I am new to the Nashville area, and looking for a store to teach voice in.  Any ideas?  I taught for two different music stores in Milwaukee, WI for 2 years, I hold a BA in Music with a concentration in Voice, I have over 22 years of performing experience, and over 15 years of recording experience.

Hey, Fellow Teachers!


Wanted to let you know about a small book that I've written called Diamond on the 1: your guide to the Nashville Number System. It's only $7.95. The book is short, to the point, and small enough to fit in your gig bag.


If you have students that would benefit from learning the Nashville Number System, consider pointing them to If you email me at, I'll get a free copy of the ebook to you straight away for your review. 


My Best to You,



Jonathan Riggs

Experienced guitar instructor now accepting students. All levels and styles of music are welcome. I have a B.M. in music education from Berklee College of Music, a M.M. in performance from the University of Ma as well as 5 years of Private study with Charlie Banacos. Lessons will be custom designed to meet the individual students' needs and goals. Whether you are a novice, a songwriter looking to increase your instrumental vocabulary, or intermediate to advanced player interested in higher levels of conceptual instruction, I will design a course of study that works for you. Areas of study include Theory, Guitar Rudiments (Scales, Chord Voicings, Arpeggios, "Fret board geometry", etc.) Improvisation, Sight Reading, Ear Training, Right Hand Technique, Nashville Number System and advanced Jazz concepts and harmony.

Hey folks - I have a friend who's looking for a good guitar instructor. She'd be a beginner with no plans to be a pro, so she needs someone who doesn't teach simply the traditional approach but who is also comfortable teaching tablature and/or simply by ear. Who would you suggest here in town. Please send me any ideas here: Thanks.

Hey all - did you hear about the big event in Nashville for songwriters/engineers/students, etc.? - please get the word out. It should be amazing!

We are (myself and Tom Jackson of Tom Jackson Productions) are what you would call Performance Coaches or Live Music Producers. We are NOT choreographers, vocal coaches or 'drama dudes'. We work with artists on their live show, finding and creating 'moments' in the show that the audience will relate to and remember. How you produce a song for radio and how you perform it live can be very different. You have time at a live concert to really let the song breathe and give it space, to change the pressure on the audience, to explore that really cool bridge that goes by too fast, to get the audience involved in some way, to create a 'trade-off' between 2 guitar players....any number of things that you can't do on a record. Audiences don't come to concerts to just hear music. They come to experience moments, to be captured and engaged and even to be changed in some way. We're able to help artists learn how understand their audience and give them the practical tools to put on a great show. Since 95% of an artist's income comes from their live show (unless they 'hit the lottery' with a huge hit), it's important to spend time making the show great. Good shows sell more product, create more fans, keep people going to your website, and get you booked again. Check out or for more info.
