    I started taking lessons and immediately saw drastic jumps in my ability to play, understanding of music theory, and creativity with the guitar. Cole combines Music theory with practices and exercises that are practical to whatever playing style you want. The location is very easy to get to and easy to park, so you don’t have to worry about any of that either. I continually recommend him and am very impressed with his quick responses between lessons and professionalism.

    As a 100% self taught guitar player, I had plateaued for a long time and needed someone to get me back on track. Working with Cole has been exactly what I’ve been looking for to get unstuck!

    I have been putting off learning to play the guitar for many years. I bought a guitar over 30 years ago and started lessons then. After going for only a couple of weeks I put it aside and there it stayed. Occasionally I would pick it up and think about lessons then put it away again for extended periods of time. I finally decided to find a teacher and make it work for me this. I feel very lucky that I found Cole Harper. He is patient with me and my advanced age. Being older makes finding chords a little more difficult for my old hands. Cole makes me feel like I could have learned to play a long time ago if I had only found him then. I am learning now and I highly recommend Cole Harper as a music/guitar teacher.

    Frequently asked questions

    The process is dependant on the student's level and goals. Everyone has a different relationship with music so there is no one size fits all system. 

    Years of different instructors, a degree in music performance, and a genuine passion for the art of music.

    Yes, this depends on whether classes would be held in person or through zoom. 

    Word of mouth.  At first it was helping friends improve, then referalls from other acquainteces came in, and then I decided it was time to develop a more structured platform. 

    Kids (age 4 was the youngest). Teenagers, adults, and people 40+

    Hosting and performing a Halloween event called Ghost Fest. 91.1 advertised it on their radio station, Nashville Indie promoted it on their social media pages. We performed originals and covers in a front of a full room of people in Halloween costumes and it was a great time! 

    My only advice would be to go into it with an open mind, and have some kind of direction of what you'd like to acheive. From there, we can tailor a plan to get you there! 

    I wouldn't overthink any of it. Music is a lifelong journey and one day at a time will lead you to more new discoveries and skills than you can imagine.
