About Gio
Hello there this is Gio L.

I'm a professional guitarist, performer, composer, instructor, international clinician, webinarist, with 20 years or professional experience in music education & live performances. Also, I'm an Italian teacher see " Ciao bella" for more details and an Adobe Photoshop teacher, see "iPhoto' for more details.

I was Raised in the coastal city of Bari, Italy, I've picked up my first guitar at the age of 10 and have not stopped playing music ever since.

My training as a musician has taken me all over the world starting from Italy to a Mediterranean tour, to a Cruise Liner in Brazil to Hollywood CA,. I came to Los Angeles to attend the Musician Institute (Hollywood, CA) where I've graduated with honors from the Guitar Institute of Technology, there I had the pleasure to work as a tutor during my scholars
hip program. I'm an active musician, music is my life. Often I have the pleasure to travel abroad where I give guitar clinics and perform my music, I like to think of myself as a citizen of the world. I've been teaching professionally in S. California ever since 1998, I reserve the option for in persons one-on-one lessons only for my best students, again, music matters to me. During these last 16 years I've secured many teaching positions like at the Los Angeles valley College extension program, at the Los Alamitos Conservatory of music, at Mars Music learning Center, at the YMCA etc. though, as I've already mentioned, the best one will continue on with me. I've much more to share with you regarding my professional life, my discography ect. but let's talk about lessons now.

What I care the most is to make sure that you'll receive the best private education that money can buy. As I've stated on my headline, If you're serious about music, if you're ready to learn the skills, expand your knowledge, achieve your goals, then, I'm your man. I've learned that we all have different approaches when it comes to studies. Learning how play an instrument is a fun but challenging process. I'm not gonna lie to you, you need to work on it, plain and simple !
I'll provide you with written curriculum or I'll indicate the right book to be purchased, I'll monitor your progress and I'll make sure to get the best out of you. My experience let me face any situation with the confidence that only the know-how can give you (16 years of professional experience will do that!). I have wrote curriculum aimed to the "Just as an hobby" type of student as well as comprehensive once for professional players that want to specialize on a specific style. In both cases it doesn't change what you have to do, practice ! To end with I've transcribed thousands of songs, It only takes me few minutes to put on paper your favorite song, wouldn't it be great to be able to read and play the music you love ? You'll be in good hands regardless of your goals in music

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching philosophy is to make sure that you enjoy your learning process. I'm a positive person, I believe in encouraging the student, every step you'll take toward your goal shall be acknowledge and awarded, I've been there, I know what it takes. Practice is a crucial aspect of this process, I'll motivate you, I want you be be successful in your learning journey, but, again, I need you to work on it, it won't happen otherwise.

Are you ready ?

*** Studio Equipment ***
The student has to provide his/her own instrument. A small guitar amp is provided for electric guitarist, so there is NO need to bring your own

*** Specialties ***
Music reading for guitar (Beg. to Pro.) Modern harmony (Beg. to Pro.) Improvisation (Beg. to Pro.)

Styles: Jazz, Blues, R&B-Funk, Classic Rock, Pop Rock, Latin-Spanish Styles, Brazilian, Finger-picking, Classical

Excellent instructor!

I first met Gio at Los Angeles Valley College. I enrolled in the beginning guitar class and enjoyed it so much that I formed a group class with two other classmates for a once per week group lesson with Gio. I have found him to be an excellent guitar instructor who is very patient and complimentary to the student’s strengths. I appreciate the manner in which Gio approaches teaching guitar, which is a combination of constructive criticism and challenging material. Gio provides the foundation for the student to build upon and that has given me the confidence to continue learning how to play the guitar.

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

Greetings!, Hello!, Hi!, Hey!

I've been teaching English and ESL since 2000 and taught all ages from kids to adults. Two incredible experiences were teaching in Eritrea, E. Africa and Guatemala, C. America. Not only do I enjoy making grammar and conversation accessible to all students, but my goal is to help students to become fluent and obtain the skills to have both professional and social conversations.

Most importantly, I love teaching and helping students get on their own path of "the love of learning"!
