About Dan
26 years professional experience as an actor and comedian. Playing guitar for 30 years. I will help you get as far as you want to go!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am laid back with a serious approach.A fellow actor recently mentioned to me how acting is stressful, I had never thought about it until then and he's right! The stress has never bothered me though because I always am very prepared. I will teach you the skills to be prepared and well rehearsed so that the performance comes easily.
I do not teach music theory but I can teach you to play guitar or ukulele.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I own 5 guitars, a ukulele, a mandolin and a keyboard. They just need a guitar.

*** Specialties ***
Classic Rock, Oldies, Pop Rock, Pop, R&B, Travis Picking and other types of finger picking.

About Justin
Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and thoughts about how to learn music and guitar.

My journey with the guitar has taken me from the electric rock of Jimi Hendrix, to the shredding of Joe Satriani, then the otherworldly sounds and speed of Al di Meola, and, finally, to the broad world of classical guitar, Flamenco and world music. Over the years, I have compiled a set of skills, techniques, and theories from all corners of the musical globe to help teach students the fastest path to guitar mastery. My goal is to show you how to master the fundamental skills of guitar in order to
play in any style and ultimately create your own music.

Justin is an excellent teacher!! He is a master guitarist, always punctual, very courteous and gives 100% to my lesson. I am learning classical guitar and jazz guitar with him and I am delighted with the progress I've made in just a few months. I am playing beautiful songs and before his lessons I could not play any classical guitar songs at all. Justin tailors the lessons to help me learn the songs I am excited about learning to play. I most highly recommend him as a teacher for any style guitar. Amazingly he also teaches ukulele and mandolin too! He has a degree from Cal Poly in music and guitar and has over 20 years teaching experience. If you really want to learn how to play guitar easily and quickly, take lessons with him!

About Haley
Hi! I am Haley Bradshaw. I am 23 years old and absolutely love music. I have loved music ever since I was a little girl. I have a bachelors degree from Utah State University in Piano Pedagogy. I have taken professional lessons for 14 years, and have taught professionally for 5 years. I have participated in various competitions and concerts.
I have extensive training in both early childhood development, piano performance, and piano teaching. I find that young kids love me, and older kids can relate to me. This means your child's lesson experience with me will be wonderful.
I believe in being incredibly patient and strict at the same time.
I love music and I love children. The combo of the two make me an expert at what I do.

About Emily
I have been playing/totally nerding out about the bassoon since I was twelve years old. It is a world I have been in love with since, and I am absolutely thrilled at the opportunity to share the same experience I've had with people of all ages.

I'm currently a freelance musician working with professional orchestras and opera and theatre companies based in Central Illinois and Eastern Michigan. My Bachelor of Music is in Bassoon Performance from Illinois Wesleyan University, and I hold the Master of Music degree in Bassoon Performance from the University of Michigan.

I am passionate about chamber and new music. I have played in several chamber music groups, some of them being very experimental, often employing the use of interactive lighting for the hearing impaired. In 2016, I spent a month in Kyustendil, Bulgaria playing in grou
ps coached by members of the Bulgarian Radio Symphony. I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity working with other musicians to provide new experiences to all.

About Emily
I have been so blessed to enjoy a career as a working vocalist, conductor and educator for my entire adult life.... sharing my deep passion for music, and the power of my voice, with thousands of audience members and students around the globe.

I have performed with professional opera companies, performance art groups, rock bands, world music projects, musical theatre companies, various vocal ensembles, as well as projects of my own creation.

I am the Vocal Director for award-winning performance group, Vox Medusa, and my professional quartet, The Ages. I conduct four children's choirs at Heartbeat Performing Arts Center, where I also also offer private voice. I have conducted choirs for the Minnesota Opera, and taught vocal classes at StageCoach Theatre Arts schools for 15 years.

I sang with famed festival band, Wookiefoot, for 10 y
ears as the featured female vocalist, as well as WF side project, Mad Love. I've been a guest vocalist for many other bands and djs, as well as an accomplished collaborator and songwriter.

I have sung in dozens of languages (36, at last count!), and speak both French and Spanish. I have performed across the US, for audiences of 10,000 and more. I have performed in Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Iceland, Amsterdam, Germany, and Israel. I am headed to Spain in October 2018 on tour with HPAC, The Ages, and Vox Medusa.

My greatest asset as a singer has been my breadth and diversity of experience.... and THIS is the main foundation of my teaching: to explore the wide range of each voice, to expand our musical interests and knowledge, and to inspire each singer to embrace their own unique sound and sing with deep passion and joy.

Emily is such an amazing teacher who gives you both great life and vocal advice. She is an amazing person who truly cares about you and always wants what’s best for you. I strongly respect her as a teacher and a strong powerful woman. I’ve been taking lessons from Emily for the last 2-3 years and it is definitely a highlight of my week. I’ve improved so much and learned a lot from Emily because she is such a magnificent teacher and mentor. I wouldn’t want to take lessons from anyone else!

Emily is an amazing vocal coach! She allows much flexibility in choosing music you live but that also challenges. Listening to your voice she is able to distinctly tell you what you need to work on and Ashe gives you vocal skills that ou will be able to continue to use and work on for years to come.

Before I met Emily, I didn’t consider myself much of a singer. My voice was very weak, quiet, and poorly supported. I had also convinced myself that I had a very limited range. Emily convinced me of the exact opposite! Her instruction empowered me to validate my vocal journey, find a wealth of confidence, and sing out!

About Dominica
I am a classically trained violist who started out playing violin and piano. I grew up attending Pine Forest, LaVilla, and Douglas Anderson. I was fortunate enough to refine my skills in an orchestral setting daily, where i was able to expand my interests in music production, composing, and world music.

In 2010 I started my tutoring experience, where I taught beginners how to play violin and viola. I regularly held leadership roles in my orchestra, and had to help my section play up to my conductors standards. This ment teaching others one on one and in group sessions.

I am currently in college for music after whiching my major from Biology. My passion for music never faded after graduating, and now I am following my dreams of having a career in making music.
