Where are Lessons Offered
In Teacher Studio
I have been performing and teaching and performing guitar professional for over 40 years! My principal focus is to enable students to realize their dream of playing guitar at the level they want to achieve. Lessons are casual and fun but founded upon solid musical principles and theory. I can guide beginning students or experienced players wanting to enhance their skills.
My Musical Education Background
My musical education spans decades of performing in bands. As recently as 2018 and 2019, I toured 48 states with the "Beatles vs Stones" show performing over 200 nights.
Genres and Subjects Taught
Rock, Country, Blues, Jazz. All of these styles share common musical elements that I define,clarify, and focus students attention upon. All basic elements are covered well and in a fun and understandable fashion. Intermediate and advanced students can get meaningful, useful instruction in chord theory, harmony, modes, technique....the list is long and well-covered.
$100 per month for weekly half-hour lessons. $200 per month for weekly one-hour lessons.
Ages / Skill Levels Taught
Ages 12 years and up. It is never too late to start! I had a 96 year-old student who had great success.
Cody is, by far, the BEST guitar instructor in the Texarkana area. He's able to break down the instrument in a way that makes it "stick". This isn't your run of the mill Mel Bay course. He makes lessons fun and informative. The guys at The Guitar Academy have been courteous & professional. I would recommend them over all the other teachers in the area!!!
