I was Omar's first student, and even when he did not have teaching experience, he was excellent. From the first day of lessons, I learned the basics of the electric guitar and never stopped. Even during busy touring schedules, he made time to come to lessons and always kept me interested and involved. I learned under Omar for 7 years, during this time, he not only taught me how to play guitar, but how to understand music as a whole much better.

Acoustic Guitar · In studio
Omar taught me how to play the guitar in 2007 when I was 15 years old. I didn't know ANYTHING about playing the guitar. I was so bad, I used to tune my strings down to the same note. Omar laid down the foundation that I needed to follow in order to play good music. The cool thing about him is that he dissects and breaks down every note in ways you can understand. He also has a good attitude and makes learning really fun. Now, 7 years later, I can be able to make my guitar sing! I also played in numerous bands since then. In the 4-5 months he taught me, he really set down the foundation of what I needed to do to pursue my playing. Schedule a lesson with him and you will see what I am talking about!

Mayumi G.

Greenbelt, MD

About Mayumi

American jazz saxophonist and composer Charlie Parker said, Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn. This sentiment shaped my views on music and its performance. One of my great pleasures in life is sharing an appreciation of music. I had always been a part of music. My father played trumpet, my mother could play guitar and carry a tune. They believed music was an important part of life so they started me on piano at 5 years old. And I've been playing that ever since. I started learning to sing in my middle school chorus when I was 11 years old. I really liked it and I liked it more when I would sing my mother and father'€™s favorite songs and see them smile. So I listened to a lot of singers and vocalists ...

Andrew T.

College Park, MD

About Andrew

Musically and personally, I strongly feel that diversity and openness are key in a person's development: when we move outside of our comfort zone and embrace the unknown, we are better able to grow as musicians (and human beings). As a performer, I feel that performing with musicians of different backgrounds is a constant source of inspiration and engaging music. As an educator, I emphasize the role of music as a form of expression and its parallel to verbal language. As children, we learn words and sentences so that we can accurately and gracefully express ourselves and, in this sense, music is no different. I encourage students to enjoy the music-making process and to view mechanics as a means to an end. I have been dedicated to the drums since the age of 9 and since then I have been

Great Experience

From the first lesson, Andrew has been a consummate professional. Each lesson he brings in something new, while making sure that everything we've covered in the past is still ingrained through repetition. Having Andrew as an instructor has opened my eyes to the many facets of drumming, and I have taken skills/techniques with me that will last forever. The feedback does not stop after each lesson, Andrew is available all the time for any questions I may have during the week if I am stumped while practicing. His schedule is flexible with mine, and he is willing to bring in music that I want to personally learn. The lessons are the right balance of fun and teaching, and his studio promotes a learning environment that is not intimidating to let loose if you're a beginner like me.

I'd recommend Andrew to anyone looking to expand their skill set, the lessons have been a great experience.

Mr. Johnson is a FABULOUS violin instructor. I haven't played in 20 years, and after a few lessons my technique is coming back. His teaching style is one where he pushes you beyond your expectations. He's an excellent teacher for beginners and experienced violinists. I also love that he is so talented in many genres of music...such a gifted violinist. Hope to play like him again soon. I highly recommend this teacher.

Lisa is a fabulous and generous teacher. I was very scared about embarking on this venture to try and learn to sing. She has been encouraging and gentle and very, very helpful. She instills hope as well as provides me with the encouragement to keep getting better and better. I highly recommend Lisa as an excellent teacher.
