Brian specializes in classical guitar, but his repertoire includes rock, jazz, and blues. The musician of choice for weddings, corporate events, and concerts, Brian has been performing professionally for over 20 years at venues in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC.

Brian Slaymaker started his professional performance career as a rock musician playing lead guitar and bass guitar with rock bands in Virginia, Maryland, California, and New York.

Along with his performance schedule, Brian maintains an active teaching studio in Virginia.

We had a fabulous experience with Brian Slaymaker! He was very professional and a fantastic performer. He had a great selection of songs and was willing to go any direction we wanted. He was the icing on the cake for our party and the guest complimented his playing. If we had another party Brian would be my go-to! So glad I found him.

Brian was super in every way. His repertoire is terrific and the classical (and some pop) guitar he provided was the exact right note and won praise from everyone there. If you are seeking a highly talented and very understanding performer, I would highly recommend Brian for any sort of gig.
