Jessa D. Cumming, GA

From your very first note, through your introduction to Bach. I teach with a traditional method and expect my students to take responsibility for their own success.

About Jessa

At eight years old my great-aunt offered to pay for me to take an extracurricular activity and a little voice whispered to me - take piano lessons. As soon as I started lessons I was recognized for my talent. I taught my skills at the piano only 4 years after that, teaching my siblings the basics of what I already knew. And I never stopped. I was mentored by one of the foremost teachers in all of Vermont, USA. She taught me about how to successfully teach young pianists to learn the piano. Today I teach piano in my home to a growing number of students. *** Lesson Details *** Students should feel relaxed with me and enjoy the time we take to learn the piano. I tailor my style to each student. Some students need immediate correction and forthright instruction, while others need patience as

Great Teacher!!

My 10 year old Son, has been taking lessons from Jessa for about 6 weeks now - he has learnt in leaps and bounds from Jessa. She is very patient, kind and very precise in explaining to my son, she is very clear and has a great way with children. I have appreciated her professionalism, and especially helping him believe in himself and build his self confidence. This has been a very positive experience in many ways. I highly recommend Jessa as a piano teacher - we love her!!!
Stephen M. Alpharetta, GA

I like to teach each lesson, for both voice and piano, by spending equal time on ear-training/sight-reading (sight-singing), technique, and repertoire. Especially for beginners, I highly encourage ear-training as part of their practice time at home because it teaches all musicians to internalize the music before their fingers touch the keys or they open their mouths to sing. I can honestly say it's one of the most valuable musical skills I've learned.

When I'm teaching piano technique, many students are surprised to learn there's more to it than pressing their fingers into the keyboard at the correct time. I'll frequently talk about using full arm weight, tilting their hands from side-to-side, playing shallow on the keys to build speed, and many other techniques of the trade that help pianists stay comfortable at the piano while showing them how to make the most beautiful sounds possible.

As for repertoire, I'm fond of using the Faber and Alfred method books with my piano ...

About Stephen

Since he was seven years old, Mr. M. knew he wanted to be a singer. Once he heard the glorious voices of the three tenors (Domingo, Carreras, and Pavarotti), he knew he must spend his life learning to make those awe-inspiring sounds. It was at this time when he started singing in church choir, and Mr. M. highly encourages all aspiring singers to join a community choir or church choir as soon as they’re able. Throughout his musical education at Georgia State University (Bachelors and Masters Degrees), he gained a firm musical foundation in vocal technique, ear-training, sight-reading, music theory, and a renewed appreciation for making music as part of a group. In addition, he had the good fortune to learn from some of the most phenomenal musicians in Atlanta: Dwight Coleman, Dr. ...

Mr. McCool is an excellent teacher! He just naturally shares his love for music with his students and this is a beautiful thing to experience. He is always patient and encouraging during our son's piano lessons. He is firm and serious when necessary but always friendly and kind. His teaching style is absolutely perfect for our 12 year old son who is motivated so much more by encouragement than by criticism. Stephen has a gift with children...he shows a sincere interest in what's going on in our son's life (they always have a little chat before his lesson begins). We are fortunate to have have found a wonderful music mentor for our son. I would highly recommend Mr. Stephen McCool to anyone interested in voice and/or piano lessons.

Mr. Stephen M. is the best vocal teacher I have ever had. Originally, he was a vocal teacher at my school Woodward Academy. When he told me he was leaving Woodward, I made arrangements to continue taking voice lessons with him, because of how talented he was. He can truly change voices. He will push any student to reach their full potential. Most vocal teachers only focus on the basics: pitch, rhythm, and diction, but he goes beyond that and focuses on the basics as well as more advanced concepts. He will teach you all about posture, tone, emotion, sound placement, vowels, mouth shaping, and the history of the music. Although I am leaving for college, I will truly miss taking lessons with Mr. Stephen M. and hope that my musical experience in college will be as good as the one he provided me with in high school. If you want to take your voice to the next level, Mr. Stephen M. is the only option!

I have been first trained as a professional opera singer as a child in Korea. For many years, I have performed on stage. When I came to America, I have continued to pursue education in voice (and piano) at Troy University and at Baptist College of Florida while seeking other degrees.

My grandson's best piano teacher

My grandson loves Mrs. Kyungee style of teaching. She is nice and knowledgeable, inspiring, and friendly. She is the right person to teach my grandson. Her passion for music is contagious. She inspires confidence and hard work which is the road to success.
Her daughter is her legacy. At the end of the my grandson's first piano lesson her daughter was gracious to play for us. Her performance was so impressive that it brought tears to my eyes.
I want to thank both of them from the bottom of my heart!

Good teacher

Hyungee is extremely talented, passionate and professional. My children are teenagers and they feel very comfortable with her. She is sweet and nurturing with them, and patient. She also has a great disposition and sense of humor. She is intuitive to their needs and is very encouraging. I do have a little difficulty understanding her, but my children do not.

Top notch teacher.

Norman is an excellent teacher. I have been with him for just over a month now and I have came leaps and bounds. It's my first instrument that I have tried to learned and I can read music and play duets with him. He's friendly and very knowledgeable of the material also. I would say that in a couple months I will be dazzling my friends and family. So if your thinking about an instructor then Norman would be a great investment.

Working with Mary Frances has been absolutely amazing! With her guidance, I have obtained better breathing skills and correct posture for singing. I came to a lesson one day and I had infected tonsils. She gave the best advice on how to take care of my vocal cords!
