She later went on to pursue a formal education in Classical Vocal Performance and Jazz technique from California State University, Los Angeles.

Melissa J is patient, warm, and intelligent

I can easily recommend Melissa J. She is bright, warm, patient and enthusiastic about teaching music. Our son instantly connected with her, and he has remembered every single thing she has taught him. If he had his way, he would take a lesson with her everyday! Big thanks !

Good instructor, goes at your pace/ability level

I've only been taking lessons with Rob for 3 weeks, but so far so good. After an 18 year hiatus from playing the flute, I decided it was time to go back to it. He's customized the lessons to go as fast as I am able to pick it up, as it is coming back to me quickly. I appreciate not getting stuck in a "set" order of lessons. He's knowledgeable, professional, a genuinely nice person and he is a very good, easy to understand instructor.

INSPIRED LEARNINGS!

We laugh a lot when I goof up and he kindly leads me to where it will be better. We have had only 3 lessons so far and I have practiced every day, sometimes more than once per day and he says he can tell. Rob is a very experienced teacher and musician.

About Rob

Hey Everyone! I’m Rob! I’m an instructor with over 12 years of teaching experience. I studied writing and received my B.A. at the University of Florida and received a Certificate with a concentration in Songwriting and Performance at Berklee School of Music in Boston. I remember so fondly learning guitar when I was younger. I sucked! But I loved it so much I played all the time. And in no time I was playing songs on the radio that I loved. As a teacher, I completely understand the learning curve and have tricks to help you out in those difficult times. Lessons with me are constructed from scratch and tailored to exactly what you want to learn. If you are training to get into a college program, or preparing for a show, or just looking to learn the instrument, I will bring the same ...

My brother told me he found this great guitar teacher, and I was skeptical because he has been playing guitar for a long time and has never really sounded good. Two weeks after he mentioned him, all of the sudden he didn't suck any more. He was actually kinda good. So I tried a lesson with him and Wow! Within my first lesson I was already able to play a song! I can't afford lessons since I'm in school right now, but my brother still takes lessons with him. Even though I no longer take lessons with him I still call Rob and ask him questions about guitar all of the time, and he always makes time for me. I don't know where my brother or I would be without him. Great Teacher. Great Friend.

Fantastic Teacher, Fantastic Person!!!

Robby is a phenomenal guitar teacher and player. From Music Theory to basic chord progressions he has single handedly taught me how to play the guitar. He kept me challenged and engaged and wanting more at all times. I highly recommend Robby if you are looking to pick up a guitar for the first time or get out of a guitar funk after 3 years! You will learn a lot and pick up a friend along the way.

About Rebecca-Lynn

Pepperdine University Graduate, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance and English Literature, and am excited to enrich others with the indispensable knowledge of music.

Title to my review.

I'd like to first point out that I knew the entire time how to write a review; I just wanted to wait until our last lesson was over to write it. Now that our 8th and final lesson is finished, I give all of my praise to Rebecca for helping me understand the astonishingly intricate piano. Her guidance and wisdom gave me the desire to pursue a minor in musical performance at the college i'm attending. To sum all of this up, because I only have a certain amount of space to fit a review that could be as long as The Count of Monte Cristo! Consider this my 5 star, 10 out of 10 approval of this women not only as a mentor, but as a friend as well, and I hope that whatever path she leads, that it be as uplifting as the one I took in our lessons together.

Sheila S. Woodland Hills, CA

I've been teaching piano for 2 years and my students have gone on to play very successful recitals. Within the first few lessons, you'll learn the fundamentals of music and piano technique and as time goes on you'll be able to play and read whole songs. I specialize in classical piano, typically using Bastien method books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Sheila

I have earned a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Redlands. As a professional singer, I have performed in numerous concerts and operas. I've sung in both choral and solo settings, as well as fully staged productions. Throughout my education, I have played piano and even participated in Certificate of Merit testing. These experiences have all helped shape me into a well rounded singer. In lessons, I devote equal amounts of time to technique and repertoire. We will always begin by warming up, and working on some exercises. Then we will implement your new techniques into your repertoire, which I will tailor to your specific needs and wants. Above all, though, I want to help you realize your dreams as a musician! Looking forward to getting started!
