John P.

Los Angeles, CA

About John

MUSIC:
I began playing music in a blue collar, east coast town. I learned from playing in bars and clubs from the time I was 16 years old. I learned quickly how to play to and for an audience as well as how to connect with an audience as small as 5 people, and as large as 50,000 people. .

Playing lead guitar and singing, my first two bands toured extensively. We played tiny backrooms to big clubs to amphitheaters, opening for all sorts of people, such as: Love/Hate, The Misfits, Rainshine, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, Guttermouth, Firehouse, and other such bands. I'm the lead guitarist an
d co-lead vocalist for my current rock band which recently played at the Chivas Arena, the Orange County Fair and we have a regular gig at the Kibbitz room in West Hollywood. CA. We perform originals and covers.

I've also spent a lot of time in the studio, and put out several indie rock CDs over the years, as well as assisted in audio engineering trouble shooting in the studio for a top 10 Billboard hit recording artist.

WRITING:
I am a Published novelist with "Nerves" (2012), "Dust Of The Dead" (2015) and "Ghost Heart" (2016). I have been in around 50 anthologies, short stories, magazines and novellas, and have been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award 3 times so far. I have also written for The Examiner, Diversity News Magazine, Fangoria, Dark Discoveries and others.

FILM:
I have made a few feature films and worked with a cast of A list directors, producers and actors. I have also shot for Living With Frankenstein, Diversity News Television, The HWA, and Various projects ranging from book trailers to actors reels. I have edited for Film, Television and created Trailers from start to finish.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm told I'm pretty laid back, but that doesn't mean I'm not a stickler for discipline. In the end, it's up to you to do the runs and scales and chords, so there's only so much I can do. I try to inspire my students to do well, as it's the most rewarding thing you'll do, creatively speaking. There's nothing more satisfying than hearing music being made from your own hands. I can get you there, but you have to do your share.

One of the biggest goals I have is to get people up and playing as soon as possible because it's very inspiring to get there. I started teaching guitar when I was 16, and each one of my students was playing in bands within their first year. They were extremely motivated, and I hope I was key to their inspiration. They tell me I was.

I've also taught many people not interested in just performing, but who have come to music for different reasons. Some found it therapeutic, others wanted to do it, 'just because' -- and that's perfectly wonderful reasons to want to express yourself through music.

Another area I really love teaching is songwriting. I grew up in a time where playing lightning fast medieval scales was all the fashion. Well, that just wasn't in me. I was more into songs, so I focused on that area. I've written tons and tons, and have been the main songwriter for all the bands I've been a member of.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Recording Studio, piano, guitars, vocal booth and other instruments.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I've got my own guitar and bass. I can bring a small amplifier if need be.

*** Specialties ***
My methods vary from student to student. Usually I try and assess how each person is comfortable, and re-assess over the life of our lessons together, as it can change.

I'm a folk and rock player, but I've taught so many different styles at this point, it's great.

Very Patient and Knowledgeable

John is an extremely patient, giving and compassionate teacher. He knows how to trouble shoot and get you where you need to go. He was a born teacher and leader. His musicianship is excellent and he knows how to play, as well as perform. I highly recommend this teacher. I can't say enough wonderful things about him.

Erol G.

Panorama City, CA

About Erol

My style and attitude toward teaching tends to be conversational, reflective, and interactive, along the lines of current research on effective education. I have developed a talent with certain creative arts, such as imaginative writing and electronic music production; as a result, I am computer literate, capable of assisting with computer assembly, maintenance, and design, as well as productivity software. Due to my limited funds, I do not have direct experience with the Adobe suite, but I have extensive knowledge of related, free distributions that are transferable. I also have formal educat
ion in the field of English, innovative leadership, and Education. My current level is Master of Arts with advancement to the dissertation phase of a PhD program. My most popular subjects are as follows:

American-English Pronunciation Practice (ESL):
*****Each Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recording*****
Carefully following Burkkowsky's (1969) multi-media method, I have taught this subject for over five years for public and private causes, such as library, individuals, and language schools. My emphasis for pronunciation is a scientific, comprehensive overview and treatment of the various sounds, rhythms, inflections, and patterns the spoken language integrates. I encourage practicing and mastering both the sounds themselves, as well as how the sounds are connected and contextualized. I use contemporary sound recording and .wav editing software to involve audio feedback and self-monitoring.

Sources: Burkkowsky, Mitchess (1969) Teaching American Pronunciation to Foreign Students. New York: Warren Green, 1969.

German Language and Culture:
*****Each Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recording*****
I have grown up bilingual English and German, attending an international school from a very young age. I attended, also, a German public secondary school, where I earned a diploma. I taught German in the language lab of a community college, for special needs students, and for private agencies, such as Tutor Doctor. My emphasis is on a comparative introduction of the language to draw out a common ground and familiarize possibly daunting differences. I also enjoy asserting that German is often underestimated as a rewarding second language to study.

Microsoft Excel:
This spreadsheet and data management software program is of crucial, pivotal importance in any business and financial environment. The program enables efficient and prompt development of arithmetic and statistical calculations of vast data sets. It also helps to visualize and juxtapose related or even discrepant variables. My approach to teaching the program is cumulative and holistic, starting with an introduction to personal inventory management to the processing of large data sets using pivot tables, charts, and dashboards. My emphasis is on making the program as intelligible and transparent as possible to avoid frustration and intimidation. I use a lot of examples and visuals that are readily available.
Typing:
I teach the touch-typing method that is the convention for most journalistic and input-intensive organizational settings. I teach the home row, proper finger and hand positions, proficiency with left and right hands, as well as posture and concentration methods. I enrich the teaching with resources from the web, such as speed-building and error reduction.

Erol, provided one-on-one project training in Excel. He explained and demonstrated how to use the tools and commands most often used, which is what I needed. He was very clear in his explanations and professional. Erol was also easy to schedule a class with. As there is so much information about the Excel program, it is helpful to know what topic you want to cover. Thank you!

Judi D.

Burbank, CA

About Judi

Hi everyone! I've been teaching in a variety of areas for many years in many different respects. I teach voice lessons, and audition coaching. I've been doing that for a long time! During my "day-job" years, I was an analyst, and I'm especially skilled with Microsoft Excel. And I LOVE teaching people how to make magic on that program. I have done projects that included creating databases, training departments on the use of said databases, taught entire departments at Jet Propulsion Laboratory how to migrate to Microsoft Outlook from (the archaic) Eudora.

My musical talents run parallel wit
h my affinity for numbers. In my life, it has manifested in music composition, arranging, and musical direction. And, of course, PERFORMANCE! I've performed in and around the Los Angeles area for many years. I own a professional Christmas Caroling company that I direct and sing in as well. So I'm a performer, and a small business owner! So come see what I can offer!

I thought I was pretty good at excel! Well, Judi was able to show me that I was only using 10% of my Excel brain. I had NO idea what I could do with Excel to make my life easier until I learned from Judi. I'm sure I will be using her again! Thanks!!!

I hadn't had a voice lesson in more than 15 years, but in one session Judi got me prepped for an audition by helping me to determine range, song selection & presentation. Who says you can't circle back on a dream? Judi gave me the confidence to do just that.

Irina is amazing... I would never even think that I can create such beautiful photographies.
My father used to have a small photo lab at the loft and it was like a magic to me. I was always passionate to learn the beauty of photography however I never got the chance to.
I took few classes with Irina, she helped me to create incredible photos for my marketing campaign.
Irina is very professional and patient teacher, she has deep knowledge of photography and she makes it fun to learn.
I would recommend Irina to anyone who wants to learn photography.
