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 a local Presbyterian Church in Nashville, 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, Metropolitan Opera Singers Daniel Taylor, Jennifer Lane, 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.

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.

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.

Lauren D. Nashville, TN

Ear Training, Fiddle, Violin

About Me

Lauren D began playing the violin at the age of six, starting her studies with the Suzuki method in Aurora, IL. She moved with her family to Vero Beach, FL, in 2007, and studied privately with Linda Spiwak while pursuing other local musical opportunities. In 2008, she won the Yeehaw Junction Fiddle Contest. In 2013, Lauren graduated from Vero Beach High School, after serving as concertmaster of the Vero Beach High School Orchestra for two years. As a dedicated violin student, she won three concerto competitions at VBHS. In addition, Lauren was involved with the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony during her senior year of high school, from whom she received a grant and scholarship. She attended Eastern Music Festival in the summer of 2011, where she worked with virtuosos such as New York Philharmonic concertmaster, Glenn Dicterow. During her time in Vero Beach, Lauren launched and promoted "Random Acts of Music", by busking around town and playing for various businesses and outdoor restaurants within her community. Lauren was the leader of the classical string quartet, ‚¬Ä¬úSeaside Strings‚¬Ä¬Ě her senior year of high school, which regularly performed for weddings and charitable events, and folk fiddle trio, "Elle & the Rootabega Boys". In 2012, after attending the concert of nationally acclaimed violinist, Elmar Oliveira, Lauren was referred by him to study with his violin student, Anna Tsukervanik, who well prepared her for various auditions and performances. Throughout her high school career, she hosted a series of "jams" in her home, teaching students fiddle tunes and allowing for musical interaction outside of the competitive classroom environment. Lauren also worked closely with the Atlantic Classical Orchestra, and assisted in bringing a group of high school orchestra students to concerts, where they would volunteer to feed the musicians and interact with them before the performances.

Lauren is currently a student at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, studying as a Classical Violin Performance major. She is a member of the Belmont Symphony Orchestra, and studies with Juilliard graduate and protege of Dorothy Delay, Elisabeth Small. Lauren aspires to continue in her pursuit of mastering her instrument, and make a career of performing in chamber ensembles. She hopes to continue the legacy of the musical voices before her, bringing her passion for music and performing to cultures around the world.
