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 ...

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.

2nd Lesson

Alex is wonderful…he has such a feeling for music and being sure his pupils learn properly…one important thing that impressed me…he asked me a very good question, "do you want to learn easily or do you want to struggle learning?"…I have long nails and he explained when hitting the keys, it is very difficult to hold the wrist and hit the key properly….so I have filed my nails down…LOL….because I want to learn piano easily and most importantly learn the proper etiquette when playing.. He is a great teacher..and he teaches with passion...

Love of Music

Had my first lesson with Alex and it was great. He started out showing me what the different symbols mean and the notes. I am so glad he is teaching me how to read music, its very important. Its all very basic now but feel with knowledge of the basics it will help me understand future lessons easily…..looking forward to my next lesson…..in the meantime, drawing the Cleff, Notes and Staffs to be sure I understand, per his instructions…Love it!

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 mistakes 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

Rock J. Rialto, CA

From beginning to advanced, a student will learn how to manage their time for daily practice, and how to practice effectively and efficiently. All styles of music are taught; the sky is the limit. Sight reading, practice, performance, and technique are key foci of my teaching style.

About Rock

I'm a piano player with over a decade of experience, and have been teaching lessons for around eight years or so. I graduated with honors from California State University, San Bernardino, in 2008, with degrees in both Music Education and Music Composition.I have an affinity for Central and Eastern European Piano music and I currently play two Sundays a month at Spirit of Hope Church in San Bernardino. My teaching style runs the gamut of the piano repertoire -- from classical to broadway to jazz to the commercial music arena -- and my teaching revolves around the importance of notation and the printed page.I was originally a guitar player and have taught guitar to students as well, again, placing great emphasis on notated music, as it's far easier to move from the printed page to ...

Victoria is really nice and definitely patient. She made it comfortable for me from the first meeting. It takes a good teacher to make the fundamental part of learning any instrument exciting which is exactly what Victoria does. Her tutoring makes me hopeful for my musical future.

We are very blessed!

We have been very pleased with our flute teacher. I have had the privilege of Victoria's instruction for 3.5 years. Victoria is fun, patient and energetic. She is reliable and flexible at the same time, which we appreciate. She works on hard passages diligently with me until I am confidant. We consider it a huge plus that she comes to our home for lessons. We are very blessed to have such a wonderful teacher.

vincent O. Moreno Valley, CA

Much of my lessons will focus on building ear training, and improvisation. I will also teach some music theory such as chords, scales, harmony. Building a solid foundation in music theory will help assist the piano. It will become understandable and will connect all the dots. I will teach out of books I have acquired and my own person exercises/training.
