Kimberly A.

Monrovia, CA

About Kimberly

I started playing music around the Kansas City area twenty five years ago. I graduated from The University of Southern California with a degree in studio/jazz guitar (cum laude). While at USC, I received a merit scholarship and an award for professional leadership and service within her department. I also graduated with honors from Musicians Institute (GIT), of Hollywood, CA. I have toured the U.S. and Canada playing venues such as The Portland Rose Festival, The Playboy Jazz Festival, The Santa Monica Twilight Concert Series, Irvine Lake Blues Festival,The Burnaby British Columbia Blues Festival and the Long Beach Blues Festival. The headliners at these events included Robben Ford, The Neville Brothers, and Johnny Winter. I have released two solo CD's that have received ...

Kimberly is an amazing musician and teacher. Her teaching techniques can make you the musician you've always wanted to be.

From beginner to seasoned player she can help you hone your skills. Let's say your not sure you want to learn to read music just yet. Her teaching methods can have you playing your instrument faster than you would dream possible. If on the other hand your interested in improving your your reading skills she can help you understand note placement time value neck geometry economy of motion.

Your welcome to do as many players do. Work on a song for hours on end picking out note after note after note till it feels like your going to die of old age. There you are ready to play at the family gathering the room get quiet you start playing singing " I'll never leave your pizza burning" from the back of the room comes your uncle with the runny eye runs up to you saying "hey Junior that's I'll never be your beast of burden I told you not to waste your time with that guitar"
Yeah we've all had something like this happens to us.

Have you ever listened to a song and thought was that a cat?Hawaiian noises? Is that even English? musically speaking Kimberly can unscramble an egg.She can tell you what that sound was how you can reproduce it or replace it with your own. She can answer all those musical questions you've wonder about. Is the hokey pokey really what it's all about? Why'd Yankee Doodle stick a feather in his hat and call it macaroni?

Whether your a serious musician or just starting out and want to have fun. You owe it to yourself book a lesson with her. Think of all your other projects the picture frame the Jewellery box Bird house. All that stuff is in the garage gathering dust right? High priced fire wood.

What you learn with Kimberly you keep forever. Money well spent

Guitar · In studio
I have been taking guitar lessons on my electric with Kim for about a year in her studio in the LA area. There are so many guitar instructors in LA, choosing one was very difficult. I relied heavily on reviews I read & a personal recommendation from a friend. Kim is exactly what I was looking for. She is laid back and down to earth (no rapping on the knuckles here!) but she conducts herself and her business just like you'd want her to - like a business. I sort of expect most musicians to be a bit fluid with their lives and their calendars. Not Kim! She tackles her work like a professional - on time, focused on you and flexible to meet your needs.

What I love about working with her is her flexibility. We started with basic guitar lessons - scales, chords, strum patterns, etc. It quickly morphed into her teaching me what I wanted to learn. A month in she asked me to make a list of my favorite songs. She wove the learning from there - blending just enough conventional guitar teaching into the lessons to keep it real - but focused on what I wanted - learning the songs I grew up with. I didn't want to learn to read music - so she stays on tabs. I am so happy and look forward to my lessons with her every week.

I would recommend Kim to anyone who wants to learn on their own terms.

Blues Guitar · In studio
I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level.

Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary.

Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute.

I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.

Lucy is a great teacher

I have been taking lessons with Lucy for about 6 months now and she has been an amazing teacher. She is very patient and professional. She has taught me quite a bit in regards to playing the violin. If I hadn't moved I would still be taking lessons with Lucy.

Balam has been my most influential teacher. He helped focus my practicing path to make every session have meaning. I was struggling with what music was to me. He helped show me that music isn't just something you do to get into college or impress the ladies; its a tool to help express your soul. Thank you Balam for all of your help and I will never forget.

Christopher I.

Arcadia, CA

About Christopher

My interest in music began when I began playing the trumpet at the age of 10. I always wanted to create my own music which led me to form a rock band. With a borderline electronic style, we were booked to play various nightclubs in Hollywood which got me hooked on house music. After starting to produce house music full time, I began my career as a touring producer/dj. I have worked with top management and booking agencies (APA, The Agency Group, Circle, etc). I have toured all over North America, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, and South Korea, performing at various electronic music festivals. Official remix credits range from artists like Cypress Hill, Rusko, Damian Marley, Steve Aoki, Zedd, Chuckie, Robbie Rivera, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and several others.

Ableton · In studio
Chris is nothing short of legendary in the music business. An Ableton Live aficionado, Chris has written hundreds of tracks and performed around the world as Cold Blank, and his experience shows! It takes a special kind of personality to succeed in the music industry, and one of the key facets is patience. Luckily, patience is what makes an amazing instructor as well.

Having sat in private 1-on-1 sessions with Chris, I can say that I learned more about the music industry and production process than I could ever have imagined! He is very deliberate and meticulous, and his perfectionism shows in his work. Having had Chris as a mentor and instructor has been an experience of a lifetime, and I cannot thank him enough for his time and effort. He is an absolute MUST if you're looking to learn to produce, hands down.

I had the pleasure of working with Chris as an intern with Burn The Fire Records while I attended Icon Collective Music School. He is very knowledgeable in both Ableton and Audio Engineering. As a student I had trouble mixing the tracks I would try to create. He helped me understand the basics of both mixing and mastering and my mixes improved dramatically over the course of the internship. I highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to learn Ableton or Audio Engineering. Chris is also very knowledgeable about the music industry and can help you get your music heard as he has many connections in the industry.
