David S. Halethorpe, MD

Subjects Taught

Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Blues Guitar, Classical Guitar, Ear Training, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting

About Me

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Baltimore, MD. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 18 years he has been performing (13 of those professionally) and playing guitar, he has released 4 CDs and written over 200 original songs. He has opened for major national acts like Journey, Maroon 5, Toby Keith, My Chemical Romance, The Used, Thrice, Story of the Year, The Bouncing Souls, Eric Hutchinson, Virginia Coalition and Graham Colton. In the process, he has performed at such notable venues as FedEx Field, Nationals Park, Jiffy Lube Live/Nissan Pavilion, the 9:30 Club, Rams Head Live and the Recher Theatre.

As a teacher, David has taught in numerous locations in the Maryland area for the last 16 years. His students generally range anywhere from 4-70+ years old and come from a wide range of backgrounds and levels of proficiency, from basic beginners to advanced. Some of his students have also gone on to pursue careers in music, others have just learned as a hobby, and some have been somewhere in between the two. All are welcome!

*** Lesson Details ***
As mentioned above, David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in living room with couches, chairs, cables/amps, as well as extra guitars (acoustic and electric) and a bass guitar, if needed.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide amps and stands, etc if needs be. However, if they are already provided for the student's sake/in terms of the student (i.e. I'll bring the equipment needed for myself), this would be ideal.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.Pop, rock, jazz, blues, classical, metal and funk.

Nathan R. Windsor Mill, MD

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba, Upright Bass

About Me

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 instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

Robert D. Annapolis, MD

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Singing, Songwriting, Trumpet

About Me

Hey there! I've been performing music for as long as I remember. (I used to give concerts for all the family gatherings!) I've been formally performing in music for over 30 years. I have formal training and 8 years of teaching experience. I teach with positivity, patience, and perseverance and help you express the music in you!

*** Lesson Details ***
All of my lessons are customized to your needs, preferences and goals. No matter what instrument or skill level, I'll take you through the basics and help you build solid practicing fundamentals. I'll also help you develop your performance and, depending on how serious you'd like to get, I can also teach you to read music and learn music theory as well! I balance learning and technical skill with fun and self-expression.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a dedicated music room, stocked with guitars, basses, and practice amp, keyboard and computers with recording software.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboard, practice amp, and/or instrument cords. I expect the student to provide his/her own instrument, and prefer they have an amplifier for electric instruments.

*** Specialties ***
I teach in all genres, but have experience in rock, alternative, pop, jazz, and even music theater.

Ben S. Owings Mills, MD

Subjects Taught

Arrangement and Composition, Bass Guitar, Guitar, Logic Pro Software, Music Recording, Piano, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

After receiving my Bachelors in music education from Towson university I taught for years for Baltimore County Public Schools. My classes included Guitar 1-4 and two sections of Choir. Aside from my classes, I also directed the spring musicals.

For the past three years, I've been a full time entertainer at a dueling piano bar. That's been the most fun because I get to play all kinds of music and I get to play my favorite instruments; piano, guitar, bass and drums.

I have also performed in a variety of bands over the years, from rock to Doo Wop. When I'm not performing music I'm usually writing or recording it in my studio. I have a variety of professional software and hardware tools that I use for recording.

Aaron S. Westminster, MD

Subjects Taught

Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Ear Training, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory

About Me

I have been playing the guitar for about 12 years now and have been teaching since I was about 16. I started out just teaching in my parents house to a few younger family members, but when I turned 18 I immediately began working at a now expired music store called Jams Music located in Sykesville, MD. I worked there for 2 years and built up my clientele, but unfortunately, around the second year of my residency, the store was taken over by new management which, inevitably, caused the collapse of the store. Before the store had fully fallen, I moved my work, as well as about only half of my original students, all the way up to Westminster, MD to Coffey Music. Although I lost some of my students because of the new location and the financial manipulation that my old managers used on some, I've built up a lot of new clientele while maintaining some of the ones I acquired in my first year of teaching at Jams Music store.
