Introduction: Garrick Davis World Blues -Live Entertainment 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. 👌🏾💯

We called hoping to find an amazing musician for my mom’s memorial service. We were truly fortunate to have found Garrick Davis. Garrick was super easy to work with. He reviewed our music options and we settle on songs by Sam Cooke and Stevie Wonder. As the day approached I was super nervous for the program was set. On the day, Garrick arrived early and on time! He was prepared and was very professional. I had sent him a copy of the program and it was very obvious that he had reviewed it! Garrick sang with such an amazing quality. He sounded perfect - blending the passion and emotion of both artist while applying his seasoned musician experience. Afterwards people approached me asking how did I find such an amazing musician. That’s all one could hope for from guest. My mom was honored by this musicians talents!! I highly recommend Garrick Davis!! I imagine that there is probably nothing this musician couldn’t handle. Don’t hesitate to book him for your event. You will be thrilled that you did!

I did my guitar learning session with Garrick, and I can assure you, the reader, that you won't be disappointed. I know I wasn't! He teaches with great ease and at a speed that you are comfortable. Music is an art best learned out in the open, and having said that; I was surprised to see that Garrick also teaches music in the open ( in his backyard) where there is open space to help you feel at ease as you will learn the different strings and their combinations. Overall, highly recommended. A great instructor!

Garrick is a passionate & professional musician. He performed for my wife’s funeral service and brought beautiful, spiritual & heartfelt music that inspired & moved my family. His mastery of the guitar & his incredible, soaring voice brought us all together in a way we all truly appreciated. Not only is Garrick a great musician, he communicates well & was very responsive. Thank you Garrick!

Garrick just added a magical element to the whole evening. I proposed to my girlfriend who is a huge Beatles fan. I wanted to have the Beatles playing but in an intimate setting. He somehow made that happen. His music brought so much emotion and happiness that just completed the night. He was a pleasure to work with and would definitely work with him again on the next opportunity.
