About Linda
*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoust
ic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an electronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I can also teach a bit of old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
English and Reading: I am highly qualified, to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

Linda is easily the most patient and welcoming person I've ever worked with. She has incredible knowledge over a vast array of topics and she is eager to share with others. This, in my opinion, is the most important quality of all teachers. Her lessons have proved a great way to build a solid base in my field of interest. as well as providing me with a well rounded and wonderful mentor that I'm sure to rely on for many other lessons in the future- banjo or otherwise!

Superb teacher. The lessons are fun, interesting, and immensely productive. Each session is packed with conversation practice, notes and guidance on grammar and vocabulary, and explanations for idiomatic phrases, cultural practices, and nuances of the language. The entire lesson is documented in writing for easy reference and review. David is a gifted and energetic instructor.

About Gabriel
Students, hi! My name is Gabriel H. and I can't wait to meet you. I've been teaching in private and public schools in Switzerland for the past 15 years and my wife and I have found ourselves settled in Atlanta. My students have ranged from ages 10 to 16 and seemed to have always enjoyed one on one work with me as their teacher. I have loved helping my students surprise themselves with what they're capable of. My hope is to grow my students and equip them with tools to help them enjoy learning and thrive in their strengths while not feeling overwhelmed by their shortcomings.

I went to Paeda
gogische Hochschule Kanton Thurgau (Teacher's College in the County of Thurgau, Switzerland) and earned a degree in education. I'm a patient and encouraging person and my teaching style is a little outside of the box. My hope is that we have fun without shying away from the hard work required. I also try my hardest to tailor each lesson to the personal needs of the student.
