Deborah C.

Las Vegas, NV

If you want to learn basic chord structure so you can play by ear or compose I will help you with this.

About Deborah

I started taking piano lessons at age 6, learned to read music and play mostly classical, my first pop song was Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves by Cher, remember that great riff at the beginning? I was beyond thrilled to actually play it myself. These are the kind of experiences I seek to provide my students, enjoying the thrill of actually making music, not just going over mundane head information. I do combine learning by ear with reading music, teaching theory along with the music making as well. Music is really simple, repetitive and easy to learn. It's a life long gift you give yourself and others. I started singing seriously in 9th grade, I had the greatest teacher, in fact he turned my life around because I had been running with the wrong crowd, but now that he told me I could ...

Mark S.

Las Vegas, NV

About Mark

I just turned 49, and have been playing electric bass and guitar since I was 14, and took up flute a few years, later, and eventually saxophone as well. I graduated from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 1985 with a Bachelors degree in classical guitar, and have been teaching guitar and electric bass for over 25 years. I'm an eclectic player who has studied and integrated many concepts from varying styles including classical, flamenco, jazz, blues, and rock, and I've developed a unique and highly effective teaching method that draws from and builds upon the CAGED system and other established successful methods. My approach to teaching emphasizes simultaneously learning musical concepts, knowledge and skills, and is a highly analytical approach that stresses simplifying, understanding, ...

Mark is a musical genius in my opinion. His patience level is far beyond any teachers in any learning environment I have encountered. He is very connected with my progress and puts 100 percent into every session with me. I feel very fortunate to have crossed paths with Mark and appreciate his time and knowledge he shares with me in a craft he is very passionate about. Fantastic straight forward honest individual. Won't find a better teacher in my opinion!

Mark L.

Las Vegas, NV

You will learn the building blocks of music including notation, keys, meter, rhythm, dynamics, and harmony. You will use elements of music to work with various styles of music based on their own characteristics.

About Mark

I teach according to your individual needs. I help you become successful on piano, violin, viola, bass, guitar. I help you learn the instrument and learn to read music with my own ideas using fun worksheets and songs you really like to learn how to play. I fill your voids with activities such as practice techniques, sub-lessons, and ear training. I guide you toward proper posture, tone development, and the ability to keep a steady beat. I help you develop your musical independence by tweaking lessons to help you succeed. I believe talent is not a factor in learning. Mastering an instrument is the result of effective instruction and step by step guidance toward foundations and skills. I love to teach private lessons because I believe in spreading the word to make the great gift of playing

About Chau

My name is Chau and I am a transplant from Australia who has resided in Las Vegas for the last 10 years.

Chau is great at what she does. She teaches my 7 year old daughter Lindsey how to sing and play piano. When we first started taking her to Chau she was very shy. She has really opened up since working with Chau and now she sings loud and proud all the time. Chau is very patient with her when she is teaching her a new technique. If Lindsey is having a hard time comprehending something, Chau will take different approaches to help her understand. She never gives up on her. Lindsey absolutely loves her lessons with Chau. I'm welcome to stay and watch but I've found that Lindsey focuses better when I'm not there. I feel very comfortable leaving Lindsey with Chau. If you're looking for a great teacher that you can trust with your kids, Chau is definitely the one!

Chau takes my 15 year old daughter for singing lessons. This was the first time she had ever been to lessons and straight away Chau made her feel comfortable and right at home. She has engaged fantastically with my daughter who has completely enjoyed every single one of her lessons; coming home with a huge smile. The utmost professional; Chau stretches my daughter to reach her full potential and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone considering taking lessons.
