The high-quality training and education you receive at Maryland Bartending Academy begins with our experienced industry veterans. They teach everything from how to mix a drink to how to properly close a bar when the night is over. Hands-on training is our specialty, and when you complete the course you will be comfortable behind any bar, mixing any type of drink. Our main goal has always been to provide the highest quality instruction in the best learning environment available.
The instructors at the Maryland Bartending Academy are industry professionals who have spent decades in the service and bartending field. They share their passion, knowledge, and experience with every student. Our instructors – including our founder Mark Russell – work individually with each student to ensure he or she understands the procedures, process, and fundamentals.
Each class begins with a lecture and demonstration from our instructors. Teaching in our state-of-art facility, in a controlled environment, instructors explain each step before they move forward. When you “learn by doing”, it is natural to retain more of the information.
After the lecture is complete, students get behind the bar and practice what they just learned. This combination of teaching and doing enables our students to fully understand the methods and actions that produce excellent bartenders. Working behind our bar also builds confidence – a trait that potential employers are always looking to see when they want to fill a position.
Best of all, the experienced teachers at our school make the learning fun! Check out the Testimonials and see what the graduates of our bartending school have to say about our instructors.
