Fun to be around

I'm a complete beginner on the piano, and within a matter of a few lessons Buzz had me playing 3 or 4 songs. Not only that, but i learned much about how songs are put together, which made me listen to music differently and deepened my enjoyment of what I was listening to.
True to his word, Buzz asked me what I wanted out the lessons and then delivered.

Kenneth is a great instructor. I can't wait to get there each Tuesday. My voice is stronger because of exercises that have been applied and my confidence has greatly increased. Kenneth is kind and firm teacher. More importantly, He is an extremely gifted musician. His ability to transfer knowledge is "off the chart!" I am glad I picked him from the list. He is outstanding and has a nice, professional location/studio as well.

Joshua C. Atlanta, GA

My first taste of music theory was when I began taking piano lessons in first grade - though I didn't know that's what it was at the time. Understanding the concepts of music and being able to read and write in musical notation has really helped my performance as a musician as well as my enjoyment of making music!
Though I incorporate theory into all my private lessons, this is an opportunity to concentrate more on communicating through listening to, reading and writing of music.

About Joshua

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach in the Education Building of a Church that has individual classrooms, where lessons will be held, all of which are off a common area where parents can wait during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my instrument and a music stand for myself, and I assume the student will have their own as well. There are specific collections of songs and exercises that the student should be ready to purchase based on their level of playing and will be determined after our initial lesson. Students will want to continue to invest in other collections as they progress and I will occasionally provide additional materials as appropriate.

*** Specialties ***
I have a Bachelor of Music Education and taught middle school strings in the Houston area public ...

Wes F. Atlanta, GA

I have a deep love of music theory and extensive knowledge of the subject and how it works on a practical level. Theory is great because it helps you DO things! If you want to improve as a performer or writer, growing in your knowledge of theory can definitely help.

About Wes

I studied classical guitar and composition at Asbury College and later more in depth guitar studies rock, jazz, and classical at the Atlanta Institute of Music. I have been teaching steadily for the past ten years as well as spending my time with various other musical projects such as leading worship for my church, performing for various parties and weddings, and composing and recording music for a short film. I use my experience and broad understanding of music to inform the way that I teach, so that my students have a robust experience of all aspects of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a lesson plan that I follow for beginning students to get them through the basics. As a teacher I am laid back, and positive, but always try to give the student a clear reflection of how they are ...

Wes has been teaching my son, age 7, for four months now and we could not be happier! He manages to be very informative while keeping it fun and interesting without being silly or boring. Wes's enthusiasm for the guitar is contagious. I am thrilled with my son's progress and level of continued interest. Thank you Wes!

Excellent Instructor

Wes is an excellent instructor. He is patient, clear, encouraging, fun, and totally professional. I highly recommend him to anyone (young or old) wanting to learn the guitar.

Wes listens to what the student wants to learn and sets his lessons to help the student achieve their goals. Our lessons are in the instructor's studio, which is a safe, accessible, and clean environment.

I look forward to our future sessions and continuing my guitar learning under his instruction.

Still taking lessons with Michael since starting over 2 months ago learning so much! Reading violin music and learning theory has become something that I am able to now do in addition to actually playing! He is an excellent teacher who has taken me from literally knowing nothing about the violin to someone who can actually play! With more practice I am confident that violin is an instrument that I will continue to play, thanks to Michael's teaching!

Michael has been very helpful in helping me return to playing violin after a long period of inactivity. He is able to make specific suggestions for improving intonation, vibrato and bowing technique. I was particularly impressed that he sought advice from GSU professors and relayed those tips to me during lessons. He has been very encouraging in spite of my many mistakes in the first few lessons.
