Marcus is a great player and good listener on my questions. It's joy to collaborate with Marcus on projects.
Diana R.
I am so thankful to have found Marcus as my bass instructor; he is the exact type of teacher I was looking for. His training and love for music were evident upon first meeting him. I have learned so much in the short time I have been taking lessons. He is a very patient and passionate teacher.

All around wonderful teacher

Marcus is quite the gifted teacher. By far the best I've had the pleasure to aspire under. He is very easy to understand, and doesn't overwhelm you, taking time on the little things (the most important). He creates an atmosphere that is encouraging to learn in. We all know those teachers that create a stressful environment that inhibits progressive learning, as well as frustration in yourself. Marcus is certainly the opposite. He is also quite easy to communicate with--Creating lesson plans, setting goals, etc... In summation, a professional and a friend I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood (originally called GIT), a renowned music school especially for the guitar. I have had taken guitar lessons and also taught students of different ages for nearly 5 years before I attended MI.

I received an honors degree of Guitar Performance and Audio Engineering and have been on the Dean's List every quarter.

I will combine my teaching experience and what I have learned and summarized from my learning, in order to give you comprehensive, in-depth, straightforward, and easily applicable lessons from beginner to advanced.

When I was teaching back then, I sometimes focused on one thing at a time and didn't realized how important to combine all things together it is until I went to MI. I will cover all the following sections throughout my lessons, so that you will become more of a musician, instead of a, for lack of a better word, guitarist:

Technique
Music Theory
Performance
Improvisation

With over 4 years of teaching experience, 6 years of gigging and playing the guitar for 14 years, I have cultivated a unique approach to teaching the guitar. I take the time to listen to my students, hear their struggles and dreams and create a lesson plan that is truly individual. I've worked with beginners who've never touched a guitar to professionals looking to broaden their horizons, all ages too! I am a very professional, motivated and flexible teacher looking to help you learn the guitar!

Jason vocally coached me during many studio sessions over the years. Not only is he an excellent musician in diverse genres, but he is patient, attentive, and communicates clearly. He knows how to give the right amount of support to help vocalists find their very best sound and style for a particular genre. I would recommend Jason for any singer looking to generally improve their voice, prepare for an audition, recording, or performance.

Experienced young guitarist that is good with students of all ages. I have been playing for over 10 years with experience as a teacher and a gigging musician on the road playing across many genres of music. I am currently a students at the California Jazz Conservatory and am going into my senior year. For all my students, I believe the best way to learn is through music and having fun.

They can expect to learn how to read standard music notation from classical, baroque, to modern day music. They will also learn chords.

About Holly

I have been playing piano for 15 years, and taught two students while I was still in high school. I took a break from teaching for a few years, but recently started teaching again, while finishing up college. I am introverted, but I bond well with kids and will treat them well. I also offer flute,

Jeff
As I am an older adult piano student with many years of experience playing organ and digital keyboard, including publicly and for hire, I was uncertain which way to go when I decided to add piano (and ultimately jazz piano) to my repertoire. After considering a number of options (online teaching programs, books, YouTube videos, and various instructors), I decided to employ Holly's vast musical expertise. I was impressed that she had a proposed lesson plan right off the bat, and she convinced me that starting with classical music may be the way to morph my way into jazz piano. I knew as a fact that many jazz musicians had their start that way. Holly has been very patient with my learning the whole new way of playing that a piano entails (no more relying on the built-in bells and whistles of an arranger keyboard). I would recommend Holly for adult students as well as children. She knows her stuff. And if she gets mad if I don't play something right the first time, she sure doesn't show it (mainly because she DOESN'T get mad at all). But my biggest recommendation comes that she is darn passionate about what she does.
Leroy
Holly is an incredible pianist and teacher. Always patient and understanding. She always has the answer to questions I have and can explain it clearly. I would recommend Holly to anyone looking to learn piano the correct way.

"Jimmy has a very in-depth approach to teach music, starting from the fundamentals and building on top of them. I've been studying acoustic guitar and mainly music theory with Jimmy for the past 3 months with no prior music knowledge, and I believe I already learned a huge amount about music.

I prefer taking the 1 hour lessons each week, since it provides enough time to think about the material being taught and to ask meaningful questions. I believe Jimmy's objective is to get the student to think about music critically, not just to memorize information.

I fully enjoy the lessons and think they are worth the effort and time!"
