Jason F.

Baltimore, MD

About Jason

Hi, I'm Jason. I've been teaching and performing as a full time career for 23 years. During that time, I've developed a diverse, flexible approach to teaching that is customized to the needs and interests of each of my students. I'll help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve them.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is to help you unlock your full musical potential by tailoring your lesson experience to your unique interests and goals. Your lessons will be a balance of technique and creativity. My studio is equipped with pro sound gear
and software so we can incorporate drum sounds, keyboards, bass, and guitar into your lessons.
I encourage all of my students to read standard notation, but it isn't necessary if you would prefer to learn by ear.

*** Specialties ***

-I'm comfortable teaching most styles, including R&B, Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Funk, Rock and Metal. I try to encourage all students to learn the basics of music theory, so you can understand the music you learn.

-I use a wide range of method books. I also use books that I have authored, which have been used in music programs in Baltimore area private schools and charter schools.

I've been working with Jason for about a year now and have grown so much as a musician since we started. Jason is extremely good at assessing your skill level and your goals in order to place you on a path that leads you to your higher musical self. His methods of teaching are extremely efficient and effective for getting you to where you want to be and I always look forward to our next lesson. I'm proud to call Jason my instructor and friend.

I am a beginner guitar player inspiring to become the next Eddie Hazel (Of Funkadelic fame for you unenlightened ones). I was referred to Jeremy by a former music teacher at Anne Arundel Community College. I was able to set up a weekly time with him at his house. He has a very clean and professional setting. I have been taking lessons under Jeremy's tutelage for a few months now. I have to say I am surprised at my own progress. My technical skills are blossoming but it's the music theory that is the real gift that Jeremy has given me. I always shrugged theory off thinking if I can hear it, I can play it. But now I am beginning to see the doors that music theory can open. Music is a vast universe and I have to give him credit for opening my ears, eyes, and mind to the possibilities of soooouuunds.

Jeremy has been teaching my daughter, for the past nine months. He is a great instructor and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to take guitar lessons! He is very patient with my daughter and has a great knowledge of what he is teaching. Jeremy comes to our home to give lessons which is very convenient since I work full time. I am hoping he will be able to start giving my son lessons as well as he has expressed a great interest in playing since his daughter has started.

Haley R.

Arnold, MD

About Haley

Hi! My name is Haley, and my specialties are music and math. I have been playing harp for many years. It's my passion in life, and I would love to share the gift of music with others. My musical education includes a Maters degree in Harp Performance from Yale School of Music and a Bachelor's from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. I have played with numerous orchestras, both as a soloist and orchestral musician, and currently serve as the principal harpist of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra. I have also been a prizewinner in several national and international competitions. Whil
e I always enjoy performing, I also love to teach!

In addition to music, I also hold a degree in Mathematics, another great interest of mine. So if you want to learn about anything from basic arithmetic to calculus (or beyond!) it would be my pleasure to help you understand the many wonders of the mathematical world.

Rachel S.

Elkridge, MD

About Rachel

Hi! My name is Rachel, and I have been teaching lessons professionally for over 8 years now. My primary instruments are voice and piano, and I also teach music theory/ear training/musicianship skills. I earned my degree in vocal performance from James Madison University, where I taught lessons to non-music majors as well as tutored general music for the student population. I am currently getting my masters in voice and pedagogy (teaching) from the Peabody Conservatory. I would describe my teaching style as fun and relaxed, with a strong emphasis on healthy technique. I believe that all student
s should have a strong technical foundation, and that begins on day one. Genres I teach include classical, musical theatre, pop, and accompanying skills for pianists. I can also help with audition prep on both instruments. I look forward to meeting with you!

Jordan is a good dude! In two practices I have learned more than most years of lessons. Feel like on a path to not just playing guitar, but understanding it. Also, first teacher ever that I'm not watching him play his guitar the whole time. He watches, listens, and gives excercises to learn and improve.
