I have greatly enjoyed my experience at Nashville Music Academy! The lessons (banjo) themselves have been wonderful and the experience with the company is top notch. They have helped me by setting up recurring appointments and payments to make the experience as easy as possible.
John is an extraordinary teacher. He has a way of taking something complicated and making it easily understood. I've played bass for years, but never learned how to read music. John has taken what I knew already and focused it into not just reading music, but understanding music theory. After just a few weeks, I'm sight-reading, playing better than I ever have before and continuing to learn something new every day. Money and time well spent with a great mentor!
Marcin is an outstanding teacher and able to cater the lessons perfectly for what I was looking for. For 6 years I've been working as a producer, engineer and drummer in town. I decided to take lessons in order to better my ear, widen my skill set to another instrument and enhance my knowledge of music theory. Thanks to Marcin's approach, after 2 months I'm further along in all three of those categories than I ever imagined I would be. On top of being a gifted instructor he's just a really great person. I really can't recommend him enough!
I took weekly guitar lessons from Matt Kass for six years when he lived in Philadelphia. Matt focuses on teaching you the music you want to learn to play and at a pace that is comfortable to your level of proficiency. He combines instruction on the fundamentals of playing a guitar with the basics of music theory so that lesson time is spent not just on how to play the guitar by why particular chords or notes work together and their relationship to the different modes of the major scale. As a professional musician, Matt is thoroughly knowledgeable about the guitar and music in general but is incredibly personable, thoughtful, reliable and friendly. He is able to tailor his teaching approach to your individual needs and helps you progress at a pace that is appropriate to your skill level. The thing that impressed me the most in Matt's teaching ability was his patience and willingness to help me around obstacles or plateaus in my playing ability. You feel that he is fully invested in your learning and shows a willingness to try different approaches to helping you succeed. I would highly recommend Matt as a guitar instructor. He is a terrific teacher and an excellent musician.
Nathan has been teaching my daughter how to play guitar and she's enjoying his teaching style and learning a lot at the same time. She had never picked up a guitar before and so we had to sort of force her to start the lessons at first. After only a few lessons, she was practicing on her own and enjoying her ability to play pieces of songs. We have even joined in and had him teach us some things on the side after her lesson was over which he was more than happy to do. I appreciate the time slot he's given us since we work all week and don't come home until later in the evening. We are seeing great improvements in how our daughter plays guitar and she is able to even teach us a few things that she learned! Thanks Nathan!
I took lessons from Caleb for more than a year. Caleb was always enthusiastic, always well-prepared, and always ready when it was time for our lesson to begin. He sensed that I was interested in (and didn't know much about) music theory, so he worked that in to the lessons. We always worked on music I was interested in, which made practicing more fun, and Caleb frequently recommended music and YouTube clips I might be interested in. My love for music--the act of making music--increased while I took lessons from Caleb. Studio C goes beyond just 30 minute lessons once a week. While I took lessons, students performed in at least two recitals, and in a "Pianorama" mass concert as part of the greater Nashville scene of musicians. Caleb goes above and beyond to offer the best learning experience he can. I would love to see Studio C expand to Rutherford County. Maybe a day a week traveling to customers in Smyrna and Murfreesboro would be possible as the business grows. The success of Studio C is clearly an indication of Caleb's outstanding service and passion for what he does, his commitment to his craft, and his intelligence as a business owner. My experience with Studio C was a very positive one.
Susan is an outstanding vocal coach. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of vocal or music lessons! She is amazing!!!! 5 stars for Susan!!
My experience with Chef Dave was incredible! I had Dave come out for a private lesson for me and a friend. Dave told us to bring the kinds of foods we wanted to cook. We had asked for help with knife skills and cooking healthy foods. He told us he had several ideas for lean proteins like chicken and fish and lots with vegetables, and he did not disappoint! We hit the ground running - Chicken piccata, braised chicken, and pesto salmon, roasted beet and goat cheese salad with lemon vinaigrette, roasted butternut squash, and wild and brown rice! And I learned how to hold use my chef knife, how to cut beets, butternut squash, a whole pineapple, a mango, and how to mince shallots and garlic! I have been so inspired by the lesson. I am so excited about what I have learned. I still feel inspired! Thanks Chef Dave!
My girls have taken music lessons at Cedarstone for the past year. Other than some minor scheduling issues, they have had a wonderful experience and have learned so much!
I've been taking guitar lessons with Dan for a couple months now. I have been played piano since I can remember, and always wanted to learn how to play guitar, but never got around to it. I can say I'm definitely getting more comfortable and confident with it after a few lessons. I like that he doesn't just teach you basic chords, but also really gets into finger picking and intricate exercises as well. On top of being a great teacher, he's such a friendly and inspiring human being. I would highly recommend guitar lessons with him!
He went over my goals with me and what I needed to learn and practice inoder to reach them in detail. He also did a great job at connecting and expanding on what I already knew about bass and music theory as well as going over all the basics.
Patrick has been a guitar teacher for my two sons (ages 11 & 20) for about 3 years. He has been outstanding. Patrick found out what each of my boys wanted out of guitar lessons before teaching them - did they want to be a musician, did they just want a hobby, did they just want to learn to play, WHAT did they want? He finds out what makes them "tick" in life and he naturally, flawlessly, magically works that into learning to play the guitar in a fun, casual, laid-back way. He's incredibly patient and gives them so much encouragement to expand their ideas and thoughts. He knows when to push and when to back off. My oldest had taught himself some things off of Youtube but was ready to move on to the next level. Patrick was phenomenal in that transition. Patricks talents are endless at whatever level. We are so blessed to have found him.
Our kids have been taking piano lessons for over two years and we could not be more pleased. Eric and Sarah operate in an extremely professional manner, always on time and makes great use of lesson time. Eric is fun, encouraging, and very knowledgeable.
Matt is great!!! He’s very patient and makes the lessons fun for my child.
Jonathan is a fantastic teacher. He takes time to learn about you and your musical taste and then generates the lessons accordingly. I have seen tremendous improvements thanks to him!
My first Nashville experience on Music Row was at Meredith Blis Music Studio and I couldn't have chosen a better place to start. Her techniques for getting comfortable and filling in the gaps on what I didn't know about voice technique was instant. Meredith has knowledge even beyond vocals that applies to anyone building a career in music.
Jordan was my son's fiddle instructor. We absolutely loved working with Jordan. He explained things so that our son could easily understand it. You can tell that he is so passionate about music and loves what he does. He would take the time each week to make a video for our son to use for practice at home. We only stopped taking lessons because our son's basketball schedule prevented us from doing both. If we decide to start lessons again, we will definitely return to Jordan.
My three kids took piano lessons from Aaron. He related well to them and taught them music theory as well as technique. Couldn't have asked for a better teacher. Highly recommend.

I was fortunate for many years to study and play with some world class musicians- guitarists, bass players, pianist,etc and world renowned jazz educators who have given me a unique ability to help both myself and others develop music skills. The things that people don't normally get from colleges and music schools and books and videos on line,etc.

My experience as a composer and multi-instrumentalist allows me to teach from several perspectives. I love teaching musical concepts and applying them to whatever setting is necessary.

I feel that I have a knack for style, and helping people find what they really want out of music. Of course, if you're just starting, learning the mechanics of the instrument is the most important. But your instrument is really just an extension of yourself, and you eventually want to play how you feel. Its an extraordinary thing!
