About Ken
I've been playing music my whole life, but it was as a high school student when I was asked to teach the school's guitar class that I became a teacher. Since that time I've gone on to earn several awards, played in many different types of projects, and earned a Master's degree. You might have heard my music before too if you've ever listened to a podcast, TV commercials, Indy films, or played any video games. My most successful student thus far however, would have to be Jacob Tilley from the rock band Young the Giant.

Not everybody wants to be a rock star though, and there are many aspects to the world of music. During the course of my musical adventure I've played with orchestras, been in rock, bluegrass, reggae, pop and blues bands, classical ensembles and more. I have also had the opportunity to play for celebrities and diploma
ts. Basically I've done a little of everything and I believe that it is this diversity of experiences that makes me a better teacher. Having worked in so many settings gives me a broad understanding that I use to help you reach whatever goals you might have.

I have also become adept at writing, recording and producing music, studying under Frank Wright of the legendary rock band Chicago. If you have an interest in creating and/or recording music I can definitely help you get there! Check out my chill/downtempo instrumental album 'Night Music'.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach you about playing several different instruments, how to write, how to record your own music, and how to get your music career off the ground! As a youth, I was largely self-taught so my inspiration was always to have fun. I never had to deal with the 'homework' style of practicing so I've naturally incorporated that approach to my lessons. My goal is to keep you (the student) inspired and having fun. When that happens you will become good at your instrument and feel as though you 'played' your way to success! As your teacher I will also provide almost all of the materials for free and show you great free apps to help you along with your learning and keep costs to a minimum! I know we will have fun together while you learn and I look forward to meeting you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars, piano/keyboard, drums, bass, banjo, mandolin, ukulele and a ProTools recording studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide the learning materials but I expect the student to have their own instrument, be that a guitar, drum set, etc.

*** Specialties ***
Commercial music is definitely my specialty, but I am also capable of doing various styles such as classical, bluegrass, traditional/folk. Just focus on what you want to learn and I can teach it to you.

I am currently once again performing in multiple groups in the San Diego area.

There are musicians who teach on the side, but Calvin is not only a talented musician, but has a real talent for teaching as well. He tailor-made the lessons towards the skills I wanted to develop. He knows how to direct the student to just the right practice method to improve on a particular skill. Calvin is patient, positive, and encouraging, and takes the time to explain anything the student does not understand. Overall, Calvin is a great music teacher who truly cares about his students learning their instrument. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Calvin to anyone.

Im not an avid "yelper" or things like that, but I do look for quality. Being a teacher myself, I value a teacher with professional knowledge/experience and a clear gift and passion for what they teach. Lance is all that and more! You won't be disappointed, I have already heard results in my voice. Thumbs up.

Lance is an amazing vocal teacher. He is passionate about his craft and extremely talented in music, both vocally and instrumentally. He brings a fresh, yet technically skilled style of teaching that my daughter looks forward to each week. She had her first performance recently and got rave reviews. We highly recommend Lance to anyone looking for vocal lessons. He also has an ease about him that makes him easy to work with. In our opinion, "The best."

About Tanner
Like many musicians, Tanner began creating and producing original music as a young teenager. He began learning AVID Pro Tools, the industry-standard recording software while attending numerous Grammy Camps and is now considered an expert with the program. He developed an extensive knowledge of audio engineering principles and techniques through his formal education at the Los Angeles Recording School, other specialized training, and his own experimentation and professional experience.

Technical knowledge is just a small part of a sound engineer’s job. Tanner has a thorough understanding of how to capture all types of musical styles, genres, instruments, and vocals. But most importantly, Tanner loves the ebb and flow of collaboration with artists and producers to help them realize their creative goals.

Whether you’re a singer/songwri
ter who wants to record a song or an album, or you’re in a band in need of a mixing or mastering engineer, Tanner’s the man for the job!

I started Djing about two years ago and have loved it ever since. About one year ago or less I decided I wanted to take up music production as well, but I realized I didn't know much about mixing and mastering. Recently, I decided to try out an hour session over facetime with Tanner to learn more about what it takes to perfectly mix and master and track, and just from the first lesson I have already learned so much more about what makes a track sound amazing. He even sent me a follow up email after our session with notes on our session as well as a few other helpful links he suggested i take a look at. All in all, great hour, affordable, definitely making our appoints a regular thing.

Hello! My name is Madison, but I go my Madi. I love the piano and the beauty and creativity it allows as you learn more about it. It may seem intimidating at first, but it will soon become your best friend. As you come to learn your favorite songs on the instrument, a fire you didn't know you have, will ignite inside you, and I would love to be that person to watch it grow.

I am so impressed with Madi as a piano instructor for a simple reason-- she has both a real love and natural talent for music AND she knows her technical stuff-- music theory and how to teach different ages. Too many teachers are either/or that way so I really connected with how she balances both the artistic and music loving aspects with solid technique on the piano. I definitely would recommend her as a piano instructor.
