My daughter Aly loves her lessons with Miss Aimee! She is very patient and clear about her directions. Aly is 11 years old and learning to play guitar. Miss Aimee takes the time to listen, instruct, and give experience pointers to a beginner. Miss Aimee is a wonderful blessing to our family! I am excited about all the things my daughter is learning and putting into practice!

Truly Passionate / Dedicated Teacher

I have been taking online lessons with Aimee for about three months now. Aimee is a knowledgeable, passionate, patient, and dedicated teacher. She really cares about her students and genuinely wants them to improve. Perhaps most importantly, she caters her approach to your interests and always asks if her recommendations fit with what you are looking to do. This is possible because Aimee is multi-talented and has a deep understanding of all genres of music. At the same time, Aimee focuses on the small details that make a big difference, never missing out on an opportunity to teach and help her students improve. I would without hesitation recommend Aimee as a music teacher. You will not be disappointed!

I began taking piano lessons in grade school, played saxophone in middle school, and taught my first guitar lesson in high school.

*** Lesson Details ***
I strive to give my stud
ents the resources they need to reach their own personal goals they have set for themselves. My students can expect laid back, but extremely productive lessons. I want to find out what best suits each student and what style of music they like and teach from that. The more passionate you are about something the greater the impact will be. You will learn basic techniques that will help you build the foundation to jumpstart a musical career. If you want to be the next Led Zeppelin I will get you on the road to rock and roll; if you want to be the next Mark Hall then I will help you become the next great worship leader. Whatever your goals may be as a student, throughout a series of lessons and practice at home, I will help you easily obtain and surpass your goals as a musician.

I make sure students not only learn to play, but understand basic theory behind what they are playing. I show them how to play songs they wish to learn and how to perform them if they wish. I generally follow classic rock and pop styles, though can do others.

Ossie M.

Decatur, GA

About Ossie

I started taking piano lessons at the age of eight under the instruction of Robert Wilson before switching to Rosaline Saunders Music Studio. I play by ear, but also read music. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Louisiana at Monroe with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. My purpose is to create well rounded musicians, who can play all genres of music, and who will also know how to set the atmosphere with their music. I love teaching piano and I love teaching all ages. I began teaching piano in 2003 before becoming the founder of The Master's Hands Music Studio in 2004.
My greatest joy is seeing the knowledge and gift of music passed to others that was afforded me by the sacrifice of my late parents.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am patient but expect my students to practice so that our lessons are a continuation of the lessons taught before and not practice sessions in themselves. I use the Alfred's Basic Piano Lesson and Theory books. I believe in custom tailoring the lesson to each student. Finding out what you love and working to get you to the place of playing that music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Formal Living Room w/ f/w keyboard and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
Teach all genres, specialize in gospel and R&B

An Awesome Learning Experience

My 10-year old daughter's lessons have exceeded my expectations. Ossie M. is professional, very knowledgeable, patient, yet challenging! My daughter took piano lessons at her school for 5 years before TakeLessons and it is like she is learning a new instrument: the attention to detail, the learning of music theory, the ability to learn to read music and play-by-ear are all outstanding attributes and she's only been taking classes for a month! I can't wait to see how good she is doing this time next year. I wish I could give Ossie M. TEN STARS!!!
