Students can except a stress free learning process. After learning the basic symbols of music notation, breathing, and simple rhythms the students will continue learning t
he techniques and fingerings on their chosen instrument. After mastering these basic concepts in music the children will then be given a chance to perform their songs to an instrumental accompaniment. This is good for the student who does not play in an ensemble to have the opportunity to play and listen to other moving parts.

I must say that Mr Daniel is doing a very good job. This was my third lesson, and he is not going through a set program but is teaching me where I'm at. So he is eliminating any waste time.
I will rate Mr. Daniel with 5 stars
*****GREAT JOB*****

Quincy C.

Fayetteville, GA

Quincy Chapman is a Jazz saxophonist based in Atlanta, Georgia. His love of the saxophone began at the young age of 10 while growing up in Fayetteville, Georgia. He is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree from Valdosta State University. Currently, he has an active performance schedule as a member of the Valdosta State New Jazz Ensemble, The
Cookout Jazz Combo, and as a freelance musician throughout Atlanta Georgia.

About Quincy

I'm a Jazz loving college student that attends Valdosta state university majoring in Jazz music performance. I've played saxophone for 8 years starting on Alto then switching over to tenor. I consider tenor saxophone my primary instrument. I've been lead tenor in my high schools jazz band for 3 years. In the past year (my high school senior year) I advanced to the second round of all state jazz with among the highest scores in the district. I just have a general love and passion for both my instrument and jazz. I would love to have the opportunity to pass on my knowledge and hopefully create a
deeper appreciation for the saxophone.

Quincy definitely loves what he's doing. He has a true passion for the saxophone which greatly enhanced my lessons experience. I took lessons with him a few years ago and I don't regret one minute of it.

Zac E.

Atlanta, GA

I'll help you nail that audition, learn that song, and improve your overall playing! And it'll be fun along the way!

About Zac

I've taught saxophone and clarinet lessons for over three years, working with over 50 students with ages ranging from 8 to 50+. My goal in teaching private lessons is to help my students excel at their instrument, learn about, and enjoy everything that learning to play music has to offer. I want to make lessons fun, engaging, and showing you how to get better at your instrument. My students have been placed in various honor bands at their schools and communities, as well excelled in their school programs.

I received my bachelor's degree from Kennesaw State University in saxophone performan
ce in 2013, and I recently received my Master's degree from UT Austin. I currently also serve as the coordinator for the Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra.

Joseph B.

Smyrna, GA

I want lessons to be fun but also challenging and disciplined. I am very adamant about starting with a set of warm up exercises every day followed by scale work. But I also want the student to play what they want to play, so I will either ask them to find a piece to be approved by me or I will find a piece for them based on what they like and are looking for. Every student is different so I will treat them as such! I teach Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bari saxophones.

About Joseph

Hi there! I just recently finished my Masters in Clarinet Performance from the University of Maryland and I would love to teach your student! I teach both clarinet and saxophone and have 5 years of teaching experience. I have worked for the Richardson School of Music, FAME, and the SHARP program at William Wirt Middle School in Maryland as well as Cedar Shoals, East Jackson, Decatur, and other high schools in Georgia. I am also an avid learner and I believe that no two students should be treated or approached in the same way. I have been very fortunate to have so many great teachers in my life
and I do my best to use everything they have taught me to help my students!

I received my Bachelor's of Music in Clarinet Performance from the University of Georgia and my Masters from the University of Maryland. Please feel free to visit my website at www.josephbeverly.com for recordings and more information about me!

I know Joseph's work as a wonderful clarinetist and chamber musician having worked with him closely at the University of Maryland as one of his professors. Joseph's command of the instrument and his artistry are absolutely outstanding and his personality, demeanor and diligence are such that I am confident he would be an excellent instructor. I recommend him most highly with no reservations!

Joseph is by far one of the most engaging, supportive and motivating clarinet tutor I have been blessed to learn from. He has a wicked ability to expertly tailor lessons and break down musical concepts to my learning ability. His lessons leave me excited and pumped. Fortissimo!

Joseph is an excellent, helpful teacher. During the semester of lessons I took with Joseph, he always had useful feedback and was consistently professional. He was accommodating with my busy schedule and responsive to any questions I had, even in-between lessons. I would wholeheartedly recommend Joseph for students of any skill level or age.
