About Michael

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Studio: Control Room and band room, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my student to have their own guitar if that is their instrument {unless previously arranged} A pencil and staff paper, a bottle of water if they are taking vocal lessons and a wiliness to learn.

*** Specialties ***
When it comes to teaching, I am pretty much no nonsense. Right away we will get started on exercises in technique, key signature changes, chord voicing, arpegiation and scales. My goal is to equip the student with a full arsenal to be able to play pieces as well as hear and improvise in a solo or band situation. Another goal is to make the lesson less like work and more like fun. I cover at least 6 different styles of playing. As a guitarist ...

Cameron C. Nashville, TN

About Cameron

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 ...

For years, I've wanted to play guitar and had picked up a very basic understanding of how to play along the way. Cameron quickly identified the things I knew and adapted each lesson to where my skill level was at. He was great at incorporating the things I wanted to know with the things I needed to know, and built my lessons from the meager understanding I already had. A great experience, all around. Highly recommended!

Great Success

As a middle-aged adult just getting started learning an instrument, I was concerned about how well I would do. Cameron makes the learning curve easy and with practical homework assignments along the way, immediate feedback is assured. Highly recommended
David F. Nashville, TN

I majored in classical guitar in college, 1975-1977
and i continue to work on pieces like the Rodrigo guitar conciertos and several other pieces

About David

Since beginning his teaching career in 1974 David has taught 7000 people how to play guitar! Some aspiring only to play at home for fun and others to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.

David F. has also taught advanced guitar and music theory to several professional musicians who already play other instruments fluently including Oscar nominee Scott Rogness, who co-wrote and performed the songs featured in the movie That Thing You Do. Scott had this to say about his study with David:

"I studied with David for about 8 months. Although proficient on keyboards, a singer and songwriter; I had never learned the guitar. I knew a lot about the guitar by osmosis, but technically was green. David let me look at the guitar in a whole new way, using infinite variations on ...

For those players serious about music, who are willing to devote the time and attention required to improve, and who appreciate not only learning to play guitar but the theory and history behind the music, David is your man. I have taken lessons in the past, usually consisting of a teacher asking what riffs I wanted to work on that day. Sound familiar? Not David. Within the first two weeks, he has me focused on plucking the strings with more feel, using a pick and fingers simultaneously with my right hand, practicing scales to the tempo of a metronome while using the forwards and backwards technique, etc. He has convinced me that I can become as accomplished a player as I put my mind and heart to. His mantra is to work towards playing at the speed of thought, which, for the first time in my life, looks to be a possibility with time. Thank you, David.

Just had my first lesson with David. Gave a wealth of info now it's up to me but with his approach I know it will be all good. Have had other teachers but David is not only an accomplished player he is also is able to instruct and teach. Will write again after a few more lessons.

I begin learning the guitar with David I’m well on my way….

I purchased my first guitar about three months before starting lessons with David. I tried self-study through several books and quickly realized that I needed to find an instructor if I was serious about learning. I was hesitant about trying lessons online but quickly realized that there is almost no difference between face to face and online lessons. David can clearly see and hear what I’m playing. The commute downstairs to my computer is also an advantage.

I have several friends who play at various levels and I questioned them about how they learned. Most of them who didn’t take music in school (high school or college) don’t read music and rely on TAB. After eight months of lessons I have a solid foundation on sight reading, bar cords, theory, and understanding the relationships of the notes and cords on the fret board. I’m able to pick out a song from a songbook and I have the tools to start learning the song myself. This is due to learning the fundamentals correctly the first time…

My experience learning with David has been very good. He keeps me motivated, I’m learning songs that I enjoy, and I have an expert leading me in, what I feel is, a good direction. Of course I need to do my part and practice, but that’s part of the fun…right?

Epic teacher

I've had a few guitar instructors through out my life and Chris was by far the best one I’ve had. I went to him after taking guitar for a couple years with other instructors and he helped me rediscover my love for it. He’s motivating, smart, and all around a great instructor. I’d recommend him to anyone--from beginners to even more advanced guitarists. He really is the best!

just what i needed

Chris was instrumental in me rediscovering my love of guitar through performance. For the band that was assembled we were allowed to pick the songs which made us more motivated as well as making it fun. Chris was excellent at determining your strengths and challenging you. I had never played lead guitar before. Now I expect to be the lead guitarist for the band.

Chris is a man's man.

I took lessons with Chris for probably a year and a half, maybe two years. He was easily one of the greatest teachers I've ever had. He would let me pick the songs I wanted to learn and then, despite his feelings toward the music, would listen intently to the song, figure out everything about how it's played, and then decide the most appropriate way to go about teaching said song according to what he knew I was and wasn't capable of. He always pushed me to do better and if I couldn't get passed a certain part we would work on it until I nailed it. Not to mention he's a really cool dude so there was never a dull moment. I can't recommend him enough.
