About Jason
I have been playing guitar for over 20 years. I was blessed to have a great instructor who motivated me and provided me with a great foundation to build upon. I would like to be able to pay it forward and do the same for you. I studied music at UMBC, and I received certifications in audio production and recording techniques from the Omega Studios School of Recording Arts and Sciences. Along the way, I have learned how to play many other instruments and sing. I have worked with many great musicians over the years, been in several bands, recorded professionally in several studios, and performed
in numerous venues around the DC, Baltimore and Annapolis, as well as Nashville. I worked in musical instrument sales for 4 years, so I have a vast knowledge of musical gear, and would like to share that knowledge with you. My current passion is to put my knowledge and experiences to use in guiding students to learn everything they will need to know to become the musician they aspire to be.

Jason was a very good instructor. He is patient and very easy to work with. I get frustrated easily, but he kept me motivated and I really enjoyed playing guitar more after our lessons together.

About Natalie
I have over 35 years of experience in the music field, teaching Piano, Voice, and Music History. I am originally from Kiev, Ukraine; therefore, my style of teaching is quite different from the ordinary piano teacher. I incorporate many wonderful and time-proven techniques and styles from my rich Russian background.

Music is my life's passion and I enjoy educating students on the proper techniques and encouraging their love of music. My goal is to create love and passion through music, and to develop imagination, expression, confidence, discipline, and patience in my students. I believe
that learning to play music should be as much fun as listening to it.

My schedule is flexible. I am available both during the day and evening. Weekend lessons are also available.

About Kyle
Hello,

I've been teaching electric and upright bass lessons since 2013 after graduating from the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts as a double major in upright bass and tuba. I am flexible with my teaching methods because all students learn differently, and many want to play in more than one genre (and that's great)! I am comfortable teaching all genres and I also offer music theory lessons for middle school aged students and above. I am available for online lessons via Skype but prefer in person lessons to better analyze students' playing and learning style. I hope to see you soon!

Gen
uinely,
Kyle

About Carlos
i have been playing guitar for a little over 10 years now and strive to teach.
through my journey learning ive gone through several challenges and struggles, especially when it came to my writing and composition skills. on the side of teaching i play in a melodic death metal band and have a strong focus on my riff writing and rhythm approach. before playing in a band i used to play neo-classical styles of composers like Jason becker,marty friedman, Guthrie govan, steve vai, and yngwie melmsteen. lessons will be challenging and set to the level of experience that you have so that you may advan
ce efficiently.
