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!

We really enjoyed Kristen! She seemed to know the music business well and shared her experiences with us. Kristen tailored her lessons to my daughter's needs, and I was able to see improvements quickly. I would definitely recommend Kristen.

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.

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!

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 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've been a mostly self taught musician for years, and have been in several different bands since I first started playing. I play guitar and keyboards in my current band, and wanted to expand my knowledge of music theory and overall ability to play piano. Before taking lessons with Jon, my music knowledge basically consisted of random tutorials and lessons on YouTube and observing other players. Jon has helped give me a clear direction of what I needed to do to improve with lessons that he has tailored to allow me to learn exactly what I had hoped to. I didn't really have any desire to learn to read sheet music, but rather learn to read charts and use my own creativity to make music. He is patient, he explains things well, and he is genuinely invested in helping me become a better player. I am 24, but I feel certain that these attributes apply to his lessons with children as well. Highly recommend!

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!

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!

Natalie Robertson and her team at O'Kaye Productions are awesome. They're so much more than just singing/voice coaches. They build personal, one on one relationships with their students and families while guiding, mentoring and helping students develop skills to see them through all walks of life in addition to their singing talents. My daughter has gained so much confidence in herself and continues to grow by leaps and bounds vocally. You'll be blessed by more than just singing lessons by these guys, you'll be blessed with the best!!!

Evan gave me some general music lessons, and I came away with a TON of knowledge I hadn't ever been taught before. He went to Berklee College of Music and is such a talented singer and songwriter, and did a great job of teaching me some tips and tricks to improve my musicianship. 10/10, would highly recommend. Also he is so hot :')

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.

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.
