I can teach all levels and many styles. I make it easy for you to learn at your own pace so you can achieve your goals and have fun playing music.

About Thomas
Tom has a music degree focused in guitar performance and a combined professional teaching and performance career that spans over twenty years.

Tom began teaching in 1994 and still practices today instructing students of all ages on guitar and bass techniques, as well as music theory.

Tom is very laid back and embraces working at the pace that each of his students feels most comfortable. Lessons are about the student’s ambitions. If it is learning their favorite songs or a deep dive into music theory, jazz improvisation or songwriting it can be covered in strides that seem fit to the student. Books can be used for guidance and a custom lesson plan created that will fit specific criteria desired to be achieved by the student. Remember, practice makes perfect. The more you put in, the more you will get out of it!!

I have been playing guitar for over 20 years and teaching for about eight. I studied classical and jazz guitar at the University of Central Florida, but I've been playing blues and rock guitar for almost 15 years now.

I am happy to teach the basics of blues guitar to the beginner or intermediate player - chord progressions and harmonic theory that underscores blues music, pentatonic and other appropriate scales and modes, rhythm and syncopation, and perhaps most importantly - how to improvise on the guitar.

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

Get happy, play the blues! All the different styles can be explored. We'll start with simple blues scales and work towards understanding why certain notes go with certain chords. From there, improvisation and comping get so much easier.

About Tim
I am a Hartt School of Music trained classical guitarist raised on the electric guitar. With over 20 years of teaching experience, I have helped students of all ages achieve their musical goals. Whether it's getting into the school jazz band, a college degree program or simply playing for friends, I can help you get there. My studio is a spacious and equipped learning environment designed with the guitarist in mind.

Tim is an excellent guitar teacher and an overall great guy. He provided me with structure and support, enabling me to make the most out of my practice and ultimately progress as a player. His warm personality and contagious enthusiasm for music kept me looking forward to our time together each week. He was also very flexible when it came to scheduling to accommodate for my dynamic schedule.

Heading into my first class with Tim, I had almost no musical experience (at least for the last 15+ years). In a very casual way, he was able to get a sense of where I was and where he should start with my instruction.

I was very reluctant to take lessons at first, but my wife got me started with Tim and it was really worth it. He was accommodating to my relatively slow speed of learning and easily adapted to my own musical preferences and interests.

His studio is a great space and is located within a really cool, historic building. The sound is fantastic and it's a comfortable space to practice in.

I highly recommend Tim for lessons - especially for adults who may not be able to dedicate hours a day to practicing. I took lessons weekly for three months and I got a great foundation for practicing. Once my life settles down a little, I definitely hope to go back.

Learn the chords, scales and techniques you need to play Blues Guitar. We will use songs you want to learn and a combination of my own material, videos, jam tracks and other's existing material as appropriate to meet your goals.

About Bob
Take Guitar or Bass Guitar lessons from an experienced teacher and Hartt College graduate. In person one on one private lessons or webcam lessons if that is more convenient. Your lessons will be customized for what you want to learn. Rock, Blues, Folk, Country, Classical, Music Theory, chord playing, lead guitar, music reading, songwriting etc. Lessons can be as easy or challenging as you like depending on your goals. If you are new to guitar or bass guitar, if you tried playing guitar before and it didn't work out, or if you have been away for awhile, I'll do my best to make it a rewarding experience. If you have been playing for many years but feel stuck in a rut, I can get you out of it and teach you things you have wanted to learn. Great teaching environment. I also have free supplementary lesson videos available here (at takelessons)
and on my website.

Guitar is my main instrument as a music major in college. I want students to learn at their on pace while motivating them to progress with each lesson. Students should be able to request certain genres and songs to learn. I am open to teaching any genre as well as the theory aspect necessary to truly understand the guitar.

Are you a total beginner and just want to learn some of your favorite songs?

Would you like to learn some music theory and how to read music on the guitar?

Do you want to branch out into different styles of music such as Spanish guitar or jazz? 

Can you already play rhythm guitar but want to learn how to play lead and acquire some SICK TECHNIQUE and SPEED?!!

Whatever your musical goal may be, I have the educational background and teaching experience to take you there! Years of flamenco, classical and jazz studies at the university level and with some of the area's most renowned instructors have left me uniquely qualified as a guitarist. And over a decade of imparting knowledge in a FUN and RELAXING way has given me the experience to become a patient teacher who gets great results! Several of my students have gone on to prestigious conservatories, started successful bands and have students of their own! Group beginner lessons in the Silver Spring area are forming now and ...

About Amilcar
Greetings! I'm a professional guitarist, composer, music teacher and recording artist. I have an associates degree in composition from Montgomery College and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Maryland. Along with teaching guitar lessons, I've been performing with other musicians and my own award winning band all over the U.S. and internationally for the past 18 years.

My training in a diverse group of styles including classical, Latin (salsa, merengue, cumbia, bachata, bossa nova, Gypsy Kings), flamenco, jazz, blues and rock have left me uniquely qualified as a performer. It has allowed me to share the stage with a diverse group of notable musicians and international pop stars such as Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Little Anthony and the Imperials, Luis Enrique, Jerry Rivera, Nestor Torres, David Pabon, Fonseca, Scot
t Ambush and Chuck Redd. In addition, my band has released three LPs since 2007 that garnered positive reviews and awards along with placements on TV shows such as "Chelsea Lately" and NBC's "Smash".

My teaching philosophy is to make learning fun, easy and rewarding...and I've gotten some pretty great results! I've had the pleasure of seeing some of my former students play on nationally televised late night shows, hear their songs on the radio, see them billed on big music festivals such as Firefly and SXSW, get accepted into competitive music programs and start their own successful music teaching businesses.

Lessons are offered online or in your home or mine in the Silver Spring, MD area. Beginning students will have songs to play right away and will see steady weekly progress with chords and single note riffs and melodies. Intermediate and advanced students are evaluated so that I can assess their strengths and weaknesses so that I can guide them to achieving their musical goals. It's always a kick to watch students play things that they thought they could never play!

Thanks for reading and I look forward to helping you become the guitar player you want to be!

My guitar instruction is rooted in years of practical experience. I've played in countless bands, recorded multiple albums, and played a diverse array of venues, and I infuse my teaching with that knowledge.

My goal is to mold students into functional, useful musicians. I want to equip my students with the necessary tools and relevant knowledge to tackle unique issues in the modern musical landscape. Additionally, I have a keen focus on utilizing new technologies in the pursuit of musical excellence.

About Ray
The key to creative is a fresh approach, a new perspective. I realized this long ago, and I began to infuse this concept into my music teaching as well. I have been teaching guitar, bass, and voice lessons since 2007, and I have been told so many times that "my old teacher just didn't get it." or "he didn't understand today's music." A teacher's paradigm is the ultimate gauge of their ability to lead you forward.

My perspective is rooted in years of real-world experience. I've performed in front of thousands of people, written and recorded multiple albums, and traveled the country in my own creative pursuits, and I long to share the knowledge I've gained along the way.
