Raycurt has developed and implemented a constructive way for beginners to understand the violin, comprehend music theory, and figure out how to make this instrument sound good!

Excellent

I am an adult learner new to music lessons, and so was very anxious during my first violin session with Raycurt. I can't say enough about his professionalism and easy teaching style. We spoke prior to the meeting, and he told me what I needed to get started. More impressive, he showed up during a snowstorm! I highly recommend him.

About Jessica

Jessica moved to the Chevy Chase/Bethesda area in 2009, having grown up and gone to school in New York and Ohio. She loves the area, and she and her husband are thrilled to be putting down roots in the community. As a performer, Jessica has traveled around the world, but throughout her career teaching has been one of her most important focuses. "As a relative newcomer to the DC area, growing my private studio has been a great way to get involved in the community. My teaching style is individualized, but I always try to include two important things: building a strong basic skill set, and developing creativity."

I really enjoy taking piano lessons with Jessica. It had been 40 years since I took lessons (as a teenager). Jessica's manner as well as her knowledge and love of music is just what I was hoping to find in a teacher. Her ability to explain musical concepts and her thoughtful approach to teaching has far surpassed my expectations. She gives great constructive feedback and ensures that you understand what she is saying. She is very positive and patient. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with her and recommend her strongly.

Sign up for classes with John. Just do it, and you won't regret it.

Whatever the opposite of musically-gifted is, that is what I am. I'm an adult beginner in the truest sense of the word - never read sheet music, couldn't hold a beat to save my life, and hadn't played an instrument. EVER. That's why I'm still amazed that I've learned to play a couple of simple songs after a few lessons with John - it's a great achievement on his part!

John has the patience of a saint and a great ability to teach. If I don't understand a concept or have difficulty contorting my fingers to hold a certain chord, he shows me a different way and can break it down to simpler terms. He's really a great teacher. On top of that, he's laid back, approachable, amiable, and very understanding of my busy work schedule. He makes sure I leave each lesson with enough homework to practice and gives me constructive criticism to work on my technique. Like another reviewer said, John is really worth his weight in gold!!

After only a few lessons, I feel that John is an excellent teacher. He is incredibly knowledgeable and teaches in a way that is easy to understand. He selects pieces for me to practice that are both challenging and fun. I enjoy the lessons very much and would recommend John to anyone.

Over the last year, I have taken many guitar lessons in the greater DC area in search of a teacher that will help further craft my amateur skill set. To-date, Grant has not only been the most knowledgeable out of any of the musicians, he also beams with passion for the trade. Not to mention his patience and encouragement - a quality that makes even the most rookie guitarist feel like he is the next "The Edge."

I have always wanted to learn to play guitar but I never pushed myself passed learning basic cords and several elementary songs via videos and books. Recently, I decided if I wanted to really learn it was now or never and I started taking lessons with Grant. In addition to his ability to shred on the guitar, which he gladly did when I asked for a demonstration, he is a great teacher. He has been a patient teacher when I repeatedly make mistakes and always sends me off with something cool to practice before the next lesson. I strongly recommend Grant and will continue to use him as my teacher.
