John G.

Spring Valley, CA

About John

I am a 34 year old Trumpet, French Horn and Voice Instructor in the Ramona area. I have 24 years experience playing trumpet, French Horn and Singing and play in several groups around the
San Diego area including:
The Amalgamated, a Ska/Reggae Band
Full Strength Funk Band
Heartland Brass Ensemble
Trumpets R Us
Filarmonica Portuguesa Uniao De San Diego
Tierrasanta Lutheran Church,
Ramona High School Trumpet and French Horn Coach

I am very passionate about music, from learning to teaching, practicing, performing and recording. Every day my goal is to promote music, learn, prac
tice and help people enjoy music either by listening or performing.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will start with good solid warm-up exercises focusing on breathing and proper technique for Brass playing.
The 2nd part of lessons will be technique, Scales and method books for trumpet and french horn.
The last part of lessons will be working on Solo repertoire and learning songs for performance, sight reading, playing duets and learning jazz improvisation if interested. Lessons will include sight reading, play along/sing along CD's Scales and technique as well as theory.

For my Trumpet Students I use Herbert L. Clarke Technical Studies Book to help improve aerobic endurance, technical and finger velocity as well as production of good tone quality. I will also use the Earl Irons Group of 27 exercises as well as the Max Schlossberg Method to help improve air flow, breathing control and fluidity of sound throughout all registers. I also use the J. B. Arban's Conservatory method for other techniques including scales, double and triple tonguing, intervals as well as duets and solo repertoire.
For jazz minded students I will start with basic fundamentals of improvisation including melodic improv, Blues forms and blues scales as well as reading through chord changes and playing in several modes and other scales used in jazz.

For my French Horn Students I will use the same technique books as Trumpet but learning traditional French Horn Solo repertoire, as well as Brass quintet/choir repertoire and orchestral and concert repertoire. Focus for French Horn students will be mainly on control of partials and tuning techniques.

For my Voice students I will start with good breathing technique and warm up exercises designed to get the vocal chords warmed up and get all the other muscles relaxed in order to produce great tone quality. Focus will be on intonation, and learning to use the air and support to extend the vocalists range higher and lower as well as gain power and confidence in singing.
Each Vocal student will have a piece to practice or will bring a piece of their choosing in that they would like to learn and this will be used to apply the techniques learned at the beginning of lessons. Styles of singing that I sing and can teach are Classical, Jazz, Big Band and Standards, Oldies, Pop, Country, Soul, Rock, R&B, Christian Rock and Church Music and also harmonizing like in a duet style or choir/vocal ensemble setting. I will also teach performance techniques, showmanship, stage presence and the overall performance package every singer needs to have confidence while singing.

I am a classically trained musician on Trumpet, French Horn and Voice and reading music, articulations, dynamics and learning musical forms is an essential part to any performers success. I also have studied various jazz styles and improvisational techniques as well. I want to teach students the basics of good musicianship and help them to excel in learning, practicing and performing in their own selected styles of music, whether its classical music, or jazz/rock/pop/country and any other styles students are interested in.

*** Studio Equipment ***

My main teaching location is at the Ramona Music Center in downtown Ramona for students in the area. I have all items needed including music stands, CD player for play along programs as well as an upright piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When traveling I can bring my own personal music stand and electric keyboard with stand as well. Technique and song repertoire and theory books I can provide when needed.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Jazz, Reggae, Ska, Pop, Rock, Hard Rock, Funk, Soul, R&B, Blues, Church/Worship.

Alex M.

Bonita, CA

About Alex

I am passionate about sharing with you all the knowledge that I've obtained from over 45 years of of studying piano with some of the best teachers available in the country. I will help you to both discover that sound image that is only yours and then to work on how to make that image come alive for you at the keyboard. I promise that working together will be a fun and inspiring adventure into that most expressive form of communications which is Music. One of the best ways to judge a teacher is by the way he plays. I am a performing teacher, still studying, and will be giving my second solo rec
ital at The Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad in February 2013 and will be playing masterpieces by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin and Liszt. You are, of course, invited to the recital or it would be my pleasure to play for you at my studio or your home. Looking forward to sharing and learning more about our craft by spending some quality musical time with one another.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am considered to be a easy going guy but it is my job to be sure that value is obtained from investment, so I will let my students know when they are not completing their reasonable assignments. That said, I can't wait to share with you all the joys I feel about teaching. I didn't know anything about the piano at age 21 but seven years later I gave my Senior Recital and earned my BA degree with a Piano Major so I know how difficult it can be to start lessons as well as being able to advance at any level. We will learn how to understand basic theory to include notation, intervals, chord structure, scales and arpeggios and well as to learn or improve your ability to sight read without having to continually look down at your hands. All technical problems will be understood and solved so that you will be able to play those pieces you love at your ability level. Being able to play with a firm knowledge of a composer's life, his composition style and historical background is a sure sign of one that has studied with a fine teacher. It is my hopes that that teacher will be me. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Anna P.

Spring Valley, CA

About Anna

I grew up in a musical home with a piano teacher for a parent. Consequently, I started learning piano and singing at a young age, and then began taking voice lessons in high school. For the last 19 years I have been studying voice and loving every minute of it! I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and Music Teacher's Association of California. I have a bachelor's degree in music education from Bob Jones University, and a master's degree in Vocal Performance from Azusa Pacific University. I also studied for 2 summers during college with a master teacher. Over the ye
ars I have performed and worked with both children's choirs and adult choirs and given private concerts. My enthusiasm for music has spilled over into a love for teaching. I have taught private voice lessons for the last 8 years to students ranging in age from 5 to 50+. Some have been beginner students, and others were seasoned singers who wanted some refreshers and guidance. My forte is classical music but I have also worked with Broadway, Sacred, and Pop. I enjoy teaching beginning to intermediate piano as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
For me, the most important key to success in music is consistency in lessons and in practice. I will work hard with my students to help them find a practice schedule that fits with their current activities and will help them reach their goals as a musician. Our lesson times will include theory and technique to help them gain skills and confidence and become well-rounded musicians. We can also prepare for any upcoming solos or auditions. I love music and I want my students to gain that same enthusiasm and excitement. I am a strong believer in positive reinforcement so my students will receive lots of praise and encouragement from me. Sometimes we might work hard to reach a specific goal, but we will have fun along the way. Depending on the course of study (piano or singing) I would expect the student to buy 1- 3 music books that we would work from.

Amanda O.

Lakeside, CA

About Amanda

Hello everyone! My name is Amanda O., and I am a Harpist, Voice teacher, Therapeutic Musician, Life Coach, Alternative Medicine Practitioner, and Vocalist who has over 21 years of experience as a classical vocalist and performer. By 9 years old, I began training as an opera singer and have merged my love of classical vocals with the therapeutic harp. I am currently a full-time Dean's list student at San Diego State University, pursuing my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. I graduated from the International Harp Therapy Program as a Certified Therapeutic Harp Practitioner and have completed an
internship at Apreva Hospice. I have experience playing therapeutic harp music at over 30 different facilities around San Diego, such as Narzerath House, Bay View, Bella Vista, Monte Vista Village, and La Mesa Health Care Center, as well as making In-Home visits. These include independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care facilities around SD! I also have experience playing for the actively dying for hospice and consider it an honor to be of musical assistance for people in transition.

I love to teach and can make my harp and voice lessons unique to each individual based on their current skill level. I love watching people expand and grow through music. Your lessons will be engaging, compassionate, fun, and organized! Each lesson will encourage you to become excited about your musical growth and inspire you to continue. I offer something unusual for a harp teacher in that I can teach both improvisation and music theory for the harp. This means that you will get the best of both worlds!

I also have obtained education from the Self-Heal School of Herbal Studies here in San Diego, where I have learned about herbal medicine. I am well versed in many alternative therapies (such as E.F.T., meditation, therapeutic music, Ayurvedic medicine, amino acid therapy, etc.) and can provide compassion, understanding, and strategies for alleviating suffering as a Life Coach. My education towards my Master's degree in Psychology also helps me increase my understanding of the human condition and offer additional support for anxiety, depression, addiction, and other stresses. I believe that everyone deserves to live a life of freedom, safety, comfort, and relaxation. I hope to provide loving assistance for anyone seeking someone who cares and will put in the time to truly listen and offer advice.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and please let me know how I can be of service to you!

Amanda is a perfect fit for my online harp instruction. I have a very busy schedule and she is able to help me make the most of my practice and lesson times. She is an excellent and very flexible teacher, working with you to achieve your goals for the instrument - classical or improvisational, or both. I am looking forward to learning more about the therapeutic application of the harp in my field of integrative medicine.

About Souaad

Hello there, curious musician to be!

I am a competitive individual and I like to challenge and to be challenged. I started playing violin when I was 10 and have performed with several Honors Orchestras, mariachis, as well as some professional groups. My Junior and Senior year of high school I was honored to be Concertmaster.

I began my classical vocal training at San Diego State University in Spring of 2012. I was trained as a Soprano and an Alto because of my coachability, and versatility. Since then I have worked with several talented and dynamic directors throughout my training expe
rience. I have attended the annual San Diego Summer Choral Festival under the direction of Dr. Patrick Walders, which consisted of an intensive choral training weekend followed by performances. I am also part of a growing professional choir in San Diego called Pro Arte Voices, which recently debuted its first CD in December '14 (!!). Lastly, I am a strong advocate for the arts in our community and am very proud to be a teacher. In the near future I have plans of developing a music program for underprivileged youth, which would incorporate choir, orchestra and band. I look forward to making music with you soon :)
