I've been teaching singing and vocal performance for over four years. I utilize the Kodaly method for vocal performance, starting at the basic level of tonal scales (major, minor, harmonic, melodic, etc.) and Solfege application to serve as a foundational base; rhythm syllables such as "ta" and "doo". Additionally, foundational breath control is applied, as it is very important for the singer to learn how to control their breath and support their sound. From there, repertoire mimicry is applied, or what I call "phrase building," as it is important for any singer to be able to effectively create vocal phrases.

About Milton
Hey there, everyone!

My name is Milton Carl Jackson II and I teach vocal, guitar, piano, and musical theatre lessons in the Inland Empire area.

I help those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young tap into their own soul through music so that they may help others find theirs as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it! As a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a double major in Music History & Ethnomusicology and African-American & African Studies; a former co-host of the popular hip-hop radio show ATF Radio: All Things Fresh on KDVS 90.3 FM; a former Music Director of The Afterglow of UC Davis; and a recent graduate of American University with a Master's of Education in Business Education
, I have come in contact and learned from a vast amount of different musicians and educators. A classically-trained bass-baritone with roots in R&B, Soul, Rock, Pop, and Jazz, I have aspirations to help each and every student realize their full musical potential.

If you're looking for a teacher who will motivate and inspire you not only to learn your instrument of choice, but also how to perform it (whether on the big stage or in your living room for the family) and record it as well, I'm the perfect teacher for you. Learning to sing, play, and act beautifully doesn't have to be difficult -- we'll work on finding your voice or your style, all while having fun along the way!

I teach in-studio, in-home, and online lessons, so we can be flexible with the lesson type and schedule!

This is a perfect chance for you or your child who can't stop singing around the house or has dreams of shredding on the guitar or twinkling on the ivories to learn the fundamentals of music, start something new that keeps them or you focused, and have fun while doing it!

Feel free to contact me at show contact info for any questions and check out my student reviews and qualifications.

I look forward to meeting you and accompanying you or your child on your musical journey!!

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 have had 5 years of training at Empire Performance Studio in Riverside CA. I spent 4 years in concert choir and chamber singers at Cal State San Bernardino.

In our lessons, we will focus on proper vocal technique in any style. You will learn how to properly use your voice to achieve a beautiful tone, to sing on pitch, and to establish good rhythm.

We will also have plenty of performance opportunities, so we will work on stage presence, movement, and microphone technique.

About Katie
I have been teaching young students piano for seven years. I have completed my education for a music education degree, and am the former president of the Cal State Piano Society. I have been playing piano for nineteen years and love every aspect of music. My goal is to pass my passion for music onto my students, and allow them to develop a deep appreciation and understanding for all genres.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a strong believer in making the learning process fun and enjoyable. I want my students to be motivated to learn and practice as much as possible. My teaching style consists of starting with the basics (technique, theory, and reading music) then graduating to style and phrasing. My students will always leave our lessons feeling accomplished and confident. Learning an instrument is hard work, but with enough effort a
nd commitment, anything is possible!

*** How Long of a Lesson? ***
For very young beginners, I recommend 15 minutes. For beginners, I recommend 30 minutes. For intermediate, we can do 30 to 45 to 60 minutes. For advanced, you would benefit from 45 to 60 minutes. If you are beginner and want to have a 45 or 60 minute lesson, each lesson will focus on any of these categories: technique, repertoire, theory, ear training, and listening.

***Cancellation Policy***
Please notify me at least ONE HOUR before the lesson if you need to cancel to avoid charges. I may or may not be able to reschedule, and I will allow up to one month for a makeup lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Baldwin Upright Piano
Various Piano Books
Metronome
Internet access for resources

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect all music students to provide a piano and the required materials (i.e. metronome and specific music books)

Tutoring: Please provide the class work, assignments, and projects for the subjects that need tutoring (if possible).

*** Specialties ***
I believe that technique is very important when it comes to piano. I start with teaching the basic scales, hand positions, and good posture. Then I begin teaching music theory, in which the student learns how to read notes, rhythms, dynamics, etc. Once the student becomes proficient in reading and technique, I give them more difficult pieces in order to work on style, voicing, and phrasing.

Singing is so fun and students love it especially when they see how much they improve with their voice after just having a few lessons. I have been teaching voice for over 8 years and will work with the student to build them a strong, healthy voice technique!

During singing lessons we usually have 5-10 minutes of warming up and singing vocal exercises. We will then work on the student's song choices and cover in depth with training in breathing, range, pitch, stylistic techniques, and presentation.

About Christina
Christina is a multi-talented musician, producer, and singer-songwriter and has been actively involved playing music throughout her life. She has taught private piano and voice lessons since 2008. Christina is passionate and motivated to help her students reach their fullest musical potential. Students can expect professional and quality lessons with Ms. Christina. Her teaching style and method is fun, laid back, and flexible. She also emphasizes students to have a strong foundation of music theory. Christina will determine a personalized lesson plan for each student depending on their skill level and after the first lesson assessment. Her goal is for students to enjoy the learning process and most importantly make the most progress possible.

I am a professional jazz vocalist and have been performing regularly for 8 years. I have 10 years of choral singing experience, both classical and jazz, and have a degree in Human Development. I have three years of private teaching experience and I teach students of all ages and skill levels. I love helping people discover their voice and how they would like to use it.

About Lia
I am a professional jazz vocalist, voice teacher, session singer, and bunny mom. I grew up around music and have loved to sing for as long as I can remember. I believe that exposure to music is the best way to learn how to do it. My parents are both singers so, naturally, we sang together around the house, in the car, etc.

I believe this exposure is what gave me the drive to become the performer and teacher I am today. Hands Down. I started out singing show tunes with my dad and classic rock/rock with my mom. I taught myself how to play guitar in middle school and this is when the solo-performer in me really started to develop. High school gave me choral music and folk/pop and college gave me jazz. Jazz is my main gig. I have been singing jazz music since 2010 and transformed into a full fledged jazzer along the way.

I believe th
at doing what you love to do can transform your whole outlook on life and work. I do what I love and that is all I can ask for.

I'm a female heavy metal singer and took 12 years off to raise a family so I needed help with pitch, power, control, strength, and development with my upper range and Lia delivered. What I was not expecting--and was pleasantly surprised by--was her additional instruction on adding more emotion through specialized breathing techniques and helping me move out of my comfort zone and attempt to tackle much tougher material. For someone so young in years, she is an old soul and has so much amazing experience to teach from. I've also seen her perform live covering extremely difficult songs and was blown away...even brought tears to my boyfriend's eyes when she sang his song request perfectly. I did not know her prior to my lessons. I met her randomly by emailing my local music store and inquired about lessons. She is worth every penny and I highly recommend her.

Soy un bilingüe (Español y Ingles) y paciente instructor de voz que aspira a ayudar personas de cualquier edad para que sean mejor cantantes. Mi misión es para desbloquear la potencial escondido dentro de cada individual

About Alberto
I am a current student at California State University Fullerton studying Vocal Performance. I am Latino American, currently 19 years of age, and I am respectful of people from all backgrounds. I am friendly and great with children as I have four nephews of my own who I frequently babysit.

I started singing around the age of 7 by first listening to my mother sing to me as a child and then singing those tunes to myself later or hearing the radio play every Saturday mornings as the whole family would get ready for the weekend festivities and family gatherings. Singing has been a part of my life that has had inexplicable effects on everything else I do. Although I am still trying to perfect my own instrument, I want to share what I know with the world and with people of any age so that they too can discover the beauty and awe inspiring abi
lities of the human voice and specifically, of their own voice.

**FREE LESSON**
The first lesson I have with a new student is free and within that first lesson my objective is to first get to know the student and then progressively get to know their voice on that first day and in turn that student can see if they enjoy the voice lesson or not.

**Cancellation Requirements**
I expect at least a 72 hour notice in advance when cancelling a voice lesson either by e-mail or phone.

**Age Requirements**
For students ages 17 and below, a parent may choose to stay and observe the lesson, if it is in their best interest.

It may seem like instrumentalists have it much easier when it comes to sight reading music; by simply pressing a key or a string, the notes are immediately available to them without any additional thought, and all that’s left to them is to work out duration, dynamics, and tempo. Singers, on the other hand, don't have an instrument to rely on.
