Mike S.

Sherman Oaks, CA

About Mike

I have taught private guitar, piano, bass and drum lessons since the late 70s in Salt Lake City, where I majored in jazz guitar performance, and since 1980 in Los Angeles. I make the lessons fun. Some of my students have received college scholarships and won cash prizes for music contests. All of them had fun while learning and improving on their instruments.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very enthusiastic and can teach students how to read. If they do not want to read music, they can learn to play by ear. I can also show them where to put their fingers. During piano lessons, I often accompa
ny students on guitar and suggest a scale for improvisation, so they can play the blues. During drum lessons, I often play bass so they can learn to groove.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should have their own instrument and a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz improvisation on piano and guitar.
I also teach recreational guitar and piano for adults, including classical and blues styles.
I coach bass players and drummers in playing stylistically correct grooves for jazz, rock and latin music.

I had a great first lesson with Tania. We did a lot of vocalization technique, which is great, although I would have liked to have a bit more time for practicing my songs. But I get there's a process and we'll have more time in future lessons.

I sought Tania out in order to try to retrain my voice after years of speaking, singing, and even breathing incorrectly were leading to raspiness, soreness, and exhaustion. In just five lessons, Tania completely overhauled my bad vocal habits. She gave me exercises I could do on my own every day, and she was clear and thorough in explaining everything I needed to know about the mechanisms that go into proper vocal usage. I cannot recommend her enough as a voice teacher. She is the real deal, and a truly wonderful person to be around!

Phenomenal experience. Mark is not only a consummate expert when it comes to Pro Tools, he is a highly skilled teacher, extremely professional, and a great guy. As someone with a PhD and a background in teaching and instructional design, I know something about effective teaching and Mark is truly a cut above--organized, patient, engaging, articulate, focused, helpful, illustrates his points with colorful anecdotes, offers useful ways of remembering the information... Mark, thanks for sharing your knowledge as well as your enthusiasm for ProTools.
