Music Lessons in Nashville

Nashville is one of the most prominent music centers in the country. Music City is home to many talented musicians, songwriters, performers, recording engineers, music producers and recording studios. Why not learn from some professional Nashville musicians, with decades of experience?

Green Hills Guitar studio has provided tens of thousands of lessons in Nashville since 1998. If you live in the Nashville area, or are visiting, contact us to sign up for music lessons. And if you have taken lessons before, or you are considering a new guitar instructor to get going again, we would be happy to meet with you. Together, we will formulate a lesson plan, based upon your goals and musical interests. The wonderful thing about learning an instrument and creating is we are all students for life!

Good Players Don’t Always Make Good Teachers

Being inspired, staying motivated, and having an organized and linear lesson plan are very important factors to your success. Another important factor? Finding the right instructor for you. Great teachers enjoy teaching. Great teach invest in their students and sharing their knowledge with them. There are a lot of great players out there! Don’t assume being a good player or musician automatically makes them good teachers. Our instructors enjoy teaching. We offer affordable, personalized music lessons at two convenient Nashville locations.

“The workshop here was one of the absolute best I have ever taken. It was so organized and structured to exactly what I want to learn. Being able to leave with handouts, books and material to practice is so important and something most guitar lessons don’t provide. I would highly recommend Green Hills Guitar Studio! I can’t say enough great things about my experience here!” – Crystal Borelli
