Glenn P. Cardiff by the Sea, CA

I utilize the 'song method' to teach students to play the guitar or the bass. By teaching students songs they love, I can keep them motivated, and use those songs to demonstrate the music theory involved with creating those songs. If the song is too difficult for the student, I can break it down into a manageable arrangement.

About Glenn

I started playing guitar and bass in my early teen years because I just couldn't wait to see a live concert. I thought if I could play the songs myself, it would be just as good. Well, it turns out that playing music you love yourself is even better than seeing a concert. You can make your own concert everyday! Since then I've been fortunate enough to work with a great deal of professional performers and to play many hundreds of successful live shows. Several years ago, I decided to focus on teaching. This was a great decision, because I truly love this work. I make a real difference in peoples lives, and help them achieve their goals, and sometimes even their dreams! *** Lesson Details *** Students can expect fun lessons based on songs they love. Acoustic, electric, classical, ...

Jason M. San Diego, CA

As a bass player in a punk rock band I learned to apply the concepts I know on the guitar over to bass and slowly started introducing intervals and right and left hand techniques that are not as common on the guitar. A few of my bass students are professionals and have applied to big name music schools after taking my class.

Bijan Z. San Diego, CA

Because I have played Guitar for a long time, it was easy to play Bass Guitar. I have played Bass Guitar in different Rock ensembles and enjoyed the instrument. In this course I'll go through scales, accompaniment patterns and basic playing technique. After this course you'll be able to play a lof of songs alone and together with other instruments.

About Bijan

Hi! I believe that music is rooted in all human beings and cultures in a reach and vast variety of forms. Music unifies and engages thinking and feeling in a direct and immediate way. Music influences individuals simultaneously on different levels of consciousness and form an important device for learning, recreation, arranging of conscious and unconscious impressions and at the same time for characterizing and conveying ideas and thoughts. This as a point of departure characterizes my teaching philosophy, which strives to create a climate in which my students can experience continuous musical, intellectual, and emotional growth. As a music instructor and musicologist I demonstrate the characteristics of professional and passionate for everything related to my teaching. I am ...

Bijan is a very good guitar instructor. My daughter and I both took guitar lessons and he was able to work with us as individuals since we both had different skill levels. Bijan is very patient with his students and helped us through various learning obstacles. I highly recommend anyone that needs or wants to learn any musical instrument to take lessons from Bijan.

Bijan is a great teacher. Learning to play the cello as an adult is tough, but he's very organized and encouraging. The recital was very anxiety-inducing, but we did really well and I felt a great sense of accomplishment afterward. I am only discontinuing due to distance and time constraints.

Tom S.

For the two years that I took guitar lessons with Tom S. I found that he possessed a real sensitivity to what I, the student, wanted to do musically. Tom often went out of his way to find supplemental material to augment the learning experience. If I wanted to learn something a bit beyond my capability he'd find a way for me to build to the next skill level without ever discouraging me. Proper technique was always stressed and the payoff was worth it. His respect for the music and the craft of guitar playing is something that impresses me still.
Thomas M. Del Mar, CA

I never had picked up a Bass Guitar until I was in College. My first month I met two guys who had known eachother from high school and wanted to start a band. They both played Guitar (my main instrument at the time) so I lied through my teeth and told them I played the Bass but I didn't have room to bring it so I'd have to borrow their's. I was currently in my first semester of Music Theory and the tuning is the same as the bottom four strings of a Guitar so I just went for it. They liked me and I was hooked! I was in that band for over 7 years!

I began teaching Bass in 2005 when I joined The School of Rock in Downingtown, Pennsylvania and haven't stopped since! My teaching method uses a lot of Music Theory and popular, noteworthy Bass songs to teach students how to be rock solid as the backbone of a band. I am an expert at figuring songs out by ear so pick your favorite tunes and we can learn to play them! From 'never played before' to 'I wanna learn a Jaco tune (if you don't know

About Thomas

I LOVE to teach and I am looking for a few rad students! I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Music as well as minors in both Religion and Philosophy from Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. After graduating in 2004, I moved to Philadelphia with my band, The Gravy who had been playing shows all over the East Coast from Vermont to Virginia. I worked in both the Pro Audio and Guitar sections of a large music store which taught me all about gear, recording and live sound. I began working at School of Rock in Downingtown, PA in October of 2005. In May of 2008, I relocated to San Diego and began working at the Vista (now Oceanside) branch of the School of Rock where I was Music Director until 2012 when I left to pursuit a more rigorous performance schedule with my band

Tom is an amazing music instructor! My review won’t even scratch the surface of explaining what a fantastic teacher he is! Tom has taught our 4 children since 2008 when they started at School of Rock (SOR). When Tom left SOR and started giving private lessons, we left SOR because we saw the value Tom gave our children. He does a great job of challenging his students, yet keeping it interesting for them. (He's still teaching our kids after 6 years; they never get bored with his lessons and look forward to them every week!) Tom also does a fantastic job of blending music theory into everything he teaches. Our oldest child has a passion for music, and is now studying music at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Tom played a huge part in our son getting into Berklee and giving him the skills he needs to succeed while there. I recommend Tom to any level of student. He is simply the best!

Out of all of the music lessons and music instructors that I ever had, Tom was by far my favorite. Never did a lesson seem boring or monotonous. He knows a wide variety of genres and music styles, and shows incredible passion to Music itself . Some instructors just teach you how to play an instrument, but Tom does more than that, by teaching music theory you not only have the ability to play music, but to understand and even write it as well. I am very grateful for being able to have had him as my guitar instructor and would definitely recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning and playing music.

I've been playing guitar for 7 years, and have had 4 different teachers, and Tom has been the best out of all of them. He's always shown me different ways of looking at scales and progressions, and has always avidly pursued me to expand my improvisation skills, and has aided in my development of those skills. I would recommend Tom for anyone, no matter what genre you are trying to pursue, he knows how to make you a good player, and shows you how to appreciate all kinds of music, making you the most versatile musician you can be.
