Very well trained piano teacher. Was able to teach the kids in a meaningful way that hooked them on learning the piano.

Kierstyn had the incredibly unique ability to teach me every single song I wanted to learn while still teaching a range of classical, jazz, and pop fundamentals all along the way. I couldn't recommend her more.

Mike is a gem and true natural when it comes to music education. His passion for music, patience, charismatic personality, and lifelong devotion to learning really shines through during his lessons with my son. In fact, my son enjoyed his weekly music lessons with Mike so much that we booked time for years to come. Finding an instructor like Mike is rare, and I’m excited to have him help grow my son’s musical knowledge in a very accessible way through FaceTime, SO easy! Within a few short lessons my son was already walking around the house singing and playing the guitar like a young troubadour.
Liz
Mike is such a patient, engaging, kind teacher, and has kept my six-year-old son busy via FaceTime one hour/week learning the basics of music. Knowing that my son is engaged and learning with a great teacher has been invaluable to me as a working mom, especially during the current quarantine, but I plan to have my son continue taking lessons because of how much he's learning and enjoying his lessons. Mike engages my son by incorporating subjects that interest him - like Super Mario Bros. - into his lessons. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Acoustic guitar is all about the rhythm! We'll start learning the basic open chords, and a variety of techniques for your strumming hand. Once you get that down, we'll move on to finger-picking so you can really impress your friends...

I wanted to learn some Black Sabbath songs for my dad’s birthday and Peter was extremely helpful instructing me to do so. He was extremely patient with me and my lack of rhythm.

I am a technique-focused teacher insofar as making sure any student of mine is avoiding bad and sometimes unhealthy habits in their playing. I do, however, try to find fun ways to work on technique, with the end goal being playing repertoire that is fun for the student. I believe technical exercises have their place in learning any instrument, but that it's important to spend the majority of your practice time on material which is ultimately enjoyable to play.

I do have certain sets of books I like to follow depending on the student's interests, but I am always happy to tweak the lesson plan to fit the student's needs.
In my current position at Vanderbilt, I teach music technology classes, and I am involved in the occasional performance with other faculty members as a classical guitarist. Outside of that, I run a small mixing studio called Tango Sound Studios. I'm also an avid 3D printing enthusiast and lover of indie sci-fi books.

Hi there! My name is Josh, and I'd love to be your guitar teacher!

In both undergraduate and graduate school, I studied classical composition as a classical gui

Andrea
My son Jake wanted to learn some Boston songs that my husband always plays, and Josh was the perfect teacher for him! Jake had been playing 2 years when we found Josh. I was impressed by his ability to make stuff like technique and scales fun for students. Highly recommend!
Scott
My middle son took an interest in classical guitar and Josh was perfect to get him going. We bought the books recommended by Josh which gave my son the basics. Josh follows the pace of the student and was flexible when teaching from books.
Julie
I wanted to learn more than just the basic chords and Josh was a great teacher! He explains things in a way that's easy to understand. I took guitar lessons when I was little and he helped me to build on what I already knew. He also encouraged me to pick songs I wanted to learn rather than stick to a book. Scheduling was easy and he's really responsive to messages.

"I've taken lessons with Alex for over four months and can honestly say our sessions together have drastically improved my skill set. Alex is great at tailoring each lesson by working through songs I want to learn to play and layering on the underlying themes / theory that is being used within each song. I definitely recommend taking lessons with Alex!"

"I’m a peer of Matt’s. Matt is very knowledgeable about all things guitar. He specializes in heavy metal and harmonic minor lead guitar, but can show you much more than just that. I’ve seen Matt use alternate tunings like Led Zepelin or Rolling Stones do to create something completely different sounding than standard tuning. I substitute for him on occasion, and his students are on a method book and a song to play each week. Students showed me what they were working on, and it appeared Matt wrote out every song the student was interested in week to week. From my experience as a teacher, this helps the student stay motivated to play and continue their practicing/studies if they genuinely like the song they are working on."

"Francesca Valle is more than your average guitar teacher. I never feel like I'm doing her enough justice when I refer to her as "my guitar teacher" because she has honestly been more like a mentor than anything else. I can honestly say that I don't think I would have gotten anywhere with my music if it weren't for her. Because of Francesca, I have grown so much as an artist in songwriting, recording, and performing.

If you are looking for a teacher that knows what they're talking about and how to bring out the best in their students, Francesca is the teacher for you."

"Greg is the kind of teacher that has the skill & ability to set you up with a strong musical foundation to carry the weight of becoming whatever you desire in music.
He does this with a good balance of understanding that not all players want to be the same 80's rock god he trained to be. He knows how to talk/instruct to someone from any age or musical background without being condescending or pretending that he knows better than you as to what sound you want to be able to make.

He's very diverse! This is perhaps, personally, my favorite thing about Greg.
Music is about so much more than technique & theory, it's about style & artistry. This is an understanding & guidance that YouTube could never give me like Greg did.

Though he was the guy who helped me pick out my 1st guitar, he also helped me fill in the other areas in my musicality by instructing me in some bass & drums. This has been invaluable as a worship leader to communicate to all parts of the band. (Seriously, if you pay for lessons, pay a REAL musician like Greg, who can see the gaps you can't)

The only reason he's getting a 4 out of 5 is for the setting in which I was taught.
It began in a hard to find downstairs area of a multiplex building. Then the backroom of a music store where he was constantly needed to step out & assist with other things because the store was a start up business.
It was like 10yrs ago, & the locations & setting have likely changed.
Call me harsh for docking his rating, but I was paying my own way & felt really upset by parts of my lesson time being taking up for other things, or waiting outside a locked building when things should have started on time."
