Private Piano Teacher

My approach to teaching is simple. The primary goal is to have fun and enjoy the experience of making and creating music. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in music or just wanting to add a bit of a creative outlet to your life, I can help.

My specialties include jazz, r&b, and pop piano styles. I do teach a little classical but primarily to beginners only. My curriculum is simple. I try to teach you what it is YOU want to know and that which fit your needs. There are some fundamentals that we all must learn, but typically I can have you playing a song your first lesson. As you progress, you will be able to learn to play songs on your own and interpret simple chord charts with melody.

Buzz is amazing! I love how he teaches what the kids want to learn, as opposed to what the teacher wants to teach. My son quickly took to Buzz and my son does not quickly take to many people. My son loves his lessons and I love hearing him play. I can not say enough about how happy I am we found Buzz and how my child has flourished as a pianist.
Emily W.
We have loved Buzz as our piano teacher. We started lessons with him when we didn’t own our own piano. He had an extra keyboard and lent it to us. He is talented, knowledgeable, patient and kind. He has been an excellent instructor for my son. We look forward to more lessons with him.

Buzz Was Great!! Very Patient due to the fact I'm a beginner.Also very knowledgeable!!!

Peter has not only honed my daughter's previous skills, but introduced techniques and music theory that was completely new to her. Peter has sought out music that will challenge and interest my daughter specifically. We've been very pleased.
Brian
Peter is an extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher; it has been a privilege studying the piano and cello with him for the past 2 months. In that brief time, I have completed 16 of the 17 pieces in the first Suzuki book for cello! I have also enjoyed the piano exercises and repertoire he has assigned, which are technical but melodious. He has a great understanding of theory and technique; he is very personable and encouraging; and he was flexible and accommodating about the times and modes (in person and online) for my lessons. I recommend him wholeheartedly to other adult beginners like me and am grateful to be under his tutelage.

Peter is exceptional. His instruction is simple, straightforward and progressive

The Inspirational Sounds of Decatur: From Piano to Voice

By Alexandrea L.-Decatur Piano Teacher

Over the years, Atlanta has grown in popularity in the music industry bringing more students, musicians, and producers to our area. As a piano teacher from Decatur, GA, I have the advantage understanding that Atlanta is not just an urban setting. Rather, Atlanta is a small city, nonetheless, that contains suburban towns that surround or are within the Metropolitan area. One of those towns is Decatur. Decatur is a suburban, historical town located within the Atlanta Metropolitan Area.

I love living and teaching piano lessons in Decatur. As a full-time student of Agnes Scott College, a private all girls college in Decatur, I have the advantage of living amongst authentic architecture, historical monuments, and most importantly, the mus

Decatur is a very artsy town. When you look down any street in Decatur you will see music schools or music venues. Musicians from all over the country travel to Georgia to perform in one of Georgia’s most successful venues, which is Eddie’s Attic, located in the heart of Decatur. It was here where artists such as John Mayer and Janelle Monae got their start. It makes me proud to know that I will be graduating from the same place as Alma Mater of Sugarland lead singer, Jennifer Nettles. I absorb all of theses characteristics of Decatur and use it in my artistic endeavors. I am always inspired to think and create outside of the box. I only hope that my students feel the warmth of Decatur and are inspired just as much as I am. What better place to teach music than in a creative town? It is here that my students can learn and discover passions to help them become better singers, pianists, and individuals.
