View Full Profile

My beginning guitar lessons are formulated to not only teach the guitar and how to play, but also how to learn to hear music and the patterns of music. Much like my piano teaching I teach the student the "hows" and the "whys" or music and the guitar.
They will learn strumming techniques, chording, chord patterns, scales, Accompaniment and stage presence. The student will be required to provide his or her own guitar.

About Gabriel
My name is Gabriel. I have been playing and teaching for over 25 years both piano and Voice. As a Music Major and Christian Education major at Johnson Bible College I not only learned the skills needed to be a musician but also how to teach what I had learned.

As a Student you will find that learning to play and sing can be fun and easy. I always make my lessons enjoyable and I add humor, games and other instruments to enhance your learning experience.

I am both a musician and song writer. I have a great time teaching and work great with both Children and adults. I love it when working with people and that "Light" comes on when they realize "I really learned something." I live for those moments.

I have worked with students of all levels. I even work with children with special needs. So no matter what you would like to
do with your music, play for enjoyment, compose music, sing, for church or professionally I can help you get there.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lessons I teach are fun and educational. No matter who you are I am able to teach you.
I do not teach traditional piano. Why? Because most people are unable to play this style due to issues with eye hand coordination. The Method I teach "Chord Percussion Style" teaches a strong foundation in piano basics backed by a Strong Music Theory base. I have yet to find anyone who has not been able to learn with this method.
For voice I teach natural voice as opposed to Head Voice. This allows the student to learn to sing in a solo or group setting. You will be amazed at the difference a few adjustments can make in your voice. So as you continue your lessons with us you will see constant improvement.
On top of Voice and Piano I can help you learn to write your own music. Using the theory that you use you will learn to start to piece music together.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard - Roland Weighted Keys
Amplifier
Bongos
Guitar

*** Specialties ***
I teach Chord Percussion Style which is based on the use of chords and strong piano fundamentals and mixed with in-depth Music Theory and percussion technique. Super Fun for all ages!

Caleb has taught me so much in only five lessons! I now can play 4 songs that I love, and I'm getting a great refresher course on music theory. He's super patient and sets very realistic expectations. I really like that he cared to ask me what songs I liked and would like to learn instead of starting with generic songs like 'twinkle twinkle' because it gave me more motivation to practice and learn. I can't wait to learn more!

I teach a wide variety of guitar styles on both acoustic and electric guitar. I’ve played professionally for over a decade and have performed with groups playing styles ranging from folk, country, and rock, to blues, jazz, reggae, and more. I can teach you how to read music and feel confident playing whichever style or styles you’re interested in. In addition, I play and teach lap steel, slide guitar, and pedal steel.

I’ve had lots of experience teaching and strive to inspire creativity and individuality while focusing on accuracy and technique. I cater my lessons to the needs of each individual student, your goals on the instrument, and prioritize both fulfillment and enjoyment of music as well as your skill and ability with your instrument.

Ph.D., B.M. I have been teaching music lessons to students of all ages for over 15 years, including private lessons and undergraduate courses. I thoroughly explore all aspects of each exercise or song that I present to my students, highlighting the most important elements and takeaway points. Through a combination of playing songs, music theory, ear training, and personally tailored exercises to fit your needs, we will help you cultivate your instrumental "voice" and playing style. Acoustic or electric.

About Timon
Hi! I am a professional musician, songwriter, and academic living in Nashville. I have a Ph.D. and have been teaching and playing music for nearly 20 years. I teach a wide variety of methods and find what works for each of my students. All of your lessons are personally tailored just for you and your musical or learning needs. Want to hear from my current and recent students? I'm happy to provide references upon request.

Whether you want to learn some of your favorite songs, learn how to keep up with your musical friends, or explore advanced concepts in music theory and ear training, I can help you! I teach all popular and folk styles, from the classics to present day hits and top 40. Please note that I teach all skill levels in GUITAR, music theory, songwriting, and ear training. For MANDOLIN, I am only offering beginner and entry-lev
el lessons.

About me: I am a touring and studio musician as well as a songwriter. As a writer for Terrorbird Media, I write for songs for television shows, commercials, movies, and other performing artists.

Timon is a great guitar teacher. He balanced my request to do both a music structure learning (scales, chord construction) with actually playing tunes. The look that crossed my face when we started with Crazy Train must have been hilarious; he broke down what I thought was an impossible guitar tune and integrated scales into the lesson. Beyond technical knowledge and teaching ability he's just a good guy to spend time with and knows how to make lessons a lot of fun. 10/5 stars.

Timon is an amazing teacher! He takes the time to structure the lesson around exactly what I need. His easy-going approach makes learning fun and keeps me excited to continue to grow. His skills range past Mandolin. At times he will play guitar while I play mandolin which helps me learn how to work with other instruments! You will not regret lessons with Timon!

Timon is a really great guitar teacher. I am an older student who has had some previous musical education in other instruments. Timon is able to understand my goals and customize the learning plan and approach to meet me at my current level of skills and understanding. 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 look forward each week to the learning process. I definitely believe I will be a much better, more well-rounded guitar player working with Timon than I would be with other teachers that I have met.

Nashville, TN

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
My goal is to get students to think for themselves on their instruments. Whether the student is a child or an adult, I strive to develop musicians that can become lifelong learners with a love and knowledge of music as opposed to people who only know a few cool riffs on their instrument.
I achieve this by 1) individualizing lesson plans so that each student stays engaged and learns in the style that is best for them as learners 2) ensure that students learn BOTH how to play their instrument as well as the theory behind what they are playing. This creates a more well-rounded musician that is capable of problem solving on their instrument and being able to play in a variety of settings.
I have been playing music for over 10 years and teaching private lessons since 2014. My professional performance experience includes solo guitar g
igs, rock band shows, musical theatre pit work, dance band playing, plus various gigs in Nashville, around the Eastern United States, and even in Scotland!
I graduated 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, and music history, but before college I was largely a self taught player and am now a professionally performing musician here in Nashville. My primary goal with any student will be first to help a student achieve their goals, but ultimately to teach each student to think for themselves on their instruments so that they can go on learning for the rest of their lives.

Even after only three sessions, I feel more confident in my playing and am beginning to understand musical theory that I hadn't understood when I began practicing guitar on my own. Chris has been great at blending theory lessons with technical lessons; he's also balanced well honing previously taught skills and learning new ones. Excited to learn more!

I've been happily teaching lessons to students of all ages for 4 years, and I'm so excited to continue that journey with you. My style of teaching is all about YOU and what you'd like to get out of it. I will help you build a great foundation of musical knowledge based on your personal music taste and your goals. Contact me today, let's get started!

About Carrie
Carrie Schneider is a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter living in Nashville, TN by way of Minnesota. As a lover of all genres of music, her wildly unique style spans from classic and elegant Americana, to dark and thoughtful electronic-dream-pop.
Carrie got her start in the music industry as an intern for Rockhouse Studios in Saint Joseph, MN, under the guidance of sound engineer Jeff Engholm. It was there she harvested her love for audio production and sound engineering while working with and observing industry professionals like Nicholas David (of The Voice), Bobby Vee, Teague Alexy (Hobo Nephews Of Uncle Frank), Collective Unconscious, and The Vees.
In 2006, Schneider moved to Chicago to join the band Lindbergh, during that time she toured the country and played extensively at some of Chicago’s premier venues. In 2009 she moved b
ack to her home in Minnesota where she worked as a performer, producer, songwriter, and teacher. Now newly transplanted to Nashville, she works as a singer-songwriter and music instructor. One of the most important things she has learned throughout her musical adventures and experiences is to treat your craft with respect. Harvest your talents by feeding them passion, creativity, tremendous effort.
As a teacher, Schneider loves to connect with people of all ages through music. She believes anything is possible with hard work, patience, and a smile, and she loves to break the rules and get creative once in a while – however, “In order to break the rules, we must learn them first.”

As Yoda told Luke, “Pass on what you have learned.” I’ve taught for 5 years now, and can say I’ve never had a student turn to the dark side!

I love teaching guitar. I’ve devoted so much of my life to learning this instrument, and it is awesome to help others find their way. Whatever your goals may be - learning songs, writing your own, playing solos/improvising, etc - I can help you get there, and we’ll have fun figuring out how to improve and define your style!

I have taught private and group lessons since 2013 for an age range from 5 to 65. I specialize in acoustic blues, bluegrass, and country, but have taught students pop, classic rock, funk, and r&b as well. You choose the style and an electric or acoustic guitar (or both), and I will create a curriculum based on your interests.
