I took guitar lessons with Chris Mattingly from 2003-2005 and found the service to be outstanding. In 2003 I was 15 and had very little music education or experience with any instrument, but nonetheless Chris quickly set me on a course that would change my life. Chris had a clever way of making the lessons fun by quickly identifying the music I responded to and finding the right songs within that style that I could play even at a beginner level. Realizing I enjoyed blues and rock, Chris took me from Chuck Berry to Hendrix and Clapton within a few lessons. I remember being impressed at how he could put a CD of Hendrix or Clapton on, and transcribe it in real time. But the service didn't stop there, teaching rock and blues was only scratching the surface of what Chris had to offer. In under a year Chris had taught me to improvise my own melodies, learn advanced musical theory, read music, and begin playing jazz standards. I also want to mention that as a great teacher, Chris was also very personable, and had a great way of encouraging the students (I also took a group jazz class under his instruction). Chris was highly qualified, having both a bachelors and a masters in music, and as such, he was more than able to garner even my obsessive interest with the instrument. By the time I ended my time studying with Chris, he had helped prepare me for college auditions in classical guitar performance. I can only presume that Chris has continued to hone his excellence as an educator and player in the decade since I studied under him.

Having been a student of music and the drums for 20 years I have had experiences with many teachers. Some were good and some were not so good, but I learned something from each of them. I am passionate about sharing my love and knowledge of the drums with students eager to learn. All of my lessons are made for the individual student and not just based out of method books. Method books are an important part of study, however I strongly feel that augmenting them with real life musical examples is essential for the developing musician. The musical experiences I have had throughout my professional career have been widely varied. I have played jazz at restaurants and weddings, original and cover band rock shows, concert halls, school cafeterias, living rooms, outdoor festivals, clothing stores, libraries, you name it I've probably been there sitting behind the drums! All of these musical experiences in a variety of genres give me a lot to draw from when working with and encouraging students.


I have been playing drums since I was 14 and have been getting more and more serious about it throughout high school. Last year I got into all state jazz on drum set ranking #3 in the state. Since then I have been working hard on not only my drum set ability but also my teaching abilities studying with my own instructor about what makes a good teacher. I try to make my lessons fun but challenging. All of my students in the past have said that the lesson is one of their favorite weekly activities and that they learn a lot, and I try to use this as fuel to be a better player and teacher. But all of that aside wether you are just starting on the set or are interested in jazz and do not know where to start send me a message and we can chat! I look forward to meeting you.


I offer live music for all occasions. I do recording by the hour. Lessons in guitar for all ages and levels are available. Bass ad drum lessons for all ages and levels are also available. I do vinyl records and have been doing the music thing for over 30 years. My physical location at 522 Washington, Shelbyville, Kentucky is open for business 5 days a week.


Some teachers teach exclusively from a book (usually a boring one, at that) but I also show students how to not just learn music, but create their own. Besides learning a variety of ways music is written, My students become good listeners as well, and can eventually teach themselves. It may put me out of a job, but that's part of the job!


Our faculty hold degrees from prestigious Universities including Manhattan School of Music, University of Michigan, and University of Louisville. They have appeared in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Tanglewood Music Center to name a few.


Alex Thompson has a strong passions to teach music. He and his team of teachers incorporate the best techniques for learning a new instrument. Students of all ages are welcome!


I do music recording and production. I record solo artists and bands, and produce high-quality masters for release. I have a home studio, and I think you will be most happy with the results. I also give drum lessons, and can do it on a half hour or one hour basis. Info about me: Dino English earned a Bachelor's of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, with an emphasis in Business and Music from Central Methodist University. Born in 1968 as the youngest sibling, Dino came up in a musically-oriented family. His mother studied vocals in college, and all his brothers play various stringed instruments. Dino was introduced into the world of recording by his oldest brother who owned and ran The Sound Factory recording studio in Tucson, Arizona throughout the 80s and early 90s. Dino studied drum set and percussion throughout college, playing in jazz and concert bands. During college and after graduating, Dino pursued a career in music writing and performing with bands. While playing in The Icons and Vitamin A, Dino wrote and performed original material along with covering other artists. He then went on to moonlight for many years in a Grateful Dead cover band, The Schwag, and jam band The Kind. Dino then joined Dark Star Orchestra in 1999, and has been touring with the band ever since. Dino has played with and/or recorded some of the world's finest musicians, and has appeared in such magazines as Rolling Stone, Relix, and Drum Magazine. He has written songs with Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter ("Run Mary") and film writer and director James Gunn (Scooby Doo, Dawn of the Dead), and has recorded musicians of such groups as Dark Star Orchestra, Grateful Dead, Phish, Robert Plant's Band of Joy, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Particle, The Sam Bush Band, Old & In the Way, Zen Trickters, Steve Kimock, Leftover Salmon, Umphrey's McGee, Frank Zappa band alumni, Disco Biscuits, St. Louis band's The Unconscious, and Blue Dixie. Musicians Dino has performed with live include: Bob Weir (of the Grateful Dead); Trey Anastasio (Phish), Mike Gordon (Phish); Sam Bush (Sam Bush Band, New Grass Revival); David Hidalgo (Los Lobos); Johnny Johnson (Chuck Berry); Vassar Clements (Grammy award-winning violinist, Old & In the Way); Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers), Gov't Mule, The Dead, Phil Lesh & Friends; Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band); Richie Hayward (Little Feat); Airto (Miles Davis, Chick Corea); David Nelson (The New Riders of the Purple Sage); Keller Williams; and members of the Yonder Mountain String Band, and Dirty Dozen Brass Band, to name a few. Dino has received his edification in the recording world by working along side many experienced professional sound and recording engineers such as Grammy award-winning engineer Rob Eaton, Grateful Dead sound man Dan Healy (who toured with Dino, running sound for Dark Star Orchestra), Grateful Dead engineers Bob Matthews and Betty Cantor Jackson, Cotter Michaels (Phil Lesh & Friends, Average White Band, Dark Star Orchestra), Cameron Blietz (Dark Star Orchestra), and his brother Steve English (The Sound Factory). Dino has produced and released the album "Shimmy Shack" with some of the above musicians, and he is currently working on more releases. He also is taking on new recording clients and students. Please contact here if you would like to inquire about working with Dino. Dino is endorsed by and plays Noble & Cooley drums.
