I am a professional guitarist from Kentucky. I studied music at Western Kentucky University from 2014-2017 with an emphasis in guitar under Professor John Martin. I have played guitar for about 15 years in a variety of styles ranging from classical, jazz, blues, rock, metal, finger style, and many others. I have also studied under the phenomemal jazz-fusion guitarist Dani Rabin from the band Marbin.
I have worked with artists and producers such as Chris Robertson (Black Stone Cherry), John King (Sixth Floor, South Bound, Sons of the Revolution, and John King and the Mud River Revival), Kenton Embry (Nashville Session player and touring artist), Russell Brooks (The Schools, 00 The Rabbit, Solo artist), David Barrick (Barrick Studios), Jason Simpson (Colter Wall).
I have an extensive knowledge of music theory which I can teach students, as well as ear training, harmony, and sight reading just to name a few and depending on the wishes of the student.
Students can have their lessons catered to the music and styles they wish to pursue. Every student has different goals, some really want to learn theory and read music. Others may simply want to learn to strum a few chords. Whatever the goal, I can provide the instructions to help the student succeed!

He teaches awesomely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cole is an excellent teacher! He's Very knowledgeable, professional and passionate . Goes out of his way to ensure that he's providing the best education possible. Would recommend!
Great teacher who helps you make connections in terms of guitar theory. Good for answering questions to help you continue to progress.
I've really enjoyed being taught by Cole. He is very patient and has been great at answering all my questions. I'm still a beginner but I've tried various methods of learning classical guitar and from what I've seen through the various methods I've used, I believe I've learned more information that is going to project me forward faster through Cole in just a few classes than I have through the other methods I've tried so far.+ Read More
Great lesson. It was my first guitar lesson ever. Cole was encouraging and helpful. Always positive, even when I struggled a bit with the technique. Highly recommend!
My son is a complete beginner. Cole was very patient with him as he figured things out for the very first time. Cole also was very encouraging throughout the lesson. We had technical issues signing on, again Cole was patient and understanding. He gave us the full hour, even though we wasted 10-15 minutes trying to sign on, which was going above and beyond!+ Read More
Cole is an excellent instructor. We set up a solid foundation where we can begin, and what is expected from student and instructor. Time was spent wisely with Cole finding my interest and desires of a guitar player, and music style I want to play. Cole is very professional and easy to follow. Best decision I made for lessons. I could not ask for a better instructor. I definitely have been referring him to my friends.+ Read More
