Jason F.

Baltimore, MD

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.

Jason is extremely good at assessing your skill level and your goals in order to place you on a path that leads you to your higher musical self. His methods of teaching are extremely efficient and effective for getting you to where you want to be and I always look forward to our next lesson. I'm proud to call Jason my instructor and friend.

Travis P.

Cheltenham, MD

About Travis

Hi,

My name is Travis, and I have been playing trumpet for 17 years. I have been teaching for 8. I love working with new students, and became more focused on private lessons during my Sophomore year in college. Speaking of which, I earned a Bachelors of Music in Trumpet performance from the University of Maryland College Park.

While there, I played with the Wind Orchestra, Symphonic Orchestra and Jazz Band. I am also a regular performer with the Prince Georges Phil Harmonic.

As each student is different, so is my technique and teaching method. Generally, I have students work
through the fundamentals of the instrument including fingerings, embouchure, breathing, and scales. Once mastered, the more difficult obstacles such as repertoire, range, dexterity and endurance are approached. I do not work with a set schedule for students, and tailor the lesson plan for the student's growth and practice.

Travis is very polite, easy to talk to and my son really enjoyed his first lesson with him. My son is very much looking forward to continuing to learn the trumpet with Travis. I highly recommend him as an instructor.

A wonderful instructor for my 6 year old daughter. I appreciate how he mixes theory and truly teaching her what she is playing and why she is playing it a certain way, with fun and enjoying playing the piano. I can see that she is getting a lot out of the lessons. I would highly recommend Travis for these types of lessons.

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.

Haley R.

Arnold, MD

About Haley

Hi! My name is Haley, and my specialties are music and math. I have been playing harp for many years. It's my passion in life, and I would love to share the gift of music with others. My musical education includes a Maters degree in Harp Performance from Yale School of Music and a Bachelor's from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. I have played with numerous orchestras, both as a soloist and orchestral musician, and currently serve as the principal harpist of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra. I have also been a prizewinner in several national and international competitions. Whil
e I always enjoy performing, I also love to teach!

In addition to music, I also hold a degree in Mathematics, another great interest of mine. So if you want to learn about anything from basic arithmetic to calculus (or beyond!) it would be my pleasure to help you understand the many wonders of the mathematical world.
