About Jan

Learning an instrument in a music recording studio environment has many advantages and is a lot more fun, creative and rewarding. From your teacher jumping on different instruments
for you to develop your independence and timing as a player and
recording prepared projects you've been working on,
to playing at a higher volume to get to know your gear's real sound, the rocking' memories you'll walk away with will fuel your inspiration to practice and improve fast. My focus is to help you achieve your goals on the guitar.

With each individual student, I offer exercises, songs and techniques to practice that will help you to immediately begin seeing positive results. I believe that anyone can play an instrument and sing and take their next step in music. It makes a ...

Super Happy

I am currently a drum student of Jan's and I couldn't be happier. He is a really great teacher. He obviously cares a lot about what he does and he is very good at understanding what each student needs individually to keep moving forward at a pace that is right for the student. He strikes an excellent balance between keeping the fun part of music alive (playing music!) and making sure that you receive solid technique instruction as well. He is super excellent at helping you understand how the things you are learning will build together over time (this helps a lot when some things are frustrating to make your body and mind do at first). You do have to do some exercises, but his focus is all related to working towards having fun and playing music. If you're a drum student, even as you're getting your first beats down he plays guitar with you right away (the first lesson in my case). It's really terrific to get a feeling for what it's like to play with other people from the very beginning. I can be self conscious about doing things around other people before I feel like I know what I'm doing. Playing with him right from the beginning helped me toss that aside without it taking hold of me this time, because, well, it's pretty darn fun to be completely honest.If you take lessons from Jan I am pretty sure you will feel very fortunate, as I do, to have found such talented and supportive instructor.

Feedback

Speaking for Malcolm: Malcolm is enjoying the lesson sessions with Jan. Speaking for myself: I appreciate him always being timely and teaching my son by using the type of music that he is interested in. This helps him to stay interested and motivates him to practice.
Lucas G. Los Angeles, CA

Can teach beginner to advanced, various styles, emphasis on improvisation and theory. You need your own instrument and the capability to practice daily!

About Lucas

Hello! My name is Lucas and I am a very smart guy who is also nice. I have years of experience teaching and have an enthusiastic passion for it.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would provide my own instruments, instrument stands, music stands, music paper and writing materials.

I would expect/prefer students to provide their own instruments and musical listening equipment (CD player, iPod, etc)

*** Specialties ***
I can teach a wide range of styles including but not limited to rock, jazz, blues, funk, classical, country, and different 'world' music styles. Some examples are Latin/salsa and African guitar and percussion. I also specialize in teaching musical improvisation, songwriting, composition, and production.

I use student-specific musical instruction texts ...

Jared J. Burbank, CA

Drumset only. I can teach students a variety of basic drum grooves in a variety of styles and can help students understand how to incorporate fills into their playing. I can also teach reading basics.

About Jared

I have been happily playing music for over half of my life and it has always been the light in my day. Now it is my hope to shed that same light onto you or your child. I am a very friendly and fun teacher with a great deal of professionalism and patience, even more importantly I love teaching and music with a passion.

I have been playing an instrument since the 4th grade (cello) and, as I learned how music works, was slowly able to pick-up a greater variety instruments with an increasing degree of ease. In high school, I decided to pick-up the guitar just to "have fun and rock out". I joined a band, played in the high school orchestra, joined the high school jazz band and began to practice songwriting and cover songs. Still, it was not until after I took my first class on ...

Jared has been helping my 14-year old daughter become passionate about playing cello again. My daughter had taken years of conventional school lessons and had all but given up due to boredom and monotony. She has only had a couple of lesson from Jared but so far, so good. Even the tone in my daughter's voice regarding her cello has improved so much. She sounds excited and proud regarding playing and I am so glad!

So, Jared is a one-of-a kind person who is able to tailor his craft to you. He is observant and watches you carefully, "tuning" his coaching to exactly what you need, when you need it. He is affable and easy to learn from. As if that isn't enough, he is - hands down - an excellent musician. He is a pioneer, willing to stretch to use technology to make things work for his students. Recently we managed a Bossa duet (guitar and cello) via Skype. He is exceptional and has my highest recommendation.

Drum · In home
Ben got me launched in rock and jazz drumming. I'd never played drum set before, and he had only six weeks to help me prepare for my 8th grade jazz band audition. He cut right to what I needed to know and gave me confidence to perform well in the audition. Twelve years later I'm drumming lots and still relying on fundamentals I learned from Ben. His talent is undeniable and he has benefited from outstanding music instruction himself. I remember him as a teacher who has high standards and will urge you to get better, yet he's patient and makes lessons a lot of fun.
Pavel V. Los Angeles, CA

I have over 15 years of drumming experience. I graduated from the Berklee College of Music where I studied drum set performance with Dave DiCenso and Mike Mangini.

Excellent teacher. Thorough instruction. Above all, he has a pleasant but appropriately stern approach to lessons that keeps you on your game. He truly inspires you to go for gold as he expects nothing less!
Jason C. Los Angeles, CA

Basics of drumming? Rhythms? Play with songs? Rock? Hip-hop?

I began playing drums in 1999, teaching myself in the garage. I took 2 years of drum classes in college and performed in a nationally touring band as a drummer. I have taught drums to a wide variety of students with a wide variety of musical interests.

About Jason

I've been playing music for over 20 years. I've been teaching for over 10 years. My main instrument is guitar but I also play and teach piano, drums, uke and bass. I play with two acts in the area: Nataly Lola (acoustic covers) and We Were Superheroes (original rock). I am constantly listening to new alternative music (98.7 and AltNation) as well as learning the classics for the cover band. I never have a bias for a song and am always surprised when the pop song on the radio is actually quite clever when broken down to its roots. As a teacher I cater to the student. I've taught Old Country, Jazz Theory, New Metal, Russian Ska (yup!) and anything else that you want to learn.
