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.

    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.

    Ace comes to our lessons on time, and with a plan. She remembers what I've been practicing, and knows how to get me to the next level. She gives me her full attention for the whole time we're in the lesson, and when it's time to wrap it up, she leaves me with clear assignments for how to practice and what to practice - and it's always something fun, challenging and yet attainable that makes me want to come back to my instrument. Ace makes it fun to work hard at getting better.

    I've been taking base lessons with Jordan for the past 3 years and have found that the half hour I spend a week is always worth every penny. Jordan is patient, talented and always professional. My son also takes piano lessons after my session and he enjoys it also.

      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.

      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!

      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!

      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!

      About

      Guitar is my passion; teaching is my joy. I am a college student here in Nashville, and have had a love of music since the day I was born. I come from a very musically talented family, from which came the name "JamesGang". I sing, play piano, and write music, but most of all, I play the guitar. I am experienced in all forms of music reading: tablature, sheet music, and the Nashville number system. I am also very experienced in music theory. My guitar abilities include blues, rock, folk, country, Spanish guitar, flamenco, classical, and playing by ear. I am interested in teaching the guitar to all ages, and I am great with kids, as I have a brother whom I started teaching when he was 7. My teaching style is extremely flexible to the goals and requests of my students, and my prices are very low. I am willing to come to any location you request or to have the lessons done on my college campus. I am greatly honored to teach my passion to anyone who desires to learn, and I look forward to teaching you or your children the art of the acoustic guitar. Have a blessed day!
