About Daniel
Graduated from Georgia Southern in 2001, with a bachelor degree in music education and Boston University in 2015, with a masters in music education.

Have worked for Atlanta public schools as a band director since Fall 2002.

Private lessons are taught on piano, guitar, and all the band instruments.

I also have a deep passion for Disc jockeying with a bias towards reggae and dance music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can except a stress free learning process. After learning the basic symbols of music notation, breathing, and simple rhythms the students will continue learning the techniques and fingerings on their chosen instrument. After mastering these basic concepts in music the children will then be given a chance to perform their songs to an instrumental accompaniment. This is good for the student who does not play
in an ensemble to have the opportunity to play and listen to other moving parts.

*** Specialties ***
music, bass guitar, bassoon, children's music, guitar, classical guitar, electric guitar, home recording, African drum, music theory, acoustic guitar, flute, oboe, trumpet, saxophone, tuba, songwriting, french horn, trombone, clarinet, recording school, piano

I must say that Mr Daniel is doing a very good job. This was my third lesson, and he is not going through a set program but is teaching me where I'm at. So he is eliminating any waste time.
I will rate Mr. Daniel with 5 stars

About Joshua
*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my instrument and a music stand for myself, and I assume the student will have their own as well. There are specific collections of songs and exercises that the student should be ready to purchase based on their level of playing and will be determined after our initial lesson. Students will want to continue to invest in other collections as they progress and I will occasionally provide additional materials as appropriate.

*** Specialties ***
I have a Bachelor of Music Education and taught middle school strings in the Houston area public schools. I utilize methods of Kodaly (certified Level I) in creating a holistic approach to teaching music and use the songs and progression of the Suzuki School for beginners. I incorporate ear-training, music theory, and music history into learning about mus
ic in addition to the mechanics of playing a string instrument. My ultimate goal is to help each student become their own teacher!

***Special Needs***
I am more than happy to explore ways in which students with special needs can engage music through listening, reading, writing, singing and even playing an instrument...let's talk!!

Being that this was my first lesson, it was mostly talking. However, Josh seems to be a very nice patient teacher and I look forward to working with him. Also looking forward to hitting some notes on the violin. 🤗

About Katherine
Hi! I'm Katherine! I am a flutist, professor, pre-college flute teacher, curriculum writer, clinician, and speaker living in Georgia. Other than playing the flute and enjoying my career in music, I'm really into dogs, cooking, travel, and making lists. I love organization, planning, reading, and writing but not so much arithmetic. I leave the math to my brilliant husband who is basically a human calculator. Armed with my flute, sheepdog, family, friends, and laptop, I enjoy my rich life as a flutist, teacher, speaker, writer, chef, dog mom, entrepreneur, and volunteer.

I have a doctorate in flute performance from the University of Washington as well as degrees in music education and flute performance from the University of Georgia. I am an experienced public school music teacher and currently teach college music classes at Geo
rgia Gwinnett College.

I make lessons as much fun and informative as possible. My personal goal for students is to feel comfortable and receptive to information during lessons. I expect students to practice daily so that we can achieve as much as possible during each lesson. I have also found that by holding students to high expectations from the beginning, they will excel much faster and flute lessons become even more rewarding. Even though I keep standards high, flute lessons are always fun and entertaining (often making use of a rubber chicken and a pair of wax lips). Students should be ready to work hard.

About Lars
Hey...my name is Lars and I am looking forward in teaching you guitar. I've been teaching guitar for about 5 years. I fully believe that anybody can learn to play well, if they work hard, stick with it and has the passion for it. Because I did. It took a lot of work for me and did not come easy. It's never easy, nor should it be, because a person is learning something real and not just pushing buttons. But the rewards of getting better are fantastic, a sense of accomplishment and confidence is being built as a result of that hard work. And of course it's really fun and in my opinion the best thing in the world.

Lars is a really good teacher. He makes teaching fun. He teaches with great patience to my 5 year old since he is too little to handle guitar. My son loves the classes and eagerly waits for the next lesson. My elder one started to play lead guitar. We would highly recommend him.

Keith is fantastic! He expects the highest level of preparation and performance from me at all my lessons and thus pushes me to be a better performer every time. He tailors my lessons to exactly what I need - specific work for upcoming auditions as well as more general work to expand my repertoire. His lessons are also not not limited singing coaching - he also provides coaching in acting and movement. I feel like I have presented some of my best work to auditors as a result of working with Keith! And he does all this in the friendliest manner possible so that my lessons are always a great combination of fun, hard work, and inspiration.

Keith is a knowledgeable and great teacher. He will let you feel comfortable at singing and doing all the practices and make you realize what the correct postures and things needed to make you feel confident. Also, he is pretty easy-going with scheduling and just let him know in advance and he will reschedule the class for you. Definitely recommended.

About Amanda
I have been a professional performance coach for the last 15 years. I have trained students ages 3-16 to find their true vocal, acting and musical potential. I provide a very personalized lesson plan for each student, with appropriate warm ups, expert repertoire selection from both current and classic Broadway Shows, and handpicked audition cuts. I trained as an educator of theater with Kids On Stage in Los Angeles after receiving my BA in Musical Theater. With the Atlanta School of the Performing Arts, I mentored children ages 3-16 in their performances at Walt Disney World, Carnegie Hall in New York, and the Bahamas on Royal Caribbean. My students have landed lead roles in musicals like Annie and Shrek. My husband and I run the performance company, K&A Theatricals, which is committed to producing cabarets, musicals, and cutting edge dra
mas. We share the stage with our students and give them the chance to shine with us and learn from us how to be professional performers.

My students have gone on to Broadway and enjoyed careers on TV. One of my students just starred as Matilda in the National Tour.

About Allen
I started playing drums at the age of 8. My playing experience began in church. I participated in the marching, concert, and jazz bands in middle and high school. By the time I had reached the age of 17, I began playing drums professionally when I was offered the opportunity to play for Dove Award-winning, Grammy nominated Southern Gospel group The Martins. After high school, I went on to study music at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, Arkansas on a music scholarship.

I relocated to Atlanta, Georgia to attend the Atlanta Institute of Music. After graduating from AIM, I began teaching privately and playing with various artists/groups around town. The summer of 2011, I embarked upon the “opportunity of a lifetime” to tour with 2x Grammy Award-winning Hip-Hop group Arrested Development in Europe. From there, I toured with th
e group in Japan, New Zealand, Dubai, and Qatar.

My son has always wanted to learn to play the drum. I contacted Take Lessons and was connected to Mr. Allen. As was expected, my son was a little nervous for his first lesson. After meeting with his teacher, Mr. Allen, he became very comfortable and was eager to attend class each week and was ready to learn. He loves learning to play the drum and he loves his teacher. Thanks Mr. Allen for being the patient and kind instructor that you are.
