I've known Matt for a long time and in addition to his extraordinary skills as a bass player, I've come to know him as a fantastic teacher. He has led many clinics at colleges around the country, taught privately to individual students, and attended one of the best universities in the country for jazz performance (UNT). That being said, he is so much more than a jazz bass player. He plays regularly with bands ranging from electro-pop to folk to salsa on electric bass and upright bass. He has one of the most creative musical minds I've ever had the pleasure of working with and is patient and compassionate both with his band members and students. I highly recommend Matt as your future bass teacher!

Well worth the time and money

Dave was able to meet me where I was and move me toward the goals I had. As as an adult learner, I went in with zero experience with the saxophone but a clear picture of what I wanted to play and somewhat how I wanted to sound. Dave has a great set-up where we have privacy to make noise (sax's aren't known for being quiet). He's able to pluck things out on the piano quickly or to pull something up on the computer or just play. I went from starting out, to wanting to play a few songs, to improvising. Dave has been very helpful and ultimately keeps me improving and moving forward. I've taken other lessons on other instruments, but I will say this is one of the better teachers I have had. He listens well and is able to articulate what he wants you to do --- not trying to be a guru, but more of a guide that keeps you on track.

Dave is the best teacher. Hands down!

After having some rough experiences with past teachers in my life, I came to Dave with a very specific goal in mind. To learn piano so I may graduate college. I had a lot to learn very quickly! I am an older student which made this task a bit intimidating. He is very patient and is able to explain things in a way I understand. He has a very light and nice personality which makes me want to focus and try hard. He definitely pushes me, but in a way that isn't scary.

Dave is the best. He is an incredible teacher and a really nice guy. His studio is really neat and professional which matches his personality. Take lessons with him. You'll be glad you did!

Jerry has been great with my 9-year-old daughter. She is a beginner, and he has gone at her pace, and been encouraging without over-praising her. He is playful and friendly, and is consistently on time.

I am so glad to be able to leave a comment about Jerry S. I can't believe that we could be this blessed to find a teacher such as Jerry S.! we have been more than impressed. Thanks TakeLessons! You guys matched us up perfect! He has been on time for every lesson and gets right into the lesson with a joyful smile, making the girls feel very comfortable while they learn. Jerry is an inspiration to both my girls. He is an incredible teacher! I took lessons for 8 years and never looked forward to practicing or seeing my piano teacher like my girls do with Jerry. This means a lot to me as a parent who wants to see their children actually enjoy learning an instrument, and because of him....they really enjoy it more than they even did before. Getting them to practice now is not even a problem. This alone says a lot. He is very patient and kind. Best of all....Jerry is making piano fun for my girls while not missing any of the fundamentals of the piano. Oh! Even though he is humble...The man can play! You should hear him! Wow!Way to go TakeLessons! Thank you very much!

Julie L. Hermitage, TN

About Julie

I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (4 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise in teaching Vocal and Piano music, my knowledge of Music Theory, and my encouraging teaching style. I have been involved in making music since I was a young child, and I have been teaching private students since I was a Music major at the University of Florida in 1982 when a fellow college student asked me to teach her voice lessons. I have a Music Education degree from the University of Florida; my major instrument was Voice, my minor was Piano. I taught as a public school music educator in ...

Julie is the BEST!! I took lessons as a child, but had not taken any lessons in over 10 years when I first began lessons with Julie. Almost immediately she was able to help me recall everything I had learned when I was younger. Very knowledgeable and encouraging, makes each lesson a joy! Highly recommended for those who are serious about learning the piano (or anything else I'm sure!).

Great Motavator!!

Julie is our first experience with a piano teacher. She has been instructing my somewhat shy 6 year old for about 9 months now. She is amazing with my daughter. She is very encouraging and stays right on her level while pushing her to expand her knowledge in music. I couldn't be more pleased in our first experience. Julie even had my daughter performing in front of an audience just 4 months after her first lesson. A memory my child will have forever.
Matthew D. Nashville, TN

About Matthew

An Ohio native, I began playing guitar when I was 6 and came from a musical family. I am an active performer, producer, and composer. My goal as a teacher is to foster a lifelong interest in music and give my students the tools they need to develop their art. If you want to get the most out of your practice time and build a solid foundation on which you can continually develop, a great teacher can accelerate your development and get you where you want to be. If you are a beginner or even a seasoned player looking to advance your playing, knowing which direction to go and how to continue developing can be a challenge. Methods are many, principals are few. Understanding how music works will allow you to become your own teacher in the long run and that is my goal with all of my students.

So far I've had a few lessons with Matt and not only is he a great instructor, but also a great guy who is eager to engage with his students beyond just learning to play guitar. I came into the lessons with absolutely no knowledge of how to actually play – I was a fan and that was it – but I feel comfortable playing chords and scales after a few lessons. I look forward to my future lessons with Matt and definitely recommend him as a teacher.

About Georgia

Hi! My name is Georgia E. I have been teaching private lessons for the past five years in Boston, and have recently relocated to Nashville. I went to Berklee College of Music with a degree in Songwriting and teach voice, guitar, bass, music theory, and songwriting. I have enjoyed watching my young students go from beginners to advanced musicians in their age groups, write songs, and thrive in performances. I believe in exploration as a road to mastery, and as such, much of my lessons revolve around age and skill appropriate projects that I coach the students through. These have included all-original albums, recordings of covers, recitals, and student-planned concerts. My approach is to empower young students, and show them the joy and focus that goes into making music.

Georgia is passionate about music and her enthusiasm and energy are displayed at every lesson. She entices the children to explore a variety of music styles and encourages them to be creative. What I mostly love about Georgia is her natural ability to connect with the children. She not only teaches the fundamental techniques required, but encourages them to explore their own interest and style while developing their knowledge base of music theory.

I witnessed my children mature as little musicians and thrive under her direction. I have seen them flourish and become confident with every piece they play. I can’t thank Georgia enough for the great work she has done. I have seen my youngest daughter go from never having picked up a guitar to now singing and playing everything from Katie Perry to Elvis Presley, and Gypsy Jazz is her new found passion!
