Though the time that I took piano lessons was short, Mr. Pennell's experience and interest in the subject made each hour an event to look forward to. My progress was noticeable within the first few weeks. Tips and advice that he gave me bettered my piano skills in a way that remains today, and his flexibility in catering towards my learning style was very respectable. He personalized lessons and did so without complaint. Mr. Pennell's insight and knowledge should absolutely be pursued through lessons; he's an outstanding teacher and musician.

I began taking piano lessons with John in January. I had a very limited background with piano and music in general. John makes learning to play the piano and read music very attainable and fun. I look forward to my weekly lessons, and have already learned a great deal under his instruction. I have a few songs under my belt that I am not the least ashamed to play for friends and family!! If you're looking for a knowledge and interesting music teacher in East Nashville, John is a great option!

I have taken a few piano lessons from John, and I find his method of teaching to be both encouraging and instructive. He has an obvious passion for music and a knack for explaining concepts in a way that is clear and precise, without being overly technical or intimidating. I would recommend him to anyone looking to develop their overall understanding of music, and definitely to anyone who hopes to learn to improvise and arrange their own pieces!

My three children (13, 11 and 8) have taken piano lessons with Marcin for the past year and have all made great strides in their abilities due to his good work. Marcin keeps them motivated by allowing them to play current hits. I am impressed with Marcin's promptness and the quality of his instruction as well as his ability to keep my children interested in playing the piano. I am thrilled to have such a high quality instructor willing to come to my home and teach.

Marcin has provided piano instruction to my three children over the past years. As a family, we really appreciate the quality of the musical education he provides along with the added value of having the instruction happen in our home. Marcin is always prompt and flexible both with our time and his own. He is patient, professional and very talented.

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.

The experience of learning guitar from Matt has blown any expectation that I might of had. I came to Nashville from LA with the desire to learn some guitar basics geared towards song writing. I wasn't sure if that was a feasible option, but that was my hope. Not only have I learned many basics, but Matt's style of teaching has connected so many dots from long lost childhood piano lessons in a way that really makes sense for me. Matt's an amazing musician which is obvious up front, but his aptitude in assigning learning materials that both interest you and push you without overwhelming you has made this learning experience nothing short of exceptional. He's patient, informative, and the type of teacher that puts you immediately at ease. If you're looking for lessons, you'd be crazy to choose anyone else. Definitely five brilliantly, shining gold stars!

Annie is very good at bringing your voice to where you want it, realistically. I was able to work with her for 5 weeks and develop an audition song. I have no experience in singing, and don't have the best voice, but she helped me pick the best piece for me, and then worked with me and helped me perfect the piece by the end of the 5 weeks. She said very open to ideas, and easy to talk to. I looked forward to our meetings every week. A great, reliable, and very well-priced teacher.

After two years of "basic" piano lessons, my daughters were bored and not challenged, they wanted to quit. Cedarstone breathed new life into them and now.....8 years later, they are playing the piano and now taking voice lessons. They can sit down and play ANY song they hear. We are an official "musically inclined" family which has been such a gift........it is their way to refuel and relax. It has given them great joy and they both have incredible talent that was tapped thanks to Cedarstone!

I am an adult taking piano lessons for the first time. Kevin is patient and encouraging. At our first lesson, he asked what my goals for learning piano were and has directed our lessons to meet my goals. His quest is to make my learning experience fun and fulfilling. And I will say it certainly has been so far! Within just a few weeks, I can play recognizable songs, use both left and right hand to play and include chords. Having a great time!!

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!!!

Her job as my piano teacher is an on going process, but she is fully committed to it, and I'm impressed by her ambition.

I stepped into the booth and in less than a minute Jordan had the mix I needed in my ears, made me feel comfortable, and in 5 takes guided me with clear feedback to the vocal sound I was shooting for. He was quick, exact, knowledgeable, and a ton of fun to work with. I'll work with him again for sure. - boudwin.

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.

Evan is the perfect teacher for anyone looking to sharpen their vocal skills, and is also an extremely proficient piano and keyboard player. I'm a much more confident singer now, and can even play piano well enough where I'm comfortable to play open mics :-). I definitely recommend Evan as a teacher - he clearly got a great education at the Berklee college of Music and was able to pass along a lot of valuable knowledge to me!

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 :')

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!

I took guitar lessons with Evan for over six months. He was extremely patient with me and I always had a good time. He taught me chords by picking songs that I would enjoy practicing and showing me simplified versions of them. I never felt ashamed or overwhelmed. I started with absolutely no experience and he gave me manageable lessons but I always felt like I was moving forward. If I hadn't moved out of the area, I would definitely still be taking lessons!

Hi, I am an accomplished flute and cello player, but I was looking to expand my musicianship to the piano. Kaitlyn can really lay out all the chord voicings and scales on the piano in a very teachable and relatable way. Her classical training is a huge factor and she is well versed in jazz improvisation and vocal technique. I have also seen her shred on stage several times. I would recommend her for any student or anyone looking to hire a pro pianist.

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

About

My name is Joshua Foster. I have been a private music instructor for 15 years. I attended American University, where I received a bachelor of arts degree with concentration on piano performance, jazz guitar performance, and composition. (Yes, I was extremely busy then.) I structure my lessons differently. I believe that music wouldn't be in my life if my amazing teachers had not made it fun. It was hard work, but I consistently felt that I was having a good time. I have adopted that, and am always going to keep it as a part of my teaching style. I can drive to your home for the lessons. No more having to fight the traffic to get your young student to a studio for a lesson. I am going to fight the traffic for you. I teach primarily in the Brentwood, Belle Meade, and Green Hills areas, all near Nashville, TN. Please e-mail me for more information about lessons for your son or daughter. No one is too young or old to start a relationship with music!
