Mark W.

Snellville, GA

About Mark T

I have been playing since I was 4 years old and have been loving every minute of it. I have been fortunate to play and tour with many groups here in the US and in Europe. Over the years I have really enjoyed passing on my knowledge and love of music making to others. I would be honored if you gave me the opportunity to help your or your family achieve their musical dreams.

*** Lesson Details ***
First and foremost I am very laid back and that helps my students relax into the process of making great music. Expect your first lesson to be about getting to know each other and getting a firm
idea of what your expectations are.

Everyone learns at a different pace and has changing interests. Within the framework of moving you towards your musical goals I create custom goals and lessons for my students.

What does that mean? Well, you can pick out some of your own music, customize the way you practice, decide when you want to move forward with more challenging music and many other things.

I do expect my students to learn several pieces of music at a time and perform so you can share your music. That's what it is all about after all!

*** Studio Equipment ***

*** Travel Equipment ***

Fantastic Teacher!

Mark Williams's violin teaching is very experienced and professional. He helped prepare my daughter for her county orchestra audition, and she made it! My daughter enjoys the pieces assigned, and his constructive feedback has allowed her to fix bowing technique and other problems. Each lesson is focused on improving and learning new and old skills. His teaching has made my daughter a better violinist! The schedule is also flexible to fit all my daughter's activities. If you are looking for an excellent violin teacher, Mark Williams is the one!

Excited about learning more!!!

Mark is an excellent teacher. He helped me correct my stand and holding the violin and hand position which has me playing much better. We had to back up to the basics but that will help me be a better violinist. He also has been flexiable about changing dates and time to fit my needs. I recommend him to anyone!

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 have taught piano, clarinet, and alto saxophone for several years and have children of my own; so I understand that each person is an individual and has different needs and strengths. I am also the Beginning Band Director with the Athens Area Homeschool Band and assist with solo festivals and auditions 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 ***
Please note that weekly lessons are recommended for all students. Lessons typically last for a half hour, possibly longer for more advanced students or adults. Also, it is expected for all students to practice throughout the week, therefore it is essential that each student has an instrument before beginning lessons.

For my young beginning pianists, I use the Bastien method books which start with being able to identify the notes and keys on the piano and then move to reading music on the staff. I am very patient and encouraging with young students. My goal is for them to be able to identify the notes on the keyboard, find the correct hand position, and play a few simple songs within two to three months. After six months, they will be playing songs while reading notes on the staff. They may also participate in the Spring Recital and Christmas Recital. *Please note, that I expect all beginners to have a piano or keyboard to practice on before beginning lessons. (Please look under Studio Equipment to see details and suggestions.)

For my adult beginning pianists, I use a lesson series by Alfred which combines music theory with the lesson songs and exercises. At the beginning they jump right into reading music, and within three months, the student will be able to play some nice songs. After six months, basic chords will have been introduced and they will be able play more complicated songs.

For my more advanced piano students, I use the Faber lesson series. With all students, I include music theory in each lesson, but the Faber series goes into more depth. It also covers a variety of music genres, including ragtime, jazz and classical. Also, depending on the individual, I will begin to incorporate some classical pieces as soon as they are ready. I'm always open to knowing what a student likes and pursuing songs that they will enjoy playing, particularly as they become more accomplished!

With my clarinet and alto saxophone students, I focus on scales and arpeggios, help them with songs that they are working on in band, and provide supplemental exercises, duets, or solos for them to play. I also help prepare students for middle school and high school district and all-state auditions by working on the scales, etudes, and sight reading and encourage them to participate in the Spring Music Recital.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano, keyboard, clarinet, and alto saxophone that I use for teaching, but I expect my students to have their own instrument before beginning lessons. A keyboard is fine for beginning piano students; it is not necessary to have a piano. I will be happy to recommend models and brands of keyboards to new piano students. Keyboards need to have full size keys and be 'touch sensitive' or have the 'grand piano touch', meaning how hard you press the keys will determine how loud it will sound. Some Yamaha models I recommend are: PSR E333, PSR E423, YPG 235, and EZ 220.

*** Specialties ***
I use Bastien piano method books with my younger (early elementary) piano students, and prefer the Faber piano method series with my older piano students (upper elementary through high school) which includes a variety of songs, ear training, transposing, and more music theory. With advanced piano students, I primarily focus on a variety of Classical music in addition to songs that may be of interest to them. With my adult piano students, I use the Alfred adult series which contains popular and classical songs that they may be familiar with. Each method includes music theory. I prefer teaching piano from first grade and up through adults, but have taught some five year old students as well.

I am familiar with the "Essential Elements" and "Standard of Excellence" method series for both clarinet and saxophone. I teach beginning to advanced clarinet and beginning to intermediate alto saxophone. I am classically trained on the clarinet although I enjoy playing and teaching a variety of genres.

Lark has done a great job working with Jessekah, and we have seen a great improvement in her ability. If Jessekah ever gets bored with a style, Lark will adapt and work with her to find something that works for her.

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.

Kyungee M.

Duluth, GA

About Kyungee

I have been first trained as a professional opera singer as a child in Korea. For many years, I have performed on stage. When I came to America, I have continued to pursue education in voice (and piano) at Troy University and at Baptist College of Florida while seeking other degrees.

In addition to my main focus on vocal training, I am professionally trained to play instruments such as piano, guitar, flute, and violin. I have learned to play piano and guitar to initially accompany my own singing, but I have continued to study these instruments to this day. I have been a main church pianist
, wedding pianist, collaboration pianist, and etc. For flute and violin, I have been a member of ensemble groups and orchestra (and symphonic band) and performed on various occasions.

These training has allowed me to start a music academy in Korea from 1990-1996. There, I have taught all the instruments I have learned: piano, violin, cello, flute, guitar, and voice. It started small, but it grew rapidly and before I came to US in 1996, I had over 250 students. I had hired 6 more teachers, one for each division. My students came as beginners and would leave as educated musicians, who entered competitions, performed in public events and at concerts, and sought degrees in music.

In US, I had a small music studio for many years in Alabama. My students have entered AMTA competitions for state of Alabama, sonata competitions, and many others. Some have won, and others have lost. Those who won smiled and those who lost cried, but all returned with good experiences.

Now in Georgia, I am starting to teach again. I hope to offer my new students same amount of care and education borne out of experience that I have provided for many, many years.

*** Lesson Details ***
Teaching is my passion. I have taught music for over 20 years to students of all ages, of all backgrounds, and of various levels of training. When I teach, I want to make sure that my students are enjoying the process of creating music.

Learning something new, or continuing the education may be difficult or frustrating at times. This may encourage students to give up prematurely. However, when learning is a fun experience, students can learn to truly appreciate the joy of music. I can offer you with this opportunity.

My lessons will typically consist of 3 main sections: music theory, practice (on instrument of choice), and art of performance. The degree of introductions to these will vary depending on the interest and the training level of the student. I may be using Suzuki or other curriculums that are organized and appropriate to the student's learning curve. I will accommodate the musical needs of everyone.

In terms of teaching style, I am patient, friendly, and accommodating. I like to enjoy each lessons with my students, so I will be smiling alot. It'll be a minimally stressful environment.

If you would like to have me as your music instructor, please feel free to ask for me and we'll get started on our musical journey together.

My grandson's best piano teacher

My grandson loves Mrs. Kyungee style of teaching. She is nice and knowledgeable, inspiring, and friendly. She is the right person to teach my grandson. Her passion for music is contagious. She inspires confidence and hard work which is the road to success.
Her daughter is her legacy. At the end of the my grandson's first piano lesson her daughter was gracious to play for us. Her performance was so impressive that it brought tears to my eyes.
I want to thank both of them from the bottom of my heart!

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.

My first lesson with Steve was VERY productive. I learned 6 chords and a song to practice. He re-awakened my love for the guitar and is helping me to accomplish a goal within myself. First impression- Steve is down to earth and approachable and will challenge you. We jumped right in and he pushed me right up to my capabilities while inspiring to push even more. I can't wait until the next lesson and am motivated to practice and work really hard in between so we can both get the most our of the time.

Justice E.

Lawrenceville, GA

About Justice

Hi, I am Justice
I'm a director and music producer with approximately 20 years in the music industry.
As the son of a preacher, I began music by toying with the musical instruments in my home, which transpired me to play for my father's church at the age of 14.
After 8 years of music, I became a member of various musical groups in Ghana/West Africa, and later participated in European tours with famous artists and other European groups. Living in Germany for 15 years, I studied music theory, which tremendously enhanced and polished my musical expertise.
I have become a passionate and talent
ed music teacher, with a very unique and effective style of teaching.
Today, I teach all ages with the mission to inspire and bring out the music in them.
My teaching philosophy is based on my belief that learning is fun!
Through practice and helpful instruction, I will work with you to achieve your goals in a relaxed, and encouraging environment with positivity and praise.
