Mr. Kenny is a wonderful instructor of voice and piano. His knowledge and passion for his craft shines through in his instructional technique. He is well-versed in all areas of voice, piano and the complete musical arena from the beginning of the history here and abroad up to this present day. He's a humble person who loves what he teaches and he enjoys learning more, also. He doesn't just teach the art, he teaches the art with passion. He is patient and kind and can break down technique and application so the very novice will feel enlightened, encouraged, and empowered. His talent, resourcefulness, and experience can also challenge the most advanced students to move beyond their current level up to the next. He is joyous over each advancement his students obtain and that joy is infectious. I am able to move on from his instruction with more confidence, more talent and more joy towards my art.

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. And have branched out to teach online as well. 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 pass
ion. As an instructor, I endeavor to make guitar 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.

Caleb comes highly recommended from the Hannibal Family. My daughters (Sydney and Reagan) took over 2 years of piano lesson under the guidance and supervision of Caleb, through the USC School of Music, and found him to be an excellent choice for them. Not only is Caleb very knowledgeable and devoted to teaching in the area of music, he's also a great motivator and excellent with children because of his patience and passion for the arts.

Caleb was a great instructor. My son Tarun started taking Piano lessons when he was 7. Caleb was very patient with my son who can be very difficult to teach. Tarun has had another teacher since then but he still talks about Caleb. I would not hesitate a second if I had to pick Caleb as our Piano instructor if had a chance.

About Darren
Starting a professional career at age 15 and never looking back has taken me many places during my 45 years in the entertainment field. I have experienced many facets of the industry and continue to apply the highest degree of skill, professionalism and talent to my full time music career. With an unblemished history of thousands of performances, I have established a track record of outstanding proportion.

Starting at only eight years old, I studied classical and contemporary organ literature with acclaimed accordionist Daniel Desiderio. In high school, I studied voice and conducting with Dr. Harry Mechell and went on to major in Music Education with concentration in piano and voice at Temple University. After Temple, I began my studies in jazz, theory and composition with virtuoso guitarist William J. Walton and worked with him for e
ight years.

My professional affiliations have included membership in the National Association of Music Educators, board member with Atlanta based TORCH (Together Orchestras Revitalize Community Harmony), board member and music director with Florida based For-Kids-Only and music director with Atlanta based Yes You Can! Foundation. All three organizations work through music to benefit a wide range of needs for children and communities.

I have worked extensively as a pianist, multi- keyboardist, vocalist, soloist, group performer, accompanist, teacher, music director, conductor and arranger as well as being an international recording artist.

THE ACCOMPANIST ~~~
To be an accompanist is an art form that requires the ability to cross effortlessly between multiple styles. It also requires that the lead vocal or instrument is supported to the fullest degree that allows total freedom of expression while knowing each moment of a performance can be undertaken with complete confidence.
This is the art form that I have mastered and give total attention to detail in each performance.

THE TEACHER ~~~
Teaching is an area that I am passionate about. Working with young aspiring musicians as well as seasoned professionals and amateurs of all ages, I found many people lacking a well rounded understanding of theory and how music works in general. This prompted me to begin teaching many years ago. When I studied with William Walton who was a Dennis Sandole disciple, I was given full permission to teach the same method and expand upon it as it naturally evolved. My varied experience gives my a unique perspective on working with people who are truly interested in expanding their talents and musical understanding.

Highlights of my career include performances as conductor and pianist for the one-and-only Mickey Rooney and pianist for a series of teaching clinics with the most recorded guitarist in the world, Tommy Tedesco.

I have also appeared for or performed with: actress & singer - Susan Anton, R&B artist - Archie Bell, Mr. QVC - Bob Bowersox, jazz & classical guitarist - Charlie Byrd, jazz guitarist - Jerry Byrd, Oregon, Rochester and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra principal bassist - Colin Corner, the one-and-only - Rodney Dangerfield, NBC Today Show Superstar Vocal Winner - Dan Gardner, legendary big band vocalist - Connie Haynes, guitarist - Jef Lee Johnson, guitar superstar - Earl Klugh, R&B superstars - Blue Magic, sports legends - Mike Schmidt & Fran Tarkenton, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members - The Shirelles, Broadway sensation Susan Stroman, legendary trumpeter & saxophonist - Glenn Zottola, governors, mayors, major political figures and prominent diplomats.

About Brian
I am a professional Violinist with over 10 years in teaching experience. One of my greatest joys these days is the time I spend with my students. At a young age I fell in love with the violin and started practicing 5-6 hours daily, and to this day I have stopped. That love is a big part of the reason why I can teach the intricate details that go in to playing an instrument and how to progress quickly. Feel free to contact me!

About Hanna
EDIT REGARDING AVAILABILITY: I will be teaching lessons virtually until mid-January, when I will again be available to teach on the Emory University campus at the Schwartz center. For this week's availability see my calendar, but I am very flexible from mid-December through mid-January. Just message me for more info!

I am a music minor at Emory University with seven years of vocal experience. I have recent experience teaching voice, but I am keeping prices low for a limited time as a new teacher. For students who are new to singing, the cost of voice lessons can be daunting. I believe that learning how to sing freely and confidently should be affordable.

I have been called back for and cast in many featured roles in musicals as community theaters as well as school-related theater. I participated in the IE Thespian Festival three tim
es and was awarded a nationally-qualifying score twice in the Solo Musical category. I have also been involved in choir and vocal jazz for many years and was named Alto section leader at two separate schools. I received training from Jordan McClellan, a well-known opera and musical theater singer in Washington State.

I focus on the basics for new students as well as intermediate ones: breath, resonance, and pitch. For students who are preparing for auditions, as someone who has been through about twenty auditions in the past few years, I can help with content, confidence, and the audition process in general.

I'm excited to hear from you, so reach out!
