My methods vary from student to student. I focus primarily on ear training, applications of chord construction to learning solo's, songs, and chords, and reading guitar tablature when a student is lost. I believe guitar is an especially creative instrument and do NOT focus on reading sheet music as a part of the student's learning experience. An emphasis is also placed on performance as well as proper technique to avoid injuries. Listening to music is an extra-curricular activity that should be done every day with a special emphasis on hearing what the 'greats' do with a magnificent piece of wood in their hands.

About Greg

I have been playing guitar for over 14 years, played in four different gigging bands ranging from country to jazz to improvisational funk. I taught music theory, guitar, and bass at M.E.A. Music in Lexington Park, Maryland for 3 years and currently teach and manage at the School of Rock in Arnold.

Private Guitar Teacher

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.

Brandon is a great teacher and I definitely recommend! He's tailored the lessons right away to my music interests and skill level while still taking time to focus on the techniques I need to learn for bass. I've had a few lessons online and have already learned way more in these few weeks than I would ever have learned on my own. The online format works great for my schedule.
Ross
Brandon is a great teacher. I had my first lesson with him yesterday and he can play and takes the time to show you exactly what you are doing. I was skeptical of an online lesson with a teacher but it was a blast and in my first lesson I learned a lot of valuable things that I can put in my toolbox. I look forward to learning and to keep taking lessons. Oh and practicing! Highly recommend Brandon.
marty
My first lesson with Brandon was a really instructional and inspiring interaction. Brandon listened to my goals and inspired me to become disciplined in practicing every day. His future classes and goals for me where explained after the first class. Both he and I have an understanding of where I want to be in the future and I know he will do everything he can to help me achieve my goals. Thanks Brandon!

Guitar Lessons in Baltimore

By Ben P. - Baltimore Guitar Teacher

Think back to all the things you have learned to do in your life such as riding a bike, tying your shoes or changing a tire. Now think back to the activities you participated in as a child: dance, karate, ice-skating, skiing, and swimming. Think back to the team sports you participated in and the after-school clubs you attended. Chances are you spent a lot of time learning as you were growing up, whether from your parents, instructors, coaches or teachers. Chances are you learned much of what you know in your life because you invested time in something that interested you and were guided by a knowledgeable teacher or coach. From the time we are young and throughout most of our lives, we are learning from others. It’s the rare case that we learn something completely independently and master it, succeed at it, or make money doing it. Even the simple pleasures of life are more pleasurable when we feel we have control over what we are doing, be it fishing, gardening, practicing yoga or kick-boxing. We enjoy the things that we are good at and that we understand.

Count in your head how many people you know that “play” the guitar - not that actually understand music theory, can read and write music proficiently and have some level of mastery of their instrument, but if you were to bring it up in conversation would say they can “play the guitar a little?” And what does “a little” mean? It means that they don’t actually know how to play. It means that they memorized a few chords and can strum them well enough to churn out a couple of songs. It means that they know how to play the pentatonic scale and can solo over a 12-bar blues progression. Perhaps it’s because the rock and roll image doesn’t promote students of music, but rebellions of study, the anti-student. But the key word in that statement is “image.” Many rock musicians have studied music at some level, whether privately or collegiate.

But what about the rest of us, who simply enjoy learning new things, who love music and want to learn how to make it? Did your 4th grade teacher assume you already knew how to do long division? Did your swim instructor demand you swim the breast stroke in your first lesson? Why then would you expect that you could learn to do something as complicated and beautiful as learning to play an instrument without some guidance? If you want to be more than the person who “can play a little,” then you should consider taking guitar lessons in Baltimore with a certified instructor who can help you achieve this goal. Learn the basics, the theory of music and why it works. You will not only become better at your instrument, but you’ll learn techniques for making music that you’ll treasure as much as the memory of the day you took off your training wheels and rode down the street all on your own.
