*** Lesson Details ***
More lesson times may be available. Please call if other arrangements are needed.**

-- The most important thing to know about lessons with Aaron is that you will receive a customized experience tailored to fit your musical desires and goals. He will work to understand your desires in music, and will use existing materials and generate new materials to challenge you and help them you reach your goals.

Some common goals Aaron has worked with are:
- Preparing for an Audition
- Starting a band with friends
- Learning music for a school band/percussion ensemble
- Personal enrichment/ better understanding of music
- Exploring career possibilities
- Improving technical ability

**** Aaron's guiding principles are: 1. Music is vitally useful and Important in society! Music brings joy to the multitude, and enhances expression for its artists.

2. Anyone can be a musician! Every student has unlimited potential, and it is Aaron's desire to unlock that potential, allowing my students to succeed in music.

3. Music should be fun! Too many instructors stick to the gritty business of method books. While this has its place, Aaron knows that it is only a small part of music. Music is meant to be fun, and Aaron makes the learning process fun and exciting at every stage by incorporating the interests of his students.

4. Hard work should always be rewarded! Aaron is always positive with his students and celebrates their accomplishments continually.

5. Music is what you make it! Whatever your desires and goals in music, Aaron will help you to achieve them. All musical aspirations are valid and valuable. Whether you want to be a rock star, a concert timpanist or just to make music with friends and family, he will equip you with the tools you need to get there.

6. Proper technique and musical knowledge empower musicians! Whatever your goals, starting with good technique and understanding the music you play will keep you from injury and promote your success.

7. Listening is vital to understanding music! Aaron's students listen to and analyze recordings of music they like to gain insight and understanding to how the music works. Aaron encourages his students to play along with recordings to work on the organic elements of music which cannot be gained from dry academic study. Guitarists will start with either an acoustic guitar or electric guitar & practice amp. They will also need a metronome, tuner, and notebook. They will learn to read music, tablature, and chord symbols, and they will learn to play melodies, riffs, and chords in the style(s) they prefer.

-- Bass Guitarists will start with a bass guitar and an amp. They will also need a metronome, tuner, and notebook. They will learn to read music and tablature and play bass grooves and solos in the style(s) they prefer. Drummers and percussionist will generally start with a pair of sticks and a practice pad, learning the basic techniques of drumming for the first 6-12 weeks, and will move on to drum set or percussion instruments as they demonstrate proper technique. They will also need a metronome and notebook. They will learn to read and play music in the style(s) they prefer.

We chose Aaron for his great resume at first, once we started the lesson we knew the one hour commute each way was well worth it. Aaron's knowledge and patients are top notch, And my sons enthusiasm for The drums has grown with each lesson. Thank you Aaron for all your hard work.

Austin Y.

Milpitas, CA

About Austin

Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently finishing my last semester at San
Jose State University, interning at a church in Milpitas, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple yet profound way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin Ying
