About Ian
A lifelong musician and songwriter, Ian S. has extensive experience teaching guitar and piano to students age 3 and up both as a private music instructor and as a staff music instructor at the Institute of Music for Children. With 28 years of experience on the guitar and 32 years on piano, Ian has studied and performed with several award-winning music artists, and has written, recorded, and produced over one hundred songs. He plays and teaches a variety of styles on both the guitar and the piano, from classical to jazz to rock. Ian is patient, friendly, and loves sharing the gift of music.

Ian was the guitarist in the Princeton University Jazz Ensemble for 3 seasons, was selected from a nationwide pool of musicians to perform at a special music event at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and was the recipient of the New Jersey Gove
rnor's Award in Arts Education for the category of Instrumental Music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very laid back and friendly, and I want you or your child to be as comfortable as possible during our lessons. You or your child will develop confidence and musical intelligence. I will make your lessons fun, enjoyable, and effective. Boredom is not an option! Music is fun... let's keep it that way.

The teaching methods I use will be custom-tailored to your individual needs, personality and specific musical goals. If it's guitar or piano you want to learn, I want to get you playing exactly what you want to be playing as soon as possible. That's what you're here for, and that's what I'm here for. I will make it happen. If it's songwriting that you want to learn, I will help you access that place inside of you that is dying to express itself creatively, and will teach you techniques to harness that energy and translate it successfully into musical expression.

You can expect to learn all the basics of music theory, proper playing techniques, improvisation and spontaneous musical expression, and I will help you develop your "ear" so you can figure out songs you like just by listening to them. This is all about you and your goals, and I want you to achieve them in a fun and engaging way.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: Upright piano, guitars, amps, keyboard, percussion

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in pop, rock, classical, jazz, blues, folk, fingerstyle (guitar), etc. I also teach improvisation and songwriting, and try to develop the student's ear for figuring out songs they like on their own.

First lesson went FAR better than I would have predicted. I needed help accessing Lydia, on line. She was helpful and patient. It worked! I look forward to being a harp candidate for a chair at the Boston Symphony Orchestra. There may be one open during my harp tutelage with Lydia.

Aside from being an excellent musician, Josh is personable and easy to be around. Having someone who is not only proficient at teaching, but who makes the learning atmosphere relaxed and comfortable has been incredibly helpful to my progress. I'd highly recommend taking any sort of lesson with Josh!

It has been about 20 years since I last took piano lessons, but recently decided that it was something I wanted to get back into and Josh has been awesome! He’s been very accommodating and we’ve found a good combination of working on lesson-like material, tempo, and on pieces that I’ve wanted to learn how to play. He is very attentive and takes notes throughout the lesson so that we make sure that we always start back up at the same place each time. I’ve been very happy working with Josh over the past few months and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to play the piano again or for the first time!

I've never met a musical instructor as good as Mrs. Bailey in my entire life. After my learning career ended with Mrs. Bailey, I've yet to find a teacher that shares the enthusiasm, passion, and love for music. Not only will she teach you musical lessons, but life lessons that you will hold and cherish for the rest of you life. To whomever reading this, you're putting your musical education in amazing hands.

About Jay
My name is JL. I am a signed GhostWriter, Producer, Consultant, Vocal Producer to the Stars & Activist for Equality. I have worked

some of your favorites artists; some on a professional level and others a strong friendship. A little background of my history…. I was born

and raised in VA and attended the Governor School of Performing arts at Old Dominion University. I got my start in the entertainment

business as an Account Executive for Max Media ( home of 5 Radio Stations 92.9 -The Wave, 97.3 -Eagle, 1310 -Star, 94.1- ESPN & Hot 100.5 ). After being noticed for my work ethic , drive

and goal setting skills I was offered the opportunity to advance my career as a Personal Assistant to the Tour Manager for John Legend. Immediately I was around the cream of the crop and even spent time learning the business from the “LEGENDS.”


You will learn more about my history later (an NDA agreement must be signed ).

I recently moved from Dumbo, New York (Shout out to Hov for putting us on the map ) to Buford, GA

to raise my family. After spending 18 months working out of the Universal Music building

and completing a project, I decided to move to Georgia to be closer to my family and be a stay at home father.

I have an amazing son named Jeylen who is 5 years old.

I have been active in the music business as a ghostwriter and consultant for about 6 years now.

I have worked with some incredible Grammy Award Artist and Producers.

I have been media trained under the careful watch of Yvette Noel Schure, of Schure Media (Beyoncé’s Publicist), Quincy Jackson (Former VP of Marketing/ Columbia), Nate Johnson (LMFAO Management),

Jimmy Vellutato (VP of Sony/ATV), and the list goes on.

I wanted to start an Artist Development firm that specializes in the Business of Music.

I want to be a positive light to new and upcoming artists. This business can be overwhelming and a lot of artists

don't really understand, become misguided, and are unsuccessful because of their lack of knowledge.

I would like to do my part and help bring some solid steps to achieving something greater than where you

presently stand. I have been in your shoes MANY, MANY, MANY times. I've searched for a way into the business

and it cost me way more than money, and through my experiences and lessons learned I would love to empower you.

Last year my team and I were able to secure a Record & Publishing deal based on this PROVEN 12-Step Curriculum and the Artist’s DEBUT LP is due to be released Spring 2018 thru Sony.

I have the relationships needed to get you to the next level.

I'm not here to sell dreams or give empty promises I am here to empower you to be NEXT!

To keep it 100 with you if you don't have what it takes we both will know at the initial consultation.

I'm not a believer in time wasted.

Integrity is my honor.

Become the better Version of you today and let's get to work.

I promise you, you will soar if you put the time in and follow the 12-week course.

Blessings,

JL

About Colin
Hi! My name is Colin Lester Fleming - and I am first and foremost, a musician. I grew up falling in love with records and playing drums in rock bands and orchestras. I was first chair All-State in high school as a percussionist, and started my official musical journey playing in orchestras and studying percussion. I went to Boston University on a full-ride for this.

Really though, what I was studying was sound. I was always fascinated with sound and specifically with how it is people recorded it and played it for the world. This passion and curiosity for recording ended up pulling me into the studio. It was when I transferred to Berklee College of Music that my passion for recording met some education! I studied Music Production and Engineering at Berklee, and my love for recording was cemented.

I spent (and still do spend!) as muc
h time as possible in the studio honing my craft. I have my name on many projects in the Boston-area, New York City and LA as producer, engineer, mix engineer, and assistant engineer. I am also an experienced and skilled audio technician, and I make, sell (and repair!) analog recording gear.
I am constantly finding bands to record so we can both play in the studio together - the band in the room, and me in the control room!

Like I said - first and foremost I am a musician, and I want to make music, I want to share the gift of recorded music and share my tools and toys so we can all create music and art in the best way possible.
