Lessons are tailored to each individual student and their goals! As a professional musician and artist with years of teaching experience I can help you get to the next level.

About De'Anza
As an active artist and graduate of Los Angeles College of Music, I believe that teaching is much more than a student learning to play their instrument. It's about creating a fun environment where students not only get a solid musical foundation but are also encouraged to express themselves creatively. I only take on a limited amount of students so that my attention is fully focused on each lesson.

Guitar Flat-picking:
Materials needed: guitars (preferably acoustic guitar), picks, and capo (instructor might provide capo on some occasions). I usually provide exercises, tabs, and sheets.

Guitar is a beautiful instrument, so y'all made a very good decision to learn the guitar. In my guitar course, you will be able to explore so many different types of music. I am primarily a flat-picker on the guitar (playing guitar with a pick), but I also explore other styles of guitar as well. With my course, you will be able to learn from the very basic to very advance techniques. The course is designed to enrich your ability to play one of the most important instruments in the string world. This guitar course will help you understand musical theories that are necessary to your musicianship.

About Easton
I was a music student at UC Riverside, and I am a transferred student at East Tennessee State University and my concentration is music education. I teach beginner students and intermediate level students guitar, mandolin and piano. My lesson plan heavily concentrates on theories, sight reading, and performing.

My guitar lesson has three parts: chords, flatpicking, and theory. This lesson is designed for students who want to learn to play guitar as fast as possible. Students will be able to gain the proper technique to excel at the instrument in a short time. The theory aspect of guitar would focus on tabs and music staffs.

My piano lesson has two parts: theory and technique. And again, this lesson will give students the necessary knowledge and technique to execute a perfect piano performance. Students will gain valuable skills tha
t are required to be a musician.

My mandolin lesson has three parts: chords (chop notes), flatpicking, and theory. Students with interest Bluegrass music are highly recommended to take Mandolin lesson because it is such a fun instrument to play! Former guitarists are welcomed to take Mandolin lessons to discover the beauty of this instrument

I teach around the Tri-Cities plus some nearby locations (including Asheville, NC). I mainly travel to students, but I also provide classes online. I give free first lesson to students to see if I am the right match for the student!

I am from the Bay Area of Northern California, and I've taught extensively in Southern California. I relocated to Tri-Cities (Northeast Tennessee) because I transferred school from UC Riverside to ETSU to pursue Music Education, a program that UC Riverside does not offer.

NOTE: If you are in Asheville area or Knoxville area and are interested in lesson with me, feel free to contact me. If you are in Asheville NC (metro area) or in Knoxville area (metro area), I will only do one-hour lesson or more.

I was a self-taught guitar player until i studied music at UMASS Lowell where i learned about reading music and theory. I can give a unique approach to teaching by utilizing aspects of ear training and note recognition. I also have much experience in improvisation from studying jazz and playing in an improvisational band where listening and reacting to one another are key. I also go through lesson books such as the Suzuki books up to the real book.

About Tyler
I am a very passionate music teacher, it's really who I am. I thrive off of opening the doors of music to people and teaching them a foundation upon which to grow. I graduated from UMASS Lowell with a Bachelors in Music Performance in 2014 and have 6 years of teaching experience in and around the Boston area. I play and manage a band called Skyfoot and have for about 3 years now. I have played in 35 different states, playing with all kinds of musicians across the United States. The times I spent playing and learning from the musicians at school and on the road have been some of the most insightful of my life.

Been meeting with Tyler for 4 lessons now and cannot give anything but the highest praise for him. Before we began we set the outline for what
I wanted to do and how he could help - the planning was good but the execution far exceeded anything I could hope for. His insight, technical ability, and highly positive attitude makes him the perfect partner to "re-introduce" me to the guitar (35+ year break in playing). Cons: initially opted for 1/2 hour lesson - too short. Pros: understands my goals, appreciates the musical genre that is important to me, great balance between teaching during the lesson and giving me things to work on on my own, very positive and encouraging attitude....and many more "pros". My suggestion is - if you are thinking of going with him give him a call - very easy to talk to and you will likely find out what I have found - Tyler is top notch!!

Picking up the acoustic guitar for the first time? Or pick up the acoustic guitar for the first time...in a long time? No problem, let's get you stringed up and back into the game. Each lesson is simple and effective, guaranteed to get your fingers in shape and able to reach those frets you had never reached before--sounds a little bit like the intro narrative to Star Trek...?

About Ben
EDUCATION

I graduated from California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) with a B.A. in Public Administration (what does that have to do with the Flamenco guitar?); prior to that degree, I received an A.A. in Political Science (again, what does that have to do with Flamenco guitar?). Currently I am in the process of completing my M.P.A. at CSUF (again…?). The answer to the aforementioned question is that, I enjoy politics and government work—it’s my profession. Nonetheless, I enjoy Flamenco most of all, and I want you to enjoy it too! ¡Vamonos!

EXPERIENCE

The guitar is a wonderful instrument, which I began playing at the age of six. I began my studies with the classical guitar for the first 15 years of playing; and for these past 15 years I have studied the flamenco guitar—playing various concerts, events, and giving professional
instruction.

My experience as a guitarist in Southern California has led me to explore different genres of music, playing for various musical groups ranging from surf rock, concert band, and jazz. As a co-founding member of the band, Ballistico, we opened up for acts such as Dick Dale and the Del Tones, the Grandmothers of Invention (featuring members of Frank Zappa’s original band, “Mothers of Invention”), Avenged Sevenfold, and many others.

EXPERTISE

Having received first hand instruction from the some of the most sough-after professional Flamenco guitarists living and working in Spain (and touring internationally), I offer each of my students an unrivaled degree of authenticity in technique, tone, and style.

LEARNING MATERIALS

Each lesson includes tablature and audio recordings of the material that we will have gone over together. It is completely normal that only a day or two after a lesson—or even a few hours afterwards—the mind can (and will) quickly forget the material. Don’t worry! I’ve got you covered. By having the accompanying written and audio material with you after each lesson, you will be well-prepared for a successful next lesson!

I actually got these lessons for my Mom who is 86 yrs young. After her list lesson she called me and said she was very glad I picked Diego for her instructor, he has the patience that she'd hope for. They both sang together in Spanish it was awesome and she is very excited to continue her classes with Diego.. So I'm going to bumper her up to 45 min. Instead of 30 min on her next set of classes. Thanks Diego for helping make my Mom's dreams of playing classical guitar come true.... her daughter...Susie

Then I was admitted to a professional diploma program at the same Conservatory to study electric guitar where I studied jazz. I also invited lessons of rock guitar. Alongside the guitar, I was taking voice lessons and piano lessons.
