Featured Franklin Guitar Teachers

Mike R

Instruments:

I am skilled in areas such as Guitar, Piano, and Songwriting. As an instructor, I believe that it is essential to meet each student where he/she is in their journey through this musical walk. Maybe one student needs a little more work on her theory while another needs more time getting the rhythm down. Whatever the case may be, I'm here to make each student the best musician he/she wants to be.

Bethany R

Instruments:

I started my professional music career in 1983 when I joined an all-girls band. After 3 years traveling and recording with the band I struck out on my own and did a one woman show for 17 years. In 1993 I moved to Branson, MO and performed in my own show on the Lake Queen Riverboat for five years. In 1997 I moved back to my hometown of Nashville, TN and focused on my private music teaching and songwriting. I have recorded three albums in three formats (LP, Cassette, CD). I currently teach music in the public school system and teach private lessons in guitar and voice.   I have a bachelor’s degree in Recording Industry Management and my endorsement in Music Education. 

Logan T

Instruments:

I believe music is one of the most important things you can have in life. Guitar is the instrument that I feel most connected to. I started playing about six years ago, but playing music has been a part of my life going back 16 years, when I was learning drumset. I've also become quite fluent with piano. As a songwriter, I use all three instruments to express myself in different ways. No matter the instrument, however, music has gotten me through life, and I am eternally indebted to it. I want to share my knowledge with anyone who wants to learn!

John P

Instruments:

I love teaching people music, regardless of age or prior experience. I graduated from Arizona State University with Bchelor of Music degree in Theory/Composition, and from the University of Illinois witha Master of Music degree in Theory/Composition. I also completed course work on a DMA at the U of I. I have performed locally and nationally as a bassist for Alison Krauss, Vassar Clements, Harley Allen, and Charlie Sizemore. I've had my songs played on national TV and at awards shows. I currently teach music at a private Academy in Nashville during the morning and love working with the students to develope their technical as well as musical abilities. I have a home studio where I keep all my instruments, guitars, basses, piano, trumpet and percussion instruments. Having traveled and played extensively in both the US and Canada, I have been fortunate to meet many different people of various backgrounds, and cultures, and consequently share my music with them.  

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.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Young students are advised to start off by learning to play on a half sized or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. Older students may wish to start on an electric guitar, as long as they can hold the guitar comfortably and competently. There are many different student model guitars, which will set you back $150 - $200. This does not include the price for cables and an amplifier, which will be a necessary purchase for electric guitar players. Higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which provides the student a greater chance to enjoy their learning.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home guitar lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule. For younger students in particular, having guitar lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the guitar.
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.
Many adults take guitar lessons! Your teacher will develop an individualized lesson plan relevant to your musical needs and goals. Adults taking guitar lessons for the first time can expect to learn a lot of new things, and have fun in the process!
Students can start taking their lessons as young as 6 years old with a half size classical guitar (with nylon strings), by playing simple melodies on the top strings. Every child learns and develops at their own pace, but by ages 7-8, students will be forming and playing various guitar chords learning simple songs that they can sing along to. Older students will graduate to being able to comfortably handle a full size guitar around ages of 10-12, which is when many students become more interested in learning rock guitar and want to get an electric model.
