Matthew G.

Hesperia, CA

In this class you will get to know how to correctly play one of the most fun instruments to play! Percussion! We will go over different types of percussion instruments and how to correctly play them all!

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

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.

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.

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.

Jonathan S.

Claremont, CA

I have been playing percussion professionally for about 7 years. I have been able to play at venues such as the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, as well as the Mozartium in Austria. I have played percussion in orchestras, Jazz Bands, and many other classical and commercial groups. I have I offer lessons that cover a wide variety of percussion instruments, both in the classical world as well as the commercial world. From timpani, to keyboard percussion, to auxiliary percussion, I can teach it all. My goal for my students is to assist them on getting proficient on either one percussion instrument, or all of them! Within the first few lessons, my students will be familiar with all percussion instruments that they choose to explore. I am excited to dive into the world of percussion with my students and help them explore what playing percussion is about!
