I am a classically trained piano teacher in theAtlanta area who's passion is to teach ordinary kids to do something extraordinary with music. The musical success of my students drives my passion for excellence. I am always aspiring to teach the piano in a challenging, yet clear and practical manner.
I maintain a highly successful piano studio of over 50 piano students, driving to their homes inRoswell, Alpharetta, and Marietta. I offer classical piano lessons to students of all ages and levels. Over half of them are homeschoolers who take piano lessons in the morning and early afternoon. Many regularly perform in CMTA (Cherokee Music Teacher's Association) and GMTA (Georgia Music Teacher's Association) piano auditions and the Romantic Piano Competition, some of whom regularly receive first place, honors and awards. Others are not quite at that level and are simply taking piano lessons to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of music. I welcome all enthusiastic students who are eager to learn, grow, thrive and love music.
Even more, is the fact that I teach the piano lessons in your home! No driving, no hassle, no "Atlanta" traffic, no wasting time in busy music stores. As a parent, you are able to do the things you want to while your child is having the piano lesson. And I do it at an extremely affordable price.
If you live in Roswell, Alpharetta or Marietta Area and are looking for a dependable, time-tested piano teacher to come to your house, look nowhere else. I guarantee results that you will not find elsewhere
We are very happy with the training that our daughters have received from Davide. We have seen great progress in a short period of time. We like the way Davide adapts his teaching to the child and what they need as an individual. They enjoy playing the songs that are chosen and the challenge of something other than a standard lesson book that so many other teachers use. One of the complaints that our oldest daughter, Julia, had with her first piano teacher was that she had to learn songs she did not care for by working through a lesson book, one song after another. She loves the way Davide plays several songs for her and asks which one she would like to work on. For our youngest daughter, Jordan, his style of training is helping to improve her concentration. She enjoys his manner and thinks he is funny. Thank you, Davide, for being patience with us and for your expertise in training our daughters for something that will be with them the rest of their lives.
What can I say about David Palmer. I really feel that words can't adequately justify my deepest appreciation for his positive affect on our family. I first found out about Davide when I asked a trusted friend, Cary Thrift, who also rebuilds pianos, for a recommendation with regard to a piano teacher. Let me say that music is everything to my daughter, Rachael. She has both passion and talent. Rachael started playing flute at about the age of 12; and, by 14 was privately taught by members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. She also demonstrated a talent for voice and was working towards playing other instruments like violin, harp and guitar. When she mentioned an interest in piano that prompted me to ask Cary Thrift for the recommendation. Cary's response was simply, "If you want a teacher that will accomplish 6 years of training in just 3 then Davide Palmer is your man". He continued by saying that when he listens to Davide's students the difference is compelling. At 15, I felt that time was the biggest factor; and, I needed a teacher that could exploit her ability as quickly as possible. After a little more than a year, Rachael's progress is more than consistent with Cary Thrift's recommendation. Rachael loves to play and practices all the time. Not once have we, her parents, ask her to practice. Davide as been able to foster her desire to play and play exceedingly well. I have received many comments from phone conversations listening to Rachael playing in the background. Most commonly we hear, "Who is that playing in the background they play beautifully ...". Being a proud parent I say that's Rachael and she has only been playing for a little more than a year. The usual response is, "Well I played years growing up but never sounded like that". The decision to make Davide a valued member of our family was the best decision; and, the results speak for themselves. The music she learns from Davide will benefit her for life and her passion is unabated. I have always felt that passion breeds success. Davide delivers that gift. Davide has my thanks, appreciation and highest recommendation.
