Ideas to Inspire Your Young Musician in Nashville

Written by: TakeLessons Teacher, Heather E.

I moved to Nashville about a year ago, and while I knew it was “Music City,” I thought the nickname was a bit out of date. I mean, Nashville is just lame Honky Tonk music, right? WRONG! Nashville is pulsing with musical life! Most of the bars and clubs have fresh local bands, which is so refreshing! But…we’re talking about kid-friendly stuff, which is fun too.

My son Jonah is eleven months old, so my husband and I have been searching for some music activities we can all do together. The best thing is, a lot of the best ones we've found are totally free! As a mom and wife of a grad student/musician, free is good. Free is really good.

If you moved to Nashville recently, or if you are visiting with your family for the weekend, here are some ideas for inspiring the budding musician inside your child:

Music in the Park I found about this way too late last summer! Nashville hosts Music in the Park at Centennial Park almost every Saturday from May to August. Centennial is a huge park on the West End, across from Vanderbilt. There’s a great walking trail, a pond, a playground, and a huge yard in front of the Parthenon where they hold the concerts. Just bring your blanket and snacks and enjoy some FREE live music!

Franklin, TN It’s adorable. It’s the cutest thing you've ever seen. And, it’s full of street performers! Franklin is a suburb of Nashville, about a twenty minute drive from the city. I think some country music star was walking down the street and discovered a musician there (or so the story goes), so now it’s full of street performers. I've heard some pretty amazing stuff walking down the streets in Franklin. And don’t forget, if their performance is good enough to make you stop and listen, you owe them a dollar. So… not totally free. But close.

Student Performances Belmont University and Vanderbilt University both have some great student performances, which are almost always FREE! The theater program at Vandy puts on some amazing performances, and all of the music I've ever heard at Belmont has blown me away. (They had Dianne Graves at their Christmas performance this year!)

Also, tip from a local: If you want to meet a famous country star, skip the Grand Ole Opry and head to the Whole Foods in Green Hills. (I’m serious.)

Heather E. teaches voice lessons in Nashville, TN, as well as online. She has a BA in Music from Winthrop University and specializes in classical voice and audition prep.

Dani E.

Nashville, TN

I hold a B.F.A. in Vocal Performance from The New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music in NYC and teach beginning, hobbyist singers all the way through to working, professional singers. The most important thing I like to work on with voice students, is helping you to find your own distinct voice and how to use it to the best of it's abilities. That involves developing your technique, vocal health, and an overall familiarity with how your voice functions.

About Dani

Hi! I'm a singer/songwriter who recently relocated to Nashville from Brooklyn, NY. I just got off the road from singing backing vocals for Miley Cyrus on the Bangerz World Tour and am looking forward to picking up with my students again and hopefully working with some new ones! I've been teaching since 2006 in addition to writing and performing my original music as well as singing backing vocals for various artists such as Amos Lee, Sheryl Crow, The Roots, and more.

That involves developing your technique, vocal health, and an overall familiarity with how your voice functions.

When it comes to teaching piano, I work with beginner students and was mainly teaching children ages 5 and up back in NYC. That's not to say if you're an adult we couldn't work together! I like to work from a workbook of some kind-my students and I were using the 'Bastien Series' and 'Dozen A Day' in addition to other repertoire books.

In addition to playing, some of my students liked to compose original music which I highly encourage and help foster if that's something you desire to do.

I'd love to talk with you more about what you, or your child is looking to achieve through taking piano or voice lessons!

"Awesome" Teacher

Dani taught my 10-year-old daughter piano for 2 years. She supremely professional, thorough, and most importantly fun. My daughter couldn't wait for her weekly lessons. As she says, Dani is "awesome." Dani was able to deftly make the lessons educational but also lively. My daughter still loves to play, practices without being asked, and reads music well. I credit that to Dani's focus, patience and enthusiasm. She always showed up smiling, and to my daughter's delight also had stickers for her lesson book after each class. I cannot recommend her enough, and am sad that we don't live in the same city so my daughter can continue her lessons with her. A wonderful teacher.

Great with Kids - Professional & Reliable!

Dani was our piano teacher in nyc - we miss her so much, Nashville is lucky to have her! We have 2 kids, 8 & 9 years old, and they enjoyed having lessons with Dani very much. Always reliable & professional, Dani has a special way with children. She makes them & their music feel important and she never talks down to them. She also knows how to motivate, encourage & celebrate them. We highly recommend Dani as a piano teacher.

Dustin B.

Nashville, TN

Professional singing and instrumental voice techniques.

Whether you’re just a beginner in school or wanting to supplement your songwriting with a better voice, singing lessons offer training for the voice as an instrument. Learn correct breathing, how to sing in tune and on pitch, find and extend range, get a quality sound and learn the fundamentals of music in general. (These lessons are similar yet different to “vocal training” lessons. If your looking for more vocal performance techniques such as on stage performance enhancement, repertoire choice and improving singing performance, visit the “Vocal Training” lessons tab for more information.)

As with all the lessons I teach, being comfortable in the lesson and with your craft is crucial for making great music! Lesson are customized for each students needs and goals preparing a plan that is enjoyable, fun and motivating.

About Dustin

Education Experience:

Private Lessons - 22 years
Public and Magnet Schools - 7 years

I've tutored 100’s of students from ages 4 to 58. Teaching primarily saxophone I've also tutored on Clarinet, Flute, piano, guitar, bass, percussion, tuba, trumpet and voice. I also give instruction in music theory, improvisation, arranging, composition, engraving, music notation, and general studio operations from recording to engineering. I have given lessons privately and under many school and magnet programs from Iowa, Miami and currently the Nashville school systems.

I hold a Degree from the hig
hly accredited University of Miami in Coral Gables Florida, and have also taken courses at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls Iowa in classical performance and education.

Professional Experience:

As a musician I have traveled to and performed in over 51 countries around the world, all the major cities in the US and many famous venues in New York City, London and Rome. I've appeared with such artists as: Michael Brecker, Arturo Sondoval, Jerry Bergonzi, David Sanborn, Bob Mintzer, David Liebman, Joe Lovano, Jamey Aebersold, Bobby Shew, Poncho Sanchez, Duffy Jackson, American Idol's Kimberely Locke, Earth wind and Fire, Lionel Richie, Clarence Clemets, William Shatner, The Miami Heat American Airlines Arena Band, and most recently in Nashville with Steve Martin’s Bluegrass Band.

Student Lesson Details:

Most importantly, I believe music should be fun and music lessons should also be fun. Not only is it important to learn music but also to PLAY IT! I teach a simple and effective system to all students learning music or an instrument for the first time. It is my goal to achieve that students potential in the shortest amount of time and at the highest level.

It is important that all students learn the fundamentals of the language of music however I’m very flexible to each student’s individual needs and desires.

Teacher Equipment and Studio:

The lesson studio is located in the heart of Nashville’s Music Row. It is a professional recording studio and an isolated space offering a noise free environment. The studio is also equipped with a waiting area where parents can view the lesson through a large glass window. There is also a lavatory and free parking.

The studio offers professional recording gear and an 88 weighted key piano. I can also provide all lesson materials and books required for learning and some additional instruments are also available.

**Special services**

For the same price as the lesson time I can also provide instrument repair service. I have many years experience working on saxophones, clarinets, flutes and other instruments dealing with general maintenance, to complete overhaul. Please inquire for more details.

RaShelle M.

Nashville, TN

About RaShelle

From the age of 4, RaShelle composed music and played piano by ear, dreaming of the day when she would be able to hear her pieces played by full string orchestras and symphony orchestras. In high school, she began studying classical piano performance with Mrs. Patricia Randolph, graduate of Eastman School of Music. During her studies with Mrs. Randolph, she received “rating one” in 2003 and 2004 for her piano performances at the Nebraska Music Guild Competition. Later in college while studying jazz and tango in Buenos Aires, Argentina, RaShelle was inspired to pursue her passion for both ele
ctronic and acoustic composition. Upon returning to the United States, she studied electronic composition with Dr. Charles Nichols at the University of Montana, and acoustic composition with Dr. Eric Funk at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana.

Currently RaShelle is teaching in low-income schools with Teach for America, which is a non-profit working to close the achievement gap. In addition, she is working on the completion of her master’s degree at the University of Montana.

Great with kids

My 4 year old daughter expressed an interest in playing the piano but neither my wife or I know how to play. I'm very pleased we found RaShelle. She's patient, positive and enthusiastic. Our daughter looks forward to each lesson, which is more than I could have hoped for. And, she's learning a lot.

What impresses me most is that RaShelle is also helping her learn to sing in key while she plays. My daughter is only 4 and already knows how to do things that I can't. That's pretty exciting.

Enthusiastic Teacher!

RaShelle has a God-given musical talent and it shows in her enthusiasm for music - not only in piano, but guitar and singing, as well.

RaShelle's love for music~ is evident in the way that she teaches and inspires you as a student to want to excel to the same level of excellence.

I strongly recommend this young woman as a teacher.

Brianne A.

Nashville, TN

Singing is one of the most personal forms of musicianship because your instrument is a part of your body!

In our lesson we will learn how to keep that instrument safe while exploring all the different things you didn't even know it could do.

About Brianne

I am a working artist/songwriter with placements on Nickelodeon, NBC, Rockband, international radio airplay and was featured on "This Sing Off" 2014 Holiday Special with Timothy's Gift (video below). I graduated from Belmont University in 2009 with a BA in Commercial Voice-emphasis in music business. I am currently the co-owner of The Recording Republic here in Nashville, TN where my partner and I write/produce music and help develop artists. I have been teaching voice, piano, theory, performance and songwriting on and off for the past 5 years and love every second of it. I Can't wait to mee
t you and see what goals we can reach together!

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important things I focus on in my lessons are positivity and building confidence. The confidence learned expressing yourself creatively is something that bleeds over into all aspects of life. It's so wonderful watching a kid (or an adult!) gradually come out of their shells during the process.

During the first lesson, I sit down with the student and talk to them about their dreams and goals. That way, I can build a curriculum that perfectly fits their needs. We can learn anything their heart desires-from classical Beethoven to writing their own music! For basic piano I love to use the "Bastien" and "Alfred" basic collections because they are what I grew up on.

Can't wait to meet you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have a weighted keyboard, mic, amp, mirror and video for recording performances.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Mic, amp and video recorder are portable. Student must provide piano for in home visits. And plus, you'll need one to practice!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in beginner classical piano and improvisation, beginner-advanced voice, theory, performance and songwriting of all styles.

Highly recommend Brianne!

I started taking piano lessons with Brianne a little over two months ago, and I have seen a huge improvement in my performance and confidence. Brianne is very professional and experienced, and she knows exactly what she's talking about. My favorite thing about the lessons is that she is takes time to get to know her students to find out exactly what their goals are and what they hope to get out of the lessons. I came in with some piano experience and an idea of what I wanted, and she was able to customize my lessons so that they perfectly fit me. Brianne is very encouraging and wants you to succeed. I would definitely recommend taking lessons from her!

I've learned soo much in such a short time

i've always wanted to learn how to play the piano but I never could find the right teacher. Brianne has really helped me find my place as a budding piano player. She is very thorough and makes learning fun. She creates such a calm atmosphere with no judgment and i really enjoy that. Another thing that separates her from the other teachers i've had is that she doesn't teach based on her agenda she teaches me what i want to know. I can't wait fro my next lesson!

Tips for Singing: Why Practicing Scales Matters
It's a common misconception that singers and instrumentalists are two completely different types of musicians. They're actually much more alike than you might think!
