About Ray

I grew up in a musical family in Tucson, where my dad was a high school choir teacher for 25 years. I had the privilege to be in his choirs for 2 years! I attended Northern Arizona University studying music education/performance 3 years (music scholarship), Pima College music ed. 1 year. This included 3 hours per semester of private voice. Basically a different language every semester (French, Italian, German). During this time I formed an acoustic folk/rock duo night club act and played around Tucson for several years. Then I moved to L.A. to pursue my dreams. There I played beach clubs in another duo. I also was a studio singer and produced and sold a couple of jingles. I have been a staff singer with Arizona Opera since 1992. I have been in 80 + productions/600+ performances. I just ...

mr. ray is an awesome teacher!

Mr.Ray is the music teacher at my sons' daycare and has been for the last seven years plus.His performance and ability to keep the children interested in the program is amazing! My oldest son Mikey has been at the daycare since he was a year old and is now seven and still gets excited about the annual christmas program.My youngest son Malachi loves mr. ray and talks about him endlessly when he visits the daycare.I believe he is the one who got Malachi so interested in playing the guitar! He is definitley the best and most patient music teacher we've seen and I intend on signing Malachi up as soon as he turns five!

About Ian

Hi! Thanks for taking a look at my teacher profile. Here's a little bit about me and how I can help you become the musician you want to be. I started playing the guitar at age 17. I was being paid to play guitar and hand drums for dance classes at his college by the age of 19, and was hired on to the guitar faculty of the Fairmount School of Music at the age of 24. I realized that I'd gotten good only partially through short bursts of discipline lasting up to 6 weeks or so before I had to relax and just have fun for a while, and that for most people, year-round discipline was impossible due to temperament or other demands on people's time. These observations led me to boil down a teaching approach I summarize like this: "The more you have your guitar in your lap, the better ...

Great variety of songs

Great training and variety of songs. Positive feedback for students and appropriate "homework" for practice.
Anthony M. Marana, AZ

-Beginning students will learn how to create lyrics and phrase them, and the melodic lines that will work over an accompaniment.
-Intermediate students will further learn techniques for creating melodies and their elongation, and working with more advanced accompaniment.

About Anthony

I have played guitar since 2005, playing everything from Bach to Metallica, and taught since 2009. I also have extensive experience in the process of education, having worked for a college as a math tutor for the past two years, and pursuing a Bachelors of Arts in Music Theory and Performance. *** Lesson Details *** I will teach musical ideas as well as the techniques of playing guitar to students, to help them to become a musician, rather than just a guitar player. I can teach a combination of music notation and tablature, which ever the student prefers, but I will single out the advantages of both. I will also endeavor to teach the student whatever he or she is interested in playing *** Studio Equipment *** My studio is a separate room that houses several guitars, acoustic ...
