Jason F.

Baltimore, MD

Bass guitar is the foundation of every band. Learn to perfect your timing and compliment any chord progression. Learn sight reading (standard notation and tablature), syncopation, walking bass lines, improvisation and composition.

My studio is the perfect environment for studying bass. You can expect to hear your bass line accompanied by guitar, keyboards, and drum machine/ drum loops. Within just a few lessons, you'll be learning your favorite songs, and music theory to understand the creative choices made by your favorite artists.

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.

Scott G.

Silver Spring, MD

As a professional musician of 45 years I have the ability to guide anyone and help them focus on their musical goals
For beginners the basics of rhythm, musical styles and practical fretboard knowledge are essential.
For more intermediate and advanced students we will pursue more technical styles as such as Funk, Rock, Jazz and Classical repertoire depending on the students needs or desires.
My goal is to have my students playing quickly and understanding what it is they are trying to accomplish

He has worked with The Glenn Miller Orchestra and The Modernaires; The Peter Duchin Orchestra; The Ink Spots; The Tokens; Rory (Disney Channel); Charlie Byrd; Susannah McCorkle; Keely Smith & John Colianni (accompanist for Mel Torme) to name a few.

Besides playing a in few theater pits, Scott has also performed on the stage as a musical character in the Kennedy Cen

Scott is kind, easy-going, knowledgeable, versatile, encouraging, patient, and quite talented. Music is his life, and he really enjoys time with students. He has all the equipment one might possibly need, and then some. I'm learning a lot about singing, and about myself, from him. Great guy, great teacher!

Nathan R.

Halethorpe, MD

I can teach all genres as well as all the different techniques, such as slap and pop, two handed tapping, etc.

About Nathan

I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method boo
k appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

Jeremy B.

Curtis Bay, MD

Students can experience a lesson plan directly formulated towards their own personal interests. This could range from basic guitar fundamentals, which include learning basic chords, scales, reading music, playing different rhythmic patterns and playing beginner level songs. More advanced topics could also be implemented such as, modes, rhythmic syncopation, and harmonic chord progressions. Also, if the student wants to learn how to play their favorite songs this can also be arranged.

About Jeremy

I have been an avid music lover my entire life and have also been playing music for almost 20 years, while having experience playing music in multiple bands around the Baltimore/D.C./Virginia area. I enjoy listening and playing all types of music and genres. I graduated from Anne Arundel Community College with an Associates degree in Transfer Studies while focusing and completing their music theory program. Currently I am attending the University of Maryland Baltimore County while pursuing a Bachelors degree in Music Education.
I have proficient skills in music performance, sight reading
, sight singing, music theory, part writing and I play guitar, bass and some keyboard.
I look forward to teaching all inspired musicians to help them fulfill their aspirations.

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.
