Chris Volksto, Alexandria, Va. 

I offer guitar lessons via Zoom or Google Meet. I will get you jamming fast by focusing on rhythmic studies, synchronization of the hands, and being able to feel the “groove” inherent in all styles. Only after a certain confidence-level is reached do I present music theory – and even then only if you’re into that.

Gina Furtado, Winchester, Va.
