Baltimore Guitar Lessons

My name is Earle Wood and I give guitar lessons to people of all ages in the Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Severna Park and Annapolis area.  If you’re a beginner, I can help you get started and teach you how to play the songs you love. If you’ve already been playing guitar a bit but want to hone your skills, I can do that too! Get started by texting or calling me at 443-742-1229, or by emailing me at

Learn about me.

I’m here to help you become a better guitar player. I can teach at your home or you can come to my studio. My studio is centrally located in Glen Burnie, a town in northern Anne Arundel County, just south of Baltimore. I serve the areas around Baltimore, Annapolis, Anne Arundel and Severna Park. I have a passion for teaching guitar lessons using a student-centered approach.

What does “student-centered” mean? It means that we will work together to define your goals as a musician and I will develop a customized guitar lesson plan to help you reach those goals. We’ll use real songs as the basis for your guitar lessons and exercises for learning techniques and theories.

I give guitar lessons full-time. I’m available during the week between our lessons to help in any way that you need.

I create these guitar lessons using my background of more than 20 years of playing experience. I play both acoustic and electric guitar in rock, blues, pop, R&B and folk styles. I have performed live and written my own music. I hold a Master’s Certificate in Guitar from Berklee Music, a division of the Berklee College of Music. If you’re looking for a teacher who is low on ego but high on enthusiasm, then you’ve come to the right place.

Learn about you.

Have you always wanted to play guitar but never knew how to start? Have you been playing a bit but you want to learn some more advanced techniques? Do you just want help learning more songs? Whatever your experience level, I can help you become a better player.

Maybe you have a dream of stepping on stage. Or you may want to learn guitar for your personal enrichment. You may be looking for a way to unwind by making music. Or maybe you just want to entertain some friends at a cookout. Any motivation to play music is a good one. The next step is to begin your learning.

Whatever you want to do, whatever you want to play — I’ll help you get there.

What can you learn?

Deciding what you want to learn can be a daunting choice, but it really just comes down to what you want to play. Once you decide what style you like or which songs you want to learn, I can help you focus your guitar lessons to fit your goals.

I can teach you a wide variety of techniques, concepts and styles, including:

• Scales (major, minor, modes, pentatonic, blues)
• Chords (open, barre, inversions, sevenths, etc.)
• Improvisation
• Rhythm technique and groove playing (strumming, finger-picking)
• Advanced techniques (hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, bends, vibrato, etc.)
• Gear beyond your guitar (amps, pedals, effects)
• Reading tablature and standard notation
• Music theory
• Rock, blues, pop, R&B, country and folk styles
• Tuning, setup and maintaining your guitar

I will teach these concepts and techniques using songs that you want to learn. We’ll work only on the things you want to learn at a pace that is comfortable for you.

I have transcribed songs from scratch for my students to help them learn new material. I’ll do that for you!
