About Aaron
Hello fellow and future musicians, and thanks for checking out my profile!

To tell you a little about myself, I was exposed to music at a very young age since my dad was a musician. I first picked up the drums at the age of 5, and took piano lessons for a year when I was 6. I later played the saxophone in 4th grade, and finally discovered the guitar when I was 9. (Ironic since my dad is a guitarist and the guitar was around the house forever!) He showed me my first chords and really got me started on the instrument, and I played in several local bands in high school playing a range of musical styles from rock, blues, funk, and reggae. I really didn't take music seriously until I was in college, and began studying under Jerry Coelho, a member of the very first graduating class of the Guitar Institute of Technology in Hollywood, CA, and
Dominic Castillo, a graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, who was a student of Jerry's as well. After studying under these talented musicians, I went on to pursue my education in music and received my BA in Music from San Jose State University in 2004. I started teaching music privately during my time with Jerry and Dominic and continued to teach during college up until the present, and have taught hundreds of students since. I now live in San Diego where I teach, work as a freelance musician, and play in local funk/jazz/rock group Science Fiction Jazz and gypsy/kickstomp outfit Quel Bordel!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very easy going, friendly individual who believes that learning music is built upon a strong relationship between teacher and student. This relationship involves good communication, honesty, open mindedness, and most importantly the desire to LEARN and have FUN. I approach teaching music by knowing and understanding the student's musical goals, and teaching fundamentals, theory, and technique through the style(s) of music that the student wants to learn. For beginners, I tend to teach basic techniques and chords through simple songs to get the student playing music as quickly as possible.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room: couches, table and TV, music stand, student can borrow instrument for first lesson, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Specialties ***
My main musical styles that I perform and teach are rock, blues, jazz, funk, R&B, and reggae. I studied jazz in college so I also have extensive knowledge of jazz theory.

About Edwin
Hello! Thank you for your interest in taking guitar/piano/music lessons.

I am a professional teacher/studio musician/performer/producer with over 17 years of private teaching experience and a graduate of the University of Miami Studio Music and Jazz program in 2002 specializing in the guitar.

I am available to teach guitar(acoustic, electric, classical) for all levels, ages, and styles(pop to folk, rock to soul, world to classical) in English, Spanish and Japanese.

Other subjects taught include bass guitar, piano/keyboard, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, harmonium, classical percussion, music theory, composition(all styles from pop to classical), ear training, and studio production/engineering/mixing.

Born in Cali, Colombia on April 1979, I began my musical endeavors studying the piano at the age of 6. Early on I had the opportunit
y to play percussion in the school symphony while at the same time developed an intense interest in the instrument that would become my true love, the guitar.

During 1996-98 I studied jazz guitar at the New World School of the Arts music program under the direction of J.B. Dyas and Dr. Roby George. Upon graduation, I was immediately accepted to the University of Miami jazz guitar program under the direction of Randall Dollahan. It was during this time that I also refined my skills as a classical guitarist and as a composer/arranger. In addition, I began passing my knowledge onto friends and eventually began working as a teacher.

My ability to play almost any genre of music is the fruit of past experience playing with an impressive variety of music groups, including jazz combos, symphony orchestras, Andean world music ensembles, and several rock and pop groups as well. As a studio guitarist I have recorded for various artists including Jaci Velasquez, Carlos Ponce, Alexandre Pires, and Noelia.

*** Lesson Details ***
Now also available to teach online video chat lessons through Skype.

Every one of you is unique and there are many possible paths to reach your goals in music.

With my background and music industry experience, I am able to customize my lessons for you so that you can reach your desired goals. We will take some time to find out where your passion lies in music and I will use my experience and knowledge to create a customized lesson-plan that will allow us to focus on reaching your desired goals and at the same time maintain a well rounded music education.

I find this to be key in making the lessons and your practice sessions very enjoyable, fun and laid back - knowing that everything we practice, play and talk about is in line with your goals as a student.

I will also be playing along with you and demonstrating everything that we're working on - music is meant to be shared and played with others and it is important to have that experience of interaction from early on in your lessons.

So whether it's learning to accompany yourself or others, write songs, read music, understand harmony, solo, or just jam out to your favorite songs, you will be well on your way to reaching your goals within 6 months of my lessons.

Look forward to making music with you!

Beginner banjo lessons

About Eric
Eric comes from a family of musicians. He began guitar lessons at age five as the Beatles were invading the American music scene. Growing up in New Jersey, Eric performed in rock bands until becoming interested in classical guitar. With New York City only a short bus ride away, he spent as much time as possible in the city, studying guitar with Russian born Classical Guitarist, Dr. Alexander Bellow, and Jazz Legend "Bucky" Pizzarelli. During this time he attended recitals of such notables as Andre Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams. Being immersed in this musical scene inspired him to make music his life.

Eric earned a degree in Classical Guitar Performance from the Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford, where he studied under the direction of guitar pedagogue, Richard Provost. While at Hartt and shortly after, Eri
c performed in numerous Master Classes for internationally acclaimed artists such as Manuel Barrueco, Christopher Parkening, Oscar Ghiglia, Michael Lorimer, and Carlos Barbosa-Lima.

Eric has taught guitar at the college level for over twenty years teaching on the music faculties of University of Central Florida, Rollins College, Stetson University, Bethune Cookman College, Florida Southern College, and St. Leo College.

Eric's experience includes performances with rock groups, stage bands, folk groups, classical ensembles, jazz combos, Broadway shows, operas, solo recitals, and concerto appearances. Eric has appeared hundreds times at Disney and Sea World as well as other venues around Central Florida.

Throughout the years he has had many unique experiences while performing, one of his favorites being the opportunity to play the MASH theme song for Alan Alda as well as other stars in attendance at a cast party for the show, Win, Lose or Draw at EPCOT Center.

Although he enjoys performing, Eric considers teaching music to be highly gratifying. The importance of giving students a good foundation with the proper technique and performance skills cannot be underestimated. When a student can play a song from beginning to end with style and confidence you know you've given them a gift that will offer them enjoyment for the rest of their lives.

About Jesse
*Disclaimer*
I'm currently not taking beginner students on guitar, bass, drums, piano, ukulele, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, flute, and saxophone. I highly recommend my studio partners Tyler and Melissa though. Please check out their profiles for the following topics:

Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba, Flute, & Saxophone

My Background

I've been playing with classical ensembles and rock bands since 2001. Even though I started on classical trombone and rock guitar, I have come to expand my repertoire to a variety of instruments and genres. During my time in college I performed with the University choir, orchestra, and band. I also have organized, wrote/arranged for, and performed
with a variety of bands in my home state of New Mexico, as well as Japan, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar classes in New Mexico high schools to Elementary students in Japan to a variety of private students of various musical instruments and genres everywhere I've been. Since relocating to the Bay Area in 2010, I've had the pleasure of working with lots of great students from kids to adults with a wide range of ambitions. Since 2012 I've been running my own full time studio.

Philosophy of Learning

Lessons are generally designed to work towards giving students the tools to accomplish their goals and become increasingly independent over time. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. What kind of music do you want to make? I'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

I also love to help students put together a song, record, and produce it for them so that they can have a recording to share with their friends and family.

I also hold events for my students. (Check out our pictures and videos below!)
Younger students have opportunities to perform for friends and family at my studio every few months. Once or twice a year we'll also stage a larger event off site for more individual students and bands classes to perform.
Adult students also occasionally have events where they get a chance to get together and play music as well.

Aside from in-studio lessons, students also have the option to sign up for online lessons via Skype.
(*Online lessons offered during different times than in-studio lessons.)

*Unfortunately due to scheduling issues, I'm not currently accepting students for bi-weekly lessons. I can do regular weekly lessons, or occasional drop-in lessons, but bi-weekly appointments make it really hard for me to give the best scheduled times to my existing weekly students. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

My studio is equipped with:

*Music Stands

*A P.A. System

*Vocal and instrument microphones

*Guitars, Basses, Ukulele, Banjos, etc

*Two guitar amps and a bass amp

*Various percussion including a fully equipped acoustic drum set

*A Roland V-Drums electronic drum set

*An electric piano console and Yamaha organ

*A MicroKorg Synthesizer

*A Tuba, Trombone, Cornet, Saxophone, and Flute

*An extensive physical and virtual music library

*A recording system that students are not only welcome to use but encouraged to

*HD Webcam and condenser microphone for high fidelity online lessons via Skype

I have been playing bluegrass banjo for over 20 years, and have performed for events such as Thanksgiving dinners at hotels, folk clubs, bluegrass festivals, and fundraisers. In addition to playing and teaching banjo, I play and teach guitar and piano, with guitar being my main instrument. I am no Earl Scruggs, but I am a great teacher for beginners and intermediate players. As a teacher, I am patient, intuitive, and always tailor the lessons to fit the interests and learning styles of each individual student.

About Linda
*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an elec
tronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I can also teach a bit of old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.

We start from the very basics and work our way up to eventually nailing some of that Scruggs style banjo! We also work on chord and scale knowledge and the application of banjo to different genres.

About Jared
I am passionate about music and I strive to share this passion with my students. I started playing guitar at age seven and have been hooked ever since. I have been teaching and playing gigs for years and I have just graduated from Kennesaw State University with a Bachelors degree in Jazz Guitar Performance. I can help students with a variety of styles including Jazz, Blues, Country, Funk, Rock and Metal, Folk, Finger style and Classical guitar.

Lessons are tailored to where you are as a player, what your goals are and how serious you wish to be. No matter what, music should always be fun and something you love, and I believe I can help inspire you to have the same love for music that I have. You will find me to be a laid back teacher. Students will develop skills in a wide variety of areas including reading, chords, scales, modes, and
how to use all of this to make meaningful music.

About Andrew
Andrew is a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, backing vocals) who settled in Las Vegas in 2013. After graduating with honors from Musicians Institute in 2008, he wrote a collection of acoustic guitar pieces licensed to The Weather Channel, then spent 5 years working as a show musician and top-40 musician for 3 cruise lines.

Currently In Las Vegas, Andrew splits his time between his original band, various productions in the casino showrooms, a well-known local country cover band, teaching, running his own music copying, arranging, and orchestration company, various freelance engagements, and spending time with his amazing wife and two sons.

Andrew's original band, "Tin Toy Cars," formed in 2014 and consists of two local Las Vegas musicians and a few musicians from Cirque du Soleil. Their debut album entitle
d "Falling, Rust, and Bones" was released in January 2016 and as a result of the volume of radio play across the country, immediately set a new all-time record on the national Americana Music Association Charts for highest new artist debut. The band's first music video made it's debut in March 2016 courtesy of The Huffington Post, along with a feature article.

I have taught students between the ages of 7-83. You are afraid your arthritis or some injury will prevent you from being a good banjo player? I have 2 plates and 9 screws in my right wrist and arthritis in my fingers and I can still play FAST. I can teach you banjo as a form of physical therapy.

My number one goal when working with someone new is to have my student able to play their first song within their first 2 lessons, regardless of age or ability. When working with a new student I also find it very important that we discuss the students musical goals for the instrument, whether they are long or short term goals. From there, I determine a structured lesson plan based on the individual's needs and music experience.

About Hannah
I was introduced to the world of music at the age of four when my mother, an accomplished violinist, placed a violin in my hands. I have been playing the violin for 23 years and throughout those years developed an interest in pursuing many instruments in the string family. Teaching music is my passion and being able to share that passion with others is what makes my job truly rewarding. Through my years of teaching I have had the pleasure of working with students of all ages and abilities. As a dedicated and experienced teacher I understand that every individual learns music differently. My teaching method is based on differentiated instruction. I enjoy discovering, creating and applying custom learning styles during the course of my private lessons. I believe communication is an essential skill when it comes to teaching not only to stude
nts but also parents.

When it comes to learning a new talent, I believe that patience and consistency is key. Before working with a new student or family, I find it important that we discuss the student's interests and goals for the instrument. From there, I determine a structured lesson plan based on the individual's needs and musical experience. I teach many different musical styles including classical, folk, bluegrass, celtic, pop, etc.

During the course of private music lessons my students will learn basic to advanced instrumental techniques, songs, scales, sight-reading, and basic music theory. I also prepare many of my students for musical examinations, auditions and live performances.

I am new to TakeLessons.com but have been teaching for many years. Here is what some people have had to say about me.

"Hannah was an absolute pleasure to work with. My son took violin lessons with her from 6th grade until his junior year. She is a wonderful teacher who is both knowledgeable and patient as well as having an excellent rapport with her students. I would highly recommend Hannah for any age group of student."
-Michelle A. March 6, 2018

"Hannah , does a great job teaching students of all ages. I am an adult student and have been taking violin lessons for 3 years. She challenges me and pushes for improvement. Hannah focuses on intonation and proper technique. The Suzuki method is taught along with a variety of other music genres - bluegrass, Christmas & popular. Have enjoyed taking lessons each week."

"Ms. Hannah has been teaching my son for about 9 months. He began violin lessons right before his fifth birthday. Ms. Hannah is very patient with him in lessons and he adores her. In addition, she works with us and coaches us on how we can practice at home. We have seen so much progress this year, and we are excited to see how far he can go with Ms. Hannah’s help".

"Hannah has taught me violin for 9 years. Under her guidance and instruction I improved so much I auditioned for and was accepted to the Mastery Orchestra at my high school. Lessons with Hannah have always been engaging, and she has the ability to reveal problem areas without being discouraging. I highly recommend her teaching."

"Mrs. Hannah, as we call her, is an outstanding instructor and has a precious heart. Her teaching style is one of comfort - she “reads” each student and teaches at the perfect pace for each individual, she is sweet, full of joy and always patient. We are incredibly thankful to have found her as an instructor."

"I've been taking violin from Hannah for almost a year and it has been amazing! Starting the violin at age 55+ was exciting but anxiety producing but Hannah made me feel from the first moment that I could do this. She is an awesome teacher and is so talented herself! I have learned so much and could not ask for a better experience."

"Very pleased with Mrs. F. My daughter & I know Hannah for 2 years since she's still Ms. Jones until she got married and become Mrs. F. Mrs. F. aren't just sharing the love of music but she share love and care for my daughter. My daughter loves to go to her Violin lessons. She is very excited and happy every time she gets to learn with Hannah. She started to practice and work hard with Hannah's guidance since 2014. She enjoy learning process and I am so happy to see her progressing so well. Hannah's personality, high professional and communication very well with parents and she will come out of the room to greet & meet and talk to you before the lesson and after the lesson she will always give you an update about your child learning and what they're working on for the next level. Hannah is a very dedicated music teacher if you are looking to hire someone to teach your kids; look no further. Hannah is the one. She's very sweet, kind, care and very friendly. My daughter has improved so much since start learning with Hannah. She made it to become a Concert Master at Georgia Youth Symphony Orchestra (GYSO) and also made it to Honor Orchestra 2016. I couldn't be any happier than this. My daughter loves of violin has grown so much over years of practices with Hannah. I can't thanks her enough for what she has made my daughter become very successful.
Thank you so much Hannah."

My family has worked with many different instructors. Hannah ranks amongst the best of them. I am particularly impressed by her patience and the words of encouragement she uses regularly during my son’s lessons with her. (I’ve had the opportunity to overhear her with a couple of other students, and she is the same with them.) We’re so lucky to have found her!
