Brenton K. Los Angeles, CA

I picked up the fiddle a few years ago. It's much smaller than the bass, but utilizes many of the same principals in performance. I play with my youth orchestra - Santa Monica Youth Orchestra - every week and help the section sound more cohesive.

Once you start shifting a whole bunch, we'll get you off to a more experienced fiddle player.

About Brenton

"Music is the best!" --Frank Zappa That is the only thing I can claim to know for certain. My ideals as a teacher are sound control, fun, and community. I teach all of my students how to play their instrument in a manner which they understand and enjoy. I demonstrate how much fun music can be once my student has the facility to create sound freely. And I inspire them to use this gift for bringing people closer together. Since beginning my musical studies at California State University Northridge, I have been working as a musician in the greater Los Angeles area. Now over a decade later, I continue to perform and teach - enjoying the whole ride wherever it takes me. While my primary instruments are Contrabass and Electric Bass Guitar, I have technical know how on a wide ...

Brenton is just terrific with my 8 year old son who is a beginner. He makes it fun for Gus and my kid actually comes home from violin / fiddle lessons saying "It was awesome!". He then will actually practice at home-- and Gus is normally one lazy kid. I observed one lesson where they laughed through it even as my kid learned. Parents or nanny are welcome to sit in on the lesson or hang out in the comfortable living room just a few feet away. Brenton obviously is really at ease with kids and kids respond to him equally well.

Ms. Tasha's exceptional enthusiasm for music shines through in her playing and her unique teaching style. She teaches violin to my daughters and she is a great teacher who is very knowledgeable about the music world. Her lessons are engaging and helpful to move further; she communicates in a way that anyone can understand and does all she can to help them be successful. She teaches at a level that is appropriate for both my daughters and goes out of her way to help each one of them play and comprehend music better.

About Devin

I have been involved in music my entire life, and I love sharing my knowledge with others.

I studied Voice Performance at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. I have been playing the violin for 16 years, and was classically trained from the start.

Aine G. Los Angeles, CA

I have been playing Irish fiddle for 18 years and have been teaching it for almost 8 years. I studied and taught in Ireland until last November, when I relocated to California. I have competed in the All Ireland Fleadh on numerous occasions and have ranked amongst the top 10 Senior solo fiddle players. I am currently a leading member of an Irish/blues style folk band and play in various venues throughout Los Angeles. I would present a focus on aural training in lessons, as this is the most traditional and effective way of learning Irish music. I would also teach a history of the music and it's origin, and all about the various styles in Ireland.

About Aine

I began learning both the piano and the violin when I was five years old. I play Irish Fiddle, Classical Violin and Gypsy Jazz/Blues Fiddle. I completed the ABRSM grades throughout my teenage years and began studying for my performance DipABRSM when I was in University. Although I was successful in my application for studying music performance in Trinity College Dublin, Cork School of Music and DIT Conservatory of Music I decided not to continue my further education with music just then as I felt a change of direction was necessary to explore. Instead I studied Industrial Design in the National College of Art and Design for four years. I attended the DIT Conservatory of Music as a part time music student during this time while also being a member of various orchestras including the DIT ...
