About Omar G.

Riverside, CA

View Full Profile

I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

About Omar
Knowing that you are looking for a instructor to teach you music puts a smile on my face. You see, music has been a part of my life since the age of 3. Some of my first memories are of me accompanying my father at home with his rehearsals or just singing together to have fun as a family. I believe music is a gift that unites people together bringing out our deepest emotions that words cannot express. At the age of 5 I received an organ and from that point on I embarked on a long life journey to indulge and learn more about music. In elementary, junior high and high school I was involved in any subject dealing with music. I joined school choirs, orchestras, bands, marching bands, jazz bands, musicals you name it. While enjoying all school music activities I was selected to join in honor county and state orchestras and choirs. In junior h
igh and high school I was selected to play for the Junior Pacific Symphony Orchestra, received scholarships to music summer camps, and was selected musician of the year. In college my quest continued with the Orange Coast College Orchestra, Praise Symphony Orchestra, Vanguard University Orchestra as well as guitar ensembles and college choir groups. I've also taken private lessons from Dr. Art David (Julliard graduate) in stand up bass as well as David Black (Pacific Symphony Orchestra) and classical guitar with Richard Glenn and David Murray. I've been teaching now for 15 years in guitar, classical guitar, bass guitar, stand up bass, cello, piano and voice ranging from 5 yr old to 65 yr old. My styles of music range from classical, jazz, rock, blues and contemporary. At this point I'm enjoying playing and singing in my church choir and worship team as well as teaching my two kids the joys of music. I hope you truly enjoy the joy of learning music whether it be through me or another teacher.

*** 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.

First lesson was more of an assessment of where I am as a musician, it was a good lesson but I'm sure the next will be better. Omar is obviously a professional. Hopefully he will be able to teach me how to read music as good as he soon.

I am great with kids and have received excellent feedback about my teaching style. I play 5 instruments and teach guitar, ukulele, and bass.

With each lesson you will find a fun and easy to understand way to improve your playing tailored just for you. No internet video can do that.

Simply choose this plan and select the amount of time you would like to work with me. I would suggest messaging me before you schedule, so that I can figure out the best plan for you.

About Michael
Hello future rockstars! Now is the time for you to unlock your potential and take your interest in the guitar to the next level. Whether it is for a future career, a hobby, or just to be able to play a song for your friends, I can develop a personalized plan to get you the results you desire.

I am currently a student at Cal State Fullerton and also a musician with performing and recording experience since the age of 14. My passion for music began ever since I had heard Dazed and Confused by Led Zeppelin on the radio. Since then, I have played in restaurants, weddings, bars and other venues all around Orange County and LA as a lead guitarist, rhythm guitarist, and bassist. The music that I specialize in playing are mostly acoustic, Pop, alternative rock, R&B, and classic rock. I like to song write and record my own music as well and the
refore have acquired a strong attention to detail and solid work ethic to achieve my desired results.

I believe in creating a positive and exciting work environment where we can have you develop at your own pace in a productive way. A great teacher is one that customizes their lesson to fit the student's individual needs while making the lesson educational and fun!

Being that I am one of the younger guitar teachers out there, I am able to better relate to younger students on a more personal level and possess an energetic teaching style and willingness to better myself as a teacher and musician just as much as my student.

Still have some questions before you try a first lesson? I am available to answer your questions! Just message me through this website and I will respond within only a few hours.

I am a guitar player, singer/songwriter performer and recording artist. I am self taught and formally trained, graduate from Musicians Institute. I play acoustic and electric guitar. As my student, I will work at your pace teaching you basic music theory, guitar chord charts and tab so that you can easily learn how to play your favorite songs and create your own songs.

About cristine
I am a Musicians Institute graduate. guitar player, singer/songwriter, performer and recording artist. I have an Associates degree in Communication studies. I am a guitar instructor at Guitar Center and have been background checked by my employer. In addition to my self released album on Amazon and CD Baby, I performed originals and cover tunes at various coffee houses and pubs in the U.S as well as abroad.
In order to help students easily understand basic music theory such as scales and how chords are constructed, my teaching skills entail some understanding of the piano and how it relates to the guitar. My idea of teaching is to supply the tools needed so that my students can learn a song on their own just by knowing how to read guitar chord charts and tab. I also can provide tips on live performances such as overcoming stage fright.

Guitar was my first instrument, the one that set me off on my musical journey, and guitar lessons were what helped me develop my passion for music. My goal now is to inspire a love for music in others and guide those who are seeking a career in music. I am a patient teacher well versed in classic rock, pop, blues, acoustic, metal, funk, and r&b. I also teach jazz and classical guitar, and can prepare those planning to attend college for music. In lessons we will develop a personalized lesson plan that best suits your goals, whether you’d like to learn your favorite song or prepare an audition/jury piece. Music theory will be incorporated as it pertains to your overall goal, and music lessons will center around tablature as well as lead sheets, playing by ear, and traditional music notation. Concepts like the circle of fifths, chord progressions, scale theory, improvisation, and transposition will all be covered. Included in the cost of lessons are all printed materials, play along ...

About Josh
I am a Composer, Songwriter, Guitarist, Bassist, and Keyboard/Synth player. My passion is modern music and art with a focus on excellence and attention to detail. I love music of all genres from old to modern, high class to low brow, and seek to instill a similar appreciation in my students. Encouraging pupils to achieve and create new goals is my passion.

My educational background is split between the composition of music and the study of music technology, allowing for a broader range of study should the student desire. Recipient of BA in Music Composition and BA in Music Technology, Cum Laude.

I have been playing and teaching for the past 10 years and can guide students through their own musical journey. I can teach students to read/write music and pursue the study of music with academic rigor, to learn how to create contemporary
music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

Currently I play bass guitar in a modern Jazz/Neo-Soul band where we perform original songs as well as arrangements of "jazz standards", improvise in response to various prompts, graphic scores, art pieces, and perform for community events.

Ive really enjoyed my experiences with Josh. He is well versed in all styles of composition and specializes in more modern avant-garde styles. Our lessons in modern counterpoint have really improved my harmonizations skills and expanded what I thought was capable for chords in a band setting.(i.e. jazz big band, concert band, orchestra, etc.)
