Good guy. Knows his stuff.
Paul M.
Jordan is very knowledgeable and a good teacher. You can find good guitar players that will show you how to play guitar, but Jordan is much more than that and can instruct even veteran players on how to improve their play.
Jerry E.
Great Instruction for all levels

I am in my mid-thirties and have never had any formal musical instruction until I started taking lessons with Jordan a few months ago. I was a little nervous about starting the lessons, but Jordan made me very comfortable right away. You definitely can tell he knows music inside and out. He is also very helpful about incorporating just enough music theory into each lesson, so I can expand my knowledge of theory, but not so much that I get overwhelmed. I would definitely recommend Jordan to anyone looking for a great vocal or guitar instructor.

I've been playing guitar over 40 years and teaching guitar for over 30 years and have literally taught hundreds of students. A number of other guitar instructors and professional guitarists in the Atlanta area have been former students. I've performed professionally since I was 16. I teach reading music, tab reading, chord knowledge, strumming patterns, understanding rhythm notation, fretboard knowledge, finger picking, flatpicking, learning songs, improvisation, rock, country, blues, jazz, etc. I teach at every level of playing from beginner to pro-level players.

I have been playing guitar for over 30 years—since 1987—and I'm ready to pass my knowledge and experience along to you. I teach all ages, all levels, and all styles (but my specialties are rock and blues). I am a member of Mu Phi Epsilon, the international professional music fraternity, having been initiated in 1998 at Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas, while I was attending their music education program.

I'm based in Marietta/East Cobb (just outside of Atlanta), but I'm proud to offer lessons to almost anywhere* that the internet and your computer can reach.

About Stephen

There are LOTS of guitar teachers online...believe me, I know! But I feel confident that you'll find that I am the best deal, and I also offer the most "extras"—not to mention that students will learn more under the guidance of an experienced, seasoned musician and teacher like me; I've played hund

Russ is a straight up musical genius that has decades of experience playing the guitar. He will make you think of music in an entirely different way and his unique approach to the guitar makes learning so much easier. Definitely worth it!

Jason vocally coached me during many studio sessions over the years. Not only is he an excellent musician in diverse genres, but he is patient, attentive, and communicates clearly. He knows how to give the right amount of support to help vocalists find their very best sound and style for a particular genre. I would recommend Jason for any singer looking to generally improve their voice, prepare for an audition, recording, or performance.

"Private Lessons with Blake

Not only is Blake a great teacher, but he's also a great fan of music. It shows in his personal repertoire and he's also able to draw upon a broad range of styles with his lessons.

Blake is even paced, adjusting his method and curriculum to match the students, individually. Pulling and pushing his students to be better musicians, he seems to enjoy teaching children as well as adults, on most levels of proficiency.

One of the things I appreciate most is his flexibility. He's compassionate about his student's responsibilities and obligations and works around the "real life dilemmas" that we all face, those things that keep most of us a lick or two below Hendrix."
