About David

Since beginning his teaching career in 1974 David has taught 7000 people how to play guitar! Some aspiring only to play at home for fun and others to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. David F. has also taught advanced guitar and music theory to several professional musicians who already play other instruments fluently including Oscar nominee Scott Rogness, who co-wrote and performed the songs featured in the movie That Thing You Do. Scott had this to say about his study with David: "I studied with David for about 8 months. Although proficient on keyboards, a singer and songwriter; I had never learned the guitar. I knew a lot about the guitar by osmosis, but technically was green. David let me look at the guitar in a whole new way, using infinite variations on basic

I have increased my lesson frequency to two one-hour sessions per week simply because of my progress under David's direction. After only three months of weekly lessons, I can now read music and play while reading. David has introduced me to effective melodic soloing, has significantly improved my understanding of barre chords up and down the fretboard, and has convinced me to abandon "guitaristic" thinking in favor of really understanding the potential of the guitar beyond shape memorization.

For those players serious about music, who are willing to devote the time and attention required to improve, and who appreciate not only learning to play guitar but the theory and history behind the music, David is your man. I have taken lessons in the past, usually consisting of a teacher asking what riffs I wanted to work on that day. Sound familiar? Not David. Within the first two weeks, he has me focused on plucking the strings with more feel, using a pick and fingers simultaneously with my right hand, practicing scales to the tempo of a metronome while using the forwards and backwards technique, etc. He has convinced me that I can become as accomplished a player as I put my mind and heart to. His mantra is to work towards playing at the speed of thought, which, for the first time in my life, looks to be a possibility with time. Thank you, David.

Just had my first lesson with David. Gave a wealth of info now it's up to me but with his approach I know it will be all good. Have had other teachers but David is not only an accomplished player he is also is able to instruct and teach. Will write again after a few more lessons.

I have been songwriting for roughly 6 years. I have my students start with a thought/idea, and we go from there. Creativity and flexibility is key.

About Melanie

I have been giving voice lessons for the last 8 years. I have taught from elementary school students to adults, new/fresh beginners to intermediate. I am a great encourager and am eager to see you grow in your talents and abilities. I have been singing in church choirs and receiving private voice lessons since I was 6 yrs. old. With a BA in Music, I graduated from William Jessup University, emphasis in voice. From there I went on to teach at a Music Academy and then a music focused college known as "Instituto Canzion". I have received additional instruction from classes and private lessons at Musician's Institute located in Hollywood, CA and continue to gain teaching techniques from their professors.

Lesson Tailored to my Goals

Melanie did a phenomenal job of giving me tailored instruction to where I wanted to go with my voice. The tools she gave me in our lessons have helped me produce the strength I'm looking for in my unique sound. And I love her bright and joyful attitude as she teaches. Such a great experience!
Dustin B. Nashville, TN

Professional instruction for lyrical and musical songwriting.

What makes a good song? Everything and nothing. These lessons deal with the fundamentals of taking your ideas and formulating them into song material. Learn the basics of music writing and lyric implementation, phrasing, genre differences and characteristics, dealing with “writers block”, how to be a better composer and find unique ways to enhance creativity, formulate and manage ideas. Also learn how to navigate the music business like a pro and get your material out there!

Having the musical basics will help get your creative ideas out better. I can help you with that. Assessment of what is good and what's not is subjective, but I can help you with that too. I can't make you famous but I can help you write and build a catalog that you will proud to pitch.

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 ...

I am most happy to write a review for Dustin who I have found very professional, thorough, patient and fun to work with. His creativity to find ways to work with my learning methods, explain things so I can understand, and his wealth of knowledge and experience makes him a perfect teacher/coach/agent or a number of other skills in his portfolio. A high recommendation from this very satisfied customer. Thanks Dustin.

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 electronic 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. ...

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.

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!
Steve G. Nashville, TN

Songwriting lessons are taught with a good amount of music theory and melody focus. We analyze some of the GREAT songs of our generation and past generations, and we set out to replicate (in our own artistic style, of course) the poetic and melodic genius of those songs.

About Steve

Hello and welcome to my Guitar Lesson Profile page! Take a moment to look around. I would offer you a cup of coffee, but at the time of this writing, it is impossible to email a cup of coffee. So here' s a little bit about my services. I'll keep it short since you don't have any coffee to drink. I am a private guitar instructor in Nashville, Tennessee. I specialize in teaching popular music to kids, teens, and adults. I can also teach songwriting basics, composition basics, and home recording lessons. Lessons are completely customizable and the only curriculum I use is what you want to learn! For those of you who may live in Brentwood or Franklin, I also teach lessons in your area. I really hope you have a great day.

My experience with Steve has been great, he is wonderfully attentive and intuitive with our daughter who is a beginner with learning to play guitar. She is always excited for him to come teach her and beams with confidence after each lesson. I appreciate his timely communications with me for any questions or rescheduling needed. He lets my husband and I know how to support her with certain skills and practicing etc.
His demeanor and personality is both professional and also very fun and engaging. He's always encouraging our daughter to keep practicing and most of all, enjoying learning guitar! Highly recommend...

Both of my sons have taken lessons from Steve for the past three years. He not only helps sharpen their skills on the acoustic guitar, but has helped my younger son gain confidence and technique as a budding songwriter. He also spends time with my older son teaching him about recording technology. Steve is trained in many of the different areas of music that my sons are interested in and they look forward to his weekly visits. He interacts with them on their level and makes each lesson challenging and fun. We highly recommend Steve to students of all ages interested in learning more about music!

Steve does a great job with both myself and also with my 10 year old daughter (who struggles practicing). I love the ability to practice and play songs that I choose. I also like that Steve has a very easygoing demeanor in lessons so he keeps everything loose, especially when you're struggling as a new guitarist.
