Dawn S. Santa Maria, CA

About Dawn

I began to play the piano in 4th grade and immediately fell in love with it!  I continued with piano lessons through college. I have accompanied orchestras and singing groups and have been a church pianist for over 20 years.  For the last 14 years plus, I have enjoyed teaching students of all ages. Students will learn in a creative, relaxed atmosphere. I want each student to feel a sense of accomplishment every week and look forward to the next lesson. After just a few weeks, the beginning student will be playing some familiar songs and will know many musical terms. Within a couple months, they will be playing with both hands and moving their hands to different positions on the keyboard. I am able to teach lessons from my pet-free home or yours. Student must have a ...

Oren S. Santa Maria, CA

About Oren

I've played Music all my life, first teaching myself, then pursuing private instruction on various instruments, then completing a BA in Music in 2009. Music is important to me as an outlet for self-expression, and as a way to communicate in the universal language. I really enjoy passing on the knowledge I've acumulated over the years and seeing students grow and develop their own relationship with the Music. I also have a graduate degree in the field of education and draw many instructional techniques and approaches from the realm of classroom-instruction. I believe strongly in a personalized approach to teaching and a lot of positive reinforcement to encourage growth. My masters is in special ed., I have worked with individuals who have developmental disabilities and other ...

Nick G. Nipomo, CA

About Nick

Hi, guys! My name is Nick. I'm 29 and just moved down from San Francisco to be closer to family and friends while pursuing my career. I've had 20 years experience of playing guitar in different capacities - from playing for myself to playing in a band for fun or for money to recording at home or in a studio. Gathering what knowledge I have over the years, I feel that now I could help aid others in their own progressive learning. Learning guitar or conquering it's challenges is a skill in and of itself, I believe. You can learn how to learn to play guitar more efficiently; and I believe I can help most guitarists learn that skill. So if you're having trouble with your timing, fingering, stringing, strumming, licking, adjusting, transcriptions, modulations, compositions, etc. ...

For an improvising musician, violin tabs allow you to improvise while staying within the chord structure of a song. Tablature-style notation is most commonly
