Becky S. - Guitar Teacher in Glendale

Burgeoning guitar players in Glendale can find inspiration in every direction. From the array of diverse small venues in Glendale, to the classic Los Angeles hotspots in nearby neighborhoods, there are tons of things to inspire you and your guitar playing.

Amoeba Amoeba in Hollywood is the music store to fulfill any audiophile's fantasy. This giant music store lures fans with its city block wide music selection and frequent in-store events. Get lost in the aisles of unexpected and familiar genres around the store and treat yourself to an unusual CD from the dollar bin - a perfectly fun option for music students who are just getting started with guitar lessons in Glendale. Their annual Mardi Gras "parade" particularly embodies the store's fun and silliness and should not be missed.

If you're in the mood to browse for music but aren't in the mood for an Amoeba-level wandering, Atomic Records in Burbank is a smaller, but just as mighty music shop even closer to Glendale.

For large scale tours and big name bands, The Hollywood Bowl, L.A. Live, The Wiltern, and The Greek (to name a few) are just a skip away. These power houses are must-stop venues for most North American tours. What’s a better way to get inspired after a few guitar lessons in Glendale then to watch the professionals take the stage?

Amphitheaters like The Hollywood Bowl and The Greek let you wave your (figurative) California flag high as you enjoy music in the open air.

If you're just in the mood for drooling over some truly beautiful guitars, Imperial Vintage Guitars in Burbank and Sherman Oaks offers plenty of eye candy. They also boast a repair shop, should you find yourself in need. Grayson's Tune Town is a guitar shop right in Glendale that does repairs and offers rental options if you are just getting to know the type of guitars you enjoy playing.

In Glendale, live music venues are everywhere. Watching local artists in small venues can really connect you in to your local musician network, as well as inspire you to keep practicing.

Left Coast Wine Bar & Gallery offers a cozy upstairs loft where intimate acts compliment the relaxed lounge. On Sundays, they have an open mic night, where you can get up on stage yourself. Open mic nights are a perfect way to show off that you have been taking guitar lessons in Glendale and keeping up with your practicing.

Complex is Glendale's finest gritty bar venue. This is the type of place where garage bands pay their dues and have a good time doing it.

Jax Bar & Grill is a must for local jazz lovers. Steamy acts are served up seven nights a week.

Though Glendale's local music venues lean in the direction of bars, a short trip to North Hollywood's Republic of Pie offers a classic coffee shop venue for music lovers of all ages. Here, all sorts of acts perform, and all go great with a cup of coffee or a slice of pie. Squashy couches and chairs make this a very comfortable place to enjoy music.

Now you know where to go, get out there and enjoy! The more you listen to and explore the things you love about music, the more proud you can be of all the steps you are taking to be a part of the music community! So what are you waiting for? Sign up for guitar lessons in Glendale now!

See you around town!

About Andrew
If you want to learn what they teach in the guitar program (GIT) at Musicians Institute here in Hollywood, but don't want to spend $30k on tuition and living expenses to do it... Or, if you are planning to attend GIT yourself and want to get way ahead of the curve early, so you too can graduate with top honors... Schedule some lessons with me, at a fraction of the GIT price-tag!

Beginning, intermediate and advanced guitar players will all benefit greatly from the vast wealth of guitar- and music-related information and experience that I have to offer (no brag, just fact).

My influences include, but are by no means limited to: Frank Zappa, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Sting, The Cure, Duran Duran, Prince, Lady Gaga, Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Miles Davis, Christina Aguilera, Jimi Hendrix, Queen, Béla Bartók, Igor Stravinsky...and nearly
everyone else making interesting music in the world.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a GIT graduate and will teach you everything they teach at Musicians Institute, one-on-one. Whether you want to learn scales, arpeggios, chords, music theory, harmony, arranging, reading music, writing music, ear training, rhythm guitar styles (rock, pop, jazz, funk), soloing techniques (rock, metal, pop, fusion), songwriting (on acoustic and electric), live performance (pre-show preparedness, eliminating stage fright, developing a professional stage presence), using fx pedals, ideal amplifier settings, finding your signature guitar tone, music production (recording, mixing and mastering), music business (creating your press kit, marketing your music, negotiating payments and contracts)...you name it, I've studied it and will teach it to you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
When I'm not touring and doing sessions, I spend the majority of my time in Hollywood, where I keep a small but full-featured music studio on a nice, quiet little street just off Hollywood Blvd. It's great because it contains all of the necessary items I need to maintain my skills, improve my abilities, and expand my knowledge (sofa, chair, office desk/chair, several amplifiers, guitars, fx pedals, metronome, etc). And in terms of the lessons I teach, while there isn't an on-site waiting area, there are several shops, restaurants and a small Fresh & Easy grocer with a nice, quiet alfresco seating area just a block or so away. What's more, the Hollywood & Highland mall is only a few blocks away. Parking is very convenient in the LA Fitness subterranean garage, the entrance to which is located on North Sycamore Ave. The fee for parking is free for one hour, with easy, no-hassle validation from Fresh & Easy. Note: street parking is permit-only and you will be ticketed...so DO NOT park on the street!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Please bring your instrument, a notebook, pencil, and, if you would like to record your lessons to have and review afterward, a pocket-size recording device. I will typically record moments when a student performs an example of something s/he has been working on, or an improvisation regarding the same. I do this strictly for the purpose of (a) having an example to which to compare and measure the student's progress and improvement over time, and/or (b) to capture a 'magical moment' of musical inspiration that might prove useful to the student's artistic/musical development, etc. At the student's request, I will provide a copy of said recordings (if any) on a CD. All such recordings are kept 100% confidential, are not distributed nor disseminated for any reason whatsoever, and are deleted at such time that the student discontinues his/her lessons with me.

*** Specialties ***
I am a very style-flexible musician and guitarist. Some really great books I've used in my own studies and lessons include: Pepe Romero's 'Guitar Style and Technique,' Ted Greene's 'Chord Chemistry,' George Russell's 'The Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization for Improvisation,' Peter Magadini's 'Polyrhythms,' et al.

I'll teach you to play the music you want to play while learning the skills to be a great guitarist.

About Becky
I believe that if you want something, you have to go for it. I encourage my students to pursue their passions with music and reach as far as they dare imagine. I act as a resource and a guide, helping my students to find their way to their music goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
I give my students a laid back, fun-loving atmosphere that offers as many challenges as they are up to. Students will dive into their favorite types of music, learning techniques pulled from their favorite songs. We will laugh together, work through frustration together, and make wonderful music together. I offer my students the opportunity to push themselves toward their passions and give them the tools to succeed.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a room set up in my home with music stands and seating.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide all workshee
ts, practice material, and sheet music. I can also provide a practice guitar for beginner students, but expect students to buy or rent a guitar of their own before too many lessons pass once they have confirmed their interest in the subject.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in kids and young adults, but am happy to welcome students of all ages! When working with songwriting students, or students who wish to sing along with their guitar, I am happy to include basic vocal work into our lessons.

My daugher Savannah has really flourished in her guitar lessons. Both my daughter and I LOVED Becky and were able to establish a great student teacher relationship. Due to Becky's instruction over our time with her Savannah was accepted into a school of the arts and she is taking things to the next level! I could not have been more satisfied with our experience!

Becky is awesome. My job takes away most of my time and because of that I haven't been able to be very regular in attending all sessions. She had been very patient with me and adjusted the pace as needed for a student like me. She is an enthusiastic teacher and I would recommend Becky as the first guitar teacher for students of all ages. Keep rocking Becky!

Last year, I had the opportunity to study with Christian at CSU Northridge. Christian is one of the finest musicians I have come across in the years that I have been playing music. Not only does he have impressive skills with the guitar, he also has knowledge in the history of the guitar and music theory. When he was studying at CSUN, I was able to have some lessons with Christian on a baroque piece that was giving me trouble. First, I'd like to mention how patient he was with me when I was frustrated and lost in the music. Also, I was surprised at how much he knew about the music as he explained what was going on in the piece and why. Oh... did I mention that I had some AWESOME results after ONE lesson??? Do yourself the favor and check this guy out!

Tarzana, CA
View Full Profile

I teach young children using fun songs, games and classical guitar technique. I also teach adults and specialize in contemporary guitar. I welcome many styles of music, pop, rock, as well as folk genres of Latin America. I emphasize good posture, tone and musicality, and always a high level of enjoyment with the process!

About ELENA
Hello!
Music is my life and my biggest passion. I've been a working musician and a teacher for several years and there's nothing more rewarding than sharing all I've learned so far with my students, to nurture their goals and aspirations and to make them aware of the great instrument they already possess. Every year I plan and host two wonderful recitals for my students, so that they can experience and share their progress with family and friends.

Here's more about me and my education:
I was born and raised in Italy and have been singing since I was a child but started a formal training during my teenage years with a private coach. During college, while studying Psychology at the University of Florence, I attended 2 different private music schools in Florence and Bologna, since it was not possible at the time to study music in Colleg
e. There I kept studying vocal technique, solfege, classical guitar and music harmony.
I moved to LA 11 years ago and attended Musician's Institute earning a diploma in Vocal Studies and Vocal Performance and then I attended a Composition & Songwriting Program at UCLA for 2 years. I refined my vocal technique studying at Berkley College of Music for a summertime in a special program for Jazz Vocalists and I have been an Alexander Technique's student for now 10+ years.
I am a performing artist, I sing and teach privately for a living and, on the side, I help an Opera Touring company promote their tours. I have performed all over the country in some beautiful venues such as the Getty Center and Pantages Theater to name a few. Guitar is my second instrument but I accompany students with my piano during vocal exercises. My personal style of singing is modern, not operatic, I love many kinds of music but especially pop, jazz, and musical theater.

***Lessons Details***

**Singing: Teaching Adults**
There are two sides of singing that I like to work on with my students.
The first is vocal technique, which is first and foremost the study of how to use our instrument, our whole body, in the best and most useful way to avoid strain ad create beautiful sounds. I believe that when we relax and use the right posture, meaning the most natural one, then our bodies and our breathing mechanisms act as they are supposed to, and singing magically happens at its best. When we learn to use our bodies without strain, the right "singing" muscles are automatically engaged and exercised and we feel at ease. So I try to encourage a non-forceful way to use diaphragmatic breathing, which I have learned by studying Alexander Technique, which is a technique that teaches people how to stop using unnecessary levels of muscular and mental tension during any activity, especially during an artistic performance of any kind.
I try to notice bad singing habits the student may have formed throughout his/her life, (hopefully none!), and gently help them correct them. The vocal exercises I use are drawn from the Bel Canto tradition, a classical tradition, but I mix them with more modern vocal exercises to develop popular techniques like "belting" for example.
The second side of singing is simply to pay attention to song interpretation, to convey the message we would like to convey. I encourage the student to choose songs to work on they truly love, and I welcome any style of music. I give the students vocal exercises CDs to help them practice at home.

**Singing: Teaching Children**
What I described above is also true for teaching children, however I like to teach them "by ear" with simple vocal exercises and vocal games at the beginning of the lesson and try to ease them into the sound they naturally make. I like to create a positive environment in which the student can feel successful about even small achievements, whether it is standing in a relaxed way or having practiced the beginning of an exercise or part of a song. To help the student practice at home and keep the motivation alive without feeling overwhelmed I record each lesson (or let them record it) and give them the accompaniment for the song of their choice so they can have fun at home.

*** GUITAR ***
I teach young children using fun songs, games and classical guitar technique. I also teach adults and specialize in contemporary guitar. I welcome many styles of music, pop, rock as well as folk genres of Latin America. I emphasize good posture, tone and musicality, and always a high level of enjoyment with the process!

*** RECITALS ***
I plan and host 2 wonderful Recitals a year, one in January and one in June. I encourage all my students to participate, no matter how they may feel about their instrument level and preparation. Working towards a performance is one of the most effective ways to solidify your ever growing skill!

*** Studio Equipment ***
For students who come to my home studio, there is private guest parking right outside my building, in a gated complex of buildings and in a safe neighborhood just north of the 101. My studio is conveniently located just a few blocks from the freeway entrance. I have a comfortable sofa for parents and siblings to attend the lessons and a keyboard to use for accompaniment. Also, I periodically offer my students the chance to record one song in my studio, equipped with nice microphones and a professional recording system.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For singing lessons I bring my small and light master-keyboard and laptop or I can use the student piano/keyboard. For children's lesson I ask my students to bring a notebook to keep track of practice assignments.

*** Specialties ***
Music theory and Songwriting. Stage performance and how to feel comfortable on stage. Additionally I teach vocal jazz improvisation, Broadway singing and Italian song repertoire.

Max has been on time every time. He has established a very good rapport with my 15 year old (!!!) son which results in my son doing the homework and not dreading the sessions. My son seems relieved to be understanding the Algebra II concepts that he missed during the past term. He also seems way more confident and in a much better mood as if solving this issue for school was weighing him down before. In addition Max is very pleasant, very polite so his presence is welcomed by the rest of the family. Thanks!!!
