    Howdy. I'm looking for an instructor in Maryland, perferably somewhere around Frederick. Can anyone recommend someone? I am willing to travel a little, maybe 40 miles or so, for the right teacher. I'm an intermediate player. The instructor doesn't need to be employeed at a music store or college, just as long as they are qualified. thanks!!

    Hey are you familiar with Dave LaRue? I take lessons by correspondence from him - have for a little over a year. He charges $75.00 a lesson but it's the best deal in town. Takes me a good two months to get through everything he assigns on each lessson. Sounds like I was in the same boat as you. Good, but not able to get my playing to the next level. Dave is able to read into your playing and stear you in the right direction. Check him out at www.davelarue.com . Good luck!

    I took a couple of lessons from Dave LaRue a couple years back. I'm not sure I am good enough for coorespondence yet, I think I still need somebody to help me out in person. That being said, I emailed Dave last month about starting back up. I just haven't gotten the courage together to send him a tape yet...heheh. Perhaps I'll do this after all. Thanks for the reply!

    Yeah, Dave rules...

    ...and the face-to-face lessons are even more intimidating! :eek:


    ...I don't study with him anymore, but I work where he teaches...

    :D
