About Greg
I started playing guitar in the 5th grade and in middle school began playing in rock groups. At the beginning of high school, I started teaching in some of the local music stores in the area. While wanting more from my playing, I started classical guitar lessons with an Andre Segovia student, Rani Cochran, and soon started lessons from Warren Nunes, a top jazz guitarist in the Bay Area. While continuing to take lessons in both types of music, I majored in Music at the local college. There I played in the jazz band and in guitar ensembles. After receiving my A.A. degree, I took classical guitar lessons with Larry Ferrara at the Conservatory of Music in San Francisco. At this point I transferred to San Jose State University and received a B.A. in guitar performance and a B.A. in Psychology, graduating with honors. My latest performing exp
erience has been playing in the worship band at my church for the past several years. I enjoy teaching guitar and sharing what I’ve learned over the years of playing. We all never stop being students and learning new things on our instrument.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are provided in a comfortable, fun environment and are private and on a weekly basis. Initially the student will complete a questionnaire before the first lesson to allow me to better understand what experiences the student has had with the guitar and with music in general. Additionally, I try to find out what groups and guitarists he or she likes. Finally, discuss what goals the student has or put another way, what he or she wants to do with the guitar. When we have completed the first lesson, I will better understand what the student’s playing level is and be able to provide a lesson plan based on that level and current experience. The lessons are tailored to each student’s capability and desire to play/practice. The lessons will be challenging but not “out of reach”. The student will feel successful and see the difference in playing within a relatively short time.

I will assess the student’s progress each week, by reviewing the previous week’s work. Based on the student’s progress, I will advance to new material or stay within the same material. The student and I will agree on how much time the student will devote to practicing each week. The student will keep a three ring notebook for adding handouts as they are given. I usually use a guitar book, to have structure, along with supplementary material that fills in the gaps. It is vital to practice on a regular basis in order to improve.
I provide teaching with patience and motivation. Being a parent of a child with ADHD (I homeschooled for one year), I incorporate learning from my parental experiences into lessons as needed. There have been several studies done that show how early music lessons have longtime benefits.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio lessons are taught in a music room upstairs with large windows facing the street with guitars, amps, a computer, stereo and seating. The house has 3 cats which are kept separate from lessons. Street parking and/or driveway if needed.

*** Specialties ***
I've taught rock, blues, jazz, classical, contemporary Christian, and music theory. I try to get my students to play along with CD's and listen to others playing what they want to learn. I draw material from the hundreds of books I have collected over the years.

He's my first teacher - I have never learned singing elsewhere before. He says I learn fast, but the truth is that he knows how to give the best exercises and advice to make the student realise one's full potential. Practising while following the advice he pointed out during the lesson, I suddenly found myself near 3-octave range within the first couple of lessons, and now we are working on rounding the tone and make it into a beautiful singing voice. On top of it, he's also very funny and approachable.

About Ryan
I am a local piano teacher in the Brookside area who is looking to accept new students! I have been teaching piano for almost a year and I am confident in my ability to inspire the next generation of musicians. Teaching piano is one of my great passions. I have worked extensively with all different kinds of students ranging from beginners to early intermediate levels of all ages. I also have experience working with students with autism.

I am currently studying Piano Performance as a Bachelor of Music student at Sacramento State. I will be obtaining my degree by January of 2017. I've learned from the most talented and supportive piano faculty in the region. It's exciting to instill what I've learned to those who want to learn.

In my lessons, you go the pace of your learning. After all, they're private lessons and not a class. I try t
o engage a fun interaction between the students; I feel that productivity is at it's best when you have someone fun to work with. However, there are expectations to be met and learning piano takes patience and daily practice. I ensure that each student strives to get better because that is what these lessons are for. You can't expect to get better without practicing. Practice makes a better perfect :).

Since I am a member of Music Teacher's Association of California, I will be offering the Certificate of Merit to students who are ideal candidates for this program. This program is designed for individuals who have excelled in their instrument and understanding of music theory. This program is a great way for students to have a concrete goal to work towards. Students who have excelled in their evaluation may be able to participate in annual MTAC convention recitals. Here is the website for more information: http://www.mtac.org.

Please note we have a friendly cat, but he is put away during piano lessons. His dander is everywhere. Literally everywhere. But he is the cutest thing ever, I'm told.

Please message me if you are interested or have any questions.

About Kyle
Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay with me a long time because I am very flexible in my teaching and know how to interact with many personalities and learning styles, producing great results and progress. My specialties are piano, woodwinds, and music technology (i.e. recording and production). You can find more information about me and what I do at caseymusicservice﮳com.

Kyle has given me contra bass, aka upright bass,weekly lessons from August 2015 through May 2016. I have never played a string instrument prior to this, although I do play piano and have played the flute, bagpipes, and piccolo over the years. I did not need education in reading music.

Kyle was able to take me from sounding like a lower octave version of Jack Benny (a mid-20th century comedian famous for his howlingly horrid violin playing) to a level where I know how to hold the instrument and the bow, the fingerings, bowing technique, and how to get a very respectable sound from the instrument.

He also installed the strings when I received the new instrument, found a manufacturing flaw in the bridge height that the manufacturer subsequently paid to repair, and diagnosed a resonance issue with the instrument that was corrected with a balance weight on the string below the bridge.

About Isaac
I am Berklee College of Music graduate that studied Contemporary Writing & Production - a skill set that has led me to both play/record and write music for the drums, a variety of percussion, piano, guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, trombone, euphonium, and voice. I currently live in Brooklyn, NY as a professional freelance composer and an active performer with my band.

Having had the opportunity to teach students of a wide range of ages (4-50 y/o), I've seen that everyone learns differently and at their own pace. My goal for each lesson is to hone in on the student's interests and base lesson material off of the music that they want to learn - be it classical, rock, or even video game music! I want there to be application for every thing taught in my lesson, and for the student to be able to relate one musical concept to another.

I
want all of my students to be able to have the feeling of playing music with another person, and at some point in my lessons I like to jam with my students! It's essential that my students understand that what they're learning, be it a song, or a scale, or and idea in music theory will have some sort of application involving another musician. This sort of communication is what keeps music fascinating to me!

I am available to teach any of the instruments mentioned as well as any music theory, writing, or production lessons as well. I hope I can help you meet your musical goals!

Isaac really catered to my needs in our one on one lessons. I went from barely knowing how to hold my sticks, to having a firm grasp on the difference between matched and traditional grip. His command of styles is astounding! Regardless of the genre, Isaac always had a firm grasp on what to play. We leaned jazz songs, rock songs, and blues primarily, but when I looked up his band Oh Malo, I was surprised to see him playing very fluently in an experimental/avant-garde setting!

Isaac always broke down material in an intuitive manner, and found a way to incorporate the fundamentals into whatever material we were working on. I highly recommend him as a teacher!

Isaac is my favorite producer! He has taught me so much about audio engineering and arranging. This past year Isaac produced and arranged my band Visen's debut album. He also wrote the interlude for our record. I couldn't be happier with the work he put into the album. However, beyond being an incredible producer and composer, Isaac is an amazing teacher. He is as patient as he is knowledgable, and he taught me how to concisely record and mix my own vocals.

He is extremely musical
