About John

I have been teaching young people and adults how to play musical instruments for over 20 years. A lot of my students are well on their way to a rewarding future with music, some as professionals and others as hobbyists. In addition to being a teacher, I am also a professional performer who has worked in a wide variety of styles and I have a Masters degree in music composition and theory.

One of my main specialties is working with very young students and total beginners. There is a special skill to teaching young children that can only be developed through experience. For the older student, or the student who already has a musical background my specialty is helping you learn the styles that have always been of most interest to you. I can also help older students gain a broad understanding of music through some basic music theory.

**

* Lesson Details ***
I can teach piano or keyboard to beginners and up to advanced students. On guitar and woodwinds I can teach beginners and up to intermediate level students.
My teaching style is fairly relaxed and very positive, but I will try to keep the lessons on a course that is going to benefit you the most.

For younger piano students and beginners I prefer the Alfreds piano system. The songs in the Alfreds books allow for immediate playing and note reading without any tedious memorization. The beginner books contain a lot of fun songs that kids really gravitate toward. For older students I try to gear the lessons toward whatever musical style you prefer. For students who have only had traditional piano lessons I can teach you how to read pop and jazz chord charts, as well as how to turn those chord charts into fully arranged music. I can also teach improvisation and the skills that are required to play specific styles of music in a professional band.

For my younger guitar students I have a variety of beginner material I have collected over the years, but for my older students I prefer to work on songs of their choice.
My beginner woodwind students will work with a Yamaha method book, while older students can learn improvisation and theory if they like.

I also can lead Orff styled tuned percussion ensembles. The Orff style of music performance allows for students from entirely mis-matched musical backgrounds to play music together, even on their first day of class.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Professional digital piano, many other keyboards, guitar, bass guitar, saxophone, flute, and four Orff tuned percussion instruments. I also have a comfortable seating area for parents, guests or observers.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide multiple keyboards, a guitar, saxophone, flute and 4 Orff style tuned percussion instruments, as well as countless books and literature.

*** Specialties ***
I play keyboards professionally in jazz, RnB, rock, reggae, Latin rock and other styles. I can help the student who has only had traditional lessons branch out and learn how to read chord charts, which in turn teaches them theory.
I am a certified Orff teacher as well.

About Kevin

I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance.

I have taught private lessons for several years now and I love every moment with my students! I have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap into if they want. Above all, making and creating music should also be fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't yell at students for messing up or anything like that. I usually have an agenda b

ut am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I like Alfred's piano courses, but will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you want to pursue, you will be successful. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing in other genres as well.

I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!

***CANCELLATION POLICY***
I kindly ask for 24 hour notice whenever possible if a lesson is going to be missed. Generally speaking, if I don't hear from a student and their lesson time passes I will mark the lesson as missed, but I am also usually more than willing to make up the lesson at a later time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.

About Glynis

Glynis has been reading music since before she knew how to read words. Her mother started teaching her piano lessons at age 3, and she started taking voice lessons at age 7. She learned from an early age to practice every day. She has taught all levels and ages of piano and voice for many years. Glynis specializes in jazz voice, but has a very strong classical and musical theatre background. She is an arranger, composer, educator, and singer. She received her AA in Professional Music from SWCC (school for music vocations), her BA in Jazz Studies: Vocal Performance at CSU Sacramento, and her Masters in Jazz Studies: Vocal Performance at the Bob Cole Conservatory at CSU Long Beach. She teaches college and high school vocal jazz ensembles as well as many private students in many areas of music.
*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching philosoph

y is to have a safe, positive, fun, and effective learning environment for all of my students. I believe it is important to be a well rounded musician, therefore I love my students to have a solid understanding of what they are doing. I strongly encourage all of my students to learn theory along with piano or voice, so they understand what they are doing. Each student is unique, therefore each student has a different lesson plan. I do expect that my students will practice during the week in order to grow, since this helps them reach their goals. I do let students pick most their own repertoire, since it is very important for them to be motivated and enjoy their assignments during the week. I can teach from early Baroque music to modern day and everything in between. Music is expression, therefore I believe it is very important for my students to love what they are working on.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are in my house with my upright Yamaha piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a keyboard, but it is necessary to have a piano or keyboard at home to pracitce on if you are a piano student.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz voice, with a strong background in classical and musical theatre. I also specialize in piano, music theory, songwriting and arranging.

About Keira

Hi there! So you're passionate about music?

Do you want to feel more connected to what you're doing?

Are you feeling stuck and frustrated, as if you hit a plateau?

Or maybe you just have certain goals you want to reach and need someone to hold you accountable.

Do your thoughts and self-criticism hold you back?

Do you want to feel free when you sing and/or play the piano?

If any of this sounds familiar, I'm here to tell you that I understand, because I have faced these hurdles myself as an artist and have helped hundreds of people with the same problems over the past ten years of teaching.

I graduated from Musicians Institute in Vocal Performance and have been studying piano my entire life, for over 20+ years. Classically trained since the age of 4, I did a quick U-turn and headed down the path of contemporary afte

r years of private classical training. I believe in the marriage of the two worlds to have a full mind, body and soul experience with music.

PIANISTS!
I created a very easy to follow approach that includes ALL components of learning piano such as sight reading, ear training and music theory. My goal is to have my students be able to approach music in ANY way they choose: to be able to read sheet music, play by ear AND eventually be able to freestyle and improvise.

SINGERS!
I provide a safe space for my students to express themselves vocally. Vocals is rewarding, but challenging to train because it is A PART OF OUR BODY we cannot see, only feel. In order to be your best, you must become IN TUNE with yourself. Lessons involve training the muscular functions of your vocal cords, LISTENING to great vocalists for intriguing melodies and rhythms, UNLEARNING toxic thought patterns and OBSERVING the mind as a huge part of singing is mental.

I have taught over 200 students in person, all over Los Angeles, California since 2010. I am looking to expand online so I can reach people outside of Los Angeles. Feel free to ask questions, I am here to help. I'm looking forward to hearing you share your favorite songs with me!

Cant say enough good things about Joel. He doesnt get frustrated when I don't grasp a concept he breaks it down to where I can understand and work through it. Works to play what I'm interested and what I really want to play. I thought going to learn an instrument at 27 would be rough but it has been fun and enjoyable.

Joel is an amazing instructor. I have had music instructors that get frustrated and roll their eyes or scoff. Not once have I gotten that from Joel. He breaks it down to where it is completely understandable and willing to work at your speed. I especially like that he isn't hung up on boring songs he pushes for what the student is interested in. Makes learning so much more fun. I thought trying to learn an instrument at 27 would make me feel dumb but Joel doesnt create that kind of environment. Only good vibes. Cant say enough good things about Joel.

We are so glad that Joel is our 12 year olds Ukulele instructor. Joel is an extremely knowledgeable and skilled musician. He is especially gifted in putting students at ease and guiding them in pursuing their individual music styles. After only a short number of lesson with Joel, our shy girl is playing and singing her favorite popular songs !!

About Luis

Hello, My Name is Luis I have been playing the guitar for some time now as a hobby. In 2017 I launched my new website TritoneMusic.net providing pre-owned guitars, lessons, and merchandise. I found teaching to be one of the most rewarding contributions I can make to an individual.
I will travel in some cases to your lessons but prefer teaching at my studio we offer a clean and smoke-free environment. Our studio is equipped with several resource books, audio, and online applications to provide lessons with a modern approach. We offer lessons for guitar, acoustic and electric, bass guitar, and keyboard. With my teachings, you will learn music through some of the proven methods taught at Berklee School Of Music. As well as concepts that I have found to have students play music and have fun quickly. The instrument can be overwhelming s

ometimes but with the good guidance of an instructor, you can truly begin to enjoy your instrument and all it has to offer. Visit me at TritoneMusic.net for more information. Until then " Keep The Dream Alive "

Very patient and informative. Allowed me to ask endless questions. Addressed all my concerns and removed any doubt about this arrangement working specifically for me and my schedule. His studio has a very nice setup and it's simplified. We did a breakdown of my experience and focused on setting realistic goals towards my learning process. More than a "Teacher" of music but a "Professor" of guitar methods! He focused in on getting me comfortable with the most basic of finger techniques, finger placement and familiarized with the sections of the solo lead guitar. After an hour's session my mind was put at ease about my ability to be patient with myself. I was never made to feel awkward or out of my league. This caused me to open up and to really focus. Mr.Cole has a great style and passion towards helping me to soak in as much content as possible. His location is within a community that's family orientated. I look forward to being tutored by Mr.Cole over the course of the next year without any complications.

"Fantastic Teacher!

I have been taking lessons with Josh for nearly two years now, and I feel very lucky to have found a guitar teacher like him. Josh has
extensive knowledge about the guitar, and he presents it in a way that is accessible to even novice guitar players. He has a passion for what he does. He is excited about music and enjoys watching his students progress. When I began taking lessons with Josh, he asked me questions to discover what I wanted to get out of playing guitar. Josh, tailors my lessons to get results toward my goals and he keeps it fun. As a professional, Josh is prepared for my lesson each week. He gives me specific exercises to practice that move me in the direction I want to go. In addition, Josh is very generous with his time and always makes himself available to clarify questions between lessons. For me, this is an unbeatable value."

Violin Tips: Avoiding the Bouncing Bow

By Suzy S.

As you're learning how to play the violin, the art of holding and placing your bow just right is important to master. There are a lot of details that go into proper bowing technique, and each has the potential to make or break your sound. For many beginners, learning to control the bow so it doesn't bounce against the strings is the first step. The dreaded  "bouncing bow" is a common issue, especially if you're trying to play softly, or if you're nervous. Here are some possible reasons for a …
