Paul R.

Book Now

Every student has their own way of learning, and I will find that way! The beginner is brought through the traditional, classic method. But then I branch into modern styles, helping the student to find an original voice and perform music that resonates with today's listening audience. Together, we will explore American music that brings the intermediate and advanced student to understand blues and jazz improvisation, as well as composition.

About Paul

Motivation to practice is the key. Working with the parents, I like to make the lesson fun for the student, while getting the student to work hard and to keep them focused on success. Both current and former students and their parents are eager to provide references. I've taught all ages; in mu

Hello, I am Evan W.! Growing up in a musical family, music surrounded me. I remember going around trying to figure out what ever I could get my hands on. As someone who grew up surrounded by music, having a chance to take music there was like taking a factory tour of a product that you liked. I finally got to figure out why I liked what I liked, and how to make new combinations of these elements to create music of my own (composition). This is probably why I am passionate about Music Theory. I hope you will learn to enjoy theory as much as I do. I have scored very high score in Music Theory and have passed the College Board Music Theory Examination with one of the highest scores ( 5|4). I am looking forward to having a lesson with you!

Classical guitars can differ from other guitars and learning to play differs as well. In addition to playing a classical repertoire, the manner in which a classical guitarist plays is extremely important, plucking the strings with the right hand fingers without the use of a pick. In teaching classical guitar, I find ind ways to make lessons entertaining while also being educational incorporating both technique and theory into lessons. I'll work directly with you
to develop a curriculum that will achieve your musical goals.

About MrTony

Passionate about sharing my love of the guitar with students of all ages, I've been teaching for more than 30 years. A trained Flamenco guitarist, I found, at the tender age of 7, my passion when I heard the world-renowned Flamenco guitarist Sabicas. Studying Flamenco since then, I began, during

My daughter finds Mr Tony to be very patient, calm and enthusiastic about her piano playing. "He never gives up on me," she says.
He mixes classical with fun music from her favorite, Taylor Swift. Whenever there has been a scheduling conflict he is very flexible and open to makeup sessions. We enjoy his style of piano reaching and have been very pleased so far.

Excellent teacher! Joe is so easy-going and knows how to tailor his lessons to your experience level. It felt like sitting with an old friend and learning how to play, even though we'd never met before. Looking forward to growing as a bassist!

"I first started taking lessons with Rick Rossi at the age of 12. I came in and knew little about music but Rick was a great teacher. He used easily absorbable methods about things that other musicians have trouble explaining. It was soon very clear to me that Rick Rossi was an exceptional musician. He could play funky jazz lines, and transition to beautiful classical melodies and play them with such ease and fluidity. It wasn’t until that I had taken some lessons with other teachers that I knew what I had in my life. Rick is a masterful jazz improviser, and I had learned the secrets of a pro’s pro. His methods gave me an edge over the other musicians in my school jazz band. The teachers noticed it and gave me lots of soloing. I was soon able to play chord changes shortly after. The “Rick Rossi” method breaks down a lot of the questions people have about what types of techniques saxophonists use when they solo. Using Rick Rossi’s method has opened lots of doors for me musically. As a result I have played in numerous bands and as soon as Rick thought I was ready he hired me to play in his bands. He is an exceptional musician with tons of experience under his belt. He has played with numerous big-name musicians in the industry. Not only does he teach and play music, he runs his own music agency called Rossi Music that hires and books some of the best musicians in the Los Angeles music scene. His teaching has helped me to become more aware of what it takes to be a professional musician in the real world of the Los Angeles music scene."
