Ms Aimee is a wonderful instructor. Always prepaired, and on time. She is also flexible and is willing to reschedule lessons. You can tell she cares about her students and my daughter (5 yrs old) always has a great time.

About Daniel
Graduated from Georgia Southern in 2001, with a bachelor degree in music education and Boston University in 2015, with a masters in music education.

Have worked for Atlanta public schools as a band director since Fall 2002.

Private lessons are taught on piano, guitar, and all the band instruments.

I also have a deep passion for Disc jockeying with a bias towards reggae and dance music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can except a stress free learning process. After learning the basic symbols of music notation, breathing, and simple rhythms the students will continue learning t
he techniques and fingerings on their chosen instrument. After mastering these basic concepts in music the children will then be given a chance to perform their songs to an instrumental accompaniment. This is good for the student who does not play in an ensemble to have the opportunity to play and listen to other moving parts.

*** Specialties ***
music, bass guitar, bassoon, children's music, guitar, classical guitar, electric guitar, home recording, African drum, music theory, acoustic guitar, flute, oboe, trumpet, saxophone, tuba, songwriting, french horn, trombone, clarinet, recording school, piano
My method utilizes maracas and rhythm guitar, played Simultaneously to produce a full ensemble effect.

Daniel is an excellent music teacher! It is apparent that he is learned and passionate about his field. He relates to my teen very well. Only regret is not finding him sooner.

I must say that Mr Daniel is doing a very good job. This was my third lesson, and he is not going through a set program but is teaching me where I'm at. So he is eliminating any waste time.
I will rate Mr. Daniel with 5 stars
*****GREAT JOB*****

About Steven
Hey there, guys! I am a percussionist and studio drummer and DJ working out of Morgan County, GA. I am trained in music theory and orchestral percussion, as well as many styles of latin percussion instruments. I also have 6 years of experience in the Atlanta music scene as a dj, and I am familiar with most production programs out today. Of course, I also have many hours behind a drum kit, and am well versed in every level of playing, from the green thumb beginners to the studio-ready professionals. I'd love to share some of my knowledge with you, and hope I can help you find your creative side
! I prefer to work via video, to allow you to be in the comfort of your home, on your own kit, drum, dj controller, cdj's, or vinyl decks to ensure that you get the most accurate feedback and baseline for what you are trying to accomplish. I will be there every step of the way to encourage and guide you. Excited to work with you in the future!
