An experienced and registered Suzuki teacher, my students learn to play violin starting from a solid foundation with emphasis on posture and producing a beautiful tone. In addition to playing the instrument, students can expect to learn reading music, basic theory, music history, and ear training. Learning violin will teach patience, concentration, the value of hard work, coordination, as well as enhancing memory, aural skills, and fine motor control. It was Dr. Suzuki's belief and mine that learning an instrument not only fosters these skills but also helps to foster the hearts and minds of those learning the craft.

About Sylvia

Sylvia Wehrs grew up in Auburn, Alabama studying the violin and piano. She is a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music where she graduated with both a Bachelor’s in Violin Performance and a Master’s degree in Violin Performance and Suzuki Pedagogy. Ms. Wehrs is a fully registered violin teach

Sylvia is very good at taking the time to explain the reasons behind the why of doing certain things. Being an adult with no musical background what so ever she has really taken the time to teach me some basic fundamentals that are helping me build the solid foundation that I so very much want and need. Beyond the time we spend with one-on-one instructions she challenges me with exercises to practice on between our meetings. I explained to Sylvia what I was looking for and she has centered the training and instructions around that to ensure that my goals are being met. She is a pleasure to work with and learn from.

Lessons will be based on what YOU want to learn! Together, we will articulate these goals and create a curriculum to achieve them. Lessons and practicing should be fun, and my experience of teaching many many different students taught me that structured and goal oriented practice is necessary in order to play the music you want to learn.
Your part is to bring up this effort and practice regularly.
My part is to help you learn HOW to practice and master the instrument with proper technique.

Ines has been a great teacher throughout college. Her emphasis on technique has greatly influenced how I approach guitar playing. Also, she taught me how important one's guitar tone is when playing a song the way the composer intended it to be played. It is very clear that I have improved as a guitar player while being her student and my guitar repertoire has expanded beyond just classical music.
Leah
Ines is an inspiring teacher for our nine-year old daughter. She is firm but flexible, patient, and a wonderful role model. Her breadth of performing and teaching experience allows her to choose repertory that is varied, fun, and challenging. Our daughter is always excited to have lessons with her.

I have been teaching a wide variety of styles and genres such as, classical, jazz, funk, rock, pop, hip-hop, etc. for 10 years. My teaching style is unique because as a full time professional musician I also bring a "street smarts" approach to the "book smarts" type of lessons--you get the best of both worlds. All of my lessons are rooted in classical piano technique, so you can learn how to properly and efficiently play the piano from a technical approach. One of the first things we will do is set daily, weekly, and monthly goals for you! Students will learn how to read music and they will also learn how to play by ear. Let's get started!

AMAZING TEACHER!!! Inspirational musician and educator

I took 2 years of lessons with Keegan. In that time he guided and prepared me for a career as a self providing musician. Not only did he teach me anything I wanted to know and everything I needed to know about the piano, he connected me with local musicians and gave me opportunities to audition and sub on gigs.

I successfully auditioned for the Berklee College of Music, which he helped me prepare for. I can now say that everything I learned with Keegan was crucial for my survival and progress in this College.

Keegan doesn't only teach you how to play, but how to hear and how to practice and approach music with joy and humility.
Glenn
Keegan has an absolutely impeccable undertanding of both piano and harmony itself. There was no concept he couldn't clearly and concisely breakdown for me in ways easy to understand, but I also gained a lot from the little observations he would make along the way. Technique suggestions would come with either anecdotes or real life experiences to support and provide context to his finely-honed teaching methods. Could not recommend more highly for someone who really wants get INTO piano (especially jazz/classical)
Megan
I’ve just started taking lessons with Keegan this year and have already learned a great deal. Each lesson is significant. Keegan is a professional whose honest with your progress and truly works to help you move forward. I already see great improvements in my understanding of theory, playability, songwriting, music reading, and improvisation skills. I recommend his services whole heartedly.

Having trouble staying consistent with your practices? Do you know your potential but haven't been able to reach it? I can guide you to achievement, and this is how.

I believe a successful and prosperous person has 3 hobbies.
One to keep them healthy.
One to make them money.
And one to keep them creative.

My approach to these 3 activities is the same. HAVE FUN.
If you enjoy something, the consistent practicing will become secondhand. I will teach you your favorite songs, improvisational techniques, and music theory all in a way that will make you forget to check the time. What are we waiting for? Let's jam!

About Andrew

I started taking lessons when I was 9, focusing solely on blues and classic rock. As I grew up, I branched out into heavy metal, jazz, and classical. At the end of our lesson, my teacher would always write something with me and let me solo over it. I think this was super important for keeping it fu

I focus on creating a safe and free sound. Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.

The vocal folds are the core of the sound, and must be given the utmost care and consideration. Proper hydration is essential. They are also muscles, that need strengthening exercises and time for them to change. This will improve your vocal endurance and range. As a highly trained voice teacher, I can hear if the vocal folds are behaving in a healthy and efficient manner. It is essential that your teacher understand how to care for these delicate components of the human voice.

Vocal resonance is how opera singers are heard without amplification. It can be enhanced through awareness and coordination of the various portions of the vocal tract. There are two main components that help magnify the sound. The pharynx, also known as the throat, and the soft palate. Having an open throat and lift ...

"Michael is the best! Right from the start he picked up on the weak areas of my voice and we've been working on it since. He goes through the exercises such that I'm singing the way I wanted without even thinking about it. And he doesn't miss a thing. If I miss a note he's right there having me do it over again until I get it right.

He also explained in detail what the problem areas were and how to fix them. Describing with words how to use the human voice is no easy task, but he knows exactly how to get the point across.

I was originally pessimistic about online lessons, but I thought I'd try it since I couldn't find anyone with credentials and experience like Michael's in Atlanta for less than a gajillion an hour. I was pleasantly surprised. I can sing in the comfort of my own home, and it's just like he's right there with me.

Thanks Michael!"
