Linda Eder, Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Lena Horne, Judy Garland, Whitney Houston, Billie Holliday, and Lara Fabian, Barbra Streisand

*** Lesson Details ***
Ali loves to share her passion of music to the world and especially through her students. She loves to share new ideas and nuances along with the basics and fundamentals of technique. Although practice can be boring for the student, asking a student to pick at least one song to work on can help the student and the teacher have fun and learn at the same time. After a few months, not only will her students have fun, but they will learn how to be a better person and musician.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Just the music I assign and their appropriate instrument

About Shannon
Music is my passion, my hobby, my career and my gift. I have been performing since age 7 and teaching for the last 25 years. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in music and love to share my knowledge and experience with all ages and aptitudes - even special needs. My approach to teaching is fun but serious, laid-back but encouraging, demanding but forgiving. I teach students how to be disciplined with their practice and how to make the most of their limited time.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can help you achieve your goals! For those who want a well-rounded music education, I include music theory (note and rhythm reading), technique, ear training, improvisation and performance practice in my curriculum using a variety of methods. I enjoy working with adults interested in picking up their instrument after a number of years. P
erhaps you are someone interested in pursuing an ability to play a certain style - pop, jazz, hymns, oldies, classics, or certain artists. I customize our lessons to match your objectives.
My students have an opportunity to perform publicly several times a year which encourages practice and also builds confidence. After a few lessons, I can provide an idea of where a student will be in 3-6 months. You can always expect to find me prepared with fun ideas for our lesson. I have a grand piano as well as several keyboards to add variety and fun to our lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home-grand piano in living room seating for parents
church- digital piano and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would bring my own violin to demonstrate but would expect students to have their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
For piano, I use Faber & Faber, Alfred, Bastien and Music for Little Mozarts. I include sight reading books, rhythm workbooks, improv studies, and later scales and arpeggios. For violin I have created my own hybrid using traditional methods and Suzuki.

Ashley has been amazing with my son. She has taught him for almost two years now and he continues to enjoy learning piano. She is very patient, remains calm and engaging, is able to adjust the lesson as needed, and provides a positive and fun atmosphere for learning. I never hesitate to recommend her to any parents searching for a piano instructor.

About Patrick
I am a professional guitarist, composer, and educator living in the Greater Atlanta Area. I started playing guitar while in high school at Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School. I owe a lot of my success to my time spent here as this school is consistently ranked one of the top schools in the nation.
I wasn't a "naturally gifted' musician, so if you are just starting out don't worry! I've been there and I have picked up a lot of tips and tricks along the way to help you out!
After high school, I decided to further pursue my passion for music and was accepted to Kennesaw State University as a Jazz Performance Major. Shortly after arriving in Kennesaw I began performing all over Atlanta as a sideman in various groups and even started a few groups of my own. I have had some great opportunities to tour and travel across the United States playing
music, it is a really great feeling.I was a recipient of the GA Music Hall of Fame Talent Award in 2014 where I performed on national television for the first time. In 2016 I recorded an album with a good friend of mine, Morgan Guerin, entitled "The Saga" which reached #3 on the iTunes Jazz Charts on the first day of its release.

I have recently graduated from KSU with my Jazz Degree and have been teaching and performing extensively. Teaching has been a very rewarding part of my life, it has given me the opportunity to learn and grow as a musician in ways that performing simply cannot compete with. I really look forward to working with you and being a part of your musical journey!

Since school, he was involved with bands where he played the piano, keyboards and developed his interest in song writing, production and sound designing. He has several published newspaper articles to his accolade. All of these experiences motivated and inspired him to seek a career in music. Joseph went on to complete his training in classical piano and achieved an ATCL degree (Trinity college London) in Piano.
Presently, Joseph has over 10 years of experience in teaching music privately as well as in a classroom environment. He has taught in two private IB schools as a ‘Music Teacher’ and 'Director of Music' where he taught elementary, middle and high school. He taught musi

He selects a repertoire for students based on their skill level. He creates a curriculum which helps them achieve their goals whether it be learning to read music, playing by ear, or simply learning to play their favorite covers. He likes to start out with a basic curriculum and adjusts it according to how quickly the student absorbs, understands and applies the information.

Very talented you lady. Was prompt, dressed nice, very polite and professional. My son enjoyed his lesson very much. She was thorough and patient, and had a wonderful disposition. My son has trouble catching on at times and even though she had to repeat her instructions to him, a few times, she never lost patience with him. He liked her a lot and wants to continue getting lessons from her. Her rates were very reasonable and I would highly recommend her to others.

I've never played a musical instrument in my life prior to learning Trumpet and thanks to Cierra, I was able to get the basics down rather quickly and enhance my rookie music skills within the first few weeks! I would recommend Cierra any day due to her patience and resilience dealing with a stubborn college student like myself. Take Cierra!
