Ira Strum Guitar Lessons in Washington, DC
I teach guitar lessons with a method that is more geared towards fun and being able to socialize with music than with theory (at least in the beginning). I find that most of my students appreciate this more than having to go through entire guitar lessons devoted to theory. I have taught students as young as 7 years old and the idea is to keep them interested and vested in completing the current lesson and exploring on their own.
Once the music bug has bitten and there is an interest that is driving the student to soak up anything and everything that is guitar related, then a traditional teaching program can be put in place to achieve whatever goals you desire.

I grew up in Haworth, NJ and then I was sent to private school in Cheshire, CT to finish High School before entering Syracuse University. I traveled extensively across the U.S. reaching various points on the West Coast many times before settling in San Francisco. After finishing my degree at Syracuse there was a stint in Stockbridge, MA and then back to NJ. I now live in Washington, DC.
