Alex N.

Bishop, GA

About Alex

I have 15 years experience playing guitar and drums and love nothing more than to share my knowledge of music with students who are eager to learn. My passion for music developed at an early age and has only grown from there. I have had the privilege of learning from excellent and extremely talented teachers. I enjoy playing at local venues and watching my students joyfully succeed.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you have never picked up an instrument or if you just want to fine tune your musical ability, I will gladly meet you wherever you are in your musical journey. As patience is alway
s an important aspect in learning a new instrument, it is also one of my strengths as I teach students the basics or the advanced techniques with guitar or drums. Learn at your own pace and learn to play any song you want!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Takamine ES45C Jasmine Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar, Deadwood Arch-top Electric Guitar, Fender Mustang I V.2 20-watt 1 x 8" DSP Combo Amplifier, Sonor Force 3005 Full Maple Kit.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitars, drums. I am willing to share my equipment if the student does not have their own.

*** Specialties ***
I like to use the Orff method for children, the Suzuki method to encourage and praise the student for their accomplishments, and the MMCP method to give the student the freedom to improvise, create, and investigate his/her own musical talents.

Alex is extremely patient with my son who is 9 years old. He makes it fun for him and uses music that my son loves. He took his time to ask what type of music he would like and is teaching him based on that. After only three lessons my son is really starting to pick up on basic cords. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone that is interested in learning guitar. My son really enjoys his time with him.

About Thomas

Music has been the primary focus since second grade. After completing a Masters in Music Education from Florida State, I have directed High school chorus, and served in the music ministry in a few churches. I have taught piano and guitar to ages 5 through adult for around 8 years. My focus in teaching is to help you make your instrument one in which you can enjoy your entire life. I start where you are, beginner through advanced, and assist in making music a passion in your life as it has been for me.

I currently serve as Assistant Director of Worship Arts at Gainesville FUMC where I d
irect multiple groups, play organ and piano in worship, manage youth music and support in the overall worship arts ministry.

Taylor R.

Jefferson, GA

About Taylor

Hello! My name is Taylor R. I am a composer, performer and teacher. I have a profound passion for teaching and have been teaching private and group lessons for over eight years. I get to know each of my students personally so that I can tailor my teaching methods to meet their specific needs and present them with what they need to know in ways they can easily understand. The concepts and skills I teach my students during our lessons will aid them greatly in their non-musical lives as well; discipline, confidence, focus, etc. I always make sure my students get the information, guidance and reso
urces they need in order to be successful.

In 2014 I was accepted to the Royal Academy of Music in London for composition. I have written for groups and soloists such as The Canadian Brass, Achilles Liarmakopulous, Larry Larson (principal trumpet Kitchener Waterloo Symphony), Steve Park (principal horn Mormon Tabernacle Square Orchestra), John Falcone (principal bassoon "Symphony de Austria"), Nigel Wood (Soprillo Sax Specialist), Niccola Mazzanti (teacher at the “G.Verdi” music school in Prato) and many more.
