Jim is a through and through professional. He has a very measured and logical approach to his lessons, and manages to keep things fun while drilling the fingering, patterns, and vocabulary into your head. I've been taking lessons with him for a couple of months now and I feel like I am learning a lot every week, and I'm getting measurably better. Just be sure to do your homework! Thanks, Jim!

· Drum · Online
I’m an adult student with a job and Jimmy has been very adjusting about rescheduling my lessons if the need arises. I bought a set of 5 lessons to get a feel for being taught drumming as a beginner. The lessons have been useful as Jimmy sticks to basics and is patient and knowledgeable.

When my 7-year-old son asked for guitar lesson's, my wife and I were at a loss. As we are not musically inclined at all. We found Jimmy from a friends recommendation and could not be happier. Our son, loves his lesson's with Jimmy, he is learning music theory , how to read music and how to make his guitar sing (for a 7-year-old, at least). Jimmy is very patient and attentive to the needs of such a small learner. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to play.

About David P.

Atlanta, GA
View Full Profile

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

About Justice
Hi, I am Justice
I'm a director and music producer with approximately 20 years in the music industry.
As the son of a preacher, I began music by toying with the musical instruments in my home, which transpired me to play for my father's church at the age of 14.

I have become a passionate and talented music teacher, with a very unique and effective style of teaching.
Today, I teach all ages with the mission to inspire and bring out the music in them.
My teaching philosophy is based on my belief that learning is fun!

About Drew W.

Brooklyn, NY

View Full Profile

I have extensive experience teaching and playing across many styles including jazz, classical, R&B, funk, rock, folk, improvised music, and more. I approach each student as an individual with their own goals, needs, experience level, and learning style to create a specialized curriculum that helps propel the student towards their best self and enjoy the process at the same time.

About Drew
Aside from an extensive amount of personal and teaching experience in all of these subjects, I genuinely love connecting with students through music to help them reach their personal goals. I believe that my approach towards learning music is deeply rewarding, engaging, and aids brain development. Below is my bio which details my approach and teaching experience.

Drew received his Bachelors of Music in Jazz and Improvisational Music from the University of Nevada Reno and his Masters of Music in Contemporary Improvisation from New England Conservatory. He teaches guitar, piano, songwriting, and composition with an emphasis on intuitive learning, ear training, and music theory. His background includes jazz, classical, rock, blues, reggae, R&B, hip-hop, electronic music, and improvised music. As an educator he has eight years of experien
ce in private studio and has given workshops at the middle school, high school, and college level including his recent outreach work with the Boston Philharmonic to underfunded schools. Drew approaches each student as an individual with their own goals, needs, experience level, and learning style to create a specialized curriculum that helps propel the student towards their best self and enjoy the process at the same time.

· Acoustic Guitar · In studio
Drew is an incredibly talented musician who brings a lot of creativity and variety to his teaching. I have learned a lot from Drew and highly recommend him.
Jon July 29, 2017
· Classical Guitar · In studio
Was strictly interested in playing classical, nylon string guitar, and was a little nervous because Drew is very proficient and accomplished in Jazz and Improvisational guitar, which is a little outside of my interests.

Drew does a fantastic job at teaching classical guitar, and at the same time introduced me to the more modern world of improvisation guitar, which I now enjoy a lot more than before.

I'd highly recommend Drew if someone is interested in a well rounded musical education that goes beyond just playing an instrument. I not only learned a lot of guitar, but feel I'm an all around better musician after taking lessons with Drew
Keanu July 28, 2017
· Acoustic Guitar · In studio
Drew was a very patient instructor with genuine interest in the material he presents. He builds his curriculum around the student's wants and goals. A flexible and impressive musician, I would (and will) recommend Drew to my friends at all levels of guitar/musical proficiency.

About Corey C.

Marietta, GA
View Full Profile

The most important thing for me when teaching lessons is helping my students feel connected to the music they are learning to create. Yes, I will teach you scales, chords, songs, riffs and all the rest, but my real goal is to teach you how to capture your instincts on the guitar and experience the thrill of that connection.

With 20+ years of professional experience, I am well versed in most genres; including Jazz, Blues, Rock, Latin and Folk.

My music has appeared on national and regional television and radio and I have performed in major venues around the country including The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Hilton Grand Ballroom in Chicago, Terminal West - Eddie’s Attic - Centennial Park in Atlanta and many more.

Depending on your skill level I will either create a custom roadmap to sharpen your playing or start you out according to my lesson plan for beginners.

I teach students ages 13 and up.

About Corey
My teaching method can be broken into two categories -

For beginners:

I will guide you through a time-tested and well-rounded method to get you up and running with the basics. I focus on fundamentals like basic scales and chords, optimal hand and finger placement, right hand picking technique etc. There is, however, plenty of room for having fun learning to play songs and riffs, because let’s be honest, that’s what we’re trying to achieve. So I always keep that in mind and use songs to teach the skills you need to learn.

By the end of your first month you will
Know what everything on your guitar is and does
Know how to change and tune your strings
Be able to play a major scale
Know how to play all of the most common major and minor chords
Be learning how to play a song we choose together

For intermediate to advanced stu

If you are interested in learning more about music theory, advanced scales, soloing/improvisation, songwriting and part writing, I am your teacher. Whether you’re working in a band and would like to develop more musical guitar parts, writing and recording or playing at local open jams, I have plenty to teach you.

We will
Have a custom tailored plan for strengthening the areas we choose to work on together
Learn how to read and transcribe music (or get better at it)
Sharpen your improvisation skills using methods and techniques I have honed over the years

For everyone:

You’ll quickly learn that I’m a pretty easy going and friendly guy. We should get along just fine. It is, however, very important to know one thing going in…

Except for family/work/health emergencies I don’t accept any student’s lack of practicing for their lesson. It may sound harsh. And it’s because it is. It’s maybe the only harsh thing about my lessons. I’m far more concerned about your development as a musician than I am about making money, and I want everyone to be clear on that from day one.

The financials are important to me, but the personal rewards are far more important.

That being said, a situation like that is very rare and typically lessons are extremely fun, challenging and rewarding!
