Mike S.

Sherman Oaks, CA

I teach reading rhythms, playing with a bend and how to groove!

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.

William B.

Los Angeles, CA

I recently graduated with a Drum Set Performance and Music Education dual degree at Berklee College of Music (in August 2014), and I am extremely capable of taking on students at all levels. I am a very patient teacher, and easy to work with. If the student is willing to take the time to practice, we can go a long way in not very much time at all. I am learned in drumming styles ranging from classical percussion to corps-style rudiment-based drumming to jazz/rock/Latin drum set.

About William

I'm a graduate from Berklee College of Music where I studied Music Performance (for Drum Set) and Music Education. I've studied under great teachers including Rod Morgenstein, Henrique De Almeida, Jackie Santos, Steve Wilkes, and the list goes on. I also have experience performing in a wide variety of contexts and genres. In your lessons with me I will help you to achieve any musical goals you have as well as to take your current skills up to the next level and beyond. I have a wealth of knowledge about music theory and teaching methodology, as well as experience in execution of these skil
ls. Your lessons with me will be fun as well as informative, and if you are willing to put in the work I can guarantee you will make progress as my student.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm an easy-going guy, so I won't push you very hard unless you want me too. My lessons will focus on achieving your goals. If you want to master your instrument in general, we will focus on theoretical concepts and technique. If you are looking for a fun time and just trying to learn a few songs, I will help you to do that as well. Regardless of your learning goals, I will strive to make my lessons entertaining as well as informative, and together we will make rapid progress if you're willing to put in some work!

Excepting students of all ages and all levels in and around the greater Twin Cities area.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students must provide their own instruments and have something available to take notes with, but I will provide materials and anything else that is needed.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Drum Set, all genres, but my strongest ones are Rock, Jazz, and Latin styles. I can teach lessons through advanced levels on drums of all sorts and percussion. I can teach or tutor Music Theory to a very high level as well. I am also proficient enough to teach beginner-intermediate piano.

William is a great teacher. I would recommend him for anyone seeking a teacher for children. He teaches both of ours (5 and 8). He has infinite patience, and power of redirection!

They both enjoy lessons--and they're learning!

An excited learning experience

I have had lessons for a month with Billy, and will continue to study with him in future. He is an excellent teacher. Nothing to neat pick, everything is just amazing. He taught every single details of what I should know about drumming, recommended a really helpful textbook to me, and even helped to make my practice a great fun other than a dull work for a beginner. I really appreciate those. If someone is expecting to have an effective and pleasing learning experience, just go ahead try to work with Billy. It is absolutely worth the time and effort. Hope that'd be helpful.

Brianna S.

Los Angeles, CA

Focus on rudiments, fundamentals, technique. Snare solos, and different set techniques.

Drum lessons are only offered at the student's location.

About Brianna

Hi, I'm Bri! I'm a graduate of North Central College with a BA in Music (Emphasis in Composition and Percussion) and a minor in History. I absolutely love music, every single aspect of it. I want and love to make music a part of everybody's lives who want and need it. I want to help you with your musical needs. I have been playing percussion for 16 years, singing for 22, and playing piano for 18 years. I am currently in a recording and performing Chicago band, Oblio and Arrow where I provide backing vocals and help with the song arrangements. I also record vocals for different artists hooks, j
ingles, choruses, and entire songs (covers and originals).

History has always fascinated me. They way our world has developed and changed, and continues to evolve is amazing. Everything can be tied back to the past, and I feel it's important to take a look back, put yourself in that time, and really study how things were to help understand why things are the way they are now.

Crocheting and knitting are a couple of good habits/hobbies I picked up about 6 years ago. I sell scarves online and I'm always working on some sort of project. I will have you knitting and pearling with the best of them!

Music, history, crochet, and knitting....I'm your girl!

Teresa Y.

Northridge, CA

I prepare young beginners who have an interest in drum set with the fundamentals of this fascinating instrument that is a BLAST to play. Drumming is particularly good for kinesthetic learners who thrive on the physicality and challenge of it.

With two adult drummer sons, I've been "schooled" in drumming forever. I use rhythm instruments and movement to work with students who need some preparation before they are ready to tackle the drum set. Then we get to it!

About Teresa

A musician since age 4, Teresa's dad took her early passion for music seriously. So she respects the power that parents have to foster their children's musical lives! She notes the many stories she has heard over the years: "If someone had just supported my interest"... "If my teacher had listened to what I wanted to learn."

These stories and her own passion for music-making inform her approach. A degreed music educator and multi-instrumentalist, she celebrates and uses the musical interests of her students to move them forward. She has three grown sons, including two touring musicians. Th
eir musical lives also influence her work with children, young people, and adults. The point is to celebrate and develop each student's unique, interest-based musical self-expression.

In her home teaching studio in Sherwood Forest, CA, half an hour is the perfect lesson time. Options include piano, voice, beginning guitar and ukulele, music theory, and preparation for auditions. Teresa also conducts "music fun time" sessions for 2 to 4 year olds. 45-minute and 60-minute sessions are available as needed, and are recommended for audition prep.

For a little more info on Teresa, her additional "grownup" professional passion is Life Coaching. If anyone in your circle would be helped by coaching, consider referring them to Teresa right here on TakeLessons.com.

Athan is such a patient instructor. With me being an "older" student who doesn't learn as fast as I used to, he is very encouraging and nurturing. He is very talented and overall a great teacher. I hope I will become as good as him as a drummer one day. =)
