Mark T.

Nashville, TN

About Mark

Hello!! My name is Mark and I am YOUR teacher! (YOU just don’t know it yet)

Simply put, I love music… every facet of it, in fact! Music has been a huge part of my life! From starting on alto and tenor saxophones as a kid and then learning acoustic and electric guitars, to ripping scorching solos on stage with Chris Cagle and singing background vocals with Reba McEntire, music has always inspired me! Now I hope to inspire you with creative, challenging, and fun lessons!!

Long story short, (too late) ☺ at a young age I dove head first into music, but more importantly, the electric gui
tar! I learned everything about them from how they are constructed to how magnetic pickups make sound come out of an amplifier. Then came the true challenge… I started meeting others like me and before too long I was playing in bands and making music! (which is the ULTIMATE GOAL of playing any instrument when you get down to it)

After many years of self study and private lessons, I took the initiative to move from Texas to Los Angeles, California to go to Musicians Institute’s Guitar program. I honed my chops as I studied with Paul Gilbert, Scott Henderson, George Lynch, Raphael Moreira, and Robben Ford just to name a few. I graduated with honors and received my AA degree in September 2001. (3 days after 9/11) Learning is great, but I NEEDED to make music… so I played in many bands (heavy metal, reggae, pop, country, blues rock) and shared the stage with many amazing musicians along the way including members of Black Label Society, Dakota Moon, Korn, and many others.

I STILL wasn’t satisfied, so I decided to learn how to make commercial music and spent 7 years learning the craft of recording, mixing, and producing music. I went back to school eventually and graduated with honors (again) from LA’s Recording Institute of Technology in 2009. I also received outstanding mix and got my ProTools HD Operators Certifications.

WHERE IS ALL THIS LEADING? Well, I’m glad you asked! ☺ I have the unique ability to help sculpt your goals and tailor your training because of the vast wealth of experience I possess. Notice I didn’t say “knowledge?” I’m still learning! As I hope you will be for the rest of your life! Any truly great musician knows that they’ll never know it all!

My wife and I moved to Nashville in November of 2012 to continue our musical adventures! She’s a touring background singer and songwriter and one of my biggest inspirations…. Hope I can become one of yours!

Can’t wait to meet you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very easy going, friendly, patient guy (And I'm quite funny.. I think) who believes that learning music is built upon a strong relationship between teacher and student. This relationship involves good communication, honesty, open mindedness, and most importantly the desire to LEARN and have FUN. I approach teaching music by knowing and understanding the student's musical goals, and teaching fundamentals, theory, and technique through the style(s) of music that the student wants to learn. For beginners, I tend to teach basic techniques and chords through simple songs to get the student playing music as quickly as possible.

My three promises to you as a student:

1) I guarantee that you will have fun during the time you're with me! I know lessons can be intimidating and stressful, but they have to be fun and that's part of my job.

2) I promise that I will gently push you to be the best you can be but never ask you to do something that I think you won't be able to achieve with practice.

3) I stand behind my education and experiences: I've learned music from the best in the field and you will get nothing less than that from me during a lesson.

My three expectations of you:

1) Come willing to try new and different things in a low pressure environment. I don't bite...I swear.

2) Come prepared to play. Why? If you want to play guitar, you have to play. Relatively simple, right?

3) Come prepared to make mistakes. No lesson is perfect and no lesson should be. Lessons are your opportunity to make mistakes without being judged, so make mistakes, commit to not making the same ones the next time and enjoy and appreciate the praise and feedback you get along the way. Music is a journey that cannot be completed in a few one hour sessions, so I hope and expect that you won't treat it that way.

Now let's make music together!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Bill Nash, PRS, Suhr, Daion, Lance Alonzo Customs, Ovation, and Yamaha guitars. Marshall, Ceriatone, and Mojo amps. NinjaTone, Xotic, CAE, Strymon, Tech 21, Nobels, and Voodoo Labs pedals. Mac Pro, Apogee, Dangerous Audio, Genelec, Sterling Audio, Blue, Shure, Pro Tools 10, Logic Studio 9 recording gear.

*** Specialties ***
I am well versed in rock, blues, & country guitar styles as well as some metal, jazz, reggae,and funk/R&B guitar. I also have extensive curriculum to draw from as the previous curriculum supervisor at Musicians Institute in LA.

Learned and improved my writing

I took songwriting lessons with Mark. I was looking to get to know the form and tools of songwriting to know what people were looking for and to make my songs better. He helped me out so much with music theory as you need that behind all songs and with helping me create some great songs. As i look back at my songs from when I started to now, they have grown and adapted so much for the better. My lyrics flow so much better and I know what people are looking for in the music industry as I have some great songs to show from these lessons. Mark is very smart guy in all music aspects, if your looking for lessons from guitar to songwriting to music theory, I would definitely recommend him. If you are willing to put in the time to learn and get better he will make sure of it!!!

I learned A LOT from Mark!!

Mark is a really knowledgable teacher who cares about your goals and progress. He is also a very patient and laid back person, (which made me feel better about trying new techniques since I was an absolute beginner when we started) and he REALLY took my guitar playing far. Now I understand music theory and how to apply it to my songwriting AND how to improvise over the chord changes in my songs. I'd also have to say he is very humble for how good of a guitar player he really is. You can learn a lot from Mark, and I still use and go through his curriculum. I would definitely recommend him to other students.

Cameron C.

Nashville, TN

About Cameron

Cameron is a musician, teacher, and worship leader. He recently moved from Anaheim, CA 9 years ago to achieve a Bachelors Degree in Commercial Music at Belmont University and now resides in Nashville, TN.

Since 2004 I have gigged, recorded, and wrote/ co-wrote music in Nashville, TN. When I graduated in 2008 I went on the road for a couple years with an artist named Dave Hunt when I returned from the road I wasn't quite sure what to do next. I decided that I might enjoy teaching so for the last 4 years I have started small and built up my student base to around 30-35 students a week. I als
o teach high school music history and music theory at a home school tutorial and enrichment school in town. I simply use the college curriculum that I received and fine tune it for students from all levels of playing (basically like getting a college music lesson for much cheaper!)

"I have a passion and love for finding the best way to teach a new musical idea/technique/song, I am bold and will use the best way to teach you, based on your learning style."

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach multiple styles (jazz, pop, rock, latin, country, bluegrass, and classical) on the instruments listed on my page and love to teach songs, technique, and music theory in my lessons. I also throw in, if asked for, note reading, and ear training by transcription of staff notation and the Nashville number system.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated lesson space.
- Amplifiers for electric guitar and bass.
- Electric guitar, 2 Acoustic guitars, Classical Guitar, Ukulele, and Mandolin
- Audio Technica AT4040, Pre-Sonus TubePre, M-Audio Mobile USB DAC, Apple Mac mini, Logic DAW, and M1 Active Alesis Studio Monitors for Audio Recording.
-M-Audio Keystation Pro 88 for Piano playing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring all curriculum. I expect each student to own the respective instrument that they are wanting to learn.

*** Specialties ***
I like to blend a basis of music theory in with my song instruction, and I teach blues, jazz, country, rock, bluegrass, and latin styles of music. Since I have experience as a working musician, having been playing rock music in live settings for about 8 years and also jazz music for 6 years with 4 years of jazz study at Belmont University, I would say I have gathered a wide range of musical styles and specialize in all of them.

I recently picked up guitar and have just concluded my 7th lesson with Cameron. He's done a great job at making the guitar fun and easy to understand. It is very clear that he is passionate about the instrument, and making sure that his students understand not only how to play certain songs but the theory behind them. It's been great having him as a teacher.

For years, I've wanted to play guitar and had picked up a very basic understanding of how to play along the way. Cameron quickly identified the things I knew and adapted each lesson to where my skill level was at. He was great at incorporating the things I wanted to know with the things I needed to know, and built my lessons from the meager understanding I already had. A great experience, all around. Highly recommended!

Great Success

As a middle-aged adult just getting started learning an instrument, I was concerned about how well I would do. Cameron makes the learning curve easy and with practical homework assignments along the way, immediate feedback is assured. Highly recommended

Zander W.

Nashville, TN

I run a small production studio and specialize using Studio One.

About Zander

I am a Nashville session musician, sideman and music teacher. I received a Bachelor of Music degree in Commercial Music with a Composition and Arranging Emphasis from Belmont University and I am currently pursuing a Masters in Music at MTSU. Coming from a family of Classical and Jazz musicians, I have been exposed to music my whole life. Over the years I have had the opportunity to play and record with many great bands and artists ranging from Country/Bluegrass to Rock to Jazz. I teach all genres of guitar, bass, banjo ukulele and mandolin.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe the ability to
play an instrument is only part of musicianship. I also strive to teach my students the theory behind the music they learn. I work hard to make sure that my students are doing everything in the easiest way possible. I want to ensure that they are able to progress quickly enough so that they can see the difference. The most rewarding moment as a teacher is when a student points out how hard something once was and how easy it has become.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music store environment. No pets.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I travel with all teaching equipment needed but a music stand is recommended for the lessons and for practicing.

*** Specialties ***
I am a very versatile teacher and player but I am often recommended based on my knowledge of Gypsy Jazz, Swing, bluegrass, country and rock teaching acoustic guitar, electric guitar, banjo, mandolin and ukulele

WOW - you guys read my mind so let me start with saying my teacher Alan is TERRIFIC - and I do mean TERRIFIC - when I first met him I felt so comfortable - his way of teaching is very patient and informative. Alan has a method of teaching that allows you to absorb valuable information while learning a skill. He makes the lessons simple and fun. Alan gives you the opportunity to learn at your own pace and that's wonderful for mature students that wish to learn something new. If I could - I would let everyone know that there is a chance to experience your musical dream - Just take a chance as a matter of fact take a Lesson.

Ross R.

Nashville, TN

Even with new technology, recording is always about quality sound using efficient methods. What you record is as important as how you record. Whether it's a tape deck, computer, tablet, or smartphone, the problems are all the same....and I can help you solve them.

About Ross

As a graduate of University of Memphis (Bachelor of Music, composition/percussion, 1983), I have since been a professional musician for over thirty years, performing in 49 out of 50 United States, Canada, U.K., Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore, and on over 100 nationally released recordings. I believe everyone has music inside that needs to be nurtured and shared, so I began teaching contemporary keyboard lessons privately in upstate New York starting in 2010. In 2012 I was invited to be the main keyboard teacher at the Paul Green Rock Academy in Woodstock NY, whose namesake was the original fou
nder of the School of Rock franchise, and within the first year helped to quadruple the student body, while guiding them through learning the demanding music of Yes, Queen, and Frank Zappa. Now returned to Nashville, I am looking forward to teaching--and being inspired by--interested students in the Music City! From piano to organ to the latest in synthesizers and samplers...I can help!
