Do you have a guitar gathering dust in the corner of your house – silently mocking you every time you walk past it?
Is that guitar that you bought for your son or daughter last Christmas gathering dust in a dark corner of the closet?
Did you (or your son or daughter) start guitar lessons only to:
1. Never practice.
2. Quit after you bought the guitar, case, music books, lessons, etc?
Bad news: those are legit concerns and real problems.
Good news: you don’t need to worry about them. Here’s why:

Welcome to Severn River Guitar
We provide beginner and intermediate private guitar instruction for busy kids and adults.
We provide private guitar instruction in your home. Most of our students prefer this at-home method as it’s low-stress and convenient.
What you will learn…
We specialize in teaching beginning and intermediate guitarists who want to play rock, pop, blues, or folk music on the acoustic or electric guitar. Some of our students want to be the next Taylor Swift or John Mayer, others dream of strumming Beatles tunes with their family by the campfire (or impressing the rest of your office with some sweet blues licks).
Kids learn differently than adults – this is fairly obvious – though many instructors/schools teach adults and kids in the same way, and with the same material. We take a different approach (in other words, if you’re over the age of 10, we’re not going to teach you “Mary had a Little Lamb”… unless you want us to).
It’s really important to teach/learn material that is engaging (and actually interesting) – we want to do what we can to help you stick with it. This approach is a little unconventional, but really effective, and really fun.
In addition to guitar technique, we incorporate performance and/or recording if students are interested. One of the biggest motivators in learning the guitar is having something to look forward to – a tangible goal. At least once a year, we try to provide performance opportunities (typically at a local coffee shop or other venue) if our students are interested. Additionally, many students enjoy having their music recorded so they can share with family and friends. We can do both.
Before your first lesson, we will talk about your goals, skill level, and musical tastes. This will help to give us an idea of where to start with an organized and tailored plan.
