Introduction: Garrick Davis Academy Of Music Performance - Garrick Davis World Blues I consider myself a guide. I am self-taught but it is through working with many students that I have learned how complex learning guitar can be. I teach Blues for building a sense of rhythm/dynamics/structure and Beatles music for learning chords and learning song structure. I actually work with all kinds of music from metal(Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold) to singer/songwriter(Taylor Swift) and more. Check out my YouTube lesson videos to see the variety of styles my past and current students learn, by choice! My main goal is to help create a satisfying foundation for students to understand music through this great instrument and it's potential to create bridges, build self-esteem and lines to communicate 'for life'. Playing guitar makes it possible to do something almost magical and will add to a person's life as well as to those around them. I love to see progress and success by those who put effort into the quest. There is no other way to succeed in this but to do the work. It will pay dividends! Long v Short Term Clients: People seek out my services for various reasons. Some start as beginners, others come with more experience. I love having the opportunity to work with anyone who has a clearly defined “why” as to guitar playing and music performance in general. While I appreciate Long Term clients, I also accept students who are looking to learn specific things, such as Music Theory or a particular song. This can be carried out over 4 sessions or less. Don’t be too shy to inquire about this. 👌🏾💯

Garrick was an absolute gem to discover and have to perform virtually for an online event we held to celebrate Black History Month. The way he weaved his personal story into the music he played, captivated the audience (online mind you - which is not an easy task) is something I was amazed by. Excited to have him perform again in the future. Highly recommend!

He thoughtfully selected the songs and even though we only hired him for 15 minutes, he impressed and entertained everyone thoroughly. We would definitely hire him again!

Garrick was AMAZING!!!! Nothing short of that. I asked him last min to do a cover for a special song and he delivered! It was perfect! I will definitely hire him again for sure. From a 1- 10 he is a 10!! Loved his performance!! Side note: I had an event for child trafficking and human trafficking and the song I chose was “rescue” that song was dedicated to all the victims still suffering. THANK YOU GARRICK! You made my event so much more special.
Garrick Davis A.M.P.; Garrick Davis World Blues's reply
It was a great blessing to have been hired/invited to play for your event. Hearing your story, before I performed the songs you requested helped bring more weight as to why I was there in the first place. Congratulations on your transformation! We were all witnessing your power and grace - I am honored!💯👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Guitar Lessons

Garrick's lessons have been very useful to me as a self taught beginner who was getting frustrated when trying to leap ahead without a good foundation in playing technique and music theory. Pulling from years of experience leading his own band and his own self taught journey, Garrick provides a learning experience with tips and guidance that is useful for beginning and experienced players alike.
