Middleway Music is a private teaching studio run by multi-instrumentalist composer and performer, Manny Bernardo. We offer private instruction in guitar (all levels), piano (beginner), music theory, and songwriting.

The studio is located in North Bethesda, just a short walk from the Grosvenor/Strathmore stop on the red line, near the intersection of Tuckerman Lane and Rockville Pike.

Over the last six years Middleway has grown into a dynamic and bustling teaching studio. In addition to weekly lessons, we put on major concerts twice a year at esteemed local venues. These “concert recitals” feature a professional backing band, full-production DVD’s, memorable show posters, and post-show recording sessions at the legendary Inner Ear studio in Shirlington.

Though we specialize in adult learners, Middlewayis dedicated to developing talent at any age and skill level. The present student body is a rich mixture of young professionals, busy parents, talented youth, aspiring pros, and happy amateurs.

At Middleway we believe that learning an instrument is more than a hobby—it is an investment in personal well-being. Above all, we seek to inspire people, young and old, and unite them in the joy of music making. We are a community of music lovers, and we invite you to join the fun and bring music into your own life and home.
