Wes F. Atlanta, GA

I studied classical guitar on the college level. For those interested, I can supply needed instruction on classical guitar technique, reading, and performance.

About Wes

I studied classical guitar and composition at Asbury College and later more in depth guitar studies rock, jazz, and classical at the Atlanta Institute of Music. I have been teaching steadily for the past ten years as well as spending my time with various other musical projects such as leading worship for my church, performing for various parties and weddings, and composing and recording music for a short film. I use my experience and broad understanding of music to inform the way that I teach, so that my students have a robust experience of all aspects of music. *** Lesson Details *** I have a lesson plan that I follow for beginning students to get them through the basics. As a teacher I am laid back, and positive, but always try to give the student a clear reflection of how they are ...

Wes has been teaching my son, age 7, for four months now and we could not be happier! He manages to be very informative while keeping it fun and interesting without being silly or boring. Wes's enthusiasm for the guitar is contagious. I am thrilled with my son's progress and level of continued interest. Thank you Wes!

Wes is a great teacher -he has a lot of experience and excellent technique. It is evident he loves music/guitar and is equally as passionate for teaching what he loves. He makes learning to play the guitar easy to grasp and he is very patient and encouraging. Looking forward to more jam sessions!

Excellent Instructor

Wes is an excellent instructor. He is patient, clear, encouraging, fun, and totally professional. I highly recommend him to anyone (young or old) wanting to learn the guitar.

Wes listens to what the student wants to learn and sets his lessons to help the student achieve their goals. Our lessons are in the instructor's studio, which is a safe, accessible, and clean environment.

I look forward to our future sessions and continuing my guitar learning under his instruction.

About Jimmy

With over 30 years experience as a professional guitar instructor, I have been actively teaching lessons in Henry County, GA as well as Clayton County, GA. I had actually started teaching friends as a teenager since 1976 where I grew up in N.Y. and those friends are still to this day professional musicians. I started teaching guitar professional in 1983. Over the years I've had the pleasure of teaching hundreds of students at every skill level, and what a joy that has been for me. I teach several styles of playing: Rock, Jazz, Blues, Country, Funk, Rhythm & Lead guitar playing, Classical guitar and Fingerstyle playing. I teach on electric & acoustic guitar. I have one basic philosophy in my approach to teaching: get the student to fall in love with the guitar so it becomes a ...

Rick L. Grayson, GA

Proper left and right hand technique is taught in order to prepare the student for the demands of classical guitar playing. I teach through the Christopher Parkening guitar method books and the Shearer Method books. I always supplement the student with repertoire pieces to play while going through a structured method book. I teach the student how to be musical and to interpret music that is in standard notation.
