Charlie has been teaching acoustic guitar to my 13 year old son for 7 years. He is an excellent instructor that is very patient with beginners. My son has made great progress in these 7 years and has expanded his lessons to include piano and dobro which Charlie has supported and instructed him in also. I would recommend Charlie to instruct any beginners in guitar, piano or dobro.

I have been one of Suzanne's guitar students for several years in an evening group lesson situation at a local high school. I like Suzanne's enthusiasm and creativity in a lesson environment. I also admire how quickly she can deconstruct a song and make it playable for the class. Suzanne does an excellent job of balancing learning new songs and teaching the theory behind them without slowing down the fun. Her students seem to quickly pick up the guitar and enjoy playing it almost from day one. I especially like that there is "no fault" if an adult student has trouble finding time to practice between lessons. Of course, without practice, it is hard to improve quickly. Sometimes we work on a song that isn't one I'd choose. But this exposes me to other music genres and provides new learning elements. Suzanne asks us for input of which songs we'd like to learn, so the occassional "dud" song isn't really a problem. As the skills of the class continue to improve, it might be interesting to have class members bring a song to discuss/improve with input from their peers and Suzanne - think of a writer's workshop. For a fun guitar lesson experience, I highly recommend Suzanne.

About

Have you ever desired to play Beethoven's Fur Elise of Sonatas, the Theme to Star Wars or Harry Potter, or just Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star? Have you ever wanted a talent that will relieve stress, dazzle others, or enable you to play what you hear on the radio? You want to learn the piano, or give a child the gift of music that will last a lifetime. I can help. I teach beginning piano to all ages. The first lesson is a free trial, so the student can evaluate my teaching. I can also teach viola lessons. I can also refer the students to more advanced (and expensive) teachers when they are past the point that I can teach them. I also play the pipe organ for Tabernacle Baptist in Raleigh and accompany 3 choirs on piano and organ.
