John is very patient and knowledgeable. You can tell that he's been teaching for a very long time. I'm self-taught and have been playing for over 20 years and within minutes of viewing me play, John was able to pick out immediately my flaws. He gives me homework every week, and gives me a hard time if I do not do it. Exactly what I look for in a teacher.

Clayton is a lovely person and a great teacher. He always shows up on time if not early and communicates right away if there is a change in the schedule which is rare. He is great with children, very patient and kind with a fun upbeat attitude. I definitely recommend him.

Charlie P.

Charlotte, NC

Learn the basics from good posture, all the notes on the fretboard and how to play in tempo. Lots of chord and an easy way to think about playing. Also, I'll help you learn how to be as creative as possible!

About Charlie

I have been passing on what I've learned in my own studies, personal and privately taught, to help new students get the strong foundations for becoming the best musician they can be. I've been playing since age 6 (now 44) and performing since 18. I started with Classical guitar, then Rock and Jazz. In all my years of study, I've learned how to teach and how NOT to teach. I have had many years of private lessons. I've written, recorded and performed for over 20 years. My wife and I even do voice over work on occasion. *** Lesson Details *** Students have become friends and I've seen many go on to become performers, songwriters and teachers. I also use a wide range of materials when teaching like DVDs, CDs, and computer 'play along' tracks. I love teaching, seeing people smile and ...

Awesome

Charlie is not only a great teacher, but a great guy. he is fun and easy to be around, creating a relaxing environment for learning. Everything i know how to do on bass was made possible by Charlie. He is slow with the process and makes sure not to rush you and makes sure you understand 100% of the material before moving on. He is simply awesome.

Joey R.

Charlotte, NC

We work on techniques in using a pick, and basics with left-hand technique. For Intermediate players, often I find students hit the "wall" and feel that they are not improving. This is when a teacher is crucial, and we begin to transition from practicing 'hard' to practicing 'smart'. We introduce a more focused approach to practice.

About Joey

“Joey has done a good job working with my son, Nicholas, on his guitar playing. Despite my son’s habit of not practicing enough, Joey has been patient with him and has managed to discover what sparks my son’s interest. Now, Nicholas has greatly improved and plays guitar very often, and enjoys it. Joey has also been flexible when we have had to request schedule changes. He has also been thorough in following up on questions or discussions we have had.” Sherry Wooten Huntersville NC “Joey greeted my 10 year-old-daughter with a warm smile. A mother couldn't have asked for more! As an instructor he met my daughter where she was as a learner, and a curious beginner. He continues to help her develop in both skill and confidence. His talent and love for music keep her motivated and ...

Joey was a terrific, flexible teacher who did his best to accommodate my work schedule, etc. He was thoughtful, prepared for each lesson, and really listened to what and how I wanted to learn to play the guitar. I'd highly recommend him for anyone just beginning or wanting to improve.
