About Raymond (Remi)
I completed musical studies at the Conservatory of Music of San Juan, Puerto Rico and graduated MAGNA CUM LAUDE, with Majors in Musical Education and as a Performing Artist. I am a qualified multilingual Music Instructor. I have performed as a guitarist with several orchestras, musical groups, bands and as classical guitar soloist I have given numerous recitals and concerts. I have worked as a Music Educator at the Social & Pedagogic Academic Institutes teaching pedagogic & didactic principles to teachers and at the same time I have been teaching classical and popular guitar at all levels and ages at several other music schools. I wrote two guitar methods "MELODIC GUITAR" for beginners from 7 years of age and up, which has been translated from Papiamentu into the English and Spanish languages and "MELODIC GUITAR 2" which has been tr
anslated from Papiamentu into English. Although my music background is classical, I play and teach popular music, which I appreciate. Just to mention a few famous guitarists who's styles appeal to me: Carlos Santana, George Benson, Paco de Lucia, Julian Bream. I also teach electrical and acoustic guitar, bass-guitar, piano/keyboard, ukulele, Venezuelan & PR cuatro, songwriting and music theory. Music is an International language; a way to express inner feelings! And Teaching it, is my passion!

He style of teaching is both technical and creative to keep you entratain while you are developing the necessary skills to become a better musician. Simply a Master
I find ukulele to often work better than guitar for many young students (typically years 10 and younger). When appropriate, the student can transition to guitar having increased hand strength and learned many of the concepts needed to excel. Of course, ukulele makes for a fun (and ultra-portable) instrument in its own right!
I studied classical guitar and composition at Asbury College and later more in depth guitar studies rock, jazz, and classical at the Atlanta Institute of Music. I have been teaching steadily for the past ten years as well as spending my time with various other musical projects such as leading worship for my church, performing for various parties and weddings, and composing and recording music for a short film. I use my experience and broad understanding of music to inform the way that I teach, so that my students have a robust experience of all aspects of music.
*** Lesson Details *** I have a lesson plan that I follow for beginning students to get them through the basics. As a teacher I am laid back, and positive, but always try to give the student a clear reflection of how they are progressing. I find that some students thrive with
a lot of structure and others prefer a looser approach and I am quite comfortable teaching both ways. If the student maintains a consistent practice regimen, they should be able to play songs from the radio within 3 or 4 months.
*** Studio Equipment *** Lessons in the living room with an amp, keyboard, computer, desk, parents can sit on couch in a separate room
*** Travel Equipment *** I expect my student to provide their instrument (including amp if necessary) and any instructional materials required.
*** Specialties *** I have had a lot of experience teaching beginning and intermediate students with method books, and have used them to teach reading, theory, technique, and repertoire. Most often, I take a slightly looser approach which I feel allows me to mold my teaching to fit the individual student's needs
We went over a lot of stuff. Im a cellist who has had bass lessons but was getting difficult for the simple reason that it wasnt methodical in any way. My goel is to transition to upright and Wes has enough musical knowledge to prepare toward that goel.
I am an avowed uke aficionado, and believe this little instrument has way more potential than most people give it credit for. It works wonderfully for providing basic chords to accompany songs. For the more ambitious and/or adventures uke players out there, it can also yield amazing results as a melody instrument. Jazz, classical, world music and pop are all great on the uke. I love to help you do whatever you are looking to do with your uke.
I majored in music at Berea College, then went on to The University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where I completed a Masters degree in guitar performance and served as the graduate assistant to the guitar department.
For the past ten years I have earned a living performing and teaching guitar. I am a certified Suzuki instructor, and I've held teaching positions at Winston Salem State University and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, along with at least half a dozen other schools and institutions. I've been featured on other artists' records, and received a grant to release an album of my own songs. I regularly perform in a wide variety of bands and ensembles.
I love to teach, and over the years I have taught hundreds, maybe even thousands of lessons. Having learned something from each and every one
of my students, I am now at a point where I excel at honing in on the individual interests and learning styles of whoever comes to me for help. There are many ways to learn guitar. The best one is the one that engages and inspires you the most. That said, there are also music fundamentals that we all need to know. My joy as a teacher lies in finding a way for you to master the fundamentals while at the same time following your personal bliss and intuition. We plot the course together, combining your curiosity and enthusiasm with my years of experience.
I also love working with kids. While they are having fun jamming, I discretely provide them with the technique and musicianship they'll need to excel in any musical environment, whether it's conservatory study or playing in a great band.
*** Lesson Details *** Your enthusiasm is the key to your success, so my lessons are tailored to the interests and abilities of each student. That said, my classical background and dedication to effective teaching inform everything I do.
All of my students learn Music Fundamentals: -Technique (habits of movement) -Theory (how music works) -Aural skills (hearing pitches, chords and rhythms clearly)
Many of my students use books. There are hundreds of great books these days, and I will work with students from any book they choose. Listed here are the books I regularly use. They all deliver great results:
-Aaron Shearer "Leaning The Classic Guitar" -Will Schmidt and Greg Koch "The Hal Leonard Method" -Joe Pecoraro "Read This First" -David Oaks "Music Reading For Guitar" -William Leavitt "A Modern Method For Guitar" -Mateo Carcassi "Melodic and Progressive Studies, Opus 60" -Leo Brouwer "Simple Studies"
Many of my students prefer to work without a book, and that is a great option too. These students learn scales, chords and theory and develop a repertoire of songs. I will show you how to play any song you'd like to learn. You can also work on writing your own songs or compositions, or improvising in any context, be it jazz, blues, Indian raga or flamenco.
Singing is also encouraged!
*** Studio Equipment *** Home studio: music stands, extensive library of all kinds of music, great sound system and ability to stream any song, several guitars, recording equipment, footstools, keyboard and percussion instruments.
*** Travel Equipment *** I'll bring my guitar and books, accessories as needed.
*** Specialties *** I specialize in versatility. I regularly play gigs doing classical, jazz, blues, rock, pop, and world music. All of these genres have a place in my heart, and I've devoted years to learning to play and teach them well.
I am equally polyamorous when it comes to the various things musicians do. I love to sing pop songs, dissect jazz lines, delve into expressive groupings with classical pieces, drill scales and arpeggios, you name it. Reading, improvising, composing and notating, transcribing and playing by ear, memorization, classical technique, blues technique, bluegrass technique, theoretical analysis... hit me up for any of that, or whatever else interests you.
I have been Ukulele for over 10 years! My teaching methods help students achieve success because I adjust to each student's needs and abilities individually to create a great experience. I couple traditional teaching with performances offer professional student shows and concerts throughout the year to help enrich the experience! We learn to play many different types of music in different styles keeping the experience new and fun!
Hello, My name is Michael and Im excited to meet you! I've been teaching private & Professional lessons since 1997! I love helping students accomplish their goals like, getting into college, hit auditions, and more, but above all I love to inspire the love of Music and Performance Arts!
Throughout my professional career I have toured and played with bands such as Soul Fire, 3 Door Down, and others, and have performed for companies such as 4 County Players in Virginia, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, and Carolina Players in NC. I play multiple instruments from woodwinds, brass, to guitar, mandolin, violin and have training in singing and vocal training and more!
I use a number of established teaching methods to instruct my studies as well as my own methods that I have perfected through my 18+ years of teaching. My philosophy is that
it is important to stay fluid and adjust to each student's learning style to create successful students at any age from 3 to 100!
My only goal is to help you reach yours!
-==Some of My Studio Equipment=-- Marshall, Crate, & Fender Amps Williams and Yamaha Digital Pianos Woodwind instruments Violins of all sizes Brass Instruments Acoustic and Electric Guitars (Fender, Epiphone, Breedlove, etc..) Computer and Multimedia Supplemental material And others!
--=Materials Used=-- I teach Suzuki Method when appropriate, as well as popular scholastic methods when needed for a school band program however, I mostly teach to the student. Each student gets a unique and personalized experience tailored to their specific goals and needs using a variety of available materials, but above all I strive to teach fun when learning the arts!
I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!
September 12, 2016
With his flexibility and willingness to accommodate us my daughter learned a lot from him. He was a wonderful teacher and a great person to do business with.
September 12, 2016
Michael is very energetic and passionate about music. My kids have really enjoyed their time with him and we would recommend him to anyone!
Beginning: Learn ukulele fundamentals, basics chords, and play your favorite songs!
Intermediate students: Learn your favorite songs and learn how to write your own songs
MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY My approach is compassionate, nurturing, and collaborative. My teaching style is structured but leaves room for fun. I believe that a student new to their instrument will thrive when they: - have a parent involved in their practice in-between lessons (parents observing the lesson is highly recommended) - have fun while learning proper technique to avoid harmful habits down the road - choose songs that are interesting to them while the teacher picks songs that will help them grow - are given foundational tools and approaches to further lifelong learning as they get older
ABOUT ME I’ve been playing professionally as a pianist/keyboardist for 15 years and teaching for just as long. I have a B.A. in Music from Cal Poly Pomona. I also write, sing, record, and produce my own songs on piano and ukulele. People th
at work with me say that I’m highly qualified, reliable, and punctual.
If you would like to learn how to be able to easily switch between chords, comfortably keep time, and learn various rhythmic strumming and/or picking styles, I can help! I can also help you learn how to play and sing at the same time if you're interested! Whether you'd like to be able to quickly pick up new songs for yourself, or be able to easily jump into a jam session, I am confident I can aid you in achieving your goals!
My name is Liana, and I am a freelance musician (specializing in double bass) and music instructor working in the Greater Los Angeles Area. I have been playing music for nearly my entire life, starting on piano at the age of five and moving on to learn other instruments as the years progressed. I have performed with various orchestras (including studio recording groups), chamber groups, musical theater pit ensembles, jazz big bands and combos, and more.
I have served as principal bassist with the CSUN Symphony and the Dragon Singers Orchestra, and as substitute principal bassist of the Westlake Village Symphony. I have also performed with the band Noble Creatures on ukulele; Tenth Muse on double bass, vocals, and ukulele; as a founding member of the band Polyhymnia on electric bass; the CSUN Jazz "C" Band on double bass; and the Jazzs
chool Studio Band on double and electric bass.
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I studied double bass under Pat Klobas and Karen Zimmerman. My further double bass studies continued in Los Angeles under Oscar Meza and Dr. Gary Pratt. I received my B.A. in Music Breadth Studies from California State University, Northridge in 2016.
All lessons are incredibly flexible and are tailored to each student's needs, abilities, and goals. Do you have a book you've already been working from and want to continue with? Great! Do you not like working from a book at all? Also great! I am by no means strict, but together we will work hard to you craft your technique to maximize your potential!
PLEASE NOTE: I do unfortunately deal with chronic abdominal pain that has its ups and downs, so there are times that I will need to reschedule and/or cancel lessons with relatively short notice. If you are looking for strict consistency, I may not be the teacher for you; however, if you are willing and able to be flexible, I can be just as flexible as you are.
I look forward to the possibility of meeting and working with you!
Learn some fun songs on this great sounding instrument! We might even sing a few together
I am a jazz guitarist based out of beautiful Los Angeles, California. I received and Associate of Arts degree in Music in 2015, and have been pursuing a bachelors in Jazz Studies since then.
While in community college I really grew into my own as a musician and discovered that I love jazz and the language of bebop. Not only the music, but the history of how it formed as well as the differences from classical music. When at school I stood out from the other guitarists because I was hungry to learn and that attitude will hopefully follow me for the rest of my life.
Thats what I'd hope to pass on the students; that knowledge, be it music, english, math, physiology, etc. is the key to everything. And that it doesn't have to be all stuffy and boring! I tailor my lessons to the student whether its guitar, piano, ukulele, etc. and my main
objective is to learn and have fun, so the learning is reinforced with good natured thoughts. This will set up the student to actually want to practice!
As a musician I've been in a couple of groups, and lately I have been concentrating on my students as well as continuing school in 2020. I also try to utilize the computer to produce when possible so I can learn about that aspect of music. My passion is improvisation/composition, because I hope to one day leave songs behind that people can play forever and be influenced by them like so many have influenced me.
I teach uke to beginners. My background specialty is in piano, and secondary for string instruments. Whatever your goals are I will take them personally and help you grow and work towards them.
Lessons are tailored to the students' level and goal. Caring and compassionate instructor. Your dream is my dream and I will diligently work with you to help you on your path. If you have the will to learn and practice, you will see improvements and achievements. I've been teaching music to children and adults for about 20 years both privately and at teaching studios. I have played as a substitute church pianist, ballet accompanist, and have spent the last four years playing for a variety of private and corporate events and weddings.
