Linda L. Tucker, GA

I have played bass professionally, with various bands, and can teach many styles, including, rock, pop, jazz, and blues.

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 ...

Scott S. Duluth, GA

Bass guitar is very similar to guitar in theory, but it is approached in a different manner. After playing in many bands I have learned the nuances of bass playing by having to fill in on occasion. As a writer myself, I have created many baselines for original music

About Scott

Scott S.
I started playing guitar while in high school. Then, I furthered my studies in guitar at the Atlanta Institute of Music (2 Years) and Georgia Perimeter College (2 Years) where I studied Music Theory and Jazz. It was during these few years when I played in several rock, Bluegrass and Jazz improvisational bands, that played out regularly in Metro-Atlanta. I have also run several "Open Mic Nights" in several restaurants and bars. I have studied with Trey Wright at Kennesaw State University and recently graduated with a B.A. in Jazz Guitar (Summer 2011), with a concentration in Jazz Performance. While at Kennesaw State, I spent 3 years performing in the KSU Jazz Ensemble, Jazz Guitar Ensemble, and Jazz Combo Bands.
I have been teaching guitar and music since 1999. I ...

Highly recommended teacher

I am in my mid-30s and picking up Mandolin for the first time without much background in music. Scott has been really great to learn from, teaching me not only the basics of scales and chords but he also has me working on songs and solos which I never thought I'd be able to do so early. I would highly recommend Scott.

Amazing teacher

My son has been taking guitar lessons from Scott for the last year. Scott has been amazing with him. Scott finds music that challenges and teaches my son while keeping his attention. My son loves the lesson each week. He looks forward to it. Scott has become more than a Guitar Teacher he has become a family friend.
Wes F. Atlanta, GA

I have a solid grasp on the fundamentals of bass guitar, and can help you acquire the ability to play bass for most songs.

About Wes

I studied classical guitar and composition at Asbury College and later more in depth guitar studies rock, jazz, and classical at the Atlanta Institute of Music. I have been teaching steadily for the past ten years as well as spending my time with various other musical projects such as leading worship for my church, performing for various parties and weddings, and composing and recording music for a short film. I use my experience and broad understanding of music to inform the way that I teach, so that my students have a robust experience of all aspects of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a lesson plan that I follow for beginning students to get them through the basics. As a teacher I am laid back, and positive, but always try to give the student a clear reflection of how they are ...

Wes has been teaching my son, age 7, for four months now and we could not be happier! He manages to be very informative while keeping it fun and interesting without being silly or boring. Wes's enthusiasm for the guitar is contagious. I am thrilled with my son's progress and level of continued interest. Thank you Wes!

Wes is a great teacher -he has a lot of experience and excellent technique. It is evident he loves music/guitar and is equally as passionate for teaching what he loves. He makes learning to play the guitar easy to grasp and he is very patient and encouraging. Looking forward to more jam sessions!

Excellent Instructor

Wes is an excellent instructor. He is patient, clear, encouraging, fun, and totally professional. I highly recommend him to anyone (young or old) wanting to learn the guitar.

Wes listens to what the student wants to learn and sets his lessons to help the student achieve their goals. Our lessons are in the instructor's studio, which is a safe, accessible, and clean environment.

I look forward to our future sessions and continuing my guitar learning under his instruction.

If you have a daughter who wants to learn to play a guitar CALL SASHA!!!! She is great with teenagers. Our daughter already played violin so she already knew how to read music and had an understanding of playing instruments. We just wanted to get her started so she could carry on by herself. When we explained this to Sasha, she made sure our daughter's lessons let her do just what we asked for. She is very understanding of the typical shyness of teenage girls and helped our daughter flourish in many ways. I would recommend Sasha to anyone, any age, or any needs.
Darnell S. Atlanta, GA

I have been teaching this subject for the longest; my first lesson as an instructor was around 2012. My curriculum is quite different. I do teach fundamentals, yes, however I do also like to go in depth of the history of the instrument, the pioneers, and some of the greats today. I enjoy a conversational style of teaching, while still having a hands on approach. I expect each student to have a bass, and an amp for home practice purposes.

About Darnell

My name is Darnell J. S. I am 20 years old. I was born in Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 9, my mother moved my brother and I to Atlanta, Georgia with her. Here I realized my passion for music. Not long after, I started playing the Upright Bass for my school's orchestra. In high school, transitioned to the Bass Guitar. There, played for various groups and ensembles in high school: Orchestra, Jazz Band, Gospel Choir, Chorus, and many more. In 2012 I graduated High School with Honors in the arts. I attended Benedict College until I was a Junior. There I started doing more professional work with the bass. Currently, I attend Georgia State University, seeking a degree in Music Composition. I am already gaining musical opportunities outside of school. I started teaching students part ...

David P. Atlanta, GA

I've been teaching bass for nearly 20 years. As a professional bassist playing 5-8 gigs weekly for about 10 years, I learned a wide range of bass lines and playing styles.
I can help bassists of all levels improve and diversify their playing technique and awareness of all things bass!
