Where do you perform in the area?
I perform solo as D.T. Huber or as the lead singer of the band Whale Show. I play at various venues in the Baltimore/DC area and beyond. Check out my websites or visit me on Facebook, Twitter, or BandCamp.
Which length of lesson should I choose, half-hour or hour?
With the hour lesson the student will receive more detailed instruction than with the half-hour lesson which is why beginner students usually choose the hour lessons. Half-hour lessons can be great for intermediate or advanced students who are looking to fill in the gaps of their knowledge of guitar. With musical instrument lessons I believe that the frequency of the lessons is most important. That is why most of my students take lessons on a weekly basis. A week is enough time for a student to practice the concepts they’ve learned in a lesson. If more time elapses between the lessons the student may begin to forget some of the concepts learned.
When do you teach guitar lessons
I teach lessons Monday through Thursday in the afternoon and evening as well as Friday and Saturday afternoons.
Do you have open time slots?
Yes. Because I have a pretty flexible schedule, I have several open time slots. I’m sure we’ll be able to figure out a lesson time.
What is your teaching experience?
I began teaching guitar in January of 2003 at Beverly’s Music Emporium, a music store in Bel Air, MD. There I taught many folks, young and old, how to play guitar. I had an average student roster of about 25 people on any given week. Around the same time, when I moved to Baltimore City in mid 2003, I began to take on students who would come to my home studio. Since then, the number of students who come to me in Baltimore has grown and now I teach exclusively out of my home studio.
Do you have references?
Yes I do. If you fill out the form on the Huber Guitar Studio main page and ask for references, I’ll gladly send them to you.
