About Joel

Hi! I have been teaching for over seven years and am no stranger to the stage. While majoring in music performance at the University of West Georgia, I performed with jazz ensembles, guitar quartets, and percussion ensembles. I also performed many solo classical guitar recitals. The only thing I love more than performing, is teaching and sharing music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons generally include three parts with content depending on your level of experience: technique, repertoire, and theory. I am an enthusiastic although laid back teacher, however I do push my students in order for them to realize themselves as a musician. I like to have fun with lessons because music is fun and I enjoy it. I hope you do too!

Joel has been an EXCELLENT teacher! He is perceptive and very good at reading his student. He knows how to make them feel comfortable with whatever level they are at. He is extremely patient and encouraging. Joel knows how to inspire his students. The time in the lesson flies by quickly and the student walks out feeling very good about their progress, anxious to practice what they have learned and looking forward to the next lesson.

About Andrew

I have been teaching students of all ages for 17 years. My principle instrument is Trumpet, but I teach multiple instruments. I received my BS in music from Radford University in 2000. I moved to Miami in 2001 to attend school and perform with artists such as Arturo Sandoval, Micheal Brecker, David Sandborn, Diana Krall, as well as numerous corporate bands in the Miami area playing for such people as Donald Trump and opening up for Lionel Richie and Elton John. Through out my entire educational and professional career I have helped many students reach their personal and professional goals.
As a teacher I understand the importance of patience and persistence, I utilize positive reinforcement and encouragement. Music is meant to be fun so therefore I make the lesson FUN! My teaching ...

Great instructor overall

Marty was a great instructor to me. Taught me a lot in the 4 lessons I had with him. Very professional and knowledgable in Bass. Unfortunately because my schedule changing I could not keep him as an instructor. My only gripe would be that his studio room gets a little cramped and my guitar sometimes would hit things. Other than that. I would definitely recommend him.

To describe Mercedes in one word: "Awesome!" She is very patient and encouraging. I started taking singing lessons later in life and have always been very shy about it. Not only has she helped me to break out of my shell, but she is extremely knowledgeable and I have learned so much. She has been gifted with this wonderful talent in music and voice and I am truly blessed to have her as my teacher.

She is wonderful! She really knows how to reach children which is that she has such a gentle soul. She welcomed us strangers to her home and opened my son up to several types of music he never thought about before. We are leaving the area which is why we had to say goodbye. She is absolutely meant to teach.

wonderful teacher

Mercedes is an enthusiastic and patient teacher! My children have only been taking piano lessons from her for less than 6 months, but there is a significant improvement in their abilities already. She encourages them to play with feeling, never overwhelms them with too much work, and is always so upbeat at the lessons.

She is Cuban, so sometimes you have to listen carefully, because of her accent, but she speaks English well.

He is an excellent teacher! Just because you play drums doesn't mean you can teach drums. My son has shown so much growth working with Glenn. He is truly a great teacher and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Great Drum Instructor !!

Great Drum Instructor!! He has a true passion for teaching and identifies quickly with his students.

My son has been taking lessons from him since the age of 13 and he learned more in his first year than most kids learn through many years of instruction.

He is a personable, friendly and talented professional !! I would highly recommend him for anyone!

Christina is an excellent teacher. She is very detailed when
explaining how to play a song in the correct time signature.
I like the fact that she does not move forward until I have
learned where my problem areas are; for example timing.
I would highly recommend Christina as a piano teacher.
