About Azuri
Learning is one of my main pursuits. My name is Azuri and I have studied music for over a decade and have my degree in guitar performance from musicians institute. I've had the gift of studying many artistic crafts and spend my time today trying to further my own study, while sharing what I've learned with my students.

Art is one of the most important tools we have as a culture and contains in it a shared history, tradition and the keys to future ones. Whether it be through the primal qualities of music or the impulses of dance, the records of drawing or descriptions of writing, these are the tools for our expression. I have had the great fortune to study, in many different settings, a small piece of these traditions and sharing them is paramount in respect to receiving them. I love sharing knowledge and I hope to elevate yours as a st
udent.

Teaching Philosophy -

My teaching philosophy is built on well rounded communication, explanation and examples. So, that a student can truly understand and learn a topic, surrounded in a very humorous, light and supportive environment.
Along with being provided good information, a student learns better and feels more motivated to learn when there is a balance of positive support and confidence building accompanied by constructive criticism and examples/information that can help a student assess what ever walls they may be meeting in their musical growth.

I understand that all students/artists have different goals they wish to achieve. So it is very important to me to accommodate each individuals needs and wants to help them grow in the fields they wish too; However, In that I have played music for a long time, I understand there are certain things that a student may not have been exposed to yet; It is important that while focusing on a students artistic goals they respect and are open to the suggestion and guidance of their teacher.

I truly believe music has an amazing influence on the world and has the ability to change peoples way of thinking. Therefore, I try and keep an open awareness to all music, so that I can understand all different musical languages utilized to communicate to people, and I don't believe I will ever know them all. I hold it to attention to influence my students somewhat similarly so that they can shape the landscape of how we communicate musically in the future.

I also try and be very patient with my students. Knowing that when I feel rushed, it makes information more difficult to comprehend, remember and allocate. I love watching the gears run in my students head, so I try and provide information that pushes a student but is within their abilities.

HUMOR is very important. I like to break people out of their shell by telling a joke and hopefully getting one back, so they feel more comfortable and free. One of a Artists worst enemies are nerves. Keeping things light-hearted and maybe even a little small talk can be very helpful to a students development and growth on a topic. After all, Art is meant to be fun and we should enjoy every moment of it, in fact we should enjoy every moment in life period.

I understand music requires focus and discipline and I have certain expectation of a student to understand that and practice. You can't buy chops, you can't buy music theory etc. you can get help but eventually your the one who must understand it and play it.

I am here to help you. Based on what I know and what I have extensively studied, I will do all that I can to help you achieve your musical goals. I am here to answer your questions and help you grow. I love teaching because I love sharing knowledge; As long as your seek it, it is here for you. Otherwise, I'd still love to hear some jokes.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm very disciplined but am also very light hearted. It's important for me to assess things seriously, so that one can understand a topic or piece of information.

I generate my lessons based on the individuals needs and therefore draw from various curriculums, sources and examples, such as : MI curriculum for ear training, Theory, Single string Technique, Reading, Rhythm guitar, Ted Greenes Chord Chemistry, Berklee Guitar Method, as well as The Real Book, other artist books(Eric Clapton, etc.) The Guitar Players Hand Book, Bach pieces and self developed curriculums, relative to the topic at hand and students personal goals, amongst many others.

-Beginning students within three months of consistent lessons should have the ability to solo and playing chords to songs that they are interested in and songs provided in the lesson along with a basic understanding of the major scale and its relationship to all of the diatonic music.

-intermediate students should have an elevated understanding of scale and chord patters along with the theory that explains modal relationships and use of these concepts.

-Advanced students should learn all of diatonic scale shapes and modes assuming they don't already know them in which case their specifically situation will be assessed

-Professional students I expect to have specific questions therefore where they grow should be largely subjective.

Overall, in a short amount of time on a scale of 1 - 10 I expect to in three months at-least elevate a students musical abilities one full point if not more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio in home in private room with guitars, amps, piano, and seating.
Em's studio is family owned cafe with studio in finished basement with an office, recording equipment, and teaching space for acting and guitar.

*** Specialties ***
As a Musician I try and play as many styles and be proficient in as many as possible and therefore can play most. However, in the fields of blues, jazz, funk, flamenco and Latin I excel.

About Jessie
Thank you for your interest in lessons! I hope to help you achieve your goals and improve your skills, whether you're looking for music lessons, or help in math. Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prosper in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career, and the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of knowledge that will enrich their lives.

Experience:

I received my bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on vocal performance at the University of Redlands in 2011 (which I attended on a music talent scholarship), and am now an active performer in Los Angeles, CA. I have been tutoring and teaching privat
e lessons for almost 10 years, and currently have over 40 active students.

I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women, Seussical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer in churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to stay active in the performance industry, and I could never live without it!

With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life they will achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

LET'S MAKE MUSIC!

*Note: My home office has a lot of stairs and two cats. If you are disabled or have a feline allergy, please consider in-home lessons or lessons online.

About James
My name is James and I have earned a Master’s degree in Music Performance and graduated from Cal State Fullerton. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education received from the University of Redlands. I have performed with a variety of musical ensembles (college, orchestra, band, chamber groups) and have experience in all musical genres. Currently I am Co-principal of the Corona Symphony Orchestra and play in other groups throughout Southern California as well as the Elementary level band instructor in the Monrovia Unified School district.

My passion is educating the musicians of tomorrow and helping them discover their innate musical abilities and desires.

*** Les
son Details ***
My lessons are very student driven and revolve around developing students innate music abilities to help them connect and experience success as well as enriching their lives with music. In my lessons students will develop music appreciation skills by listening to music, understanding basic music theory concepts, growing a knowledge of historical awareness in music all alongside learning the instrument of their chosen preference. The pace set for the sessions is rather relaxed and is highly dependent on the student but, students are guided throughout the sessions to eventually achieve their goals. My main teaching approach is: Let me use my skills and knowledge to help figure out what works best for you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
The home studio lessons take place in the living room or a finished garage with tile floor. Seating is available in both areas. Parking is on the street. He has an upright piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide music as well as they can provide music as well. I can provide a music stand. They need to provide the necessary equipment that allows their instrument to function

Nick is an amazing instructor! I started off knowing nothing but the simple fact that I wanted to learn bass. He's helped so much to further my love for the instrument and has helped me through each step, every doubt, and all the sore fingers. Not only have I mastered some of my favorite songs because of him, but he's also shown me so much love and appreciation for music itself. You can really see his passion when he plays and when he teaches. I definitely recommend him as an instructor. You won't be disappointed!

Slap the bass boy! Nick has so much experience and valuable knowledge of the bass that after just a few lessons I could actually feel myself getting better. He really values all genres of music and is not lying when he says he is experienced in all of them. Through various listening sessions we had, he turned me on to so many great bass players of all genres. Nick is the youngest, but by far the best and most engaging bass teacher I have had so far!

About Lee
My passion for music existed as long as I can remember. When I was maybe three, my dad showed my a live video of a Dan Fogelberg concert. I would play it over and over again and mimic the players, using toy rifles as guitars and rigging up mic stands out of Tinker Toys (Yes, I'm old enough to remember Tinker Toys).

At 12 my dad bought me my first guitar and I caught on at a rate that was perceivably rapid. The words "natural" and "prodigy" were used, though I find them quite frivolous. By 14 I was playing in church worship bands and in high school I was playing in bands of my own.

There's a phrase, "Those that can't do teach." I cannot disagree more. Not everyone can teach. This requires a special sense, an ability to intuit the type of environment and experience which best suits the learner, and the ability to connect. My versatile
personality and perceptive range of approaches more than qualifies me. Given the opportunity, I will show you or your child the uniquely memorable experience that is taking guitar lessons from me.

Although I was not a student of Lee’s—I was one of his college instructors—I can attest to outstanding qualities that would easily transfer to terrific, individualized guitar lessons. A very curious and hard-working person, Lee would ask insightful questions and would contribute generously to classroom discussions. His curiosity never seemed to waver and pointed to a sharp mind that that would keep growing and growing. I can envision him viewing his guitar students as fascinating mini-universes of possibility to nurture; he would be a teacher genuinely interested in taking students as far as he could with their development. Lee is a charming person and deals with people holistically. Based on what I heard him perform, he would be especially wonderful in teaching popular music styles on the guitar. Recommended!!

About Khalil
I am a professional drummer, music educator, producer & audio engineer. Who has been playing & teaching drums professionally for over 15 years. Studied under Joseph D. Mitchell (LA Phil Harmonic) and James Bradley Jr. (Chuck Mangione & Anita Baker). I am currently offering lessons to beginning, intermediate & advanced students.

The beginner will learn to read modern drum notation / the four basic drum strokes (natural, down, tap & up) / proper sticking techniques for various applications / all standard rudiments, as recognized by the Percussive Society of America / playing to a click track / creative drum fills / odd meter patterns, and many styles including; jazz, funk, fusion, blues, rock, R&B, hip hop, drum n bass, world music and orchestral.

The intermediate to advanced student will learn better control & execution of rudiment
s & grooves he or she may already be familiar with. Introduction to playing patterns in odd time signatures such as 5/4, 7/8 and 9/16. Visual concepts applied to various genres of music. To be used in an effort to capture a particular mood, as it relates directly to the feeling of a song. Similar to the practice of method acting.

Lessons are held at my project recording studio near downtown Los Angeles. On two sets: An acoustic muffled practice kit, used during the Rudiment & Sight Reading portions of the lesson. As well as an 8 piece Roland Electronic virtual drum set, used during the Drum Set Application portion of the session. Which allows for real time play along with lesson material or any of your favorite songs.

About Taj
Hello! My name is Taj, and I am a classically trained singer and voice teacher based in Los Angeles. I received my BA in Vocal Performance from UCLA in 2014 while studying under internationally renowned opera star, Vladimir Chernov. I continued my graduate studies at École Normale de Musique de Paris under Maestro Chernov's wife and personal voice teacher, Olga Toporkova.

I believe in establishing a solid technical foundation based in classical singing technique. The technique I teach comes from the Russian school of Bel Canto (beautiful singing in Italian). By gaining control of your voice through breath control and precise vocal placement, anything is possible! A solid technical foundation will assure the longevity of your voice and its application crosses over into any genre of music you sing.

As a singer, I have performed in a
wide variety of contexts ranging from opera, choral, musical theater, jazz, and R&B/pop. I have over 15 years of experience performing, and over 5 years of experience teaching voice. My diverse array of artistic experiences allows me to be flexible and sensitive to the specific needs of my students.

Singing is ultimately a form of artistic expression and release. The end goal of all the technical training is to create an artistic moment for both you and the audience. When you begin the journey of discovering your own unique voice, you will also begin a deeper journey with yourself. Singing has brought me so much joy in my own life and I look forward to sharing that joy with you!

About Skyler
I'm an award winning bass player with experience in a variety of styles, metal, jazz, rnb and rock being my best. With my band Issues I've recorded more than 40 released songs that collectively have more than 100 million streams across all platforms. While doing that I've gathered 10 years of teaching experience, teaching bass guitar, songwriting, and theory/jazz harmony. I've had years of lessons and formal training at dedicated music schools and colleges along the way.

I play bass in my touring metal/pop band Issues and play jazz and RnB at home. In doing that I've become very well rounded! In my years of teaching I've never ran into a student who wanted to learn something I knew nothing about. Wether that is the basics of technique, scales, learning songs, or more advanced techniques like slapping, tapping, 3 finger plucking, or even
sweeping, I got you. I also have a very thorough knowledge of music theory and songwriting techniques supplemented by 5 years of formal music training, 2 of which at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.

Most great players who started young don't remember how to get good at something because they've been doing it since they were infants. I started later than most so I had to WORK for it, and so I remember and practice "chunking" in my own time. Chunking is the practice of taking on large challenges in small increments, or chunks. This is helped by my clear, precise explanation of concepts. I remember what was hard about learning cadences, so I know how to explain it to best help someone else learn it faster than I did, for example. The hardest part about finding an instructor is finding someone who matches your long term goals, but I can guarantee that whatever you want to do, and whatever kind of musician you want to be, I can help you chunk your way all the way to the finish line.

About Jesse
Hi!

I'm a professional violinist with 20+ years experience as well as an electronic music producer/artist. Seems like a weird combo, but I love doing both!

I work as a session string player, and I also produce alongside some of LA's most celebrated musicians in the neo-soul, electronic beatmaking, and lo-fi hip hop communities.

Students can expect to be given a completely 100% unique curriculum to work with their goals -- I often ask students to give me a list of people they like to listen to, and then we figure out how we can best achieve a skill set that works for their musical lifestyle.

All of my students walk away with knowledge of fundamental music theory as well as the tools to strengthen their sound, both on a real instrument and on a computer.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
