I've been taking lessons with Eric since about the Spring of 2013 and have made huge progress in my playing ability since.
I started learning on my own through online lessons, but decided to take lessons with a private instructor after about 5-6 months when I decided I wanted to learn to play Jazz 'proper'.
Eric explains many of the written and unwritten 'rules' of Jazz and has helped my understanding of how to play enormously. I am still at a beginner stage, but I can see myself making good progress.
I went from knowing only basic open chords and some basic jazz chord voicings to learning heaps of new scales and chords to keep me busy and learn the basic building blocks of Jazz - learning how to comp, play melodies, improvise, and learn how to build chord-melody arrangements. Eric is well versed in many types of music and he can relate what we learn to many other styles as well. We cover musical concepts by playing them, hearing how they sound, and also covering what they are theoretically. His teaching method is very comprehensive and I enjoy that.
Eric puts a lot of new information in my lap at every lesson, which I always look forward to, but he is also very patient and understanding. He knows it takes time to be able to understand and execute everything properly. He is also very supportive during the week away from our lessons. He will send you extra info when you need it and will explain anything that needs clarification via email and is usually pretty quick to respond.
We go a little off tangent every once in awhile, but it's all in good fun.
Eric's a great teacher and I look forward to continuing lessons with him in the future."

She utilizes many types of teaching materials such as warm up scale books on a student's level to broadway hits books and other songbooks and songs that will help a student develop his/her range. She also pays attention to good posture and breathing and explains where the breaths should be felt in the person's mouth and also uses silly sounds to get children to make high and low sounds. She is very caring and goes the extra mile and has a beautiful voice herself and also plays the piano and transposes beautifully. We have been transposing most of my daughter's songs to a lower key due to her limited voice range and expanding that slowly. My daughter never balks at going to her lessons, and we are happy with what she has learned and will continue to learn from Barbara!"

Resources for Singing in Corona, CA
By Milton J. - Corona Singing Teacher
Are you interested in taking singing lessons in Corona? Look no further than The Circle City! My name is Milton Jackson, and I teach vocal lessons in Corona, CA. With a lively music scene for a well spread-out city and its proximity to world-class attractions, concert halls, amphitheaters, and arenas, there are quite a few places to go to both showcase your talents and be around fans of your favorite acts and artists.
Here are a few points of interest, local music hotspots, and performing organizations in Corona that may help you find wonderful resources to aid you in your singing lessons:
1) Music and Arts Center (http://stores.musicarts.com/corona) – This is our local Sam Ash-esque music shop to find a good selection of sheet music, how-to books, and instruments. If you’re looking for a pitch pipe to accompany you in your singing lessons or a new song to learn with your new TakeLessons teacher, the Corona Music Center is a good place to start.
2) Live From Memphis Piano Bar (http://www.livefrommemphispianobar.com/) – This wonderful bar and restaurant feel like it was plucked from the streets of Memphis. Expect a wide variety of quality entertainment six days a week, from an all-request, sing-along dueling piano show to a headlining concert to a country band! Take a gander, as there’s a good chance you could find yourself performing there!
3) 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 frontman or woman of a band, this is a wonderful gig place for your shows to show off what you’ve learned in your lessons!
4) The Vibe (https://www.facebook.com/TheVibeBarAndGrill) – this Riverside hotspot for the college-age crowd near University of California, Riverside is a great place to discover local R&B, hip hop, pop, and rock talent. Head out for a Friday with your friends and you may find a new artist for collaboration in the future!
5) Fox Theatre and Riverside Municipal Auditorium (http://www.riversidelive.com) – These recently renovated venues are wonderful places to take in a musical or concert. Both theatres bring in top-tier performers, so make sure to check the calendar to see when your favorite show or artist is coming to town!
6) Circle City Chorale/Circle City Singers (http://circlecitychorale.org) - A relatively new choir founded in January 2010, the Circle City Chorale is comprised of singers 18+ from Corona and surrounding areas. They have performed at Corona's 4th of July parade & festivities at Santana Park, at the Empty Bowls fundraiser in Norco, Corona's Day of the Child event, Corona's Tree Lighting Ceremony, Riverside’s Festival of Lights event, and the tree lighting ceremony at Crossroads Church. They have grown in size, repertoire, and audience attendance at their seasonal shows every year, and are a wonderful group to showcase your love for singing!
Have fun finding new music to learn, watch, and love in Corona! Keep in mind that the best fitting teacher for your singing goals and daily practice will help you hit those goals in a timely and enjoyable manner. Enjoy your singing lessons in Corona!
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 Stud
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!!

*** 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.

What's inside the singing lesson?
Lessons revolve around three basic aspects which are training, singing, and acting.
In training, definitely be ready for some scale exercises. If you want to work on making your vibrato faster, breathe better, sing more loud or soft, sing short or longer phrases, co
In singing, definitely have a song in mind you want to work on. Then we'll discuss which techniques and skills that are essential for that particular genre of music. Other than that, you'll learn singer's diction and will know how to control vowel sounds and consonants more efficiently. Most of this activity involves you singing either a line, a verse, chorus, bridge, or the entire song. It really depends on what level you feel comfortable at. Most of this activity revolves around breathing techniques, phrasing techniques, and you singing the melody correctly on pitch.
In acting, whether you're recording or performing, you'll still need to put an act together. Portrayal of emotions are quite the essential skills to make your sound believable. If singing with feeling is not working out for you, then you might want to consider working on some basic acting skills. Some of the skills covered are voice inflections, rhythm, gestures, body language, and facial expressions. Most of this activity involves you expressing yourself as an artist.
How to be prepared for the lesson?
If you do not have a piano or recording device on hand, I'll provide both devices for you. It's recommended to provide a piano. It doesn't have to be expensive, it just has to be in tuned. If it's digital, you should be fine. It's also recommended to have a recording device. Many clients enjoy recording their lessons on their mp3 players or any other computer devices. Please have a clean and clear space with an electrical outlet for the piano and recording device. Other than that, please wear comfortable clothing as if you are about to play a sport or an activity you enjoy. If you want to dress like a super star that's fine too.
If you're taking lessons online, don't worry about anything because everything will be provided.
