I highly recommend Logan as a piano teacher. As a beginner in my 40s, I was apprehensive about my ability to learn piano. He puts you at ease with an encouraging approach tailored to the student. He has a deep expertise in music and figures out how the student thinks when learning the instrument. This makes the lesson more productive. I encourage you to get on his calendar.

WOW - you guys read my mind so let me start with saying my teacher Alan is TERRIFIC - and I do mean TERRIFIC - when I first met him I felt so comfortable - his way of teaching is very patient and informative. Alan has a method of teaching that allows you to absorb valuable information while learning a skill. He makes the lessons simple and fun. Alan gives you the opportunity to learn at your own pace and that's wonderful for mature students that wish to learn something new. If I could - I would let everyone know that there is a chance to experience your musical dream - Just take a chance as a matter of fact take a Lesson.

Christine M. Nashville, TN

I can teach beginning bass technique through more advanced students. I center my lessons around the student and what they want to know so each lesson is very individualized.

About Christine

My name is Christine M. I've been playing electric bass for almost 11 years and have experience live and in the studio specifically rock, pop, R&B, soul, and funk. I've been singing and taking private voice lessons for about twelve years. I was classically trained but have been taking contemporary voice lessons for the past four years. I have a BA in Electric Bass Performance from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.

Georgia E. Nashville, TN

I have been teaching bass for a year. I can get a student started and ready for a Rock Band!
Students learn their favorite songs, how to follow a leadsheet, and standard bass lines from jazz to rock.
I build students' confidence so they feel comfortable jumping in and jamming.

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!
