Missy M.

Goodlettsville, TN

About Missy

Missy is a multi-talented vocalist and vocal coach experienced in guitar and piano. Since graduating from world-renowned Berklee College of Music in 2003, Missy has performed live with bands (San Diego Indie Music Fest, CBGB's) and as a solo·acoustic artist across the country, as well as teaching private lessons in voice, piano, and guitar. Graduating as a Professional Music Major, Missy focused on Music Business and Songwriting and uses this background·in addition to Music Theory to help·her students to become well-rounded musicians. As a professional musician, Missy has worked as a back-up v
ocalist (Nashville Star/ American Idol Kristin Macnamara, Ashlee Hewitt), acoustic guitarist (Katie Armiger, Cold River Records), demo-singer, and a contracted songwriter (Megatraxx, LA). Missy studied under top-notch vocal coach, Mark Baxter (Aerosmith, Goo Goo Dolls, Journey) and utilizes Baxter's techniques in conjunction with her own to help singers of all levels and styles.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am here to teach you at the pace that works best for you! Everyone is different and everyone likes different styles of music- I try to cater to that as much as possible. I will always set the expectation bar as high as you're willing to go.

For piano, when teaching in books, I normally go for the Faber! For guitar, various renditions of Hal Leonard, and for voice, The Rock and Roll Singer's Survival Manual. If you feel that you're better suited to learn primarily by ear or without the specific training of instruction books, let me know and we can pursue alternatives.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Great room setup for lessons with keyboard and instruments. Parents can sit in on lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Mark Baxter (Steven Tyler, Steve Perry vocal coach) method- geared toward pop/rock/country/blues.

Missy is a great teacher!

Missy has been very helpful, and I started seeing almost immediate improvement in my vocal range, which ultimately led to greater confidence. She is fun to work with and talk to. She not only gives vocal exercises and tricks, but explains the reasons for doing them, how they're going to help. I reccomend her as highly as possible!!!

Great teacher for multiple instruments

This instructor has a solid foundation in music theory which can help students of all skill levels and instrument choice...including voice. I have already benefited from her expertise on both piano and voice as instruments, as well as general music concepts like voice leading, use of scale, tonal variation and dynamic. Very easy to understand and work with. I have no reservations about recommending this instructor.

great local talent

Missy is very professional and provides some interesting pointers, (HeHe), not laughing. I expect to gain much ability from her input. I am a beginner singer, but elderly. I believe Missy will be able to extend my vocal range. I entered a singing contest last year for the first time and this is why I have chosen to get some lessons. See you on the Ryman stage in the latter part of this year.

Jerry S.

Goodlettsville, TN

About Jerry

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, lead
er 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!

Jerry has been great with my 9-year-old daughter. She is a beginner, and he has gone at her pace, and been encouraging without over-praising her. He is playful and friendly, and is consistently on time.

wonderful

Erica has been a great voice teacher for my daughter. My daughter has only been taking lessons since July and she has come a long way & really enjoys Erica & her lessons. Erica encouraged her to sing a solo in the Christmas Recital recently & over time, my daughter, felt confident enough to perform and she performed wonderfully. Erica has also been very flexible at switching our lesson days b/c my daughter is also involved in sports and have had many scheduling conflicts.

Cello
I took cello lessons from Rachel for several years. Although I had played piano as a child, I had not attempted to play a musical instrument for over forty years. Rachel was able to explain the instrument to me, and was very patient and encouraging. Her musical knowledge is extensive and she truly enjoys teaching. I highly recommend her as a teacher of any stringed instrument.
