About Gabriel
My name is Gabriel. I have been playing and teaching for over 25 years both piano and Voice. As a Music Major and Christian Education major at Johnson Bible College I not only learned the skills needed to be a musician but also how to teach what I had learned.

As a Student you will find that learning to play and sing can be fun and easy. I always make my lessons enjoyable and I add humor, games and other instruments to enhance your learning experience.

I am both a musician and song writer. I have a great time teaching and work great with both Children and adults. I love it when
working with people and that "Light" comes on when they realize "I really learned something." I live for those moments.

I have worked with students of all levels. I even work with children with special needs. So no matter what you would like to do with your music, play for enjoyment, compose music, sing, for church or professionally I can help you get there.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lessons I teach are fun and educational. No matter who you are I am able to teach you.
I do not teach traditional piano. Why? Because most people are unable to play this style due to issues with eye hand coordination. The Method I teach "Chord Percussion Style" teaches a strong foundation in piano basics backed by a Strong Music Theory base. I have yet to find anyone who has not been able to learn with this method.
For voice I teach natural voice as opposed to Head Voice. This allows the student to learn to sing in a solo or group setting. You will be amazed at the difference a few adjustments can make in your voice. So as you continue your lessons with us you will see constant improvement.
On top of Voice and Piano I can help you learn to write your own music. Using the theory that you use you will learn to start to piece music together.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard - Roland Weighted Keys
Amplifier
Bongos
Guitar

*** Specialties ***
I teach Chord Percussion Style which is based on the use of chords and strong piano fundamentals and mixed with in-depth Music Theory and percussion technique. Super Fun for all ages!

About Dustin
Teaching Experience:

Private Lessons - 22 years
Public and Magnet Schools - 7 years

I've tutored 100’s of students on Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute, Piano, Guitar, Bass, Percussion, Tuba, Trumpet and Voice just to name a few. I also give instruction in music theory, improvisation, arranging, composition, engraving, music notation, and general studio operations from recording to engineering. I give lessons online and privately.

I hold a Music Performance Degree from the University of Miami, and have also studied at the University of Northern Iowa and Florida International University in c
lassical music, arranging, composition, jazz band, marching, ear training, theory, history, and business.

Professional Experience:

As a musician I have traveled to and performed in over 51 countries around the world, all the major cities in the US and many famous venues in New York City, London and Rome. I've appeared with such artists as: Grammy Award winner and Gospel Singer Mike Farris, Michael Brecker, Arturo Sondoval, Jerry Bergonzi, David Sanborn, Bob Mintzer, David Liebman, Joe Lovano, Jamey Aebersold, Bobby Shew, Poncho Sanchez, Duffy Jackson, American Idol's Kimberely Locke, Earth Wind and Fire, Lionel Richie, Clarence Clemets, William Shatner, to mention a few.

Student Lesson Details:

Most importantly, I believe music and music lessons should be fun and motivating. I custom build lesson plans based on a students individual goals and experience and use most efficient and effective methods available to achieve the best possible results. It is important that all students understand and learn the fundamentals of music yet I’m very accommodating to each student’s individual needs and goals.

Lesson location:

The majority of my lessons are now being taught online. I will also do lessons at your home on special occasion and circumstance. Please inquire for details.

Dustin is a great teacher! I wasn't sure how it would be taking lessons online especially since I do not have a background in music and I'm learning the sax for the first time. He has made learning fun and easy. I can already play a song! He is very knowledgable and providing me with music theory as well. Highly recommend!

· French Horn · In studio
My son took French horn lessons from Joey for several years. He had been taking lessons with another teacher before. The amount of progress he made after switching to Joey was impressive. Joey holds students to a high standard but he is never impatient or harsh. He is organized without being uptight. He has the perfect balance of collegiality and authority. Lessons are the perfect balance of fun and work. On several occasions he went shopping with us for a new horn or new mouthpieces.
We were very sad when Joey moved from Massachusetts to Tennessee.

I traveled with a French horn playing friend to Joeys house. I had 4-5 lessons before Joey moved. Such a patient teacher! Always creating fun activities to teach a point. Husband Jim wants me to have a lesson in Nashville so we can go back to Broadway! I'd love that!!
Best of luck in Nashville

I took lessons with Joey for 7 years and found him helpful and talented, and perhaps more importantly, fun and easy to get along with – I looked forward to our lessons each week. He was very flexible when it came to lending support for recitals or putting in extra time to prepare for an audition. I would highly recommend him to musicians of any age or skill level.

About Lucciana
Hello! My name is Lucciana, and I have been a music industry professional for over fifteen years. I have extensive experience working with young children and children with special needs as the former program director at Cool Kids Groove Los Angeles. I taught songwriting to teenage students at the School of Creative and Performing Arts in New York City and I have been playing the Dobro guitar since I was a teenager myself.

First and foremost, I am passionate about teaching music in a way that leaves each student connected to the joy of creative play. No matter what age, skill level, or instr
ument, I fully believe that music meets you where you are and enriches your life in exceptional ways. I will work with you on what you wish to learn, incorporating skill, music theory, dexterity, technique, improv and repertoire into your curriculum in a way that leaves both of us inspired at the end of each lesson.

Lucciana's incredible energy and ability to connect with children in an instant is the first thing that I experienced upon meeting her. Underneath her warm, welcoming exterior are layers upon layers of musical talent and wisdom that make for a top notch teacher/collaborator. Lucciana truly is the best of the best. Los Angeles is at a loss without her!!!

Lucciana's positive energy is authentic and real! My daughters studied music with her for years. She was always punctual, respectful, considerate, and careful. Her vivacious joy of living is contagious! The most important things she shared with my children was her positive energy and confidence. By modeling these qualities, she teaches them. My youngest daughter has special needs, and Lucciana intuitively adapted to her special needs far better than most therapists. Highly recommend! She taught piano, ukulele, singing, and performance.

Read on as teacher Dan G. examines the culture of fear today - and how to overcome it: As a musician, student, and teacher of many years, I have become aware of a certain enigma surrounding music in our culture, specifically in relation to the experience commonly known as “fear.” Music was originally a sacred art form.

Guitar Theory Basics: Understanding Keys
Curious about keys? Guitar teacher Alexander A. breaks down the guitar theory behind understanding keys... What key am I in? For most of the music we play this simple question yields a simple answer. I think the REAL question here is “why.” Why is a piece of music considered to be in the key of G major, or A minor, or any other key? I was in my 3rd semester of Jazz Harmony at Berklee when the instructor stumped the entire class with this question. I think the answer will surprise you. The
