    Lesson Instructor at Ellicott City, Timonium, and Arundel Mills
  • My bass teacher at Music & Arts is a world class guitarist, but also the most empathetic and talented instructor. I am amazed that he is teaching a beginner like me!

    Ariane L. Reeves, Lesson Student
  • The level of service and sense of community that (he) has generated via Open Mic nights, regular recitals, and a top notch team of instructors and front desk staff is one of the reasons that we evolved into a family that has three weekly music lessons and bought an electric guitar and banjo from (his) store in addition to a regular flow of sheet music and accessories.

    Bill Watson, North Tucson Lesson Customer
  • Music & Arts provides a terrific environment for teachers and students to move forward in their common goal. Improvement in music can come in many forms. With this in mind music and arts provides a safe environment, sheet music, and musical gear upgrades. These elements, combined with instruction, add up to the best situation for a student to improve their ability to perform.
