View Full Profile

Learn from a 30 year veteran of the piano. You will learn in a way that no one else teaches. Chord Percussion is a teaching technique that grounds itself in piano fundamentals, Music Theory and some of the most innovative learning experiences.

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!

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!!!

I am a professional full time Trombonist. At the same time, teaching has always been a big part of who I am - I love teaching. My music career has taken me around the world and back but more than that it has given me a wonderful tool of self expression, and for that I am forever grateful. Other than the Trombone I do play the Trumpet as well, and I have over 8 years of Piano under my belt. I feel very confident teaching Trumpet up to advanced level, but only beginner level for Piano. I would love to work with some of the younger piano students not only on learning to play the Piano but also about the joy that music can give you!

About reut
Hello there!

I am a trombonist and teacher, with many years of experience teaching Hebrew as well as music.

As a music teacher I have worked with children starting from private lessons to young children beginning to learn, up to master classes in universities worldwide. I love teaching, and I feel confident teaching trombone and trumpet up to advanced level. For piano, I would prefer to stay with beginners and young ones only :) - but I promise you they will have a wonderful experience (and yes, I do have 8 years of piano studies under my belt).

As a Hebrew teacher, I teach both Hebrew reading and pronunciation and modern conversational Hebrew. My professional experience includes teaching at Golda Och Academy in West Orange, B'nai Abraham in Livingston, Central Synagogue in Manhattan and more, as well as many private lessons. In
the schools I provided classroom instruction, private and group tutoring and adult education as well as private instruction for the faculty.

I've been teaching piano for 26 years and my students have gone on to win competitions, perform in recitals, and play in church. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read music and as time goes on you'll be able to take on more challenging repertoire. I specialize in classical technique, and typically use Alfred series books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I am accepting new private students for piano lessons. I have extensive experience teaching children and adults of all levels for 29 years. I also conducted many large projects like musicals with children and they enjoy working with me very much. I have a PhD in Music and I'm a professor at Tennessee State University.

I'm very good with little ones. They think we play on the piano while I'm doing my job. My first aim is to welcome them to world of music and share my love of music. This is very important for me as once they feel and understand music, it will have an important place in their lives.

My sessions for ages between 4-6 will be 30 minutes most but I highly advice 1 hour of lessons for older students, teenagers and adults.

About Dr. Tem
“As an artist/educator who has a childlike soul, I both feel and sense life, and reflect this through my art; teaching is the best way to share and convey this understanding to younger generations. “Revealing students’ spirits with the love of music and helping them to use it with passion while making music” is my main philosophy in teaching.”

Dr. Tem

A composer and music technologist. Composing experience is diverse and includes composing for orchestras, and composing with computers for multimedia, computer games and film. Academic, research and work experience in Music Composition, Film Scoring, Music Theory and Ear Training, Piano, E-Learning, Music Technology, Computer Music, Sound Design, Game Audio and Game Technologies among favorite areas.

Dr. Tem is a wonderful teacher for any age and audience. If you only want to learn to play, then you will be satisfied. However, if you are interested in music as art and a form of expressing one self, you will find this is where Dr. Tem's ability to teach really shines through.

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 music for over 5 years and I love working with beginning and intermediate piano players and horn players of all levels. I realize that each student is unique and always approach individual lessons with my student's particular goals in mind. I have a basic curriculum that I use in order to build a solid musical foundation for my students, but I am open to working on whatever kind of music or repertoire that they may enjoy. It is always exciting to me when a student learns a new skill that helps them in their musical expression or achieves a goal (such as playing a song they really enjoy) that gives them a little extra fulfillment in life.

About Rachel
I am a freelance horn player with a passion for teaching both horn and piano. I have a Bachelor's of Music from The University of Arizona and a Master's of Music from California State University Long Beach.

I have been teaching privately and in group settings for over 5 years and really enjoy getting to pass on the knowledge and musicianship that I have received from my teachers on to the next generation.
