Jason M.

San Diego, CA

As a bass player in a punk rock band I learned to apply the concepts I know on the guitar over to bass and slowly started introducing intervals and right and left hand techniques that are not as common on the guitar. A few of my bass students are professionals and have applied to big name music schools after taking my class.

He also taught beginning to advanced guitar/ vocals/ performance and songwriting as hosted a recording clinic at the end of each day.

Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason has been working with my almost 12 year old for several months now. We started with the ukulele and then moved on to the guitar a few months later. Jason is always very open to our suggestions and feedback on our son's progress and makes any adjustments necessary to keep him engaged. Additionally, Jason is always on time and if we need to make scheduling changes he does his best to work with us to accommodate.

If you are thinking of trying the ukulele or guitar, then connect with Jason. I think that no matter your skill level he will be able to keep you engaged, excited and challenged.

Omar G.

Riverside, CA

I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

About OMAR

Knowing that you are looking for a instructor to teach you music puts a smile on my face. You see, music has been a part of my life since the age of 3. Some of my first memories are of me accompanying my father at home with his rehearsals or just singing together to have fun as a family. I believe music is a gift that unites people together bringing out our deepest emotions that words cannot express. At the age of 5 I received an organ and from that point on I embarked on a long life journey to indulge and learn more about music. In elementary, junior high and high school I was involved in an
y subject dealing with music. I joined school choirs, orchestras, bands, marching bands, jazz bands, musicals you name it. While enjoying all school music activities I was selected to join in honor county and state orchestras and choirs. In junior high and high school I was selected to play for the Junior Pacific Symphony Orchestra, received scholarships to music summer camps, and was selected musician of the year. In college my quest continued with the Orange Coast College Orchestra, Praise Symphony Orchestra, Vanguard University Orchestra as well as guitar ensembles and college choir groups. I've also taken private lessons from Dr. Art David (Julliard graduate) in stand up bass as well as David Black (Pacific Symphony Orchestra) and classical guitar with Richard Glenn and David Murray. I've been teaching now for 15 years in guitar, classical guitar, bass guitar, stand up bass, cello, piano and voice ranging from 5 yr old to 65 yr old. My styles of music range from classical, jazz, rock, blues and contemporary. At this point I'm enjoying playing and singing in my church choir and worship team as well as teaching my two kids the joys of music. I hope you truly enjoy the joy of learning music whether it be through me or another teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I require all students to set time aside to practice. For without it, it is only wasting your time, your money and my time. I don't expect a total dedication to it but I do want to see some effort put into it. A little practice can go a long way and the more you do it, the faster you will progress and the more you will enjoy it. We will first start off with what you want out of music and the level you are at and go from there. Student can bring their own music either thru tabs, music sheet or just by ear but one thing I do expect is a student to learn how to read music notation. We will go thru the regular warm up exercises, material practiced during the week and any new music for the following week. Correct techniques in how to hold your instrument or voice procedures will be addressed. Music theory will also be part of the lesson as well as ear training. At the end of either 3 to 6 months you will have learned the basics of music and will be playing songs for you or someone else to enjoy. I will make it a total relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere but some dedication has to put on the students' part.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated music room, guitar both classical and electric, piano, cello, upright bass and electric bass guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own instrument. I can also provide music stand, small amplifier if needed and music material for the first few lesson until student provides for him/her self. Student must have own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
My way of teaching would have to be that they must learn how to read music while learning how to play an instrument.

Joseph C.

Upland, CA

As a bass guitar player, I have played since I was 15 years old. I have played in 2 performing bands as a bassist, despite the fact that it is not my main instrument. I have earned a degree in music theory from San Juan College in New Mexico with an emphasis in guitar performance. While there I performed as a bassist for just over a year.

Students of mine can expect many things from me as their instructor. The first and foremost is that I will do my absolute best to make learning the instrument enjoyable and challenging. They can expect to gain a solid foundation on which to build their personal technique and style. They can expect to be shown how music theory is used to craft the music that they are playing and how these concepts can benefit them as a musician. Finally, they can expect to set goals for themselves that we can accomplish as a team.

About Joseph

Hello! My name is Joseph C. and I want to help you start your musical journey.

I have been playing guitar and bass since I was 15 years old and started playing payed performances in my early 20's. I have had the pleasure of playing everything from heavy metal guitar to country and blues bass. I am currently performing with a Ramones tribute band as well as a internationally recognized, and NAMMI award winning Native American flute artist.

I have taught guitar and bass since 2009 as well as tutored music theory students at San Juan College under the expert supervision of miss Linda Edw
ards. As an instructor, I have but one philosophy. Music is supposed to be fun. There is supposed to be passion. I don't believe in doing tons of work out of books or methods. My preferred approach to music instruction is finding out where the student wants to be, and why they want to play music in the first place? From there I will work with them to set individual goals that we can accomplish as a team. I find that this method is challenging, effective, personalized, and enjoyable.

Joseph is a very fun teacher who brings something fun for the kids. My son did not even want to take guitar lessons originally, and now he looks forward to them, and has made tremendous progress! Joseph gets the kids involved and interested in what they're doing, which I appreciate, as a parent.
He is also incredibly polite, and has fantastic manners! I highly recommend him!

I studied under College Professor and Blues Hall of Famer Mr. Fernando Jones as well as his band. I've also played the blues in SoCal, Chicago, Miami, Nashville, and London under his patient guidance and training. I draw upon his teaching to give each of my students a through and positive lesson. I have been playing the bass guitar now for seven years.

I have little to no experience with guitar, but Ralph makes it very easy to get started and I began learning technique and chords right away. He clearly has a passion for music, but also experience in teaching others to play. He's not only compassionate and understanding for the difficulties you face as a beginner, but is also ready to challenge you and keep you motivated when learning gets frustrating. You'll progress quickly with him as your teacher.
