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.

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!

When my grandson expressed an interest in playing the guitar, I began my search for guitar lessons. In my search, I found the Childbloom Guitar Program North East Georgia. During my first conversation with Mr. Derwyn Browne, the Director and teacher of the Childbloom Guitar Program, I had a great feeling that this was the beginning of something big for my grandson and I was right. The Childbloom style of teaching a student to play the guitar is an amazing program. Mr. Browne is a very patient and kind teacher and he displays his great love for music to his students. He does a great job of teaching the children how to play the guitar, while instilling in them the importance of learning proper technique in their fingering and playing. My grandson has been taking lessons in the Childbloom Guitar Program for 3 years and his skill level has definitely increased during that time period. He is being taught how to read music along with music theory and is becoming a wonderful guitar player. I have no regrets in enrolling my grandson in this guitar program and he is having a great learning experience, while growing his skills and mastering the guitar.

I have taken guitar lessons before, but I wasn't learning or moving forward at the pace I wanted. He played guitar the whole time and seemed detached, annoyed and uninterested in helping me. He really didn't seem passionate about his lessons/teaching methods and what I learned over time. So I finally decided to try again and I took guitar lessons from Cam about a year ago and it's been the most rewarding experience.

About

I have been a professional musician for 51 years and have done numerous engagements, both in the performance and recording areas of this business. I can tailor my method of teaching to the students' expectations or give them a combination that meets their needs, along with reasonable explanations about theory. Ultimately, if the student is a beginner, intermediate, or an advanced player, I am sure that they will be happy with the results.
