I have a BA in Music Education with an emphasis in voice. I've been teaching for 17 years in classroom and one-on-one settings. Other places where I have taught are: Calvary Chapel Downey School, Dexter Music Academy, and ABC Unified School District.

I've worked with various vocal coaches including Grammy-nominated Ilene

I am also currently the lead singer (also playing guitar & piano) for the band Hello Human. I've worked with amazing musicians including Michael Thompson (guitarist for Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera), and John Robinson (drummer for Quincy Jones, Elton John). I've also had the honor of working with Wyn Davis (producer of No Doubt, Sublime).

My songs have been on Alcoa Tennessee'™s Love 89.1 Radio, Refuge, CSN, WCTL, and on hundreds of other radio stations.

Students can start with me as a beginner or as an advanced student looking to learn new practice skills, new technique, skills, and bow strokes. Students work on scales, exercises for tone and coordination, vibrato, solos, sight reading, rhythm, audition music, and orchestral music. They get 2-6 opportunities to perform per year. I can teach a variety of music styles such as jazz, classical, romantic period music, 20th Century music, contemporary music, bluegrass, Celtic, Irish Fiddle, Scottish Fiddle, movie music, and popular music. I recommend many youth orchestras in the area that I encourage my students to join. Some of my students go to Italy in the summer with their orchestra.

I go at the student's pace and also start out many beginners that have reached Suzuki Book 10 level.

Hello! My name is Taylor and I'm so thrilled that you're interested in the violin! The violin is the most popular of the classical stringed instruments, therefore it is seen and heard in multiple different areas, such as orchestras, movies, video games, and even music you hear on the radio. Although it is very competitive in the world of violin, it is still an instrument that anyone can enjoy, no matter what you decide to do with it. In our lessons, I will make sure that your abilities and interest in the violin are nurtured and increased through our incorporation of technical, musical, and theoretical aspects. We will build your foundations and help you achieve whatever it is you want to do, whether it be getting into an outside orchestra or just improving your abilities. As we build your technique, we will also learn music that will further challenge your new abilities, but that is also something you want to learn.

In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 23 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools!

In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun.

To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired.

Great teacher. He was my music theory tutor, and I was able to skip past two college theory courses within about a week of hour-long tutoring sessions.

From my experience, he works with what you have: he finds your strengths and helps you to learn based on how he believes you'll best receive new information or inspiration. He is able to communicate concepts in many different ways, and always makes sure you understand. He is not long-winded, but communicates the necessary information in a way that is straight-to-the-point, and does not waste time giving his students "busy work," but instead gives them exercises that are directly or indirectly helpful every time. He is a patient teacher, and does not make you feel like you will be left behind. He passionate about teaching and his students, and he does a great job at teaching.

INSTRUMENTAL INSTRUCTION FOR THE BEGINNING MUSICIAN
Music instruction tailored for the individual student

Does your student love music and want to learn to play an instrument? I can help them. My professional career encompasses more than 35 years of elementary level music instruction. I have successfully launched hundreds of students into a growing love of music and a working knowledge of the fundamentals of music and instrumental technique.

Learning music should be fun. Whether your child wants to learn the violin, viola, cello, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet or trombone, I can help. I will develop a curriculum that matches his or her desires, strengths and individual learning style. And we will have fun along the way.

Contact me today to get your child started on the road to musical success.
Mr. Gary Halverson

About Gary
I have been serving the young people of my community for the last 36+ years as an elementary level music teacher. I graduated from Cal State University Fullerton with a BA in Music Education and a K-12 teaching credential in music. I have taught a wide range of music classes including general music, choir, recorder, group guitar, the Mind Institute (piano), and all the orchestra and band instruments: strings, brass and woodwinds. My classroom experience includes early childhood (K-5th grade), english learners and special needs students.

I enjoy working with students who have no musical knowledge or experience and bringing them to a level of proficiency where they can be confident performers on their chosen instrument. Some of my students have continued their music education through college and others have brought their love of music into
their careers as adults.

I realize that I not only teach music, but I teach individuals. So I tailor and fit my music instruction to the unique aptitudes and needs of each child. I want to communicate the fun of creating music as well as the technical aspects of playing an instrument. You can expect your student to gain a solid foundation in the fundamentals of music and instrumental technique. At this time I am offering private music lessons for these instruments: violin, cello, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and trombone. I can also assist/advise parents in choosing a serviceable instrument for their student to rent or own. This has been a real help to several parents and families over the years. Contact me for more information. I’d love to be of help.
