About Glynis
Glynis has been reading music since before she knew how to read words. Her mother started teaching her piano lessons at age 3, and she started taking voice lessons at age 7. She learned from an early age to practice every day. She has taught all levels and ages of piano and voice for many years. Glynis specializes in jazz voice, but has a very strong classical and musical theatre background. She is an arranger, composer, educator, and singer. She received her AA in Professional Music from SWCC (school for music vocations), her BA in Jazz Studies: Vocal Performance at CSU Sacramento, and her Masters in Jazz Studies: Vocal Performance at the Bob Cole Conservatory at CSU Long Beach. She teaches college and high school vocal jazz ensembles as well as many private students in many areas of music.
*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching philosoph
y is to have a safe, positive, fun, and effective learning environment for all of my students. I believe it is important to be a well rounded musician, therefore I love my students to have a solid understanding of what they are doing. I strongly encourage all of my students to learn theory along with piano or voice, so they understand what they are doing. Each student is unique, therefore each student has a different lesson plan. I do expect that my students will practice during the week in order to grow, since this helps them reach their goals. I do let students pick most their own repertoire, since it is very important for them to be motivated and enjoy their assignments during the week. I can teach from early Baroque music to modern day and everything in between. Music is expression, therefore I believe it is very important for my students to love what they are working on.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are in my house with my upright Yamaha piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a keyboard, but it is necessary to have a piano or keyboard at home to pracitce on if you are a piano student.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz voice, with a strong background in classical and musical theatre. I also specialize in piano, music theory, songwriting and arranging.

She's super awesome. She completely understands musics, which comes in handy because she'll teach you some theory from time to time during a lesson. And it's a huge plus that she's really understanding and nice.

Glynis is the best teacher! As an adult student, I have unhappy memories of childhood instructors with punishing demeanors, who would give you a hard time with every mistake. Glynis is the most supportive, encouraging teacher I've ever had. I especially appreciate her rigorous background (Master's Degrees in music, a lifetime of piano and music theory) and her familiarity with the pieces I'm interested in learning (Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy, Bach, Chopin). She has introduced pieces to me that I hadn't heard before, that I now love to play. It's so nice to be able to sit at the piano and play something that actually sounds like an adult playing!

Glynis is very adept at tailoring her teaching methods to what I need on that particular day. Sometimes I haven't had a chance to practice as much as I'd like, and she is very patient, helping me based on where I am in that moment. When I do have the time to work more diligently on a piece, she listens thoughtfully, praising the good parts and offering gentle suggestions on how I could improve. She sometimes will paint visual pictures for me of how the music should sound ("make it sound like children running through a meadow"), which is silly but also useful! Glynis knows how to bring out the best in my playing, and shows genuine enthusiasm when I master something hard. My playing has dramatically improved over the past few months, and I've really enjoyed spending time with Glynis at the piano.

I'd recommend Glynis to any adult looking to improve their piano skills. She is absolutely fantastic.

I've had three lessons with Steve and I'm really impressed with his knowledge and patience. Steve and I are working on keeping me focused and having me learn how to read music. I do know how to play the guitar already I just lack certain foundational things that I believe will help my playing. I feel like I have a great guide to teach me not only how to play more efficiently but also the why behind it i.e. Music Theory.

Hello, my name's Jack & I'm a drummer/composer/sound engineer/videographer. I fell in love music & all arts since the day I was born & the day I held my first drumsticks at the age of 12 at my uncle's studio, I knew this is what I wanted to do for life.
I studied drum theory in Kalabhavan Indian Music Institute for a year & half an hold an AA degree in sound engineering from the International Media Academy in the middle east. I've been in the music & film industry every since I graduated high school.

Currently I own a production company where we specialize in composing music, filming commercials for social media & doing training videos for organizations, so when you book a lesson with me, you're not only going to learn the drums/sound engineering, but how to play with a band, for a video, for TV & movies. I will analyze your needs & g
ive you the tools to either play drums/sound engineer for fun, or be a true industry high-demand professional.
Let's Go.

If you are tired of guitar teachers who half-try through a song a week leaving you constantly learning new material but somehow never making any progress...stop. You are not doing yourself any favors. What you need is a teacher like David who actually gives a care about your playing and has the ability to break down your technique and give you an analysis of what you need to become a better player. With the benefit of David's coaching, I have made changes to my form and finger placement for the better. These are the hard changes in ingrained habits I needed to make to take my playing to the next level.

I would also encourage you to take advantage of David's expertise as an engineer if you are his student. He has recorded many bands and is very generous with his home studio for his students. The ability to record without the pressure of "being in the studio" is huge. Even if you do not currently have plans to record, the experience of playing in front of a microphone is very educational and listening to the subsequent recording is a great learning tool.

Taking lessons are pointless if both sides are not engaged. David is a rare guitar teacher who is committed to the growth of every student. If you are similarly committed to your own growth, I can't think of a better teacher for you to study the guitar with.

David is unlike any guitar teacher I have worked with. He pays close attention to details like finger placement or guitar hold and listens carefully to correct any bad habits, posture or form. Sometimes you are used to playing a certain way and don't notice some bad form or habits and he's able to diagnose sound issues. David is also great at being encouraging and suggesting ways of playing that makes sense for each song. He customizes the lesson so that you feel good about playing. He makes playing really fun and what seemed hard before, he helps to make it easy. He brings helps you feel like a rockstar after a few lessons. I highly recommend David!
