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.

I love HoneyBee Records!! My daughter has been taking lessons with Erik Bennett since she was eight and she is about to turn sixteen. She started taking lessons from Elise Bennett several years ago. Over the years, we have had so many wonderful experiences with recital performances, competitions, dinner theatres, studio recordings, and as a "music family". Erik has such creativity and vision and it shows through in everything he does. As business owners and teachers, Erik and Elise are both professional, extremely talented, and very hard working. They love their students and devote all of their talents and love of music into the growth of each student. Not only do they teach, they have a personal interest in the lives of each student. I cannot imagine what our daily lives would be like without Erik, Elise and the HoneyBee Family. Love you guys!!

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.

Mike is teaching my granddaughter guitar. Even though she didn't have the guitar she needed he still worked with her on what she has.

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.
