Brandi B. Stone Mountain, GA

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Reading, Singing, Songwriting, Vocal Training

About Me

My name is Brandi, I have been singing since the age of 3, and writing music, recording and producing since the age of 12. As a teenager I began playing piano and guitar as well. I am a college graduate of Jazz Studies; with a focus in Music Business, and Music Production and Engineer. I attended Cuyahoga Community College, and Berklee College of Music. During my years of college I've studied, musical arranging, ear training, breathwork, songwriting, and many private musical lessons and more. Post college I have taken vocal mastery classes.

As a musician/singer I have performed in front of as many as 3,000 people, I recently had a full page feature in a magazine, as well as had FM Radio rotation for a song I wrote, sang and produced, and sold music on iTunes.

*** Lesson Details ***
What a student may expect from this teacher:
Within 3-6 months students shall a have a good grasp on the foundation of their instrument/ craft; have a controlled sound; be playing/ singing what he/she hears; stronger, more defined tone; be able to play through/ sing through at least one song; have expanded range; confidence; and of course tackling personal goals set within the lessons.

My Goal is to facilitate bringing out what greatness already lies within and to assist in that growth, as well as teaching new information and the how to apply. I am not very strict on notation, as far as reading music (Piano and Voice). Lessons with me will more consist of the meatier portion of music how to use the instrument, developing the sound, understanding chord structures, playing/ singing what you hear, techniques and how to put it all together musically. However I will go through musical notation and reading chords, but it will not be a focus. (If you desire to play/ sing classically, I may not be the best teacher for you.)

For MUSIC PRODUCTION: Producing musical tracks and recording artist is the root and the focus. The curriculum is sculpted from LOGIC PRO X, REASON and PRO TOOLS software (subject to change). Students learn how to create what he/she hears and how to format it all together; Students learn how to track and record/ mix in the most professionally used software; Mixing and Mastering shall be touched upon as well.

When it comes to teaching and application of knowledge for each student I am serious about his or her growth; I don't want anyone wasting their money or time, so practice and dedication is necessary.

Ossie M. Decatur, GA

Subjects Taught

Music Theory, Piano

About Me

I started taking piano lessons at the age of eight under the instruction of Robert Wilson before switching to Rosaline Saunders Music Studio. I play by ear, but also read music. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Louisiana at Monroe with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. My purpose is to create well rounded musicians, who can play all genres of music, and who will also know how to set the atmosphere with their music. I love teaching piano and I love teaching all ages. I began teaching piano in 2003 before becoming the founder of The Master's Hands Music Studio in 2004. My greatest joy is seeing the knowledge and gift of music passed to others that was afforded me by the sacrifice of my late parents.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am patient but expect my students to practice so that our lessons are a continuation of the lessons taught before and not practice sessions in themselves. I use the Alfred's Basic Piano Lesson and Theory books. I believe in custom tailoring the lesson to each student. Finding out what you love and working to get you to the place of playing that music.

Letha H. Atlanta, GA

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Clarinet, Flute, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Oboe, Opera Voice, Piano, Saxophone, Singing

About Me

With a performance degree from the University of Georgia, teaching certification from Georgia State and over 25 years of professional teaching experience, I am able to offer my students a diverse range of instructional resources.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons include a warmup, music theory work, vocal or instrumental technique and then a vast selection of song repertoire to support new ideas in both technique and theory. Students are directed to watch or listen to examples of master performances in their field of studies. Clear weekly goals are made between lessons and I am always encouraging! Whatever life throws at you during the week doesn't have to stop your studies cold- we will come up with a plan that fits your lifestyle.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a small Protools setup with microphones and a Kurzwell keyboard. I like to be able to go online for some resources.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I regularly use the internet in lessons as well as standard published educational texts.

*** Specialties ***
I have been told that I am especially good at helping people make the jump from playing by rote to reading from the page. In vocal instruction, I am familiar with three schools of technique: the psycho-imagery school, the "anatomical" school, and the Italian "open throat" approach. My background in acting also contributes basic vocal projection techniques to vocal training. I am comfortable with all genres of music, including pop, rock, soul, R&B, gospel, jazz and opera. In instrumental studies, I am a woodwind doubler, reading fluently and transposing on-the-spot . As a jazz and gospel artist I improvise primarily on the flute and saxophone. My piano skills are equivalent to a second-year college piano major. I can improvise accompaniments as well as read piano scores. In addition to being a certified teacher in Georgia, I attained national certification through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in 2004.

Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Violin

About Me

Music is my passion, my hobby, my career and my gift. I have been performing since age 7 and teaching for the last 25 years. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in music and love to share my knowledge and experience with all ages and aptitudes - even special needs. My approach to teaching is fun but serious, laid-back but encouraging, demanding but forgiving. I teach students how to be disciplined with their practice and how to make the most of their limited time.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can help you achieve your goals! For those who want a well-rounded music education, I include music theory (note and rhythm reading), technique, ear training, improvisation and performance practice in my curriculum using a variety of methods. I enjoy working with adults interested in picking up their instrument after a number of years. Perhaps you are someone interested in pursuing an ability to play a certain style - pop, jazz, hymns, oldies, classics, or certain artists. I customize our lessons to match your objectives.
My students have an opportunity to perform publicly several times a year which encourages practice and also builds confidence. After a few lessons, I can provide an idea of where a student will be in 3-6 months. You can always expect to find me prepared with fun ideas for our lesson. I have a grand piano as well as several keyboards to add variety and fun to our lessons.

As a busy mom of four children, I can fully appreciate your time as very valuable. That is why I will come to YOUR home for YOUR piano lesson. I will make it as convenient as possible for you - daytime, afternoon or evening! I love to have fun while teaching. Laughter is part of the great time we will have! I adore watching the student learn and grasp the concepts of piano and duets are a great way to get both of us involved. Each student is an individual and pace will vary with each student. We will learn using the Faber's Piano Adventure series of books. Our time will be used for learning a lesson or two from the book, a performance piece is worked on until perfected, and piano theory will be learned along the way. You will need to practice everyday and everything will noted in a workbook. Either if you have been away from the piano and need a refresher or you have the desire to learn, I am ready for you with my total interactive method.

*** Lesson Details ***
PIANO:
You will notice immediately that the way I teach piano is drastically different than the average teacher. I was trained by the best of the best and use their method in my own teaching.

My focus with beginners is to develop good technique and get them playing from the very beginning. I teach using Solfege (Do, re, mi...etc) which means we will do a lot of singing and memorize the notes of our pieces in the beginning. It is more important to look down at the hands and develop finger technique and build good habits when beginning to learn the piano.

I also do not neglect the left hand early on like so many teachers. EVERYONE can play with their left hand and both hands together, so why wait a year to get students to do it? We immediately learn to play left hand and hands together, as well as chords, and finally, different parts in the left hand and right hand.

Each student is different and will have different strengths and weaknesses, and as such, each student is ready to learn to read music at different times. Sight-reading and reading music is very important and will be taught at the right timing for the student. It is taught through solfege exercises and is very efficient and will stick with the student for the rest of their lives.

My philosophy is to have fun and reap the benefits of an effective teaching method with hard work and good practice and to be proud of what you can accomplish!

VOICE:
As an former All-State trained vocalist as well as a choral music education major, my focus in training voice is developing good singing technique to promote healthy singing, developing good tone, pitch and vowel accuracy, develop the ability to harmonize and sing in groups, sight-reading and music reading skills, and overall confidence in singing.

Piano Lessons in Atlanta, GA

Atlanta has long been a focal point for major players in the music business. In rock, The Black Crowes, Collective Soul and John Mayer all developed their talent here, as well as R&B artists Usher, Ludacris, Babyface, Toni Braxton and TLC. In nearby Athens, REM and the B-52s emerged in the late 70s.

If you’re interested in learning music, the piano is a great option for beginners. Most people find their initial music enthusiasm after playing the ivory keys and learning about intervals, scales and melody. There are few instruments that give a finer sense of the architecture of musical structure and composition than the piano. It is the instrument of choice for several different music styles, including classical, jazz and even rock.
