Hi!
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 9:30 Club, The Howard Theater, Shamrockfest, The Black Cat, Half Street Fairgrounds. 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 musicians. 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.
Thanks!
Sam

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.
