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.

Cool guy and super knowledgeable about music. His lessons go much deeper than just learning songs, he's going to teach you the theory behind them and how to understand/deconstruct them, which I really appreciate. You really get a sense that he has a plan for you to improve, he keeps track of your progress and has a program for you as a player. I also like the informal atmosphere, he's easy to talk to. Would definitely recommend him to any player looking to improve.

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.

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.

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.

Justin is a very knowledgeable and patient instructor. The guitar can be intimidating especially for an adult learner and he made learning the chords on the guitar very easy and fun. I would highly recommend his services.

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.

My son has been receiving piano lessons for @ 1 month. His teacher, Ben Phillips, is great. The lessons are fun and easy going, and he really looks forward to the evenings that he has lessons. I don't even have to bug him to practice. It has been great!

The 44th Note provided guitar lessons for my daughter from age 10-17. It was an incredible experience for her. Can't say enough great things about instructor. We were so sad when the company and our fantastic instructor relocated to another state. Will continue with online lessons.

The twins have playing now long pieces since he started with them few months ago. WE WOULD TOTALLY RECOMMEND MR WALLACE FOR ANY PIANO LESSONS. I n addition, Mr. Wallace has gracefully agreed to come to our home to offer the lessons. He is also always on time and in great spirit.

About

I share 55 years of experience in six-string guitars and 40 years under a steel. I prefer students who are beginners or a little higher. You will need the best comfortable guitar you can afford. I would like to know the make and model of your guitar. If you prefer an electric, bring ONLY the guitar. I have plenty of amps. I am not an exponent of one style of music; instead I teach you the basics so you can easily play any style you like. I expect you to practice 15 - 30 minutes a day, 7 days a week. Why? Well, you won't learn guitar from me: you'll learn it from YOU. Those times when you start applying what I teach you is where you start making that guitar your own. You also need regular practice to toughen the 4 fingertips of your left hand. Rate: $50 per hour or part thereof, delivered at my home 121 Hampshire Ct, Avondale Estates, 30002, Saturdays at 2pm, and only there. Let me know if these terms suit you. We'll have fun! Our book is Jerry Snyder's Guitar School, ISBN 10: 088284-901-8 Please bring $6.50 on your first day for your book. Wade Medlock
