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 feel 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

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!!!
Thomas B. Gainesville, GA

About Thomas

Music has been the primary focus since second grade. After completing a Masters in Music Education from Florida State, I have directed High school chorus, and served in the music ministry in a few churches. I have taught piano and guitar to ages 5 through adult for around 8 years. My focus in teaching is to help you make your instrument one in which you can enjoy your entire life. I start where you are, beginner through advanced, and assist in making music a passion in your life as it has been for me. I currently serve as Assistant Director of Worship Arts at Gainesville FUMC where I direct multiple groups, play organ and piano in worship, manage youth music and support in the overall worship arts ministry. *** Travel Equipment *** Student needs to provide the instrument.

Lark S. Lawrenceville, GA

About Lark

I absolutely love music and teaching it to others! Having studied both clarinet and piano at the University of Georgia, I am patient and encouraging with both children and adults.

I actively help out the Athens Area Homeschool Band and have played with the Gwinnett Community Band. I enjoy teaching beginning students as well as more advanced students. It is such a huge joy to see a student grow in their understanding of music and gain the confidence that comes with it! *** Lesson Details *** I use the Bastien lesson series with my young beginning pianists which starts with being able to identify ...

Patient and Knowledgeable

Lark has turned out to be a good fit for my learning style. Trying to learn as an adult can be challenging and frustrating... And I am sure it can be a substantial test for the teacher as well. Lark has been very patient and understanding as well as very encouraging. Her lesson notes are extremely helpful as I prepare for each week's lesson. She knows her stuff and also knows how to create a good environment for the student. I am having a good experience indeed.

Flexible teaching style

Lark is extremely flexible with her teaching style. As a middle aged adult who has never read a note of music, I don't have a lot of patience with starting at the very beginning. I want to start playing songs I am interested in immediately. Lark manages to work this music into her lesson so that I keep my interest. I would recommend her to anyone who is just starting out.

Highly recommended teacher

I am in my mid-30s and picking up Mandolin for the first time without much background in music. Scott has been really great to learn from, teaching me not only the basics of scales and chords but he also has me working on songs and solos which I never thought I'd be able to do so early. I would highly recommend Scott.

My son has been taking guitar lessons from Scott for the last year. Scott has been amazing with him. Scott finds music that challenges and teaches my son while keeping his attention.

Top notch teacher.

Norman is an excellent teacher. I have been with him for just over a month now and I have came leaps and bounds. It's my first instrument that I have tried to learned and I can read music and play duets with him. He's friendly and very knowledgeable of the material also. I would say that in a couple months I will be dazzling my friends and family. So if your thinking about an instructor then Norman would be a great investment.

My daughter has been taking lessons from Mark for several months. She is doing great. She enjoys the lessons and looks forward to them each week. Mark is a fantastic teacher and keeps the lessons interesting and entertaining by understanding the music she enjoys and relating with her on that level. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

I've been taking guitar lessons across the country since 1975, and Mark is the best instructor I've ever had. His expertise on the instrument is only surpassed by his ability to make something complicated appear simple for the student. I've had more fun taking lessons and practicing in the past 6 months as Mark's student than I have in the previous 40 years. I highly recommend him.
