About Shannon

Music is my passion, my hobby, my career and my gift. I have been performing since age 7 and teaching for the last 25 years. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in music and love to share my knowledge and experience with all ages and aptitudes - even special needs. My approach to teaching is fun but serious, laid-back but encouraging, demanding but forgiving. I teach students how to be disciplined with their practice and how to make the most of their limited time. *** Lesson Details *** I can help you achieve your goals! For those who want a well-rounded music education, I include music theory (note and rhythm reading), technique, ear training, improvisation and performance practice in my curriculum using a variety of methods. I enjoy working with adults interested in ...

I wish school was this fun

Ms. Shannon's lessons are fun and exciting. I wasn't sure if I was going to like taking lessons even though I did want to learn to play. She makes the lessons fun and she is very patient and not intimidating.

builds confidence

Shannon is an excellent teacher. She makes the lessons fun. She helps the student feel confident in their abilities. Shannon encourages the student to meet the challenges they face. She understands each of her student's strengths and challenges and develops individualized lessons to meet their needs. She helps students feel comfortable during her lessons and makes sure they can practice independently with confidence. She hosts recitals so her students have chance to show off their skills and socialize with each other. I would highly recommend Shannon as a piano teacher.

Very knowledgeable and willing to do the research if you present with a new challenge. I have been a singer most of my life, with only limited training. I had reached a point where my voice was failing. She has helped me to reconstruct my approach to singing and has saved my voice. I am in my 40's but am now singing better and more consistently that I have at anytime in my life! Highly Recommended!

Whether it is Playing guitar, Singing, ( or both), or Playing piano, I will help you get where you want to be. I do incorporate in the Lesson Plan, learning Music Theory to the applied instrument.

She encourages and gives detailed instuctions and is genourous with her time. And plays guitar very well at a level I could only dream of. She helped me remember a song I knew. And taught me different ways to play songs that I already know.

I found Aimee through TakeLessons after not being very satisfied with my daughter's previous guitar teacher. From my first conversation with Aimee, I knew choosing her was going to be the right decision. Her experience and expertise shows as she knows how to teach and is good at it. My wife and I feel blessed to have found Aimee and that she is our daughter's teacher now. We are planning to have her start teaching our youngest son piano.

My son, Joe, has been taking guitar lessons from Mrs. Aimee since he was in kindergarten. He is now in third grade. In second grade, he also started taking voice lessons from Mrs. Aimee. She has been a God-sent to us! She is a professional, hard-working guitar instructor. She also worked with our crazy schedule and taught Josiah through Skype a few times when we could not make it to her location on time. Mrs. Aimee is a consistent teacher who also is very patient and loving with her students. She made the lessons fun and interesting for my son by incorporating the kind of music genres that he liked. She is not only Josiah's guitar teacher but has now become a friend of the family.

John C. Dallas, GA

About John

I have played/studied guitar for almost 15 years. As a musician I have been a part of several different bands and have played at venues all over the southeast. As a teacher I have been giving lessons for almost 10 years and have been very successful in developing techniques and strategies to enhance the skills of beginner and intermediate guitar players. I am actively involved with the event Lutheran Happening of The South for 10 years where I have served as a Musician and Director. From 2004 to 2006 I served as the lead guitarist for the Lassiter High School FCA. I studied and learned the ins and outs of music theory while I was a member of the National Championship Lassiter High School Marching band for four years. In college I was a member of the Wesley Foundation ...

I had the great pleasure of being able to play guitar with John at Lutheran Happening of the South this past Labor Day weekend. It was my first time playing guitar at Happening and I needed to learn the ropes. John was busy both playing music while also being a director for the weekend, but he still made time to practice the songs with me. The music and the entire weekend came together splendidly. If you're looking for a great guitar instructor, you've come to the right web page.

I took lessons with John for a year and a half.

After I bought my first guitar my parents suggested I take lessons. I did not really know what to expect from taking lessons and honestly I did not think I would get very much out of it. I was wrong...

John is a great guitar teacher because he does not do cookie cutter lessons. Each week my lessons were tailored to my goals and progress.

During my first lesson John spent extra time with me talking about what I wanted to get out of guitar lessons, and together we wrote down daily, weekly, and monthly goals (my parents really appreciated this because I started doing this with everything and I am now in college and do this with my classes). For me, music was kind of like a different language but John was able to explain things to me in a simplified way so I could really grasp the concepts.

The first 2 to 3 lessons I worked on basic chords and strum patterns and the techniques I learned jump started my abilities. I exceeded my first month goals and it was not long before I was playing along to a few of my favorite songs. Once I got down the basic chords and strum patterns I learned scales, complex chords, and how to read music and tabs.

If you are really wondering what learning guitar is like, I will tell you that it is difficult and frustrating. My favorite thing about having John as a teacher is that he would call me once a week in between my lessons to see how I was doing, answer questions, and talk through my frustrations. He does this with all of his students and it was evident to myself and my parents that John truly does care about helping his students meet their goals.

I don't think you will come across many guitar teachers like this. Anytime I come across a family member or friend who wants to learn guitar or has a child who wants to learn guitar I send them right over to John.

I highly recommend John to anyone looking for a guitar teacher who will absolutely help you to become a better musician.
