Curtis L.

Sacramento, CA

About Curtis

Hello there! I'm a friendly and patient teacher who understands the frustrations that can occur when learning the guitar. Each individual student learns differently and having studied in the Guitar Institute of Technology program at Musicians Institute has given me a well rounded perspective on how to help my students overcome problems from many different angles. I first started out teaching only a handful of students on guitar in 2009. Since then my student base has grown and the art of sharing my knowledge of music has become a passion of mines. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and l
evels!

Growing up, I have always had a passion for music. I was listening to Pop, Top 40, Rock, Metal, Blues, Jazz and everything in-between. However, I didn't start playing the guitar or studying music until I was 21 years of age. This presented some challenges as most professional musicians start much earlier. But through determination and having great teachers guide me, the age old saying of "It is never too late", resonates loudly in my life.

I was self taught for the first year of playing the guitar. I ran into many problems and picked up bad habits. I noticed my growth as a musician had hit a plateau. I then decided to get serious and take lessons from professional teachers. I spent one year studying with Kurt Shiflet and three years with Musicians Institute alumni Scott Allen. After the four years of private lessons in Sacramento, I decided to study in Los Angeles attending Musicians Institute(G.I.T). After the two years, I graduated from the G.I.T program with a certificate in Guitar Performance. During my time at the Musicians Institute, I was instructed by Keith Wyatt, Greg Harrison and Daniel Gilbert (just to name a few). Having been instructed by these great musicians has proven to be invaluable in my career. Allow me to share the wisdom bestowed upon me from my great teachers to you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to develop a customized lesson plan for each of my student's specific goals in music. We can work on specific areas that the student wishes to work on such as: Reading standard notation on the Guitar, Guitar Tablature, Theory and Ear Training, Songs and Guitar Soloing. I can also create a customized well rounded curriculum that is similar to what I went through at music school. Anything music related we can work on, nothing is off limits in our private lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Boss E-Band Js10 and Fender Guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
Boss E-band Js10 and Fender Guitar. For my electric guitar students I expect them to have their own electric guitar, guitar tuner, instrument cable and a amplifier. Acoustic students I only require they own a tuner and guitar.

*** Specialties ***
Blues, Rock, Funk & Pop styles on electric guitar, Music Theory, Beginner to Intermediate Acoustic Guitar.

Curtis has been an excellent teacher in helping me start playing the guitar, with no prior experience. He is always in tune with the kind of goals I want to meet with my instrument while giving me useful exercises and tips to improve my skills. Would highly recommend him to other students looking to pick up the guitar or wanting to improve on your current skills.

Javier A.

Sacramento, CA

About Javier

My name is Javier and I love to teach !

I am originally from Guanajuato, Mexico and in my last year of high school, I decided to take private piano lessons with a local teacher and it was during this time period that I learned classical pieces by Beethoven and Mozart. I also took music notation and I tried a hand at composing, discovering a new way to communicate in terms of music.

After moving to the USA, I resume my music education, learning new concepts on classical, blues and pop styles, as well as chord progression and accompaniment pieces. After a year and after completing the teac
her training program, I started to teach piano from my home studio.

During this time, I took upon myself two more years of intense composition study and experimenting with some of the secrets of this art, which now has become one of my passion. In 2007 I earned a diploma from this institution and in the same year I released two CDs of my own compositions: Van Gogh Sunflower's and Dimes y Diretes.

This year I have enrolled in a music program at the Music Conservatory of San Francisco, where I am expecting to learn and expand my knowledge on technique, performing, and music ensembles.

For six years, I have been teaching successfully from my home studio, teaching students of all ages and with different music backgrounds.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach piano and I specialize in classical and contemporary music styles

I am a strong believer of traditional teaching methods, however, I have learn that we all learn in different ways, so I let my students discover music by teaching them how to relate to the piano first, after they become familiar with the instrument by playing easy but wonderful melodies I start with the process of teaching music notation, scales, chords, analyzing songs, music history, exercises.

I teach all ages, I am very patient and supportive, never pushy but firm with my students goals.

Loren R.

Elk Grove, CA

About Loren

Loren is a well-known music instructor and has been teaching private music lessons in the Elk Grove area since 2002. He has been teaching for years and years, has two music degrees and is an active performer in many styles, enjoying a steady gigging schedule in the Sacramento area. He's "the real deal."

*** Lesson Details ***
The lessons are of the highest quality available as the student learns to read music, is guided in music theory with ear training, technique, and performance, however performance remains optional. There are options.

We often begin with songs that the student alre
ady likes. Sometimes that's the ticket. From Bach to the Beatles, Taylor Swift to Bob Dylan, there are always great entrance points.

Theory, (chords, intervals, scales, cadences, etc.) Reading music, (tabs, traditional music notation, charts), Technique, (right and left hand patterns), it's all covered. It's fun and legitimate education.

*** Specialties ***
Lessons in piano or guitar cover all popular music styles including country, rock, and classical.
