Barbara L.

Rosamond, CA

About Barbara

Originally from Wisconsin, I was a music student at UW LaCrosse before coming to LA to attend Musician's Institute in Hollywood,(GIT) where I graduated with honors and was awarded a USA Custom Ibanez guitar. I remained in LA working in numerous bands spanning a wide variety of musical styles including blues, rock, country, surf, and even Persian music! With "The California Girls", an all female surf band, I opened for "The Beach Boys" , "The Safaris", "Jan and Dean", "Steppin Wolf"; toured the US playing theaters, fairs, casinos; and played overseas for the troops in Bosnia, Kosovo, Japan,
Korea, Singapore, Iraq, Afghanistan, Norway, Germany, the Pacific Islands, and Diego Garcia. Most recently I was a member of the Greg London band, an impressionist with whom I performed in Leicester Square in the West End of London, at Harrah's Reno and the Las Vegas Hilton for extended runs. I fill in with "ThundHerStruck", an all female AC/DC tribute band and recently did a tour to Afghanistan with them. I also have a band called "Sierra Highway" that performs in the Antelope Valley.
I have studied vocal technique extensively with Robert Edwards, renown vocal coach to the stars (Christina Aguilera, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow ) and learned to teach his method which is similar to the famous "Seth Riggs" method. I have played piano since early childhood.
I look forward to helping you achieve your musical goals and tailoring your lessons specifically to your needs!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to combine specific basics about music and technique with material you would really enjoy learning and performing. Each song or piece has several lessons that can be learned from it. If you enjoy the material, you are more likely to practice every day and progress! You will have opportunities to perform at a recital solo or as a part of a group.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private commercial studio w/ piano, amps, mic, and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
Guitar is my main thing, personally I like blues/rock.

Drum · In studio
Many, many years ago, I was lucky enough to have a math professor at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo who found a way to make mathematics an exciting area of study for me and all of his other students.

Many years ago, I was lucky enough to have a professor in the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department at UCLA who had the ability to provide the perfect amount of background, not too much, not too little, in his graduate courses so that no matter what the student’s undergraduate degree was in, there was never a problem with them understanding the newly introduced graduate level concepts.

And now, I am lucky enough that I found a drum instructor who was willing to take on an old guy (remember the many, many years ago stuff above <g>) and work around my problems with arthritis, senior moments, bad vision, and an occasional decrease in motivation.

While I am probably his oldest student (a distinction I could have lived without), I have listened to him work with several younger, in some cases way younger, students and he is another one of those special people who can teach. Not everybody can teach. Of those that can, many don’t teach well. And, of those that can teach well, not all of them can teach well to people with a broad range of backgrounds, skill sets, motivations, and ages.

Tony has the ability to teach well, no matter what your circumstances.

Prophet is one of the last GOOD GUYS left. Not only that, but he has experience as a real musician. He plays guitar, bass, drums and keys. He has produced me numerous times on songs that I've written, but needed them to come to life. He works FAST and SIMPLE. I can't say enough about his professionalism, musicianship, follow through and kindness. Anyone looking to learn will get a dedicated teacher that will make sure you can walk away with the knowledge you need. Guaranteed!
