Your lessons will be about you. Understanding that everyone learns differently, I modify the material taught to the desires of each student. Whether you would like to learn how to play your songs, learn a particular style, learn how to improvise, or any other skillset on the guitar, I am trained, experienced, and equipped to meet your goals! Also, following each lesson, I will send you home with detailed notes, charts, videos etc. of what we worked on through a shared Notepad (iPhone) and/or shared Google Drive doc so that you're never left empty handed!

About JP P.

Hello! My name is JP. I am a Nashville-based touring musician with a bachelor’s degree in Commercial Music from Belmont University. Since graduating in 2017, I have had experience touring throughout the nation from hole-in-the-wall venues to sharing the same stage with an artist on Kenny Chesney's stadium tour. In addition to touring, I offer private guitar lessons. Teaching guitar is something I am very passionate about. My ultimate desire is that my students would have a similar type of feeling that I had when my dad put a guitar in my lap and taught me to play "Sweet Home Alabama" at the early age of seven. Whether performing or teaching, I take a lot of pride in understanding that my role is to simply make the artist or student better at what they do!

I was referred to JP by a friend and I am so happy with his lessons! I'm a songwriter and he teaches me in a way that makes sense to me and my craft. I finish my lessons feeling inspired and ready to apply everything I've learned so far about the guitar! JP is an awesome instructor!!

JP has been an amazing guitar teacher for the past few months. His style of teaching makes it so easy to learn during my in person lesson then practice on my own time at home. He’s patient and understanding and works at my pace. I highly recommend JP for anyone that has some guitar knowledge and looking to get better or to the person who’s never picked up a guitar. You won’t regret it.

JP is a phenomenal teacher/instructor and a musician himself. Has an amazing ear to grab any gtr riff, lick, or phrasing you want from any song you want to learn. He breaks down the theory into sections and steps, making it super easy to learn at your level and pace. He showed me how to find new chords within my progressions so I didn’t have to chase them up & down the neck of the guitar. Totally helped give me more confidence in my performance on stage. I highly recommend him to anyone at any level!

JP is a great teacher that I would highly recommend. I asked some friends if they new any teachers and I am grateful we connected. I have no prior musical training and as a beginner I was worried that I would have a challenging time getting started. JP understands how to teach beginners and pretty quickly I was playing songs. He keeps my lessons in an online folder that makes it easy to go back and reference after a lesson. Sometimes I’d forget parts of the lesson and it was a simple process to check the notes to see what I missed. This helped a lot starting out. I highly recommend working with him. Give him a shot!! You won’t regret it

Awesome guitar instructor!

I have progressed considerably more in a few months taking with him than a year and a half of being "self-taught". He is very thorough with his explanations during the lesson and then uploads notes into a private shared drive for you to keep practicing/progressing on your own. He will also tailor his teaching to your learning style to ultimately allow you to play the style of music you like to play. I guarantee if take guitar from JP and put the time into practice - you'll reach the goals you've set and you'll have a blast doing it!

Regards,
Caleb

JP takes the time to listen to what each students goals are and shapes the lesson plan based on what & who you want to be as a guitarist. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced player, JP has the skills to meet you where you are and help you grow in your craft. He is very personal & professional!

I decided to take lessons to be able to play my own songs, and expand my knowledge on guitar to help with my songwriting. JP has gone above and beyond to make sure I feel confident in my playing and even is helping me learn about music theory and the Nashville number system. He is so helpful and has made this whole learning process fun! I would highly recommend JP for lessons!

Guitarist/Vocalist

I am grateful to have had experience touring with a variety of talented artists including Gabby Barrett (Warner Music Group) and Brandon Lay (EMI Records). These artists have given me the chance to travel and perform across the nation on tours with Kenny Chesney, Old Dominion, and Michael Ray to name a few. I am also a member of a three-piece American Rock/Soul band called Brother Maven where I have the opportunity to perform and contribute creatively to our own original material in the studio.
