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.

About Jamie
Hello,
My name is Jamie and I'm offering guitar lessons in and around Nashville. I'm a professional musician and guitar teacher, fluent in jazz, rock, country, blues, folk styles and more. I teach lessons out of my home studio in Nashville. I live in a quiet family neighborhood and there is a sitting/waiting room attached to the studio should parents of younger students wish to stay during a lesson.
I teach electric and acoustic guitar, as well steel guitar and slide. My teaching goals are catered to each individual student to help them get what they want from their lessons, whether that's learning to accompany themselves, learn their favorite songs, or write their own!

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've been playing guitar for 30 years. I have been an active songwriter/performer for 20 years. I teach in plain English and get results quickly. Basics, fundamentals and even advanced theory is great but if you don't feel musical you aren't having fun and why else would anyone do this? More than anything else learning and playing guitar should be fun.

About Joel
I am a fan of a wide variety of music. I am especially fond of music that provides a structure for improvisation and the unexpected results that can arise when musicians allow themselves to explore their instruments without the restrictions that typically more formulaic styles impose. However, I also enjoy music that is incredibly orchestrated and requires exact mechanics and pristine technique. Most of all, I need music to feel generous toward the listener or I lose interest very quickly. Music is a gift. It can change your life if you let it. If you are adventurous and willing to challenge yourself you can find all the treasures of the universe in the mastery of an instrument. Did I mention its a lot of fun? Pick me, you wont be disappointed.

He is not about memorizing songs/riffs, but is all about getting you to develop your own relationship with the guitar and 'listen'. A great experience overall!

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 excel at getting 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 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 gigs, rock ban
d 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.

Chris is patient, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and flexible as an instructor. 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!

Do you want to play exactly what you want right away? Good! That is what I aim to do with all of my students. I want to know what you want to be able to do with your instrument and then that will guide us through the learning process.

If I specialize in anything it is helping my students connect the dots of music. From the ear, to the mind, to the fingers.

First and foremost, though, I think that finding the right teacher for you is important. You have to develop a solid relationship. Liking your teacher cannot be overstated for most people to make progress. If we get on well then the sky is the limit!

About Hudson
Hello!

My name is Hudson and I have been playing guitar for over 15 years! Music is my passion and if you are looking for someone to help you make sense of this wonderful thing called music and express that on the guitar then I want to help you.

I grew up in Southern California where I picked up the guitar at age 15. Mostly because my dad listened to a lot Santana and Led Zeppelin. After digging to classic rock and hard rock (from the 60's to the 90's) I got into all of the guitar heroes (Satriani, Vai, Malmsteen, Rhoads, Wylde, Gilbert, etc..) Then I found country guitar and have been digging into that the last few years.

If you love guitar and music in general and want to increase your technique, theory knowledge, or any of the ins and outs of playing with a band, or even what type of pick to use then I would love to help y
ou!

All my best,

Hudson

Hudson is an extremely patient teacher. His passion for music shows through the way he teaches. Having never picked up a Guitar before, by the end of the hour I was sharing the same dedication Hudson has for music. My biggest issue has always been coordination with my fingers and hands. He taught me how to be patient with myself and pay close attention to the placement of my fingers. I would highly recommend Hudson, he will definitely help you reach your goals with music and make you an overall better guitar player!

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.
