Curtis L.

Sacramento, CA

About Curtis

Hello! I'm a supportive, positive and patient teacher who is passionate about helping my students. Each individual student learns differently and with my professional performance background and having studied in the world renown Guitar Institute of Technology(GIT) program at Musicians Institute, I have gained a well rounded skill set to guide my students to achieve their musical goals.

*** Lesson Details ***

I require all of my students to own their own Guitar, Instrument Cable, and Guitar Tuner. I supply most of the lesson material except for the suggested reading books that I re
commend for purchase. Of course we can go right into custom tailoring lessons and working on whatever the student wishes to work on. But, I have found through my years of teaching all levels and ages that my suggested curriculum for beginners yields great results.

Age Group 5 - 13 years old:

Suggested Reading Material: Hal Leonard Guitar Method Book 1, published by Hal Leonard.

Age Group 13 - 99 years old:

Suggested Reading Material: Music Reading for Guitar (Complete Method) published by Musicians Institute.

*** Specialties ***
Styles of music I specialize in: Blues, Rock, Funk, R&B, Soul, Top 40 & Pop

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.

Jennifer is kind, patient, and extremely talented. The lessons are in her beautiful and quiet home. She starts the lessons without wasting any time and jumps right into teaching. I wish I had found her a lot earlier and I highly recommend her for anybody who is serious about improving their voice. If you are serious and would like to find a kind, talented and professional music instructor, look no more.
