I specialize in providing a great foundation for learning the instrument. Too many students, new to the guitar, get frustrated and quit after just a few lessons, because it falls short of their expectations and they find they are not progressing. I make certain to keep the enthusiasm intact through the entire learning process by making sure the student is actually playing the instrument. I like to think of my method as "Fast Track to Playing Guitar"; my goal is to keep the student's interest in the instrument at a sustained level while they are grasping the fundamentals. Because I teach Voice as well, and have made a living accompanying myself on the guitar, I can combine those attributes for my students, if they desire to accompany themselves while singing. I find that many of my students really enjoy that option, and I have uncovered many a student who had never thought of themselves as a vocalist, singing and playing with astounding results... My success rate of having my students ...

About Glenn
I have been active in the entertainment industry since the age of 12, when I gave my first professional performance. Prior to that I was already being introduced to music with years of guitar, and then vocal instruction. I do not remember a time of my life when I was not singing somewhere; in the house, in the yard, in the classroom. That is perhaps why I identify so well with the young people who gather so much enjoyment from "just singing" at every opportunity. I studied professionally for over 10 years with renown soprano and voice teacher Sylvia Jensen, who was instrumental in the enhancement of my vocal knowledge and technique. She is now the Director of Education for the Miss Ohio pageants of the Miss America competitions, elevating many young ladies to the national spotlight. At age 14, I auditioned for, and was added to cast of a
network television variety program, "The Gene Carroll Show", that was a television institution for over 30 years in the Midwest. I was a featured performer on that program for over 7 years, all the while perfecting the art of "playing to a camera." This experience was invaluable, and the knowledge I gathered is now included in my curriculum. I also began performing a solo act in the nightclub circuit at the age of 15, performing up and down the "north coast" from Cleveland, OH, (my home), to Erie. PA. At a very young age, I learned the difficult art of choosing musical material and pacing a show; also adapting to performing under a myriad of conditions with a vast array of musical accompaniment. After graduating college with a degree in Business Administration and Marketing, I assembled my own band, and took to the road. That experience eventually brought the act to Las Vegas in 1982. Over the years my show has been a staple in major casino cabarets in Las Vegas, and all over Nevada. Since my first engagement at The Landmark Hotel in the early 1980's, I have literally been up and down the famed Las Vegas Strip many times over. The Desert Inn, The Dunes, The Stardust, The Maxim, The Tropicana, New York New York, Mandalay Bay, MGM, Bally's, The Flamingo, The Imperial Palace, The Four Queens, The Golden Nugget, The Fremont, The Venetian, The Palazzo, and a three year engagement at The Riviera. My show is truly comprised of musical variety; classics, show tunes, jazz, rock, blues, r&b, country. Even a presentation of "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera, that I perform in full costume. It is this ability to successfully deliver an extensive repertoire that I am enthusiastic about passing along to the next generation of entertainers.

I have been truly blessed in my career to have experienced so many highlights; too many to document. From winning an understudy roll in the Broadway Musical "Platinum" starring Hollywood actress Alexis Smith, to performing our National Anthem at events ranging from Major League Baseball to ESPN Boxing to receptions for major dignitaries, to recording 7 albums and a full-length video, to being asked to perform for Mr. Frank Sinatra at the Frank Sinatra Celebrity Golf Tournament, I have lived a full life on stage, learning and absorbing every bit of knowledge gathered along the way.
Now it is my desire to escalate my status as an educator to a more "one on one" experience; availing myself the opportunity to pass along that wealth of knowledge to individual students who aspire to enjoy the entertainment profession as I have, providing them with the skills needed to successfully compete. Or, should it be their choice not to pursue entertainment as a vocation, to gain a working understanding of all facets of their instrument so as to gain a better appreciation of music. Whatever the goal of the student, I feel that I am equipped to provide them with the tools needed to achieve that goal.

*** Lesson Details ***
Content of Sessions

Generally, the first 10-15 minutes of each lesson will be focused on vocal warm up and exercise. (For guitar students, we will review the previous
week's assignment). For Vocal Students, it is understood that the voice mechanism is made up of muscles, and as an athlete prepares for a sporting event, a singer must prepare to vocalize. It is at this time in our lesson when the student will develop good habits of voice maintenance, which will serve them well throughout their careers. The proper care and preservation of the vocal unit cannot be stressed enough, especially for pubescent and pre-pubescent students. Vocal chords in a developmental stage are most susceptible to damage, and because they are particularly sensitive, they must be handled with care. Our warm up regimen is designed to strengthen as well as preserve the singing voice.

I am not an advocate of getting too involved and "bogged down" in the technical aspects of singing, especially with the young students, and
especially early in our program. This is not to say that breath control, tonality, pitch, etc. are not vital to good singing, because these workings are ESSENTIAL, and their application will certainly be incorporated into our studies. Some instructors, on occasion, have a tendency to lose sight of the fact that much to do with singing happens "naturally", and too much focus on the "technical" can actually be inhibiting. This can alter a beautiful, natural tone into one that is unnatural and contrived.

I adhere to the philosophy that above all else, SINGERS WANT TO SING SONGS, and musicians-in-training want to play music. That is our focus, and all of our training is conceived with that objective in mind. All the technical knowledge and coaching serves no purpose without practical application. It is my belief that the most significant progress occurs when a vocalist is singing a song.

Nearly every element of instruction can be utilized in the performance of one song. This is why the majority of our session time will be spent "in song". For the very young student, we will concentrate our efforts with the students choices of favorite and familiar songs. The older students will undoubtedly have favorite songs, styles and artists. Special attention will be paid to the genre most enjoyed by the student, but diversity will be emphasized as well, and a variety of genres will be unpacked and explored. I believe that whatever a student's musical goals and aspirations, it is in their best interest to gain knowledge and insight in all facets of music, singing, and performance.

The most vital pre-requisite for any student is their enthusiasm. My ambition will be to harness that enthusiasm and channel it productively through stimulating instruction. Our sessions will be informative and educational, but always predicated upon "having fun with music".

I am proud to feature a curriculum that emphasizes the entertainment aspect of singing as well as the technical; created to benefit all ages and experience levels, from beginner to seasoned professional. After just weeks of my "Triple Threat Training" a student will begin to see astounding results: vocally, musically, and in the art of performance. I am excited to share my knowledge with you. Let's get started!

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is equipped with a full vocal sound system with microphones that I utilize to teach the valuable art of mic technique. Young students enjoy using the mics and hearing themselves sing and perform. Since our lessons are predicated on enjoying the art of singing, this opportunity has proven invaluable. For the advanced performer, studying all aspects of amplification and what a singer should know about their stage sound is a part of our educational curriculum. My studio is furnished with the equipment that is essential to mastering that knowledge.
Since the practical aspect of my course is based on singing songs, I provide all the latest technology required to allow my students the opportunity to sing the songs of their choosing, with and without the lead vocal tracks. I feel that when students are singing their favorite songs, it offers me the greatest teaching opportunities. I make certain the every musical genre can be represented, and feel I have the knowledge and ability to guide the student is whatever their musical tastes. My studio is also equipped with piano (for vocal exercises), and guitars, which gives me opportunity to accompany my students when the musical moment is appropriate. Be assured that all the technology I need to fulfill the educational needs of my students is but a step away!!

Glenn is a fantastic instructor. I was a beginner to acting, but I've really wanted to learn more about the craft for a long time. Glenn broke down the fundamentals of reading, character development, and script analysis to help make a more believable performance. Now we're getting into blocking and developing the physical aspects of a character. I'm learning a great deal and Glenn's patience and encouragement make him the ideal instructor to learn and grow. Highly recommend!

NOW is the time to take your playing to the Next Level. I can help you play your favorite songs on guitar!

I have been performing all over the OC and LA as well as recording music since the age of 14! Being that I am a younger teacher I can connect more with my younger students on a more personal level as well as posses an open mind with a willingness to better myself as a musician.

I strive to make each lesson exciting and personable, which is something that you wouldn't find in trying to teach yourself by looking up information independently online.

About Michael
Hello! I am currently a student at Cal State Fullerton and also a musician with performing and recording experience since the age of 14.

I have played in restaurants, weddings, bars and other venues all around Orange County and LA as a lead guitarist, rhythm guitarist, and bassist. The music that I specialize in playing are mostly acoustic, Pop, alternative rock, R&B, and hard rock. I like to song write and record my own music as well and therefore have acquired a strong attention to detail and solid work ethic to achieve my desired results.

I believe in creating a positive and exciting work environment where we can have you develop at your own pace in an effective and productive way. A great teacher is one that customizes their lesson to fit the student's individual needs while making the lesson effectively educational and creativ
ely fun!

Being that I am one of the younger guitar teachers out there, I am able to better relate to younger students on a more personal level and possess an energetic teaching style and willingness to better myself as a teacher and musician just as much as my student.

I’ve been playing guitar for 24 years, have played in many bands across a wide range of genres. I aim for my students to be versatile and well-rounded, able to pick, strum, tap, bend, squeal, sweep, read, write, shred, improvise, etc.
If you’re a beginner and don’t know where to start, I’ll guide you step by step through the enigma of the fretboard while ensuring solid technique, theory, and application.
If you’re a seasoned player that just needs to dust off your chops or learn some new tricks for your repertoire, I can help there too.

About Stephen
Why should you take lessons from me?
Well, I started teaching myself piano at age 5. Started playing drums at 10. Went into school band at 11 and played tenor sax in concert and marching band. I picked up guitar at 12 and started my own gigging band and joined the school jazz band. That was the same year I got my first multi-track cassette recorder and have been producing demos and albums ever since. Over the years I've never stopped learning new instruments (just added banjo, flute, and ukulele), never stopped composing, and have gigged with 14+ bands across genres from alt/grunge, rock, to progressive metal, to funk/r&b, reggae, hip hop, industrial/electronic, etc...

Though I didn't attend an expensive university for music like many teachers, earning a BA in game Art/Design gives me a broader expertise from which to draw and a unique
perspective when it comes to music education. I've even been able to integrate my game design experience into my lesson plans with tailor-made Virtual Reality experiences! I think, "why shouldn't you take lessons from me?" would be a much more difficult question to answer.

I help students learn basic chords and strumming patterns, learn to sing while playing, understand how to read notes, tabs and chord charts, understand power chords and basic music theory, play popular songs of the past or present, learn basic scales and improvisation skills, and even write their own songs! You can search my music on Spotify or iTunes for a sample of my style. My album is called "Songs from Pablo's Attic."

Peter is an excellent one-on-one teacher for Italian. Based on his background, I'm not surprised to find him very knowledgable about the language as it is currently spoken. In our sessions, he often explains the nuances of words and phrases based on usage, is careful to guide correct pronunciation and adds in multiple phrases of common speech. He has assembled a workbook that is well-organized and clear; we have progressed through it week by week and it has a nice feel of building a usable knowledge of key verbs, words and phrases. Peter is great at teaching and sharing what he knows, and on top of all of this he is flexible to the student's pace, needs and interests. We paused in our progress through the workbook to focus on specific topics like directions, clothing, colors, food, the urban setting, etc. Weekly he sends me sentences via a Google doc and I work and them and send my translations into Italian back--works great! I am excited to have Peter as my teacher and I think you will be, too. I plan on working with him through the course and beyond. Grazie mille, Peter!

I teach all genres of guitar ranging from rock, pop, alternative, jazz, acoustic, and acoustic finger style. I have 12 years of extensive study in guitar, music theory, with a focus in jazz guitar. I have performed in several different bands including lead guitarist for 4 consecutive years in high school jazz band. I am able to teach whatever students desire to learn. Every lesson is recorded on audio and given to the student for future reference and record. I'm excited to be accepting new students and can't wait to meet you!

About Nathan
I am a 23 year old musician. I have studied guitar for 12 years. 8 of those years were spent studying under the instruction of Mike Smith who graduated from the U of U in jazz guitar. 1 year was also spent studying specifically jazz guitar under the instruction of Ben Mathews, an adjunct professor at Utah State University. I have also played in several bands and enjoy writing my own music on a daily basis.

I have played all genres and style of guitar, but specialize in acoustic finger style (such as the music played by Tommy Emmanuel), as well as jazz guitar. I love rock, pop, alternative, and jazz. These are the genres I spend the most time with.

Most of all I have a passion for playing, performing, and writing music for guitar. I love every moment I get to be able to play with other people and share the knowledge and experience I
have gained playing and performing for others.

Along with guitar I have played piano since the age of 7, joined the orchestra at age 12 playing the bass, moved on to clarinet and tenor saxophone, and played as the lead jazz guitarist in the high school jazz band for 4 years. I am also formally trained in music theory. Having studied under individual instructors for over half my life I have a firm grasp of the necessary steps and skills needed to progress as a guitarist and musician. All lessons are recorded and shared with the student to keep for future use and practicing.
