About Me

I am an experienced professional with a background in music performance, education, composition, theory and arranging.

*** Lesson Details ***
Few musicians or music students have identical goals, musical interests or physical size. So, It is NECESSARY to customize the course of study to meet student requirements. There are common issues for any serious pursuit of learning involving the guitar; right and left hand technique, fingerboard knowledge, chord knowledge, reading and interpretation.

However, to progress, it is also necessary for the student to practice daily.

I try to maintain a healthy balance between the focus on performance and technical issues.

About Me

I am a professional guitarist/bassist with more than 20 years experience playing in bands of various styles including hard rock, metal, country and jazz. I have toured across the U.S. and have shared the stage with acts as varied as Styx, Heart, Foreigner, Corey Smith, Drivin' & Cryin', Seven Mary Three, and Quiet Riot.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect their lessons to be laid back but still goal oriented. I strive to tailor lessons to the personal learning styles and musical preferences of my students. If the student wants to be the next solo-guitar shredder or introspective guitar songwriter, I want to give him/her the tools needed to succeed. After just a few months (with consistent practice at home), my students will be able to not only play along with their favorite songs but will also be able to improvise, jam with other musicians and even start writing their own songs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide an acoustic guitar for myself. The student would need to provide either an acoustic guitar or electric guitar and amp for their own use, as well as any other music stands, books, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock, blues, and country styles; I have some experience in jazz. I can teach simple chords and songs as well as scales, modes and improvisation.

About Me


Jim S. is an Atlanta native and gained a love for music early in life by touring with The Atlanta Boy Choir in Europe and Alaska in 1987 and 1988. After a few years of playing drums and teaching himself guitar, Jim started his academic studies in guitar performance at Atlanta Institute of Music, where he studied with notable guitarists Steve Cunningham and Nite Driscoll. Jim has also studied with Dan Baraszu, the guitarist of Atlanta’s Fabulous Fox Theatre, and was a participant of the master classes of Corey Christiansen and Jimmy Herring of Widespread Panic. Jim graduated from A.I.M. in 1999. He then moved to Athens, GA to increase his musical experience by playing in various local bands and performing in virtually every venue that Athens had to offer, including the Georgia Theatre. Jim has played with many rock bands including Three Too Many, Teeter Driskle, Red House, Bella CoOla, The Seeds of Harmony All-Star Band, Gooey, The Ferguson Outfit, Bellian Marshall and The Audio Bandits, Second Glance, and the Kennesaw Rain Project.

Upon moving back to Atlanta, Jim accepted a teaching position at St. Martin’s Episcopal School where he teaches guitar lessons in the after-school program. He also has many private students, and currently teaches at Key Music Center, where he is the director and arranger of the Guitar Ensemble, head coach of the rock band classes and camps, and the school’s guitar repair technician. In 2003, after apprenticing with Ken Bennett of Warrior Guitars and Number 9 Guitars, Jim assisted in the building of three custom solid body electric guitars, including the R.I.P. guitar that he currently plays. Currently, Jim is assisting Guitars by KB with their first carved archtop guitar model, ” The Bennetti ”.

He then continued his academic studies at Georgia Perimeter College where he studied classical guitar performance.

Jim has recently co-founded a Jazz Duo with his twin brother, Scott. The brothers play as a cohesive unit and frequently finish each others sentences musically. Jim and Scott find it stimulating to interpret popular songs into jazz. Through improvisation, converse using musical devises that range from quoting each other’s lines, trading phrases, and melodic embellishment. Jim is also currently leader of the jazz combo, Snaz, The band has been playing jazz standards and originals throughout the metro Atlanta area since 2005. Snaz plays a wide variety of jazz in styles including straight ahead swing, rock fusion, bossa nova, calypso and funk. In addition to playing music in venues and restaurants, they have played a wide variety private parties including, wedding receptions, anniversaries, and corporate events, as well as benefit concerts. Jim is also working on a solo album that will consist of solo jazz arrangements of standard and not so standard jazz tunes.

*** Lesson Details ***
The goal of music lessons is not to just learn the notes and mechanics of an instrument, but to become a well-rounded MUSICIAN. With my lessons, we don't just go through a book page-by-page, rather, lessons are shaped around the musical tastes and interests of the student. Musical theory concepts are applied in actual songwriting and current popular songs. I accompany the students on various instruments, imitating a real performance situation. I teach all ages; beginners to advanced musicians.

Unlike a crowded music store with a cramped little room for lessons, my lessons are taught in a large, open, and well-lit home studio. There is an open waiting area where parents can listen as well. Parking is convenient on a cul-de-sac with a clear view into the teaching studio.
