About Ray

Hello! My name is Ray - I'm 26 years old, born in Queens NY. I studied classical music for many years as a youngster at Aaron Copeland School of Music college preparatory program. Here I was also introduced to Jazz, and around the same time began experimenting with synthesizers. I went on to study Electronic Production & Design at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and quickly became a very sought after studio musician and performer. I've been successfully teaching many instruments and proficiency levels for over 12 years now. I can say with pride that it is my passion, and I anticipate teaching being a very important part of the rest of my life. I enjoy reading science, math, and philosophy, and in addition to teaching am currently working as a pop music producer. *** ...

My son and daughter both take from Ray and they love him!!! My daughter started with him after she had had 2 other teachers and she improved immediately. She loves going to Ray because he teaches her to play the songs that she likes. Now she plays so many songs for memory!! My son loves going to piano and is always excited to see Ray.

When I started taking lessons from Ray I was playing the electric guitar, although I had a classical guitar in my house I did not play it that often. I took my classical guitar once to class and then I started to learn how to play the classical guitar. I went from playing basic peaces of music to playing Minuet in G in a short time. From playing electric guitar about 3 or 4 years to playing classical music in about 1.5 to 2 years. Ray has helped me to increase my knowledge of music.

It was my first time ever having a guitar instructor and I wasn't too sure how it worked, or what to expect from it. Once I met Nanette I instantly got comfortable. She is insanely talented, and an amazing teacher. Also, Nanette is a really chill person to be around and learn from. When your in a session with her you totally feel like your just jamming and having fun. I look forward to seeing her every week! She has taught me so much in such little time. You wont regret having her as your instructor.

PPP - Professional, Patient, Precise (Exceptionally Outstanding)

For such a young person Nanette is at the very top of her game and she loves her profession. That love is felt and gives me much confidence in my ability to improve and one day perform a rock song.

She is very precise in explaining each note, how to arch your fingers and move between notes.

Take Lessons is very fortunate to have Nanette!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So happy we found her!

Nanette is professional, knowledgeable and a fantastic teacher. My son already plays guitar, but needed Classical training to prepare for College. A mutual friend suggested Nanette, and I am so grateful! She is perfect for us!
Daniel M. Canoga Park, CA

About Daniel

I have a very unique musical background compared to other guitarists. My first instrument was alto saxophone in middle school. I played it through high school and a bit in college. After I graduated high school I taught myself guitar and drum set. I also spent 5 years in drum and bugle corps on trumpet and euphonium. As part of my studies I also learned keyboard. This means my perspective and experience in music is different than other guitar teachers. There are many concepts I have learned from other instruments that I can pass down to students. *** Lesson Details *** From the start I will help you set goals you want to reach. Whether it's to learn a specific song or become familiar with a new genre, goals go a long way to keeping you focused and motivated. In each lesson I will make

I am a beginner at bass and Joshua is very patient. He makes learning fun and teaches in a way that is easy to follow. He is a very skilled musician and his passion for music shows. I highly recommend him.
Brian N. Van Nuys, CA

We'll work to find the music that inspires you and work on forming a solid technical foundation along the way.

I encourage students to learn to read simple musical notation and basic music theory, but everyone's individual goals are accommodated, as well.

About Brian

I've been making my living playing all kinds of music for over ten years. I feel that working on and creating music night in and night out with bands and artists from rock to hip-hop, pop to jazz, folk and country to disco has given me unique insights into what makes a good bassist. There's a balance to be struck between theory and instinct, as well as technique and emotion. I tailor each lesson to each student, creating most of my own lesson materials. These can range from pages of scales and arpeggios, to full transcriptions and even audio recordings of practice tracks. I like technology and feel it can be a valuable part of the learning experience. But generally, I teach by having students learn songs and basslines, then illustrate musical ideas and principles by pulling ...

Easy going guy, totally prepared for lesson when I arrived. Had printouts and a folder for me ready to take home for practicing. He was understanding of my changing schedule and happy to move our lesson around to accommodate.

Super encouraging, I would recommend him to anyone just starting to learn an instrument or maybe having trouble getting past a technique issue. Gave me gentle reminders to correct technique issues early, which is invaluable. Unfortunately, due to a job change, I can't take lessons anymore, but when I come back I will be taking them from Brian again.
Andrea B. North Hollywood, CA

I can teach you how to play with fingers and pick, walking bass Lines for blues or jazz, popular rock and pop songs.

About Andrea

I come from Italy, but have been living in the US for the past twelve years. I have achieved two degrees (production & performance) cum laude at the prestigious Berklee College Of Music in Massachusetts and have ever since worked as a guitarist and producer. I have been teaching for over ten years privately and in schools. I have helped students of all levels from beginners to fellow professionals. My philosophy is to make the learning process as enjoyable as possible and at the same time make sure the student keeps marking solid progress towards their goals. I believe to achieve that as many of my students told me I had helped them not just in the subject, but in their overall confidence, concentration skills and the quality of their study or practice.

Andrea is a very good guitar teacher, I can guarantee. While he was in Italy this summer, I had the chance to take a few lessons from him. I am a beginner, so we focused on rather simple things, but what I can say without a doubt is that his approach to teaching is very useful and at the same time funny. I had taken some lessons with other teachers before, but they were somehow dull and left me a sensation of "incompleteness" like I hadn't been able to fully comprehend what was taught to me. This was not the case. Plus, he's Italian, so could you ask for more than a good lesson AND pasta?
