Student Spotlight: Chris Holloway performs “Take Five”


Student Spotlight. Students perform songs at EW Guitar Lessons in BaltimoreThis Student Spotlight features Chris Holloway playing “Take Five” by The Dave Brubeck Quartet. Chris has been my student since 2011 and it has be an amazing journey to see him grow into a fantastic musician and a wonderful young man. We’ve been through four Rock ‘N Roll Revivals, a major musical production at Severna Park High School, and countless lessons covering everything from blues to classic rock to jazz. As his teacher, Chris’s humility, work ethic and passion have made each step along the way fun and fulfilling for me.



This isn’t Chris’s first time being featured on Student Spotlight. Check this video out from 2012. You could tell Chris had immense talent even at that young age.



Give Chris a round of applause. Please comment below to tell Chris how much you enjoyed his performance!

Student Spotlight: Mark and Adam perform “Wish You Were Here”


Student Spotlight. Students perform songs at EW Guitar Lessons in BaltimoreThis Student Spotlight features Mark and Adam Jarek performing “Wish You Were Here.” This father-son team has been taking lessons with me for quite awhile and decided to team up and rock out! It has been fun for me to see them push each other to play better. Adam and Mark arranged this piece on their own, deciding who solos and when with very little input from me. It is also important to note the Mark’s (the dad) solo was completely improvised on the spot.

In less than a year, he has progressed from beginner to a hard-rocking Angus Young stand-in. That’s very impressive! Adam worked especially hard at the tricky bridge section of this song. I’m proud of his hard work and dedication. That will go a long way!

He always has a positive, can-do attitude. And, as if that weren’t all a teacher could hope for, Luke is also very polite. He always asks me how my weekend was when he greets me before our Monday afternoon lessons. When he’s not doing homework, practicing guitar or goofing around on the tablet, he plays soccer and futsol too! Quite a multi-talented dude! Congratulations to Luke on a job well done!
