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.

Ben G. Woodland, CA

Subjects Taught

Arithmetic, Basic Math, Elementary Math, English, Guitar, Math, Music Performance, Music Theory, Pre Algebra, Singing, Songwriting, Speaking Voice, Test Prep

About Me

My name is Ben! I have been playing and performing on the guitar for over ten years! I took guitar lessons myself for about six years and then branched out on my own, learning from everyone I could. I took every opportunity I could to play, including leading worship at my local church, and starting my own band! Since then, I have mastered over 12 different instruments, but none can compare to my love for the guitar!
I studied music in college and became a music major with a vocal emphasis when I was in my early 20’s. Since then I have enjoyed teaching and performing as I continue to enjoy learning new things everyday!

I also have been a professional college level English, ESL, and Math tutor for over 5 years! I have been an English major for several years and love to both read and write, having authored several assorted works ranging from poetry, science, and philosophy!
In addition I have enjoyed teaching and doing math since I was young! If you struggle with pre-algebra, or simply don't understand numbers, then I can help!

*** Lesson Details ***
Each person has a different learning style, and learns at different rates. Because of this, I modify my curriculum based on the needs and learning styles of each of my individual students. No two students are alike, why should their lessons be?
Growing up I had several teachers who knew a lot about what they taught, but struggled in communicating and teaching their ideas in a way that was relatable and easy to understand. It is my personal goal to deliver the same quality instruction and education with respect towards the student and their respective learning style!

I teach a range of subjects in a variety of disciplines. In music I teach everything from sight reading, music theory, and songwriting, but my main areas of focus for teaching are guitar dynamics, ear training, and practical performance techniques which are all skills used for actually playing, performing, and enjoying the guitar!

I also offer practical playing and performance training for worship leaders and church musicians that gives the same quality instruction and education used in the general curriculum, with a focus on modern and traditional worship arts material, worship team formation, and organization, and worship leader training which is open to all aspiring church musicians and worship leaders. Some skills that are taught in this course in addition to onstage performance skills are set-list planning, worship team building and maintenance, team communication, church staff and body relations, and basic worship theology and doctrine.

Academically I tutor English and Math. I specialize in helping students with anything from grammar, essay writing, and developing their writer's voice, to test preparation and college success techniques and tips! I also tutor basic math to pre-algebra.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ guitars, amps, and seating

Esther B. Sacramento, CA

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Music Theory, Piano, Singing

About Me

I'm Esther, a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself piano and singing in a choir at the age of 9. I moved to the U.S. in 1992 and studied music for 10 years receiving my B.M. & M.A. in music at California State University of Sacramento. I studied and trained with Claudia Kitka & Jackie Victorino for voice and Kirsten Smith, Joan McDe, & Angel Mamn for piano. I have performed many solo concerts in the U.S. as well as South Korea.

I find a student's strengths and weaknesses using various ways to encourage each student. I am very patient, kind, flexible, and enthusiastic and I love working with children as much as adults. I strongly support basic skills: sight-reading, pitch and tone.

I have 26 years experience teaching kids and adults private piano and 6 yrs voice coaching (early period to contemporary). I speak fluent Korean and English.

*** Lesson Details ***
My objectives: to help students powerfully communicate through the essence of music and aid the development of children and adults by finding their strengths and weaknesses and to develop their skills and show their musical talents. I emphasize basic skills, good sight-reading, and Solfege skills (Do-Re-Me...etc), vocal technique, vocal performance, and Alexandria technique. Students participate in their own recital and show their musical talents.

Lessons are held at either your home, or mine using composers from various time periods that speaks to the individual student.

A beginner lesson may be 10-15 min. for warm-ups and scales, 10-15 min. theory and 10 min. playtime. In three to six months the student will be able to read sheet music and should be able to perform simple songs.

An intermediate lesson is longer, 45-50 min., with more focus on music from a specific chosen time-period. A specialty is preparation for voice and piano auditions for entering college.

I enjoy teaching children from age 5 up to adults. I also can teach beginner oboe and beginner guitar.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, electronic keyboard, guitar, oboe

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar, oboe

*** Specialties ***
I teach the basic skills very strongly, and also encourage students and, challenge them, as well.
I also have new techniques for teaching voice and piano.

Loren R. Elk Grove, CA

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting

About Me

Loren is a well-known music instructor and has been teaching private music lessons in the Elk Grove area since 2002. He has been teaching for years and years, has two music degrees and is an active performer in many styles, enjoying a steady gigging schedule in the Sacramento area. He's "the real deal."

*** Lesson Details ***
The lessons are of the highest quality available as the student learns to read music, is guided in music theory with ear training, technique, and performance, however performance remains optional. There are options.

We often begin with songs that the student already likes. Sometimes that's the ticket. From Bach to the Beatles, Taylor Swift to Bob Dylan, there are always great entrance points.

Theory, (chords, intervals, scales, cadences, etc.) Reading music, (tabs, traditional music notation, charts), Technique, (right and left hand patterns), it's all covered. It's fun and legitimate education.

*** Specialties ***
Lessons in piano or guitar cover all popular music styles including country, rock, and classical.

Bogdan B. Citrus Heights, CA

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Music Theory

About Me

I am a classically trained guitarist with more than 30 years of experience playing the guitar. My musical interests also include jazz, pop and bossa nova. I have played in several local bands and currently am a member of a jazz quartet.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am generally laid back in my teaching style as I believe music should be a source of personal fulfillment and happiness. However, I do ask my students to practice diligently. I use a standard curriculum, including Hal Leonard for beginners and right hand studies by Giuliani for more advanced players.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a small practice amplifier for electric instruments during lessons, as well as sheet music for some hard-to-find pieces of classical guitar. I prefer students to have their own instrument and to buy their own music books.

*** Specialties ***
I have been a guitarist for 30 years. My primary interest is the classical guitar. I also perform in a jazz/bossa nova/pop trio. I generally do not use a pick as I have become proficient at fingerpicking.
