I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

I am a graduate of Azusa Pacific University with a Bachelors Degree in Vocal Performance and Music Education. For the past fourteen years I have been the Music and Vocal Director for 90 Broadway Musical Productions. These are some of the companies that I have been a part of; Orange County Children's Theatre in Huntington Beach. Arts and Learning Conservatory in Newport Beach. Music Theatre of Orange County. Stage light Productions in La Habra. For the past two years I have been teaching Piano, Voice, Ukulele to over 50 students at McCormick Music Lessons in Newport Beach. I have taught piano and voice for 45 students at Virtuosos Russian Music Academy in Fountain Valley. I am the the contemporary worship leader and the accompanist for Our Saviors Lutheran Church in San Clementi. I have had over 100 private students. I have been the tenor soloist for the Oratorio Choir and Orchestra at the University of Northern Iowa. Performed in thirteen countries as a professional singer. I performed in 49 states in the USA for 18 years. I have recorded 10 CDs. *** Lesson Details *** Hi my name is Art O. and I want to see you succeed in music. I love teaching students that are excited about learning their instrument. If you are interested in voice lessons, you will learn how to expand your range, perform on stage, and how to take care of your voice. If you are taking piano or ukulele lessons, you will learn how to read notes, learn basic music theory, and learn how to read chord charts. You will advance quickly and I expect to see you performing in less than six months. If you work hard and apply yourself to practice, there is no end to what you can accomplish! *** Travel Equipment *** Music for singing, ukulele and piano.
