Matthew G.

Hesperia, CA

In music performance you will the basics of what the takes to put together groups, as well as instruments, and create incredible praise teams for church, or bands!

About Matthew

There are many things in life one can learn or accomplish! One of the most fulfilling is to learn & understand music! I have such a passion for anything music related! Music has always been a huge part of my life, since the day I picked up the sticks to play the drums when I was 13, until today, continuing to advance as far as possible on the piano! I enjoy playing multiple instruments, and I have great joy & much patience in sharing this love for music with others! My name is Matthew & I have been playing music since the age of 13. I have taught at "The Fundamental Sounds of Music School" in
Fontana CA at my local church in Fontana CA for 2 years. I got accepted into the Art Institute of San Francisco CA for my Associates Degree in "Audio Production," which I recently graduated. I have played in numerous groups & have written many songs. I have also sang in a few choirs and have put together many groups and voices in the past. I am excited to meet you and/or your child as a student! My goal is see all of my students excel and go far, above and beyond me, in this beautiful world of music! There is no limit to how far you can go! "Where words fail, music speaks." -Author unknown

*** Lesson Details ***
The journey we will take to accomplish your musical goals is based on you! The student:] We will find out, what you want to learn, "whats" your passion, and from there, figure out the kind of lessons that will best suit and cater to your style! :] I am unique as is every teacher in there style of teaching, I like to see students have the oppurtunity to *not* be limited in music, but to be able to teach him or her self, by learning to play by ear! and if the student wants to learn to read music as well, I can teach that as well! I am a big fan of "Alfred" material in the world of music, I use nothing else for the most part if I'm teaching music and using material, depending on the student, one can easily learn to play an instrument, such as a guitar in as fast as 10 lessons! Even sooner depending on how much practice time is put in during the students own time:] Typically though there are about 13 lessons to complete as a beginner, of the instrument you plan to learn, or voice, which is also an instrument! Its a truly exciting journey, & I would be honored to have a opportunity to go along this journey with you:]

*** Studio Equipment ***
I povide teaching material & lessons, I expect my student to provide there own instrument & and any accessories needed such as a metronome or capo:]

*** Travel Equipment ***
In my home studio, big living room area, A.C, most times my family is over but no interruptions in the music room:] Instruments. Great acoustics. Seating for parents. And my other 2 studios would be churches, one smaller and one very large:] I truly enjoy working one on one, of course with parents as well as students if they are young children, giving them 110% focus & attention! :]

*** Specialties ***
Contemporary, Gospel, Classical, Alternative, Rock, Rock & Roll, Spanish :]

Matthew was a great teacher…however found he was unable to teach in his home or studio, needed to rearrange the classes to my location, which was not convenient for me

Aaron P.

Apple Valley, CA

All styles

About Aaron

As a 15-year-old teen I was headed nowhere. I had no interests and was failing my freshman year of high school. Then I started playing the guitar and fell in love with music. As I studied under my dad, who was a professional musician, my mind started to open up, my attention span grew. My problem solving skills and comprehension improved to such a degree that my grades went up to the honor level. Since I ended up graduating with a 4.0, I preach and stress the importance of learning a musical instrument.
I got into teaching only 4 years after I first picked up the guitar and immediately found
that it was what I wanted to do for a living. Oh sure! Playing in bands is fun but I enjoy seeing my students grow in and with music most of all. Having over 20 years’ experience as a professional musician and teacher. I have been teaching exclusively in the High Desert area for the last 16 years. I started at a music store in Apple Valley called Hi Note Music then taught at Tom's for 14 years. Now I teach at Rollover Beethoven's Music store in Hesperia and out of my studio in Apple Valley.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach almost any style of music including Rock, Jazz, Blues, Classical, Country and R&B. I stress the fundamentals: technique, reading, theory, ear training but in addition, I will give you all the licks and tricks you want. The important thing is to develop good habits because bad habits take a long time to overcome. I will provide you with the tools to play anything your heart desires and the ability to teach yourself.

*** Studio Equipment ***
separate studio w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Have portable sound system and lap top computer. All the student needs are their instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I have written methods that I have found to work very well in teaching the student all aspects of music and how to apply it towards the instrument. My methods include the essentials in reading, finger exercises, theory, and ear training. I like to prepare my students for any and all genres. The key is to teach the student how to teach themselves.

*** Lesson Detai

When taking lessons from me there are many things my students can expect. First and most importantly it will be fun! Music is supposed to be fun and expressive so why make it boring and repetitive? For each student that I have I make a custom curriculum just for them based on their musical desires, strengths and weaknesses so I can help them become the best player that they can be. Each lessons will be a balance of learning new technique and theory and applying them in songs that excite and inspire.
Things such as: music theory, ear and harmony training, single string technique, sight and cord chart reading, cord structure, song writing, tone shaping, guitar maintenance and playing live will be covered with students as they advance. Feed back is always welcome and appreciated. This is your lesson, let's make sure you get the most out of it.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Studio: Guitars, amps, mixing board, protools, computer with external stereo, seating for parents can be arranged

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my own guitar and cables. But the student will need to have their own guitar, amp etc

*** Specialties ***
Blues, Rock, Metal, Jazz, Funk and Country

Shane is very prompt and down to earth. He really made me feel like my time was valued and made sure my questions/ concerns were addressed prior to the end of our lesson. He made me feel at ease during the lesson and not flustered for any mistakes... he even showed me how to achieve similar notes with different finger positions for ease and comfort.
