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.

Awesome teacher!! I have been taking lessons for five years with Eric and can honestly say that I would not be where I am as a guitarist today if I hadn't. As a teacher, Eric helps to explain not only "how" to play, but goes further to explain the "why" behind it all, teaching the "music theory" behind what is being played in a way that is both understandable and applicable to becoming a better musician. Starting out as just a beginner, I knew that there was always something new that I could learn from Eric, from learning how to play my favorites songs, to being taught new chord structures and scale concepts, I always had something cool, exciting, and challenging to go home and practice. I would highly recommend Eric as a teacher for anyone looking to become a better guitarist and musician.

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!

Trey has been patient and persistent, but never pushy, in his follow-ups to have my first guitar lesson. It is something I have truly appreciated. I'm really thankful to start playing guitar after a 25-year hiatus. I'm grateful to have such a talented musician and guitarist in my corner to help me become better.

    I have been taking bass guitar lessons with Tom for a couple of years now, and he has been a great teacher. He teaches all ages and has the patience of a saint for some of his younger students. He teaches the basics of playing with everything from learning the notes on your instrument to learning to read sheet music and music theory. He can also work with more advanced music students. He teaches piano, guitar, and bass guitar often playing with the student to help them hear what they should be doing if they get stuck on some lesson goal. He has always been great with my scheduling if something came up that meant I had to move my lesson to another day or time. He also is very good about communicating if he has scheduling conflicts as well, so you always know what is happening with your class. Overall, an excellent first music teacher, regardless of age, that you will not be disappointed with giving him a try.
