Dylan S. says, "I used to play guitar in high school but I unfortunately stopped playing when I went away to college. In the last couple years I was looking into picking the guitar up again and that’s when I got into contact with Chas. He taught a great balance of mechanics and music theory that really helped me thrive and get back to where I once was in a very timely manner. Now that I’m back up to speed we are diving into more advanced lessons and techniques and he’s showing a great range of catering to anyone who wants to begin learning or looking for something more advanced. I would definitely recommend seeing him and am looking forward to where I’ll be the next couple months!" Read more

Gavin H. says, "Matty is an extraordinary musician, and is a really intuitive teacher! Even though he didn't teach me for very long the amount I learned from him in the time that I DID spend with him helped fuel me to be where I am today.

Reviews for Sandy Springs electric guitar lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Sandy Springs area.
Trenten D.
Chas really goes in-depth with some of the harder to understand concepts and explains them thoroughly. Enough to the point where even when I knew nothing about music theory I was still able to understand the concepts. A great teacher and very supportive mentor when I shared musical ideas that I had been developing with him.
