Micah D.

Kennesaw, GA

Turning Joe's into pros in no time with some laughs, scales, and of course…music!
Life is all about having great experiences, trying new things, and being the best self you can be. Learning one of the most beautiful sounding instruments of all time with an experienced professional is an absolute MUST! Whether it be Mozart or Taylor Swift, I can help you reach your goal. My passion is about helping YOU find what you YOU like to play, and showing that with just a little patience, violin playing can be both fun and easy!

About Micah

My philosophy is simple: have fun with what your doing, no matter what it is!

You can always be working hard---working diligently, and studiously while having loads of fun. That's something I consider with every student who comes through my studio-- we may be drilling and playing passages over like a well oiled machine for good autonomy, but don't be fooled! We're laughing, smiling and having a good time while learning perseverance, discipline, life force, and a WHOLE lot of creativity. Yeah, you heard me, I just used all caps right there.

I'm a professional violinist, and so naturally
I do a whole lot of violin-related-stuff in the Atlanta area: clinics, performances, lectures, masterclasses ect… I have performed with the Georgia Symphony, Rome Symphony, Columbus Symphony, Kennesaw State University Symphony, Ludwig Symphony, Macon Symphony, and Chattanooga Symphony. Currently, I am the new concert master in the Alpharetta Symphony.

And you know what the coolest part is? I want to teach YOU anything under the sun you'd like to learn! That's right, I teach Violin and Viola lessons for ABSOLUTE beginners all the way up to highly advanced students. Many of my students started with me having no clue how to even hold their bow, and in just 4 MONTHS, I was preparing them for auditions for regional all-state orchestras and playing in volunteer orchestras. Yes, you heard me right, I currently have students who have won placements in the Beethoven Chamber Youth Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, Emory Youth Orchestra, Metropolitan Youth Orchestra, and All-state orchestras.

Oh and it gets better. Music education is an all-encompassing art form, folks. I've studied the psychology of learning to play a musical instrument for over 15 years, and I've learned not from a textbook, but from EXPERIENCE that learning to play music teaches you more than just how to make music. Test scores in math, Language Arts, and problem solving skills are substantially higher in individuals who learn an instrument that those who don't. That's a statistic that's stood the test of time for the last 30 years in the realm of music pedagogy and my personal students have validated this statistic with their high level of focus and attention to detail.

Now I think the real question is, do I beat them over the head with a ruler to get them to play so well? Absolutely not! As a violin student growing up, I knew violin playing immediately became not-so-fun if I knew my lesson included being scolded too harshly, or other forms of negative reinforcement. I simply inspire my students to be the best they can be, and to carry those skills with them in all aspects of their life….and to make some awesome music in the process!

I've been taking lessons for only a few weeks now and so far micah has really helped me. I play clarinet in in hs band, and so violin is a new instrument I wanted to pick up and learn. I quickly found out that violin is tricky to learn on your own, but he was able to give me some great tips for painless calm playing techniques..would definitely recommend!

Micah was very dedicated to teaching Caitlin and Kelsey, our 2 daughters (9 and 11). He was very thoughtful accommodating of our busy schedule, since both girls also play soccer and had to frequently move lessons around. Honestly, I was afraid the girls would have to chose one or the other, but Micah was understanding of our situation, and found a way to work with us. I would say he has a very keen sense of professionalism and has gently encouraged my girls to practice at least 10-15 minutes every single day, and patiently understands that they have other activities in their day.

Micah taught our daughter Bailey for 2 years and he was the best teacher we'd ever had. As her mother, he allowed me to sit in during her weekly lessons so I could remember the concepts they'd practice to help her reinforce this during the week. I immediately noticed the change in Bailey's behavior outside of music. She was enthusiastic about studying for her math problems, saying Micah had taught her ways to turn tedious tasks/chores into enjoyable game. Currently she is now an honors student and I can only thank her music teacher for influencing her so positively. He's very professional, and always made lessons fun and engaging for her. Bailey looked forward to each lessons and is now principle chair in her high school orchestra.

David P.

Atlanta, GA

Suzuki method
Have been teaching 17 years

About David

I grew up in Birmingham, AL, Boston, MA, and Cleveland, OH, and was classically trained on violin in all three cities by members of their respective orchestras. I began studying theory in 7th grade at The Alabama School of Fine Arts. I continued theory lessons while in Boston at the New England Conservatory of Music. I attended Summer music programs at Apple Hill (New Hampshire) and Sewanee (Tennessee) and have extensive experience in orchestra, quartet, and chamber group environments.

Upon graduating Emory university in 1992 I played professionally in Destin, FL as a bassist, guitarist,
violinist, and vocalist. I performed as bassist and backing vocalist with "Salty Dog" for nearly a decade. I am the co-founder of the Destin, FL band "Beach Mice." We perform for several weddings, corporate events, and benefits every year. Beach Mice is also popular on the festival circuit on the Emerald Coast.

I relocated to Atlanta in November of 2013, and currently perform weddings, and at various restaurants and events in the Atlanta area.

I have taught individuals and group lessons on violin, bass, and guitar since 1997 and for several consecutive years at Playground Music in Fort Walton Beach.

I have several videos available on YouTube, and a website which is easily located through a simple Google search.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you fulfill your musical goals and ambitions. Happy Playing - Cheers! dp

The best.

Even to me (who is a beginner), it's clear that he understands music and its theory on a deeper level than most. He's been working to develop my basic technical skills (eg scales, chords, etc.) but also to learn songs that I love and listen to everyday. He's patient, friendly, not-rushed and just a generally all-around great teacher and great person. Highly recommend!!!

I had a great experience with David. He is really patient while also making you push your own limits. I learned a lot in the first class and I'm hooked.

He is very knowledgable about music and at times, I had to ask him to slow down and explain some of the terminology but at the same time it gave me the impetus to go and learn more. Loved the experience :)

Blake S.

Acworth, GA

Our first session will be an assessment of the current skills. We will look at sight reading, rhythm, key signatures, shifting, bowing and more as we take our first step. From there, a customized plan will be developed and music will be provided to help with new studies as well as targeting skills. I as we continue to grow, your session may also include other musicians to give you a sense of sound with other talented musicians in a trio, quartet or even orchestra setting.

About Blake

Hello and thank you for reviewing my profile. My name is Blake and I started playing the Viola in 1986 (I was in 4th Grade). I continued to develop my skills, playing with churches and symphonies throughout my youth and into my adult career. I began working with students while still in High School and have seemed to always had a student or two to work with. My focus is on posture, tone, position and quality of sound. My students love me and enjoy our time working on new and exciting music. We are not only focused on scales but to encourage and build my students as they grow into accompli
shed musicians.

How to Play the Violin Like Lindsey Stirling
The inimitable Lindsey Stirling has shaken the world’s concept of classical music. From sold-out shows around the globe to her top-ranked YouTube video for "Crystallize," she’s come a long way since being eliminated in the quarter-finals of “America’s Got Talent” in 2010. While Lindsey has experienced a meteoric rise in the music world, her success is rooted in the same principles that have guided countless artists to virtuoso status: training with a classical instructor merged with contemporary
Introduction to Reading Violin Tabs
Tablature is a form of musical notation that was invented to make reading music easier for fretted and string instruments like guitar, bass, and violin. The premise is operationally-based, meaning that rather than showing rhythm, duration, and pitch, violin tabs will show the player where and when to place their fingers on the instrument. For an improvising musician, violin tabs allow you to improvise while staying within the chord structure of a song. Tablature-style notation is most commonly
