Jan is a fun and dynamic instructor whose patience and attention to the needs of her students has been instrumental in helping my daughter enjoy and thrive in her voice and piano lessons. While some instructors, in our experience, have been excellent musicians but poor teachers, Jan's style and flexibility make her an ideal person for passing on her knowledge to students, so that they in turn develop their own musical talents and shine. Many thanks, Jan, for your gifts!

About Samuel
I've been a performing singer-songwriter since 1993. My influences include Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Richie Havens. I've been teaching private lessons since 2011.

We'll begin with major scales. That way, your fingers will get to know the notes that comprise the chords you'll eventually be learning. Eventually, you'll be able to play whole songs with both major and minor chords and play solos over them (also based on the scales).

I'm a primarily self-taught musician. The bulk of my knowledge came from listening to and imitating delta blues artists such as Robert Johnson and Mississippi John Hurt. Though you will have learned to play campfire standards in fewer than eight lessons, the blues (particularly the form originating from the Mississippi Delta) is the foundation of ALL A

merican music. The better you understand and are able to play it, the more options you will have created for yourself musically. Once you've gained confidence playing the blues, I'll introduce informal jazz. For more information about my curriculum, you may review my published articles on TakeLesson's Teacher Blog. Please note that I'm available to teach both in-person and online: http://takelessons.com/blog/learning-guitar-without-sheet-music http://takelessons.com/blog/reasons-to-learn-guitar-scales http://takelessons.com/blog/beginner-guitars http://takelessons.com/blog/blues-chord-progressions http://takelessons.com/blog/best-guitar-solos http://takelessons.com/blog/guitar-barre-chords http://takelessons.com/blog/learning-guitar-styles http://takelessons.com/blog/expand-your-guitar-solos http://takelessons.com/blog/maximize-acoustic-guitar-lifespan http://takelessons.com/blog/are-you-ready-to-play-guitar-solos http://takelessons.com/blog/blues-guitar-exercise http://takelessons.com/blog/writing-a-song-on-guitar-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/writing-a-song-on-guitar-lyrics-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/guitar-tips-for-open-mic-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/preparing-for-bluegrass-guitar-lessons-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/2-simple-tricks-to-play-country-guitar-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/how-to-write-a-jazz-guitar-song-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/famous-guitar-players-who-are-not-virtuosos-z01 http://takelessons.com/blog/5-jazz-guitar-licks-z01

This was my first private lesson with Dr. Daniel, most importantly he made me feel very comfortable and I wasn't afraid to sing notes in front of him. Dr.Daniel took the time to gather my history and take notes about what I said. Dr. Daniel was very thorough for our first visit, even though I had only booked my first class to be 30 minutes. I look forward to taking more lessons with him and am excited for our next lesson! Thank you so much!

About Christina
My name is Christina and I am very passionate about the vocal arts, specifically Opera. Opera was a surprise in my life that I discovered in college. I am now currently pursuing my MM degree in vocal arts at UCLA. The classical technique can provide a great foundation to healthy singing, ensuring a long and healthy vocal life.

Along side opera and other genres of singing, I believe basic knowledge in piano is extremely beneficial in improving musicality and an understanding of each piece. Piano greatly improves sight reading and ones ability to learn music quickly and efficiently. It can allow one to develop an understanding of harmony and context within each unique piece of music.

I would love to help and guide those interested in music, specifically classical voice, opera, musical theater, and piano. I would love to share the gre
at joy it brings me with others and pass down what I have learned over the years. I have completed courses in music pedagogy and education alongside my degree, and believe in shaping my lessons around each individual's learning style so that each student may continue to grow while having fun. Helping each student develop their own unique musical identity is one of the main goals with these lessons.

Scott is absolutely FABULOUS! He is everything you need in a vocal coach and more. I signed up for lessons with Scott to prep for some Broadway auditions. I'm a dancer who knows nothing about singing in an audition. Scott to the rescue! He helped me put together a songbook, taught me how to properly speak to the accompanist, and act out the lyrics I was singing. He has such a great background and knowledge in musical theater and it shows! Scott has a great personality and is so much fun to work with! 10 out of 5 stars!
