"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." - John Poore, Simpsonville

"For years I had wished that I could play the guitar. Unfortunately that was as far as I ever went with the idea. I really believed that, since I had no natural musical talent, there was no way I could play the guitar well. Since meeting Chad Crawford, I have learned that most musicians, including many well-known professionals, didn't just pick up a guitar and start playing at an advanced level. Their "natural talent" actually was the result of receiving instruction in proper playing techniques along with a willingness to practice to improve those skills. I was thrilled to discover that playing guitar wasn't just one of those things I always wanted, but knew could never happen. I am optimistic that with a proven teaching method and the guidance of a qualified instructor, learning to play the guitar well is within my reach. I have found both the method and the instructor at Palmetto Music Institute. I know now that the realization of my goal is possible if I am willing to listen, learn, and practice. I am looking forward to making some great music!" - Marshall Black, Greenville
