I enjoy performing covers of songs and writing original music on guitar, and I'm happy to help my students with accompaniment! I will show you how to play basic guitar rhythms and chord progressions. We will also cover ear training and music theory. After we go over some technique, I will teach you how to play your favorite songs, and show you how to compose your own music!

About Allie
I believe that training your voice in a healthy way is key to becoming a successful singer! I'm happy to help you with any goals that you have, and we'll create a lesson plan that works especially for you! I teach all levels of students from beginners to professional performers. I have successfully prepared students for auditions, and many of my students have been accepted to prestigious performing arts high schools and conservatories.

I've always had a passion for singing, and I began performing at a young age in community theater productions! As a singer/songwriter, I perform regularly around New York City with my band.

While studying at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, I performed as the lead vocalist in several performance ensembles, including The Art Blakey Ensemble and The Brazilian Jazz Ensemble. These ensemb
les were directed by world renowned jazz musicians.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very dedicated to teaching and performing all different styles of music! I begin all lessons with vocal technique, and I teach a wide range of repertoire including Jazz, Pop, Rock and Musical Theater!

Finding songs that are meaningful to you will have a strong impact on an audience, and can be life changing for you as a singer!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard at my studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
At a student's home I would need a keyboard or piano to be provided.

*** Specialties ***
I have assisted students in preparation for Performing Arts High Schools, and College conservatory auditions. I am also certified in Somatic Voicework.

After having a basic knowledge of the instrument I cater the lesson towards your individual goals.

About Jon
I have been playing guitar since the age of 9. I have studied Classical, and Jazz at CCM's Prep Dept. in middle school and throughout high school as well as rock, folk, country etc. with other local teachers. I started teaching lessons at the age of 18 in local music stores and have never stopped. While doing this I attended The College of Mount St. Joseph where I studied Classical and Jazz guitar as well as Music Ed. In addition to my 22 years of private lesson experience, I have 2 years of classroom experience teaching general music in elementary schools. I believe it is my years as a student and instructor that enable me to be an effective teacher, having had learned what worked for me as a student, and what has shown to work as a teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
I cater my lesson to the individual. I like for students to have
a structured practice routine and working knowledge of music and their instrument, but it has to be fun. I have students who learn Classical, rock, and Jazz. Each lesson is different. Some people just want to be able to play their favorite songs by a camp fire, and others want to go on to perform at Carnegie Hall. I enjoy teaching both lessons and put forth the same enthusiasm for each one. You get out of the guitar or bass what you put into it in terms of learning and practicing. The level of achievement is up to you, I will help guide you to meet your goals regardless of how large or small they are.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Spare music room: guitars, amps, bass; computer with recording software, ProTools seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have all the equipment necessary. I would like the student to have an instrument, but if not I can provide one for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I'm really pretty versatile. Over 18 years of teaching anywhere from 80 to 100 students a week will do that.

Jon is a great teacher. He is very patient with my 8 year old and has been very flexible in working with us if we need to reschedule. He makes sure that she continues to build her basic skills (musical notation, playing techniques, etc.) while also making it fun by using current songs. He is amazing- would highly recommend him!

Students can expect to learn at an easy and thorough pace. With my lessons, you can take your time no rush. I will work with every student one on one. Each lesson will be well planned and organized, but also it will be fun. If you don't understand something, I will work so that you do understand it. There is no pressure in learning. You can work at your own pace. Looking forward to working with each and everyone of you.

About Tanesha
Hello There!

Prices have been recently updated!

If you are under the age of 18, please have a parent or guardian book the lessons for you.

My name is Tanesha. I have been playing guitar for a little over 7 years now. I am a self taught guitarist. Guitars have always been a passion of mine, ever since I could remember. I was always drawn to learn more on guitars and one day decided to teach myself. I wanted to teach myself to play so that I can develop my own teaching style, as well as my own methods of teaching. When you are an absolute beginner and you look to learn from other people, their way of teaching can be a little challenging. But with my teaching style it is more broken down. I understand the struggles and difficulties that comes with learning guitar, that's; why I am here to break it down and teach as clea
rly as possible. I am a very caring person, I love to help others and love to see them improve daily. My main goal is for all of my students to learn and benefit from my teaching. I love when students are excited and eager to learn more. Putting effort is very important in order to succeed. if you don't put effort, it will not work.

You can expect to learn the following things:
-Parts of the Guitar
-Song Tutorials
-Picking Patterns
-Strumming Patterns
-Notes on the Guitar
-Chords
-Tablature
-Pentatonic Scales
and Much More!

Do you want to learn to play your favorite song? Work on rhythm technique? or gain a better understanding for music or composition? I have 15 years experience playing Acoustic Guitar and would love to share some of my knowledge with you!

About Kat
I'm a singer songwriter and have worked as a full time musician for the last 13 years. I graduated from Auckland University with Bachelor's of Performing Arts Majoring in jazz vocals, and am currently teaching at Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Music brings me such joy I hope to bring that to our classes and help you grow in a fun and encouraging way!

Currently I still primarily work as a full time musician so I will only be teaching part time. I am finishing and working on releasing my fourth studio album and play shows regularly both in and out of town. I was signed to Sony and Avex in Japan from 2007-2010 and still tour Japan once a year and spend much of my time in the studio writing songs for commercials and other artists.

I usually teach my clients at their home or online through skype but depending on the time can also make the
home studio available. I work with singers, guitarists, and songwriters in a wide age range, assorted skill levels with a variety of musical goals.

I can teach you how to sing with better technique, how to play acoustic guitar and the Ukulele and how to write songs and performance technique in the studio and on stage as a vocalist. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

I have been playing guitar in various capacities for over 40 years. I have taught beginners and intermediate students for the last 8 years. What ever your desires are relating to guitar, be it learning to play songs from a song book, learning to figure songs out by ear, improve your current playing abilities, I can help! And make it fun!

I have taught students ranging in age from 8 yrs old, to adults in their 50s. If you enjoy music, and want to dive deeper into it, just to play for your own enjoyment, or, if you have an itch to learn to play in a band or jam with some friends, I can get you there!!

About Andy
I started playing guitar in the late 60s. Started playing professionally for approximately 5 years around 1978. Played music off and on until 1993 when I got involved with my churches worship band. Began teaching around at Sidekick Studios in 2008.

I teach beginners and intermediate students of all types, from 9 yr olds wanting to play Taylor Swift songs to 55 yr old guys wanting to learn blues and rock. I can play and teach a variety of styles including country, pop, rock, blues, folk and introduction to jazz.

I get the most satisfaction when a student latches on to an idea and runs with it, or when a student thinks they can't do something and together we work and accomplish it!

I am going into my TENTH year of teaching and plan on being around a long while!

Also, I am currently playing in an acoustic rock duo and also
enjoy playing solo acoustic gigs at small venues around town.

Our son was a student of Andy's for 5+ years and truly enjoyed his experience with Andy. Andy is a very patient and an inspiring instructor who really knows music and guitar well! Andy was always good about being available for our son during the week if he had questions about his homework or guitar lesson for the week! Andy always praised our son when needed and challenged him in a professional manner to increase his love of the instrument!

Andy started teaching Pranav at age 6. Pranav took lessons from Andy for over 8 years. Andy has a wonderful encouraging style. He knows when to be firm and when to be kind. We moved to China, otherwise we would still be there every Saturday :) when we return in the summer, Andy is always on our list of people to visit.

I love to help my students start playing right away with something simple, and as soon as they are able, I have them play songs in the genre and style they are truly interested in. I taught myself about the guitar, and have been learning through live performances as a full time musician for the past two years. I have a great working knowledge of what it really takes to make a career out of music.

About Lisa
I'm a blues singer songwriter, and I've been performing and teaching full time since 2015. You can hear my album Picnic on all music services. People like my music and my teaching style because its simple, but soulful. Please feel free to ask me any questions!

I'm an extremely passionate educator and performer with over 20 years playing experience and 17 years teaching experience. I have toured and recorded with national acts in which our music was showcased and featured on major motion picture and video game soundtracks. For the past 15 years, I have a built a reputation of instructing the best "up and coming" drummers in the Tri-sate area. Most recently, my guitar program has created a huge buzz throughout the local communities as well. Hence, my impact on the local music scene has been a tremendous one. I'm educated in all styles of music, and my teaching program has been admired and awarded by producing students who now teach and perform professionally. In addition, I managed every music studio I taught at until I opened up my own where I managed and taught for 7 years before relocating to Las Vegas.
