I am a professional musician teaching and performing regularly in the Los Angeles area. While studying at CSUN I took an advanced level ear training class taught by the aural skills master Gary Pratt, and received an A+. I have since been mastering my own aural skills and would love to share my knowledge with anyone interested in improving their ears!

Jordan has been a great teacher! I couldn't have asked for someone more patient and gracious. No matter what my challenges were with learning how to play the Saxaphone, Jordan never made me feel like I couldn't overcome the challenges. I will have to put my lessons on hold for now until further notice as it is not feesible at this point and time. Thank you Jordan!!

As an award-winning singer-songwriter, I have been teaching singing for six years. My teaching focuses on finding your own unique voice. In first few lessons, you will learn how to access each of your different resonators (and what they are!), how to properly use the 360-degree breathing method, and how to access your most grounded self in order to clearly define your goals. Through this self-discovery process and use of proper technique, your expression through singing will come to life!

As a composer of new music, it is essential to support the local community of musicians through lessons which support individual interests and patiently encourage progress at every level. I teach all ages and can work with any level of skill in terms of instrument ability, music theory, or music engraving. If you sing, play an instrument, or are interested in the manipulation of sound: composition lessons are for you!

In a typical lesson we will begin to develop a new project or analyze a work in progress. Students can expect composition games and exercises with pen and paper for each lesson. If you have Engraving/DAW software like Finale, Sibelius, Ableton, or Logic we will utilize that for games and projects. Helping each student develop their compositional style while increasing their knowledge of music theory, improvisation, and engraving skills are my main goals.

Whether you would like to increase your music theory knowledge, learn how to write music, arrange a

Ive really enjoyed my experiences with Josh. He is well versed in all styles of composition and specializes in more modern avant-garde styles. Our lessons in modern counterpoint have really improved my harmonizations skills and expanded what I thought was capable for chords in a band setting.(i.e. jazz big band, concert band, orchestra, etc.)
Kaitlynn
Josh R. is extremely helpful and intuitive. He was extremely helpful during my time with him. He is hard working, dependable and creative. I would definitely recommend him!
