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 have really enjoyed taking lessons at Cordell Music so far. He has a good syllabus and the lessons build on one another in an understandable way.

Excellent first lesson. As an adult learning guitar, Eric's was a more holistic approach that got right into a meaningful lesson activity directly applied to the genre of music of interest to me.

I took my first guitar lessons ever with Ryan, and he was an awesome teacher. He was patient with me and taught me all the basics with lots of helpful tips and advice. Ryan is a friendly teacher and willing to work with you on whatever you want to improve or learn about guitar!

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!

Chris is very patient, and knows his stuff. He has great insight into beginning guitar and can really help anyone that is looking to learn develop good habits and pick up the basics quickly. He has a very pleasant and friendly demeanor and is always very supportive even when you are slow to pick up on a technique. As a very basic beginner, Chris has accelerated my learning curve significantly. His simplified approach to teaching me guitar has led me to really want to learn and given me the confidence to believe I can. No book required, Chris uses the music you like and teaches you to play the songs you really want to jam. No Mary Had a Little Lamb here. Thanks Chris!!!

Verified review

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.

Learning how to play the piano was a lifelong dream. I knew Tyson was the right teacher for me immediately. He encouraged me when I needed it and lifted me up when I beat myself down. I left my first lesson being able to play a song!! He is the perfect balance of teacher and mentor.

I've been taking guitar lessons from Jim Coley for a couple of years now. I was self taught on "cowboy chords" and decided in my mid 40's I wanted to learn different styles, be able to read tabs and learn more about the structure of sheet music. Jim's teaching style has made this challenge a fun and enjoyable learning experience. The selection of music and lessons he works with me on has tremendous range and style from Classic Rock, Latin, Funk, Jazz, Blues and more. I would highly recommend some sessions with Jim. It has been and continues to be a great experience.

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.

Barry was my first and only guitar teacher! I started when I was 14 and I stayed with him until I was 17. ( I should've never quit, but he keeps up with me to this day). He is an awesome teacher and very patient and laid back. I loved my guitar sessions and learning not only the basics of guitar but playing music I loved. I definitely recommend him as a teacher.

    Chester is a teacher that perfectly suits my needs, and can be an excellent teacher for anyone. He is friendly enough to make piano lessons interesting and enjoyable, but he also teaches piano very well. He is a great teacher for someone that wants lessons that are knowledgeable, and enjoyable. -Stephen Colletta, age 12
