Guitar lessons are tailored to the individual student. Young children I teach music fundamentals and reading along with chords and popular music. Adults are goal oriented and generally know what they want to play.

I would love to teach some contemporary Christian music!

Excellent teacher. Teaches very well and is very understandable and explains the lesson plan very well.
Gabriel
Such a wonderful experience. My son Gabriel was so excited and loved his lesson. He came home and started practicing right away. Karen was so patient and an excellent teacher.
Sophia
I lived how casual Karen was and how fun she made it for Sophia. Mistakes were met with laughter and correction not recrimination. Perfect for Sophia’s style of learning

I teach all levels of guitar in the areas of rock, blues and jazz, but I really focus more on the musical skills need to play guitar in any style. These include a thorough chord vocabulary, experience playing rhythm guitar, and a complete progressive study of scales and their use in improvisation (lead guitar) starting with pentatonic scales and progressing to major scales, different forms of minor scales and modes. All scales are learned in multiple positions and the student learns to perform with them in any key. In every lesson the student and I play exercises and study materials together to make actual music from the materials being studied.

About Dennis

I have been teaching guitar for 25 years in the Washington DC metro area. I work with students 12 years of age and up, but I am especially experienced at teaching adult students regardless of whether they are beginners or have previous guitar experience. I have performed in acoustic Celtic, new age

Dennis has been a wonderful guitar teacher and mentor for me over the last 18 months or so. I am in my mid-50s and was starting essentially as a beginner when I signed up to work with Dennis. Thanks to Dennis' patient and individualized approach, I have made great strides and am pleased with how I have progressed. While he is a very accomplished guitarist, he is also a very experienced teacher. Dennis' teaching approach is not to ask the student to follow a rigid learning plan or replicate the journey he took to mastering the guitar, but rather focuses on tailoring the lessons to the student's abilities, musical interests, time constraints, learning modes, etc. The bottom line is that I enjoy working with Dennis each week and practicing what he has taught me.

The pandemic has obviously thrown a big wrench into the giving of guitar lessons. Before, Dennis was teaching me at his house. We now meet online using the Takelessons platform. Online lessons took some getting used to and are clearly not optimal, but I think Dennis has become more and more adept at making it work as well as possible.

I heartily recommend Dennis as a guitar teacher.

Dennis is easygoing and great to work with.

This was my first ever guitar lesson and I thought it was a blast. The instructor took the time to explain best practices and why they were so important. I also really enjoyed seeing the instructor's passion for the guitar and that passion made the whole experience even better!

I love teaching people how to play songs they enjoy! I'm not too focused on music theory, but am more interested on giving you the tools to play your favorite songs! Playing guitar doesn't have to be difficult or boring. Whether you want to play the Beatles on an acoustic guitar, learn your favorite Metallica riffs or even learn the basics to play at church...I'm your teacher!

"If I could give 4.5 stars I would, the only reason it's not 5 stars is because I think nobody is perfect, but David is very close to it. I really liked how patient David was with Eli and his deep knowledge of music was very impressive. David is able to prevent things in a number of different ways and he makes sure that you understand that material very well."

"Jeff is a Patient with his students and a Skillful Master on Guitar

Along with Jeff helping me learn the guitar one chord and note at a time, he also became a true friend. Jeff's musical talents and abilities are God given but the best part about his teaching is you know he sincerely cares about your success as a guitarist and human being! I would highly recommend Jeff Stetson as your choice of Guitar Teachers, Phenomenal Guitarist and Human Being who has stayed true to his Art!!!
