Q&As

I love watching young students grow and mature. Several of my students have graduated and received scholarships along with joining the military bands.

My passion is teaching. Throughout my college years and beyond I served as a percussion instructor and assistant band director at Morgan State University. I retired after 15+ years as a High school administrator in Maryland, DC and Connecticut.

We are the only school in Southern Maryland that offers these popular instruments: All acoustic Pianos, Electric & Acoustic Guitar, Drum set, Brass, Flute, Clarinet, Saxaphone, and Bass in one location. We are also the only school in Southern Maryland that has installed LED monitors in each teaching room so that you can bring your iPhone, iPad, or any mobile device to give you the BEST music lesson experience in Maryland that no one else can offer.

We provide lessons online as well as in person at our store location in Waldorf, MD. You are welcome to come visit during store hours.

Masks are voluntary at this time, however our teachers wear masks during lessons, and there is hand sanitizer available for your needs.

Whether you aspire to play Bach or Alicia Keys, OFF-C's dedicated piano instructors will help you become the pianist you want to be. Our faculty will introduce you to the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, and incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. You do not need a piano at home to take lessons; a simple full-size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first six months.

At OFF-C Music Academy, every state-of-the-art drum lesson room is equipped with electric drum kits for our students. Our instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles of drumming, and challenge every student with technical exercises specifically designed to improve their speed and comfort. Beginning students need only their drumsticks and a notebook, and all that’s needed for practice at home is an inexpensive drum pad.

Our bass instructors teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical styles on both electric and acoustic basses. Beginners work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Each bass lesson will challenge you with a new technique or music theory, and ends with something fun – such as your favorite riff or song. We employ a variety of bass method books based on student needs and preferences, and encourage students to bring smartphones or CDs to their lessons to learn their favorite tunes.

Our guitar instructors teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical styles on both electric and acoustic guitars. Beginners work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. Each lesson will challenge you with a new technique or music theory, and ends with something fun – such as your favorite riff or song.

If you've always wanted to hone your skills as a rock, pop, country, jazz, gospel or R&B singer, Columbia has the voice teacher for you. Our voice faculty focuses primarily on popular music. Each week, students are led through physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, enunciation and more.

Whether you've picked up the Trumpet, French Horn, or Trombone as a hobby, or would like lessons for school, we've got you covered. Beginning students learn proper technique, how to read sheet music, and the basics of music theory. To help keep each lesson fun, students are encouraged to bring in their favorite sheet music to learn. Each lesson is tailored to meet your individual needs and goals, so we use a variety of lesson and technique books to help you grow.

Our talented Woodwinds instructor is here to help you achieve your Flute, Clarinet, or Saxophone goals. Beginner lessons focus on reading sheet music and learning proper breathing techniques. As you improve, we will continue to help you improve your sound as you learn more complex pieces. Do you have a favorite song or two that you want to learn? Our instructors incorporate your favorite music into lessons to help keep things fun.
