Ax-prentices can visit the Greenville Guitar Academy—which is under the guidance of owner Stephen Williams and his experienced staff—to wail, shred, riff, and strum their way from atonal ignorance to the heights of music nirvana. Half-hour private lessons are available for any experience level. Secure from acoustic interruption in one of the academy’s practice spaces, novice players and road-hardened rockers alike can perfect their jazz, blues, metal, slide, and other string styles with guidance from seven personable and knowledgeable instructors.
Greenville Guitar Academy’s location in the Fountain Inn Civic Center features a 500-seat theater perfect for recitals and concerts. Call ahead to discuss lesson scheduling. A notebook and an instrument are required for class; those without can borrow a guitar from the school’s supply, though they can’t take it home for practice or gentle cuddling.
Four Google Mappers give Greenville Guitar Academy an average rating of five stars:
- It is run professionally and the teachers (at least the two that I have taken lessons from) really know their stuff and how to explain it clearly and easily. – Google Mapper who reviewed the academy on 5/15/09
