A progressive Classical Musician
A few times a generation, there comes along a virtuoso who can connect with audiences beyond the classical realm…
Some of Patrick’s Services
Services range from in person private lessons to live performances and weddings / corporate events.
An accomplished musician, Patrick Worley has been playing guitar for over half his life. Soon after picking up this instrument, he decided to make his life’s work the exciting task of making good music founded in knowledge and understanding of music theory. It is this outlook on music that has enabled Patrick to develop into an award winning, multi-faceted artist. A performer, composer, teacher, and songwriter Patrick received a music scholarship to study classical guitar with no prior education on the instrument. During the course of his studies, Patrick was selected to study with professors and performers of international acclaim, such as faculty from the Juilliard School, Peabody Conservatory, and Cleveland Institute of Music.
Patrick’s many accolades stretch beyond classical music. Having spent a decade working in the Nashville music scene, Patrick has shared the stage and the studio with some of the industry’s great artists and songwriters. He has performed across the United States and World supporting rock, country and pop artists. As an artist, Patrick fuses his training in classical music with the real world application of popular music effortlessly, giving audiences unforgettable and awe-inspiring shows every time he takes the stage.
Patrick currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, performing around town when he’s not traveling to concertize. He plays the many venues and wedding chapels frequently in addition to maintaining an active private studio of students in guitar, piano, bass, banjo and mandolin. Patrick holds both a B.S. in Music Business and a B.M. in Guitar Performance from Middle Tennessee State University as well as a M.M. in Music Education from University of Nevada where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. He is prior music faculty at both UNLV and Dixie State University in St. George, Utah.

“A friend referred Patrick to me and we were able to set up some remote lessons via Skype since he was in Vegas and I was in Nashville. Patrick was flexible, easy to work with, passionate about teaching, and able to help me better understand guitar and music theory via our lessons. This in return has helped me as a songwriter!”Josh Miller - Cornman Music songwriter, credits on numerous hits including Carie Underwood's "Garden", Kip Moore's "More Girls Like You", and Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line's "Meant to be".
“My son has taken guitar lessons from Patrick for almost 5 years now! He is not only knowledgeable about his craft but is also very patient and encouraging. My son is always excited to go to his lesson and even has started to write his own songs. Patrick is a true professional who genuinely cares about his students no matter what their age! I HIGHLY recommend him!”Courtney Horner
