Started taking lessons in August 2019. I'm a total beginner. Very pleased with my experience so far. Lessons are not intimidating and build upon previous lessons. My instructor is very patient and flexes the lessons to match the progress I've made (or not made) on the previous lesson. Great location. Easy to get to. Highly recommend.

Can't say enough good about what I've learned since starting my "bucket list" project of learning guitar. If you want to learn classical acoustic or jazz, you may want to find a different instructor- but if you want to learn the basic building block of rock and roll - BLUES - and classic rock, metal and rhythm for nearly all popular music and even worship music - I can't recommend Chad highly enough.

Jeff is tough to please, but he's very impressed with the advanced guitar studies he's undertaken here. He sounds really great. Loud... but great!

Customer Testimonials

As a parent, I couldn’t be happier with the progress that Abby’s made with Chad. He isn’t too easy, has high expectations and continues to push in a positive away. I feel like guitar has given Abby an identity and boosted her self confidence. Coincidence or not, her grades have improved greatly since she started playing. I definitely feel like guitar is a gift that will last her a lifetime.


I have been taking lessons at Palmetto Music for about a year. Chad has a very comprehensive course and customizes it to the student’s needs and desires. The one thing I’m learning, that I did not expect is music theory. When you learn how music is put together you can learn to play quicker. If you want to learn, really learn, the guitar and have fun and be challenged along the way, this is your place and Chad is your teacher.


Whether you are an experienced player or picking up a guitar for the first time Chad has a plan for you. Unlike other guitar teachers Chad doesn’t teach you a top 40 song a week and he doesn’t start you out learning simple melodies either. His system is well researched and thought out. It’s organized to offer his students a comprehensive program of fundamentals with which to build a musical foundation. With these tools and practice his students are able to progress at their own pace and get to where they want to be musically. Recommended for serious students committed to practice and learning.
