Mark L.

Las Vegas, NV

You will be guided by me through method books and also use supplemental materials I create to help you advance. You will learn the basic 5 positions of the instrument to increase your sounding range. You will learn orchestra skills including following a conductor and articulation and intonation, styles of expression, and rhythm. I have been teaching violin for 7 years. My students have won seats in school orchestras and spots in various music schools. I want to be your next instructor.

About Mark

I teach according to your individual needs. I help you become successful on piano, violin, viola, bass, guitar. I help you learn the instrument and learn to read music with my own ideas using fun worksheets and songs you really like to learn how to play. I fill your voids with activities such as practice techniques, sub-lessons, and ear training. I guide you toward proper posture, tone development, and the ability to keep a steady beat. I help you develop your musical independence by tweaking lessons to help you succeed. I believe talent is not a factor in learning. Mastering an instrument is
the result of effective instruction and step by step guidance toward foundations and skills. I love to teach private lessons because I believe in spreading the word to make the great gift of playing music available to many. It is an inherited right and gift to enjoy a lifetime of personal satisfaction from playing a musical instrument. I love to help students build confidence and make progress. I help them problem solve by going through problems with them. I teach "how to think" and how to become a life long learner of the instrument. I love the challenge of finding ways to help students become successful at every step of the way. I am excited and enthused to be apart of student progress. I am influenced by many 20th Century performers including Van Cliburn, Oscar Peterson, George Shearing, Erroll Garner, Yudi Menuhin, Issac Stern and Horowitz among others. I am passionate in my teaching about providing an effective solution to my student's needs.

I am a professional educator who works with children and has the patience to help them. I am a performer who has over 30 years of public experience in solo playing as well as ensemble work. I have performed at Nordstrom for nine years, and performed at many private functions. I have performed classical as well as jazz music as part as my performance experience. I have taught private lessons for a total of nine years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in personalizing your approach to the strangeness of the instrument. You need to learn much about posture, and proper tone production within the first year. Method books are not "how to" books. You need a teacher to guide you toward becoming familiar with the instrument. You also need to learn how to listen to the sounds you make as you play. To develop "musical independence" you need to become musically literate, develop tone production skills, and internalize a steady beat. Rhythm and tone are basic concepts that must be mastered to maximize pleasure in playing your instrument. Learning how to problem solve is another skill I teach so you can help yourself toward progress.
I believe in using the instrument in daily activities such as playing "Happy Birthday" at family get together. Christmas Songs or Hanukkah Songs can bring much joy during December family parties.
A musician in the house brings much joy during holidays and celebrations; and the families are brought closer together. Memories are created and last forever. Playing an instrument is exciting and expresses what can not be said using words. I believe in teaching students based on their strengths, and building upon them. I am excited to help you learn!!

You can advance quickly if you are taught to listen to yourself and use common sense, and make sense of the music theory I will teach you.I will guide you every step of the way to understand how music works. Music lessons are fun and enjoyable. I am pleased to guide you through your learning every step of the way. My students in Las Vegas have had much success with my teaching and guidance. I will succeed where others fail. You will reap the benefits of my professional instruction.

Mark did great! My daughter really did a great job on her first lesson. Mark is very patient and knows how to make a little kid like mine to listen to him..what an incredible teacher! but the location from where I live is very far...but it's all worth it.

Bruce S.

Boulder City, NV

I teach beginning and intermediate violin. I use a great method book if the student needs one I can supply one. I teach both young people and adults. I use music that
has a play-along CD. Every one loves this type of learning method.

About Bruce

I received my degree from the University of Utah in instrumental music education. Along with specialized training in band and orchestra instruments, I also offer lessons in guitar, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica in playing and performance. When a student has a song they want to learn, I focus lessons around the requested song. I also have an extensive library of songs that I utilize. My music methodology is built around a song book that also has a CD attached. This has proven to be a lot of fun for all my students. It makes practice time more fun as they "play along" with the CD.

With folk instruments I start by teaching the student basic chords and basic chord sequences.
In the beginning I stress the proper hand position and I spend some time perfecting the best finger position. This eliminates a lot of problems that will come up later. For the first songs I teach them songs that use those same chords and chord sequences. Soon after that I teach them how to read music. This is vital to being able to play lead on any folk instrument. As the student progresses he or she is exposed to many different styles of music I also will teach several different picking and strumming patterns. .The student is also taught about more advanced chord progressions and music theory that can be used in any situation.

For brass instruments I teach techniques in developing breath control and embouchure development. Attention to these details will eliminate problems that could come up in the future. The student will learn how to read music from the start. As the student develops these basic techniques I begin working on tone development and breath support. As the student progresses he or she will be exposed to many different musical styles.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room: Instruments, bookshelves, open space, additional seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can rent a guitar/banjo.
I can provide an amplifier.
I can provide PA and analog recording equipment.

*** Specialties ***
Developed method for teaching very young students as well as adolescents and adults.

My 11 year-old daughter has been taking lessons for about one year. She enjoys her lessons and always looks forward to the next one.

Bruce is a skilled musician who's not only encouraging of her development, but also very patient and indulgent with her whimsical personality. Bruce's wife, Diane, always has a treat (many homemade) available after each lesson.

I highly recommend his services.

Yunior Lopez F.

Henderson, NV

About Yunior

**CORRECTION - I'm currently accepting students ages 7 and up

Welcome to my page! My name is Yunior L. and I'm a versatile musician who enjoys a diverse music career as a teacher, performer, and collaborator. I've been lucky enough to share the stage with some of the world's foremost classical and jazz musicians, as well as work with the next generation of artists.

My main method of teaching revolves around habits, inspiration, and motivation. Whether we realize it or not, most of what we do in life are revolves around habits. If you're a beginner I'll guide you through proper setups an
d positions that work for you and your body, and will give you you exercises to help your muscles classify them as habits. To add, we'll also work on note reading and sound production, and you'll be playing in no time.

For those students in the intermediate to advanced levels - we'll analyze what stage you are with the instrument and where you want to go. My career revolves around performance at a professional level, and I've played music from a variety of genres, styles, and difficulty. I'll be sure to help you advance and get to where you want to go.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is different and have very different goals when it comes to music. Some will want to pursue it professionally and others just want to enjoy being a part of something special. With that said, I'll do my best to guide you to where you want to go. In addition, you'll never be short of my casual vibe, laughter, motivation, and patience.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide some technique and/or sheet of music, but can also recommend what and where to purchase. Students need their own music stands and instruments.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Pop, New Music, Chamber Music

OK. So Yunior was recommended to me by a friend who after having 2 previous violin teachers, couldn't play anything if his life depended on it. A month after he started his lessons with Yunior he was doing things his previous teachers couldn't get him to do. I decided to give him a try and can't be more happy to write this review.....

#1, this guy is a miracle worker. You can walk into a lesson sounding terribly (I'm very guilty of that), but by the time you walk out he's fixed all your problems. The best part of it all is how he teaches you to TEACH YOURSELF and how to practice at home.

#2, he can actually play his instrument. Why do I say that? Well, my previous teacher could play but it was nothing like listening to Yunior. He demonstrates and everything just sounds so perfect and effortless. It makes you want to work hard and play just like him.

#3, he's a cool guy with a great sense of humor. He likes to talk but fixing things is his thing. And I always ask him to play something for me at the end of each lesson and I'm just left in awe. I highly recommend him!

Victoria W.

North Las Vegas, NV

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to play more advanced music. I specialize in classical, typically use 'Essential Elements and other books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: rosin, music stand, tuner, books(for use during lesson). I love working with students of all ages and I can't wait to meet you!

About Victoria

I have been teaching ever since 2012 and have a lot of experience teaching students of all different types. I love music and enjoy showing others how to play. I am very enthusiastic about helping students achieve their music goals; and as we used to say in high school, "Flexibility is our middle name". I learned cello and violin in middle school and have loved playing them ever since. I currently play cello in a local band, and I have been for a few years now. Many of the students I've taught ranged from 3 years old all the way up to adults.

My daughter starter violin lessons with Victoria when she was 3 years old. She is now 5 years old. I highly recommend Victoria to give lessons. I have referred my friends to her. She is very mature, patient with kids, and prepares very good practice material for home. My daughter has learning to play violin and she is also teaching her how to read music. My daughter is actually enjoying it too and stays focused for the lesson too. She is affordable and reliable and works really good with young children.
