In need of specific exercises to strengthen my voice, increase my range, and improve my tone and interval accuracy, I took a chance on takelessons.com for the first time and found Sergio S. in Mt. Juliet TN, who immediately began to help me with all of my goals. Lessons are efficient and effective because Sergio has a plan, knows how to teach the plan, and then knows how to make sure that I understand how to eliminate bad habits and replace them with correct singing and breathing techniques. In less than five lessons, I've already begun to see significant improvement in my voice.

Took 5 lessons with Sergio to get me over a playing hump. During each lesson, we worked on a specific area. Toward the end, we went over practice routine, recorded it and he supplied source material for reference. This helped me maintain rhythm, improve chord changes, and to generally have a better grasp of theory (it really helps for speedy progress in my opinion).

By any nature, you should always practice on your own as well, but he will guide you to what needs to be done to further your ambition of playing guitar, no matter the age (i'm 35).

About Missy M.

Close
Goodlettsville, TN

View Full Profile

Each student is so different! I will ask what you're looking to learn about and cater to the style that suits you.

About Missy
Missy is a multi-talented vocalist and vocal coach experienced in electric and acoustic guitar and piano. Since graduating from world-renowned Berklee College of Music in 2003, Missy has performed live with bands from the San Diego Indie Music Fest to CBGB's and as a solo·acoustic artist across the country, as well as teaching private lessons in voice, piano, and guitar. Graduating as a Professional Music Major, Missy focused on Music Business and Songwriting and uses this background·in addition to Music Theory to help her students to become well-rounded musicians. As a professional musician, Missy has worked as a back-up vocalist, acoustic guitarist (Katie Armiger, Cold River Records), demo-singer, and songwriter (Megatraxx, LA). Missy studied under top-notch vocal coach, Mark Baxter (Aerosmith, Goo Goo Dolls, Journey) and utilizes Baxte
r's techniques in conjunction with her own to help singers of all levels and styles. Missy's notable students include singer/songwriter Rachel Brown and Paul Mitchell from America's Got Talent ('Tommy Mitchell')
For Songwriting style, check out Boston to Austin (Co-written with Will Champlin of ABC's The Voice, Mike Verge)

*** Lesson Details ***
I am here to teach you at the pace that works best for you! Everyone is different and everyone likes different styles of music- I try to cater to that as much as possible. I will always set the expectation bar as high as you're willing to go.

For piano, when teaching in books, I normally go for the Faber! For guitar, various renditions of Hal Leonard, and for voice, The Rock and Roll Singer's Survival Manual. If you feel that you're better suited to learn primarily by ear or without the specific training of instruction books, let me know and we can pursue alternatives.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Great room setup for lessons with keyboard and instruments. Parents can sit in on lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Mark Baxter (Steven Tyler, Steve Perry vocal coach) method- geared toward pop/rock/country/blues.

I work well with all types of beginner piano and guitar players and excel with people interested in learning how to write songs, learn chords and fun rock riffs.

Missy is great! She has a unique way of understanding how I, as an individual, learn rather than cookie cutter teaching. She explains why we are doing things the way we are and how it will help me be able to play later. I'd recommend her to anyone and I'm looking forward to me next lesson!

If you are looking for a top-notch music instructor for voice, guitar, or piano, look no further!
My granddaughters took voice, guitar, and piano from Missy from the age of third grade through high school. I selected Missy due to her experience: classically trained on piano and voice during her formative years, studied at Berklee College of Music, Boston, toured the country as a solo singer/songwriter, and played world-famous and iconic venues, including the late CBGBs in New York City and the Bluebird in Nashville. You can find her on iTunes, and one of her students, Paul Thomas Mitchell (a.k.a. Tommy Mitchell) was on the hit television show, America's Got Talent.
When my granddaughters were young, Missy worked tirelessly to create lesson plans for my granddaughters in order to keep them interested in music. For example, if my younger granddaughter (3rd grade at the time) was unmotivated to practice in her workbooks at home, Missy would spend part of a lesson just talking with my granddaughter about what music she was currently enjoying. Then Missy would incorporate that music into her lesson plan. As a result, my granddaughter became once again motivated to practice. Missy makes lessons fun while still teaching technique.
I never imagined all that my granddaughters would learn and enjoy while studying under Missy. And Missy's work with her students does not end in her music studio. My granddaughters participated in summer band camps and performed at small local venues, all organized by Missy.
Although my granddaughters no longer take lessons from Missy, because they live out of town and are in college, we all consider her a dear friend. She genuinely cares about her students and keeps in touch long after lessons end.

In that time, I've played many roles alongside a wide range of established and emerging talent, from around the world, including band leader, accompanist, music producer, composer, arranger, co-writer, teacher, coach and mentor. Along the way, I have continued to pursue my passion for education, teaching private music lessons to amateurs, professionals and hobbyists from all walks of life.

Forty-eight (48) hours advance notice is necessary to cancel or reschedule any lesson. Otherwise, students are responsible for the full payment.

Caleb has taught me so much in only five lessons! I now can play 4 songs that I love, and I'm getting a great refresher course on music theory. He's super patient and sets very realistic expectations. I really like that he cared to ask me what songs I liked and would like to learn instead of starting with generic songs like 'twinkle twinkle' because it gave me more motivation to practice and learn. I can't wait to learn more!

Whether you're tackling singer-songwriting, accompaniment, pop/rock, jazz/funk/r&b, or even classical exercises, I can help you. I've studied piano/voice/guitar long enough to know what each kind of instrumentalist/vocalist needs. I'm well versed in a overview of all genres and styles, as well as specialized areas of study. As a writer, I'm also very familiar with coaching instrumentalists geared towards composition and arranging. If you're looking to improve your skills, I can help!

About Jake
I want to teach the material that excites students. After a handful of really crummy experiences with teachers who wanted me to learn a specific way, I stumbled across a music school in Philadelphia and a college in Boston that really got the principle of teaching what students are drawn to. Bruce Springsteen wrote, "we learned more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school." Although I don't agree with that on all occasions, there is something so special about hearing something that makes you tick and going, "ok let me listen to that again, and now let me figure out HOW I can do that myself." As a teacher, I'm flexible, focused, and also love to have fun with music. It's something that makes us excited and alive; there's no use in pursuing something you love if you don't equally enjoy the process of getting great at
it. So let's find what makes YOU excited about music, and let's figure out out to make you great at it.

She’s a multi-talented master of several crafts, and I’ve been so impressed. I’ve got a newfound strength in my voice, and I have landed more callbacks this year than the last three years combined. I also want to start Guitar, and I know she has a million happy students on that front too. If you’re in the Nashville area, pick her. Even if you’re not, she’s amazing online too!

I've been playing guitar for the last 15 years and giving lessons for almost as long! I have a degree in music from the University of Miami and am currently touring out of Nashville. I'd like to think I have a fairly wide range of musical tastes (jazz, country, blues, acoustic, gypsy jazz, rockabilly, rock, etc.) and I enjoy the different challenges that each of my students bring to the table. So whether you're just wanting to strum a few old favorites at home, or if you're on your way to being a Nashville pro like me, I'd be happy to help you along your musical journey!

About Matthew
I picked up the guitar (at my father's encouragement) back in 2003 and never quite turned back! Originally from Kansas City, MO, I first got regular exposure playing in my high school's jazz band and in various other jazz groups, and was lucky enough to study extensively with local guitarists Rod Fleeman and Danny Embrey. I still make occasional trips back to my hometown to perform and record, and played on a couple of records with the KC-based group The Matt Cook Collective in 2016 and 2017.

My next stop was the University of Miami, where I attended the Frost School of Music from 2012-2016 and was fortunate enough to study with John Hart, Brian Russell, and Tim Jago I played with my first Grammy winner (multi-instrumentalist guru Charlie McCoy) and released an EP with Big City Folk Band in 2015. In between school semesters, I performe
d with country and jazz groups in Kansas City and gave lessons at KC Music, a local music store.

In 2017, I relocated to Nashville, began touring with country artist Derryl Perry, and recorded and released my first solo album, Aces. In between tour dates, I've been enjoying the task of expanding both my teaching studio and my guitar resume in this growing city.

I have also taken lessons from Gonzalo Bergara, Dan Wilson, Lorne Lofsky, Charlie Hunter, Jim Campilongo, Randy Vincent, Greg Koch, Guthrie Trapp, Brent Mason, and many more!

Update: will be at the Smoky Mountain Opry in Pigeon Forge TN in 2018!
