Piano Lessons in Atlanta, GA

Atlanta has long been a focal point for major players in the music business. In rock, The Black Crowes, Collective Soul and John Mayer all developed their talent here, as well as R&B artists Usher, Ludacris, Babyface, Toni Braxton and TLC. In nearby Athens, REM and the B-52s emerged in the late 70s.

If you’re interested in learning music, the piano is a great option for beginners. Most people find their initial music enthusiasm after playing the ivory keys and learning about intervals, scales and melody. There are few instruments that give a finer sense of the architecture of musical structure and composition than the piano. It is the instrument of choice for several different music styles, including classical, jazz and even rock.

In order to really improve your skills, however, private piano lessons are necessary. TakeLessons can help you or your child find the perfect instructor and enhance your musical appreciation. All of our teachers complete an extensive interview process and background check to ensure you have the best opportunity to learn in a safe environment.

To find a teacher near you, our handy search tool helps you filter out instructors based on subjects taught and feedback received, or you can give us a call at 800-252-1508! So what are you waiting for? Get started and book your lessons today!

I teach anything from learning how to read music to lead sheets etc.

About Ali
Ali has had music in her life since she was in the crib. She has performed professionally in the musical theatre world and she has studied in several universities for Musical Theater, Jazz, Pop, Blues, and R&B. Since the age of sixteen, she has been selected to sing as a guest soloist for venues such as Spivey Hall, Georgia World Congress Center, and Georgia Tech Hotel Conference Center. Ali has also sung for many movies and recordings, and recently recorded a demo for David Foster, Barbra Streisand, and Andrea Bocelli and recently toured as a pianist for "The Women of Ireland." She is a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music and earned her BM in Music Business and Vocal Performance cum laude studying under Magi Scott, Jeff Ramsey, Jerome Kyles, and Carolyn Escoffrey, Donna McElroy, Livingston Taylor, Joan Lader, and Charlie Sorrent
o.

Ali is also known for playing piano. She received her minor in Piano Performance within a year at Shorter College under Helen Ramsaur. She has been playing since she was five years old and has accompanied many people and musical productions.

Some of Ali's major influences include:

Linda Eder, Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Lena Horne, Judy Garland, Whitney Houston, Billie Holliday, and Lara Fabian, Barbra Streisand

*** Lesson Details ***
Ali loves to share her passion of music to the world and especially through her students. She loves to share new ideas and nuances along with the basics and fundamentals of technique. Although practice can be boring for the student, asking a student to pick at least one song to work on can help the student and the teacher have fun and learn at the same time. After a few months, not only will her students have fun, but they will learn how to be a better person and musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***

*** Travel Equipment ***
Just the music I assign and their appropriate instrument

Dear Allie, We are so happy to have found you this summer. It is amazing to see Nicholas stay so focused and interested for an hour at the piano. His love of music seems to have grown since we started lessons with you. We really appreciate your capacity to adapt to his needs and to keep him excited. Thanks!

About Letha H.

Atlanta, GA
View Full Profile

Piano lessons consist of three parts: theory, technique and song repertoire. I help my students make the connection between what they can already hear, and what that looks like on the page.

About Letha
With a performance degree from the University of Georgia, teaching certification from Georgia State and over 25 years of professional teaching experience, I am able to offer my students a diverse range of instructional resources.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons include a warmup, music theory work, vocal or instrumental technique and then a vast selection of song repertoire to support new ideas in both technique and theory. Students are directed to watch or listen to examples of master performances in their field of studies. Clear weekly goals are made between lessons and I am always encouraging! Whatever life throws at you during the week doesn't have to stop your studies cold- we will come up with a plan that fits your lifestyle.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a small Protools setup with microphones and a Kurzwell keyboard. I
like to be able to go online for some resources.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I regularly use the internet in lessons as well as standard published educational texts.

*** Specialties ***
I have been told that I am especially good at helping people make the jump from playing by rote to reading from the page. In vocal instruction, I am familiar with three schools of technique: the psycho-imagery school, the "anatomical" school, and the Italian "open throat" approach. My background in acting also contributes basic vocal projection techniques to vocal training. I am comfortable with all genres of music, including pop, rock, soul, R&B, gospel, jazz and opera. In instrumental studies, I am a woodwind doubler, reading fluently and transposing on-the-spot . As a jazz and gospel artist I improvise primarily on the flute and saxophone. My piano skills are equivalent to a second-year college piano major. I can improvise accompaniments as well as read piano scores. In addition to being a certified teacher in Georgia, I attained national certification through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in 2004.

About Maria
MISSION STATEMENT:

The mission of my studio is to create well-rounded, educated musicians who will always have a lifelong passion for the art no matter their long-term goals. I strive for my students to be:

(1) Lifelong learners who develop successful learning habits.
(2) Creative and critical thinkers who will become effective communicators.
(3) Responsible and respectful members of society who respect other cultures.
(4) Able to set short-term and long-term goals and be able to see them through to their success.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:

It is of the utmost importance that my students are well-educated in their chosen instrument; they must know and understand music and music-making. Students who can play are a dime a dozen, but students who understand the music they are playing are often hard to find. I teach students to kno
w music thoroughly, not just to “play.” I desire my students to comprehend elements of the score, to use their bodies effectively to make good sound, and to interpret music creatively and according to historical performance practices across all genres of music. Thus, I give students a purposeful education in technique, quality literature, performance and artistry, music theory, and music history.

Although students differ in ability and development, I maintain high expectations for our students. I expect attention and respect in lessons, faithful and diligent practice, careful adherence to instructions, and an “I’ll-do-my-best” attitude. If students regularly meet these expectations, then they will excel to the level that they are able. It is my joy to help students master their music, to do the best they can, and to strive for and achieve excellence.

Lastly, I want students to enjoy and appreciate their instrument, music, and music-making; and I know as as a teacher, I am very influential in making this happen. Students develop enjoyment of music by understanding music, experiencing success in music, being exposed to good and varied genres of music, and receiving instruction from a teacher who is enthusiastic and encouraging. It is my goal to provide all of these opportunities for students, and as a result their lives will be enriched as they enjoy their instrument.

About Justice
Hi, I am Justice

Justice was the perfect piano instructor for me. I wanted to learn one specific song to play and sing as a proposal to my girlfriend. Justice helped me learn it in only 5 lessons, even though I had never played piano previously! He was skillful, encouraging, and fun! Justice made the most of each lesson to ensure that we met my goal. The engagement turned out beautifully; 'she said yes'! And my fiancé was quite surprised that I could play piano. Thanks Justice!!

About Victory
I love music and dance and have been playing piano and drums for over 10 years in my church. I have performed african dance routines at both formal and informal events such as cultural conventions, student talent shows, weddings and other parties. I love to teach and I am very patient when working with others. I am a former soccer player and can teach the basics to those who are interested. Music, dance and soccer are a few of my passions and I will definitely bring high energy and enthusiasm to every encounter I have with my future students. I do not currently own a piano or drum set so all lessons will be taught using the students' instruments.

Thank you in advance for your time!

Do you want to be able to play your favorite song from the radio? Or your favorite classical piece? Well, you have dropped by the right profile! I am an experienced studio and in-home teacher with a passion for piano. I will help you to build a solid foundation of understanding music theory and how it relates to YOUR music. Shall we begin?!

About Cierra
I am a pianist, guitarist, ukulelist, and vocalist with a BA in music composition from Clark Atlanta University. I have participated in several jazz bands, including The Raelettes. I have also had the time of my life touring the country with the Clark Atlanta Philharmonic Society. I have now had the pleasure of teaching fresh out of college and have been doing so for three years now! It has become one of my greatest passions!

My students will focus heavily on building a solid foundation, as that is the beginning to anything that is great and that will last, right?! My piano students are usually playing songs within the first 2-3 weeks of lessons! We focus on strengthening sight reading and technique, so we can bring it to EVERY piece of music!

As a guitar teacher, one of my main focuses with my students is muscle memory and SCALES! If
you want to be able to solo along with your favorite lead guitarist, it would help to know what key they are playing, right? I am here to help you identify different positions and scales along the fretboard to get you playing that a lot sooner!

My ukulele students are quite unique, as so the ukulele! If you have taken up guitar at anytime, ukulele will be such a breeze for you! But even if you have not, it is one of the 'easier' stringed instruments to learn. I focus heavily on practicing individual note reading, scales, and of course, different strumming techniques for this instrument. This instrument is all about the strum!

I was first a vocal major in college before switching to music composition. My vocal students will see improvement in their breathing within the first two weeks of lessons. Once we understand the breathe, we will delve deeper into strengthening that breath in the core so that we produce a clear, healthy and melodious tone!

Music is first about passion. Then, it is about the doing, but also keeping the passion. And I think you're ready! Send me a message, and let's get started!

I've been teaching piano and keyboard for over 20 years and many of my students have gone on to careers in the music and arts field. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to identify notes and play simple melodies and as time goes on you'll be able to use both hands and play songs that you will definitely recognize. I specialize in classical and contemporary, and typically use the John Thompson method books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Christopher
Five words that best describe myself. 1. Optimistic 2. Outgoing 3. Forgiving 4. Funny 5. Talented. I am an outgoing musician who for more than 20 years have devoted my life to the training, mentoring and coaching of people of all ages in the world of piano, voice and musical theatre.

As a musician and singer, Chris has performed for Presidents and heads of state, live televised events, athletic venues, Disney Parks, as well as many others. Chris was born and raised in the small rural town of Dinwiddie, Virginia. It was there that he discovered his talent and love of performing for audiences, getting lead roles in musicals and quickly becoming a force to be reckoned in the Central Virginia region. By the time Chris went to college, he had earned the reputation of being a successful pianist, vocal director arranger and performance coach
. His comedic quick wit and ability to relate to all ages made him the go to guy for all things music.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach students to read music and pursue musical excellence, to learn how to play classical and contemporary music using a variety of sheet music, chord charts and more!
