The axe experts at Music Masters supervise over an ear-soothing array of top-notch music lessons, melodious instruments, and repair services. Through four 30-minute lessons, shredders of all skill sets perfect their plucks in any style of their choice, practicing amidst air-conditioned rehearsal rooms that ensure face-melting guitar solos don't come to horrifying fruition. Callous-culling homework lessons accompany each lesson, while an annual recital at the Douglass Theatre gives students the chance to unleash their newfound skills with the aid of a professional backing band. Ambitious strummers who sign up for an additional three sets of four lessons (not included with today's Groupon) receive a $100 credit toward any 6-string guitar, 12-string guitar, or Silly String guitar in the store.
Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning Center’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chest. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. Afterschool or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT or to wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
Photographer Jamie Lee, who got her start in sports photography, has been involved in the wedding industry since she was 17. She fell in love with the beauty and romance of weddings, and decided that she wanted to become a professional photographer. She quickly developed her own style, a blend of photojournalism and artistic shots for weddings of all sizes. When she's not snapping wedding, landscape, and nature photos, Jamie captures pictures of interacting families, beaming couples, peacefully sleeping newborn babies, and expecting mothers.
Self-described “photo geek” Stephen Jones first picked up a camera—his dad’s Pentax SLR 35mm—in high school. He enjoyed the hobby, and decided to hone his photography skills at the University of Georgia, where he earned a BFA in photographic design and graduated cum laude. After more than a decade in the newspaper industry, an unexpected layoff gave Jones the jolt he needed to pursue his passion and open his own studio, Studio 331.
Today, the photographer distinguishes himself from the hundreds of others in his field by passing the rigorous exams and portfolio reviews necessary to earn the title of Certified Professional Photographer—an honor that only a small percentage of professional photographers hold. Jones specializes in weddings, where he shoots brides as they primp for their big day and newlyweds as they walk away from the altar amidst steaming showers of rice pilaf. His family shoots capture the emotional bonds between youngsters and their parents; his senior portraits, in contrast, showcase the confidence and potential of soon-to-be graduates.

Technicians skillfully wield a rubber ducky to distract the computer tower and its insides before scrubbing behind its ears, blowing out all dust, and picking the lint out from between the motherboard’s toes. Computer Services Associates can also treat specific computer or printer maladies (standard service $75/hour) within five to seven business days or replace laptop hardware ($100/hour).
