Jordan R.

Nashville, TN

About Jordan

I received my education at the University of Wisconsin, majoring in Jazz Guitar. I've studied with some of the best guitarists in the Midwest, and have performed live and in recording studios all across the country in a variety of styles (Rock, Metal, Bluegrass, Jazz, Classical, Country). I've performed internationally, and my playing has been featured on several prime time television shows. I've always had a love of music, and it’s a passion that I try to instill in all of my students!

Through focus on note reading, chords, improvisation, and technique, I try to give my students tools that
they can take with them throughout their musical journey, whether playing music for fun or professionally!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to be laid back and very individual with my approach. I always introduce a curriculum designed to teach basic chords, note reading, and basic theory, but I also understand that each student has a particular set of interests, and I want to inspire them to follow those interests. Whether it's Rock, Blues, Country, Folk, or Classical, I want to give my students the tools and understanding that they need to excel at the music that drives them.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to have everything that they need to practice the materials that I give them, including an instrument, amplifier and tuner if necessary, and a music stand. I provide all lesson materials.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock, country, metal, blues, and jazz with an emphasis on theory and technique.

Eric D.

Nashville, TN

I teach Drums for ages 5 and up. Any experience level from beginner to advanced!

About Eric

Hi! My name is Eric. Originally from Baltimore, Maryland I have been playing drums for the past 15 years. My musical pursuits started in the 5th grade when I began playing in school band. Throughout Middle and High School I played in All County Jazz and Symphonic band. Upon my graduation I was accepted into Berklee College of Music and received my Bachelors of Music in Drumset Performance. It was at Berklee that I also began my teacher career and discovered the extremely rewarded endeavor of sharing my passion for music with others. I have now been teaching for the past 5 years and have toured
the world with many great musicians. It is now that I wish to share my experiences with the Nashville community!

***Lesson Details***

Lessons can take place in my home studio or the student's home or desired location. This is offered as a convenience for families with busy schedules at no additional cost. Working on the students own equipment is a great advantage often overlooked when teaching drums. All that is required for a beginner student is a pair of drum sticks and a practice pad! I will provide all additional materials for our lessons.

Jared is a fantastic teacher and has a gift for making you feel encouraged yet showing you how to improve at the same time. The drum lesson I took was probably the best musical lesson I have ever taken.

Jared Chontos is a very well rounded musician, and an excellent drum teacher. He is very patient, and very good at explaining things. I am by no means a drummer, and I have problems with rhythm, but he was able to teach me the fundamentals, and how to keep a beat and simple drum groove.

I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!
