Linda L. Tucker, GA

I play and teach a variety of percussion instruments, including hand drums (congas, tubano, djembe, bongos), xylophone and other toned percussion, shaker-type instruments, tambourine, guiro, etc.
Percussion instruments are a great way to introduce very young children to playing music. In the past, I taught music classes to toddlers and preschoolers, with an emphasis on percussion. I have also taught percussion to teens and adults.

About Linda

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, music stand, paper and pencil, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
On guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory. When using an electronic ...

Stephen D. Stone Mountain, GA

I can work with you on mallet technique (marimba, xylophone, bells, vibraphone, etc.) and help you learn from classical/orchestral, pop, and jazz literature. I can also assist you with learning orchestral snare drum technique. We can work on learning orchestral repertoire as well. A few of the books I use are the Modern School for Xylophone, Marimba, and Vibraphone (Goldenberg), Modern Method for Tympani (Goodman), and Stick Control (Stone). Please see my bio (the "About" section) for my orchestral experience.

Steve D. is an excellent teacher! My daughter is in the band at her middle school, and she started taking lessons a few weeks before school started. She was worried about having to play a part on the bells that she did not know. Steve showed her exactly how to play it, and she was able to play the whole piece before leaving her lesson. She came worried, and she left confident! Steve is very patient, and is able to answer any question you ask him regarding percussion. He is very kind as well, and I would recommend him to anyone who needs lessons.

Paul S. Decatur, GA

I have been a percussionist for the past 15 years, and I have taught percussion for the past 5 years to a wide range of people. I feel deeply passionate about sharing the musical wealth on these instruments; anything can be a percussive sound. We begin by learning the fundamentals of technique and rhythm; a few books I like to use for beginning students include George Lawrence Stone's "Stick Control," Ted Reed's "Progressive Steps to Synchopation," the George Hamilton Green xylophone method book, and Mark Wessels' "Fresh Approach to Drum Set." If you have played before, I am happy to cater to your individual needs in terms of material.

About Paul

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 ...

Spencer D. Lilburn, GA

About Spencer

I am percussionist who graduated from the University of West Georgia. I believe that teaching music should increase the skills of the student while at the same time increasing the students enjoyment and knowledge of what they are playing. I am able to teach the most percussion including marimba, timpani, concert percussion, and drum set. If you are interested in lessons because you've played and you want to get to the next level, you want to learn a new instrument, or if you have never played an instrument before do not hesitate to ask for a lesson. I would be more than happy to talk to you give a free lesson and set up goals to see if this is what you want to do.
