I was impressed by her passion for music and teaching. She had all the ideas in detail about how she would direct the lessons. I'm pretty sure she could handle the advanced level. I can't wait for the next lesson.

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!

Private Piano Teacher

I've been teaching piano for 5 years with students ages 4-70+. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play short songs, identify the piano keys and begin learning how to read music. Over time, you will be confidently playing with both hands and will pick up pieces more quickly. I specialize in beginner lessons and typically use the Faber Piano Adventures and Alfred books (for adults). I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

More than one year after starting with my daughter, Alexis is more than an instructor, she is an important role model and guide. Every lesson is clearly a personal and customized experience based on my daughter's ever-improving skill level as well as her unique learning style and learning challenges. More than even learning specific skills, i seee my daughter learning HOW to learn in ways she hadn't been willing to try before because Alexis asked her to do so. This has been a fantastic learning and growth experience for us and we appreciate all the effort, both mentally and emotionally, that Alexis puts into each and every virtual-visit to our home.

I am an older student and I was very self conscious and nervous. Edward makes me feel welcome and is patient and extremely helpful to me in making me feel comfortable playing the piano. I have learned more from him than any other piano teacher I have ever had. It is a joy to come to my lessons and learn from Edward. He is knowledgeable and is teaching me more advanced piano.

Nashville Venues for Piano Performances

By Julie L. - Nashville Piano Teacher

Nashville, Tennessee has been called “Music City” since WSM-AM announcer David Cobb coined the phrase in 1950. Although Nashville is typically associated with Country music, the truth is that you can hear just about any style of music here. There are many opportunities for anyone taking piano lessons in Nashville to get out and see a variety of live shows, or even perform for an audience.

With 58 official Live Music Venues (each marked a sign in the shape of a large guitar pick), many of the live music acts you will hear feature a pianist or keyboard player. You’ll find Blues at BB King's Blues Club on Second Avenue, and hear live Salsa music while learning to dance Cuban style downstairs in the same building. F. Scott’s Restaurant

...

is a great place to groove to a jazz trio while enjoying a gourmet dinner or “the Piano Man” will play and sing your requests at Maggiano’s Little Italy.

TPAC (Tennessee Performing Arts Center) features Tony Bennett in concert, Les Miserables, or Shrek the Musical. At the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, visiting classical pianists, violinists, percussionists, and singers can be heard. Free tickets for students are provided through the Classroom Classics program. Country music abounds at the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium, and of course Second Fiddle where you can hear live country music 7 days a week on Lower Broadway. You can find excellent music just about anywhere in Nashville, from artists like Lady Gaga and Keith Urban playing downtown at the Bridgestone Arena, to singer-songwriters at the Bluebird Cafe, to showcases at smaller venues like 12th and Porter, or even undiscovered talent serenading passers-by on the sidewalk down Broadway.

Living here in the midst of so much talent can be intimidating, but we all have to start somewhere. As a teacher of music theory, singing and piano lessons in Nashville, I encourage my students to do what they love, follow their musical passions, and work diligently. I love teaching piano lessons in Nashville because there are so many opportunities for me and my students to be inspired by amazing musical performances and to perform in the greater Nashville area. For pianists, singers, or simply music lovers, Nashville is truly “Music City.”
