About Michael
Michael L. is originally from Irvine, California. He started his music studies with Russian and Moldovan teachers Alex Zhiroff and Simon Kaganovsky. With their guidance he was introduced to orchestral playing. He has been principal for the Irvine Classical Players and La Primavera/Four Seasons, and was a member for three years in the Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra. Michael has won concerto competitions and performed solo with the above listed orchestras, and his Freshman year at NYU he was awarded principal of the Reparatory Orchestra. At NYU, he studied with Marion Feldman. This past year M
ichael graduated from NYU with a B.M. in Cello Performance and received Runner-up in the NYU Concerto Competition for the second time.

Michael performed the Haydn Cello Concerto in C major with the Irvine Classical players in six concerts on a tour of France in 2009. His Freshman and Sophomore year NYU Piano Trio also studied abroad in Italy and played over 30 concerts. As a teacher, Michael has worked as Teaching Assistant to his high school teacher and esteemed cellist, John Walz, at the Idyllwild Arts Summer Program. His duties at Idyllwild Arts Summer Program included teaching private lessons and coaching chamber groups. Looking toward the future, Michael hopes to form his own student base and become a member of a professional orchestra. In his free time, he enjoys swimming and taking long walks. He is also an avid video gamer when he has the time.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a lot of different practice techniques that can make learning the technical aspects of pieces on the cello fun and efficient. The techniques require patience to learn and a personal dedication, which includes parental involvement especially for younger students.My curriculum depends on a couple student qualities: how hard the student is able and willing to work, how much time the student has to practice, and whether or not the student wishes to work towards being a professional. No matter what, music is both an outlet for passion and the discipline required to practice cello carefully trains general studying ability.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Everything necessary

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide: Music, Music Stand, backup bow, proper cello chair, place to have lesson, places to rent/buy cellos from.

I cannot provide: Cello, permanent bow, originals of music (if copyrighted)

*** Specialties ***
I am registered with the Suzuki Association of America. My main focus tends to lean towards the bow hand as that is where tone is developed; however, intonation and left hand technique are a necessity requiring patient calculated practice. For both bow and the left hand, personal methods inspired by my teachers and the Suzuki Method are at the core of my teaching.

I've played on countless stages with orchestras, ensembles and bands. I can show you what it takes to get it done and be ready.

About Kyle
I love music! To me, it's a way of life. From listening to playing to writing and of course teaching. I grew up with music at school and home. My dad was a piano player and teacher so music has been a part of my life since day one and I want to share what I have learned. Everyone has a unique musical talent and I enjoy helping them find it. I believe that anyone can be an excellent musician. Playing an instrument should be a fun and creative adventure. Whether it's strumming at home, playing out in the clubs, or writing the next big hit, I will do my best to get you there!

My musica
l life began when I was in 5th grade and my dad bought me a saxophone, which I played for over 10 years. I quickly learned how fast I could improve if I simply kept playing. When I hit my teen years I fell in love with rock music and mowed enough lawns to buy my first guitar. I jammed and wrote songs with many other musicians and several bands. We played countless shows and released a few albums. Now I write music for TV, Film, Video Games, and other media outlets and I'm having a blast!

I started teaching 7 years ago and found that it is one of my favorite things to do. Helping others grow into great musicians is rewarding and fun. I've learned that from grade school to retirement, each student is a unique and special individual. My lessons reflect that fact so that we can reach all your goals together. *My personal goal is to get my students to understand and write music that will stay with them and encourage them to continue.

All lessons take place in my fully operational Digital Recording Studio and dedicated lesson room. Gaining real world playing experience through technology is a definite advantage over traditional lessons. This also allows us to capture ideas when songwriting and provides a unique practice experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
Everyone is different, and every lesson should be suited to fit the individual.

Depending on the type of lessons (guitar, bass, music production, theory) the style teaching will be very different. It's all about YOUR goals and needs. I will get you to where you want to go!

Each student is going to receive lessons based on their preferences of genre and style of music they desire to play. I expect my students to practice regularly and have a good time as their abilities and knowledge grow. By working together, we can focus on goals and problem solving to get you to the next level of play. Most importantly, we are going to have a blast while we learn to play music!

Imagine looking back years down the line, listening to something you wrote and hearing the improvements and your own personal music history. That's what writing and recording as you learn is all about.

*We'll start slow and build your knowledge base with each lesson.
*You can expect to understand what you are playing AND be able to Write Your Own Songs.
*You will be given everything you'll need to succeed.

I have several reference books, videos, and charts; plus I can show you smart phone apps and websites that will help you learn and practice! We will learn songs, write songs, and record songs. I provide jam tracks for all my students to play along too and offer to record their own music for the same purpose. We also keep a running journal that we use each week. This allows the student to look back, see improvement and be encouraged to continue!

Within 6 months you can expect to understand how songs are built (including chords and scales), be able to play several, and feel comfortable with trying your own skills as a songwriter or guitar player.

Let's start playing!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Comfortable and fully operational Digital Recording home studio & music room w/ recording capabilities, computer, keyboard, amps, books, videos, various guitars and bass, tons of music to listen to and study, FREE Wifi and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not travel. My studio is the #1 advantage for learning!

*** Specialties ***
*Instruments: Rock, Blues, Metal, Indy, Folk and Acoustic styles.
*Production: Recording, Mixing, Mastering, Programming.
*General Music: Theory, Songwriting, Producing.

I personalize all my lessons for the students needs and interests. I use several different reference materials including: The Ultimate First Guitar Book, The Guitar Handbook, Shredding Guitar, Guitar Solo Strategies, and more. All my students learn theory and how to use it in song play and songwriting. I have them write short songs, record them, and finally use those songs to jam out their scales and use theory.

So far I can tell that taking lessons with Kyle is going to be great. He explains things in a way that is easy to understand, gives you things to work on, and doesn't mind going over something again. You feel comfortable, and work at a pace that makes sense for you. He is also a really funny & down to Earth guy.

IMPORTANT - REGARDING MY AVAILABILITY PLEASE NOTE:

The availability listed on the calendar is NOT my FULL availability.

I am very flexible and try to accommodate everyone. Depending on the time of year, I usually have night hours on two days a week and teach on many Saturday mornings / afternoons as well. Click on the 'Ask George F.

I've been playing and singing music professionally for about 20 years. As a family man and father of two, I also I earn my living and support my family with music. I have a very student-driven teaching style, work with students of all ages, with focus on helping the student achieve his or her individual goals, small or large. I try to keep the lessons fun but focused at the same time.

I bring a balanced and personalized teaching style to my lessons, based on a well rounded education and wide range of real-world life experience. I have a B.A. in Liberal Arts and have performance experience on many different fronts, from local rock cover bands to Top 40, from acoustic soloist to fronting a nationally touring Metallica tribute.

I come from a musical family - my father is also a pro musician. The biggest thing I've learned as a teacher of guitar, bass and voice is teaching the instrument has only made me a bigger student. The learning process never ends and that is one of the great things about music.

No matter where you are with the instrument - a beginner picking it up for the first time, or a seasoned pro of 10 years that just needs help "putting it together," I believe I can help you to get wherever you want to go.

Regarding availability - make sure to inquire if you don't see a time open that suits you - I am flexible. I perform 4-6 times a week and teach full time. Flex lessons tend to work very well.

As one of my students, you can come to expect a friendly welcome at the beginning of the lesson and then throughout expect our main goal to be helping you make your best music possible. I possess a wealth of knowledge
and skill collected from decades of practice, master classes, winning competitions, earning degrees and performing both in bands and as a solo artist.
I am relaxed and happy, disciplined and product-oriented while at the same time understanding the difference between practicing for improvement and statically repeating the same exercise or passage over and over.
