Gail Burnett has a degree in Cello Performance from Western Michigan University. For 20 years, she has been teaching young children the foundations of music in a developmentally appropriate, educational and fun class setting, performing as a children’s entertainer (Miss Gail and the Jumpin’ Jam Band) in the Atlanta area, speaking on a state and national conference level to Educators on using music effectively in the classroom and teaching private cello and piano lessons. She most enjoys working with beginner-range students, children and adults alike, to help reinforce rhythm and pitch, mechanics and other components that are important to competence….all while making it an enjoyable experience! She is currently co-authoring the music section for a book on brain development.
Gail is also a studio musician, contract musician for worship and other bands and has been a part of ESOEBO, a roots/Americana-charted band, performing regularly at clubs, private events and songwriter festivals including 30A, Wire and Wood and 2016 winner of Eddie Owens Presents open mic shoot out.
In her 20’s, Gail found she had a gift for playing by ear and much of her work now is improv-based. However, she is passionate about helping students to both discover their creativity and learn foundational music knowledge to get them where they want to go on their musical journey! She is the mother of a 23-year-old son and a 21-year-old daughter, who are both songwriters/musicians, with music on Spotify and other platforms. She is a strong believer that while music does have a strong genetic component, everybody is musical and capable of learning!…. its just a matter of helping them discover their best way to learn!
