Hey there, everyone! My name is Milton and I teach vocal, guitar, piano, and musical theatre lessons in the Inland Empire area. I help those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young tap into their own soul through music so that they may help others find theirs as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it! As a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a double major in Music History & Ethnomusicology and African-American & African Studies; a former co-host of the popular hip-hop radio show ATF Radio: All Things Fresh on KDVS 90.3 FM; a former Music Director of The Afterglow of UC Davis; and a recent graduate of American University with a Master's of Education in Business Education, I have come in contact and learned from a vast amount of different musicians and educators. A classically-trained bass-baritone with roots in R&B, Soul, Rock, Pop, and Jazz, I have aspirations to help each and every student realize their full musical potential. If you're looking for a teacher who will motivate and inspire you not only to learn your instrument of choice, but also how to perform it (whether on the big stage or in your living room for the family) and record it as well, I'm the perfect teacher for you. Learning to sing, play, and act beautifully doesn't have to be difficult -- we'll work on finding your voice or your style, all while having fun along the way! I teach in-studio, in-home, and online lessons, so we can be flexible with the lesson type and schedule! This is a perfect chance for you or your child who can't stop singing around the house or has dreams of shredding on the guitar or twinkling on the ivories to learn the fundamentals of music, start something new that keeps them or you focused, and have fun while doing it! Feel free to contact me at show contact info for any questions and check out my student reviews and qualifications. I look forward to meeting you and accompanying you or your child on your musical journey!!

Milton is a great piano instructor who really emphasizes the basics and enjoyment. He was very patient with me as an older student and always took the time to answer any questions that may have gone beyond the reserved time. He is very knowledgeable regarding all things music and really tailors the lessons towards what you enjoy and the appropriate level. Over the past two years, I learned to play a large variety of genres so you will not get bored. He was very professional but still relatable and I very much enjoyed every lesson I had. I would highly recommend students of any age and skill level to take a chance with Milton!
Milton is an excellent instructor! He is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient. The guitar curriculum he uses is very good. I have prior musical knowledge in piano, and Milton knows when I need to be challenged/need extra work and when I can breeze through exercises on my new instrument. Lessons are really fun and I always look forward to them. Highly recommended!
