What To Expect From Your Lessons:
During a first lesson I assess the current level and ability of a student and develop a curriculum that is catered to meet the musical needs and interests of each person. You’ll learn how to develop technique, expand your knowledge in music theory, ear training, learn songs that are attainable for your current level, and develop practice strategies to help you get to your musical goals with ease.
Prior to March 2020, private lessons were primarily taught at Maple Street Guitars, with limited in-home lessons. Currently lessons are taught primarily on zoom as many clients discovered the ease of continuing their musical studies without the burden of Atlanta traffic; however, some in-home lessons have resumed in select areas.
About My Students:
A wide range of guitar students have crossed my path over the years. Anywhere from the novice player, beginner music enthusiast, to the professional seeking new ideas. Ages have ranged from 5 to 85. Yes! It’s never too late to learn something new! I do teach younger children on the condition that a parent or adult is periodically in the lesson. As far as intermediate and advanced, I have successfully prepared students for performances, competitions, college auditions, and assisted in the creation of songwriters CD's. Many of my students have performed in various recitals, musicals, ensembles (both children and adult ensembles), music festivals, received merit achievements in Royal School of Music testing, and many college admission successes.
"According to the Association of Psychological Science, intelligence test scores grew higher in children who took lessons in music. In another study, boys between the ages of 6 to 15 who took music lessons scored higher on tests of verbal memory than a control group of students without musical training."
