I have been taking lessons from Michael for about 9 months, and it has been one of the best experiences I have ever had. He is an excellent guitar player, and instructor. He is patient, thorough, and very willing to pace his instruction with the ability of the student. I am in my late 50's and he is just the person I had hoped for in a teacher. I consider going to lesson not a chore, but a pleasure.

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

Great teacher I have two granddaughters that wanted to learn to play our family piano. Ashley has been great keeping these two (5yr old and 9yr old) interested and enjoying what they are learning.

Bebe is a fun person and Talented Teacher, Bebe knows how to takes the stress from the student and gives them the tools they need to succeed. I love going to Bebe's location and having my daughter get that one on one with her. My daughter was scared to have lesson because she was worried about being judged and Bebe helps them get over that. My daughter thought she was an Alto because everyone would tell her that. But as soon as she started going to Bebe she told her she was not she has more range then that and she is a Mezzo-Soprano. If you want a teacher who is friendly and supporting you need Bebe.. Thank you Bebe for everything you do...

Once we learn how to read, nothing can stop us from playing! After that it all depends on what you want to do with your guitar. Classical guitar is a gate to all music genres and music theory will definitely bring your level higher + it gives you confidence.
-Also as a performance major musician, I have the ability to play the techniques I teach and simply explain how it is done in today's guitar world.

"Joe is an excellent teacher

I have been studying for more than a year. Joe is extremely versatile and is able to teach any style of music. He emphasizes spending short periods of time each practice session doing exercises that strengthen your fingers by playing chords up and down the fretboard, but does'nt go overboard with repetitive drills. He has genuine love of music and is great iat intertwining theory with actual songs. I have enjoyed my lessons and highly recommend him for students begining to play as well as advanced students."

"My 10 year old son has been taking guitar lessons with Raymond for nearly a year. He's steadily learning from Raymond's patient, encouraging, methodical teaching style. Raymond was able to note when my son was not reading the music.and took the necessary steps to slow him down and teach him properly. I really appreciate Raymond's pedagogical insights. Because of his knowledge of the learning process and his lifetime experience of making music, Raymond is the best guitar teacher we've encountered! My wife choose him from hundreds of teacher from takelesson. We are glade that he agree to teach my son."

"Dave is both a musician and professional educator, which made him a great guitar teacher for 2 of my daughters, between the ages of 6 and 12. He provided each of them with a binder organized by tabs to hold the songs, theory and notes he brought to each week's lesson. Dave asked the girls about their musical tastes so he could develop lesson plans that held their interest. He is reliable and arrived on time each week. I was so impressed with Dave as a guitar teacher that I recommended him to our local school's after school enrichment program, and I would recommend him for in-home lessons as well."

"My son is 7 years of age and has never received any music lessons. I bought him a guitar for his birthday and he was just happy to play with it without any guitar lessons. I convinced him otherwise. I did not know what to expect from Glenn. I knew about him because he was highly recommended in our Long Beach neighborhood. I signed my son up and after a few minutes of being with Glenn, my son was hooked. He came away from his first 30 minute session saying, “wow…I did not know I could play the guitar!”. My son was so excited. As a parent…that is very exciting! I was sold! I was amazed how he was able to pick up what Glenn taught him within that first lesson. Glenn made it fun. The atmosphere was very relaxed and his style of teaching clicked with my son right away. After basically 12 sessions, my son was able to perform at a musical recital Glenn hosted for his students. Not only was I proud of my son, I also got to see kids of all ages and adults performing that day and it was pretty impressive. Overall, I highly recommend Glenn. He is able to keep my 7 year old boy focused and teaches him effectively while making it fun!"

HIGHLY recommend anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar in the convenience of their own home."
