Although trained in standard teaching methods, he has developed his own method of teaching to positively enhance the student€™s strength, dexterity, ear-training, memorization and techniques. His goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician.

This year Jason was also the M

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 transcribing for guitar and bass since the age of 18 and since then has become a master of the craft including both 5 line staff and tablature, hand-crafted exercises and deconstructions to better enhance the students learning. Artists and genres that Jason has experience with range from Classic Rock, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Guns N' Roses, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Robert Johnson, Pierce the Veil, Paramore, All Time Low, Demi Lava to, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Pantera, Avenged Sevenfold, The White Stripes, Green Day, Old Crow Medicine Show, Taylor Swift, Mumford and Sons, Bruno Mars, Rob Zombie, John 5, Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine, Van Morrison, the Beatles, AC/DC, ZZ-Top, Bullet For My Valentine, All That Remains, Ozzy, Black Label Society, Sublime, Aerosmith, At the Drive In, Type O Negative, the Black Keys, the Pixies, the Toadies, Black Sabbath, Jason Mraz, Lady GaGa, John Mayer and Journey.

Jason attended the University of Alaska, Anchorage where his degree is in Music and Business. He is constantly continuing his education with music theory courses as well as private guitar instruction. He attends guitar workshops and seminars by artists such as John5 and Kerry King who are known as some of the worlds finest guitar players. He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

Another nice feature that you might enjoy from one on one sessions with Jason is learning the ability to craft and record your own songs using state of the art technology that caters to your own unique personality. There are no limits!

Jason teaches all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced as well as artists that are signed to labels.

Local news outlet Fox 5 did a segment with one of his students who overcame issues with ADD and depression as a result of taking guitar lessons.

I am so lucky have Jason as my daughter's electric guitar teacher. He is very professional, he knows what to teach and how to teach my daughter based on her level. My daughter really learned a lot from the first 5 lessons that she just completed. Of course I will sign her up to continue with Jason. Jason is also a very nice teacher. He never mind to teach extra time if he finds my daughter is still with passion to the music of the class, and Jason even lend his own guitar to my daughter for her jazz band audition. Thank you so much Jason!

About Alex

Trained and educated (MM) in Russia and USA, over 20 years experience in teaching. Individual approach to the course development based on student personality, goals, skills.

Major instruments are piano, classical guitar, accordion.
Student must have own instrument and desire to learn!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe many of my students enjoy my class and are able to achieve a higher skill level because I make it a point to personally motivate them. I give them personalized goals to reach and/or tailored practice techniques.Based on response, I may offer words of encouragement or
tips such as how to ease sore muscles or an alternative way to execute a technique they are finding extra difficult.

I make it a point to not just teach music grammar and/or fundamentals of music, but to include the importance of the sound of music strategies to enhance their skill development.

Alex was wonderful! He was very friendly and personable, knowledgeable about the accordion, and was very supportive and encouraging for my son. Alex was also very patient, for this was my son's first accordion lesson. He welcomed any questions and took the time to explain things. My son is excited to go home and practice and can't wait for the next lesson. Would highly recommend Alex for accordion lessons!!!

What's inside the singing lesson?

Lessons revolve around three basic aspects which are training, singing, and acting.

In training, definitely be ready for some scale exercises. If you want to work on making your vibrato faster, breathe better, sing more loud or soft, sing short or longer phrases, co
ntrolling your mix, executing your melismas, r&b licks, blue notes, bending notes, singing super high notes and transitioning down to lower notes: balancing head and chest voice, and expanding your range, then vocal training is what you'll need. Most of this activity involves matching sounds to custom scales played on a piano.

In singing, definitely have a song in mind you want to work on. Then we'll discuss which techniques and skills that are essential for that particular genre of music. Other than that, you'll learn singer's diction and will know how to control vowel sounds and consonants more efficiently. Most of this activity involves you singing either a line, a verse, chorus, bridge, or the entire song. It really depends on what level you feel comfortable at. Most of this activity revolves around breathing techniques, phrasing techniques, and you singing the melody correctly on pitch.

In acting, whether you're recording or performing, you'll still need to put an act together. Portrayal of emotions are quite the essential skills to make your sound believable. If singing with feeling is not working out for you, then you might want to consider working on some basic acting skills. Some of the skills covered are voice inflections, rhythm, gestures, body language, and facial expressions. Most of this activity involves you expressing yourself as an artist.

How to be prepared for the lesson?

If you do not have a piano or recording device on hand, I'll provide both devices for you. It's recommended to provide a piano. It doesn't have to be expensive, it just has to be in tuned. If it's digital, you should be fine. It's also recommended to have a recording device. Many clients enjoy recording their lessons on their mp3 players or any other computer devices. Please have a clean and clear space with an electrical outlet for the piano and recording device. Other than that, please wear comfortable clothing as if you are about to play a sport or an activity you enjoy. If you want to dress like a super star that's fine too.

If you're taking lessons online, don't worry about anything because everything will be provided.

So far, definitely what I am looking for in a vocal instructor to help you explore your voice more, rather than just trying to "get by"' with whatever you've been doing in the past and thereby avoiding the opportunity to grow both physically and mentally.

For me in the vocal realm that takes a lot of courage, and I greatly appreciate greatly his calming presence and his positive attitude. Also, he's organized, responsive, and professional. I'm so happy about that. Receiving a recording of your lesson is an added plus! Thanks so much!

Varin is honestly such a great teacher. Since it was my first time ever getting formal vocal instruction, I was really nervous; however, he slowly eased away my anxiety with his patience and sense of sympathy. Professional yet relaxed, encouraging and reliable! Would recommend.

Eric C.

Upland, CA

About Eric

Hi! I'm Eric, a Saxophonist, Composer, Singer, and Teacher that was born and raised in Southern California. I've been playing the saxophone for over ten years now, writing music for as long as I can remember, and singing since I was in elementary school. I play for a variety of groups in the Los Angeles Area, and sometimes perform in Los Angeles at venues such as the LightHouse, Saint Rocke, and the Baked Potato.

The three most rewarding experiences in my musical career, would be a successful performance, great feedback on a new composition, and watching the progress of my student's skill.
I have taught students from elementary school all the way to those that are older than me. I keep my lessons fun, efficient, and applicable. I give students assignments to work on, so they don't forget what I teach, and so they can expand upon the concepts given in lessons, which familiarizes them with the information. I look forward to helping you unlock your potential!

About Caelin

Hello! My name is Caelin, I am a classically trained pianist with a B.A in Music in Piano Performance, having recently graduated with honors. I have extensive performance, teaching and tutoring experience with an emphasis on classical music, and have worked with beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. I was awarded Academic Recognition in Music from the University of La Verne, and was elected Collegiate Music Delegate for the Mu Phi Epsilon Music Fraternity International Convention.

Practice is key! I always expect the most out of my students and will push them to work hard, practice and discover their own musical voice while having fun making music! I believe anyone and everyone is capable of improving themselves and expressing something beautiful through music.
