I have been taking lessons with Chris for 7 years and the knowledge he has given me has proved invaluable in my experience as a musician. I am currently attending Vanderbilt University and majoring in jazz guitar performance. My lessons with Chris prepared me for my audition and have helped me face the tedious workload that all music majors face. The work I have done with Chris helped me develop a jazz vocabulary for improvising, learn a repertoire of jazz standards, and develop a time feel that has helped me when playing everything from jazz to rock to metal. I would recommend Chris's lessons to anyone who would like to learn guitar or improve upon the skills they already have..

Private Guitar Teacher

I tailor my guitar lessons to each of my students so that they can improve their skills in areas that interest them the most whether that be acoustic, electric, blues, classical, jazz, or country. This teaching approach, combined with my extensive and diverse guitar style background fosters the most efficient path of growth for my students. Furthermore, I can offer to teach students how to both sing and play guitar as I studied both guitar and voice for over 7 years.

My qualifications:
I've studied the guitar for seven years focusing on sight reading, playing by ear, understanding chord structures, and music theory. I've played in a rock band in college, I played guitar in Kenyon's Jazz Strings ensemble, I've also performed in bars in Paris. Additionally, I'm always ready to learn new styles or help my students learn songs that they're interested to play.

Jean-Louis has been working with my son for a few sessions. He has done a great job working with the type of music my son wants to work on as well as providing him useful feedback on improving his singing. He also helped him to work on a chord to play alongside his song. Highly recommend!

Jordan is a great teacher. He's been patient with me so far as I am still learning how to play guitar and also factor it in to my busy schedule. He's also planning to teach me how to play my favorite songs which is awesome as well. I would recommend Jordan to anyone who is trying to learn how to play guitar.

Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar since 2010, starting with a classical foundation and branching out into about everything I could get my hands on. I learned that there is a fundamental set of skills that make just about everything possible. I encourage beginner students to start with whatever they are drawn to, no matter how obscure or cliche. As they come along I help them realize what is common to all things musical and develop the skills that are equally useful in all styles so they have the freedom to explore anything their heart desires effectively.

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn

The first class was very good. We covered a good amount of ground. There's only so much an instructor can do during a first class as the teacher and student get to know each other, however, so I'm looking forward to future classes to get deeper into the lessons

"Sandi’s one of the best music teachers you’ll find! She’s great at keeping it interesting by showing you songs you actually like, then explaining how they work and the theory behind them. She’ll teach you the classics too, but she’ll always find a direction that interests you. I took lessons in her studio when I was in high school and her teachings were one of the biggest stepping stones that enabled me to get into music college, then start a successful career in music. She was also great about finding me a more advanced teacher when it was time. Sandi is really here to help you go as far as you can."

"I am so lucky have Jason as my daughter's electric guitar teacher. He is very professional, he knows what to teach and how to teach my daughter based on her level. My daughter really learned a lot from the first 5 lessons that she just completed. Of course I will sign her up to continue with Jason. Jason is also a very nice teacher. He never mind to teach extra time if he finds my daughter is still with passion to the music of the class, and Jason even lend his own guitar to my daughter for her jazz band audition. Thank you so much Jason!"

"Great teacher!

Ayme was a great teacher. I started lessons with her when I was 9 now I am 16
and kind of a shredder.
She is really patient, encouraging and has a great sense of humor. I learned a lot
about music theory and soloing without even noticing. When I moved
on to other teachers, I realized what a great foundation she gave me, I was way ahead of the other students and sometimes a little ahead of the teacher. Lol.
She knows a lot about different kinds of music, which was really cool.
I learned blues, some rockabilly, and even a Metallica song while I was
studying with her. She makes learning really fun!"
