About Timothy
I draw on my experience, as a professional musician of 25 years, in my teaching of others. This experience includes -
Church music; both as a soloist and as a music director.
Touring musician; stage presence, improvisation, sound.
Carnival Cruise Lines staff musician; '99 -2000

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that your interest in the instrument from the "get-go" is what makes the lessons seem to fly by. As you learn, this interest only gets stronger. It is my responsibility as the teacher to make sure your time spent with me is time spent where knowledge is TRANSFERRED to you and not DISPLAYED to you. There will be responsibilities for you as the student, as this is necessary in order for you to get intimately acquainted with your instrument. But my style of teaching is simple & laid back. I feel the need that learning be enjoyable.
..as we both learn together and as you get to the place that you want to be as a musician!...at your pace!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my personal instrument. The student must provide instrument he / she wishes to learn on.

I have taught quite a few bass students even though I am primarily a guitarist. I have years of experience playing myself and have been bassist in various bands.

I have a deep knowledge of the fretboard and music theory so if you want to learn the neck better I can help you out. My specialties are Pop, Blues, and Jazz.

If you like blues, we will learn to play a song pretty much the first day and then we learn theory, different riffs, and more songs as we go on. We also can work on improvisation and accompanying other instruments.

If Jazz is your focus, we will start doing some blues as that is fundamental and you can learn songs fast. Then we'll branch out into arpeggios and some theory. After that we apply the theory to actual jazz standards and learn how to create cool bass lines over chord changes.

If you want to do pop/learn songs you love, I will help you learn good technique and we'll learn things on a song by song basis.

No matter what style you want to ...

About Jaxon
*See further below for lesson details!*
Jaxon the Guitarist: I am a Doctoral Guitar Major at USC studying classical guitar. I have been playing the guitar for 19 years and teaching for 10. My main style is classical, and due to the technical training I have had since I was very young, it has been very easy for me to learn and master other styles such as Rock, Jazz, Blues, Pop, Country, and other styles of guitar. I have a passion for performing and have played hundreds of solo and ensemble concerts. As a classical performer I was the Oregon State champion in their guitar competition for both 2005 and 2006 and won 4th prize at the Sierra Nevada International Classical Guitar Competition 2014. I have played concerts all over the United States as well as in Spain and Mexico. As a performer of other styles I have played in many bands an
d have won high school battle of the bands competitions and recently placed 2nd in BYU's battle of the bands 2011. I was a regional finalist in Guitar Center's "King of the Blues" competition as well.

Jaxon the Teacher: I really love spreading the knowledge I've learned over the years about the guitar, bass guitar, songwriting, music theory, and everything music related to my students. I find a huge sense of fulfillment in seeing my students understand and enjoy learning and making beautiful music. I have a high level of knowledge and skills that I am very willing to use to teach students from the most beginner to the most advanced. Former students of mine have achieved lofty goals ranging from making it into a music program at the college level to winning their school's talent show to being accepted into their school's jazz band.

*** Lesson Details ***
My curriculum is based around YOU. I push my students hard, but I make sure they're always having fun and enjoying playing. I like to get my students playing real songs as fast as possible so they can see results immediately and get excited!

Note: I am trained and specialized in teaching children fingerstyle guitar. I have taught hundreds of kids in schools, privately, and in groups over the last two years. The method I use is proven to give kids the best possible start to music and maximize their potential. If you have children and you want them to learn good technique and music principles through guitar, you don't want to look any further, I promise.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have stools, music stands, and an amp here so all you need to bring is your guitar!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not provide any equipment.
Student must have their own guitar and amp if they play electric.
I do have guitars available for rental.

*** Specialties ***
-Children's fingerstyle guitar
-Proficient in Suzuki method
-Specialist in classical guitar, though proficient up to highly advanced in any guitar style (blues, rock, country, jazz, pop, etc)
-Also very experienced teaching songwriting and music performance

I can teach all genres as well as all the different techniques, such as slap and pop, two handed tapping, etc.

About Nathan
I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

Music is all about feeling. My teaching style is very much based around what makes you comfortable. While I know how important the fundamentals of music are, I also believe that we develop our own style and comfortability as we progress and build our skill. I focus on everything from the ground up. You can never ask too many questions, and I am here to help you find your musical identity! :)

About Layla
"Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy" - Ludwig Van Beethoven.

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my profile! My name is Layla - like the awesome Eric Clapton song :) I am an aussie residing in the big state of Texas and have been playing and teaching music for 10 years. When I was 12 years old, my parents bought me an electric guitar for my birthday. I learnt to play and I was lucky enough to have a talented brother who was learning the drums, so we were able to play together a lot and learn from each other. Jamming out to Nirvana in our upstairs bedroom was a very frequent occurrence – smells like teen spirit was the first song we learnt. This started the basis of the next 5 years of our musical careers. The first band I was in was called “ The Nobodies”, 3 teenagers playing cover gigs at pubs and clubs, learni
ng the ropes young, and I could never be more thankful for it. This band eventually changed names to “The River City Rumblers” and in the year of 2010 we appeared on national Australian Television on the show “Australia’s Got Talent”. It was really an amazing experience and exposed me to not only a huge audience, but the music industry itself. I continued to pursue my musical passions for years to come, this included teaching. I began teaching guitar to young students (around 8 years and up) with one on one lessons. I taught out of my home in the lounge room at first, then out of a studio that we eventually built. I also had the opportunity to teach young groups in a classroom environment at a local school. I would teach groups of 3-5 kids ranging from ages 6-12, split up into age groups. I moved around Australia a little to tried and break into the music industry, then moved back home, studied, until life brought me my husband and now I am in the USA. Somewhere along the line though, adulthood got in the way. I lost music for a while, and got caught up in the 9-5 jam. I have decided it is time to put my passion first. I absolutely adore teaching. It is so very rewarding to me and I hold it very dear to my heart. Combine it with music, and I am living the dream! I would love the chance to share that with you or whomever you may be reading this for. Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to meeting my future students!
