About Nikole

My students come from different walks of life: children coming from school who bound excitedly to my lesson door, teenage artists who have the passion and vision but lack the technique, and adults who seek reprieve from the stress of work by learning an instrument that they've always wanted to play. I enjoy teaching them and watching them master the fundamentals while developing their own performance style (or even composing their own music)! I studied classical voice, piano, and theory privately and at Columbia University with notable musicians and teachers. My acting training includes a conservatory program and Meisner, Linklater (voice), and Shakespeare techniques. I also developed a keen ability to assess and shape talent from years of training, teaching, and performing, and ...

I have had an amazing experience with David. He has taken the time to truly get to know me and has set up our sessions based on what my goals are. He took his time to really understand what I needed to take my skills to a higher level. I feel that I was able to open up to him with total confidence and trust. I feel that he takes his time to really understand his students and mold his sessions to the needs of his students. I honestly feel that I have found a mentor who I will be reaching out to for all my needs.

Author and Motivator, Joyce Rennolds says...Phenomenal Results!

David, I am grateful to you for encouraging me to give up old beliefs about 'not being able to sing'. Since I am a Motivational Speaker and a New Thought Minister and teach an 'I can' attitude it never occurred to me to apply that idea to my singing voice. The results have been phenomenal. Thanks to your wonderful style of teaching I am now singing with confidence and poise in my church services. For my own pleasure I am becoming better and better at singing those wonderful Broadway tunes. Thank you for your encouragement, your professionalism, your unique style and your loving patience to work so diligently with me. You are the BEST!

Amazing Teacher and Gifted Musician

"I write this testimonial as a supporter of Mr. David Mashburn and his everlasting passion for implementing the love of music into young musicians like myself. I had the pleasure of being a student of Mr. Mashburn when I was in high school, and I can honestly say that experience helped enhance my skills as a pianist, singer and songwriter. His enthusiasm for the many faces of music, and his knowledge on how to properly develop one’s talent allowed me to grow as an artist. Through my academic matriculation through Morehouse College, Mr. Mashburn inspired a passion for writing and composing that led me to form a songwriting team named, Nemesis, under the direction of Russell Carter’s Artist Management company. I would not have found this passion and skill without the help of Mr. Mashburn, as he was the first one to encourage songwriting by helping me combine my skills as a pianist, singer and lyricist. He has been a teacher, counselor, and a friend to me. I credit my future successes to the humble beginnings as a student of Mr. Mashburn, and I am forever grateful to him. I hope he continues to spread the love of music to musicians everywhere."

Great Instruction for all levels

I am in my mid-thirties and have never had any formal musical instruction until I started taking lessons with Jordan a few months ago. I was a little nervous about starting the lessons, but Jordan made me very comfortable right away. You definitely can tell he knows music inside and out. He is also very helpful about incorporating just enough music theory into each lesson, so I can expand my knowledge of theory, but not so much that I get overwhelmed. I would definitely recommend Jordan to anyone looking for a great vocal or guitar instructor.

Great lessons

Jordan is an excellent instructor. I'm very pleased with the guidance that I have received thus far. With the limited amount of time spent in a 30min session, we always seem to cover a lot of ground. I would recommend lessons with him for any guitarist looking to take their guitar skills to the next level.

Excellent vocal coach

I've been taking lessons with Jared for a few months now, and I am very pleased with the progress. Jared is really easy to work with, get along with, and is very adaptable. His approach is built off of what you (the student) wants, and finding the best way to achieve that. I would recommend Jared as a vocal coach for any singing style, any gender, and anybody who wants to become a great singer.

Atlanta's best vocal coach.

I have had a number of music instructors, but Jared is by far the best. He has brought my singing to a new level and through his instruction, I feel like I've finally had a real breakthrough. Jared is extremely professional and easy to work with.
Ray A. Atlanta, GA

I just started teaching acting, but it I'm very eager to share what I know with beginners and students who perhaps have taken the basic classes and want to learn something more to elevate their skill.

Curriculum to include monologues and memorization technique, audition prep, character studies, study of Shakespearean theatre to modern styles (Pinter, O'Neill, Mamet, Albee, Beckett etc). Also open to study any playwrights or plays student is interested in.

About Ray

First off, I would like to say that I'm new to teaching. I realized that as many subjects and things that I love, I can share that passion with someone else and further their interest in a subject. I received my Bachelor in Fine Arts from The New School located in Manhattan, NY. I also attended an intensive 2 year program in musical theatre at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy also located in NYC. Subjects at AMDA included musical theatre history, ballet, tap, jazz, theatre dance, acting, acting for film, and voice. I currently don't have any teaching experience, but I'm looking for great students like you to get the ball rolling! I've got a lot of drive in increasing a student's aptitude on a myriad of subjects!

antony R. Decatur, GA

I started teaching Theatre classes in 2011 at Lexington Children's Theatre. While I do not believe you can teach someone how to act, I do believe you can teach someone how to unlock their natural abilities and skills.

My Philosophy is to begin with that you have already at your disposal, your person. I believe to begin to be the best, you must know you, your skills and your natural abilities. Then we build from there.
