As a performer, I have shared the stage with such recording artists as Herbie Hancock, Mary Wells, Jessie Colin Young, Greg Khin, Linda Cotton and C.C. Schilling, among others. For almost 20 years I worked in various bands and travelled extensively across the western United States while living in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I am a certified teacher with a B.A. in Music Education from Elmhurst College, IL and studied jazz piano with Mark Steidel and Susan Muscarella at U.C. Berkeley, CA. I taught music at Westchester Elementary School in Westchester, IL and Jane Addams and Lincoln Schools in Melrose Park, IL. I have been teaching privately since 199
I teach all aspects of piano pedagogy: reading, technique, theory, harmony, chord vocabulary, ear-training. I work very well with children and beginners, but also cater to older students. I live in Goodlettsville and I can make your life easier by travelling to your home. My rates are very reasonable.
I am available for performances, everything from weddings, parties, corporate events, restaurants, etc. I play a variety of music from jazz standards to pop songs; perfect for creating a comfortable and classy atmosphere.
If you like, you may also hear me play at 12 Stones Golf Course, “The Sandtrap” restaurant and bar in Goodlettsville, TN every Friday from 6-9pm.
Make 2019 the year you finally learn to play!

Jerry is a very skilled pianist and phenomenal piano instructor! Don't let his reasonable rates fool you into thinking that the quality of his teaching is anything less than spectacular. He thoroughly enjoys teaching piano lessons and music theory in many genres to people of all ages, paces himself to assist in your level of understanding, and makes learning to play the piano fun.
My eight year old daughter got a keyboard for Christmas so I decided to get her piano lessons to accompany her new instrument. I began searching for a local piano teacher who was reasonably priced, yet, also experienced with teaching children, and I couldn't have found a better person to do so than Jerry S!
My child had been previously diagnosed with ADHD and ODD so she tends to be very distracted, rambunctious, inquisitive, and defiant at times, however, it's never seemed to phase Jerry at all. He was open minded and seemingly very understanding of her condition. He is very friendly, easy going individual who has always been extremely patient with my child, despite her occasional outbursts.
In conclusion, I honestly feel that we are truly fortunate (and blessed) to have found such an amazing piano instructor, for an affordable rate, who's patient and keeps the student engaged, while also making it a fun filled learning experience to play the piano!

My name is Lexi and I am a Music Education student at Belmont University.
I started my music career when I was just 5 years old and picked up a violin to which many squeaky sounds came out. I went on to learn the Suzuki method and Mariachi music. Since then I have learned piano, guitar, ukulele, bass guitar, clarinet, and voice. As a music ed student at Belmont, we are required to learn the basics in all orchestral instruments (e.g. trumpet, viola, percussion).
I will be graduating this December and plan on staying in Nashville. I have attended several Music Education Conferences and recently attended that Tennessee Arts Academy for Elementary Music Teachers. I do these to foster Professional Development and to gain great ideas from Music teachers across the country.

I believe that music lessons should always be providing practical knowledge. As a student of mine studying music theory, you can expect not only to learn but truly utilize the information. You will become more aware of what is going on when you hear music. My main goal is that you gain greater control over your creative process and develop your "inner ear". I deeply believe that knowing music theory is an amazing tool to have as a musician.
I love teaching music theory: from the very basics to the farthest reaching topics.

I am passionate about a wide range of different kinds of music. Here are some of my biggest influences: Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Bowie, Yoko Shimomura, Steve Reich, Frank Zappa, and Mahavishnu Orchestra.

More about me: Since a child, I have been practicing music. I am fluent in many instruments such as guitar, piano, drums, and percussion. As a youngster, I played in many school bands, choirs, and orchestras. As a musician, my skills in music theory improved tremendously and I was able to write and read music.
During my teen years, my interest gauged towards computer beat making and recording. I bought a microphone on Amazon and started experimenting on software such as FL Studio and Audacity. With these softwares and my dinky little laptop, I learned the ropes of music production and engineering. As time went by, I invested in better equipment and improved my skills tremendously in recording, mixing and mastering. I attended College of Dupage in Illinois and obtained a Certificate in Audio Production. I currently attend Middle Tennessee State University as a Junior for a Bachelors of Science in Music Production.
I have recorded countless artists and have amounted to over 70,000 plays on my personal music. If you are looking for guidance to help you in reaching your music production goals, look no further. I am friendly and passionate about what I do.
