About Thomas

My musical life began during the "folk boom" of the 1960's. I began songwriting and performing during my high school years. Later I was a member of a folk-rock band called The Bean Angels. We preformed and recorded in the Iowa City, Iowa area. Later I attended Montana State University where I studied music education. My training included: piano skills, music theory, music history, aural perception, conducting, and vocal pedagogy. I have several decades experience in teaching. I have taught guitar, piano, voice, and ukulele, and have directed a children's choir. *** Lesson Details *** I believe that each individual has his or her own particular learning style and pace. Accordingly I try to tailor my instruction to best fit the individual student. The first lessons will ...

I've been taking ukulele lessons from Tom for about 2 months and have just added voice lessons. Tom is a very thoughtful, kind man. He has a great deal of knowledge about the theoretical and practical/performance aspects of instruction. He is also excellent at adapting his lessons to my own particular goals. What more could you want!

About Joshua

I am an active musician in the Baltimore and Washington area working as a pianist, guitarist, producer, and composer. I am a music director at two churches and spend time gigging, writing, and teaching. I graduated from the university of the arts with a degree in music performance performing in different ensembles from Latin jazz to the school's production of "Porgy and Bess." I have been teaching students of all ages for 3 years now and love working with children. Not only will students learn to read music but will get a great sense of rhythm, balanced theory, and even songwriting for those interested. *** Lesson Details *** Music is a universal language that I believe anyone can get a basic understanding for. I cater my lessons to the individual needs of the student. I am laid back

Wilma Evangeline B. Bowie, MD

I've been teaching String Instruments like Guitar and Violin for Beginners and Intermediate level for many years. My students get to know all the parts of their string instruments like the guitar, from frets to strings, and learn how to tune their own instrument. After that, they will explore the fundamentals of music notation and find out how to produce clear, beautiful notes and chords

Enrolling in this course will take your musical talent to the next level. By the time you're finished, you'll be well on your way to becoming a skilled guitar player.

Ms.Wilma is awesome! She is patient and knowledgeable in Violin. Her expertise helped to identify that the music store provided our daughter with the wrong size violin. Once that was corrected, her playing got better. Our daughter, 4 years old, loves Ms. Wilma and is very excited for each lesson with her.

Wilma is a wonderful instructor. She is extremely patient and will go over the materials until the student understand and can play the lesson as required. I was able to sit and observe her in the lesson and was able to assist my son when he was practicing. She is always prompt and ready to go when we arrived. We never had to wait she was always prepared. My child is 6 and Wilma was able to get him focused on what he needed to do in class and he was able to replicate the lesson at home.

Ms. Wilma's enthusiasm for life and music shines through in her instrumental playing and teaching style. She shows a strong proficiency in many music genres and can teach different kinds of musical instruments.

She's reliable, experienced, professional, and easy to be around. One of her main strengths is her ability to convey musical thoughts in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.
I really enjoyed how she have enriched my ability to think about musical concepts, discuss theories in music, and listen to different types of music.

Priscilla has worked with my daughter over several weeks of beginner guitar lessons. These were in our home. She was always on time. When a cancellation was necessary due to weather, she reached out ahead of time to let us know.

As a teacher, she is wonderful with kids. My daughter (7 years old) has enjoyed every minute of every lesson, coming away very happy after each lesson. Priscilla is very enthusiastic, arrives with a very uplifting attitude for every lesson, knows how to talk to kids, knows how to give them positive reinforcement and motivate them. She left helpful homework notes after each lesson. I highly recommend her.

Priscilla is the most rude and insolent person , I ever met. I registered my daughter with her for 5 lessons. First she did not bother to call me like I was told so that we can discuss my expectations for my Daughter. The only time she did call after one week, it was just to let me know that she cannot do Saturday anymore, while I was told that she can do Saturdays. The day of the first lessons, she left me outside in the cold weather, while I was trying to find her house.
After the lesson, I forgot my cell phone there, for 2 hours, she did not bother to call me at my house number to let me know that I left my phone and when I can get it back. When I realize that I may have left my phone there, I call her, the first time her phone rang for 3 times and it went to the voicemail, the second time it went straight to voicemail, so she must have turn it off. My husband went there, texted her, called her so may times she did not open the door.
The worst thing is she unlocked my phone and called my husband, after I have sent her an email that I will report her for confiscating my property. I don`t know how she unlock my phone and what she did with my phone for the 4 hours she spent with it.
This is the worst experience I ever have. she is disrespectful, dishonest and very rude.
I will not recommend her to anybody.

Priscilla is doing a wonderful job with my now 8 year old granddaughter. She is patient, persistent, pleasant, and professional. I am very pleased with my granddaughter's progress and continued enthusiasm. Priscilla is great at keeping young minds focused and motivated. She gets them playing tunes they enjoy as well working on the theory and fundamentals. I highly recommend her for any child with a desire to learn music and play an instrument.

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.

Over the last year, I have taken many guitar lessons in the greater DC area in search of a teacher that will help further craft my amateur skill set. To-date, Grant has not only been the most knowledgeable out of any of the musicians, he also beams with passion for the trade. Not to mention his patience and encouragement - a quality that makes even the most rookie guitarist feel like he is the next "The Edge."

I have always wanted to learn to play guitar but I never pushed myself passed learning basic cords and several elementary songs via videos and books. Recently, I decided if I wanted to really learn it was now or never and I started taking lessons with Grant. In addition to his ability to shred on the guitar, which he gladly did when I asked for a demonstration, he is a great teacher. He has been a patient teacher when I repeatedly make mistakes and always sends me off with something cool to practice before the next lesson. I strongly recommend Grant and will continue to use him as my teacher.
