About Ryan
I have been playing the piano for 7 years, but have been involved in the musical institution for much longer than that. I am currently pursuing my bachelors in classical piano performance from California State University of Dominguez Hills, with not much longer to go. I have also been shaping minds young and old in piano technique and music theory for the last three years. And, I believe I am an ideal teacher for anyone just starting out, to those who are trying to continue from where they left off.

*** Lesson Details ***
My first and foremost goal is to inspire a student to want to learn and thrive in their instrument. If I can do this, my job along with theirs, becomes that much easier. I try and do this by heavily incorporating the music that they identify the most with, while strengthening their technique with a classical foundati
on. And, introduce a well rounded set of incentives for each of their accomplishments.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide sheet music and books, I expect the student to provide the instrument they would like to take lessons on.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Contemporary, Popular Song

About Chris
Hi there! My name is Chris and I've been playing music my entire life and I believe that with the right attitude and environment anyone can achieve musical greatness!

I was born into a musical family and have studied classical piano since I was 4 years old! I am very well versed in music theory and proper technique, with an emphasis on avoiding player's injuries, as well as a great knowledge of classical Pieces for any skill level.

Alas!

As a young teenager I grew rebellious and learned how to play the electric guitar and have since sought teachers outside my family to learn modern styles and 5 other instruments!! I have also worked toward a music degree and have made music the center of my life.

Classical music is not everyone's passion but a good practice routine, attitude and environment is always a good thing to ha
ve as these things are important regardless of your favorite music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are held with a fun and relaxed attitude. Learning music should always be enjoyable and a good attitude and love for music is cultured and encouraged.

Lessons are structured just like a practice session should be. We will begin with a warm-up exercise designed to acquaint you with the proper technique to meet your personal musical goals. the next activities are highly personalized, but is usually something like reading music or a music theory game. These activities are things that are good for you but may not be your favorite part of learning music. They will, however, go a long way toward your better understanding of how your favorite music is structured.

Examples could be learning about 12 bar blues, common strum patterns (for guitar), scales, sight-reading, or music analysis.

We will spend the rest of class learning and practicing an activity of your choice. This is usually a song but can be anything you wish to improve upon. this is usually a long-term goal of yours. *I've always wanted to learn......*

By structuring our lessons the same as how you will practice, and by keeping good notes, it will be easy for you to take on practice at home and achieve all of your musical goals!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have their own guitar/piano/keyboard etc. Guitar/violin students should also have a music stand and tuner to keep at home. I will bring picks, spare tuner, music, and handouts.

*** Specialties ***
I primarily specialize in classical piano in styles such as Muzio Clementi and Frederic Chopin. I also play Bach and various Spanish classical guitar pieces. I have also extensively studied electric guitar in Blues such ZZ Top, Metal such as Metallica, and rock such as Led Zeppelin. I have also studied Irish and Celtic folk music for instruments such as Mandolin and Violin.

About Steve
Learning to play music should be fun. Learning to play the songs you like and listen to everyday is a good first step in that direction.

As early as I can remember our house was filled with music. My parents had records of the popular music of the time as well as movie soundtrack albums. At eight years old I got my first trumpet and joined the school band. Soon I was taking private lessons. We also had a piano in the house and I often found myself sitting and trying out chords and melodies to fit the songs I would hear. At sixteen I got my first guitar, along with a songbook that promised I could play “hundreds of songs with just three magic chords”.

Moving west I studied music at West Los Angeles College and played trumpet in the school’s concert band. A group of us formed a jazz quintet and started playing gigs in and aroun
d LA. We then expanded the scope of the band by adding a second sax and more exotic percussion as well as incorporating elements of reggae and rock into our original music. This helped us land jobs at clubs like the Troubadour and larger venues like the Shrine Exhibition Hall. We played together professionally for five years.

After at stint at the Dick Grove School of Music I joined an eight piece cover band playing popular dance music. We toured Western Canada for six months, riding in a converted city bus and taking turns driving a large panel truck with our equipment. When I returned I met a talented female singer who also played flute. We formed a pop/rock quintet and played professionally in the LA area for several years.

I’ve continued to take lessons along the way and have taught trumpet, piano and guitar to both young people and adults. I believe my rich musical journey and my experiences both teaching and performing can help you to achieve your musical goals!

*** Lesson Details ***
Listening to music is fun. Playing music is fun. Learning to play a musical instrument should be just as much fun. The first step toward a solid musical education is to find out what type of music the student likes and what particular musician or artist he or she enjoys. From there we can choose material that the student will have fun performing as they learn.

Each session will involve a brief review of previous material covered and a preview of ideas to work on going forward. In between, the student and I will play together and discuss how best we can each improve, and have a little fun along the way!!

I will work with a variety of methods and concepts customized to fit each student. My experience has shown me that no two students are alike, but every student will enjoy playing more, and more often, if they like the study material.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have my own instruments but would expect the student to have their own instrument for lessons and practice.

*** Specialties ***
Pop, rock, reggae, R&B, blues.

About Jeff
I started playing guitar in 1977 I played my first professional gig in 1986. I studied the GIT guitar method as taught by the musicians institute in Hollywood California.
Since 1990 I have taught literally thousands of students. I have taught for some major music store chains, as well as in my own studio. I play and teach all styles from simple acoustic songs and strumming all the way up to extremely complicated rip roaring leads.
From blues to rock, country,metal. You name it I can teach and play it.
I have had extensive professional experience in the music industry, and I have played in front of thousands of people in all types of venues.
No matter what your goal I can help you achieve it.
Learning guitar takes patience, and you need to go slow. You can not go on to the next step, next note, next lick, until you have really learne
d the previous one. This is most peoples biggest mistake.

I taught Daniel at the Art Institute and I have to say he is one of the most thoughtful and engaging students I've had in my classes. His dedication to tutoring greatly benefited the audio department as a whole and elevated the work of the entire student body. I knew when my students would go see Daniel for tutoring because they would come back to class with a better understanding of the subject matter and bring interesting new ideas to the class discussions. Highly recommended!!

I love to work with all ages. Like many artist, I started off shy to sing and share my music but the more I practiced and performed, the more comfortable I became! I want to build that same confidence in my students. As a teacher, I am a vendor for Julian Charter Schools and have enjoyed helping a variety of talented singers and have Co-written piano songs with students. I have also helped in developing my students own original songs, finding their own creativity and personal growth in music while learning to read and play other music as well.

ROXANNE IS THE BEST!
You can always tell how much she loves the piano while she plays it. What I love about Roxanne is that she brings you out of your comfort zone. It can be a little intimidating learning something new, especially for younger ones, but Roxanne really gives them the confidence they need to just do it! Plus, she’s lots of fun which makes learning something new easier and enjoyable.

Roxanne is an excellent music teacher, and plays from the heart. It is the love for what she does, that sets her apart from other teachers. Most music instructors are following a commercially driven style, that breeds regiment over fun. However, if playing music has the natural fun taken out of it, then the music produced by the student becomes a carbon copy, losing originality. These types of teachers are showing you how to imitate other artists, Roxanne shows you how to be an artist worthy of imitation.
