Cameron C. Nashville, TN

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Ukulele

About Me

Cameron is a musician, teacher, and worship leader. He recently moved from Anaheim, CA 9 years ago to achieve a Bachelors Degree in Commercial Music at Belmont University and now resides in Nashville, TN.

Since 2004 I have gigged, recorded, and wrote/ co-wrote music in Nashville, TN. When I graduated in 2008 I went on the road for a couple years with an artist named Dave Hunt when I returned from the road I wasn't quite sure what to do next. I decided that I might enjoy teaching so for the last 4 years I have started small and built up my student base to around 30-35 students a week. I also teach high school music history and music theory at a home school tutorial and enrichment school in town. I simply use the college curriculum that I received and fine tune it for students from all levels of playing (basically like getting a college music lesson for much cheaper!)

"I have a passion and love for finding the best way to teach a new musical idea/technique/song, I am bold and will use the best way to teach you, based on your learning style."

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach multiple styles (jazz, pop, rock, latin, country, bluegrass, and classical) on the instruments listed on my page and love to teach songs, technique, and music theory in my lessons. I also throw in, if asked for, note reading, and ear training by transcription of staff notation and the nashville number system.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated lesson space.
- Amplifiers for electric guitar and bass.
- Electric guitar, 2 Acoustic guitars, Classical Guitar, Ukelele, and Mandolin
- Audio Technica AT4040, PreSonus TubePre, M-Audio Mobile USB DAC, Apple Mac mini, Logic DAW, and M1 Active Alesis Studio Monitors for Audio Recording.
-M-Audio Keystation Pro 88 for Piano playing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring all curriculum. I expect each student to own the respective instrument that they are wanting to learn.

*** Specialties ***
I like to blend a basis of music theory in with my song instruction, and I teach blues, jazz, country, rock, bluegrass, and latin styles of music. Since I have experience as a working musician, having been playing rock music in live settings for about 8 years and also jazz music for 6 years with 4 years of jazz study at Belmont University, I would say I have gathered a wide range of musical styles and specialize in all of them.

P.G. B. Carthage, TN

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Guitar, Music Theory, Songwriting, Ukulele

About Me

I have been playing guitar for 18 years. I studied music and graduated from Boston College with a degree in Music composition and theory. While living in Nashville for 10 years I worked with Music Row songwriters, publishers and studio musicians. I have produced records for independent artists and currently write music for TV, radio and documentary films with Hummingbird Productions. I live with my wife in Fort Worth and love to teach. Basically, I like to make music and have fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher. After six months of guitar lessons with me you will be able to jam with other musicians. My philosophy is to have fun. I picked up the guitar at age thirteen because I was inspired by Nirvana. I was quickly turned on to Jimi Hendrix, which eventually led to me discovering jazz, classical music and songwriting. Music is a vast world and I believe in teaching songs that the student wants to play.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in my music studio (in a loft) or in my living room (the music parlor). The loft studio is used to record music for commercials. Seating available. No pets. Bass and electric guitar amplifiers, keyboard, ukulele, mandolin, fiddle, microphones and assortment of audio equipment for recording.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a guitar tuner and learning materials (books, etc.). If it is electric guitar I can bring a practice amplifier for the lesson. I expect the student to have a guitar and guitar strings for him or her to learn. I also advise a practice amplifier for electric guitar students.

*** Specialties ***
On Guitar: Acoustic & Electric guitar, Rock n' Roll, Blues, Jazz, Improvisation, Merle Travis chicken pickin', slide guitar and music theory. In the world of audio recording, I am well versed in digital recording platforms (DAWs) such as Pro Tools and Logic. I operate Logic from my home studio to write and record music for TV, radio and film.

Logan C. Nashville, TN

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Ukulele

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.

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.

Zander W. Nashville, TN

Subjects Taught

Banjo, Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Recording, Music Theory, Ukulele

About Me

I am a Nashville session musician, sideman and music teacher. I received a Bachelor of Music degree in Commercial Music with a Composition and Arranging Emphasis from Belmont University and I am currently pursuing a Masters in Music at MTSU. 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 ***
I am a very versatile teacher and player but I am often recommended based on my knowledge of Gypsy Jazz, Swing, bluegrass, country and rock teaching acoustic guitar, electric guitar, banjo, mandolin and ukulele
