Music on the Move Announces June 24 LGBTQ+ Showcase Lineup

Last month, we told you that Music on the Move Studios was planning a special LGBTQ+ edition of their all-female showcase, set to take place at BentoLiving Chestnut Hill on Friday, June 24 — the night before the official kickoff of Nashville Pride WEek.

Class is in Session: Finding the Right Music Teacher

Sooner or later, and no matter where you are in your musical journey, we all could use some guidance.

Last week, Luke kicked off the breakdown of Muze’s “10 People Musicians Need on Their Side” series by helping you learn what to look for when shopping for the right producer. But, before you can even get into the studio… you have to know how to perform!

So, in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, I decided to ask a couple of teachers how it’s done!

Erin McLendon and Caitie Thompson are performing artists and the co-founders of Music on the Move Studios. Based in Nashville, Music on the Move is a female-owned business which helps artists grow their careers through educational and performance opportunities. Those opportunities include private and DIY lessons – Erin teaches voice, while Caitie instructs students on a variety of instruments.

I sat down with Erin and Caitie to learn more about the role of a voice or instrument teacher. In the process, they helped dispel common myths, while showing the correlation between learning proper technique and building confidence.

Created and hosted by rising Americana/country artist Erin McLendon, Music on the Move (formerly Women on Fire) serves as a pivotal platform for local female musicians and entrepreneurs to share their talents.

So, I figured: what better way to make it easier for the next generation of songwriters, than to have all the questions I have answered by a professional! That professional is my amazing business partner — and guitar goddess — Caitie Thompson

What Every Music Teacher Wants You to Know Before Starting Lessons

Music on The Move Studios is known for a few things: An all-female showcase at City Winery, a podcast called Paradox Jukebox, a soon-to-be TV show, and a music education studio. My business partner Caitie Thompson and I have been teaching private lessons for a combined 15 years of experience between us. We have seen every kind of student you could imagine, so I thought it was only appropriate to write this with Caitie, and to also give advice to anyone looking to start lessons.

So, here are a few things that we, as music educators, want you to know before you begin lessons with us!

Who & What is Music on The Move Studios?

It’s a legitimate question that we get asked often. Our (upcoming) website officially says:

“We believe that the ability to be exactly who you are and paint a picture of it with a melody, some chords, and lyrics shouldn’t be a luxury. Music must be available to anyone who wants it.”

But what does that mean exactly? Well, let me break it down for you…
