Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

With my broad performance and compositional background in folk, classical, jazz, rock, bluegrass, soul, blues, and musical theater, I offer students a wide musical perspective and tailor lessons to match student interests. I work with students on music of their choosing to improve technique and develop an understanding of music theory, improvisation, and composition.

For classical guitar students who would like to pursue the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) graded exams, Mark offers coaching in preparation for all aspects of the practical exams.

About Mark

I am a composer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter working in a variety of genres. I regularly perform around the Washington, DC, area as a solo guitarist, as a singer/songwriter, and with numerous classical, folk, rock, and musical theater groups. My primary musical influences include folk and

Mark has been a great teacher for this adult beginner! I take lessons in clawhammer banjo and ukulele with him, and his easy-going nature and skill in identifying ways to improve make it a joyful experience! Highly recommend.
SK
Mr. Sylvester is one of the greatest. He is not just an amazing guitarist, but he is also very kind. He treats people with so much respect. He speaks to me and my mom so nicely. He is very patient. He has a deep knowledge of music and knows how to get the most out of even the least talented people (like me!). He doesn't ever get mad if you make a mistake or forget to bring your music notes. We were so lucky to find Mr. Sylvester.
Virginia
Mark is a talented musician who plays and teaches multiple stringed instruments. His lessons are always informative and supportive. They are driven by the student’s interest, so anything you want o learn— styles of music, how to do a particular technique, music theory— you can bring to class. And every now and then he organizes a recital— terrifying but great practice!

When I started taking lessons at 13, I finally got closer to reaching my DREAM of being a rock star. I want to help YOU get closer to your dream of playing GUITAR, whether its electric or acoustic!

I will TEACH you how to LEARN the instrument, PLAY with CONFIDENCE, and PERFORM with PASSION.

Gave me beginner tips, and pro tricks. Taught me the basics in how to my technically proficient, but also gave me lessons on how to sound awesome to motivate. This wasn't a teacher who would just do drills all day. It was "here's the chords and methods to play your favorite songs". Motivated me to learn. Great teacher 10/10
Tristan
I found Kai's guitar lessons through a friend, but boy am I suprised! He was able to teach me the fundamentals as a newbie while keeping it engaging! Will absolutely reccomend to anyone beginner or advanced!
Matt
Best teacher ever!
I met Mr.Kai from a friend that had recommended him to me. I was nervous, at first, to be taking my very first guitar lessons. I met with Mr.Kai and immediately he made me feel at ease. He’s a very easy-going teacher and most importantly was very patient with me (I feel like i’m a slower learner). 10/10 would recommend to everyone!

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

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.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Learning how to play guitar is easy, with my step-by-step method (additional book purchase required). I give students the opportunity to learn simple technique that sets them up for future learning and beyond!
You'll learn how to hold your instrument, the parts of your instrument, how to tune it, placing fingers on the strings to get the best sound, strumming and picking. I'll throw in reading various types of written music covering chords and theory. You'll receive instruction, demonstration, and exercises for the very basics of operating it so you can master them in literally no time, and quickly move on to expanding technique and playing songs. You'll also learn how to sing and play at the same time so you can entertain your friends with the latest cover songs!

About Cosima

My main subject is voice but I also teach acoustic guitar, ukulele and songwriting for the student who desires to develop their own style and create their own songs. Not only is it fun but the music education that comes with it is highly valuable for future musicians. (guitar and ukulele rentals a

She is teaching my daughter proper breathing techniques while singing. She's great with my child.
John R.
Just finished my very first lesson with Cosima. I already learned so much. She really broke down that art of singing and made it very clear how the voice works. Then we did exercises afterwards which helped me know what I need to work on. Definitely need to check her out. She’s great!(:
Malvina S.
I had Cosima for a few months and I saw a change in my voice. Not only did she help me improve my voice but she was able to explain it in a way that I could understand the fundamentals of how singing happened. I had a song that I wanted to sing for my sisters wedding and if she didn't help I probably wouldn't have sang. I would like to say thank you to Cosima for helping me understand singing/vocal world. I was so new to it even though I have been singing from young age. She was able to help find my struggle in singing and we worked at it as much as possible to improve it. My chest voice and bridges definitely got better then what they were when I first started taking lessons with her. I have learned a lot and I have seen a difference in my voice. I'm really happy and blessed that I was able to have Cosima as my teacher. I greatly appreciate her teaching me. I recommend her as a great singing teacher.

I was mostly self taught. Taking off after my first couple of lessons. Now I’ve been playing guitar and ukulele for about 8 years. I believe that anyone can learn and that everyone will eventually find their own personal style, but I’ll take the time to help you mold that style. I have the patience to teach properly, and I care that you learn. Teaching excites me! Give me a challenge. I can teach both kids and adults

About Reymar

I took guitar classes, but learned most of what I know from peers, YouTube, and myself. I’m a performer, singer/songwriter, producer, and teacher. I taught private lessons for a few of my teachers and their family members when I was in high school. I’d say my personality is pretty goofy, but I like

"Eric is the real deal as a guitar teacher. I personally play the guitar myself, but as any parent knows when it comes to teaching your own child there is going to be some resistance no matter what! Lol. Eric is very well educated in music and has the rapport to teach beginners as well as advanced students. My son looks forward to his time with Eric and considers him a friend as well! In closing, if your looking for an instructor that has a solid music background that can channel that knowledge into your child or self, look no further!"

"Started with Jeff in January 2015 - I had tinkered off & on with guitar for about 50 years, could play a little folky stuff & bluegrass rhythm guitar but not well, never took lessons before and hadn't played much for about 40 years. Jeff started off by hearing what I could do (not much!) and went from there, mainly with rock stuff. He is a walking encyclopedia, patient, unpretentious and I have made a lot of progress and continue to feel better about it every week. I actually am inspired to practice! I would recommend Jeff to anyone who wants to learn. 5 stars!"

"I'd say Kevin is by far the best teacher I've ever had for acoustic guitar. I'm left handed, which require a special technique of instruction. I'm also well up in my years and have always wanted to learn guitar for my own enjoyment. He's patient with me, which is great, and is very fair with the time he provides for the cost. He goes the extra mile to assure I gain confidence and fulfillment with my playing. I have plenty more to learn and I only want Kevin because he teaches in a sincere and meaningful way. I'm going to start singing with my playing and am very excited about that. Kevin is awesome!!! He's genuine. I highly recommend him to anyone, at any age."
