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 guitar! 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 ...

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.

"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.

Dave is a great instructor and a really cool guy. I'm an adult student, with a job, family responsibilities, etc. Dave really works with my schedule and teaches me exactly what I want to learn, which helps me progress as fast a possible. He works with me to get an understanding of my goals with the piano, and structures each lesson to get me there quickly.

For my money, Dave's instruction is worth every penny.

Well worth the time and money

Dave was able to meet me where I was and move me toward the goals I had. As as an adult learner, I went in with zero experience with the saxophone but a clear picture of what I wanted to play and somewhat how I wanted to sound. Dave has a great set-up where we have privacy to make noise (sax's aren't known for being quiet). He's able to pluck things out on the piano quickly or to pull something up on the computer or just play. I went from starting out, to wanting to play a few songs, to improvising. Dave has been very helpful and ultimately keeps me improving and moving forward. I've taken other lessons on other instruments, but I will say this is one of the better teachers I have had. He listens well and is able to articulate what he wants you to do --- not trying to be a guru, but more of a guide that keeps you on track.

Dave is the best teacher. Hands down!

After having some rough experiences with past teachers in my life, I came to Dave with a very specific goal in mind. To learn piano so I may graduate college. I had a lot to learn very quickly! I am an older student which made this task a bit intimidating. He is very patient and is able to explain things in a way I understand. He has a very light and nice personality which makes me want to focus and try hard. He definitely pushes me, but in a way that isn't scary.

Dave is the best. He is an incredible teacher and a really nice guy. His studio is really neat and professional which matches his personality. Take lessons with him. You'll be glad you did!

Julie is the BEST!! I took lessons as a child, but had not taken any lessons in over 10 years when I first began lessons with Julie. Almost immediately she was able to help me recall everything I had learned when I was younger. Very knowledgeable and encouraging, makes each lesson a joy! Highly recommended for those who are serious about learning the piano (or anything else I'm sure!).

Great Motavator!!

Julie is our first experience with a piano teacher. She has been instructing my somewhat shy 6 year old for about 9 months now. She is amazing with my daughter. She is very encouraging and stays right on her level while pushing her to expand her knowledge in music. I couldn't be more pleased in our first experience. Julie even had my daughter performing in front of an audience just 4 months after her first lesson. A memory my child will have forever.

I am learning how to play and needed Ben to help me figure out what chords a song had in it. Ben was so patient and took the time to write down each one so that I could learn the song and practice it for a performance. He is a spectacular teacher and will help get you where you need to be as a musician.

What Are the Best Violin Brands for Beginners?
When you’re first starting to play an instrument, it's important to find a compromise between affordability and good quality. It’s not always smart to buy the cheapest model available, as not only is this likely to produce a poor sound and hamper any incentive to practice or progress, but it's likely to lose a lot of value on the resale market - it's worth bearing in mind that student models will be resold at some later date, whether you're moving onto something better, or to another instrument
