Classical guitar was my first musical focus. Teaching it brings me great joy.
I received the highest awarded scholarship to MTSU for classical guitar studies. I have studied with John Pell, Bill Yelverton, Stanley Yates and Mario DaSilva
About Zander W.

In 2007, after finishing my undergrad in Commercial Music at Belmont University, I was offered a position teaching at a local music store. Fast forward to now and I have had students as young as 5 and as old as 80. Every student has been a lesson to me and has helped me perfect my craft. During covid I wrote a book on acoustic guitar and songwriting and adapted to create a very efficient online lesson experience for all the instruments I teach. Please reach out with any questions you may have about my teaching style or availability. *** Lesson Details *** I believe the ability to play an instrument is only part of musicianship. I also strive to teach my students to understand the music theory related to what they are learning. I work hard to make sure that my students are doing everything in the easiest way possible. I want to ensure that they are able to progress quickly enough so that they can see the difference. The most rewarding moment as a teacher is when a student points out how hard something once was and how easy it has become. *** Studio Equipment *** Music store environment. No pets. *** Travel Equipment *** I travel with all teaching equipment needed but a music stand is recommended for the lessons and for practicing. *** Specialties *** I am a very versatile teacher and player but I am often recommended based on my knowledge of Gypsy Jazz, Swing, bluegrass, country and rock teaching acoustic guitar, electric guitar, banjo, mandolin, dobro and ukulele
