Christopher A.

Mount Pleasant, SC

About Christopher

I am available nationwide via Skype or through Google Hangouts for Guitar, bass and Violin lessons.
I have performed at the French Quarter Jazz festival at age 18 and alongside Russell Malone during the season's conclusion at the Fine Arts Center in downtown Atlanta. I attended Belmont University in Nashville, TN. I studied guitar under John Pell and Paul Abrams. While in school I majored in Commercial Music with an emphasis on music business. I found an internship with Yamaha musical instruments where I maintained instruments for players like John Hiatt, Christopher Cross, Peter Frampton, To
mmy Sims, Drew Zingg, Kenny Greeneberg, Larry Carlton, Skunk Baxter and Martin Taylor. Sitting in on rehearsals and sessions with these artists provided insight and experience no college course could. After graduation I went on the road for Yamaha providing artist relations for the H.O.R.D.E. tour where I worked alongside the Barenaked Ladies, Ben Harper and Blues Traveler.
I have opened for various artists including Buckwheat Zydeco, Hubert Sumlin,The Nighthawks, and the late Sean Costello. I have also performed with the Temptations. My album credits include student records at Belmont University and the EP titled, Johnnie and the Lowdowns. I am a fan of surf, jazz, and blues and have recorded some of my own creations with my own group, the C.A.T.
As a teacher I strive to show others how to play and create music. My lessons focus on providing the budding musician with the tools to become a proficient player. Creativity through knowledge is the core of my instruction.

*** Lesson Details ***
Through consistent practice progress is made on any instrument. I teach all of my beginning students to read music. This along with a chord syllabus provides a foundation for us to build a musician from the ground up.

*** Studio Equipment ***
music studio room w/ piano, organ, guitars, amps, seating for parents, recording capabilities

*** Specialties ***
Nashville numbers, chart writing, jazz theory and improvisation. Blues and standards, chord chart reading and writing. Reading music on guitar.

Corinne B.

Mount Pleasant, SC

About Corinne

MY EXPERIENCE
I am a life long singer, musician, dancer, teacher and student. I have performed, taught, and toured around the country in many capacities for over twenty years, and have an extremely varied musical background. I love nothing more than to share my knowledge, instruction and love of music and theater to those wishing to improve their musical skills and hone their craft.

In addition to teaching, I have been a full time musician for several years, and have experience performing and recording in many facets and genres, as a vocalist, musician and engineer. I have sung with Disne
y World’s Voices of Liberty, worked with hit #1 songwriter Rick Giles (Reba McEntire, Rascal Flatts), and opened up for artists including The Black-Eyed Peas, The Roots, Common, Wycelf Jean, Julian Marley and The Little River Band. My voice can be heard on several recordings, ranging from Classical, Rock, Hip Hop, Children’s Music, as well as on my original album, “All My Days”, which is available on iTunes.

I have had so many opportunities to perform and learn, constantly challenging me to be a performer and teacher. I want help those wishing to take their careers and skills to the next level, and to open them up to the possibilities available for singers and performers. My goal is to offer real world experience in addition to solid technical foundation and musical knowledge.

References and full resume are available upon request.

LAST THOUGHTS
I have had many mentors and teachers myself throughout my career, and have learned many invaluable lessons professionally and personally. Having a private teacher is invaluable for those wanting to take their talent to the next level, and I love nothing more than to share my knowledge and passion for music and performance to those looking to be better singers and musicians. If you or your child is looking for a mentor, who will be inspiring and challenging, and always encouraging, take a lesson and see what you think!

*** Lesson Details ***
WHY SHOULD YOU STUDY PRIVATELY?
There are many benefits to working with a private teacher. Individual lessons are not only extremely beneficial to those wishing to become better singers and musicians, they have also been proven to improve brain function, instill confidence and positively enhance other areas in life. Lessons will be set on a student by student basis, depending on ability, goals, practice, etc.

Every voice and instrument is different, just as every person has different goals and a different approach to reaching those goals. I will work with your natural abilities and your unique qualities, strengths and weaknesses to help you reach your full potential, no matter what your skill level. I teach a solid foundation of technique and performance that will translate into all genres of music, including Musical Theatre, Opera, Pop, Rock, Country and R&B.

We could not have asked for a more capable, professional, or knowledgeable teacher for my son as he prepared for his audition after not singing publicly for two years. My son was immediately comfortable and at ease, and she helped him tremendously. We will continue to use her as needs arise in the future. She is tremendous!

My daughter has been too self-conscious to sing in front of anyone but me, despite the fact that she has a very pretty voice. After just a few lessons with Corrine, she is so much more confident. I like that Corrine took time to get to know her and find out what my daughter liked doing, what music she liked, etc. I think Corrine is a fabulous music teacher!!

First Lesson went well with 2 kids and a mom

Corrine was skillful at redirecting 2 young children and keeping them interested and focused on the lesson, while making it interesting. This was our first lesson and we will definitely continue. Will write more as they progress.

Nolan S.

Summerville, SC

About Nolan

My name is Nolan. I primarily teach drums but have also given lessons in photography. I've been playing drums since the age of 11. I played in my high school's marching drum line. I've also played for my church's worship band. I worked for a music school in Greenville, SC giving drum lessons to 7-10 students a week. I taught students as young as 5 how to play drums! I will turn someone who has zero experience behind a drum set, into a musician who can create his or her own beats to create their own songs or drum solos! I look forward to teaching you!
