Our music lesson students will have the opportunity to take lessons from the comfort of their own home or in one of the teachers studios. Careful attention is placed on each student to ensure a custom lesson plan. Our music teachers understand that every student has different needs and abilities and therefore the lessons will be planned with that knowledge in mind.
lessons are available in the following areas:
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar
Teaching Methods: My approach varies depending on the student's skill level and chosen instrument, but for beginners I always try to get them familiarized with their instrument: teaching them the basics of reading music and how to navigate the different keys (or strings, etc.). From there I start teaching various musical concepts, the rudiments of music theory, and begin introducing them to different styles of music. When the student is advanced enough, I start having them run through my own custom designed technique and skill drills, and have them start selecting music that they would like to perform on their own. Once the student is comfortable with solo play, I gear lessons towards learning how to play in a group, soloing and improv, songwriting, forming a band, and making your own album. I use a combination of standard techinique manuals and my own teaching material that I feel covers some of the holes left by the books that are out on the market.
Teaching Styles: The most satisfying moment as a teacher is when a student finally "gets it", and for students, I find that lessons are the most fun when the student feels capable and not overwhelmed. I like to challenge my students and encourage them to exceed even their own expectations of their abilities. With this in mind, my overall teaching philosophy emphasizes gaining technical mastery over the student's chosen instrument, strong music reading and theory skills, along with creativity and improvisation to turn them into well rounded players who can hold their own in just about any music setting from the stage to the studio.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar, Synthesizer, Accordion, Harmonica, Lap Steel Guitar, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion
Teaching Methods: As far as books go, I prefer the Hal Leonard method, especially for beginner musicians. I combine visual, audio and kinesthetic learning methods to tailor to anyone's needs. After the basics are taught or they're already learned, I assess the student's level and teach the student what they wish to learn to the best of my ability.

Instruments: Piano, Voice
I am a seasoned teacher of over 20 years. I've taught both in public school and privately. I teach students of all ages and levels. I have a solid classical background but am well rounded in using a variety of styles to enhance students' enjoyment, learning, and appreciation of music. My personal pleasure is in church music, musical theatre, and jazz. I design lessons to meet students needs and goals. With a specialty in vocal health I can help voice students solve vocal problems and learn correct mechanics in singing to create the most confidence and beauty in singing. I offer extras to my students in the way of master classes and recitals to enhance their experience.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice
I have been teaching music theory and musicianship at Johns Hopkins University since 2007. I have also previously taught at Towson University and the University of Arkansas. I have taught private lessons in guitar, piano, composition, music theory, and musical arrangements off and on for the past 16 years. I encourage students to seek out and explore music that they enjoy and wish to master. I have taught students of all ages and can cater to each individual's needs. I look forward to helping you discover your musical talents!
Instruments: Guitar, Voice, Bass Guitar, Double Bass
I started teaching bass privately and at various music schools while I was a student at George Mason University in 2007. When I moved to Denton, Texas, I taught kids ages 7-18 voice, bass, piano, and ensembles at School of Rock in Southlake, Texas. I have been teaching voice, bass, guitar, and ensembles at School of Rock in Columbia, Maryland for the past year. Throughout my time as an instructor, I have learned how to work with many different kinds of students, from the casual musician to those preparing for college auditions. I am a member of NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing).

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
