To play the basics, and be able to accompany themselves on the guitar as they sing

About Victoria
Vicky is a music teacher originally hailing from Cocoa Beach, FL. She has been teaching since 2008, starting in the Central Florida area and then in the Southwest Virginia region. She studied music therapy at the graduate level through Radford University, and general music, with coursework in education, religious studies, and vocal training at the undergraduate level through the University of Central Florida, Orlando. At UCF she has studied with Dr. Jeremy Hunt and Kimberly Saunders Randall, and her past voice teachers include, Jason Reichman and Young Ju Lee, both FSU alumni. She started her music career with piano 20 years ago under the wing of Diana Ryder, and from there her love for music grew. Growing up, she listened to a variety of music, classical, musical theatre, Disney, pop, and Vietnamese folk and pop music. Ms. Ryder expos
ed her to a plethora of new genres and from there she developed her own style. Piano-wise her primary focuses are the romantic and baroque era, especially Bach, Beethoven, and Chopin. Vocally, her styles branch musical theatre, opera, pop, country, and on occasion touches on jazz. She has made the effort to learn as much as she possibly can about music, the different ways to play, to sing, while still keeping true to her own style. She hopes that her students have that same drive and be open to learning all sorts of music!

Since I travel for some lessons, please double check with me to make sure that I can travel to your lesson in a timely manner.

*** Lesson Details ***
I love to have fun, but I believe that in order to do so, you must know your stuff. I shall provide the resources for you to learn, and all you need to bring is your brain, eager to soak up information so that we can make music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: Piano, mirror

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to provide a piano for piano lessons, and I can provide an instrument for voice lessons. I will find the books or media the student may need, and expect the student/parents of the student are responsible for the costs.

While teaching bass is my specialty, I've been teaching guitar for 4 years and have amassed quite the collection. The overwhelming majority of my students at the shops I teach at take lessons on guitar, so most of my time is actually spent teaching guitar. In lessons, we'll cover basic chords, scales, and rhythms, as well as some introductory music theory so the student knows why they're playing what they play.

About Tommy
My name is Tommy. I've been playing bass and guitar since I was 11 years old. When I was in high school, I won my school's Duke Ellington Jazz Performance Award my junior year. Around this time I began to work at my neighborhood's local lesson shop Let's Play Music! off of W Broad Street in Falls Church, VA. Following high school, I attended the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City, studying jazz bass performance with players who have played and recorded with John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Bobby McFerrin, among others. I received my degree in Jazz Bass Performance and since returning to the DC area have taught at Let's Play Music, Bach 2 Rock, and Music and Arts. Outside of my academic accomplishments, I play in and record a number of bands. I play out at different venues from Richmond to Baltimore regularly and ha
ve gone on tour twice before. I specialize in electric bass and music theory, but am quite comfortable teaching beginner to intermediate guitar.

Guitar has always been a springboard for me for musical ideas. Teaching guitar has been very rewarding because it (like piano) gives students skills that transfer well across all instruments and musical styles which lets me see my students have fun in many different directions. My lessons are divided into sections that get students playing tunes quickly while also focusing on technique and musicality/creative exercises.

About Daniel
Hello! My name is Daniel and I have been playing and teaching bass (electric and upright) and guitar in all styles for over 10 years. I even have a Masters Degree and a double major Bachelors in music to show for it. My students have the benefit of highly customized lessons based on their interests and goals.

Hi! I teach acoustic guitar for all ages! I have 13 years experience playing and 3 years teaching. I tailor my lessons based on each individual students needs/goals. My specialty is playing and singing together, to include teaching students how to play cover songs to match their vocal range.

About Josh
My name is Josh and I love to play the guitar! I also enjoy teaching others and helping people find their passion through playing music I've been playing for 14 years, acoustic, electric, bass...you name it. I've been in a few bands (90s covers!) but find solo work to be my favorite setting. I have experience with teaching students of all ages (7 - 40). I tailor our lessons to my students specific goals and ability level. I have a unique approach by making music fun and ensuring my students are learning at their own pace. I offer instruction in how to play the guitar as well as reading and writing music and general music theory. Whatever your desire is just let me know and we will work together on acheiving your musical goals!

I am willing to travel to your location, meet at a park on a nice day, or book studio time (if requested) at a
local studio. I also will invite you into my home to practice, whatever works for you!

I'm looking forward to working with you!

Josh

I have been playing guitar for almost 12 years now. I have helped many musicians for their auditions into various music schools and programs and each have been granted acceptance, some even received scholarship. I am currently studying music for a degree in music education with an emphasis on guitar pedagogy. I also like to teach and incorporate elements regarding ear training and music theory. Music is very personal and should be treated as such, therefore I believe the student should have a wide latitude of input for what they wish to learn and goals they deem fit to achieve. I am truly driven towards playing and spreading the love of playing music and will help the student reach their highest potential possible. I can teach blues, rock, pop, jazz, and classical.

About Taylor
Music is a world within itself, your instrument a microcosm of that world which you create. There are no rules, no limits except the ones you put on yourself. This idea means volumes to me and the ability to pass on this feeling to someone else is beyond success to me. I love to teach and am willing to go wherever the student wants to go and give them the necessary tools in order to build the world they want to create. I have been playing for almost 12 years and have a lot to share that I've learned over that time. I teach blues, rock, pop, jazz, funk, R&B, and classical styles as well as improvisation the the necessary music theory and ear training to go along with it. I can also teach elements of songwriting if the student wishes to song write. I have helped students with their auditions into various music schools and programs all of wh
ich they have been accepted into, some even receiving scholarship. I have also tutored students from freshman in college to juniors in college in music theory and ear training. I have played with various jazz bands and combos as well has pop and jam bands around the Radford Virginia area.

I cannot wait to meet the student and take their playing and musicianship to new heights!

About Ben
Hi! I'm a 24 year old musician with a wide range of experience and a very patient personality. I've been giving lessons to children since I was in high school, and I love to pass the knowledge of music on to anyone willing to learn.

I grew up in the small town of Galax, VA where bluegrass music has its roots. You could easily pick my southern accent out of a crowd here in the DC area.

I've played in many bluegrass bands and a few blues and jazz groups.

About brett
I am the lead instructor and owner of our lesson studio, American Music Studio. We believe that music is the universal language. It's math, communication, culture, and science. Music is emotional, can tell stories, and be poetic. Even greater it's therapeutic and educational; a tool that can stimulate brain growth and learning at any age. Most importantly, it's fun and enjoyable. Everyone loves music, of some kind and in some way.

I have been teaching for over a decade now with experience in song writing, performance, sound engineering, mixing and mastering, and more.

We are fully equipped for all lessons and encourage our students to experiment with instruments beyond their primary choice. Musician
s shouldn't be limited to expressing themselves through just one instrument alone.
