My Name is Jimmy Dykes I have played the Guitar since I saw the Beatles for the first time on the Ed Sullivan Show. I have played all over the world with top musicians such as Dr. John,Oleta Adams, Percy Sledge, Isaac Hayes and many more. My students have achieved a wide verity of goals from the cover of the Rolling Stone to playing at their birthday party for family members.

I enjoy it when people begin to learn and apply what I have taught them.

Jimmy is a phenomenal teacher. He is student driven, catering his lessons to each of his students' goals and interests. He makes sure I am getting exactly what I want out of guitar playing. I am always engaged and excited to learn new songs from genres and music of my choosing. Jimmy ensures theory and motor skills are learned in a methodical progression using songs that keep me motivated to practice. I gain proficiency song by song while growing my comprehensive knowledge and skill set. Jimmy is the best!
