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. 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‚¬Ä¬ôs Association, Music Educator‚¬Ä¬ôs 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.

Leena K. La Vergne, TN

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

I began singing when I was three years old, started piano lessons at age ten and have been singing, playing, writing and teaching for more than ten years. I graduated from California State University, Northridge with a Bachelor's degree in Music Industry Studies. While my focus was vocal performance, I never stopped playing, writing or listening to music. I continued my own studies of piano, world music, music theory and music history. I began teaching private piano lessons in 2002 and added voice lessons to my services several years later.

During my studies at Cal State, I worked on two projects for the CTVA (Cinema and Television Arts) department. One was as the music coordinator for a video documentary and the other was recording my first music video. Since then, I have recorded two CDs of original music and made a second music video for one of my songs. Interspersed between all of these projects was teaching private lessons, writing, gigging and taking side jobs, including one as the musical director for a Nashville area performance studio and one as a voice teacher at a Nashville area dance studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that music education is crucial to education in general. While I think that music is a form of expression, I also believe that practice and devotion is important. I expect my students to practice and hold them accountable. At the same time, I am patient and encouraging and do not use negative verbiage during my lessons. I want my students to realize their full potential and strive to be the best they can be!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have an 88 key digital keyboard that I use for all voice and piano lessons. I also have a large selection of music but may require my students to purchase additional items as needed.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not provide any equipment for lessons done at the student's home. I expect them to have the instruments/books needed for the lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I also do private music tutoring in classical, jazz and world music

Jerry S. Goodlettsville, TN

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting

About Me

Always wanted to learn to play piano? Now is the time! My name is Jerry and I am an experienced, patient, gentle teacher, with over 20 years teaching and performing experience. I teach all ages, from beginners to advanced students. Learn to read or play by ear. Just want to learn a few of your favorite songs...we can do that too.

I have a B.A. in Music Education and plenty of real world experience:

Private teaching: Scores of students over the last twenty years.
Performing: Decades as band member, leader and solo performances. I have worked with Herbie Hancock, Mary Wells, Greg Kihn and Jessie Colin Young, to name a few.
Public school system: Over five years teaching music in Cook County (Chicago area), IL.

You may also hear me play every Monday and Saturday from 6-9 p.m. at Woody's Steakhouse in Madison. Come enjoy some great food and music!

Make 2014 the year you finally learn to play, it can be fun and rewarding.

*** Lesson Details ***
Self motivation is your greatest ally; I want to help you become motivated and fall in love with the piano.

Beginners can expect to work from method books. The basics are very important and do not need to be tedious‚¬Ä¶and every piano player/musician goes through this process. Once the basics are learned, we can explore any music you like.

We will begin to explore harmony and music theory; build a chord vocabulary; learn to read a "lead sheet" and even learn to play by ear, using theory to anticipate certain patterns in the music‚¬Ä¶there are always patterns! If you are a songwriter, I can help you with that as well.

Music is a mystery waiting to be unraveled. Let's get started!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room with Yamaha moX8 digital piano, recording equipment, and seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
For young beginners I like to use a method book such as Bastien or Alfred. For students with a certain reading proficiency, I generally choose material from my personal library. If a student has a specific request, whether written material or something to learn by ear, I encourage it. I teach any style. I especially like jazz, but never force it on anyone.
I'm always trying to find what my student is interested in. Often they don't know, but when they do...I like to go with that.

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.

Subjects Taught

Basic Math, Elementary Math, English, History, Language, Music Theory, Phonics, Piano, Pre Algebra, Reading, Science, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

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 in Florida, California, and Tennessee between the years of 1983 to 1997. I taught private students after school in my classroom while I was a public school teacher, and from my home since 1997. My post-graduate continuing professional education includes Tennessee Arts Academy at Belmont University, Kodaly Pedagogy and Solfege Level 1 (vocal teaching techniques, do-re-mi, ear training), Orff-Schulwerk Music for Children Level 1 certification, Yamaha M.I.E. (Music In Education) Piano Lab certification. My professionalism and expertise are at your service. I will work together with you to insure an enjoyable and informative learning experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson in my studio would begin with a brief question/answer time with the student to learn how their week has gone, and how their music practice is progressing.

For PIANO LESSONS we begin with Technique including scales and dexterity exercises, then we play from the Lesson book and a Recital selection. I typically let the student play through the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to play the piece again. After that we go over the Theory assignments, and do Ear Training exercises. I am comfortable teaching from a variety of different methods courses. The methods course is chosen according to the student's interest. I never require a piano student to continue using books that are not inspiring. There so many methods courses available, that a student may always be able to have methods books they LOVE.

In my SINGING LESSONS we also begin with a recap of the student's week. Then we continue with Warm Up exercises to prepare the student's voice for the lesson. Then we study Sight Singing and Solfege Singing (do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do) to increase the student's listening skills. After that the student sings their selections. Like I do in Piano lessons, I listen to the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to sing the piece again. I am comfortable teaching many styles of vocal music including classical, Broadway, pop, rock, and Christian.

For MUSIC THEORY lessons, the study material is chosen according to the student's interest and age. Topics include notation, chord structure, chord progression, melodic structure, and harmony. I also incorporate Music Listening in the Music Theory lesson in order to learn from the masters in many styles of music. My Music Theory students will also have the opportunity to develop composition and songwriting skills if they desire.

My teaching style is structured and friendly, keeping the student's goals and interests at the forefront. I enjoy motivating students to reach their highest potential.
After 3 to 6 months in my studio my students will see improvement in their musical technique, ear training, music reading, notation, and knowledge. They will be preparing recital pieces for an upcoming performance. I provide two recital opportunities a year: in December, and in May. Most importantly, the student's love and appreciation of music will be growing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room: piano near front entryway, couch, loveseat, over-sized chair, dining room table, open space, end table with chair, parents can sit in on lesson.

About Me

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!

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important things I focus on in my lessons are positivity and building confidence. The confidence learned expressing yourself creatively is something that bleeds over into all aspects of life. It's so wonderful watching a kid (or an adult!) gradually come out of their shells during the process.

During the first lesson, I sit down with the student and talk to them about their dreams and goals. That way, I can build a curriculum that perfectly fits their needs. We can learn anything their heart desires-from classical Beethoven to writing their own music! For basic piano I love to use the "Bastien" and "Alfred" basic collections because they are what I grew up on.

Can't wait to meet you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have a weighted keyboard, mic, amp, mirror and video for recording performances. I also have a two camera shoot for online lessons... All vocal students are provided with an audio recording of the performances during the lesson and a water. Mic, amp and video recorder are portable. Student must provide piano for in home visits.
