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.
I have really enjoyed taking lessons at Cordell Music so far. He has a good syllabus and the lessons build on one another in an understandable way.
Excellent first lesson. As an adult learning guitar, Eric's was a more holistic approach that got right into a meaningful lesson activity directly applied to the genre of music of interest to me.
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
What a great experience my son has had since starting guitar lessons at Lawrenceville-Suwanee School of Music. The staff could not be nicer or more professional. The teachers are all highly experienced, and you can just tell that they love what they do. They make the children, and the parents, feel like family. I wouldn't take my child any place else, and I would highly recommend this music school to anyone - great place!
Great teacher of guitar for my 7 year old son! Glad I found him through Thumbtack.
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.
Tyson is a gem of an instructor! My teenage son actually looks forward to practicing and going to his lessons. My son has made significant progress since he began studying with Tyson and his enthusiasm has not wavered. Tyson has truly inspired him to love music. As a parent, I have been extremely pleased with Tyson’s professionalism, courtesy, and responsiveness. Schedule a lesson right now; you won’t be disappointed.
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.
very patient, professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.
I teach the fundamentals of guitar. If you have been trying to learn, I can help you get off in the right direction.
I prefer to talk to clients firsthand. I want to be able to tailor you with lesson(s) around your personal goals and the type of music you love to play.
I share 55 years of experience in six-string guitars and 40 years under a steel. I prefer students who are beginners or a little higher. You will need the best comfortable guitar you can afford. I would like to know the make and model of your guitar. If you prefer an electric, bring ONLY the guitar. I have plenty of amps. I am not an exponent of one style of music; instead I teach you the basics so you can easily play any style you like. I expect you to practice 15 - 30 minutes a day, 7 days a week. Why? Well, you won't learn guitar from me: you'll learn it from YOU. Those times when you start applying what I teach you is where you start making that guitar your own. You also need regular practice to toughen the 4 fingertips of your left hand. Rate: $50 per hour or part thereof, delivered at my home 121 Hampshire Ct, Avondale Estates, 30002, Saturdays at 2pm, and only there. Let me know if these terms suit you. We'll have fun! Our book is Jerry Snyder's Guitar School, ISBN 10: 088284-901-8 Please bring $6.50 on your first day for your book. Wade Medlock
I work hard to understand my students and not just see them as another number.
I do guitar lessons. I am a career consultant for those trying to break into music. I provide career guidance and demo recordings.
There is a difference between a great musician and a great teacher, explains the studios music director Bill Realbuto, and we only hire instructors that are both. We offer a unique blend of traditional teaching methods with modern techniques. Our curriculum is designed to be fun and inspiring. With a menu of classes, recitals, and workshops to chose from, students can have a complete musical experience.
I provide beginner guitar lessons that are fun and tailored to each individual student's abilities and skill level. There is no sight reading necessary!
I am not just trying to get a paycheck. I have a genuine interest in every student I have ever taught. I want them to progress and to grow an appreciation for the instrument. I look at each student's progress as a reflection of my ability as a teacher.
My services are significantly cheaper than most people trying to give lessons and my hours are a lot more flexible than most. In addition, I can teach a variety of stringed instruments and have extensive knowledge on music theory.
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.
