About Joe
I am currently the piano and guitar teacher at Oakwood Academy Schools of Long Beach. I have a BA in Music Education with an emphasis in voice. I've been teaching for 16 years in classroom and one-on-one settings. Other places where I have taught are: Calvary Chapel Downey School, Dexter Music Academy, the Youth Cultural Arts Foundation of Bellflower, and ABC Unified School District. I've been complimented on my ability to teach in a way that makes my students learn very quickly. I was trained in the classical and pop/rock genres. I've toured with choirs throughout China, and the United States (including Carnegie Hall), and I have also toured with rock bands in Spain, Mexico, Central America, Peru, and throughout the U.S.A.

I've worked with various vocal coaches including Maxayn Lewis (Who has worked with Celine Dion and Britney
Spears), and I am currently the lead singer (also playing guitar & piano) in the alternative rock band "Stripe Coats". In August of 2009, this band released a 5-song EP and after a month we landed a record deal with label Tate Music Group. In August 3rd of 2010, Stripe Coats released their 11-song album under the band name Kaden. This album features artists such as guitarist Michael Thompson (played for Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera), and drummer John Robinson (played for Quincy Jones, Elton John). The album also contains three songs that were recorded and produced by Producer Wyn Davis (producer of No Doubt, Sublime). Wyn Davis said, "Stripe Coats is one of the most promising new bands to come through Total Access [Studios] in a long time.  After doing records and watching young bands enter and exit the studio for over 30 years, it is STILL very exciting to work with a band that brings so much love, passion, and skill to what they do."

Stripe Coats™' songs are on rotation on Live 365 Internet Radio, and TMG Internet Radio. Our songs have also been featured on Alcoa Tennessee'™s Love 89.1 Radio and on hundreds of other radio stations, such as Refuge, CSN, and WCTL.

I divide my class into 4 parts: 1. Scales/Chords/Arpeggios/Warm-ups 2. Sight-Reading 3. Theory 4. Improvisation. Depending on the instrument of your choice, and also what your specific goals are, each of these parts are customized. You will learn quickly.

Seth is a good dude. I came across his profile with Take Lessons a month ago, after browsing through other instructors in my area and other schools in my area. He's got the experience and knowledge, so I connected with him for an initial lesson. It was a quick one to get introductions out of the way and a good idea of goals/direction. From there we further honed our plans for my instruction in an hour lesson and are directing our sights on my upcoming auditions. Seth has shown me through simple explanations of theory that his teaching style is very approachable, and additionally, was able to show me good technical skills on working my way around the horn, which is especially useful for someone like me in my twenties who already has a few bad habits (haha). Like I said, he's a good dude, good sense of humor so I feel at ease practicing with him and his knowledge is insane! Not only for saxophone but in so many other areas of music! You'd be doing yourself a favor to take at least an hour lesson from him and see how you go.

Seth and I had a great first lesson. I haven't played in a long time and he gave me helpful pointers on how to improve my embouchure. He gave me positive feedback on my rhythm and constructive feedback on my tone. We worked through some songs together. Next time I will probably ask him to play some more for me so I can hear what I need to improve for a particular song. I highly recommend him.

My teaching style is attuned, fun, encouraging and tailored entirely to meet each student's specific need. I’m enthusiastic, caring and a dedicated person.
My greatest joy is helping others find genuine fulfillment and self expression through music. I will teach individuals of all skill levels and all age groups.
There is unique voice inside you, waiting to be heard: the voice of your true identity and being. As your voice is redeemed, a spontaneous aliveness returns, awakening your heart as your journey toward your true self. By learning to listen to your voice, learning to understand, honor, accept and express its message, you begin to discover an inner freedom and to carry it into the world.

About Juliana
My name is Juliana, I m an international singer and musical theatre actress, Hollywood Music and Media Awards winner. For decades I performed in stage productions, as well as TV and International Gala such as "Millennium Promise" (producer Quincy Jones), NBC productions, big Symphony orchestras in Europe, and I had a privilege to collaborate with renown musicians from USA and Latin America.
I've been teaching private lessons since 2011 and have loved helping my students open up their talent in full potential, growing voice awareness, self-esteem and emotional response through voice, as well as performance mastery and self presentation on stage.

By enjoying the vocal performance field, I learned the vocal art as a science and a combination of physical, psychological, and creative ability of the artist. Singing has the power to bring
a lot of positive effects to people’s lives through opening their personality and engaging their well-being. This is why teaching is not just a profession to me- it’s also a mission to pass all the knowledge and experience I have to young enthusiasts and graduates.
I enjoy good and productive relationships with students of all ages and I have a friendly and supportive manner. I qualified to teach Vocal and to do so in a way that every student feels special, valued, and encouraged.
I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Juliana - outstanding professional singer and teacher, who has given my daughter and I unforgettable experience of vocal training. Her way of teaching has helped us discover are passion for singing and improving our vocals.
After just a few lessons with Juliana, my daughter was selected for one of the leading role in a musical theater company play.
Juliana is definitely our favorite teacher of all. Her beautiful personality and amazing talent helped us to understand better way to perform on stage.
I’m also an artistic director of theater- studio “Fan-fan” and Juliana has helped our actors to prepare their musical scenes. She is huge part of our success.
I can’t imagine better vocal coach for our theater!!!
Thank you Juliana!!!

I work with Juliana for over 6 months and noticed such a difference in my singing! She was able to explain all the issues with my voice and helped to change them! She also helped my band with original songs, she gave us ideas about vocals and back vocals. Everything seems so easy with her! Now I feel 100% more confident! I am so happy to find Juliana! She is the best teacher I ever had!

What an absolutely AMAZING experience! Juliana is not only a wonderful instructor, she is a true mentor whom my daughter adores. When we first signed up for lessons, it was to build my daughter's self-esteem, as she has several mandatory performances at school. What started out as a summer adventure has morphed into a regular slot for us on Juliana's calendar:)! My daughter thoroughly enjoys learning from Juliana who makes each session fun by mixing up songs, adding props, incorporating dance moves, etc. This is much more than a voice lesson -- this is a confidence-building journey. My daughter is developing life-long skills which will allow her to be successful "on stage" in life whether she continues singing or engages in public speaking. Thanks for caring about my daughter as an individual, Juliana!!

Los Angeles, CA
View Full Profile

With dozens of years experience in choral and solo singing environments, I can teach you everything from proper breathing to vocal technique, how to shape your tone, and how to get the most out of your voice!

About Alex
I have been playing music since I was 7, and now play the guitar, bass, violin, piano, and I also sing. By the time I entered the University of Southern California, I had released my first album of original music, toured the west coast with my own band, toured internationally to China, Canada, France, England, Hungary, Ukraine, and Austria, and performed with The Vienna Boys Choir among other notable musical ensembles.

Since receiving my Bachelor's degree in Guitar Performance (with a minor in Music Recording) from USC, I have released three more albums of original music, produced four albums for other artists, and have toured nationally with my own band. I currently play in three Los Angeles area bands and am the live sound engineer for another. I have taught guitar at West Coast Music Academy 18 months, and have taught private lesso
ns for the last 6 years.

With all of this experience and knowledge, I offer a student a very rich understanding of many styles of music. I can ensure that a student gets on the right track towards a bright musical future, whether they want to become a professional musician or whether they want guitar as a lifelong hobby.

*** Lesson Details ***
When you take lessons from me, you will be taking the fastest route to success: playing a lot of guitar! We will cover everything from music theory to technique to soloing to playing your favorite songs, but we won't be spending the lesson time talking. Everything you learn will be quickly put into a playable, practical context, so that you learn the most, and have the most fun!

I have high expectations for my students, and practicing every day is a requirement. But because my curriculum is personally tailored to each individual student, and involves a lot of the music that the student is most passionate about, I find my students often love to practice! I also use a variety of musical texts to enrich the students learning (including, but not limited to, Practical Theory for Guitar by Don Latarski, Effortless Mastery by Kenny Werner, the Real Book series, and various Mel Bay books).

After about 6 months, a new student will have learned most basic chords and scales, the building blocks of playing solos, and a good handful of their favorite songs! More experienced students will have enriched their understanding of guitar and how it relates to the music they love, and music that is new to them!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons will happen in a studio room at the guest house, electric/acoustic guitars, bass and amps are available, it has instruments on the wall, computer with recording equipment, free street parking. In the event that a student in allergic to cats/dogs, the lessons can occur on the backyard at a roofed area.

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar, amp, any effects if necessary. student must provide guitar (any kind)

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock, pop, folk, and jazz guitar styles. I focus on material that the individual student is excited about and wants to learn, and incorporate fundamentals and other pertinent skills necessary to maximize the students ability.

For bass guitar I specialize in rock and pop.

Contemporary songwriting technique is not genre-specific and I can teach any type of songwriting, from hip hop to country to rock. I have been a songwriter for 7 years, and have released 3 full length albums and one EP of my original material. I was also a student in the pilot classes which later became USC's Popular Music degree program. These classes focused on songwriting and were taught by industry veterans Chris Sampson and Richard Smith.

I was trained in advanced music theory as part of my degree from USC. I integrate theory into my other lessons but I can also teach theory alone.

I have advanced skills with ProTools and have extensive experience (5 years) in recording, from professional studios to personal home setups.

I just had my first composition lesson and it was extremely helpful.

We started at my music knowledge and what type of music I liked and wanted to compose. He was able to very easily assess what I needed to know and taught me a lot of theory and gave me concepts that I could learn more about once we were nearing the end of the lesson. After learning what I needed to know for what I trying to do, we discussed how I could apply it to a sample piece and how it applied to the style of music that I wanted to write, and he gave me some pointers of how to learn even more.

Overall he was extremely helpful and really nice and personable as well as professional.

Finished a lesson with Alex from TakeLessons just now and it was awesome. It was too cheap at "free" so I hope they start charging because they are worth it. At no point was I given any sales push or asked to purchase anything by the way. He listened to my problem and gave me a great solution to improve. Heartily recommended. I will take what I learned and apply it to my practice routine and playing immediately.

Thanks Alex and hope to see you soon!

About Sean
Hi, there! My name is Sean Roberts. I'm a singer/songwriter/producer and guitarist here in Orange County, CA and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1997. I specialize in beginners and intermediate players but can also help advanced players as well. I love helping my students learn their favorite songs, learning how to solo, and being able to play with other musicians without fear.

Philosophy:
I teach the language of music through guitar, bass and piano. It is up to the student to develop their own sentences through the guidance that I provide. Many students feel overwhelmed by the thought of learning to read music. My goal is to make it easy as well as fun. Your lesson will always be geared toward what YOU want to learn, and if it seems like we are working on something that doesn't match that, I will
always take the time to make clear why what we are doing will have you be able to play what you want.

My Commitment To You:
There is nothing like having private instruction. Besides enjoyment music contributes to the development of imagination, creativity, positive self concept, achievement, self discipline and positive social skills. I go out of my way to make sure that all of these criteria are met by tailoring the lessons to each students learning ability. You already have every skill you need to be a great performer, and my job is just to steer the ship in the right direction to have that happen. All I am ever doing in a lesson is making sure that we are moving you in the ultimate direction that you want to be going musically.

I'm a easy going teacher and and my teaching style is geared to the way that you learn, at your pace. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! My job is to make you better than me. I will do everything I know how to do to make sure that what I have learned that will benefit you becomes something you have mastered. If I could take the "computer chip" in my head and put it in yours, we would do that. Study with me and you will get the next best thing!

I have been teaching voice lessons for 3 years, I have a degree in Vocal Performance from New York University.

I have experience in teaching and performing a wide variety of musical genres including Broadway/Musical Theater, Pop, Jazz, Rock, and R&B/Soul. I also teach various vocal techniques, including "legit" singing for opera/theater, belt technique, and jazz technique.

The structure of my singing lesson typically consists of warm-ups and technical development for the first half, then working on song repertoire for the second half. I like to discuss the acting and emotion of a song too, because I think it's important to know what you're singing about and to be able to give a compelling performance.

I use my background in yoga to help my students find relaxation in their bodies and connect to their breath. Body-awareness is very important for singing and I also incorporate this into my lessons.

About Ionie
Have you always wanted to sing but didn't know where to start? Have a little one with a big voice that needs nurturing? Do you wish to expand your range and your repertoire?

Ionie's Voice Studio can help you find your voice! Your lessons will include the study of vocal technique and health, music theory, acting for the singer, body integration, and more!

With an extensive background in musical theater, pop, jazz, and rock, I have been performing for 20 years. I am also an accomplished songwriter, salsa dancer, and yoga teacher.

I am a kind, patient teacher with high student expectations. I provide a structured class in which students are asked to regularly learn and workshop new songs. I also am very experienced in working with children.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

What's great about Ionie is that she has Classical training and experience in Musical Theater. That really helped me because she could use her classical training to make sure I stopped singing in a way that damaged my voice and understood my goals for singing Pop and Musical Theater style songs. She was prompt, professional, nice, honest, and hardworking.

I have my own children that I teach and coach, as well as adults. I will cater to your needs as an individual, and we will take this journey together!

About Judi
Hi everyone! I've been teaching in a variety of areas for many years in many different respects. I teach voice lessons, and audition coaching. I've been doing that for a long time! During my "day-job" years, I was an analyst, and I'm especially skilled with Microsoft Excel. And I LOVE teaching people how to make magic on that program. I have done projects that included creating databases, training departments on the use of said databases, taught entire departments at Jet Propulsion Laboratory how to migrate to Microsoft Outlook from (the archaic) Eudora.

My musical talents run parallel with my affinity for numbers. In my life, it has manifested in music composition, arranging, and musical direction. And, of course, PERFORMANCE! I've performed in and around the Los Angeles area for many years. I own a professional Christmas Caroling co
mpany that I direct and sing in as well. So I'm a performer, and a small business owner! So come see what I can offer!

*Gasp*

Where do I begin?...

I am a musician of 15 years – with a background in composition, vocal performance, piano technic, percussion, production, etc. I have worked with several different vocal instructors throughout my lifetime. I have been a solo artist for 2 years at Pledge Empire Records while studying at McNally Smith College of Music for 2+ years before moving to Los Angeles, CA.

To say the least,
the day I started working with Deanna is the day I became a REAL musician.

Looking back at my previous experiences as a musician, pianist and especially a vocalist; I am disappointed that I didn't know Deanna sooner!

I've taken lessons from so many teachers over the years but Deanna was the only one that worked for me. She will tell you the truth, she will motivate you and guide you through it all. Being a performer for years, I have always struggled understanding my voice. Deanna explained the technicalities to me so I could understand what I was doing wrong.
She is simply wonderful! I can’t emphasize enough on how much she has helped me develop my skills in singing and as a musician. She’s not only a great teacher, but she is incredibly knowledgeable, talented and humble given the incredible accomplishments she has achieved in the past! Given her experiences, she does so much more than teach you vocal lessons; she shows interest in the type of musician YOU want to become so she can help you reach your own personal goals as an artist. I have never had a teacher (vocal, piano, percussion, etc.) that has ever executed that type of behavior. That alone makes her different from the rest.

What I love (and I mean LOVE) the most about Deanna is that she really listens. She can hear problems so well that her corrections help you get better quickly but also make it very clear for you. She is the most gifted vocal coach I have every had the pleasure working with. I have never met anyone who blends expertise, sensitivity, instinct, and compassion into her students as well as Deanna. It is safe to say, without a teacher like Deanna – I would’ve probably given up my singer career and headed back to my hometown in Minnesota.

Deanna is much more than a vocal teacher… She has been a motivation to me as a musician, such an amazing mentor and I am incredibly proud to say that I have a fantastic relationship with her.

She is flat out, the best vocal coach I’ve ever worked with!

Thank you for everything, Deanna!!

I have been working with Deanna for four weeks now. It took only 1 day to realize just how much of a positive impact she was going to make on not only my voice but also myself as a person. She is so motivational and makes me want to constantly keep pushing to get better. Unfortunately due to having two jobs my schedule will no longer allow me to have any more classes right now with her but once I get the chance I will be going right back to Deanna. So glad that I have had the chance to work with such a humble, considerate, and passionate artist like herself.
