John is a good teacher. He gives good "homework" to practice and works at his students' pace. He also is flexible about scheduling which has been super helpful! I'm really enjoying bass lessons and feel like he is working hard to teach me to play tunes realistic for my skill level and keep up with others!

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.

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 took weekly private banjo lessons from Wilson for 2+ years. He was a terrific teacher. He was great at balancing theory with working on songs. Great at picking out music at my level that I would learn from and enjoy. And was always responsive to what I was most interested in learning. He even got me to perform in public by playing with me at an open mic night! I would highly recommend him.

Nick has an excellent approach to teaching guitar to students of any level. He came prepared to our session with a complete lesson plan based off of the core elements of the guitar and quickly adapted each exercise to my level. Extremely attentive and helpful, Nick's style of teaching is all encompassing in that he teaches you not only technique and theory, but also how to practice it effectively and how to apply it in everyday settings.

Lynn K.
Verified review

I have been interested in learning to play guitar for a long time. My son who is going to be a senior was also interested in picking up the bass guitar in order to take a Rock Band class in school. Being a busy mom, I needed someone who could come to our house as well as be flexible with scheduling lessons. Lonny does both of these and is very reasonable with his fee. My son and I both have played piano and 1 other instrument each so that rhythm and reading notes came easier for us. But Lonny took me pretty far in the first couple of lessons that I was able to play notes on all 6 strings and therefore beautiful classical guitar songs with notes and chords in the treble and bass clefs. He is currently working with my son on syncopation. I'm confident that he has listened to my son's goals and will have him ready to be comfortable playing in Rock Band once school starts.

I have only had one lesson so far but he understood that I wanted to jump into the fire so to speak,and we hit the ground running.I was actually surprised how much we were able to fit into one hour and though we move fast he still make sure that I was retaining the information and provided me with copies of the materials used during the lesson. I would not have a problem recommending him to any beginner or intermediate studentor someone that just want to brush up on the basics

    About

    I'm offering bass guitar lessons for all ages and experience levels, from beginner to advanced, and customized for each individual. I have a B.M. in commercial music and music business from Millikin University in Decatur, IL, with a focus on bass and over 12 years of experience playing a wide variety of genres, including jazz, country, funk, pop, rock, and more. (Additionally, my undergraduate study equipped me with strong knowledge and understanding of music theory.) For the past year, I've been working exclusively as a freelance musician, playing bass. This was my goal when I moved to Nashville just over two years ago. Let's chat! My typical rate is $25 for a half-hour lesson and $45 for an hour. Usually, my students meet me at my house in East Nashville, but under special circumstances, I might be willing to travel.

    About

    I offer a unique type of music teaching for a limited number of exceptionally serious and passionate students in the Nashville, Tennessee area. I teach a unique program for intermediate, advanced and some beginning level students who are serious about learning piano/keyboard, guitar, bass, music theory, composition, harmony, orchestration, recording and production techniques, computer-based recording and production, traditional technique through exercises and drills, music reading and writing, chart reading and improvisation. I also teach music business and career development, covering contracts, touring, recording, and various ways to make a living in the music business. I am a professional music teacher, as well as a seasoned professional musician, TV and film composer, and performer. I have toured with a number of famous recording artists, such as Peter Frampton, Taylor Dayne, Cinderella and Gary U.S. Bonds, and I compose and produce music for television and film (ABC, Disney, Nickelodeon, A&E, Discovery Channel, History Channel, Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema). I teach a unique program for intermediate, advanced and some beginning level students who are serious about learning piano/keyboard, guitar, bass, music theory, composition, harmony, orchestration, recording and production techniques, computer-based recording and production, traditional technique through exercises and drills, music reading and writing, chart reading and improvisation. I am a traditionally trained piano player (37 years), as well as an accomplished guitarist, (33 yrs), bass player, saxophonist and general multi instrumentalist/utility player. I have a unique twist on teaching that is very special and very effective for the special, rare student who is exceptionally passionate, devoted, and disciplined.I only accept students who have passion, discipline and intense desire to work hard and develop a disciplined approach to do the work involved. My specialty is multiple instruments and I understand the differences and similarities of the different instruments and how to apply the different techniques and approaches to get the essence of each, and how to apply them to each other. Also, as you can imagine, music is music, so you can carry knowledge of one instrument to another and vice versa. This is my specialty. I am also well versed in traditional music notation, (both reading and writing, including basic, to scoring), lead sheets and chord charts, and the Nashville Numbers System. I also have a thorough knowledge of theory and an interesting and unique technique of teaching it in a way that makes it easy to comprehend and apply instantly. I also teach music business and career development, covering contracts, touring, recording, and various ways to make a living in the music business. I also have experiences in teaching students with special needs (autistic, learning disabilities, etc.), and I will consider special students who show an exceptional aptitude or passion for music. I am also from a family of teachers. My father was a music teacher with a Phd in music education as well as chairman of the music dept of a school district, and my mother was an elementary school teacher, singer, and actress. If you are interested in more information or would like to schedule an appointment, please reply via email.
