Jordan R.

Monrovia, CA

About Jordan

I received my education at the University of Wisconsin, majoring in Jazz Guitar. I've studied with some of the best guitarists in the Midwest, and have performed live and in recording studios all across the country in a variety of styles (Rock, Metal, Bluegrass, Jazz, Classical, Country). I've performed internationally, and my playing has been featured on several prime time television shows. I've always had a love of music, and it’s a passion that I try to instill in all of my students!

Through focus on note reading, chords, improvisation, and technique, I try to give my students tools that
they can take with them throughout their musical journey, whether playing music for fun or professionally!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to be laid back and very individual with my approach. I always introduce a curriculum designed to teach basic chords, note reading, and basic theory, but I also understand that each student has a particular set of interests, and I want to inspire them to follow those interests. Whether it's Rock, Blues, Country, Folk, or Classical, I want to give my students the tools and understanding that they need to excel at the music that drives them.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to have everything that they need to practice the materials that I give them, including an instrument, amplifier and tuner if necessary, and a music stand. I provide all lesson materials.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock, metal, country, blues, and jazz with an emphasis on theory and technique.

My Name is Hilarie and I'm 49 years old and I took a 40 year hiatus from playing the Piano. I can tell you that my skill level is that of a beginner with a mind set of at least intermediate . I have completed my 7th week with Jordan as my teacher. He has been exceptional in his patience, professionalism and most of all encouragement! Our lessons are well rounded and he helps me to focus on the fundamentals I need to achieve my goals . Very respectful and polite. I highly recommend Jordan to all who wish for musical instruction. And I must add that he is very cute/handsome! :)

All four of my children have taken lessons with Jordan, in piano and acoustic guitar. Jordan has a natural way with children, and adapts his style and lessons to the individual needs of each child. Jordan's musical gifts, and his gift of relating to and teaching, children makes him and excellent teacher. I recommend him whole-heartedly.

I have played in bands, recorded music, and taken a few lessons with Jordan in the past. He is without a doubt, one of the most gifted musicians I have ever had the pleasure to work with. In addition, he is a very patient and attentive teacher and caters his teaching to suit the needs/abilities of the student. I highly recommend Jordan for lessons on multiple instruments, you won't be disappointed.

Jason W.

Glendale, CA

About Jason

I grew up in Minnesota and started playing guitar when I was 13. Self-taught for three years, I developed a passion and love for music. Upon turning 16, I expanded my knowledge studying with a local guitarist, a musical genius in my opinion, who made a huge impact on my playing. In the fall of 2007 I relocated to Los Angeles to attend Musicians Institute for guitar performance. I graduated in 2009

Over the course of the last nine years I've been a part of six different live performing bands and currently work with my original band comprised entirely of Musicians Institute graduates, Delp
hian. Delphian can be seen and heard featured on screen in the Mike Judge film “Extract”. I study, perform and have vast knowledge in the styles of blues, classical, country, folk, jazz, metal and rock n' roll. Everyday as I continue to grow as a teacher and musician, so does my love for the guitar. I very much enjoy sharing my knowledge and seeing each of my students progress and grow as musicians.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every lesson will be tailored exactly to what you want to learn. We can cover specific topics such as music theory, harmony and improvisation, but if you would prefer to just work on learning your favorite songs, that's precisely what we'll do. Let me know what you want to learn and it will be done. We'll monitor your progress to help reach your goals. Most importantly, we will have fun while learning!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Acoustic and electric guitars and basses, amps, cables, music stands, PC with QBase recording software

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide my own equipment. Guitar, amp, and cables. Students should have their own guitar and amp.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock and metal, but I love to teach other styles like classical guitar, blues, jazz, and country.

We started off with a different drum instructor who turned out to be very unreliable. I asked take lessons to provide me with someone with good reviews. Someone who is punctual and reliable, that's when we met Jason. Jason is a super amazing instructor who has incredible patience. My son Nathan has never had any musical education before. After taking lessons with Jason for about three months he has a vast knowledge in playing drums and reading music. Jason utilizes his time very productively during lessons with no rush. He even goes to the extent to recommend and suggest products that will help Nathan improve. He is very humble, sweet and trustworthy. My family is glad that he came along. Thank you Jason from all of us.

Very good with young children

My son is 4 years old and has only had two sessions with Eli however, he does a very good job of communicating with him on his level and keeping his focus. He also has given him practice exercises which seem to do the trick.

Spencer L.

Glendale, CA

I have been drumming for 12 years now. I have studied and performed with many instructors and artists since the age of 15. Early on I studied jazz drumming with local drummers, Sinclair Lott, Matt Slocum and Peter Erskine. While attending the Macy Gray Music Academy in 2008 I studied drums with renowned musicians Stacey Lamont Sydnor and Al Pahanish Jr. During that time I was also performing with the Grammy Award Winner singer-songwriter Macy Gray. During high school I travelled and competed in many jazz festivals and won various awards including recognition in Downbeat magazine. I spent a summer at Berklee School of Music in Boston and studied under the great Larry Finn and Mark Walker. I I continued to study in college with Jason Harnell and recently received my bachelors of Music Performance from the University of California Irvine in 2014.

About Spencer

Hello future students!

I am a very easy-going guy and teacher. I have been playing music for about 12 years, studying diligently in and outside of school.

I'm recently finished studying and received my degree at the University of California Irvine for music performance. Through the various private lessons I have taken, I've learned many aspects to music education that help me with my students (you). I have been teaching music privately and in local schools for over 6 years now.

My goals as a teacher is to inspire students to create, perform and continue studying music.

*** Les
son Details ***
Although I want every student to have a good time during their lesson, I do expect a lot out of them. Depending on their ability and age different curriculum will be used. Generally I try to make each lesson a fun experience as well as informative. I like to drill the fundamentals but work with each student individually on what they enjoy and want to learn.

After a few months of practice, students will be able to play complete songs and grooves, they will be able to keep solid time, and will have developed basic tools to improvise and solo.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Two drum sets, PA, recording equipment, upright piano, amps for guitar and bass, instruments and ear protection headphones.

The space is used for recording and rehearsals and is nearly soundproof.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide all instruments I teach. But in most cases I prefer that each student has their own instrument/software. It's very difficult to practice without an instrument.

*** Specialties ***
My methods are to inspire students to play, perform, create, and more important practice. I try to make each lesson a fun experience as well as informative. I like to drill the fundamentals but work with each student individually on what they enjoy and want to learn.

Spencer has a true gift in the world of drumming. He is an excellent drummer, as well as a very effective teacher. He quickly knows where a student's weak spots are, and what to do to improve his/her skills quickly. He does this with lessons that are fun and motivating. He has great energy, and is a good listener. He is a great teacher, and can easily adjust his technique to match the needs for a child, a teenager, or an adult. I have no regrets...

Paul does a great job of balancing the theoretical and applied. He focuses on developing strong fundamentals and good habits but also delves into songs that apply new skills learned along the way at the appropriate pace. As a beginner, Paul has helped me get off to a good start where I'm learning a lot but also having a lot of fun.

A big plus is that he's got a real down-to-earth personality that makes the lessons even more enjoyable and really interesting to talk to about all things drums and otherwise.

My son has taken lessons with Paul for over 5 years. Not only is Paul an accomplished musician, he's a great teacher. His teaching style is positive and supportive. He has modified my son's lessons through the years, as his goals and needs have changed. Paul has always been professional, reliable and enthusiastic. He genuinely seems to enjoy what he does, and as a bonus, Paul is also a really nice guy, who has had a positive influence on my teenage son's life.
