Matthew G.

Hesperia, CA

Do you have a passion for the drums? Perhaps you have an energetic young child that needs to let his energy out! Then the drums may be for you! In this lesson of drums, we will learn the basics of a drum set, we will learn how to play correctly, you will also learn how to play your favorite song on the drums!

About Matthew

There are many things in life one can learn or accomplish! One of the most fulfilling is to learn & understand music! I have such a passion for anything music related! Music has always been a huge part of my life, since the day I picked up the sticks to play the drums when I was 13, until today, continuing to advance as far as possible on the piano! I enjoy playing multiple instruments, and I have great joy & much patience in sharing this love for music with others! My name is Matthew & I have been playing music since the age of 13. I have taught at "The Fundamental Sounds of Music School" in
Fontana CA at my local church in Fontana CA for 2 years. I got accepted into the Art Institute of San Francisco CA for my Associates Degree in "Audio Production," which I recently graduated. I have played in numerous groups & have written many songs. I have also sang in a few choirs and have put together many groups and voices in the past. I am excited to meet you and/or your child as a student! My goal is see all of my students excel and go far, above and beyond me, in this beautiful world of music! There is no limit to how far you can go! "Where words fail, music speaks." -Author unknown

*** Lesson Details ***
The journey we will take to accomplish your musical goals is based on you! The student:] We will find out, what you want to learn, "whats" your passion, and from there, figure out the kind of lessons that will best suit and cater to your style! :] I am unique as is every teacher in there style of teaching, I like to see students have the oppurtunity to *not* be limited in music, but to be able to teach him or her self, by learning to play by ear! and if the student wants to learn to read music as well, I can teach that as well! I am a big fan of "Alfred" material in the world of music, I use nothing else for the most part if I'm teaching music and using material, depending on the student, one can easily learn to play an instrument, such as a guitar in as fast as 10 lessons! Even sooner depending on how much practice time is put in during the students own time:] Typically though there are about 13 lessons to complete as a beginner, of the instrument you plan to learn, or voice, which is also an instrument! Its a truly exciting journey, & I would be honored to have a opportunity to go along this journey with you:]

*** Studio Equipment ***
I povide teaching material & lessons, I expect my student to provide there own instrument & and any accessories needed such as a metronome or capo:]

*** Travel Equipment ***
In my home studio, big living room area, A.C, most times my family is over but no interruptions in the music room:] Instruments. Great acoustics. Seating for parents. And my other 2 studios would be churches, one smaller and one very large:] I truly enjoy working one on one, of course with parents as well as students if they are young children, giving them 110% focus & attention! :]

*** Specialties ***
Contemporary, Gospel, Classical, Alternative, Rock, Rock & Roll, Spanish :]

Matthew was a great teacher…however found he was unable to teach in his home or studio, needed to rearrange the classes to my location, which was not convenient for me

Paul does a great job of balancing the theoretical and applied. He focuses on developing strong fundamentals and good habits but also delves into songs that apply new skills learned along the way at the appropriate pace. As a beginner, Paul has helped me get off to a good start where I'm learning a lot but also having a lot of fun.

A big plus is that he's got a real down-to-earth personality that makes the lessons even more enjoyable and really interesting to talk to about all things drums and otherwise.

My son has taken lessons with Paul for over 5 years. Not only is Paul an accomplished musician, he's a great teacher. His teaching style is positive and supportive. He has modified my son's lessons through the years, as his goals and needs have changed. Paul has always been professional, reliable and enthusiastic. He genuinely seems to enjoy what he does, and as a bonus, Paul is also a really nice guy, who has had a positive influence on my teenage son's life.

Shane is very prompt and down to earth. He really made me feel like my time was valued and made sure my questions/ concerns were addressed prior to the end of our lesson. He made me feel at ease during the lesson and not flustered for any mistakes... he even showed me how to achieve similar notes with different finger positions for ease and comfort.
