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

So far only taken one lesson, but I really enjoyed her energy and enthusiasm, and I loved that her classes have structure and homework and focus! Really looking forward to more lessons :)
Lyle
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.

Clay
My experience with McCann was definitely one that shaped my guitar skills in such an impactful way. When I first considering starting I was skeptical about whether or not I would have time or the money but Mr.Turner really took me by surprise. I was able to fully comprehend the basics of the Acoustic Guitar while also having time for for my full time job at planet fitness. At this point I am not confident in myself to play in front of others as I was very shy before. Thanks to McCann Turner I am now at a place in my life where I wanted to be.

Great learning experience with Eric.

I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar.

"Out of all of the music lessons and music instructors that I ever had, Tom was by far my favorite. Never did a lesson seem boring or monotonous. He knows a wide variety of genres and music styles, and shows incredible passion to Music itself . Some instructors just teach you how to play an instrument, but Tom does more than that, by teaching music theory you not only have the ability to play music, but to understand and even write it as well. I am very grateful for being able to have had him as my guitar instructor and would definitely recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning and playing music."

"Guys and Gals, If you or your kids are looking for a great teacher. You have come to the right place. He makes learning fun with his great personality and a giant variety of fun techniques to have you playing the guitar very quickly. When I started with him I really never picked up a guitar. Now I am playing live gigs with my own band and writing my own music. I just recently started singing lessons. I have my first one coming up on Wednesday. If they are anything like learning the guitar with Paul. I can't wait! Thanks Paul, You really have changed the way I listen and now play music!!"

Guitar for Kids: How to Help Your Child Love the Guitar

Many parents aren't sure how to best support their child in learning a new instrument. Guitar teacher Dylan P. shares his tips for parents to encourage their children to fall in love with the guitar... You can’t teach a child to love the guitar. You can lead them there, but they have to find it themselves. For a kid, guitar is a hard instrument to play. They have to dig their fingers into steel strings, make indents, and get calluses. They have to understand that each note has a letter, …
