From basic chords and catchy tunes to complex finger picking and advanced techniques. I'll teach you how to effectively and successfully play the guitar at your own pace.

About Alex
I have 15 years experience playing guitar and drums and love nothing more than to share my knowledge of music with students who are eager to learn. My passion for music developed at an early age and has only grown from there. I have had the privilege of learning from excellent and extremely talented teachers. I enjoy playing at local venues and watching my students joyfully succeed.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you have never picked up an instrument or if you just want to fine tune your musical ability, I will gladly meet you wherever you are in your musical journey. As patience is always an important aspect in learning a new instrument, it is also one of my strengths as I teach students the basics or the advanced techniques with guitar or drums. Learn at your own pace and learn to play any song you want!

*** Studio Equipment ***

Takamine ES45C Jasmine Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar, Deadwood Arch-top Electric Guitar, Fender Mustang I V.2 20-watt 1 x 8" DSP Combo Amplifier, Sonor Force 3005 Full Maple Kit.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitars, drums. I am willing to share my equipment if the student does not have their own.

*** Specialties ***
I like to use the Orff method for children, the Suzuki method to encourage and praise the student for their accomplishments, and the MMCP method to give the student the freedom to improvise, create, and investigate his/her own musical talents.

Alex is extremely patient with my son who is 9 years old. He makes it fun for him and uses music that my son loves. He took his time to ask what type of music he would like and is teaching him based on that. After only three lessons my son is really starting to pick up on basic cords. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone that is interested in learning guitar. My son really enjoys his time with him.

Scott is very personable, patient and has a vast skillset across an abundance of instruments. His willingness to not only show the mechanics necessary to become a good guitarist, but ensuring the student has a clear understanding of hand and finger placement is key to musical growth. Our son looks forward to the lesson and is attentive during. This highlights Scott’s ability as a teacher.

We highly recommended him as a teacher.

Marshall is the best instructor of music. He teaches music passionately and teaches exactly what anyone wants/needs. If you have trouble in music theory as well, Marshall would explain step by step and make sure you learn it before he moves on to a new lesson. I highly recommend Marshall because I have learned tons so far.

My lessons are very adaptive and cater to your styles. While I specialize in rock, blues, and jazz, I can also help develop skills in classical and world music.

About Julian
Hi! I'm Julian. While I specialize in guitar, I also know my way around keys, bass, and a drumkit. I've been teaching guitar for about 11 years, and have spent a few years teaching out of music shops. My style is adaptive and fluid to suit a wide range of desires and skill levels, but in addition to guitar technique you can expect to learn a good deal about music theory. I love teaching music more than anything and would rather do nothing else. I come from a blues/rock background and studied jazz guitar and music production at Shenandoah University. If you think we'd be suitable for one another, don't hesitate to contact me!

About Chris C.

Close
Nashville, TN

View Full Profile

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
Are you interested in being able to play lead or rhythm guitar in a band confidently? Want to learn to write songs? Want to learn to just strum along to your favorite records by yourself? I will teach you or your child all of the knowledge and tools needed to do whatever your dream is on your instrument. My aim is to help every student achieve their personal goals on their instrument within the context of a relaxed and patient environment that promotes a love of music!

I achieve this by:

1) Individualizing lesson plans so that each student stays engaged and learns in the style that is best for them as learners.

2) Ensuring that students learn BOTH how to play their instrument as well as the theory behind what they are playing. This creates a more well-rounded musician that is capable of problem solving on their instrument an
d being able to play in a variety of settings.

I have been playing music for over 10 years and teaching private lessons since 2014. My professional performance experience includes solo guitar gigs, rock band shows, musical theatre pit work, dance band playing, plus various gigs in Nashville, around the Eastern United States, and even in Scotland!

I graduated 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, and music history, but before college I was largely a self taught player and am now a professionally performing musician here in Nashville.

Chris is great! I've been trying to learn via Rocksmith for ~2 years, and I'd made some good progress, but I felt like I was missing some things. I started taking lessons with Chris about 3 months ago, and he's been awesome at figuring out where I am and which skill gaps I can fill to make me a better guitarist overall. His lessons are a fun mix of practical application and (a very non-scary, beginner-oriented take on) music theory. He's great at tailoring lessons to what I want to learn and is always really positive and encouraging! I highly recommend him!

About John G.

Close

As a specialist in the theory, performance, and logistics of guitars and stringed instruments, it is of my best and most personal intention to pass on and pay forward my knowledge and experience to my students. By doing so share the opportunities to grow and achieve personal goals, achievements and aspirations in musicianship and guitar-works.

While I offer lessons in theory and technique, I also share the knowledge and experience of basic maintenance and repairs, in order for my students to be comfortable with not just the teacher, but also with their instrument.

About John
I started playing guitar from the time I was 11 years old and started getting paid for my first gigs with a band when I was 16. Shortly after that, I started teaching my first students when I was 17 years old. I was constantly busy, driving from school to peoples houses on weekdays while studying jazz guitar with an instructor, as well as with the paul green school of rock. On weekends I performed with paying gigs in live bands.

I have studied music and guitar at the Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusets, and Music Therapy, Jazz Guitar, and Psychology at Montclair State University/Cali School of Music. I currently continue to further my education, and am learning every day.

From my education background, I have a certification in Master Luthiery from the Summit School of Guitar Building and repair.

Besides working as
a guitar teacher, technician, and performer, I have also worked as an open mic host.

I am currently 26 years old and still performing, teaching, and working as a technician and Luthier on a regular day to day basis.

When teaching, I like to tailor each lesson to that particular student. I take great care in planning and expanding each encounter for both the student's short term and long term development in both life and music. I aim to offer: Music theory and the application of such to the guitar. While most teachers either focus on theory, or learning and playing songs on an instrument, I find it important to be able to use, as an example, applicable theories such as scales and key signatures along with a foundation to the songs we will be learning. These songs can either be of my own or the student's choosing. Essentially, by approaching lessons with a rational knowledge of music along with a hands on experience of playing an instrument, I can create a fun and successful experience for any student.

I believe that learning guitar should be student focused and fun. Each lesson plan is tailored to the individual student based on their goals. I try to make things like theory and exercises both fun and immediately applicable to the music you're playing right now.

I have experience teaching beginners through advanced and ages 5 to 82. In addition to guitar I also teach mandolin, bass, dobro and music theory! Schedule your lesson and let's get you shredding!

About John
I just moved back to the area from Nashville, Tennessee. I have been playing guitar since the age of six (23 years) and I absolutely love teaching!

I teach guitar, mandolin, bass, dobro, music theory and audio engineering. I have a Bachelor of Science from Full Sail University in Recording Arts and am currently working on my 2nd bachelors in Music Composition and Theory so as to obtain my Masters in Music Education.

I am familiar with both playing and teaching a wide variety of styles including rock, blues, bluegrass, classical, traditional Irish, pop, rockabilly, heavy metal, R&B and soul!

Hello! I have been teaching guitar for over 7 years now. Form beginners to advanced students I make it my duty to find the students interests and help them develop their own sound. As a Berklee College of Music graduate I have studied composition and music production, skills that I am happy to teach any student. In addition to teaching guitar my students have the option to learn music theory, as well as recording and mixing original compositions that we develop together in class and as homework assignments (DAWs - Logic & Protools). My specialities include Blues, Classic Rock, Jazz & electronic beat production.

About Farrokh
I have been playing guitar for 11 years now (teaching for 7 years - Acoustic & Electric). As a child I started playing pop music, then I became obsessed with classic rock music (Guns & Roses, Iron Maiden, ACDC, etc). Soon after I started playing a lot of Modern Rock and Metal music. Then in my 20's I started to play blues and jazz as a means to learn advanced concepts in music and fell in love with the guitar all over again. At the age of 21 I went to Berklee College of Music where I studied composition and music production for four years.
I am confident that I have the skills and resources to teach anyone from a beginner to an advanced musician.
