About Me

So you want to play an instrument? Well I have taught for over 40 years and have developed special programs for you on piano, guitar, bass, voice and other instruments for you to learn.

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.

Once we have established the basics including melody and chords, we will pick songs you want to learn to play with your friends or just by yourself. We can use music books or go on YouTube to learn your songs.
I have helped students with auditions as well as performances. After only a few lessons you will hear and see things differently than ever before.

About Me

"Music is the best!" --Frank Zappa

That is the only thing I can claim to know for certain.

My ideals as a teacher are sound control, fun, and community. I teach all of my students how to play their instrument in a manner which they understand and enjoy. I demonstrate how much fun music can be once my student has the facility to create sound freely. And I inspire them to use this gift for bringing people closer together.

Since beginning my musical studies at California State University Northridge, I have been working as a musician in the greater Los Angeles area. Now over a decade later, I continue to perform and teach - enjoying the whole ride wherever it takes me. While my primary instruments are Contrabass and Electric Bass Guitar, I have technical know how on a wide variety of instruments. Some of these include the violin, guitar, and piano.

I'm also happy to teach students who already have technical facility are interested in learning about things like musicality, melodic phrasing, harmonic analysis, rhythmic accuracy, ear training, reading in various clefs, improvisation, and much more.

Let's jam!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring whatever I need to a lesson, but I expect all of my students to take the initiative to have all necessary equipment for playing. That being said, if a problem ever arises in the procuring of this equipment, I am always happy to help in anyway that I can.

Devin K. Pasadena, CA

Subjects Taught

Crocheting, Fiddle, Jazz Voice, Knitting, Music Performance, Music Theory, Ukulele, Violin, Vocal Training

About Me

I have been involved in music my entire life, and I love sharing my knowledge with others. I began taking vocal lessons from the age of 9 and have studied a variety of genres such as Musical Theatre, Jazz, Classical, Rock and Roll, and Folk. I studied Voice Performance at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.

I have been playing the violin for 16 years, and was classically trained from the start. I was involved in the Award-winning Sacramento Youth Symphony for several years before heading to Berklee. I was a member of Berklee's Contemporary Orchestra, and was involved in string quartets, Celtic ensembles, and led my own band. During college I branched out to fiddle styles such as Jazz, Celtic, and Folk, and became known for my improvisational ability.

Since moving to the West Coast, I have performed at venues including House of Blues Sunset, The Viper Room, The Hard Rock Cafe, The Pasadena Playhouse, and more. I am an accomplished songwriter, utilizing voice, violin, and ukulele in my arrangements.

My vocal instruction style varies based on the genre my students wish to pursue, and I have had excellent results. One student went on to tour in the international company of Bring It On - The Musical.

As a violin teacher, I instruct in the traditional style, and highly believe in a solid basis in reading music. As a fiddle teacher, I teach both from the page and by rote, and focus heavily on rhythm. I am happy to provide references from current students, if needed.
