About Sindhu G.

Lilburn, GA

View Full Profile

I teach beginners from a classical perspective using the Faber method with a strong emphasis on sightreading and music theory. As the students advance, we may move into other genres at the students' interest, with a continued focus on artistry and technique.

I suggest 30 minute lessons for beginning students and 45 minute lessons for all Level 1 and above piano students.

About Sindhu
Sindhu, singer and pianist, received her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Georgia State University where she studied with W. Dwight Coleman. She is familiar with many genres of music including classical, pop, christian contemporary, and music theater. Her stage credits include the roles of Cendrillon in Massenet's Cendrillon, Mi in the Atlanta Lyric Theater production of The Land of Smiles, and Voice of the Fountain in the Lincoln Center Opera production of Ainadamar.

Sindhu is also at home in orchestral singing, having sung as a featured soloist with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on several occasions, including performances of West Side Story as well as the concert setting production and Deutsche Grammophon recording of Osvaldo Golijov's Grammy Award winning Ainadamar, which she also sang at Carnegie Hall with the Orchestr
a of St. Luke's.

In addition to singing, Sindhu is accomplished pianist, having performed as a music director and accompanist for many musicals including Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Wiz, High School Musical, and the Secret Garden. She currently serves as the Children Choirs accompanist at Tucker United Methodist Church and plays regularly in the worship services at Gwinnett Community Church.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons take place once a week for either 30 or 45 minutes. I strongly suggest 30 minute lessons for all beginning piano students and 45 minute lessons for all Level 1 and above piano students as well as all voice students.

For Piano: I use the Faber method books. Lessons usually begin with a concept out of the Lesson Book followed up by an assignment from the Theory Book. If time permits, we will play out of the Performance Book, another song book, or a song of the student's choice. I always try to end the lesson with a music game that emphasizes ear training, sight-reading, and theory.

For Voice: I teach breath focused singing using a variety of approaches, the main being Bel Canto Technique. I enjoy teaching the Classical and Operatic genres of music. I begin the lesson with exercises emphasizing breathing and technique. I then move to working through songs enhancing the student's artistry. If time allows, we work on sight-reading and ear training at the end of the lesson. Voice students must be at least 14 years old.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, music stand, microphones, and mic stand. I also have recording equipment if the student needs to record themselves.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not provide any equipment besides books and materials. I expect the students to have a piano or keyboard accessible in the home.

*** Specialties ***
Classical and Contemporary Piano

Classical and Operatic Voice

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.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Your lessons are given in my pre-production studio in my condo. Lessons take place on an upright piano. If you are taking production classes, then see the list of gear below.

"I want to keep taking lessons from Buzz for the rest of my life!"
So said my 10 year old son after his first lesson with Buzz. The same kid who had been begging to quit taking piano lessons with his former teacher situation.
Buzz is a master of "following the student's inspiration." Rather than force a lesson sequence out of a book, Buzz observes the student's own thinking about the music experience and tailors fun learning objectives within or close to the student's inspiration. As a result, my son is much more willing to practice, and has recently "composed" his own piece of music, learned about different styles, and absorbed an impressive amount of music theory. Buzz is highly recommended for any student who has musical aptitude, but requires the right motivation and inspiration.

Tucker, GA

I play piano and electronic keyboard. My musical background is in jazz, pop, rock, blues, and folk music. I am not a classical pianist.
When teaching piano/keyboard, I teach primarily playing by ear, and chord theory, although I do also teach the fundamentals of reading notes.
With electronic keyboards, I teach students to become familiar with and utilize the features of their keyboard; I also teach improvisation.
As with guitar, I adapt my lessons to meet the interests, attention span, and learning styles of my students.
Students tend to enjoy taking lessons with me, because I make lessons, and music, personal and enjoyable!

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 can also teach a bit of old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
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!

Linda is easily the most patient and welcoming person I've ever worked with. She has incredible knowledge over a vast array of topics and she is eager to share with others. This, in my opinion, is the most important quality of all teachers. Her lessons have proved a great way to build a solid base in my field of interest. as well as providing me with a well rounded and wonderful mentor that I'm sure to rely on for many other lessons in the future- banjo or otherwise!

Atlanta, GA
View Full Profile

Piano lessons consist of three parts: theory, technique and song repertoire. I help my students make the connection between what they can already hear, and what that looks like on the page.

About Letha
With a performance degree from the University of Georgia, teaching certification from Georgia State and over 25 years of professional teaching experience, I am able to offer my students a diverse range of instructional resources.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons include a warmup, music theory work, vocal or instrumental technique and then a vast selection of song repertoire to support new ideas in both technique and theory. Students are directed to watch or listen to examples of master performances in their field of studies. Clear weekly goals are made between lessons and I am always encouraging! Whatever life throws at you during the week doesn't have to stop your studies cold- we will come up with a plan that fits your lifestyle.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a small Protools setup with microphones and a Kurzwell keyboard. I
like to be able to go online for some resources.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I regularly use the internet in lessons as well as standard published educational texts.

*** Specialties ***
I have been told that I am especially good at helping people make the jump from playing by rote to reading from the page. In vocal instruction, I am familiar with three schools of technique: the psycho-imagery school, the "anatomical" school, and the Italian "open throat" approach. My background in acting also contributes basic vocal projection techniques to vocal training. I am comfortable with all genres of music, including pop, rock, soul, R&B, gospel, jazz and opera. In instrumental studies, I am a woodwind doubler, reading fluently and transposing on-the-spot . As a jazz and gospel artist I improvise primarily on the flute and saxophone. My piano skills are equivalent to a second-year college piano major. I can improvise accompaniments as well as read piano scores. In addition to being a certified teacher in Georgia, I attained national certification through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in 2004.

Atlanta, GA

My methods to teaching beginners piano is very logical in that it the fundamentals I teach build upon each other. You can think of if like a pyramid. By the end of the first lesson it is my goal for the student to know the name of every single note on the 88-key piano/keyboard. A lot of what I teach can be used to learn how to play songs by ear, but I will also recommend a supplementary book for the student to practice some more conventional music theory.

About Jason
Growing up in church taught me a lot of patience especially when I decided to learn how to play the drums at eight years old. I learned from the drummer at our church and by the age of twelve I was the main drummer for my dad’s church. By the age of 14 I was the main drummer for the whole ministry.
I also picked up playing the keyboard at age 16 and I'm proficient in music theory. I'm a laid back guy and will try to make the lessons as fun as humanly possible! If the students are having fun and learning I'm having fun! I also went to school and earned a technical degree in audio engineering and production. I prefer to teach students from 8 years old to 100, but I have taught some students as young as 5 years old.

About Ginger T.

Profile_98237_pi_20160522_171148
Lilburn, GA
View Full Profile

I have been teaching private piano lessons for ten years. My students perform in an annual recital and many have played for their school holiday program. This year, I began offering my students the opportunity to play in local festivals where they earn a score and rank by level. I teach my keyboard students to play through singing the melody and finding the matching tones on the keyboard. I use the Musikgarten curriculum as well as the Piano Adventure series for my private students. In both private and group lessons my students learn to play the same music in different keys. This demonstrates how well a student is using his or her ear to play the melody. My students read and learn to write music through our theory time in our lesson. I continually aim to provide my students with additional skills on the piano. We evaluate what is being learned by it's form and key. I include repertoire beyond our method books and help my students play music they know but don't have music for.

About Ginger
I have been teaching music to young people since 1987. I began as an elementary music specialist and taught in public schools for thirteen years. After starting my family, I began to teach part time as a Preschool music and movement teacher and private piano instructor. I now have fifteen years experience in this field. In the fall of 2013, I added a group keyboard class to my schedule for young beginners. My experience in the music classroom and the piano studio continues to inform my teaching and approach to working with music students of all ages. Students respond positively to the excitement and beauty of making music.

During every piano lesson I aim to help the student play musically and beautifully. We listen to different styles of music and use expressive technique to recreate that style.

My piano studies began in the fi
rst-grade. I studied the piano through high school and entered college as a music major with piano as my principal instrument. I chose the flute when middle school band was offered and continued to play through high school and college. My degree course was classroom/choral music which lead me to be a University Singer at Ole Miss during my four years there. It's fair to say that music has contributed greatly to make me the person I am .

I lived in Yokkaichi Japan after graduation from college where I taught conversational English and served as a Christian missionary. When I returned to the Atlanta area, I began my music education career. My music library has grown to include books, cds and music in American Folk music, multi-cultural folk music, classical and jazz music. I've also had the privilege of gaining many hours of professional training in Orff Schulwerk , Kodaly, Choral education and working with young children .

My mission is to bring music to life in my lessons and my students' lives!

*** Lesson Details ***
I think my best teaching characteristic is encouragement. When you're learning something new, you need time to get it right. I use Alfred's Premier Performance series because it includes duets for the teacher and student to play together. This is a fun way to play rhythmically and have ensemble sound while getting started. Alfred also introduces multiple styles of music, simple folk songs to more complicated boogie and dance rhythms as well as classical selections. My students prepare music for the winter holidays and a spring recital. I introduce scales for students who are ready by the second and third year and supplement course books with popular and classical pieces.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Petrof studio upright piano, drums, CD's, library of supplemental piano music.

*** Specialties ***
Traditional method series instruction for young students through adult. I recently added the Musikgarten "Making Music at the Keyboard" curriculum to my method choices. The Musikgarten approach focuses on aural training, leading students to internalize the music they learn before playing it at the keyboard. It emphasizes hearing, singing and playing the rhythmic and melodic patterns before reading them. Like learning to read words, this approach starts with "speaking" the language of music followed by reading and writing it.
