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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

Gene has been teaching guitar lessons to my son for five years now. He is always on time, and often stays longer than our scheduled lesson time if my son needs additional help from him. He is extremely knowledgable about every aspect of the guitar and theory. He teaches every genre, improvisation, and songwriting. I would recommend Gene Hilbert to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar!

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!!

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.

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.

When my grandson expressed an interest in playing the guitar, I began my search for guitar lessons. In my search, I found the Childbloom Guitar Program North East Georgia. During my first conversation with Mr. Derwyn Browne, the Director and teacher of the Childbloom Guitar Program, I had a great feeling that this was the beginning of something big for my grandson and I was right. The Childbloom style of teaching a student to play the guitar is an amazing program. Mr. Browne is a very patient and kind teacher and he displays his great love for music to his students. He does a great job of teaching the children how to play the guitar, while instilling in them the importance of learning proper technique in their fingering and playing. My grandson has been taking lessons in the Childbloom Guitar Program for 3 years and his skill level has definitely increased during that time period. He is being taught how to read music along with music theory and is becoming a wonderful guitar player. I have no regrets in enrolling my grandson in this guitar program and he is having a great learning experience, while growing his skills and mastering the guitar.

Stephen is very knowledgeable and knows multiple genres. If you have something in mind he'll learn it and print out tabs for you. As someone who's been playing for 21 years he still challenges me.
