Guitar · In studio
I never imagined a beginner guitar class to be so comprehensive, challenging and yet so much fun. There's a lot to learn about playing the guitar from holding it to learning how to read music to playing a tune. Scott's easy going style encourages even the most slothful students like myself. We do it all in 1 and a half hours twice a week. His students have a wide range of experience with music and the guitar but at each session Scott is able to ensure that each one of us gets something out of the class. For example, he'll instruct the advanced students to play a more complicated version of a piece. Or he'll touch base with every student in the class at least twice by physically walking over and showing them something, asking a question, checking on their guitar, etc. Finally, he has those qualities that make for outstanding teachers - he not only knows and loves his work but he's really good at it. So each session is a fun mini concert lesson.

I've been taking lessons for about a month now and I have learned so much. Not only basics on the instrument but also music theory which I've always had problems with before. Each lesson is a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I look forward to my lessons each week.

Scott is easy-going, patient and seems to know what is needed for the stage of instruction that I am at. I highly recommend Scott as an instructor. He has helped me with the ukulele tremendously in just four lessons. Couldn't ask for a better instructor.

Being a professional singer, I am looking quite a bit from Scott of what I call all around vocal performance and training. He is supportive and encouraging and has years of knowledge under his belt.

If you want someone who knows his stuff, work with him.

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 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. *** Lesson Details *** I'm here to motivate students to be the best they can be, and to answer any questions or concerns they may have about their instrument. I teach out of several ...

Austin was a spectacular teacher. He established my knowledge of music quickly, and then got right to teaching. His teaching style is highly personalized for each person, allowing them to expand on their own music tastes and learn new things. In each lesson, I learned something new, and every half hour there was enjoyable. Austin was also very friendly, allowing me to feel at ease in a comfortable environment as I learned. And learn I did. During the time I was with Austin, I learned much about rudiments, sticking, the drums themselves, and music in general. Besides that, Austin also helped me find a good set to use, advising me on quality and prices.

About Brian

I picked up my first pair of drumsticks when I was 10 years old. After a little bit of practice and hard work I've gone on to teach kids and adults the best instrument in the world! Some of my heroes include Steve Gadd, Carter Beauford, Buddy Rich, Gregg Bissonette, Dennis Chambers, and any drummer who can play left-handed. I have been in bands ranging in styles from rock to funk and currently enjoy playing in instrumental funk and pop-rock bands based here in DC. Whether it's an intimate club like IOTA in Arlington or a large venue like The Fillmore in Silver Spring, I love putting on a good show. While studying Audio/Radio at Emerson College in Boston, I played drums with funk-groove band SYM while honing my skills in audio engineering. It was in the studio, I fell in love with ...

Professional Drum Teacher/Collaborator

I'm not a student, however I did play in a band in Boston with Brian for over 2 years. He was professional drummer and had a great attitude towards collaboration.

We recorded one EP at Emerson College, where Brian had an integral part in the mixing, production and of course recording.

I would recommend working with Brian!

B-rock

Brian and I shared the drum section together for several years in a local Northeast touring band. His technique and pursuit of the perfect beat were second to none. He's got a keen ear to tempo and brings unique flavors or different genres of music to the table which helped push the band in new directions.

I'd recommend Brian as a teacher based on his love and dedication to music coming from his college major to his hobbies, music and playing drums are a large part of B-rocks life.

Rock on brah.

Excellent Drummer

I have had the unique opportunity of playing in band with Brian for two years. Not only is he an incredibly technical drummer, he genuinely understands creativity and collaboration. He was also at forefront of recording one of our EP's back in '08, and it came out great! He made us sound much more professional than we were at the time. I haven't had him as a teacher, but would highly recommend him for anyone looking to learn both skill and creativity.

About Joshua

I am a recent graduate of the University of Maryland, majoring in Criminal Justice. I am looking primarily for violin students, but am more than happy to assist with English tutoring as well (I scored a 730 on the writing section of the SAT and a 680 on the Reading section). I have played violin for approximately 16-17 years and was a member of the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestra from 8th-12th grade, eventually touring Vienna and Prague with the orchestra in Summer 2009. I have taught private lessons for the past two summers and have previously worked with children as a camp counselor. I look forward to tutoring your child and helping them realize their full potential! Josh

My granddaughter is learning a lot from this fellow and is enthralled with him, She is progressing with her violin quickly and plays her instrument very much. He has her progressing beyond where I thought she would be, having only been playing for a few months and I believe she will keep at it with him as her instructor!
