About Linda
*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an elec
tronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I also play and teach old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
Ukulele: I play and teach all styles of ukulele.
English and Reading: I am highly qualified to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

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

David Pretlow can zoom in on increasing technique and write an arrangement of a song you want to play within your playing ability. This is a TEACHER worthy of the name "professor in strings".

· Singing · Online
When I was a little girl I always to sing. Unfortunately, I was not blessed with the natural ability to sing. One night I was out with some friends checking out live music, and I met Sam Dicesare. She was kind enough to talk to me after her show, and I expressed my love for singing. I asked if she gave lessons and SHE DOES!!! Over the last 8 months I have been taking weekly vocal lessons from Sam. And I see a huge improvement in my singing voice!(I'm sure my dogs and neighbors thank her as well!!) She never got frustrated with me in the beginning while I struggled to stay on key. It's obvious she wants her students to succeed. She has been a huge help and is always there too answer my questions!!!

I have been taking lessons from Sam for about 4 years! I started out not knowing anything about guitar and now I am playing shows often and pursuing my dream!!! Sam is such a fun instructor and really breaks things down in the lessons making it very easy to learn! So whatever skill level you are, Sam Dicesare will be able to take your guitar playing to a whole other level. That girl is out of this world!!!!

I started taking weekly lessons with Ryan at the beginning of 2015 and it has been nothing but a pleasure to learn from him. His knowledge of the violin is vast, but more importantly, his passion for teaching is even deeper. It has not phased him that I am someone learning my first musical instrument later in life than when most musicians begin. His ability to think of exercises and immediately recognize technical mistakes simply by ear is amazing and helpful. I give Ryan my highest recommendation and cannot wait to continue to learn from him.
