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!

I've been taking guitar lessons around the country for over 40 years, and Mark Warnock is the finest instructor I've ever had. His depth of knowledge of the instrument, never-ending patience and friendly demeanor make him the perfect expert from whom to learn. I highly recommend him.

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!!

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.

I have heard Stephen Keller play and been in the room where he was giving guitar lessons. His playing skills are superb and he is very patient and instructive with lessons. One student was much younger and one much older and Stephen was very flexible working with them. If I had any musical aptitude, he is the one I would choose for lessons.

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.

George is an extraordinary voice teacher - the best I have ever worked with, and I have worked with many. He speaks 5 languages and can accompany you on the piano or the guitar, in almost any genre, although my focus is opera. I started getting gigs and winning competitions after less than 6 months studying with him.

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.

Mr. Russ has been teaching our 10 year old son drumming for just over three years, in our home. He is very patient, flexible and cooperative. He is a fantastic drummer who is great with kids, easy going, but gets the job done. With Mr. Russ' teaching my son has drummed at church and at school and has learnt to read drumming music.

In a few words, I never thought I was going to be able to play the bass. Now I am. And I owe it to Linda. She's the most patient, talented, resourceful teacher I've ever met. She's fun to be around and is always interested in learning new songs just so she can teach me. I would recommend Linda to anyone who not only wants to learn how to play an instrument but is also looking for having a good time while learning. Thank you for everything, Linda!
