*** Lesson Details ***
For most of us drummers and rhythmatists we cannot go an hour without banging something or tapping or humming or moving.. if this describes you or your child then Im the guy who would be delighted to foster your development in your lifelong pursuit of the ultimate beat. I cannot give you God given talent , but I can take what talent god has given you and accentuate the positive. Work with you on fundamentals, technique, timbre, timing, tuning, sight reading..the list goes on..Its a lifelong pursuit..How long you choose to pursue it is up to you.. Im here to be your mentor.

Im pretty laid back with teaching discipline. Either you got it or you dont. I cannot push you or force you into practicing.. You must inherently love music and love rhythm and love drumming or percussion. If I am working with you on Kit drumming you will be starting out with the basics unless you have experience. I normally do an assessment to determine where you are at.. If I am teaching you hand percussion or African or Asian based drums then its strictly an aural based learning experience. No books just memorization. Kit drumming will require either you have your own Drum kit if I am coming to your house or of you travel to my studio I will have 1 drum kit to share , but you must have your own sticks. I do employ books in Drum Kit lessons. I will give you the names of the books based on what I think your level is and we can go from there..

Music is a complex yet beautiful language. Once you are immersed in the culture of the beat your journey thus begins. And journeys like these last a lifetime. I hope I can be a part of your experience.

Many Blessings
One Rhythm
One Love

Willy is patient, knowledgeable & approachable. It can be a bit intimidating when learning from someone as talented as Willy, but my son felt completely comfortable. He's looking forward to the many future lessons to come.

Mark played for my wedding, and I was incredibly impressed. I had certain musical portions of my wedding pre-arranged, but those plans ended up falling apart. Mark was able to pick up and play beautiful music right when I needed him to. His flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile helped make my wedding as successful as it was! He really saved the day, and I'm so thankful he was there! If I couldn't have him at other future events, I would be happy to take any of his students because I know they would have learned from one of the best.

Sara T.

Buford, GA

About Sara

I have been playing piano and violin for 15 years. Due to my strong background in classical music, I joined the Erie Jr. Philharmonic as a first violinist where I performed with them for seven years. During those years, myself and my fellow musicians, had the opportunity to play with not only the Erie Philharmonic but also the Pittsburgh Youth Symphony.
Due to my experience with the Jr. Philharmonic I also played with the PMEA district and regional orchestra for two years.

As a pianist, I worked for four prominent churches over the years as the Director of Music where I had the responsib
ility of selecting the songs and rehearsing them.
I was also given the opportunity to accompany the local high school choir for two years for the winter and spring concerts and have played a variety of different genres.

For three years I have been teaching in my home studio, the Joyful Noise Studio. Over the past year I have begun working at the Sandy Springs Music Studio in Atlanta and also the Sound of Music Studio in Buford, GA. Music has always been an important part of my life and I love to give others the opportunity to learn a skill that will follow them their entire lives

As a former mentor of Sara's, I know she is a great teacher! She has been involved with music since she was 5, when she began playing piano. She added violin when she turned 7 and continued with both throughout her childhood and into her adult life.. She has wonderful orchestral experience as well as sacred/religious music. Because of her love for music, she is thrilled to be able to open young children’s eyes and minds to the joys found in music.
