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.

Keith is an exceptional teacher. Taught well beyond just simple chords and individual songs. Taught theory and had a very simple approach to making this complicated instrument not seem so overwhelming. I recommend Cordell music to any and all!

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.

James has done some good work with our son. He is engaging and covers a breadth of musical theory, percussion and various instruments. I like his focus is on helping my son become a musician and not just a drummer or percussionist.

I have been taking jazz music theory lessons with Ryan for 8 months and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Ryan is extremely knowledgeable and conversant in all forms of music. Ryan is an experienced teacher who works to a plan and knows how to push his students appropriately to help them realize their potential. Ryan is able to demonstrate everything he wants his students to learn, which is extremely helpful.

I took about a handful of piano lessons several years ago and recently decided I wanted to give it another try. All my colleagues possess artistic talents outside their careers, and I want to bring something to the table. Ray Akers absolutely helped me achieve that goal! He thoroughly coursed me through the basics, techniques, and exercises until I had a comfortable understanding. He is no stranger to constructive criticism, but he also points out my strengths and encourages improvement through independent practice. Before I knew it, I was reading sheet music while playing without sweating profusely! A very diverse and talented musician himself, he helped me uncover my own niche in music genres. I have an entirely new perception and level of appreciation now when enjoying a live performance or listening to an album. I'm so glad I got more than I expected from his instruction. Mr. Akers is punctual, professional, technical and always ready to share his knowledge and joy of musical expression. I would definitely recommend him to a friend!

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!

As Mr Chris Mauro says, " I play guitar because it is who I am". That is what caught my attention , and what attracted me to hire him. Chris came home every week to give guitar lessons to my 9 year old son. And he is very flexible and willing to accomodate you if ever you need to postpone a lesson. As a parent, I really appreciate it. Chris's passion for playing guitar reflects around him. He makes it fun, joyful for my son to learn guitar and he takes into account the type of music my son likes to listen to and to play. My son told me that Chris is very inspiring for him, and motivates and encourages him at every lessons. Thank you Chris. As a pianist myself, I believe that being able to play a music instrument is a gift in a life, And you made my son love playing guitar. Thank you! Marie D (Allen,tx)

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.

Mr Eason teaches the fundamentals of vocal training including breathing and technique. The lessons are professional and challenging but fun. I am a beginner so this is exactly the type of voice lessons I wanted. If you are looking for a solid foundation in voice, I recommend Jonathan Eason.

Marshall has given our daughter music lessons for two years. He is a talented player and has a deep understanding of music. He is also an effective teacher and a friendly person. He has instilled an important creative discipline in our daughter’s life. He is able to break down the fundamentals of music in a way that she can apply knowledge to her playing. He has an intuitive knack for understanding how to guide her to learn. We feel fortunate that Marshall Isseks was recommended to us and we wholeheartedly recommend him to others interested in learning to play an instrument, understanding theory and enjoying the art.

I have had experience with other guitar teachers before, so I say this without hesitation that he is the best guitar teacher (and guitarist) out there.

About

I teach the fundamentals of guitar. If you have been trying to learn, I can help you get off in the right direction.

About

I offer only the basics. If a teacher gives more than that, the students inherit the musical style of the teacher and never develop their own style.

About

I am a professional performer and instructor. I specialize on the guitar. I play all styles of music and also have solo guitar stuff prepared. I would have to say my solo guitar material is a mix between Chet Atkins, Barney Kessel, and Andres Segovia.
