Gregory Valens Luv is a phenomenal vocal coach. He's very detailed in teaching you structure of the body to relax you and open you up for singing. I love his technique. I find myself very relaxed and limber which brings out the best in me. He's very creative and shares various types of vocalizations to help you with every style of music. He's also got a sweet spirit and that makes it very enjoyable to come to class.

About Edwin

Hello! Thank you for your interest in taking guitar/piano/music lessons.

I am a professional teacher/studio musician/performer/producer with over 17 years of private teaching experience and a graduate of the University of Miami Studio Music and Jazz program in 2002 specializing in the guitar.

I am available to teach guitar(acoustic, electric, classical) for all levels, ages, and styles(pop to folk, rock to soul, world to classical) in English, Spanish and Japanese.

Other subjects taught include bass guitar, piano/keyboard, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, harmonium, classical percussion, mu
sic theory, composition(all styles from pop to classical), ear training, and studio production/engineering/mixing.

Born in Cali, Colombia on April 1979, I began my musical endeavors studying the piano at the age of 6. Early on I had the opportunity to play percussion in the school symphony while at the same time developed an intense interest in the instrument that would become my true love, the guitar.

During 1996-98 I studied jazz guitar at the New World School of the Arts music program under the direction of J.B. Dyas and Dr. Roby George. Upon graduation, I was immediately accepted to the University of Miami jazz guitar program under the direction of Randall Dollahan. It was during this time that I also refined my skills as a classical guitarist and as a composer/arranger. In addition, I began passing my knowledge onto friends and eventually began working as a teacher.

My ability to play almost any genre of music is the fruit of past experience playing with an impressive variety of music groups, including jazz combos, symphony orchestras, Andean world music ensembles, and several rock and pop groups as well. As a studio guitarist I have recorded for various artists including Jaci Velasquez, Carlos Ponce, Alexandre Pires, and Noelia.

*** Lesson Details ***
Now also available to teach online video chat lessons through Skype.

Every one of you is unique and there are many possible paths to reach your goals in music.

With my background and music industry experience, I am able to customize my lessons for you so that you can reach your desired goals. We will take some time to find out where your passion lies in music and I will use my experience and knowledge to create a customized lesson-plan that will allow us to focus on reaching your desired goals and at the same time maintain a well rounded music education.

I find this to be key in making the lessons and your practice sessions very enjoyable, fun and laid back - knowing that everything we practice, play and talk about is in line with your goals as a student.

I will also be playing along with you and demonstrating everything that we're working on - music is meant to be shared and played with others and it is important to have that experience of interaction from early on in your lessons.

So whether it's learning to accompany yourself or others, write songs, read music, understand harmony, solo, or just jam out to your favorite songs, you will be well on your way to reaching your goals within 6 months of my lessons.

Look forward to making music with you!

I left a review as many have done at the beginning of my lessons on the site's request. I studied with Edwin for about two years through Skype, and wanted to evaluate the experience after it was completed. Edwin was a very polite and skilled teacher. He taught me many new techniques and different styles of jazz guitar that stick with me still, and which I use every day in my playing. I recommend him to anyone wanting to learn more about playing jazz guitar.

Raymond C.

Los Angeles, CA

Strumming, flamenco rhythm, dance forms

About Raymond

Master Degree in Historical Musicology from The University of London
Master Degree in Music Performance from The University of Arizona
Bachelor Degree in Music Performance San Francisco Conservatory of Music

I have performed in various concert halls and events in the US and over seas. Recently I have been playing flamenco guitar in various dance studios and workshops in Los Angeles. I have been teaching private lessons for a local music school for several years and part time staff at a local University.
I am dedicated teacher and love helping people achieve their musical goals.

*** Les
son Details ***
You can expect a patient teacher who is fairly laid back, but I take music and teaching very seriously. Teaching is my career choice not a temporary job. I try to let my students set the pace of learning, and coach them in arriving to the level they want to reach.

In a typical lesson rhythm/musicality, right n left hand technique, and some type of theory will be taught. In a three to six month period you will be able to play some of the music you love and be able to play melodies by ear on your own. Since children and adults learn differently I use the appropriate style based on age and ability.

*** Studio Equipment ***
living room w/ full length electric piano w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a guitar, chair, music stand, metronome and tuner.
Students should have the same and something to tune their guitar for daily practice. I also have the literature for teaching, but do expect students to get the book we agree upon for study. The only exception could be in Flamenco which is a style not traditionally taught by book.

*** Specialties ***
Pop, Rock, Flamenco, Classical, and Acoustic styles are my specialties and learning to read music on guitar or beginning piano. Teaching to Sing and Play at the same time on guitar.

Generally I use the Carl Orff method: breaking down and vocalizing the rhythm and melody with solfege singing.
Guitar Literature such as Fredrick Noad book 1 to learn to read on guitar
Segovia scale patterns and Mauro Giuliani's 120 Right Hand Studies for technique
Scott Tennant's Pumping Nylon is good for intermediate or older students

Mauricio is a very talented musician. He's friendly, punctual and professional. He's always more than happy to answer my questions. He was also very patient when helping me choose a guitar for my father. Mauricio is currently teaching my father how to play a Nylon Spanish Guitar (beginner). My father loves his lessons with him and always looks forward to the next one. As of now, he's only had 4 lessons, but he's already more confident. I can also see how much my father has learned and improved in such a short amount of time. We will definitely continue guitar lessons with Mauricio and I would recommend him to any age group.

Mauricio has been a perfect fit as a guitar teacher for my ten year old son who, until meeting Mauricio, was totally apathetic about learning an instrument. The list of discared wood winds, strings, & percussion is long... Now my kiddo looks forward to his lessons because of Mauricio. He practices (during the week!!!), and he walks away from his time with Mauricio with the kind of happy grin on his face typically reserved for video games and nachos. Mauricio is ever punctual, solicitous, accommodating, friendly, and kind. We feel very lucky to have him in our lives and couldn't recommend him more highly to others.

Russel was an amazing instructor. He's probably the nicest most patient guy you can get, and learning to play the guitar was an amazing experience all because of him. I am so glad that I was able to be his student and learn to play from him.

Oh my God! This guy is the most incredible guy in the music business. He taught me the best way to use pro tools and just different vocal techniques and the amazing way of mixing sounds and vocals! He also started teaching me to play the piano. There is nothing this guy can't do I would be lost without him! Music for me would never be the same if I hadn't met Russell! Thank you God for creating this man he is truly the best!

Russell is an amazing guitar teacher! He continuously makes the guitar lessons with my son fun and exciting which is extremely important for an active 9 year old. Russell is a patient and dedicated teacher. My son took a couple of lessons with another teacher prior to Russell and was not inspired to continue with his lessons. With Russell, my son is motivated and excited to demonstrate his progress. He has started to venture into drafting his own lyrics and matching them to guitar chords. As a parent, it is very rewarding to see your child take such interest in an instrument, in part due to his great guitar teacher.
