James H.

West Covina, CA

My services provide you with an opportunity to learn from a balance state of thinking to achieve success in your goals for the chosen instrument. Whether its technique, learning how to read both musically and literally, my teaching methods are very self reflective and introspective to provide the understanding you're looking for. All in all my sessions are very people friendly and driven to meet your needs. This helps to learn on a deeper level so that you may appreciate, learn faster and enjoy a greater sense of awareness for the fun of the music making process. I have a very warm and easy going approach with an emphasis on FUN so that we can connect to what we love to do which is make music.

About James

My name is James and I have earned a Master’s degree in Music Performance and graduated from Cal State Fullerton. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education received from the University of Redlands. I have performed with a variety of musical ensembles (college, orchestra, band, chamber groups) and have experience in all musical genres. Currently I am Co-principal of the Corona Symphony Orchestra and play in other groups throughout Southern California as well as the Elementary level band instructor in the Monrovia Unified School district. I have also taught and coached at several middle
and high schools for the past few years, and I teach privately throughout the San Gabriel Valley and the Inland Empire. My passion is educating the musicians of tomorrow and helping them discover their innate musical abilities and desires.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are very student driven and revolve around developing students innate music abilities to help them connect and experience success as well as enriching their lives with music. In my lessons students will develop music appreciation skills by listening to music, understanding basic music theory concepts, growing a knowledge of historical awareness in music all alongside learning the instrument of their chosen preference. The pace set for the sessions is rather relaxed and is highly dependent on the student but, students are guided throughout the sessions to eventually achieve their goals. My main teaching approach is: Let me use my skills and knowledge to help figure out what works best for you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
The home studio lessons take place in the living room or a finished garage with tile floor. Seating is available in both areas. Parking is on the street. He has an upright piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide music as well as they can provide music as well. I can provide a music stand. They need to provide the necessary equipment that allows their instrument to function

*** Specialties ***
Primarily classical style and some jazz.

My son loved his first lesson with James! He was very anxious to move forward at a more rapid pace, and James really encouraged him to take it to the next level. We were very impressed with James' communication and prompt arrival. We're off to a great start!

James is a very nice teacher. Easy going which is exactly what my son needs. Nothing too intense. My son had an easy time transitioning from clarinet to bassoon with Jame's help and they are doing good so far. I highly recommend him.

Michelle M.

Upland, CA

All ages and levels of students.

About Michelle

Classical performing and recording artist Michelle M. has openings for flute students of any level, from beginner to advanced. Michelle has performed worldwide as a soloist and chamber musician. As a teacher, she focuses on learning skills correctly from the beginning, with emphasis on good tone production and healthy body mechanics. She also works with high school students preparing college auditions, and has regular recital opportunities for all students.

"I love teaching private lessons. It's so much fun watching students grow musically and emotionally! My teaching style emphasizes l
earning CORRECTLY from the beginning, so that bad habits don't form, such as bad posture which can lead to pain down the road. I also pick music which the students know and enjoy, so that playing daily becomes a fun ritual for them.

"Learning musical skills such as theory, composition and improvisation are also part of my teaching style. These things strengthen a student's overall musical knowledge and enjoyment. I also highly recommend that students listen and watch flute performances, either recordings or live concerts.

"Of course, the best part is playing, and I encourage all students to perform as much as possible, whether in my student recitals or in outside concerts. I offer many opportunities for performance, and help prepare students for their own band or orchestra concerts as well."

Michelle is a fantastic teacher! My daughter was a beginner student, just starting at elementary school, and we wanted to supplement those lessons. Wow, what a difference it has made! Elaine shows improvement after every lesson and she just LOVES Michelle. She is patient and kind, and very motivational. She has a knack for reaching Elaine and bringing out the best in her. Thank you, Michelle!

As a former student, I couldn't feel luckier to have studied flute with Michelle for ~6 years (ages 10-16). During that time, she not only helped improve my technique and skill enormously, but also acted as a hugely supportive, warm and funny presence in my life. Michelle genuinely cared about my progress and very patiently guided me through years of instruction, offering constant encouragement. She always made sure I was thoroughly prepared for every recital, music competition, or youth orchestra that I participated in, and helped me pick music that I always enjoyed playing and practicing. She was also very thoughtful and hands-on in terms of helping me choose a new flute, a music camp, etc., which my parents and I greatly appreciated.

During my time with Michelle, I felt that my lessons were excellently paced—she knew when to push and challenge me, but also made sure I was comfortable with the material, and didn't rush me if something proved more difficult. Over the years, we progressed through theory, breathing techniques, scales, playing with an accompanist or another flutist, etc. in a way that felt very natural and appropriate. Additionally, the relationship we built became very important to me as a student. There were several times that, as an overextended middle- or high-schooler, I seriously thought about quitting flute—but the idea of stopping lessons with Michelle was sad enough to make me reconsider each time. I truly appreciated how much she cared about me both as a musician and as a person, and was thankful in the end to have kept playing with her as long as I did.

Michelle is easy-going and knowledgeable, kind and talented, understanding and wonderful. I will always be so grateful for the kind of instruction and encouragement I received from her—she helped me grow as a musician in every way. Thank you so much!!

My daughter (who is now in college) was a student of Michelle’s from 4th – 11th grade. Michelle is a talented musician, a wonderful person, and a very effective teacher. My daughter really enjoyed her lessons with Michelle - it was always a bright spot in her busy week. She benefited from Michelle’s guidance outside of lessons also – recitals, entering and placing in solo competitions, and auditioning and playing for the Los Angeles Youth Orchestra. We felt so lucky to have found Michelle – she was an excellent teacher and a wonderful role model - teacher, musician, mother. I recommend her very, very highly.

I've found Bri right here at TakeLessons back in January and my son and daughter have been taking vocal lessons with her since. To date, Bri has been nothing but incredibly amazing.

My children love Bri and always look forward to seeing her every week. She is passionate, she is relatable, and she is able to connect with them in a way their previous teacher never could. Most importantly, Bri not only knows her craft, but she teaches it well.

Besides the various methods, breathing techniques, and vocal exercises, she'd break down a song, help them understand the story behind the lyrics and teach them how to sing with appropriate compassion, affection, and emotion. Moreover, Bri recognizes their individual voice abilities/limitations, and help manipulate their voices so they sing to the best of their capabilities yet still sound great.

Even though we've been only with Bri for a short period of time, but I've already seen my children making tremendous progress. In fact, thanks to Bri, my son had success at an audition that he came up short many times.

We're so blessed that we've found Bri. She is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend Bri whole heartily without any reservations.

When our daughter started lessons with Brianne, she had been playing for a couple of years. She had a great ability to play but we felt she needed to be challenged. Brianne gave our daughter that challenge combined with the confidence she needed to actually start enjoying practice time! Her arrangements for Izzy make it so that Izzy is looking forward to practice something she's always wanted to play.

She is very patient and our daughter really loves her and piano. Izzy is always excited about piano lessons now. She says that they go by so fast, that's a great sign of a good teacher.

Thank you Brianne for sharing your amazing talent with my family.

Eric C.

Upland, CA

In lessons, I will teach students how to develop an embouchure and make sound, have proper technique, discuss equipment care, how to read music and develop note recognition, and ultimately, play music. The goal is to get my students playing with proper technique, so that this will carry on throughout their career and playing of the instrument. After getting some sounds out of the instrument and having decent technique, students will be assigned 1-2 songs to work on each lesson. It is the learning of music on one's own, that I believe, truly challenges the student to continue to apply information given in lessons.

About Eric

Hi! I'm Eric, a Saxophonist, Composer, Singer, and Teacher that was born and raised in Southern California. I've been playing the saxophone for over ten years now, writing music for as long as I can remember, and singing since I was in elementary school. I play for a variety of groups in the Los Angeles Area, and sometimes perform in Los Angeles at venues such as the LightHouse, Saint Rocke, and the Baked Potato.

The three most rewarding experiences in my musical career, would be a successful performance, great feedback on a new composition, and watching the progress of my student's skill.
I have taught students from elementary school all the way to those that are older than me. I keep my lessons fun, efficient, and applicable. I give students assignments to work on, so they don't forget what I teach, and so they can expand upon the concepts given in lessons, which familiarizes them with the information. I look forward to helping you unlock your potential!

Dave T.

Covina, CA

I have played professionally all over the USA as well as international travel and solo recordings. I have played for broadway musicals as well as movie soundtracks. From solo street performing to big band and orchestra from Bach to Rock and everything in between, reading is essential as well as improvisation in all these styles to be a truly successful musician. I can teach you the skills necessary to go as far as you want.

About Dave

I have been teaching privately since 1987 and am available to teach at my home studio or your home. I have helped students achieve first chair positions in school band, pass college entrance auditions, become professional musicians, and become successful private instructors.

I received my training at Oral Roberts University from 1980-1985 where I received a degree in Music Composition and worked on my Master's degree in Woodwind Doubling at Azusa Pacific University from 2008-2011.

Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Della Reese, John
ny Mathis, Vicki Carr, Andre Crouch, as well as played and written for cartoons such as "Ren and Stimpy", "Angry Beavers", "Jimmy Neutron", and various children's projects for Disney and Sesame Street.

As an expert in my field, I look forward to helping new students achieve their goals.
