My approach to teaching is simple. The primary goal is to have fun and enjoy the experience of making and creating music. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in music or just wanting to add a bit of a creative outlet to your life, let me help.

My specialties include jazz, r&b, and pop piano styles. I do teach a little classical but primarily to beginners only. My curriculum is simple. I try to teach you what it is YOU want to know and that which fit your needs. There are some fundamentals that we all must learn, but typically I can have you playing a song your first lesson. As you progress, you will be able to learn to play songs on your own and interpret simple chord charts with melody.

For those students who already actively play, I can help hone your skills, offer performance, recording and studio tips and techniques.

90 and 120 min lessons are only offered to those students wishing to learn production and do NOT apply to piano lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Your lessons are given in my pre-production studio in my condo. Lessons take place on a digital piano either a Yamaha or a Casio Privia. If you are taking production classes, then see the list of gear below. My space is tidy but not always immaculate. I am a working musician and often have several projects juggling at once. There is room for 2 to 3 in addition to the student. My living room is always available and wi-fi for those who wait on a student is also available. More than ample parking is available at any time.

About Me

Born to sing, is something I take to heart. I believe that any one can learn to sing. Most people desire to be a singer and I am here to show you how. I believe that with the proper training and consistent practice to perfect your craft, you can do it! Most people can sing, they just have not been taught how to properly do it. My motto is "Singing should be as easy as talking". Each student is individually assessed and I design a program that it catered to you, and only you. Each student will work at their own pace. I also provide the opportunity to perform in my seasonal showcases.

Emily G, an involved music lover since age 7, is currently completing her senior year at Georgia State University with a degree in Choral and General Music Education. She began taking piano with Dr. Francisco and Mireille Silva, MM, and later from Dr. Brandt Fredriksen of Georgia State University. She has achieved a number of honors in music which include being a founding member of the Tri-M honor music society in her high school, a member of Georgia All-State Choir, a soloist and section leader of marching band, and completing a Junior Piano Recital at Georgia State University.

Emily has experience in teaching private piano lessons for Dr. Francisco and Mireille Silva and is certified in their unique method of teaching known as the Silva Piano method. She is also a Yamaha certified teacher who teaches private lessons and group music classes at the Yamaha Music Education Center in Roswell, Ga. She also has experience teaching group classes at Kennesaw State University in their Summer University program.

*** Lesson Details ***
PIANO:
You will notice immediately that the way I teach piano is drastically different than the average teacher. I was trained by the best of the best and use their method in my own teaching.

My focus with beginners is to develop good technique and get them playing from the very beginning. I teach using Solfege (Do, re, mi...etc) which means we will do a lot of singing and memorize the notes of our pieces in the beginning. It is more important to look down at the hands and develop finger technique and build good habits when beginning to learn the piano.

I also do not neglect the left hand early on like so many teachers. EVERYONE can play with their left hand and both hands together, so why wait a year to get students to do it? We immediately learn to play left hand and hands together, as well as chords, and finally, different parts in the left hand and right hand.

Each student is different and will have different strengths and weaknesses, and as such, each student is ready to learn to read music at different times. Sight-reading and reading music is very important and will be taught at the right timing for the student. It is taught through solfege exercises and is very efficient and will stick with the student for the rest of their lives.

My philosophy is to have fun and reap the benefits of an effective teaching method with hard work and good practice and to be proud of what you can accomplish!

VOICE:
As an former All-State trained vocalist as well as a choral music education major, my focus in training voice is developing good singing technique to promote healthy singing, developing good tone, pitch and vowel accuracy, develop the ability to harmonize and sing in groups, sight-reading and music reading skills, and overall confidence in singing.

*** 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.
