Chicken Picken' in the styles of Brent Mason to Brad Paisley. It's always fun to get the Twang on. Living in Nashville for over 15 years has given me the experience to play and teach Country Guitar

About Scott
Scott has been teaching music for over 30 years. His method has evolved over time to meet the demands of changing musical styles and he has developed plenty of material to help students achieve their musical goals. His ambitions for each student are simple- he wants them to enjoy music and experience a sense of accomplishment from the learning process. In short, Scott works to make lessons fun and educational! Most beginning pupils will learn to play a song in the first couple of lessons. Handouts and music tracks are used to enhance the lessons.

Everyone is unique in how and what they want to learn. Scott uses positive encouragement to teach what is needed for the next step with the instrument. Students learn technique for dexterity, songs for the ear and theory so they understand the why's in music.

His training started at GIT (
Guitar Institute of Technology) in Hollywood where he gleaned 30+ yrs. of information from world renowned guitarists and musicians. Scott went on to graduate from Belmont University with honors in Composition and Arranging. Playing in Rock, R&B, Country, Classical and Jazz original and cover bands has enhanced his skills and made him a well rounded musician. He has the ability to teach these styles and make a living playing them.

Scott teaches all levels of students from beginner to advanced as well as the "signed artist" who have recording deals and need a little extra coaching. He has taught well known musician's family members and many of Scott's former students have gone on to make a career of their own in music as teachers, performers or composers.

"I enjoy music so much that it has always been a pleasure to pass on the knowledge of playing music."

I took weekly electric guitar lessons with Scott from 2004 to 2012. He is without a doubt an extremely talented, enthusiastic, and compassionate teacher. Whether he was helping me learn basic chords or teaching me complicated songs, Scott never wavered in his dedication to teaching. Over the eight years as his student, Scott gave constructive criticism in a courteous manner. He was on time, inquisitive about the songs and music I was listening to, and ended lesson with new material for me to practice. I wholeheartedly recommend Scott to any aspiring guitar student.

We understand each other. I need a lot of left hand finger exercise on guitar strings to strengthen finger muscles and toughen, firm and harden my finger tips. Set up next class in 2 weeks.

Mr. B is wonderful! I went through two other teachers before him and neither of them taught what I wanted to learn. Mr. B was the only who asked me, " Hey what do YOU want to learn?" I didn't know that was even an option. He is very knowledgeable, talented, and the nicest guy you'd ever want to meet!

About Matthew C.

Antioch, TN
View Full Profile

I've been playing guitar for the last 15 years and giving lessons for almost as long! I have a degree in music from the University of Miami and am currently touring out of Nashville. I'd like to think I have a fairly wide range of musical tastes (jazz, country, blues, acoustic, gypsy jazz, rockabilly, rock, etc.) and I enjoy the different challenges that each of my students bring to the table. So whether you're just wanting to strum a few old favorites at home, or if you're on your way to being a Nashville pro like me, I'd be happy to help you along your musical journey!

About Matthew
I picked up the guitar (at my father's encouragement) back in 2003 and never quite turned back! Originally from Kansas City, MO, I first got regular exposure playing in my high school's jazz band and in various other jazz groups, and was lucky enough to study extensively with local guitarists Rod Fleeman and Danny Embrey. I still make occasional trips back to my hometown to perform and record, and played on a couple of records with the KC-based group The Matt Cook Collective in 2016 and 2017.

My next stop was the University of Miami, where I attended the Frost School of Music from 2012-2016 and was fortunate enough to study with John Hart, Brian Russell, and Tim Jago I played with my first Grammy winner (multi-instrumentalist guru Charlie McCoy) and released an EP with Big City Folk Band in 2015. In between school semesters, I performe
d with country and jazz groups in Kansas City and gave lessons at KC Music, a local music store.

In 2017, I relocated to Nashville, began touring with country artist Derryl Perry, and recorded and released my first solo album, Aces. In between tour dates, I've been enjoying the task of expanding both my teaching studio and my guitar resume in this growing city.

I have also taken lessons from Gonzalo Bergara, Dan Wilson, Lorne Lofsky, Charlie Hunter, Jim Campilongo, Randy Vincent, Greg Koch, Guthrie Trapp, Brent Mason, and many more!

Update: will be at the Smoky Mountain Opry in Pigeon Forge TN in 2018!

Please see my questionnaire! Would love to have a strong start together by learning a bit about you and your motivations!

About Jake
I'm a husband and father. My dad taught me guitar as a kid and now I've been playing for about 20 years. I start lessons with beginners by asking what you want to accomplish on guitar. Let's discover what you want to do on the guitar and make a plan to get you there.

I am flexible for any frequency of lessons that best fits your schedule (weekly, bi-weekly, etc.). With summer upon us, I understand the need to be flexible. Let me know what works for you and we will make it work.

For parents: I want to create a safe and empowering learning environment for your child(ren). As your child continues in lessons with me I'd love to connect with you along the way as well to discuss how I'm doing and what we can do to continue empowering your child.

I have experience teaching children living with unique needs. If your child is differentl
y abled, I would love to be the person to teach him or her an instrument!

I've been playing fingerstyle blues for about a decade now, and I love showing other people interested in this style. From Mississippi John Hurt, to Lightnin Hopkins, to Reverend Gary Davis. I can show you what you want to learn.

About Dylan
I'm a professional teacher and performer in Southern California. My passion is fingerstyle blues like Mississippi John Hurt, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Reverend Gary Davis. It's hard work in the beginning, but I can't think of anything else that's brought me more joy than becoming proficient in this style. You know you want to play the blues on a porch. Let me give you the tools to express yourself.

I have a passion for teaching and try to make lessons fun. I also have over 30 years teaching experience with a BME Degree in Guitar plus alot of graduate work. I have 16 years teaching experience in the Public School System. I've played in a Jazz group that toured around the Gulf Coast area. I've also held many Church Music positions. I love writing music and has written for many different genres.

About Brian
I am a Guitarist/Composer/Songwriter/Bassist/Vocalist with a Bachelor Of Music Education Degree from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Classical Guitar emphasis. I've also recieved graduate work in Theory and Composition. I've also been teaching Guitar for over 30 years as well as being a Music Educator in the public school system for 16 years. I've held many Church Music positions in the Mississippi Gulf Coast area over the last 25 years. In addition, I just recorded a Jazz project entitled, "Graffiti Bridge" where I wrote and played most of the Guitar, Bass, and Keyboard parts. I've also led many choirs over my career and provided years of vocal instruction. I've written music for Solo Guitar, Strings, Concert Band, as well as Choral Music.
I love to share my passion for music with my students as they progress and grow as mu
sicians. Each student is different and I think that it is important for a teacher to communicate with the student to find out what their goals and aspirations are for their personal musical growth. In addition, their are certain things that I think are important for each student to know such as music reading, basic musicianship, playing with other musician at all levels, and understand genres, etc.
In addition, I think that it is important for a teacher to nurture the passion for music that hopefully is present in each student. A teacher cannot create passion but they can nurture it.
I look forward to the opportunity to share my musical knowledge and experience with you!

Loudon, TN

I offer tailored lesson plans that focus on your personal goals as a guitarist as well as aim to place student's on a firm foundation of music theory as applied to the guitar and collaborating with other musician's. With 13 years of learning and 4 years of giving it back under my belt, I'm grateful and dedicated to being able to offer affordable, high-quality and most importantly personal guitar lessons. All are welcome.

About Ken
I've been playing 🎸 for a little over 13 years now, with my base genre being blues to this day. I've also had the opportunity to delve into various other styles over the years through learning songs that I like, playing for 2 groups I got the chance to be a part of, having to learn pieces for music classes, or learning songs that students want to learn so that I can teach them. I played for 3 years before I started studying music theory so if you're in the same position I'd be happy to approach it with a perspective for guitar. Or we can focus on specific songs you might like to master. It's all up to you and I always keep it in mind to leave my student's in a position and a mindset to continue learning and most importantly: wanting to learn between lessons. Part of what I find important in achieving those two goals is one: making sure th
at the student's personal development path is always a priority; and two: making sure that what is taught is applied in a way that the student can continue self-directed development between lessons. Please get in touch and let me know what you have in mind.
