Private Instruction for the Piano, Guitar, and Bass

My name is Nathan Hughes and I have been teaching music to children and adults since the late 1990's. I specialize in private instruction for the piano, guitar, and bass. Sight-reading, ear training, and music theory are the basis for my teaching techniques. I also specialize in teaching lessons that are fun and exciting! It has been shown that students achieve more when lessons are not only engaging and challenging, but also fun and exciting!
I am committed to you and your goals. Whatever your goals are - playing in a church, school, or garage band, professionals who want to expand their knowledge of theory, or someone who simply wants to learn to play an instrument for their own enjoyment - I can help. My education, combined with my experience in teaching and performing, has given me the ability to work with every age, style, and skill level. Schedule a lesson. I’m confident you’ll be glad you did! .

"Nathan’s knowledge of music theory and his talent for teaching have been a huge help to my playing, even as someone who has worked as a professional in this industry for many years."

In Home Skype Lessons

For those intermediate to advanced guitarists and bassists looking for an instructor to come to their home, interactive on-line lessons using Skype or similar video conferencing software is quickly becoming the future of music instruction.

Private Studio Lessons

For those living in Charlotte or the surrounding areas, I offer traditional private studio lessons. Private one on one instruction has long been proven as the most effective method for learning to play a musical instrument.
