I’ve been taking guitar lessons from Gregg every other week for the last 6 months. The main reason I decided to seek out private guitar lessons from an instructor, was because I couldn’t get into online or DVD guitar lessons which I attempted for several months. Moreover, I’m old school when it comes down to music lessons, due to learning the cello through classroom instructor- based lessons from elementary to High School, along with private lessons thereafter. With that being said I can say I’ve made one of the best decisions towards enhancing my playing on the guitar by taking lessons with Gregg. When I first started taking lessons from Gregg, he provided an individual plan for me to help with learning scales, technique exercises, licks, and improvisation. He showed me how to make my own melodies on the guitar by using scale/chord relations. He provided the theory behind using various chords with scales which I did not gain from DVD or online guitar learning. He also broke down how much time I should spend on practicing the guitar to get where I want to be. He is very encouraging and will provide feedback to you which will enable you to improve in certain areas. I would like to recommend Gregg for beginner to intermediate players, as well as advanced players who are preparing for gigs. In addition, Gregg cannot practice for you, he can only provide lessons. I try to practice from 30 minutes to 2 hours a day depending on my daily schedule. Gregg is a great teacher, I am already playing with others (bassist and drummer) and using the skills he taught me to improvise my playing.

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.

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!

Teresa is a very talented musician and experienced piano/guitar teacher. She is kind and patient with all of her students and with everyone around her. Her lessons are affordable but also high quality—they cover music theory, technique, musicianship, repertoire, and even a bit of music history. I have had the pleasure of observing many of her music lessons and taking piano lessons myself. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn piano or guitar.

My 11 year old son has been taking guitar lessons with Mike of G4 guitar in Frederick since September. Mike is an excellent teacher and guitar player. He has a lot of patience and experience. My son had very little experience playing the guitar, I am amazed by how much better he sounds and how much Mike has taught him. I highly recommend Mike at G4 Guitar!

Our son has attended one violin lesson so far. Joanna determined a problem with his finger positioning on the strings immediately and showed him how to fix it right away. The homework she has given my son has kept his interest. He already seems more motivated. We will see how things go as we proceed, but we are pleased so far.

Verified review

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.

Tom Newman is the consummate musician. As a performer, he is excellent. His presentation and skill is among the best in the world. He is beyond limits in knowledge and execution. As a teacher, he really cares. He gives and gives and gives knowledge, instruction, insight and time toward student development.

About

I am a guitar and bass teacher looking for students close to me. I can teach you to play songs and how to improvise, so that you can jam with a group anytime you want!

About

A lifetime of passion and learning experience. I was raised in a musical setting from birth!

About

My work stands out because of the excellent instruction I received as a music student. I was taught solid fundamentals, music theory and was exposed to a wide range of styles and types of music. I teach this way as well.

About

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.
