Acoustic Guitar

About Ray
Hello!

My name is Ray, I'm 30 years old, and was born in Queens, NY. I studied classical music for many years as a youngster at the Aaron Copeland School of Music college preparatory program. During this program I was introduced to Jazz, and around the same time began experimenting with synthesizers. I went on to study Electronic Production & Design at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and quickly became a very sought after studio musician and performer.

I've been successfully teaching many instruments and proficiency levels for 16+ years now, and can say with pride that teaching is my passion, and I anticipate it being a very important part of the rest of my life.

I enjoy reading nonfiction books on science, math, and philosophy, and am building a career as a pop music producer.

*** Lesson Details ***
My music lessons
are unique for three main reasons:

1. I have a very deep understanding of music, sound, and theory, and feel music to be one of my native languages.

2. I have devoted considerable amounts of time and energy studying neuroscience, which has greatly improved my understanding of the learning process.

3. I have been blessed with the tremendous amount of patience necessary to guide a student through the necessary steps it takes to learn at whatever pace is optimal, in order to maximize the efficiency of the learning process for each individual.

*** Equipment ***
Students must have their own instrument, and purchase their own materials (books, etc). From time to time I make my way to a local music shop, and am happy to purchase materials for reimbursement.

*** Specialties ***
Classical music is my background, and what I believe to be the most cognitively and emotionally fulfilling style of music to study and play. That said, I'm also a big fan of pop music (as well as other genres), and encourage students to enjoy learning their favorite songs from the radio.

My understanding of music theory is extremely thorough, and I'm happy to incorporate as much or as little of it as the student's interest dictates, nevertheless maintaining the minimal amount of theory necessary to get the most out of learning music and the instrument.

Thanks for checking out my profile! Please contact me with any additional questions you may have, as well as to inquire about day/time availability. I'll do my best to get back to you right away (usually within a few hours).

My son and daughter both take from Ray and they love him!!! My daughter started with him after she had had 2 other teachers and she improved immediately. She loves going to Ray because he teaches her to play the songs that she likes. Now she plays so many songs for memory!! My son loves going to piano and is always excited to see Ray.

My approach to guitar is all about getting students playing songs they enjoy right away. You or your loved one will learn fundamentals through making music! We will include music reading if the student has an interest in that aspect of music-making capabilities. I believe the most important thing for a beginner is to get HOOKED on the enjoyment of playing the guitar.

About Teresa
A musician since age 4, Teresa's dad took her early passion for music seriously. So she respects the power that parents have to foster their children's musical lives! She notes the many stories she has heard over the years: "If someone had just supported my interest"... "If my teacher had listened to what I wanted to learn."

These stories and her own passion for music-making inform her approach. A degreed music educator and multi-instrumentalist, she celebrates and uses the musical interests of her students to move them forward. She has three grown sons, including two touring musicians. Their musical lives also influence her work with children, young people, and adults. The point is to celebrate and develop each student's unique, interest-based musical self-expression.

In her home teaching studio in Sherwood Forest, CA, 30 minutes
is the perfect lesson time for most purposes. Options include piano, voice, ukulele, beginning guitar, music reading/theory, and preparation for auditions. Teresa also conducts early childhood music sessions for 3 to 5 year-olds and is available to do group sessions.

45-minute and 60-minute sessions are also available as needed. Teresa recommends 45 minutes to an hour for audition preparation.

Teresa is an awesome teacher! She's a beauty inside and out. Aside from the fact about my son being musically inclined, she goes by the interests of my son or her students and still able to cover the important lessons he/they need to learn. She's got great rapport and very encouraging! I loved the way she said that this journey of my his is not about perfection but rather expression. I believe in her teaching strategies because my son learned so quickly and he was not pushed to learn rather inspired to learn more.

She also holds annual recitals which we got to experience during my son's early learning days with her and I'm proud of how he performed that brought tears of joy! Who does that? Loved everything about that recital and all of Teresa's efforts and service in teaching. I knew we were in the right place and found the best teacher!

Teresa is a gifted and versatile teacher. She connected with my daughter immediately, inspired her love of singing and playing the ukelele. She was ecstatic after her first lesson and has been practicing at home daily. She can't wait for the next lesson! Thank you, Teresa for inspiring my daughter's love of all things singing!

My child is starting her 3rd year with Teresa and Teresa is an amazing teacher. Just to watch the way that she connects to my child is the reason that we continue with Teresa. She is a true professional. I have older children that have taken piano lessons elsewhere and there is something quite special about Teresa, her teaching style, her studio, and her big heart. Im sure we will be with Teresa for years to come!

I want to have you walking out of the lesson happy, and excited to go home and practice some new material. With me you'll learn about guitar, but you'll also learn about music and how playing can help you in life (perseverance, basic math foundations, etc.)

About Chris
I am a jazz guitarist based out of beautiful Los Angeles, California. I received and Associate of Arts degree in Music in 2015, and have been pursuing a bachelors in Jazz Studies since then.

While in community college I really grew into my own as a musician and discovered that I love jazz. Not only the music, but the history of how it formed as well as the differences from classical music. When at school I stood out from the other guitarists because I was hungry to learn and that attitude will hopefully follow me for the rest of my life.

Thats what I'd hope to pass on the students; that knowledge, be it music, english, math, physiology, etc. is the key to everything. And that it doesn't have to be all stuffy and boring! I tailor my lessons to the student whether its guitar, piano, ukulele, etc. and my main objective is to learn and
have fun, so the learning is reinforced with good natured thoughts. This will set up the student to actually want to practice!

As a musician I've been in a couple of groups, and starting to get a jazz group together recently. I also try to utilize the computer to produce when possible so I can learn about that aspect of music. My passion is improvisation/composition, because I hope to one day leave songs behind that people can play forever and be influenced by them like so many have influenced me.

Mr. Chris is really pleasant and fun teacher. He was on time and made his first lesson very interesting. He reviewed my son patiently for whatever he has learned before and then introduced him to some new notes. He didn’t rush with the time and made sure my son is comfortable with him.
Looking forward to the next class with him.👍🏻

Do you want to learn to play your favorite song? Work on rhythm technique? or gain a better understanding for music or composition? I have 15 years experience playing Acoustic Guitar and would love to share some of my knowledge with you!

About Kat
Playing Music brings me such joy! I want you share that Joy with you by bringing that to our classes and helping you grow in a fun and encouraging way!

I'm a singer songwriter and have worked as a full time musician for the last 13 years. I graduated from Auckland University with Bachelor's of Performing Arts Majoring in jazz vocals, and am currently teaching at Musicians Institute in Hollywood.

Currently I still primarily work as a full time musician so I will only be teaching part time. I release original music, tour and play shows regularly both in and out of town. I was signed to Sony and Avex in Japan from 2007-2010 and still tour Japan once a year and spend much of my time in the studio writing songs for commercials and other artists.

I usually teach my clients at their home or online through skype but depending on the tim
e can also make the home studio available. I work with singers, guitarists, and songwriters in a wide age range, assorted skill levels with a variety of musical goals.

I can teach you how to sing with better technique, how to play acoustic guitar and the Ukulele and how to write songs and performance technique in the studio and on stage as a vocalist. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

Every musical success begins with a small note - HR

I have created my own program to teach students from beginner to Advanced levels, I wrote it myself. I wish I would've had a program like that when I began my musical journey with the guitar, I have arranged the subjects in a special order that makes easy the learning process for my students. I like to demystify all theoretical and practical concepts applied to the guitar so the student can easily understand chords, scales, techniques, harmony, improvisation and other subjects that usually take years to master. My goal is to translate all this knowledge at the student's own pace, yielding quick results in 3-6 months.

About Hedras
Hello,
I can teach you Electric and Acoustic Guitar, Music Theory and Pro Tools Software.

I had over 200 students in my own academy Guitar Institute of Guatemala and lots of Private and Skype Students.
You can expect fun lessons but full of helpful information that will help you to improve as a player or help you to start learning songs and playing guitar if you are a beginner.

Learning the simple chord progressions and forming melodies along side these rhythms takes times and practice. I will guide you on how to achieve the simple beginners chords that are the hooks to most of the famous songs you know. We will learn 2 songs. One cover song of students choice and learning level and 1 original song that the student and teacher will create.

About Jonathan
Hi! my name is Jonathan, I've been playing guitar and multiple instruments for more than 18 years! Music has been my passion since I was a kid. I grew up in a family of musicians so instruments were always around. As a young player, I started learning traditional folk and bolero/flamenco music form Mexico (Home) I soon developed the skills to take music to the next level so I moved to Italy once finished high school. When I turned 18 I toured for the first time in Europe as a classical guitarist.

Today, I find myself teaching, performing and writing music 24-7 I currently live in the Los Angeles area. you might not know me personally but I'm sure you've seen me on TV if you watch Glee or other TV shows.
