Music has been my passion since I was 10 years old. I didn't have any real instruments at first, so, I built my own out of coffee cans, ice cream containers and of course: a rubber band shoebox guitar! It might sound funny, but, I believe these early days of trying to create music using my "homemade symphony," forced me to really get to the core of sound and expression without the pre-set curriculum of traditional music study. Early on, I learned a few fundamental concepts of music theory that would forever change how I learned, as well as how I taught music to others. I believe these concepts set a foundation that allowed me to understand music and grow much faster - including learning multiple instruments.

And yes, I eventually acquired a real guitar and went on to study music and computers at the University of California and I currently compose music for TV and film in my own studio. I have taught guitar, bass, piano, drums, theory, composition and recording production to ...

I will work with you to generate and develop your musical ideas, and to be able to notate them accurately in traditional notation for yourself and others to read. Depending on your level of experience, we will study music theory, harmony, music history, and notation. My specialty is stringed instruments, since I've played the violin since 1973, but I can coach you to write for any instrument. I use Sibelius notation program and I can coach you in using Sibelius or in the free program MuseScore.

Gloria has been a wonderful and inspiring teacher over a period of very formative years for me as a violinist. We first worked together for all 4 years of my undergraduate violin performance degree at Mills College from 2010-14, and Gloria helped me develop a lasting appreciation for listening deeply and developing focus for small details. We worked together on everything from solo Bach and Hindemith sonatas to concertos, chamber music, and orchestral excerpts. She has been a lasting influence in my life as a musician, and I will continue to return for musical and creative advice over the years even when I live far away.

I have spent the last 5 years developing a 10 step program that all of my students work through when they begin with me! During that time, I was also a part of a performing arts group where I had the opportunity to teach, perform and travel all over the world to countries like Germany, Poland, and Japan. I have worked with students of all ages and skill levels to develop their technique. My goal as an instructor is to help you to become the most prepared artist, no matter where you are. During your time with me, we will address topics like: vocal health, audition technique, rehearsal technique and etiquette, the proper way to approach new music and music styles, and more! Once you have completed the initial ten step program, the lessons are then tailored around you and the advancement of your skills so you can take your career as an artist to the next level.

"Richard was willing to introduce my 4 year old granddaughter to the instrument and he helped her with the most basic aspects of playing - how to hold it (he adjusted the strap to fit her properly) how to strum and how to use her left hand on the frets, etc. He was clear, concise, encouraging and patient!"

"I've just completed my first 5 lessons with Matt and have already signed up for more. I've been progressing quickly, and am impressed with Matt's knowledge. When I began, I had expressed interest in a particular genre of music. After showing me basic techniques, he focused on techniques that are used heavily in my genre. Matt teaches theory as well as technique. His explanations of scales and the layout of notes on the fretboard has really improved my sense of how chords and riffs are constructed."

"Adina is a gem. She has a magical Disney princess voice and the soul of a wise, experienced teacher. I am the Director of Music, pianist and organist at our church. Adina has been cantoring at least one mass weekly for a few years now. She is a quick study and very easy to work with. She also cantors most of our funerals and weddings. She has worked wonders one-on-one with many of our young cantors. It seems she knows exactly 'what' to say and 'when' to get the best from our young singers. I always hear immediate improvement after she works with them, even for a short time. One of our parishioners is even sponsoring a young cantor so she can take voice lessons with Adina."

I am an adult student and have taken lessons in the past and am starting again. I have enjoyed the personal and attentive instruction given. Susan sits right by the piano and watches every movement. Teachers I have had in the past have not done this. She provides supplemental material that I need. She is always very friendly, kind, patient and has a great deal of professional knowledge.

"Excellent teacher for students of all ages and experience

Robert has been assisting me with my bass guitar and acoustic guitar education. He has expertly weaved music theory into my lessons and has given me a huge boost to my musical confidence. I used to think some things would be too difficult and perhaps insurmountable but with his encouragement I feel a lot more confident. I have been helped because his lessons have been tailored to my needs and weaknesses. Robert is a very friendly music teacher who would be able to assist anyone of any age. I cannot recommend him enough."
