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.

Mariia is professional, punctual, and a good piano teacher. My daughter is learning so much, so fast! I've talked to other moms of similarly aged children, and their kids took much longer to be able to play with two hands. I attribute this to Mariia's teaching skills. Thanks Mariia!

About Chris
I have over ten years of experience teaching College Algebra, English Composition, Business classes, and more. I have helped administer after school tutoring program in St. Louis. I have had success in helping students with whom others were unable to achieve improvement. I get excited when I see students learn to love learning (especially math).

I began attending college when I was 15 years. I scored high enough on my ACT/SAT exams (97th percentile) to earn a full tuition scholarship. I graduated from college with a 3.98 GPA. I also have two children who are full of energy. I know how to sustain the attention of young minds.

About Elena
My name is Elena. I am very pleased to welcome you to my French lessons! I have been teaching French for all age groups (beginning from 3 years old kids to the adult advanced level) for more than 20 years and I am really happy to provide my students with the experience and skills I have acquired for all the years.
I have worked with the kids of all the age groups creating cooperative learning, hands-on and minds-on approach. I also participated in "Write-to-Read" program in California and used these methods to encourage reading/writing at home, parent involvement, and listening/speaking/writing skills. I always try to create an individual approach to every child to develop his/her unique language skills and personal perception.
I am a professionally credentialed and certified teacher from California state and I am happy to share my exp
erience and my love for French with all students and their families.

Sincerely,

Elena

One of my most favorite experiences is conveying knowledge to students. I obtain the sense of achievement from their excitement of understanding a new concept. I've learned unique and proven teaching methods that I apply to all of the students I tutor. I am extremely qualified as a tutor, having years of experience tutoring in both formal and informal settings, and graduating both high school and college at the very top of my class.I strongly believe in learning by doing and teaching not just the facts but developing a way of thinking.

About Rose
Hello! My name is Rose. When I was a teenage backpacker, I began teaching English to friends I made in different countries who are still my friends today. After over 7 years of traveling, teaching and experimenting with different methods and learner types, I found that the uniting quality in effective lessons is that they build confidence through fun, motivation and the exploration of new worlds that language opens up.

Learning a new language literally increases the size of your brain. When I was learning, I discovered a new part of myself and became a fuller person. Learning new languages has helped me find the courage to do many more things. Its helped me try acting, creative writing and eventually I gained the confidence to direct the scripts that I wrote. The friendships I gained also happened because I put in effort to know the lan
guage. My reality is totally different inside and out and I'm really glad for it!

I've tried all sorts of methods and have dissected military courses for language acquisition as well a experimental approaches. I have around 8 different approaches that I take for learners of a specific type and need. Everyone is an individual, so I customize lessons for each person's needs and interests.

Rose is a unique tutor with an amazing educational background. Rose didn't give me only grammar and vocabulary but also the cultural contexts. We dealt with a long list of topics that were challenging and interesting. More importantly she has this bubbly engaging personality that keeps lessons fun and always learning something new keeps me motivated. Thanks Rose
