Students can except a stress free learning process. After learning the basic symbols of music notation, breathing, and simple rhthyms the students will continue learning the techniques and fingerings on their chosen intsrument. After mastering these basic concepts in music the children will then be given a chance to perform their songs to an instrumental accompaniment. This is good for the student who does not play in an ensemble to have the opportunity to play and listen to other moving parts.

Clarinet, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

I absolutely love music and teaching piano and clarinet! Having studied both clarinet and piano at the University of Georgia, I am patient and encouraging with both children and adults. I have taught piano in my home for nine years now and have children of my own; so I understand that each person is an individual and has different needs and strengths. I also teach private clarinet lessons and am currently playing with the Gwinnett Community Band. I enjoy teaching beginning students as well as more advanced students. It is such a huge joy to see a student grow in their understanding of music and gain the confidence that comes with it!

*** Lesson Details ***
I use the Bastien lesson series with my young beginning pianists which starts with being able to identify the notes and keys on the piano and then moves to reading music on the staff. I am very patient and encouraging with young students and speak to them on their level. My goal is for them to be able to identify the notes on the keyboard, find the correct hand position, and play a few simple songs within two to three months. After six months, they will be playing songs while reading notes on the staff, and once a year during the spring, we have a recital for everyone to show how much they've learned!

For my adult beginning pianists, I use a lesson series by Alfred which combines music theory with the lesson songs and exercises. At the beginning they jump right into reading music, and within three months, the student will be able to play some nice songs. After six months, basic chords will have been introduced and they will be able play more complicated songs.

For my more advanced piano students, I use the Faber lesson series. With all students, I include music theory in each lesson, but the Faber series goes into more depth. It also covers a variety of music genres, including ragtime, jazz and classical. Also, depending on the individual, I will begin to incorporate some classical pieces as soon as they are ready. I'm always open to knowing what a student likes and pursuing songs that they will enjoy playing, particularly as they become more accomplished!

With my clarinet students, I focus on scales and arpeggios, help them with songs that they are working on in band, and provide supplemental exercises, duets, or solos for them to play. I am familiar with the "Standard of Excellence" and "Essential Elements" series. I also help prepare students for middle school and high school district and all-state auditions by working on the scales, etudes, and sight reading.

I also teach beginning and intermediate alto saxophone and help them with auditions as well.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano, keyboard, clarinet, and alto saxophone that I use for teaching. I expect my students to have their own instrument before beginning lessons. A keyboard is fine for beginning piano students; it is not necessary to have a piano. I will be happy to recommend models and brands of keyboards to new students. I recommend Yamaha brands will full size keys and the 'touch sensitive' or 'grand piano touch feature, meaning how hard you press the keys will determine how loud it will sound. Some Yamaha models I recommend are: PSR E333, PSR E423, YPG 235, and EZ 220.

*** Specialties ***
I use the Bastien books with my younger (early elementary) piano students. I like to use the Faber series with my older piano students because in includes jazz, classical, and contemporary styles. (With more advanced students, I primarily focus on a variety of Classical music. My favorite composer is Debussy from the Romantic era.) With my adult piano students, I like to use the Alfred adult series which contains popular and classical songs that they may be familiar with. Each method includes theory. I prefer teaching piano from first grade and up, although I have had students as young as 5 yrs. old. I also teach adults!
I am familiar with the "Essential Elements" method series for clarinet and the "Standard of Excellence" series for both clarinet and saxophone. I can teach and help beginning clarinet students through advanced and am able to help beginning and intermediate saxophone students as well. I am classically trained on the clarinet although I enjoy a variety of genres.

Drum, Percussion, Piano

About Me

I have over 30 years of combined education and experience performing and teaching percussion and piano. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Percussion Performance from the University of Alabama,with Piano as my secondary instrument. I hold a Master's Degree in Percussion Performance from Indiana University, with a Cognate in Jazz Studies. I have taught private percussion, drum set, and piano lessons for over 30 years. I performed for 10 years as a contract percussionist with the Savannah Symphony Orchestra, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, the Macon Symphony Orchestra, and the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. I have performed in orchestras with accomplished musicians including The Moody Blues (Chastain Park), Judy Collins, and Henry Mancini.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like my students to have some fun while they learn. I ask that you practice 30 minutes a day, so that you can spend your lesson time learning and moving forward. For piano, I use the Alfred series, as well as the Real Book (jazz standards), and of course sheet music for classical pieces and popular tunes. After three months, you will have learned how to play the basic scales and chords, as well as some introductory classical and popular material. On drums after six months, you will know the first thirteen rudiments and some of the basic rock beats, and you will be playing with some rock ballads. After six months on piano, you will be playing all of the major scales and chords and the basic minor chords. You will be playing some Bach and Mozart, and you will start on some basic jazz standards. On drums, you will have learned most of the 26 basic rudiments, and you will be playing along with some medium tempo rock songs. You will have learned some coordinated independence to start playing jazz and swing styles (which by the way are the building blocks for playing R&B and hip-hop). And you'll enjoy the journey! I enjoy seeing my students grow as they learn. I have had students of mine go on to play in the Spirit of Atlanta Drum and Bugle Corps, get advanced music degrees, and become recording artists. The current Percussion Instructor at the University of Alabama was my percussion student. While I know that not everyone seeks to play professionally, you will learn the tools to play well. I look forward to teaching you!

About Me

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!

-Paul S.

*** Lesson Details ***
I strongly believe in the idea of constant positive re-enforcement when it comes to teaching music. Negativity leads to tension, and tension is NOT conducive to learning. I am an enthusiastic and gentle educator, but I will firmly drive you or your child to achieve musical goals in a fun and exciting atmosphere. Motivation is essential to practice, and the importance of practice could never be overstated. This is why I stress positivity! I ask only that you come to your lesson prepared and unafraid of making mistakes.

As a beginning musical student, you can expect to have the fundamentals of reading and comprehending written music within 3 to 6 months. On the day of your first lesson, we'll discuss your goals and interests, and I will recommend books and materials to aid you on your journey. I will systematically teach you the basic rudiments and techniques that are essential to proper hand and finger movement; I'll also teach you mental techniques to ensure great practice. As an intermediate or advanced student, we'll discuss your previous education and musical interests, and I'll direct you towards the styles you want to pursue. We'll also work on concepts of music theory and performance.

Since performance is an important part of music, I will coordinate an optional recital in the spring for students to showcase their hard work and talent. This low-stress concert will be held at a local school or community center and will surely be a great experience for all those involved.

I offer lessons from my smoke-free, family home studio, but I am more than willing to travel to you, depending on your location.

Let's make beautiful music together!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Many drums (including a drum set) and percussion instruments, electric piano, guitar.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have drums and percussion instruments, including a snare drum and a glockenspiel to teach beginning percussion students, and many accessory instruments. I would expect a drum set student to have a drum set, but as far as beginning percussion students go, I wouldn't expect more than a practice pad, a pair of sticks, and a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
I was trained classically, so I am happy to pass on a love of classical music through lessons. However, I have been playing jazz and popular music since high school and am also knowledgeable in these genres. Percussion is a gigantic range of instruments, so I study as much as I can about all styles.

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.

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.
