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.
