About Frank

As I had started to play the bass when I was 13 I quickly became a musical sponge and ceased every opportunity I had to play music every day. I played in garage bands with my friends and even jazz gigs with my father's co-workers. I spent a solid 5 years playing with as many local musicians as I could in my small Alaskan town. By 18 I had attended two years in the University's music Academy and been promoted to a mentor position. A year later I decided to pursue my music career in Los Angeles and educate myself at a Bachelor level at Musicians Institute. After 3 years of intense study and graduation I have played with many artists who have had songs placed on TV and film, recorded with Grammy-award winning names, and constantly on call for around the city. I am very excited to be a part

a great teacher with a lot to learn from

I've had the privilege of taking several lessons from Frank.

Being an entry level musician, Frank is attentive toward my understanding of his direction and continually pushes me to better myself as a player.

His credentials do not lie as he is a gifted and passionate musician who simply enjoys passing along his knowledge to others.

I will continue to take lessons from Frank into the future and urge all others who are seeking a positive experience to do so as well.

Excellent Bass Teacher

My son has been working with Frank for the past several months and has quickly progressed in his technique playing Bass. Frank has a great teaching style and really listens to my son's questions and requests to play what he is interested in. I highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a patient and excellent Bass or Guitar teacher. He understands how to teach and connect with his students.

Brandon is the best of the best

I tried taking guitar lessons with other teachers in the past but always ended up quitting because it felt too hard. I met Brandon and got a really great vibe from him so I decided to give lessons a try. Brandon will make you feel totally comfortable and his awesome personality makes learning guitar really fun. He'll take his time and focus on whatever it is you want to learn and make sure you really understand it before moving on. After one class I had learned more than I had in any other classes I'd taken in the past and felt excited to go home and practice, which I never had felt in the past. He is incredibly talented and I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to learn from him.

Outstanding guitarist / guitar instructor!!

Brandon is a great guy. He is very easy going but at the same time has the presence of mind you want in a teacher; he pays strict attention to detail and finds ways of explaining musical ideas and concepts in simple easy to digest ways that make him unique among other music teachers. Brandon is an outstanding guitarist and guitar teacher! Thanks for all the help over the last six months Brandon! See you next week!
Jennifer T. Valley Village, CA

About Jennifer

Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, Jen T. was 13 years old when she picked up her first guitar, rescuing her mom’s dusty old acoustic from the family’s attic. Quickly developing a love for the instrument, Jen headed west to sharpen her craft at LA’s esteemed Musicians Institute, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in music performance. While studying at MI, Jen formed the folk-pop duo Jen & Abby with vocalist Abby Miller. With their quirky style and catchy tunes, the band soon gained a devoted following through gigs at many renowned LA venues, including The Key Club, House of Blues, and Hotel Café. Following the release of their 2008 debut album Cannot Rearrange, the band’s music was featured in multiple films and television commercials. Jen has been sought out by many other ...

Best guitar teacher I have ever had

Jen is a fabulous guitar player that has an innate ability to teach with understanding and patience. If I am not understanding a certain exercise, she is able to break it down for me in multiple ways so I can better understand how to perform.
I tend to get nervous to share new songs I have written but Jen's down-to-earth personality has definitely helped me begin to break out of shell.
I highly recommend Jen as your next music teacher.

Awesome passionate personality with ton of knowledge

It has been a total joy being instructed by Jen. Jen's passion in playing the guitar is extremely radiant, so you know you're in good hands with a passionate instructor. Myself not being the fastest of learners, totally felt comfortable by Jen's style of teaching. She provided a very relaxed and confident atmosphere :)I came in with an idea of what I wanted from the guitar, and Jen provided structure and guidance from the ground-up. You will totally feel your money being used on a superb, passionate, and knowledgable instructor! :)

Highly recommended: Amazing teacher!

Mike is a patient, supportive and incredibly talented teacher. From music theory to practical application, he's got all the answers... And he makes learning fun!

I took guitar lessons more than ten years ago and found it frustrating and I was terribly uninspired. Recently I took my old guitar out of mothballs and was determined to make some progress on the dang thing. A good friend recommended Mike and I've been taking lessons for nine months with him.

What's great about Mike is that he customizes my lessons. I'm not learning out of a book (which, I could if wanted) but I'm learning the songs that I love and learning the theory behind the chords, too. Then he keeps building on what we just learned. I go home from my hour lessons and play for another two hours because I'm so inspired.

I can't recommend Mike highly enough. He's a gem of a music instructor in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles.
