Nicholas H.

Smyrna, GA

I'm an experienced and dedicated musician, having played with Orchestras and Chamber groups throughout my state. My lessons are focused on relaxation, and am as laid back or strict as the student needs. Whether you're a beginner or advanced, shooting to be a church player or a pro, I have taught students for that and am the teacher for you.

I was initially skeptical about taking online music lesson for my son. But Nicholas is very methodical and very attentive so that being online does not deter the lesson quality. Highly recommend him.

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 :)

Ryan G.

Woodstock, GA

I've been teaching violin for 7 years. From the start, I emphasize the development of a beautiful sound, ear training, and notation. Lessons for beginners always begin with simple call-and-response games. Students who have experience playing in orchestra but are looking for a first private teacher or are looking for extra coaching to prepare for an audition are strongly encouraged to contact me.

About Ryan

In 2014, Ryan received a scholarship to attend the Miami Summer Music Festival in its inaugural year where he played under the baton of Grzegorz Nowak, Principal Associate Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic. In 2015, Gregory received a fellowship to attend the Round Top Festival Institute, giving a public performance as a finalist in the chamber music competition. He holds a Bachelor's of Music in Violin Performance from Kennesaw State University where he studied with Helen Kim and was a three-time finalist in the Concerto Co
mpetition. He received chamber coachings from Atlanta Symphony members Justin Bruns, Kenn Wagner, and Cathy Lynn.

I started taking weekly lessons with Ryan at the beginning of 2015 and it has been nothing but a pleasure to learn from him. His knowledge of the violin is vast, but more importantly, his passion for teaching is even deeper. It has not phased him that I am someone learning my first musical instrument later in life than when most musicians begin. His ability to think of exercises and immediately recognize technical mistakes simply by ear is amazing and helpful. I give Ryan my highest recommendation and cannot wait to continue to learn from him.

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.
