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

Kim K. , Rockville


Call or email now for an introductory lesson

Limited times available


I teach Guitar, Vocals, Bass, and Songwriting & Production.... at YOUR Home!

I teach students of all ages, but I specialize in teaching kids!

Student Benefits:

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

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

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

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

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

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


I’m exclusive.

I have an incredibly high success rate because I only work with kids that are truly excited about music. The majority of my students study with me for years.

I’m currently fully booked, but will have a LESSON TIME COMING AVAILABLE in two weeks. Contact me now to reserve this lesson time.



Here’s what people are saying about Jim Steed Music!


“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.”
