I try to incorporate music that the student likes in to the lessons. I feel that a student is much more likely to practice a song when they truly enjoy it.
In order to communicate musical ideas most effectively, I feel it is equally as essential to develop the students ear as well as their reading abilities. Each student will receive a personally customized work packet that includes sheet music, worksheets, and possibly audio/video samples. The packet implements training techniques & exercises that will develop the students reading skills and ear-training, along with basic theory. The work packets also include sheet music to songs chosen by the students, in order allow them to apply their techniques in ways that are self-fulfilling.
I am a humble musician who works hard and has a love to spread the joy of music to others. I studied music at the University of West Georgia and graduated in 2014. I have performance experience having played with many different groups. In teaching I like to focus directly on what the student wants to acheive. There are many ways to get to the same place and I want to make sure every one of my students follows a path that fits their style of learning. In my lessons the students are encouraged to have fun but also work hard. If the student is not having fun they are missing the whole point of playing music, on the other hand if they aren't working and improving they are missing the whole point of taking lessons. It is critical to find a balance between the two to be a sucessful and happy musician.
My philosophy for music, education and life is that no two people are alike and therefore no two lessons can be alike. While I do have certain books that I like to use as a guide line I try to personalize all of my lessons for each student. For drum students we typically start with the basics of a rock beat which can translate to any style and eventually move into other styles, reading music and learning songs. Guitar students will start with basic chords and scales used for soloing as well as learning to read basic music and tablature. For piano I prefer the Bastien piano series for younger students and use various adult books for older students. Once I learn what you are interested in your particular lesson path will be tailored to you.
My teaching experince dates back to 2009, as I began studying music in Atlanta and teaching part time to supplement my living expenses. Upon graduation, I started working full time with private lessons companies in the Atlanta area and have seen great success amongst my students. My experience has been with beginners all the way to advanced, professional players and I love the challenges of the entire spectrum. My entire philosophy is based around my student's interest and having fun is the key element to the process. I encourage all of my students to enter the live world of music via open mics and jams and I am happy to accompany when my schedule allows. We can practice in bedrooms and studios all day long but until one experinces the energy of performing live, then there is an enitre energetic aspect that is not being fullfilled.

The bass is a really fun instrument for adults who have no prior experience with music. Students of any age can learn to listen for the bass lines in their favorite songs and learn how to play along.
As you look into buying an instrument for bass lessons, you will want to keep in mind what your goals are. If you are a beginner who is going to be starting off with the basics, a standard 4-string bass will be all you need for lessons. You can choose from brands such as Gibson, Fender, or Ibanez. If you are using the bass for a specific purpose such as heavy metal, or hard rock music, you may want to look into purchasing a 5-string bass, which will give you access to lower notes used in these genres.
An appropriate age to begin playing bass is around 10 years old. Younger children are typically not comfortable working with the instrument, as it is larger than some young students. Bass students must have strong hands to deal with the heavier, thicker strings. Playing the bass allows the student to play with all different types of ensembles, including jazz and rock styled groups.
Our teachers understand that every student is different, so each lesson will be different. With customized lesson plans, the teacher will work with you on your own strengths and weaknesses, so you will get as much out of the lessons as possible. You will learn how to read music, play with correct technique, and advance your musicianship, as well as any skills that may be pertinent to your personal goals.
Review by La from Issaquah
thank you musika and ed. I never thought of looking for an in-home lesson until I found musika. I have absolutely no hesitation that Ed is beyond capable. He's even offered to meet us at a music store to purchase the correct fitting instrument. how fabulous is that! We've also decided to extend the lesson time from 30 to 45 minutes. All this and just one lesson under our belt. He quickly understood where my daughter is at in level and her style of music. I'm thrilled as can be.

There are only a handful of people I count in my life who were great teachers, and Laura is one of them. Her musicianship is so secure as are her technique and personality that she zeros in on my weaknesses and devises exercises to strengthen them, and during the lesson it is not "Do this, no, do that" which is unnerving to a novice. She understands the most important part of study is relaxation, so that is easy to achieve with such a confident and compassionate human. Music is her life and she is eager to share her talent with everyone. A rare find, indeed!

“My son and I have been taking lessons with Lynn for 5 or 6 years now. She is very patient with younger students (& older students having "senior moments"). She is also flexible in her lessons in that if we want to work on theory, jazz, rock, blues, she will cater to our requests.” – Karl B., C.P.A., Aug 2015

Melissa is very encouraging, positive, supportive and patient. She knows how to explain the technical details of flute and music notation to kids in a way that makes sense to them. She has been reliable so far turning up on time and calling if there is a need to reschedule. I would definitely recommend her to others.

"My daughter is 10 years old and has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Dale J. for almost 4 years now. She is progressing nicely. His kind and gentle way make for a very positive learning experience. Mr. Dale J. is encouraging without being harsh or belittling. He is patient and the ideal instructor for my daughter."
Review by Heather Berest
I started my 5 yr old daughter with Karleen this Fall. Karleen has a calm and honest disposition. My daughter adores her and cannot wait for her arrival. I was concerned because my daughter is not so willing to "practice" during the week. Karleen advised me to allow her habits of practicing to evolve naturally as her love and understanding of piano increases. She emphasized how nurturing my daughter's love of music is most important. This was music to my ears :)
Review by Andy Snyder
Giorgi has made learning cello even more fun. From the sympathetic, "It is hard" to the precise, "Be careful about the curve of the thumb" he has strengthened learning in every lesson, without being overwhelming. He started playing a little duet on only the 3rd lesson or so, which made me feel, even as a beginner, that I'm already starting to make (occasionally screachy) music. He has suggested a variety of drills and practice techniques which have also sped up the process a lot. And he has a good sense of humor and surprising amount of patience.

I started taking voice lessons from Ali when I was 19 and a sophomore in college. Though I was hesitant to be starting "late", I felt very comfortable with Ali and her teaching style. We identified several key issues that really made a difference and improved my voice technique. It was fun to sing popular, beautiful songs in our recital! If only I lived in Los Angeles, I would still be a student. Highly recommended!
Review by Shelonda
Henry is teaching my daughter how to play piano. Henry is an excellent teacher, we really like and appreciate him. His teaching style works very well for my daughter, she is comfortable which makes learning enjoyable. Henry is very patient and I can see that he is passionate about teaching music. Great teacher for sure.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
