David S.

Highland, MD

As mentioned above, 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!

My lessons with Parker have been outstanding!! He is the perfect instructor for me, and I am very happy to have found him: extremely professional and knowledgeable, kind, patient, and encouraging. I especially enjoy his positive attitude and fun sense of humor, and his lessons are challenging me at just the right pace. Plus, I especially appreciate the opportunity to take lessons online, since I live on an island, and do not have access to in-person lessons. Every week with Parker is another Five Star experience!!

The foundation of music lessons is good ears and good time feel (groove). These are skills that all the best musicians have. That, along with some study of guitar basics will cover about half of our lesson time. The other half should be devoted to the kind of music that inspired you to look me up. My hope is that you will become a well rounded musician and guitar player, and that I can show you some music I think is cool. I also hope you bring in cool stuff I've never heard of, and then I can show you how to play it :-)

I also enjoy preparing for auditions, and competing for placement in school ensembles and for scholarships.

This was our first lesson and first impression is that he was very patient with our boys. Our boys have some special needs and he was understanding and accommodating. It's clear he is very knowledgable about the instrument. Time will tell if his teaching style and personality will work for us in the long run.

I played clarinet for ten years. I wanted to find a teacher who really knows how to focus on a student's goals and weaknesses. Kevin has provided me with weekly lessons that I can take home and make trues progress in picking, timing, reading, fingering, and listening, Kevin is a true professional.

Eric has done a wonderful job with my teenage son! By offering instruction that met him where he was at and building upon it, he has learned so much. Furthermore, Eric has inspired my son to play to guitar by choosing things to work on that excite him. With Eric, my son is not only developing his guitar skills and abilities, but Eric passion has increased my son's love of playing guitar.
