I learned stick on a test drive. Friend came with me who knew how to drive stick and he drove the car off the lot. Went around the corner and we switched places - got about 30 minutes of lessons and had the basics down. Hardest to learn was keeping it in the sweet spot when stopped pointed uphill, but that'll be somewhat different on every car so you pretty much have to figure it out on each car.

Aside from Sid Mashburn, Miller Brothers Limited is another local shop that touches quite a bit on Southern Trad...and H. Stockton typically has some offerings, though not to the extent as Sid or Miller Bro's.
