Joel's music theory lessons are superb!
Rick
My first lesson went really well. I wanted to learn music theory as well as learn how to play.
Very knowledgeable and teaches in a way that is easy to understand.
I walked away from the first lesson with more than one 'ah-ha' moment and am excited to learn more.

Pick a song you want to learn - I'll teach you how to play it! Want to learn how to write your own song? I can teach you!

I focus on your interests as a guitarist, and develop the lessons from there. I really listen and get to know you as a guitarist, a songwriter, a bandmate - however you see yourself, and help you achieve your dreams. All my lessons are rooted in a firm grasp of music theory, proper guitar technique, and a deep understanding of music history.

After years of working on my scales and feeling like I still didn't know my way around the guitar, Tom was able to explain how to play scales vertically in both major and minor keys in just one lesson. No one before him had been able to explain it in such a way for it to finally click for me. Since then, I feel like my shredding skills have improved 10 fold and I have fallen even more in love with playing and jamming along to my favorite songs. Tom is patient, kind, calm, and an incredibly skilled guitarist that anyone would be lucky to learn from!

Thomas Dawson is a very informative, positive, and educational guitar teacher. He’s degree in music from University of Oregon is proof of his vast musical knowledge. His focus on rhyme will be sure to help you become a great guitar player. Above all he is a great person and fun to be around. After taking lessons with Tom my guitar skills and musicality vastly improved. I highly recommend him has a teacher.

"Once you go Terry, you never leave.

I've been taking lessons with Terry for about 5 years now. I've become a very skilled guitar player in these 5 years. Through Terry, I've learned my fretboard up and down, know how to use scales to improvise solos, and especially learned how to play heavy metal. He is an extremely talented musician. Not only does he teach you your instrument of choice, he gives you knowledge of music theory. Not because he feels like he has to, because he wants to. He is in my opinion one of the most valued teachers in Michigan. Go with Terry, you will not be disappointed."
