Guitar is an essential instrument for understanding how music works. Plus, with knowledge of just a few chords, you'll be able to write your own songs!

About Kyle
Having been a musician his whole life, and a bassist since the time he was 15 years old, Kyle elected to attend Berklee College of Music on partial scholarship after graduating high school. This allowed him the opportunity to study with the likes of Whit Browne and Anthony Vitti. Summer breaks from school allowed Kyle to complete professional contracts as a working bass player, including playing in Hersheypark’s “Frontier Frenzy” (2010), Holland America Cruiseline’s “The Neptunes” (2011), and Boston’s “The Honeymooners” (2012). After graduating Berklee Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Music Education (December 2012), Kyle decided to move from his childhood home in Connecticut to Nashville, TN to further his career as a bassist and teacher.
Once he arrived in Nashville, he was immediately picked up by the Ashley Buchart Band as their tour
ing bass player. While touring full-­‐time with Ashley, he also filled his days “off” by playing gigs with artists such as Stephanie Quayle, Jake Clayton, Nick Cross, and Shannon Selig. He is currently using his extensive professional playing experience as a tool to teach meaningful life and playing lessons to his pupils in the Nashville area!

My main teaching philosophy is to always have the underlying fundamentals in mind. Of course, whenever I start a new subject with my students, it is in an effort to better their playing and move them towards their goals. But while doing so, the fundamentals must always be there. After all, the busiest professional players have the best fundamental technique, precision, and musicality! Overall, though, music makes people happy because it is fun, and I never overlook the importance of that fact!

*** Lesson Details ***
The first thing I like to hear from students is what their goals are while taking lessons. Do you want to become a professional musician? Do you want to be able to play with your friends in a band? Are you looking to perform at your local church with a group of musicians? These student-specific goals will help to drive what we will work on during your lessons. Together, we can reach your goals!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide my own bass/guitar, amplifier, cables, etc. I will also have a pencil and paper, and manuscript paper. I expect the student to have their own amplifier (if necessary) and bass/guitar. They should also have pencils, paper, and manuscript paper.

*** Specialties ***
My lessons center around getting a student prepared to play professionally. I believe that the best way to play professionally is to be as well-rounded as possible. So, my lessons target a wide variety of music styles and technical abilities on the bass/guitar, all while having fun!

Kyle is a great bass teacher. He always made sure that I understood the material and what I was supposed to practice during the week. I progressed more with Kyle than with either of my prior 2 teachers. He also always has a smile on his face! Take lessons from Kyle!

Kyle was great!

I just took my first guitar lesson with Kyle and he was awesome. Very patient, even when I got frustrated with myself. He taught me how to solo on the blues during my very first lesson and got me using a pick for the very first time. Kyle's lesson was engaging and enjoyable.

Playing guitar is fun!! I like to start students out learning basic chords to play along with simple songs a la The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty, The Eagles or whatever genre is of interest (i.e. If you want to learn "Let It Go" from the movie Frozen then that's what we will work towards). For younger students (ages 5-9) we work on starting with simple melodies like: Happy Birthday, Jingle Bells, Ode To Joy, The Star Spangled Banner, etc. while developing right hand (picking) technique, left hand (fretting) technique and introducing concepts like playing melodies on a single string, building melodies on multiple strings and using your ear to play. With intermediate players I introduce concepts like octaves, barre chords, pentatonic scale positions, major and minor scale positions, sliding pentatonic riffs and circle of 4ths / 5ths. I also continue them with learning songs, riffs, melodies and solos by artists and bands we want to emulate like The Bealtes, ...

About P.G.
I have been playing guitar, writing songs and studying music for over 20 years. I graduated from Boston College with a degree in Music composition and theory. I am also a recording engineer and write music for TV, film and advertising. I love to teach and work with students who want to learn. Basically, I like to make music and have fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I start working with new students by setting goals. My philosophy is to have fun and make music. Ultimately, my goal is for the student to be able to "jam" with other musicians. I picked up the guitar at age thirteen because I was inspired by Nirvana. I was quickly turned on to Jimi Hendrix, which eventually led to me discovering jazz, classical music, songwriting and eventually bluegrass. Music is a vast world and I believe in teaching songs that the student wants to play. So
I start by working on songs that are of interest to each individual student.

*** Home Equipment ***
Lessons are taught in my home. Seating for parents available. No pets. Bass and electric guitar amplifiers are provided as well as cables.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a guitar tuner and learning materials (i.e. music sheets and learning material). I expect the student to have a guitar, bass, banjo or ukulele to play. I also advise an amplifier for electric guitar students. I am able to bring a small practice amplifier to lessons at student location.

*** Specialties ***
On Guitar: Acoustic & Electric guitar, Rock n' Roll, Blues, Jazz, Improvisation, Merle Travis chicken pickin', slide guitar and music theory. In the world of audio recording, I am well versed in Logic Pro X. I operate Logic in my personal studio to write and record music for TV, film and advertising.

Outstanding Guitar Teacher

I've been wanting to learn to play the guitar for a long time and finally decided to go for it. I chose P.G.B based on his extensive music background and am glad I did. He's energetic, easy going, adjusts to your likes and learning style, provides excellent feedback, and motivates you be excited about learning the guitar. I've easily memorized a handful of chords and several songs already after only two lessons and we were even jamming in the second lesson. Can't wait to see how I'm playing in a month or two from now. I highly recommend him if you're wanting to learn guitar, he's makes it easy and a lot of fun. .

Great teacher and loads of fun!

I've been taking lessons from Steve for almost 8 years (that in itself should say much about his instruction!). He is able to teach whatever category of music to any person at any level be it acoustic, electric, or theory. I would highly recommend Steve for any age group and for the novice or experienced player wanting to improve. After the many years learning from Steve I wouldn't think of taking lessons from anyone else!

He has an incredible knowledge of music from both a theory POV as well as different genres, styles and music eras. He is really fun to work with and and is always supportive and encouraging.

I am passionate about seeing students grow. I strive to be energetic yet patient when teaching to create a comfortable dynamic in my lessons that encourages excitement about music.
I have been playing guitar for 9 years, and have performed professionally with groups playing styles ranging from jazz, country, rock, blues, funk, and even musical theatre. I am capable of teaching beginners as well as intermediate students.
My lessons encourage a strong knowledge of fundamentals, so that a student can continue to develop years down the road with their acquired understanding of music, but I also am also careful to tailor lesson material according to a student's interests, personality, and natural learning methods.

About Chris
I love the guitar, and so getting to teach students how to play something that is so dear to me is an absolute joy. I have been playing for 9 years and only keep getting more interested i the instrument. I love playing everything from jazz to country, to finger-style, to blues and used to even dabble in some metal. My professional performance experience includes solo guitar gigs, rock band shows, musical theatre pit work, dance band playing, and gigs along the east coast with rising country acts.
I will graduate from Belmont University in the Spring of 2018 with a degree in Commercial Music, so I have had the "conservatory training" in regards to theory, music history, and studying the guitar, but before college I was largely a self taught player and am now a professionally performing musician here in Nashville. That being said, I can
teach all of the "correct" notions of music from my academic background, but I also have real experience regarding what a musician needs to be able to do if they want to become a professional.
I do my best to make lessons relaxed. I don't ever want a student to be nervous for a lesson with me because they did not practice as much as they think they should. While I encourage as much practice as possible, I care more about a student realizing the positive force that music can be in their lives; music doesn't need to be a stressor.

In todays world of popular artists and music, I can help you hone your skills to get to a level of professionalism in the music industry. I am a classically trained musician, and have learned my way around the technicalities of music theory, but I also believe in having fun! So I will tailor our lessons to fit what style of music you enjoy, what areas you wish to get stronger in, and make sure you love what you create.

About Abbey
Hi, I'm Abbey! I'm a 21 year old musician born in Florida, having recently relocated to Nashville. I've grown up surrounded by musicians, as my family owns a recording studio in Miami. I have a folk band called "Love, Abbey", and released my first EP last year. I am moving to Nashville to continue working with producers up here, as well as work with the publishing agency I am signed with.

I am a classically trained pianist, and taught myself how to play guitar through the theory I learned with piano. Music is the most important thing to me, and I take it very seriously, but also believe in having fun with it! Classical music is beautiful and historic, but I do know that what people enjoy nowadays, is a more modern style. So I enjoy mixing the two, and incorporating classical theory in a way that makes me truly understand every instru
ment I play, and every song I write. Hopefully I can take you along for this journey with me, there is absolutely no better feeling than having a hand in the most beautiful thing on this earth- music!
