Working with Jacob has been amazing. I've been singing on Youtube for several years now and while I've made a lot of progress on my own, I found myself at somewhat of a standstill. My fans would always say I had a great voice suited for ballads, but anytime I would try to sing anything remotely powerful they seemed to find it lacking. I was skeptical about voice lessons, mostly because I wasn't sure if working with a teacher would be worth it when you can find all of this great information online without one nowadays. I thought my voice was just stuck like that and I couldn't really sing anything beyond gentle songs. And now? I wish I had started much sooner! Within three lessons I already felt a huge difference. I've only been working with Jacob weekly for a couple of months now and singing has gone from feeling difficult and stressful to being fun again. It's like I'm finding a completely new voice and it's so much fun to experiment with it and feel like I'm realizing my potential and singing properly. Songs I previously found impossible to sing are finally possible - even EASY to sing. The improvement was immediate. Jacob explains things in a way that's really easy to grasp and practice with, and we record every lesson so every time I go to record a new song I pull a lesson up and do the warm ups. My fans noticed a difference straight away, and now I'm getting a bunch of feedback telling me how much I've improved. For the first time in almost 200 uploads and a total of 16,342,345 Youtube views, people have started describing my voice as powerful. I finally have my confidence back, and instead of feeling like I want to quit like I did just a few months ago, I feel motivated to improve even further. Now instead of hearing a song and thinking 'I could never pull that off', I feel confident enough to give it my all, and I know Jacob will help me reach all of my goals. It's been amazing so far and I can't wait to see what's in store. I would highly recommend Jacob, he's a wonderful instructor!
Working with Nashville Music Academy has been the easiest, most convenient, and fun experience! Not only are they super prompt with responding to questions and booking lessons and practice space, but they are super flexible with times that work with my 9-5 schedule and also very affordable. They truly go above and beyond to make learning easy – there's no way I would be able to explore my new love of drums without this fantastic place!
I love her already. She's very encouraging and helpful. I'm excited to see where the lessons will take me.
My son has been taking guitar lessons at Cedarstone for two years and we are very pleased with his progress. Kevin always has a way to make music fun, fullfilling, and engaging to transform the student into an accomplished musician. The collective team of instructors at Cedarstone, brings a broad set of musical knowledge and teaching skills that is an absolute treasure. I highly recommend Cedarstone for all your music education endeavors.
Drum Kit lessons with Lael is fantastic! He listened to my desired goals, took notes, and by the end of our 1st session had a beginning plan developed for me to reach them. He carefully dissected everything from our discussion and custom taylor a plan for me. He has a genuine best regard for the students safety, well being, and quest in learning percussion. Hire him....you will not be disappointed!
Great lesson. Will be returning for more!
Shawna taught me voice lessons. She was very patient and persistent with me, and my vocal goals. She helped me reach certain notes, by using my head voice, with confidence and precision- She is excellent. You can tell she is passionate about music and wants others to exceed in their talent. I would highly recommend her to anyone
Ree is a rare gem in the world of vocal coaches in Music City and beyond. Her expertise, method of instruction, and understanding of how and why the voice works make her one of the most gifted coaches I have encountered. We found her when looking for a vocal coach for our 14-year-old daughter who was new to singing and extremely shy. We knew we found a match when Ree explained her philosophy of teaching--that learning to sing is more than becoming a great singer but about personal growth, confidence, and self-esteem. What is more perfect for a younger person or any person, than that? Since beginning lessons with Ree, our daughter has truly blossomed in her vocal capability, her confidence and her understanding that she has a lot to offer as a performer and a person. Ree is patient, understanding of the courage it takes to find your voice and enthusiastic about teaching the art and craft of singing and song. I would recommend Ree to a seasoned professional, the beginner and the person who wants to sing and believes that they cannot. Trust me--you can sing and Ree will get you there. Wendi from Nashville
Angela Hurt has helped me become a better singer and a honestly better person. Ask her about her experiences, and you will quickly realize she is one of the most qualified people in Nashville to teach voice lessons, especially in the country genre. I had already been playing out professionally here and there before I found her, but I'm so glad I did. I'm a much more confident performer. I have had a few good teachers, but she is better than all of them combined. She is kind, listens, and genuinely cares about your individual successes and personal progression. I do one-hour sessions. I love going to every lesson, and I started seeing results immediately. If you're thinking twice about taking her, stop now. You won't regret it. Have fun, and don't ever stop progressing!
After I retired I decided to finally do something I wanted to do all my life - learn to play the piano. Finding the right teacher as an adult isn't always easy - luckily Natalie was the one I found. She's just so intuitive about what would work to get you to learn, what you're thinking, and how you're feeling about it all. She makes learning piano fun and a collaborative experience - I use a combination of lesson books and easy piano versions of songs I particularly like. Natalie is supportive and kind, and yet gets you to learn what you need to know to continue on and get progressively better. What else can I say? You really couldn't find a better person to teach you. And she teaches piano, violin, and voice!!
I am consistently impressed by how much each teacher pours into my daughter. They truly understand the whole child and are invested in each one. We have had lessons in multiple instruments throughout the past few years and we have enjoyed them all. Loyal customers here. I always recommend them to anyone wanting lessons!
Cindy has been the highlight of our week, and we have had lessons every week for almost 2 years now! She is extremely talented and very experienced in the music industry in nashville. She brings her experiences and expertise every time. My son is very creative, and she can relate to him. She also encouraged him to write his own music after he showed interest in it. She makes it fun! Cindy was the perfect introduction to music and the perfect first instrument, piano, teacher. Love her!!!
I connected with Evan after hearing his band perform live in Boston. I've always loved to sing but wanted to take professional lessons, and Evan offered to help me out. He's super talented and has a lot of technical training from his time at Berklee College of Music which made it really easy to learn from him. I feel like I was able to take a lot away from each lesson and improved a lot through working with him. It was always really comfortable and productive but also a lot of fun.
I started taking voice lessons when I was 65. Jaie was a phenomenal teacher during the three years I took private lessons and adapted to my learning style, which is very analytical. My range has greatly expanded. She was able to teach me the physics of singing. Even though I don’t read music I am able to adapt and relate the notes even though I don’t know what they are called. I now receive many compliments on my singing and how much I have improved. She was patient yet demanding of excellence. Her personality and positive feedback helped my progression.
I have found Jennifer to be professional, caring and extremely patient with my child. Coming from a traditional piano lesson background, I was skeptical of this program, but had heard good things from friends. Jennifer answered all of our questions thoroughly. The true success is listening to my child joyfully playing the piano. She is only 6 years old and has had 13 lessons but knows more songs from memory than I do and I've been "playing piano" for over 20 years! I highly recommend Jennifer as a teacher and Simply Music's format. Jennifer has the heart of a servant teacher and she lets her students shine.
My girls learned so much in their voice lessons with Lindsay. She is a fun, patient, flexible, and gifted teacher. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a positive beginning or continuation in music lessons. She is wonderful with children of all ages and her music talent translates beautifully into teaching others.
Michael Chirri was my guitar teacher when I first started to play over 2 decades ago. I still benefit to this day from the scales & techniques he taught. What sets Michael apart from other guitarists, besides playing at a Masters level, is his enthusiasm for teaching, his encouragement, and the diversity of styles that he can play. My endorsement is gladly given, but not needed. The quality speaks for itself. -Dan Minard
Tara Tinsley is extremely talented! She also has the upmost patience while teaching. I am a beginner at the guitar, and if there was a word to describe "less a than beginner," that would be me. She went at my own pace because obviously I am very slow to switch between chords. I have taken a couple lessons so far and as long as I practice what she teaches at home I know I will be able to play songs in no time. I would recommend her to anybody for guitar lessons. Her office is in a great, historic building in downtown Tacoma. It is a professional office building with free street parking close by (which is almost impossible to find downtown). The lobby has seating for students and/or parents to wait. For parents that don't want to wait inside, there is a coffee and wine bar a block away! If anyone is skeptical she has music on YouTube and Spotify. Check it out and I know you will be convinced to learn from her!

We build great singers! Singing Success was created by cultural icon of the vocal coaching world, Brett Manning. He started out like many singers - frustrated with the lack of results from the vocal lessons he found. After searching through many resources, vocal coaches, and methods, Brett compiled and created a few simple exercises that proved to be very effective for his own voice and every singer he taught them to. These techniques truly made singing as easy as speaking. Building on those simple foundational exercises, he began to experiment and innovate, filling in the "gaps," testing new techniques for effectiveness as he went. He eventually formulated lessons for teaching vocal tone and style, and incorporated the older exercises into his own innovative method. Brett has become a master teacher and one of the world's most sought after vocal coaches, largely because of his uncanny ability to "see with his ears," and instantly invent exercises that get astounding results. He, along with his certified associate coaches, teach voice lessons in his Nashville studio as well as Skype lessons to singers of all genres, both the undiscovered and "the best of the best." He was also a judge/mentor for the 1st season of the CMT reality show, "Can You Duet." Brett has worked with artists from Capitol, Columbia, Atlantic, Interscope, Dreamworks, Lyric Street, MCA, Epic/Sony, KMG, Word, Embassy, Gotee Records, as well as countless independent record labels. He has worked with the casts of Broadway productions of Les Miserables and Jekyll and Hyde, as well as the Broadway tour of Elton John's Aida. His client list contains winners of the world's most prestigious vocal awards, including the Doves, the CMA Awards, and yes, the Grammys. Despite having an incredible five octave range himself, Brett continues to claim "my students eventually out-sing me!" Brett has a unique perspective on the novice singer, "beginning students have the unique opportunity to build their voice free of any bad habits." In fact, it was his love for amateur singers that, after a decade of teaching private lessons, inspired Brett to begin offering vocal seminars and workshops around the nation. Brett is known for his fun, encouraging demonstrations, showing how even "brand new" singers can experience immediate improvement in the range, ease, and quality of their voice. Audience participants are awestruck when, often in less than an hour, Brett adds a full octave to their usable range. It's something you simply must see to believe!
Your voice is an instrument housed in your body with other functioning parts that allow you to sing with excellence when shown how .I can show you how all theses other body parts even your stance can improve your sound tone and volume.
I offer vocal and guitar lessons for beginners and intermediate-level students. I'm a Berklee College of Music alumni. Composition and arranging lessons are available as well.
