About Eric
I began my partnership with takelessons in 2013 and have since taught over 5,000 singing/voice, instrumental & songwriting/composition lessons through the teaching platform. I teach many of my students in person at my creative and comfortable home teaching studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn but I also am a highly experienced online music instructor (Takelessons Live, Skype, FaceTime and G+)

I have coached well-known musicians/celebrities, been an on-set tutor for feature films, and coached music hobbyists to have more fun! I’ve help many students prepare for auditions college/conservatory auditions with great success, as well as for auditions for TV shows/movies, record industry showcases and recording sessions.

Every great performer needs a great coach, I will help you become your best!
______________

I'm the vocalist, lead gui
tarist & songwriter for a well-known touring rock band with a worldwide fan base and nearly 4 million You Tube views. I graduated from New York University with Bachelor's of Music in Jazz guitar and trained with the most highly respected rock/pop vocal coaches in the world. In 2015, I signed a major label publishing deal with Fieldhouse Music/BMG played throughout Europe (and taught online lessons while away). My songs have been licensed for national/international TV (E!, MTV, VH1, Oxygen, TBS and more), commercials for CBS, Nike, Coca-Cola, Samsung and in video games. I actively perform/record and tour with my (3) bands, and produce/cowrite with artists for their own projects.

Lead and Rhythm Guitar:

I've developed a step-by-step approach to learning to solo and improvise.
Using simple, "guitarist-friendly” techniques you will quickly learn and begin to apply major/minor scales/modes, blues/pentatonic scales and “licks.” You will learn triads, arpeggios, interval studies, and extensions and how to use them to create interesting and melodic solos. With my line development/phrasing techniques, you will have your own library of “licks” that will help you navigate both simple and sophisticated harmonic progressions. I will help you to become a become a well-rounded, three-dimensional guitarist with a unique voice!

A few of techniques I teach:

∙ triads / arpeggios
∙ strumming
∙ alternate/sweep picking
∙ tremolo picking
∙ hybrid picking
∙ scales/modes
∙ slide guitar
∙ hammer on/pull off
∙ (up to 8 finger) tapping
∙ bending / double stops / unison bends
∙ whammy bar techniques
∙ diagonal scales,
∙ arpeggios & note groupings
∙ 3 and 4 finger per string scales
∙ fingerstyle
∙ Jazz scales, chords including
4 note open/closed voicing
7th, 9th, 11th, 13th chords
∙ chord melodies
∙ rhythm and grooves of various styles

Bass Guitar:

Right hand:
∙ finger style, pick
∙ slapping/popping
∙ groove, rhythms and playing time
∙ time signatures, walking bass lines,
∙ arpeggios, double stops,
∙ chords & improvising
∙ writing bass lines.

All of my students learn:

Sight reading (standard notation/tablature)
∙ music theory & ear training
∙ rhythm / timing (including reading rhythms)
∙ composition/songwriting

We will focus 1/2 of the lesson on repertoire and 1/2 the lesson on technique. Many of my students text/email me a few days prior to our scheduled lesson with a song selection for the week. I focus our lesson's technical study with the song in mind. It has proven to be very effective and makes the technique and theory are less "boring."

Studio Equipment
I have (7) guitars: including (4) electric, (2) acoustic/electric, & (3) electric bass
(2) tube guitar amplifiers, and various guitar effects pedals.

(1) full-size 88-key MIDI keyboard, (1) 61-key USB keyboard controller, and (1) Arturia MINILAB MIDI controller.

Also, I have an assortment of industry standard dynamic & condenser microphones for live performance and recording applications.

DAW recording software (Pro Tools 12.x, Logic 10.x, Ableton Live)
software synthesizers by Arturia, Fabfilter, Native Instruments, Spectrasonics, Steven Slate, Toontrack and more. I use plugin effects by Izotope, Fabfilter, Plugin Alliance and Universal Audio and Waves for many of my lessons and recording projects.

Travel Equipment
I can provide a guitar, videos, music recording, music workbooks and everything else a student may need. Students are only expected to bring a desire to learn. :)

Specialties

I am a performer with a ton of touring/stage experience, a composer who understands the art of writing and a producer who is fluent in the latest recording technology. In addition to technical studies, my students receive performance coaching/career development. I will help you to find your unique voice, a polished and distinct sound, and your true personality as an artist. I am 100% committed to making you a success!

I will ignite a new, or recharge/rekindle your passion for music, and to sing/play the music you love a lot better!

Eric is one of the raddest dudes out there teaching. If you want your guitar playing to attract lots of hot babes into your life and make you feel like a rock star, then book your lesson with Eric. He was patient and attentive as I asked him many weird noob questions worthy of a few eye rolls. He understood my struggles, and sent me away with lots of homework to help me progress with my playing and technique. There’s never a short supply of wisdom and knowledge coming from this guy. I’m looking forward to learning more.

I've been training with Eric for almost a year now and I plan to continue for as long as I can. Learning to sing can be a difficult and nerve-wracking experience but Eric makes the journey much easier.

Eric makes you feel completely at ease during the lessons and does a great job of identifying and relating to the problems you have. Since he's had a wide range of singing experience, he is able to approach the lessons with various techniques to find something that works for you. I would highly recommend Eric if you're looking for a voice coach who is patient and committed to your success!

Recording your music is essential to getting your name out there or making a product for yourself. I will teach you the basic methods of how to record yourself at home, and when and where to go when you are ready to record at a full professional studio.

About Jesse
Hi, My name is Jesse. I discovered my passion in music when I was 15 and saw another student playing guitar in school. Ever since I received my first guitar at age 16, I was hooked. Not a day went by that I didn't pick up the instrument and pour my energy and soul into my playing.

I specialize in teaching students how to unleash their creativity while also following a disciplined learning method. Music is meant to be fun, creative, and expressive, and I help students find this passion. After discovering their passion, practice and honing their skills will lead to more professional ventures and possibly a career!

Specialties: Guitar, Leads, Rhythms, Fingerpicking, Solos, Improvisation, Recording, Songwriting.

I am excited to be teaching again in Central Florida after recently returning from traveling abroad. I haven't been on Take
Lessons.com since 2014, so I am grateful to be back!
Please feel free to write me for any questions you may have.

Whether you want to be a recording musician, or the engineer/producer doing the recording. Get some hands on experience in a professional studio. Learn crucial skills like microphone placement and mixing. Want to learn how to make electronic music? Learn your way around popular software like Ableton Live and Native Instruments Machine to make professional beats that would stand out of the radio or in the club.

About Eric
Music isn't just a career choice: it is a way of life. I have been playing music since I was a toddler; everything I have learned about life has been through music. I believe that self-expression is important to being confident with yourself. I look forward to sharing my passion for music and teaching with any students who are ready to learn!

I'm an accomplished composer and sound engineer with music featured on CBS, ABC, E!, Bravo, and other networks. I also write music for film & gaming. I am fluent in a range of professional software programs which includes Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Amadeus Pro, Cubase, and MaxMSP.

I have over a decade of performance experience and have played along the East Coast with several bands. Some venues I have performed at recently include The Plaza Theatre in Orlando; Backbooth in Downt
own Orlando; The Crowbar in Tampa; The Bandshell and The Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach. I am a versatile musician who primarily performs and instructs on Drums, Bass, and Guitar (acoustic and electric). I teach nearly all styles of music, including classical, jazz, funk, and rock. I have graduated from Stetson University with degrees in Digital Arts, Music, and Business.

I feel that nothing is impossible. Great results aren't given--they are earned, and I know how to set goals to reach those results. This is a virtue I like to share with students. My dedication to music has helped me accomplish much at a young age.

*** Lesson Details ***
All lessons accommodate the unique needs of the student. My lessons don't merely teach you musical theories: I will teach you how to express yourself through your instrument as you learn those theories. You will gain technical knowledge and the tools to experience your musical potential. Lessons with me are the perfect extra-curricular activity for your child, or a great experience for you. A large part of my curriculum is more than learning how to play a few cover songs. The lessons are also about becoming more confident with yourself as a person and developing character along the way. You will learn about the discipline, patience, and dedication that it takes to stand out among professionals, not just as a musician, but as a strong individual. Music is a part of that. What you play becomes an extension of yourself. Young or old, everyone has something to share with the world through music.

In a given lesson, you can expect half of it to be about the basics of your instrument and the literature for reading music. The other half is about how you can apply these principles in a unique way that relates to yourself. However, the lesson is all about the student. If the student wants to learn in different ways that is never a problem. All I ask is that you're eager to learn! Everybody has different musical tastes and different learning styles. That is what makes every musician unique and every lesson exciting.

I enjoy teaching people of all ages 5 and up and have experience teaching groups or individuals. From beginner or experienced, hobbyist or professional, every person has a place in the wonderful world of music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate studio: computer, recording gear, mics, amps, keyboard, guitars, bass, drum kit

*** Travel Equipment ***
When traveling to their house I ask students to provide their necessary performance materials, i.e. drumset, guitar and amp, essential books, etc. I always provide all necessary teaching equipment, i.e. computer, additional guitars.

*** Specialties ***
Drums- Funk, Jazz, Classic Rock, Metal, Punk, Blues, Hip-Hop

Eric is the real deal as a guitar teacher. I personally play the guitar myself, but as any parent knows when it comes to teaching your own child there is going to be some resistance no matter what! Lol. Eric is very well educated in music and has the rapport to teach beginners as well as advanced students. My son looks forward to his time with Eric and considers him a friend as well! In closing, if your looking for an instructor that has a solid music background that can channel that knowledge into your child or self, look no further!

Background:
I worked for Eddie Van Halen for five years in the 1990's in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles and was instrumental in providing help with development of the Peavey Wolfgang and Wolfgang Special Guitar by providing feedback on the prototypes Eddie was designing at the time. I learned a lot from Eddie and his brother Alex about music and the music industry. (All you have to do is pay attention! ) I have played in bands from Hollywood to Toronto and back both as a singer songwriter and guitarist. I bring the Musicians Institute way to the table and get things up and ru
nning quickly. I help students get it under their fingers fast and get it right the first time.

I believe in sharing the happiness of making music with anyone who loves music and the guitar in particular. I do my very best to get you playing the songs you love in Pop, Rock, Jazz and Folk Music of your choice. Today's modern new guitars are easy to play and you will enjoy learning Guitar right away. That is how it should be.
When you study there is a basic understanding of Guitar to be learned that allows an ease of use for anyone for years to come. This will help you reach your goal and improve each week. My students learn to practice in a way that feels comfortable and makes sense. This takes all the stress out of learning and gives everyone something to smile about and look forward to each week.

The good feeling of playing along with friends and taking a solo is within every students grasp. I will show you the way there. And with a solid and straightforward approach to the theory as it applies directly to the guitar you will feel confident and unafraid of any music endeavor. We'll cover harmony and fingerboard theory and give you a road map of the guitar neck that makes it a pleasure to play. You learn the basics and much more than you thought possible retaining 90 percent of what you learn!

Having been a student myself I was deeply involved in music since age 12 and played in bands and duos for over 15 years . I can help you to be a well rounded player and performer with a smile, a laugh and a joy for music whether your in a band or a budding solo artist.

*** Lesson Details ***
Most students want to play the Guitar to play their favorite songs and I'm the same way. Music is something we carry with us in our hearts and minds. Students will learn what they wish to learn and work at a pace that is comfortable to them. Whether you are a student, “weekend warrior” or a parent whose child has expressed an interest in Guitar anyone can learn all there is to know about Harmony and Theory for the Guitar and how to play their favorite songs.

We cover theory in an easy and straightforward no nonsense way in the first half of each lesson and then apply it to the song you wish to learn. This creates an atmosphere where you understand and feel at home with the Guitar. You get an understanding right away and because it is immediately fun it allows you to feel comfortable at any level. Music is fun, and songs are the creative expression of what we feel. Combining theory and the freedom to play and sing songs allows us to express ourselves through music. 
After 6 months students will have a solid foundation in theory, and a road map of the guitar fretboard enabling them to advance to an intermediate level if they are ready to do so. Students will know enough that music as it relates to the Guitar, which is the world’s most popular instrument in contemporary music, is not a mystery but is a welcome friend. And they will be able to play songs by popular artists and advance at a pace that is satisfying and enjoyable.

What James spouse says about working on songwriting with him:

"James is my husband for over 10 years now. Over the years, I have seen James give guidance and counsel to many hopeful musicians of all ages, and inspire others about how music influences and benefits our lives. I would highly recommend James to anyone who wants to learn guitar, voice, music theory, and acting. James is a great talent, and study with him would benefit anyone with the sincere desire to grow as an artist. When we married, I had fallen in love with James’ conversational style, and his vast knowledge of music. When I heard him play guitar, I knew that I wanted to write songs with him, and we released our first album, in 2012 on iTunes."

I am a certified pro audio engineer. I've worked in the following audio engineering fields: Music recording, mixing and production; Post Production; Front of house engineering; A1 & A2; Live Stage Recording. I have a professional recording studio, which is equipped with the following: Isolated and acoustically treated recording booth; Neumann condenser mic, Genelec monitors, Pro Tools & Logic on a Mac Pro computer and many instruments for live music production (keyboards, guitars, bass, drum set) all of which are set up for recording.

About Ramona
I'm a professional musician and audio engineer. I'm a classically trained pianist and I offer lessons in piano, guitar, voice, music theory, music recording, music performance and songwriting.

I received my music education from The Brooklyn Music School, Cornell University and the The Institute of Audio Research.

I perform in original & cover bands as a keyboardist and back up singer. I also do work for hire session recordings and have composed music for commercials and short films.

As an audio engineer, I record, mix, edit, arrange, master and program demos, EPs albums, mix-tapes, karaoke tracks and ringtones. I also produce as well. I co-own a project recording studio in Brooklyn, NY called Radian Studios.

I'm very passionate about what I do and I guarantee a creative, enjoyable and fulfilling experience!

*** Le
sson Details ***
For piano and voice, I incorporate basic music theory methods but I also focus on ear training as well. My ultimate goal when teaching is for the student to have a visceral experience while playing or singing.

For audio engineering, I go over audio recording techniques and the tools & equipment needed to produce a professional sounding song.

I enjoy imparting my knowledge of music to others and I demonstrate that enthusiasm in my teaching style. I love relating what I'm teaching a student to his/her learning style. Figuring out how someone learns is a key component to my method and I'm a better instructor because of it.

Students usually give me a list of songs that they are interested in learning. Students are encouraged to read music so later on they have the ability to learn songs from books and magazines for themselves.
I teach from my own learning/teaching experience and what past teachers have shown me. I use books from Berklee, Hal Leonard, Alfred and more. I usually email students files between lessons to support practicing. I also have custom backing tracks(songs/practice songs without guitar part) available.

I am teaching guitar privately. I can go to your home(Rockland County) or give lessons in my home(Stony Point). I have taught at Rockland Music and with M

About Sloane
Singing, Songwriting & Music Recording Lessons From a Berklee Grad
LESSONS IN PERSON OR ONLINE!

I'm Sloane, a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music now living in Los Angeles. I'm a musician, songwriter, and producer with 10+ years of experience. I'm fun loving, patient, and dedicated to helping my students reach their musical goals.

Rather than implementing a typical teacher/student hierarchy, I treat my lessons like a one-on-one collaboration. I guide my students through all the steps of music creation from general music theory to singing, songwriting, music production, recording, and mixing. I love giving my students the tools to express themselves musically.

I've taught music and audio engineering full-time for 6 years, and worked professionally for over 10 years. I'm comfortable teaching in English and Spanish. I focus on building a solid technical and artistic foundation that can serve you in all areas of audio engineering, including recording, mixing, live sound reinforcement, home studio work, music for film, post production audio, etc. I emphasize the importance of understanding signal flow, training your ears to listen critically to sound, and building up your knowledge of music production styles. I'd be happy to critique works in progress, giving you feedback to improve your art. We can focus on mic technique, arranging, songwriting, acoustics and studio design, and more.

About Alek
I’ve studied and worked as a musician, engineer, and educator in Ecuador, Spain, and the US. I got my bachelor’s degree at Berklee College of Music in Music Production and Engineering and Music Business and Management. After graduating, worked as a full-time professor of sound engineering and music production at Berklee BIN school, Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ), one of the highest ranked universities in South America, where I taught eight classes per semester for two years, all in Spanish. In 2014, I joined the faculty of CSU, Chico, where I teach Recording Arts and Music Industry courses. I enjoy recording and mixing regularly on music and film projects.

Alek is a respectful, gentle and friendly person. His experience at teaching was easy to notice right from our first lesson. He is a patient teacher when explaining concepts. He takes the time to make sure I can do/use the software by myself. He is also good at explaining trouble shooting process and answers all of my questions with a good attitude. I definitely recommend him, he is a teacher you can trust!
