About David "Ray"
I have played piano since age 5, saxophone since age 13, and guitar since age 15. I received a Bachelor of Music from the University of Memphis, a Masters of Education from Union, and have taught music for Memphis City Schools for the past 6 years.

I love and play a wide variety of music including Classical, Contemporary, Rock, Folk, and Praise & Worship music.

*** Lesson Details ***
There won't be any fussing or hand slapping in my lessons. As long as a few simple procedures are followed, progress will soon come. Students will have an exercise book as well as a couple of pieces to learn. If a student is willing to practice about 20-25min daily, then at the end of 6 months he/she will be able to play their first piece!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ FW keyboard, guitar, and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment **
*
I'd expect students to have their own instruments and to purchase their own books.

About Kevin
I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance.

I have taught private lessons for several years now and I love every moment with my students! I have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap into if they want. Above all, making and creating music should also be fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't yell at students for messing up or anything like that. I usually have an agenda b
ut am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I like Alfred's piano courses, but will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you want to pursue, you will be successful. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing in other genres as well.

I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!

***CANCELLATION POLICY***
I kindly ask for 24 hour notice whenever possible if a lesson is going to be missed. Generally speaking, if I don't hear from a student and their lesson time passes I will mark the lesson as missed, but I am also usually more than willing to make up the lesson at a later time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.

I had the pleasure of seeing and hearing Jason's exquisite talent with the saxophone recently in a private concert. I was extremely impressed with his talent and I think anyone wishing to learn to play the sax or just improve your own talents would benefit from Jason's dedication and expertise.

About Mark
I was born into a musical family and have always had a love of music from an early age. I started playing guitar at age 10 and piano a few years after that. My love for music led me to Visible Music College in Memphis TN where I graduated with a bachelor in guitar performance in 2014. I have been teaching private and group lessons to children and adults in both guitar and piano for 8 years. I have a very modern approach to music teaching, putting the emphasis on theory and technique to equip any student with the tools they need. I love seeing my students succeed and grow musically and most importantly to have fun playing any style of music!

About Fionn
I'm a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music, and I'm extremely passionate about helping others reach their potential! Learning an instrument can be a difficult process but with the right teacher it can be an extremely rewarding one. I understand that different students have different wants and needs and I'm 100% focused on delivering the right service for you!

I've spend the last few years performing on all sorts of stages, from intimate jazz clubs in Boston to Glastonbury, the largest festival in England. I appreciate the varied ways we all experience different types of music and I want to teach you music YOU want to learn. If you want to learn theory, that's fine too but I understand that not everyone wants to.

Let me know as soon possible so we can get started!

Fionn is the best bass player I could find for my son’s private lessons. I am a musician myself and I can see that his progress is outstanding! He is also having loads of fun with Fionn and they get along very well, as he is a very fun and trustworthy person.

I got bass lessons from Fionn in 2016, and it was fantastic. He's a brilliant teacher, and extremely patient. I switched from drums so he basically had to teach me music theory and how to read music too, which he did with ease. Really enjoyable lessons that I learned a lot from, I'd highly recommend Fionn as a teacher.

I just began playing guitar a year ago, but had terrible technique. I began taking lessons with Fionn and noticed a huge difference in my playing almost immediately. Fionn is an incredible teacher and so easy going, I couldn't recommend him enough! I have started playing in front of small audiences now which I never would have had the confidence to do before. He's also great value for money! All I can say is TAKE HIM!!

About Bob
I have spent the last 35 years teaching elementary and middle school band in a community known for its strong music program.
I love teaching music to students.. especially the art of playing trumpet. I try to incorporate fun and enthusiasm in each lesson while accomplishing some short term and long term goals. The student is my ultimate focus during the lesson time. Sometimes my students arrive and have a total different idea of concepts or literature in which they wish to make progress different from what I had planned. We are always able to accommodate these shifts in plans while reaching our lesson goals.
I enjoy working with students in the middle school ages. I find that this is when they make the greatest growth. There is nothing better that seeing a child's face as the bulbs go off concerning musical concepts. I believe tha
t together we can reach great heights in your musical development. I invite you to try s lesson and make music meaningful in your life.

Dr. Mealey was the man who taught me my very first lesson on the tuba oh so many years ago. I have since had the privilege of performing professionally in over 40 states and 30 countries around the world as a soloist and as a member of Boston Brass. The years of private lessons I took with Dr. Mealey gave me the perfect musical foundation to eventually pursue my dreams.

I still remember how much he cared for every single kid in each of his bands. There are people who are put on this earth to teach and he is one of those. I can't imagine how my life would have turned out if it weren't for Dr. Mealey.

I can't recommend studying with him any more highly.

I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Mealey for fourteen years, first as a colleague and then as his supervisor. Bob is a very skilled musician and teacher. He has had many years of experience bringing his students' performance levels to new heights. He works hard and expects the same from his students. This winning combination has helped to create some very skilled musicians, with many of them going on to enjoy playing in ensembles for many years.

It was always a pleasure to watch Dr. Mealey and his students perform in concert. The looks of joy were always evident with everyone in the house - members of the ensemble, its director, and the audience.

You can't go wrong with Dr. Mealey.

Dr. Mealey had a tremendous impact on all of my children. He truly instilled in them a love of music and gave them an opportunity to really experiment and express themselves. Because of their solid foundation with Dr. Mealey, they played throughout high school and some even into the college level marching band! Dr. Mealey is a class act and knows how to connect with his students!
