Anthony G.

Pico Rivera, CA

About Anthony

As a third generation musician, I've been playing professionally and teaching for over 25 years. I've had years of private lessons, graduated from GIT in Hollywood, taken college music courses and continue to perform, record, and teach music. YOU can have fun, learning songs that YOU like, or you can learn music theory (the explanation of music) or study different styles from rock to pop to hard core to blues, funk etc. All at YOUR pace. Many of my students, started from the point where they had never picked up an instrument and have gone on to tour or earn full music scholarships. It doe
sn't matter if it's a young girl wanting to learn some Disney Artist or some burly blue collar worker wanting to learn some Clapton: YOU can have fun learning guitar while improving at a rapid rate. Contact me, I'll make learning music and guitar a very painless process.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm serious and passionate about my students learning their instrument and becoming great musicians, however, I also want it to be an enjoyable process. You should look forward to your lessons but know I'm going to expect you to practice as well. I use a combination of my own curriculum and books that are based on the fundamentals of music. We can learn to read tablature or read traditional music. A excellent way to pick music at a quick pace is by learning songs in the style you like, while learning about the keys, scales, arpeggios, and chord construction once you're able to play some songs. After 3 or 6 months you will be playing a basic repertoire of songs that interest you while continuing to progress at a steady pace in the understanding of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
North County Rehearsal Studio is a rehearsal hall with private lesson room, we have the amps to plug into and audio equipment so we can listen and learn from the music YOU like!!!  I can also come to YOUR house if the rehearsal located in Brea is too far.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to have a guitar or bass so they can practice at home with. I could bring or provide a small practice amp and a music stand and some study materials. I teach in Orange County and I live in L.A County so If I need to come to your house I can cover a big area.

*** Specialties ***
During the course of my 20 plus years of teaching, I have had to teach individuals of all levels. I have had to teach little girls Hanna Montana, and blue collar workers--Eric Clapton. Styles include, Rock, Pop, Metal, Jazz, Rockabilly, Country, Spanish, Beginning Classical and ETC!

Best Guitar Teacher!

I am 20, and I have been taking lessons with tony for almost 4 month. He really is a great teacher. He really makes guitar easy to learn and always give you confidence about learning new things. He is cool and nice, able to get you through all kinds of difficulties of learning guitar. Give hime a shot, if you really want to play guitar. He is better than any Youtube or on-line stuff.

Sarah G.

Santa Fe Springs, CA

About Sarah

Sarah was born and raised in Los Angeles and has been involved in music and theater since a young age. She spent many of her early years performing in both school and church choirs, and was heavily involved in both theater and dance throughout high school. Sarah has played roles such as "Mrs MacAfee " in Bye Bye Birdie, "Nancy" in Oliver, and "Golde" in Fiddler on the Roof, as well as doing "extra word" for Zondervan, and Billy Gram films. She holds a B.A. in Voice, and an M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. While at Biola, Sarah performed with the Biola University Chorale
for 5 years performing such works as, Mozart requiem, and Carmina Baurana. She has training in both classical and musical theater voice, and has been working with children and teens for the past 10 years.

I believe that classical technique provides a solid foundation for every singer. Within the first 3months my students will understand the basics of posture, breathing, tone placement, support, diction, and phrasing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a keyboard, and some sheet music. I would prefer the student to have a piano, and sheet music

*** Specialties ***
I have a B.A. in Classical Voice, and have taken 1 semester of pop voice

Sarah is very patient with my daughter. She tailors the class to her personality. She gets her to do the class in a fun way. She makes the class enjoyable but still focuses on her growth. She pushes Alexa enough to keep her going. She motivates her to learn. My daughter looks forward to her lessons. Recommend!

Joe L.

Bellflower, CA

About Joe

I am currently the piano and guitar teacher at Oakwood Academy in Long Beach, and the music director for the Youth Cultural Arts Foundation in Bellflower. I have a BA in Music Education with an emphasis in voice. I've been teaching for 16 years in classroom and one-on-one settings. Other schools where I have taught are: Calvary Chapel Downey Schools, Dexter Music Academy, and ABC Unified School District. I've been complimented on my ability to teach in a way that makes my students learn very quickly. I was trained in the classical and pop/rock genres. I've toured with choirs throughout Ch
ina, and the United States (including Carnegie Hall), and I have also toured with rock bands in Spain, Mexico, Central America, Peru, and throughout the U.S.A.

I've worked with various vocal coaches including Maxayn Lewis (Who has worked with Celine Dion and Britney Spears), and I am currently the lead singer (also playing guitar & piano) in the alternative rock band "Stripe Coats". In August of 2009, this band released a 5-song EP and after a month we landed a record deal with label Tate Music Group. In August 3rd of 2010, Stripe Coats released their 11-song album under the band name Kaden. This album features artists such as guitarist Michael Thompson (played for Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera), and drummer John Robinson (played for Quincy Jones, Elton John). The album also contains three songs that were recorded and produced by Producer Wyn Davis (producer of No Doubt, Sublime). Wyn Davis said, "Stripe Coats is one of the most promising new bands to come through Total Access [Studios] in a long time.  After doing records and watching young bands enter and exit the studio for over 30 years, it is STILL very exciting to work with a band that brings so much love, passion, and skill to what they do."

Stripe Coats™' songs are on rotation on Live 365 Internet Radio, and TMG Internet Radio. Our songs have also been featured on Alcoa Tennessee'™s Love 89.1 Radio and on hundreds of other radio stations, such as Refuge, CSN, and WCTL.

*** Lesson Details ***
I divide my class into 4 parts: 1. Scales/Chords/Arpeggios/Warm-ups 2. Sight-Reading 3. Theory 4. Improvisation. Depending on the instrument of your choice, and also what your specific goals are, each of these parts are customized. You will learn quickly.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught on stage. A weighted 88 keyboard is used. Free parking on street and lot.

*** Specialties ***
My emphasis was voice (Tenor) at Vanguard University. I am classically trained and trained in Rock/Pop. I've done many professional recordings and performances throughout my career.

We Love Mr. Joe!!!

Joe is very patient with my daughter. He truly wants her to learn and understand what she is learning and most of all to enjoy music. He goes at her pace while still encouraging her to set goals for herself. He will not move forward until she has mastered what she has learned.

Mr. Joe's passion for music reflects in his teaching!!

Music teacher that motivates his students.

My daughter has taken group and individual music lessons with Jose for three years. He is a teacher that meets students at their instructional level and motivates them to give their best effort in their learning. He also encourages my daughter with singing; he gives her vocal lessons in addition to guitar and piano. Jose also offers my daughter a safe learning environment. As a parent of a teenager, I greatly appreciate his patience with my daughter.

Nathan Y.

Downey, CA

About Nathan

I have been involved with music since I was a child and it has been a blessing to be a part of such an awesome art form since day 1. I can get you started on reaching the next level immediately if you take courses with me.
Being through many great teachers and programs myself i can assure you I know how to inspire talent within eager students in any age group.

*** Lesson Details ***
I plan to mold my teaching curriculum around you!
Every student/musician is different and with patient, yet productive and precise determination. I will get you where you need to be (possibly faster than you
thought possible,)
Within a few months you will be fluent in reading and the ins and outs of all the notes of the instrument as well as reading and music in general.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Bass Amp, Basses, Acoustic Guitar, Piano, Drumset

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a music stand and amplifier if necessary. I do expect a student to own the essentials for practicing purposes. (i.e. lesson book, manuscript paper, tuner, metronome, instrument, etc.)

*** Specialties ***
Most of the genres I get called to play are closely jazz/pop related all though I have delved far outside of those boundaries. I believe in being well rounded stylistically to better find your true voice on your given instrument.

I've been a music teacher for twelve years, and make a living as a professional Bass player- even took piano classes when I got my music degree. Nathan in Downey CA was completely awesome during our piano lessons. I had this ridiculous assumption that I had to always start chromatic and major diatonic scales on piano always on my first finger of either hand- which is apparently not at all actually necessary. Crazy, because that was the biggest blockade to me playing piano for the last 8 years and Nathan blew that ridiculous concept out of my mind. The smallest things that I get in the habit of and somehow that one thing got stuck in my head as the only way to do things. I feel bad for not signing up for lessons, like... 10 years ago. I practiced my scales for about two hours, and they're possibly the most boring thing to play- even for a musician. I feel like they've got some new life breathed into them.
Definitely get a lesson or two with Nathan on that expensive piano you've got sitting around. it's good to note that he explained everything really clearly and the web connection and clarity was great. I could see him being awesome for a young bass guitar student too, as he mentioned he also plays bass.

Joseph R.

Downey, CA

About Joseph

Joseph R. has 5 years of experience teaching students elementary, middle school-aged children and adults on to how to play keyboard, guitar, flute and saxophone while sharing his learning experience with them as a self-taught saxophone and flute player and his more conventional education on piano and guitar.

Joe started developing his musical talent through piano lessons at the age of 7. After only a year of formal study, he began to experiment with other instruments such as the bamboo flute, the guitar and the drums. When he moved to the United States at the age of 13, he was introduced to
the school’s band where he chose to hone his skills with the flute. Since then, he has been exposed to classical and symphonic repertoire. During high school, he joined the marching band and at the same time, found interest in jazz and alto saxophone. He decided to pursue a career in music by majoring in Jazz Studies and Performance at the University of California in Irvine where he has received his Bachelors degree in Music. He is currently performing at local jazz clubs, formal events and concerts. He would like to continue to inspire his students while nurturing his passion.
