About Me

Ok well let the game begin :)...I'm not going to talk in third person like " Miss m. was born in blah blah and then she performed in blah blah..." :) So here it goes...Hi! You probably already know my name but I want to let you know of some fun facts about me before starting to talk about all those resume stuff!
!) every body calls me Maryam but there are 23 letters in my full name and YES that's crazy.
@) I love red.
#) I think mermaids are super-cool
$) I wish I had a pet dolphin!
%) I watched a lot of wrestling as a kid and the hardy boys are my favorites!
if you're still reading => YAY. now lets talk about my experience. I started music, theatre and art when I was very very young. I moved to different cities AND countries so I had the chance to be taught by very different perspectives and teachers that had nothing in common but music. All that time beside being humble to my teacher I could still take notes of what they did that I loved and what they did that I hated as a student. Then when I was in high school I realized I loved helping people to learn and I started teaching and using those " words of wisdom" I left for myself. I know what it feels like to be a student believe me. I still am a student in college. I understand your pains and gains and happiness and sadness and everything you go through in your journey. I'm very flexible with different genres. In fact I started as a classical musician then changed to pop then rock then metal then blues then jazz and finally I realized : OK I admit it. I love all of them and I try my best to teach you what you want to learn. Oh and you might also be interested to know that I can also speak fluent Farsi. So what do you say? Lets open the door of Narnia together. It'll be AWESOME!

*** Lesson Details ***
I want you to improve. I want you to put time and be great at what you do. I truly love all my students and I want your happiness. As of teaching goes, I'll make sure to meet all your needs but it's you who can make a difference. I don't believe in talent , I believe in hard work and practice. everybody is born with the same blank canvas it's what you draw on it over time that matters.If you let me know that you have other things than music or you're maybe busy to practice a lot, I'll give less things to practice √¬ā¬†after every 3 month ( what I call a semester) you can choose songs to record in my home studio. I don't have a fancy studio but I have enough equipment to record and edit demo songs. I'd love my students to participant in talent shows and I'm always looking to put you out there in the real world of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Any thing a student and their parents might need.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my guitar to accompany but the student needs to also provide their own instrument. I will also need the voice students to have a keyboard or a piano as a lot of voice technique exercises need the piano accompaniment.

*** Specialties ***
I'm professionally an electric guitarist.. Started with classic guitar and then changed genre to rock and metal and then started exploring jazz but I consider myself a rock solo guitarist with some spices of jazz and i still play classical. I'm also a pop/rock singer with flavors of jazz and I've been singing classic music as well.

Sean W. Davis, CA

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Theory, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

My name is Sean W. and I've been a multi instrumentalist for 23 years! I've performed opera as a soprano, Rock, funk, punk, metal, and Jazz on guitar, bass, and drum-kit. I find being able to accompany my students on other instruments to be an indispensable tool.

I my elementary years I attended a music school. There I performed "classical styles" as a solo soprano and classical pianist. My experience included performing opera with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and smaller "gigs", like weddings and seasonal concerts. I still to this day value my classical training.

In 2005-2009 I attended Berklee College of Music as a Bass Principal, majoring in Contemporary Writing and production. My experience here was amazing! There I was able to use every skill I had ever earned as a musician and expand them all exponentially. Writing and recording music made me a more well balanced teacher. I am now able to help my students explore their creative side as while improving their musical proficiency.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect an individual lesson plan based on their goals and skill level. I enjoy teaching the experienced as well as beginners. I'm easy going but i promise you will always have plenty of material to work on. My goal as a teacher is to provide a most excellent educational experience without being boring.
My lessons are mostly broken up into a few categories which include songs,(of your choosing), technique, ear training, reading, and theory.

One of my favorite thing to do is to accompany my students on other instruments.
I do not ascribe to a set curriculum. I use the Berklee practice method to assist with basics, but no two students have the same curriculum. There will be multiple instruments and a computer at every lesson at my home studio! Technology is an important aspect of a modern musicians education.

My teaching space in Davis is well stocked with Guitar, bass, and drum gear. My home studio also includes a computer that is full of music software to aid in learning.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio with drum kit, loudspeaker system with microphone and effects, bass amp, guitar amp, computer, seating for extra people.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide amplifiers, computer, mics. Students only need their sticks, bass or a guitar.

*** Specialties ***
I consider myself to be well rounded in regards to style. In Choir School I was Classically trained. At Berklee as a writing Major I was exposed to jazz, latin, pop, orchestral, specializing in rock, metal, fusion, dance and other higher energy styles.

Piano

About Me

My name is Javier and I love to teach !

I am originally from Guanajuato, Mexico and in my last year of high school, I decided to take private piano lessons with a local teacher and it was during this time period that I learned classical pieces by Beethoven and Mozart. I also took music notation and I tried a hand at composing, discovering a new way to communicate in terms of music.

After moving to the USA, I resume my music education, learning new concepts on classical, blues and pop styles, as well as chord progression and accompaniment pieces. After a year and after completing the teacher training program, I started to teach piano from my home studio.

During this time, I took upon myself two more years of intense composition study and experimenting with some of the secrets of this art, which now has become one of my passion. In 2007 I earned a diploma from this institution and in the same year I released two CDs of my own compositions: Van Gogh Sunflower's and Dimes y Diretes.

This year I have enrolled in a music program at the Music Conservatory of San Francisco, where I am expecting to learn and expand my knowledge on technique, performing, and music ensembles.

For six years, I have been teaching successfully from my home studio, teaching students of all ages and with different music backgrounds.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach piano and I specialize in classical and contemporary music styles

I am a strong believer of traditional teaching methods, however, I have learn that we all learn in different ways, so I let my students discover music by teaching them how to relate to the piano first, after they become familiar with the instrument by playing easy but wonderful melodies I start with the process of teaching music notation, scales, chords, analyzing songs, music history, exercises.

I teach all ages, I am very patient and supportive, never pushy but firm with my students goals.

About Me

With more than 20 years of teaching experience for the cello, I have taught students of all ages, throughout California and overseas. I earned a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree in Cello Performance and am currently the Principal cellist for the Camellia Symphony, California. In addition, I am teaching all levels of cello and beginner violin lessons to my students in Folsom, Napa and Sacramento.

My professional performing experience began in Medellin, Colombia in 1985 with the Medellin Philharmonic Orchestra where I was their Soloist beginning in 1992 and later on, as First Cello, from 1998-2002.

While in Colombia, I also performed with the Antioquia Symphonic Orchestra and the Antioquia Chamber Orchestra from 1991-1999.

I left my hometown of Medellin to come to the United States where I performed with the Texas Christian University Orchestra in Fort Worth, Texas in 2000. Returning to Medellin, I spent the next year with the Eafit Symphonic Orchestra.

Finally, I settled in Sacramento in 2003, coming here to earn my Master's Degree in Cello Performance while performing throughout the next year with the California State University, Sacramento Symphony.

In Sacramento, I have also performed with the Sacramento Metropolitan Orchestra and with several other chamber groups.

At this time, I am teaching all levels of cello and beginner violin. My students range in age from six to seventy years and enjoy learning in a relaxing environment at their own pace.

I incorporate several different teaching styles to meet each students' individual needs and abilities.

Suzuki for kids and traditional classical style.

Subjects Taught

Music Theory, Piano

About Me

I took piano lessons as a child and my passion for music blossomed. I have been playing for over 30 years. I have always loved writing my own songs, and finally recorded a CD of original contemporary piano. I started teaching piano in 2007, and I am passionate about teaching my students proper techniques and concepts correctly so they will become proficient at reading and playing music. I have always connected easily with children and consider myself very fortunate to be able to teach the joys of music to children of all ages! I have a Bachelor's degree in Communications, I performed as a member of a local college orchestra for 2 years, where I played second string violin and piano. I also have performed drama on stage. From 2011-2013 I have taught music classes to kindergarteners up to sixth graders at a local private elementary school. I am a member of Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), and California Association of Professional Music Teachers (CAPMT).

*** Lesson Details ***
Poorly taught lessons do more damage. Improperly trained students will often have to start back at the beginning to undo bad habits. Why not teach them right the first time? I specialize in teaching beginning students in a fun learning environment. No two students are alike, and everyone learns at a different pace. I cater to your child and will find the best way to encourage them to learn. Your child will learn how to read and play written music proficiently, while learning the proper techniques and concepts correctly the first time. I focus half my lesson time on music theory, and I use fun music apps on my iPad to reinforce note recognition, rhythm counting, and many other fundamental music concepts.

I am a member of Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) and the California Association of Professional Music Teachers (CAPMT).

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room, grand piano, upright digital full keyboard piano, patio for parents to wait.

*** Specialties ***
I like to incorporate discovery learning and step-by-step teaching methodology in my lessons, where I help the student arrive at the answers on their own, thus improving the process of concept retention, and building their confidence. My focus is mostly on building a strong musical foundation where my students will learn to read and play written music proficiently.
