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.

North Shelby, Guitar Lessons for Everest families by an Everest family!

Hi Deb,

I hope all is well with you and yours. I've something of interest for parents, and I'm hoping you might pass it along. I think the timing is perfect, since Christmas is not too far away....

My son, Brendan Young, 19, and homeschooled for the most part of his life, is a guitar teacher. He remembers how busy homeschool moms are, so has decided to offer in-home lessons. We live in the Meadowbrook area of North Shelby County, and would be convenient to Everest families in the the Oak Mountain or Spain Park school areas, as well as Inverness, Mt. Laurel, Chelsea, Pelham, Alabaster, Montevallo, and Calera.

He's a sophomore at The University of Montevallo and performs on campus a lot. He works as a historical interpreter at The American Village. He's an accomplished musician and composer, was a member of two show choirs at Oak Mountain HS, and has performed with the Red Mountain Theater Company. 

He can be reached at: medstar7@gmail.com and his phone number is 256-506-9191. There is a registration fee of $ 25.00 which will include materials for an 8 week session. He gives 45 minute weekly lessons at $ 25.00 per lesson, with the first four lessons due at the time of enrollment, and the last four due midterm.

That's the basics. References are available.

Thank you for your help,
Jackie Reames
