About Bruce
I received my degree from the University of Utah in instrumental music education. Along with specialized training in band and orchestra instruments, I also offer lessons in guitar, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica in playing and performance. When a student has a song they want to learn, I focus lessons around the requested song. I also have an extensive library of songs that I utilize. My music methodology is built around a song book that also has a CD attached. This has proven to be a lot of fun for all my students. It makes practice time more fun as they "play along" with the CD.

*** Lesson Details ***
With folk instruments I start by teaching the student basic chords and basic chord sequences.
In the beginning I stress the proper hand position and I spend some time perfecting the best finger position. This eliminates a lot of pr
oblems that will come up later. For the first songs I teach them songs that use those same chords and chord sequences. Soon after that I teach them how to read music. This is vital to being able to play lead on any folk instrument. As the student progresses he or she is exposed to many different styles of music I also will teach several different picking and strumming patterns. .The student is also taught about more advanced chord progressions and music theory that can be used in any situation.

For brass instruments I teach techniques in developing breath control and embouchure development. Attention to these details will eliminate problems that could come up in the future. The student will learn how to read music from the start. As the student develops these basic techniques I begin working on tone development and breath support. As the student progresses he or she will be exposed to many different musical styles.
During the past two years I have been working for the Clark County School District as a Para Pro. I help students that need extra help to be more successful on their instrument.
I specialize in teaching the lower brass family. That is the Tuba, Trombone and the Baritone. I also train new teachers in the lower brass family if the new teachers has no experience when they first start out.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room: Instruments, bookshelves, open space, additional seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can rent a guitar/banjo.
I can provide an amplifier.
I can provide PA and analog recording equipment.

*** Specialties ***
Developed method for teaching very young students as well as adolescents and adults.

Bruce is great! I am an absolute beginner and he is very patient and I love that he teaches through song (after learning basic chords of course). Overall, he is a wonderful teacher.

About Jonathan
All of my past experiences lead into my real passion: Teaching. Whether it's conducting throughout Europe or singing as featured soloist with the Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra and Oregon Symphony, I use past experience to teach students about musical and healthy singing techniques. I am currently a Doctoral candidate at UNLV. I am excited to incorporate new instructional techniques into my teaching that I learned from conventions and coursework.

Most of all, I believe that singing should be a fun expression of yourself. It should be an outlet for creation no matter the skill or age level of the singer.

I hold a Master of Education degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where I specialized in Secondary Vocal Music. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music (Vocal Performance and Choral Conducting) from Oregon State Un
iversity. I am an active choral director and singer in the Las Vegas Valley and sing opera semi-professionally.

*** Lesson Details ***
Breathing is the key to singing and speaking. After a few months in my studio, a student will know how to sing healthfully and on the breath. If a student wants to focus on more popular styles like rock, pop, or country, I can instruct you on the best ways to maintain vocal health and increase the power, range and agility of your voice. If a student wants to sing in one of the major Classical languages (Italian, German, or French) I have extensive training in the pronunciation of each.

I have taught singer/songwriters how to convey their creative images. I have also taught adult singers how to contribute more of their own sound to their community or church choirs. All doors are open for a healthful singer!

*** Studio Equipment ***
extra room with piano, recording equipment, seating

*** Travel Equipment ***
All a student would need is a piano or keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Classical and operatic voice, popular genres including Rock, Pop, and Broadway.

*** Choir Opportunity ***
Check out the Battle Born Chorale for the choir that I conduct here in Las Vegas.

I have taken lessons from Cindy for two years now. She is great with getting rid of my bad habbits and wrong techniques that my previous teacher did not care to correct. I appreciate her patience and effort very much. I noticed all her other students play very well in recital as well. I only wish I had her as my piano teacher many years earlier.

About Jay
My name is Jay and I am a multi-instrumentalist and music engineer, who is eager to teach and create. I am college-studied for recording and performance. I have a big background in music theory while playing bass, guitar and drums. I am happy to teach online as well as come over to your setup and help you achieve what you are looking for. Music should be about finding your voice and how you best to express that. It takes hard work and if you're willing to put the time in, I'd like to help.

I am most proficient on bass and working in production with Logic but I am familiar with Pro Tools, Cubase, and Ableton Live.

About Charles
I’ve been an active musician for over 40 years. I performed in rock bands from middle school through high school until I started my training at Berklee. After graduating with a degree in composition, I resumed touring with rock and pop bands until my early thirties. For the next ten years I taught privately and released 5 recordings of art music that received enthusiastic reviews both in the USA and in Europe. Three of these recordings were electronic and microtonal in nature, and two were solo piano recordings. Also during this time I became a certified teacher in the State of Connecticut.

After this phase of my life, I took a position as head of the music department at Proctor Academy in Andover, NH. I ran every aspect of the department for 5 years before leaving to focus on my studies in film score music. After completing an 18-month
course with Music for the Media (London) I opened a studio in New Hampshire at the granite Media Center and scored 15 TV episodes and 7 films before moving to Los Angeles for additional opportunities. I’m currently living in Las Vegas, still playing and composing, and still loving the music!
