*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to learn how to fluently read music from a beginning level through a professional level; how to properly produce a quality sound on their instrument; how to properly hold their instrument and care for it; and my students learn how to set goals for themselves for a lifetime of music learning and performance. You will learn how to play your instrument in a nurturing environment. I typically use the Suzuki method for bowed stringed instruments and the Hal Leonard and Mel Bay method for Guitar. The Essential elements method for Trumpet and the Albans conservatory method for Trumpet for more advanced players. The Bastien beginning music theory method and supplemental etudes and solos are taught based on the individual student's needs. After three to six months, a student of mine will know several solo pieces, musical scales and arpeggios and at least one or more etudes.

*** Studio Equipment ***
church: piano teach lessons in choir room, spacious, tables and chairs, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
A music stand, method book and solo book, tuner, and metronome. I expect the student to provide the instrument, invest in the method book and solo books, a pencil, and a notebook. The student should eventually invest in a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Gospel, Contemporary, Jazz, and rhythm & blues.

Kyungee M.

Duluth, GA

About Kyungee

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.

In addition to my main focus on vocal training, I am professionally trained to play instruments such as piano, guitar, flute, and violin. I have learned to play piano and guitar to initially accompany my own singing, but I have continued to study these instruments to this day. I have been a main church pianist
, wedding pianist, collaboration pianist, and etc. For flute and violin, I have been a member of ensemble groups and orchestra (and symphonic band) and performed on various occasions.

These training has allowed me to start a music academy in Korea from 1990-1996. There, I have taught all the instruments I have learned: piano, violin, cello, flute, guitar, and voice. It started small, but it grew rapidly and before I came to US in 1996, I had over 250 students. I had hired 6 more teachers, one for each division. My students came as beginners and would leave as educated musicians, who entered competitions, performed in public events and at concerts, and sought degrees in music.

In US, I had a small music studio for many years in Alabama. My students have entered AMTA competitions for state of Alabama, sonata competitions, and many others. Some have won, and others have lost. Those who won smiled and those who lost cried, but all returned with good experiences.

Now in Georgia, I am starting to teach again. I hope to offer my new students same amount of care and education borne out of experience that I have provided for many, many years.

*** Lesson Details ***
Teaching is my passion. I have taught music for over 20 years to students of all ages, of all backgrounds, and of various levels of training. When I teach, I want to make sure that my students are enjoying the process of creating music.

Learning something new, or continuing the education may be difficult or frustrating at times. This may encourage students to give up prematurely. However, when learning is a fun experience, students can learn to truly appreciate the joy of music. I can offer you with this opportunity.

My lessons will typically consist of 3 main sections: music theory, practice (on instrument of choice), and art of performance. The degree of introductions to these will vary depending on the interest and the training level of the student. I may be using Suzuki or other curriculums that are organized and appropriate to the student's learning curve. I will accommodate the musical needs of everyone.

In terms of teaching style, I am patient, friendly, and accommodating. I like to enjoy each lessons with my students, so I will be smiling alot. It'll be a minimally stressful environment.

If you would like to have me as your music instructor, please feel free to ask for me and we'll get started on our musical journey together.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Personal studio w/ flute, violin, cello, piano, and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
church music and classical music

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!

Kristin T.

Lawrenceville, GA

I teach my students the Russian Method of playing so they can play with confidence and I help my student develop their musical artistry.

About Kristin

Teaching Style:

In my lessons I emphasize both technical skill and musical creativity. I use the Russian Method to instill my students with good technique and tone and I make sure that my students are confident on their scales and etudes. I try to chose pieces for my students that encourage artistic expression and I aim to help my students develop their own musical creativity.

Musical Experience:

I teach and perform on the violin, viola, and cello. I was a principal in the Gwinnett County Youth Symphony Orchestra, assistant principal in the Kendall Youth Symphony Orchestra, and an a
ssistant principal in the Emory Youth Symphony Orchestra. Currently I play violin in the Georgia State University Orchestra, perform composer's new works in the Atlanta area, play violin in contemporary worship bands, and I am also a sectional coach for Couch Middle School. I am completing my Bachelors degree in Music Education at Georgia State University and I hope to soon teach orchestra in the public school system.
