Major instruments are piano, classical guitar, accordion. Student must have own instrument and desire to learn! *** Lesson Details *** I believe many of my students enjoy my class and are able to achieve a higher skill level because I make it a point to personally motivate them.

Best classical guitar teacher ever! Alex is a very easy-going, super friendly and straightforward teacher. He has an amazing ability to make complicated guitar techniques into very easy tasks. I surprised how much I learned just from his first lesson and how much I improved in a week. I would recommend any student regardless your age and level to study with him. You will get your money worth.

2nd Lesson

Alex is wonderful…he has such a feeling for music and being sure his pupils learn properly…one important thing that impressed me…he asked me a very good question, "do you want to learn easily or do you want to struggle learning?"…I have long nails and he explained when hitting the keys, it is very difficult to hold the wrist and hit the key properly….so I have filed my nails down…LOL….because I want to learn piano easily and most importantly learn the proper etiquette when playing.. He is a great teacher..and he teaches with passion...

Love of Music

Had my first lesson with Alex and it was great. He started out showing me what the different symbols mean and the notes. I am so glad he is teaching me how to read music, its very important. Its all very basic now but feel with knowledge of the basics it will help me understand future lessons easily…..looking forward to my next lesson…..in the meantime, drawing the Cleff, Notes and Staffs to be sure I understand, per his instructions…Love it!

William B.

Riverside, CA

About William

I am a guitarist, composer and teacher specializing in classical guitar and Latin American music. I have loved music for all of my life and my primary expression of that love is playing guitar. I currently teach private guitar lessons, lecture at San Bernardino Valley College and work as a freelance performer in the Inland Empire and greater Los Angeles area. I began my study of music at the age of thirteen when I taught myself how to play folk, rock and blues guitar. Though, to be honest, I didn't just teach myself. I had many friends who played guitar who would show me songs or correct mistakes in the songs I had learned from the internet. I remember thinking that music had a special ability to bring people together, and I became determined to understand what exactly it was that gave

Rock J.

Rialto, CA

About Rock

I'm a piano player with over a decade of experience, and have been teaching lessons for around eight years or so. I graduated with honors from California State University, San Bernardino, in 2008, with degrees in both Music Education and Music Composition.I have an affinity for Central and Eastern European Piano music and I currently play two Sundays a month at Spirit of Hope Church in San Bernardino. My teaching style runs the gamut of the piano repertoire -- from classical to broadway to jazz to the commercial music arena -- and my teaching revolves around the importance of notation and the printed page.I was originally a guitar player and have taught guitar to students as well, again, placing great emphasis on notated music, as it's far easier to move from the printed page to ...

I was very fortunate to be able to take my first acting lessons with Mara Madison. Her and her husband provided a very supportive and encouraging environment to someone with no acting experience or background. Mara is very knowledgeable and well prepared for each class. She gave me helpful advice and encouragement, as well as material to take home and study for future classes.

I am a college student, who is also an aspiring musician, and singer/songwriter. I had 10 years training with the piano, and I had two years training with guitar. Even though I am not the most professional teacher you can find, but my lesson plan is designed to help students that want to learn to play instruments fast for a talent show, a performance, or even for music writing. From basic chords to complicated chords, I am there to help you depending on how much you want to know, and I hope that music would be something for you to do in your past time.

Easton is exactly what my son needed, he is Sweet and he certainly knows how to work with children. Being a college student, Easton has all the knowledge freshed (music major), but most important is how he applies that knowledge. My son is 10 years old and not an easy kid to deal with, but Easton captured his heart first, and that was all my son needed to be attentive and willing to learn. He can either play piano or guitar which is a plus. I would not change him for anyone, he is very affordable as well.
