I have studied music for 26 years. Piano was my first instrument and I have taken classical lessons from an early age and studied jazz piano for 14 years. I play guitar at the same level as piano. I play jazz, classical, flamenco and rock guitar; acoustic, electric and 9-string electric. I have studied at University of North Texas, Musicians institute and have a bachelor's of music from UNM. I have a certification in early childhood education and love to teach children, as well as adults of all ages.
*** Lesson Details *** I am very patient and flexible. I work with the student to design curriculum that is exciting and engaging for their individual level. Students enjoy studying with me because they can progress quickly if they practice and because I am easy to talk to and work with.
*** Studio Equipment *** The In-Studio
lessons are taught in the music room in the home which includes an 88 key weighted keyboard, 5 guitars, 3 amps
*** Travel Equipment *** If I go to their house, I expect them to have their own instruments that they practice on during the week, a metronome, a tuner and the music books they are working on.
*** Specialties *** I specialize in jazz, rock and classical music. I usually allow the students or their parents to choose their method books based on their interests and goals.
He has taught me a lot. Lessons are not rushed. He allows me to learn based on my own interests, but also teaches a lot of basics of technique and music theory. The location is convenient to downtown Albuquerque and UNM neighborhood.

Chris is easy to learn with, and knowledgeable. Is always patient and never makes you feel rushed, yet, makes sure you are constantly improving. He directs your playing in the style and direction you want to reach while exposing you to new styles along the way. Great teacher.
I have been making music for over 15 years. I have a diverse background. I started out sampling, and sequencing all types of music back in the 90's. I made dance music, hiphop, RnB, rock, etc. I was more of a producer than performer then. Then I decided to go to school and get a degree in music. I went to Cal State San Marcos and obtained my bachelors in music. I developed into a fingerstyle guitarist while I was there. I also learned how to play the piano while I was there. But I concentrated on the acoustic guitar.
*** Specialties *** Blues, Folk, Rock, Country, Hip Hop, Soul, Indie, Electronic
The ukulele is a beautiful and versatile instrument. You will learn to strum and fingerpick, learn correct posture, and hand position. You can also learn to sing and accompany yourself on the ukulele.
This little instrument goes a long way!
Hello there, future string players and welcome to my profile!!
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and raised in Miami, FL. I started my musical career at the age of 8, singing in chorus, playing the recorder, and shortly afterwards moving to the guitar, and the violin.
When I was 15, I was nominated for a James L. Knight Award in Music, and I performed as a violin soloist with the Miami Beach Symphony Orchestra, and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony playing Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major. One of my most memorable experiences when I was a kid! In high school, I formed my own string quartet and we would perform all over the South Florida community especially at hospitals and for the elderly. At 16 years old, I was also given an internship with the New World Symphony, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas, for about 2
years. During this time, I was able to take lessons from master violinists such as Marc Thayer and Glen Cherry. During this time, I was given the opportunity to perform with the New World Symphony at 17 years old for pops concert conducted and performed by Chuck Mangione in El Doral, FL.
I later on accepted a scholarship for violin performance at the University of Miami for my Bachelor of Music, and earned my Master of Music from Florida State University. I also taught string orchestras for 10 years at Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor K-8 Center, South Florida Youth Symphony as conductor (and now composer!), and conductor of the Greater Miami Youth Symphony. I was appointed Assistant Conductor of the Alhambra Orchestra for two seasons under the guidance of my high school orchestra teacher, Mr. Reginald Nicholson (1947-2011). It was here where I was able to work on my compositions, orchestrations, and conduct a fine group of musicians.
I now live in sunny Los Angeles, in the Sherman Oaks area, and I'm loving the new change. I am eager to share my knowledge with new students on various subjects such as learning a string instrument to learning a different language. Please feel free to ask me any questions.
I am looking forward to getting to know you and your goals for learning! ____________________________________________________
LESSON DETAILS I have been teaching music as an adult, certified teacher since I was in college, but have done teaching as early as 15 years old.
I will help you create a fantastic technical base so you will be able to play with ease as your skill level develops, all while keeping the lessons fun and engaging.
MUSIC STUDIO Piano, Violin, Guitar, Music Stand, General Teaching Aids, Recording Equipment.
TRAVEL EQUIPMENT I can provide a music stand and basic materials but the student is expected to have their own instruments and to buy the music I recommend. I can recommend various vendors/shops where you can buy the ideal instrument for your lessons.
EXPERTISE I am classically-trained musician that also specializes in Tango performance, Latin/Jazz, Rock, and a variety of other styles. I believe that training in the classical aesthetic will create a firm, solid foundation to crossover into other areas listed above. With a good dose of technical exercises, scales, and a variety of repertoire, my students always turn out well-rounded, ready to tackle almost any kind of music they wish to learn.
Thank you for stopping by and let me know what you would like to learn!
Amazing lessons! Nicolas is methodical in his teaching and shows patience, dedication, and a kind heart. My 10 year-old daughter loves her lessons. I highly recommend him!
August 7, 2018
One the best intructors I’ve had in years! Nick really knows his music theory, orchestration, and compositional techniques. He’s helped me appreciate the intricacies of creating music for myself and others. He challenges me to do my very best. Thank you, Nick!
July 24, 2018
Nick is the perfect balance of dedicated teacher and incredible human being. Our 9 year old son loves his violin lessons with him. We are delighted we found him! Thank you, Nick!
Oh boy, do I love the Ukulele! This instrument is FUN. I became passionate about the ukulele a few years ago.This instrument is fun. We will learn our chords, learn a lot of unique strumming patters and work on our rhythm. We will also learn how to take some classic rock and roll guitar songs and turn them into happy-go-lucky-uke tunes! This instrument is PERFECT for beginners - adults and children!
I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm.
I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice and the journey of patience. The process of learning has helped me carve out and cultivate my style of music. It's opened up a lot of doors for me in my life. I've had the honor to play with a lot of great performers and have been lucky enough to tour the U.S. and Canada with festivals and showcases such as Vans Warped Tour, South By Southwest and the Halifax Pop Explosion.I've been the opening act for Carolyn Wonderland, Maria Taylor, Tsunami Bomb, Tilly and the Wall, Basia Bulat, Rise Against, Strike Anywhere. Anathallo, Cursive, Milton Hopki
ns, and Pony Up.
When I have free time I volunteer with the Houston Chapter of Girls Rock Camp to help teach girls empowerment through songwriting and music.
*** Lesson Details *** I began teaching as an afterschool job when I was 16. I was homeschooled, so I feel that the experience taught me that everyone learns differently and that there is not just one standardized method to playing music.
My teaching style varies with each student, but the one constant is my ability to make each and every client I encounter completely fall in LOVE with music. It's my super power.
Lesson plans are tailored for your specific needs and to help you achieve your musical goals and aspirations at your desired pace. I enjoy my students and making music with them.
Here is an overview of the lessons that I provide.
As a musician for 20 years I have had the privilege of learning various instruments besides my primary instrument of guitar. Several years ago I started ukulele, through my years of professional experience in learning music theory, guitar, and bass I have been able to apply my string knowledge to the ukulele which I am now offering to my students!
FALL SALE GOING ON NOW!!!!!!!!

Very patient and informative. Allowed me to ask endless questions. Addressed all my concerns and removed any doubt about this arrangement working specifically for me and my schedule. His studio has a very nice setup and it's simplified. We did a breakdown of my experience and focused on setting realistic goals towards my learning process. More than a "Teacher" of music but a "Professor" of guitar methods! He focused in on getting me comfortable with the most basic of finger techniques, finger placement and familiarized with the sections of the solo lead guitar. After an hour's session my mind was put at ease about my ability to be patient with myself. I was never made to feel awkward or out of my league. This caused me to open up and to really focus. Mr.Cole has a great style and passion towards helping me to soak in as much content as possible. His location is within a community that's family orientated. I look forward to being tutored by Mr.Cole over the course of the next year without any complications.

Johan here and I love music! Nice to meet you fellow music lover.
I have been involved in music since I was just a child. It started with learning piano, then guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, djembe and so many more.
I’ve continued to learn and perfect my craft by being apart of different types of bands from small to large with varying genres of music. I also formalized my music education with a bachelor of Art in Music. Did I mention I’m also quite a harmonizer? Sign up today and maybe I’ll throw in some tips with your instrument lesson.
Johan was great. Very helpful in prepping for the session and we look forward to working with him in the future!
March 15, 2019
This was only my first less with Johan -- it was such fun, I felt so encouraged and can't wait for my next. He's just terrific! Very kind and clear and again - the key word - encouraging! A great teacher!
April 25, 2018
Johan is great with kids! My son is a very active child, and he was able to make the lesson fun and engaging. More than that, I enjoyed seeing Johan be creative, listen to the child, and make music fun, more than being it a lesson (per say). I highly recommend Johan!

Frank is a patient and engaging teacher who lets the student's interests guide development while incorporating guitar fundamentals along the way!

I have been taking lessons with Frank for several years and I think he is an excellent instructor. He has helped me have confidence in my abilities and is patient when I get frustrated. He has been able to teach me about music theory in such a way that it is understandable. I have been to some of his performances and he is a talented musician as well as instructor.

I have developed a great ukulele program for very young learners. I use color coded chords to make learning fast and easy. Along with learning to self accompany, students will also learn basic singing skills and pitch relations.
My name is Kara. I have been teaching music for 8-9 years and I absolutely love what I do. I have been playing piano for 27 years and I also do arrangements for local churches on the side. I specialize in teaching very young children. There is no greater satisfaction than instilling a love of music in a child. My teaching methods are a mixture of traditional piano training and techniques and fun games and activities to ensure a firm grasp of the material. Children learn best through play and I use this philosophy in my teaching.
"I had my first lesson with Omar and he was great! It's my first time to play any string instrument, but since I do have some experience with music, he tai
lored the lesson time to me. He was also enthusiastic about the music/songs I wanted to learn and I left my first lesson feeling excited to continue practicing."
"Jessica is a virtuoso on the ukulele. She has the patience of a saint with less than adept students. Yet she is insistent, in a gentle way, about instilli
ng correct form in her students' approach to the uke. In addition, she is a walking encyclopedia of songs that span the range from traditional to standards to current day favorites, and from country to r&B to rock and roll."
"John is great. I really enjoy my ukulele lessons with him."
"Great experience. Learning from a real pro"
"Liz is a skilled instructor who can communicate well in an online environment. She has a relaxed manner and encourages the student to extend him/herself
in order to learn and improve. Liz understands music theory as well as technique and is a good fit for a beginner or an advanced player - young or old. She is on time and dependable, has varied musical taste and I recommend her to anyone looking to begin or improve."
"Mary Ann is awesome! She is a great instructor, stays focused and fits a ton of instruction in each lesson. I've learned so much more in 5 lessons than I
learned in 2 years trying to teach myself. I highly recommend her!"
"remi accepts my personal style of expression. he likes a complete song to be sung to him with your best abilities. gives you time to grow. each lessons
introduces new music. also, makes sure any new notes introduced are know before rewriting or attempting to play. quite a variety of music and different strums. good lessons to expand your present skills on instrument and voice.!"
"Jason is very patient and encouraging.
I always feel better about my pace after our lesson."
"Rick did an excellent job with teaching me how to play the ukulele! Very fun person to be around and also very patient, as I do not have much experience.
