Casey C.

Atlanta, GA

About Casey

Hi I'm a 29 year old professional musician that has worked hard to become a first call drummer for performance, instruction, and studio session work in the Atlanta area. Over the past 5 years I have toured nationally, recorded with countless regional, national and local artists, and have gained a positive reputation in the Atlanta community as a unique, innovative, and passionate drum teacher. I studied music at The University of Mississippi and I am qualified to teach numerous styles including Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, Jazz, Electronica, World and many others. I have years of experience teaching
private and group lessons (I'm a recurring Camp Counselor in Summer music programs). I offer inspired beginning drummers of all ages the chance to learn the art of drum set playing within a basic, relaxed, and fun context.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My drum studio includes 2 drum kits to help aid in visual learning, percussion instruments from around the world, a PA system to play along to music and great vibes!

*** Travel Equipment ***
For student's home lessons I require at least one drum or drum set.

*** Specialties ***
Based within a fun, relaxed context, Casey has developed a natural teaching method that focuses on learning and understanding the building blocks of drum set playing, familiarizing and connecting these building blocks, and applying them to individual expression. He has the ability to take nearly anyone without prior drum set or rhythmic experience, and, within days, turn them into beat playing drummers. His approach focuses on: HAVING FUN, building an understanding and relationship with each drum, the basic rudimentary foundation of drumming, how to approach the drums, hold the sticks, set up the drums, and tune the drums, basic mechanical techniques, development of each limb, learning how to read basic drum charts and play to them, learning and playing the most significant beats and patterns in the history of drum set, and gaining the ability to effectively teach oneself how to improve as a drummer.

Casey is a very informative and positive teacher. A good guy all around. He pushes you outside your comfort zone and makes you somehow feel comfortable there. Very professional and cares about the success of his students. I highly recommend him regardless of your age or ability. One lesson and you'll be hooked on the drums!

We moved to Atlanta this summer, looking out for a new drum teacher for our 10 year old son David. And there he is: absolutely smart, stunningly relaxed, ever so patient and polite and - most of all - so funny and inspiring while teaching my child! Just within these three months passed David has made such remarkable progress, playing many new rhythms and patterns, doing drum solos for minutes and improving his whole attitude. If you want a positive chemistry for your child's musical development I can fully recommend Casey as an instructor.

Justin P.

Riverdale, GA

About Justin

My name is Justin P. I have a love for music that started when I was two years old when I would always want to play on any piano, or keyboard that was around. At the age of five years old, my parents signed me up for piano where I played for 13 years at the The Piano Academy in College Park, Georgia. At the age of ten years old, I joined the band at Fayette Middle School where I started playing percussion. Upon graduation from high school and the Piano Academy, I attended the Atlanta Institute of Music where I studied in a two year rigorous musicianship program. I completed the program with a
Certificate of Musicianship in Music Production, Engineering and Recording.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide the music. Students must provide a piano

Justin provides piano lessons for my 3 daughters ages 16, 11 & 9. He has been their teacher for 4 years or so. He's professional & on time.

I'm a picky Mom. So I'm blessed to have a music teacher I feel comfortable w/ when it comes to my girls...& someone who is talented about music. I love to hear my girls play piano for me. Couldn't trade a thing!

I've been taking lessons with Justin for like a year and a half. Not only is extremely knowledgeable about piano, he teaches it well too. I previously had about 8 years of piano experience, and he catered to my level and knew exactly how to teach me. He also works around my schedule and comes to my home which is super convenient, and unlike any other instructor I've had. Justin is very professional and friendly. I recommend him as an instructor to anyone no matter your piano level.

Joseph A.

Atlanta, GA

About Joseph

I am a professional guitarist/bassist with more than 20 years experience playing in bands of various styles including hard rock, metal, country and jazz. I have toured across the U.S. and have shared the stage with acts as varied as Styx, Heart, Foreigner, Corey Smith, Drivin' & Cryin', Seven Mary Three, and Quiet Riot.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect their lessons to be laid back but still goal oriented. I strive to tailor lessons to the personal learning styles and musical preferences of my students. If the student wants to be the next solo-guitar shredder or introspective gu
itar songwriter, I want to give him/her the tools needed to succeed. After just a few months (with consistent practice at home), my students will be able to not only play along with their favorite songs but will also be able to improvise, jam with other musicians and even start writing their own songs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide an acoustic guitar for myself. The student would need to provide either an acoustic guitar or electric guitar and amp for their own use, as well as any other music stands, books, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock, blues, and country styles; I have some experience in jazz. I can teach simple chords and songs as well as scales, modes and improvisation.

Shannon B.

Tyrone, GA

About Shannon

Music is my passion, my hobby, my career and my gift. I have been performing since age 7 and teaching for the last 25 years. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in music and love to share my knowledge and experience with all ages and aptitudes - even special needs. My approach to teaching is fun but serious, laid-back but encouraging, demanding but forgiving. I teach students how to be disciplined with their practice and how to make the most of their limited time.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can help you achieve your goals! For those who want a well-rounded music education, I inclu
de music theory (note and rhythm reading), technique, ear training, improvisation and performance practice in my curriculum using a variety of methods. I enjoy working with adults interested in picking up their instrument after a number of years. Perhaps you are someone interested in pursuing an ability to play a certain style - pop, jazz, hymns, oldies, classics, or certain artists. I customize our lessons to match your objectives.
My students have an opportunity to perform publicly several times a year which encourages practice and also builds confidence. After a few lessons, I can provide an idea of where a student will be in 3-6 months. You can always expect to find me prepared with fun ideas for our lesson. I have a grand piano as well as several keyboards to add variety and fun to our lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home-grand piano in living room seating for parents
church- digital piano and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would bring my own violin to demonstrate but would expect students to have their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
For piano, I use Faber & Faber, Alfred, Bastien and Music for Little Mozarts. I include sight reading books, rhythm workbooks, improv studies, and later scales and arpeggios. For violin I have created my own hybrid using traditional methods and Suzuki.

Shannon is an excellent teacher. She makes the lessons fun. She helps the student feel confident in their abilities. Shannon encourages the student to meet the challenges they face. She understands each of her student's strengths and challenges and develops individualized lessons to meet their needs. She helps students feel comfortable during her lessons and makes sure they can practice independently with confidence. She hosts recitals so her students have chance to show off their skills and socialize with each other. I would highly recommend Shannon as a piano teacher.
