About Me

Hello! Thank you for your interest in taking guitar/piano/music lessons.

I am a professional teacher/studio musician/performer/producer with over 17 years of private teaching experience and a graduate of the University of Miami Studio Music and Jazz program in 2002 specializing in the guitar.

I am available to teach guitar(acoustic, electric, classical) for all levels, ages, and styles(pop to folk, rock to soul, world to classical) in English, Spanish and Japanese.

Other subjects taught include bass guitar, keyboard, harmonium, classical percussion, music theory, composition(all styles from pop to classical), ear training, and studio production/engineering/mixing.

Born in Cali, Colombia on April 1979, I began my musical endeavors studying the piano at the age of 6. Early on I had the opportunity to play percussion in the school symphony while at the same time developed an intense interest in the instrument that would become my true love, the guitar.

During 1996-98 I studied jazz guitar at the New World School of the Arts music program under the direction of J.B. Dyas and Dr. Roby George. Upon graduation, I was immediately accepted to the University of Miami jazz guitar program under the direction of Randall Dollahan. It was during this time that I also refined my skills as a classical guitarist and as a composer/arranger. In addition, I began passing my knowledge onto friends and eventually began working as a teacher.

My ability to play almost any genre of music is the fruit of past experience playing with an impressive variety of music groups, including jazz combos, symphony orchestras, Andean world music ensembles, and several rock and pop groups as well. As a studio guitarist I have recorded for various artists including Jaci Velasquez, Carlos Ponce, Alexandre Pires, and Noelia.

Now also available to teach online video chat lessons through Skype.

Every one of you is unique and there are many possible paths to reach your goals in music.

With my background and music industry experience, I am able to customize my lessons for you so that you can reach your desired goals. We will take some time to find out where your passion lies in music and I will use my experience and knowledge to create a customized lesson-plan that will allow us to focus on reaching your desired goals and at the same time maintain a well rounded music education.

I find this to be key in making the lessons and your practice sessions very enjoyable, fun and laid back - knowing that everything we practice, play and talk about is in line with your goals as a student.

I will also be playing along with you and demonstrating everything that we're working on - music is meant to be shared and played with others and it is important to have that experience of interaction from early on in your lessons.

So whether it's learning to accompany yourself or others, write songs, read music, understand harmony, solo, or just jam out to your favorite songs, you will be well on your way to reaching your goals within 6 months of my lessons.

Look forward to making music with you!

Mike T. Valley Village, CA

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

I attended the Berklee School of Music in Boston, and I have a BA in Music. I am a working pro musician, regularly playing all different kinds of gigs with different bands, as well as solo, and regular gigs on TV. I have taught music lessons, and guitar in particular, for 17 years. I play all styles, but my favorites are Rock, R&B, Country, Rockabilly, and Blues (I also enjoy playing jazz, classical, and other styles as well). My main instruments are guitar (electric and acoustic) and voice, but I play keyboards, bass, mandolin, and drums also.

*** Lesson Details ***
I focus on a comprehensive approach, incorporating each student's natural abilities as well as musical interests - whether you want to learn how to play your favorite songs, learn all the skills to play with a band, or study music theory and advanced songwriting techniques, I can teach you! From playing as a hobby or to entertain friends and family to advanced college-level topics, we can cover whatever your specific goals are. Also, with student interest, I like to focus on music theory, and a deeper understanding of how songs/music work - in other words, rather than just teaching a student a song and being done with it, I like to focus on how and why the music works as it does, to enable students to put their own spin/style on it, play it in different keys, etc. I teach all skill levels, from brand-new beginners to advanced players.

Several of many possible topics of study include:

• Lead and rhythm styles and techniques -- both are essential to learn!
• How to play solos and how to improvise
• Styles and techniques of your favorite musicians/songwriters
• Playing by ear and how to learn songs just by listening to them
• Playing to accompany yourself or someone else singing
• Developing parts and techniques to play with other musicians
• Songwriting, and how to create riffs, hooks, and chord progressions
• Reading chord charts
• Music reading -- Optional, not at all essential to playing music, but a good skill to have

My teaching style is friendly and good-natured, I believe in positive encouragement and feedback, and don't believe in "guilt-tripping" or any other negativity toward students - playing music should be fun! I also love when students ask questions - I operate under the old saying that "there are no stupid questions!"

*** Studio Equipment ***
Amplifier, music stand, computer with internet connection (for playback of songs from the internet or CDs)

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide blank manuscript/chord chart/tab paper. I expect the student to provide their own instrument (along with any related things such as amplifiers, guitar picks, strings, etc.) and to provide study books that we agree upon (if necessary). I am able to supply books if the student reimburses me at the time they receive them.

*** Specialties ***
I tailor my teaching style to each student's aptitudes and interests. All music students learn differently, and it's my challenge as a music teacher to figure out what works best for each individual student to inspire them and to keep them excited and motivated about learning an instrument.

Cara B. Los Angeles, CA

Subjects Taught

Accordion, Bass Guitar, Broadway Singing, Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Ukulele

About Me

Greetings fellow music-lovers!

I hold a Bachelor's degree in music, and I come from a multi-instrumental background. If you want to learn guitar AND piano AND ukulele AND... you get the picture -- you're in the right place. I've taught lessons for over 10 years, and I'm happy to accommodate your learning preferences to your lesson. It's all about you and what you want to learn.

I do have a background in classical training, so I'd encourage our lessons to incorporate some formal training with a lesson book to work on technique and learning basic music skills. Additionally, I will supplement this training with the things you want to learn. With a bit of practice and encouragement, I'm sure I can help you reach your musical goals.

Let's unwrap your musical potential!

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be tailored to your needs and wants specifically. Each lesson is different, so I can't give an exact "recipe" of what a lesson looks like. I do like to spend some time focusing on technique, and I value musicality as well, so I'll make sure you're not just robotically going through the motions.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I own guitars -- classical, acoustic, and electric -- as well as a piano, piano accordion, and ukulele. I will use these instruments to demonstrate techniques and songs I teach you.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to have their own instruments on which to practice. I prefer students to purchase a method book if necessary, but I also am willing to send copies of learning material electronically. I will also provide my own instrument to use for demonstration.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in various forms of rock guitar, including pop, rock, indie, metal and blues. I also specialize in classical guitar, including fingerstyle.

I focus mainly on traditional and classical piano, but I also play rock, pop, and blues. I also can teach basic piano accordion.

About Me

I've been playing music my whole life, but it was as a high school student when I was asked to teach the school's guitar class that I became a teacher. Since that time I've gone on to earn several awards, played in many different types of projects, and earned a Master's degree. You might have heard my music before too if you've ever listened to a podcast, TV commercials, Indy films, or played any video games. My most successful student thus far however, would have to be Jacob Tilley from the rock band Young the Giant.

Not everybody wants to be a rock star though, and there are many aspects to the world of music. During the course of my musical adventure I've played with orchestras, been in rock, bluegrass, reggae, pop and blues bands, classical ensembles and more. I have also had the opportunity to play for celebrities and diplomats. Basically I've done a little of everything and I believe that it is this diversity of experiences that makes me a better teacher. Having worked in so many settings gives me a broad understanding that I use to help you reach whatever goals you might have.

I have also become adept at writing, recording and producing music, studying under Frank Wright of the legendary rock band Chicago. If you have an interest in creating and/or recording music I can definitely help you get there! Check out my chill/downtempo instrumental album 'Night Music' by Kparx online.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach you about playing several different instruments, how to write, how to record your own music, and how to get your music career off the ground! As a youth, I was largely self-taught so my inspiration was always to have fun. I never had to deal with the 'homework' style of practicing so I've naturally incorporated that approach to my lessons. My goal is to keep you (the student) inspired and having fun. When that happens you will become good at your instrument and feel as though you 'played' your way to success! As your teacher I will also provide almost all of the materials for free and show you great free apps to help you along with your learning and keep costs to a minimum! I know we will have fun together while you learn and I look forward to meeting you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars, piano/keyboard, drums, bass, banjo, mandolin, ukulele and a ProTools recording studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide the learning materials but I expect the student to have their own instrument, be that a guitar, drum set, etc.

*** Specialties ***
Commercial music is definitely my specialty, but I am also capable of doing various styles such as classical, bluegrass, traditional/folk. Just focus on what you want to learn and I can teach it to you.

David K. Yorba Linda, CA

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Songwriting

About Me

I graduated Fullerton College with an AA in Music and Liberal Arts. Since 2009, I have been playing shows across the U.S. in Clubs, Venues, Casinos and Festivals with several groups. Some of the styles I can play are:  Rock, Blues, Country, Jazz, Classical, Reggae, Folk, Funk, Latin and R&B. Recently, I published a book through Hal Leonard for the Solo Guitar. I have been teaching for 8 years and have helped many students grow, musically, from ages 5-70. Whatever it is in music you wish to learn, I can help you along your way, no matter what difficulty or challenge you are facing.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am usually very lenient toward the student. It is up to the student and the parent to schedule in their practicing for the week. I like to work with the student and work along with what they would like to learn (a song, scales, theory, chords, ect..). I also like to give the student some materials they wouldn't practice on their own to encourage more possibilities in their playing. This way, they can learn what they want, but are influenced in opening their horizons. The curriculum depends on the level of experience in the students playing. A beginner will get a beginning book and we will work on it until they are comfortable in reading, understanding rhythms and chords. When a student is intermediate, I like to work on their interests as well as detailing their strengths and challenging their weaknesses.After 3 to 6 months of lessons, with a good amount of practice, you can expect to see a great change in your playing. It also depends on your practice habits. I give enough material in a lesson to work on throughout the week. I have had students that practice minimally and still sound better after 3-6 months, but are doing the bare minimum. I have also had students that sound like they've been playing for 2+ years after such a short amount of time. Again, it depends on your motivation toward practicing when you are on your own time during the week. Of course I am here to help you motivate yourself. Lessons should be looked upon as a fun learning experience and not as a hard duty.

*** Travel Equipment ***
My instrument(s) and reference guides. They need their own instruments and paper/notebook.

*** Specialties ***
I teach everyone different, because everyone has a different personality. I can teach Jazz, Classical, Folk, Blues, Bluegrass, Latin, Rock (sub genres included), Funk, Reggae and R&B.

Henry C. Los Angeles, CA

Subjects Taught

Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory

About Me

I am a graduate of UC Irvine with a bachelors of music in guitar performance. I have over 7 years of experience of successfully teaching guitar and music theory to a wide range of students (from hobbyists to professional musicians).I've played in several rock bands as a lead guitarist, performed in classical guitar ensembles, and perform regularly for my church's Sunday choir. My philosophy of music is that everyone is musical. Everyone is able to play music given the right guidance, attention, and encouragement. So please let me share these things with you to bring you the gift of music! =)

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher that focuses on making lesson constructive and fun! The lesson material is focused on practical usage that makes for easy readiness to play.I cater my teaching style to each student to how they learn best and to maximize their potential for growth. My main goal is helping students find and achieve their own goals, while giving them the tools they need to continue growing as a musician. I encourage my students to choose what they want to play and develop their own style at the same time. All the while teaching proper technique to ensure great control for thoughtful and beautiful sounding play.The main styles I teach are:-Classical-Acoustic/Folk -Rock-Church/Worship Music-Jazz/Blues

*** Travel Equipment ***
A guitar and tuner is required for each student.I provide all lesson materials unless it is a student learning classical guitar. In which case the student would need to purchase the book "Solo Guitar Playing 1" by Frederick NoadIf a student wants online lessons, then a student requires the following:-microphone-webcam-stable internet connectionIf a student has a macbook or a laptop that has equipment on it, it should work as well.

*** Specialties ***
Other genres that I specialize in would be Rock/Electric Guitar music and Church/Worship music.
