I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

First lesson. Marc was great
Chris
I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

I teach from a variety of guitar methods and also help students learn and work out current and classic popular songs that I have written out for them or songs that the student may also suggest. I find that this approach inspires and motivates students while learning the
the fundamentals of the instrument.

Tom is an excellent teacher. He works great with my daughter. He is very talented and understands music. I highly recommend Tom.

Tom is a super nice guy with a great positive attitude and teaching style to match. He has lots of experience both playing and instructing. Two thumbs up!
Anya
Tom was absolutely fantastic. He seemed to be genuinely interested in my progress and just as excited as I was about me picking up the piano again - over 20 years since I’d last had lessons - which was an excellent motivator. I may have gone home and practices for a few hours. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I enjoy working with students of all ages and ability levels. With over 10 years of teaching experience, I’m confident that I can help you learn how to play more proficiently on the guitar and gain more satisfaction from your playing. I do not think that there is one “correct” approach to learning and I find that working on a variety of genres helps students grow the fastest while enjoying the process.

With an efficient combination of exercises, technical development and song learning, you'll see yourself improving on your instrument faster than you thought possible.

About Andrew

Hi, my name is Andrew. I'm a professional guitarist, bassist, and recording artist located in Virginia. I graduated from Virginia Tech in 2013 with a B.A. in Music Performance and Technology. I have over 10 years of experience teaching and enjoy working with students of all ability levels. St

Andrew is an excellent instructor and group director. He understands his craft very, very well and is able to instruct in a clear and effective manner. He has the ability to teach all ages, from young beginning musicians to senior citizens of all experience levels. His instructions lead to learning how to play very quickly. He matches his level of instruction both to the student's needs and desires. Andrew does not get locked into strict methods that can become quite boring like some other instructors, but rather tailors his instructions to the individual. If you have the desire to learn, Andrew will take you where you want to go with music. It is important to note that, as well as guitar, Andrew can play and teach drums, keyboard, bass guitar, and trombone. Thus, Andrew knows well how to blend these instruments into an effective group. He knows how to lead a band and get the most from the group.
Andrew is well educated in music. In addition to his teaching and directing abilities, he demonstrates exceptional professionalism in all he does. I have seen him work with venues to set up performances. He is clearly respected by the venues as well as his peers. I have seen his peers seek his advice on music matters relating to instruction, direction, and arrangements. While serious in his endeavors, he also demonstrates a great empathy for people and a terrific sense of humor. I have seen parents and students request him specifically because of these fine qualities. Some people are born to do certain things in life. Andrew was born to inspire and teach music to anyone interested in learning.
People enjoy music in different ways. Andrew is able to understand people's musical interests and abilities and is able to adapt his instructions according to the individual's talents and desires. He responds well to his students questions and needs. He is interested in seeing his students grow and keeps adding more challenges as his students advance. If a student prefers to go in a different direction with lessons, Andrew quickly revises his approach. I was taught by Andrew for 4 years in private lessons and group band. He presented many different types of music, riffs, and styles. It is not a stretch to say that learning from Andrew is exciting and challenging.

I teach you to be a musician, not just an instrumentalist. There is a huge difference. I give you material to learn while doing my best to make it fun as well. I teach you the basics and build on that foundation. You can learn the material as fast or as slow as you want. However, it is not a canned approach because every student is unique and your learning styles reflect that. My goal is your success, truly!

About Jerry

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands/groups. They all had one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not enjoying learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND

Michelle
Extremely unprofessional to abruptly cancel scheduled/paid lessons without the courtesy of a message or any notice because this instructor was unhappy with a 12-year-old child's progress. Very surprised by and disappointed in the manner in which he handled this situation, certainly could have been handled with more respect and maturity.

Will
Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.
