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.

Lena is great! Very patient and encouraging. I always look forward to having lessons with her.

Whether you just want to sing a song at the campfire, or stand on stage in platform heels blowing fireballs, learning to understand the theory behind the music, will enable you to fulfill that dream. The guitar fingerboard is full of shapes, and there are a lot of complicated ways to learn them. Let's learn some easy ones that do the same job, and allow your creativity to shine.

Scotty is a excellent teacher.
I've been learning bass from him and he is very knowledgeable in everything from the history of music, theory, techniques and much more.

overall good teacher

I've been taking lessons from Scotty for over a year and have learned a lot about theory, form, and style. Had taken lessons from other instructors and felt that I should had been further along after 1 year. One hour lesson time is perfect for me and I always leave wishing I had more time.

Great Teacher

Great teacher takes time to cover theory of music, and does hour lessons unlike most teachers in town who do 30min lessons. Have taken lessons from other teachers in the past, and all they do is teach you songs without explaining the reasoning behind it. Have learned more in the last few months then I’ve learn in years with other teachers.

"My two boys ages 8 and 11 recently started taking guitar lessons with Jordan. He has the blessing of patience and they just think he is super cool/hip! He arrives on time and gets straight to work. He is easy to work with on scheduling of lessons and is flexible when summer vacations arise. I am amazed at how excited they are about their lessons and how much they've already learned. I would definitely recommend Jordan!"

"Paul is a teacher who really cares about the progress of his students. In our first few meetings, he introduced me to different chords step by step and doesn't give too much all at once which helped me remember each chord easily. When I play he also corrects what I’m doing wrong by showing me techniques that will get me playing better. His lessons are also fun as he always incorporates different types of songs for each lesson. I've only been meeting with him for 2 months and I am already seeing some improvement in my guitar playing. At the same time, I’m also enjoying the process of learning! I highly recommend taking Paul’s lessons for all levels!"

Guitar Playing Tips | Eliminating Bad Habits & Reducing Injury

As far as guitar playing tips go, understanding proper form should be at the top of the list! Here, North Wales, PA guitar teacher Nathan D. shares the basics...   As a multi-instrumental musician, I am constantly checking my form to prevent strain or injury. Hours of improperly played guitar, piano, violin, and even clarinet can make one's fingers and elbows throb, and the impact of playing drums too hard with poor form can cause major injury to wrists all the way to your shoulders. …
