Aidan A. Acworth, GA

Aidan was born with music in his blood. Born to parents Eric and Nila Alexander, classical music was being played for him even before he was born, as both of his parents are classically trained musicians. They are life-long professional musicians who both received post-graduate musical education in Boston. Aidan began his musical journey around the age of 3, when he was taught piano from his mother. He sang in Mom’s choirs the moment he was old enough, and listened to 10 years of his sister’s Suzuki violin lessons. He continued playing piano, listening to music, and singing until the age of 12, when he received his first guitar. He couldn’t get enough, and had the musical background and intense practice schedule that caused his playing ability to shoot up very quickly. That year he had advanced enough in his guitar playing to join his teen church band, in which he played for several years. After attending a summer jazz camp, he received a talent scholarship for the ...

John C. Dallas, GA

Electric Guitar lessons are very similar to the acoustic guitar lessons. I believe that the foundations of techniques are vital to expanding your skill level.

In Electric Guitar lessons there will be more time spend on developing knowledge of scales and notes and how they coincide with chord progressions. For beginners it will start at the very basics of chromatic scales and finger placements and for the intermediate player the lessons will reinforce basic techniques and expand further into different scale variations and solos. Intermediates will work on the speed and timing of their left hand and will be able to jump in on any jam session with awesome solos for any key.

About John

I have played/studied guitar for almost 15 years. As a musician I have been a part of several different bands and have played at venues all over the southeast. As a teacher I have been giving lessons for almost 10 years and have been very successful in developing techniques and strategies to enhance the skills of beginner and intermediate guitar players. I am actively involved with the event Lutheran Happening of The South for 10 years where I have served as a Musician and Director. From 2004 to 2006 I served as the lead guitarist for the Lassiter High School FCA. I studied and learned the ins and outs of music theory while I was a member of the National Championship Lassiter High School Marching band for four years. In college I was a member of the Wesley Foundation ...

I had the great pleasure of being able to play guitar with John at Lutheran Happening of the South this past Labor Day weekend. It was my first time playing guitar at Happening and I needed to learn the ropes. John was busy both playing music while also being a director for the weekend, but he still made time to practice the songs with me. The music and the entire weekend came together splendidly. If you're looking for a great guitar instructor, you've come to the right web page.

I took lessons with John for a year and a half.

After I bought my first guitar my parents suggested I take lessons. I did not really know what to expect from taking lessons and honestly I did not think I would get very much out of it. I was wrong...

John is a great guitar teacher because he does not do cookie cutter lessons. Each week my lessons were tailored to my goals and progress.

During my first lesson John spent extra time with me talking about what I wanted to get out of guitar lessons, and together we wrote down daily, weekly, and monthly goals (my parents really appreciated this because I started doing this with everything and I am now in college and do this with my classes). For me, music was kind of like a different language but John was able to explain things to me in a simplified way so I could really grasp the concepts.

The first 2 to 3 lessons I worked on basic chords and strum patterns and the techniques I learned jump started my abilities. I exceeded my first month goals and it was not long before I was playing along to a few of my favorite songs. Once I got down the basic chords and strum patterns I learned scales, complex chords, and how to read music and tabs.

If you are really wondering what learning guitar is like, I will tell you that it is difficult and frustrating. My favorite thing about having John as a teacher is that he would call me once a week in between my lessons to see how I was doing, answer questions, and talk through my frustrations. He does this with all of his students and it was evident to myself and my parents that John truly does care about helping his students meet their goals.

I don't think you will come across many guitar teachers like this. Anytime I come across a family member or friend who wants to learn guitar or has a child who wants to learn guitar I send them right over to John.

I highly recommend John to anyone looking for a guitar teacher who will absolutely help you to become a better musician.
Jody B. Carrollton, GA

I've been playing guitar for over forty years and love helping students reach their personal musical goals. I've studied with award-winning players and never stop improving my own skills. I want my students to enjoy music. After all, this is supposed to be fun!

Each student is different and requires a different approach. We will establish your goals for playing and begin the journey to make those musical goals a reality.

About Jody

I'm a retired teacher who has played guitar for 40+ years. I'm a fingerstyle guitarist and perform at weddings and special events. I've taught most styles to all ages. I'm probably not the one to teach your teenager to play heavy metal, however. I do teach ingerpicking, country, classical, pop, and even Hawaiian slack key. I specialize in beginning children and adults. I also teach mountain dulcimer and ukulele. With children, I use a method book to teach music fundamentals and balance that by encouraging the child to learn to play songs that interest him/her. With adults, I want to teach what you're interested in learning. I believe we learn best when we are excited by the material and challenged to reach the next level. I have taught special needs music students - ...

Mastering Guitar Finger Placement
When you're learning how to play the guitar, it's crucial to form good habits.
