Music Lessons Will Travel Private lessons in Franklin, TN
Our teaching method is based on basic music fundamentals applied to the students specific musical genre of interest. All of our teachers have either college degrees in music, or have played and taught music professionally for ten years or more. Like all music schools, our goal is to provide basic music fundamentals such as technique, chords, scales, arpeggios, reading, music theory, improvisational concepts, and ear training.
We spend the first half of the lesson teaching these basic fundamentals, and then we apply them to songs or styles of music that the student is wishing to learn. This approach helps the student retain the fundamentals taught, while still having fun, and learning his or her favorite song. If the student is not having fun, then he or she is not learning. If youre not learning, then we are not doing our job!

Testimonial by Charlotte Stremler
Andrew Hooker works great with my kids, teaching them guitar and drums. I am excited to have musical lessons for my kids by an instructor who has the level of skills and accomplishments Andrew has. He truly has a passion for the music and the lessons he brings his students. The time he saves me by coming to my home is priceless
Testimonial by Michael Stabin
Andrew Hooker is a very talented player and teacher. He really listens to his students, to see what their interests are in playing and learning. I’ve had other instructors that just try to ‘process’ the next student, without seeing where they are and where they want to go. I highly recommend Andrew’s services, you can’t go wrong
