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.

Casey is a very informative and positive teacher. A good guy all around. He pushes you outside your comfort zone and makes you somehow feel comfortable there. Very professional and cares about the success of his students. I highly recommend him regardless of your age or ability. One lesson and you'll be hooked on the drums!

We moved to Atlanta this summer, looking out for a new drum teacher for our 10 year old son David. And there he is: absolutely smart, stunningly relaxed, ever so patient and polite and - most of all - so funny and inspiring while teaching my child! Just within these three months passed David has made such remarkable progress, playing many new rhythms and patterns, doing drum solos for minutes and improving his whole attitude. If you want a positive chemistry for your child's musical development I can fully recommend Casey as an instructor.

Gene O.

Decatur, GA

About Gene

Hi there. My Name is Gene. I've been playing music for a good chunk of my life and I'm really excited to share what I've learned with you. I attended the Musician's Institute in Los Angeles, where I studied guitar and vocal performance. I've written, produced and recorded several of albums of original material. My music has been played on radio stations across the country. I've also been fortunate enough to have some of my songs placed on television here in America, in England and in Asia. In addition to teaching guitar and song-writing lessons, I currently play in an original rock band. I was
also a finalist in the Unisong International Song Contest two years in a row and one of my songs won the American Songwriter Magazine lyric contest a few months ago.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to make learning as fun and easy as possible. We'll start with the basics so you can stat playing as soon as possible. From there I encourage students to bring in songs that they would like to learn to play. Rock, Pop, Blues, R & B, whatever you like. I find it making the learning experience more fun when students get to work on songs they like. My goal is to equip you with all the basics of guitar performance or songwriting if that's your interest. Book a lesson with me and let's get started, before you know it you'll be playing the songs and styles you love.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room set up. Hardwood floors. Couch coffee table. Guitars. Small amp. Computer. Parking lot behind building. One dog.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide paper for notes, and printed curriculum that the student can take with them. I expect the student to provide their own instrument.

Great Instructor

Gene is a great instructor. He is very kind and attentive. I'm a beginner and I do mean beginner. But Gene takes time and let's me know that I can accomplish playing regardless of my age. I'm an old hippy! So learning songs like "Imagine" and "Knocking on Heavens Door" is right up my alley! I look forward to my classes! Here comes the 54 year old hippy with guitar on her hip!!! Thanks Gene!!

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

I wiould like to let anyone know if they are interested in learning to play the piano, especially an older adult that Ms. Ossie is the instructor for you. She is very patient and extremely knowledgeable in piano as well as teaching. I have learned more from Ms. Ossie in a short period of time, than I did from taking lessons for a year, with another.

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!!!
