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!
Our daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Gene Hilbert for about a year now. She is not only playing the guitar, she is playing complicated melodies! She has learned and continues to learn classics, rock n' roll, country, rhythm & blues. He gives her the kind of music training that keeps her wanting to learn more and enjoys practicing. He is brilliant in our opinion and works great with kids. We also know several children whom are being taught by Gene and they love their guitar lessons and music training too!!
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!!
Chris is a one of a kind guitar instructor. He is personable and dedicated to teaching music. I have learned more from him in a short amount of time than I have from previous instructors. He understands that each individual learns differently and he creates a program for every student. Working/Playing music with him has given me more motivation to play more at home (I work 50+ hours a week) than any other instructor has ever given me. I would highly recommend Mr.Silver and I am looking forward to continuing my lessons with him.
Nora is an excellent piano teacher. I am an adult student, and I have found her to be very patient and easy to work with. Nora does a great job explaining and offering suggestions and is very helpful. I recommend her highly!
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.
I offer professional in-home guitar and bass guitar lessons.
The guitar or bass guitar lessons are tailored to the student depending on his/her individual interests. I believe all students shall need a comprehensive study of styles and techniques focusing on the musical genres that they are most passionate about.
I teach all ages and all skill levels; anyone can learn guitar! The lessons are performed in the comfort of your own home which I believe is the best place to learn, free from distractions and the stress of an office environment.
