Music should be fun, but just like anything, we must learn the techniques to become proficient. My goal is to help not only students learn to play the guitar, but also offer correlate it to other parts of their lives to enhance understanding.

About Joshua
I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education.

Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments.

The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons. I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too.

I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Cum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band.

Through my healing journey, I've developed patience, insight, and understanding for my students' learning processes.

I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

In search of helping our 10 year old son build some self-confidence we sought out clarinet lessons this summer. He started playing in school last year, and it was something our reluctant son liked "enough" to want to build up some competency. Joshua has been amazing! He finds just the right amount of challenge to encourage my son to practice, but not get discouraged. My son looks forward to his lesson each week and told me that he isn't even sure he wants to switch to saxophone next year because he is having so much fun playing the clarinet. Joshua is amazing with children, and has spent time getting to know our kiddo and find out what will work best for him. Patient, calm, and inspiring--very talented instructor.

Joshua Blatman is a fantastic music teacher. He has a great resume, is experienced in a variety of instruments, and a solid background in teaching.
I think any kids lucky enough to learn music from Joshua will have fun and hopefully fall in love with learning it, just like my kids have.

I whole-heartedly recommend Joshua for anyone of any age and any skill level who wants to enrich their life learning guitar. I appreciate the fact that he makes the time and has the patience to adapt to my needs. Joshua is flexible in scheduling - especially for those unforeseen incidents - which is appreciated.

Being an adult beginner with music lessons, Joshua eases my frustration on immediately wanting to play perfect notes and chords. I look forward to continuing lessons.

I'm now offering beginner to intermediate guitar lessons. What's a beginner? You have no knowledge or experience playing. What's intermediate? You have limited knowledge and/or are familiar w/ some chord names/shapes. You can play a song or two; or can keep up with a song.

I follow a structured way of learning guitar based on a guitar course I've created; and I customize the lessons according to the student's needs and wants. Whether you want to play in a band; play 2 songs; or just relax and have fun - your personalized lessons will help you achieve that goal.

Learn everything about how the guitar works while learning how to play and write songs. We'll have tons of ways to develop your rhythm, finger strength and flexibility.

Lessons feature various styles of music, appropriate for all ages: blues, rock, pop, country, folk , jazz, funk, latin and reggae. Even though I can teach multiple genres; if you want to focus on one type or certain artists, we can definitely do ...

About Rachel
I started playing guitar and singing when I was 13 when I got a Christmas present from my father. Learning covers for a few years, I eventually started writing my own music around age 16. I also competed in talent shows and sang at church during high school. When I was 18, my friends and I started a jam band.

Went through a couple drummers then went our separate ways not even a year in. Since then, I’ve been playing as a solo musician but also playing in worship bands. I also have had opportunities to duet with people live sporadically. From 2011-2012, I recorded an album entitled “Wouldlawn, Couldlawn, Shouldlawn.” I named it that because I lived in an area called Woodlawn and my dad used to say the album’s title as a joke.

This was all in my spare time, I was a waitress since age 19. I didn’t start playing music full time until
late 2013. Playing mostly in small bars, coffeehouses, and private events/parties. And in August 2016, I started teaching guitar. Took a total break from playing music.

To get back into the groove of things, I started my own by doing online concerts. I also started recording music videos for and doing social media lives. I still love to record and working on finishing an album.

I still teach guitar and I’m blessed to be playing in the worship band at The Cause Church in Elkridge, MD. My style is indie folk; and I play a mix of originals and covers. My main singing influences are Gwen Stefani, Karen O from The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Fiona Apple. My main music influences are Death Cab for Cutie, The White Stripes & Modest Mouse.

I tailor my lessons to meet student goals. I help students learn basic chords and strumming patterns, learn to sing while playing, understand how to read notes, tabs and chord charts, understand power chords and basic music theory, play popular songs of the past or present, learn basic scales and improvisation skills, and even write their own songs! You can search my music on Spotify or iTunes for a sample of my style. My album is called "Songs from Pablo's Attic."

About Peter

About Chris M.

I've played guitar for 17 years. I've played in punk bands, ska bands, jazz bands, and as support for singer-songwriters. My training covers a variety of styles, like rock, jazz, pop, funk, samba, bossa nova, mariachi, to name a few.

I'll teach you to read music and play by ear. You'll also learn music theory, scales, etc., everything a well-rounded musician ought to know.

About Chris
I've been playing music for most of my life. Music is what I do full time, supporting myself, my wife, and my three children. It would be easiest to explain my musical life with a timeline:

Age 9 - piano, drums
Age 10 - cello
Age 12 - guitar, bass guitar
Age 16 - harmonica, mandolin
Age 17 - upright bass
Age 19 - ukulele
Age 21 - baroque cello
Age 22 - baroque violone
Age 24 - Banjo, Renaissance lute

I studied cello performance at three different schools (USF, BYU-Idaho, and BYU). I then switched majors, and studied commercial music at BYU. There I studied sound recording, songwriting, orchestration, film scoring, and jazz. I also played the upright bass and bass guitar with their top jazz ensemble, Synthesis.

Today, I do a mix of several different things - studio recording, performing (piano, bass and cello), arranging,
songwriting, and teaching. I've got experience in all kinds of styles - classical, rock, pop, jazz, Latin, singer-songwriter - and I'd love to pass some knowledge and skills on to you!

I believe understanding music theory and history are the keys to a great musician.

Knowing the right musicians and bands to look up that will help drive every student to wanting to become great.

Finally... I believe anyone can play an instrument, but not everyone can write music, and that is what I aim to teach.

About Sam
Being an 8 year old kid with a strong passion for music. I was able to pick up on the basics of music that can be understood and well grasped by an 8 year old.

I grow up on the classics and i studied every guitar solo and riff. I wanted to be able to perform the same way those guys did. And i did just that 4 years later when i was 12.

I want to share with students that same vibe and feeling i had when i was a beginner.
