About Me

A versatile musician and teacher, Nashville-born musician James is dedicated to music through education, performance and personal growth. James has a diverse background in the musical arts. He has served as violinist and principal violist in many orchestras and ensembles. As a vocalist, James has sung in opera, oratorio, master-classes and recitals as a countertenor soloist. He has served as director of the Clarksville Youth Orchestra at Austin Peay State University and currently serves as the Director of Music Ministries for Cloyd's Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Mt. Juliet, TN. He maintains a private studio in Nashville, TN and is on the faculty of the Allegro School of Music.

James has studied with many experts in vocal science and pedagogy and has had the wonderful opportunity to study with Linda Ferrara, D. Lance Respess, Richard Miller, world-class early music expert Nancy Zylstra and twentieth-century vocal music expert Sharon Mabry. He has had masterclasses with the Metropolitan Opera's Bodo Igesz, leading French-diction coach Elvia Pucinelli, vocal pedagogue Richard Miller, and Thomas King, director of the AIMS Gratz program. As a violinist and violist, James has studied with music-education specialist Sara Johnson, Francis Elliot, Nashville Recording-Artist Randall Olson, and concert violinist Stefan Petrescu.

As an educator, he has served on the faculties of the Cumberland Arts Institute, W.O. Smith School of Music, Murfreesboro City School System, School of the Arts at Austin Peay State University and the East Nashville School of Music. He has taught hundreds of students in various formats ranging from one-on-one studio settings to entire youth symphony orchestras. He has been active as an adjudicator, participant, and member of various competitions and education-related conventions. He also maintains membership with various educational organizations such as the American String Teacher’s Association, Music Educator’s National Conference, and Early Music America.

In addition to working with and coaching Grammy award-winning artists, Mr. W's students have auditioned, been selected and have performed in the Tennessee Mid-State and All-State Choir and Orchestra Festivals. His students have also performed in several professional and amateur performances across the Southeast. They have also gone on to major in music earning tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships from prestigious conservatories and colleges across the country. Many of his students have become professional musicians across many genres, educators themselves, or satisfied amateur hobbyists.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher many have described my style as nurturing-but-firm. When I see a student's potential, I make sure that student can attain it. I expect a willingness to learn, a desire to succeed, and a want for excellence. In return, I offer the tools to get you or your child there!

I know that not every student benefits best from only one method. As such, I employ a variety of teaching tools and methods to best suit each student. Strings students can expect to see a little bit of traditional training, a little bit of Suzuki and little bit of contemporary training. Voice students can see some Sieber vocalizes, some Vaccai, classical, jazz, and musical theater training built on an old-world teaching technique. It's all about giving the student the tools to do whatever he/she wants with his/her music of choice!

On your first lesson, I'll go over the materials needed, what you need to work on, and the very basics so you can immediately get to enjoying your new craft. In a few months, you'll be confident making new music or making better music. Within a year, you should be well prepared for one of my studio recitals!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a commercial music teaching studio used solely for the purposes of teaching. In the studio there is a piano, my music library, photo copier, computer, audio equipment, stereo, music stands, standing mirror, and various teaching tools. There is a waiting area for parents, siblings and other visitors.

*** Specialties ***
Voice: All Genres -- child-adult, all levels (beginning through advanced).
Violin: All Styles -- all levels (beginning through advanced).
Viola: All Styles -- all levels (beginning through advanced).
Cello: All Styles -- beginning through intermediate.

Jonah K. Nashville, TN

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Cello, Guitar, Piano, Violin

About Me

Hello! I believe that music is something everyone can do: it can be played alone or in pairs (and trios, quartets,etc). Playing music is extremely rewarding. It's about discovering your potential, and having fun doing it! Having played music for 25 years, and teaching for 12, I have experience as a performer, composer, and producer. I grew up playing cello before switching to guitar, and graduated from New England Conservatory of Music with a BA in jazz performance. Most recently, I moved to Nashville where I am currently training to be a Registered Piano Technician.

*** Lesson Details ***
I offer a wide pallet of musical options. Whether teaching guitar, piano, bass, violin, or cello, I aim to provide a well rounded approach to the performance and understanding of music. Context is everything, so after we cover the basics, we can move in a direction of your liking. Whether you want to sit and compose by yourself, or let loose on stage in front of screaming fans, you will get there! In the first 3 to 6 months, we will cover basic music theory, technique, rhythm, and basic improvisation. After that, we can continue in any (and all) of these subjects, and begin to introduce ear training, the most essential element of your musical education. Overall, I want you to have fun and get what want out of your lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
piano, music stands, guitars, amps, chairs

*** Travel Equipment ***
Car, music stand, staff paper, instrument

*** Specialties ***
Balanced lessons -- playing by ear, learning the staff, composition, improvisation, try to have a little bit of everything with concentrations depending on the level and style of student.

Leandria L. Nashville, TN

Subjects Taught

Violin

About Me

Born in Huntsville Al, Leandria L. received her Bachelors from
Tennessee State University with a Commercial Music Performance Degree, since
then, she has traveled to Europe to play in work shops and concerts, she's had
the opportunity to played for gospel artists Kirk Franklin, Kurt Carr, and Tye
Tribbett, and has just finished up her first year of teaching music in a
classroom. Her most recent teaching experience was Kids On Stage Academy, where
in one week her students learned how to read music and how to play Twinkle
Twinkle Little Star. Her love for the arts keeps her love for teaching
alive.

*** Lesson Details ***
Leandria is a laid back teacher but loves to see her students’ progress with their music. She uses the Suzuki, but believes it’s very important to for her students to learn the basics of the instrument, how to read music and at least 2 songs within the first 3-6 months. In a typical lesson they would start with a scale---saying the
note, saying the finger number, and then saying both--- then they would work on which ever piece is their focus at that time, and then they would bow to each other dismissing the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Their own instruments and music stands.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki, however I think it is extremely important that the student learns how to read. I use my own method to ensure this.

About Me

Hello! I'm a professional violinist in the Nashville, TN area. I have played the violin for over 20 years and have 14 years of teaching experience, both in the classroom and as a private violin and viola teacher. I have a Bachelors in Music from Bowling Green State University and a Masters in Music Education from the University of South Carolina. I greatly enjoy working with young people of all ages and ability levels and have experience teaching students ages 5 through 18. I enjoy working with advanced students and have successfully guided my students through auditions, region and all state orchestra, and solo and ensemble performances. I also greatly enjoy teaching beginners with little or no prior experience with the violin or viola. Learning to play the violin or viola is a skill you can enjoy and benefit from for the rest of your life!

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal as a violin and viola teacher is to help children experience and enjoy music to the fullest level in a safe environment. I challenge my students to reach their full potential while keeping lessons fun and engaging.

I'm a flexible teacher who will work with each student to find the right method for his or her learning needs. Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I offer private violin and viola lessons from my home studio in Nashville. Parking is plentiful with two parking lots available on either side of the building. I have plenty of music stands and comfortable seating for parents and siblings who may wish to sit in on lessons.

*** Specialties ***
My specialties in teaching violin and viola range from beginners with no experience in music to advanced students preparing for college or other important auditions. I have experience teaching students as young as 5 and as old as 18 and will adjust my teaching as needed for a student's age and ability level.

Pearl G. Nashville, TN

Subjects Taught

Arithmetic, Basic Math, Elementary Math, English, History, Music Theory, Piano, Reading, Violin

About Me

Have you always wanted to learn the piano or violin? It’s never too late! I have been playing the piano and violin for 14 years and have been teaching for 2 years. I have a variety of experiences over the years, ranging from instructors who graduated from the Juilliard School of Music, Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles and the Music Conservatory of Paris. I have also performed in piano competitions and have played solo piano with an orchestra. In addition, I was a member of the CSUN youth symphony and my college symphony.
I can teach classical, Broadway, pop and basic jazz from beginner to advanced for both piano and violin. If you need help with music theory, I can also assist you. I studied music theory while learning the piano and took numerous tests that drilled music theory into my brain. Music theory is an essential part of learning to play the violin or piano and even other instruments.

I tailor my lessons uniquely to each of my students. I want my students enjoy the learning process, which can be difficult sometimes. I am always willing to listen and I encourage each one one of my students to keep on going.

*** Lesson Details ***
I give 30 minute, 45 minute or 60 minute lessons. I also do lessons via Skype. You may email me for further information.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my violin and can also provide you with a music stand. I do require my students have their own violin, bow, shoulder rest and rosin.
