I am a 25 year-old graduate from Georgia State University. I am personable, passionate, and patient. The opportunity to introduce my young students to a creative outlet they can express themselves with, bring friends and family together with, and reduce stress and boost self-esteem with, is an absolute blessing. The ability to evaluate and help my wiser students' abilities, break bad habits, discover (or re-discover) my one and only true love (music), and play your music the right way, is a talent I discovered at the age of eleven. I'm here to help make musical success stories. It is my calling.
My name is Kenny Redding Jr. and I've been teaching for 6 years. I began playing piano, drums and singing at the age of 4. Since then I studied and performed on multiple instruments including piano, vocals, viola, cello, non-pitched percussion, & bass. My studies include Professional Music - Contemporary Writing & Production at Berklee College of Music, & Music Production at Full Sail University. During this time I was fortunate enough to acquire an extensive amount of knowledge & training that I feel are essential tools for success in music. Whether it was composing for film or performing classical improvisation live on broadway, I've been able to apply these tools throughout my most recent years of work experience. Diversity in my musical experience allows for me to appropriately structure my lessons in a way that caters more accurately to each students musical goals.
I am a passionate musician. I graduated from the University of West Georgia in 2014 with a percussion performance degree. I have performed with many different groups playing styles such as reggae, rock, punk, jazz, and latin. I have performed for church services, weddings, and operas. Music has been a driving force in my life and I look forward to a long musical life.
I am a fun but hardworking instructor who strives to find the prefect balance between playing music for enjoyment and practicing hard. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music, concentration in Jazz Performance, and American Studies, concentration in Jazz Studies. While at UNC Chapel Hill, I played in several groups such as the UNC Jazz Big Band, Charanga Carolina, and the UNC Guitar Ensemble. While my formal studies lie in jazz, I have also played in several rock and funk groups over the past eight years. I love passing on my acquired knowledge as a musician to new and enthusiastic students.
I am a signed artist to Big Boi of Outkast's record label Purple Ribbon Ent. and I have performed on the stages of Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Warped Tour, Late Show with David Letterman, Pitchfork Festival, Bonnaroo, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition Premier Party, Jim Henson Studios, Lopez Tonight, Monique Show, and countless others. In 2010, I was featured on Big Boi's critically acclaimed album "Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty" on the single "Follow Us" , and since then have been a songwriter,producer and studio musician for various major label recording artists. I look forward to teaching you and passing down the knowledge and insight I have learned over the last 21 years as a guitar player and the past 8 years as a professional musician.

Each lesson is tailored to the student's individual needs. No single teaching method is used by all teachers, and while some instructors will recommend certain method books, the lessons will be taught depending on the needs of the student. Generally, lessons will cover aspects of how to technically play the instrument correctly, how to work on overall musicianship skills, and how to read music. However if the student has any personal goals, the teacher will focus more attention on helping the student accomplish them.
We make it easy for adult students of any skill level to begin lessons with us. Bass is a great instrument for beginners and advanced students alike, as beginners will be able to learn new skills and apply it to playing along to their favorite music. Advanced students will be able to work on developing skills, and advancing their technique. Our in home lessons also offer a a very convenient option for adults with busy schedules, as there is no travel time, and no travel expenses.
There are many popular brands of bass guitars, including Fender, Gibson, and Ibanez. All will offer a you quality instrument. 4-string basses are standard, and are what most beginners will choose. If you are more advanced, or interested in heavier rock music, a 5 string bass may also be a good option.
In home lessons are the most convenient way to bring music into your life. By not having to add another destination to your busy schedule, you are maximizing your time, not to mention your budget by not having to pay for travel expenses. You will receive the same custom lessons as our in studio lessons, except in the the comfort of your own home.
Bass is a great instrument for older children to begin with. Due to the size of the instrument, and the weight of the heavier strings, younger children will not be able to work with the bass comfortably. If students are interested in playing with groups such as a school jazz band, the bass is a great option.

She is the most amazing teacher ever. She is not only w great teacher but she's so fun to work with. She has taught me so many things in such little amount of time things I didn't even know I could do. I recommend Andrea to everyone. She is an amazing singer and cares a lot about her students. She's the best!!

My two daughters wanted to study piano fore some time now and just recently I found Musikalessons website and teacher Milica. I can only say that my daughters are very happy with their piano lessons and simply adore Milica. They already made a great progress and we're all happy with what they learned in this short period. Thank you Musikalessons and Milica.

Travis rocks. My 7-year-old son and I both take lessons with him. Travis has moved me off the plateau I was on with lessons that focus on theory and technique. And for my son, he's been able to instill a desire and interest that were missing when he previously took piano lessons. With Travis teaching us, the limits are the ones we impose on ourselves. Needless to say, Travis himself plays a mean guitar to boot!

We've only had a few lessons with Elisa, but so far we really like her. She has a lot of great suggestions for solo pieces as well as orchestral music that involves all 3 of my boys, while also including some Christian music that we can play at church. She is very patient in explaining the lessons and encouraging!

David is not only a great musician and educator but also a delightful human. We began using David six years ago as a piano teacher for my two boys. Since then my eldest moved on to acoustic and electric guitar and my youngest electric and stand up bass. Somewhere along the way I began to take guitar lessons also (I was David's most bearded student at age 48). David always came prepared to lead but also to follow, he often asked what we were listening to and taught us how to play it. His ability to listen to a piece of music and transcribe it always left me amazed, we have several notebooks full of songs we learned individually or played as a group. After a shoulder injury David continued to impress by teaching me music theory instead of our usual lesson. I could go on forever, David made a positive impact on my family and feel fortunate to have met him.

My son enjoys his viola lesson each week with Martina. She is disciplined in her approach to teaching but always makes my son's learning experience enjoyable. She knows how to challenge him and develop excellent form. Martina is always punctual and professional. We both highly recommend her as an instructor.

"My daughter has been a student with Mark for over a year. She has come so far and has learned so much in such a short time. Mark is extremely talented and knowledgeable. He is very serious, patient and super nice. If your child or if you really WANT to learn the drums, then I highly recommend Mark. He is our third instructor and the best one yet! You will not be disappointed." Michelle S.

"Mr. Richard has been absolutely perfect for our very active two boys. He has been an excellent fit for gauging and keeping their interest far beyond what we had imagined. Our boys actually argue over who gets to go first. Mr. Richard knocks it out of the park when it comes to exceeding our expectations"

Kevin was such a fun, smart and innovative voice teacher to work with. I had the pleasure of taking lessons with him for over a year and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my time under his training. In just a few weeks I noticed my voice was stronger and I was able to apply his teaching and see the results. He explains his techniques in a way that the student is able to actually hear and feel the changes he is referring to. This allows the student to efficiently practice outside of lessons. Even further, he believed in me and truly cared about my progress. He was always energetic and focused in lessons and was continually surprised how far a song could come in just one hour of his time. Under his teaching I developed a stronger belt in my higher range, learned how to color my voice for different sounds and improved my stage presence. I wholeheartedly trust Kevin’s musical insight and was grateful that he challenged me with a wide variety of songs and styles that I hadn’t considered trying before.
