Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Guitar, Upright Bass

About Me

Having been a musician his whole life, and a bassist since the time he was 15 years old, Kyle elected to attend Berklee College of Music on partial scholarship after graduating high school. This allowed him the opportunity to study with the likes of Whit Browne and Anthony Vitti. Summer breaks from school allowed Kyle to complete professional contracts as a working bass player, including playing in Hersheypark’s “Frontier Frenzy” (2010), Holland America Cruiseline’s “The Neptunes” (2011), and Boston’s “The Honeymooners” (2012). After graduating Berklee Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Music Education (December 2012), Kyle decided to move from his childhood home in Connecticut to Nashville, TN to further his career as a bassist and teacher.
Once he arrived in Nashville, he was immediately picked up by the Ashley Buchart Band as their touring bass player. While touring full-‐time with Ashley, he also filled his days “off” by playing gigs with artists such as Stephanie Quayle, Jake Clayton, Nick Cross, and Shannon Selig. He is currently using his extensive professional playing experience as a tool to teach meaningful life and playing lessons to his pupils in the Nashville area!

My main teaching philosophy is to always have the underlying fundamentals in mind. Of course, whenever I start a new subject with my students, it is in an effort to better their playing and move them towards their goals. But while doing so, the fundamentals must always be there. After all, the busiest professional players have the best fundamental technique, precision, and musicality! Overall, though, music makes people happy because it is fun, and I never overlook the importance of that fact!

*** Lesson Details ***
The first thing I like to hear from students is what their goals are while taking lessons. Do you want to become a professional musician? Do you want to be able to play with your friends in a band? Are you looking to perform at your local church with a group of musicians? These student-specific goals will help to drive what we will work on during your lessons. Together, we can reach your goals!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide my own bass/guitar, amplifier, cables, etc. I will also have a pencil and paper, and manuscript paper. I expect the student to have their own amplifier (if necessary) and bass/guitar. They should also have pencils, paper, and manuscript paper.

*** Specialties ***
My lessons center around getting a student prepared to play professionally. I believe that the best way to play professionally is to be as well-rounded as possible. So, my lessons target a wide variety of music styles and technical abilities on the bass/guitar, all while having fun!

About Me

Hello and let me take this opportunity to thank you for taking time to stop by and check out my profile! I also want to encourage you regarding the decision to study music-it is truly a rewarding experience with endless possibilities. I certainly hope the following information answers any questions you have about me, but if you have any other queries please feel free to call or email me.

My Philosophy

I believe in the importance of finding one's purpose as well as recognizing the obligation that's implicit with this discovery. I count myself very fortunate to have found meaning in both music and teaching and even more privileged to observe that the best way to teach and inspire is to be a student oneself. I love to teach-I love seeing my passion for music mirrored in my students. It is this outlook that serves as my model for guiding and mentoring students down this journey in life.

I view a student's well-being and progress not only as my job, but also as the obligation referred to above. It is always my goal to establish a positive learning environment, and by so doing express the importance of disciplined practice while always making it fun! As is stated above, I see myself as a student of music and always will. I am constantly delving into musical literature, whether its history, theory, or psychology of music. This always enables me to bring new things to the table when teaching and helps in making practical applications towards whatever music my students want to study.

My Biography

An accomplished musician, I've been playing both bass and guitar since he the age of fifteen. Soon after picking up these instruments, I fell in love with classical music and decided to make my life's work the exciting task of making good music founded in knowledge and understanding of music theory. It is this outlook on music that has enabled me to develop into an award winning, multi-faceted artist. A songwriter, composer, teacher, and performer, I received a music scholarship to study classical guitar with William Yelverton with no prior education on the instrument. During the course of my studies, I was selected to study with professors and performers of international acclaim, such as faculty from the Julliard School, Peabody Conservatory, and Cleveland Institute of Music. My classical background has aided me in other styles of music, ranging from metal to easy listening. I currently play bass with Sony Artist/Writer Brandon Pruitt (Country artist) and guitar for BMI Artist Ben Sturgell (Jazz/Pop artist) in addition to gigging frequently as a wedding musician. I serve as the Director of Marketing for the International Guitar Institute-a foundation for furthering classical guitar music all over the world. I hold a B.S. in Music Business and a B.M. in Guitar Performance.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is always to teach the reasons why music works.

-Why do the chords to this song sound good together?

-Why does the melody line that the vocalist is singing work?

-What technique is the guitarist doing during that last solo?

The most effective way to accomplish this is to use the songs that students want to learn as a platform for understanding music. Good lessons are much more than just learning songs-I ensure that my students are able to understand how songs are notated in tablature and chord charts within the first month of lessons. Good lessons are about appreciating what is going on within the music. To achieve this, I supplement individually orchestrated lessons with various studies and assignments. For example, if a student wants to study blues lead guitar, we might complement the techniques with classical technical studies to improve facility in the blues style. If a student desires to study compositional aspects, we might look at Rimsky-Korsakov's texts on orchestration or Joe Pass's writings on chord structure. If a student wants to look at singing/songwriting, we would study sight-singing, poetry and song structure. It's my desire to take students where they want to go with music-I love all kinds of good music and am constantly expanding my knowledge in various genres.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own instruments and amps. They need to provide the same as well as notebooks for our lesson material.

*** Specialties ***
Music, Classical Guitar, Guitar, Bass, Music Theory, Mandolin, Banjo.
Mel Bay and Suzuki (not quite fully certified, but have completed "Every Child Can") are the standards I use for children; . Extensive classical training including sight reading and theory/composition. Played in rock bands and jazz combos. Now gigging in Nashville playing guitar, bass, mandolin and banjo with country and pop acts, as well as classical guitar for weddings and dinner parties.

About Me

Re-imagine. Re-define. Re-authenticate.

This is the motto followed by Minnesota born Kyle Wesley; combining classic methods with modern soundscapes in order to stretch genres. Whether through production skills, engineering, or instrumental performances, the goal is always innovation.

Studying under multiple teachers and disciplines, Kyle Wesley's sound has been shaped by his education, stemming from Jonny Lang's teacher Teddy Larsen, to jazz visionaries Nick Fryer and Alan Carter (MSUM), to professional Nashville session guitarist Mike Ihde (Berklee College of Music).

Thanks to proper education and inspiration, Kyle Wesley has performed at many venues of multiple sizes. As small as local jazz clubs, such as Studio 222, unique as the community theater orchestral pit, and as large as opening for bands like OK Go in packed settings. No venue is too large or too small.

Currently Kyle Wesley is paving his way through Nashville and beyond by creating his own methods, re-defining genres, and creating vast soundscapes to fit any situation. Constantly furthering himself creatively and proficiently, Kyle Wesley has showed continuing dedication towards achieving success in production, engineering and musicality.

Lessons with Kyle Wesley can include anything and everything!

About Me

I am a music lover, educator, and songwriter. I have been playing music since I was very young and it has consistently brought joy into my life. I have been teaching since 2007, specifically to share the joy i find in music. I teach because I think everyone is capable of making great music, and I want to help you figure out how.
I grew up in California and have toured extensively throughout the western US. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I earned my degree in Guitar Performance in 3 years. Since then I've been teaching, writing, and playing non stop.

*** Lesson Details ***
My Students get a very individualized experience. I want to help you play the music you love or want to create. We start playing songs as soon as possible, because it provides a context for instrument fundamentals and music theory. I'm not particularly strict, but in order to be successful a student must put forth an earnest effort.
Within a few weeks of starting lessons, my students will be able to play some of their favorite songs, as well as understand the musical concepts the song was written with. Further down the road, my students will have a firm grasp on music theory and will have all the necessary skills to write their own music, be in a band, or simply play music with a deep love and understanding for it.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All Necessary 2 Guitar Amplifiers, Bass Amplifier. Students only need to bring their instrument, materials, and something to write with. Newly added 88 key weighted keyboard for piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano Students must have a piano in house. I can and will provide all other equipment. I prefer for guitar and bass students to have their own amplifiers.
Students are responsible for their own instructional materials.

*** Specialties ***
I love Jazz/Rock/Blues and country. I am classically trained as well. Metal is not my specialty but I CAN teach/play it.

About Me

I am a Nashville session musician, sideman and music teacher.

Coming from a family of Classical and Jazz musicians, I have been exposed to music my whole life. Over the years I have had the opportunity to play and record with many great bands and artists ranging from Country/Bluegrass to Rock to Jazz. I teach all genres of guitar, bass, banjo ukulele and mandolin.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe the ability to play an instrument is only part of musicianship. I also strive to teach my students the theory behind the music they learn. I work hard to make sure that my students are doing everything in the easiest way possible. I want to ensure that they are able to progress quickly enough so that they can see the difference. The most rewarding moment as a teacher is when a student points out how hard something once was and how easy it has become.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music store environment. No pets.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I travel with all teaching equipment needed but a music stand is recommended for the lessons and for practicing.

*** Specialties ***

My lessons focus on creating a foundation of fundamental musicianship while maintaining a fun, positive learning environment and catering to the student's musical interests.

I am fun, laid back and I have a passion for teaching and helping my students reach their full potential!

*** Lesson Details ***
For my piano lessons, I work out of the Alfred series. Lessons focus on building solid fundamental skills so that advanced techniques are easier to master.

Guitar lessons focus on learning chords, strumming patterns, scales, and ear training. I can teach a variety of styles including, rock, pop, country, and blues.

For beginning voice students, I like to work on breath control, posture, and exploring your vocal range. More advanced students work on diction, vowel shapes, and musical phrasing. I am classically trained but I apply fundamental techniques to all genres.
