About Lucian
Lucian W is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music in Boston and former faculty member of the Hartford Conservatory. His vocal studies have been with Jacqueline Jarrett and David Baker in Connecticut, Jane Ellison at Loyola University in Montreal, noted operatic tenor Carmine Gagliardi in New York City, and Gina Moretta (whose students have included Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada) in Miami. He studied privately with world famous jazz guitarists George Benson and Chuck Wayne and has had a full time performing career of several decades as a guitarist, pianist, vocalist, bassist, arranger and orchestra leader.
Lucian believes that by sharing his enjoyment of making music with his students, he can give them confidence in other areas. That is because, in order to make music, they must go through a process of physical discovery through pr
actice. They are then empowered by experiencing the connections between inspiration, work, and pleasure.
He performs, as a solo entertainer, an unusually wide ranging repertoire because of his versatility on guitar, piano, and vocals. Being an accomplished arranger with a vast library of charts also allows him to lead a ten piece orchestra as competently as a trio or quartet. He has performed extensively in New York, Chicago, Cape Cod, and Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always try to make lessons as comfortable and enjoyable as possible yet challenging enough to maintain interest. I build lessons around the student's individual interests (specific songs or styles) so that he or she can learn the technical fundamentals in a relevant context.
My own curriculum is supplemented by the following:
Guitar: Hal Leonard Guitar Method, Aaron Shearer Classical Guitar Method
Piano: Alfred's Basic Piano Course , John W. Schaum Piano Course
Voice: Jeffrey Allen's Secrets of Singing, Nicola Vaccai Practical Method

*** Studio Equipment ***
Hardman baby grand acoustic piano
OptimusMD1600 electronic keyboard
Crate TX50D guitar amplifer

*** Specialties ***
- Singing lesson time is generally divided 50/50 between voice building and repertoire. I accompany vocalists on both piano and guitar, teaching the melody notes as they are sung along with the piano. Then, once the melody is learned, I often switch to the guitar with just chordal backing. The acoustic guitar is also softer than the piano and lets the singer hear their own voice better. For voice building, I use my own concepts plus approaches of famous voice teachers like Jeffrey Allen, Seth Riggs, and Anthony Frissel.
- I am very experienced performing all styles of guitar and can cater to the student's specific area of interest, whether it be rock, folk, classical, or jazz.
- With piano, I work on fundamentals of reading and technique. Learning basic harmony and chord construction starting with triads (3 note chords), the student can soon read single stave lead sheets (a form of music notation widely utilized by professional musicians) as well as the grand staff. This approach trains the ear and makes learning how to play popular songs much easier.

Lucian has a life time of experience as a practing musician, and also has been teaching for many years. I've had other guitar teachers, but Lucian​ is great at explanation and practical instruction. He's not just teaching you how to strum chords, but also about music theory.

He has the patience, and demeanor that is perfect for teaching. No easy task. I've seen other students of all ages here as well.

Great teacher

Ryan takes his time and tailors my lessons specifically to my level and to the type of music I’d like to play. He covers everything from the basics – like the proper way to hold the pick – to more advanced teachings like music theory. Ryan is flexible, patient, easy going, and he consistently teaches at a pace that I’m comfortable with. He provides take-home practice after every lesson and always has helpful suggestions any time I have questions. What I find incredibly helpful is that at the end of the lesson Ryan will run through the take-home practice on his guitar and let me record it on my phone so it’s easier for me to remember. When I’m ready to practice the next day I just pull up his notes and the video and I’m ready to go!

It’s obvious that Ryan has a passion for music, and it shows in his lessons. I would easily give him my highest recommendation.

In 1997 I decided I wanted to play guitar, so I would grab my mother's guitar after school every day and watch a video and try to follow along. Her old acoustic was awful and actually painful to play, but I didn't know anything different, so I persisted. Fast forward to today and I've played in many bands, featuring many styles of music, all while being paid to do so since 2000. I teach my students the basic fundamentals of guitar playing, techniques specific to the type of music they want to play, and challenge them to compose their own songs using what they've learned. My teaching style is informal, laid back, and I stress to all my students that it is important to keep an open mind when studying music. If you have a specific goal and want to know if I can help you reach it, please send me a message and I'll see if I can help.

About Travis
I have an informal, laid back teaching style. My lessons tailored around your goals and are designed to keep you challenged and moving forward.

For younger students I focus on fun rhythm, pitch, and listening exercises. It is also important to establish good technique at this level as it will make learning easier as they advance. These lessons focus on the melody line of a song that is easily recognizable for even young children.

For students with prior experience I start with a basic review of technique, music theory, and try to identify any trouble areas that should be addressed before moving on to more advanced lessons. These lessons involve learning to arrange covers using both harmony and melody, of songs you want to learn, as well as constructing your own lead guitar lines.

More advanced lessons involve breaking down and learni
ng a specific technique or style of music. Take slide guitar for example. I would discuss different slide types and techniques, open tuning you guitar, stylistic elements in your playing, chord progressions that work within your style, and scales that work over those progressions. These lessons involve learning to play covers as well as writing your own songs.

I have had my music placed in popular television shows, such as “The Real World” and “Road Rules," as well as the film “The Tested.”

I previously played guitar in a project called Xolie Morra and the Strange Kind. We were featured as the musical guest on the popular late night talk show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in January 2014.

Guitar is my main focus, but I am also comfortable teaching bass and ukulele. I love all styles, and specialize in rock, blues, funk, pop, reggae, metal, and acid jazz. I have experience teaching students of all ages (as young as 4 years old) and am currently an active teacher. I am also fluent in Japanese.

Nashville, TN

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
I love the guitar, and so getting to teach students how to play something that is so dear to me is an absolute joy. I have been playing for 9 years and only keep getting more interested i the instrument. I love playing everything from jazz to country, to finger-style, to blues and used to even dabble in some metal. My professional performance experience includes solo guitar gigs, rock band shows, musical theatre pit work, dance band playing, and gigs along the east coast with rising country acts.
I will graduate 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, music history, and studying the guitar, but before college I was largely a self taught player and am now a professionally performing musician here in Nashville. That being said, I can
teach all of the "correct" notions of music from my academic background, but I also have real experience regarding what a musician needs to be able to do if they want to become a professional.
I do my best to make lessons relaxed. I don't ever want a student to be nervous for a lesson with me because they did not practice as much as they think they should. While I encourage as much practice as possible, I care more about a student realizing the positive force that music can be in their lives; music doesn't need to be a stressor.

I've been playing guitar for 17 years and teaching for 10. I have extensive experience in the real world of music -- I've played some of Atlanta's most exciting stages and have played with world-class musicians from many genres. I teach the way I learn -- through fun! Once we get the basics down, we'll learn songs of the student's choosing and use those opportunities to learn about new techniques, patterns, and scales. As a former preschool teacher, my favorite thing in the world (besides music, of course) is inspiring a lasting love for learning!

About Daniel
Hey y'all! I'm a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and performer with 10+ years teaching experience. I spent years as a preschool, pre-K, and Kindergarten teacher before devoting my life fully to music. I'm 27 and have taught music students of all ages and backgrounds, as young as 4 (don't ever let them tell you you can't teach a four-year-old to sing!). Let's start with the basics, then we'll let YOUR personality lead the way!

As a guitarist, I'm comfortable teaching multiple genres but have a love for folk, blues, and rock n roll. I love to make music, and I love to inspire others to do the same!
