Ben M.

Glendale, CA

About Ben

See Ben's latest contribution to the TakeLessons blog at http://takelessons.com/blog/vocal-health-for-singers.

With a top-rated private events entertainment company (2015 Couples' Choice Award - WeddingWire.com), three full length releases under his belt, a bachelor's degree in music from Northeastern University, and over 15 years experience as a vocalist, Ben currently teaches his craft to children, teens, and adult singers. Ben has received training from a number of teachers in Nashville and Los Angeles - all of whom teach speech level singing, a tried and true method of singing that trul
y makes vocalizing as easy and speaking.

Applying these exercises to each student based on individual needs, Ben works with students to evaluate current skill level, set goals for a customized program, and ensure marked improvement with each lesson.

Ben's specialty is coaching pop vocalists. Having shaped his own voice around the styling of Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Michael Jackson and Adele, Ben's style mixes pop/rock vocals with R&B undertones.

In addition to his releases as an artist and appearances in professional productions on the East and West Coasts, Ben is also a YouTube sensation. His videos has received over half a million views in the past two years.

What an amazing person and teacher Ben is! He's energetic, articulate, and great at demonstrating the physicality of singing for a novice like me. I was overwhelmed at first by all the new information I learned about how to use my muscles to control airflow and volume in my mouth and chest, but Ben quickly made things fun and enjoyable, so it was never too much to handle.

I truly have enjoyed working with him, and he's also a great singer and just a really cool guy who made me feel comfortable and at ease. Even though I haven't had time to practice too much (practice is the #1 key to improving!), I've always looked forward to meeting with Ben to take my singing lessons.

I'll definitely be working with him more in the future. Thanks for making my introduction to proper singing techniques a really awesome adventure Ben!

Spencer L.

Glendale, CA

About Spencer

Hello future students!

I am a very easy-going guy and teacher. I have been playing music for about 12 years, studying diligently in and outside of school.

I'm recently finished studying and received my degree at the University of California Irvine for music performance. Through the various private lessons I have taken, I've learned many aspects to music education that help me with my students (you). I have been teaching music privately and in local schools for over 6 years now.

My goals as a teacher is to inspire students to create, perform and continue studying music.

*** Les
son Details ***
Although I want every student to have a good time during their lesson, I do expect a lot out of them. Depending on their ability and age different curriculum will be used. Generally I try to make each lesson a fun experience as well as informative. I like to drill the fundamentals but work with each student individually on what they enjoy and want to learn.

After a few months of practice, students will be able to play complete songs and grooves, they will be able to keep solid time, and will have developed basic tools to improvise and solo.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Two drum sets, PA, recording equipment, upright piano, amps for guitar and bass, instruments and ear protection headphones.

The space is used for recording and rehearsals and is nearly soundproof.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide all instruments I teach. But in most cases I prefer that each student has their own instrument/software. It's very difficult to practice without an instrument.

*** Specialties ***
My methods are to inspire students to play, perform, create, and more important practice. I try to make each lesson a fun experience as well as informative. I like to drill the fundamentals but work with each student individually on what they enjoy and want to learn.

Spencer has a true gift in the world of drumming. He is an excellent drummer, as well as a very effective teacher. He quickly knows where a student's weak spots are, and what to do to improve his/her skills quickly. He does this with lessons that are fun and motivating. He has great energy, and is a good listener. He is a great teacher, and can easily adjust his technique to match the needs for a child, a teenager, or an adult. I have no regrets...

We just switched teacher and absolutely thought Regina is wonderful with my 6 years old daughter. Regina is patience, took time out to assign home work but most importantly, Regina recognized where my daughter's trouble was to slow down and help her to improve in that area.

My daughter said she enjoyed your teaching. What a great way to start.

Thank you!

I love it!

Ms. Regina is a very experienced, fun, and encouraging teacher. She explains everything very clearly. Other teachers's lessons are usually boring, Ms. Regina's are so much fun! I am really happy Ms. R is my teacher. Recommend her to anyone.

Debbie K.

Burbank, CA

About Debbie

Tutoring has been a major part of my life for over 7 years and I love it. Seeing the excitement in a student's eyes when they finally get something they've struggled with is why I do what I do. My strength is in getting to know the way a student learns best and finding techniques that support that style and help the student grow.

I have experience working with mild autism and have multiple references if interested.

Paul does a great job of balancing the theoretical and applied. He focuses on developing strong fundamentals and good habits but also delves into songs that apply new skills learned along the way at the appropriate pace. As a beginner, Paul has helped me get off to a good start where I'm learning a lot but also having a lot of fun.

A big plus is that he's got a real down-to-earth personality that makes the lessons even more enjoyable and really interesting to talk to about all things drums and otherwise.

My son has taken lessons with Paul for over 5 years. Not only is Paul an accomplished musician, he's a great teacher. His teaching style is positive and supportive. He has modified my son's lessons through the years, as his goals and needs have changed. Paul has always been professional, reliable and enthusiastic. He genuinely seems to enjoy what he does, and as a bonus, Paul is also a really nice guy, who has had a positive influence on my teenage son's life.
