About Jimmy
I have over 30 years experience as a professional guitar instructor and have been actively teaching lessons in Henry County, GA as well as Clayton County, GA. And have branched out to teach online as well. I had actually started teaching friends as a teenager since 1976 where I grew up in N.Y. and those friends still play guitar to this day, a couple have become 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.

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 life-long pass
ion. As an instructor, I endeavor to make guitar lessons fun, practical and productive!!! Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, advanced or even at the professional level, I can help you advance your playing skills.

I've had a wonderful experience with Jim, and plan on continuing my weekly lessons with him. His methodology is logical and straightforward, his personality is open-minded, affable, and he's quite the prodigy when it comes to his skill level on guitar. He can fluidly change from a bluesy twang to a warm jazz sound, and switch to a nostalgic riff on the acoustic guitar at a moment's notice. He is everything I could ask for in a teacher, and in the short month that I've been taught by him, my learning curve has steepened with every visit. I'm learning so much from this guy and recommend anyone with an interest in guitar to pursue taking lessons from this guy before everyone else with the right idea books him first!
Sincerely,
An eager pupil

One of my favorite styles of music to teach, perform, and write music in! Love the soul in this style of music! Teach all levels.

About David
A fun, friendly, and professional Music Instructor at your service for Voice, Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums, & Ukulele! I have a BA degree from Florida Atlantic University in Music Performance for Classical/Flamenco/Jazz/Blues guitar and I've also performed on the Piano/Keyboards for a couple different bands too. Love to play & teach pretty much all styles of music! It is always a pure joy & truly rewarding to see my music students grow and flourish in their musical abilities. I have been enjoying doing this now for 20+ years- all ages & levels. I am also in a multi-dimensional rock project and a recording artist with my band Vision.

I believe it's important to learn the rudiments of music to build a good foundation (scales, chord vocabulary, theory, song-composition, performing techniques), but I also base the lessons on whatever th
e interests and strengths are for the student. For example, if you enjoy jazz more than classical we'll focus more on what you are particularly passionate about. I have also been a part of School of Rock Programs in which we provided performances for the students a la Jack Black. Please contact Takelessons to let the musical journey begin...

My husband and I just had our first few lessons with Trevor and we couldn’t recommend him more. As a high school band director who is a guitar beginner, I think that Trevor is a fantastic teacher. He makes music and guitar fun, ensures you feel successful in each lesson, and is teaching quality information in a very logical order and pace.

I've taken a couple of lessons from Trevor so far and they have been awesome. I've taken lessons from about 7 or 8 instructors in my lifetime and he is definitely one of, if not the best.
The thing that makes Trevor stand out to me is that he took the time to get to know what I wanted to learn and to figure out how I like to learn. He comes prepared to the lessons with material, answers any questions I have during the week by email and has worked with me to develop a specific education plan to meet my goals.
I suggest taking a trial lesson with this guy to see if you're on the same page. I am definitely not going anywhere else while I live in Austin.

I have been teaching guitar professionally for over 4 years in the Atlanta area. As a recent graduate of Kennesaw State University with a degree in Jazz Guitar Performance, I have developed a deep love for music and the guitar which I thoroughly enjoy sharing with my students. I currently teach and perform, traveling across the United States with various groups performing a multitude of genres, all of which I love teaching and sharing with eager students! I was not a "natural" guitarist, so I have a great method for making guitar/music make sense so that all of my students can be successful. I look forward to working with you!

About Patrick
I am a professional guitarist, composer, and educator living in the Greater Atlanta Area. I started playing guitar while in high school at Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School. I owe a lot of my success to my time spent here as this school is consistently ranked one of the top schools in the nation.
I wasn't a "naturally gifted' musician, so if you are just starting out don't worry! I've been there and I have picked up a lot of tips and tricks along the way to help you out!
After high school, I decided to further pursue my passion for music and was accepted to Kennesaw State University as a Jazz Performance Major. Shortly after arriving in Kennesaw I began performing all over Atlanta as a sideman in various groups and even started a few groups of my own. I have had some great opportunities to tour and travel across the United States playing
music, it is a really great feeling.I was a recipient of the GA Music Hall of Fame Talent Award in 2014 where I performed on national television for the first time. In 2016 I recorded an album with a good friend of mine, Morgan Guerin, entitled "The Saga" which reached #3 on the iTunes Jazz Charts on the first day of its release.

I have recently graduated from KSU with my Jazz Degree and have been teaching and performing extensively. Teaching has been a very rewarding part of my life, it has given me the opportunity to learn and grow as a musician in ways that performing simply cannot compete with. I really look forward to working with you and being a part of your musical journey!

Chris and I live in different states, and we use Skype for our lessons. It is working out great. His schedule has been flexible, and he plans our lessons around my hectic schedule. I am a beginner, and Chris is patient, positive, and encouraging. His teaching style and personality are great. He makes me feel calm, and relaxed during our lessons. I always look forward to my next session. He is an excellent person and instructor, and I highly recommend guitar lessons from Chris.

Chris was my favorite teacher by far this year. I actually went to about 6 different teachers in town.
But none of them were giving me the info I was looking for most of them seemed bored. But Chris is my teacher for life he made everything fun, easy
And actually gave me absolutely everything i was looking for. If there was a certain song part I wanted to learn he would either know it already. Or would learn it for me specifically then teach me in a way that was easier than say a youtube video. He knows like hundreds of songs off the top of his head... Crazy!
Thanks again chris
See ya next week!!

With over 10 years of musical experience in acoustic/electric guitar and bass guitar I work with your level of experience and help pinpoint areas that need more work and adjust the material accordingly while providing a balanced learning experience without overloading.

About Harold
Hi! My name is Harold! This year (2018 ) is my first year teaching. I graduated from Parkview High School in Lilburn, GA where I was part of the music tech and intermediate guitar programs. Apart from that I have over 10 years of musical experience in acoustic/electric guitar, as well as bass guitar; I am prepared to work with individuals who present varying levels of skill and training as well as diversity in personal goals and musical interests.

I intend to help students in finding their own musical talent and style by recognizing individual strengths and building upon them, helping to pinpoint specific areas that may benefit from improvement, and adjusting the material accordingly. My primary goal is to assist students in realizing their particular creative potential by providing a balanced and supportive learning environment with
lessons that are flexible to individual needs and which will not lead to the negative feelings associated with overload, quite commonly experienced in the pursuit of musical knowledge and instruction.
