nick was very patient and quickly determined what I didn't understand and filled the gaps in my knowledge. I went from being barely able to keep along when playing with friends to being able to lead in jam sessions. Nick also explained much of the theory behind what I was playing and I feel like my understanding of what I'm playing is light years ahead of what it was before. Nick was quick to answer any question I threw him in a way that was easy for me to understand. I would recommend Nick to beginner and experienced guitarists alike and am positive it would benefit their playing.

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.
