John G.

Spring Valley, CA

About John

I am a 34 year old professional musician, and Instructor. I teach Trumpet, French Horn, Voice/Singing, and can also tutor in several subjects related to History and I also teach Tennis lessons as well. Since August 2011 I have also been employed as the Brass Section Coach for the Ramona High School Band Program. I have 24 years experience playing trumpet, French Horn and Singing and play in several groups around the San Diego area including:
The New City Sinfonia (Chamber Orchestra)
The Amalgamated, (a Ska/Reggae Band)
Full Strength Funk Band
Heartland Brass Ensemble
Trumpets R Us
larmonica Portuguesa Uniao De San Diego
Tierrasanta Lutheran Church,

I am very passionate about music, from learning to teaching, practicing, performing and recording. Every day my goal is to promote music, learn, practice and help people enjoy music either by listening or performing.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will start with good solid warm-up exercises focusing on breathing and proper technique for Brass playing.
The 2nd part of lessons will be technique, Scales and method books for trumpet and french horn.
The last part of lessons will be working on Solo repertoire and learning songs for performance, sight reading, playing duets and learning jazz improvisation if interested. Lessons will include sight reading, play along/sing along CD's Scales and technique as well as theory.

For my Trumpet Students I use Herbert L. Clarke Technical Studies Book to help improve aerobic endurance, technical and finger velocity as well as production of good tone quality. I will also use the Earl Irons Group of 27 exercises as well as the Max Schlossberg Method to help improve air flow, breathing control and fluidity of sound throughout all registers. I also use the J. B. Arban's Conservatory method for other techniques including scales, double and triple tonguing, intervals as well as duets and solo repertoire.
For jazz minded students I will start with basic fundamentals of improvisation including melodic improv, Blues forms and blues scales as well as reading through chord changes and playing in several modes and other scales used in jazz.

I also provide tailored instruction on Bugling, and the proper playing of military bugle calls for those students interested as well as those involved with Boy Scouts who wish to earn their Bugle Merit Badge.

For my French Horn Students I will use the same technique books as Trumpet but learning traditional French Horn Solo repertoire, as well as Brass quintet/choir repertoire and orchestral and concert repertoire. Focus for French Horn students will be mainly on control of partials and tuning techniques.

For my Voice students I will start with good breathing technique and warm up exercises designed to get the vocal chords warmed up and get all the other muscles relaxed in order to produce great tone quality. Focus will be on intonation, and learning to use the air and support to extend the vocalists range higher and lower as well as gain power and confidence in singing.
Each Vocal student will have a piece to practice or will bring a piece of their choosing in that they would like to learn and this will be used to apply the techniques learned at the beginning of lessons. Styles of singing that I sing and can teach are Classical, Jazz, Big Band and Standards, Oldies, Pop, Country, Soul, Rock, R&B, Christian Rock and Church Music and also harmonizing like in a duet style or choir/vocal ensemble setting. I will also teach performance techniques, showmanship, stage presence and the overall performance package every singer needs to have confidence while singing.

I am a classically trained musician on Trumpet, French Horn and Voice and reading music, articulations, dynamics and learning musical forms is an essential part to any performers success. I also have studied various jazz styles and improvisational techniques as well. I want to teach students the basics of good musicianship and help them to excel in learning, practicing and performing in their own selected styles of music, whether its classical music, or jazz/rock/pop/country and any other styles students are interested in.

For Academic students who need tutoring I have a very extensive background in history, specifically focusing on US History, Military History, and the study of different eras including major war eras. Academic tutoring can be geared towards the understanding, comprehension and critical thinking understanding of the subject matter, as well as research, essay writing, as well as public speaking and project presentation.

For Tennis Students, I focus on the basics from footwork, to basic swing mechanics as well as strategy. Tennis lessons can be geared to develop specific areas of the game of tennis, or an overall game improvement whether for those who want to be competitive, or just enjoy a friendly game more.

*** Studio Equipment ***

My main teaching location is my private studio in Spring Valley and at the Ramona Music Center in downtown Ramona for students in the area. I have all items needed including music stands, CD player for play along programs as well as an upright piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When traveling I can bring my own personal music stand and electric keyboard with stand as well. Technique and song repertoire and theory books I can provide when needed.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Jazz, Reggae, Ska, Pop, Rock, Hard Rock, Funk, Soul, R&B, Blues, Church/Worship.

JR is excellent in assessing a student's skill level. Once he has determined it he immediately begins challenging the student with fun drills that focus in on improving areas where the student is struggling. Not a moment of the lesson is lost, everything is focused on moving to the next challenge - although patiently.

About Kirk

Hello Students/Parents:

I'm a 24 year old hip hop dancer residing in San Diego. Graduated from ITT Technical Institute.

I've been dancing for 8 years, competing for 3 years, and teaching for 4 years.

I'm the coolest most laid back guy you will ever meet. I like to laugh a lot and make sure that everyone around me is laughing too. I'm patient and understanding when it comes to kids/adults with special needs. We all have two feet in common and the love for music so let's dance!

2007- I started dancing my freshmen year of high school.

2008- I
got onto my first junior hip hop competing team, Syde FX and trained for 2 years.
2010- I got onto my first adult hip hop competing team, Urban FX
2012 to Present- I've danced for Sea World and international artists, I've danced on KUSI news, I've competed in all-style battles. I've danced for Cirque Du Soleil in Las Vegas. I am currently trying to push for movies, and back up dancing for artists music videos.

***Please click the *''Photos'' and the ''Videos'' section* to know more about me as well as staying up to date with my latest videos!***

My goal:
Is to teach you to GROOVE before you MOVE.

*Assuming you take 1 lesson a week

Day 1: Figuring out what you want to work on and goals you want to achieve. Talking so we get to know each other. 30-minute routine that you can take home and practice anywhere.

Month 1: You will have basics down and feeling more confident in ability.

Month 2: This month is where we play with YOUR creativity and YOUR character to build up your musicality. This is important so your dance style is not like anybody else's. You don't want to be a clone!

Month 3: Checking progress and giving constructive criticism.

Month 4: We'll pump up the tunes on a nice day at the park and just have a freestyle session not caring who see's to build up confidence in ability and musicality.

Month 5+: Continuous checkups on how your dancing is going and advanced techniques and tips will be taught from here.

When learning from Kirk he really does a good job breaking moves down for me. He really works with you 1 on 1 if you do have trouble. I took a class from him and it his home studio and I gotta say his class really is beneficial! I take classes at other dance studios but Kirk's teaching is fun and makes you wanna keep coming back!!

Thanks for the good time with me and my friends!!

About Jim

If you're looking for the best golf instructor in San Diego that WILL improve your game - there's no better place.
Come take a lesson - you WILL improve... in just ONE lesson.
Golf is the blending/marriage of the laws of physics and rules of biomechanics (how the body and it's joints work). If you're not working with an instructor that has a clear and intimate knowledge of that, your improvement will be limited and/or fleeting.
I've received the reviews I have because I know the golf-swing, and I always pinpoint EXACTLY what needs to be fixed. I communicate
those needed changes clearly using the latest CMV video to help with visualization and then work with my golf students tirelessly to make the needed change.
There IS an optimal way for everyone to swing the club.
Just take a quick look at the advances I make with ALL my students (not just "some"... ALL) in just one lesson. (See my Channel on YouTube). Come take one lesson and you'll experience golf shots you never thought were possible.
Granted, because each person's stature is different (tall, short, shorter/longer arms/legs) each person's swing may "look" slightly different, but swings that produce CONSISTENT shots that maximize POWER all have the same 4 ELEMENTS.
My students receive a Private FULL One-Hour Golf Lesson. Including using the New CMV iPad Video system so you can immediately see your swing frame-by-frame... before/after... as well as compared side-by-side to tour-pro swings.
Lessons given out of JR Southbay Golf Range. 3631 Bonita Rd in Bonita/Chula Vista.
This facility has a large grass-range area (not just Mats) and a big open short-game area.
Professional Golf Instruction from - Jim Hassey
Contact me and if I'm in the middle of giving a lesson I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Jim definitely knows what he's talking about! He helped me to make some major adjustments to my swing and captured the results on before/after video that I now have to review. I recommend Jim to anyone looking to improve their game!

Jim went above and beyond to give us the best quality lessons. First, our lesson was scheduled for an hour but he put almost an hour of extra time in to help our stroke. Jim took before and after videos of our stroke and broke them down so we could see where our mistakes were made and how we could correct them. We even received a video comparing or swing to pro golfers. After one lesson we saw noticeable improvement and will definitely be back for more!

About Sara

Hi! My name is Miss Sara. I have over 20 years of dance training and 9 years of dance instruction experience. I specialize in youth and adult dance instruction in the styles of: tap, jazz, ballet, contemporary and musical theater for beginner to advanced levels. I also have a background in gymnastics, cheerleading and danceline/pom.

As a student, I studied: ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, hip-hop, musical theater, bellydancing and gymnastics. Hailing from Minnesota, I was a member of my high school dance team and captain of my high school cheerleading squad. As a teenager, I was involved
in the Teacher Assistant program at my dance studio, which is where I found my passion for teaching. As an instructor since 2008, I have taught students ages Preschool to Adult in various styles. I have taught for both dance studios and community programs and I have also instructed both recreational and competitive dance classes.

If you are not wanting to commit to a class, pay studio prices or are not sure if a classroom setting is the best for you or your child, please contact me for private dance lessons offered at your home or Online. I want to give you or your child an introduction dance before you/the parent decide to commit to a studio or program!

I have also choreographed for community musicals and weddings. Please contact me if you are tying the knot and want some ideas for a first dance!

YES I offer WEDDING DANCE CHOREOGRAPHY for couples tying the knot. No dance experience required! All lessons currently offered in San Diego County only.

I provide music for our lessons. I am also able to cut/edit music for an additional fee per song if student is wanting to use it for an audition/performance. For lessons that are just for fun, I will supply the student with music (MP3 or CD) of the routine I teach so you can practice and perform it on your own. All choreography is original and age-appropriate. Dance shoes (ballet, tap, jazz) are encouraged, but not required. Let me know if you have questions about where or how to buy them!

"It is a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together". I believe this whole-heartedly about myself as a dance instructor. I enjoy sharing my love for dance with others!
