Do you just want to get started learning how to play as fast as possible? Do you just want to get going without dilly-dallying around with stuff that doesn't interest you? Then you've come to the right place. I tailor my lesson plans to fit each individual students specific wants and needs. I don't use a cookie cutter approach since everyone learns and understands musical ideas in different ways. My strengths are extreme patience and an ability to find different ways to explain a concept that will make sense to each student individually. First we assess your musical goals then tailor a curriculum that will help you to accomplish those goals in the most efficient way. Above all else I make learning to play fun and fast!

About Me

I am primarily a composer, guitarist, tenor, pianist and percussionist and I love sharing what I have learned with others and watching my students develop and grow. My goal is to teach my students until they are better than me, so I hold no secrets, tricks or techniques back and I devote my time and energy to help others become the best musicians, artists and people they can be.I have a BA in music composition and a BA in music history, both from California State University, San Bernardino. I play the guitar, bass, piano, drums, orchestral percussion, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, recorder, harmonica and didgeridoo with varying levels of proficiency and have experience in music theory, songwriting, recording, MIDI, arranging, singing (contemporary, broadway and opera), and acting/performing. I have performed in The United States, Austria, Spain, Australia and New Zealand and have 13 years of experience, development, mistakes and successes to offer my students. I love learning new things and have been teaching as a profession since 2007. I am also First Aid & CPR certified, Live Scan fingerprinted, FBI background checked, Safe Environment trained and a Child Abuse Mandated Reporter.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do not use a set curriculum. I prefer to discuss goals and music with my students and their parents to determine what genres, styles and techniques they are most interested in. I then use techniques I have gained through experience along with songs and classical exercises to develop strong technique, a developed ear and the ability to read music. I do expect students to be disciplined, practice regularly, and be prepared for lessons, enabling them to expect the same from me. Whether a student wants to be a classical virtuosi or learn how to play a song they heard on the radio, I will keep the lessons fun and interesting for anyone willing to practice and learn, and I will always to my best to cater to the student's individual needs and goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide all copies of music, handouts, exercises, etc. Students are expected (when applicable) to have an instrument in good, working condition.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
I form all of my lessons around being able to learn, memorize and play songs, read written musical notation (along with sight-reading & technical exercises), and improvisation (based on scales and exercises).

For guitar and it's relatives (bass, mandolin, ukulele, banjo) I can teach any style or genre of music, including modern tapping techniques, and I also teach TAB notation.

I teach both classical and popular piano, usually combining classical sight reading exercises while learning both classical and popular repertoire.

I have experience acting and singing on stage in both non-musical and musical productions, as well as five years of classical vocal experience singing in high school and collegiate ensembles. Being in these environments has equipped me with the tools and exercises to be able to teach everything from basic singing to fundamentals in broadway and opera.

I also have a small studio in my home where I write and record, providing me with the opportunity to also teach recording, songwriting and music theory.

About Me

At the early age of twelve I began beginner guitar lessons through a privately owned guitar shop near my home in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. By fifteen I expanded my guitar know-how through lessons with virtuosic guitarist Trey Alexander. These lessons with Trey introduced me to playing blues, rock, jazz, and metal styles of guitar. Around seventeen years old I began classical guitar studies with Skip Redding and piano lessons with Michael Schmaldienst through Penn Manor High School. I also sang in the high school choir and played guitar in the jazz band. To prepare for musical studies in college I began advanced theory and composition lessons with Dr. Simon Andrews at the Pennsylvania Academy of Music. I decided to stay near home for college and I was admitted to Millersville University for a B.A. Music Performance degree with a concentration on classical guitar.

I continued to sing, play piano, write songs, learn drums, bass guitar, banjo, mandolin, and further my musical theory studies. At one point, I was in two local rock bands, singing in choir, assisting my guitar professor Marcia Englar with guitar ensemble, and working on my solo classical guitar repertoire. Diversity in music has always been important to me and I pride myself on knowing a wide range of guitar and other musical performance practices.

After I earned my undergrad in Music Performance from Millersville University I auditioned at the University of Redlands here in Redlands, CA. By August of 2012 I was packing my car with all of my guitars and hitting the road for Southern California. My experience with music at the University of Redlands has has been phenomenal. I take lessons with Stuart Green and Bob Bozonelos, assist undergrad students in guitar, music theory, and history, and sing in the University choir. I love where I live, I love music, and I want to share my knowledge and experience with the world.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal as a guitar instructor is to teach YOU what YOU want to learn. Whether you want to lean chords and play guitar at church or learn jazz tunes and play in a jazz band. I can teach electric guitar, acoustic guitar, but my classical guitar skill is very advanced. The more specific your musical needs the better! I also have great experience with kids and teaching beginners if the students desire with the instrument are not specific yet.

I am very much a laid back guy, but I believe in doing homework and CONSISTENT practice. This does NOT mean a demanding "six hours a day" practice routine but rather a very focused brief practice period 4-6 days a week. Every student is different and I want everyone to have fun and enjoy the best instrument in the world. If the student has fun and keeps focused I firmly believe in noticeable improvement almost immediately!

With respect to guitar I have multiple books and literature in my library students may use. These guitar books cover beginner to advanced techniques. When it comes to bass guitar, banjo, or drums I mostly teach off book but I am more than able to introduce literature on these instruments as well.

I live, breath, and think music all day everyday and it would be my utmost honor to share my musical skills with you!

About Me

Hey, I'm Michael! I'm 22 and I've been teaching modern music to students of every age and skill level since 2007. I've also been performing with all types of amazing musicians right here in the Inland Empire since I was 10 years old. I've gained valuable experience touring up & down the west coast in a variety of productions. Along the way I've been lucky enough to work alongside some of the most talented musicians, producers, promoters, songwriters, performers and teachers in the music industry today. Now, with a mastery of a wide variety of instruments and unparalleled experience performing in every type of musical act imaginable, it's my goal to pass on my knowledge to the next generation of modern musicians.

For your first lesson we will assess how much skill you already have on your instrument of choice. We'll discuss what types of bands & artists you already enjoy listening to and what type of musician you'd eventually like to become. Right from day one we are going to dive right in and start making music!

From there we will put together a custom tailored lesson plan that's as unique as you are. We will focus on what you will enjoy learning most and mix in some super fun and challenging exercises taken right out pop-culture's most exciting and famous tunes.

Students who learn the music they know and love are proven to learn faster, retain information longer and have more fun compared to students who attend "ordinary" music lessons which focus on book work and boring exercises through repetition. Custom lesson plans assure the best possible chance of success in the ever-changing modern music industry.

Students are required to have enough equipment to be able to successfully practice on their own... how else can they get better? However, for those who are just starting out or are not sure what to buy yet, I do offer consultations for students individual needs as part of their first lesson. Get custom recommendations from an industry pro about where to get the best deals on the best products.
