Between the two of us, we teach nine instruments! Sarah teaches violin, viola, cello, piano, and voice. Greg teaches guitar, bass, mandolin, ukulele, piano and voice.
Artistic expression is a passion, and we find it extremely rewarding to share that with a variety of students; any combination of age, experience, and instrument. We are always inspired by students who set a challenge for themselves, and with encouragement and guidance, exceed their own expectations.
What makes Greg such a great teacher is that he sincerely cares that his students learn. His lessons, which cover music theory and technique, are clear and thorough. I highly recommend Greg.
They are very encouraging and informative lessons. Even when I feel like I’m not doing so well the atmosphere makes me feel like I’m doing my best and can do better. These are definitely lessons for those who want to become better musicians!
Very professional, talented and educated.
Sarah is an incredible teacher and person. I’ve had the pleasure of both being her student as a teenager, then teaching alongside her as an adult. She works with all age groups remarkably well with a sunny disposition and effective learning strategies. She has made such a huge positive impact on my life! You’ll love having lessons with her!
New students come from all kinds of musical backgrounds; complete beginners to advanced, sometimes with prior musical experience on another instrument. We welcome the chance to first get to know our students individually, as we develop lessons that match their styles and goals.
We offer a free consultation to get to know you, and answer any questions you may have. We'll then set up a scheduled recurring lesson time.
Sarah: Bachelor of Music in Music Education, Augusta State University (2003). Pk-12 Vocal and Instrumental certified in Georgia and Tennessee. Teaching in public and private classrooms, small group coaching, and private lessons since 2001.
Greg: Bachelor of Music Sound Recording Technology, Duquesne University (2007). Teaching adult and youth classes, and private instruction, since 2003.
Lesson payments are made in advance, on a monthly basis, via Zelle. Make up lessons are granted with at least 24 hours notice of cancellation.
Sarah: I knew I wanted to be a music teacher before I left high school. Getting my music degree is the hardest and most rewarding thing I've ever done. I started teaching straight away, taking on private violin students as I finished my degree. After graduation, I taught in public schools for about 7 years and have taught privately and in small groups ever since.
Greg: I was on my college campus, with my instrument, and was approached about teaching a class there. I developed a syllabus and prepared materials, some of which I still use today.
Find someone you trust and feel a connection to. A good teacher will know the material. A great one will know you.
What is your previous musical experience? What do you hope to add by taking lessons? Are you preparing for an audition or specific performance? Do you have interest in more than one instrument? Are you more interested in performance, theory, pedagogy, song-writing, or any other aspect? What are you looking for in a teacher?
