About Lena

GUITAR CURRICULUM (VOCAL INSTRUCTION CURRICULUM SEE BELOW): You like music. I like music. You want to learn how to play guitar. I can teach you how to play guitar, and so much more. It's that simple. I have real-world experience in getting out there and playing guitar in a band, in front of a

I decided to write an updated review after roughly a year of lessons. I feel fortunate to have connected with Lena as she has exactly the balance of skills I needed for my musical goals. Having an instructor that has performed live, that understands the realities of being on a stage, and can still give you all of the detailed work needed to improve vocals, songwriting, instrumentation... I really don't think you can go wrong here. You don't have to play live to get the benefit, but finding someone who can guide you through both music and performance was not an easy search. 5/5 rating from me.
Katie V.
Lena is great! Very patient and encouraging. I always look forward to having lessons with her.
Kristen
I can't express just how glad I am that I found Lena two years ago when my sons wanted to learn how to play the guitar. Her approach is perfect and makes them love learning and playing. They're also learning how to perform (playing and singing) on-stage, which has so many added benefits, musically and personally. I can't imagine there's a better teacher and experience around.

Private 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

Elizabeth
Scott is a *fantastic* teacher! My 10 year-old daughter has been taking lessons with him for a year now and her progress has been amazing. She learns how to the play the music she likes, so I never have to push her to practice, and she looks forward to lessons every week. Scott is really great with kids -- patient, encouraging, friendly, and fun. He's very flexible with scheduling, too. I highly recommend him!

Guitar lessons in all styles- Blues, Bluegrass, Classical, Rock, Jazz and everything else under the sun. #1 concern is helping YOU play the way you want to- whether that is shred Metal, accompanying your voice with chords, or playing solo Classical guitar, I want you to leave these lessons ready to explore your own musical world. Currently a graduate student at the University of Georgia, I have a deep background in music theory and classical guitar technique, but growing up I primarily played Bluegrass and Blues music, and continue to do so. Because of these broad influences, I try to include fun and helpful elements of each style to give my students a deeper understanding of the instrument.

It's been a great experience taking lessons from Dennis. He is clearly very knowledgeable about the subject matter, and is very patient and clear in his teaching instructions. He also takes the time to explain the theory behind the instructions and strives to keep every session interesting and fun.

I teach music lessons starting with and building upon basic techniques-including proper hand position, reading music, counting rhythms, maintaining a steady beat, and for wind instruments-proper breathing technique, embouchure, etc. I think it is important to establish these foundations and build upon them to keep music frustration-free and joyful. I enjoy playing along with and modeling the playing of my instrument so that students can hear and strive toward producing a good sound.
