Very skilled, helpful, and easy to work with! Highly recommend!

Russ is a straight up musical genius that has decades of experience playing the guitar. He will make you think of music in an entirely different way and his unique approach to the guitar makes learning so much easier. Definitely worth it!

Russ is such a wonderful teacher. He's so passionate and teaches in a way that's interesting, easy to grasp and fun! I've learned so much so quickly

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

My classes are very flexible when it comes to what the student wants. On the first class, I give the student the choice of controlling our lessons materials about what they want to learn. Or the student can choose to let me control our classes, in which I will bring my own materials and ideas in which we should work and will go through the whole academic process of learning music.

Want to play your favorite songs? Want to write your own? While focusing primarily on technique and theory, we'll also spend at least part of each lesson being creative together, whether improvising, or writing something, or just playing a game, because I believe that to be a well-rounded musician is to know how to communicate one's own ideas fluently. We'll also explore a variety of styles, including rock, country, pop, folk, and jazz, and we will learn songs using both a pick and our fingers. I can also teach students to actually read music and not just tablature, if they're interested in exploring jazz and classical music. Message me today to see if we'd be a good match!

I am a professional violinist, violist, guitarist, pianist, composer, and educator.

Music has been my passion since I was 10 years old. I didn't have any real instruments at first, so, I built my own out of coffee cans, ice cream containers and of course: a rubber band shoebox guitar! It might sound funny, but, I believe these early days of trying to create music using my "homemade symphony," forced me to really get to the core of sound and expression without the pre-set curriculum of traditional music study. Early on, I learned a few fundamental concepts of music theory that would forever change how I learned, as well as how I taught music to others. I believe these concepts set a foundation that allowed me to understand music and grow much faster - including learning multiple instruments.

And yes, I eventually acquired a real guitar and went on to study music and computers at the University of California and I currently compose music for TV and film in my own studio. I have taught guitar, bass, piano, drums, theory, composition and recording production to ...

About Peter

I currently compose music for TV, film and other digital media in my own recording studio. Prior to that, I spent about 25 years playing guitar, piano, bass and drums in bands and as a studio musician. At school I studied classical music (theory and composition) as well as orchestration and computer

I just started my second year of guitar lessons with Peter and I’m learning so much! Peter is a great teacher who is patient, encouraging and a great listener. He can “hear” the areas that I need to work on, and is able to clearly communicate ways for me to improve . He has helped me get better at my rhythm, my strumming, tempo and even an introduction to music theory. I’m now playing (and singing) some of my favorite songs! Highly recommend!

We couldn't be happier with Sergei. My 14 year old daughter has had an such a good experience with him over the past year and a half. She progressed well from day one. Plus he is easy going and a great personality for a teenager. I would highly recommend him as a teacher! Thanks Sergei for helping her to have such comfort with the guitar!

"Greg is a awesome guitar player and a great teacher.
I only took lessons for a month because I really didn’t have the time because of work and other chores I needed to give attention to but Greg was really friendly and patient and if I had the time to really focus on guitar, with the help from Greg, I’d probably be awesome by now.🤙🏽
If you’re thinking about or wanting to learn how to play, I’d highly recommend Greg.
Thank you Braddah Greg and ROCK ON 🎸"

How to Simplify Your Live Guitar Rig for Performances

Playing the guitar is such a fantastic experience. It’s so relieving to be on stage or in your designated practice space and just wail on your instrument. However, one of the difficulties of being a guitar player is deciding what gear is needed for live performances. We often get trapped in thinking that we must have the biggest and loudest guitar rig for shows, accompanied by a pedalboard equipped with 30+ pedals. Don’t get me wrong, there is something extremely satisfying about plugging in …
