Zander W.

Nashville, TN

” Everybody should have and play a uke, it’s so simple to carry with you and it is one instrument you can’t play and not laugh” -George Harrison

About Zander

I am a Nashville session musician, sideman and music teacher. I received a Bachelor of Music degree in Commercial Music with a Composition and Arranging Emphasis from Belmont University and I am currently pursuing a Masters in Music at MTSU. Coming from a family of Classical and Jazz musicians, I have been exposed to music my whole life. Over the years I have had the opportunity to play and record with many great bands and artists ranging from Country/Bluegrass to Rock to Jazz. I teach all genres of guitar, bass, banjo ukulele and mandolin.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe the ability to
play an instrument is only part of musicianship. I also strive to teach my students the theory behind the music they learn. I work hard to make sure that my students are doing everything in the easiest way possible. I want to ensure that they are able to progress quickly enough so that they can see the difference. The most rewarding moment as a teacher is when a student points out how hard something once was and how easy it has become.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music store environment. No pets.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I travel with all teaching equipment needed but a music stand is recommended for the lessons and for practicing.

*** Specialties ***
I am a very versatile teacher and player but I am often recommended based on my knowledge of Gypsy Jazz, Swing, bluegrass, country and rock teaching acoustic guitar, electric guitar, banjo, mandolin and ukulele

Kelly H.

Nashville, TN

Ukulele students can learn basics with me. I am especially adept at helping vocalists learn how to play and sing simultaneously. Ukulele is also an excellent starter instrument for young children who would like to play guitar, but don't have the fine motor skills yet--I have experience teaching this type of ukulele in class and lesson settings.

About Kelly

Kelly is an indie singer-songwriter and voice teacher in Nashville, TN. She earned her masters in Commercial Music from Belmont University in May of 2015, and was awarded the Outstanding Graduate Student Award by the faculty. While at Belmont, Kelly performed actively at school and around Nashville, and taught voice lessons and the non-major voice class as a graduate teaching assistant at Belmont. She also earned the honors of being a finalist in the Vanderbilt Star Songwriting Competition and a quarterfinalist in the American Traditions Vocal Competition, and composed music for the musical Th
e Travels, produced off-Broadway as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival in 2014. Her research centered on singer-songwriters and the intimate connection their singing voices have with their songwriting voices, and her findings have given her with new tools for evaluating vocal qualities and allowing these two types of voices to inspire each other.

Elizabeth L.

Lowell, MA

This is a very fun instrument with such unique, beautiful tone! I recommend this to young students who are hoping to play guitar, but they may just have very small hands or bodies... at the age of 4,5,6, even 7 years old, the ukulele is a great alternative to get them on the path to playing a stringed instrument! It's also very easy to transition from uke to guitar.

About Elizabeth

I am a lead guitar player and multi instrumentalist of over 15 years, and would love to teach you everything I know!

I have been studying music for over 20 years, through school and college, on my own, and with private instructors including Toby Walker, Anthony Wellington, and Buddy Charleton. I consider my main instrument to be guitar- I have been playing for about 16 years, and am comfortable in just about any professional situation on my instrument. I play lead guitar, rhythm, etc. We can go over many techniques and subjects to help you become more versatile and well rounded: including
ostinato picking, slide/open tunings, improvisation, and composition.

I also teach pedal steel guitar, I have studied for about 8 years, some of that time was with world renowned steel guitarist, Buddy Charleton.

Each lesson is eagerly tailored to the student's strengths and needs in order to help them learn to the best of their ability, and ultimately, have fun!

As a student of mine, you will come to understand that music is a language, and we want to give you the tools and resources that you need in order to speak and understand that language fluently. Prioritizing your interests and genres that you prefer, we will expand in areas where you seek improvement, as well as incorporating ear training, music theory, and new exercises and techniques specific to your skill level and instrument. Each lesson is tailored to each student's learning style. From reading music and ear training, to writing counterpoint and mastering improvisational techniques, together we will find ways to help you grow as a musician. :)

*** Lesson Details ***
When we schedule our first lesson, I will ask you a few questions about your interests, goals in taking lessons, and your priorities related to music. This way, I can be sure to tailor the lesson to meet your expectations and goals.

Generally, my lessons lean towards feeling laid back, and no pressure... along with positive energy and passion for music!

Curriculum is catered to the student, and based on student goals and priorities. Jazz studies will differ from studying rock n roll, as well as classical, etc. Once we have an introductory lesson, I will be able to review with you the materials, passages, postures, techniques, and music we will be working with. You always are encouraged to have a say in what you want to learn, whether it is your 1st or your 50th lesson.

***Skype Equipment Needed***
Computer, good internet connection, instrument, 1 hour

*** Travel Equipment Liz will provide/student can provide***
guitars, metronome, recording device

*** Specialties ***
I teach beginner, intermediate, and advanced students in genres including jazz, rock, metal, classical, funk, blues, country, pop, and more, on a handful of instruments including lead guitar, rhythm guitar, slide guitar, ukulele, and pedal steel guitar.

I've been taking lessons from teacher Liz for a couple of years now but I've also had the chance to meet and play with all the other teachers as well. These are wonderful people dedicated to helping you discover or improve your inner musician. I've gone from complete beginner to being able to play and lead songs in the group jam sessions under their tutelage. It's been a great journey and I could not have asked for better inspiration and guidance. I'd give then more stars if it was an option.

I have been taking lessons with Liz for about a year and a half. She is an amazing teacher! I am fortunate to have an instructor who knows my interests and goals as it relates to music. I have always had a passion for music, and Liz has made me realize that my passion can only grow further as I am learning how to create music on my own. She is encouraging and patient and knows just when and how to challenge me to reach the next step in my journey. It has been life changing. I can't thank her enough!

Ryan L.

Nashville, TN

I've been playing the ukulele for several years now. I was originally inspired to pick one up on a trip to Hawaii when I was young. The uke has a fun beautiful sound that makes it hard not to smile :) Since picking up my first uke in 2011 I bring one most places I go. I specialize in teaching chords, rhythm, and solo arrangements of popular songs.

About Ryan

I am a musician, music teacher, and active member of the Nashville's ever-growing music scene. My specialties include improvisation, groove, connecting to a band, basic-advanced theory, and basic-advanced technique. I'm looking for students interested in honing their craft and pursuing their passion! My teaching style is student-focused, I like to start off by getting to know my students. On the first day be prepared to answer questions like "What are your goals?" What drew you to music in the first place?" "What are some struggles you have musically?" I let the student's goal drive them and t
he joy felt from overcoming obstacles push them towards brilliance.
