Stephen M.

Peachtree Corners, GA

About Stephen

As a more seasoned music teacher, I’m learning that it’s essential to tailor music lessons to each client’s (family’s) individual goals. And no matter what the family’s goals may be, life is too short for a music teacher to ever stress out a student or the parents. For this reason, I try my best to impart as many smiles and laughs as I can into every music lesson. Also, I have a mindset that music lessons can have high standards AND be fun, not have high standards OR be fun; however, I will always regularly communicate with parents and students to make sure that their high standards and min
e are on the same page.

As for my training, I have two degrees in vocal performance from Georgia State University and am currently “continuing education” as a staff singer at the renowned Episcopal Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta. While at Georgia State, I had the good fortune to observe in action some of the most phenomenal musicians in Atlanta: Dwight Coleman, Dr. Peter Marshall, and Maestro Michael Palmer. Since that time, I’ve studied voice privately with bass Jason Hardy and Sharon Stephenson, and I’ve fine-tuned, pun intended, both my vocal and pianistic musicianship by singing in choirs lead by phenomenal directors like Dr. Eric Nelson, Walter Huff, and Dr. Dale Adelmann.

And not being a stranger to accomplishments in teaching (voice and piano), in 2013 I was recognized as a Top Teacher for student retention, communication with parents and staff, general positive feedback, and overall professionalism. In addition, both my voice and piano students regularly receive superior ratings at the local National Federation of Music Clubs festivals; earn leading roles in school productions; and place in local talent shows.

P.S. For potential voice students, how many of you want to be a famous opera singer? My guess is, not many of you (to say the least :) However, what if I say, who would like to pretend they’re a famous bullfighter, a bird catcher (who likes to dress like a bird), an Ancient Egyptian, or a King or Queen while singing awesome music? Hopefully, more of you would try it. That’s why I love opera and classical singing. So I encourage you to watch, not just listen to, classical singing before you turn it down. You may be surprised at how cool it can be.

I am totally new to singing and this was my very first class so I was quite apprehensive. Stephen however was able to create a safe environment and within minutes I felt that it was right, that taking singing classes was not a crazy idea.

I am very happy and I hope I will be able to take many more classes with Stephen.

Mr. McCool is an excellent teacher! He just naturally shares his love for music with his students and this is a beautiful thing to experience. He is always patient and encouraging during our son's piano lessons. He is firm and serious when necessary but always friendly and kind. His teaching style is absolutely perfect for our 12 year old son who is motivated so much more by encouragement than by criticism. Stephen has a gift with children...he shows a sincere interest in what's going on in our son's life (they always have a little chat before his lesson begins). We are fortunate to have have found a wonderful music mentor for our son. I would highly recommend Mr. Stephen McCool to anyone interested in voice and/or piano lessons.

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.

Steve arrived at our home on time. He was very patient and helpful working with me as a beginner. He seems to really enjoy teaching people to play the guitar. I felt very comfortable with him immediately. He seems to quickly modify his instruction based on how much I could already do and how quickly I picked up on new things (or not...) I am looking forward to my next lesson!

About Eric

Hi! My name is Eric and I'm very excited about working with you! I've been playing drums for over 16 years and have been teaching since 2008. I graduated from the Atlanta Institute of Music in 2008 with a certificate in the Drum Musicianship program. I've been in multiple different bands and have played almost every style of music. I've also played in several different churches for all different services including youth and senior services. My biggest passion in music is for teaching. Nothing is more rewarding to me than watching one of my students grow and enjoy learning music. I am dedicated
to my students and I cater all of my lesson plans to the student's individual wants and needs. I am great with kids and can connect with any age group. I look forward to meeting you and starting our wonderful journey of music education!

I took lessons from Eric to work on some specific drumming techniques since I'd been playing for a couple years. He helped me a ton! He's a really talented player on top of being a great teacher.

Allen G.

Lawrenceville, GA

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 t
eaching 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 the group in Japan, New Zealand, Dubai, and Qatar.

Mr. Allen was very patient with my son. This was my sons first time taking music lessons of any kind and he was really comfortable with Mr. Allen. My son was very excited to return for his lessons week after week. He actually learned how to read several notes and play a little beat. We're very pleased.

Damon E.

Grayson, GA

About Damon

I have been playing guitar for over 25 years and teaching for 18 years. During this time I have taught all ages and experience levels, from beginner to advanced. I believe that learning to play guitar should be fun. If you're not enjoying it then why do it? I also believe that every student is different and learns differently so I try and structure my lessons and style to the student.

I have a bachelors degree in music, with an emphasis in classical guitar. But I really love to rock! My personal favorite style is rock guitar and I have played live and in studio with various different
bands over the past couple decades. Although that's my style yours may be different and I am comfortable and experienced in teaching many different styles, from classical, acoustic, country and jazz.

My goal in teaching is to inspire my students to love music and love playing guitar.

I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. As an adult beginner I was intimidated to start something new. Damon made me feel completely comfortable that I would be able to achieve my goal in playing guitar. Lessons were simple and to my personal ability. I love that he even gave me tips on how to motivate myself to keep practicing outside of lessons.
