Buzz A. Atlanta, GA

Songwriting is a craft and must be approached as such. The study of almost all forms of music reveal certain similarities that all the masters (be they classical to pop) have either intuited or understood. I can help you to understand these concepts and lead you to better songwriting very quickly

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.

Great teacher

Very happy with lessons and teaching style. Buzz is a great guy and know a lot about music. Has a modern approach to teaching and also up to date with music in the web world.
Dave L. Duluth, GA

By learning very basic music theory principles, you can begin to create your very own music. While you're learning that, we'll study how the great songwriters put their masterpieces together. By identifying the elements that legendary songwriters use, you can immediately put it into practice in your own writing

About Dave

In my teaching practice, I've taught kids as young as 5, on up through adults. Part of my teaching philosophy is that the student needs to have fun regardless of what the topic is, so I have a very light-hearted approach. My teaching also has to be flexible because every one of my students has different strengths, and I structure my approach according to those strengths.

I'm new to this website, so I don't have many reviews at the moment through this website. But, rest assured, I have many good reviews on other parts of the web. Come back soon, as I hope to update this page soon.

If you have any questions, please contact me. I look forward to working with you!

Linda L. Tucker, GA

I am a songwriter, and have taught classes in lyric writing, melody composition, and chord accompaniment to groups of homeschoolers, in the past.

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 ...

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.

A good rapper is not always a good songwriter, and a good songwriter can not always rap/sing.
