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!

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.

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!

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.

I really can't say enough good things about Natalie! My 12 year old daughter was fortunate to have been Natalie's voice and piano student for the past year. During this time, her abilities and confidence grew in an amazing way. Natalie's style of teaching and love of music was evident each time we took my daughter for a lesson. Highly, highly recommend her!

I have worked with Matt Cummings for 5 years, he was my band instructor and personal bass teacher. He was always very lenient with style and song choices; he would always be there to help learn new songs, or even write songs. Matt is a very reliable person whom I could trust to be on-time and respectable. Through the countless hours spent with him I have become very close with him. I recommend anyone and everyone to try lessons form him. He is a extremely talented person and I think that he can help everyone get better.

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.

I'm a full time working musician but I really want to get better with chord structure and music theory. After talking to John for a minute or two about these goals, he put together a lesson plan for me that included 4 or 5 attachments of chord charts and diagrams. This was a huge help because I'm a very visual learner - I really like how John will show you immediately (guitar in hand) what he's talking about, when you have trouble grasping a concept. I think it helps too that this dude is really laid back, he went over the same thing with me as many times as I needed. At the end of the lesson, a few key concepts were engrained in my brain that helped me understand how the chord structures of Fly Me To The Moon work, and why they work, more importantly. We're going to schedule a lesson every Monday now, I'm really excited to keep moving forward - It's nice to get instruction from someone who is out there playing, producing, AND teaching. Psyched! -Drew

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.

He has brought me so far. I have learned a lot from him. He will teach you music theory that you won't find hardly anywhere else. Anyone can teach you notes, but he will teach you music.

About

I taught myself music at a very young age and have always had a natural understanding for music and music theory. I can relate music to any other form under the sun and beyond, and can connect what people already know to music for a vast opening of the mind to the nature of music.
