Kyle H. Nashville, TN

Guitar is an essential instrument for understanding how music works. Plus, with knowledge of just a few chords, you'll be able to write your own songs!

About Kyle

Having been a musician his whole life, and a bassist since the time he was 15 years old, Kyle elected to attend Berklee College of Music on partial scholarship after graduating high school. This allowed him the opportunity to study with the likes of Whit Browne and Anthony Vitti. Summer breaks from school allowed Kyle to complete professional contracts as a working bass player, including playing in Hersheypark’s “Frontier Frenzy” (2010), Holland America Cruiseline’s “The Neptunes” (2011), and Boston’s “The Honeymooners” (2012). After graduating Berklee Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Music Education (December 2012), Kyle decided to move from his childhood home in Connecticut to Nashville, TN to further his career as a bassist and teacher. Once he arrived in Nashville, he was immediately

Kyle is a great bass teacher. He always made sure that I understood the material and what I was supposed to practice during the week. I progressed more with Kyle than with either of my prior 2 teachers. He also always has a smile on his face! Take lessons from Kyle!

Kyle is GREAT!

Working with Kyle is always a great experience. He is extremely professional, on time, and always respectful of your needs and works 110% to meet your goals. Music is his passion and that is always apparent in any project or lesson he's involved with. He knows how to get people excited about creating and always has an upbeat attitude.

Kyle was great!

I just took my first guitar lesson with Kyle and he was awesome. Very patient, even when I got frustrated with myself. He taught me how to solo on the blues during my very first lesson and got me using a pick for the very first time. Kyle's lesson was engaging and enjoyable.

I've been taking lessons with Logan now for about two months and I am really happy with the approach he has taken in teaching me guitar. I have been a self-taught guitar player for about 8 years but had hit a brick wall with my playing. Logan is teaching me a lot of fundamentals that I missed when I originally taught myself how to play and is stretching me as a player. I'm learning at a faster rate than ever and I wish I wouldn't have waited so long to take lessons. He is patient and communicates very well and I always leave the lesson with material to practice at home. I have already recommended him to friends and definitely recommend him for both beginner guitar players and experienced players as well.

My review does not stem from Logan as a teacher. He has been a good teacher, but my review is in regard to his professionalism. My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Logan since August 2014. I decided to choose Logan as a my daughter's piano teacher because he was budget friendly and had great reviews. I decided to have her take lessons in his home. Everything was excellent until this past month. We started with 1 hour lessons on Wednesdays from 4:30-5:30pm.

In November, I asked if we could change her lessons to 30 minutes and if it would be ok to change her time from 5:00-5:30. I informed him 3 weeks in advance of the change. He told me that schedule would be fine. I could not change the schedule online and this is my first time using Takelessons so I did not know how to change the schedule. After talking to Takelessons, this was something that had to be changed by the instructor.

I purchased 5 (30 minute) lessons and told him that the 30 minute lessons would begin after Thanksgiving. She used 3 lessons during December, and he took 2 weeks off to go out of town. During the month of December, I never received any notification of nonpayment, so I figured everything was fine. When we returned after Christmas break, I arrived at his home to be told that Takelessons had canceled our time slot and another student had taken our spot. He asked me if we could come the next day at the same time. I was a little upset, but I understood and agreed. I came the next day at the same time, and he was not home. His roommate tried contacting him and leaving a voice mail. He was at another lesson. I left him a message with my contact information asking him to contact me. I never heard back from Logan.

A few days later, I emailed him and texted him about the missed lessons. He apologized and offered to give me an extra lesson. I had to contact him to see what would be a good day to reschedule her lessons. I asked if Thursdays were ok. He told me he'd get back with me about the time. I contacted him again to see, and he said 7pm on Thursdays. I agreed, but then I asked if we could do 7:15 because my daughter has a previous lesson that ends at 7 and could not make his lesson at that time.

We had her 4th lesson at 7:15 the following Thursday. The next week he canceled because he told me he was sick with a fever. I said no problem. Then I receive a text from him saying I'll be 5-10 minutes late. I asked if that message was meant for me. He told me no. I was under the assumption that he was on his way to a lesson and wasn't sick at all. He made a mistake by sending me the wrong message.

For yesterday's lesson, we were running a little bit late and arrived at his home at 7:20. We knocked several times and waited, but no one was home. I had been stood up and inconvenienced 3 times in the same month. I do not live very close, and it was a waste of my time and gas. I called him, there was no answer.

As we were leaving, I called twice to see if I could reach him, and then he finally picked up. I told him we were waiting for him for my daughter's 7:15 lesson. He said he was on his way to another lesson. He said the lesson was supposed to be at 7 and I said no, we agreed to 7:15. He said he waited until 7:20 and decided to leave. I asked why didn't he call before leaving. He then made the claim that I had not made any payment for any of my daughter's lessons. I was furious, and I informed him that I had proof that I paid him. He was being rude, and I was angry so I decided to end the conversation and mentioned that I would contact Takelessons to settle the matter.

I sent him a text message with a screenshot to show my proof of payment and my contact with him about the schedule change, and he responded back by saying, "I do not appreciate the harrassment or defamation, please cease contact with me and contact me through our contractor." I have been nothing but professional with him, and I feel as though I did not deserve that response.

I have been inconvenienced many times, and I feel as though he has not tried to alleviate the situation. He has not been sympathetic even though my daughter has been a faithful student. I feel as though since he believed I had not made any payments, he had been disregarding our lessons. I told him if he had concerns about payment, he should have taken the situation up with me and talked to me instead of avoiding me.

After talking to Take Lessons, if the schedule had been changed by the instructor, the instructor would have been paid for his lessons, and I would not have lost my time slot. This whole situation would have been avoided if he had changed my daughter's lesson time on Takelessons. I feel as though he should take responsibility for the error and apologize the inconvenience. I have always been honest with him, and I have been understanding up to this point. I am trying to leave an honest review of my experience.

I am very unhappy and disappointed with how Logan has handled this whole situation, and I would not recommend him as a piano teacher because he has been very unprofessional. I think he needs to do a better job scheduling his lessons and have better communication with his students.

Nice guy, easy to get along with, patient and very supportive and positive. Has a true love for teaching music and is very approachable and non threatening, which is great for a child that is placed in an unfamiliar environment doing new things.

About Jonah

Hello! I believe that music is something everyone can do: it can be played alone or in pairs (and trios, quartets,etc). Playing music is extremely rewarding. It's about discovering your potential, and having fun doing it! Having played music for 25 years, and teaching for 12, I have experience as a performer, composer, and producer. I grew up playing cello before switching to guitar, and graduated from New England Conservatory of Music with a BA in jazz performance. Most recently, I moved to Nashville where I am currently training to be a Registered Piano Technician. *** Lesson Details *** I offer a wide pallet of musical options. Whether teaching guitar, piano, bass, violin, or cello, I aim to provide a well rounded approach to the performance and understanding of music. ...

He is a superior teacher! His musical ability is sine qua non. His ability makes it easy for me to learn from him. He began early with the cello, which he plays beautifully. He has also mastered other instruments. We play duets together and I enjoy playing with him very much. His theory is excellent; I have learned so much being his student. He has made me better and I feel more confident about my own playing and about myself.

I would definitely rate Jonah a 5 star teacher and would strongly recommend him to others.

We are so pleased with the instruction our son received this summer with Jonah. He is excellent with students. You can tell he cares about their progress and their personal goals and that they really learn with him as their teacher. We have taken lessons with other music teachers in the past with our older children, and we have not found one that takes as much time with the student and really cares that they learn the way Jonah has.

Laid back guy, great with kids, excellent musical knowledge

Jonah works with both of our sons teaching piano. He is positive and upbeat and encourages them to do their best. His credentials are impeccable with a wide-ranging and deep musical background/education. He expects success from the kids, he gently pushes them to succeed. He is always on time to our house and is trustworthy. We highly recommend Jonah.

I am most happy to write a review for Dustin who I have found very professional, thorough, patient and fun to work with. His creativity to find ways to work with my learning methods, explain things so I can understand, and his wealth of knowledge and experience makes him a perfect teacher/coach/agent or a number of other skills in his portfolio. A high recommendation from this very satisfied customer. Thanks Dustin.

About Matthew

An Ohio native, I began playing guitar when I was 6 and came from a musical family. I am an active performer, producer, and composer. My goal as a teacher is to foster a lifelong interest in music and give my students the tools they need to develop their art. If you want to get the most out of your practice time and build a solid foundation on which you can continually develop, a great teacher can accelerate your development and get you where you want to be. If you are a beginner or even a seasoned player looking to advance your playing, knowing which direction to go and how to continue developing can be a challenge. Methods are many, principals are few. Understanding how music works will allow you to become your own teacher in the long run and that is my goal with all of my students.

So far I've had a few lessons with Matt and not only is he a great instructor, but also a great guy who is eager to engage with his students beyond just learning to play guitar. I came into the lessons with absolutely no knowledge of how to actually play – I was a fan and that was it – but I feel comfortable playing chords and scales after a few lessons. I look forward to my future lessons with Matt and definitely recommend him as a teacher.
Jamie H. Nashville, TN

I teach guitar to beginners with an emphasis on basic theory, chord structure, and songwriting/playing.

About Jamie

Hello! I'm Jamie, and I love music! I started teaching drum lessons to kids around my neighborhood when I was in high school, and have kept doing so on-and-off for the past several years. I like to focus on giving each student a strong understanding of the basics of drums and drum set playing (theory, notation, rhythm, grooves, beats, etc.), and play to each students strengths and interests. I like to think of my self as a big, bearded man-child, so kids like me, and I like them. As for guitar, I am mostly self-taught. I took a beginner course in high school, and have been learning along the way on my own ever since. I play rhythm guitar, and I like to think that my drumming informs my guitar playing to a great extent. I am very groove-oriented, rhythm is what gets me going!
