Tucker, GA

View Full Profile

I have been playing guitar since I was 14, and have been performing and teaching for over 20 years.
I studied jazz guitar, composition, and theory at the Mannes Conservatory in NYC, NY., and also with several private teachers.
I teach many styles, including rock, pop, blues, folk, and jazz.
(I do NOT play classical or flamenco.)
I tailor my lessons to meet the interests and learning styles of my students. I teach playing by ear, music reading, tablature, and theory. I enjoy teaching students of all ages - children, teens, and adults.
I make lessons fun for young children, by including some musical games and activities. With teens and adults, I have the students choose the songs and styles they wish to work on, and go from there.

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!

I've been teaching guitar for years now and can help you with any style you want. We can do rock, blues, folk, metal, jazz, country, fingerstyle and classical, you name it! I want to help you reach your goals as a musician. Let's have fun!

About Jared
I am passionate about music and I strive to share this passion with my students. I started playing guitar at age seven and have been hooked ever since. I have been teaching and playing gigs for years and I have just graduated from Kennesaw State University with a Bachelors degree in Jazz Guitar Performance. I can help students with a variety of styles including Jazz, Blues, Country, Funk, Rock and Metal, Folk, Finger style and Classical guitar.

Lessons are tailored to where you are as a player, what your goals are and how serious you wish to be. No matter what, music should always be fun and something you love, and I believe I can help inspire you to have the same love for music that I have. You will find me to be a laid back teacher. Students will develop skills in a wide variety of areas including reading, chords, scales, modes, and
how to use all of this to make meaningful music.

About Maria
MISSION STATEMENT:

The mission of my studio is to create well-rounded, educated musicians who will always have a lifelong passion for the art no matter their long-term goals. I strive for my students to be:

(1) Lifelong learners who develop successful learning habits.
(2) Creative and critical thinkers who will become effective communicators.
(3) Responsible and respectful members of society who respect other cultures.
(4) Able to set short-term and long-term goals and be able to see them through to their success.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:

It is of the utmost importance that my students are well-educated in their chosen instrument; they must know and understand music and music-making. Students who can play are a dime a dozen, but students who understand the music they are playing are often hard to find. I teach students to kno
w music thoroughly, not just to “play.” I desire my students to comprehend elements of the score, to use their bodies effectively to make good sound, and to interpret music creatively and according to historical performance practices across all genres of music. Thus, I give students a purposeful education in technique, quality literature, performance and artistry, music theory, and music history.

Although students differ in ability and development, I maintain high expectations for our students. I expect attention and respect in lessons, faithful and diligent practice, careful adherence to instructions, and an “I’ll-do-my-best” attitude. If students regularly meet these expectations, then they will excel to the level that they are able. It is my joy to help students master their music, to do the best they can, and to strive for and achieve excellence.

Lastly, I want students to enjoy and appreciate their instrument, music, and music-making; and I know as as a teacher, I am very influential in making this happen. Students develop enjoyment of music by understanding music, experiencing success in music, being exposed to good and varied genres of music, and receiving instruction from a teacher who is enthusiastic and encouraging. It is my goal to provide all of these opportunities for students, and as a result their lives will be enriched as they enjoy their instrument.

Learn to play your favorite songs and styles, and compose your own music! I’m a guitarist with twenty years of playing experience, and one thing I’ve learned is that music should be fun! That’s why I offer a flexible curriculum with an emphasis on technique, ear training, and the practical application of music theory that’s tailored to each individual student’s preferences and goals. Shoot me a message and let’s play, y’all!

About David
Hi, I'm David. I've been playing the guitar since 1997, playing around town in bands since 2000, and teaching since 2014. I attended the guitar program at The Atlanta Institute of Music. I'm well versed in rock, metal, blues, bluegrass, jazz, and country guitar.

My approach to teaching is simple, flexible, and is based my personal experiences with lessons, both privately and in an academic setting. Namely, that playing music is fun, lessons should be fun, and that students progress more and are better able to achive their goals when presented with a flexible and personalized curriculum. I don't believe in a "one size fits all" approach; I believe that fundamentals like reading, ear training and technique are better learned by focusing on the student's personal tastes and preferences as a guide, rather than relying on dull method books.
I don't want my students to be "learning" the guitar, I want them to be playing, and playing the music they love.

The thing that makes guitar lessons with me unique is my understanding both as a musician who has learned by ear as well as one who has been professionally trained to read music and understand the theory behind it. Most importantly, I've been teaching for 11 years, and I understand exactly how to get results for you fast.

Playing guitar comes easy like drinking water for me. I quit the corporate world to fully commit to my passion of music where I produce, record, mix, master and practice every day. Performing every week, I don't just play guitar. I also play piano, sing, write songs and I know how to use industry-standard music software. I not only am knowledgeable and proficient in many styles, but I also listen to and enjoy all genres. I can show you that music is for everybody, whether you are a professional artist, or just want some therapy, this is a healing component of life, so it's nothing for me to open this world for anyone that wants to learn. There are no egos attached with me, so I'm here to help with any way and be open-minded. Teaching is also a learning experience, so learning how to open the Muse to people I am wholly grateful for. I am not a BSer. This is what I do everyday. I don't mess around with my craft.

About Erik
I'm lead vocalist, lead guitarist & songwriter for a jazz/future soul band that is currently the house band for Gallery 992. I graduated from Clayton County Fine Arts Magnet High School, and am currently teaching lessons to students ranging in ability from beginner to intermediate. My experience and training makes learning the beauty of music fun and exciting.

Currently, I run a studio producing for other artists' creative projects, play for an active jazz band and am a songwriter under BMI. I spend much of my time writing and recording for my projects and other artists. My songs have been featured on short films and artist EPs.

I teach students in my home teaching studio in Atlanta,Georgia where we can vibe out and build with each other. I work with guitarists, pianists, horn players, producers, songwriters, engineers, singers and r
appers with different skills and different goals.

I regularly teach: Jazz, Alternative, Rock, Soul, R&B, Blues, Hip-Hop, Pop, Indie Rock and Funk
