Milton J.

Corona, CA

About Milton

Music is the means to create a portal into our souls, so that we may see each other for who and what we are, not merely as what we do. I want to help foster those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young how to tap into their own soul portals through music so that they may find others' as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument playing, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it! As a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a double major in Music History & Ethnomusicology and African-American & African Studies; a former co-host of the popular hip-hop radio show ATF Radio: All Things Fresh on KDVS 90.3 FM; a former Music Director of The Afterglow of UC Davis; and a current Vocal Music ...

Wonderful instructor! Milton has a great attitude and is a joy to be around. My son loves learning from him and we are very thankful for finding such a patient, creative and skilled instructor. Student's Review - Milton is an exciting and fun guitar teacher. He has exceeded expectations and made otherwise bland lessons interesting and fun. He is always quippy and easy to be around. Having him as an instructor has made me grow to love the guitar even more.

Milton is a great teacher! He explains everything, teaches you theory and proper techniques. He is down to earth and makes you feel comfortable. He pushes you out of your comfort zone, but in a good way so that you can grow as a singer. I am very glad I chose to take lessons with him!

Best classical guitar teacher ever! Alex is a very easy-going, super friendly and straightforward teacher. He has an amazing ability to make complicated guitar techniques into very easy tasks. I surprised how much I learned just from his first lesson and how much I improved in a week. I would recommend any student regardless your age and level to study with him. You will get your money worth.

2nd Lesson

Alex is wonderful…he has such a feeling for music and being sure his pupils learn properly…one important thing that impressed me…he asked me a very good question, "do you want to learn easily or do you want to struggle learning?"…I have long nails and he explained when hitting the keys, it is very difficult to hold the wrist and hit the key properly….so I have filed my nails down…LOL….because I want to learn piano easily and most importantly learn the proper etiquette when playing.. He is a great teacher..and he teaches with passion...

Love of Music

Had my first lesson with Alex and it was great. He started out showing me what the different symbols mean and the notes. I am so glad he is teaching me how to read music, its very important. Its all very basic now but feel with knowledge of the basics it will help me understand future lessons easily…..looking forward to my next lesson…..in the meantime, drawing the Cleff, Notes and Staffs to be sure I understand, per his instructions…Love it!

William B.

Riverside, CA

About William

I am a guitarist, composer and teacher specializing in classical guitar and Latin American music. I have loved music for all of my life and my primary expression of that love is playing guitar. I currently teach private guitar lessons, lecture at San Bernardino Valley College and work as a freelance performer in the Inland Empire and greater Los Angeles area. I began my study of music at the age of thirteen when I taught myself how to play folk, rock and blues guitar. Though, to be honest, I didn't just teach myself. I had many friends who played guitar who would show me songs or correct mistakes in the songs I had learned from the internet. I remember thinking that music had a special ability to bring people together, and I became determined to understand what exactly it was that gave

I was very fortunate to be able to take my first acting lessons with Mara Madison. Her and her husband provided a very supportive and encouraging environment to someone with no acting experience or background. Mara is very knowledgeable and well prepared for each class. She gave me helpful advice and encouragement, as well as material to take home and study for future classes.

All musical instruments require attention and maintenance. When it comes to the violin, however, it is easy to forget that the bow needs as much care as the instrument itself.
