Singing
A wonderful experience

I took vocal lessons from David. I had taken some singing lessons when I was younger, but needed to brush up. I sing in a band, and David helped my song performance. I will be taking more lessons in the future.

He's amazing!

Both my daughters are learning guitar from David and they love it. I am impressed with their improvement and David even got them to "jam" together. When I ask them what they want to be when they grow up, they say they are going to be rockstars. I would gladly refer David to anyone searching for an enthusiastic and wonderful instructor.

A great first experience ...

John has been outstanding. He's very patient yet he keeps the train rolling. My son is a beginner but he has progressed very well and enjoys his guitar sessions with John. It has been a very positive experience. John is a great teacher.

Kenneth K.

Stockton, CA

I teach classical guitar. This means I teach how to read music and along with teaching chords. I believe this route is healthier for my students (especially the younger ones) and will not limit them in the long run. Teaching to read music is nothing new to me. I teach students on other instruments to read music and I apply the same techniques to the guitar.

About Kenneth

My philosophy of teaching has many facets: 1.) The students physical health must be taken into consideration when playing an instrument. 2.) Only through hard work and practice can a student make lasting improvements. 3.) Repetition is the key to long-lasting learning. 4.) A teacher needs to be a cheerleader and a task-master at the same time. 5.) I use the Suzuki Method in as many ways as possible along with reading exercises for most ages. *** Lesson Details *** I do have high expectations of my students, but I am considerate about schedules and family conflicts. *** Studio Equipment *** Office/classroom, seating for parents, piano - it is his so reservations won't be an issue *** Specialties *** I am currently training with a violin/viola master teacher who ...

Bogdan B.

Citrus Heights, CA

About Bogdan

I am a classically trained guitarist with more than 30 years of experience playing the guitar. My musical interests also include jazz, pop and bossa nova. I have played in several local bands and currently am a member of a jazz quartet. *** Lesson Details *** I am generally laid back in my teaching style as I believe music should be a source of personal fulfillment and happiness. However, I do ask my students to practice diligently. I use a standard curriculum, including Hal Leonard for beginners and right hand studies by Giuliani for more advanced players. *** Travel Equipment *** I can provide a small practice amplifier for electric instruments during lessons, as well as sheet music for some hard-to-find pieces of classical guitar. I prefer students to have their own instrument and ...
