About Brent
About me:

I have playing guitar for 20+ years. I have been teaching and playing professionally for 10+ years. II have worked with students of all levels from the average beginner to the semi professional. I have also done plenty of group work by working with bands of up to 10 and classrooms up to 30 kids. What I am trying to say is that I have worked with everybody. No matter what level, style, age or whatever I am here to help you get to the next level.

What you will get:

If you are looking for an informative, strong, fast-paced, structured, and most importantly fun lesson, then I am the guy for you.

I like to assess where each student is at and fine tune a lesson plan that will help each individual achieve the goals that they want to achieve. Every student has their own journey in music and I like to help them get ther
e by making a lesson plan that works for them.

The instruments that I specialize in teaching are guitar and bass at all levels and styles. I can also help teach beginner to intermediate piano students.

Location:

I just moved to Los Angeles from Asbury Park, New Jersey. So I am new to the area but I am looking forward to meeting and teaching the incredible musicians here in California.

We can either do lessons at your house for $50/hr lesson once a week or you can come to my studio for $40/hr lesson once a week.

I am flexible with times so just contact me and we can go from there.

Looking forward to meeting you,
Brent Bergholm

Long Beach, CA

View Full Profile

I started playing guitar & bass around the age of 8. I've studied with a jazz legend and toured around the US. I teach all skill levels. From music theory, basic concepts, learning songs to advanced techniques. I'm here to help you on your journey I've becoming a fantastic bass player. Together we'll overcome the physical, mental and technical challenges. Are you ready PLAY?!

About Zach
“I have a passion for music and my greatest goal in life is to share that passion one way or another.”

Zach P. started his musical journey before he could speak with his father starting his ear-training as a toddler. He’s taught all levels of guitar, piano and voice for several years. He graduated with a Bachelors in Music and Mathematics from Cal State: Long Beach and the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music. He’s performed in various groups for nearly two decades, headlining in venues across the US such as The House of Blues, Hard Rock Hotel and others. He’s written and recorded songs that have received hundreds of thousands of streams, were used in major network commercials and placed on national top 100 radio charts. He's worked with artists like MAX, Gnash, Jim Keltner (The Traveling Wilburys, Bob Dylan) and Fred Tacket (Little F
eat).

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is unique, so I create a unique lesson plan to fit the interests and ability of each my students. My main focus while teaching is creating a safe and fun environment for my students. While learning a musical instrument or skill requires a fair amount of technical knowledge and discipline, it should also be fun and engaging. You won’t practice if you don’t like what you’re doing! I like to give students tools that allow them to be creative and play around. This gives them an opportunity to naturally develop their own unique musical voice which technical study and practice will only enrich and expand.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my own instrument and amplification if needed as well as teaching materials like books, staff or tab paper, and pencils. I expect students to provide their own instruments.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock and pop music, in the broadest possible definitions of the genres.

I first got to talking with Zach back in 2015, I had been looking for an accomplished musician to play at my husbands birthday party. He did not disappoint! ! Everyone was very impressed with his music style and professionalism. Through that connection we got to talking, and I also learned that he teaches music all over the south bay! Years later now in 2019, My 16 year old son had been wanting to take electric guitar lessons, but we had not been finding a good fit with a teacher. My son is very smart and artistic, however struggles with a mild learning disability. I reached out to Zach, and we discussed giving it a try. Zach is very patient and breaks up the music information in a way that is very understandable for my son, and is hands on pointing out the best techniques to help him excel, and stay engaged. My son has been taking lessons from Zach once a week for a few months, and I cannot believe my sons progress!! He actually enjoys learning the guitar and is feeling very inspired to continue to learn more because he is learning to play all the songs he is interested in. MY son is now teaching me how to play some new songs..I am thankful to Zach for empowering my son to unlock his musical ability and keeping him interested in learning in a stress free environment. Zach although very professional, he is a relaxed teacher, and very relatable to young people, teens and young adults which I think makes lessons fun! I am very picky about who teaches my kids, and Zach I would say checks off all the right boxes!!

Learn multiple styles of bass including Blues, Rock, Country and along with the theory necessary to create your own bass parts.

About Richard
I have studied, performed and taught music for over 30 years. Accordion was my first instrument at age 7 which was a great introduction to the keyboard, melody and harmony. That was followed by guitar and other stringed instruments (Banjo, Ukulele) as well as drums. I studied with great teachers in the past as well as at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. I have also performed at the Cape Cod Jazz Festival, The Bakersfield Jazz Festival and numerous club dates and private functions throughout New York, New England and California.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students will experience an "original" lesson based on how they learn. Some students benefit most from a visual standpoint reading music or tab while others learn best by an auditory or hearing approach. We will explore what works best for you. Whether its blues, rock jazz o
r other styles, we will find the best avenue to progress toward your goals. At the same time I believe it should always be a fun thing to do!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars - Drums - Banjo - Amplifiers - Piano - Accordion - Ukes and other assorted instruments

*** Specialties ***
Depending on student interest, I teach numerous styles (Rock, Blues Jazz improvisation) by reading music or by ear. Some students are more visual while others are auditory learners. Whichever is best for the student.

We are 2 beginners taking the class together. We have taken 3 lessons. Rich is teaching us finger strengthening exercises, chords and notes which we can use to play songs, and encouraging us to find melodies using just the strings. The lesson flies by and already we can see our improvement. Last summer I tried to teach myself using YouTube and I have learned so much more in 3 weeks than I learned all summer. He is upbeat and positive. I would recommend him as a ukulele teacher.

About Jason W.

Montebello, CA

I've been teaching bass guitar for over 12 years now in a variety of different styles. Some styles include, but not limited to: rock, metal, funk, blues, pop and more. I like to work on various techniques and playing styles so that my students develop their own unique approach and can incorporate many different styles into their own playing.

About Jason
I've been playing and studying guitar for 17 years as well as teaching for 14. I grew up in Minnesota and started playing guitar when I was 13 years old. Self-taught for three years, I developed a passion and love for music. Upon turning 16, I expanded my knowledge studying with a local guitarist, a musical genius in my opinion, who made a huge impact on my playing. In the fall of 2007 I relocated to Los Angeles to attend Musicians Institute for guitar performance. I graduated in 2009.

Over the course of the last 10 years+ I've been a part of many different live performing bands and currently work with my original bands Delphian and Smoke Hollow. A full song from Smoke Hollow can be heard in the photo/video section below off of our debut album. Delphian can be seen and heard featured on screen in the major motion picture Mike Judge f
ilm “Extract”. I study, perform and have vast knowledge in the styles of blues, classical, country, folk, jazz, metal and rock n' roll. Everyday as I continue to grow as a teacher and musician, so does my love for the guitar. I very much enjoy sharing my knowledge and seeing each of my students progress and grow as musicians.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every lesson will be tailored exactly to what you want to learn. We can cover specific topics such as music theory, harmony and improvisation, but if you would prefer to just work on learning your favorite songs, that's precisely what we'll do. Let me know what you want to learn and it will be done. We'll monitor your progress to help reach your goals. Most importantly, we will have fun while learning!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Acoustic and electric guitars and basses, amps, cables, music stands, PC with recording software

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide my own equipment. Guitar, amp, and cables. Students should have their own guitar and amp.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock and metal, but I love to teach other styles like classical guitar, blues, jazz, and country.

My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out.

About Dillon
Dillon C., a San Diego native, has been studying guitar since age 11. He began gigging professionally with local rock groups at age 14 and became interested in jazz while in high school where he played in the La Costa Canyon High School Jazz Band. In 2009, his rock group, The New Archaic, won Best New Artist at the San Diego Music Awards and were nominated for Best Alternative Album in 2010.

He graduated from San Diego State University as a Classical Guitar Performance major where he studied under world-famous classical guitarist Celin Romero. He received a scholarship to study in Spain under legendary guitarists Manuel Barrueco and David Russell. He studied jazz guitar under local luminaries Peter Sprague and Bob Boss. He plays in many different jazz groups around town, most notably the In Motion Collective which was voted Best Jazz a
t the 2011 San Diego Music Awards and nominated for the same award in 2013. The group has opened for national and international acts like the Mattson 2, Budos Band, Sierre Leone Refugee All-Stars, and Zongo Junction.

Dillon began teaching while still in high school, where he taught the Magdalena YMCA group guitar classes. He has also been teaching privately since then as well as at the Encinitas School of Music and Electric Ladyland Music School in Ocean Beach. He focuses on learning chords and songs, developing rhythm, proper technique, an understanding of theory and composition, all while making the lessons fun and interesting for the student.

*** Lesson Details ***
All you need to be prepared on our first lesson is your guitar (acoustic or electric) and a folder for lesson materials. If you are doing piano lessons you will need a folder for lesson materials only. I will provide a keyboard for you.
Options for lesson times are 30, 45, or 60 minute lessons.
I start beginner students with some great introductory chords and songs and use these as a platform to develop technique. As you progress, we will get into more challenging songs, learn about music theory (scales, keys, improvisation) and will also learn about composing songs.

Electric and Acoustic Guitars
Nord Electro Keyboard
Amplifiers
Laptop/Speakers for Education Aid

*** Travel Equipment ***

Dillon is a first rate guitar instructor!

I've taken lessons with Dillon for 5 months, and he has helped me make tremendous progress. I was lucky to find Dillon because my music interests are all over the place. I wanted to learn about fingerstyle, soul, jazz, blues, Latin music, music theory, transcribing for bands. Dillon helped me with all of those. He's the kind of person whose has really studied the guitar and can distill the music from many styles into a few simple ideas for the guitar, and explain those ideas in a memorable way.

I'll continue taking lessons from him, and would recommend him as a teacher to anyone looking for a teacher with charisma.

Dillon is an absolutely amazing teacher. I just started playing the piano a few months ago and he has been instrumental in motivating me and giving me the tools I need to get started. He is always willing to switch it up each lesson depending on how I am feeling that week and I really enjoy working with him. Dillon is extremely talented and dedicated to music which is really great, because starting out can be hard. I would highly recommend Dillon to anyone!

Become an excellent bass player in any style you want.

About Mikel
Hello there! My name is Mikel, I'm a Spanish singer-songwriter, producer, arranger, composer and a million things more that has to do with music. But that is not important right now, you are the important individual in this conversation.

I want to tell you a bit about why I'm here:I feel music everywhere, in movement, noise, people, nature, animals, silence, etc. It would be an understatement to put music into a category of comparisson with other things for me, because is basically my natural state of appreciation towards life. But, I can say something: I just want to help the world listen to that music, that is everywhere. I want the chance to help you get into the world of music, I will teach you to learn about your own musical ability and influences. I'm not going to impose a genre, style, technique to you. I want to help you disco
ver your own path and we will go on your own pace. Luis Alberto Spinetta, one of my favorite musicians, once said that we are just bridges that connect the rest of the people to music. I believe that we owe ourselfs and to music, being truth to our own being and open enough to let that magic flow through us and reach the rest of the world.

We will work not only in how to play an instrument, but music itself, theory, arranging, composing, songwriting, tricks and formulas, pop, experimental and advance harmonic techniques.

See you on our first lesson, and bring some tunes you like!
