About Rob
Since age 10, I've passionately followed the journey of playing the drums. With a degree from SFSU, 8 years of intense mentorship, 1000+ gigs, 3 national tours and over 20 records under my belt, I feel an obligation to pass on my knowledge and experience to those who are also excited about learning music.

I tailor my teaching to each students' individual needs by balancing goal oriented musical growth with a fun and encouraging learning environment. I've taught all skills and ages for over a decade, fostering rapid musical progress and building lasting healthy relationships between the student and the drums!

About Joseph
I have been playing music for over 25 years and teaching for nearly 20 years. I have been a successful part of Rock Bands, Jazz Bands, Blues Bands, Marching Bands, etc. So, whatever style of music you are interested in or wanting to learn, I can help!

I am currently a working musician with multiple groups in Southern California as well as a working Studio session musician. This helps bring a lot of up to date and "real life" knowledge and skills to every lesson.

On top of that, I have spent the past 10+ years honing my skills for Training, Coaching, and Developing. So, I can promise two things. You will get results and you will have FUN!

I will design your lessons around you and your goals......not mine!

*** Lesson Details ***
Ultimately, my goal is to make sure you enjoy yourself and want to keep coming back. In t
hat process I will make sure you get results.

I am laid back and very patient. Two qualities I feel are necessary to be successful in this field.

I design my curriculum for each individual. This is because everyone has their own goals, there own level of ability, and their own needs as far as how to get there.

Locations:
1) If you are located in Orange County, all lessons will be at my studio in Santa Ana.

2.) If you are located in the Southbay or West LA, I will come to your house for lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Drumsets, PA system. Amps, Guitars, and Keyboards.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have acoustic guitars, a practice pad, and a djembe. I expect my students to have their own drumsticks and, ideally, their own guitar and practice pad or drumset.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock/contemporary & marching band style percussion/drums. I also specialize in folk style guitar and bass.

About Belinda
*** Lesson Details ***
NOTE: I prefer to teach students ages 11 & up.  I will accommodate younger students, but as vocal development is a direct reflection of physical development (the instrument is the body), we will be unable to delve deeply into technique.  Instead, the curriculum for younger students will include musicianship and piano skills; they will be more of music lessons that incorporate singing rather than "vocal" lessons.  My current studio consists of all sorts of singers including classical, musical theater, R&B, and pop.  In classical voice lessons, we will be learning songs not only in English, but also Italian, German, and French. Classical voice lessons may not be for everyone, however, and we will learn repertoire that suits the interests of each student.

I emphasize a basic knowledge of music theory, because it
's important for a singer to not only know how to sing, but to also understand the music he or she is singing. I will incorporate music theory into the lessons, starting with basics such as learning how to read notes.

I believe in making sure the singer is comfortable and confident.  The environment you will be learning in is open and non-threatening because a singer needs a place to explore his or her voice.  I encourage my students to make mistakes and to keep the lines of communication as open as possible.  Singers are perfectionists, and we're constantly telling ourselves what we do wrong- we don't need someone else enforcing that negativity.

I concentrate on a classical vocal technique, with proper posture, efficient breathing, lack of facial and body tension, and healthy vocal production. I believe that it is important to have a strong foundation of healthy technique no matter what style of singing. My teaching style and lesson focus will be different for each individual person, and I'm very flexible in adapting to each singer's needs and personality.

I am a very understanding teacher, and very patient, but I will push you to work to your potential! What you put into these lessons and your practicing is what you will get out of it. I am not strict, but I do expect dedication, passion, and respect. I am a very enthusiastic and energetic teacher, and lessons with me will be fun, productive, and encouraging.

If I sound like the right teacher for you, please arrange a trial lesson to see how well we work together!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room, piano, full-length mirror, comfortable seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students. I specialize in classical singing- applicable to any style of singing!

I'm delighted to write a review for Belinda. She's personable, professional and, just as important, very patient. As a beginner I found her explanation of proper breathing techniques extremely useful and an big step toward voice control. I would recommend Belinda without question for anyone hoping to make the transition from "wanting to sing" to "able to perform"! Two thumbs up!

About Christopher
My name is Chris and I am a professional guitar player. I have been teaching sense 2008 now and sharing the joy of music with others has become a passion of mine.
I started playing the piano at the age of five, the trumpet at nine and the guitar at thirteen. Over the years I have also learned to play the drums, bass, harmonica as well as how to sing. I studied at L.A. Music Academy as well as Musicians Institute. I am currently in two bands and putting together a third. I do session work for other artists and have played the National Anthem for a profession football team.

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking lessons from me there are many things my students can expect. First and most importantly it will be fun! Music is supposed to be fun and expressive so why make it boring and repetitive? For each student that I have I make a custom
curriculum just for them based on their musical desires, strengths and weaknesses so I can help them become the best player that they can be. Each lessons will be a balance of learning new technique and theory and applying them in songs that excite and inspire.
Things such as: music theory, ear and harmony training, single string technique, sight and cord chart reading, cord structure, song writing, tone shaping, guitar maintenance and playing live will be covered with students as they advance. Feed back is always welcome and appreciated. This is your lesson, let's make sure you get the most out of it.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Studio: Guitars, amps, mixing board, protools, computer with external stereo, seating for parents can be arranged

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my own guitar and cables. But the student will need to have their own guitar, amp etc

*** Specialties ***
Blues, Rock, Metal, Jazz, Funk and Country

About Jack
I've been a working musician, recording artist, and teacher in the Los Angeles area for over 10 years now. I've had the opportunity to study with many great educators like Maury Baker (Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendrix, Frank Zappa) and Kei Akagi (Miles Davis, Stanley Turrentine, Al Di Meola). I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of California Irvine in music (specifically in jazz drum set performance). I'm also well versed in marching percussion and can teach beginner to advanced levels if necessary. No matter what level, music should be fun. When you establish goals and make progress, music can be the most rewarding thing in your life.

I took lessons with Jack when I moved to the area. I fully and wholeheartedly recommend Jack. He really is an amazing teacher! He used his expertise to make music understandable to me and adapted his explanations to my learning style.

He prepared the class according to my interests and made the class totally enjoyable. He is absolutely patient. I have no musical background and English is not my first language, so teaching someone like myself if a challenge. But Jack not only increased my drumming knowledge but also my passion for playing drums. Thank you Jack!

Unfortunately, I moved again, otherwise I would still be playing drums with him.

About Rees
I am a professional multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and producer. I graduated from USC Thornton School of Music with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance, specifically within Popular Music. Students can expect their lessons to be highly personalized based on their interests and learning styles. Having operated in so many facets musically, I know how much depth is involved in being a complete musician and I encourage my students to be lifelong music lovers. I've performed alongside wide ranging acts such as John Fogerty, Glenn Frey, The Beach Boys, X-Ambassadors, and Diplo, and I've been mentored by greats such as Patrice Rushen and Glen Ballard. Knowing the value that mentorship has played in my musical journey encourages me to pay-it-forward. I love working with students who are as curious and passionate as I am.

About Dylan
I have played on national tv, toured the U.S. a few times with signed bands, I endorse various drum and cymbal companies, and my drumming can be heard (and played) in the Guitar Hero and Rock Band video games. I studied at Berklee College Of Music for drum set and at University Of New Hampshire for classical percussion.

I've taught almost 20,000 drum lessons over 25 years to hundreds of students. I've taught at several music schools in LA and Boston, including Berklee College Of Music. Past students have included kids and adults with special needs, professional musicians, and famous actors. My students play gigs, concerts, and teach their own drum students.

For my beginners, we play the full drum set right away although it is not necessary to own drums. For my advanced and intermediate students, I pass on the material given to
me while I attended Berklee. It is also easy for my lessons to switch gears so we can on work on material that the students may need for their individual situation (i.e. preparing for school auditions, learning favorite songs for talent shows, etc.). My lessons are demanding, I am strict, and that's why my students are awesome.

About Robert
Hi! My name is Robert and I am an experienced bass player seeking both bass and guitar students. I am currently studying music education and working toward my teaching credential. I pride myself on my knowledge of music theory and my discipline on my instrument.

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. I make a custom plan for every student based on their previous experience and their personal goals for our time together.

I currently play with both a funk/soul band and reggae band where I showcase my talents on the bass guitar. I have been playing with various bands for 15 years, but I always have room to improve. I hope to instill the idea that learning an instrument is a life long journey
in my students. I look forward to hearing from you!
