Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Guitar has been a passion of mine since I was 15, and I've played in numerous bands. My first guitar teacher was Michael Knust (Fever Tree guitarist) at the Dale Mullins studio in Houston TX. I've also had the opportunity to study with legends such as Bob Brozman. Passing on the lessons I've learned to new students is my way of honoring my teachers.
My emphasis is on technique and theory while keeping the "play" aspect in mind. I'll teach you how to express yourself musically while learning song structure and playing by ear.
I've extensively studied blues guitar as well as classic rock, and I'm equally comfortable with acoustic, electric, rhythm, lead, finger picking, and slide playing. In addition to playing, I can also help you get the tone you want from your instrument with a combination of technique and equipment settings.

About Mark

The most important thing about playing guitar is having fun. Knowing how to play popular songs, jam with other musicians, and create your own songs helps you have the most fun possible. With Covid-19 still a concern, many students (and their parents) prefer video lessons. To make sure you get the

I have a huge passion for teaching and playing guitar. I also teach you a wide variety of music such as rock, metal, blues, etc. This helps you not get stuck with one style of playing. I can teach all ages. I'm very patient and I'll always work at your level, so I won't go too fast for you. I'm dependable and always on time. After studying with me you will have a good understanding of music theory, a complete understanding of the instrument, how to write your own music, and how to play multiple different genres of music.

Students can experience a lesson plan directly formulated towards their own personal interests. This could range from basic guitar fundamentals, which include learning basic chords, scales, reading music, playing different rhythmic patterns and playing beginner level songs. More advanced topics could also be implemented such as, modes, rhythmic syncopation, and harmonic chord progressions. Also, if the student wants to learn how to play their favorite songs this can also be arranged.

I am a beginner guitar player inspiring to become the next Eddie Hazel (Of Funkadelic fame for you unenlightened ones). I was referred to Jeremy by a former music teacher at Anne Arundel Community College. I was able to set up a weekly time with him at his house. He has a very clean and professional setting. I have been taking lessons under Jeremy's tutelage for a few months now. I have to say I am surprised at my own progress. My technical skills are blossoming but it's the music theory that is the real gift that Jeremy has given me. I always shrugged theory off thinking if I can hear it, I can play it. But now I am beginning to see the doors that music theory can open. Music is a vast universe and I have to give him credit for opening my ears, eyes, and mind to the possibilities of soooouuunds.

Hello! I have been teaching guitar for over 7 years now. Form beginners to advanced students I make it my duty to find the students interests and help them develop their own sound. As a Berklee College of Music graduate I have studied composition and music production, skills that I am happy to teach any student. In addition to teaching guitar my students have the option to learn music theory, as well as recording and mixing original compositions that we develop together in class and as homework assignments (DAWs - Logic & Protools). My specialities include Blues, Classic Rock, Jazz & electronic beat production.

He's a good guy.
I'm not young, and I'm hard to teach music theory to, but he was patient, and is helping me figure a way into learning important stuff that I find kinda dry and not fun to practice. (I'm a good player, but music theory is very challenging to me.)

My daughter enjoyed the first lesson very much! Looking forward to more!

"Cant speak highly enough about Adam. I felt he went above and beyond for a guitar teacher. He challenged me to perform at an open mic fairly early (I couldnt play a full song before starting lessons) and took his own time to come support me. He teaches piano too and has a great understanding of music theory. This was big for me as music theory is fascinating to me. Our lessons were very relaxed and always left me excited to get home and practice more. My interest in guitar is fairly schizophrenic and I like to change focus all the time to cover as much ground in our precious weekly hour. Adam did a great job working with my idiosyncrasies and taught me a great amount in the few months we had lessons. (I moved out of town)"

Within a matter of days James had me learning a simple way to learn to play a song for my girlfriend as a birthday gift. And now I'm hooked on learning to play better and grow as a guitarist. He breaks down the foundation for how to learn the guitar and what is needed to practice. James is your teacher if you're looking to learn as a beginner or wanting to advance your skill set."
