About Kory

My name is Kory, and I'm currently enrolled as a Music Studies Major and Business Minor in college. I've been playing guitar for over 7 years, and played lead guitar/bass for my high school jazz band and the Cal Poly jazz combo. I also recently started a band, you can check out our page and music in the links below

https://searchfordelicious.bandcamp.com/

I have completed all levels of music theory at Cal Poly Pomona and have sung in the Concert Choir and Vocal Jazz Ensemble. I have taken recording classes an
d know how to use Pro Tools and Logic and have recently started to self produce my own music. In addition, I've worked with several students outside of take lessons, and have volunteered as a music teacher's assistant at Nightingale Middle School and John F. Kennedy High School.

Teaching others about music theory, singing, music production and guitar is a passion for me, and something that I'm not only confident in, but very patient with. I can guarantee, whether you're a beginner, or a very experienced player, you will see results

Athan G.

North Hills, CA

About Athan

Hello potential students, my name is Athan G. and I would love to be your new teacher! I have been teaching for over eight years, and love it as much as I love music itself. I have extensive experience in helping students reach their goals, becoming the best drummers and musicians that they can be. As a musician, I have been fortunate to study and play with some of L.A.'s top musicians, participating in the country's top student groups and receiving honors at many music festivals and competitions. The lessons I've learned from these great experiences I hope to pass on to you, the student, in o
rder to help you get the most out of our lessons and to turn you into the best musician that you can be. Whether beginner or advanced, and any genre from jazz to rock to hip hop, I feel I have the knowledge to take your drumming and music-making to the highest level (and of course, have a blast doing it!) I have a passion for teaching, and would love to have you as my student!

Mark has been an excellent teacher. Although I haven't played the accordion very long, my steady improvement, following his lessons, has been very enjoyable. I can feel my confidence building as well. I'm looking forward to continued progress with Mark.

Phenomenal experience. Mark is not only a consummate expert when it comes to Pro Tools, he is a highly skilled teacher, extremely professional, and a great guy. As someone with a PhD and a background in teaching and instructional design, I know something about effective teaching and Mark is truly a cut above--organized, patient, engaging, articulate, focused, helpful, illustrates his points with colorful anecdotes, offers useful ways of remembering the information... Mark, thanks for sharing your knowledge as well as your enthusiasm for ProTools.

Lenny V.

North Hollywood, CA

About Lenny

Hi, there! My name is Lenny and I’m excited to meet you and help you achieve your musical and drumming goals by making lessons truly about YOU!

Unlike many music teachers who quickly jump into tedious exercises; my first goal is to find out which bands YOU like, who YOUR drumming heroes are, and what YOUR drumming goals are.

Then we can have fun with exercises, learn cool techniques, or jam out in my awesome studio (it's a recording studio with TWO drumkits!!!!) based on your favorite music! My goal as the teacher is to have you playing as much as possible during the lessons so you have
fun and learn something important EVERY SINGLE LESSON. You should walk away from every lesson smiling and feeling confident!!!

All you have to do is show up and have fun, I take care of every else.

If you are curious as to playing ability or background, click on the videos below. Quick background is I’ve been a busy private teacher for about 12 years. Have taught literally thousands of drums, bass, guitar, piano, music recording software, and DJ lessons. I have seen it all, and can help you with anything.
