Overview

I live to learn and teach music! Nothing is is "beneath me". I always learn more from beginners than experts- and that is the goal of teaching for me: to learn and enjoy music.

I've been taking piano, guitar, and drum lessons since I was 5. My parents always told me that if I worked as hard on my schoolwork as I did on music, I would make all A's. I went to a Rock and Roll camp in California for three years when I was about 12 where I learned all about playing in a band. Since then I've always been in a band or two or three - totally original indie/rap music, bluegrass, bar bands playing classic rock covers, Bossa nova, and many more.

I have an Associate degree in Audio Technology from SAE, and I studied Jazz guitar at Georgia State University. I have two years of experience teaching guitar, drums, piano, and voice lessons for a local Atlanta company called Courtnay & Rowe.

Ross is a great piano teacher. He is very patient with all my questions and teaches to my learning style. It's a good environment in his house too. I'm a first time piano player and Ross' genuine encouragement is nice.

I am musically handicapped. Ross helped me so much. I learned so much from him. Now all my friends wont stop asking me to play their parties!

I can't recommend Ross highly enough. He is what every student wants from an instructor: knowledgeable, helpful, patient, nonjudgmental and encouraging. His passion for music and belief in the potential of willing students to play it (if we practice!) is unmistakable, and my own interest in music has grown as a result of our relationship.
