e their passion with family and friends as they create music.

Students will have full access during lesson time to recording equipment. The best way to learn how to improve is to listen to yourself play. The student will be able to take home recordings of themselves and study what they can work on, helping them to make the decision on what they would like to improve on.

Students are encouraged to use Alfreds Method Books for Snare and Drum Set, Riley Books, and the Chester book for independence. Also, I teach the Faber Piano Adventures Series. Alfred's and Hal Leonard for guitar.

A cancellation 24hrs in advance is always appreciated.

Kerry is an awesome instructor! He's professional for starters. He adheres to the time that is set and/or communicates if it requires otherwise. He is great at setting a child and parent at ease. His level of knowledge and experience is exceptional. One can tell he really loves his craft. He chose to teach my 3 year old when most instructors wouldn't because of his age given that my son wasn't 5 years of age. My little one enjoys the lesson, therefore I enjoy the lesson. He also encourages parents to get involved with the lesson. Overall, I am enjoying the investment and will continue as long as my child is willing to learn and Kerry is willing to teach. Parents should know that going with this instructor wouldn't be a waste.

Experienced upright/electric bassist playing for ~15 years and teaching for 5 years.

I have experience with many genres of music, including Funk, NeoSoul, Afrobeat, R&B, HipHop, Rock, Folk, Classical, Jazz (swing, bebop, hardbop, avant garde, fusion), Latin/Brazilian (salsa, merengue, bossa nova, samba). Looking forward to meeting you!

I have had the great fortune to play original music in a group with Zephyr for the last year. His compositions are incredibly fun to play, and I feel that he worked on them with a very clear concept in mind. I've learned so much about my own musical aesthetic from working with him. I can imagine that he encourages students to find their unique approach to music as well.

Few lessons with Zeph at our place when we lived together and subsequently at my house. Zeph was patient and showed me lots about chord voicing. He both showed me progressions that highlighted the kinds of modification possible and helped me to include more variety in my own compositions. We'd play through a bit of my stuff first usually, then move in to more of the lesson. After working on that, we'd go back into something of mine with more focus and precision. Zeph was good at matching my skill level, and keeping the content and the focus consistent with what I could understand at the time. His knowledge of music theory was, at least for me, expansive enough that his answers and references ended up being very helpful. He introduced tone substitution, for instance, in a super easy to understand way.

All in all, great experiences over the last 5+ years and I'll definitely be working with him while I'm in California.

Marc is a patient, and a diligent teacher. He's creative and applies multiple ideas in getting me to "get it" when I'm stuck. I am very pleased with my experience. He's an accomplished musician and I can tell he studies how to make others learn best. He also makes certain to praise my progress and, he's not afraid to shift gears if my playing interest is getting stale.

I came into this with NO experience. A complete novice AND, a left handed novice at that! After 8 lessons now, I've progressed really well and I'm satisfied with the outcomes so far. I'm on my way!

And, I highly recommend Marc!

Lessons with Marc have been a blast. I have never taken guitar lessons before. Marc's encouragement and enthusiasm immediately put me at ease and got me excited to be playing. He really went out of way to find out what I was interested in learning and gave me suggestions of new music to listen to based on what I want to learn. He does an excellent job breaking musical concepts down to make learning easier. It is clear he cares a lot about teaching and his passion for music is contagious. I highly recommend taking lessons from Marc!

Burbank, CA

View Full Profile

Depending on the interests of the student I can cover a wide variety of playing styles. However, all students learn proper left hand technique and basic musicianship (reading, ear training) as well as a composition-focused approach to music theory to get students writing their own songs quickly.

About Scott
Originally hailing from the frozen wastelands of Anchorage, Alaska where I made my living teaching music to interested polar bears, I moved south in search of warmer climates over 6 years ago. Utilizing a diverse musical background and a deep knowledge of theory I strive to provide my students with a unique and tailored lesson plan to help them realize their wildest musical dreams.

As a songwriter and performer for over 20 years I have worked with punk bands, jazz bands, traditional Irish folk bands, psychedelic jazz punk, and as a solo classical performer including performing with the Anchorage Symphony Orchestra, and for the world famous Romero family during their Anchorage masterclass.

My students can expect to learn classical technique and composition, but applied to the music that motivates and stimulates them. I want my studen
ts to love playing more than I want them to pass recitals.
