Welcome to Stancill’s Guitar Studio!

Stancill’s Guitar Studio began in 1994 when opportunity knocked on the door of a single-room retail space near Scott Stancill’s home in the Town of Kensington, Maryland. In 2008, opportunity knocked again and Scott expanded the studio into its present location at 10535 Metropolitan Avenue.

This amazing little studio is “metro-friendly” with a well-deserved reputation of being “the place” to learn guitar. While you’re here, take a quick tour and read some of the student testimonials.


Only highly-skilled and trained professionals lead your private classes in any style or level of Acoustic or Electric Guitar, Music Theory, Electric Bass, and Drums, six days a week; twelve months a year.

Additional classes for RockBand, Chamber Guitar Ensemble, and Blues Harmonica are available throughout the year.

You can also arrange a complimentary tour of the studio!

Appraisals and Repairs

Stancill’s Guitar Studio also has extensive experience in guitar repairs.

If you have a guitar that’s been in storage for a while it probably needs a thorough check-up. Our courteous and knowledgeable staff will help you decide whether or not it’s worth fixing-up or selling for a profit.
