Guitar Lessons in Corona, CA

By Milton J. - Corona Guitar Teacher

Are you looking forward to taking guitar lessons in Corona? Wondering if you can foster your learning and performing? Well, you’ve come to the right place in the Circle City! My name is Milton, and I teach guitar lessons in Corona, CA. With nearby attractions, concert halls, amphitheaters, and arenas, there are quite a few places to go to be around like-minded guitar shredders, pluckers and strummers and to showcase your musical talents. Here are a few local music hotspots in Corona that may help you find wonderful resources for your guitar learning!

Music and Arts Center (http://stores.musicarts.com/corona) This is one of our local Sam Ash-esque music shops to find a good selection of sheet music, how-to books, and new and lightly-used guitars to play on and buy. If you’re looking for new songs to learn in your lessons with your new TakeLessons teacher, or if you’re ready to graduate to another guitar, the Corona Music Center is a good place to start.

It’s A Grind Coffee House (https://www.facebook.com/ItsAGrindEagleGlen) A nice, well-maintained coffee shop in its own right, It’s A Grind offers a wonderful open mic night on Thursdays. This is one of my favorite spots to check out local music talent. Wonderful musicians come through the doors every week, so all aspiring guitarists in Corona should check this out!

Rockefellas (http://rockefellasbar.com) If you’re of age and enjoy the dive-bar vibe, wonderful live bands strut their stuff on the Rockefellas stage. If you’re a guitarist in a band, this is a wonderful venue to play gigs and show off what you’ve learned in your lessons!

The Vibe (https://www.facebook.com/TheVibeBarAndGrill) This Riverside hotspot for the college-age crowd near UCR is a great place to discover local R&B, hip-hop, pop, and rock talent. Head out on a Friday with your friends, and you may meet a new artist to collaborate with in the future.

Fox Center and Riverside Municipal Auditorium (http://www.riversidelive.com) Both these venues are wonderful places to take in a musical or concert. The theaters bring in top-tier performers, and The Fox has an open mic night, usually in the third week of the month. So, be sure to check the calendar to see when your favorite show or artist is coming to town!

Have fun finding new music to learn, watch, and love in Corona! Keep in mind, too, that the best-fitting guitar teacher and daily practice will help you hit all of your guitar goals in a timely and enjoyable manner. Most importantly, have fun playing guitar here in your city of Corona!

About Chris
Hi there! My name is Chris and I've been playing music my entire life and I believe that with the right attitude and environment anyone can achieve musical greatness!

I was born into a musical family and have studied classical piano since I was 4 years old! I am very well versed in music theory and proper technique, with an emphasis on avoiding player's injuries, as well as a great knowledge of classical Pieces for any skill level.

Alas!

As a young teenager I grew rebellious and learned how to play the electric guitar and have since sought teachers outside my family to learn modern styles and 5 other instruments!! I have also worked toward a music degree and have made music the center of my life.

Classical music is not everyone's passion but a good practice routine, attitude and environment is always a good thing to ha
ve as these things are important regardless of your favorite music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are held with a fun and relaxed attitude. Learning music should always be enjoyable and a good attitude and love for music is cultured and encouraged.

Lessons are structured just like a practice session should be. We will begin with a warm-up exercise designed to acquaint you with the proper technique to meet your personal musical goals. the next activities are highly personalized, but is usually something like reading music or a music theory game. These activities are things that are good for you but may not be your favorite part of learning music. They will, however, go a long way toward your better understanding of how your favorite music is structured.

Examples could be learning about 12 bar blues, common strum patterns (for guitar), scales, sight-reading, or music analysis.

We will spend the rest of class learning and practicing an activity of your choice. This is usually a song but can be anything you wish to improve upon. this is usually a long-term goal of yours. *I've always wanted to learn......*

By structuring our lessons the same as how you will practice, and by keeping good notes, it will be easy for you to take on practice at home and achieve all of your musical goals!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have their own guitar/piano/keyboard etc. Guitar/violin students should also have a music stand and tuner to keep at home. I will bring picks, spare tuner, music, and handouts.

*** Specialties ***
I primarily specialize in classical piano in styles such as Muzio Clementi and Frederic Chopin. I also play Bach and various Spanish classical guitar pieces. I have also extensively studied electric guitar in Blues such ZZ Top, Metal such as Metallica, and rock such as Led Zeppelin. I have also studied Irish and Celtic folk music for instruments such as Mandolin and Violin.

Obviously very talented guitar play- but I prefer a teacher who knows traditional Hawaiian Ukelele. He left me with a lot to practice which is great - but I would prefer a teacher who knows the Uke better.

I begin where ever the student is, Either if it's at day one, or learning a blues song we will jump into it and fun learning whatever it is that the student wishes to learn. All I ask for is 30 minutes everyday for the student to keep learning what we have set out to learn.

About Gino
Hi future guitar players. My name is Gino and I have been playing guitar since I was 16 years old. I'm 32 now and still playing with no end in sight. Out of all the genres of music my favorite has been Rock and Roll. I love it to death. I can remember learning songs by some of my favorite bands such as Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Nirvana, Oasis, Black Sabbath, Ac/Dc, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Alice In Chains, Motorhead, etc and the joy I got that a song that I once thought I could not learn I did. Yet like all things in life it took time and dedication, and that is all I ask for from my students. I have a Bachelors degree in music at Whittier College and also have an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts at Fullerton JR. College. I’m here and ready to teach how to play like your Heroes.

*** Lesson Details ***
The only thing I ask from my studen
ts is time and dedication. Not everyone starts out great on guitar, or any other instruments for that matter. It takes time but if they stick to it then they can achieve anything. The structure of my lessons is very simple. We first begin with standard cords such E, G, A, and so on and putting them into chord progressions. Once that has been achieved we then go on to learning simple songs. They can bring in song books by some of their favorite bands or artist, and if they want I can also begin showing them scales. Such as blues scales, major, minor, harmonic minor, and a little bit of theory too. But the most important things is that we keep the lessons fun. So if you want to have learning the guitar and learn songs by some of your favorite bands than let’s do it.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Office: large couch, chairs, music stand, copier, small amp, cables, room for parents to sit in during the lesson

*** Specialties ***
Basic guitar, Acoustic guitar, Rock guitar and Blues guitar.

Hi! I teach all skill levels and cover a wide range of subjects, including:

Chords
Scales

Songs/guitar solos
Improvisation (pop/jazz/R&B/rock)
Reading sheet music/chord charts

I have taught guitar since 2012 and have taken lessons from teachers who have played for Backstreet Boys, Jennifer Lopez, and many more. I have Bachelor's and Master's degrees in guitar performance from Azusa Pacific University. Looking forward to hearing from you!

About Jeremy
Hi! My name is Jeremy. I started playing guitar at the age of 14 and by 16 I knew I wanted to play music for a living. I played in bands all through high school and studied music in college, graduating from Azusa Pacific University in 2013 with a Bachelor's in guitar performance. In May 2017 I will complete my Master's in guitar performance, also at APU. I have had the opportunity to study with great teachers including Tom Hynes (Kim Richmond big band, Disneyland), Steve Cotter (Joey DeFrancesco), and Adam Hawley (Jennifer Lopez, Backstreet Boys, Lalah Hathaway)

I'm currently a professional musician, playing guitar and keys. I have been very fortunate to perform or tour with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Ethan Bortnick, Martha Reeves, and Melissa Manchester. I gig regularly with corporate/wedding bands and perform in many styles inclu
ding: pop, funk, blues, R&B, jazz, gypsy jazz, Latin rock, solo guitar, classical, and Christian worship music. I have also played in pit orchestras for musical theater and done sidelining work on the pilot episode of a TV show.

I started giving private lessons in 2012 and have taught guitar and piano to students from age 8 to 45, all skill levels. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Student will learn basic technique to strengthen fingers including scales and other agility exercises. Rep will depend on the student's goals and needs.

About Sean
Hi, there! My name is Sean Roberts. I'm a singer/songwriter/producer and guitarist here in Orange County, CA and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1997. I specialize in beginners and intermediate players but can also help advanced players as well. I love helping my students learn their favorite songs, learning how to solo, and being able to play with other musicians without fear.

Philosophy:
I teach the language of music through guitar, bass and piano. It is up to the student to develop their own sentences through the guidance that I provide. Many students feel overwhelmed by the thought of learning to read music. My goal is to make it easy as well as fun. Your lesson will always be geared toward what YOU want to learn, and if it seems like we are working on something that doesn't match that, I will
always take the time to make clear why what we are doing will have you be able to play what you want.

My Commitment To You:
There is nothing like having private instruction. Besides enjoyment music contributes to the development of imagination, creativity, positive self concept, achievement, self discipline and positive social skills. I go out of my way to make sure that all of these criteria are met by tailoring the lessons to each students learning ability. You already have every skill you need to be a great performer, and my job is just to steer the ship in the right direction to have that happen. All I am ever doing in a lesson is making sure that we are moving you in the ultimate direction that you want to be going musically.

I'm a easy going teacher and and my teaching style is geared to the way that you learn, at your pace. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! My job is to make you better than me. I will do everything I know how to do to make sure that what I have learned that will benefit you becomes something you have mastered. If I could take the "computer chip" in my head and put it in yours, we would do that. Study with me and you will get the next best thing!

I've been teaching the guitar for 11 years and my students have gone on to playing in bands professionally. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to move freely throughout the fret board and as time goes on you'll be able to play songs and various scales and solos. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Paul
I attempt to establish what an individual’s interests in guitar are as well as to develop their understanding of musical fundamentals. I have several books that I use as examples and I write individual exercises for more specific issues to an individual’s unique style.

Learning guitar should be fun, accessible, and emphasizing the positive aspects of it to ensure a pleasant and fun experience for all involved. There is no better way to increase this process than regular lessons and practice.

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!

Hi There! I grew up in Kentucky in a family that had a bluegrass band, and have been steeped in country, folk, and bluegrass my entire life. I performed and taught extensively in Berlin, Germany, and had a bluegrass variety show. If you want to learn some authentic licks and get an authentic sense for Americana Music, I'm your gal!
I'd love to give you some listening references, and we'll have you playing some of your favorite songs on the acoustic guitar in no time. We'll start with the basics- strum patterns, chords, and songs you already know. Then, we'll progress to looking at flat picking, so you can play your own solos. I'll pick along on the Mandolin as you get better on solos. Bonus- we can work on singing the songs too if you are interested.
I look forward to meeting you and pickin' some tunes!

About Laura
Hey Ya'll!
I'm Laura, and I grew up in a log cabin in Kentucky, no joke! My three sisters and I sang in the church where my Mama played organ, and our family had a bluegrass band. I learned piano at an early age from my Grandpa Joe, and played French Horn and Mellophone in Marching Band and Concert band through Middle school and High School. At the University of Kentucky I was in some of the best Collegiate choirs in the country, and thats also when I started playing in my own band.
I moved to Europe when I was 20, and started playing street music and performing locally. Well, that turned into me having my own variety show called the Southern Flavor Show, and touring quite a bit, all over Europe.
Now, I'm settled in Redlands CA, and work part-time in the Music Industry in Los Angeles at one of the worlds leading recording studios.
We record all kinds of music there, but my favorite music is and will always be the Bluegrass, Folk, and Country music that I grew up with. I'm excited about getting to share my love of music with you!
My main goal is for you to stay inspired and for this to be fun- music technique and practicing can be challenging, but we will find ways to keep you interested and motivated, by listening to lots of recorded music, and making sure you really love the songs you are learning.
I have a special focus on preparation for live performance and jam situations, based on years of practical experience. I know and can relate to performance anxiety, and know exactly how to get you or your child ready for a live performance, music video, or show. As they say, the show must go on, and it’s your time to shine!
