Kathleen L.

Woodbridge, VA

I prefer to teach note reading early on with the Hal Leonard System.

About Kathleen

*** Travel Equipment *** I can provide sheet music and some learning tools. I expect the students to have a notebook, a music stand, and a quiet place to work. *** Specialties *** I teach both classical violin and fiddle. I use the Suzuki Method for classical violin. For fiddle, I teach Irish, Scottish, Old-time, and Bluegrass, each using a combination of learning by ear and fiddle transcriptions.

Kathleen is truly an answered prayer! Her credentials are impeccable, so we know that Karli is receiving superior instruction. However, it is her sweet and lovely spirit that we love. Initially unsure of how well "online" lessons would go, we are so thankful for the convenience, coupled with excellence, that we are privileged to have with Kathleen.

Lola M.

Woodbridge, VA

Each lesson is tailored to fit each individual student. We will cover genres of music that is of interest to you, using music you enjoy most so learning the guitar will be fun. Even if you have experience playing guitar, I will be able to show you alternative strum patterns, picking patterns, useful techniques, tricks and short-cuts to make playing easier. This applies to whether you are learning acoustic, classical or electric guitar. I have a blast teaching and my students have fun learning!

About Lola

I have more than 30 years of musical experience. I’ve taught guitar, piano, bass, and theater in private schools, art schools and I’m currently teaching at Classic Axe Guitar Gallery in Gainesville, VA. I’ve taught over 250 students in all levels of experience, tailoring each lesson to fit each student, covering all genres, so that learning their instrument is fun. It’s been exciting to see some of them become music majors, some of them become performers, and some using their skills and gifts to teach others. I love teaching and sharing my musical knowledge with people of ALL ages. I believe anyone can learn music, with the right approach and encouragement. Nothing gives me more pleasure than watching my students accomplish more than they ever dreamed possible.

I am new to the guitar and I have to say Lola is making it an enjoyable experience. She does an exceptional job of explaining steps and pushes the student to progress. I couldn't of asked for a better instructor.

I loved taking guitar lessons with Lola! She's excellent with beginners of all ages. I've seen her coax actual chords out of clueless eight-year-old and empower adults to take the stage for the first time ever. Lola is a wonderful encourager and always easy to work with.

Mike C.

Fredericksburg, VA

Mike C. started learning Guitar from his father at the age of 12, cutting his teeth on the music of Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Genesis, Keith Green, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Nirvana, and many others. He played in many a garage band throughout Middle School, High School, and College. He also started playing Guitar regularly at his church, teaching and leading bands for their Sunday services - something that has continued to this day. These days he plays a little bit from every genre and style, but his teaching primarily focuses on the bread and butter of guitar music: chords, scales, note reading, and the basics of style and effects in guitar playing.

Mike has been a great guitar instructor to our 10 year old. He takes his time explaining each lesson with him and is very patient. Colin looks forward every week to spending time with Mike. He is only three lessons in and is already making progress and can play short songs. We are very pleased at the progress Colin has made and we appreciate Mike coming to our home and teaching Colin.
