Jason F.

Baltimore, MD

About Jason

I have been teaching and performing as a full time career since 1994. Over the years, I have developed an approach to teaching that is customized to the needs and interests of each of my students. I will help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve those goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Musicians think, learn, and create in many different ways. Some are visual learners, preferring to learn by studying diagrams and reading notes. Others learn intuitively, simply by listening, imitating, and then creating. My objective is to find the lear
ning style which works best for each of my students. I can help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve those goals.

*** Specialties ***
I'm comfortable teaching any style, from bluegrass to jazz, blues, rock and metal.

I've been working with Jason for about a year now and have grown so much as a musician since we started. Jason is extremely good at assessing your skill level and your goals in order to place you on a path that leads you to your higher musical self. His methods of teaching are extremely efficient and effective for getting you to where you want to be and I always look forward to our next lesson. I'm proud to call Jason my instructor and friend.

Richard C.

Glen Burnie, MD

About Richard

I am a graduate of the Peabody Conservatory with a Bachelor's Degree Major in Piano and a Teaching Certificate. Through my world-class teachers I can trace my musical education lineage directly to Mozart, Liszt, Haydn, Chopin, Mendelssohn and Beethoven. Over several decades I have taught more than 3,000 beginning and advanced students, a number of whom have gone on to earn piano performance scholarships from prestigious conservatories, music schools and universities. I have composed my own course method based on the piano teaching method of Carl Czerny, a student of Beethoven and the teacher o
f Franz Liszt. I often compose compositions for students that are based their four or five note ideas. Beginners quickly gain confidence to perform in public and learn to perform increasingly difficult and lengthy compositions such as the Beethoven sonatas, Chopin scherzos, works of J.S.Bach and many others all from memory. One of my students just completed, from memory, a Beethoven sonata of 28 pages. Every year my students perform, with a least three pieces from memory, at a public recital where each of them gets the opportunity to play before an audience.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students must have a piano or keyboard at home and are expected to practice every day. I have written and published the music and the course of study for all first year beginners; They learn proper fingering, how to memorize music by learning finger patterns, and how to count in rhythm. The time they spend in practice will determine how quickly they advance, and upon completion this initial course, they begin to study works by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin. Children can begin lessons from the age of 4, but until a child is 7 years old, parents must agree to be fully engaged in the process, willing to participate in the lessons and to practice regularly, with the child at home.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio are two Mason Hamlin grand pianos. A professional concert adjustable stool and a collection of nearly all classical piano music.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When students come to my studio, I provide a grand piano; When I teach in my students' homes, they must have a piano.

*** Specialties ***
Vengerova Method based on the French School; Close Fingering Techinque

I am a senior in my 70s. Teacher very cordial. Liked his way of explaining the way to learn the piano. I never played so was a bit nervous. He inspired me. Practice lessons were enjoyable. Looking forward to my additional lessons. First time in my life with belief that I will be able to play the piano.

My students will quickly learn the basics of drumming, including: stick control, technique, rhythms, drum fills, and licks. It does not matter if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced drummer. The same time and effort will be exercised. We will have a fun and meaningful time playing, both by ear and by reading music. These lessons will really be hands on using teaching methods such as music books, DVD’s, and playing of my own. Students will have a great time also studying music theory, learning how to assemble the drum set, learning the parts of the drums, how to tune the drums, and how to accompany other musical instruments.

Nathan R.

Halethorpe, MD

About Nathan

I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method boo
k appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

Jordan is an excellent teacher, he can play just about anything on the guitar and he teaches you how to teach yourself. Ive been with Jordan for 3 years and I've gone from complete beginner to being in a band myself. I used to feel so overwhelmed and didn't know which direction to go,now i know how to learn a song on my own and how to build up my technique,i can improve on my own. Jordan is a great teacher and he pushed me and i'm super lucky to have found him. p.s.... Jordan is super beast of a guitar player too, i have my own band now but i still haven't seen anyone that's better than him

Advantages & Disadvantages of a Fretless Guitar

The lack of frets create an entirely unique, warm, but less amplified sound that works across all types of music. In order to truly understand what a fretless guitar is, it is first … Read More
