If you or your child is interested in taking piano/keyboard, guitar, voice lessons, or if your child is in need of academic tutoring, I would really like to be your instructor! You have the option of my traveling to your home, or you are welcome to my home studio, conveniently located in Anaheim.
To tell you a little about myself, I was raised in a musical family introduced to music at a very young age. I took piano, organ, guitar, glockenspiel, and voice lessons for many years, and participated in music recitals.
I enjoyed singing, and with my music theory background, participated in vocal/piano recitals, involved myself in every school musical, joined every choir, participated in out-of-state voice sight reading competitions, and ultimately joined the New York All State Choir.
After graduating from school, I focused on teaching children how to read sheet music and play the piano and guitar within parochial schools, public elementary schools, private in-home lessons, and instructed adults for the Continuing Education Music Programs located within Rockland County, New York and Orange County, California.
Regarding my experience as an academic tutor, I currently tutor students through the No Child Left Behind Program, private tutoring for Special Education students, and home schooled my child through the Anaheim Independent Study Program from 9th grade through her successful 12th grade graduation. I am very familiar with elementary and high school grade multiple subjects, the online technology for education, and the study/assignment criteria. This is a wonderful tool to enhance students Grade Average, SAT and Exit Exam Scores.
In understanding the value of tutoring a child that is exhibiting difficulty in a subject matter, the evidence shows a significant increase in student aptitude when placed with a tutor.
I look forward to meeting you, and getting you started on your way to a lifetime of much fulfillment.

I have taught private guitar, piano, bass and drum lessons since the late 70s in Salt Lake City, where I majored in jazz guitar performance, and since 1980 in Los Angeles. I make the lessons fun. Some of my students have received college scholarships and won cash prizes for music contests. All of them had fun while learning and improving on their instruments.

While most 5 year olds were singing along to silly songs, I was entranced by the tribal drumming in the Michael Jackson's "Will you be there". When most Junior High student were listening to, well, whatever made them "cool", I was thinking of what John Lennon meant in his lyrics for "Strawberry Fields Forever." I have always had a deep passion for music that goes beyond the surface. I connect with the very soul of music.
Writing my first song at the age of 7, the creative fire began to use music to express what no other form of communication could. Struggling with the limitations of my vocal abilities at the age of 16, I decided to intensify my study of the voice, taking hundreds of private lessons in such techniques as Bel Canto Vocal Technique, Speech Level Singing(TM), Progressive Vocal Techniques(TM), and others, as well as reading dozens of books and hundreds of research articles on the mechanisms of the voice. While attending (and eventually graduating from) San Diego State University with a B.A in Music, I played hundreds of live shows, most of them coming from a residency in the heart of the historic Gaslamp District of San Diego, honing my skills as a vocalist, pianist, and guitarist. On the other side of the sound board, as an engineer, I have had the opportunity to work with such greats as Jefferson Starship, Hiromi Uehara, Dave Mason among others at one of San Diego's premier live venue "Anthology."
Since starting my love for composition at 7, I continues to write and record, not only singing, but playing guitar, bass guitar, piano/keys, drums, mandolin, and harmonica, as well as producing and engineering, and mixing the session himself. I am an actively gigging musician on Vocals, Piano, Guitar and Bass.

Music has been my passion since I was very young.
Started off as a member of the church Junior choir and then went on to take my first piano class in the first grade.
Come high school, I was already joining rock bands as a pianist and a lead singer.
Took up the guitar in December 1990.
Since then I have been playing in amateur and professional bands, occasionally doing studio work for demos, soundtracks and tv commercials, while going to the UST Conservatory of Music.
I have also been teaching for the Yamaha School of Music since 92-93, and through all the gigs, shows, concerts, studios and stages I've performed in--I know that teaching teh next generation of musicians has always been my calling.
With my teaching experience, I can say that I've dealt with all the different kinds of personalities that a student would have. As much as we all have unique character traits, I believe that every student has a unique approach to learning that when you tap into it, you will have a student that have great motivation and eagerness to learn their instrument.
My youngest student was a girl named Piper( who happens to be one of the child actors in the Disney Movie G-Force ). She said she wanted to be a triple threat. An Actress, a musician and a singer.
She was able to play Twist and Shout from the Beatles by her 3rd lesson on guitar.
Guitar being my main instrument, I have also learned over the years how to play the bass and drums. So you won't just be learning how to play your instrument but you will learn how your instrument would interact with the other instruments when you play in a band together.
My philosophy is once you learn the basics, you will be able to fly and ride on your creativity. And there will be no limits.
I have played professionally since age 13 and earned a BA in music at Illinois State University. I play all styles from classical to country,rock, blues, soul. I am best known as a Hammond organist and have one in my home studio.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
