Casey is a very informative and positive teacher. A good guy all around. He pushes you outside your comfort zone and makes you somehow feel comfortable there. Very professional and cares about the success of his students. I highly recommend him regardless of your age or ability. One lesson and you'll be hooked on the drums!

We moved to Atlanta this summer, looking out for a new drum teacher for our 10 year old son David. And there he is: absolutely smart, stunningly relaxed, ever so patient and polite and - most of all - so funny and inspiring while teaching my child! Just within these three months passed David has made such remarkable progress, playing many new rhythms and patterns, doing drum solos for minutes and improving his whole attitude. If you want a positive chemistry for your child's musical development I can fully recommend Casey as an instructor.

So, Buzz is pretty much the best! I’m an adult with a full-time career and no musical background, and I've been looking around off and on for years to find a teacher who wasn't stuffy and was open to a non-traditional student with a semi-crazy work-life schedule. Buzz is patient, flexible, and really breaks down the lessons in ways that make sense to my logical thinking. I always walk away feeling that I learned something new and excited to learn more, which I feel is the biggest testament to his teaching skills. His expertise in music theory has really inspired me to do more than simply learn how to read music, too, and I have no doubt that I’ll be taking lessons with him for a long time to come. Plus he’s hilarious, so that helps.

Stellar Teacher

After one of my daughter lessons, she stated "it was like he believed in me." Buzz is a positive non-judgmental teacher. He is concerned about finding the best way to teach you. He is very patient. He has a way of making students feel comfortable and motivated in a safe learning environment.

Buzz is a brilliant musician with professional etiquette that surpasses most teachers.

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.

Brandi is an excellent teacher. She is working with my grand daughter now vocally and she has improved quite a bit. She is highly skilled, intelligent and a very pleasant teacher to work with. She knows how to bring the best out of Kaylan and my grand daughter is doing things with her voice that she didn't even know she could do. I plan to stick with her through the whole process, of singing, vocals, piano and writing. She is EXCELLENT and well worth the investment!

As an adult student, I didn't know what the experience of taking music lessons would be like. Brandi exceeded my expectations for a teacher. She is knowledgeable, professional, and fun to study with. We have a relationship of trust and good humor. In the few months that I have been studying with her, my confidence and knowledge about the mechanics and musicality of singing have increased immensely. I am sticking with Brandi and with my lessons!

Amazing Vocal Coach!!!

I am very grateful to have Ms. Brandi B as my vocal coach. She is so talented, very patient and she is passionate about what she does. She is not only a vocal instructor; she is also a motivational mentor to me. She is always positive an always reassures me that greatness/perfection doesn’t happen overnight. That is a very powerful nugget to me because this is such a true statement. She is also very humble and can relate to anyone. She has such an amazing voice and she is such a beautiful person inside and out. She also remains professional at all times. She has a very calm spirit and you can feel the positive energy whenever she is around. I am constantly learning something different every time I see her. She has thought me so much and I am already seeing major changes in my voice. Because of her, I am now learning how to break my bad signing habits and do different things with my voice I never knew I could do. She is AWESOME and I would never trade her in for anyone else. On a scale from 1 to 10, she gets 100 every time, that’s how GOOD she is. I highly recommend Ms. Brandi without any reservation because she is an AMAZING vocal coach!!!

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 ...

I knew that I had made a good choice for a teacher when I saw some of Micheal's techniques. working with my son Alex. If Alex is not getting it, Micheal will try several ways to get the point across. From Warm ups to changing hands to learn a new piece. He does what it takes so that the student excels. He also infuses his personal experiences into the lesson when appropriate.

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!
