About Ree
Hey there!

As a Vocal Coach and Performance Coach, I am thrilled to help my students find freedom to sing in their own style, while staying healthy with good technique.

I specialize in working with beginner and intermediate Adults and Teens, teaching healthy technique, performance and confidence. Singing is a vulnerable thing, so it's very important for me to create a sense of safety for every student to feel comfortable enough to begin to explore their voice and self-expression. As a singer songwriter myself, I've battled with stage fright and know the frustrations it brings. That personal experience along with my work with abuse survivors, has given me a special sensitivity and understanding of the emotional needs of my students, enabling me to help them work through their roadblocks in life.

I have studied under some fabulo
us coaches over the last 20 years, who have taught Taylor Swift, Justin Beiber, Natasha Bedingfield, Hayley Williams and more. All of this I bring to my students with passion and confidence, knowing that they can truly achieve their goals!

Are you ready to get started on finding freedom in your voice? I'm here to help and am rooting for you!

~Ree

Ree is a very down to earth person and an amazing singer, even more so in person. I love the way she teaches, she knows what she is doing. I’m a very nervous person when it comes to singing, and she has techniques for relaxing and giving me my own space to be free and have fun. And through all of that she always stays professional.

Ree is an amazing instructor for my 7 year old daughter!! She has been working on her breathing techniques, vocal exercises and practicing her favorite song from Frozen! My daughter can't get enough and the lesson time flies by. Ree developed an instant rapport and is excellent at teaching to such a young (easily distracted) girl! Thank you Ree!!

Kept missing class without any heads up so I had to just wait around and hope he'll show up, ignored my calls and messages to reschedule, so I had to just get a refund from TakeLessons. As a teacher he is good, but very unprofessional behavior in terms of accountability and respect for students' time.

About Brittany
Brittany offers private lessons in commercial and/or classical voice, songwriting, music theory, and ear training. She graduated the commercial music program at Belmont University with a focus on voice, songwriting, and music business in 2013.

Brittany brings a unique skill set to the table, having studied and performed a range of musical styles with hands on experience in Nashville's music industry. Brittany frequently writes on Music Row with professional songwriters, is a demo singer in professional recording studios, and performs with her special event band, The Golden Band.

Brittany has years of paid, professional experience as a singer in several different settings, so her ability to relate to any student and help them truly understand and achieve their goals is notable. Brittany has performed as a solo artist in restaurants
and other public venues, singing country and pop music; she has also performed as a soloist in classical settings, as part of a duo in a wedding band, as a member of several choirs and ensembles, including a capella groups; she has also been cast in several lead roles and ensemble roles in countless musicals.

For the same price as your average voice lesson, you will gain so much more knowledge in the field of music while you sharpen your skills with Brittany! Each student is different, so Brittany clearly identifies each student's specific goals and designs a unique lesson plan to achieve them.

Was skeptical at first but that was quickly turned around. My daughter absolutely loved Brittany and I could see they hit if off from the beginning. The instructor was polite, friendly, very encouraging, and motivating. I was thinking this would be a short term deal for a life experience as a birthday present to my daughter but I see now that I may be in this long term! We're all excited for the next session.

Brittany is absolutely fantastic with my 13 year old daughter who has never had any vocal training before. We are five lesson in, and from day one, you could tell Brittany really knows her stuff. We have seen fantastic progress in such a short time. Brittany's knowledge, patience, enthusiasm, and own personal talent shine through. My daughter looks forward to each and every lesson. We were lucky to find Brittany and I highly recommend her.

About Chris
I excel at getting students to THINK FOR THEMSELVES on their instruments. Whether the student is a child or an adult, I strive to develop musicians that can become lifelong learners with a love of music as opposed to people who only know a few cool riffs on their instrument.
I achieve this by 1) individualizing lesson plans so that each student stays engaged and learns in the style that is best for them as learners 2) ensure that students learn BOTH how to play their instrument as well as the theory behind what they are playing. This creates a more well-rounded musician that is capable of problem solving on their instrument and being able to play in a variety of settings.
I have been playing music for over 10 years and teaching private lessons since 2014. My professional performance experience includes solo guitar gigs, rock ban
d shows, musical theatre pit work, dance band playing, plus various gigs in Nashville, around the Eastern United States, and even in Scotland!
I graduated from Belmont University in the Spring of 2018 with a degree in Commercial Music, so I have had the "conservatory training" in regards to theory, and music history, but before college I was largely a self taught player and am now a professionally performing musician here in Nashville. My primary goal with any student will be first to help a student achieve their goals, but ultimately to teach each student to think for themselves on their instruments so that they can go on learning for the rest of their lives.

Chris is an excellent guitar teacher with knowledge rooted in music theory. He'll not only teach you how to play the guitar, but he'll help you understand exactly what you're doing so you can play better, grow faster and comprehend more. His lessons are tailored specifically to the student to help you reach the guitar goals you're trying to achieve.

Chris is patient, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and flexible as an instructor. Even after only three sessions, I feel more confident in my playing and am beginning to understand musical theory that I hadn't understood when I began practicing guitar on my own. Chris has been great at blending theory lessons with technical lessons; he's also balanced well honing previously taught skills and learning new ones. Excited to learn more!

About Jackie
I am a professional pianist, singer/songwriter, and recording artist. In 2011, I moved to Nashville from Seattle (my hometown) to take my music to the next level.

I have taught hundreds of students over the past 18 years, from ages 4 to 84, and it has been my joy to see them blossom into music lovers and musicians who impact their world and create beauty with their talents!

I have a classical background but love pop, rock, indie, country, standards, Christian and current music as well as the creative art of songwriting.

Piano students can expect to improve week to week in their knowledge and playing ability and I work with each student to reach their individual goals.

Do you want to hone your songwriting craft? Let's dive in! Do you want to master classical pieces? Let's tackle them together!

Do you want to become
an expert sightreader who can sit down and play something you've never seen before? We can get there together!

Do you just want to be able to play Christmas songs when your family is together during the most wonderful time of the year? Let's get going!

From sightreading, to songwriting, to chord charts, to figuring out your favorite music from the radio, I would love to help you reach your musical goals!

Jackie is a phenomenal piano instructor. She is professional, energetic, patient, kind, and flexible yet consistent. My daughter was 6 1/2 years old when she started taking lessons with Jackie. We recently moved (when my daughter turned 11), and now we have to find a new piano teacher. Upon our move, we realized just how spoiled we were to have Jackie as a teacher. She makes all of her students feel loved and special.
Side note: it was fun during recitals to see how Jackie catered to her students' talents- some wanted to sing and write their own music, which she very much encouraged.

About Kacey
I am a voice teacher and singer/songwriter currently based in Nashville, TN, but I got my start in New York City! I was a vocal performance major at acclaimed LaGuardia High School in Manhattan, studying classical, gospel music, and performing in choirs across NYC. I continued my professional training at Berklee College of Music in genres including pop, country, folk, R&B, soul, & musical theater, and completed my degree in music business. I attained my voice teaching certification through New York Vocal Coaching in Manhattan shortly after. As my passion for voice teaching & vocal coaching grew, I started giving private voice lessons in NYC, and continued teaching when I moved to Nashville.

As a singer myself, I know that finding the right voice teacher is very important. Every teacher has different methods and has had different trainin
g and backgrounds. However, voice lessons with the right teacher will prove to be a truly life changing and fulfilling experience as you find your voice and develop your artistry.
