Vania is an excellent Spanish instructor

I've taken many Spanish lessons that have ranged from various software programs to personal tutors. Vania is great. She knows how to relate with each person in order to convey concepts. She's the best I have worked with.

She's also very accommodating, since I tend to change my schedule around a lot. She is always flexible to accommodate. Vania is simply great.

About Matthew
Hi.. My name is Matt. I'm a very energetic, friendly, understanding & passionate music coach who has worked with students & clientele throughout the US. Possessing more than 25 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

In my musical travels I've networked or shared the stage with many famous NW music legends:
1.) Roger Fisher- Heart-2013 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Inductee
2.) Lynn Sorensen- Paul Rogers/Bad Co/KZOK's Spike & Impalers
3.) Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche/Foghat
4.) Jeff Kathan- Paul Rogers/Bad Company/Montrose
5.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche Singer/Operation Mindcrime
6.) Update - For the last year I have been playing off and on with Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice". Season 3 - Team Blake. He is an incredible music
ian and I'm proud to call him and his manager my friends. His new album coming out is nothing short of amazing.

In fact everyone I've mentioned above are pro all the way and great guys as well. I"m honored to have played with them.

I challenge my students to view music more than just as a "skill", but also a tool to communicate effectively and to combat life's obstacles.

I have had many guitar teachers myself including one true Famous Rock Star legend here in Pacific NW. Congrats Rog. U Earned It, & inspire myself, & others everyday.

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.

But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!

I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.

Bottom Line Is... I can help you learn and progress on your instrument faster...

Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important thing in a lesson with me is to learn while having FUN! I am a very laid-back teacher who wants to focus on music making you smile. We will choose material and a pace of learning that will keep you excited to rehearse and return the following lesson improved!

PERSONALIZE your guitar lessons by learning techniques used by your favorite artists in "their" songs.
FEEL FREE learning in a comfortable atmosphere where you can excel successfully as a musician!
CONQUER shyness and insecurities by unleashing the dynamic performer in you!

Most All Styles/Genres/Experience Levels Taught - We go over everything systematically. Music Theory, Songwriting, Chords, Scales, Determining Key Of Songs, Performance, etc

After 3 to 6 months, you should expect to be playing some of your favorite songs and artists accurately

Be sure to check out some of my you tube demos. Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Sound Proof Pro Recording Studio, PA System, guitars, basses, amps, drums, recording gear, mics, mic stands, strobe & lights, fog machine, seating for parents.

Sorry No Disco Ball Yet.. You Can Bring Your Own If You Want Though.
I've Got Some Bell Bottoms Somewhere Around The Studio Here.

*** Travel Equipment ***
*** Brand New*** Now Offering Music Lessons Online (From My Recording Studio To Your Home via Skype)
I'm really excited to add that to offer lessons online through TakeLessons! It's a great thing to get to work with students all over this country and I'm looking forward to help pioneer the future of music lessons!

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.

My Unique Specialty - is teaching students the rudimental basics 1st, & then how to copy your favorite artists off the CD, radio or iPod, almost note for note. Believe me, it can be done. You just have to know what to listen for..

Brand New - MEASURE your success by recording your music progress along the way. I do own a recording studio, so we can record students progress via audio or video and then post to my YouTube channel.

About Rebekah
Each person has differently-shaped resonating chambers and vocal folds that make up their anatomy. The way the sound resonates inside is what gives each person his or her own unique voice. It takes a voice teacher with a specialized training in what to look and listen for to understand what is a healthy exercise and what is not. I will help you or your child achieve their goals– but also it takes daily practice to achieve desired results. It takes at least three months of training to experience measurable improvement. Please be patient and keep it up!

I help people of all ability levels:

-Improve pitch accuracy and the tone of the voice
-Increase the singing range (low to high)
-Use breath support to increase the volume of the voice
-Release muscle tension during speaking or singing
-Even out the "glitches" when singing throug
h the range
-Improve over all performance and audition presentation
-Learn to read music
-Learn to sing in harmony
-Become more confident onstage and everywhere else
-Access a brighter and bolder speaking voice (ideal for teachers, pastors, and speakers)

Benefits of studying with Rebekah at Ninth Tone Voice Studios:

The lessons will take place in the convenience of your home– so no travel necessary! Rates are competitive. I put my students' success as my first priority. The first lesson will be utilized as an introduction and consultation between the student and myself. With the knowledge attained from the first lesson, I can tailor a curriculum to fit the needs of the student. I give my students the opportunity to perform in city, regional, and state competitions, recitals, and events through my associations with NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) and MTAC (Music Teachers Association of California). These organizations also provide curriculum for the students they can strive to be successful in, and will be an essential stepping–stone to further studies in music, or for their resume in general. Students are able to strive for awards of merit that are recognized on a national level.

My students:

My students have enjoyed solos in choir, lead roles in school musicals and summer programs, solo performance showcases and successfully singing for weddings and other church programs. I have even coached public speakers to achieve a healthier and more vibrant speaking tone. I have proudly helped people become much more accurate with singing on pitch through ear-training methods.

Join My Studio

Again, I am new to the Northern San Diego / Carlsbad area and I am highly motivated to take on new students. I will do my best to challenge, encourage, and push you to achieve a higher level of singing. Please call or email me to set up a time for a lesson.

Rebekah is an outstanding instructor who pushed me out of my perceived limitations with singing. It had been years since my last formal lesson and after talking about goals and pieces we wanted to work on she was able to help cultivate a stronger skill all the while being easy to learn from. I highly suggest anyone looking to learn to sing to give Rebekah a shot! She makes the environment fun, positive and you will sing at levels better than you perceived possible if you are willing to work for it!

Rebekah was an outstanding instructor for our daughter. Our daughter was a bit difficult in the beginning putting 100% effort for the lesson. Rebekah was very keen and navigated her way through the obstacles and motivated her to be prepared and give full effort. Rebekah sets the bar high and gets her students to perform.

Rebekah was a wonderful teacher to me. I have grown children and always had singing lessons on my "bucket list". Although I have no desire to sing professionally, I always wanted to have a better singing voice so I could sing with confidence (and not embarrassment!) while worshiping at church. Rebekah understood my goals and tailored our lessons, her assignments to me and even our song choices to fit my aspirations perfectly. Her patience in moving at the pace I needed showed her maturity despite her younger age and she always provided me with honest and uplifting feedback that raised my belief that I could sing with confidence. Her move Maine is California's loss and the east coast's gain of an effective, kind and lovely instructor and person

Hello, my name is Dan, and it would be a great joy to share with you much of what makes me happy and which can enrich your life, too!

Would you like to learn how to create beautiful images? Learn from the 2008 Grand Prize winner at the Hocking Hills Shoot-the-Hills juried Photography Contest and have much fun refining and organizing your own work in Photoshop and Lightroom

Have you ever wanted to play that tune? You can do that and much more!

Have you ever wanted to know what's _really_ said in that foreign tongue part of a movie or opera? Have fun with languages while spared the school trauma, especially Italian and French, as we watch movies, read the best literature of these cultures and - only if you want - listen to music and enjoy it like the native speakers.

Any subject becomes a joy and an adventure!

After my first lesson I already feel more confident that I will be able to communicate some in Italian while on vacation in Italy. Daniel is an excellent teacher who is very knowledgeable in many languages. He made me feel comfortable right away.
He has a plethora of experiences from living and working abroad. He brought simple techniques/strategies that helped me understand grammar and pronunciation.
I have homework, can't wait for my next lesson. Ciao
