*** Lesson Details ***
My approach to teaching is simple. The primary goal is to have fun and enjoy the experience of making and creating music. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in music or just wanting to add a bit of a creative outlet to your life, let me help.

My specialties include jazz, r&b, and pop piano styles. I do teach a little classical but primarily to beginners only. My curriculum is simple. I try to teach you what it is YOU want to know and that which fit your needs. There are some fundamentals that we all must learn, but typically I can have you playing a song your first lesson. As you progress, you will be able to learn to play songs on your own and interpret simple chord charts with melody.

For those students who already actively play, I can help hone your skills, offer performance, recording and studio tips and techniques.

90 and 120 min lessons are only offered to those students wishing to learn production and do NOT apply to piano lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Your lessons are given in my pre-production studio in my condo. Lessons take place on a digital piano either a Yamaha or a Casio Privia. If you are taking production classes, then see the list of gear below. My space is tidy but not always immaculate. I am a working musician and often have several projects juggling at once. There is room for 2 to 3 in addition to the student. My living room is always available and wi-fi for those who wait on a student is also available. More than ample parking is available at any time.

Buzz uses Cubase 7.5 recording software
Sibelius 7 Notation Software
Roland V-Synth
Korg Triton
Yamaha KX8
M-Audio Pro Keys 88
Casio Privia
full array of VST instrument & effect plug-ins for commercial recording (Waves, Soectrasonics, Kontakt 5, etc)

Kelly H.

Marietta, GA

About Kelly

Kelly has taught private flute lessons for 10+ years from beginning to advanced skill levels and children to adults. She has also helped with marching and concert bands as a woodwind instructor in various schools.

Kelly was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida. She started taking flute lessons at the age of 12 under the instruction of Betsy Hudson-Traba, principal flutist of the Sarasota Orchestra. Throughout high school, she played in Sarasota’s youth orchestra program and was a winner of the Young Artist Competition. She also won first chair flute in All-State multiple times. With
a solid foundation in flute playing, she went on to study with Eva Amsler at the Florida State University where she earned her Bachelor of Music in flute performance. She had a lot of wonderful playing opportunities here and as an undergraduate was playing in the top orchestra. Kelly was a member of the “world renown” Marching CHIEFS, where she served as section leader to 50 plus flutes. One of the more unique ensembles she participated in was the Andean ensemble, Aconcagua, where she played the zampona (panpipes) and the quena (Andean flute). Kelly decided to go abroad for graduate school earning her Master’s at a small conservatory in beautiful Lugano, Switzerland called the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana. She studied under Italian flutists, Mario Ancillotti, Stefano Parrino, and Giovanni Crola. She had many opportunities to pursue her love of traveling and work on her foreign language skills! After heading home to the States Kelly began her freelance career substituting in various orchestras in Florida including the Sarasota Orchestra, Sarasota Ballet Orchestra, and the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra. She now lives in Marietta, Georgia where she teaches privately and freelances. In addition to music, Kelly loves spending time with family, friends, and her adorable kitties (Ron & Harry) and dog (Leia). She also enjoys reading, hiking, baking, organizing, and cleaning!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in flute and piccolo solo, orchestral, band, and chamber ensemble playing and also audition prep.

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.

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.

- Flute

- 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,
