Arthur W. Abingdon, MD

About Arthur

I began playing electric bass in 1984 performing in rock bands in the late 1980's to the present. When I began my formal education in 2006 I realized the importance of understanding chord structure/theory and began a love of studying guitar. Studying music theory and music composition/arranging completed my understanding musical concepts and how they apply directly to the instrument.

*** Lesson Details ***
Beginner students will learn the basics: learning proper left-hand/finger placement, learning the notes on the neck of the guitar, basic scales and chords, proper right-hand picking and/or finger-style (proper technique will pay off in the long run, improper technique/ bad habits take longer to break). Learning can be boring if you're limited to just exercises; adding a few ...

Nathan R. Windsor Mill, MD

I can teach all genres as well as all the different techniques, such as slap and pop, two handed tapping, etc.

About Nathan

I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your ...

Shannon F. Gambrills, MD

I have been a professional bassist for my entire adult life (and some of my childhood, too!) and I know what it takes to be successful. I like to understand my student's goals and their musical preferences so they get a lesson experience that is tailored to their specific needs and wants. We discuss technique, scales, song form, chord progressions, famous bassists, and more!

About Shannon

Hello! I'm Shannon, and I would love to teach you about music! I have an extensive musical background in both performance and education. I attended George Mason University and the world renowned College of Music at the University of North Texas. I am also an award winning bassist and singer, having performed at such venues as the Kennedy Center, Blues Alley, Rams Head Tavern, and more. I specialize in teaching contemporary styles (pop, rock, jazz, musical theater, etc.). I have taught many successful young vocalists and instrumentalists and believe in a positive, fun, confidence building approach. My students learn music theory, warm ups, and technique in conjunction with songs so they can apply musical concepts in a practical way.

In middle and high school, he continued to participate in choral singing and played saxophone in the school jazz ensembles. Jan continued to study music theory at the collegiate level, was in three choral ensembles, and took formal vocal training. He began to learn the guitar during this time as well, and shortly after graduating in 2005, started guitar instruction. Since then, he has participated professionally in many local ensembles ranging in styles from modern rock to jazz and blues. He recently finished up an original music project, The Booby Traps, which performed locally and ...
