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 have been taking lessons with Gregg since June and he has been an excellent teacher and advocate for music and the arts through his guitar lesson instructions as well his time with the Guitars Not Guns NGO. I have improved greatly with my guitar skills to the point that the other day I played some songs for my Mom, and she was stunned to know I had musical talent let alone could play the guitar. I highly recommend DC Guitar Lessons if you are looking to start learning or further develop your skill sets. Plus he is a great person to brainstorm with on musical ideas, as well picking out guitar equipment to work with. I just recently purchased a Breedlove Electric/Acoustic Guitar, which he originally recommended and at the time I was not 100% sure, but man the guitar is beautiful and it plays splendidly. It was an excellent recommendation and pick. Nagesh R. Washington, DC

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!

My 7 year daughter has been taking private lessons with Hiroko for 2 years, and my 5 year-old son started last year. They are both making good progress. Hiroko is a very supportive teacher, who encourage my kids to enjoy the music as well as to develop correct technique. My daughter has been playing a wide-range of music at her level and enjoys composing little pieces with the help of Hiroko.

My two teenage daughters and I trained with David, our instructor, with Falcon Security. It was the best decision we have ever made! Not only did we learn skills to protect ourselves, but we now feel empowered! I know my daughters will be more careful and ready at a momemt's notice to defend and protect themselves, heaven forbid should they need to! As for myself, I have a true confidence that should I find myself in an unsafe situation, I can handle it without a shadow of a doubt. David was spot on with his lessons. He conveyed what can happen to any of us but did so in a professional way. I know he really cared about our well-being and he took our lessons to heart every session. He pointed out scenarios that the girls have never yet contemplated and then gave them the skills to handle what ever can happen. At 17 and 18 it was time for them to learn self defense. David was awesome and I couldn't be happier with the results!

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.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Toni for several months. I love that Toni comes to my house to teach, so that I can stay home and work on other projects during her lessons. Toni is extremely reliable, prompt, and responsive. She is very kind and patient, my daughter loves having her come and looks forward to her lessons. She always leaves a clear practice plan, so that my daughter can practice on her own and knows exactly what to do. I highly recommend piano lessons with 10 Fingers Music!
