Omar G.

Riverside, CA

I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

About OMAR

Knowing that you are looking for a instructor to teach you music puts a smile on my face. You see, music has been a part of my life since the age of 3. Some of my first memories are of me accompanying my father at home with his rehearsals or just singing together to have fun as a family. I believe music is a gift that unites people together bringing out our deepest emotions that words cannot express. At the age of 5 I received an organ and from that point on I embarked on a long life journey to indulge and learn more about music. In elementary, junior high and high school I was involved in an
y subject dealing with music. I joined school choirs, orchestras, bands, marching bands, jazz bands, musicals you name it. While enjoying all school music activities I was selected to join in honor county and state orchestras and choirs. In junior high and high school I was selected to play for the Junior Pacific Symphony Orchestra, received scholarships to music summer camps, and was selected musician of the year. In college my quest continued with the Orange Coast College Orchestra, Praise Symphony Orchestra, Vanguard University Orchestra as well as guitar ensembles and college choir groups. I've also taken private lessons from Dr. Art David (Julliard graduate) in stand up bass as well as David Black (Pacific Symphony Orchestra) and classical guitar with Richard Glenn and David Murray. I've been teaching now for 15 years in guitar, classical guitar, bass guitar, stand up bass,cello, piano and voice ranging from 5 yr old to 65 yr old. My styles of music range from classical, jazz, rock, blues and contemporary. At this point I'm enjoying playing and singing in my church choir and worship team as well as teaching my two kids the joys of music. I hope you truly enjoy the joy of learning music whether it be through me or another teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I require all students to set time aside to practice. For without it, it is only wasting your time, your money and my time. I don't expect a total dedication to it but I do want to see some effort put into it. A little practice can go a long way and the more you do it, the faster you will progress and the more you will enjoy it. We will first start off with what you want out of music and the level you are at and go from there. Student can bring their own music either thru tabs, music sheet or just by ear but one thing I do expect is a student to learn how to read music notation. We will go thru the regular warm up exercises, material practiced during the week and any new music for the following week. Correct techniques in how to hold your instrument or voice procedures will be addressed. Music theory will also be part of the lesson as well as ear training. At the end of either 3 to 6 months you will have learned the basics of music and will be playing songs for you or someone else to enjoy. I will make it a total relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere but some dedication has to put on the students' part.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated music room, guitar both classical and electric, piano, cello, upright bass and electric bass guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own instrument. I can also provide music stand, small amplifier if needed and music material for the first few lesson until student provides for him/her self. Student must have own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
My way of teaching would have to be that they must learn how to read music while learning how to play an instrument.

Vincent O.

Students can expect to learn all the chords, scales, and some music theory behind what creates a song. Eventually leading into being able to play a song. Students can expect to be given homework to practice and receive new material at the end of every session.

Our 3 1/2 year old grandson loves drumming and music videos. We got him a junior set for Xmas, along with lessons. His instructor, Vincent set up the drums for us. The first lesson was yesterday. Vincent adjusted everything to fit our grandson and taught him how to hold the sticks properly. So far, so good. Vincent is patient and encouraging.

Kenji R.

Quail Valley, CA

As a student of mine, you can count on having a good time, learning the music you want to play, spending our lesson time playing rather than listening to me lecture, and becoming a better musician. Whether I'm teaching a beginner or a more advanced player, focus is on the music. I want to help beginner players of any age, start playing the guitar as quickly as possible.

About Kenji

Kenji has been teaching private lessons since 2005 and is currently available to teach lessons at your home, at his music studio, and online. Kenji has helped students of all ages to learn to play their favorite music, in a variety of genres, and at a all skill levels.

Kenji received his training at Chaeffey College where he studied classical guitar. As an expert performer and front man of several bands, Kenji offers a unique perspective for his students, helping new students achieve their goals, and helping intermediate musicians perfect their craft. Kenji's teaching style is relaxed & com
fortable.

While learning to read music is always an option, Kenji shys away from traditional guitar instruction by focusing on learning to play songs the student loves, while occasionally sprinkling in theory, to help the student learn the how and the why of music.

If you're looking to learn as quickly as possible, Kenji is the answer.

I have little to no experience with guitar, but Ralph makes it very easy to get started and I began learning technique and chords right away. He clearly has a passion for music, but also experience in teaching others to play. He's not only compassionate and understanding for the difficulties you face as a beginner, but is also ready to challenge you and keep you motivated when learning gets frustrating. You'll progress quickly with him as your teacher.
