Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off cover school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Lessons are offered every Saturday from 9 AM to 10 AM at Reformed Heritage Presbyterian Church, located at 1401 Montgomery Highway, Birmingham, Alabama 35216. At the beginning of 2006, Pipe Major Ryan Morrison instituted a new Heritage Educational Program for the Bagpipes utilizing his own method of tuition that has most beginner students playing the pipes in less than six months. All new students are required to meet with Ryan to be appointed to a qualified band instructor. The student will then meet once a week for one thirty-minute private lesson with their instructor. All new students must pay a one-time-only $50 enrollment fee. For more information about bagpipes and drum lessons, please email Pipe Major Ryan Morrison.

  • Enterprise Guitar Lessons - Have you ever wanted to learn to play guitar?  Even for like five minutes?  Ever?  I know you have.  My name is Joe Cotten.  I'm a classical, rock and shred-trained guitarist from Panama City.  I've been instructed by such figures as Brian Brown and Johnny Barron, have played every venue from street fairs to private concerts, and once changed flawlessly from a unison bend to an Eddie Van Halen style seventeen-fret harmonic.  There was nobody listening, but I still grinned nonstop for almost eight hours.  Examples of my work are available at Myspace.com/joecotten.  I'm offering weekly lessons in acoustic, electric or bass guitar.  I personally specialize in alternative rock (grunge and noise pop mainly), but I can teach most any style of music.  In addition to guitar technique  also teach musical theory, history, and gear maintenance.  I'm located in Spring Hill, on the Enterprise side of Troy.  Lessons are $10 for a half hour or $20 per hour.  There will be an extra charge if you need me to come to you, because in spite of Sheryl Crow's predictions, gasoline is not yet free.  Contact me at ballad_fen@yahoo.ie for further information.
