Excellent instructor. Patient and personable with children and new learners.

Jerry is the greatest, with a particularly wonderful way of inspiring children with a fun and humorous spirit, alleviating anxiety, while promoting them to learn skills both concretely and even abstractly. Finding him on here, and experiencing his giftedness in teaching my nine-year-old daughter was a godsend. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

Hi! My name is Luke. I've been playing drums for 15 years and have been teaching private drum lessons for over 8 years. I love playing many styles ranging from jazz, rock, pop, hip-hop, funk, worship, Afro-Cuban, and classical. I graduated from the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music in Los Angeles with both an undergraduate and masters degree. I taught drumset classes at USC for two years and currently teach students from grades 5-12 at a public school here in Nashville. I have a full 8 microphone recording/broadcasting setup for online lessons along with two drum sets for interactive lessons and in-person jamming. We will work on groove, soloing, rudiments, independence, and reading, but above all we will HAVE FUN! Hope to hear from you soon!

About Luke

I've played drums for most of my life and the one thing I always tell my students is to have fun! If the drummer isn't enjoying it, the rest of the band will follow! Through music I've gotten to experience some amazing things such as working on the same bill as T-Pain for a short tour, playing in NY

Great first lesson!
Devon
Luke is a fantastic drum instructor! Not only is he super fun to be around, but he is a great teacher. He broke down concepts and techniques in ways that made sense and I learned so much from him. I would definitely recommend Luke for someone looking to take lessons!
Luke
Luke was the absolute coolest teacher ever. Not only is he a rad drummer himself, he has such a calm and cool demeanor. He just wants to share the awesome experience of playing the drumset. Luke showed me the right way to get started with the drums and now 2 years later I still think back to the advice Luke gave me as a beginner. He is an well-rounded musician and everyone stands to benefit from working with him.

"Shanita was very intuitive about my needs as a singer and even more so as a performer. I came with years of experience as a background singer, but with no confidence as a soloist/solo artist. She recognized my areas for improvement and honed in to work on those areas. Her teaching is truly tailored to the student and her experience as an artist/performer gives me the confidence that I am trusting my talents, and money, with the right person. This is my first lesson, but I feel at home and well taken care of."

"Jeff is a fantastic music teacher.

He currently teaches piano to my 12 year old daughter. Beyond the technical skills, what makes Jeff different than most teachers is his complete customized / personalized approach. In the world of education, a hot topic is how every student is different and the trend towards personalized learning plans. Jeff actually lives this philosophy. During his first meeting, he spent 30 minutes with me (the parent and person who is paying) understanding my desires, and he spent another 30 minutes with my daughter, understanding her goals and motivations. He then developed an approach that keeps my daughter engaged and motivated, no easy task for a 12 year old with ADD/ADHD.

He mixes teaching traditional piano theory with using modern technology (GarageBand) to create music, as well as focusing on he learning songs that she enjoys (pop music.) The curriculum that my daughter is following is 100% tailored to her.... there is no set music book that she is working her way through. Her practice time usually involves her making recordings of new pieces she is trying to create, as well as working on playing songs she likes. He is positive and builds her up during lessons, while also managing to be honest with her when she hasn't lived up to expectations (not so much about her skills, but about her following through on practice time commitments.)

Jeff's personality is great - easy for both parent and daughter to get along. I listen to my daughter during the lesson and she is engaged, which is the #1 goal. From my end, Jeff is priced appropriately for an in-home teacher, he is flexible when scheduling issues arise, and he communicates with me very well (usually texting for simple issues, and phone calls for more in-depth talks.)

Note: if your goal is a straightforward, traditional "skill and drill" teacher - where your child will learn the scales but be bored and hate piano - then Jeff is NOT your teacher. If your goal is to have your child engaged and enjoying the process of learning, and perhaps fall in love with music/piano along the way, and progress at his/her own pace, then you should definitely give Jeff a try!

Jeff is the fifth piano teacher my daughter has had in the past three years and he is by far the best, as measured by my daughter's engagement and enjoyment. We have had a variety of different styles (including skill & drill, rock n' roll, traditional, etc) and we finally found the right fit for my daughter. Last year she had a traditional teacher -- she learned a lot, she progressed a lot, and she hated every minute of it....begging me not to make her continue. This year with Jeff, the process is entirely different, the lessons and practice time is entirely different, the pace is entirely different (not quicker or slower....just different) and the love of music has returned to my daughter!

Will she become a professional piano player? I have no idea. Does she run to the door when Jeff arrives (versus hide in her closet which she did last year)? Yes, she does. For us, that is success and that is directly tied to Jeff being a great teacher.

I highly recommend him."

He is everything a guitar teacher should be...he tailors his teaching to help you reach what personal goals you want to achieve. He is also very supportive, and his feedback is always of the encouraging type. His knowledge of guitar,music, and theory is outstanding which helps him teach it to you at whatever level you feel comfortable at. Highly recommended."
