Kyle K.

Cleveland, OH

About Kyle

I love music! To me, it's a way of life. From listening to playing to writing and of course teaching. I grew up with music at school and home. My dad was a piano player and teacher so music has been a part of my life since day one and I want to share what I have learned. Everyone has a unique musical talent and I enjoy helping them find it. I believe that anyone can be an excellent musician. Playing an instrument should be a fun and creative adventure. Whether it's strumming at home, playing out in the clubs, or writing the next big hit, I will do my best to get you there!

My musica
l life began when I was in 5th grade and my dad bought me a saxophone, which I played for over 10 years. I quickly learned how fast I could improve if I simply kept playing. When I hit my teen years I fell in love with rock music and mowed enough lawns to buy my first guitar. I jammed and wrote songs with many other musicians and several bands. We played countless shows and released a few albums. Now I write music for TV, Film, Video Games, and other media outlets and I'm having a blast!

I started teaching 7 years ago and found that it is one of my favorite things to do. Helping others grow into great musicians is rewarding and fun. I've learned that from grade school to retirement, each student is a unique and special individual. My lessons reflect that fact so that we can reach all your goals together. *My personal goal is to get my students to understand and write music that will stay with them and encourage them to continue.

All lessons take place in my fully operational Digital Recording Studio and dedicated lesson room. Gaining real world playing experience through technology is a definite advantage over traditional lessons. This also allows us to capture ideas when songwriting and provides a unique practice experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
Everyone is different, and every lesson should be suited to fit the individual.

Depending on the type of lessons (guitar, bass, music production, theory) the style teaching will be very different. It's all about YOUR goals and needs. I will get you to where you want to go!

Each student is going to receive lessons based on their preferences of genre and style of music they desire to play. I expect my students to practice regularly and have a good time as their abilities and knowledge grow. By working together, we can focus on goals and problem solving to get you to the next level of play. Most importantly, we are going to have a blast while we learn to play music!

Imagine looking back years down the line, listening to something you wrote and hearing the improvements and your own personal music history. That's what writing and recording as you learn is all about.

*We'll start slow and build your knowledge base with each lesson.
*You can expect to understand what you are playing AND be able to Write Your Own Songs.
*You will be given everything you'll need to succeed.

I have several reference books, videos, and charts; plus I can show you smart phone apps and websites that will help you learn and practice! We will learn songs, write songs, and record songs. I provide jam tracks for all my students to play along too and offer to record their own music for the same purpose. We also keep a running journal that we use each week. This allows the student to look back, see improvement and be encouraged to continue!

Within 6 months you can expect to understand how songs are built (including chords and scales), be able to play several, and feel comfortable with trying your own skills as a songwriter or guitar player.

Let's start playing!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Comfortable and fully operational Digital Recording home studio & music room w/ recording capabilities, computer, keyboard, amps, books, videos, various guitars and bass, tons of music to listen to and study, FREE Wifi and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not travel. My studio is the #1 advantage for learning!

*** Specialties ***
*Instruments: Rock, Blues, Metal, Indy, Folk and Acoustic styles.
*Production: Recording, Mixing, Mastering, Programming.
*General Music: Theory, Songwriting, Producing.

I personalize all my lessons for the students needs and interests. I use several different reference materials including: The Ultimate First Guitar Book, The Guitar Handbook, Shredding Guitar, Guitar Solo Strategies, and more. All my students learn theory and how to use it in song play and songwriting. I have them write short songs, record them, and finally use those songs to jam out their scales and use theory.

Kyle is a fantastic guitar teacher! He takes the time to show you how to play guitar with good fundamentals, and teaches you a little bit of music theory along the way without making it complicated. I tried learning on my own using online TABs and Youtube videos and a game called Rocksmith. This was a good start, but eventually I hit a wall and wasn’t really progressing. Kyle has really helped me develop my skills. We went over all the basics like how to hold a pick, how to hold the guitar, how to play single notes vs. chords, palm muting and alternate picking. I was missing all of this technique before and I was actually making playing the guitar more difficult than it needed to be! Kyle explained it all in a very easy to understand way and gives you as much detail as you need. I like lots of detail, so we went over everything! He knows a lot of little tips and tricks from playing as long as he has and this is the kind of priceless information you can't get elsewhere. He's very easy to talk to and has a breadth of knowledge on all kinds of music. We normally geek out about anything from Jimi Hendrix to 90’s music to more modern music and everything in between. I can’t say enough about how knowledgeable he is – highly recommended!

George F. H.

Cleveland, OH

About George F.

I've been playing and singing music professionally for about 20 years. As a family man and father of two, I also I earn my living and support my family with music. I have a very student-driven teaching style, work with students of all ages, with focus on helping the student achieve his or her individual goals, small or large. I try to keep the lessons fun but focused at the same time.

I bring a balanced and personalized teaching style to my lessons, based on a well rounded education and wide range of real-world life experience. I have a B.A. in Liberal Arts and have performance experien
ce on many different fronts, from local rock cover bands to Top 40, from acoustic soloist to fronting a nationally touring Metallica tribute.

I come from a musical family - my father is also a pro musician. The biggest thing I've learned as a teacher of guitar, bass and voice is teaching the instrument has only made me a bigger student. The learning process never ends and that is one of the great things about music.

No matter where you are with the instrument - a beginner picking it up for the first time, or a seasoned pro of 10 years that just needs help "putting it together," I believe I can help you to get wherever you want to go.

Regarding availability - make sure to inquire if you don't see a time open that suits you - I am flexible. I perform 4-6 times a week and teach full time. Flex lessons tend to work very well.

Barbara D.

Twinsburg, OH

About Barbara

Learning to play a musical instrument is a skill that has been proven to improve brain activity. It is one of the only activities to engage both sides of the brain. Students who learn a musical instrument show improvement in their ability to pay attention and understand what is being taught in their academic classes. Most students retain this advantage even if they do not continue to play into adulthood.

Music is fun! It also can express your feelings in ways words cannot. I don't just teach you how to play your instrument, I will teach you to have a love for your music, and from that,
you will find that it is a lot of fun! After all, you do "play" your instrument!

In addition to the violin, viola and theory lessons described below, I am also available to coach ensembles. Any combination of string instruments you are working with, I will work with your group to improve your cohesiveness and your musical style.

My son has been taking lessons for several years with Barb. His skills and technique improved dramatically when he began and have continue to improve over the years. He received the "most improved" award in orchestra after his first year of lessons. He performs challenging music well at annual recitals and in Akron Youth Philharmonic with Barb's guidance. Barb is encouraging during lessons, yet always points out specific things that need attention for the next week. I highly recommend her.

I took lessons with Anthony for more than a year as a complete beginner. His teaching style was responsive to my level of experience (zero at the time), and area(s) of interest. I thoroughly enjoyed taking lessons and would highly recommend him as a teacher. He helped to expand my creativity and boldness. I even started transposing music that I had heard so that they can be used in lessons. We started getting into music theory - which was so much fun because he made it very accessible. He is an amazing drummer, good-natured, and very knowledgeable & passionate about percussion.

I began playing drums at age 32. My wife found Anthony by calling local music stores and he came highly recommended. I was a little taken back that I was getting lessons from a 18 year old kid, but wow, he did not disappoint. I took lessons for 4 years with him before he moved to New York, and when he moved back, I began back with him. He also began teaching my then 7 year old son. We both loved working with him. He took the time to make sure you understood what he was teaching and went above the protocol of professionalism. I highly recommend him to anyone that wants the detailed fundamentals of drumming, and the caring nature of your well being in percussion. I give him 10 stars...5 from me and 5 from my son Kyle! Rock on!

I first started taking lessons when I was 13. Anthony was my first and only legitimate teacher (I later tried another and was disappointed). He teaches every student at their own pace and based on how much effort they choose to put into learning their instrument. During times when I was getting lazy he even sat me down and spent part of the lesson just motivating me to get more out of lessons by investing more time practicing; I'll never forget it. Anthony truly taught me everything I knew.

Fast forward: I now drum for the electronic rock/EDM band Day Method which has been scouted by the manager for Guns and Roses, the tour manager for U2, and the manager for Trans Siberian Orchestra. I have performed for tens of thousands of people over the last 10 years, played well over 100 concerts, and am moving to LA in a few months to pursue a record deal. The take away? Whatever your dreams or aspirations, they aren't out of reach and Anthony can give you the tools you need to get you there...Keep rocking!
