David P.

Atlanta, GA

I've been teaching guitar for almost 20 years.

I am comfortable teaching from a book, but I generally teach guitar based upon the student's musical tastes and goals.

I can get beginners playing songs quickly and I can develop finger skills, soloing, and more advanced chording in students with more experience.

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

Our seven-year-old has loved learning from David. His engagement has been patient and responsive in a way that is encouraging our little guy to grow in his understanding of the violin and music in general. Our kid looks forward to his weekly lessons!

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!!!

James L.

Douglasville, GA

I have been teaching for over 8 years, with 18 years experience as a musician. My students are welcome and encouraged to pick out songs they would like to learn. I have found that students who are excited and happy with learning songs they pick out tend to practice more and achieve their goals.

About James

James, a 3rd generation musician and teacher, graduated from Atlanta Institute of Music in 2008 with a focus on musical performance, theory and composition. He has experience teaching a variety of ages from 5 to 80 as well as students with special needs.

Local lessons are offered at Jackson's Music in Douglasville, GA - (Westmoreland Plaza); and at my home studio in Decatur, GA - (Bridlewood Cir); and in home lessons offered within a 10 mile radius of Decatur, Ga.

"Hey everyone, I am always willing to take on new students no matter what age and or experience. I usually average around 40
+ students a week so go and find a time that works for you!"

Students who take lessons in person will be able to take advantage of programs such as Riffstation (a slow-down audio file program to make learning easier, faster, and not to mention more fun.)

Students who enroll in online Skype classes can look forward to personal music material handed out through email. Students are also offered play-along pieces at the end of every lesson!

Lars N.

Atlanta, GA

I've been a writing, recording, performing and touring artist for 21 years now. I play in a national band and also do singer/songwriter solo work.
All of it came from learning how to play the guitar. I firmly believe that anybody can learn this, if they want to put in the work and effort. I guess the saying is: ''you don't work music, you play it, but it takes work to learn to play it''. Anyways, I've gathered a lot of experience over the years and still learning everyday. I really enjoy the teaching aspect of music and to make those musical connections with people. I think Keith Richards said it best when asked about the best part of being a musician,: ''you pass it on''. I will stand by that. Looking forward to meeting you!

About Lars

Hey...my name is Lars and I am looking forward in teaching you guitar. I've been teaching guitar for about 5 years. I fully believe that anybody can learn to play well, if they work hard, stick with it and has the passion for it. Because I did. It took a lot of work for me and did not come easy. It's never easy, nor should it be, because a person is learning something real and not just pushing buttons. But the rewards of getting better are fantastic, a sense of accomplishment and confidence is being built as a result of that hard work. And of course it's really fun and in my opinion the best t
hing in the world.

Samantha D.

Smyrna, GA

I tailor lessons to what and how the student wants to learn! I can teach any style, skill level and make lessons fun for everyone. I can proudly say I have a high success rate in teaching all ages and have many students who started out as beginners and are now learning at the advanced level. Guitar is an instrument that you can take anywhere and is the perfect instrument to showcase musical ability and passion. I'm looking forward to working with you!

About Samantha

As a musician, performer, songwriter and teacher my goal is to share my passion and talent for music while helping others achieve their musical goals. I have experience working with all ages and skill levels. I will teach you anything from the basics of playing guitar (acoustic or electric) or how to properly use your voice to reading, writing, creating and performing songs the way you have always dreamed of. I provide a compassionate and inspiring learning environment as well as motivated lessons where each student grows and feels cared for. I have built student and family relationships that
have lasted for years! If you have a passion for music now is the time to make your dreams come true. I would love to work with you to make that happen! If you want to work with someone who has performed, experienced the music business, worked with many different people and musicians, studied and has loved what they have done for years I would love to hear from you!

Singing · Online
When I was a little girl I always to sing. Unfortunately, I was not blessed with the natural ability to sing. One night I was out with some friends checking out live music, and I met Sam Dicesare. She was kind enough to talk to me after her show, and I expressed my love for singing. I asked if she gave lessons and SHE DOES!!! Over the last 8 months I have been taking weekly vocal lessons from Sam. And I see a huge improvement in my singing voice!(I'm sure my dogs and neighbors thank her as well!!) She never got frustrated with me in the beginning while I struggled to stay on key. It's obvious she wants her students to succeed. She has been a huge help and is always there too answer my questions!!!

I have been taking lessons from Sam for about 4 years! I started out not knowing anything about guitar and now I am playing shows often and pursuing my dream!!! Sam is such a fun instructor and really breaks things down in the lessons making it very easy to learn! So whatever skill level you are, Sam Dicesare will be able to take your guitar playing to a whole other level. That girl is out of this world!!!!
