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.
I am retired and have little to no experience playing a musical instrument but have always wanted to play guitar. Eric is very patient and can adapt to anyone's musical level and talent. Blues, Rock, Jazz he cuts a wide path as far as his musical knowledge and is very adept at passing that on to his students. A "Rock" solid instructor!
Our son began lessons with Ryan 5 years ago,after becoming bored and stagnant with his previous teacher of 2 years.With a child that was very talented and serious at pursuing a possible music career,we really wanted to make sure he had the best teacher for him that pushed him and challenged him but at the same time did it in a way that would encourage him, not discourage him.Because our son was easily bored,we also needed a teacher that could teach many different styles or genres,knew theory and could teach sight reading and was able to move at whatever pace was needed to challenge our son.Ryan worked on rock,blues jazz and classical guitar,sight reading ear training, song writing skills, improvisation only to name a few,but above all taught him to work hard and never give up.He helped him prepare for a very challenging audition to get into a very competitive music college, Belmont University. Ryan made sure that when the audition came up, our son was ever so confident when his audition time came up and was totally prepared in every possible way.Through the years,our son developed a strong sense of trust and friendship that he has been able to use as he is in college as a sophomore.While in college,our son will periodically still rely on Ryan for his professional views on different challenges. He also looks forward to breaks and summers to get together with Ryan and play,learn and get advice.It was never about Ryan making his fee,but about making sure our son was pushed during every lesson to the best of his abilities.Even if it meant staying over a few minutes or calling during the week to check and make sure he was able to work at the music homework he had given and was not frustrated.We highly recommend Ryan Strickland. He is a very professional dedicated musician that loves his job and will go over and beyond for all of his students. We feel as parents that Ryan pushed our son to help him fulfill his utmost dreams and passion and realize there are no limits.
I am loving it!!! Mrs. Pam is great and I am learning to play the guitar but more importantly I am learning to read music!!! Best decision I could have made...it's never too late!!!
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!
Chris is very patient, and knows his stuff. He has great insight into beginning guitar and can really help anyone that is looking to learn develop good habits and pick up the basics quickly. He has a very pleasant and friendly demeanor and is always very supportive even when you are slow to pick up on a technique. As a very basic beginner, Chris has accelerated my learning curve significantly. His simplified approach to teaching me guitar has led me to really want to learn and given me the confidence to believe I can. No book required, Chris uses the music you like and teaches you to play the songs you really want to jam. No Mary Had a Little Lamb here. Thanks Chris!!!
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.
When my daughter decided she wanted to play the guitar, I happened upon Tyson Farmer's website and decided to give him a try. Since Day 1, he's been engaging and encouraging. My daughter tends to be shy, but she quickly warmed up to Tyson. She often tells me how funny he is. She is excited to go to her weekly lessons and is showing great confidence in her abilities. I am very happy with our 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 !!
My son has been taking guitar lessons from Ms. Arrington for almost 2 years, and he loves them. She is patient, supportive, very friendly, and obviously loves what she does. In his case, she endorses his uniqueness while teaching him the basics he needs to maximize his personal style.
very patient, professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.
Barry was my first and only guitar teacher! I started when I was 14 and I stayed with him until I was 17. ( I should've never quit, but he keeps up with me to this day). He is an awesome teacher and very patient and laid back. I loved my guitar sessions and learning not only the basics of guitar but playing music I loved. I definitely recommend him as a teacher.
WE have hired Mr Wallace for our twins piano lessons. He is a wonderful teacher, very calm, poised, patient and very knowledgeable. The twins have playing now long pieces since he started with them few months ago. WE WOULD TOTALLY RECOMMEND MR WALLACE FOR ANY PIANO LESSONS. I n addition, Mr. Wallace has gracefully agreed to come to our home to offer the lessons. He is also always on time and in great spirit. Thank you Mr Wallace: Charles and Charlotte Sow and their parents :) :) :) THUMBS UP
I have had experience with other guitar teachers before, so I say this without hesitation that he is the best guitar teacher (and guitarist) out there.
I eat, sleep, and breathe guitar. I dream about playing the guitar and I have more experience playing guitar and writing songs than anything else in my life.
We offer professional guitar lessons. Lessons are customized for each student's needs. We teach all styles and levels of ability.
I do guitar lessons. I am a career consultant for those trying to break into music. I provide career guidance and demo recordings.
I am a guitar instructor. I teach solo performance, classic rock band, solo jazz guitar, guitar improvisation and fingerstyle.I can come to your house, or you can come to mine.I have proven methods to get you where you want to be.
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.
