I think playing music should be about having fun. Lessons are often linked to visions of people sitting down with an instrument and trying to drill a very difficult piece of music over and over until they can play it right. However, my number one goal every time I sit behind an instrument is to have fun and I try to express that to all my students. A music lesson should be an environment in which one can really test themselves, while at the same time, wear a smile on their face and enjoying the art of learning. Their is nothing more satisfying to a teacher than seeing the gears in a student's head start to roll when they are learning something. Then seeing the look on their face when they finally get it is amazing. A proud expression immediately illuminates them after they realize they have climbed a mountain. The benefit is not only the fact that they have reached the top of the mountain, but the climb lead to a wide open space of possibilities.
In my opinion, the drums are fun for ...

I have been training on the saxophone for upwards of eleven years! I have been giving lessons since 2015, and I am qualified to teach beginners to early-intermediate players. I've earned top chairs in my county, district, and state, and students of mine have gone on to do the same in their own ensembles! I have also played in select honors bands, such as the Great American Marching Band in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I am a skilled teacher, having served as a middle school teacher's assistant and summer camp music instructor. My prices are competitive because I simply want to share the joy of music with you or your student!

Great teacher and skillful. Great tips for today's lessons.

Thank you
Javier
Our first lesson was great. Ashley quickly got where I was and what I needed and we were off to a great start. She gave me tips on how to seat and breathe correctly, how to place my mouth and fingers on the keys to get a better sound, and we started practicing a few notes. Within a couple of days she sent me detailed notes on what we had gone through in the first lesson and gave me some exercises for practicing. Great experience all around for a beginner like me and I look forward to keep learning from her!

As a teacher, a nurturing, encouraging, and comfortable environment can be expected for any student who chooses to pursue trumpet or piano lessons with me. I believe music lessons should be fun and reassuring for students, in addition to, providing constructive feedback for their musical development.

Editing techniques, input and output, audio theory, plug-ins, compression, EQs, multi-tracking, noise reduction...

What's it all mean? What is it about?

I've recorded on many formats and programs over the years, from a pocket tape recorder, to a 4-track, to digital workstations, to PCs with everything from MIDI to USB to Firewire interfaces.

I have recorded drums, guitars, bass, vocals, keyboards, pianos, harmonica, clarinet, tap dancing... just to name a few.
I can show you how to get the most out of your equipment and how to mix and master effortlessly, without the dreaded "killing the vibe" of your recording once editing gets going.

I can show you how to pick out the right microphones, then where to place it, rig it, and take into account sound absorption/reflections. Noise reduction, isolation, gain, equalization, and theory can be discussed. I can help you find materials and even software to create a better recording environment.

I can give tips on playing ...

I strive to treat each student equally no matter how advance the student are. My job as a teacher is to provide students a tool in life. Students will learn the way life works through the art of music. Should the students decide to pursue music or not in the future, I only hope that students will apply what they've learned in music to their everyday problem solving.

Johnny is experienced in teaching cello. His lessons are always passionate, musical, and informative. There are several aspects of his lessons that I'd like to share.

1. Full of Content: He delivers enough details of a new technique with simplification for an easy understanding.
2. Learning Curve: By breaking down and reorganizing the knowledge, he teaches new concepts step by step, from approachable actions to efficient actions.
3. Customization: He helps you find out a suitable solution to grow on the techniques based on your own physical and cognitive characteristics.
4. Experimentation: The correct ways he suggests you do is demonstrated by experimenting with different ways for comparison, which you would not only know what to do but know the reason behind it.

Cello is a beautiful yet complicated instrument. To enjoy it, a great mentorship is necessary and truly valued.
Nina
After coming from a high pressure - pre professional cello teacher, Johnny Mok is a breath of fresh air! I am learning at a faster rate and accomplishing more due to his relaxed and happy teaching style. So glad I found you Jonny!

"Ms. Melody was always very patient with me. She learned the way I played and accommodated to help me improve personally. During the two years that she was my piano teacher, my skills greatly improved. Playing the piano became more simple and music often came naturally. She is incredibly skilled and caring towards all her students, and I was lucky enough to be one of them. I was very sad when I found out she was moving out of my state and would no longer be my piano teacher. Ms. Melody is an amazing woman and her new students will be excited to learn to play the piano."

In the year I've been taking lessons with her, my breath support, technique, and vocal range have all improved significantly - so much so that a high note that I found strenuous a year ago is now almost within my comfort range! She is very receptive to different styles of music, and her suggestions are always challenging, fun, and geared towards developing your voice."

I recommend Ms. Lena for piano lessons. She is skilled at playing and seems very experienced in teaching. I went to her as pretty much a beginner and right away she was able to assess and match my speed. Which I am very grateful for .

One thing I learned about piano is that you should practice a lot :)
