Milton J. Corona, CA

I've been teaching guitar for over three years. I've previously been a part of two bands during my formative years and recently have been a session guitar player for four upcoming indie rock, alternative, and R&B/Soul albums.
For children and beginners, I use the Mel Bay publication Children's Guitar Chord Book as well as Hal Leonard's Guitar Method series. I also apply basic music theory that includes learning the Circle of Fifths and basic reading of sheet music.

For intermediate guitar players, I utilize the Hal Leonard Guitar Method series to teach Power Chord Formation and Delivery, Fingerpicking, Pentatonic Scales, Reading Tabulature, and tackling some of classic rock and jazz's favorite tunes.

For guitar lessons at my studio, I leverage Guitar Pro to project and display tabs and play-alongs with ease. For in-home lessons, I use the software for select lessons as we begin song selection and play-alongs.

I can't wait to rock out with you as you find your inner ...

About Milton

Music is the means to create a portal into our souls, so that we may see each other for who and what we are, not merely as what we do. I want to help foster those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young how to tap into their own soul portals through music so that they may find others' as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument playing, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it! As a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a double major in Music History & Ethnomusicology and African-American & African Studies; a former co-host of the popular hip-hop radio show ATF Radio: All Things Fresh on KDVS 90.3 FM; a former Music Director of The Afterglow of UC Davis; and a current Vocal ...

Wonderful instructor! Milton has a great attitude and is a joy to be around. My son loves learning from him and we are very thankful for finding such a patient, creative and skilled instructor. Student's Review - Milton is an exciting and fun guitar teacher. He has exceeded expectations and made otherwise bland lessons interesting and fun. He is always quippy and easy to be around. Having him as an instructor has made me grow to love the guitar even more.

Milton is a great teacher! He explains everything, teaches you theory and proper techniques. He is down to earth and makes you feel comfortable. He pushes you out of your comfort zone, but in a good way so that you can grow as a singer. I am very glad I chose to take lessons with him!

Brianna is great with my son who is almost 5 years old. She teaches in a fun style, my son never looses attention. She thought him to write, read numbers and to be disciplined. I am really happy to see his growth in music.

Becky is awesome. My job takes away most of my time and because of that I haven't been able to be very regular in attending all sessions. She had been very patient with me and adjusted the pace as needed for a student like me. She is an enthusiastic teacher and I would recommend Becky as the first guitar teacher for students of all ages. Keep rocking Becky!

Becky knows exactly what she's doing, is very reliable, and super nice! I enjoy taking lessons with her very much. She understands what kind of music I like and what I want to learn. Taking lessons with Becky is like learning from a great friend. She is easy to learn from and doesn't rush me or go to slow. I definitely recommend her as a teacher:)

Ryan is an engaging instructor whose flexible teaching style can meet the needs of students at any level. I can read music, but knew nothing about guitar. He set me up for success from the very beginning and presents enough challenge and encouragement to keep me going. He is personable, friendly, helpful. It's easy to see why he works so well with everyone, from kids to seniors!

Excellent and patient teacher!

Ryan is a very talented musician and is able to share that through his teaching. He is very articulate and patient during each lesson, which I especially appreciate. And he pays attention to what your personal goals might be and the type of music that you like. I look forward to my weekly Monday night lessons with Ryan! It gets my week off to a fun start!
