Andre B.

Powder Springs, GA

About Andre

*Currently attending Kennesaw State University for Violin Performance.

* Originally from Erie, Pennsylvania, 18 year old Violinist Andre Barnes has been recognized both in the local and
international scene. Being selected for the biennial ASTA National High School Honors Orchestra, he performed with some of the greatest musicians of his age from all around the United States. Later that same year he was a finalist in the Honors Performance Series, culminating with performances at Carnegie Hall. He has participated in master classes and had lessons with various artist such as Noah Bendix-Balgley, David Kim, Bill Preucil, Paul Huang, Kelly Hall-Tompkins, and Shanghai Quartet and as a violist has played for Yizhak Schotten Professor of Viola at University of Michigan. Andre has led many orchestras to success. He has received honorable mention in the Georgia Chapter of ASTA string competition. He has been a member of Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, and Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra. His leadership positions include Concertmaster of Mceachern High School Orchestra, Concertmaster of the University of Georgia Orchestra Festival, Concertmaster of the Spivey Hall Honors Orchestra, he has also held the Associate Concertmaster and principal positions for the Brevard Music Festival, and Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra, and also Cobb County Honors Orchestras and All-State. As an avid chamber musician Andre is currently a member of the Atelier Quartet , and has performed Borodin String Quartet No.2, Mendelssohn String Quartet No. 2 in A Minor Op. 13, Mendelssohn Piano Trio,and many more.
He began his violin studies at the age of 11, and since has studied with musicians such as Nina Ray, Kenn Wagner- First Violinist of Atlanta Symphony, Justin Bruns - Associate Concertmaster of Atlanta Symphony, Sonja Foster, and currently a student of David Coucheron – Concertmaster of Atlanta Symphony. He has studied at the Brevard Music Center as a scholarship student with violinist Josefina Vergara- Principal 2nd Violin Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra student of Miriam Fried. In the future he plans to enter competitions such as Sphinx Competition, ASTA National Solo Competition, maybe someday Menuhin or JJV IC, also to attend music festivals such as Aspen Music Festival, Sarasota Music Festival, Bowdoin Music Festival ,Music Academy of the West, Heifetz Institute, and many more. My teaching style focuses on the individual student because no two students are the same and each requires a different approach to achieve their maximum potential in violin performance.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is different, so I tailor my lesson plans around the student's specific learning style and needs. Ultimately, my goal is for my students to love music and love playing the violin as much as I do.

I encourage students to listen to as much music as they can and if there is ever a specific song or piece they want to I am more than happy to incorporate it into the lesson!

For younger students and beginners, I use Essential Elements or Suzuki books. I believe it is important to learn to read music from a young age, so I incorporate that into lessons for beginners. Scales and etudes are also key to providing a strong foundation for young students. A similar approach is also used for adult beginners.

For intermediate students I utilize the Solos for Young Violinists books as they provide a nice transition into more extensive solo repertoire. Depending on the need of the student, I might also pick specific pieces outside of the books that I think will enhance their learning. Scales and more advanced etudes are also key.

For advanced students, I generally pick suitable pieces from the violin repertoire. I believe the reason we learn music is to be able to play and share it with others, so I like to incorporate duets to play with the student as much as possible. Scales and more difficult etudes are also incorporated.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my violin, music, metronome and tuner to the lesson. I expect the student to have their own instrument and music stand. A practice notebook is also recommended so I can take notes for the student to reference during their practice.

*** Specialties ***
Private and group lessons for all ages! I specialize in general instruction as well as performance practice and competition/audition preparation.

Jody B.

Carrollton, GA

About Jody

I'm a retired teacher who has played guitar for over 45 years. I'm a fingerstyle guitarist and perform at weddings and special events. I've taught most styles to all ages. I'm probably not the one
to teach your teenager to play heavy metal, however. I do teach ingerpicking, country, classical, pop, and even Hawaiian slack key. I specialize in beginning children and adults.

I also teach mountain dulcimer and ukulele.

With children, I use a method book to teach music fundamentals and balance that by encouraging the child to learn to play songs that interest him/her. With adults, I want to teach what you're interested in learning. I believe we learn best when we are excited by the material and challenged to reach the next level.

I have taught special needs music students - Down's Syndrome, mild autism, adults with arthritis or suffered a stroke. My training as a teacher - I have a doctorate in education - makes me uniquely qualified to work with a wide range of student abilities.
