Music theory can be a daunting and sometimes unpleasant element of learning an instrument, whether it's piano, guitar, bass, or your voice. I love teaching the elements of music theory in a fun, easy to understand way. If you want to improve your ability to understand and learn music theory, come see me!

I have more than 30 years of musical experience. I’ve taught guitar, piano, bass, and theater in private schools, art schools and I’m currently teaching at Classic Axe Guitar Gallery in Gainesville, VA. I’ve taught over 250 students in all levels of experience, tailoring each lesson to fit each student, covering all genres, so that learning their instrument is fun. It’s been exciting to see some of them become music majors, some of them become performers, and some using their skills and gifts to teach others. I love teaching and sharing my musical knowledge with people of ALL ages. I believe anyone can learn music, with the right approach and encouragement. Nothing gives me more pleasure than watching my students accomplish more than they ever dreamed possible.Show More
I teach individual private lessons to students 5 and up on piano and guitar. Each student has their own lesson plan and we tailor lessons to fit the musical interest/genre that you love most. This makes learning fun and easier to meet goals. My students love their lessons almost as much as I love teaching.Show More

Lola is great!She is an excellent guitarist.
Lola has been my guitar teacher off and on over the past 18 years. She has always made understanding easy, fun, and interesting. She has taught me not only how to play but also how to teach so that I can use my passions the way she has! I've never had a more devoted teacher!Show More
Lola is teaching piano to my 8 year old son and 10 year old daughter. She is an excellent teacher: extremely patient and thorough, with a terrific personality.
I am new to the guitar and I have to say Lola is making it an enjoyable experience. She does an exceptional job of explaining steps and pushes the student to progress. I couldn't of asked for a better instructor.
I loved taking guitar lessons with Lola! She's excellent with beginners of all ages. I've seen her coax actual chords out of clueless eight-year-old and empower adults to take the stage for the first time ever. Lola is a wonderful encourager and always easy to work with.Show More
