Adam is a teacher par excellence. I am self taught from a well known book. I was doing well I thought until I got stuck. Adam gently showed me where I erred and made great suggestions for me to move on correctly. I never felt rushed or “ put down.” Adam was patient, open for questions, encouraging, comforting. I know I need much help to correct and advance in guitar from matters such as tuning, restringing, reading, and other things too many to write about. I look forward to my next lesson with enthusiasm.

Tony is a great teacher!

I started learning the clarinet half a year ago after playing the piano for almost 25 years. Even though I have a lot of music background, I had to start from scratch since I have no experience in any of the woodwind instruments. I'm glad I found Tony to be my clarinet teacher because not only he is a very patient person, he also notices my strengths and also weaknesses, so that I could spend more time on things that I need to work on to be better at the clarinet.
He is very easy to communicate, lessons are always fun and productive, I've been having a lot of fun picking up this new instrument!

Online Bass 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 playin

I had to switch the lesson to in-home roughly 3 hours before the scheduled lesson. David was great and accommodating. He gave me a crash course on scales, which I didn't know anything about, and explained them so that I actually started to understand.

My first lesson with David was excellent! He is very patient and knowledgeable. I now have extremely high expectations for learning to play the guitar. I highly recommend him. He gave me a thorough explanation about how guitars are made made, the parts, we tuned the guitar and I am ready to groove!

"Awesome Instructor

I have been studying the bass with Andrew for just over two years with a concentration on Jazz theory. Andrew uses a step by step approach geared to my learning style - we have switched directions several times. Andrew's attention to detail and his desire for me to learn the right way is more than impressive. There have been lessons where I have not played a note but instead focused on reviewing different concepts. I'm fifty-seven years old and things don't come as easy as they use to and I really appreciate Andrew's patience and availability. I highly recommend Andrew for someone who is serious about learning to play the bass."

"I have been studying bass playing techniques and music theory with Rob for several months now. Short story: he's great.

Rob's lesson format is pretty open. If you have specific questions/goals, Rob makes sure that they are addressed. He's been able to give me some great information on various techniques and styles, and I've picked up a good bit of general practical bass knowledge this way.

Rob is VERY knowledgeable about music theory, and its evolution over the centuries. That being said, discussions on music theory are always made relevant to bass playing. This makes learning the theory and patterns very practical, and for me, more approachable.

Thanks Rob!"
