I've been teaching Bass Guitar for 27 years and my students have gone on to play in bands and work with major artists. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to know you way around the instrument and as time goes on you'll be able to play what you hear and want to play. I specialize in Pop, Rock & R&B and I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Gregory Valens Luv is a phenomenal vocal coach. He's very detailed in teaching you structure of the body to relax you and open you up for singing. I love his technique. I find myself very relaxed and limber which brings out the best in me. He's very creative and shares various types of vocalizations to help you with every style of music. He's also got a sweet spirit and that makes it very enjoyable to come to class.

I have taken guitar lessons with Greg. He is very patient and takes extra care to make sure that I understand the concepts in the lesson before moving on. He is able to determine a student’s experience level and skill set, and teach at any level from beginner to advanced. One of the things that I appreciate very much from Greg is that he has helped me develop my own unique style. My playing and songwriting skills have improved dramatically. Much thanks to Greg. I highly recommend him.

Mike S.

Sherman Oaks, CA

I teach music reading ,walking bass lines, classic rock, funk, and how to read chord charts.

About Mike

I have taught private guitar, piano, bass and drum lessons since the late 70s in Salt Lake City, where I majored in jazz guitar performance, and since 1980 in Los Angeles. I make the lessons fun. Some of my students have received college scholarships and won cash prizes for music contests. All of them had fun while learning and improving on their instruments.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very enthusiastic and can teach students how to read. If they do not want to read music, they can learn to play by ear. I can also show them where to put their fingers. During piano lessons, I often accompa
ny students on guitar and suggest a scale for improvisation, so they can play the blues. During drum lessons, I often play bass so they can learn to groove.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should have their own instrument and a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz improvisation on piano and guitar.
I also teach recreational guitar and piano for adults, including classical and blues styles.
I coach bass players and drummers in playing stylistically correct grooves for jazz, rock and latin music.

I developed a desire later in life to learn how to play jazz and blues piano. I was very fortunate to start learning from Mike. He started me out with basic blues and over time I progressed into many of the jazz standards. Because he is also an accomplished guitar player, at all his lessons, he would accompany me while I played the new piece of music I was learning. He also does this if you are learning the guitar. This was very helpful in giving me a more complete musical experience, as I also learned to hear and play with other musicians. He is an extremely patient and upbeat instructor, constantly giving me positive reinforcement. I would get a new tune to practice as I became more proficient with the previous one. Each new tune became progressively more challenging. Having taken lessons from Mike for many years, I also witnessed his teaching and developing of younger kids. He really works with them in a positive way giving them as much time as they need to turn the corner on each tune and progress forward. They seem to enjoy it and he has developed some great musicians. As part of his instruction, he gives all his students an opportunity to participate in a Jazz Band he puts together. In this Jazz Band he leads all the players in working together though a jam session. Other players may include guitarists, brass players and keyboardists, young and older. Frankly I am forever grateful to Mike for helping me create the foundation to play jazz and blues piano both alone and with a group of other musicians.

Norman was extremely qualified and talented. His lessons were suited to my individual needs and he answered the questions and worked with me to make the most out of my level and limited lesson time. I have learned a great deal and this experience with Norman was well worth the time and money. I am grateful for his lessons.

About Jeff

Hi, my name is Jeff. I received my Bachelors' in Music from Cal State Los Angeles and have taught music for over 30 years. I've played with the Drifters, Tower of Power, Brenda White, and Bobby Bradford. I have lead bands that have included alumni from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Jerry Lee Lewis, Count Basie, Chaka Khan, Smokey Robinson, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, the Temptations, Gladys Knight, Foreigner, Harry James, Joe Sample and the Jazz Crusaders, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Yanni and even Englebert Humperdink! I teach in a wide variety of styles and have the experience and knowledge from my y
ears of teaching and performing to greatly increase your knowledge about music and greatly improve your technique.

*** Lesson Details ***
I cater my lessons to the want and needs of the individual student. From all my years of teaching I've become a human jukebox and if I don't know a song that you would like to learn, I can figure it out for you note for note if you bring in the song on CD, iPod or anything else. Some students just want to play for their friends, family, church etc. and others want to learn how to improvise solos and learn a wide variety of styles. Whether it's rock, pop, jazz, blues, gospel, country or folk music I can and will teach you every scale, mode and chord known to mankind if that's what you need! It all depends on what YOU want to learn!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a fender mandolin, yamaha electric bass, taylor acoustic guitar, a fender stratocaster and telecaster, a gibson blues-hawk, a guild hollow-body electric, a hohner classical-electric guitar a music man amp, and a wurlitzer electric piano. i will expect you to bring your instrument but everything else will be here at the studio.

Jeff was very helpful and encouraging. I had not picked up a guitar in 45 years, but I found myself remembering chords and techniques that I had long forgotten about. Jeff is a very talented guitarist and the lessons are reasonably priced. The 45 minute lesson is a great deal.

Started with Jeff in January 2015 - I had tinkered off & on with guitar for about 50 years, could play a little folky stuff & bluegrass rhythm guitar but not well, never took lessons before and hadn't played much for about 40 years. Jeff started off by hearing what I could do (not much!) and went from there, mainly with rock stuff. He is a walking encyclopedia, patient, unpretentious and I have made a lot of progress and continue to feel better about it every week. I actually am inspired to practice! I would recommend Jeff to anyone who wants to learn. 5 stars!

Jeff is the best teacher when it comes to guitar. I've been receiving lessons from him since I was 10 and have continued the lessons over the years. Each lesson I take I get to learn something new and I am always entertained. I'm amazed at how well he teaches you every chord and technique in a simple and clear manner. He is patient and overall just an awesome person. May God bless him in his teaching career!

Moa H.

Los Angeles, CA

I believe it is important to have fun when learning a new instrument. Because, why do it if you don't enjoy it?
Therefore, I tailor all lessons per student to make sure you get the most out of your lessons. We can work on anything from learning new songs, to different techniques and theory or even performance.

About Moa

Seeing individuals improve their skill set and confidence through music is why teaching is one of my passions!

My name is Moa and I am a singer, guitarist and bassist. I am a Swedish native who decided to pursue my music career and moved to LA 4 years ago.

Since relocating to Hollywood, I have earned an AA degree in voice and independent artistry from Musicians Institute and travelled the world playing cruise ships, US air force bases, high schools and clubs all over the US, and especially SoCal with several bands. My main focus and "baby" is my band, Dead Heroine, where I am the lead
singer, songwriter and rhythm guitarist. We earned a slot at Warped Tour '15 and are currently writing new material for our sophomore EP while playing actively at high schools and clubs in the LA/OC area.

With over 7 years of professional teaching experience I am looking forward to work with you and help you in any way I can on your musical journey, wether it's improving your range, technique, confidence or you-name-it!

I am looking forward to working with you! :)

Just had my first lesson with Moa and it was a fantastic start. Moa has a great
ear, she can hear where I needed work and where I'm good at my voice. I'm excited that I can take what I learn and practice simply on my own. I'm looking forward till our next lessons where my voice will keep getting strong, all thanks to Moa!
