Jordan M.

La Mesa, CA

About Jordan

I am a professional singer and actor with over 10 years of performance experience and private vocal/acting coaching. I studied acting at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and have performed nationally in regional theater, for cruise lines, and several theaters in my current residence of San Diego such as the Lyric Opera San Diego, Old Globe, Lamb's Players Theater and Cygnet Theater. I have taught students from ages 7-adults, and my focus is always the dramatic and emotional aspects of the piece and how to use technique to release that emotion in a healthy and exciting way
.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is passionate and encouraging. I have taken lessons from many teachers and have found what is useful and what only confuses a student. As such, my approach to singing is very simplistic, and often what I will talk about in the first lesson will be discussed during every lesson. Lessons will usually be divided into 1/2 vocal mechanics and 1/2 dramatic interpretation.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music and acting texts, portable keyboard. Student need not provide anything.

*** Specialties ***
Broadway, voice/speech, classical theater, acting, stage combat

My mission is to provide a positive musical experience for all students. For some this includes rigorous preparation for an audition of some kind, for others it may be an introduction to music fundamentals to foster better listening skills and greater artistic appreciation. All students will be challenged to improve their listening, timing, and technique. All students will learn to play songs that they love.

Recommendations for best results: make a three-month commitment to weekly lessons, and 30 minutes of daily practice. This formula guarantees results. Bring your instrument, music books, and a binder with sheet protectors ☺

*Scheduling policy: to avoid being charged for a missed lesson - 24 hours notice to reschedule, within a week of the original time. One week notice to cancel or skip a lesson.

Good Luck!

Jordan is great. He fixed up my kiddo's school trombone, and taught him the basics of how to use it. We look forward to more lessons with him.

Aasim S.

San Diego, CA

Combination of learning songs, technique, scales, music theory, songwriting, and more. I always make sure that my students learn the styles they want to get into and the songs they love.

About Aasim

Zo is an ambitious musician from San Diego. Since he was a young child, he always had a fascination with music. After picking up his first guitar, he realized that he wanted to take his passion in music to the next level and absorb as much music as possible. He formed a rock band with two of his close friends and finally got the experience of what it was like to play in a band. This caused him to make the decision to study music while going to college since he truly wanted to do something he enjoyed. So, he enrolled in the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music of California State University Long Beac
h where he majored in a Jazz Performance Guitar degree. Through his experience here, he met many musicians to learn from and play with. While at school, he was receiving guitar lessons from two of the top guitarists in the Los Angeles area, Ron Eschete and Michael Higgins. Along with receiving lessons, he was also giving private lessons to many students while studying at CSULB. While developing his expertise in Jazz, he decided to go back to his roots and put together a blues ensemble with some of his colleagues in the music department. His band is currently gigging regularly under the name “Zo's Crooked Blues Band”. As Zo strives to excel in his music career, he also hopes to help as many students as he can along the way to get them in the same level of focus and dedication that he has to music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether your looking to seriously master your instrument or just have some fun, I can help you along the way! Whether you want to learn some tunes, go over some music theory, or improvise your own music, we will work together to get you to that stage. My focus is to aim you towards being a better musician while developing technical ability on your instrument. I always make sure my students are having fun while they are learning and applying the information to the music they love to learn.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the living room, music stand

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide teaching materials, obviously. I can also bring a music stand, or an extra guitar to my lessons if the student doesn't have one. I will also be making regular print-outs on my own to hand out to my student.

*** Specialties ***
I received my degree in Jazz Performance with the Guitar as my main instrument. My favorite styles are jazz, blues, rock, and pop. I could teach Bass Guitar, Piano, and Ukulele till about an intermediate level. I took four semesters of Piano classes at CSULB so I learned how to play all scales and arpeggios two hands and two octaves.However, I'd like to focus mainly on teaching the guitar to all levels, especially to those who are focused and dedicated to the instrument.

For whatever reason, I have a good knack for theory and ear training as well, so I could always teach Music Theory as well. I'd be a great Jazz Theory teacher.

Rebecca is an amazing teacher and exudes energy and passion when teaching our daughter. She is also very patient and understanding of little children's attitude and behavior which I know can be very challenging at times. Our daughter has been learning from Rebecca for the past two years and is not only able to play but explain the music to myself and others (who, I should say, do not have any musical ability). Our daughter has a new found passion for music because of her lessons and I can't thank Rebecca enough for her help and dedication to our daughters learning.

Music Criticism: How To Handle a Critical Audience
Years ago, I heard my first band would be featured in the local paper and I was so excited to read the article. I hurried home to read it and found that the short blurb was far from complimentary.

However, I have learned how to handle criticism and continued to make music that makes me happy. In the time since then, I have been lucky enough to receive both criticism and positive revie
