John Pennell's Music Lessons

Verified review

My husband and I undertook 36 hours of guitar lessons with John over a 2 week period, mostly together, which was in itself a challenge! We were also beginners and John treated us with the utmost respect and we never felt like 'fools'. The time we have spent with John will ultimately make the difference between us being enthusiastic guitar players, which I know we will be, and not feeling like failures and losing interest, which could well have happened if we had not discovered John. So for those of you looking for a fantastic, enthusiastic (and Beatles fan) teacher, don't hesitate to contact John Pennell in Nashville. We highly recommend him.

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.

I was excited about learning to play guitar, but how to begin was the problem. First, Denny called; his personality was warm and calming. He was very confident in his abilities, stated as a matter of fact, but does not major on that; he stayed focused on me, as a beginner, and how he could best serve my needs. From meeting me at the music store and providing guidance with my first guitar purchase through my first lesson, Denny provided gentle guidance and helped build my confidence. After the first lesson, I was able to play chords clearly and even had others to learn during my independent practice. I am very grateful I chose Denny as the professional to begin my new journey with. If you seriously want to learn how to play and enjoy your guitar experience, you owe it to yourself to get in contact with Denny.

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!

Bob Lewis was my guitar instructor for 6 years. As an adult student I was nervous about beginning this journey, but Bob was committed to helping me succeed. He was patient and understanding, and knew when to give me that extra push. One of my greatest memories is sitting in class, and he and I playing a song together. It really helped my confidence. Additionally, Bob is a really nice guy!

    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.

    Danny is an excellent teacher! He has a vast amount of knowledge of so many elements of music. He has introduced me to new harmonic concepts that I didn't know existed; extremely helpful ways of thinking around improvisation; and so many different, exciting, and original techniques like "harp harmonics", slap for guitar, chord tapping, etc. He listens to what the student wants to learn and gives relevant homework/advice and music to listen to for inspiration. I would recommend Danny to anyone no matter what level they are at!

    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!

      Noah is a great teacher! His sunny attitude takes the frustration out of learning new skills. His amazing skills are matched in measure by his amazing patience, and he has a knack for explaining technique in ways that can be easily grasped by students of any level. Spending time with Noah for lessons is a joyous occasion, something to look forward to, that leaves me with not only improved musical skills, but an improved outlook on life. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

      Pamela Pierson is a very talented instructor who cares about the student as well as the music. She takes time to listen to what the student is doing. She also asks the student what they want to accomplish and tailors the lessons toward a common goal. Pamela is also patient where needed but has the ability to be just as firm. I am very grateful as a parent to have found Pamela and have recommended her to many others.

      My daughter takes guitar lessons from Keith. She's 10 and pretty shy but Keith is very patient. He has taught her about new genres of music and new musicians. He encourages her to bring in things she wants to learn. She enjoys her lessons a lot and has discovered a talent she didn't know she had, with Keith's gentle, encouraging direction. She has enjoyed it so much she's inspired her sister to take lessons from Keith as well. In addition, Keith is phenomenonally talented and sometimes he plays a little after her lesson is over, and that's always a treat!

      About

      I am a Nashville singer/songwriter/guitarist with a degree in songwriting from Belmont University. I am available to teach lessons primarily on acoustic guitar or songwriting; however, I am open to vocal or general music lessons as well.

      About

      I offer guitar lessons for beginners to intermediate. I also service music history teaching, from blues, rock, and rockabilly styles. Learn to play guitar in a simple easy to understand way and start playing and writing on your own fast.

      About

      I provide piano and keyboard lessons. I have a background in classical and other styles of music such as pop, rock, blues, funk, jazz, country, worship, etc., which includes many years of professional performing and studio recording. My method of teaching would include reading notation as well as numbers (based on music theory which would enable one to play more by ear and improvise, as opposed to only reading notes). It all depends on what one would most desire to learn as everyone is different regarding his/her learning needs and level of playing/expertise. I am over 50 and have been playing since age 5, and have a concert grand piano (Yamaha C7) as well as other electric equipment (keyboards) to enhance the learning experience.

      About

      Because I teach the very young when others will tell parents to wait until they are older. I make my lessons fun while still maintaining respect and structure.

      About

      I help my students by teaching them what they enjoy learning. Whether in the field of music or school subjects, such as reading, writing or math, my students receive a full and comprehensive curriculum.

      About

      A combination of passion for the new and exciting in music and classical theory and analysis.....I grew up and love Billy Joel, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, but I've grown to love Dream Theater, Periphery, and Thank You Scientist in my later years.
