Janice has instructed our 10 year old daughter for about a year. When we began lessons, our daughter had no experience with piano. A year later, our daughter loves playing and says that Janice is patience, kind and motivating. Janice is professional, yet personable and relates well to her student. We are very pleased with Janice and would highly recommend her.

Jason M.

San Diego, CA

About Jason

TakeLessons.com Instructor since 2005, Jason M. is now available for online lessons worldwide featuring multiple-camera angles and a share screen experience leaving no stone un-turned!

Jason has been playing guitar for over 15 years and teaching music since 1996. Although trained in standard teaching methods, he has developed his own method of teaching to positively enhance the student€™s strength, dexterity, ear-training, memorization and techniques. His goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician.

This year Jason was also the M
usic Director at the National Guitar Workshop Day Jams Rock Music Day Camp where students ages 7-15 came out to form bands, record original material and master their craft. He also taught beginning to advanced guitar/ vocals/ performance and songwriting as hosted a recording clinic at the end of each day.

Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason has been transcribing for guitar and bass since the age of 18 and since then has become a master of the craft including both 5 line staff and tablature, hand-crafted exercises and deconstructions to better enhance the students learning. Artists and genres that Jason has experience with range from Classic Rock, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Guns N' Roses, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Robert Johnson, Pierce the Veil, Paramore, All Time Low, Demi Lava to, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Pantera, Avenged Sevenfold, The White Stripes, Green Day, Old Crow Medicine Show, Taylor Swift, Mumford and Sons, Bruno Mars, Rob Zombie, John 5, Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine, Van Morrison, the Beatles, AC/DC, ZZ-Top, Bullet For My Valentine, All That Remains, Ozzy, Black Label Society, Sublime, Aerosmith, At the Drive In, Type O Negative, the Black Keys, the Pixies, the Toadies, Black Sabbath, Jason Mraz, Lady GaGa, John Mayer and Journey.

Jason attended the University of Alaska, Anchorage where his degree is in Music and Business. He is constantly continuing his education with music theory courses as well as private guitar instruction. He attends guitar workshops and seminars by artists such as John5 and Kerry King who are known as some of the worlds finest guitar players. He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

Another nice feature that you might enjoy from one on one sessions with Jason is learning the ability to craft and record your own songs using state of the art technology that caters to your own unique personality. There are no limits!

Jason teaches all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced as well as artists that are signed to labels.

Local news outlet Fox 5 did a segment with one of his students who overcame issues with ADD and depression as a result of taking guitar lessons.

His students advance quickly, some have released albums, been in Guitar World Magazine as well as its online companion and won awards for their music websites.

Jason is a professional and exceptional.

With his ability to teach guitar, drums, keyboard, and also songwriting, my hyper 5 year old is never board. I'm not interested right now in pushing one instrument over the other. I just want her to be "exposed" to different instruments, develop an ear for music, see how she can take her lyrics (budding songwriter, with her singing her day all the time), and enhance it with an instrument. Jason can do all that, because he has the knowledge, but he's also very FLEXIBLE and can easily transition from one insturment and teaching method to another, depending on where a young student's mind and interests take them in any given moment.

Learning to play traditionally/classically, slowly, methodically, step-by-step, learning formal music theory, doing drills and so forth is awesome, and Jason can do that. However, if you want to learn to play for fun, and begin jamming sooner than later...he's definately your man.

Aaron P.

Apple Valley, CA

About Aaron

As a 15-year-old teen I was headed nowhere. I had no interests and was failing my freshman year of high school. Then I started playing the guitar and fell in love with music. As I studied under my dad, who was a professional musician, my mind started to open up, my attention span grew. My problem solving skills and comprehension improved to such a degree that my grades went up to the honor level. Since I ended up graduating with a 4.0, I preach and stress the importance of learning a musical instrument.
I got into teaching only 4 years after I first picked up the guitar and immediately found
that it was what I wanted to do for a living. Oh sure! Playing in bands is fun but I enjoy seeing my students grow in and with music most of all. Having over 20 years’ experience as a professional musician and teacher. I have been teaching exclusively in the High Desert area for the last 16 years. I started at a music store in Apple Valley called Hi Note Music then taught at Tom's for 14 years. Now I teach at Rollover Beethoven's Music store in Hesperia and out of my studio in Apple Valley.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach almost any style of music including Rock, Jazz, Blues, Classical, Country and R&B. I stress the fundamentals: technique, reading, theory, ear training but in addition, I will give you all the licks and tricks you want. The important thing is to develop good habits because bad habits take a long time to overcome. I will provide you with the tools to play anything your heart desires and the ability to teach yourself.

*** Studio Equipment ***
separate studio w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Have portable sound system and lap top computer. All the student needs are their instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I have written methods that I have found to work very well in teaching the student all aspects of music and how to apply it towards the instrument. My methods include the essentials in reading, finger exercises, theory, and ear training. I like to prepare my students for any and all genres. The key is to teach the student how to teach themselves.

Billy C.

Azusa, CA

About Billy

I have been playing piano and guitar whilst performing for 8 years though I'm not short of experience. I went to Citrus College to perfect my guitar and piano playing and musicianship where I was moved to top of my class. I have been on tour with California's top cover group Night Shift going such places as Hawaii and numerous states for music festival performance and have been a hired musician for numerous groups for both recording and performing. I have musical knowledge in rock, blues, jazz, R&B, pop, salsa, reggae, funk, country, and many other genres. But enough about my knowledge. Let me
tell you about me: I love music. It's my passion and I've made a career out of what I do and love it. What I want to teach you are the skills that will allow you to continue to become more creative and precise but covering not only technique and theory, but why we choose certain things that sound and feel good and thus feeling beyond rewarded for what we've learned.

I'll cover soloing, learning chords, strumming, performing songs, learning songs, theory, technique, and multiple things you can come up with. And I promise I won't hit you with a ruler... We don't need a ruler for music anyways.

Ultimately, I feel lucky to be able to do what I do and I want to share it with you. That rhymes.

*** Lesson Details ***
I cover soloing,piano and guitar rhythms, learning chords, technique, theory, I do multiple genres as well and I do this all in a very progressive and interactive way that most of my students find fun and help the learning process. And I'm great with kids.

*** Studio Equipment ***
1979 Fender stratocaster guitar, Ibanez Hollowbody guitar, Yamaha MO6 keyboard, and numerous minor equipment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
1997 Geo Prizm.. very reliable

*** Specialties ***
My specialties include Pop, Rock, Funk, Indie, Jazz, and R&B. I'm also fluent in Country, Reggae, Ska, Electronic and Soul.

As an expert in my field, I look forward to helping new students achieve their goals.

What Are the Best Songs to Sing to Show Off Your Vocal Range?
Many singing teachers agree that one of the most alarming things today is tuning in to television talent competitions and seeing nine-year-olds singing opera. Not only are the arias generally age-inappropriate, but they make vocal demands on the singer that often requires a training period longer than the child has been alive! Less publicly, but equally common, are singers who wrong-foot themselves with inappropriate repertoire at local singing competitions and music festivals. They might pick
