Who is HOMESTYLE MUSIC?

Homestyle Music was established in Acworth, Georgia beginning in 2007.  In 2009, it began to expand into neighboring cities and 14 teachers were hired, and contracted, by its owner Katie Hester to teach professional music lessons including: guitar lessons, drum lessons, piano lessons, and string lessons.  After becoming a proud parent in recent years, Mrs. Hester decided to only offer lessons to her own personal students, but she still makes referrals to other trusted professionals as needed. 

Katie Hester provides excellent lessons in piano, guitar, or woodwinds for individual students at their homes in Acworth, Kennesaw, Woodstock, Dallas, Marietta, or Powder Springs, Georgia.  She also offers lessons at her studio in Acworth.  She specializes in offering music instruction to home-schooled students during typical daytime school hours, but does schedule afternoon lessons as well.  Homestyle Music was developed out of Katie's passion for sharing music with others.  She believes music enriches a person's life beyond measure. The following is a list of benefits to studying music:

Concentration: The study of music requires a student to multitask as focus on reading, muscle coordination, timing, and aesthetics all at the same time. 

Muscle Development:  The study of an instrument, or of voice, requires the use of finely tuned muscles. Learning to play a musical instrument helps develop eye-hand coordination.

Social Interaction:   Social opportunities are plenty as students share music with other musicians and the general public.
 
Accomplishment: Learning music is a journey and is rewarding when students realize how they have grown.  Homestyle Music  celebrates bringing students to a place of success every step along the way.

Creativity and Self-Expression:  Homestyle Music believes that people are made to be creative. The studies of piano, guitar, voice, or any musical instrument helps to give place to creative abilities and develops students to be the best they can.
