I've had 2 lessons so far and I couldn't be happier. I'm been playing for a long time but I haven't really learned how to play. Sergio teaches at a nice speed and the information is really relevant to improving my ability to navigate the fretboard. I'm actually excited about playing again. Thanks Sergio.

About Christopher
Flexible teacher combining technical knowledge of classical, jazz, and pop/rock theory, sense of humor, and passion for helping students not just master their craft, but also find their unique voice and enjoyment with their instrument.

No single learning path works for all students, it’s about finding and reinforcing your strengths, and empowering you to solve your own problems. As my old cello teacher used to say, “I’m not teaching you how to play cello, I’m teaching you how to teach yourself how to play cello.” Providing students with the tools and guidance they need to practice and improve: that’s what I strive to do.

I have over 5 years of experience teaching lessons, including teaching seminars on songwriting and music business at Infinity Visual and Performing Arts and Jamestown Community College.

Between 2006 and 2015, I
played over 1,000 shows, both solo and as an auxiliary musician for other touring acts. I performed on over 30 albums and have composed for radio, television, and internet video series. I've been featured in The New York Times, on the CBS Evening News, and on NPR.

Max will not work with your needs, he will put a book in front of you and let the book teach you instead of him. Do not hire this person, a teacher is supposed to try his best to work with the student when it comes to teaching and not be stuck on their own way.

Max is an awesome teacher! He is very knowledgeable and patient which was exactly what my son needed. He was also very accommodating and accessible for times when we needed to reschedule. My son’s performance increased dramatically only after one summer of weekly lessons. Can’t say enough good things about Max.

About Zachary
Belmont University Class of 2018 with a Bachelor's of Music. I am a working professional musician with a solid grasp of multiple styles ranging from country and rock to musical theater and classical!

I am ready to jump right in to teaching you how to knock your very favorite styles out of the park as well as develop more general musical tools to help you overcome any challenge that might cross your path. We will learn to play music, read and write, listen, and use all the knowledge at our disposal to dissect your favorite songs and learn what makes them great!

I have a great love for music that I would love to share with students looking to discover what music means to them! Music has taken me all over the country, to theaters and to dive bars, on tour buses and in station wagons.

Still in my early 20s, but with lots of perfor
mance experience. I may be green, but I bring enough passion and energy to match any of the best teachers around, and I want to help you discover all the things music has helped bring to my life!

I am only able to travel to students at the moment, however, I am currently working being able to bring students to a music studio in my home!

Zelda is a fantastic singing teacher. I felt a good vibe when I read her bio. I started out doing a half hour lessons and changed it to hour long lessons on the first lesson. She has helped me advance in my skills. She makes it relaxing, right off the bat, when you walk in and she offer's you tea. She is very patient and helpful. I've taken five lessons and signed up for five more.

I had always wanted to see if I had any vocal talent whatsoever. I met with Zelda and she was patient and took me through the steps to check my range and abilities. I was very nervous as I had never sang in front of anyone before and she made me feel confident and comfortable as I stepped out of my comfort zone for the first time.
I will definitely go back to continue my work with her in the future when the timing is right! Thank you so much Zelda!!!

About Jerrica
I am a professional singer, songwriter, pianist, recording artist and touring dancer. I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Canada and now reside in Nashville, Tennessee. I received my formal musical training with an ARCT in Teaching with the Royal Conservatory of Music. My performing experience plus the formal training, has awarded me the versatility to make learning stress free and fun.

With my move to Nashville, I have been doing more songwriting, recording and producing for myself and other artists. I have an exclusive production contract with a top producer/engineer in Nashville, Grammy nominated Joseph Magee (Pitch Perfect, Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, Metallica, Whitney Houston, Etta James, Manhattan Transfer).

Unique for a young performing artist, I have enjoyed a balance in my life between science and the arts. At a
very young age, I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Genetics from the University of British Columbia, while working as a professional Polynesian dancer crossing the Pacific for numerous performances.

In the beginning of my performance career, I appeared as a finalist in the Voice of the Philippines and Canadian Idol. I then performed on the road in China, Philippines, Japan, South Korea, UK, Ireland, Hawaii, Polynesia throughout Canada and the USA. In addition, my voice has appeared in TV & Film.

As an educator, I’m proud to say that many of my students have won the highest vocal awards at International Music Competitions, scored high on their music exams and progressed to acceptance at top music universities including NYU, Manhattan.
I teach my clients in my creative and comfortable home teaching studio in Nashville and online. I work with singers, pianists, songwriters and young producers of all ages and experience levels. The instruction is tailored to the individual musical goals of each student across many different genres.

I am a firm believer that great technique is essential to every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

I met Jerrica through her chorale lesson and after hearing her sing an Ariana Grande song with such ease and brilliant technique, that moment I knew I had to start taking private lessons with her. I have been taking private vocal and songwriting lessons with Jerrica since December 2014 and it has been one of the most amazing experiences in music I’ve had. Jerrica has opened up so much possibilities for me by inspiring me through her music and supporting me through my musical journey. From her knowledge in music theory, piano skills, wide range in vocal styles to songwriting, she has helped me bring out the best in me. I began taking online lessons with her recently and it is definitely the same quality as our lessons that we’ve had in person. Jerrica taught me how be comfortable and confident in my ability and I am beyond grateful to have her as my coach.
