He also taught beginning to advanced guitar/ vocals/ performance and songwriting as hosted a recording clinic at the end of each day.

Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason has been transcribing for guitar and bass since the age of 18 and since then has become a master of the craft including both 5 line staff and tablature, hand-crafted exercises and deconstructions to better enhance the students learning.

He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

I've taken several lessons with Jason and highly recommend him! He is very patient, easy going, and goes at the student's pace. He's a great guitar player and he will work with you to achieve your goal. I leave each lesson learning a few new songs.

Jason is a great teacher, very knowledgeable and patient. I don't have any musical background whatsoever, but he quickly got me started learning to play banjo and answered all my questions. I highly recommend this teacher.

We were new to the whole online, private lesson world and only tried as a test for our 10 yr-old son. He has now been working with Jason for several months now and shows no signs of stopping. Our son is progressing, has gained confidence and still seems to have fun. Jason is on time and if you cannot make a lesson he is flexible in rescheduling if given some notice. Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention how much Jason packs into his lessons without overwhelming the student. We highly recommend him!

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.

Mr. Garcia was extreamely knowledgable in his approach to technique. A wonderful quatlity that stood out about Mr. Garcia inside and outside of the studio is his humility, which creates a safe, fun and enjoyable learning environment. He is directive yet encouraging when it comes to striving towards the standards of excellence he belives his students are capable of achieving.

Ken P.

Anaheim, CA

Learn basic flamenco strumming techniques and styles.

About Ken

I've been playing music my whole life, but it was as a high school student when I was asked to teach the school's guitar class that I became a teacher. Since that time I've gone on to earn several awards, played in many different types of projects, and earned a Master's degree. You might have heard my music before too if you've ever listened to a podcast, TV commercials, Indy films, or played any video games. My most successful student thus far however, would have to be Jacob Tilley from the rock band Young the Giant.

Not everybody wants to be a rock star though, and there are many aspec
ts to the world of music. During the course of my musical adventure I've played with orchestras, been in rock, bluegrass, reggae, pop and blues bands, classical ensembles and more. I have also had the opportunity to play for celebrities and diplomats. Basically I've done a little of everything and I believe that it is this diversity of experiences that makes me a better teacher. Having worked in so many settings gives me a broad understanding that I use to help you reach whatever goals you might have.

I have also become adept at writing, recording and producing music, studying under Frank Wright of the legendary rock band Chicago. If you have an interest in creating and/or recording music I can definitely help you get there! Check out my chill/downtempo instrumental album 'Night Music'.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach you about playing several different instruments, how to write, how to record your own music, and how to get your music career off the ground! As a youth, I was largely self-taught so my inspiration was always to have fun. I never had to deal with the 'homework' style of practicing so I've naturally incorporated that approach to my lessons. My goal is to keep you (the student) inspired and having fun. When that happens you will become good at your instrument and feel as though you 'played' your way to success! As your teacher I will also provide almost all of the materials for free and show you great free apps to help you along with your learning and keep costs to a minimum! I know we will have fun together while you learn and I look forward to meeting you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars, piano/keyboard, drums, bass, banjo, mandolin, ukulele and a ProTools recording studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide the learning materials but I expect the student to have their own instrument, be that a guitar, drum set, etc.

*** Specialties ***
Commercial music is definitely my specialty, but I am also capable of doing various styles such as classical, bluegrass, traditional/folk. Just focus on what you want to learn and I can teach it to you.

William B.

Riverside, CA

Take flamenco guitar lessons with me and you will develop techniques such as rasgueado, apoyando, and golpe. You will learn about how flamenco music is structured and learn some flamenco repertoire.

About William

I am a guitarist, composer and teacher specializing in classical guitar and Latin American music. I have loved music for all of my life and my primary expression of that love is playing guitar. I currently teach private guitar lessons, lecture at San Bernardino Valley College and work as a freelance performer in the Inland Empire and greater Los Angeles area.

I began my study of music at the age of thirteen when I taught myself how to play folk, rock and blues guitar. Though, to be honest, I didn't just teach myself. I had many friends who played guitar who would show me songs or correct mi
stakes in the songs I had learned from the internet. I remember thinking that music had a special ability to bring people together, and I became determined to understand what exactly it was that gave music that power. I began my formal study of music at Foothill College in Los Altos, California where I studied guitar, music appreciation and music theory. In 2002 I transferred to the University of California at Santa Cruz to pursue a Bachelors of Arts in Music.

I majored in classical guitar at the UC Santa Cruz, but I also pursued a variety of other musical interests including Balinese Gamelan, jazz improvisation and North Indian classical music. It was fascinating to learn how different cultures thought of music and how participating in music is so often linked with the formation of community. I also learned a lot about the history of Western music. I studied the lute and performed the works of Scarlatti, Bach and Handel with the UC Santa Cruz Early Music Consort. I also was a member of the UC Santa Cruz Contemporary Music Ensemble, a group which performed experimental contemporary music. I loved performing with all the different ensembles and becoming familiar with music from different times in history and different places in the world. In 2004, during my last year of college, I began working as a freelance guitar instructor in Santa Cruz.

In April of 2005 I graduated from UC Santa Cruz and moved to Los Angeles where I worked as a freelance performer and guitar teacher. I studied guitar with Dr. Emre Sabuncuoglu at the Los Angeles Guitar Academy and eventually became an associate instructor there. At that time, I was also teaching guitar, piano and songwriting at a studio called All Access Musician located in the San Fernando Valley.

In Fall of 2007 I began working towards my Masters of Music in Composition at the University of California at Riverside. While at Riverside, I studied and performed the music of the Peruvian Andes, early lute music and Brazilian choro. I had always loved Latin American music, but this was the first time I had been regularly performing it with large ensembles. The rhythm, the dance and the singing of Andean music captivated me in a way I never thought it could. I also began to recognize the rhythmic complexity of all Brazilian music at this time and became very interested in choro, samba and bossa nova.

During my time at UC Riverside I was awarded three fellowships from the Gluck Fellows Program, which allowed me to give free public concerts and lectures in schools, libraries and assisted living homes. It gave me great joy to see children in the community fascinated with the music I performed for them and actually being interested in hearing about 16th century Germany or the Peruvian Andes. After two wonderful and painstaking years, I received my Masters of Music in December of 2009.

Currently I work as a freelance classical guitarist for weddings, receptions and festivals. My classical guitar repertoire includes the works of J.S. Bach, Dionisio Aguado, Isaac Albéniz and Agustín Barrios Mangoré. I am a founding member of Kusisqa: The Riverside Andean Music Ensemble. We performed for hundreds of people at the San Bernardino Latin Music Festival. I also collaborate with many local musicians performing nueva cancion, jazz, classical music and original compositions.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that playing an instrument should be a source of joy in one's life. Playing music is one of the most enriching experiences life has to offer. Every single person on this Earth has the inherent skills necessary to play music, but learning how to express yourself with an instrument is no simple task. It requires a great deal of discipline, focus and intent to realize the music that you want to play. But fear not: YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Too often people think of music as something genetic, that you are either predisposed to be a good musician or you aren't. I know from personal experience that this is simply not true. All great musicians became great because they have the discipline, focus and intent to realize the music they want to play. My lessons are designed to give you the skills necessary to make the music YOU want to.

I recognize that every musician is an individual and I want to help you express your individuality through music. Everyone has their own style and tastes, especially when it comes to the music they like and want to make. Whether you're a little bit country or a little bit rock-and-roll (or classical, or emo, or metal, or grunge...) I can help you make the music you want to. I will help you establish your musical goals and set you on a path towards achieving them.

You also must realize that in order to achieve your musical goals, there are some important fundamentals you need to know. For instance, it is vital that a musician be able to physically manipulate their instrument efficiently and effortlessly. Other skills like knowing how to tune and care for your instrument, how to count rhythms and how to practice music are absolutely crucial for you to be successful in reaching your personal musical goals. My first goal as your teacher is to help you master these fundamentals so you have the skills to learn the music YOU want to.

I have taught literally hundreds of students of all ages over the past six years and my students have a very high success rate. Most of my students play in a recital within the first three months of lessons. All of my students who have been studying with me for more than six months have learned dozens of songs and many have begun performing at open mics, concerts and festivals.

Within the first month of lessons you will be able to play simple songs like Skip to My Lou, Amazing Grace or You Are My Sunshine. You will learn to read music notation, which will give you the ability to look-up and learn songs from the internet. By the second month of lessons you will have mastered the basics and progress to more advanced songs! By the third month you will have solid technique, strong music reading skills and you will start choose the songs you want to learn!

My advanced students, usually those who have been studying with me for six months or more, will choose songs they would like to work on. At this stage I often begin to cover special topics with my students depending on their particular musical interests. Some examples of special topics I've worked on with my students are music theory, ear training, harmony singing, composition, songwriting and preparation for the collegiate study of music.

Yorba Linda, CA

About David

I graduated Fullerton College with an AA in Music and Liberal Arts. Since 2009, I have been playing shows across the U.S. in Clubs, Venues, Casinos and Festivals with several groups. Some of the styles I can play are:  Rock, Blues, Country, Jazz, Classical, Reggae, Folk, Funk, Latin and R&B. Recently, I published a book through Hal Leonard for the Solo Guitar. I have been teaching for 8 years and have helped many students grow, musically, from ages 5-70. Whatever it is in music you wish to learn, I can help you along your way, no matter what difficulty or challenge you are facing.

I am usually very lenient toward the student. It is up to the student and the parent to schedule in their practicing for the week. I like to work with the student and work along with what they would like to learn (a song, scales, theory, chords, etc..). I also like to give the student some materials they wouldn't practice on their own to encourage more possibilities in their playing. This way, they can learn what they want, but are influenced in opening their horizons. The curriculum depends on the level of experience in the students playing. A beginner will get a beginning book and we will work on it until they are comfortable in reading, understanding rhythms and chords. When a student is intermediate, I like to work on their interests as well as detailing their strengths and challenging their weaknesses. After 3 to 6 months of lessons, with a good amount of practice, you can expect to see a great change in your playing. It also depends on your practice habits. I give enough material in a lesson to work on throughout the week. I have had students that practice minimally and still sound better after 3-6 months, but are doing the bare minimum. I have also had students that sound like they've been playing for 2+ years after such a short amount of time. Again, it depends on your motivation toward practicing when you are on your own time during the week. Of course I am here to help you motivate yourself. Lessons should be looked upon as a fun learning experience and not as a hard duty.

*** Travel Equipment ***
My instrument(s) and reference guides. They need their own instruments and paper/notebook.

*** Specialties ***
I teach everyone different, because everyone has a different personality. I can teach Jazz, Classical, Folk, Blues, Bluegrass, Latin, Rock (sub genres included), Funk, Reggae and R&B.
