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  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.

John F. Sacramento, CA

Subjects Taught

Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting

About Me

John was born and raised near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He began playing the guitar and composing music at the age of twelve. From 2002 to 2004, John attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania where he studied classical guitar performance and became the guitarist for the University Jazz Ensemble.

He received his Bachelor's Degree in May of 2012.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a private guitar instructor, my primary goal has always been the development of each students' musical creativity. Whether a student of mine hopes to become a songwriter, composer, or jazz guitarist or if they simply wish to learn guitar for their own enjoyment, I can guide them in the right direction. I firmly believe in the value of music theory, sight-reading, ear-training and music history. All of these aspects of music will be incorporated into each lesson. However, when I cover such material with students, I make sure that it directly relates to the style of music and/or material they are interested in learning.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home Studio

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect the student to provide his or her own guitar, amplifier and cables. I would be willing to bring books, charts, sheet music and anything else that would be needed to teach each lesson.

*** Specialties ***
Although I teach guitar styles ranging from jazz, blues and rock to classical and flamenco, I am most proficient as a classical guitarist/teacher. The majority of my training as well as musical interest is in this style.

Kenneth K. Stockton, CA

Subjects Taught

Cello, Classical Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Upright Bass, Viola, Violin

About Me

My philosophy of teaching has many facets:
1.) The students physical health must be taken into consideration when playing an instrument.
2.) Only through hard work and practice can a student make lasting improvements.
3.) Repetition is the key to long-lasting learning.
4.) A teacher needs to be a cheerleader and a task-master at the same time.
5.) I use the Suzuki Method in as many ways as possible along with reading exercises for most ages.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do have high expectations of my students, but I am considerate about schedules and family conflicts.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Office/classroom, seating for parents, piano - it is his so reservations won't be an issue

*** Specialties ***
I am currently training with a violin/viola master teacher who specializes in teaching the Suzuki Method. I have been training with her since 2009. My method of teaching is applicable to every field in which I teach. I believe a musician produces the best tone with the most efficiency when their body is free of any unnecessary extrinsic muscle tensions. My students learn how to produce music in very healthy way. I don't listen for all my students to sound exactly the same, rather I listen for them to sound free of tensions.
