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

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

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!!
Brent
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.
Mason
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!

I learned the bass guitar when I began listening to rock music. I would often double on bass and sax. I have a Hohner, a Stingray V and a DP Custom 5 string and plenty of stage experience.

About Hayes

I've played sax for 27 years, bass for 22, and taught many students and performed with a variety of acts. I studied music and education at Kent State University, obtaining a bachelor's degree in 2006. Musical instruction is therapeutic for some, for for others it can be a journey to some destinatio

Hayes is super helpful and encouraging. I walked in feeling a little intimidated because I haven't really played in 30 years. He made me feel very comfortable and motivated. Good first lesson.
George
As a middle-aged guy who has played drums all my life, I wanted to add the bass guitar to my repertoire. Hayes is exactly the right guy and was able to show me how to get off to a quick start and then be able to add to my skills as I keep playing. I would recommend him highly!

I have over 10 years of vocal training, in classical, musical theater, pop and jazz. I graduated Belmont University in 2015 with a degree in Commercial Voice. Not only can I teach you all about the voice & anatomy, I can give you a great foundation for music theory and songwriting. I want to teach you to have the most natural, best sound your voice can produce without getting worn out. Additionally, I want to teach you how to properly run your own sound at a gig and know the foundations of running your own rehearsals/band.

Anna did a wonderful job. Louis, my eighteen year old son, learned a great deal of voice basics and really enjoyed the experience. He plans on taking more lessons in the future from Anna. I highly recommend her for any level student who is seeking excellent and personalized voice training.

Anna is a wonderful teacher! This is my first experience taking singing lessons, and she has been so patient with me, and I have already learned so much in just two lessons. She is very knowledgeable about the voice and gives clear, easy-to-follow instruction. I'm looking forward to continuing learning from her!

Hi! My name is Leila. I played the lead role (Kim) in the New York Broadway production of the musical, Miss Saigon. I have been teaching Voice for the past 20 years. I teach technique, articulation and performance. I am open to teach all styles of music. I teach all ages although I believe 10 years old is a good age to start (depending on the maturity of the young student). I have taught all ages from 7 all the way up to 65.

Leila played the lead role in the Broadway production of the musical Miss Saigon. "Leila acts and sings compellingly." - John Simon, New York Magazine Leila teaches technique, performance and audition preparation. She also works with various styles of music including Broadway and Pop. Le

I feel very lucky to have worked with Leila. She is kind, compassionate, non-judgemental, creative and very experienced. She will support you and she will challenge you...she is on the journey with you all the way. I highly recommend her!
Maryl
A few years ago I was fortunate enough to take a vocal workshop in Paris, France where Leila was one of the instructors. Her guidance during that class is what prompted me to take private lessons with her.

Studying with Leila has been an amazing experience – she has a rare combination of coaching for vocal technique/mechanics as well as for performance and interpretation. Since studying with her the past year, there have been noticeable results – I have gone from being a newbie singer to a confident performer who now sings in the Paris open mic scene.

With Leila moving from Paris to Los Angeles I truly miss the in-person weekly lessons…the good news is that via SKYPE you can still take lessons with her to continue your growth as a vocalist. Leila is truly a gifted teacher and coach – I have learned so much from studying with her. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Amy
I've first taken lessons from Leila back in 2008 or 2009. She recently moved back to CA from Paris and now I am excited to be continuing lessons with her. Her techniques have made my voice stronger. She gives excellent demonstrations, hand motions, and analogies that explain each technique in a compressible manner. Leila is versatile in teaching a wide range of genres, from classical to R&B/ pop to Broadway. She is very personable, kind and very knowledgeable. It is an honor to have a Miss Saigon Broadway alum as my teacher!

I like to use Fast Track by Hal Leonard Book 1 it is an easy book to learn from. You learn your notes on all 6. Why because it is important to read music just as it is to play the guitar. Learn your favorite songs. Learn strumming patterns. Strumming is hard so it takes a bit. And yes your FINGERS will be sore for a while but you will survive!!!!

Suzan is a good piano teacher; my doubter was accepted to good music based school after only a short time preparation with Suzan for an audition. She is always pleasant to work with, highly knowledgeable and very professional. If my daughter continues the lesson with her, she will be perfect playing the piano or even be a teacher herself.

"Rina started teaching my now 11 year old daughter piano almost three years ago. She recently started teaching my daughter clarinet.. Rina is not only knowledgable about teaching music but is able to teach in a learning style that works best for my daughter. Rina has patience and at the same time is very encouraging! She gives positive reinforcement which helps my daughter want to learn more. She has been very accommodating to my daughters musical needs. When my daughter requested clarinet lessons to strengthen her playing for her school band, Rina was more than willing to teach her in the same positive style she taught her piano. I highly recommend Rina !

Trying to find a talented vocal coach for a High School student that has limited time to practice is a challenge. Alex came highly recommended so we eagerly reached out to him and thankfully we did. Alex quickly connected with Tyler and I could see improvements in his vocals almost immediately. I appreciated his commitment and professionalism. Alex was also available to accompany Tyler on the piano at various auditions. Overall fantastic!"

5 Excellent Sight Reading Exercises for Singers

Unless you're a career-chorister, the concept of sight reading music is probably going to at best make you slightly nervous, and at worst paralyze you with fright. However, at some point, probably when you join a choir or perhaps go to an audition, you're going to have to face that hurdle. Sight reading comes easier to some singers than others, but it's not some mythical task akin to retrieving a golden fleece; sight-reading, even for the more able, is a learned skill, and there are several sig …

How to Play Slide Guitar (A Step-By-Step Guide for Beginners)

The use of a slide is an interesting concept on the modern steel-string guitar. The ability to use a hard object around one’s finger, such as a broken glass bottle neck, sounds bizarre to a player who has never heard of this technique before. Slide guitar is commonly heard in blues music and it involves pressing an object into the strings to create glissandos (slides) and vibrato to emulate a human voice. In this article we will discuss the origins and playing style of this unique technique, …
