About Trevor

Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of
music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's
fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I
started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the
huge, black monstrosities that people in the pre-historic used in
place of iPods), followed closely by my father's CD collection.
After a while, this ravenous desire of to know and feel music moved
me to play an instrument. After a couple of false starts with the
drums and violin, I found my true musical calling: the guitar.

On January 25th 1995, on a whim, I began playing the
guitar, and I have yet to put it down. Along the way I've picked up
a number of friends for my guitar, including the bass, the lute, the
sitar and, once again, the drums. After on

ly a few years of
practice, I started playing professionally, in bands and solo guitar.
Live playing experience, I believe, is the most important experience
that any musician can have, in that, the most important part of music
is how it sounds, and playing in front of people is the quickest way
to learn how to play effectively. And this is what I teach; how to
be a musician, not just a technician.

*** Lesson Details ***
A student can expect a curriculum tailor-made to their needs and personality. Every person learns differently and this is an important distinction in my teaching style. Some students need a strong hand to keep them working, others need to find many different ways to the same conclusion to keep them focused, while still others need a laid-back friend in order to accept knowledge.

I stress rhythmic literacy, for, as my jazz teacher always said, "rhythm is king." If composition is important to you, then we'll focus on music theory, but if you're just wanting to learn how to play some fun rock tunes with your friends on the weekends, we can do that as well. As I stated before, we'll get you playing in front of people in no time.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide an amplifier, a loner guitar (if needed), staff and/or tablature paper, metronome, pens and paper for the lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Music theory and composition, guitar, bass, lute, beginner to intermediate piano
Classical, shred, blues, and rock guitar; renaissance lute; blues, rock and slap bass; composition of many styles; world music.

About Mark

I believe in making music fun while students learn. Beginners through professionals who have a genuine enjoyment through playing will create a life-long enrichment, hobby or profession. Strong fundamentals with solo application help the whole student develop. Whether you are looking for basics, school ensemble support, audition preparation or a come-back plan, musical expression and enjoyment are a personal extension. I look forward to helping all my students remove obstacles to their self-expression.

Hi there! My name is Scarlet and I can't wait to meet you. I've been teaching private lessons since 2017 and have loved helping my students learn how to read music, play guitar, and learn the songs they love. I currently attend the UNLV School of Music
for music education. Teaching music is my passion. I'm easy-going and my schedule is flexible. Learning a new instrument can be very daunting and frustrating, especially if you do not have a teacher. To combat this, I strive to make lessons fun, organized, and tailored for your success. Happy to answer your questions. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

About Carlos

My name is Carlos.

I am a music teacher and have taught professionally for over 20 years. I have taught at Berklee College of Music, New England Conservatory, Musicians Institute and the Cornel School of Music. Currently, I teach at the California College of Music and Los Angeles College of Music (LACM).

Privately, I teach music at my studio in Los Angeles. My studio is located in the historical Village Green. I also teach Online, using the Zoom platform, to students worldwide. I use several cameras to enhance the online music lesson experience. Online students will receive a video recording of their lesson. My classes are always fun, stress free but with a strong curriculum, organized and dynamic.

- Piano: I teach contemporary, pop and jazz piano styles. I also teach sight-reading, technique, improvisation, piano repertoire and

jazz voicings.

- Music Theory: I teach both Jazz Chord-Scale based Harmony and Traditional Four Part Harmony. I also teach Ear Training and Solfege. I wrote a six level course on Ear Training-Solfege which is been used in different colleges. My music theory students range from beginners to advanced.

- Guitar/Bass: I'm a pianist but I work with my Guitar and Bass students in the areas of Jazz Improvisation, Music Theory, Ear Training, Solfege, Sight-Reading, Groove development and contemporary repertoire.

- Songwriters/Producers: Over the years I worked on giving shape to the songs and ideas of many songwriters and producers. With my songwriting and production students, I work with their melodic development, chord progressions, Hit-Song deconstruction and modeling, and how to create your own music drawing from the best contemporary resources.

I would love to work with you!
Please send me a message to talk about your musical goals and needs.

I have been looking for somebody to help write and notate my songs. I went to some producers and music teachers for help with my songs. I wish I would have to run into Carlos back then. Carlos is very knowledgeable about songwriting and just music in general. He takes his time to always listen to my ideas and then helps me organize my melodies and chords. He even helps me write my songs down. I am glad I am working with him and would like to recommend Carlos to any songwriter.

About Andrew

I have been an active professional musician in the Utah Valley for the past 4 years. I came to Utah from Portland, Oregon in 2011 to study at Brigham Young University under Ray Smith, where I earned a BM in Saxophone Performance in 2018. While there, I performed as a member of the BYU Synthesis Big Band as a performer and featured soloist, sharing the stage with the likes of Gladys Knight, Peter Hollens, Konrad Herwig, Ed Calle, Corey Christianson and others. In 2016 I went with Synthesis on a tour of Eastern Europe, where the band and I performed at the Salkrastu Jazz Festival. I can be heard as a featured soloist on the tracks “Laura” and “Downtime” from the BYU Synthesis Album “Downtime” (2018). On the classical side, I was selected as a finalist three years in a row for the BYU Concerto Competition, played tenor saxophone from 2015 to

2017 in the BYU Wind Symphony, and played principal clarinet in the BYU Symphony orchestra in 2018.

In addition to my performances at BYU, I have performed and collaborated with numerous groups and artists on the Provo and Salt Lake music scenes as both a commercial and studio artist, such as my collaboration with Utah-based vocalist Emily Merrell in her performance at the 2018 Jazz Education Network Conference in Dallas, Texas. I also returned to the northwest in 2015 to take part in the Port Townsend Jazz Festival, where I studied with jazz greats such as Terrell Stafford, Steve Wilson, Bob Mintzer and others.

I am a passionate teacher and am happy to take students of all levels, over Skype or in person.

About Emilee

I'm a student at Kennesaw State University. I've always had a passion for piano, and it's only grown as I've started teaching and sharing that love with others. I offer recitals at least once per semester, and National Piano Guild Auditions in the spring!

Taking lessons with me, you or your child will learn to read music, and play with excellent technique and artistry. Most importantly, I strive to inspire a love for music and piano. By playing games, and learning fun songs, students stay engaged with lessons and music making for years to come.

I teach out of my family's home close to Cartersville/Canton, as I currently live in student housing in Kennesaw. I teach online lessons from my desk! I'm so looking forward to meeting you, and helping you grow your passion for music!

"Jimmy is just unbelievable. He's friendly, and always finds the positive in the process of teaching. I've studied guitar, and recorded vocals in his studi
o.
He makes himself available, and is gracious when circumstances prevents the lesson for that week. Given my busy schedule, I've had to stop the guitar lessons. However, I just saw that they may be able to be done online?...If that's the case, please contact me Jimmy. I'd love to re-start asap.
Best regards,
