Ryan H.

Moreno Valley, CA

About Ryan

I have been playing the piano for 7 years, but have been involved in the musical institution for much longer than that. I am currently pursuing my bachelors in classical piano performance from California State University of Dominguez Hills, with not much longer to go. I have also been shaping minds young and old in piano technique and music theory for the last three years. And, I believe I am an ideal teacher for anyone just starting out, to those who are trying to continue from where they left off.

*** Lesson Details ***
My first and foremost goal is to inspire a student to want to learn
and thrive in their instrument. If I can do this, my job along with theirs, becomes that much easier. I try and do this by heavily incorporating the music that they identify the most with, while strengthening their technique with a classical foundation. And, introduce a well rounded set of incentives for each of their accomplishments.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide sheet music and books, I expect the student to provide the instrument they would like to take lessons on.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Contemporary, Popular Song

Jessie M.

Pasadena, CA

About Jessie

Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to his or her individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.

As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I received my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of Music degre
e at the University of Redlands- which I attended on a music scholarship. I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women the Musical, Seussical the Musical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer in churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to stay active in the performance industry, because performing is a part of who I am and I could never live without it.

With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life then they WILL achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

Redlands, CA

About John

*** Specialties ***
Hi, there! My name is John M and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students build a solid foundation and understanding of music, as well as developing their skills to become well rounded musicians. I also help my students learn to enjoy practicing and performing. I went to the University of Redlands and earned a degree in Music Composition in 2014. I'm a fun and friendly person and my teaching style is constructed in a way that will appeal to visual, aural, and kinesthetic learners. I am very interested in Kod
aly's method of inner hearing and music literacy. I also use warm ups that will help my students develop proper playing techniques, and I teach my students how to play with expression, and emotion. I strive to teach at the best of my ability, work hard, and share my love for music with others. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

About Alex

Trained and educated (MM) in Russia and USA, over 20 years experience in teaching. Individual approach to the course development based on student personality, goals, skills.

Major instruments are piano, classical guitar, accordion.
Student must have own instrument and desire to learn!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe many of my students enjoy my class and are able to achieve a higher skill level because I make it a point to personally motivate them. I give them personalized goals to reach and/or tailored practice techniques.Based on response, I may offer words of encouragement or
tips such as how to ease sore muscles or an alternative way to execute a technique they are finding extra difficult.

I make it a point to not just teach music grammar and/or fundamentals of music, but to include the importance of the sound of music strategies to enhance their skill development.

Alex gives accordion class to my daughter and guitar classes to my other daughter. We are in Texas and we do it through Skype. Alex is cool with kids, motivates them, genuinely wants to understand what motivates them and what kind of music they like. For the first time in years, no more fighting about daily practice! My kids are happy wth the classes and motivated. Great teacher!

Alex is an excellent teacher. While he is a very accomplished musician he communicates in ways I can understand as a beginner. He quickly identifies areas I need to work on and both shows and tells me how to do that. He encourages questions as well as creativity that builds on the basics. He makes good use of the lesson time and is very encouraging. I can easily take what I learn in the lesson and practice it on my own. I look forward to my next lesson!

Best classical guitar teacher ever! Alex is a very easy-going, super friendly and straightforward teacher. He has an amazing ability to make complicated guitar techniques into very easy tasks. I surprised how much I learned just from his first lesson and how much I improved in a week. I would recommend any student regardless your age and level to study with him. You will get your money worth.

Vocal Training · In studio
Over the course of my vocal studies at the University of Redlands I had the privilege of working with two wonderful instructors: Professor Marco Schindelmann and Dr. Tosh. My junior year, however, I had a unique opportunity to take lessons with Brad, a grad student whom I sang next to in Chapel Singers. When my choral instructor Dr. Andrews first told me about the opportunity to study with Brad I was elated!

Working with Brad that year was the best decision I made. Not only did he take a particular interest in helping me grow, I really felt Brad took time to understand my voice and he really made sure to challenge in ways that I would be receptive to. Also, he is just a phenomenal singer himself with a beautiful voice, and I believe this is vital to picking a teacher.

At the time I was studying with Brad I was also reading The Free Voice: A Guide to Natural Singing by Cornelius L. Reid. If you are a vocal student and you have not read this, you are making a big mistake. But the reason I bring it up is because Brad's teaching really alined with what I was reading. Brad is living proof of the techniques I was reading about, and this was extremely beneficial to my personal growth.This book helped me understand not only my own voice, but the reasons Brad is such an amazing, intuitive teacher.

If you have an opportunity to work with Brad, take it!
I know you will not be disappointed!

Classical Voice · In studio
I have taken classical voice lessons with Bradley for the past year. Bradley is an incredibly talented vocalist, performer, and teacher. I have seen major improvements in my technique, breathing, and range. He has challenged me and made me work diligently to become a better vocalist. He is supportive and engaged and he has helped me set realistic and achievable goals. I always feel positive and encouraged after leaving a session. I highly recommend working with Brad!

15 Things Singers Know All Too Well
Singers, this is your life. 15. For some reason, your voice always sounds extra amazing in the shower. So work it! The shower is basically your own personal vocal booth.

Introduction to Proper Guitar Posture
As a beginner, proper guitar posture is one of the most important beginning steps before you learn about chords, picking, and strumming. Sadly, learning proper guitar posture is often an afterthought to learning to play. Although whether you choose to sit or stand has little effect on your tone or technique, proper guitar posture is important for many other reasons. Why Is Proper Posture Important? Proper guitar posture makes the work of your hands and fingers easier, conserving your energy.

We don’t have buttons that emit the same pitch every time they are pressed. Most of us don’t have perfect pitch, either. This makes learning to read music quite different for singers than for other musicians. Not only do singers deal with learning how
