Welcome video


My name is Eric Beaty, and I will be your guitar instructor.  Thank you for visiting the website for my studio, Wanna Play? Guitar Instructionan extension of my private lessons at Peachtree Learning Center in Cookeville, TN.  I'm sure you will be excited to begin your journey towards musical success as you view these pages.

I created this site as an extra "perk" for students who have signed up to take guitar lessons with me whether in person or online.  If you are interested in taking lessons with me, you can get started today by contacting me and we'll work on setting you up with one-on-one lessons with me either in person or online via Skype, Google Hangouts, or even YouTube.

Once you're all set, I'll create a free online account to this website where you can take advantage of the many features listed below.  Once again, there are absolutely no costs for this service; it's included when you sign up for lessons with me.  That's right, it's absolutely free!

Once you've signed up and I've created your free account I'll email you a username and password unique to you (and your child if you are the parent of a student) which you'll easily be able to change if you desire.  From there, I'll make you an "Active User" and you'll be able to login to your very own personal account and access the many features included below at no extra cost to you!!!

For example:

• By logging into your account and using the Calendar tab, you will be able to see schedules and register for available guitar lesson slots.

• Under the Lessons tab via the "Repertoire Tracker" feature, you can view the pieces the student is currently working on.

• And with the Practice tab, you can even create a practice log that tracks your progress and shows you just how long and how often your practice actually is.

These are just some of the great features that come with your account.  Best of all, it's included when sign up!

With such wonderful, convenient features available to you, why wait?  Sign up for private lessons with me Today!

As an additional feature, if you wish to conveniently make payments online, view your invoices, or keep track of all your transactions, you can do so by using the Billing tab. This can make payment transactions much easier to track on your account.

"But, Eric, I don't have a guitar," you say?

Need new strings?

How about picks?

Or maybe a tuner?

What about a Capo?

Can't find what you need in the music stores in and around The Upper Cumberland area?...

Never fear.  My Resources page will help you find just what you're looking for.  I update it constantly with helpful products and links I use and recommend.

"I don't have time for private lessons. Do you have anything I can learn at my own pace?"

I'm glad you asked!

Fortunately for you, I know how precious your time is.  Wouldn't it be great to be able to learn the best Tips, Tricks, & Techniques that all your favorite "Guitar Heroes" know and use on a regular basis?  I have just the solution to your problem.  Currently, I have two full-length, comprehensive guitar instructional courses available online in both download and DVD formats:

Now Available on DVD!

Bluegrass Guitar Essentials currently available in downloadable Webisodes as well as an epic 7-Disc course on DVD!

Also available:

Texas Blues Guitar available in download or 10-disc DVD


I could go on and on, but suffice it to say I'm happy you dropped by to pay me a visit, and I hope I've made your experience a little more pleasing and cheerful by the efforts I've shown here.  Music and Guitar are my passions, and I look forward to sharing them with you.

If you have any questions or just want to say hi, use the Contact link to e-mail me.  In the meantime, take the time to look around and make yourself at home.


Thanks and God Bless,
