About Robert

Creativity, skill and love of music are the key elements that I work to encourage in every student. Over the years my teaching has evolved and I find it gratifying to take people far beyond their own expectations while helping them achieve their goals. I believe everyone is musical and just needs the right key to tap into their own creativity.

For beginners it's important to study with an excellent teacher. Setting a solid and creative foundation makes all the difference!
For advanced players studying with a great artist takes you greater artistry.

Weekly private lessons focus on technical skills in either piano, voice (or a combination of both) and a strong musical foundation. Theory and Ear Training are fundamentals that are embedded in this approach to developing a ...

Jason F. Baltimore, MD

About Jason

I have been teaching and performing as a full time career since 1994. Over the years, I have developed an approach to teaching that is customized to the needs and interests of each of my students. I will help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve those goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Musicians think, learn, and create in many different ways. Some are visual learners, preferring to learn by studying diagrams and reading notes. Others learn intuitively, simply by listening, imitating, and then creating. My objective is to find the learning style which works best for each of my students. I can help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve those goals.

Jason is a phenomenal instructor. As an older student who is not musically inclined and is just picking up the instrument seriously for the first time, I was apprehensive about taking lessons. Jason has made the process interesting, fun, and informative.

I have only been taking lessons for a few months and beyond learning songs, Jason has given me instruction on guitar maintenance (beyond the everyday care of the instrument) and music theory. I think his holistic approach to playing the guitar really sets him apart from other instructors. I always come away from each lesson feeling that I learned something new and valuable.

Jason really caters to the individual learning styles of his students. I travel often for work and he has found ways for me to continue to learn, even if I don't have my instrument with me. He is also tremendously knowledgeable and patient. If a certain style of learning doesn't seem to be sticking, he will find new and creative ways to teach until the idea resonates with the student.

I feel very fortunate to have found Jason as an instructor. I unreservedly give him the highest of recommendations.

The location is great (right by my house), his scheduling is flexible, online payment takes no time at all and perhaps best of all Jason is a great guy, very professional yet very personable and down to earth.

There is no doubt that Jason is a phenomenal guitarist. Very inspiring and encouraging. His guitar abilities are one of the best I have seen in person. Lessons are fun, interesting, and helpful. I have only been taking lessons for a little more than a couple months now, but I already see improvement.

It is great to take lessons with somebody who is both patient and encouraging at the same time. He is especially good at recognizing if the pace is getting too fast/slow and adjusting for that. I consider myself fortunate to have found such a good teacher.

Exceptionally Tallented Teacher and Musician

Jason is a gifted player, dynamic teacher, and he motivates me to play better and challenge myself.

I've been puttering around on the guitar since I was in my early 20's. I finally started taking lessons in my early 30's. Instructors I've had in the past were fine, but never challenged me. They were content to teach me to play whatever song I was interested in but never the theory behind it. They never seemed invested in my success. With Jason, it is completely different. He brings in a great mix of playing for fun while helping me play outside my ability and comfort zone.

First, he challenges me to play better. I'm not always happy while we are running chord drills with a stopwatch, but because of it, I am better, faster, and music is a lot more enjoyable to play when you are not thinking about where chords or scales are. He is quick to support what I do correctly, but also doesn't shy away from fixing things I do wrong or bad habits that I have developed. He also mixes in regular work on improvisation skills, reading TAB, and even writing your own music or solo work.

Next, he teaches me to be more accurate. If we are working on a song that is too fast or technical, he’ll slow it down either by using software or recording a quick backing track. Then we both play and focus on accuracy. It’s always a good feeling to play all the way through a song even if it’s at 80% speed.

Finally, Jason is simply a real standup sort of guy. He is punctual, communicates with his students regularly, organizes events where students can play, and takes a real interest in his students.

I wouldn’t hesitate at all to recommend Jason to anyone of any skill or ambition level.

I have only received 3 lessons so far and all have been a wonderful experience. I am not a professional singer nor have I ever had any lessons singing. I simply just want to learn 1 song to sing to my future husband. OJ has made every lesson fun while I am learning and I know in time I will reach my goal.

Fun, Easy to Work with

This teacher has an easy, fun loving spirit. I have learned important tips to improve my singing, such as, to name a few, where to place my tongue, the importance of enunciation, and scaling from high to low notes without breaking. I would recommend him as a teacher.

Great Teacher

Throughout my life, I have been singing in Gospel choirs and for years, I have been an alto. After meeting with OJ, he helped me find my voice. He was able to determine my vocal range and I found out that I was never an alto, but a lyric soprano. I was so shocked, but excited at the same time. I thought that was amazing because he helped me discover my true vocal range. OJ is knowledgeable, patient, and fun to work with.

About Benjamin

I discovered music sifting through my Dad's record collection and soon decided that I wanted to play guitar. As a teenager I began taking lessons and building confidence in my abilities. I played in different types of bands ranging from rock, country, blues, and jazz. After completing College in 2004, I realized music was not just going to be a hobby, but a career. At age 33, I have been teaching and playing guitar professionally for the last nine years. I believe that anybody can learn to play as long as they are patient and understand that anything worthwhile takes time and sustained effort to achieve. You also need a good teacher who understands how to take you where you want to go musically. I have taught hundreds of different students of all ages and abilities. I have ...
