Your lessons cover whatever material is required to achieve your goals. I always make it my mission to make sure you have a solid foundation that enables you to grow as a musician finding creative ways to explore chords, melody, picking technique as well as knowing songs to play all of which we will begin to learn in your first lesson. We will decide upon a clear path to achieving your musical goals before your first lesson. In my 10+ years as a music teacher and professional musician I have picked up many approaches that will insure you are making the most progress and truly finding your musical voice.

About Calvin
As a teacher, I have worked with of many ages and backgrounds. One of my students, Skylar Stecker, has gone on to become a successful major label recording artist recently becoming the youngest artist to receive a number 1 on the dance billboard charts. I recently had the opportunity to tour with her as her guitarist and pianist.

I have studied, performed and taught music for over 10 years. I hold a B.A. in music from USC. My professional experience as a musician and teacher has led me to many areas of the music business. I've worked as an apprentice to several established film composers and arrangers and have had the opportunity work with Lionel Hampton New York Big Band, Metropole Orchestra, Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, Clayton Brothers, Rachelle Farrell, Michael Buble, and Charles Aznavour. I play guitar, piano, bass, ukulel
e, banjo as well as write music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am extremely patient and firmly believe that anybody can learn to play music.

I try to keep my teaching philosophy simple. We figure out your musical goals and aspirations and carve out a path to achieving them. Along the way I will try to illuminate how the path to attaining your goals and aspirations is best taken at an enjoyable, relaxed pace and with a strong work ethic.

I always prepare for your lessons based on your interests, integrating relevant books and videos, creating handouts tailored to what we are studying in order to maintain clarity.

Learn Country guitar techniques, stylings and they from an accomplished and versatile master.

About Bob
Hi, Bob here...... very much looking forward to meeting you! I've been teaching music since 1980 (Guitar, Bass, Piano and Voice) and I love helping my students play well! Of course we throw jamming and/or composing music into the mix when desired and appropriate. Many of my students perform, and record their music.
I earned my degrees from the Berklee College of Music for Performance and Music Ed. in 1980. I founded my School of Music in 1983, which served as a prep school for Berklee and other schools. We offered private instruction, courses, ensembles and recording courses and producing artists and band's CD's. Many of my former students have become major stars and celebs in music.
I'm a warm, funny, passionate person. I love to teach and my teaching style is a patient, step by step, and custom tailored approach for your individu
al needs and goals. Always an emphasis on FUN! My philosophy as a teacher is to give you the tools and help you develop skills with them so that you can learn and grow musically on your own! I look forward to helping you reach and achieve all your goals!

Amazing enthusiastic teacher!
I have a friend who has been taking lessons from one teacher for 3 years and learned one song! (Not even correctly) But, myself, have been taking lessons with Bob Wolfman for 2-3 months and have learned the grid method, cord construction theory, the musical staff, not to mention 2 whole songs. I would recommend this teacher to anyone willing to learn guitar correctly and productively.

I took lessons with Bob for 8 weeks, and was able to accomplish the things that I initially set out to do: have a better understanding of music theory, start to be able to read music, and to actually be able to play a song or two on the ukulele. Had my schedule not become impossible to work around, I would have continued. As someone who had never played ANY instrument, it's daunting to start at age 38, but this made it easier. I feel that I have the tools to continue to grow on my own. Thank you!

Come study Guitar with me! You will learn solid technique and fundamentals, rhythm skills, soloing, chords, melodies, and gain a deeper understanding of the hows and whys of playing this amazing instrument.

I grew up in Kansas, and I played on the western Canadian country music circuit for years. I've taught 1000's of guitar lessons, and my students always say that studying with me opened up new possibilities for them and helped them get 'over the hump' in their playing. Whether it's advanced fingering strategies, or just starting out, I can help you achieve your dreams.

I have software and hardware tools that will help your home practice, as well as unique methods that will make your practice way more fun!

About Adam
I've been teaching, performing, and writing music for more than 20 years. My students have fun and develop awesome new musical skills and vocabulary.

My number one goal is to help you become an independent, creative music maker. I can help you develop the skills and confidence to make music at any level, and in virtually any genre.

If you take lessons with me, you'll have fun, and you'll make connections to both the hows and whys of music on deep and practical levels.

Don't wait, it's always a good time to start music lessons!

Profile_110091_pi_IMG_3529
Nashville, TN

I am passionate about seeing students grow. I strive to be energetic yet patient when teaching to create a comfortable dynamic in my lessons that encourages excitement about music.
I have been playing guitar for 9 years, and have performed professionally with groups playing styles ranging from jazz, country, rock, blues, funk, and even musical theatre. I am capable of teaching beginners as well as intermediate students.
My lessons encourage a strong knowledge of fundamentals, so that a student can continue to develop years down the road with their acquired understanding of music, but I also am also careful to tailor lesson material according to a student's interests, personality, and natural learning methods.

About Chris
I love the guitar, and so getting to teach students how to play something that is so dear to me is an absolute joy. I have been playing for 9 years and only keep getting more interested i the instrument. I love playing everything from jazz to country, to finger-style, to blues and used to even dabble in some metal. My professional performance experience includes solo guitar gigs, rock band shows, musical theatre pit work, dance band playing, and gigs along the east coast with rising country acts.
I will graduate from Belmont University in the Spring of 2018 with a degree in Commercial Music, so I have had the "conservatory training" in regards to theory, music history, and studying the guitar, but before college I was largely a self taught player and am now a professionally performing musician here in Nashville. That being said, I can
teach all of the "correct" notions of music from my academic background, but I also have real experience regarding what a musician needs to be able to do if they want to become a professional.
I do my best to make lessons relaxed. I don't ever want a student to be nervous for a lesson with me because they did not practice as much as they think they should. While I encourage as much practice as possible, I care more about a student realizing the positive force that music can be in their lives; music doesn't need to be a stressor.
