About Jon

I have been playing guitar for 10 years and have been writing for about 6. I have taken lessons from various teachers for multiple years including notably the University of Maryland jazz professor Gerry Kunkel.
I can teach songwriting and performance as well as many different forms of music, with a specialty in modern rock and indie rock. I write for a DC indie rock band that has sold out the 9:30 Club & Black Cat and has played other iconic DC venues such as The Howard Theatre.
I have been teaching friends in their 20's and children for 3 years now and love working with all ages. I have a true passion for teaching and music and I look forward to getting to know my students and to help mentor them to be the best musician and songwriter they can be.
I believe I can offer an ...

Jon is a really talented and passionate teacher that I'd highly recommend. He makes the lessons fun, will tailor every one completely around your interests, and is very attentive and patient. Also, he's just a super nice guy that you'll enjoy being around. Very humble, and seems to genuinely enjoy helping people develop.
As for logistics, Jon works with my schedule and is great about communicating. I enjoy learning at his house and he even lends me a guitar so I don’t have to bring mine across the city. So I'd encourage anyone interested in guitar to seek him out... he makes it easy, really encourages you, and is the kind of teacher who will keep you moving forward.

Jessica P. Chevy Chase, MD

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.

About Austin

Music is something that everyone can share and express themselves through, and i want to help everyone to find that avenue of expression! I studied drums at the Drummers Collective in New York City, where i studied several genres of music. I play everything from rock, jazz, soul, R&B, Caribbean, and Latin music. If a student is interested in a certain style of music i would be happy to dive into that further, or explore other genres that may peek interest. The difference between me and many other teachers is that i genuinely love teaching and watching my students grow as players and musicians.

About Jeff

Hi, I’m Jeff and I have been playing the drums for over 40 years and an instructor for the past 10 years. I began my teaching career at The School of Rock where I spent one (1) year helping the drum students learn to play along to songs from various rock groups such as The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Rush, Kiss and Led Zeppelin. We also covered funk artist Sly & The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, Parliament Funkadelic and James Brown, to name a few. From there, I started teaching at Dale Music, Co., where I served as the Director of Drum Set Studies for the past nine (9) years with a concentration on performing jazz. My personal drumming style has been influenced by Steve Gadd, William Kennedy, Jimmy Cobb, Art Blakey, Steve Smith and Ndugu Chancler to name a few. ...

My son has been Jeff's student for almost 2 years. We are very grateful for the knowledge and skills that Jeff has. He has taught my son how to play the drums the correct way, and it shows! Jeff is easy to work with, and always willing to help whenever and however he can.

Jeff taught me for 7 years. Over that time he became more than just a drum teacher, he became a friend and mentor to me. I was always excited to go to his lessons because I would improve every day with him. Every lesson I would learn something new. Jeff is a great teacher and wonderful company, I'd recommend him to anyone. Perfect practice makes perfect and there are no short cuts.

About Ethan

Hello, my name is Ethan. I'm a 2014 graduate of Oberlin College and Conservatory where I studied Jazz Bass.

My main performance experience is in jazz settings--I've performed with jazz artists like Rufus Reid, Gary Bartz, Steve Turre, and Marshall Keys. Additionally, I've received Outstanding Soloist and Outstanding Small Jazz Combo Awards from Downbeat Magazine.
While the majority of my experience is in jazz settings, I've also taught rock, pop, funk, and gospel styles to electric bassists and classical styles to upright bassists. While at Oberlin I taught bluegrass, funk, jazz, arranging, improv, and classical lessons to 18-40 year olds. My teaching approach focuses on performance--it doesn't matter what style the student is interested in.
