I teach how to make recordings sound good!

About Mike

I have taught private guitar, piano, bass and drum lessons since the late 70s in Salt Lake City, where I majored in jazz guitar performance, and since 1980 in Los Angeles. I make the lessons fun. Some of my students have received college scholarships and won cash prizes for music contests. All of t

Mike taught Leo in person before the pandemic started and has been doing online lessons with him for the past eight months. He is amazing with both. Leo has a very short attention span, but a deep love for music. Mike has been able to hold Leo’s attention every week for over a year — even during online lessons. Leo has become an awesome little pianist, and has developed a love for the piano. It has given him the ability to express all of his feelings and has helped his attention span for his schoolwork. Mike has so much patience, and always inquires about Leo’s favorite activities. He is great with kids and makes them feel so comfortable. Leo loves his “booming voice” and the free play blues music they get to play together every lesson.

Very skilled, helpful, and easy to work with! Highly recommend!

Russ is a straight up musical genius that has decades of experience playing the guitar. He will make you think of music in an entirely different way and his unique approach to the guitar makes learning so much easier. Definitely worth it!

Russ is such a wonderful teacher. He's so passionate and teaches in a way that's interesting, easy to grasp and fun! I've learned so much so quickly

About Jonah

Learning to play the guitar is one of the most rewarding experiences you'll ever have. Whether this is your first time picking up the guitar or you've been playing for years, I'll make sure your lessons are structured and paced in a way that's specifically catered to your goals. I've worked with

Jonah's a great guitar teacher! Super patient and instructive. He's great at breaking down music theory into digestible pieces and has made the topic less intimidating. I've learned so much from him and have improved tremendously!
DIANA
Jonah is one of the best music teachers I've ever had! He breaks down hard music topics and answers questions with patience. He is very knowledgeable about the guitar. Musicians of any level will learn a lot from him and will grow as musicians.
Max
I've been taking lessons with Jonah for 6 years now (4th-10th grade) and the experience has been amazing! With Jonah's help, I have learned so much about the guitar, both in technical aspects and in simply "jamming." Jonah is always very patient, kind, encouraging, and his passion for music very clearly shows in his teaching. Every lesson I take is very enjoyable, and I always come out of the lessons feeling like I have made good progress on whatever it was we were working on that week. Whether you wish to learn about complex music theory and lead guitar (like I am currently doing), or just want to learn how to play a few songs, Jonah is a perfect choice as a teacher. Additionally, Jonah is very communicative and flexible with timing. Whenever I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson for whatever reason, Jonah responds to my messages quickly and is almost always able to find another day that week for our lesson to take place on. 5 stars, fantastic teacher, I highly recommend Jonah!

Very knowledgeable and enjoyable to learn from!
Gigi
I decided to take lessons with Edwin for guitar because I had been trying to learn on my own but I just wasn't progressing fast enough. Edwin taught me things you just can't pick up unless you work one-on-one with a professional. He is always on time for our online lessons, friendly, and patient. Every week I felt like I was being challenged just a little bit more and picking up new things. I would recommend him to everyone I know in a heartbeat!
Henry
Edwin is a fantastic teacher and so patient. I am amazed at how much my son has learned in just a couple lessons.

I have been studying and working with Kenny since 1997. I started and continuing as a student of music. He is an excellent teacher and mentor. My learning started with vocal, piano, song writing and production. I am so ever grateful for the influence Kenny has had over my musical development. I highly recommend him. Thank you Kenny!

"Andrea is a great musician. But a great musician doesn't make a great teacher. He's both. Really.
He is a wonderful producer. So, if you are interested not just in learning guitar, but in recording too, he is able to make your sound shine, and teach you how to do it.
I play both piano and guitar, and he helped me a lot to understand the mechanism inside those instruments with theory and musical touch."

David quickly discovered what I do know what I desired and need to learn. He has helped me to make tremendous progress in just the three lessons. I look forward to each session.

"When my Dad Lou turned 100 years old, and since he always liked to sing, we contacted Randy to make a record for the occasion.
My dad had a good voice, but with Randy at the piano (and adding an orchestra to the mix!!) my dad could easily have given Frank Sinatra a run for his money!!
Randy was gracious, considerate and attentive to Lou’s every thought and his every tone.
Lou is almost 102 now, and is quickly changing. I keep the record in my car and play it often, remembering and cherishing and tearing up for the good times it brings to mind."
