Although it's still early in the teaching schedule with Jason, my first lesson was great. Jason made me feel relaxed even though I was nervous, and the materials that he sent me to practice on bass reinforced the teaching session I had with him

I completed eight lessons with Jason and was very satisfied with the musical lessons received. I learned much about the piano, chords, patterns, and theory. On the eighth lesson I received a guitar tutorial and was very impressed with his playing and teaching. I highly recommend Jason as an instructor for the musical instruments that he teaches.

Marlisa is a very kind, patient and knowledgeable teacher. I took my granddaughter to her for a pottery lesson and she was very happy with Marlisa's teaching, resulting in her being able to throw a bowl on the wheel that she can actually use. I would highly recommend Marlisa as a teacher for students of all ages!

Marlisa is an awesome teacher. I took a pottery class at Glen Echo years ago and was very disappointed, but with Marlisa's excellent teaching skills and enthusiasm for the art, I left her studio feeling like I wanted to buy a wheel and start throwing. I appreciate her hands-on approach and always felt taken care of attended to. Marlisa is a true artist and excellent teacher!!! I highly recommend her.

Marlisa is an excellent teacher! She was patient and kind and very helpful! I went to her house for a pottery lesson a few days ago, and I was very apprehensive going into it, because I tried pottery a few years ago and had a less than satisfactory experience. However, I'm so glad that I did this lesson anyway, because I had so much fun! Marlisa is an excellent and patient teacher, and she first shows you exactly what you need to do, and then helps you with every step as you do it yourself. She gives you the chance to practice, but really knows what she's doing so she can help you correct your mistakes, also. I live in California, but if I lived in the DC area, Marlisa would definitely be my #1 choice for a ceramics teacher!
