About Charles

I am an international recording artist and seasoned performer. I have been playing music since the early age of 8 yrs old. I have always been inspired by music and love to inspire others with music. Some of my accomplishments include putting an album out with Universal Records as a Nashville recording artist, having over 7 albums out internationally, and recording and playing with some of the biggest names in the music industry. I am a classically trained musician as well as an innovative and experienced teacher. I have been teaching for over 15 years and have seen many of my students go on to
become top-notch performers themselves while pursuing successful careers in music. In addition to being a private music teacher, I have also taught at many schools in the valley including the Center for Educational Excellence School, Grand Canyon Preparatory private charter school and the Arizona Music Academy. I teach all levels of guitar, bass, and drums and tailor every lesson to the individual student’s needs and personality. My annual recitals are live-performance concerts featuring bands and other performing groups formed from among my students along with solo performances. My students also perform regularly throughout the community and are successful in their musical endeavors at all ages. I teach a wide range of genres and styles from classical music, blues, jazz and rock to heavy metal with an emphasis on becoming A-Level lead guitar soloists and song writers. I teach songwriting skills, music theory, and have even helped many of my guitar students be able to sing better while learning their main instrument.

*** Lesson Details ***
I make my lessons fun and informative and have had many students stay with me for up to 7 years. I show you everything you will ever need to know about music theory but in a very useful applicable way. I teach popular songs from any artist and classics that have stood the test of time and show you how to become a great song writer of your own giving you an insider’s knowledge about how to perform and have the audience standing asking for more. No matter if you want to become a pro lead guitar player or just play to have fun I can show you how to sing and play the guitar or piano at the same time or singing songs from church as well as your favorite rock or pop songs with confidence.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Just my own guitar and amp they need their own equipment.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, flamenco, rock, heavy metal guitar. I have also developed new classical guitar techniques that I call the "trem" stroke and the "harpeggio"

*** Lesson Details ***
Piano students will focus specifically on the most important skills and concepts they need to be able to play proficiently and musically. This will be through the use of proper technique and providing clear explanation of music theory. Scales, progression, harmonizing, improvising and sight reading will all be demonstrated and explained thoroughly. Also creative exercises to help the students build chops and play parts that they can call their own will be encouraged.

Drum lessons will improve the students technique and creativity while introducing many diverse styles. I will introduce (or reinforce) the rudiments and how they might be applied to any beats or fills. Linear patterns and four way coordination patterns will be applied for developing good coordination skills and ambidextrous discipline. Styles will be covered to grasp a feel of straight 8th and 16th note patterns. Blues shuffle and swing rhythms will be covered so that the student can get a feel of grooves that are based on triplets. Students can also learn about music and rhythms from all over the world. (Latin, Jamaican, Afro Cuban etc...) After the basis of various rhythmic concepts are applied then we can reach into the field of playing over the bar line, playing in odd meters, and soloing.

Lessons with me will focus on the following:
 Students of all ages and skill levels
 Improve your technique and creativity
 Play in any style of music you are interested
 Drum set and hand percussion
 Learn through fun exercises

• Understanding rhythm
• Rudiments
• Sight reading
• Stick control

Alysia R.

Gilbert, AZ

About Alysia

Music has been my passion for the past 18 years. I started piano when I was 5 yrs old and the violin when I was 7 yrs old. I continued with lessons until I entered the Detroit High School for Performing Arts. During my sophomore year, I took additional classes at Wayne Sate University for music theory and in my senior year I took on my first piano students. I have been teaching piano, violin and music theory ever since. I have also choreographed and taught dance for many years as dancing has been with me since my first lessons at 4 yrs old. My focus is in ballet, tap and jazz. I am a gradua
te from Eastern Michigan University where I was actively a part of the music and dance program.

*** Lesson Details ***
I remember my piano teacher and I try to keep her balance of fun and learning. I am a very fun teacher, but I do expect my students to work, and learn. I introduce learning games and have contests. I also regularly quiz my students. For the younger students I like to inform the parents about what they should be practicing and of any theory exercises they may have for the week. Music is a rewarding and enjoyable passion that I try to pass on to my students.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have their own instruments. I will provide the first books, but they will have to provide the books that come after and I will assist them with that.

*** Specialties ***
I've been doing ballet, tap and jazz for 16 years and i taught all of them for about two years. I teach classical piano and violin.

We were disappointed when Alysia showed up late to our 8 year old daughters very first piano lesson (which was an 8th birthday gift.....she was very excited) And then to our surprise she leaves the lesson 5 full minutes early. We thought that maybe she was having a rough day and decided to give it a shot again next week. Well, this time, not to our surprise, after a suspiciously quite...piano lesson...our daughter confirmed what we had hoped was not going on....Ms. Alysia spent much of the lesson texting with "her parents". Just disappointing.

Solid, happy Teacher, quality instruction!

Aysia has been a fantastic teacher for my 13 year old daughter for violin. She has clear expectations and lessons. She is very competent with her skills and good at communicating her knowledge in an encouraging and constructive manner. She has been flexible with the schedule when necessary, due to life happening. I highly recommend her as a choice teacher.

Awesome!!!!

Alysia is a great teacher I was a little nervous to use her because most of the reviews were written by parents whos kids are learning and I am an adult who just really wanted to learn the violin but after meeting Alysia she is not only patient but informative I think learning as an adult we or at least I tender to want to run before I can crawl like let's just learn this so I can get to the "good stuff." The way she explains stuff really lets you see there is method to the madness of trying to learn something so complicated? She is also easy to work with both in song selections (within abilities) and how she teaches. Learning the violin poster among a thousand other things is important and she has a way of correcting that doesn't make me feel stupid I know my husband has the nicest things to say. After a few lessons I am still on simple songs at only a few lessons and I still mess up but I have improved enough he doesn't run away or put in ear plugs anymore. Thank you Alysia!!!! I cant wait till I get a few more lessons in.... I am very excited!

Sara Riley M.

Gilbert, AZ

About Sara Riley

I have two passions.

Music: Music is my favorite, favorite thing. If you want to learn to play your favorite pop/folk songs, I'd love to help you learn the tricks to make it easy and fun! Let's come up with some accompaniments that are inspired by your favorite songs but are still all your own. That is also the best way to became a songwriter. If you want to learn to write some songs that are true to you, I can help you do that, too.

Fitness: My degree is in Sport Science and I've been a happily employed master trainer and studio owner for 15 years. I sold my studio in Portland, so
my studio is sparse here, but I've got all that I need, including a Sunlighten Infrared sauna, and a chlorine-free, bromine-free pool. I love variety and even if you train with me for 5 years you won't repeat a workout. I still have clients on both coasts that I train over Skype so I am very experienced with that. Fitness should be fun and empowering.

Sara is my favorite music teacher. She's always so much fun and is endlessly creative. She has helped me start recording some of my song ideas and fill out covers. She is so positive and encouraging in helping an individual realize his or her potential.

I've also had the opportunity to do workouts with Sara for many years now and she is an amazing trainer. Really smart, tough and creative. Her training style matches her artistic temperament so there is always a lot of variety. She believes I can do it and so I do! (She also tells great stories so my workouts go fast and have lots of laughter.)

I would recommend Sara to anyone looking to improve his or her music skills and/or health.
