Nicholas M. Monroe, GA

About Nicholas

I am very excited to be a part of the music teaching community because it offers some of the most satisfying and positive results to our students not only in their music ability but their character as a whole. Scott Tennant offers his philosophy of music which I strongly agree with- "Music is the most powerful of all arts. It instantly stirs up emotions, conjures visions, and offers glimpses of other, higher dimensions. It arouses men to battle; kindles amorous passion in lovers; soothes a baby to sleep; comforts us when we grieve. It engages our hearts and our minds, and can bring out the best that we are. One can safely presume that not a single emotion, nor any human or natural event, has been left undocumented by music."

Before I met Mr. Nicholas music seem so distant and uncomprehensible like and alien language. Mr. Nicholas changed that whit his vast knowledge of music and a cool but to the point style of teaching. The classes are stress free and a lot of fun because Mr. Nicholas can play many instruments during the classes so every class is a little different . Mr. Nicholas has exceeded all my expectations as a music teacher.

Mark W. Snellville, GA

About Mark T

I have been playing since I was 4 years old and have been loving every minute of it. I have been fortunate to play and tour with many groups here in the US and in Europe. Over the years I have really enjoyed passing on my knowledge and love of music making to others. I would be honored if you gave me the opportunity to help your or your family achieve their musical dreams. *** Lesson Details *** First and foremost I am very laid back and that helps my students relax into the process of making great music. Expect your first lesson to be about getting to know each other and getting a firm idea of what your expectations are. Everyone learns at a different pace and has changing interests. Within the framework of moving you towards your musical goals I create custom goals and ...

Fantastic Teacher!

Mark Williams's violin teaching is very experienced and professional. He helped prepare my daughter for her county orchestra audition, and she made it! My daughter enjoys the pieces assigned, and his constructive feedback has allowed her to fix bowing technique and other problems. Each lesson is focused on improving and learning new and old skills. His teaching has made my daughter a better violinist! The schedule is also flexible to fit all my daughter's activities. If you are looking for an excellent violin teacher, Mark Williams is the one!

Excited about learning more!!!

Mark is an excellent teacher. He helped me correct my stand and holding the violin and hand position which has me playing much better. We had to back up to the basics but that will help me be a better violinist. He also has been flexiable about changing dates and time to fit my needs. I recommend him to anyone!

I sing in my church choir and just wanted a little extra help with control, particularly my breathing. Ms. Andria REALLY helped me with that! She demonstrated some techniques that I could use and WOW, what a big benefit the singing lessons have been to me. I recommend her to everyone. She is an outstanding voice teacher!

After having piano lessons with 2 other teacher in the Atlanta area, I am extremely impressed with the piano lessons my son is receiving. I love the one on one attention Ms. Andria gives most of all.

Lesley D. Covington, GA

About Lesley

UNOFFICIAL BIO: As long as I can remember, I have played music in one form or the other. I think I started singing before I could actually talk. By the age of 5 I had my first guitar and piano. By then I knew music would be a huge part of my life. It is my favorite language. It is universal. I love to teach those just starting out in music...especially children. Tapping in on a child's natural talent for the first time is an amazing thing to witness. OFFICIAL BIO: Lesley is a singer/songwriter based out of Atlanta, GA. She hit the music scene in the early 80's in Miami, Fl. and signed on with TCA management in the 90's where she toured with the company's other two bands, Marilyn Manson and The Mavericks (yes, what an eclectic combination!) ...

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 fourteen years experience in this field. In the fall of 2013 I added a group keyboard class to my schedule for young beginners. This experience has given me firm footing for approaching music students of all ages. Students respond positively to the excitement 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.

Patient and encouraging

My son has been taking piano lessons with Ginger for a year and a half starting at age 8. Playing an instrument was quite different from anything my son had tried before. He can get frustrated when things don't come easily. But Ginger is patient and makes sure to pace his lessons accordingly, sometimes giving him another week on a piece to gain more confidence. Ginger was also my son's preschool music teacher, so I've seen her in action with a group of very young children and know that anyone that can put together a preschool music program is a primo teacher!
