For those interested in learning about the care and maintenance of their instrument during this turbulent time, (I’m talking about humidity and temperature of course!), here is another great clinic being offered by our dear friends at Anthony Wellington/Bassology!

I highly recommend this and any of Anthony’s clinics to all students!

Another great way to start off 2021... I highly recommend this ear training workshop to all students!!

Fast Ears Are Best Ears

Another great way to start off 2021...

I highly recommend this ear training workshop to all students!!

The Best Ears Are Fast Ears Having good ears isn’t just about recognition— it’s about retrieval time and reaction time. If you’re on the gig or trying to get the music that’s in your head to come out of your instrument, “uhhhh, that’s aaaaaa G minor I think, probably or… no… wait.....

And, as always, Anthony has a unique Bassology approach to teaching seemingly complex time and groove concepts that mak...

Congratulations to current student, Erik Milam, for his recent mention in the Nashville Business Journal!

In short, Erik is one of the most inspiring people I have had the honor of working with.

In recent months I have witnessed that through the support of family and friends, and with his strong dedication to making progress on the guitar, his focus has remained remarkably steady and deliberate through all of the unimaginable challenges brought on by the pandemic. It is wonderful to get to witness this and be a part of it!

I'm super proud to see him mentioned here, and certainly that he is throwing in a special nod to his guitar and songwriting skills! 🎶🙏🏻

Ear training and tonal phrasing are incredibly important aspects of expression and are an intrinsic part of understanding music as a language.

( or you could take it a step in a different direction and learn your language as music like this pup! 😉 )

We currently have openings for a few online students! Act now if you're hoping to start with Elizabeth soon. Otherwise, we will get you on the waiting list for the Fall/Winter.

Our Story

Root Note Studio is a private guitar lessons studio, founded by Liz Lawrence. RNS is based out of The North American Guitar (formerly Cotten Music Center), in the Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood in Nashville TN. In-studio and Skype guitar lessons are offered to a wide range of students of various ages and skill levels... from absolute beginners, to seasoned, touring professionals. While all lessons are uniquely presented for the student and situation, the objective remains to teach the language of music, and to establish a strong connection between the student and their guitar as an effortless vehicle of expression.

This performance was 2.5 years ago, and this video was taken down from youtube 1 year ago, due to some conflicts. I received an email yesterday from a fan whom I've never met before, asking where the video went. 😂 So I have re-uploaded it and present it to you yet again! Thanks to Darrell Frasier for the footage. 🙏🏻❤️ #eastnashville #thefamilywash #guitarist #fender #stratocaster #flashback #daddario #roybuchanan #baltimore #sweetdreams #musician #lizlawrence Fender D'Addario and Co.
