About Alex

I have 15 years experience playing guitar and drums and love nothing more than to share my knowledge of music with students who are eager to learn. My passion for music developed at an early age and has only grown from there. I have had the privilege of learning from excellent and extremely talented teachers. I enjoy playing at local venues and watching my students joyfully succeed.

Alex is extremely patient with my son who is 9 years old. He makes it fun for him and uses music that my son loves. He took his time to ask what type of music he would like and is teaching him based on that. After only three lessons my son is really starting to pick up on basic cords. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone that is interested in learning guitar. My son really enjoys his time with him.

About Taylor

Hello! My name is Taylor R. I am a composer, performer and teacher. I have a profound passion for teaching and have been teaching private and group lessons for over eight years. I get to know each of my students personally so that I can tailor my teaching methods to meet their specific needs and present them with what they need to know in ways they can easily understand. The concepts and skills I teach my students during our lessons will aid them greatly in their non-musical lives as well; discipline, confidence, focus, etc. I always make sure my students get the information, guidance and resources they need in order to be successful.

In 2014 I was accepted to the Royal Academy of Music in London for composition. I have written for groups and soloists such as The Canadian Brass, ...

Ryan M. Athens, GA

About Ryan

I graduated from Flowery Branch High School here in Flowery Branch, Georgia and was accepted to University of Miami's Frost School of Music as an undergrad for Music Business and Entertainment Industries.

While there I was given the pleasure to study under Chuck Bergeron, Don Coffman, Nicky Orta, Troy Roberts, Victor Wooten and Steve Bailey. As a bass player I practiced with the Drumming Majors during their weekly styles class, I took part in many ensembles in various styles such as the R&B ensemble, the ECM ensemble, Contemporary Jazz Techniques, and various Experiential Ensembles which covered decades of Jazz music.

As a bass player you may know Frost as the home of Jaco Pastorius, or guitarist Pat Metheny.

Brooke R. Athens, GA

About Brooke

Hello, my name is Brooke and I am very excited about the opportunity to teach some clarinet lessons! I have been teaching clarinet since 2007 and have enjoyed helping my students accomplish their goals, such as earning a spot in Georgia's all-state band or simply crossing the break with more ease. I attended the University of Georgia for my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in clarinet performance. I try to include fun in my teaching style as often as possible, but I also show a tough side to truly push my students to be their best. I play the soprano clarinet and all of its auxiliaries, so I can help with the bass, alto, E-flat, and contra varieties of the instrument too. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals!
