Guitar, Vocals, Ukulele, Bass, Songwriting & Production.... at YOUR Home!

"The best in home lesson experience in the DC Metro Area!"

Kim K. , Rockville

“Jim Steed has provided guitar instruction as well as voice lessons to our youngest daughter for over 5 years. Close friends of ours originally recommended him…he teaches all three of their children as well as others in our neighborhood.

His skill and manner of instruction in both guitar and voice is excellent and most importantly, works for our daughter. His patience during lessons also deserves mention. Jim is prompt and flexible and giving with his time while at the same time, he runs his “guitar school” as the business that it is.

We have gone on to praise him to others seeking guitar lessons for their children…and this is the best recommendation of all.”

What Makes My Lessons Special

All my students feel like rock stars! Because I make sure each lesson is both fun and enriching.

I don’t overbook myself so my current clients get the full benefit of my energy.

I provide a clear lesson plan complete with goals, achievement levels, and performances.

Music lessons have other great benefits like: Better grades, higher self esteem, more confidence, good social skills...and more!

I use a song based teaching system so my students are learning songs they love while they get the academic benefits of music.

I’ve seen the benefits of music proven over and over, and I know that I’m teaching so much more than music.


“Jim is an excellent teacher and has been able to keep my son interested and progressing with his music for several years”
