About Jonah
Learning to play the guitar is one of the most rewarding experiences you'll ever have. Whether this is your first time picking up the guitar or you've been playing for years, I'll make sure your lessons are structured and paced in a way that's specifically catered to your goals.

I've worked with dozens of students of all ages over the last seven years and seen each of them achieve major breakthroughs and discover/rekindle a passion for music.

If you're interested in getting started, I'd love to hear from you! I teach out of my studio in Culver City but am available for in-home lessons as well.

My son has been taking lessons with Jonah for almost a year, and really loves working with him. I recently decided to join in with lessons of my own to try to progress out of the guitar rut I was stuck in. Jonah is pleasure to work with. Whether you're a beginner or beyond, Jonah is a patient, capable, and engaging teacher. We recommend him highly.

Jonah is a Godsend, seriously! I couldn’t have imagined, in my wildest dreams, a better introduction to guitar. Not only is he incredibly patient and knowledgable concerning guitar, but his passion and genuine love for the teaching process is palpable. I would recommend him a billion times over to anyone looking to learn, brush up, or further shape their guitar skills!

Jonah is an incredibly patient and encouraging teacher. My friend and I take group lessons with Jonah and are at different skill levels, and Jonah is accommodating to each of us. Lessons are based around our preferences and we have both come a long way in a short time. Jonah is as good a teacher as he is a guitarist.

Based on our first lesson, I would highly recommend Becca for a teacher of young kids. She came to the class prepared, was very patient with my son, and left him wanting more and with something to work on. It was a very good experience.

About Julian
Hi! I'm Julian. While I specialize in guitar, I also know my way around keys, bass, and a drumkit. I've been teaching guitar for about 11 years, and have spent a few years teaching out of music shops. My style is adaptive and fluid to suit a wide range of desires and skill levels, but in addition to guitar technique you can expect to learn a good deal about music theory. I love teaching music more than anything and would rather do nothing else. I come from a blues/rock background and studied jazz guitar and music production at Shenandoah University. If you think we'd be suitable for one another, don't hesitate to contact me!

Julian taught our 11 year old grandson to play drums during his summer vacation with us. Though time was limited, our grandson learned a lot, had a lot of fun, and left with a desire to pursue more music lessons. Julian was patient and kind, and clearly knew a lot about how to teach music.

About April
I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music between schools, the San Diego Youth Orchestra. I currently work with several students with special needs such as Autism and other Neurological delays. My son is Autistic and music was a great way for him to express himself. I found that the other children I work with on the spectrum have more abilities to express themselves through music then with words. I also work with students that are not yet comfortable with themselves and getting them to breath and enjoy the music helps bring them out of their shells.

I regularly find myself jamming o
ut with another music instructor every chance we get. Music is a great relief and enjoyment that I want to share with as many people as I can. I am currently in college getting my Bachelors degree in History with a minor in Music.

About Sarah
I've been immersed in the crazy world of music since I was seven years old, starting piano lessons because I wanted to do better than my older sister did at them. Luckily, they stuck, and I've been playing ever since!
I began learning vocal technique as I got older and sang with the choir at church and my high school chorus. When I got to college, I auditioned and made it into an a capella group that has since gone on to compete nationally in the ICCA quarterfinals.

For both voice and piano students, I believe that in order to learn the most effectively you need to enjoy what you're doing, so I try and keep lessons as informal and fun as possible- I like to work with you, not lecture at you!
I want to find learning techniques that will work for you and let you build up a solid basework of theory and skills, and will still let you love w
hat you do.

However you learn best, my vocal students can expect to gain better control over their voice throughout their entire range, better breathing techniques, and clearer tone. My piano students will learn proper hand and finger positions, sight reading, and control over dynamics. Both will learn how to read music if they don't already- whatever area of music you end up in, it comes in handy!

About Rachel
I have been playing the piano and the trombone since childhood. Growing up in a musical family, music has always played a big part in my life. I was active in school bands in addition to taking private lessons throughout grade school. In high school I was a member of Tri-M (a musical honor society), qualified for district band through audition, and was ranked in the top 10% of trombone players in the state of Virginia. Throughout my education I developed a working knowledge of brass instruments, music theory, a variety of playing styles, and much more.

After high school, I pursued and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University, while continuing my musical career, playing in bands offered by the school as well as in the Richmond area. I am currently active with the ACCA Temple Shiners in their German band
, The Sauerkrauts, 100% of whose proceeds go to benefit children in Shriner-owned hospitals.

I have been giving private lessons since 2006, and have a deep passion for musical education. I feel learning to play an instrument enriches life in a way few other things can.

About Curtis
Teaching music is one of my many passions - I enjoy sharing and instilling a love of music in others! With ten years of teaching experience, I've taught a variety of ages (including adult learners), levels, and backgrounds. Currently I'm a doctoral student at the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music, where I'm a full scholarship piano performance student. I'm also teaching piano lessons out of Willis Music's Kenwood Galleria, where I maintain a private piano studio. I began teaching privately, but while studying at Indiana University, I worked as a faculty member of Indiana University's Young Pianist program. Besides teaching piano, I also teach music theory. Over the last three years, I worked as an Associate Instructor of Music Theory at Indiana University where I taught and assisted in undergraduate music theory cou
rses. My students ranged from complete beginners to honors students. I recently graduated from Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music with a master's degree in Piano Performance and Early Music Harpsichord. I also received my bachelor's degree from IU, graduating with Highest Honors. Please contact me with any questions you may have regarding my studio.

About Anthony
I was born in Port Jefferson, New York in April of 1988 and received my first toy guitar when I was two years old. After subsequent years of piqued interest in anything that made sound, I moved to my uncle's house in Florida where I took informal piano lessons from a cousin at age 8. I found my musical voice when taking up the alto saxophone in middle school band at age 12, teaching myself to play and write along the way. In high school I began taking saxophone lessons with a local college student, and proceeded to participate in several County- and State-wide ensembles. My academic background now includes study with Dr. George Weremchuk, Robert Thornton, Richard Drexler & Jeff Rupert at UCF and then with Neal Bonsanti & Mike Brignola at FAU, graduating on scholarship with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music in 2011. I received my graduate degre
e in Music Composition in 2016, providing graduate teaching assistantship at USF under direction of Chuck Owen and Jack Wilkins.

I have performed locally alongside such amazing artists as Lou Donaldson, Rufus Reid, Steve Houghton, Maria Schneider, Diane Schuur, Kevin Mahogany, Ricardo Pons, Donny McCaslin, Charlie Young, Dolores King Williams, Bob Marley's Original Wailers, Ingrid Jensen, Donny McCaslin and Wayne Bergeron, and frequent as a sideman in local bands and jam sessions. I have been featured with numerous Big Bands across Florida, including the UCF, FAU & USF Big Bands, the Smithsonian Jazz Orchestra, the "Jazz Ratz", the Bobby Rodriguez Orchestra, the Jazz Legacy Big Band, Jerry Fischer Big Band, Jack Martino group & the Wally Schneider Big Band. Over the last 10 years I have toured the east coast of the United States with various groups of contrasting styles. My 15 year teaching experience includes a wide range of music styles, settings, age groups, and levels of musicianship, focusing on the elements of Music that are universal to all instruments, cultures and genres.

I now reside in Richmond, Virginia pursuing a Master of Music Education at VCU, and continue to expand my creative abilities through such related fields as production, arranging, poetry, songwriting, education and the important impact of a healthy lifestyle.
