I took guitar lessons from Gregg and I was amazed at how quickly I became a much better guitar player following his method. He's a great teacher and activist. Highly recommended!!
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.
Don was fantastic. I'm so excited to continue my violin and piano lessons! I definitely recommend him...he obviously has a lot of knowledge to offer his clients.
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.
Our boys are really enjoying their guitar and drum lessons so far, and are excited about practicing and playing their new instruments.
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!
Thumb tack put me in touch with a great guitar teacher nearby. Been thoroughly enjoying my experience. Jonathan is really excellent.
Diego is a natural teacher with a God-given talent. My daughter has only been taking guitar lessons for 4 1/2 months, but I am amazed by her progress and accomplishments. She learns something new each week and walks out of each lesson with a big smile on her face. He is very kind, encouraging and knowledgeable with a fun and diverse repertoire. I highly recommend Diego.
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 was already an intermediate guitarist when I began lessons with Marcus Truelove. He has a reputation among area guitarists as professional and very knowledgeable. He exceeded my expectations in every way. I was at a learning plateau and quite frankly, all over the place on the fretboard when I began lessons. Over the course of two years, he was able to smooth out my technique and improved my timing immensely. I especially like that he was able to teach to any level of ability and covered a lot of material in every lesson. His level of understanding made playing a lot easier for me and the results were almost immediate. He uses an easy to understand building block approach to teaching. He will give you honest feedback on your progress/ability and set reasonable expectations for your next lesson. His lessons are an excellent value and I reserve for him my highest recommendation.
Jeff was very professional and great instructor to work with. Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for an guitar teacher who is great teaching kids.
Josh is awesome! I learned how to play ode to joy my first lesson with him. He's fun and can teach you awesome penatonic scales. He makes playing guitar worth the calluses.
I am happy to share my guitar knowledge with you. Please keep me in mind. I've toured internationally and have been teaching for over 5 years.
A lifetime of passion and learning experience. I was raised in a musical setting from birth!
Whatever your musical goal may be, I have the educational background and teaching experience to take you there. I have years of flamenco, classical and jazz studies at the university level and with some of the areas' most-renowned instructors who have left me uniquely qualified as a guitarist. Over a decade of imparting knowledge in a fun and relaxing way has given me the experience to become a patient teacher who gets great results. Several of my students have gone on to prestigious conservatories, started successful bands and have students of their own. Group beginner lessons in the Silver Spring area are forming now, and I'm also taking private students, your place or mine or via Skype.
I love teaching music to anybody who really wants too. I teach from beginner to average and advance guitar.
Would you like to improve your Spanish as well as your guitar techniques? This is your chance. We'll do it in a funny and fast way.
Good quality teaching at a much lower price than you'd find elsewhere in the area. I go at your pace and teach you whatever you want to learn while also throwing in technique that will help you play better.
I can teach you to play the guitar. You will be strumming chords in three weeks. I will also teach you how to teach yourself, so that I eliminate myself out of the picture.
We offer individual lessons, from beginners to intermediate. Loaner guitars are available for first-time lessons. We also offer lessons in music theory, reading, improving and ear training.
I am self taught so I'll teach you what you need to progress from chords to arpeggios to modes. Ear training and improv will also be provided.
