About Jordan
I am a professional singer and actor with over 10 years of performance experience and private vocal/acting coaching. I studied acting at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and have performed nationally in regional theater, for cruise lines, and several theaters in my current residence of San Diego such as the Lyric Opera San Diego, Old Globe, Lamb's Players Theater and Cygnet Theater. I have taught students from ages 7-adults, and my focus is always the dramatic and emotional aspects of the piece and how to use technique to release that emotion in a healthy and exciting way.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is passionate and encouraging. I have taken lessons from many teachers and have found what is useful and what only confuses a student. As such, my approach to singing is very simplistic, and often wh
at I will talk about in the first lesson will be discussed during every lesson. Lessons will usually be divided into 1/2 vocal mechanics and 1/2 dramatic interpretation.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music and acting texts, portable keyboard. Student need not provide anything.

*** Specialties ***
Broadway, voice/speech, classical theater, acting, stage combat

About Judy
I started taking music lessons at the age of 9. It began playing in the church and then I taught lessons in my home at the age of 16. I went on to attend and graduate from Christian Heritage College (now called San Diego Christian College) with a Bachelors Degree in Music and Business. I am now the Director of the Music Department at San Diego Young Artists Music Academy. I direct two youth and children choirs, a male chorus and a great adult choir. I also sing with the Voices of Prayze who travel with Jason Mraz from time to time. As a singer, pianist and as a teacher, I specialize in Gospel piano & vocal technique and repertoire. I also have a great deal of experience in Pop, R&B, and Classical so I am able to help students excel in these genres as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
As your private teacher, I can promise you a very soulful a
nd rewarding experience – having fun is part of my lesson plan. My goal for each student is to build confidence through knowledge and experience. I will encourage each student to reach into their spirit and bring out what is already inside of them through the type of music that brings them happiness. After 3- 6 months of lessons from me pianist will be able to know beginning concepts, play songs of their choice by ear and note read simple songs also. Singers will know beginning vocal exercises, be able to project their voice, and sing high and low notes accurately to songs according to their ability.

About Joan
I started piano lessons when I was about 6 years old. I graduated from the University of Arizona in Tucson with a BA in Music Education. After moving to San Diego, I spent the next 20 years or so being a wife and mom and raising 3 kids, one of them a special needs child due to a drowning accident. I've been a church pianist and choir director for almost 30 years and worked at a charter school in Lakeside as a choir teacher and Music History class teacher. I started teaching piano about 10 years ago on the recommendation of a friend and fell in love with it! I have taught kids from the ages of 6 to 16, but would welcome adult students.
I enjoy and can teach many different musical styles on the piano. If you like classical, we can do classical. If you like pop or Broadway, we can do pop or Broadway. If you like contemporary Christi
an, we can do that. I'm a good sight reader and can help students who are interested learn how. I can also teach improvisation using chords with or without a melody line for students who'd like to learn. I encourage older students to bring in music they are interested in learning. The sky's the limit!

*** Lesson Details ***
I think lessons should be made fun for the student and should be personal time just for them to participate in an activity that they enjoy doing. Parents are always welcome during lessons. With beginners I stress learning to read the notes and other musical notation-dynamics markings, tempo instructions, rests, etc.. I like to use the Dozen A Day exercises as well and, depending on the proficiency level of the student, the Hanon series of exercises for flexibility. I like to use the Alfred Method lesson books for those just getting started. They have good pictures and easy to understand instructions for younger students. They also offer simple Theory instruction books as well. They also have some good adult instruction books. I also like to use a reward system with my students; younger kids can choose from a simple prize box and older ones can receive gift cards from McDonald's, Dairy Queen, etc.. Everyone needs a little reward in life! I like all students to keep a practice log (younger ones can be helped in this by parents) to help with accountability and to see how progress is being made. I also like to have a student recital at the end of the school year, usually in the month of May. The purpose is so that students can meet each other and see what others are working on. I've found that the students themselves are often the best encouragers and inspiration for each other!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ piano and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
Can teach classical, romantic and pop music genres. Can show how to improvise and play from chord sheets with no written music. Fast and efficient in sight-reading.

About Dilys
Ms Dilys has been teaching since 2001. She has taught children and adult of all experience levels. Her goal is to help students to make their musical experience in a fun and fulfilling way by implementing games and other teaching tools.
Ms Dilys received the performance diploma from Associated Board of Royal School of Music. She is a national certified piano teacher from Music Teachers National Association.

*** Lesson Details ***
For young beginners, I use a lot of listening and singing games to increase their interest in learning music. They will be able to read music notes after 3 months and be able to play some short pieces By using the right method, it becomes easy in reading notes.

I hold recitals once to twice per year which give important experiences for our children. For advanced students, i encourage them to take cert
ificate examination and to participate in other competitions

I believe we are striving for the same goal --- make this music learning experience FUN and FULFILLING

*** Travel Equipment ***
All games tools are provided by myself. I expect my student have their own books

About Masashi Alex
I've been teaching/tutoring music since 2007 with experience teaching music theory, aural skills, piano, and guitar. I can help students with a variety of musical tasks. The program I was enrolled in at SDSU ensured that I had a good grasp of a wide variety of instruments.

*** Lesson Details ***
Piano students can expect to be started with Faber Piano Adventures. Guitar students may get Alfred's Guitar Course or a book on classical guitar depending on the maturity/level of the student.

After a few months, beginning students should expect to have gained a firm grasp of the basics of understanding music notation and should be able to play at least basic pieces.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room f/w keyboard seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to have their own instruments, especially piano, and
amplifiers and cables if applicable. If I am teaching recording then they should have their own workstation with computer, interface, and either monitors or 2 sets of headphones. I expect students to have their own copies of any relevant books/materials as instructed.

I will bring my own writing materials and guitar if necessary.

*** Specialties ***
Piano - classical and rock/pop.
Guitar - rock/pop, classical, and jazz. I prefer to start students with classical when possible as a means of getting hands to start finger-picking early.

About Chance
I have a lifelong passion for music, and specifically, trumpet. I am grateful for the opportunity I had as a young musician to study under high caliber professionals. I have studied under dozens of symphony musicians and Hollywood free-lance professionals. I have been a part of many prestigious music programs, both competitive, and scholastic. I attended Brigham Young University of Hawaii, where I was granted a scholarship to major in music performance. I have had students in the past, but am new to thumbtack. I look forward to finding students interested in entering the world of music, specifically the trumpet.

To me, any musical involvement is always a joy. I grew up with a passion for music. In the 5th grade, I switched from the violin, to the trumpet. As soon as I heard the voice of the trumpet, I instantly fell in love. The voice of
the trumpet resonates with my heart. The trumpet is such a beautiful instrument. Unlike many instruments, the trumpet holds a unique ability to be versatile. A trumpet can be soothing, like a mothers singing to her baby, or it can be as powerful as the thunderous roar of a lion. The trumpet is used in ALL genres of music, whereas others are limited to particular genres.
