Nashville Guitar Lessons

Nashville has some famous guitar lovers — President Andrew Jackson designed a guitar-shaped driveway for his Nashville home, while honky-tonk guitarist Webb Pierce put a guitar-shaped pool in his backyard. Perhaps your children have been begging for guitar lessons ever since they heard Mr. Guitar (Chet Atkins) on the Big 98. (When they’re rich and famous guitarists, they can pay for your very own guitar-shaped hot tub.) No matter what your reason is for seeking a guitar teacher, we believe we have the perfect one available to teach you.

Thanks to modern technology, is able to put the task of finding the right teacher straight into your hands. With reviews, qualifications, levels, ages, and subjects taught, you can learn everything you need to know about your teacher’s credentials before you even meet him or her.

Simply add your zip code to our main guitar page, and you’ll instantly see all the available teachers to choose from. Pick from the list based not only on your lesson needs, but also on your desire to drive to the lessons or have someone come to your house. You can even book a teacher to teach you guitar via Skype, and skip driving on Nashville’s interstate altogether. Not only that, many of our teachers teach more than one instrument, so if you’re feeling ambitious, learn two instruments at the same time during your lesson time.

Whether you live in Berry Hill, the Gulch, or North Nashville, we’ve got a guitar teacher waiting for you through
