From easy beginner to the most advanced, I will help you to learn the songs you love! Whether we use the most modern technology in my professional recording studio or just some chords or perhaps learning to sight read something for a talent show, I can take you all the way to the highest performance level. Your goals are my goals.
I have studied with some of the most famous teachers in the world, including Charlie Parker's pianist Walter Bishop Jr. and Dizzy Gillespie's musical director Mike Longo, among many others.
I also have the experience of over 400 gigs a year to bring to your lesson. I have performed on piano, guitar and bass and vocals with famous stars and some really great bands which will help me answer many of your questions. I am currently still working, teaching and recording all the time. I also have a professional recording studio in my home which you can take full advantage of.

I have been playing music since I was about 13 years old. I initially started out on guitar but I quickly picked up mandolin, banjo, and ukulele thanks to the great theoretical tools I'd learned from my first teacher! I started studying alto saxophone around the same time I picked up guitar and began extensively studying violin a few years later.
I quickly began writing songs and at 15, I recorded my first album of original material with production help from Grammy award winning producer/guitarist Joe Reyes. Joe and I would go on to make four other records together and I would wind up doing string arrangements for one of his albums as well.
While still in high school, I began playing with a number of bands in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas as well as a few groups in Austin, Texas all while still playing in my high school's orchestra! At 18, I got to tour the country playing violin/saxophone/musical saw with the Austin band Moth!Fight!
I earned my Bachelor's degree in music composition at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. At Trinity, I was able to fully explore my love of composing while honing my technique at classical violin and classical/jazz guitar. During this time, I was voted Best Instrumentalist by San Antonio's alternative weekly (the San Antonio Current). I also saw many of my compositions performed at many classical/new music festivals such as Seamus,ICMC, Spark Festival, and EMM and by ensembles such as the SOLI Chamber Ensemble.
In college, I also taught a "School of Rock" class at the Magik Children's Theater. In these classes, I taught young beginning instrumentalists how to play a number of pop/rock songs in the span of two weeks.
I moved to Valencia, California in the fall of 2012 as an MFA candidate in Music Composition at the California Institute of the Arts. Since moving to LA, I've had the opportunity to perform with internationally renewed pop bands such as Faust and Vinyl Williams in addition to performing/collaborating with well known composers around the city. I also have the wonderful job of co-teaching a musicianship skills class at CalArts!
As you can see, music is my life! I have experience playing a number of genres and I want to help you find your musical passion!

I have 40 years of Music Educational experience. Starting with a B.A. in Music Education and a B.S. in Music Composition & Theory. Both degrees are from Eastern Washington University.
I had the pleasure of teaching at King's Schools in Seattle, and Christ the King Academy in Poulsbo, Washington with a total of 8 years between the two. This included teaching Beginning and Intermediate Band classes for Elementary students. Band classes for the Jr. High and High School, Jazz Ensembles, Brass Ensembles, Orchestra and String Ensembles.
I also taught Choir for Elementary, Jr. High and High School, along with a special Vocal Ensemble.
Another fun thing I got to do was also coach teams in football, baseball, gymnastics, track and golf.
Since my Senior year in College I have been teaching private music lessons on many instruments. Because of my musical training, I am able to play and teach on all the Band and Orchestra instruments, including Combo instruments.
Another avenue that I've been able to enjoy is playing music professionally for Music Theater and my own concerts that I call "Bob H. in Concert" where I use a combination of Music, Stand-up Comedy and Ventriloquism.
I love to share what I've been able to learn through the years with all of my students and help them reach whatever goals they may have in music performance.

Hi there :)
My name is Ray. I am 25 years old, from Queens NY. I studied classical music for many years as a youngster at Aaron Copeland School of Music in the college prep program. Here I was also introduced to jazz, and around the same time began experimenting with synthesizers. Throughout high school, I was a very sought after musician and performer. I went on to study Electronic Production and Design at Berklee College of Music in Boston.
I've been successfully teaching many instruments and levels of proficiency for 10 years now (yes, I started when I was 14!), and can safely say it is my passion.
I really enjoy reading science, math, and philosophy books, and currently work in the LA music industry producing pop music.
