Gabriel H.

Clarksville, TN

This is a Preschool class offered. I have taught this Rhythm and Pulse class to children as young as 1 year old and I teach up through 6 years old depending on the child.
What I work on is helping the student build Rhythm, and Pulse (or Tempo) For this age group the children are getting hands-on play with up to 15 different instruments. Each lesson reinforces each other to help the student develop what are called "Preplaying" Skills.
These skills include but are not limited to:
Listening Skills
Eye-Hand Coordination
Speaking Skills
Muscle Memory
Fine Motor Skills
Gross Motor Skills
High/Low
Fast/Slow
Loud/Soft
Patterns
And SO MUCH MORE.

About Gabriel

My name is Gabriel. I have been playing and teaching for over 25 years both piano and Voice. As a Music Major and Christian Education major at Johnson Bible College I not only learned the skills needed to be a musician but also how to teach what I had learned.

As a Student you will find that learning to play and sing can be fun and easy. I always make my lessons enjoyable and I add humor, games and other instruments to enhance your learning experience.

I am both a musician and song writer. I have a great time teaching and work great with both Children and adults. I love it when
working with people and that "Light" comes on when they realize "I really learned something." I live for those moments.

I have worked with students of all levels. I even work with children with special needs. So no matter what you would like to do with your music, play for enjoyment, compose music, sing, for church or professionally I can help you get there.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lessons I teach are fun and educational. No matter who you are I am able to teach you.
I do not teach traditional piano. Why? Because most people are unable to play this style due to issues with eye hand coordination. The Method I teach "Chord Percussion Style" teaches a strong foundation in piano basics backed by a Strong Music Theory base. I have yet to find anyone who has not been able to learn with this method.
For voice I teach natural voice as opposed to Head Voice. This allows the student to learn to sing in a solo or group setting. You will be amazed at the difference a few adjustments can make in your voice. So as you continue your lessons with us you will see constant improvement.
On top of Voice and Piano I can help you learn to write your own music. Using the theory that you use you will learn to start to piece music together.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard - Roland Weighted Keys
Amplifier
Bongos
Guitar

*** Specialties ***
I teach Chord Percussion Style which is based on the use of chords and strong piano fundamentals and mixed with in-depth Music Theory and percussion technique. Super Fun for all ages!

Gabriel is doing a wonderful job teaching our daughter to sing in her voice and not to mimic other popular artists. We opted for the hour lesson and are pleased the improvement we have witnessed in a few short months. Highly recommend Gabriel!

Ross R.

Nashville, TN

OK, everything is percussion! But certain ones require certain techniques.....and this is what I spent my college years doing when I wasn't trying to meet girls. I can help with most Latin drums, all orchestra percussion, and vibes/xylophone/marimba.

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!

Wil S.

Nashville, TN

Drums have been such a wonderful supplement to my overall musicianship (piano primarily) that I continually practice my old rudiments and practice random percussion instruments on a daily basis. Even though I do not have a degree in drums, I teach them (and play) well.

I have been teaching drums for 8 years now, and have been fortunate enough to play in many different styles of bands, including alternative, jazz, marching (snare and quints), pop, country and more.

Students can expect rapid growth from my lessons as well as having a great time and enjoying music!

About Wil

Hello there! My name is Wil. Let me tell you a little about my background.

I have studied piano extensively for 17 years and drums for 10+, taught since early high school (2005) and have a degree from Southern Methodist University (2013) in Music Composition, with focuses on jazz and classical piano. I also have played in different alternative, pop, rock, country bands throughout my career as a musician, both as a keyboardist and drummer.

I offer any form of lessons, depending on what music style you are trying to play and learn - I have learned all types of music theory, and can play by
ear as well! My diverse playing abilities aid in my full understanding and ability to convey music to any age, any style. I love teaching and giving back to the community through sharing and making music fun! Music psychology is a passion of mine as well, so especially for kids, it helps grow their ability to learn!

Lets PLAY SOME MUSIC!
