We are Seth and Mark, and we teach guitar lessons in Dunwoody, GA. We have been playing the guitar for over 15 years each and teaching guitar lessons over 10. We specialize in educating beginner to late intermediate players. Our goal is to keep lessons fun, making a point to teach music our students enjoy. We genuinely love teaching guitar lessons.
Many of our students have come to us frustrated with their previous guitar teacher. A major problem in private music education is the skilled performer who teaches solely for the sake of employment. Unfortunately, the ability to play does not necessarily grant the skill to teach. While we do perform, teaching music is a professional passion to us. Our greatest strengths as teachers are patience and commitment to the lesson over the clock. We always avoid the “my way or the highway” approach, offering fun and reasonable challenges. Oh, and we don’t flip out if you haven’t had time to practice. . .
Taking guitar lessons is great, but many students dream of getting out and playing. For this reason, we work very hard to organize live music events where our students can perform. We also have a cookout and concert at Mark’s house every spring! These are great chances for young musicians to develop confidence in themselves and show all their hard work. All the same, we realize that some folk just love to play for themselves, so we never pressure students into stressful situations.
