Teaching a lot of Hendrix lately. Purple Haze is such a rockin classic and one of his easier songs to play. This song is a great entry point for intermediate guitarists, which makes great use of the extended Em pentatonic scale in the intro riff. The main rhythm theme also employs the use of the infamous E7#9 chord which Hendrix creatively took from the jazz world and brought to life in a rock context. The solo is coming soon in another video with a break down on how Hendrix fused the pentatonic scale with the moody Dorian mode.

Now Enrolling New Students! Guitar - Voice - Piano - Bass - Drums - Ukulele

There are so many benefits to learning how to play music, but one of the biggest benefits, especially as it relates to these challenging times that we are experiencing, is the ability for music to speak what cannot be expressed, to soothe our minds and give it rest.

Learning music has the power to release us from our day to day worries, and take us out of ourselves for a little while, and gives us something to put our energy into. Music is therapy and a most welcome reprieve, it can give us a sense of calm and focus and maybe even for some a sense of purpose.

So if you or someone in your family are feeling the call to learn a musical instrument, or continue pursuing your music education, contact us today to schedule your first lesson.

[03/14/20]   Dear students and parents,

The events of this past week have been a whirlwind for us all.

In response to Covid-19, we are adopting the following policies:

New Virtual Option via the Zoom platform. Zoom lessons are a nice easy option, just let your instructor know that you'd like to give this a try and he/she will send you an email with a link to your scheduled meeting time. All you will need to do is set up a free account on https://zoom.us and use a laptop with internal mic and camera. We did a few of these last week and it worked out great! At this point we are making this optional. We will update you if we need to move fully to this platform in the interest of safety.

One-on-one In-studio lessons will still be offered by both instructors, Jim Cash and Ashley Cash. We can be flexible with scheduling if you’d like to find a new time. Please be assured that we are taking extra cleaning precautions in the studio. We request that guitar students be sure to bring their own guitar picks and capos for lessons. And of course, if you or someone in your household are not feeling well, please stay home and either cancel or opt for the virtual lesson instead.

One-on-one in-home lessons with Monty Smith and Jim Cash will still be offered based on your preference/ level of comfortability.

Billing – we request that you pay your monthly bill on time for the original amount. If you are having financial difficulties, we will honor your need for refunds or credits. Please do keep in mind that this is our livelihood in addition to performance and many of our dates have been canceled for the next 4 weeks or more.
We believe that music is a powerful tool for relieving stress, anxiety, and in these long days at home, can brighten the spirits of the entire household!


Thank you all for your continued support,

Jim and Ashley Cash

Owners, Potomac Falls Music, LLC

PS – The next Student Showcase is set for Thursday June 11th 7-9pm at Café Monmartre in Reston!
