If you ever wanted to know how it all fits together, now's the time to learn! Why does music sound good to us? Why do certain chords have certain qualities? What is the 'science' behind the sound? I can answer these questions and set you up to shine in any musical setting with a knowledge of music theory.

About Evan

One of my favorite subjects is harmony, or music theory. In these lessons we will cover chords and scales, tonal analysis, classical tonality, counterpoint, voice leading, post-tonal music theories, the harmonic language of jazz, composition, and more

Jan is a wonderful teacher and we recommend him highly to students of any age. My son really likes Jan's teaching method and appreciates that he is so musically current and kind -- high praise from a teenager! Jan is easygoing but is also innovative and thorough in his approach, and it's been a pleasure for the rest of us to get to know him too. I haven't always been successful in the past at getting my son to focus on lessons but Jan has a way of encouraging that progress along. As a result, my son has learned a lot in a short time and really enjoys the piano now.

To whom It may concern,

This is a letter of recommendation for Jan Jurchak as a teacher of piano instruction for young children. He is a man of high technical skill and ability, yet he can still make the basic movements fun and entertaining for kids of all ages. My 8 and 10 year old children took to his kind manner and positive teaching techniques immediately, he was their instructor for two years. Their aptitude for the instrument grew as their desire to perform better for their
teacher amplified with each session. They gladly did their practices on their own, in hopes of excelling and impressing their new mentor every lesson. They were
encouraged to think about the instrument in their own way; to bring in pieces of music that they liked and wanted to learn. In short time, both children began to
read and write music. Long after Jan has left our lives, the girls love of piano has continued to expand and develop; truly the gift that keeps giving. I could not more highly recommend this man as a music instructor for children. You would be lucky to have him!
Sri Utami
To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is to attest to the character and proficiency of our former keyboard instructor Jan Jurchak who instructed our twin, 12 year old girls for 2 years from the ages of 9 through 11. Our girls were able to progress from having no proficiency on the piano up to a middle intermediate level through the instruction of Jan whom we received once weekly 30-45 minute lessons Jan has demonstrated integrity in his work and dedication to teaching our young children and as a result has earned our trust and respect as an outstanding example
We have observed Jan work with others in his initial as an instructor for Spotlight Arts Center in Saugus, California and later as our private instructor. Throughout our working relationship Jan freely assisted us in providing useful feedback to enhance learning between lessons and build confidence in their ability to play the instrument. Jan demonstrated a consistently high level of professionalism and expertise in his craft. As such my wife and I are highly recommending Jan for the position of Music/Keyboard instructor that he is pursuing.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions, clarifications or concerns regarding this statement of recommendation.
Sincerely,
Vincent Kondo and Sri Utami

I believe that there are players and then there are musicians. Theory is the key to achieving that next level. The more you understand your instrument and how music is related, the better you will be in achieving your long-term goals.

"Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!"

Ahmad makes you feel comfortable and really understands the way that people learn and how to teach in the most effective way. The guitar is a tough instrument to learn and you want to learn from someone knowledgeable and patient and that's exactly what Ahmad is."

"As a preface, I am a beginner-intermediate music producer, so very much of what I make is still rather amateur. I have spent tens of hours watching different YouTube videos and reading blogs about music production trying to learn how to get better. If I had to put a time frame, I'd say I've been producing as a hobby for about 4 years now.

Anyway, I had a 1-hour lesson with Mark and I feel like I learned more about mixing in that 1-hour than I have in the months watching YouTube videos. Mark is super knowledgeable about music production and its techniques and he had answers to all of my questions. If you're on the fence about booking, I would highly suggest booking with Mark as he is professional, knowledgable, and easy to understand as he breaks down his methods in a beginner-friendly manner - things some other producer mentors struggle with I feel.

I would definitely book again with Mark in the future. If you want to level up your production, Mark is your best bet."
