I believe fundementally that each student has a unique learning style and benefits from a tailored approach. I do not subscribe to a particular regimented program of study, rather I select the repertoire and etudes to match each student's needs. I believe in choosing both concert music and etudes to challenge individual deficits and work on skills that will apply broadly across the repertoire.

I have a background in both violin and viola and believe that many of the skills which are taught to young violinists are not addressed early enough with young violists. It is my goal to make sure that young violists develop strong technical facility that enables them to develop into mature musicians with ease.

About Joshua

I am a professional orchestral violist and recording artist based in Long Beach, California. For the past two seasons I have primarily served as the assistant principal violist of the Pacific Symphony, while enjoying a flourishing freelance career in California and abroad. I have been fortunate t

Ryan Is a great piano teacher who caters his teaching style to his students preferences and strengths. I have been taking piano lessons with him for about 7 years and he keeps me very engaged and motivated. I would highly recommend him for all levels of students.
Erik Flatland
Ryan is a wonderful piano and music teacher. He is enthusiastic, talented and organized. I continue to learn from him and apply his wealth of knowledge.
Carmen
Ryan has been my children's piano teacher for more than 6 years. He is enthusiastic, talented, and loves teaching. My older son started playing piano because his Grandma was a very good concert pianist in Germany, and my husband wanted him to learn how to play. According to my son, the only reason he kept learning was Ryan: his way of teaching, his talent and his inspiration.

I have been producing electronic and acoustic music in Ableton for nearly a decade. I am deeply familiar with its capablilities and workflow and can teach you to feel at home inside the software.

Not only can I show you what all the devices and components of the software do, but also how to perform advanced programming to gain unlimited functionality out of your DAW.

Great teacher! All round knowledge of ableton and has really helped me discover different aspects!! Really chill to learn from and a talented musician! Thanks Alex!
David C.
Alex is a great teacher, willing to go at your speed. I can tell he's very qualified to teach any level of student. I'm brand new to DAW software, and I really needed someone to help me work through it from step one. Now I feel like I've got the ideal situation going on, where I work on it on my own during the week, come up with a million questions, and then I can ask him and solve my issues once a week. Very nice guy, more than worth the price of the lessons.

My goal as an instructor is to keep the lessons fresh, fun, interesting, and to ultimately guide the students to better teach themselves as they gain experience and familiarity with the instrument and music. Students can have their lessons catered to the music and styles they wish to pursue. Lessons are tailored to each individual student so that we can build upon their strengths and focus on lessons to improve weaker areas. Students will learn how to build dexterity, use proper technique, and be creative. Every student has different goals, some really want to learn theory and read music. Others may simply want to learn to strum a few chords. Whatever the goal, I can provide the instructions to help the student succeed!

I hired Garrett to work with my two boys ages 8 and 11 during the quarentine. Initially we started online and my two kids had never DJ before. Garrett was able to build rapport very quickly and create a lesson plan for each child that met them where the are developmentally. Garrett used his wide range of music knowledge and natural teaching abilities to create a really fun and engaged learning environment. Once we could safely meet in person, Garrett 's skill as a teacher was even more spectacular. He has helped my kids become real DJ's, find a deeper appreciation for music and has built up their confidence in being able to perform and share music with friends. Garrett has never been late for a lesson and even takes extra time and goes out of his way for his students. He is incredibly professional and has a real gift at connecting with his students. He was the bright light during COVID for my entire family. We cannot thank him enough for all his hard work and the abundance of music that his brought to our home.

Garrett is incredibly personable and knowledgeable, the best attributes of a great teacher! I've learned so much from him already and am looking forward to more to come in future lessons. I'd highly recommend Garrett to learn basics and beyond of dj'ing.
