I'm a recent graduate of Berklee College of music where I majored in professional music. This included music theory and guitar instruction, as well as reading and writing music notation and charts in different styles. I also play frequently around the DC area, including shows at The Howard Theater, Shamrockfest, The Black Cat, The Bullpen at Nats Park and Gaylord National resort.
For the past three years I have been teaching guitar lessons to student of all ages, with excellent results! I always keep the students interested by teaching songs they are excited to learn, while also making sure that they continue to grow as a guitarist and musician. Lessons can be in Rock, Jazz, or Pop styles, and on acoustic or electric guitar. Music theory is included to the extent that the student and/or parents are interested. Lessons can be at my house or yours (I live in Highland Stone off Falls Road).

· Guitar · In studio Sam has been awesome. He's very patient and encouraging, which fosters a great learning environment. It's also pretty clear that he's an experienced and knowledgable musician. I've learned quite a bit in my short time taking lessons with Sam, and I look forward to seeing how much I can progress. Good experience, all around.
