We are so thankful we found Patrick! Patrick is a very effective teacher who’s able to relate and motivate students. Our daughter was loosing interest in playing piano due to her former teacher’s approach. Now she’s back to practicing because she wants to and is so excited to see Patrick each week. We are very greatful that she’s back to loving piano and continuing to learn.

Patrick is a great teacher, and very patient. I've never learned how to sing or read music before, and he teaches at a pace that's good for me. I highly recommend him whether you're an adult or you're considering enrolling your child.

About Max
I love to teach. I currently teach middle school and high school music electives at TREE Academy in West Hollywood as well as 1-on-1 music lessons at The Music Castle in Santa Monica. For my private students, I will come to you.
I started tutoring while earning my Music Engineering degree (B.S.) from the University of Miami. I studied jazz guitar at UM and during my many years as a guitarist I have performed genres from folk to metal to pop.
Most of my tutoring experience during college focused on math courses, SAT prep and music theory.
I am great with kids; I taught summer camps at a town-run skatepark for 4 summers.
Shoot me a message to see if we are a good fit!

About Victoria
Hello! My name is Victoria Voisin and I am currently a student at Southeastern Louisiana University. I have been playing violin for about 10 years under the direction of Ardis Case and Rachel Provenza (Shreveport, La). I have also had the privilege to be privately taught by Elizabeth O'Bannon. I was concert mistress for 3 years at C.E. Byrd and a participant in multiple Shreveport Honor Orchestra's and an appearance in the Louisiana Hayride. I worked with my orchestra to not only help everyone, but to help each individual person. I believe that playing an instrument like the violin is a gift that should be passed on to others.

"Jonathan Kalb has been my guitar teacher now for a little over 2 year and ​​I’m delighted to say, I am much more than pleased with my lessons.
I took lessons previously and was OK with them, but found myself wandering and lacking a sense of ‘commitment’ to the teacher and to my studies. Dry.
I’m not a kid anymore and was looking for a teacher who could work with my adult enthusiasm, excitement, and I didn't want to be rooted to teaching me the pentatonic scales in all keys before we could get to some playing and having some fun, too... I was hoping for a teacher who could personalize his teaching skills, and for me, Jonathan came through with flying colors. He’s so much more than a “One Size Fits All” teacher; he’s a real person – reachable, able to identify my needs, my strengths and weaknesses, and takes this into full consideration during our lessons. He’s an experienced, talented teacher. Simple.
He’s a person that really knows his stuff from musical theory to the many styles of playing, i.e., blues, jazz, folk, country and even rock; he can play and more importantly – he can teach um all! I’m an aspiring singer/songwriter and in addition to helping me define those strange chords I’m playing, he inspires me to ‘grow on.’
Oh, and one more thing: If your lesson is an hour long and there’s something important happening, he won’t cut you off - he’ll take the extra time needed to get you to the end of ‘the measure,’ comfortably." Feb 2017 Rachel I.

Jonathan Kalb is a professional blues artist, a multi instrumentalist, and a talented teacher. I have been taking harmonica lessons from Jonathan for over seven years and my playing has improved dramatically as a result of his instruction. He often accompanies me on either piano or guitar in order to help me master a difficult harmonica lick.
Whether you are looking for a teacher on guitar, piano, bass, harmonica or drums, I highly recommend Jonathan Kalb as your teacher.

About Sam
A native of West Hartford, CT, Sam Merrill is a 2014 graduate of William H. Hall High School. During his time at Hall, he was a part of the school’s esteemed jazz program, where he played lead trumpet in John Mastroianni’s Concert Jazz Band. Hall’s show, “Pops ‘n Jazz” allowed Sam to work with musicians like trumpeters Tony Kadleck, Michael Mossman, Scott Wendholt, and Jeff Holmes, saxophonist Joel Frahm, pianist Joyce DiCamillo, and many others. Throughout middle and high school, Sam studied privately with Nancy Brown, a renowned trumpeter in the tristate area who helped Sam build a strong foundation on the instrument.

Upon graduating high school, Sam moved to Danbury, CT, where he pursued and obtained a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies at Western Connecticut State University. At WCSU, he studies privately with Dave Scott, and Jumaan
e Smith (lead trumpet player for Michael Bublé and Harry Connick, Jr.). He also held an eight-semester tenure of the lead trumpet chair in the school’s esteemed Jazz Orchestra under the direction of GRAMMY nominated jazz saxophonist Jimmy Greene, and guitarist Jamie Begian; both unbelievable talents and inspirations. Thanks to WCSU’s annual Jazz Festival, Sam has been fortunate enough to share the stage with the likes of pianist Kenny Barron, tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano, and most recently, vibraphonist Stefon Harris.

Over the years, Sam was also fortunate enough to build a relationship with Los Angeles studio legend Wayne Bergeron, who has helped further develop his abilities on the trumpet.
A May 2018 graduate of WCSU, Sam just touched down in Nashville, TN, hoping to continue a career as a trumpeter, teacher, composer, and arranger.

About Amy
Do you know:
Learning music grows new neural pathways in your brain
Can increase your IQ by 10 points
Children who study music are better at math, English, creative arts and science
Adults who study music can delay or lessen symptoms of Alzheimer's, arthritis and depression?
Can help children with special needs increase focus and knowledge absorption and be a source of positive energy and success.
But, don't just choose a random teacher from the phone book. Choose someone who can not only play well, but can teach well. Learning to play piano takes time and money. You want your investment to be worth it. I want to share with you the great joy that music has given my life. I want you to love music as much as I do. Let's go on a fabulous journey together.

About Jacob
I’m a college student. I’ve been playing guitar now for eight years. I love music! I also love seeing people progress in music. I have had a few friends that play guitar that I have seen grow and develope their own sound. It is so cool. I play all kinds of music. I enjoy Spanish guitar though I am not too skilled at it. I am learning just like you. Guitar is a cool instrument because when just getting started all you need is a shove in the right directions. Once you feel comfortable finding your own tabs and figure out how to learn on your own I encourage that!
