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 took my first guitar lessons ever with Ryan, and he was an awesome teacher. He was patient with me and taught me all the basics with lots of helpful tips and advice. Ryan is a friendly teacher and willing to work with you on whatever you want to improve or learn about guitar!

Greg is a fantastic drum teacher with tons of experience. He is very patient and willing to work with you. He definitely values quality and wants to make sure you sound great. Meaning he isn't in it for you just to play fast, but to play well. He started me off going over some of the basic rudiments, and then we worked on a few songs. We eventually worked up to a song that I set my sights on playing. His schedule is very flexible and has even helped outside of class when I had quick questions. If you are looking to get started or a long-time drummer I highly recommend.

Greg is awesome, I am so glad I had him for my first drum lesson experience. He is polite, friendly, and most of all inspirational. He is also patient in light of me being very much a beginner. I felt like the lessons were top notch quality - I was already playing beats and even a song on my first session. I recommend Greg as your drum teacher.

Mr Washington is a great teacher. We hired him to provide drum lessons for a young man at our church. We have seen awesome growth in a fairly short period of time. He is very skilled, knowledgeable and patient with his students. If you have a child that desires to play drums or if you desire to play drums, you can find no greater teacher.

We were fortunate to find Abdala as an instructor for our son who showed an aptitude for drumming very early. Abdala is not only a highly skilled drummer, he is a kind, patient, and organized natural teacher who set high standards for his students and helps them achieve them. He understands what motivates students and we all loved and appreciated his strategy and techniques. He provided much positive feedback and earnest advice on how to improve skills. He introduced our son to genres of music, world music, and drumming styles that he has grown to love. His favorite moments in his lessons were, after learning a challenging new skill, Abdala would reward him with a fun break in which they put on their headphones and listened to a piece of music and drum together side-by-side. Our son learned a lot from those impromptu moments. Abdala is a first rate teacher and we are grateful for the kind and thoughtful instruction he gave our son.

Abdala is a fantastic teacher that I took lessons with when I was the age of 16 through the age of 18. He was able to effectively take me, student who had been playing for 6 years, and bring me back to the basics and enhance where I was at the time. Through Abdala's lessons, I was able to learn the skills necessary to get into Berklee College of Music on a scholarship. Highly recommended for anyone who is seeking to learn the art of percussion the right way!

Abdala is a gifted, professional teacher. He isn't just a drum instructor, he's a teacher of music. I was an older student who had never played drums; or, know how to read music. Through his encouragement and patience, I was reading music and playing the drums within a year. I highly recommend Abdala.

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.

Derek knows his students and tailors his lessons accordingly. He's not just a guitar instructor; he's more like a music life coach helping with technique, new habits, songwriting tips and band arrangement. It's a very open and laid back environment and you don't even realize what you are learning while it's happening. Very intuitive approach. I highly recommend a visit.

I'm new still - Donny and I have had a couple of lessons - and so far, it's great! He is clearly experienced and educated, and he looks to customize to my learning style. Going great, looking forward to our next lesson already. And I can't wait to practice what I learned in today's lesson - I wish my work day would hurry up and end so I can go play!

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 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!

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.

Smok did a great job cultivating our sons natural abilities and we felt safe with his direction of our 8 year old. He was on time, professional, patient and made the lessons fun. I would recommend Smok to anyone wanting lessons as he has the ability to tailor them to any age. His industry and musical background were very helpful to the growth of my sons experience.
