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 Dani Rabin from the band Marbin.
I have worked with artist 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!
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
Absolutely can't ask for more. Cole goes above and beyond. He emails me extra material to check out during the week.
I think that today's lesson was fine and good to be honest.
super helpful knowledgable
Very Knowledgeable and motivating.
Kind and very accommodating. Also very patient, and understood my needs.
Tailored the lesson perfectly to the music we were trying to learn. Highly recommend!
Very pleased with my son's first class. He is very excited for many more lessons with Cole.
THIS MAN CAN SHRED!
Lessons are clear and easy to understand. Patience with progress. Have had multiple guitar teachers in the past, Cole is one of the very best. I am excited to learn more. Thank you Sir!
