Livermore, CA

View Full Profile

I place a strong emphasis on fundamentals like technique, theory and musicality. By taking a measured and detail oriented approach I can help you make quick progress through whatever musical style you'd like.

About Andrew
I'm a focused but easygoing guitarist and musician with over a decade of experience teaching students of various skill levels and backgrounds. I enjoy helping students discover their love of music and reach their personal musical goals, whatever they may be.

I started teaching as the guitar technique tutor at my local community college before striking off on my own. In 2014, I went back to school to complete my bachelor's degree in guitar performance, after which I received a master's degree from the prestigious San Francisco Conservatory, where I had the privilege if working with some of the finest musicians in the field today. I would love to help you hone your musical skills!

Andrew is such a great teacher! I'm a beginner guitar player who wanted to learn some of the basics and work on my technique, and Andrew was so patient and really took the time to work with me. Very easy-going and helpful, even though I know I'm not the best player. He clearly knows what he's doing when it comes to anything guitar-related and I cannot wait to set up another lesson. I already feel more confident in my abilities! Thanks Andrew!

classical and jazz/ rhythm and classical/ pick and fingerstyle

About Jonathan
I started my musical education in a children'€™s choir at age 6.
When I turned 8 years old, I began piano lessons. I started violin
at 9 and trombone at 10. After studying numerous instruments I am now proficient on the piano, electric/acoustic bass, and guitar. Having completed my tour of duty in the U.S. Army, I am currently on the Dean'€™s list as a music/audio production major, and plan to continue my music education until I earn at least a masters in performance and composition. I started my teaching career at Milestones in Music, a local studio, as an independent contractor, and was able to gain valuable experience, and through my membership in the National Association for Music Education(NAfME) I was able to fine tune my curriculum. I am a former student member of the Grammy U Recording Academy, and have had opportunities to
work with, and learn from a lot of different musicians. (The Recording Academy is the organization that created the most prestigious
award in music, the Grammy). I am the band leader at my church Montco Bible Fellowship. I have experience as an audio tech in the studio and for a live stage, and have consulted for organizations looking to setup a sound system/studio. I enjoy recording my own music in my home studio, and learning to play new instruments. I hope to pass my love for music to the next generation!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very laid back instructor... as you will find out! I understand that not everyone learns at the same rate; however, I am a perfectionist and don't allow students to advance until they have learned a particular skill. I would rather a student take forever to learn a song, and practice it with good technique, than be able to play it right away with poor form and posture! I reinforce the value of working toward goals and celebrate with students when they reach them.  I understand that every student has different interests and reasons for wanting to learn an instrument... I try to focus on the areas that are of interest to the student, because a student who is enjoying themself will excel.  This does not mean that the subjects and skills that are not of interest will not be taught, because I also believe in being a well-rounded musician. I teach both jazz (theory/improvisation) and classical (composed) music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is currently not optimal for teaching... I hope to change this soon!!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson books and other learning materials, but expect to be reimbursed. I expect the student to have their own instrument/equipment. Piano students are required to have a piano or a keyboard with 88 weighted keys (hammer-action), a piano bench and a pedal. Guitar/bass students must have an acoustic/electric guitar/bass with a strap or footstool, pick, and cable and amplifier if applicable! Digital audio students must have their own computer, Digital Audio workstation (software), digital audio interface, speakers/headphones and midi controller. ALL STUDENTS MUST PROVIDE A NOTEBOOK (college rule or staff)!!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and jazz piano! I am more than proficient at most production software including: reason, fl studio, ableton live... and other editing software such as sony sound forge, audacity, etc...

Theory, ear training and fun music!

About Joseph
I am a special education public school teacher. I also teach private music students. Since I am used to working with Individualized Education Plans for school students, (IEP"s), I work hard to find what works for each student. My students and I have a lot of fun finding their "sweet spots" in learning music. Seeing them smile after learning a music lesson really makes my day! Our next generation is a joy to instruct, but music rewards students of all ages. Please send me a question by TakeLessons.com e-mail system, or call them to start!

About Natalie H.

Yalaha, FL

View Full Profile

Beginner to Intermediate. Rhythm, tab, and musical notation.

About Natalie
Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, at the age of 9, Natalie knew music was something that was just a part of who she was. Writing songs on the piano before lessons could be scheduled, Natalie found herself immersed in a medium that would bring her joy for the rest of her life.

By age 14 Natalie had won several trophies competing in Classical piano with the Illinois Music Association.

As an adult, she would go on to fill her life with the world of music as a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist.

Graduating from Elmhurst College (1997) with a Bachelor's in Music, Natalie received high accolades earning a membership in the Lambda Sigma Psi Music Honor Society.

During her college years, Natalie created and owned a local music publication called, "The Local Buzz". At this moment she had discovered her
desire to teach. "I just wanted everyone I knew in music to know and use what I was learning, or had learned from the music classes, professionals I had been meeting and working with, and my overall music life experiences". By 1997, Natalie was signed to an independent label and embarked on a new adventure.

"Music is an adventure, but without the foundation and passion I had as a child, I would have never landed where I did. I truly LOVE to teach and share what I know about piano, and the world of music. Music is what I know, and know best. Helping to create a solid foundation and build confidence in someone embarking on a journey in music is the most rewarding profession I have ever had the honor of participating in."

*** Lesson Details ***
Natalie enjoys teaching students of any age, but specializes in piano, voice and beginning guitar, tailoring lessons to each individual's goals and reasons for learning whether it be for personal pleasure or professional performance.

Keeping things lighthearted and fun, Natalie breathes confidence into each student using her sense of humor, and down-to-earth personality.

Feeding off 40 years of personal and professional experiences, Natalie patiently listens to the student's desires, needs and notates their learning patterns, allowing for growth at their own pace.

Natalie's goal is to Make Music Matter to you and create a foundation that will allow you to continue to find joy in making music for the rest of your life.

***Lesson Prices*** include clear customized lesson plan, all lesson books, workbooks, sheet music, play along time, learning games, in home concert planning, and recitals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Designated music space in the living room with a Spinet piano, guitars, bluetooth powered speakers, karaoke equipment, microphones and comfortable seating.

· Country Singing · Online
When I signed up for this class, I didn't expect to gain everything that I did. The first lesson I was so nervous and just felt silly trying to sing notes to someone online that I had just met. I signed up for personal pleasure and confidence building, and it took a little bit for me to come out of my shell, but the difference that she has made in my life was way beyond what I signed up for. Everyone could see the difference in me! Previously, I would not get up to do karaoke unless someone dragged me up to do it, and even then I felt like I was going to have a panic attack. Now, I'm picking out songs to try in all kinds of genres, my voice has improved, and the confidence to get up and sing in front of others is soooo much better. Natalie became more than my teacher, she became my friend! She is hilarious, fun, very patient, and empathetic. She will take the time to help you with whatever you want to work on, whether it is music or in my case helping me write a letter to my Dad who had just passed for his memorial. So, If you are looking for someone that can teach you to grow in your craft or help you gain confidence and make it fun, Natalie is the best person for the job!

I have been teaching guitar for 10 years. I specialize in working with beginners, and love to work with children. Whatever style of music you enjoy, I want you to start learning songs right away and having fun. Then we can see how those songs are built, learning musiv theory to broaden your musical horizons.

About Kellen
I believe this is a great time to be a musician. I have come of age as a musician in a time when music making and the music industry have shifted dramatically. There are many positives in this shift, with new oppurtinites opening up for musicians. I also see these changes not being addressed in music education. There are many things I wish I would've been taught when I was younger that would have accelerated my growth, and I love using that knowledge to accelerate my student's growth. I teach tonal harmony (as you'd learn in music school), focus on groove and rhythm (which is commonly neglected in music school), and an awareness of new technology (which was ignored when I was in music school). I believe because no matter which direction you are coming from, you will come to this intersection making music in this era.

I had been playing guitar for a while, mostly learning songs and chord changes on my own. I wanted to take lessons to work on composing my own songs, and this is where Kellen really helped me. He had a lot of ideas and suggestions that were really helpful in trying to create a unique composing style. He's a trained musician, and it shows when he helps me with music theory and exposing me to lots of different styles of music.

The best part of learning an instrument is playing the music you love or wish to create. My lessons are designed to maximize this potential, combining music appreciation, song learning challenges, and creative development.

Students will be shown the fundamentals of guitar playing with special attention towards creating your own music and learning to play with others. Lessons will revolve around making progress by learning songs, not exercises. This way students remain challenged but with minimal burn out.

Learn rock, indie, metal, singer-songwriter, and more. Develop your ability to write songs, make melodies, rip through killer solos and licks, and become a well rounded musician.

About Aldo
Hello prospective students,

My name is Aldo. I am a student at California State University Long Beach and have been teaching guitar for a little over a year.

The goals for my students are pretty simple. First we identify some goals that you want to aim for. That could include improving technique, learning a certain song, or writing your own music! Whatever your guitar goals are, I am here to push, and encourage you to get them. You want to have killer solos? I can show you that. You want to learn some theory? I can show you that. You want to expand your arsenal of licks and chords? I can show you that. You want to write better songs or learn to play with others? I can show you that too.

Along the way I will expose students to new ideas, techniques, and new music to make you into a well-rounded musician. I keep detailed records
on progress made and achieved for each student so that each lesson has quantifiable results.

I have been playing guitar for well over 10 years and can say that it is not just a hobby but my passion. I have performed at venues such as The Viper Room as a solo artist and with bands. I hope to instill in my students not just quantifiable results in your guitar playing, but a better understanding of why you are drawn to music, what makes you want to play, and your creative abilities.

I look forward to our future lessons!
