Mr. Cordell is a great teacher who has an amazing depth of knowledge when it comes to music. A formal education in music, a couple decades of experience with the guitar, and years of teaching have honed his skills and his ability to pass those on to others. I highly recommend him for players who are serious about advancing their skills or others who are looking to learn how to play overall. Practice often and you will be happy with the results.

My experience with Cordell Music has been great. He's always easy to contact, fast to respond, and flexible with my schedule. He's a very knowledgable musician, and a great teacher. I started out with basic rhythm guitar, and now I'm learning to read staff notation. Keith has been great at explaining the music theory as we go, and I've learned more than I originally anticipated. It's been a fun journey. Highly recommended!

Keith is an exceptional teacher. He is very knowledgeable about the subject matter. He does not only teach the practical side of playing guitar, but also delves into music theory. Explains in detail about why or how certain things work and is very insightful. Would definitely recommend him to anyone, only wished I took the leap sooner!

Paige is fantastic! She responds to messages quickly, she is very professional and such a great teacher. She didn’t interrupt me playing a part of music when I made mistakes, she let me try to figure it out myself and when I didn’t, she’d point it out. She’s very encouraging and patient, I would definitely recommend her to my friends if they played violin. I am new to violin, and with her I feel like I can really learn this instrument.

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.

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.

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.

I've been taking bass lessons from Jim Coley close to three years now and the experience has been nothing short of amazing. I came into it knowing absolutely nothing about bass with the exception of knowing I wanted to play. I didn't even know the note names of each open string! I'm still learning and have much to learn but I couldn't have picked a better teacher. He's patient, supportive, encourging and experienced. I came in aiming to be as well rounded as I could be and he has covered so much ground with me in a diverse curriculum spanning every genere possible. He is also more than willing to teach you songs by your favorite bands or artists. He goes above and beyond every time and has been flexible with me at every turn. Its more than worth your time and is one of the most valuable insvestments I have made since moving here. I strongly implore anyone with the desire to learn to take some cash and spend a few minutes with him and see how it goes. You'll be glad you did!

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.

Jim is a great guitar teacher He caters to exactly what you want to learn, he is well equipped to write musical arrangements in tab and official notation so you have both to learn from I teach guitar at a music school and I still study with Jim because he keeps challenging me so our lessons help me be a better teacher all around !!

If you are a novice bass player and wish to improve your skills to higher levels, Ray is the instructor for you. I’ve watched many bass videos on Youtube, but after taking lessons with Ray, I honestly feel that my knowledge is starting to supercede most experienced bass players. Ray does not only teach you how to play bass, he teaches you about music theory. Basic principles needed to enhance your playing – it’s the little things that count. That’s the info that differentiates a good bass player from a great one. I look forward to each lesson in anticipation of learning something new. Ray provides a comfortable and fun environment as you learn. If you’re hesitant or nervous about stepping out and fulfilling a long time dream, your worries are over – Ray is the one to call.

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!!!!

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.

Derek is a wonderful guy who's got a major talent for a variety of instruments and knows exactly how to connect with people of all ages. I've been learning from him for almost 2 years and I couldn't find a better guy to not only teach me how to play bass guitar but be a better person and keeping your head up high. Anyone would be honored to learn from him

Frank gave my daughter guitar lessons in our home. He was great with the basics: finger technique, chord progression, etc... But Frank also encouraged my daughter to follow her musical interests, she played what she wanted to play, in addition to the pieces that Frank believed would help her become a more technically strong guitarist. This developed her appreciation and love for playing.

Frank has taught my son guitar lessons for about 3 years. My son enjoys the lesson, and has continually progressed. Frank does a great job communicating with the parents, and has always worked with us on scheduling as well. I highly recommend Frank!

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. He is brilliant in our opinion and works great with kids. We also know several children whom are being taught by Gene and they love their guitar lessons and music training too!!

Gene is a fantastic guitar teacher. I have taken a few years of lessons from him for both electric guitar and bass guitar. He really knows his stuff. Not only will he teach you songs, but the theory necessary to truly be a guitarist. It really helps to understand what I'm playing and not just memorizing a song. Great teacher.

One of the best musicians I have ever worked with! He inspired me in so many ways with his attention to detail when it came to harmonies and detail in music composition. A truly multifaceted musician accomplished at guitar, bass, vocals and drum composition. Oh yeah, and a great trombone player...really!

About

Does your child enjoy music? If so, then it is important not to squelch that flame. If your child found an instrument that he/she truly enjoys and excels at, would you support and encourage him/her to learn that instrument? As a professional teacher, I can tell you that it is possible for anybody to learn an instrument if he/she has a good teacher, somebody to support him/her, and he/she is using his/her natural strengths. Would you like to discover the best path for your child? Within 20 minutes, a key music assessment will shine a light on the path that will give your child the best chance for a lifetime of enjoyment and benefits that come with learning an instrument. The first steps we take often determine our success. A wrong start can lead a child into a class that demands too much from a skill set that is not yet developed. All the student knows is that he/she is struggling and could feel like he/she is not talented enough to learn. The truth is that he/she is talented enough but chose a path that focused on the wrong skill set. The solution is to learn who you are and what is natural for you and use those talents first. With a single assessment, you could be sure you have helped your child put his/her best foot forward as he/she begins her path to music lessons. Are you interested in a key music assessment for your child? We don't want the testing fee to be a barrier to any child wanting to learn music. As a result, the fee is waived for children under the age of 15 years. Contact our studio right away to schedule a free assessment, and we look forward to meeting you! Key Music Center Norcross, Ga

I do guitar lessons. I am a career consultant for those trying to break into music. I provide career guidance and demo recordings.

About

I have been singing and playing guitar since I was 12 years old. I have shared stages and rubbed elbows with some very talented folks. I love the guitar but as with any undertaking, I can show you and demonstrate but it will be up to you as to how good you become. Instruction is only a quarter of what you need the rest 25% depends on your ability to absorb the lesson and practice is the other 50% of the equation so you do absorb it whether or not you understood it in my presence. We start with basics like octaves and chords, and there is no need to read music to play guitar. I can read music but to learn to play the guitar, we use tablature, and I will teach you how to read it and understand it if you don't know already. This would be guitar 101 basics which will give you all the tools you need to advance, but I'll leave guitar theory to the music professors!
