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.

Taking violin lessons (and now viola) with Paige. It's been a much better experience for me than my first time trying to learn violin. I appreciate that she's willing to adapt her lessons to my own goals and also select music that is actually pleasing to listen to even for an absolute beginner. As some other reviews mentioned, she's also very quick to reply to any messages.

My husband and I knew when we walked into Teal Justice's piano office and shook her hand that she was the right choice for us. It wasn't just the gorgeous piano note curtains or flute lamp; it wasn't how professional her specific lesson plans appeared; and it wasn't how incredibly well she played the piano for us! It was a combination of everything. Our two daughters are ages 11 and 15, and they have been taking weekly piano lessons from Teal Justice for almost one year now. They never had any formal instruction, and we are completely amazed by how far they have come in only a year. Friends and family are shocked by how they can play the piano in only ONE YEAR! Teal Justice is very patient with beginners. She's also very experienced teaching children. She has a way of making them feel very comfortable next to her at the piano. Our daughters love practicing everyday, and we love hearing their music. We feel so fortunate to have her as our children's teacher. We highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning how to play piano (or flute!).

I took voice lessons with him for a show that was six weeks away and there has been notable improvements. I was able to sing most of my notes in a range that was not mine, which is incredible because I was once not able to hit most of my notes. He does specialize in musical theatre; so, if anyone needs help specifically with auditions and shows, he is your man. He does have a strong history with musical theatre and does both acting and singing. Even though my show is over, I still continue to take lessons with him, looking for other songs to audition with and to learn just for fun. He's very down to earth and understands the voice very well. He is also flexible with timing. I am a college student at a school almost 50 minutes away and he completely understands my busy schedule. He also is fairly cheap and very understanding financially. Other good voice teachers can charge up to 70 dollars an hour, so this was a very good deal in my opinion. I do not attend school for musical theatre, I just do it as a hobby, but working with him helps fuel my passion for it. If anyone is looking for vocal/acting help and loves musical theatre (both professionally and for fun), he is a great resource.

Michael is a sweet and professional teacher. I have taken 3 vocal lessons with him so far and all of them were awesome. He could pin point my weakness and design specific vocal exercise to improve me. All of his explanations are comprehensible and his excercises are achievable. I can see my progress everyday class and I will definitely recommend him to my friends.

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.

Eric has been my 11 year old daughter's guitar teacher for several years. We can't imagine taking guitar from anyone else. He is laid back, kind, and easy to work with. He's funny and relates both to kids and adults. Eric always tries to find music my daughter enjoys and mixes her lessons up so it never gets mundane. If we need a make up, he's more than accommodating. I cannot sing his praises enough!

Verified review

Every review says as much about the person reviewing as it does the business reviewed. Olga is a conscientious and professional piano and voice teacher and I highly recommend her. A bad review is telegraphing that the person writing it has specific things that set them off. Sometimes these are fair and then the review reads as sensible. Typing a bad review in ALL CAPS is not sensible. The person comes across as obnoxious and at best, as fussy when focused on things most people consider unfair, like free lessons. Unless it is someone who shares the same issue, when someone like that writes a bad review the only person he or she is pushing away is someone LIKE THEM. So in that respect, they're doing the place a favor because they are aborting another bad review. Most of us read multiple reviews and can sort the rational voices from the angry ones. I am a parent of two boys and I have to say that $20 for quality one-on-one (private) 30 minute music lessons is too cheap. This is especially true if the teacher has several university degrees. Yes Olga gives us a discounted rate for my younger son but I do not expect her to teach for free. I am yet to see a teacher giving a $20 private lesson and free lesson for the 2nd child. To do it once perhaps, but that deal would be too good to be true to sustain long term. Not only would the teacher soon go out of business but it is unfair to the parents who are paying a higher but fair rate. In this day and age that is not a fair price for a qualified music teacher. However, $20 for a group lesson of 4 or 5 kids would make sense. My boys were able to read notes from their first piano lesson and are able to interpret a piece of music. Their lessons include scales, arpeggios, classic pieces, aural testing, sight reading and music theory. She is currently preparing my eldest son for the grade 1 Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) Exam. I can say she has gone above and beyond what previous piano teachers have delivered, even extending the lesson time by 5 or 10 minutes if needed. She was more focused on my boys understanding the concept than anything else. In fact and she spaced our lessons so they do not overlap giving me ample time to discuss any concerns. Our experience has been that we get more than what we pay for at each lesson. No one should have to work for free. The effort Olga makes in teaching our boys correct finger posture, rhythm and theory is incredible. She is great with kids and I could not ask for a better teacher.

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! Happy Shredding! -Andrew Briggs

I decided I wanted to learn how to play guitar at the age of 54, and I knew I needed an experienced teacher. I heard Ryan play at a club in Roswell and he was fantastic. Then I submitted my request on thumbtack, and he was the first guitar teacher to contact me. I've been taking weekly lessons from him since August 2013 and I am very pleased with how it is going. I went from knowing nothing about the guitar to being able to play over 20 chords and two songs since we started. Ryan is an excellent teacher and has also become a friend. He is a great guy and I highly recommend him if you want to take guitar lessons.

For the last few years, I've had the pleasure of accompanying Suzanne's students at their spring voice recitals. Her students are all different ages and personalities, and from a vocal perspective, they also vary in their musical training and skill level. For each student, she knows exactly what to do to bring out the best in them. I've come to admire Suzanne's extensive musical background and repertoire -- she teaches a variety of song styles with ease. The accompaniment I've provided has ranged from the classics to Broadway to everything in between. Speaking of the classics, outside of English I've heard her students sing in German, Italian, Latin ... and probably one or two other languages I can't think of right now. Suzanne challenges her students in such a way that lessons are fun as well as instructive. In addition to the mechanics, she works with students on memorization, presentation, stage presence and recital etiquette. In addition to that - for the more adventurous students - Suzanne comes up with some awesome choreography! Highly recommend!!

For context, I'm a 30 year old male software engineer who's never taken voice lessons before. First, I'll just say that Dan is a phenomenal instructor. Before I found Dan, I had been trying to teach myself to sing via on-line, pre-recorded lessons for probably half a year. I had convinced myself I didn't need voice lessons because I'm a successful self-taught guitarist and drummer, but after *really* trying to improve and getting frustrated with my lack of results I decided to suck it up and pay for a coach. I found Dan and after working with him twice a week for 5 months now I am literally astonished at the amount of improvement I've made. Full disclosure, I don't even practice between lessons anymore because the quality of his live feedback is so on-point that I'm more than happy with the results I see from those two live sessions. YMMV with that approach though! Dan has been doing this a long time, and has helped me achieve really great results in such a short period of time. I promise he's worth the money. Plus he's a really great guy and has a dog that's there for every lesson.

Great teaching skills, terrific practice instructions, good ear, vested in his students' improvements, flexible in suggesting new approaches, personable, efficient, each lesson is packed with information and instruction. Can't be happier to have found him. Highly recommend him to anyone serious in learning to sing.

Alex worked voice with me and piano with my young daughter. She has a genuine talent for sharing her passion and experience in music. I consider her my "coach" more than anything while she is definitely a "teacher" when it comes to my daughter. This demonstrates her adaptability in meeting the needs of each, individual student. She is also very accommodating with regards to schedule and goals. Like anything, you get what you give. Alex is patient and understanding when life isn't providing much time for personal practice. She balances that with passionate encouragement that makes you look forward to your next lesson and motivates you to be prepared.

Elideusa has been an amazing instructor, she has really helped me build on not just my confidence as a singer but with the overall strength in my voice.

After enrolling my 4 yr old daughter in group piano lessons, I quickly saw that she was interested in learning more. The decision to move to private lessons was an easy one after a trial lesson with Andria Rush. Andria is an EXCELLENT piano teacher. She was able to quickly bond with my sometimes shy 4 yr old , make her comfortable in a new environment , and constantly inspire her to learn and stay engaged/challenged. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Riverside Voice and Piano. In addition to being a superb teacher, Andria has a warm and loving personality! There is nothing not to like about her services. I am extremely particular about any environment my child is immersed in and naturally the people she is around. Riverside Voice and Piano is a win win all around!

Derek Ferwerda is an incredible instructor. I've been a student of Derek's for many years, and the quality of instruction and the incredible amount of love he has for teaching and his students is unparalleled, and something you won't find anywhere else in the world; let alone the Southeast... I originally began with Derek as a guitar player, but after a while working with guitar he helped me find that bass guitar was my true calling. Since I began working with Derek as an amateur musician and just a kid with a dream, I have gone on to play in many local bands, record with other artists, and I've had the opportunity to share stages with some of the most incredible musicians you'll ever come across. What sets the Guitar Room apart from other schools is Derek's linguistic approach to learning and teaching music, and the very warm, loving, welcoming environment I have found with his community of students. He has an incredible dedication to his students, and will do anything and everything to help them reach their highest potential. When you come to the Guitar Room, you will find not only an incredibly talented and dedicated mentor and instructor, you will also find an incredibly supportive community of students and musicians that will embrace you or your child, and help them reach their potential as musicians and people. I couldn't recommend Derek Ferwerda and The Guitar Room any more. You won't find better anywhere!!!!

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!!

Derek is a number #1 when it comes to the music world. If you need instrument lessons from bass, guitar, drums - he’s the guy that’ll get you to where you want to be. You’ll learn from the ear and he’ll show you the way. I learned from hearing a song and playing it. After awhile I could hear what I was supposed to play. Derek has a great heart and will make you feel welcomed into a group of students & friends that’ll show you what they’ve learned and even jam together. Derek is a long time friend and mentor. I’d never need to go anywhere else to learn.

I am currently in college, but from Kindergarten through 12th grade, I took lessons with Ms. Vera. I will admit that my enthusiasm for piano waned a little when I hit the pre-teens, but Ms. Vera continued to encourage me and I truly think it was because of her that I managed to stick with piano-and I am glad I did. With Ms. Vera, once you learn the basics, you can pursue anything from a classical music education to simply learning your favorite songs that you would like to be able to play on the piano. No matter the song-Ms. Vera always looks through a plethora of resources to find me what I want. Most importantly, however, she is one of the sweetest, encouraging, and intelligent people I have ever met! You will not regret taking lessons with her!

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.
