Always wanted to learn to play piano? Now is the time! My name is Jerry Seaberg and I am an experienced, patient, gentle teacher, with over 20 years teaching and performing experience.

As a performer, I have shared the stage with such recording artists as Herbie Hancock, Mary Wells, Jessie Colin Young, Greg Khin, Linda Cotton and C.C. Schilling, among others. For almost 20 years I worked in various bands and travelled extensively across the western United States while living in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I am a certified teacher with a B.A. in Music Education from Elmhurst College, IL and studied jazz piano with Mark Steidel and Susan Muscarella at U.C. Berkeley, CA. I taught music at Westchester Elementary School in Westchester, IL and Jane Addams and Lincoln Schools in Melrose Park, IL. I have been teaching privately since 1990.

I teach all aspects of piano pedagogy: reading, technique, theory, harmony, chord vocabulary, ear-training. I work very well with children and beginners, but also cater to older students. I live in Goodlettsville and I can make your life easier by travelling to your home. My rates are very reasonable.

I am available for performances, everything from weddings, parties, corporate events, restaurants, etc. I play a variety of music from jazz standards to pop songs; perfect for creating a comfortable and classy atmosphere.

If you like, you may also hear me play at 12 Stones Golf Course, “The Sandtrap” restaurant and bar in Goodlettsville, TN every Friday from 6-9pm.

Make 2019 the year you finally learn to play!

1000% Satisfied! Highly Recommend To Anyone!
Jerry is a very skilled pianist and phenomenal piano instructor! Don't let his reasonable rates fool you into thinking that the quality of his teaching is anything less than spectacular. He thoroughly enjoys teaching piano lessons and music theory in many genres to people of all ages, paces himself to assist in your level of understanding, and makes learning to play the piano fun.
My eight year old daughter got a keyboard for Christmas so I decided to get her piano lessons to accompany her new instrument. I began searching for a local piano teacher who was reasonably priced, yet, also experienced with teaching children, and I couldn't have found a better person to do so than Jerry S!
My child had been previously diagnosed with ADHD and ODD so she tends to be very distracted, rambunctious, inquisitive, and defiant at times, however, it's never seemed to phase Jerry at all. He was open minded and seemingly very understanding of her condition. He is very friendly, easy going individual who has always been extremely patient with my child, despite her occasional outbursts.
In conclusion, I honestly feel that we are truly fortunate (and blessed) to have found such an amazing piano instructor, for an affordable rate, who's patient and keeps the student engaged, while also making it a fun filled learning experience to play the piano!

Jerry is amazing! He gets down to the kids level and makes learning fun. I have just as much fun watching as my daughter has playing.

We absolutely LOVE Jerry! My 10 yr. old daughter has been taking lessons with Jerry for 2 years now and my 8 year old son has been taking lessons for one year. My daughter has advanced so much and she loves to play. She says what she likes most is that Jerry is very patient and he is very kind and understanding. My son learns in a completely different way than my daughter and Jerry has mastered both of their personalities. Almost anything goes with my daughter but my son loses interest quickly. One day Jerry showed up with Star Wars music. We haven't been able to keep him off the piano since. He will get up before school in the morning and practice. Best experience ever!!!

Jerry is very personable, and knowledgeable. He shows Nash new kinds of music all the time. They have really hit it off. Jerry is a good person, and he's become a friend.

My 9 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Jerry for almost one year now. This year we have added our 7 year old son. My children ABSOLUTELY LOVE Jerry. Last Christmas she was playing Christmas songs for the entire family and everybody loved it. He is patient and my kids look forward to each lesson. I would highly recommend him to anybody who wants their kids to have fun and learn something as beautiful as playing the piano.

Jerry has been great with my 9-year-old daughter. She is a beginner, and he has gone at her pace, and been encouraging without over-praising her. He is playful and friendly, and is consistently on time.

I am so glad to be able to leave a comment about Jerry S. I can't believe that we could be this blessed to find a teacher such as Jerry S.! we have been more than impressed. Thanks TakeLessons! You guys matched us up perfect! He has been on time for every lesson and gets right into the lesson with a joyful smile, making the girls feel very comfortable while they learn. Jerry is an inspiration to both my girls. He is an incredible teacher! I took lessons for 8 years and never looked forward to practicing or seeing my piano teacher like my girls do with Jerry. This means a lot to me as a parent who wants to see their children actually enjoy learning an instrument, and because of him....they really enjoy it more than they even did before. Getting them to practice now is not even a problem. This alone says a lot. He is very patient and kind. Best of all....Jerry is making piano fun for my girls while not missing any of the fundamentals of the piano. Oh! Even though he is humble...The man can play! You should hear him! Wow!Way to go TakeLessons! Thank you very much!
