Jason M.

San Diego, CA

As a bass player in a punk rock band I learned to apply the concepts I know on the guitar over to bass and slowly started introducing intervals and right and left hand techniques that are not as common on the guitar. A few of my bass students are professionals and have applied to big name music schools after taking my class.

About Jason

TakeLessons.com Instructor since 2005, Jason M. is now available for online lessons worldwide featuring multiple-camera angles and a share screen experience leaving no stone un-turned!

Jason has been playing guitar for over 15 years and teaching music since 1996. Although trained in standard teaching methods, he has developed his own method of teaching to positively enhance the student€™s strength, dexterity, ear-training, memorization and techniques. His goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician.

This year Jason was also the M
usic Director at the National Guitar Workshop Day Jams Rock Music Day Camp where students ages 7-15 came out to form bands, record original material and master their craft. He also taught beginning to advanced guitar/ vocals/ performance and songwriting as hosted a recording clinic at the end of each day.

Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason has been transcribing for guitar and bass since the age of 18 and since then has become a master of the craft including both 5 line staff and tablature, hand-crafted exercises and deconstructions to better enhance the students learning. Artists and genres that Jason has experience with range from Classic Rock, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Guns N' Roses, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Robert Johnson, Pierce the Veil, Paramore, All Time Low, Demi Lava to, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Pantera, Avenged Sevenfold, The White Stripes, Green Day, Old Crow Medicine Show, Taylor Swift, Mumford and Sons, Bruno Mars, Rob Zombie, John 5, Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine, Van Morrison, the Beatles, AC/DC, ZZ-Top, Bullet For My Valentine, All That Remains, Ozzy, Black Label Society, Sublime, Aerosmith, At the Drive In, Type O Negative, the Black Keys, the Pixies, the Toadies, Black Sabbath, Jason Mraz, Lady GaGa, John Mayer and Journey.

Jason attended the University of Alaska, Anchorage where his degree is in Music and Business. He is constantly continuing his education with music theory courses as well as private guitar instruction. He attends guitar workshops and seminars by artists such as John5 and Kerry King who are known as some of the worlds finest guitar players. He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

Another nice feature that you might enjoy from one on one sessions with Jason is learning the ability to craft and record your own songs using state of the art technology that caters to your own unique personality. There are no limits!

Jason teaches all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced as well as artists that are signed to labels.

Although it's still early in the teaching schedule with Jason, my first lesson was great. Jason made me feel relaxed even though I was nervous, and the materials that he sent me to practice on bass reinforced the teaching session I had with him

I completed eight lessons with Jason and was very satisfied with the musical lessons received. I learned much about the piano, chords, patterns, and theory. On the eighth lesson I received a guitar tutorial and was very impressed with his playing and teaching. I highly recommend Jason as an instructor for the musical instruments that he teaches.

Aaron P.

Apple Valley, CA

Any and all styles, techniques, and medium.

About Aaron

As a 15-year-old teen I was headed nowhere. I had no interests and was failing my freshman year of high school. Then I started playing the guitar and fell in love with music. As I studied under my dad, who was a professional musician, my mind started to open up, my attention span grew. My problem solving skills and comprehension improved to such a degree that my grades went up to the honor level. Since I ended up graduating with a 4.0, I preach and stress the importance of learning a musical instrument.
I got into teaching only 4 years after I first picked up the guitar and immediately found
that it was what I wanted to do for a living. Oh sure! Playing in bands is fun but I enjoy seeing my students grow in and with music most of all. Having over 20 years’ experience as a professional musician and teacher. I have been teaching exclusively in the High Desert area for the last 16 years. I started at a music store in Apple Valley called Hi Note Music then taught at Tom's for 14 years. Now I teach at Rollover Beethoven's Music store in Hesperia and out of my studio in Apple Valley.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach almost any style of music including Rock, Jazz, Blues, Classical, Country and R&B. I stress the fundamentals: technique, reading, theory, ear training but in addition, I will give you all the licks and tricks you want. The important thing is to develop good habits because bad habits take a long time to overcome. I will provide you with the tools to play anything your heart desires and the ability to teach yourself.

*** Studio Equipment ***
separate studio w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Have portable sound system and lap top computer. All the student needs are their instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I have written methods that I have found to work very well in teaching the student all aspects of music and how to apply it towards the instrument. My methods include the essentials in reading, finger exercises, theory, and ear training. I like to prepare my students for any and all genres. The key is to teach the student how to teach themselves.

Joseph C.

Upland, CA

As a bass guitar player, I have played since I was 15 years old. I have played in 2 performing bands as a bassist, despite the fact that it is not my main instrument. I have earned a degree in music theory from San Juan College in New Mexico with an emphasis in guitar performance. While there I performed as a bassist for just over a year.

Students of mine can expect many things from me as their instructor. The first and foremost is that I will do my absolute best to make learning the instrument enjoyable and challenging. They can expect to gain a solid foundation on which to build their personal technique and style. They can expect to be shown how music theory is used to craft the music that they are playing and how these concepts can benefit them as a musician. Finally, they can expect to set goals for themselves that we can accomplish as a team.

About Joseph

Hello! My name is Joseph C. and I want to help you start your musical journey.

I have been playing guitar and bass since I was 15 years old and started playing payed performances in my early 20's. I have had the pleasure of playing everything from heavy metal guitar to country and blues bass. I am currently performing with a Ramones tribute band as well as a internationally recognized, and NAMMI award winning Native American flute artist.

I have taught guitar and bass since 2009 as well as tutored music theory students at San Juan College under the expert supervision of miss Linda Edw
ards. As an instructor, I have but one philosophy. Music is supposed to be fun. There is supposed to be passion. I don't believe in doing tons of work out of books or methods. My preferred approach to music instruction is finding out where the student wants to be, and why they want to play music in the first place? From there I will work with them to set individual goals that we can accomplish as a team. I find that this method is challenging, effective, personalized, and enjoyable.

Joseph is a very fun teacher who brings something fun for the kids. My son did not even want to take guitar lessons originally, and now he looks forward to them, and has made tremendous progress! Joseph gets the kids involved and interested in what they're doing, which I appreciate, as a parent.
He is also incredibly polite, and has fantastic manners! I highly recommend him!

I have little to no experience with guitar, but Ralph makes it very easy to get started and I began learning technique and chords right away. He clearly has a passion for music, but also experience in teaching others to play. He's not only compassionate and understanding for the difficulties you face as a beginner, but is also ready to challenge you and keep you motivated when learning gets frustrating. You'll progress quickly with him as your teacher.
