When I came to Dave Lockwood for guitar lessons, I was struggling in kind of a self-taught rut. I could play chords for a lot of songs, but I didn't know the theory or anything you would call "advanced". Dave's methods show you how to understand the fretboard and why certain notes and chords go together. He is really helping me become a complete player.
Mostly though, Dave is a very patient teacher. He doesn't mind going over the same material with you until you understand it and he'll take different approaches until you get it. I really appreciate this about his teaching methods.
It was my 9 year old son's first guitar lesson and he responded really well to Paige. He even commented on how "supportive" and "nice" she was. Professional and Punctual. A great find in the neighborhood.
I have been taking lessons from Ryan for about 10 months now and each week I see myself growing and sharpening my skill. I took guitar lessons when I was a teenager, but I wanted to get back at it and take my talents to the next level. We restarted my training and went from the building blocks of scales to the formation of modes. Now I am almost to a point where I can play any scale and mode horizontally and vertically up the neck of the guitar.
He's a brilliant instructor who finds the best method of teaching for each student. Looking forward to taking more lessons with him. We even do Skype lessons since I moved out of the Alpharetta/Johns Creek area!
What a great experience my son has had since starting guitar lessons at Lawrenceville-Suwanee School of Music. The staff could not be nicer or more professional. The teachers are all highly experienced, and you can just tell that they love what they do. They make the children, and the parents, feel like family. I wouldn't take my child any place else, and I would highly recommend this music school to anyone - great place!
My son has been taking lessons from Tyson for 6 years!!! Obviously we are pleased with his approach to teaching guitar. He LOVES guitar completely due to Tyson’s passion for guitar and his ability to teach it so well!
Gene has been teaching guitar lessons to my son for five years now. He is always on time, and often stays longer than our scheduled lesson time if my son needs additional help from him. He is extremely knowledgable about every aspect of the guitar and theory. He teaches every genre, improvisation, and songwriting. I would recommend Gene Hilbert to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar!
Will is a professional and really knows his stuff! I’ve learned so much from my guitar lessons with him. He really makes you feel comfortable and moves at your pace while also challenging you to grow in your learning. I’ve also tried video lessons with him and that worked out just as good if not better. I had only basic knowledge in guitar but Will helped me feel comfortable learning the more challenging chords (like F and Bm 🙌🏽). Overall, I highly recommend Will for anyone who wants to learn how to play or who wants to take their skill to the next level!
I've been working with Derek now for a few years and I have learned so much and have expanded my guitar playing more than I could ever imagine. He encouraged me to truly be a part of the music and song. At first I was afraid of making mistakes and he taught me that keeping the integrity of the song is more important than focusing on the mechanics of playing. I can't imagine taking guitar lessons from anyone else!! He is a very encouraging teacher and has an incredible amount of experience in the music industry. If you're interested in taking music lessons, I highly recommend contacting Derek Ferwerda!!
As a beginning pianist, she understood where I was and knew exactly what I needed to do to more effective practice.
She has helped me fix several mistakes that I have made while I was teaching myself to learn piano.
Although I honestly think she's at times "too" professional, I would definitely recommend her for people like me who are new to piano but would like to use their money to progress faster, fix mistakes and move towards the right direction.
My son has been taking guitar lessons from Ms. Arrington for almost 2 years, and he loves them. She is patient, supportive, very friendly, and obviously loves what she does. In his case, she endorses his uniqueness while teaching him the basics he needs to maximize his personal style.
WE have hired Mr Wallace for our twins piano lessons. He is a wonderful teacher, very calm, poised, patient and very knowledgeable. The twins have playing now long pieces since he started with them few months ago. WE WOULD TOTALLY RECOMMEND MR WALLACE FOR ANY PIANO LESSONS. I n addition, Mr. Wallace has gracefully agreed to come to our home to offer the lessons. He is also always on time and in great spirit. Thank you Mr Wallace: Charles and Charlotte Sow and their parents :) :) :) THUMBS UP
I am a professional performer and instructor. I specialize on the guitar. I play all styles of music and also have solo guitar stuff prepared. I would have to say my solo guitar material is a mix between Chet Atkins, Barney Kessel, and Andres Segovia.
I have been playing, for 15 years, acoustic and electric. If I travel, you must have your own equipment. I do supply if you come to me. I teach students at ages 10 and up. I also teach music theory and sight reading.
My name is Patrick Serra, and I have been an avid musician for 10 years now. I play a wide range of fretted instruments, from guitar to the Irish bouzouki.
I also build and repair musical instruments. To see my work, visit my website.
