About Grace

I am a Recording Artist who has worked on numerous projects including 2 of my own albums. I've been singing since 1986, graduated from Biola University, CA with a BACE degree (Education) then went on to Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA attending their vocal program and I graduated with vocational Honor.

I've been teaching since 1997, doing both private and group lessons.
I am very good with explaining and working with you to find your voice - how to use them correctly and comfortably.

I also have been involved in Church music - Worship and Praise.

My passion is to teach peopl
e how to sing so that they can be happier! :-)

I am bilingual (Korean), and have a 9 year old daughter.

My studio is located on Summit Ridge Dr. in Duluth, GA.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like having fun. I believe learning to sing should be a fun thing to do - never a stress.
I come to your level to explain things in the way you understand.
I am a laid back teacher but time to time I make sure your money and my time does not go waste. ;-)

I let you choose a song (any style) and let you sing first then start making corrections one by one until you understand the format and method of "singing"

She is so nice that she has a passion for singing. She teaches not only technique but also what it means to sing songs. I learned a lot for a short period. And she is very flexible and very kind. I have to leave the States so I can't continue taking her lessons any more. I recommend her anyone who really wants to sing well.

Casey H.

Duluth, GA

About Casey

While still in high school, three of my songs were featured on National Public Radio and I was able to play at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. I next went to school at App State and then graduated from the Atlanta Institute of Music and headlined the graduation concert! My grad school was moving around Atlanta, Savannah, Athens, Nashville, New York and Chicago as a hired guitarist, and teaching in music stores. I played in a wide range of styles and roles (engineer, promoter, musical director, band leader etc) and around 300 gigs!

I took a break last year to finish 2 books I had bounci
ng around in my head and hard drive and self published them last year! The books compliment lessons so our time is spent showing you how to play and playing together, not you looking at me, while I draw a chord. The books have tab with rhythm, chord/scale diagrams and a written description of each topic like an encyclopedia. They also show you how music fits together and give you a solid foundation to build on and music ideas you can use.

As a performer in Savannah, Georgia, my band received the "Best Blues Band" award from Connect Magazine in 2007. I'm currently endorsing Curt Mangan Strings and Gadow Guitars because they're awesome!!!

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is all about building on what you already know and pointing out what you're doing right. I'm a very laid back person and love to hear and learn new music so I try to incorporate the music you want to learn as much as possible. Above all else I try to teach you how to practice so that you get the most out of your guitar when you're not in your lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
recording studio, amps, music stand chairs...has a dog.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Travel amp, acoustic or electric, cables.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching theory, technique, performance and improvisation through song so you don't feel like you're working. I am fluent in and have performed these styles on stage: rock, jazz, blues, pop, metal, show tunes, surf, funk, jam, and R&B. I like it all! I teach you to have a solid foundation and how to get songs performance ready. I also try to encourage you to write your own music and can show you some ways to be more creative and get more mileage out of some of the things you already know.

Ginger T.

Lilburn, GA

About Ginger

I have been teaching music to young people since 1987. I began as an elementary music specialist and taught in public schools for thirteen years. After starting my family, I began to teach part time as a Preschool music and movement teacher and private piano instructor. I now have fifteen years experience in this field. In the fall of 2013, I added a group keyboard class to my schedule for young beginners. My experience in the music classroom and the piano studio continues to inform my teaching and approach to working with music students of all ages. Students respond positively to the exci
tement and beauty of making music.

During every piano lesson I aim to help the student play musically and beautifully. We listen to different styles of music and use expressive technique to recreate that style.

My piano studies began in the first-grade. I studied the piano through high school and entered college as a music major with piano as my principal instrument. I chose the flute when middle school band was offered and continued to play through high school and college. My degree course was classroom/choral music which lead me to be a University Singer at Ole Miss during my four years there. It's fair to say that music has contributed greatly to make me the person I am .

I lived in Yokkaichi Japan after graduation from college where I taught conversational English and served as a Christian missionary. When I returned to the Atlanta area, I began my music education career. My music library has grown to include books, cds and music in American Folk music, multi-cultural folk music, classical and jazz music. I've also had the privilege of gaining many hours of professional training in Orff Schulwerk , Kodaly, Choral education and working with young children .

My mission is to bring music to life in my lessons and my students' lives!

*** Lesson Details ***
I think my best teaching characteristic is encouragement. When you're learning something new, you need time to get it right. I use Alfred's Premier Performance series because it includes duets for the teacher and student to play together. This is a fun way to play rhythmically and have ensemble sound while getting started. Alfred also introduces multiple styles of music, simple folk songs to more complicated boogie and dance rhythms as well as classical selections. My students prepare music for the winter holidays and a spring recital. I introduce scales for students who are ready by the second and third year and supplement course books with popular and classical pieces.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Petrof studio upright piano, drums, CD's, library of supplemental piano music.

*** Specialties ***
Traditional method series instruction for young students through adult. I recently added the Musikgarten "Making Music at the Keyboard" curriculum to my method choices. The Musikgarten approach focuses on aural training, leading students to internalize the music they learn before playing it at the keyboard. It emphasizes hearing, singing and playing the rhythmic and melodic patterns before reading them. Like learning to read words, this approach starts with "speaking" the language of music followed by reading and writing it.

Ginger Tankersley has been a great teacher for my son Sammy for the last year. she is laid back and positive and I feel that Sam has learned quickly under her tutelage. We are continuing lessons this year. Sam had a successful recital in May and sounded to me that he had been playing more than a year. Couldn't ask for a better teachdr for my boy.

Lars N.

Duluth, GA

About Lars

Hey...my name is Lars and I am looking forward in teaching you guitar. I've been teaching guitar for about 5 years. I fully believe that anybody can learn to play well, if they work hard, stick with it and has the passion for it. Because I did. It took a lot of work for me and did not come easy. It's never easy, nor should it be, because a person is learning something real and not just pushing buttons. But the rewards of getting better are fantastic, a sense of accomplishment and confidence is being built as a result of that hard work. And of course it's really fun and in my opinion the best t
hing in the world.

I was actually searching for a gig or a band to play with when I ran across Jim's post offering jazz piano lessons. I have been playing piano for many years, but thought to myself, " I wonder if this guy can teach an old dog some new tricks?"
Well, I can't begin to express how glad I am that I gave it a try. I have been taking weekly lessons for several months now and I am extremely happy with all the new things I am learning. He is an excellent instructor, and a very kind person to know. I wish I could have taken lessons from Jim when I was a beginner! I highly recommend Jim Pearce if you are looking to learn to, or improve on playing piano.

Choosing the best position to play a particular chord during a song depends on its proximity to other chords in the song and the sound you want to achieve.
