Since graduating from world-renowned Berklee College of Music in 2003, Missy has performed live with bands from the San Diego Indie Music Fest to CBGB's and as a solo·acoustic artist across the country, as well as teaching private lessons in voice, piano, and guitar. Graduating as a Professional Music Major, Missy focused on Music Business and Songwriting and uses this background·in addition to Music Theory to help her students to become well-rounded musicians. As a professional musician, Missy has worked as a back-up vocalist, acoustic guitarist (Katie Armiger, Cold River Records), demo-singer, and songwriter (Megatraxx, LA). Missy studied under top-notch vocal coach, Mark Baxter (Aerosmith, Goo Goo Dolls, Journey) and utilizes Baxte

*** Lesson Details ***
I am here to teach you at the pace that works best for you! Everyone is different and everyone likes different styles of music- I try to cater to that as much as possible. I will always set the expectation bar as high as you're willing to go.

For piano, when teaching in books, I normally go for the Faber! For guitar, various renditions of Hal Leonard, and for voice, The Rock and Roll Singer's Survival Manual. If you feel that you're better suited to learn primarily by ear or without the specific training of instruction books, let me know and we can pursue alternatives.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Great room setup for lessons with keyboard and instruments. Parents can sit in on lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Mark Baxter (Steven Tyler, Steve Perry vocal coach) method- geared toward pop/rock/country/blues.

I work well with all types of beginner piano and guitar players and excel with people interested in learning how to write songs, learn chords and fun rock riffs.

If you are looking for a top-notch music instructor for voice, guitar, or piano, look no further!
My granddaughters took voice, guitar, and piano from Missy from the age of third grade through high school. I selected Missy due to her experience: classically trained on piano and voice during her formative years, studied at Berklee College of Music, Boston, toured the country as a solo singer/songwriter, and played world-famous and iconic venues, including the late CBGBs in New York City and the Bluebird in Nashville. You can find her on iTunes, and one of her students, Paul Thomas Mitchell (a.k.a. Tommy Mitchell) was on the hit television show, America's Got Talent.
When my granddaughters were young, Missy worked tirelessly to create lesson plans for my granddaughters in order to keep them interested in music. For example, if my younger granddaughter (3rd grade at the time) was unmotivated to practice in her workbooks at home, Missy would spend part of a lesson just talking with my granddaughter about what music she was currently enjoying. Then Missy would incorporate that music into her lesson plan. As a result, my granddaughter became once again motivated to practice. Missy makes lessons fun while still teaching technique.
I never imagined all that my granddaughters would learn and enjoy while studying under Missy. And Missy's work with her students does not end in her music studio. My granddaughters participated in summer band camps and performed at small local venues, all organized by Missy.
Although my granddaughters no longer take lessons from Missy, because they live out of town and are in college, we all consider her a dear friend. She genuinely cares about her students and keeps in touch long after lessons end.

I worked for missy for over 5 years before going off to school. She is incredibly talented, an excellent teacher, and is constantly trying out new techniques that will fit each individual student. I followed her through multiple locations around Nashville, She was always very flexible and would find time to make up lessons either online or in person. Love working with her!

I am a novice vocalist. Missy is fun to work with and talk to. She gives vocal exercises and tricks, but explains the reasons for doing them, how they're going to help. She has allowed me to try a range of different types of music. My voice is getting stronger and better and my confidence is getting stronger also. I look forward to my lesson ever week. Missy is very easy to work with.

About Jerry
Always wanted to learn to play piano? Now is the time! My name is Jerry Seaberg and I am an experienced, patient, gentle teacher, with over 20 years teaching and performing experience.

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
0.

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, especially those students interested in jazz.

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 Woody’s Steakhouse in Madison, TN every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 6-9pm. Mention you saw me here, I’d love to talk with you.

Make 2018 the year you finally learn to play, it can be fun and rewarding.

Thanks,

Jerry Seaberg

We absolutely LOVE Jerry! My 10 yr. old daughter has been taking lessons with Jerry for 2 years now and my 8 year old son has been taking lessons for one year. My daughter has advanced so much and she loves to play. She says what she likes most is that Jerry is very patient and he is very kind and understanding. My son learns in a completely different way than my daughter and Jerry has mastered both of their personalities. Almost anything goes with my daughter but my son loses interest quickly. One day Jerry showed up with Star Wars music. We haven't been able to keep him off the piano since. He will get up before school in the morning and practice. Best experience ever!!!

We will choose a method that is fun for you.
Enjoy the music while learning how to play.
30 minute lessons are ONLY for students ages 8 and younger.
Adults are encouraged to choose 60 minute lessons or longer.

About Julie
I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (5 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise in teaching Vocal and Piano music, my knowledge of Music Theory, and my encouraging teaching style. I have been involved in making music since I was a young child, and I have been teaching private students since I was a Music major at the University of Florida in 1982 when a fellow college student asked me to teach her voice lessons. I have a Music Education degree from the University of Florida; my major instrument was Voice, my minor was Piano. I taught as a public school music educator in Florida, California, and Tennessee between the years
of 1983 to 1997. I taught private students after school in my classroom while I was a public school teacher, and from my home since 1997. My post-graduate continuing professional education includes Tennessee Arts Academy at Belmont University, Kodaly Pedagogy and Solfege Level 1 (vocal teaching techniques, do-re-mi, ear training), Orff-Schulwerk Music for Children Level 1 certification, Yamaha M.I.E. (Music In Education) Piano Lab certification. My professionalism and expertise are at your service. I will work together with you to insure an enjoyable and informative learning experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson in my studio would begin with a brief question/answer time with the student to learn how their week has gone, and how their music practice is progressing.

For PIANO LESSONS we begin with Technique including scales and dexterity exercises, then we play from the Lesson book and a Recital selection. I typically let the student play through the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to play the piece again. After that we go over the Theory assignments, and do Ear Training exercises. I am comfortable teaching from a variety of different methods courses. The methods course is chosen according to the student's interest. I never require a piano student to continue using books that are not inspiring. There so many methods courses available, that a student may always be able to have methods books they LOVE.

In my SINGING LESSONS we also begin with a recap of the student's week. Then we continue with Warm Up exercises to prepare the student's voice for the lesson. Then we study Sight Singing and Solfege Singing (do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do) to increase the student's listening skills. After that the student sings their selections. Like I do in Piano lessons, I listen to the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to sing the piece again. I am comfortable teaching many styles of vocal music including classical, Broadway, pop, rock, and Christian.

For MUSIC THEORY lessons, the study material is chosen according to the student's interest and age. Topics include notation, chord structure, chord progression, melodic structure, and harmony. I also incorporate Music Listening in the Music Theory lesson in order to learn from the masters in many styles of music. My Music Theory students will also have the opportunity to develop composition and songwriting skills if they desire.

My teaching style is structured and friendly, keeping the student's goals and interests at the forefront. I enjoy motivating students to reach their highest potential.
After 3 to 6 months in my studio my students will see improvement in their musical technique, ear training, music reading, notation, and knowledge. They will be preparing recital pieces for an upcoming performance. I provide two recital opportunities a year: in December, and in May. Most importantly, the student's love and appreciation of music will be growing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
PIANO lessons in Living Room: piano near front entryway, couch, loveseat, over-sized chair, dining room table, open space, end table with chair, parents may sit in on lesson.

SINGING lessons in Recording Studio: keyboard, recording equipment, desk, 2 chairs, music stand, microphone, private room. Parents may wait in adjacent rec room or sit in on lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson books, the students should provide their instrument.

I do have a mobile keyboard to bring for SINGING lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Kodaly Pedagogy and Solfege Level 1

Orff-Schulwerk Music for Children Level 1 certification

Both of my children have been blessed to be learning from Nancy. My son started piano lessons this year and just loves it. He looks forward each week to seeing Nancy and loves the incentive she gives him! My son is highly motivated to practice every day. They really have fun together and my son feels challenged. Nancy is also accompanying my teenage daughter who is performing a solo piece soon in competition. They are having a great time and Nancy goes above and beyond what could ever be expected with her generous time and expertise. I cannot day enough good things.

Hendersonville, TN
View Full Profile

I usually start beginners with a “method book.” John Thompson’s series are ideal for students who want to develop their classical chops. (Alfred, Bastien and Hal Leonard also publish excellent books for students who are interested in a variety of styles.) Regardless of a preferred style, I work with all students to develop a comfortable relationship with the piano, one which enables them to play without stress, strain or injury.

About John
You’ve surely heard the old refrain: “I took piano lessons as a kid, but I don’t play anymore.” That makes as much sense to me as saying, “I rode a bike as a kid but not now.” If learned properly, the piano can provide anyone with a lifetime of recreation and pleasure.
Hi, my name is John, and I am an experienced pianist, educator and music journalist. I am the Nashville Scene’s classical music critic, and over the years I have written about music for The Washington Post and National Public Radio, among other places. I have also been an adjunct associate professor at Vanderbilt University’s Blair School of Music and teach privately in my own studio. I am a very patient and nurturing teacher, but I am also methodical, which is a huge benefit for my students. In short order, they all become comfortable and confident at the keyboard.

He also adapts the pace of the lessons to the progress of the child to always keep things challenging. My son has progressed from beginner to accomplished player of Mozart, Chopin, and Beethoven under John's instruction. I highly recommend this teacher!

Whether you're tackling singer-songwriting, accompaniment, pop/rock, jazz/funk/r&b, or even classical exercises, I can help you. I've studied piano/voice/guitar long enough to know what each kind of instrumentalist/vocalist needs. I'm well versed in a overview of all genres and styles, as well as specialized areas of study. As a writer, I'm also very familiar with coaching instrumentalists geared towards composition and arranging. If you're looking to improve your skills, I can help!

About Jake
I want to teach the material that excites students. After a handful of really crummy experiences with teachers who wanted me to learn a specific way, I stumbled across a music school in Philadelphia and a college in Boston that really got the principle of teaching what students are drawn to. Bruce Springsteen wrote, "we learned more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school." Although I don't agree with that on all occasions, there is something so special about hearing something that makes you tick and going, "ok let me listen to that again, and now let me figure out HOW I can do that myself." As a teacher, I'm flexible, focused, and also love to have fun with music. It's something that makes us excited and alive; there's no use in pursuing something you love if you don't equally enjoy the process of getting great at
it. So let's find what makes YOU excited about music, and let's figure out out to make you great at it.

I had 12 years of private instruction in a classical manner and I can also play by ear. I like to keep students engaged by teaching in a more circular manner. Connecting the dots and showing how learning scales theory etc enables you to play the contemporary songs you love! I love all styles of music and tailor each lesson to the current knowledge and ability of the student.

About Mallory
My name is Mallory and I just recently moved to Nashville from Los Angeles. I had a roster there of 55 private students of all ages and levels. I am immediately available and I have extensive experience instructing at summer camps, musical theatre, contemporary vocals, songwriting workshops etc. For Private Lessons, I teach a combination of a classical and contemporary approach in all mediums: Piano, Voice, Guitar, Songwriting, Acting, Musical Theater, Audition Prep, Shakespeare etc. Teaching is a passion and a joy so if you're looking for a teacher who cares and will tailor each lesson to the individual student, look no further!

I have been teaching children and adults piano lessons for 10 years now. I have my master's degree in music from the University of Utah. I work mainly on classical music, but we can work on any type that you are interested in learning. Students for me have been as young as 4, and as old as 65. My only criteria is that my students be able to read, count, and sit for the lesson.

About Sharon
Hello everyone,

I am a mother of a beautiful little girl, and have been teaching piano for 10 years. I have a passion for music. Music helps children and adults to learn, improves grades, focus, and their ability to express themselves. In such a busy world, it is a blessing to stop and delve into music. I want to teach children and adults to appreciate this art and make the most of themselves like I did.

I started to play right before college. I then graduated with a master's degree in music. I play flue and violin as well, but my main passion is piano. Life is short, so I want to enrich my life and yours if I can.

Over 15 years of teaching experience, offering a tried and true method of learning to play within a few lessons by ear, also offering classical or both. If you want to be able to play the piano by ear fast and effectively, our proven method of over 25 years will get you playing your favorite music in no time. I also offer classical lessons, and many students prefer to take a dual track in order to train their ear as well as their musical knowledge. I would love to propel your student into a place where they can be a life-long learner so they can always improve their musical skills, even without an instructor.

About Elaine
Hola! I have been teaching the piano and Spanish for over 10 years, and love seeing how quickly we all can learn a new skill if we just have the right coaching. I'm a firm believer in teaching you HOW to learn first, no matter the subject. Many of my students become so proficient in the art of being self-taught, they soon don't need me ( which I consider an honor!) . Whether on the piano or in the Spanish language, I know we all have the capacity for more, and I'll help you get there. I'm a mom of 2 beautiful girls and a little lab puppy. My husband and I love our kids and our Southern life! Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
