Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I started playing acoustic guitar when I was seven years old. I have been playing and teaching mostly bluegrass, old time, Irish, blues, and swing jazz styles for many years. I have taught both privately and have also done various workshops at festivals. I have taught guitar multiple years for instance at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival in PA.
My students learn to have fun with music. Students can work on rhythms, melodies, improvisation, song writing, getting into and/or hanging on in a jam session, etc.

Tara is a very knowledgeable and easy-going instructor. Her ability to teach theory in bite-sized chunks while keeping the lesson light and fun is extremely commendable. No grad-school music theory textbooks here, just color-coded fun. Her mnemonic devices are also hilarious. 6/5 stars

Great!

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of piano and guitar skills. I typically use Alfred's Basic books: lesson, technic, and theory books. I also provide students with homework sheet that explains what we have been focusing on, what they have achieved, and what is the expectation for next lesson.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

About David

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playing

Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced guitar player interested in learning more chords, notes, strumming patterns, finger picking styles, guitar theory or how to read tab? Do you just want to get better at that acoustic guitar you've had? Or learn a song for a special occasion?

Acoustic guitar was the first instrument I gravitated towards and learned 13 years ago, and now my acoustic guitar is a must have whether I'm home or on the road. I write a majority of my songs on the guitar & love the unique style of bonding that everyone has in relation to their guitar.

Whether you are planning on leading with it, using it as accompaniment to someone else/yourself, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know to meet your guitar goals! If you have any questions, please message me!

Mikala is a great piano instructor, clear, helpful and patient. Highly recommended!
Chuck
Mikala was an absolute treat to work with. I was apprehensive about singing to my wife at our wedding reception. So I hit up take lessons and connected in under 30 minutes.

Lessons were given at her studio in her home, and over the course of 8 weeks we transformed my vocals from uncertainty, to the confidence I needed to nail my solo performance.

10/10 would recommend to anyone seeking to improve their vocals. Just make sure you do the homework she sends you with (vocal warm ups, breathing camps, and daily practice) and you'll see results in a little as the first visit.

Her personality and encouragement were absolutely infectious and really lent to an overall positive experience.
Rachel
Really great experience for our daughter working with Mikala.

He is a well-planned, experienced teacher who artfully progresses students from week to week in a manner that is constructive and fun. In only 5 weeks I have learned more about playing guitar and guitar theory than I would have thought. He has been attentive to my goals and it is precisely the experience that I pay for."

He has been a pleasure to work with and extremely professional and conscientious as an instructor, easily working around our challenging summer schedule. Jordan is my boys' fourth or fifth guitar instructor, and I'm so happy to report that they are more enthusiastic about guitar and practicing more than they have in the past! My boys, who both have ADHD, have appreciated his patient, calm and friendly approach. They say he "doesn't get frustrated", that he is open minded and really makes things understandable. We would definitely recommend him as an instructor, and hope to continue taking lessons from him in the future!"
