Dani E. Nashville, TN

Typically, we'll work from an instructional book such as the Bastien series to help build basic theory and technique and then start adding in songs of your choice to build your repertoire. We can also work on any original material you might be interested in creating.

About Dani

Hi! I'm a singer/songwriter who recently relocated to Nashville from Brooklyn, NY. I just got off the road from singing backing vocals for Miley Cyrus on the Bangerz World Tour and am looking forward to picking up with my students again and hopefully working with some new ones! I've been teaching since 2006 in addition to writing and performing my original music as well as singing backing vocals for various artists such as Amos Lee, Sheryl Crow, The Roots, and more.

*** Lesson Details ***
I hold a B.F.A. in Vocal Performance from The New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music in NYC and teach beginning, hobbyist singers all the way through to working, professional singers. The most important thing I like to work on with voice students, is helping you to find your ...

"Awesome" Teacher

Dani taught my 10-year-old daughter piano for 2 years. She supremely professional, thorough, and most importantly fun. My daughter couldn't wait for her weekly lessons. As she says, Dani is "awesome." Dani was able to deftly make the lessons educational but also lively. My daughter still loves to play, practices without being asked, and reads music well. I credit that to Dani's focus, patience and enthusiasm. She always showed up smiling, and to my daughter's delight also had stickers for her lesson book after each class. I cannot recommend her enough, and am sad that we don't live in the same city so my daughter can continue her lessons with her. A wonderful teacher.

Great with Kids - Professional & Reliable!

Dani was our piano teacher in nyc - we miss her so much, Nashville is lucky to have her! We have 2 kids, 8 & 9 years old, and they enjoyed having lessons with Dani very much. Always reliable & professional, Dani has a special way with children. She makes them & their music feel important and she never talks down to them. She also knows how to motivate, encourage & celebrate them. We highly recommend Dani as a piano 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!

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 ...

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.
Brianne A. Nashville, TN

My first lesson with a student is a meet and greet where I get to pick their brain about passions, interests and goals. From there, I put together a custom lesson plan to make sure they succeed and keep interest in whatever those goals may be.

But most importantly, I take very seriously the role of instilling confidence in my students. Creative confidence spills over into all pools of life and is not only something I recognize, but take pride in being involved with.

Can't wait to meet you and start the journey!

About Brianne

I am a working artist/songwriter with placements on Nickelodeon, NBC, Rockband and international radio airplay. I graduated from Belmont University in 2009 with a BA in Commercial Voice-emphasis in music business. I am currently the co-owner of The Recording Republic here in Nashville, TN where my partner and I write/produce music and help develop artists. I have been teaching voice, piano, theory, performance and songwriting on and off for the past 5 years and love every second of it. I Can't wait to meet you and see what goals we can reach together!

Highly recommend Brianne!

I started taking piano lessons with Brianne a little over two months ago, and I have seen a huge improvement in my performance and confidence. Brianne is very professional and experienced, and she knows exactly what she's talking about. My favorite thing about the lessons is that she is takes time to get to know her students to find out exactly what their goals are and what they hope to get out of the lessons. I came in with some piano experience and an idea of what I wanted, and she was able to customize my lessons so that they perfectly fit me. Brianne is very encouraging and wants you to succeed. I would definitely recommend taking lessons from her!

I've learned soo much in such a short time

i've always wanted to learn how to play the piano but I never could find the right teacher. Brianne has really helped me find my place as a budding piano player. She is very thorough and makes learning fun. She creates such a calm atmosphere with no judgment and i really enjoy that. Another thing that separates her from the other teachers i've had is that she doesn't teach based on her agenda she teaches me what i want to know. I can't wait fro my next lesson!
Adam G. Hermitage, TN

I have been teaching piano for ten years. I focus mainly on the development of the students love of music in order to make them a strong instrumentalist. I have taken classical lessons since I was in second grade on piano but I have also played piano in many rock and roll and jazz settings. I look forward to seeing what inspires you and how we can get to a place where you have more fun and technique to play piano.
