Andrew is a fantastic teacher - patient, very knowledgeable and professional. I was shocked by how quickly I was able to progress from a complete beginner to being able to play full pieces. I was nervous but Andrew put my mind at ease and have me confidence with the instrument. He’s very attentive to students needs. Can’t recommend enough!

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

About David

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playin

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of piano and guitar skills. I typically use Alfred's Basic books: lesson, technic, and theory books. I also provide students with homework sheet that explains what we have been focusing on, what they have achieved, and what is the expectation for next lesson.

Only had one singing lesson so far, but Andrea has been so great and made me feel at ease right away, even though I am a complete beginner. I feel like I've already learned so much in just one lesson! I am very excited to continue my singing lessons with her. She is very nice and easy to work with.

Guitar lessons, or any music lessons, are about sound and understanding it in a way that is comfortable and fun for the student so that they can apply it as they wish. I don't force students to learn how to read music, in fact, I let them choose the lesson and only guide them if the lessons are not getting slowly but surely harder and more challenging in more than one way. The principle goal is for the student to understand sound, how it can work by moving your hand or just one finger, the difference that can make to the sound, and again, how to apply that sound in a musical context. This applies to both chords, lines, harmony and melody, the works. I teach Jazz Guitar Primarily, but have been playing over 15 years (guitar) and 23 years (piano). I have a wealth of knowledge of theory which I do believe to be extremely valuable, but only after the student is able to comprehend the sounds they are playing, and, of course, if they have questions. I believe lessons are an exchange ...

"Luke is a wonderful guitar teacher for our 7 yr old. He has managed to keep her engaged and show her how to have fun with the guitar. Our daughter really wanted to learn but was very frustrated and disengaged with her previous teacher. Luke teaches her songs that she typically listens to, has introduced her to new music and is able to connect with her at her level. Even since COVID 19 and having to switch to Zoom lessons, they haven’t missed a beat. We see her growing and becoming more confident each week. We are so grateful to Luke for all that he has done!"

How to Simplify Your Live Guitar Rig for Performances

Playing the guitar is such a fantastic experience. It’s so relieving to be on stage or in your designated practice space and just wail on your instrument. However, one of the difficulties of being a guitar player is deciding what gear is needed for live performances. We often get trapped in thinking that we must have the biggest and loudest guitar rig for shows, accompanied by a pedalboard equipped with 30+ pedals. Don’t get me wrong, there is something extremely satisfying about plugging in …
