By Julie L. - Nashville Piano Teacher
Nashville, Tennessee has been called “Music City” since WSM-AM announcer David Cobb coined the phrase in 1950. Although Nashville is typically associated with Country music, the truth is that you can hear just about any style of music here. There are many opportunities for anyone taking piano lessons in Nashville to get out and see a variety of live shows, or even perform for an audience.
With 58 official Live Music Venues (each marked a sign in the shape of a large guitar pick), many of the live music acts you will hear feature a pianist or keyboard player. You’ll find Blues at BB King's Blues Club on Second Avenue, and hear live Salsa music while learning to dance Cuban style downstairs in the same building. F. Scott’s Restaurant is a great place to groove to a jazz trio while enjoying a gourmet dinner or “the Piano Man” will play and sing your requests at Maggiano’s Little Italy.
TPAC (Tennessee Performing Arts Center) features Tony Bennett in concert, Les Miserables, or Shrek the Musical. At the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, visiting classical pianists, violinists, percussionists, and singers can be heard. Free tickets for students are provided through the Classroom Classics program. Country music abounds at the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium, and of course Second Fiddle where you can hear live country music 7 days a week on Lower Broadway. You can find excellent music just about anywhere in Nashville, from artists like Lady Gaga and Keith Urban playing downtown at the Bridgestone Arena, to singer-songwriters at the Bluebird Cafe, to showcases at smaller venues like 12th and Porter, or even undiscovered talent serenading passers-by on the sidewalk down Broadway.
Living here in the midst of so much talent can be intimidating, but we all have to start somewhere. As a teacher of music theory, singing and piano lessons in Nashville, I encourage my students to do what they love, follow their musical passions, and work diligently. I love teaching piano lessons in Nashville because there are so many opportunities for me and my students to be inspired by amazing musical performances and to perform in the greater Nashville area. For pianists, singers, or simply music lovers, Nashville is truly “Music City.”
Traditional Piano lessons for beginning through intermediate with optional focus on popular music applications and improvisation.

I am accepting new private students for piano lessons. I have extensive experience teaching children and adults of all levels for 29 years. I also conducted many large projects like musicals with children and they enjoy working with me very much. I have a PhD in Music and I'm a professor at Tennessee State University.
I'm very good with little ones. They think we play on the piano while I'm doing my job. My first aim is to welcome them to world of music and share my love of music. This is very important for me as once they feel and understand music, it will have an important place in their lives.
My sessions for ages between 4-6 will be 30 minutes most but I highly advice 1 hour of lessons for older students, teenagers and adults.
I had 12 years of private instruction in a classical manner and I can also play by ear. I like to keep students engaged by teaching in a more circular manner. Connecting the dots and showing how learning scales theory etc enables you to play the contemporary songs you love! I love all styles of music and tailor each lesson to the current knowledge and ability of the student.
With over fifteen years of experience, I am passionate about teaching piano in a way that leaves each student truly inspired at the end of each lesson. The piano is the most logically laid out instrument for new learners. It's also my favorite one to play! You will learn scales, arpeggios, ear training, notation, music reading and the repertoire you love, all while maintaing a sense of improvisation and flexibility. I work with children of any age...including adults. :)
