About Paul
You might not always notice it, but music is all around—from the stereo in your car to the music piped in at department stores. And you also may not be aware that music has a wide array of impacts on your health: Studies show that music has a strong effect on your mood levels and emotions, and also on how you think and your general intelligence. The music you listen to can have a profound effect on your test scores and your ability to quickly process information. And if you’ve ever played an instrument, studies show that you’re already ahead of the curve. Playing an instrument is a great way to test out your creative thinking and push your brain to process information in a new way. Whether you’re listening or playing, a little music can go a long way. I am here to help you realize not only your playing potential, but guide you into not ju
st becoming a guitar player, piano player, but a musician. I am able to teach Piano, Guitar, Music recording from software/hardware to MIDI, including Sonar, Reason, and related software.

I have studied music at California State University San Bernardino, where I minored in music and learned the immense possibilities of the music field. Music is part of my everyday life, and its an honor to know I can play music but also create it. My goal is to show you as the student how to realize that dream.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very friendly, fun and patient instructor. I believe that when you take any type of music lesson, it should be to have fun. With fun, passion, and dedication, sky is the limit. The curriculum I like to use are the most simplified forms to teach an instrument. It's about playing smarter, not harder. I do offer recording sessions to my students to track their progress, and give you a copy to keep as memorabilia.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Bergman Upright Piano. Fender Acoustic/ Gibson Electric. Marshall Amps. Digital and analog Recording Station.

*** Specialties ***
I have basic knowledge of classical works, but my emphasis is in modern rock/ Alternative. I like teaching the songs you like to hear from The Beatles to Green Day! I love all music genres and if I have not heard of the song you want to play I will learn it so that I can teach you!

Our lessons will be both encouraging and productive, but most importantly, will foster a love and understanding of music. Curriculum is individualized based on the student’s musical interests. Students will learn songs they love to play while also developing proper technique and important musical skills like sight-reading, a solid understanding of rhythm, music theory, and ear training. We will work together to help you achieve your goals and gain a well-rounded music education, regardless of age or musical background.

About Summer
I believe that the most important aspect of teaching music is creating a positive and individualized learning environment while simultaneously teaching the necessary technique and knowledge to play your instrument both successfully and confidently.
 
Above all, our lessons will focus on reaching your musical potential. Curriculum for our lessons will draw from variety of methods and aspects of music education. These include music theory, ear training, sight-reading, body mapping, technique, improvisation skills, arranging, and composition. I place a great emphasis on learning repertoire from a variety of genres of music.
 
Students will have the opportunity to share what they learn at spring and winter recitals and to participate in group lessons on a regular basis.



I have 9 years of experience teaching piano, guitar, music th
eory, and ear training to students of all ages, levels, and musical backgrounds, including students with special needs. 
 
I am currently completing my Masters degree at University of California, Irvine. Prior to my graduate studies, I was based in New York City, where I ran a private music studio, performed throughout the city with my jazz quintet, and worked as an accompanist and musical director. I graduated with honors from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA with degrees in Performance and Audio Engineering.



Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about lessons or scheduling!

Summer is fantastic. We first had her as an in-home instructor in Manhattan, and now that she has moved to California, we have her online. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about music, has introduced the kids to different genres, music theory and online music practice apps to keep them engaged and learning. She gives them homework "listening assignments" to help develop their ear for music. The kids have grown so much in their love of music and their ability to sight-read, play and understand music theory.

Summer is the best! She has taught my children throughout their middle childhood into their teens and during this time has introduced them to many different genres of music, which they have particularly enjoyed. In that way, she has not only taught them to play the piano excellently but has instilled in them an appreciation for music. In addition to being super-nice, patient, open-minded and very well organized, she challenges her students ceaselessly and pushes them to reach their potential. She employs a variety of different teaching methods and adjusts her style to the learner in front of her. My children related to her extremely well and they loved her.
Highly recommend

Summer is one of the best piano teachers I ever had. She makes learning piano really fun and is extremely patient with her students. It was sometimes a challenge taking lessons on a consistent basis due to my work schedule but we always managed to get around it somehow. I really enjoyed my lessons and feel that they have helped improve my skills tremendously. Thanks Summer!!

About Patrick
I have been teaching group and private lessons for about 30 years now. I've been a contract teacher for The City Of Chino Hills for about 10 years, and have taught for the cities of Chino, Diamond Bar and Walnut as well.

I started my teaching business, LearnGuitare around 2006 and teach group and private lessons at its studio in Chino, CA.

I have performed since the late 70s in many bands and have met an played with a lot of good musicians. In the 80s, we were part of the scene that rocked the Sunset Strip and all over Southern California. Today, I perform with my wife in our Pat Benatar tribute band, HeartBreaker which was founded in 1999. We have performed many concerts since then, and have performed in front of thousands! We have performed in Japan for our naval troops, Canada, Arizona, Las Vegas as well as many California Casin
os, Concerts In The Park and other venues.

LearnGuitare is my passion and I look forward to working you and to help you reach your musical goals!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a fun teacher! I've been teaching guitar to all ages for over 30 years...group as well as private.

While I make the lessons fun, I also make them very informative. I am serious and passionate about teaching and I make sure that my students walk away from each lesson saying, "Wow, that was a cool lesson!"

Here is a description of the basic beginning courses I offer:

GUITAR FOR YOUNG BEGINNERS (Ages 5-8)
This course is designed to introduce younger students to the basics of guitar playing by incorporating an extensive repertoire of well-known children’s songs carefully graded into an easy-to-follow format that provides the right start to music education. Students will be introduced to playing both single note melodies and simplified chords, incorporating quarter, half and whole notes along with their equivalent rests. Students will be taught to read music and will be introduced to many basic musical terms. The material is presented with colorful illustrations throughout to stimulate and maintain young students’ interest.

BEGINNING GUITAR FOR KIDS, TEENS & ADULTS (Ages 9-adult)
Students will enjoy an easy to follow format that provides a solid music education while teaching students to play single note melodies. This course is for anyone “just learning how to play” acoustic and/or electric guitar. Lessons include tuning, first position melody playing and chords, rhythms through eighth notes, solos, ensembles, strumming and picking.

BEGINNING ROCK & BLUES GUITAR FOR TEENS & ADULTS Ages 12+
Students will enjoy a fun, easy to follow introduction to playing Rock & Blues guitar. This class covers essential basics based on rock, metal and blues styles including the 12 bar blues progression, basic rhythm patterns through eighth notes including the shuffle feel, open position chords, power chords, power chord extensions, rock & blues comping, minor and major pentatonic and blues scales, improvisation and song structure.

Unlike other beginning guitar courses that teach students to play songs like 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,' 'Jingle Bells' and 'This Old Man,' students are introduced to jamming on simple rhythm and lead patterns featuring cool riffs and licks that sound like BOSTON, METALLICA, GUNS N’ ROSES, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, NIRVANA and TRADITIONAL & MODERN BLUES.

For students with more playing experience, we can design a lessons program to fit your needs to get you to the next level of musicianship.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Amps for bass and guitar, audio for teaching, guitars and bass guitars, teaching tools, music stands, cords, metronome, lounge for parents to sit during the lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I teach many genres of music to students of all levels. Young beginners from the age of 5, children, teens and adults (it’s NEVER too late to start). I work with many styles from the most basic folk to the heaviest of metal and just about all in between. Fingerstyle, Travis Picking, Classical, Early Rock n Roll, Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country are just some of the styles I work with.

Theory and reading standard notation is very important for any beginning student to learn, especially children. As students progress in their playing ability, I add music based on their interests as well. I am a music teacher first and a guitar teacher second. I don’t just teach students how to play their favorite songs either, I teach the hows and the whys while we use the student’s favorite songs as a template.

In addition to that, when a student is ready, I also introduce how to improvise in each of the genres so that the student can create their own melodies and really make music.

I also welcome students that have a little or more experience as well. Perhaps you know a few chords and can play pretty well at the moment, but maybe you have “hit the ceiling”. I can help you reach the next level of musicianship.

About Omar G.

I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

About Omar
Knowing that you are looking for a instructor to teach you music puts a smile on my face. You see, music has been a part of my life since the age of 3. Some of my first memories are of me accompanying my father at home with his rehearsals or just singing together to have fun as a family. I believe music is a gift that unites people together bringing out our deepest emotions that words cannot express. At the age of 5 I received an organ and from that point on I embarked on a long life journey to indulge and learn more about music. In elementary, junior high and high school I was involved in any subject dealing with music. I joined school choirs, orchestras, bands, marching bands, jazz bands, musicals you name it. While enjoying all school music activities I was selected to join in honor county and state orchestras and choirs. In junior h
igh and high school I was selected to play for the Junior Pacific Symphony Orchestra, received scholarships to music summer camps, and was selected musician of the year. In college my quest continued with the Orange Coast College Orchestra, Praise Symphony Orchestra, Vanguard University Orchestra as well as guitar ensembles and college choir groups. I've also taken private lessons from Dr. Art David (Julliard graduate) in stand up bass as well as David Black (Pacific Symphony Orchestra) and classical guitar with Richard Glenn and David Murray. I've been teaching now for 15 years in guitar, classical guitar, bass guitar, stand up bass, cello, piano and voice ranging from 5 yr old to 65 yr old. My styles of music range from classical, jazz, rock, blues and contemporary. At this point I'm enjoying playing and singing in my church choir and worship team as well as teaching my two kids the joys of music. I hope you truly enjoy the joy of learning music whether it be through me or another teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I require all students to set time aside to practice. For without it, it is only wasting your time, your money and my time. I don't expect a total dedication to it but I do want to see some effort put into it. A little practice can go a long way and the more you do it, the faster you will progress and the more you will enjoy it. We will first start off with what you want out of music and the level you are at and go from there. Student can bring their own music either thru tabs, music sheet or just by ear but one thing I do expect is a student to learn how to read music notation. We will go thru the regular warm up exercises, material practiced during the week and any new music for the following week. Correct techniques in how to hold your instrument or voice procedures will be addressed. Music theory will also be part of the lesson as well as ear training. At the end of either 3 to 6 months you will have learned the basics of music and will be playing songs for you or someone else to enjoy. I will make it a total relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere but some dedication has to put on the students' part.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated music room, guitar both classical and electric, piano, cello, upright bass and electric bass guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own instrument. I can also provide music stand, small amplifier if needed and music material for the first few lesson until student provides for him/her self. Student must have own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
My way of teaching would have to be that they must learn how to read music while learning how to play an instrument.

I'll teach you to play the music you want to play while learning the skills to be a great guitarist.

About Becky
I believe that if you want something, you have to go for it. I encourage my students to pursue their passions with music and reach as far as they dare imagine. I act as a resource and a guide, helping my students to find their way to their music goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
I give my students a laid back, fun-loving atmosphere that offers as many challenges as they are up to. Students will dive into their favorite types of music, learning techniques pulled from their favorite songs. We will laugh together, work through frustration together, and make wonderful music together. I offer my students the opportunity to push themselves toward their passions and give them the tools to succeed.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a room set up in my home with music stands and seating.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide all workshee
ts, practice material, and sheet music. I can also provide a practice guitar for beginner students, but expect students to buy or rent a guitar of their own before too many lessons pass once they have confirmed their interest in the subject.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in kids and young adults, but am happy to welcome students of all ages! When working with songwriting students, or students who wish to sing along with their guitar, I am happy to include basic vocal work into our lessons.

Each lesson is designed on the level of the student's ability from beginner to advanced. Rock, R&B, funk, jazz, blues, POP and country music. I like to use song learning as a vehicle to sharpen your skills. Learning skills through songs is more fun for beginners. More advanced students will work on everything from theory, reading, harmony; and how you can use scales and arpeggios in a number of ways over several different styles of music.

About Stephen
~ Customized Lesson Plan for You. ~

Learning the guitar is a fun, yet, challenging experience. Having an instructor guide you through the process makes learning easier and more efficient. The internet provides a wealth of information but can not interact with you and help your specific needs. Many guitar players get frustrated and give up. Getting the encouragement and expertise of an instructor who has been there before greatly enhances chances of success.

My style of teaching is founded on fun with the instrument and guiding students to real music situations. Many students come to me with an incomplete set of skills. These (self taught) players have several basic fundamental holes in their playing.

It is also important to me that students have a basic knowledge of music theory. This way, they can enjoy the guitar for th
e rest of their life. If you just learn to put your hands in a certain place to play a certain song, you are missing out. If you learn what it is your actually doing, you can apply it. This may be the most important benefit of a private instructor.

What You Will Learn:

​Beginning Students:
In my experience, over several years, I find most beginners are surprised the guitar is so hard to play. Having an instructor to help you past that frustration will lead to a lifelong enjoyment of your guitar in the songs you love.
- Learning the basic chords.
- How to move from chord to chord smoothly.
- Using these chords to play your favorite songs.
- Understanding guitar notation (tabs, chord grids, song books, standard notation).
This way, the skills you learn will last a life time!

Intermediate/ Advanced Students:
This is for the hungry players. You will be given the direction to achieve a high level of musicianship. You will be challenged to reach your full potential.
- Technique drills
- Scale knowledge
- Advanced chords
- Improvisation tips
- Chop Building
- Theory
- Reading
- Composition

Experience & Background:

I've teaching and performing professionally for 23 years.
- One year OCHSA jazz combo.
- 15 years performing music clubs, casuals as a solo performer and in a jazz trio.
- 23 years teaching individuals and groups.
- 11 years as Irvine and Laguna YAMAHA Music school instructor.

I've studied with some of the top teachers in California:
- Jim Fagen (classical guitar)
- Erik Halbig (rock, jazz & country)
- Jim Witzel (head of jazz guitar at CSUSF)
- Ron Eshcete (jazz guitar)
- Carl Verheyen (everything).

Stephen is a brilliant and experienced guitar instructor. My wife signed me up the electric guitar lesson with Stephen after my retirement about a year ago. I told him that I had no music background and just wanted to be able to play the 70’s songs I like. The lesson plan is based on my level and my goal. I started the fundamentals and now I can play most my favorite 70’s songs. I enjoy every lesson with him. What I learn in one hour class can fill out the rest of the week. Thank you for making my retired life so meaningful. “It’s never too old to play guitar! “ I would highly recommend Stephen to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar!

Are you interested in learning to play the guitar? I have been playing the guitar for 15 years and I am currently studying music education in order to obtain my teaching credential. In our lessons together, we will cover the basics of guitar playing from scale and chord shapes to melodic lines and improvisation. I am currently accepting guitar students at both the beginner and intermediate level. Each of my students receives their own custom lesson plan that aligns with their interests and personal goals. Thanks so much for checking out my profile and I look forward to working with you!

Music is my greatest passion in life and I am so grateful to be able to get up every day and enjoy what I do. To instill that passion in others is what I hope to achieve during my lessons.
