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

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.

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