Gregory Valens Luv is a phenomenal vocal coach. He's very detailed in teaching you structure of the body to relax you and open you up for singing. I love his technique. I find myself very relaxed and limber which brings out the best in me. He's very creative and shares various types of vocalizations to help you with every style of music. He's also got a sweet spirit and that makes it very enjoyable to come to class.

About Edwin
Hello! Thank you for your interest in taking guitar/piano/music lessons.

I am a professional teacher/studio musician/performer/producer with over 17 years of private teaching experience and a graduate of the University of Miami Studio Music and Jazz program in 2002 specializing in the guitar.

I am available to teach guitar(acoustic, electric, classical) for all levels, ages, and styles(pop to folk, rock to soul, world to classical) in English, Spanish and Japanese.

Other subjects taught include bass guitar, piano/keyboard, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, harmonium, classical percussion, music theory, composition(all styles from pop to classical), ear training, and studio production/engineering/mixing.

Born in Cali, Colombia on April 1979, I began my musical endeavors studying the piano at the age of 6. Early on I had the opportunit
y to play percussion in the school symphony while at the same time developed an intense interest in the instrument that would become my true love, the guitar.

During 1996-98 I studied jazz guitar at the New World School of the Arts music program under the direction of J.B. Dyas and Dr. Roby George. Upon graduation, I was immediately accepted to the University of Miami jazz guitar program under the direction of Randall Dollahan. It was during this time that I also refined my skills as a classical guitarist and as a composer/arranger. In addition, I began passing my knowledge onto friends and eventually began working as a teacher.

My ability to play almost any genre of music is the fruit of past experience playing with an impressive variety of music groups, including jazz combos, symphony orchestras, Andean world music ensembles, and several rock and pop groups as well. As a studio guitarist I have recorded for various artists including Jaci Velasquez, Carlos Ponce, Alexandre Pires, and Noelia.

*** Lesson Details ***
Now also available to teach online video chat lessons through Skype.

Every one of you is unique and there are many possible paths to reach your goals in music.

With my background and music industry experience, I am able to customize my lessons for you so that you can reach your desired goals. We will take some time to find out where your passion lies in music and I will use my experience and knowledge to create a customized lesson-plan that will allow us to focus on reaching your desired goals and at the same time maintain a well rounded music education.

I find this to be key in making the lessons and your practice sessions very enjoyable, fun and laid back - knowing that everything we practice, play and talk about is in line with your goals as a student.

I will also be playing along with you and demonstrating everything that we're working on - music is meant to be shared and played with others and it is important to have that experience of interaction from early on in your lessons.

So whether it's learning to accompany yourself or others, write songs, read music, understand harmony, solo, or just jam out to your favorite songs, you will be well on your way to reaching your goals within 6 months of my lessons.

Look forward to making music with you!

Edwin is knowledgeable, talented, good-humored, and most important of all: VERY patient. I started with zero knowledge of acoustic guitar and Edwin has steadily built up my confidence and challenged me to grow. He’s always flexible and works with you and your musical tastes to make sure you stay motivated. I’ve been working with him for almost a year now and I can’t recommend him enough!

I've been taking boogie woogie piano lessons with Edwin for a couple of years now. I have little talent but Edwin has always been patient and encouraging. He is an excellent musician and seems to be able to figure out the most obscure sequences from recordings which is important because a lot of this stuff isn't written down. Plus he's willing to take an unconventional approach as normal teaching methods don't seem to work on me. I highly recommend him.

About Joshua
My love of music began early on from the time I was a child. My parents' wide appreciation of different music genres was reflected in all the varied albums which landed on their constantly rotating turntable. It wasn't long before I started taking piano lessons as my first introduction to creating music. By the time I was 15, I realized that I had a greater attraction to the guitar. I then began a journey that has lasted around 26 years to date. Most of my knowledge consists of a combination of self study, college courses and many excellent teachers along the way. I took several courses at San Francisco Community College to become acquainted with music fundamentals, theory and harmony. I was able to study with noted players such as Jim Campilongo (Nora Jones), Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie, Nine Inch Nails), Audley Freed (Black Crowes,
Dixie Chicks), Jorma Kaukonen (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna), Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule, Allman Brothers), Richard Thompson, Martin Simpson, Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm,Phil Lesh), and San Francisco Jazz Guitarist Jeff Massanari. Not long after moving to Nashville, I took an instructor position at The Main Stage, a music and dance school located in Springfield, TN. I taught a wide range of children (ages 5-17) and adults there for several years.
I bring years of experience and study when I meet with students to formulate a specific, tailored program to help them get started playing as quickly as possible. I think it's important to not only learn theory and technique but also to learn the songs that attract one to the instrument in the first place. Additionally, I've learned many different styles of guitar (both acoustic and electric) ranging from rock and metal to country, folk, bluegrass and funk. I can help a student decipher the techniques behind many of the popular riffs and licks that catch their ear.

*** Lesson Details ***
When I meet new students for the first time, I make it a point to ask them about their own musical interests and goals. I like to find out what inspires them to want to play guitar. I combine teaching important fundamentals with their interests (say, learning their favorite song). We set manageable goal posts for each week so a student can witness their progress. From there, we will work towards achieving the next goal until the task is complete and they can see the payoff (and so can their family and friends).
I always use an approach which combines patience and lots of encouragement. Generally speaking, I have a very laid back personality but I am firm about meeting the requirements that are set with each lesson. Daily practice is important if there is going to be progress. Students can expect to be playing some of their favorite songs quickly when they put in the time.
I use method books which differ depending on the age and interests of the student. I combine exercises which acquaint a student with theory and reading along with learning one's favorite songs. After 3 months, a student will be able to know enough open position chords to play many of these songs. After 6 months, a student will be able to grasp basic music fundamentals and attain basic level reading skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room or den/music room w/ guitar, amp, cables, and seating for parents in both locations

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a guitar, amp, music stand and cable though I would strongly recommend to the student they purchase their own for practical purposes.

*** Specialties ***
I teach rock, funk, country and blues electric styles. I also teach fingerpicking and flatpicking acoustic styles.

Re: Recommendation for Josh P.

Dear Music Enthusiasts,

I was initially impressed with Josh P. personality, patience, and kind demeanor when we hired him 8 years ago for guitar lessons for my then 5 year-old. Yes, I said 5. After checking numerous places for a music instructor interested in teaching such a young child (and being told no), we almost gave up our search. We were referred to Josh who sat down with us and told us he would be glad to teach my young child with only a few conditions. He must be able to recognize the alphabet and pay attention for the weekly half-hour lessons. My husband and I can truly say it was one of the best decisions we ever made.

Did my 5 year-old make it to the magical 30 minute mark each week without incident? Probably not. Some weeks' lessons would end at the 25 minute mark with a tired and talkative child. The next week, however, the half hour lesson would mysteriously lengthen into 40 minutes if he saw that he had my son's full attention. In retrospect, the patience he displays for his students, at any level or skill, is remarkable.

Josh is reliable, dedicated, and eternally upbeat. My 5 year old was reading music in two years and tuning his own guitar by ear shortly thereafter. He is now 13 and has been the 1st chair of our statewide jazz guitar honor band several years running. Josh instilled in him the importance of daily practice and I would often hear him gently chiding my son if he thought the time had not been put in that week. Josh's dedication rubs off on his students. His love of music rubs off on his students.

Josh has come to our home the past several years and taught both of our sons guitar lessons. They both play wonderfully, but most importantly, he has taught them to love music.....any type of music. He might have come in one day with a Beatles CD and tell them to download it to their iPod. The next week it might be Jimmy Hendrix. Both my sons love every genre of music and I attribute that solely to Josh. He is an excellent music teacher and has my highest recommendation. I am happy to furnish more details if you would like additional information.

Sincerely,

Cassie Webb

Jeff is a very experienced instructor and can immediately pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses. He chooses songs that suit your ability, but always adds something to each lesson to push you to the next level. I've only had three lessons so far, but I'm surprised at how much I'm already able to play. I had a lot of reservations going in to these lessons because of unsuccessful attempts to learn guitar in the past. All I can say is that I am really glad I chose Jeff for an instructor. He really knows his stuff and will bring out all the potential you have.

As a singer-guitarist for 20 years and a degree in Music Composition, I specialize in taking any song and giving it the perfect acoustic guitar accompaniment, from beginner bare bones accompaniment, to advanced "full band sound" accompaniment involving more complex strumming, picking, fingerpicking, slapping, and percussive styles.

I can also give you ideas for jamming, soloing, and writing songs while showing you music theory, or I can teach you riffs to your favorite songs!

Being a drummer as well I can show you how to play "in the pocket" with rhythmic precision when playing with a band or by yourself.

About Mike
I've studied piano and other instruments for 30 years, have been teaching music for 20, and have been a full time professional musician and music teacher for 11 years.

As a musician who was raised on classical piano but has also spent his life playing in bands, jamming, and composing in several genres, I believe that a well-rounded musical education is not only practical, but that it brings out the most enjoyment in music.

I also believe in teaching students whatever they love whether it's classical, rock, pop, jazz, world music, or a mix of everything! The more they love it, the more they will practice, and in turn the more they will love how they have improved - a circle of awesomeness!

As a professional musician, I play over 130 shows a year throughout North America as lead singer-guitarist for Celtic Rock group The Whiskeydicks, a
s the touring pianist for classical crossover group Vivace, as a solo singer-guitarist-pianist, and as the lead singer-guitarist-pianist-composer for my own symphonic-rock-fusion group, The Living. I've also toured extensively in Europe as keyboardist and backing vocalist for singer-songwriter Melanie Dekker.

My compositions have been performed by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, The Plastic Acid Orchestra, Turning Point Ensemble, Ad Mare Wind Quintet, Vivace, The Living, The Whiskeydicks and cellist-singer-songwriter Cris Derksen.

I have a B.Mus in Piano and Music Composition from The University of British Columbia. I'm an IVA Certified Level I Voice Instructor and have studied Vocals with John Henny, Jeffrey Skouson, Guy Babusek, and Spencer Welch; piano with Terence Dawson, David Vandereyk, and Ross Taggart; composition with Dorothy Chang, Keith Hamel, and Armanini; drums with Jay Deachman and Morgan Childs; bass with David Spidel; and accordion with Jelena Milojevic.

I've just moved to LA from Vancouver where I had about 40 students, so this is the time to sign up as I have room for new students for the first time in years!

Russ is a truly exceptional individual and very knowledgeable in all aspects of music theory, production and the industry. Not only is he an great at what he does, but he can also relate and impart that knowledge onto others - a skill that is surprisingly rare among high-caliber performers. The price per lesson seems higher than average at first glance, but I feel that the speed and amount of knowledge you acquire per dollar is actually lower than that of other instructors. Really.

He is also active in the industry, so the skills he teaches are current.

I take lessons with Russ online through Skype for EDM production in FL Studio. He is always punctual and promptly communicates if anything comes up. His teaching style carefully balances the need to provide guidance, while allowing freedom for individual artistic development. Every week, I start a composition or track analysis project that applies what I've learned in previous lessons, and I will submit it to Russ to discuss things that went well and things to work on in the future. In this way, you are not just being lectured, but you are actually learning to collaborate with an exceptional musician. I've personally experienced how constant application and feedback facilitates rapid learning.

He certainly is a serious musician, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a fun personality. He is engaging and inspirational.

I would, without reservation nor hesitation, highly recommend Russ to anyone who is interested in professional music production.

I really enjoy learning from Russ. He is good at relating things back to a way I can understand and improve. He is so versatile in his music knowledge that I can litterally throw anything his way that I'm curious about and he points me in the right direction. I've taken guitar, bass, vocal, and even production lessons from Russ. By far the most value I have ever got from an instructor. At first I was a little hesitant because of the higher price than others, but when you start noticing that you are learning stuff other teachers had no idea about, it makes sense to pay a little more for the quality you get out of his lessons. Thanks Russ for all the lessons over the last few years! Wouldn't be where I am today without ya!

She’s is highly skilled and highly recommended for any level of player. I say this as a professional musician/ songwriter.

Great lesson. I am a beginner and Jimena was easy going and adapted to my pace. I believe she has talent, experience and knows a lot.
