About the Teachers

Atlanta Guitar Academy will take you through a course that is every bit as good as the best music programs in the country, but at a fraction of the cost. The curriculum was written by David Poole, who also authored the curriculum for the Scales Department at the Atlanta Institute of Music (AIM). 

There is no contract. You can leave at any time. We are month to month. That's what makes us unique to other programs that lock you into a long contract.

Our students become the best at every style of Music: Rock, Blues, Jazz, Fusion, and Classical. Learning theory, scales, styles, notation, sight reading, and more. Our students come out the best guitar players in the state.


At the end of the course the student will receive a certificate that is highly valued saying that they completed one of the most challenging music development programs in the state. 

And for the students who are not quite ready to get the most out of these classes, there is a junior course that will lead up to level one of the program.
