Want to play your favorite songs? Interested in learning to write and record your own music? Wish you knew more music theory and technique? Would you like to improvise and be creative with music? Or maybe you're not sure what you want but you're looking for a fun and rewarding teacher.

No matter what your goals are, I can get you there!

I will help you build a solid foundation of music theory and technique while tailoring to your personal tastes and goals. We will learn how different songs and genres work, and why. We will learn how to write our own music, and record it, if you're interested. We will learn the music that you want to learn, as well as the deeper structures which connect all music together.

I have 5 years of experience, 20+ years of experience playing music, and a degree in Music and Cognitive Science from the University of Virginia. I have taught students from age 6 to 66, in all styles, and all ability levels. Send me a message to see if we will be a good fit!

Like many people in my age group (60+) I took lessons as a child and gave them up to career, kids, etc, and now I have the time to play again! Colin is great to work with, he was good at gauging where I am in my piano journey and listening carefully to tailor his lessons to my needs. He gives me as much theory as I can handle or want and is really good and patient when I don't understand. I give him top marks as a teacher!
Oscar
Colin is a great teacher. I learned to play guitar in middle and high school and hadn't taken a lesson in over 30 years. When I realized I wanted to try lessons again, I found Colin.

He's fun to connect with, relaxed and friendly. He's focused on my goals (learning campfire favorites, classical pieces, finger style, and jazz). And he gives great feedback and constructive tips to keep improving.

Highly recommend!
Julia
Colin has been awesome. Our son is taking lessons for 1.5 years now, mostly online. That's hard enough itself, but Colin managed to teach him amazing songs on the guitar. He is very skilled in all sorts of instruments and has an unique sense of humor and discipline to connect to his students. If you're looking for a great teacher, he's your man.

I am an experienced musician and performer with a variety of teaching skills gained over 20 years of study and action. Lessons in my studio are about so much more than just learning to sing a song or write music. Students are instilled with business knowledge, work ethic, and confidence so that they can truly accomplish whatever they set their minds to. We go deep and focus on how to develop new mental and physical habits that can help the student better express his/herself. We work hard on a curriculum that is specifically catered to the student's needs, and of course, is fun too!

I've worked with students from ages 6-65, with varying backgrounds and interests. From complete beginners to professional performing artists. All students are guaranteed to see improvement in their technical skills within the first month of lessons. Let's do this!

Singing classes for me are a great experience and I enjoy classes a lot. I always look forward to lessons and practice. Classes are always convenient with online. If there were more than 5 stars, Jameson would get them!
Kabir J.
i was definitely nervous coming into a singing lesson and was scared to sing in front of anyone, but Jameson is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor who makes you feel very comfortable to talk to and to sing to during the lesson. he gives very useful feedback which you can take with you and practice to improve a lot. I learned so much from him and he really adapted his teaching to what I wanted out of my singing experience in terms of the style of the song. I would highly recommend Jameson as a singing instructor.

Justin is teaching me music just not how to play the ukulele. Really appreciate his individual approach which incorporates my learning style. When needed, Justin picks up when I need a change of strategy. I am a very very beginner and have learned so much so far.
Isaiah H.
I "shopped around" for a great teacher on this site.

For many new lesson takers, not only do you have no clue about your instrument, you aren't even sure what makes a great teacher!

So here are some things to look out for in a first lesson:

Your teacher should be personable and interested in your musical experience and taste. Ask them what they like! You might hear something you want to learn.

If you mention some level of experience, they will ask you to play something you either know or have been working on. This is important!

Then, preferably, they will ask why you have chosen your instrument and what you want to be able to do with it (i.e. do you want to play in a band, or just play your favorite songs for your family gatherings).

All of this allows you to relax and not worry too much about performing too much during your first lesson.

More importantly, it gives the instructor a clear path on how to work with YOU. The more they know about your current level, the better your experience and learning progress will be.

For absolute beginners, I would hope that they have a simple melody for you to learn right then and there by watching and playing with them.

Well, Justin knocked it out of the park! And then some.

He showed that he is willing to customize teaching to your style, as well.

I learn by ear, so he knew how to use that as an advantage for learning the fretboard and notes. Instead of giving me a paper with chords on it, he challenged me to use my knowledge and play around more thoughtfully to figure out what the names are for notes and chords I'm already playing.

Please, don't hesitate to work with Justin. The price is beyond fair! Especially since other teachers in the same price ranges are between 2-4 stars.

Thanks, Justin!

"Jenni has an incredible depth of knowledge of both Latin and Greek, reflecting not only her years of experience with both languages, but also a very concerted effort to think about the best way to teach these languages.

This became very apparent when I approached her to help me in what I felt would be a near impossible task: to learn a semester's worth of Ancient Greek in one month, starting from scratch.

Her clarity of explanation, her command of the material, and her professionalism as a tutor and teacher all made that possible, to the point where when I actually showed up to class, I actually found myself ahead of where everybody else was. I had mastered the material so well thanks to her efforts, that on the first test, I achieved a 104% (even got the extra credit mark), much to the impressed amazement of my new professor.

So when I give her this solid review of her skills, it is not to her as a tutor, or even a teacher. It is to her as a professional. Which is what she is in every sense of the word, as an educator, an admirer, and a bonafide inhabitant of the world of classical languages."

"Janis first tutored our son in math. I was impressed with her admission to me that our son was smart enough to do the math on his own, but needed only motivation. She allowed us to be the ones to decide if we wanted to spend the money on tutoring after having this knowledge. We did continue, and she was really great with him. His grade was raised before we knew it! We then found out she gave guitar lessons and hired her to teach my daughter. She was incredibly patient and made the lessons fun. Both my son and daughter developed a strong relationship with her. I highly recommend her to teach anything!"

Colin will also breakaway from the point at hand if he feels that there might be some basic knowledge that I might not be aware of, but will contribute to my understanding.
