I'€ve always had a love for music. When I was 8 years old, I taught myself how to read music before my first piano lesson because I was so excited to learn. I continued taking piano lessons throughout my school days and became involved in choir in high school. When I began college I decided

I began playing acoustic guitar at the age of ten and have studied both classical and jazz guitar at the undergraduate and masters level.

I offer a basic intro to acoustic guitar as well as more advanced studies. We begin with technique, open position chords, and scales. As you advance, we will work on more advanced techniques such as finger-picking, accompanying while singing, and improvising.

Steven (Chip) Lewis
I am a new student -- and have never learned to play an instrument. I was encouraged by medical providers to learn an instrument as part of certain of my cognitive therapies. My instrument (the mandolin) was a gift from my son.
I have been fortunate to work with Sean O. G. Burns over the past few months. His style is perfect for my needs. He is patient, and leads with a gentle push -- no pressure! Sean is incredibly talented in his own right musically, and has talents - I'm sure, well beyond my needs -- I see him as an excellent teacher for all ages!
Sara J.
Sean is the music theory graduate assistant at the University of Redlands and is extremely knowledgeable about the subject. He is also a great composer and plays multiple instruments. I would highly recommend him as a music teacher or tutor.

My teaching practices are deeply rooted in the philosophy that each student has potential and a musical voice to share. I believe that through open-mindedness, hard work, and dedication, any student can become an effective music communicator.

As a teacher, my first goal is to facilitate learning and growth so that
students may develop their own inner musical voices. My job as a teacher is to spark independent thinking and encourage students to pursue work that is artistically and personally satisfying for them. Ultimately, I want to guide students to become their own best teachers, enjoy the learning process, and discover how music can be a tool for personal expression.

I teach beginning through advanced students of all ages. I emphasize the importance of setting short- and long-term goals with each of my students.
As a studio teacher, I provide an environment for students to
1) explore, 2) have new experiences, and 3) develop good playing habits.
In lessons, we focus on ...

Having the opportunity to grow with Dr. C is truly a gift! Her personal skill and expertise is awe inspiring, and she knows how to pass it on in clear and creative ways. She's always has amazing ways to explain everything, even simple scales and fundamentals, and keep anyone intrigued and learning. Dr. C puts so much care and effort into teaching her students during and after lessons. Personally her kindness and proactive nature has inspired me to grow and practice as a musician even during this time of quarantine.
Rebecca
I am so grateful to have had Dr. Laura Clapper as my teacher in private lessons, studio class, flute choir, and piccolo class during her doctoral studies at Florida State University. Dr. Clapper is an incredibly gifted musician and teacher. She is one of the most well-rounded musicians I have ever met with performance experience and research in many different fields of music. Coupled with that knowledge is a deep sense of compassion and dedication for her students. Dr. Clapper individualizes instruction to meet the student’s individual needs and goals. She is always willing to go the extra mile to help her students succeed. Dr. Clapper helped me grow as a musician beyond what I thought I was capable of and I am so thankful to have worked with a teacher as kind and knowledgeable as her!
Nori Ikeda
I have definitely improved by her basic training and recommended etude.
Her advice is truly fitting for my level up. Improving position, embouchure, control of breath and keeping air.
I also like her sense because she select very beautiful tune matching with my level. Thank you.

Music theory is the basic foundation for every good composer and songwriter. There's a lot to learn and a lot that can be used in your own music. Even if you only want to play guitar and not write music, music theory can help you be a better improvisor, increase your harmonic knowledge, and play better in group settings.

About Jeremie

I'm a self taught guitarist who has been playing for 20 years. I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time. I currently perform with one of my students from TakeLessons named Mackenzie O'Brie

"The BEST private flute teacher

My 14 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Allison since November and we have been very impressed with Allisons approach and attitude from the very first lesson. My daughter rates her as by far the best private flute lesson teacher she has had, she is very encouraging whilst still giving very clear instruction on what my daughter needs to work on to improve her playing. 5 stars."

"I'm 25 and had never learned singing in my life, but wanted to surprise my girlfriend (a singer herself) as part of a proposal. Mr. G was an extremely experienced, knowledgeable, and supportive teacher who carefully considered my strengths and weaknesses to deliver a personalized training plan. In a few months after being a total beginner, I was ready and the proposal was extremely successful. I cannot thank him enough for this wonderful gift, and I continued lessons since because I enjoyed his exceptional teaching. 10/10 would recommend."
