Guitar · In studio
I never imagined a beginner guitar class to be so comprehensive, challenging and yet so much fun. There's a lot to learn about playing the guitar from holding it to learning how to read music to playing a tune. Scott's easy going style encourages even the most slothful students like myself. We do it all in 1 and a half hours twice a week. His students have a wide range of experience with music and the guitar but at each session Scott is able to ensure that each one of us gets something out of the class. For example, he'll instruct the advanced students to play a more complicated version of a piece. Or he'll touch base with every student in the class at least twice by physically walking over and showing them something, asking a question, checking on their guitar, etc. Finally, he has those qualities that make for outstanding teachers - he not only knows and loves his work but he's really good at it. So each session is a fun mini concert lesson.

I've been taking lessons for about a month now and I have learned so much. Not only basics on the instrument but also music theory which I've always had problems with before. Each lesson is a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I look forward to my lessons each week.

Scott is easy-going, patient and seems to know what is needed for the stage of instruction that I am at. I highly recommend Scott as an instructor. He has helped me with the ukulele tremendously in just four lessons. Couldn't ask for a better instructor.

Being a professional singer, I am looking quite a bit from Scott of what I call all around vocal performance and training. He is supportive and encouraging and has years of knowledge under his belt.

If you want someone who knows his stuff, work with him.
Andrew T. College Park, MD

About Andrew

Musically and personally, I strongly feel that diversity and openness are key in a person's development: when we move outside of our comfort zone and embrace the unknown, we are better able to grow as musicians (and human beings). As a performer, I feel that performing with musicians of different backgrounds is a constant source of inspiration and engaging music. As an educator, I emphasize the role of music as a form of expression and its parallel to verbal language. As children, we learn words and sentences so that we can accurately and gracefully express ourselves and, in this sense, music is no different. I encourage students to enjoy the music-making process and to view mechanics as a means to an end. I have been dedicated to the drums since the age of 9 and since then I have been

Great Experience

From the first lesson, Andrew has been a consummate professional. Each lesson he brings in something new, while making sure that everything we've covered in the past is still ingrained through repetition. Having Andrew as an instructor has opened my eyes to the many facets of drumming, and I have taken skills/techniques with me that will last forever. The feedback does not stop after each lesson, Andrew is available all the time for any questions I may have during the week if I am stumped while practicing. His schedule is flexible with mine, and he is willing to bring in music that I want to personally learn. The lessons are the right balance of fun and teaching, and his studio promotes a learning environment that is not intimidating to let loose if you're a beginner like me.

I'd recommend Andrew to anyone looking to expand their skill set, the lessons have been a great experience.

Excellent

I am an adult learner new to music lessons, and so was very anxious during my first violin session with Raycurt. I can't say enough about his professionalism and easy teaching style. We spoke prior to the meeting, and he told me what I needed to get started. More impressive, he showed up during a snowstorm! I highly recommend him.

Priscilla has worked with my daughter over several weeks of beginner guitar lessons. These were in our home. She was always on time. When a cancellation was necessary due to weather, she reached out ahead of time to let us know.

As a teacher, she is wonderful with kids. My daughter (7 years old) has enjoyed every minute of every lesson, coming away very happy after each lesson. Priscilla is very enthusiastic, arrives with a very uplifting attitude for every lesson, knows how to talk to kids, knows how to give them positive reinforcement and motivate them. She left helpful homework notes after each lesson. I highly recommend her.

Priscilla is the most rude and insolent person , I ever met. I registered my daughter with her for 5 lessons. First she did not bother to call me like I was told so that we can discuss my expectations for my Daughter. The only time she did call after one week, it was just to let me know that she cannot do Saturday anymore, while I was told that she can do Saturdays. The day of the first lessons, she left me outside in the cold weather, while I was trying to find her house.
After the lesson, I forgot my cell phone there, for 2 hours, she did not bother to call me at my house number to let me know that I left my phone and when I can get it back. When I realize that I may have left my phone there, I call her, the first time her phone rang for 3 times and it went to the voicemail, the second time it went straight to voicemail, so she must have turn it off. My husband went there, texted her, called her so may times she did not open the door.
The worst thing is she unlocked my phone and called my husband, after I have sent her an email that I will report her for confiscating my property. I don`t know how she unlock my phone and what she did with my phone for the 4 hours she spent with it.
This is the worst experience I ever have. she is disrespectful, dishonest and very rude.
I will not recommend her to anybody.

About Joshua

I am a recent graduate of the University of Maryland, majoring in Criminal Justice. I am looking primarily for violin students, but am more than happy to assist with English tutoring as well (I scored a 730 on the writing section of the SAT and a 680 on the Reading section). I have played violin for approximately 16-17 years and was a member of the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestra from 8th-12th grade, eventually touring Vienna and Prague with the orchestra in Summer 2009. I have taught private lessons for the past two summers and have previously worked with children as a camp counselor. I look forward to tutoring your child and helping them realize their full potential! Josh
