About Justin

Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and t

Lisa
Justin is an excellent teacher!! He is a master guitarist, always punctual, very courteous and gives 100% to my lesson. I am learning classical guitar and jazz guitar with him and I am delighted with the progress I've made in just a few months. I am playing beautiful songs and before his lessons I could not play any classical guitar songs at all. Justin tailors the lessons to help me learn the songs I am excited about learning to play. I most highly recommend him as a teacher for any style guitar. Amazingly he also teaches ukulele and mandolin too! He has a degree from Cal Poly in music and guitar and has over 20 years teaching experience. If you really want to learn how to play guitar easily and quickly, take lessons with him!

Hello, my name's Olivia! I'm excited to work with flutists of all levels to achieve their goals, find their voices, and have fun with music. Lessons with me are always individually tailored to each student's needs and objectives, combined with enough structure to excel in their studies.

Our lessons will include detailed help with: breathing, sound quality, note reading, music theory, ear training, improvisation, practice routines, that most elusive "musicality", and more! We'll use a variety of exercises, etudes, and duets to build a solid foundation and help you become the best musician you can be.

As a classical musician, I've been playing for 17 years, studying both American and French styles of orchestral woodwind performance, but I originally got my start playing hymns in church. As a professional freelancer in Milwaukee, WI, I regularly play commercial pop, rock, Americana, jazz, and showtunes both for local productions and on the road.

I graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood (originally called GIT), a renowned music school especially for the guitar. I have had taken guitar lessons and also taught students of different ages for nearly 5 years before I attended MI.

I received an honors degree of Guitar Performance and Audio Engineering and have been on the Dean's List every quarter.

I will combine my teaching experience and what I have learned and summarized from my learning, in order to give you comprehensive, in-depth, straightforward, and easily applicable lessons from beginner to advanced.

When I was teaching back then, I sometimes focused on one thing at a time and didn't realized how important to combine all things together it is until I went to MI. I will cover all the following sections throughout my lessons, so that you will become more of a musician, instead of a, for lack of a better word, guitarist:

Technique
Music Theory
Performance
Improvisation

Patrick F.
I've taken guitar lessons from a few teachers and Dan is the best fit I've ever had. He is very patient and does a fantastic job of tailoring lessons to individual needs. He clearly loves to play music and is very thoughtful about how he shares this knowledge in his lessons. He never fails to encourage me as a guitar player and reinforces a 'can do' attitude. His positive and calm demeanor also make for a fantastic instructor. Thank you, Dan.

"Angela helped me to expand my range, and also taught me "how to breathe," which helped me get the support I needed to make clear sounding notes. I sang alto in chorus for years and she taught me how to successfully hit high notes and have them sound good too. She also worked with me at the tail-end of High School, when my anxiety ran rampant. But somehow she managed to make me a more confident singer and person overall. Thank you Angela! :)"

3 Tips for Voice Projection

No mic? No problem! Sing loud and proud with these voice projection tips from Broken Arrow, OK voice teacher Adia P...   Growing up on the stages of community theater, I probably heard "Project your voice!" more than "Curtain!" or "Break a Leg!"  It's a little intimidating at first, but between nonstop practices and a healthy fear that all my hard work would be wasted if no one could hear my lines, I was projecting like a pro in no time. It may sound complicated, but projecting your …
