About Laurelanne
I graduated from Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, GA with a BA in Music Education, voice principal. During my years in public schools I taught a variety of age ranges and subjects including kindergarten general music, beginning band, high school chorus, and remedial middle school English and language arts. I have professional Yoga training and enjoy incorporating aspects of that when tutoring adult, middle school, high school, and elementary students. I also uses Yoga, brain respiration and other healing techniques in my lessons as needed.

I was a member of The William Baker Festival Singers and Summer Singers since 2003 before becoming Media Relation Coordinator in 2006 and Assistant to the Music Director in 2008 and left the group in July of 2009 to pursue other musical ventures.

Every student has a potential
for greatness no matter what their strengths and weaknesses are. No matter your age or ability level I will help you set your goals and reach them. All students should want to learn. I expect my students to be prepared and have an open mind. Learning to sing is a process. I focus on building technique and a strong musical foundation and customize my lessons for every student and individual needs. I use breathing techniques and exercises that are challenging and work toward quick and accurate results. I implement a variety of exercises to improve pitch, intonation, placement, strength, and endurance. My main goal in teaching is to encourage each student to get to know their vocal strengths and weaknesses while using all their skills to their advantage producing their best sound consistently.

It is a slow building process but a student should always be happy with what they do every day but never be satisfied and know that what they do today will be ever better tomorrow. We all grow and learn together and improve every time we try. I expect my students to do the best they can, practice regularly, be on time and have patience. I am excited about music and know it is also important to have fun and enjoy the process. So lets make some goals and get started!

Laurelanne made me feel so comfortable on my first singing lesson. No one ever feels comfortable singing for the first time in front of someone else and she did it! I was taught breathing techniques and I really hope to eventually sing at a festival in a year when I become really good. She's definitely the person to go to if you want to learn to sing!!

About Nicholas
I have over 6 years of experience instructing people of all ages in guitar. I have immense experience playing in many projects as a guitarist. I can teach a variety of styles and specialize in genres like Blues, Rock, Reggae, Ska, and more! I individualize my lessons to let you guys learn what you want to learn! I implement music theory and learning techniques along with learning songs and song writing to help you create your own music!

*** Lesson Details ***
With every student I teach the same basics. I start with basic chords, notes, and rhythms so the student has a strong basic technique. I then move on to individualize the lessons to specific students, whether they want to learn more songs, techniques, or whether they want to focus on a specific genre. After 6 months of lessons you can expect to have a strong base in the technique
of the instrument, songwriting, and have learned a good amount of songs in the genres of your choice! I am very laid back and patient and am happy to move at a pace that is good for every individual student!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide an instrument and any teaching materials, such as books.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach a wide variety of styles and genres. However, I specialize in blues, rock, metal, ska, reggae, and other contemporary styles. However, my general approach is to see what the student wants to get out of playing guitar and want to teach them what they want to learn.

Nick Rocks!!

Nick has done a great job with my 12 year old son. He has been teaching him for about a year or so. He comes over once a week. He teaches all the notes and chords. They play tunes together. Once in a while I demand a short concert at the end of a lesson. Nick is very good about putting together a familiar guitar tune and showing off the progress that my son has made in a 5 minute concert for M&D. We love to watch and hear the two of them play. You will be happy with Nick. Highly recommended!!!! Gary K.

Jimmie arrived on-time and ready to start. He dove right into getting to know my son and started teaching him on bells and learning rhythm since that`s what my son will be expected to know for his first year of band in the fall.
He was very good at connecting with my son and easily had him enjoying the lesson.
You can tell Jimmie has a passion for teaching children and his face lit up talking about it. He heaped praise on my sons accomplishments and my son said he truly enjoyed the lesson and can`t wait for next week.
I`d highly recommend him to teach your child. I don`t think you`d find someone else with the same passion for children. So glad I made the decision to hire Jimmie and look forward to many years of him being involved in developing my son into a awesome musician.
Thank you Jimmie!

Caitlyn is by far the most knowledgeable instructor that I have come across. She immediately corrected my sons posture, the way he held his instrument, and the way he blew into the flute. After that I saw a drastic change. Not only that, she is patient and makes the lessons fun. I also love the fact that she can tell when he isn't practicing and she gives immediate feedback. I recommend Caitlyn 1000%. My other children will definitely take lessons from her as well.

My friends call me JP...so, let's be friends! I have played and taught music for many years. I'm a former road musician, and play guitar, bass, and keyboards fluently. I understand music in depth, and so, when I teach, you're not just getting the techniques, you'll be understanding why things work as music, and how you can apply them to your music in general, so that you end up with a great musical "toolbox" to use. I'm also a composer, and it's my job as a composer to understand different styles and approaches. Chances are, I can point you in the right direction for any type of music you want to play. Let's get started!
