About Allen
Hello! My name is Allen and I've been playing guitar for 16 years, and teaching for the past 10. I've been performing and writing since the age of 16 with bands in many styles. I'm originally from Santa Maria, CA, and I obtained my knowledge of music theory, performance, and songwriting skills from taking private lessons in the central coast at a place called Coelho's Academy of Music. Our head instructor, Jerry Coelho, was a student of the late Howard Roberts and was one of the first graduating students to who helped to establish Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT), currently known as The Musicians Institute. After dedicating 4 years of private lessons under Jerry and his other top instructors, my hard work payed off and I was given the opportunity take students of my own. For the following two years, I've managed to consistently teach
40 students per week. I decided to move forward and take my musical experience with me to San Diego, where I currently teach, write, record, and perform my music with others who have similar goals and aspirations. I love playing in as many bands as possible. The main one I play in is called Quel Bordel. Some of the bands I've played in have given me the opportunity to perform with local and big named artists such as D.J. Artistic, Gary Wilson of Stones Throw Records, The Aristocrats, Terry Bozzio, Alan Holdsworth, and Tony Levin. As a full time musician and performer, I'm typically out gigging anywhere from 2-5 a week. As a teacher, I'm here to help you with where you want to be with guitar. Whether it's rock, pop, funk, hip hop, reggae, jazz, blues, indie, folk, and country, I can help you with the technical and theoretical side of things.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal- To get you to become better than me. I find myself as an easy going teacher, and can provide that push when I see students getting more engaged in their lessons. I typically teach out of two main books, and it's optional for students to have their own copy of my recommended method books. I emphasize heavy chord vocabulary and steady rhythm. I believe that in order to be a good lead player, you would have to be a great rhythm player. As we develop technique, you can expect me to incorporate theory as to maintain an even share of the HOW's and WHY's. Moreover, expect to DO something with our lessons. Repetition is the mother of learning, and sometimes it comes down to the idea of 'monkey see, monkey do' before we can have in depth conversations about the application of your lessons in real situations. To me, music is very creative. So I'm a big believer on improvisation with both chords and scales. I believe in practical application when learning the songs you want to learn. So every student will have a unique way of learning the fundamentals only necessary to their personal goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Two small practice amps, cables, method books (personal copies), extra picks, extra guitar, music stand, blank sheet music/tabs for notes, extra strings, music stand, metronome, tuner

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music stand, extra guitar (if needed), blank staff/tab paper, tuner, metronome, battery powered amp, cables, extra strings (if needed), picks

*** Specialties ***
I primarily use Hal Leonard method books for beginners when it comes to reading and basic technique. For those who want to learn at the intermediate/advance level, I use the book called Jazz and Pop Guitar (chords and progressions) and Scales and Modes in the Beginning which can cover all aspects of chord theory and improvisation. I model my curriculum off of my prior lesson plans from my teachers ( based off of Berklee and GIT) My genres specialize in rock, funk, jazz, indie rock, folk, country, blues, pop

My daughter is very shy which is why she won't try new things very often. However, after her first lesson with Allen she was excited. She said he made the lesson very fun and made her very comfortable. She learned her first two chords and is eager to practice transitioning between the chords and is looking forward to her next lesson with Allen.

About Polina
I am an experienced classical pianist with honorable degrees obtained from the most prestigious musical institutions in the world - State Academy of Music (Russian conservatory of music) located in Minsk, Belarus, as well as The College of Saint-Rose, Albany, New York, Unites States. Piano has been my main area of concentration since I was five years old, so I consider myself to be a top professional in the music field.

I really enjoy working with highly motivated students and welcome various ages and levels. I have worked both with professional musicians and beginner level music enthusiasts. As a teacher and piano soloist, I have worked in various countries including Russia, Italy, France and the United States. My international teaching experience has been showing wonderful results, and I am proud of my students winning the highest p
laces in the international auditions, competitions and festivals worldwide.

My thoroughly developed teaching method is built on the best combination of Russian and European traditions in music education, and it is intended to build and advance skills in reading, technique, theory, to enrich music appreciation by exploring compositions of variety of styles and genres, to discover the internal abilities and approach to an instrument, and master performing techniques.

Wonderful first online lesson for my daughter! My daughter had been taking local lessons for a while but had to abandon them due to other commitments. Polina's methods and instruction in the first lesson have already exceeded our expectations. I feel our daughter will start progressing much faster now and start appreciating classical music under Polina's guidance.

I have been teaching private lessons since 2008, but have been studying music since I was only 4 with non stop private and in school lessons. I now have my Bachelor's degree in Music education and am working toward my Masters in Music performance and Instruction.
I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it. Music is great for self expression a great Escape or an easy pass-time. It's nothing that should be stressful, but the opposite and that is what my lessons aim to do. Provide an educational, but fun and expressive learning experience to carry with you or your child throughout your lives.

Tiffanie is great! She has a wealth of knowledge and is super encouraging. I have really enjoyed taking lessons with her. One of my favorite aspects is that she doesn't want to change your sound. She really is focused on helping you identify your unique sound and really perfecting that without changing you as an artist. I love working with Tiffanie and would recommend that you work with her if you are looking for someone to help you perfect your own sound. She is also super knowledgeable when it comes to singing to record versus live performance and always gives great advice. I have also had the pleasure of working on my own song with her and she has been able to really help me clean up my sound so that I am able to really get the message across while still sounding like me.

About Trevor
I am a professional bassist and teacher living in Park Slope, Brooklyn. In 2017 I earned a Bachelors of Music with a concentration in Instrumental Music Education from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. I have experience teaching students from age 5 up through adulthood, and I have taught several students with special needs. I am proud to say that students of mine have won concerto competitions, earned first-degree ratings at solo and ensemble festivals, and have gone on to continue their study at the collegiate level.

As a bassist, I am fluent in Classical, Jazz, and Popular styles. Before moving to New York, I played with multiple orchestras and chamber groups around the Detroit area, including the Dearborn Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Jazz Festival Brass and Percussion Ensemble, and others. I have been fortunate to share the stag
e with the likes of Sean Jones, Joshua Redman, Jason Moran, as well as Leonard Slatkin.

I would love to get to know what you or your student's learning goals are! Please feel free to contact me at your convenience so we can start making great music!

After a month of lessons with Trevor I feel I must express my appreciation and satisfaction. Learning the cello for a beginner is not an easy task, but Teacher/instructor Trevor makes it happen with his patience, his practical approach and his professionalism with a very healthy attitude it all works. His understanding to what me as the student want is amazing. He doesn't waste time and he keeps me going ahead, and the success is actually reflecting. He has the technique for every step of the way. I am amazed how much I already accomplished in such short time, Thanks to Trevor for teaching effectively. I look forward for every lesson.

· Upright Bass · In studio
Allow me to start by saying that I am a violist, not a bassist. I had never so much as held a bass before in my life. However, after a few months of Trevor's patient guidance, I found myself reasonably confident not only in my ability to hold a bass but also somewhat in my ability to play it whilst doing so.

Aside from his patience, I appreciated his flexibility and approachability. Of course, I did my best to practice and attend all of our lessons, but if, for some reason, I was unable to do so, he would always work something out in a fair and rational manner. Not only did I feel comfortable asking questions, but I felt encouraged to do so. His hands-on approach of not just showing or telling but both was refreshing, as was his focus on the goals of student (me, in this particular situation). If there was a particular topic I wanted to discuss - vibrato, for instance - he would incorporate it into lesson plans piece by piece as I advanced to the necessary skill level, without losing a sense of the comprehensive "big picture." At the same time, I never felt rushed or lost during lessons or while practicing; his pacing was excellent, and there is no question that he absolutely knows the instrument well.

In summation, I learned a lot in a short period with Trevor, and strongly recommend this instructor.

About Alex
Hi, there! My name is Alex and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2015 and have loved helping my student learn how to improvise and have fun playing the saxophone in a more creative and self expressed way. I went to the University of Northern Iowa and earned a degree in Music with an emphasis in jazz studies in 2014. I'm a pretty easy going and fun person however I don't let my niceness get in the way of accomplishing our set goals and getting better at the horn. My teaching style is very dynamic in that it is tailored to whatever it is YOU are passionate about with music and finding a way to make great music. Not only could we learn how to play the sax, but I also have experience in writing music, recording, networking, creating and developing a band, and developing your own unique style of music. I look f
orward to helping you reach your goals and helping you share your gift of music to the world.

About Marc
Hi I'm Marc, a professional French hornist & founder of a music edtech startup in San Francisco.

I am so excited about helping musicians learn and achieve their goals. Everybody has musical talent. But far too often, music learners don't get the right teacher to help them express that talent.

Even though I started playing music at age 5, my own talents stayed hidden for far too long. I struggled at music all through middle school and high school. When I was 18, I went to Northwestern and studied learning sciences.

Ho ho ho! After graduating I applied science to learning French horn, studied at America's #1 music school (Indiana University), and got a full time orchestra job in just 2 years. I played 6 seasons with Hong Kong Philharmonic. I also served as Professor of Horn at HK Baptist University.

After learning Kung Fu & Yog
a, I applied those to music, and my career went even further. I've recorded & toured with San Francisco Symphony, played with Yo-Yo Ma, and even run my own music learning camps.
