Jessa D.

Cumming, GA

About Jessa

At eight years old my great-aunt offered to pay for me to take an extracurricular activity and a little voice whispered to me - take piano lessons. As soon as I started lessons I was recognized for my talent. I taught my skills at the piano only 4 years after that, teaching my siblings the basics of what I already knew. And I never stopped. I was mentored by one of the foremost teachers in all of Vermont, USA. She taught me about how to successfully teach young pianists to learn the piano. Today I teach piano in my home to a growing number of students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students should f
eel relaxed with me and enjoy the time we take to learn the piano. I tailor my style to each student. Some students need immediate correction and forthright instruction, while others need patience as I guide them in discovering the piano. I respect the individuality of each student. The goal is that within the first three months of working with me, students will be reading and playing basic music.

Great Teacher!!

My 10 year old Son, has been taking lessons from Jessa for about 6 weeks now - he has learnt in leaps and bounds from Jessa. She is very patient, kind and very precise in explaining to my son, she is very clear and has a great way with children. I have appreciated her professionalism, and especially helping him believe in himself and build his self confidence. This has been a very positive experience in many ways. I highly recommend Jessa as a piano teacher - we love her!!!

Casey H.

Duluth, GA

About Casey

While still in high school, three of my songs were featured on National Public Radio and I was able to play at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. I next went to school at App State and then graduated from the Atlanta Institute of Music and headlined the graduation concert! My grad school was moving around Atlanta, Savannah, Athens, Nashville, New York and Chicago as a hired guitarist, and teaching in music stores. I played in a wide range of styles and roles (engineer, promoter, musical director, band leader etc) and around 300 gigs!

I took a break last year to finish 2 books I had bounci
ng around in my head and hard drive and self published them last year! The books compliment lessons so our time is spent showing you how to play and playing together, not you looking at me, while I draw a chord. The books have tab with rhythm, chord/scale diagrams and a written description of each topic like an encyclopedia. They also show you how music fits together and give you a solid foundation to build on and music ideas you can use.

As a performer in Savannah, Georgia, my band received the "Best Blues Band" award from Connect Magazine in 2007. I'm currently endorsing Curt Mangan Strings and Gadow Guitars because they're awesome!!!

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is all about building on what you already know and pointing out what you're doing right. I'm a very laid back person and love to hear and learn new music so I try to incorporate the music you want to learn as much as possible. Above all else I try to teach you how to practice so that you get the most out of your guitar when you're not in your lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
recording studio, amps, music stand chairs...has a dog.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Travel amp, acoustic or electric, cables.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching theory, technique, performance and improvisation through song so you don't feel like you're working. I am fluent in and have performed these styles on stage: rock, jazz, blues, pop, metal, show tunes, surf, funk, jam, and R&B. I like it all! I teach you to have a solid foundation and how to get songs performance ready. I also try to encourage you to write your own music and can show you some ways to be more creative and get more mileage out of some of the things you already know.

Mark played for my wedding, and I was incredibly impressed. I had certain musical portions of my wedding pre-arranged, but those plans ended up falling apart. Mark was able to pick up and play beautiful music right when I needed him to. His flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile helped make my wedding as successful as it was! He really saved the day, and I'm so thankful he was there! If I couldn't have him at other future events, I would be happy to take any of his students because I know they would have learned from one of the best.

Steve F.

Lawrenceville, GA

About Steve

Steve was born in Joliet, IL and at the young age of 10, he discovered his love of music. A music program for his class with “live” musicians playing real instruments ignited his life long vocation. From that day to this, his fascination with music has only gotten stronger. After 5 years of accordion lessons Steve began to take an interest in the guitar and started taking lessons. Through the years Steve has not only developed a love for the guitar, but the love of teaching the guitar. At 22, he got into his first road band and spent the next 8 years playing concerts sharing the stage with man
y of the great “name” bands on tour as well. Bands such as Blood, Sweat & Tears, Sugarloaf and Iron Butterfly are just a few to mention.

When he came off the road Steve and his brother opened a music store and he began teaching the guitar. Steve keeps the student in mind and creates a way to make the lessons fun and interesting. When Steve was offered a gig as Billy Joe Royal’s guitarist it was back on the road. Steve has also done road work with such notables as The Classics IV and Archie Bell. After the tours Steve opened a recording studio and for many years he played on many artists original songs playing guitar, keyboard and bass guitar as needed, as well as doing the engineering on the tracks. During this time Steve began to rekindle his love of teaching guitar and began accepting students again. Steve says, “Teaching is one of the most enjoyable aspects of music”. When he finally closed the studio down he maintained a number of students and still does. Today, Steve also performs regularly with The Erin Hill Band.

My first lesson with Steve was VERY productive. I learned 6 chords and a song to practice. He re-awakened my love for the guitar and is helping me to accomplish a goal within myself. First impression- Steve is down to earth and approachable and will challenge you. We jumped right in and he pushed me right up to my capabilities while inspiring to push even more. I can't wait until the next lesson and am motivated to practice and work really hard in between so we can both get the most our of the time.

Megan G.

Gainesville, GA

About Megan

My name is Megan G., and I would love to be your new violin teacher. In 2012, I received my Master of Music Degree in violin performance as well as my Bachelor of Music Degree in violin performance, suma cum laude, in 2010, from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. While there, I performed a range of works with world renowned violinist Robert McDuffie in The Robert McDuffie Center for Strings ranging from classics such as Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to modern works like Philip Glass’s American Four Seasons under Maestro Robert Spano, conductor of Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. I was also selected to p
erform Mendelssohn’s Octet alongside the Saint Lawrence String Quartet, to play in the Rome Chamber Music Festival in Rome, Italy, and to be part of a string quartet to perform at the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival. I began teaching in 2001, and have enjoyed teaching students ranging in age from 5-70. Whether four or ninety years old, begin learning violin today!

I've been in love with music for as long as I can remember. And I fell in love with the violin after seeing a string treo preform in a fancy lobby. I first started taking violin lessons from someone in town when I was five years old. But after years of lessons, I felt I wasn't truly improving. I got discouraged and quit taking formal lessons for many years. I picked up some instruments by ear and continued to play the violin on my own; but finally, after joining an orchestra and feeling as if I needed some direction, I started taking lessons from Megan. I play the Violin, piano, drums, guitar, and the Erhu; I know what it is like to learn how to play an instrument, and having a patient, kind, yet extremely qualified instructor such a Megan is crucial. I was only able to learn from her for around a year before going off to college, but I improved immensely under her direction. Since then, I have been in several orchestra performances, including preforming as a violinist in an award winning orchestra at a commencement competition at my college, with an audience of over 5,000. I have never regretted learning an instrument and I certainly have never regretted taking lessons from Megan. I would encourage anyone from beginner level, to even advanced musicians to take lessons from her. I'm so thankful for the experience and musical knowledge I have obtained from this professional; as well as the friendship I was able to have with my teacher.
