Re-imagine. Re-define. Re-authenticate.

This is the motto followed by Minnesota born Kyle Wesley; combining classic methods with modern soundscapes in order to stretch genres. Whether through production skills, engineering, or instrumental performances, the goal is always innovation.

Studying under multiple teachers and disciplines, Kyle Wesley's sound has been shaped by his education, stemming from Jonny Lang's teacher Teddy Larsen, to jazz visionaries Nick Fryer and Alan Carter (MSUM), to professional Nashville session guitarist Mike Ihde (Berklee College of Music).

Thanks to proper education and inspiration, Kyle Wesley has performed at many venues of multiple sizes. As small as local jazz clubs, such as Studio 222, unique as the community theater orchestral pit, and as large as opening for bands like OK Go in packed settings. No venue is too large or too small.

Currently Kyle Wesley is paving his way through Nashville and beyond by creating his own methods, re-defining genres, and creating vast soundscapes to fit any situation. Constantly furthering himself creatively and proficiently, Kyle Wesley has showed continuing dedication towards achieving success in production, engineering and musicality.

Lessons with Kyle Wesley can include anything and everything!

Guitar · In studio

There are so many good things to say about Kyle that I have no idea where to start!
Kyle is a skilled musician with great patience, knowledge and communication skills He cared about my goals and progress. His relaxed teaching style helped me feel comfortable with the guitar and now I understand music theory and know how to use it. Kyle is overall a great instructor and such a nice guy with the ability to explain even complex correlations in simple words.

Kyle is amazing! There is just no if, ands, or buts, about it. He has taught me so much about music, and has helped me discovered talents that have been dormant for as long as I could remember. I HIGHLY recommend him as your guitar teacher, and especially for people who live close to West End. Very close to Vanderbilt, TSU(both main and downtown campuses), and Fisk University. Kyle you are amazing, and it was an honor to be your student.
