About Jordan
Thank you for taking the time to view my profile- I look forward to helping you achieve your musical goals. I'm excited to announce that I'm now available to teach via Skype if you're outside of my teaching radius or are seeking a more convenient alternative.

I'm a professional guitarist with a background in jazz, heavy metal, blues, classical, and bossa nova. In 2006 I graduated from the Berklee College of Music and am lead guitarist for the Atlanta band Leaving Babylon.

Whether you are a beginning guitarist or a seasoned professional, I can expand and enhance your playing in any direction you choose. I look forward to getting to know you as a student and learning about what course of study will bring out not only your understanding of music but a musical style that is unique to you.

Having a long time love of all music I have
always enjoyed discussing music and educating others on its many aspects. As such I began teaching during summers home from Berklee and found that it was something I had a great deal of talent for. Now, with seven years of teaching experience behind me, I look forward to bringing my skills and insights to students of all ages and bring not only ability on the guitar but a greater love of music to a fresh crop of open minds!!

In addition to guitar, I am also qualified to teach voice, public speaking, dramatic acting, and all aspects of music theory, the latter of which I incorporate into all of my music lessons.

PLEASE NOTE: I am able to take students either in my home studio or at the student's residence. In both cases students who are under 18 years of age are required to have a parent or guardian present during all lessons. Additionally, please note I have two cats as well, in the event that allergies may be an issue.

*** Lesson Details ***
Although I follow a specific lesson plan, its important to customize that to each student's skill level and specific needs. Thus, I will spend the first lesson evaluating where the student is in terms of overall musical awareness, existing skill on the instrument, and long term interest.

By the end of the first month, my beginning students will be able to perform basic chromatic and major scales, name the notes on the instrument, and have command of a few basic chords. With these core concepts and regular, committed practice, they will be able to learn and perform songs in a wide variety of styles after 3 to 6 months have passed.

My more advanced students will have a lesson plan customized to their specific goals and desires. In 3 to 6 months with such a student I will have them well on the path to accomplishing their long term goals, whether those be playing, composition, harmonic awareness, understanding of theory, or all of the above.

*** Studio Equipment ***
dedicated music room; cables/amps; electric & acoustic guitars; keyboard

*** Travel Equipment ***
Electric or acoustic guitar as needed.

*** Specialties ***
Having graduated from the Berklee College of Music, I follow their approach in educating the student. In this regard I teach music theory along with the physical act of playing the guitar, which serves to not only enrich the experience for the student but demonstrate how what they are learning is applied to music on the whole.

I am fluent in many genres and specialize in rock, jazz, the blues, and various fusion genres. Because music functions off of the same principles regardless of genre, I can take whatever style the student might best appreciate and structure my lesson plan around it.

Great Instruction for all levels

I am in my mid-thirties and have never had any formal musical instruction until I started taking lessons with Jordan a few months ago. I was a little nervous about starting the lessons, but Jordan made me very comfortable right away. You definitely can tell he knows music inside and out. He is also very helpful about incorporating just enough music theory into each lesson, so I can expand my knowledge of theory, but not so much that I get overwhelmed. I would definitely recommend Jordan to anyone looking for a great vocal or guitar instructor.

Keith is fantastic! He expects the highest level of preparation and performance from me at all my lessons and thus pushes me to be a better performer every time. He tailors my lessons to exactly what I need - specific work for upcoming auditions as well as more general work to expand my repertoire. His lessons are also not not limited singing coaching - he also provides coaching in acting and movement. I feel like I have presented some of my best work to auditors as a result of working with Keith! And he does all this in the friendliest manner possible so that my lessons are always a great combination of fun, hard work, and inspiration.

Also, he is pretty easy-going with scheduling and just let him know in advance and he will reschedule the class for you. Definitely recommended.

Former University teacher of voice and still singing jazz...Experienced teacher in Hollywood CA., Kansas City, MO., downtown St. Petersburg, FL., and now Atlanta, GA.

About Sara Ann
I pace our lessons andI over explain a technic to make certain the client gets the concept. Patiently and with a sense of humor we apply it to a song that is a target song the client really can "sell" and just wants the vocal know-how to do.
With two masters degrees in voice and speech-language pathology, with specializing in eliminating chronic hoarseness and giving you the perfect foreign accent, I am a premier singing teacher who still sings at jazz jams sessions. I previously was a full time professor of voice and music education, a Fulbright instrumental/vocal teacher at high school level, an elementary music supervisor. In recent years, I wrote a book & videos as a licensed speech language pathologist for those with chronic hoarseness, laryngitis, & vocal nodules. Clients love how I mold technique to a song the first lesson.

I signed up for singing lesson on a whim. Sara was great; very patience and knowledgeable. Please take in consideration, I have no music or instrument background so we worked on breathing and body position which she made fun then at the end of each lesson we sang a song or two. After each lesson, I left with new knowledge and one or two thing to work on that week. For a spur of a moment decision, I obtain a new understanding of music, singing, and met a wonderful creative lady. Good Experience all around.

Dan is a kind, knowledgeable instructor. Being a beginner it is intimidating to try and learn how to sing, at least for me. Dan does a great job of explaining why and what I will be working on, is supportive throughout the lesson, and able to correct flaws in my delivery on the spot.
I am very happy with my lessons so far with Dan and I think you would be as well!

I ask my students to pick songs from genres ranging from pop to broadway. Please make sure you are picking songs you feel you can create your own story to. To truly feel the passion of a song and have your audience feel your exact emotions, I want you to be believable when you sing.

About Mia
As an orphan in war-torn Sierra Leone, I was delighted to be adopted by an American family when I was nearly five years old. Then I was further overjoyed when I walked into the living room of my new home and discovered a piano! By my fifth birthday I was taking piano lessons. Since that day more than 17 years ago, I have continuously studied classical piano. I began studying jazz piano when I was 13. I began playing the oboe in middle school, and in high school I was the English horn soloist in the Vermont All-State Orchestra and the first oboist in the Green Mountain Youth Orchestra. I sang as a soloist in the Vermont Youth Orchestra Chorus, in the Flynn Theatre’s Jazz Combo, and at the Bill Reed Voice Studio. I recently earned my Master’s Certificate in Singing/ Songwriting from the Berklee College of Music, where I am majoring in son
gwriting and keyboard through the online program so that I can live here in Georgia.

Are you tired of doing vocal drills and getting nowhere? I'm glad you have landed on my page. I have a unique ability to help a person reach their singing goals. I stretch your understanding of what your voice is capable of, and challenge you to reach your potential and exceed even your own expectations.
I help shape your voice into an instrument you can rely on and predict its performance. I teach sound vocal technique and vocal rehabilitation for any age, style, level, or voice type.

About Dileesa
Singing has always been my passion. Not just singing, but the instrument, the human voice, has always intrigued me. I’ve been singing since age 2, and on singing on stage since age 4. By age 6 I was traveling with my grandfather’s gospel band as a featured soloist. By age 12 I found myself analyzing voices. I would hear people, celebrities, singing and would think, “Gosh, he/ she would sound so much better if only they did ___ differently. I sang all throughout high school in small ensembles, mixed and women’s chorus, barbershop quartet and gospel church choirs. I studied voice in college because I figured I had a gift and wondered what would happen if I stretched it to perform at its best. My first year was admittedly a disaster. I was a gospel singer who pushed my chest voice up too high and had ruined my mix and head voice. I couldn’t
sing above an E5, I never had enough air to sing my phrases, and my voice was constantly hoarse and raspy. Also, I didn’t realize how hard it would be to sing classical voice. I admit, I had my doubts about the techniques I was being taught. I didn’t see how humming exercises, lip trills and other mundane vocal exercises would translate into me singing Mozart, Schubert, or even being Kirk Franklin’s background singer one day.
And then one day, at the end of semester 2, I noticed a change. There was an ease and comfort in singing. My vibrato was freer and brighter. I could sing an E6, which means I had added a full octave to my range. And I had so much more control over my breath and phrasing.
My second year as a voice student I had a new voice. So much so, that I was awarded two full music scholarships simultaneously (one for jazz vocalist, one for musical theater vocalist) and a paid leading role at a local opera company. I was 19 years old and still singing with a local gospel choir and doing studio work and live background singing. The vocal techniques I learned to be a versatile, well- rounded singer are the techniques I bring to all of my students.
I’ve been to Dubai, London, Portugal and several cities in the US, doing workshops and meeting my fantastic clients and online followers.
I’d love to help you find your voice and fall in love with the voice you have.

Singing lessons with Dr. Tift are unique because they always begin with vocal conditioning based in classical singing then lead into the style of singing that you want to learn. Whether you're interested in learning a new piece of music by ear or from sheet music, or if you're working on becoming a better sight singer, I can help! I have taught voice for over 18 years. As a professional perfomer with extensive experience in musical theatre, classical, gospel, r&/b/soul, and jazz singing, I look forward to helping you enhance your skills as a singer.

About Kristyl
Over the past 18 years, I have helped students improve their vocal skills by training them to become better technical singers and expanding their knowledge of singing styles. As a professor, I have taught at the university level for a total of 6 years in Theatre and Communication Arts, teaching such courses as Voice, Speech, Public Speaking, and Musical Theatre singing. A classically-trained singer with a 3-octave range and proficiency in classical/opera, jazz, r&b/soul, blues, and other styles, I am an excellent teacher with patience and an encouraging manner.
