Dansby S.

Victorville, CA

About Dansby

I am a graduate of Cal Poly Ponoma University with a BA degree in voice. I have 20+ year experience teaching voice and piano. Building people is my passion and commitment. My students learn by doing and I love the growth each student takes from their lessons as well as their performances. I am a working artist in the music field as a vocalist, conductor, and motivating speaker.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students in a 30min, 45min, or 60min lesson will experience technique which will be translated to songs that will give students a great opportunity to put the technique they learn and practice
d to good use. In 3 to 6 months of lessons students will begin to see themselves growing and getting more control of their instrument, more confident, and wanting to start performing what they are learning.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The teacher's home studio is in a room with a piano and musical books. The room is large with a grand piano and keyboard.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students need to provide piano though I am willing to work with students in getting equipment.

*** Specialties ***
In voice I have used the Alexander tech.

Jason has been playing guitar for over 15 years and teaching music since 1996. Although trained in standard teaching methods, he has developed his own method of teaching to positively enhance the student€™s strength, dexterity, ear-training, memorization and techniques. His goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician.

This year Jason was also the M
usic Director at the National Guitar Workshop Day Jams Rock Music Day Camp where students ages 7-15 came out to form bands, record original material and master their craft. He also taught beginning to advanced guitar/ vocals/ performance and songwriting as hosted a recording clinic at the end of each day.

Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason has been transcribing for guitar and bass since the age of 18 and since then has become a master of the craft including both 5 line staff and tablature, hand-crafted exercises and deconstructions to better enhance the students learning. Artists and genres that Jason has experience with range from Classic Rock, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Guns N' Roses, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Robert Johnson, Pierce the Veil, Paramore, All Time Low, Demi Lava to, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Pantera, Avenged Sevenfold, The White Stripes, Green Day, Old Crow Medicine Show, Taylor Swift, Mumford and Sons, Bruno Mars, Rob Zombie, John 5, Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine, Van Morrison, the Beatles, AC/DC, ZZ-Top, Bullet For My Valentine, All That Remains, Ozzy, Black Label Society, Sublime, Aerosmith, At the Drive In, Type O Negative, the Black Keys, the Pixies, the Toadies, Black Sabbath, Jason Mraz, Lady GaGa, John Mayer and Journey.

Jason attended the University of Alaska, Anchorage where his degree is in Music and Business. He is constantly continuing his education with music theory courses as well as private guitar instruction. He attends guitar workshops and seminars by artists such as John5 and Kerry King who are known as some of the worlds finest guitar players. He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

Another nice feature that you might enjoy from one on one sessions with Jason is learning the ability to craft and record your own songs using state of the art technology that caters to your own unique personality. There are no limits!

Jason teaches all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced as well as artists that are signed to labels.

Local news outlet Fox 5 did a segment with one of his students who overcame issues with ADD and depression as a result of taking guitar lessons.

His students advance quickly, some have released albums, been in Guitar World Magazine as well as its online companion and won awards for their music websites.

Jason has been working with my almost 12 year old for several months now. We started with the ukulele and then moved on to the guitar a few months later. Jason is always very open to our suggestions and feedback on our son's progress and makes any adjustments necessary to keep him engaged. Additionally, Jason is always on time and if we need to make scheduling changes he does his best to work with us to accommodate.

If you are thinking of trying the ukulele or guitar, then connect with Jason. I think that no matter your skill level he will be able to keep you engaged, excited and challenged.

Aaron P.

Apple Valley, CA

About Aaron

As a 15-year-old teen I was headed nowhere. I had no interests and was failing my freshman year of high school. Then I started playing the guitar and fell in love with music. As I studied under my dad, who was a professional musician, my mind started to open up, my attention span grew. My problem solving skills and comprehension improved to such a degree that my grades went up to the honor level. Since I ended up graduating with a 4.0, I preach and stress the importance of learning a musical instrument.
I got into teaching only 4 years after I first picked up the guitar and immediately found
that it was what I wanted to do for a living. Oh sure! Playing in bands is fun but I enjoy seeing my students grow in and with music most of all. Having over 20 years’ experience as a professional musician and teacher. I have been teaching exclusively in the High Desert area for the last 16 years. I started at a music store in Apple Valley called Hi Note Music then taught at Tom's for 14 years. Now I teach at Rollover Beethoven's Music store in Hesperia and out of my studio in Apple Valley.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach almost any style of music including Rock, Jazz, Blues, Classical, Country and R&B. I stress the fundamentals: technique, reading, theory, ear training but in addition, I will give you all the licks and tricks you want. The important thing is to develop good habits because bad habits take a long time to overcome. I will provide you with the tools to play anything your heart desires and the ability to teach yourself.

*** Studio Equipment ***
separate studio w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Have portable sound system and lap top computer. All the student needs are their instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I have written methods that I have found to work very well in teaching the student all aspects of music and how to apply it towards the instrument. My methods include the essentials in reading, finger exercises, theory, and ear training. I like to prepare my students for any and all genres. The key is to teach the student how to teach themselves.

George E.

Adelanto, CA

About George

Very experienced musician with a strong desire
to share my passion for music.

I started playing drums at 11 years old and have continued ever since.

During high school and college I performed with both school and independent drumline ensembles.

After which, I enrolled at the Musician's Institute of Technology in Hollywood, CA. During my time at MI, I learned many different styles of rythyms and musical genres. After one year of a very intensive cirriculum, I graduated with a Certificate of Percussion performance.

I've recorded albums for several independent artists. I have als
o peformed for private corporations such as Volkswaggen.

I'm currently performing with a blues band and my home Church.

I would love to share my experiences and pass on my knowledge to any and everyone. You're never too old and it's never too late.

Grab a pair of sticks and let's get drumming!

All the best!
