Beginners will appreciate Dave's patient nature and laid-back approach while more advanced players will find plenty of eye-opening material to sink their teeth into.

The result is lessons which are tailor-made for you and designed to deliver the maximum bang for the buck. This approach ensures that you will not become overwhelmed with more information than you need. Still, you will have the opportunity to change gears at any point in the process, enabling you to ramp up or ramp down your current level of study. Additionally, Dave offers rhythm section studies where he teaches the subtleties and complexities of performing as part of a band's rhythm section. Dave will play drums while guiding you through various grooves as you play bass.

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.
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 only took one lesson from Stephen, but it gave me a great impression. Stephen plays great jazz guitar solo. Also he is very patient when teaching guitar beginners. Hope to see you again Stephen
