About Allen
Hello! My name is Allen and I've been playing guitar for 16 years, and teaching for the past 10. I've been performing and writing since the age of 16 with bands in many styles. I'm originally from Santa Maria, CA, and I obtained my knowledge of music theory, performance, and songwriting skills from taking private lessons in the central coast at a place called Coelho's Academy of Music. Our head instructor, Jerry Coelho, was a student of the late Howard Roberts and was one of the first graduating students to who helped to establish Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT), currently known as The Musicians Institute. After dedicating 4 years of private lessons under Jerry and his other top instructors, my hard work payed off and I was given the opportunity take students of my own. For the following two years, I've managed to consistently teach
40 students per week. I decided to move forward and take my musical experience with me to San Diego, where I currently teach, write, record, and perform my music with others who have similar goals and aspirations. I love playing in as many bands as possible. The main one I play in is called Quel Bordel. Some of the bands I've played in have given me the opportunity to perform with local and big named artists such as D.J. Artistic, Gary Wilson of Stones Throw Records, The Aristocrats, Terry Bozzio, Alan Holdsworth, and Tony Levin. As a full time musician and performer, I'm typically out gigging anywhere from 2-5 a week. As a teacher, I'm here to help you with where you want to be with guitar. Whether it's rock, pop, funk, hip hop, reggae, jazz, blues, indie, folk, and country, I can help you with the technical and theoretical side of things.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal- To get you to become better than me. I find myself as an easy going teacher, and can provide that push when I see students getting more engaged in their lessons. I typically teach out of two main books, and it's optional for students to have their own copy of my recommended method books. I emphasize heavy chord vocabulary and steady rhythm. I believe that in order to be a good lead player, you would have to be a great rhythm player. As we develop technique, you can expect me to incorporate theory as to maintain an even share of the HOW's and WHY's. Moreover, expect to DO something with our lessons. Repetition is the mother of learning, and sometimes it comes down to the idea of 'monkey see, monkey do' before we can have in depth conversations about the application of your lessons in real situations. To me, music is very creative. So I'm a big believer on improvisation with both chords and scales. I believe in practical application when learning the songs you want to learn. So every student will have a unique way of learning the fundamentals only necessary to their personal goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Two small practice amps, cables, method books (personal copies), extra picks, extra guitar, music stand, blank sheet music/tabs for notes, extra strings, music stand, metronome, tuner

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music stand, extra guitar (if needed), blank staff/tab paper, tuner, metronome, battery powered amp, cables, extra strings (if needed), picks

*** Specialties ***
I primarily use Hal Leonard method books for beginners when it comes to reading and basic technique. For those who want to learn at the intermediate/advance level, I use the book called Jazz and Pop Guitar (chords and progressions) and Scales and Modes in the Beginning which can cover all aspects of chord theory and improvisation. I model my curriculum off of my prior lesson plans from my teachers ( based off of Berklee and GIT) My genres specialize in rock, funk, jazz, indie rock, folk, country, blues, pop

My daughter is very shy which is why she won't try new things very often. However, after her first lesson with Allen she was excited. She said he made the lesson very fun and made her very comfortable. She learned her first two chords and is eager to practice transitioning between the chords and is looking forward to her next lesson with Allen.

Allen's an awesome teacher. He definitely knows his stuff and he's a well-rounded guitar player. He's really easy going and doesn't ever make you feel intimidated or dumb asking questions. He's really helping in bringing my guitar playing to the next level.

About Jody
I'm a retired teacher who has played guitar for over 45 years. I'm a fingerstyle guitarist and perform at weddings and special events. I've taught most styles to all ages. I'm probably not the one to teach your teenager to play heavy metal, however. I do teach fingerpicking, fingerstyle, country, beginning to intermediate classical, pop, classic and even Hawaiian slack key. I specialize in beginning children and adults.

I also teach mountain dulcimer, ukulele, beginning bass guitar , and beginning piano.

With children, I use a method book to teach music fundamentals and balance that by encouraging the child to learn to play songs that interest him/her. With adults, I want to teach what you're interested in learning. I believe we learn best when we are excited by the material and challenged to reach the next level.

I have
taught special needs music students - Down's Syndrome, mild autism, adults with arthritis or who have suffered a stroke. My training as a teacher - I have a doctorate in education - makes me uniquely qualified to work with a wide range of student abilities. I spent 26 years in the classroom, the last 15 teaching gifted education.

I would be delighted to meet you and help you begin your musical journey!

After the first lesson, I've realized how much there is to learn about singing! I was so impressed by Hayley's wide range of knowledge and she gave me a few manageable things to work on for the week. I am already learning to feel and manipulate the placement of the vibrations of the notes I sing in different places in my chest and face - something I had never been aware of before. Looking forward to my next lesson!

I really admire her honesty and how well she can work with me. Especially giving you support of confidence and new idea how to understand to not listen yourself but feel your voice. To find my true voice that's been hidden in me the whole time.

About Joe
Growing up in a musical family, I have studied piano as a child before falling in love with jazz music and drums when I got older. In school I studied jazz theory, played in Honors and All Catholic band while playing with different local artists in the Philadelphia area eventually branching out to Atlantic City. Since then, I have been exposed to a wide array of genres and playing styles such as Latin music, Reggae/Island, R&B, Funk, Rock, and more. I developed an interest in Audio Recording when I got to College while gigging and teaching privately on the side. I can teach any level, style or genre. I believe in focusing on the individuals talents while drawing out what inspires them musically and help them reach their full goals. The best teachers that I ever had always focused on what I wanted to learn while presenting a new challenge.
I always strive to make my curriculum fun and exciting for the student. Anyone can learn, and anyone can especially LEARN to learn! Music is fun!

I came to Joe with no serious interest in playing music. After speaking with him a few times I was intrigued and began lessons. His, obvious lifelong passion and understanding of the drums encouraged me to continue along my musical journey. He is a masterful guide and I look forward to my first performance.

About Joseph
My friends call me JP...so, let's be friends! I have played and taught music for many years. I'm a former road musician, and play guitar, bass, and keyboards fluently. I understand music in depth, and so, when I teach, you're not just getting the techniques, you'll be understanding why things work as music, and how you can apply them to your music in general, so that you end up with a great musical "toolbox" to use. I'm also a composer, and it's my job as a composer to understand different styles and approaches. Chances are, I can point you in the right direction for any type of music you want to play. Let's get started!

About Tyler
Tyler Stampe is an international award winning composer from the state of Iowa, USA. Stampe has written for many mediums including film, opera, choir, orchestra, chamber and solo instruments, and electronics.

As a teacher, Tyler has taught voice, music theory, sight reading, and composition lessons to students of all ages. He has a degree in music education, a degree in composition, and is currently finishing his final degree.

When taking lessons; you can expect to achieve the following:
Fundamentals of singing
Building singing skills
How to read and write music
How to listen to music
Sight Singing
Scales
Key signatures
Intervals
Dictation
Chords and how they work
How to analyze music

Here are a few reviews from students I have taught:
Mr. Stampe was a great teacher. He was always professional and fair about his tests and gradin
g. Aside from the basic music theory 1 curriculum itself, he gave the class additional input that gave some of the concepts more context. I learned alot. Most of all, I appreciated his willingness to help me on an individual basis. I don't think I grasped some of the concepts as fast as other students, but Mr. Stampe was always there to lend a helping hand. At times, I'd run into him just as he was leaving the building, but he'd still help me with a homework problem or two. He didn't have to do this, but I'm thankful that he did. I'd recommend Mr. Stampe to anyone wanting to take Music Theory.

Mr. Stampe is an absolutely fantastic teacher. I doubt I would have learned as much as I did throughout the Aural skills sequence at UGA if he wasn't my instructor. He just has a way with teaching and getting concepts across that is very effective. He goes above and beyond to make sure no one in the class ever falls behind, and is very understanding and willing to give extra help. He's so great!.

I love Mr. Stampe, he was very helpful and took time out of his schedule to help me when ever possible! The only thing I would say is try to include more dictations in class, don't focus as much on theory behind it, deffinetly still go over it but just not as much. For example it really did help though when, you would go over the functions of each chord and note. Thank you for a great year!

I thought that Mr. Stampe was a very good instructor. He was always willing to meet outside of class to help you with questions. He also tried to explain things many ways when you don't understand. He is very smart and good at what he does. I hope to h

About Andrea
Piano lessons feature all styles of music, including classical, jazz, and pop. Improvisation, lead sheets, and composition are introduced to all students, and can be pursued more intensively by older students. Acoustic and digital keyboards are available in a comfortable and quiet studio. Beginner students enjoy 45-minute small group lessons in interactive lessons. For all students up through high school: Theory features educational games, and interactive “learning by doing” theory is a feature for all ages. NoteFlight, iPad and iPhone music apps are all available as learning tools. Volunteer performances, friend days, music contests, quarterly group lessons, and a year-end formal recital are available to all students elementary through high school whether taking private or group lessons. Studio goals for younger students include various
 practice challenges, transposition, technique, "minute to win it" and other fun incentives which help students do their best. Adults are encouraged to pursue the music that most interests them and collaborate with me to build the program that is best for them.
I am an educator who will find the best learning style for each student, encouraging creativity and excellence. Twenty years of teaching experience, continuing education in the best teaching practices, a love for teaching, and a heart for instilling confidence and excellence are hallmarks of my studio.

About Jean
Hello!

I'm a university student who is currently studying music performance. I am interested in taking on a few students this summer. My specialty is brass performance (tuba, euphonium, trombone, etc), however, I can also teach basic music concepts such as reading music, and basic piano skills. Whether it is learning to actually perform and play on an instrument, or whether it is simply being able to audiate and then tap out a tune on a piano, I can teach these skills! I am very passionate about bringing basic musicianship to all kinds of people; all people should be able to recognize (or reproduce) the skills it takes to do any type of music. My teaching philosophy is very largely about music appreciation and music application. One will learn to appreciate old types of music and new types of music (like pop), and one will learn to app
ly their skills to the type of music that best interests them!

I also teach Spanish and French in addition; I have 3 years of French experience and 6 years of French experience; I would love to take on some beginner students!

With regards to these lessons, prices are entirely negotiable. Simply send an email and we can discuss.
I am willing to travel!

About Leigh Anne
I am a fun teacher who specializes in building confidence through practice techniques and performance opportunities. I am devoted to making each student leave their lesson with a smile on their face. I have a Bachelor of Music from Berry College, and I am very actively involved in the Cobb County Music Teachers Association.

Piano lessons are tailored to the individual student. I teach all ages and all skill levels. We participate in Pianothon every Christmas, which is a performance at Town Center Mall raising funds for a local music scholarship. We also do an annual Spring Recital, which may have a special theme (last year was video game music). Piano students will learn theory, history, and a love for their instrument.

Voice lessons are any genre the student prefers. I love musical theatre, art songs, lieder, pop music, anime music, ja
zz, or even rap/hip-hop! Each year high school students have an opportunity to go to a state vocal competition. We prepare for school events or All-State Auditions or any other auditions or performance opportunities that may arise. Vocal students will learn theory, history, and technique applicable to the songs their singing.

I also offer field trips! I like to take my students out of the studio and to musicals or shows or even the Renaissance Festival to experience music in real life. Come along for the ride!
