I'm an experienced and dedicated musician, having played with Orchestras and Chamber groups throughout my state. My lessons are focused on relaxation, and am as laid back or strict as the student needs.

I was initially skeptical about taking online music lesson for my son. But Nicholas is very methodical and very attentive so that being online does not deter the lesson quality. Highly recommend him.

David P.

Atlanta, GA

Suzuki method
Have been teaching 17 years

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

The best.

Even to me (who is a beginner), it's clear that he understands music and its theory on a deeper level than most. He's been working to develop my basic technical skills (eg scales, chords, etc.) but also to learn songs that I love and listen to everyday. He's patient, friendly, not-rushed and just a generally all-around great teacher and great person. Highly recommend!!!

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 :)

Sara T.

Buford, GA

I teach using ideas from the Suzuki method but I'm flexible to fit the needs of my students. Music should be fun and rewarding yet teach life lessons such as diligence and confidence. My specialty is classical music but I am able to teach different genres of music. I feel that classical music is very important and I require my students to learn a few classical pieces. However, I love when a student gets excited over a piece of music and I encourage them to learn different genres.

About Sara

I have been playing piano and violin for 15 years. Due to my strong background in classical music, I joined the Erie Jr. Philharmonic as a first violinist where I performed with them for seven years. During those years, myself and my fellow musicians, had the opportunity to play with not only the Erie Philharmonic but also the Pittsburgh Youth Symphony.
Due to my experience with the Jr. Philharmonic I also played with the PMEA district and regional orchestra for two years.

As a pianist, I worked for four prominent churches over the years as the Director of Music where I had the responsib
ility of selecting the songs and rehearsing them.
I was also given the opportunity to accompany the local high school choir for two years for the winter and spring concerts and have played a variety of different genres.

For three years I have been teaching in my home studio, the Joyful Noise Studio. Over the past year I have begun working at the Sandy Springs Music Studio in Atlanta and also the Sound of Music Studio in Buford, GA. Music has always been an important part of my life and I love to give others the opportunity to learn a skill that will follow them their entire lives

As a former mentor of Sara's, I know she is a great teacher! She has been involved with music since she was 5, when she began playing piano. She added violin when she turned 7 and continued with both throughout her childhood and into her adult life.. She has wonderful orchestral experience as well as sacred/religious music. Because of her love for music, she is thrilled to be able to open young children’s eyes and minds to the joys found in music.

Shalom B.

Atlanta, GA

Students will learn how to be creative in their hearing along with their theory and posture skills, they will be trained for performance levels that will be directed toward stage presence skills and professional musical body language. They will also be trained to look at their skills from a global perspective and have a universal approach to the concepts that are handled in class.

About Shalom

I have been teaching classical and church music for a long time. I follow both Suzuki and western classical, but I prefer the Suzuki method, I am in America right now to experiment and create a new genre of music where I want to mix traditional Indian music with American bluegrass music.

The other subject that I can teach is Hindi. I am Indian and since I did my education in India we had to do Hindi as a subject till high school. So I can teach the language up until the intermediate level.
