Over the course of the last 19 years, I have accumulated many hours of music performance experience in a variety of styles ranging from heavy metal and classical music, to electronic music and jazz. I am looking for a way to expand my horizons, and to share with others what I have learned over the years. I feel that these varied experiences can help any student achieve the style and sound they are looking for.

About Ryan
I have been playing guitar and bass for 19 years. In that time I have written, recorded and produced 6 albums of original music and toured the west coast three times. In 2011, I began my formal music training at Shoreline Community College. I am well versed in the many genres of rock and roll as well as classical, jazz, country, and worship music. I have performed in jazz groups, worship teams, rock bands, solo classical guitar and played orchestra guitar in Shoreline Community College's production of the play "Working" by Stephen Schwartz. In addition to my varied performance experience I have contributed original compositions to 8 student games produced at DigiPen Institute of Technology. I am a well rounded musician with a ton of relevant experience and I am looking for an opportunity to share that with others.

Well, it was my nine year olds first lesson and we're all feeling optimistic, so that's a good sign! Ryan gave me some pointers on banjo shopping before I ever signed up for lessons, told ya what book we would need, and he showed up with parts I didn't know we needed! Looking forward to next week :)

· Banjo · In studio
I went into banjo lessons not knowing if I could master the instrument or not, being nearly 70 years old. While by no means a master (and never going to be), I have learned so much from Sam and he has shown such patience with me. I often leave my lessons wondering how he ever puts up with me - but he does. His encourgement, laid-back style, expertise and knowledge of music (plus theory) and the banjo is impressive. His good nature makes my lessons so much more pleasant. I would say Sam is a a great teacher for both a beginner or an accomplished musician or in between. He likes to talk and demonstrate (nice and slowly if requested) so I would recommend hour-long lessons at first.

Students learn notation, tab, theory and chords. They will play entire songs along with recordings by their favorite artists. Later they will learn how to improvise a solo or play one from a recording. Fingerpicking styles will also be taught as well as how to chord in the correct style for the music.

Other students may have a specific goal and a custom curriculum will be created to get them there fast. Students are encouraged to listen, keep solid rhythm, try different styles, and have fun.

About Mike
Hi. My name is Mike J. I am a full time music instructor with over 30 years of experience teaching, performing and writing music. I teach both steel string guitar (acoustic or electric) and classical (nylon string) guitar as well as the electric bass and the ukulele.

I incorporate music theory into my lessons but can also teach theory by itself.

I cover rock, folk, pop, blues, jazz, gospel, country or classical. I teach fingerpicking and flat-picking. I strive to find a good balance each lesson between the study of reading, technique and music theory and learning songs you know and like.

I have had excellent results with this approach so that typically ¼ of my students have stayed and studied with me for over 3 years!

Here's an article I wrote on some of the reasons I enjoy teaching:

I have learned so much from Mike in almost a year. He knows so much about the guitar and music theory. Without Mike I would not have progressed as much as I have. Mike has been awesome and very patient. He listens to me when I tell him what I need to work on. I would recommend him a million times over!!!

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

I have been teaching guitar for two years now. My students focus on learning proper technique, proper posture, musicality, music literacy, and how to have an enjoyable relationship with the guitar.

I focus on assuring that my students not only learn how to play the guitar, but how to be musical and expressive while doing so.
