Featured Downtown Piano Teachers

Marcus P

Instruments:

Marcus grew up in various cities along the Eastern Coast of the United States. Throughout his school career, he sang in choirs and ensembles, which helped to shape his love of music. At the age of 15, Marcus received his first guitar, and has never looked back. Marcus moved to Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C., where he sought to study under Jay Brighton. Jay had a profound influence on Marcus in the areas of music theory, ear training, and, most importantly, the discipline of practice.  After studying with Jay for a few years, Marcus moved to Virginia Beach, VA where he learned from players such as Scott Mishoe and Jay Rakes. In the mean time, Marcus began playing in various bands and recorded his first album Martian Landscape. At times, you would even be able to catch Marcus on stage with Paul Gilbert.  Upon graduating from high school, Marcus wanted to further his knowledge of the music industry, so he moved to Nashville, TN and attended Middle Tennessee State University to study Recording Engineering. During his college years, Marcus continued to play in several bands; he played on numerous recording projects; he taught private lessons; he played in musicals such as Little Shop of Horrors and Grease; and in his spare time, he studied under professional session guitarist, Gwain Reifsnider. Marcus is now working on new material, doing various studio dates, working with different bands and teaching private lessons in the Atlanta area.

Richard R

Instruments:

I have been a professional musician and teacher for over 25 years. I have taught as an adjunct Professor of Jazz Guitar at Miami-Dade Community College. I have also taught as a general music teacher for the Broward Public Schools in south Florida and for the Cobb County District Schools in the Atlanta, Georgia area. I have studied guitar privately for 15 years with Vince Bredice who has published many books on guitar for Mel Bay Publishers, one of the largest music publishers in the world. I have done private studies in Early Music of the Renaissance period with Joseph Iadone a disciple of Paul Hindemith. I attended seminars in Jazz Guitar with legendary guitarists Joe DiOrio, Tal Farlow and Jack Wilkins. My philosophy of teaching is to help the student play the music that he or she wants to play and give the student a practical understanding of the guitar and music theory. I teach the skills that enable the student to apply themselves to all forms of music. Each student is an individual and is taught in a manner that inspires his or her personality.

Nathaniel S

Instruments:

I am a very enthusiastic musician who is serious about the enrichment of people involving their lives with music. I am a graduate from Alabama State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Performance. I am also currently enrolled at Full Sail University obtaining a Master of Science degree in Instructional Design & Technology. I have experience in overseas travel for performance, in which gives me an edge of diversified interaction with aspiring musicians. During my collegiate career I have had the opportunity to perform with Intercolligiate bands across the nation and the Montgomery Symphony Orchestra.

Aubrey C

Instruments:

I am a professional educator in Georgia’s public school system. I have a passion for teaching and learning and believe that students should be well rounded individuals in their academics, including music and the arts. I am very skilled in working with diverse student populations and students of various learning styles and abilities. As a gifted education teacher my background in music plays an integral role in my student’s success as I am able to integrate music and other subject matters into a student’s learning. I have recently taught at the Summer Institute for the Gifted at Emory University and enjoy teaching younger students just as much as I enjoy teaching older students. I received my B.S. degree in Elementary Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and M.Ed. degree from Cambridge College. I began playing the piano at the age of 8 when my parents noticed that I had a gift for music and immediately enrolled me with a local piano teacher.  I have been playing the piano ever since and it is my most passionate of interests.

Jeff M

Instruments:

I am a dedicated and inspiring instructor from the New Orleans/South Mississippi area. In addition to absorbing the great feel and culture of New Orleans and its music, I studied with many great drum set artists including the legendary Alan Dawson (3 years), Henrique De Almeida (Berklee Staff), Dave DiCenso (Berklee Staff), and Ricky Sebastian (Drummers Collective).  I am a professional touring drummer who works with Grammy Artist Chris Thomas King, New Orleans Brass Band Bonerama, Mississippi Blues Ambassador Vasti Jackson, and the Atlanta-based Lefty Williams Band.   In addition to touring the United States, I have recently been to Norway, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, and Thailand.  In 2010-2012, while managing a busy touring schedule, I completed my Masters in Music Education studying with Dr. John Wooton (vibraphone/marimba) and maintaining a drum set teaching studio in the percussion department as a graduate assistant.

More Information About Piano Lessons

If purchasing an acoustic piano is not an option, we recommend that students look to buy a keyboard or digital piano for their lessons and practice. When buying a keyboard or digital piano, look to purchase one with 61 or more keys, as well as one with weighted hammer action. Having more keys, as well as weighted keys will most resemble the responsiveness and feel of an acoustic piano. Typically, keyboards are a cheaper option, they take up less space, are portable and can be played with headphones. Some of the most popular brands of keyboard or digital piano are Yamaha, Roland and Casio.
One-on-one piano lessons straight from the comfort of your own home is a great way to learn to play the piano. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, however, you will need to have a keyboard or piano at your home. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
Students at different levels of their piano playing will require different aspects of piano playing to be covered during their lessons. Beginners will start out learning the basics, intermediates will be applying the foundations to more complex compositions and advanced players will want to hone a few specific skills or styles. The basic things that beginner students will learn are things such as; learning the notes of the piano, posture and playing technique, scales and chords. At this level, students will learn simple scales and chords, such as major and minor chords, and start to put some of the basic techniques into practice via simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. Advanced players can improve sight reading, improvisational abilities or work on genre specific techniques, such as Jazz or Blues. Throughout, students can develop their musical ear, reading and theory.
Many older students are fulfilling a long standing ambition by taking piano lessons. Some students may have had lessons when they were younger and want to re-learn and others are simply looking for a new hobby. Whatever the aim or reason, there are many benefits to piano lessons for older students. Learning the piano can keep you mentally active, help maintain dexterity, improve your hearing and stimulate the brain in a creative way. Older students can develop basic technique and music theory quite quickly, as their concentration, thinking skills and self-discipline are more advanced than that of children.
Learning to play the piano as a child is a fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their motor-skills, dexterity and coordination through technical piano playing - learning scales, chords and correct fingering. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and ability to master complex thought processes through theory, repertoire and student-teacher feedback. Learning to play the piano can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, enter competitions or performing recitals.
