Dani E.

Nashville, TN

About Dani

Hi! I'm a singer/songwriter who recently relocated to Nashville from Brooklyn, NY. I just got off the road from singing backing vocals for Miley Cyrus on the Bangerz World Tour and am looking forward to picking up with my students again and hopefully working with some new ones! I've been teaching since 2006 in addition to writing and performing my original music as well as singing backing vocals for various artists such as Amos Lee, Sheryl Crow, The Roots, and more.

*** Lesson Details ***
I hold a B.F.A. in Vocal Performance from The New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music in NYC
and teach beginning, hobbyist singers all the way through to working, professional singers. The most important thing I like to work on with voice students, is helping you to find your own distinct voice and how to use it to the best of it's abilities. That involves developing your technique, vocal health, and an overall familiarity with how your voice functions.

When it comes to teaching piano, I work with beginner students and was mainly teaching children ages 5 and up back in NYC. That's not to say if you're an adult we couldn't work together! I like to work from a workbook of some kind-my students and I were using the 'Bastien Series' and 'Dozen A Day' in addition to other repertoire books.

In addition to playing, some of my students liked to compose original music which I highly encourage and help foster if that's something you desire to do.

I'd love to talk with you more about what you, or your child is looking to achieve through taking piano or voice lessons!

"Awesome" Teacher

Dani taught my 10-year-old daughter piano for 2 years. She supremely professional, thorough, and most importantly fun. My daughter couldn't wait for her weekly lessons. As she says, Dani is "awesome." Dani was able to deftly make the lessons educational but also lively. My daughter still loves to play, practices without being asked, and reads music well. I credit that to Dani's focus, patience and enthusiasm. She always showed up smiling, and to my daughter's delight also had stickers for her lesson book after each class. I cannot recommend her enough, and am sad that we don't live in the same city so my daughter can continue her lessons with her. A wonderful teacher.

Great with Kids - Professional & Reliable!

Dani was our piano teacher in nyc - we miss her so much, Nashville is lucky to have her! We have 2 kids, 8 & 9 years old, and they enjoyed having lessons with Dani very much. Always reliable & professional, Dani has a special way with children. She makes them & their music feel important and she never talks down to them. She also knows how to motivate, encourage & celebrate them. We highly recommend Dani as a piano teacher.

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 Wednesday, Thursday 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!

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.

Brianne A.

Nashville, TN

About Brianne

I am a working artist/songwriter with placements on Nickelodeon, NBC, Rockband, international radio airplay and was featured on "This Sing Off" 2014 Holiday Special with Timothy's Gift (video below). I graduated from Belmont University in 2009 with a BA in Commercial Voice-emphasis in music business. I am currently the co-owner of The Recording Republic here in Nashville, TN where my partner and I write/produce music and help develop artists. I have been teaching voice, piano, theory, performance and songwriting on and off for the past 5 years and love every second of it. I Can't wait to mee
t you and see what goals we can reach together!

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important things I focus on in my lessons are positivity and building confidence. The confidence learned expressing yourself creatively is something that bleeds over into all aspects of life. It's so wonderful watching a kid (or an adult!) gradually come out of their shells during the process.

During the first lesson, I sit down with the student and talk to them about their dreams and goals. That way, I can build a curriculum that perfectly fits their needs. We can learn anything their heart desires-from classical Beethoven to writing their own music! For basic piano I love to use the "Bastien" and "Alfred" basic collections because they are what I grew up on.

Can't wait to meet you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have a weighted keyboard, mic, amp, mirror and video for recording performances.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Mic, amp and video recorder are portable. Student must provide piano for in home visits. And plus, you'll need one to practice!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in beginner classical piano and improvisation, beginner-advanced voice, theory, performance and songwriting of all styles.

Brianne is working with my 11 year old daughter on basic vocal training. Brianne is an excellent instructor and vocalist. She has challenged my daughter and yet maintains a very positive attitude. We are thrilled with the lessons and plan to continue with Brianne.

Highly recommend Brianne!

I started taking piano lessons with Brianne a little over two months ago, and I have seen a huge improvement in my performance and confidence. Brianne is very professional and experienced, and she knows exactly what she's talking about. My favorite thing about the lessons is that she is takes time to get to know her students to find out exactly what their goals are and what they hope to get out of the lessons. I came in with some piano experience and an idea of what I wanted, and she was able to customize my lessons so that they perfectly fit me. Brianne is very encouraging and wants you to succeed. I would definitely recommend taking lessons from her!

I've learned soo much in such a short time

i've always wanted to learn how to play the piano but I never could find the right teacher. Brianne has really helped me find my place as a budding piano player. She is very thorough and makes learning fun. She creates such a calm atmosphere with no judgment and i really enjoy that. Another thing that separates her from the other teachers i've had is that she doesn't teach based on her agenda she teaches me what i want to know. I can't wait fro my next lesson!
