Drum, Music Performance, Percussion
Hello and welcome!!! I'm a 29 year old percussion instructor at Clark Atlanta University. I've been teaching private lessons in the metro Atlanta area since 2008. I teach every aspect of percussion from marching to concert and even drum set. World percussion is also included!!! I hold a BS in music from Bethune-Cookman University and a MM in percussion performance from Georgia State University. I promise my students a fun and relaxed environment where they can discover new avenues in their playing and push beyond what they thought wasn't capable of them.
Gabe has been playing the drums for twenty years and has been teaching students for about twelve years. In that time he has played with numerous live acts as well as studio work. His experience mostly lies in jazz, funk, blues, latin, and rock. As much as he loves playing these styles he loves to teach them. Gabe's music education began in grammar school and continued through high school. In college he earned a non-music bachelor's degree but never stopped studying the drums. With the help of his own private instructors and continued playing experience, he now considers himself a self-taught musician and uses this experience to show his students how to do the same. His students can expect a challenging curriculum that will make them better players no matter what style of music they play.
Gabe has played with or shared a stage with countless musicians including Average White Band, The Waz, Moe., Moxy Fruvous, Schleiho, Entropy, and Ike Stubblefield. He now plays out regularly and teaches in the Atlanta area where he lives with his wife and two-year-old son.

Hello! I'm Tony. I'm a forensic accountant, with a master's degree in accountancy, a bachelor's in economics, and work with an accounting firm in Alpharetta, GA.
I have over a decade of experience behind the drum set, including over 150 live performances and studio experience on 8 demos, EPs, and albums. I've drummed for projects in the styling of rock, funk, metal & hardcore, and have been a member of 6 actively performing bands and played with 2 churches. Over the past 6 years, I have also played guitar in 3 bands, one of which I am currently a member. Additionally, I immensely enjoy playing classical guitar and studying baroque and chamber music. My introduction to music was 5 years of saxophone in my middle school and high school's concert, pep, and jazz bands.
With my experience across woodwind, string, and percussive instruments, as well as my formal education, I bring a very well-rounded approach to lessons. I thoroughly understand what it takes to learn a new instrument as well as methods for sharpening and building upon prior knowledge, especially techniques to help surmount plateaus.

I'm a freelance drummer and teacher working in the Gwinnett County area. I have been playing in and around Atlanta since 1979 and moved here in 1981. I have been teaching for the Gwinnett School Of Music since 1997 and currently have 25 full-time students. I continue to perform on a regular basis with several local acts and work a few months a year with a local middle school percussion section. I received an early education in marching and symphonic music under band director John V. Mazza and had the privilege of marching with the 1st place trophy winning Prince George High School Band of Petersburg, Virginia in the 1969 Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena, California. During the 70s I toured throughout the southeast and midwest with a variety of bands based out of Panama City, and Miami, Florida.

Hello students and parents!
I am a native of Atlanta, Georgia who has been studying music for 17 years. My first instrument was the piano at age 6, and I began playing percussion in my middle school band when I was 11. My deep love of music drove me to pursue a Bachelor of Music Performance degree, which I earned magna cum laude from the University of Georgia in 2012. In college, I studied percussion with Tim Adams, retired principal timpanist of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
Music (and especially percussion) is an exciting and enormous world that I am eager to share with you, either at your home or in my studio. I am a patient, funny, and outgoing teacher who caters to your specific needs as a student. While I have studied classical music for many years, I also offer lessons in popular music styles, including rock, jazz, funk, and hip-hop.
I frequently perform as a freelance musician and recording artist, playing anything from drum set in my rock band Young Mahler to solo musical saw. I have performed nationally and internationally with ROC, the Albany Symphony Orchestra, Arts!Oglethorpe, Athena Opera, Chamber Cartel, Classic City Jazz, Oconee Youth Playhouse, and numerous groups around the southeast.
I believe that with positive dedication and a great attitude, any musical goal you have in mind can be achieved. Let me be the person to help you with your goal! Thanks for stopping by my page, and I hope to teach you soon!
