Can't say enough good things about Bones Jones Music. As an adult who never touched a guitar until 18 months ago, I was hesitant. Billy, Jeff, and the rest of the gang are so patient and welcoming. They listen to the needs of their students and keep coming up with fun new classes.

"Billy and Jeff are great instructors. I've learned a ton in the 6 months I've been here, and there's plenty of opportunity to learn more, whether it's weekly improv / rock band classes, or performing live at Dawson's. Outside of class, there has been a trip to Martin Guitar Factory in PA, and an upcoming trip to Wolf Trap."
- Kevin Chen (BJM student since 2018)
My son has been taking lessons there for more than a year and has shown great progress and has even performed in public several times as part of summer camp and recitals. The teachers are great; they're patient and adapt well to changing music preferences and are happy to help clueless parents navigate the many options for instruments and can help you get a good instrument without breaking the bank. Despite only one of my kids taking lessons the staff treats all three of them like they are long time students. It's a great place and has really helped my son develop a passion for music.

Bones Jones is more than a single weekly lesson. It's truly an education in music, a musical experience in which students not only learn to play, but learn to play with other students, to collaborate with other students and the excellent, excellent teachers, all accomplished band musicians themselves.
I can't say enough good things about Bones Jones Music. It's been a great investment for me and, more important, continues to be a great learning and music experience for my son.
