Mike is a stern but gentle teacher. He is very easy going, however, Mike is very willing to push a student to reach their potential should they need it. In his own studies, Mike focuses on Jazz and improvisation. He enjoys many other styles of music as well such as rock, pop and classical.

Mike's focus for beginners learning the guitar is on technique and theory. His approach is to use basic chord progressions and single note reading. In addition he incorporates any song the student brings in and would like to learn. Mike believes that learning comes best when the student has songs they are interested in. Of course the specifics of a student's curriculum will be shaped by that student's interests.

Rich G.

Woodstock, GA

About Rich

I am a public school music teacher by day (11 years experience), a private music teacher by afternoon (16 yrs), and a gigging musician and DJ by night (16 yrs). I manage a highly successful cover band called The Retreat that performs all over the southeast. I have lead and arranged the worship music at a local church on Sundays and also have numerous original songs that have been recorded and published.

With all of this experience teaching, I am GREAT with kids and always PROFESSIONAL in my conduct.

I have 3 degrees in Music Education:
- Bachelors, Indiana University of PA
- Master
s, Auburn University
- Educational Specialist, Auburn University

I teach lessons on:
- Guitar
- Piano
- Saxophone
- Bass Guitar
- Drums
- Flute
- Recording and Music Production
- Songwriting

*** Lesson Details ***
The goal of music lessons is not to just learn the notes and mechanics of an instrument, but to become a well-rounded MUSICIAN. With my lessons, we don't just go through a book page-by-page, rather, lessons are shaped around the musical tastes and interests of the student. Musical theory concepts are applied in actual songwriting and current popular songs. I accompany the students on various instruments, imitating a real performance situation. I teach all ages; beginners to advanced musicians.

Unlike a crowded music store with a cramped little room for lessons, my lessons are taught in a large, open, and well-lit home studio. There is an open waiting area where parents can listen as well. Parking is convenient on a cul-de-sac with a clear view into the teaching studio.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Nord Stage 2 88 piano,
Yamaha Custom saxophone with Theo Wanne, Meyer, and Selmer mouthpieces,
Dr. Z RxJr amplifier with 2x12 cabinet,
Don Grosh Custom electric guitar,
Lowden O25 acoustic guitar,

Rich obviously knows what he is doing. I have three children taking lessons from him and he quickly found their strengths and weaknesses and started from there. Just a few lessons in and the kids are loving it.

Rich is an excellent music teacher! He is patient and understanding of the needs of the student. He has developed a good rapport with our grandson who is learning to play the piano. We like the fact that he teaches him to read the music as well as learning the keys on the piano. We would totally recommend him for anyone who is wanting to take up music. Rich is truly amazing!!!!

Darren W.

Marietta, GA

About Darren

Hello!
My name is Darren and I love music! Teaching is as fun as making music to me; helping someone get better, or helping them develop a comfortable understanding is as cathartic as "the real thing" in my opinion. I've been playing music since the beginning, and I feel now I have an understanding worth advertising for private, productive lessons! I primarily teach guitar. All genres proficiently, with jazz and rock being my strong-suits. But, I also teach rudimentary snare as well (marching), along with music theory! I attend KSU school of music for Jazz Performance and i feel this has got
ten me to a point where I feel confident you will learn something, whether it be a rigorous- intermediate lessons, or complete beginner lessons. I'm a very easy person to talk to, so don't hesitate to chat with me about what you wanna do!
Rock on!

Atria E.

Kennesaw, GA

About Atria

I have a B.S. in Music Engineering, but I am well knowledgeable in other subjects especially math. I have taking all math including basic courses, Algebra I & II, Geometry, Calculus I & II, and excelled in all of them. I also have talent in Painting and drawing, where any age group is accepted. I can definitely teach music theory along with beginner's piano.

I firmly support my personal slogan, "Teaching to learn loving to teach", because ultimately that's the meaning of teaching. Teaching is essentially for the student to learn the material, but at the same time the student is teaching me
patience and joy. I base my teaching method on my strong enthusiastic, optimistic, patient, and loving character. I make sure the student feels comfortable and take any amount of time until they thoroughly understand the subject of choice. Contact me on any inquiries about my tutoring services. Thank you for your time & I hope to work with you soon.

Peace and Blessings,
...

Atria is very friendly and encouraging. I am not the most confident performer and had no experience with rapping, but after taking only 2 lessons with Atria my confidence has skyrocketed. I didn't know I had it in me, but Atria helped me realize my potential as a musician.
