About Sandra
I studied under Mr. Willis Ley at Ley Studio for eighteen years. She was an accompanist for the Heritage School of Dance for twelve years and also played for the School for the Richmond Ballet for One Year. Sandra was trained in contemporary, patriotic and classical music as well as music theory. She has taught children and adults piano both in their homes as well as in her home. She is an accomplished pianist who will give the student a rewarding and fulfilling experience in mastering the keyboard to their fullest potential and play any song for there own enjoyment and for the enjoyment of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher, I would work with the student on learning there favorite song. This would be a goal to set for the student for the first three months. They would be taught to do the scale with their right hand. The
y would learn there sharps and flats and the difference between the two key signatures. They would also learn during the first six months some of the basic terms in music theory. I would set goals, but never overwhelm the student, but work with them according to how much they could take in. They would have weekly assignments. If an assignment is not mastered during that time, then we would review it and carry it to the next week. When one assignment is mastered, then the student would work on the next. This would be a step by step processed. My goal for the student the first six months is to get that child or adult to be able to play their chords in their left hand, octaves and fillings in their right hand and know how to work the pedals. They would understand and know the key signatures and what timing they are playing in. The student would also know some of the basic music terms. Please keep in mind that this depends on how much information that the student can process. With some it could take a little bit longer. With others it would take less time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
f/w keyboard ("It's heavy, it was metal inside it!") w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect payment on any music material that I purchase at the Music Store.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Rock, Classical, Patriotic, Standard and Spiritual and also children's music for beginners. I do a wide range of music from the fifties up to today.

I was impressed. I took lessons years ago and she turned the light on to many things I have forgotten. She has inspired me to work hard to grow. I would highly recommend. I would have given 5 stars, but the comment “best teacher ever”, to me, would be inappropriate to any teacher or person of any field.

About Sara
For 15 years, I have been studying both piano and violin extensively. It is this love of music that led me to begin formally teaching four years ago. Since then, I have had the opportunity to teach not only my own private students but also in a studio in Atlanta, GA and Buford, GA. I have had the privilege of teaching students as young as 3 to those as young-at-heart of 70. Whatever age I instruct, my lessons are formulated to fit the individual. Being able to meet my students on whatever level they need has always been a great joy.
Due to my intensive background of orchestral performances, I had the opportunity to instruct students on their orchestral pieces given to them by local orchestras and prepare them for any upcoming auditions.
As a musician, I have enjoyed the opportunities of accompanying local choirs, playing with
local and well-known orchestras, performing at weddings, and providing music at various functions.
Music has always been a passion of mine since I was a young child. My parents and instructors gave me every opportunity to cultivate that love. I am so grateful to have the same chance to do so with anyone who wants to learn. Please contact me with any questions you may have.

"Music Speaks What Cannot Be Expressed, Soothes the Mind and Gives it Rest, Heals the Heart and Makes it Whole, Flows From Heaven to the Soul" ~Unknown~

Want to know what to expect during lessons? Check out the information below.

Parents and Students should expect a fun yet educational atmosphere during their lesson time. During lessons students will learn about their instrument, note recognition, rhythm, and of course how to play a song. I ask that each student have individual practice time during the week as this is the only way to truly advance and learn the instrument. I also encourage parents to be available during the lesson and during the students individual practice session. This helps ensure that students are practicing correctly (and what they are supposed to) during the week.

As a former mentor of Sara's, I know she is a great teacher! She has been involved with music since she was 5, when she began playing piano. She added violin when she turned 7 and continued with both throughout her childhood and into her adult life.. She has wonderful orchestral experience as well as sacred/religious music. Because of her love for music, she is thrilled to be able to open young children’s eyes and minds to the joys found in music.

About Dana
Hi. My name is Dana B. I have a passion for teaching students how to read music, understand basic theory and even choose some of your own music without feeling the frustrating pressure that is often associated with music lessons. I teach a foundation of piano method, technique and theory, using classics with a good mix of fun and contemporary music thrown in! I also teach voice and performance.

I was formally trained in piano for over 10 years by a teacher from the National Guild of Piano Teachers and I have been playing for more than 30 years. I have extensive professional and volunteer experience teaching children/youth of all ages. Time slots are available both after school hours and during the school day for home-schoolers.

I would love to share my knowledge and enthusiasm about music with you and your child!

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

About Leota
I'm a working actor, singer, and teacher in Los Angeles. I have a bachelor's degree in Theater from The University of California, Irvine, with an emphasis in Musical Theater.

While film is the focus in the city of angels, my passion for musical theater is still alive! I've performed in theater and musical theater shows across the globe, including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. I have also trained in music improv at UCB in Los Angeles.

No matter the level, I can teach any student to be more expressive and comfortable with their voice. Each week we will work on techniques to improve voice placement, as well as proper breathing so you don't hurt your voice even when you're sick! Whether you want to improve your high range into the classical soprano or coloratura or find
your big belt, I will get you there in a healthy and safe way! (Don't worry Gentlemen, I can get you to sing high too!).

I work with students of all ages, backgrounds and levels. Many of my students are actors with no vocal background, and some of my students are classical or operatic singers who want to work on acting and expressing themselves musically for a better overall performance. Whatever your goals are, we will accomplish them!
