Our music lesson students will have the opportunity to take lessons from the comfort of their own home or in one of the teachers studios. Careful attention is placed on each student to ensure a custom lesson plan. Our music teachers understand that every student has different needs and abilities and therefore the lessons will be planned with that knowledge in mind.
lessons are available in the following areas:
Instruments: Voice, Trumpet, Clarinet
I have been teaching since high school; working in several summer camps, after-school programs, and as a peer tutor. Performing music has been a part of my life since before I can remember. One day it clicked that I should fuse my passion for music and talent for teaching to become a Music Educator. That is how I found myself at Berklee College of Music, the #1 music school in the country. At Berklee, I performed in several bands and studio recordings around Boston. In the Music Education Department, I refined my teaching skills and learned contemporary music teaching practices for both voice and instrumental students. I also began teaching private vocal lessons and volunteered as a vocal instructor in a local community program. For my student teaching requirements, I taught General Music, Band, and Chorus to students grades Pre-K-12th grade in two local schools in Boston. After completing my degree, I returned to Atlanta where I continue work as a vocal coach in several community programs, teach private vocal lessons, and serve as the Music Teacher at a middle school in Clayton County. Teaching and performing music is my life's passion!
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Clarinet
I have been teaching private piano lessons for over 12 years and private clarinet and alto saxophone lessons for the past 5 years. I enjoy watching students grow in their knowledge of music and have children of my own, so I know what it means to be patient and encouraging with all ages (including adults)! I am also the Beginning Band Director of the Athens Area Homeschool Band and assist with solo festivals and auditions. My private students are encouraged to participate in a Christmas recital and spring music recital which is excellent motivation for them to practice and show off their skills. I also tailor the lessons to the individual's needs. For example, I use different method books with my younger piano students than with my older students or adults. My clarinet and saxophone students are also encouraged to grow, whether it may to audition for a new group, prepare for a District or All-State Band audition, or play in a recital.
Instruments: Saxophone, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: Every student is different and I try to be very attentive to the individual needs of each student. However, there are several method books for clarinet and saxophone as well as many different exercises that have been effective for my current students. For younger students or for adult beginners, I tend to start them out with the Essential Elements books or the Rubank method. I also try to start teaching scales at a young age because this opens up a whole world of possibilities for the student. Regardless of age, I believe that exercises and scales should always be balanced with something fun and occasionally I encourage my students to find music on their own that they are excited to play.
Teaching Styles: Teaching should be a healthy balance of encouragement, inspiration, and challenge. I want students to feel good about themselves while also feeling like they are working toward something and pushing themselves to be a better person and musician than they already are. Setting weekly goals and having an assignment notebook are both crucial to this process as they allow the student and teacher to remember what skills can be improved upon and what aspects of their playing that are going well. My main goal in teaching is to help my students love music as much as I do! At the end of the day, that is what teaching for me is all about.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Mallet Percussion, Conga, Latin Percussion
My methods are very indiviualized and definitely outside the box. I frequently write material directly for the student (rather than use method books) It has been demonstrated to be very effective.
Instruments: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
As an instructor I am willing to teach any student willing to learn. My number one goal is to share the knowledge that I have gained over the years, so that my students will be forever changed by my undying passion and dedication. I believe that music has and always will stand the test of time and it will never leave this earth, because it frees the world from obstructions. I have taught music for the past three years (mostly in home lessons). Jazz is a very important component to my lesson plan, because I want all of my students to understand the concept of improvisation. Improvisation makes students excited to see that music goes beyond what is on the sheet of paper. If a student is not having a good time making music, I am not doing my job correctly.

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
