Casey C.

Atlanta, GA

About Casey

Hi I'm a 29 year old professional musician that has worked hard to become a first call drummer for performance, instruction, and studio session work in the Atlanta area. Over the past 5 years I have toured nationally, recorded with countless regional, national and local artists, and have gained a positive reputation in the Atlanta community as a unique, innovative, and passionate drum teacher. I studied music at The University of Mississippi and I am qualified to teach numerous styles including Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, Jazz, Electronica, World and many others. I have years of experience teaching
private and group lessons (I'm a recurring Camp Counselor in Summer music programs). I offer inspired beginning drummers of all ages the chance to learn the art of drum set playing within a basic, relaxed, and fun context.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My drum studio includes 2 drum kits to help aid in visual learning, percussion instruments from around the world, a PA system to play along to music and great vibes!

*** Travel Equipment ***
For student's home lessons I require at least one drum or drum set.

*** Specialties ***
Based within a fun, relaxed context, Casey has developed a natural teaching method that focuses on learning and understanding the building blocks of drum set playing, familiarizing and connecting these building blocks, and applying them to individual expression. He has the ability to take nearly anyone without prior drum set or rhythmic experience, and, within days, turn them into beat playing drummers. His approach focuses on: HAVING FUN, building an understanding and relationship with each drum, the basic rudimentary foundation of drumming, how to approach the drums, hold the sticks, set up the drums, and tune the drums, basic mechanical techniques, development of each limb, learning how to read basic drum charts and play to them, learning and playing the most significant beats and patterns in the history of drum set, and gaining the ability to effectively teach oneself how to improve as a drummer.

*** 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 an upright piano. 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 8.5 recording software
Sibelius 7 Notation Software
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)

Bill S.

Scottdale, GA

About Bill

I am a career musician and teacher. I am always looking for more good students, performance opportunities and studio session work. I began playing drums at the age of 10. I hold a Bachelor's degree, and am a Magna Cum Laude graduate of GA State University's Commercial Music Recording / Production program. I studied with Atlanta Symphony Principal Percussionist - Jack Bell, Mike Cebulski - Atlanta Ballet, Mark Yanchich - Atlanta Symphony, Robbie Coleman - Freddy Cole, and Ted Howe. As a career musician, I have played drums and percussion in more than 100 bands to date, touring mainly in the Eas
tern US, from the Mississippi east. I have performed with members of the Allman Bros., The Derek Trucks Band, The Atlanta Symphony, Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic, The Dixie Dregs, Boston, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Col. Bruce Hampton's Aquarium Rescue Unit, Blue Note recording artists Marcus Printup, Russell Malone, and many, many more. Let me tap on my vast knowledge and experience on the drums to provide you guidance as you travel your path to becoming all you can be on drums.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach all styles, ages, and skill levels, and I am here to help you.
I am serious about drums and drumming, but I do want you, the student to be
comfortable in the lesson setting, so you will find I teach in a casual
manner. I want you to have fun while you learn how to play! For your first
lesson all you need is a pair of drumsticks and a plain spiral bound
notebook. I will go over some basics, like how to hold the sticks, how to
move the sticks, and begin introducing you to the rudiments of drums. I feel
it is important that you learn how to read drum music, so I will have you
get a good method book. I prefer Haskall Harr's Snare drum Method, Book I.
For the drum set, I will write out exercises that start simple and build from
there. I always try to give you info that is practical, and you can use to
play music you choose. As time goes by, you will find yourself building
confidence and competence as you meet and exceed your goals on your
instrument. I will always encourage you to ask questions so can tailor the
info to meet your specific needs and desires. If you have already been
playing for a while, and need help, I encourage you to come to me. I will
give you new good information, and help find the holes in your abilities, and
fill them as you work towards your individual goals of becoming the kind of
performer you want to be. Thanks for your time, I look forward to hearing
from you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lesson room - Separate from main house. Seating for parents available.

*** Specialties ***
On the snare drum, or pad, I focus on the tradition of drums and drumming through the rudiments, concert style, and reading. On the drum set, I teach all styles of rock, jazz, fusion, R and B, country, blues, zydeco, and even polkas, etc.

I've only been going for a month or so, but have been really impressed being a first-timer in the field of music. Despite not playing any instrument before, he's been a big help not worrying about the overwhelming feeling of having so much to learn - focusing on one thing at a time.

He obviously very much knows what he's talking about and seems to be good at picking up things that I may not of noticed just following online courses only.

I started pretty late in life taking drum lessons, 49. Met Bill and have been drumming ever since. For the first few years I studied weekly with Bill and have continued off and on ever since. He has given me a better understanding of different types of music as well helping to instill the confidence and discipline to stick it out through the early, clumsy phases of learning and through his encouragement made it fun. As a teacher, I don't see how he could be beat. He has a very large knowledge base, great sense of humor, and shows keen interest in what direction his students want to go. Not to mention, he's a damn good drummer!

I have been taking lessons on and off for about 10 years with Bill. No matter how good I have become, there is always something more that Bill can teach me. He makes lessons fun and always has me playing music that I enjoy. My band mates love what he's done for me as well. lol

Linda L.

Tucker, GA

About Linda

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, music stand, paper and pencil, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
On guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I pr
efer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory. When using an electronic keyboard, I include more rhythm development, arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an electronic keyboard, in the lessons.
English: I am qualified, by years of tutoring, to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

Linda is easily the most patient and welcoming person I've ever worked with. She has incredible knowledge over a vast array of topics and she is eager to share with others. This, in my opinion, is the most important quality of all teachers. Her lessons have proved a great way to build a solid base in my field of interest. as well as providing me with a well rounded and wonderful mentor that I'm sure to rely on for many other lessons in the future- banjo or otherwise!

Ashley was very professional. My daughter responded well to her teaching style. Ashley requested the music my daughter was working on in advance and suggested other song choices for her voice. Ashley played the music on the piano while my daughter sang. She did breathing techniques and other voice warm ups too. She even gives homework. We love her and HIGHLY RECOMMED her.
