SoundBoard Studios specializes in classical guitar, via the Suzuki method and philosophy, providing both private and group instruction for children. In addition to performance technique, we offer comprehensive music theory using the finest computer based materials available. We are located conveniently to, Fayetteville, Fort Bragg, Spring Lake, Raeford and Hope Mills communities.

The name classical guitar does not mean that only classical repertoire is performed on it, although classical music is a part of the instrument's core repertoire (due to the guitar's long history); instead all kinds of music (folk, alternative, jazz, flamenco, etc.) can be and are performed on it.

SoundBoard Studios offers a comprehensive musical education program for students of all ages and levels in the Fayetteville area, providing professional guitar lessons to residents of Cumberland County and surrounding counties of Harnett, Sampson, Bladen, Robeson, Hoke and Moore.

In the announced Base Realignment And Closure or BRAC, two major headquarters: Army Forces Command (FORSCOM) and Army Reserve Command are moving to to Fort Bragg. SoundBoard Studios welcomes our new neighbors. If arriving in the Fayetteville area or if your family has recently arrived, there is no need to neglect musical education. Our private and group guitar instruction are among the finest in the Southeast.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!

 As a Suzuki teacher, I know first hand that the success of the child as a music student is directly dependent on the home coach, usually the mother!  So I am taking this opportunity to say HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to each of my studio moms, past and present, without whom this program would not exist.  I sincerely hope that each of you have a wonderful day with your family.

God Bless You All

SPRING '13 TERM COMES TO A CLOSE

 The Spring '13 semester has come to a close.  I want to say "great work" to all students and parents.  Everyone has made improvements in their playing, learning new pieces and making strides in technical ability.

It's time for a short break but I know that each of you will continue to practice at your normal pace so that we can start the Summer semester smoothly.  

I'm looking forward to seeing my former students that are home from college; I believe there is a luncheon in the offing when we can get together and share experiences.

8TH ANNUAL WARRIORS ON THE WATER

Last week saw the very successful running of Warriors On the Water (WOW)!  No we didn't play guitar there but it was certainly an honor to be a part of this community outreach activity for the 5th time.  For those not familiar, this activity pairs volunteer boaters from Fayetteville and surrounding communities with soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines for a one day bass fishing tournament.

18TH GUITARFEST - A REUNION IN THE HIGH COUNTRY

 The GuitarFest at AppState has always been special to me because it was the very first event of this type that I attended.  It was there that I became interested in Suzuki teaching and where I have met most of the players that would have a significant impact on me personally and subsequently my studio.

FORMER STUDENT AT APPALACHIAN STATE UNIVERSITY

Last year was a time of mixed emotions here in the studio with three of my students leaving.  Yes, sad to see them go but so happy for them at the same time.  They worked hard and learned much.  Their reward - getting into the school of their choice.

LONG TIME STUDENT AT CAMPBELL UNIVERSITY

 It was March 2003 when a young Marquez Dedeaux started guitar lessons.  Who knew that he would become the longest running student in the studio!  I will never forget his first group lesson.  He got a bit distraught when he was unable to keep up with the other students.  After some consoling I explained that he wasn't supposed to be able to keep up with the others yet but one day there would be students that couldn't keep up with him.  Well he took that to heart and became one of the most dedicated students ever.

SUZUKI INSTITUTE - A SUMMERTIME OPTION

The list of Suzuki Institutes that take place during the summer are numerous for sure.  While most require a significant investment in travel expense, there is one close for NC - how about our neighbor to the north, Virginia!   This a busy, but fun camp with several great suzuki teachers.  Children are encouraged to play in  a solo recital and have a group final recital at the end of the camp.  The is an especially great camp for the younger children and newer guitar students.

FORMER STUDENT AT BELMONT UNIVERSITY

From time to time I like to reflect on my students that have moved on to that next phase of their life - College!!  In 2000 a very young 6 year old Callie Brown started guitar lesson with me.  From the outset I knew that she would excell as a player, possibly a performer.  Callie participated in everything that we did in the studio and eventually became a member of the studio quartet.  She played every position in the group and eventually led the quartet as its 1st chair.
