  • Ashburn Guitar Studio

    (4 reviews)

    AGS (Ashburn Guitar Studio) offers quality instruction in the classical guitar: My students are usually referred by Loudoun County Public Schools' middle and high school guitar teachers and they receive four to five, 30-minute private classical guitar lessons each month for $30 per lesson. The classical technique requires students to play with nails (no plectrum) on a nylon-string guitar. The standard repertoire includes the music of notable composers such as Sor, Aguado, Carulli, Carcassi, Giuliani etc. Quarterly studio recitals are held that feature AGS students and local professionals.

Years of study on his own and with some of the country's most talented and skilled players/educators (Berklee College of Music, California State University Los Angeles and Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University) have given him a clear sense of what works and what doesn't.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Chris Conly Guitar Studio

(5 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love meeting and working with new people, new ideas, different tastes and learning styles. New students always bring fresh perspectives. New songs and styles always bring new challenges.

I love putting my ideas out into the world and seeing the difference they make when they mean something to a new student. Creating is one thing, and teaching is quite different. I love bridging the gap between them.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

As a creative musician, I've always been forced to improvise within the circumstances I'm presented with, both in terms of music and business. I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit ever since the first dollar I made busking on the street or playing a fancy wedding in high school. Since then, I've never felt the need to work for someone else because I'm confident that I can figure out how to make it happen for myself.
