Includes chord knowledge, strumming patterns, flat picking, finger picking technique and fingerstyle playing. Reading music or tab.

About Jimmy
I have over 30 years experience as a professional guitar instructor and have been actively teaching lessons in Henry County, GA as well as Clayton County, GA. I had actually started teaching friends as a teenager since 1976 where I grew up in N.Y. and those friends still play guitar to this day, a couple have become professional musicians. I started teaching guitar professional in 1983. Over the years I've had the pleasure of teaching hundreds of students at every skill level.

I teach several styles of playing: Rock, Jazz, Blues, Country, Funk, Rhythm & Lead guitar playing, Classical guitar and Fingerstyle playing. I teach on electric & acoustic guitar.

I have one basic philosophy in my approach to teaching: get the student to fall in love with the guitar so it becomes a life-long passion. As an instructor, I endeavor to make guita
r lessons fun, practical and productive!!! Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, advanced or even at the professional level, I can help you advance your playing skills.

I've had a wonderful experience with Jim, and plan on continuing my weekly lessons with him. His methodology is logical and straightforward, his personality is open-minded, affable, and he's quite the prodigy when it comes to his skill level on guitar. He can fluidly change from a bluesy twang to a warm jazz sound, and switch to a nostalgic riff on the acoustic guitar at a moment's notice. He is everything I could ask for in a teacher, and in the short month that I've been taught by him, my learning curve has steepened with every visit. I'm learning so much from this guy and recommend anyone with an interest in guitar to pursue taking lessons from this guy before everyone else with the right idea books him first!
Sincerely,
An eager pupil

Great acoustics from beginner to advanced. Letting you know the in's and out's of the strumming patterns, lead and how to land a gig once you have a hold load of songs under your belt.

About Melody
First I want to thank you for looking at my profile.
You can read about me below.
If you have any questions please email me through Take Lessons.

About me:

Even though it says my travel is 10 miles max I do make exceptions.

I started music at age 5. My parents were both professional musicians.My father was a professional jazz piano player and my mother a classical guitarist. So it is in the blood. I play a few instruments but my favorite guitar and piano. I went to Nassau Community College for Drama/Music.
I toured in theater groups and also was in a few bands while living in NY. I could not make up my mind so I did both. I love both So. Florida here I come in 1991. Since I was new to the area I starting performing regular basis and became well known in the music community.I also went on a song writing spree. I was also able to do
dinner theater in between the music. I met some people, music teachers from going to the open mics. They encouraged me to go out and start teaching and do what I was supposed to do. How it happened ? I placed one small ad, got a call and from there it grew into over 80 students.I just was referred to everyone it was a chain reaction.
In between teaching I was also in a duo and made time for the touring, local gigs, etc....released 3 CD's.
I was very busy that I decided to open up my own music school to handle the over flow of students. I had my business for 9 years.
I produced a lot of talent from there.songwriters with published songs, singers with contracts, bands the guitarist in the now defunct band Hey Monday with Cassidy Pope. Students that were in American Idol- featuring Emily Booke 2 years in a row top twenty then top ten..
America's Got Talent featuring Amy Profaci, Cassidy Pope.
Played for the Boss in RPB with Odd Man Out, Teen Punk Band since disbanded. Had them out and playing gigs at age 14 the youngest oldest 16 at CBGB's. In NYC. They were on the Regis and Kelly show. Students that started with me at age 5 and stayed for years. A lot are off to college or done with school grown up sort of. When they bump into me and say hey Ms. Mel I'll never forget you teaching me music lessons or do you remember that or I loved that band class you did. You changed my whole life.
I really appreciate it and I did make a difference in their lives.
I also write for TV and Film and have over 30 professionally published songs. Songs playing on commercials, TV and overseas in England. They seem to love it over there a lot of fan mail.

Ok this is as follows.
*** Lesson Details ***
Cancellations : 24 hour notice. Make up lessons are at my discretion.
61 key keyboard are ok for piano lessons.
You must have a piano for vocal lessons if I come to your home. You must have a guitar 🎸 for guitar lessons. I do not supply any instruments or lesson books. You are required to contact me once booked and find out what you will need.

How long will it take to learn depends on YOU!!!!

Practice is the answer not a question. You must be prepared to work to do the work. If you do not understand it we will do it until you get it.
My Adult students this goes for you too.
It is important that you practice. So I recommend cutting down on video games and TV.
I suggest no TV or Video games especially before the lessons are about to start. Very distracting for the kids.
I expect you to be practiced and ready to go when I get there. If you want to be a rock star that's what it takes, discipline.
Its great when a parent can sit in while I'm teaching your child. Remember I am teaching you as well.
You will be helping your child practice during the week until the next lesson.
For the guitar there will be complaints of hurting finger tips.
I cannot do anything about that it comes with guitar playing.
For the like piano, the fingers will not hurt.

After 3 to 6 months for the older student I expect all 6 strings to be complete and chords and strumming on guitar and learning songs of your choice.
Piano - Sight Reading and being able to play with 2 hands in the key of "C" with ease.
This will only happen with practice, And learning songs of your choice if you choose to.

Small ones as much time as they need depends upon how long it takes for them to learn it and how much time mom can help practice.

*** Studio Equipment **
Right up Piano,
Small 15 Watt Amp

**Supplies:
I do not supply instruments for any student. Parents you are
expected to purchase a 61 key keyboard of your choice and finances.Same goes for guitar. We will figure out the size you or your child needs. You must purchase your own books. I use Bastiens Primer A red book, Bastiens A Pink Book, along with these books they also have a theory book , performance book and technic book. Bk 1,2,3 also have a series of book 📚 to work with.

Guitar 🎸 I like to use Fast Track Bk 1 w/o CD. Then again they are becoming obsolete

*** Specialties ***

Beginner Piano/Intermediate
Beginner classical/intermediate guitar
Folk style guitar
Blues beginner/intermediate
Theory beginner/intermediate/advanced note reading
Piano beginner /intermediate young beginner young adult to the older adult this goes for piano.

I have performed on and taught acoustic guitar for nearly 20 years.

I know hundreds of songs so I can always find songs which make beginners into players quickly.

I love soloing. I have several unique techniques I share with more advanced students to enable them to become stronger guitar players and overall musicians.

About David
I grew up in Birmingham, AL, Boston, MA, and Cleveland, OH, and was classically trained on violin in all three cities by members of their respective orchestras. I began studying theory in 7th grade at The Alabama School of Fine Arts. I continued theory lessons while in Boston at the New England Conservatory of Music. I attended Summer music programs at Apple Hill (New Hampshire) and Sewanee (Tennessee) and have extensive experience in orchestra, quartet, and chamber group environments.

Upon graduating Emory university in 1992 I played professionally in Destin, FL as a bassist, guitarist, violinist, and vocalist. I performed as bassist and backing vocalist with "Salty Dog" for nearly a decade. I am the co-founder of the Destin, FL band "Beach Mice." We perform for several weddings, corporate events, and benefits every year. Beach
Mice is also popular on the festival circuit on the Emerald Coast.

I relocated to Atlanta in November of 2013, and currently perform weddings, and at various restaurants and events in the Atlanta area.

I have taught individuals and group lessons on violin, bass, and guitar since 1997 and for several consecutive years at Playground Music in Fort Walton Beach.

I have several videos available on YouTube, and a website which is easily located through a simple Google search.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you fulfill your musical goals and ambitions. Happy Playing - Cheers! dp

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!!

I am an experienced guitarist and guitar teacher of 7 years! I am happy to take your skills to the next level! We will focus on strengthening scales, ear training, finger mobility, and more! You will be jamming out with your favorite rock, pop, jazz, r&b songs in no time!

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!
