Casey C.

Atlanta, GA

About Casey

Hi I'm a 29 year old professional musician that has worked hard to become a first call drummer for performance, instruction, and studio session work in the Atlanta area. Over the past 5 years I have toured nationally, recorded with countless regional, national and local artists, and have gained a positive reputation in the Atlanta community as a unique, innovative, and passionate drum teacher. I studied music at The University of Mississippi and I am qualified to teach numerous styles including Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, Jazz, Electronica, World and many others. I have years of experience teaching
private and group lessons (I'm a recurring Camp Counselor in Summer music programs). I offer inspired beginning drummers of all ages the chance to learn the art of drum set playing within a basic, relaxed, and fun context.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My drum studio includes 2 drum kits to help aid in visual learning, percussion instruments from around the world, a PA system to play along to music and great vibes!

*** Travel Equipment ***
For student's home lessons I require at least one drum or drum set.

*** Specialties ***
Based within a fun, relaxed context, Casey has developed a natural teaching method that focuses on learning and understanding the building blocks of drum set playing, familiarizing and connecting these building blocks, and applying them to individual expression. He has the ability to take nearly anyone without prior drum set or rhythmic experience, and, within days, turn them into beat playing drummers. His approach focuses on: HAVING FUN, building an understanding and relationship with each drum, the basic rudimentary foundation of drumming, how to approach the drums, hold the sticks, set up the drums, and tune the drums, basic mechanical techniques, development of each limb, learning how to read basic drum charts and play to them, learning and playing the most significant beats and patterns in the history of drum set, and gaining the ability to effectively teach oneself how to improve as a drummer.

When I say he is the best instructor ever, I mean that he is the BEST INSTRUCTOR EVER! I took lessons from a teacher closer to where I live, however, did not feel I was effectively learning. I decided to look in the Atlanta area for someone, thinking there would be more options. Casey came up so I decided to give him a try. The hour+ drive I take to get to him is 110% worth it. I have learned so much from him; he is incredibly talented and has the best teaching strategies...not to mention he is one of the nicest guys I have ever met. I look forward to continuing to work with him. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to seriously learn to play drums.

Ossie M.

Decatur, GA

About Ossie

I started taking piano lessons at the age of eight under the instruction of Robert Wilson before switching to Rosaline Saunders Music Studio. I play by ear, but also read music. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Louisiana at Monroe with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. My purpose is to create well rounded musicians, who can play all genres of music, and who will also know how to set the atmosphere with their music. I love teaching piano and I love teaching all ages. I began teaching piano in 2003 before becoming the founder of The Master's Hands Music Studio in 2004.
My greatest joy is seeing the knowledge and gift of music passed to others that was afforded me by the sacrifice of my late parents.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am patient but expect my students to practice so that our lessons are a continuation of the lessons taught before and not practice sessions in themselves. I use the Alfred's Basic Piano Lesson and Theory books. I believe in custom tailoring the lesson to each student. Finding out what you love and working to get you to the place of playing that music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Formal Living Room w/ f/w keyboard and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
Teach all genres, specialize in gospel and R&B

An Awesome Learning Experience

My 10-year old daughter's lessons have exceeded my expectations. Ossie M. is professional, very knowledgeable, patient, yet challenging! My daughter took piano lessons at her school for 5 years before TakeLessons and it is like she is learning a new instrument: the attention to detail, the learning of music theory, the ability to learn to read music and play-by-ear are all outstanding attributes and she's only been taking classes for a month! I can't wait to see how good she is doing this time next year. I wish I could give Ossie M. TEN STARS!!!
