About Us

Sandy Springs Music has been teaching music to adults and children since 2004. Our dedicated teachers, welcoming environment, and commitment to customer service attract more than 300 students each week.

We understand the uncertainty involved with trying a new hobby – especially when it comes to kids. The right teacher can make or break the experience, so we use the information you provide about your goals and learning style to connect you with a teacher who can best meet your needs. 

In addition, our in-house instrument rental services allow you or your child to try an instrument on a month-to-month basis. You won’t have to spend hundreds purchasing an instrument that might not be the right fit. 

Our primary goal is to inspire a love for music in our students. We hope you will join our community of talented singers, drummers, and strummers.


David Szikman

I grew up in Sandy Springs and began playing guitar when I was just nine years old. My lessons took place at a neighbor’s house and my teacher was often late and cancelled frequently.

After graduating from college, I worked at a popular guitar school where I learned the ins and outs of how to run a music business. During my time there, I was struck by the number of people who came in asking for piano, violin, and other types of music lessons the guitar school didn’t offer.

In 2004, I opened Sandy Springs Music to deliver professional, private music lessons on more than 18 popular instruments. Since opening, the school has expanded to include an instrument rental service and a professional recording studio. Students participate in impressive recitals twice each year and perform at events throughout Atlanta.

Seeing a smiling face when a student masters a small piece of music or song they’ve been working hard on… watching students climb that hill and make it to the other side where they are proud of themselves and they feel the satisfaction that comes with hard work. This is what I love to see!
