Featured Franklin Guitar Teachers

Jeremi M

Instruments:

I am a 14 yr professional musician/educator that has performed in the US, Canada, and Europe. I hold a B.S. from MTSU in the Liberal Arts ( music, theater, production). I am a passionate Educator who pays strict attention to each student's personal interests and my main goal is to keep the musical experience for each student FUN. Not only do I facilitate a program for each student that caters to their growing interests,  I also seek to curate more interest by offering new paths of discovery. I want to share and nuture a growing love for music in each student's life. After all, music is FUN! I have gained inexplicable amounts of joy, self-discipline, self confidence, and fulfillment, not only from music itself, but from learning, teaching, and sharing the experience with others. I have been with Musika for 5 years and have had great experiences teaching students through their services. "A great musician has found the courage to practice what he/she COULD NOT DO, and a great music educator has found the path that makes that very practice of COULD NOT'S a FUN one!"

Mark G

Instruments:

My life's work has been focused on my enthusiastic and passionate approach to music. I started piano lessons when I was 5 years old, and have studied and played the guitar since I was 10 years old. I have a specific appreciation for the skills required to play instruments on professional recordings. I started my own recording studio when I was 18 years old, and have been making records ever since. I have sang and played a variety of instruments on many recordings, including acoustic and electric guitar, bass, pedal steel, banjo, mandolin, ukelele, piano, and organ. I am most passionate about the guitar.  My teaching studio is a full, professional recording studio, which allows me to utilize recording tools and reference music samples easily for my students.

Matthew D

Instruments:

I'm passionate about performing, writing, teaching music, and helping students reach their goals and potential. I graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston with a Bachelor of Music degree where I studied guitar performance, music business, and composition. As an active performer I've had the opportunity to play the opening shows for artists and bands including Willie Nelson, Alabama, Dierks Bentley, and Parmalee.

Eric D

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. In 2011, I graduated from Florida State Universtiy with a Bachelor Arts degree in both English Literature and Psychology. Moving to Nashville and pursuing a career in songwriting I've had some of thte greatest experiences in my life performing at legendary venues such as The Bluebird Cafe and meeting some of the world's most accomplished musicians. 

Tim G

Instruments:

I am enthusiastic about teaching others both how to play and understand the art of music. In 2009 I graduated from North Central University where I truly fell in live with music and gained a passion for learning and performing through both my education and the rich Fine Arts culture in the city of Minneapolis where I studied. Since graduating, performing professionally has been a wonderful experience and tantamount to my ongoing growth as a musician. I have had the experience of performing in all sorts of venues domestically and abroad from small clubs and churches to a 360 stage in the U.S. Airways Arena as well as Malaysia, Thailand, and South America.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Young students should start on a half size or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. Older students could start on an electric guitar, as long as they are able to hold it comfortably. Many student model guitars can be purchased for $150 to $200 new. An electric guitarist will need an amplifier and cables, at additional cost. Remember, higher quality instruments are easier to play and give the student the best chance of liking it.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home guitar lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Young children will start out by learning how to fret notes with the left hand, and how to pluck or strum the strings with their right hand. This will allow them to play simple, familiar songs on one string. Students will start learning to read music, and eventually learn how to play the common open guitar chords. Once students are more familiar with the guitar fretboard, they can start learning barre chords, moveable scales, and be introduced to music theory. Advanced students might decide to study classical guitar repertoire, rock or blues solos, or even jazz improvization.
Adults wanting to learn how to play the guitar may find it beneficial to have a clear goal in mind when starting their lessons. Beginner students may wish to learn to play a few of their favorite songs, or an advanced player might like to develop a technical aspect of their guitar playing. Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. Learning and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can take time, but with regular lessons and practice, you will gradually start to see improvements in your guitar playing, and be well on your way to achieving your goals.
Using a half sized classical guitar with nylon strings, students can start to play guitar at age 6. A half sized guitar is easier to hold, and the nylon strings are softer on the fingers than steel strings. At this age, students will learn simple songs on the top strings. Around the age of 7 or 8, students are able to progress onto playing chords. By age 10-12, students can graduate to playing a full sized guitar. Often at this age, students want to learn to play various rock music, and will therefore want to play the electric guitar.
