About Christopher

I have been a professional musician for over 13 years and am currently lead guitarist for Starstruck/Sony artist Caroline Kole, having opened for Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton, Martina MCBride and many other great acts.

I started out as so many others did wanting to be a rock star, jumping around my room, guitar in hand, to my favorite artists. When I got serious about music I began my 8 years of classical training at the Pinellas County Center for The Arts and continued through out college at St. Petersburg College. I have a strong background in many styles including Rock/Pop, Indie, Blues, Country, Jazz, Fingerstyle/Classical and Music Theory.

Epic teacher

I've had a few guitar instructors through out my life and Chris was by far the best one I’ve had. I went to him after taking guitar for a couple years with other instructors and he helped me rediscover my love for it. He’s motivating, smart, and all around a great instructor. I’d recommend him to anyone--from beginners to even more advanced guitarists. He really is the best!

just what i needed

Chris was instrumental in me rediscovering my love of guitar through performance. For the band that was assembled we were allowed to pick the songs which made us more motivated as well as making it fun. Chris was excellent at determining your strengths and challenging you. I had never played lead guitar before. Now I expect to be the lead guitarist for the band.

Chris is a man's man.

I took lessons with Chris for probably a year and a half, maybe two years. He was easily one of the greatest teachers I've ever had. He would let me pick the songs I wanted to learn and then, despite his feelings toward the music, would listen intently to the song, figure out everything about how it's played, and then decide the most appropriate way to go about teaching said song according to what he knew I was and wasn't capable of. He always pushed me to do better and if I couldn't get passed a certain part we would work on it until I nailed it. Not to mention he's a really cool dude so there was never a dull moment. I can't recommend him enough.

First off let me say Ben is an excellent guitar player as well as teacher! I have taken lesson before and really had trouble, but working with Ben he almost seemed to make playing too easy! Ben is a super nice guy and great to work with. Whether you are just starting out or looking to take it to the next level I would by far recommend Ben! Thanks Ben!

I am learning how to play and needed Ben to help me figure out what chords a song had in it. Ben was so patient and took the time to write down each one so that I could learn the song and practice it for a performance. He is a spectacular teacher and will help get you where you need to be as a musician.

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 ...

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.

Andrew T. Nashville, TN

I teach foundational guitar, with basics including parts of the guitar, proper technique, first chords, strumming patterns, and reading music. In addition, I incorporate music theory and ear training, as well as whatever musical subjects you are interested in. Being self-taught, my goal is to help guide you through the guitar until you can independently pursue new songs and techniques instead of relying on a teacher to improve musically.

About Andrew

Hi! I am a young Nashville musician with 13 years experience as a pianist, 7 years experience as a guitarist, and a lifetime love of learning and tutoring. Professionally, I have been giving beginner/intermediate piano lessons for 6 years.

I recently moved to the area from Virginia and am looking to rebuild my music tutoring business here in Nashville. I incorporate music theory, performance skills, songwriting, and a variety of musical genres in my lessons to help students learn most efficiently and develop a love for their instrument. References from past students or parents of students are available upon request.

I am a dedicated teacher and will work hard to give you or your child the most cost efficient piano lessons around. Whether you're self taught, have taken lessons ...

Chris S. Nashville, TN

I can teach rock, blues, americana, folk, and classical guitar.

About Chris

I started teaching myself guitar in the mid 1990's and was so taken by the beauty of the guitar that I quickly formed a rock band in high school and covered a lot of classic rock, blues, and americana music. I attended TCU in Fort Worth Texas and played in the jazz ensemble as well earned two degrees (Bachelors in music and Masters in Music) in classical guitar performance. I've also studied in Madrid Spain with the composer and guitarist Jose Luis Merlin and have performed many of his works. I've taught privately for many years. I also tour the country in a duo ("Chris & Lolly") and we perform original singer/songwriter material that is Americana, classic rock, blues, jazz, and soul music. I play and teach both electric and acoustic material. I also have ...

Chris was my first guitar instructor that I feel like I was actually inspired to keep playing. Prior instructors had pushed me to play songs that I never wanted to and I can't say I actually remember any real technique before my lessons with Chris.
I've had lessons from age 7 to my current age of 17 and for 3 or 4 of those years, while Chris was still at TCU in Ft. Worth, he was my teacher. I still have all my notes and sheet music from songs that he introduced me to and songs that I'd wanted to learn at the time. He first introduced me to schools, to new chords, and actually (I don't think he knows he did this) to blues improvisation.
Always kind and extremely enthusiastic and relatable, Chris taught through tab, sheet music and just showing me by sight and ear. Since his moving to Tennessee, I haven't had any lessons other than YouTube and reading tab. I'm fully confident in my ability to now teach myself to further my skills and techniques that Chris first taught me. Chris has a very diverse skill set and can play blues, rock, country and classical extremely well. I would highly recommend Chris as a teacher for beginners because of my experience as a new guitarist learning from him but also for those who are already confident in their abilities and need someone to brush their technique up or inspire them to push their skills further.
I know that if I were still able, I'd be taking lessons from Chris twice a week.
Georgia E. Nashville, TN

I have been teaching guitar for five years.
By the end of their first lesson, the student will be able to play a song off of paper.
I believe in exploration as a road to mastery, encouraging students to think about scales, music theory and technique as tools to communicate.
I teach rock, pop, blues, and ragtime, and use the students' favorite music as a jumping board.
Students are encouraged to write songs, make albums, and perform as a part of my curriculum.

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!
