About Me

I have been playing guitar, writing songs and studying music for over 18 years. In 2003, I graduated from Boston College with a degree in Music composition and theory. While living in Nashville (2003-2012), I worked with Music Row songwriters, publishers and studio musicians. I have also produced records for independent artists and currently write music for TV, radio and films. I got married in 2012, moved to Fort Worth, TX and shortly thereafter began teaching. In 2014, my wife and I moved back to Middle TN. I love to teach and work with students who want to learn. Basically, I like to make music and have fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I start working with new students by setting goals. It doesn't matter if a student is a complete beginner or already an advanced player. My philosophy is to have fun and make music. Ultimately, my goal is for the student to be able to "jam" with other musicians. 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, songwriting and eventually bluegrass. Music is a vast world and I believe in teaching songs that the student wants to play. So I start by working on songs that are of interest to each individual student.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in my home studio. I utilize the studio to record music for commercials and various other projects. Seating available. No pets. Bass and electric guitar amplifiers, keyboard, ukulele, banjo, fiddle, microphones and assortment of audio equipment for recording.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a guitar tuner and learning materials (i.e. music sheets and learning material). I expect the student to have a guitar and guitar strings for him or her to learn. I also advise an 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.

About Me

Always wanted to learn to play piano? Now is the time!

Hi, my name is Jerry and I am an experienced, patient, gentle teacher, with over 20 years teaching and performing experience. I teach all ages, beginners to more advanced students. Learn to read musical notation, chord symbols and play by ear. Learn your favorite songs.

I have a B.A. in Music Education and plenty of real world experience.
• Private teaching: Scores of students over the last 20 years.
• Public School System: Over 5 years teaching music (K-12) in the Chicago area.
• Performance: Decades as a band member, leader and solo performer. I have worked with Herbie Hancock, Mary Wells, Greg Kihn and Jessie Colin Young, to name a few.
• I am currently performing every Monday, Tuesday and Saturday from 6-9 p.m. at Woody’s Steakhouse in Madison. Stop by and say hello. I’d love to talk with you.

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”. There are a number of authors available and all are designed to help in learning musical notation, theory, vocabulary, technique, etc. I like to add selections from my own library and encourage the use of various web sites that offer free chord charts, lyrics and tutorials on learning a specific song.

Make 2015 the year you finally learn to play! Music is a beautiful mystery waiting to be unraveled. Let’s get started!

About Me

Education Experience:

Private Lessons - 22 years
Public and Magnet Schools - 7 years

I've tutored 100’s of students from ages 4 to 58. Teaching primarily saxophone I've also tutored on Clarinet, Flute, piano, guitar, bass, percussion, tuba, trumpet and voice. I also give instruction in music theory, improvisation, arranging, composition, engraving, music notation, and general studio operations from recording to engineering. I have given lessons privately and under many school and magnet programs from Iowa, Miami and currently the Nashville school systems.

I hold a Degree from the highly accredited University of Miami in Coral Gables Florida, and have also taken courses at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls Iowa in classical performance and education.

Professional Experience:

As a musician I have traveled to and performed in over 51 countries around the world, all the major cities in the US and many famous venues in New York City, London and Rome. I've appeared with such artists as: Michael Brecker, Arturo Sondoval, Jerry Bergonzi, David Sanborn, Bob Mintzer, David Liebman, Joe Lovano, Jamey Aebersold, Bobby Shew, Poncho Sanchez, Duffy Jackson, American Idol's Kimberely Locke, Earth wind and Fire, Lionel Richie, Clarence Clemets, William Shatner, The Miami Heat American Airlines Arena Band, and most recently in Nashville with Steve Martin’s Bluegrass Band.

Student Lesson Details:

Most importantly, I believe music should be fun and music lessons should also be fun. Not only is it important to learn music but also to PLAY IT! I teach a simple and effective system to all students learning music or an instrument for the first time. It is my goal to achieve that students potential in the shortest amount of time and at the highest level.

It is important that all students learn the fundamentals of the language of music however I’m very flexible to each student’s individual needs and desires.

Teacher Equipment and Studio:

The lesson studio is located in the heart of Nashville’s Music Row. It is a professional recording studio and an isolated space offering a noise free environment. The studio is also equipped with a waiting area where parents can view the lesson through a large glass window. There is also a lavatory and free parking.

The studio offers professional recording gear and an 88 weighted key piano. I can also provide all lesson materials and books required for learning and some additional instruments are also available.

**Special services**

For the same price as the lesson time I can also provide instrument repair service. I have many years experience working on saxophones, clarinets, flutes and other instruments dealing with general maintenance, to complete overhaul. Please inquire for more details.

Brianne A. Nashville, TN

Subjects Taught

Audition Prep, Broadway Singing, Classical Piano, Classical Voice, Country Singing, Ear Training, Gospel Singing, Jazz Voice, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Songwriting, Vocal Training

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. And plus, you'll need one to practice!
