Ronald A.

Morrow, GA

Bass Guitar instruction customized to the student with regard to:

age,
degree of dedication,
practice time available
skill level,
musical interests.

At the core, each student will master the instrument. All students will learn:

how music works and how to apply it to the bass.

About Ronald

I am an experienced professional with a background in music performance, education, composition, theory and arranging.

*** Lesson Details ***
Few musicians or music students have identical goals, musical interests or physical size. So, It is NECESSARY to customize the course of study to meet student requirements. There are common issues for any serious pursuit of learning involving the guitar; right and left hand technique, fingerboard knowledge, chord knowledge, reading and interpretation.

However, to progress, it is also necessary for the student to practice daily.

I try to maint
ain a healthy balance between the focus on performance and technical issues.

Linda L.

Tucker, GA

I have played bass professionally, with various bands, and can teach many styles, including, rock, pop, jazz, and blues.

I treat each student as an individual, and vary my teaching methods to meet the needs, learning styles and preferences of the student.

About Linda

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, music stand, paper and pencil, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
On guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I pr
efer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory. When using an electronic keyboard, I include more rhythm development, arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an electronic keyboard, in the lessons.
English: I am qualified, by years of tutoring, to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

Linda is incredibly experienced and knowledgeable in guitar and other matters of music. Her background and broad understanding of music and theory is why I chose her to be my instructor. She was able to pinpoint my areas of opportunity and craft a specialized plan to get me where I want to be. I really enjoyed my 1st lesson with Linda and am looking forward to continuing.

David P.

Atlanta, GA

I've been teaching bass for nearly 20 years. As a professional bassist playing 5-8 gigs weekly for about 10 years, I learned a wide range of bass lines and playing styles.
I can help bassists of all levels improve and diversify their playing technique and awareness of all things bass!

About David

I grew up in Birmingham, AL, Boston, MA, and Cleveland, OH, and was classically trained on violin in all three cities by members of their respective orchestras. I began studying theory in 7th grade at The Alabama School of Fine Arts. I continued theory lessons while in Boston at the New England Conservatory of Music. I attended Summer music programs at Apple Hill (New Hampshire) and Sewanee (Tennessee) and have extensive experience in orchestra, quartet, and chamber group environments.

Upon graduating Emory university in 1992 I played professionally in Destin, FL as a bassist, guitarist,
violinist, and vocalist. I performed as bassist and backing vocalist with "Salty Dog" for nearly a decade. I am the co-founder of the Destin, FL band "Beach Mice." We perform for several weddings, corporate events, and benefits every year. Beach Mice is also popular on the festival circuit on the Emerald Coast.

I relocated to Atlanta in November of 2013, and currently perform weddings, and at various restaurants and events in the Atlanta area.

I have taught individuals and group lessons on violin, bass, and guitar since 1997 and for several consecutive years at Playground Music in Fort Walton Beach.

I have several videos available on YouTube, and a website which is easily located through a simple Google search.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you fulfill your musical goals and ambitions. Happy Playing - Cheers! dp

I had a great experience with David. He is really patient while also making you push your own limits. I learned a lot in the first class and I'm hooked.

He is very knowledgable about music and at times, I had to ask him to slow down and explain some of the terminology but at the same time it gave me the impetus to go and learn more. Loved the experience :)

Ross H.

Atlanta, GA

I been teaching guitar professionally for 4 years. I stress the importance of learning the WHOLE song and singing and playing at the same time so you can perform it and play with other musicians on different instruments. I also specialize in theory, composition, and improvising. I can write tabs, arrangements, and backing tracks specifically suited to your needs.

About Ross

I live to learn and teach music! Nothing is is "beneath me". I always learn more from beginners than experts- and that is the goal of teaching for me: to learn and enjoy music.

I've been taking piano, guitar, and drum lessons since I was 5. My parents always told me that if I worked as hard on my schoolwork as I did on music, I would make all A's. I went to a Rock and Roll camp in California for three years when I was about 12 where I learned all about playing in a band. Since then I've always been in a band or two or three - totally original indie/rap music, bluegrass, bar bands playing cl
assic rock covers, Bossa nova, and many more.

I have an Associate degree in Audio Technology from SAE, and I studied Jazz guitar at Georgia State University. I have two years of experience teaching guitar, drums, piano, and voice lessons for a local Atlanta company called Courtnay & Rowe.
