He also taught beginning to advanced guitar/ vocals/ performance and songwriting as hosted a recording clinic at the end of each day.

Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason has been transcribing for guitar and bass since the age of 18 and since then has become a master of the craft including both 5 line staff and tablature, hand-crafted exercises and deconstructions to better enhance the students learning.

Jason attended the University of Alaska, Anchorage where his degree is in Music and Business. He is constantly continuing his education with music theory courses as well as private guitar instruction. He attends guitar workshops and seminars by artists such as John5 and Kerry King who are known as some of the worlds finest guitar players. He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

I am so lucky have Jason as my daughter's electric guitar teacher. He is very professional, he knows what to teach and how to teach my daughter based on her level. My daughter really learned a lot from the first 5 lessons that she just completed. Of course I will sign her up to continue with Jason. Jason is also a very nice teacher. He never mind to teach extra time if he finds my daughter is still with passion to the music of the class, and Jason even lend his own guitar to my daughter for her jazz band audition. Thank you so much Jason!

Jason was great! He engaged my son (11 yrs old) immediately and took him through a fun, introductory lesson (and even went over time)! We are definitely planning to continue with Jason.

About Gilbert

I have worked for many Colleges and Kids Sports organizations. I have been background checked many times. I also teach kids of many ages at The Arbor Learning Center home schooling group.

Mr. M. is a CG artist. Like many, his love for art started in grade school and evolved in high school. While running his own T-Shirt Design company, "Extreme Limitations", he was able to quickly see the power of design, layout, color, and typography.

ing students in many different graphic disciplines. He has been at Norco College since 2006 teaching 3D Modeling, Animation, Beginning and Advanced Photoshop, Illustrator, Digital Sculpting and Character Design. He has also taught 3D Modeling, Animation, Drawing, Motion Graphics, and Video Editing at Coastline Community College, and Cypress College, Santa Ana and is now teaching 3D Modeling at Mt. SAC.

In his free time, Mr. M. freelances for companies helping production schedules that are running behind. In 2009, Gilbert won an Emmy.

This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!

Tanna M.

Hacienda Heights, CA

About Tanna

HI there! My name is Tanna and I am professional photographer with an emphasis on children and pets. Maybe you just got a new "big" camera for your birthday and can't wait to take some professional photos but you have no idea where to start! You tried taking photos of your kids and your dog but they just come out dark, blurry, or out of focus. I can help you with that!
Many of my friends went to college and graduated with a BA in photography. They learned some great art history lessons but still couldn't use their own camera. I decided to enroll at a photography trade school instead, and
after many years of experience with my own camera, I was able to open a growing photography business.
I can teach you how to use your DSLR (digital) camera to capture those special moments, without having to learn advanced dark room techniques. I can also teach you the simplest way to use Photoshop to edit your photos to perfection.

Had a wonderful lesson with Tanna. My daughter is 14 and just got a new camera for her birthday. Tanna explained how to operate all the different functions to her. She was very patient with her. Tanna is a "must" if you have a new camera.

Tyrone S.

Pomona, CA

About Tyrone

My name is Tyrone and growing up, I was never good at a lot of things. However, one day, I asked my father to teach me how to play basketball and within a couple of days, I was one of the best basketball players in my neighborhood. This taught me that as long as I worked hard and practiced at something, I could be good at it. This is how I learned to be proficient in many different talents.

Here are the skills that I've learned over the years and am willing to teach you if you wish to learn them:

* Photography Lessons: You will learn about how cameras work, various lighting technique
s to get the perfect shot, themed photo shoots, event photography, portrait photography, studio vs. on location photography, etc.

* Basketball Lessons: You will learn the fundamentals of how to play basketball, as well as skills that help you become a skillful basketball athlete such as dribbling, shooting, passing, defense and fitness.

* Rap Music Lessons: You will learn the writing skills of a rap artist, which will include poetry techniques, knowledge of hip hop music and history, various terms regarding the structure of a rap song, as well as how to perform a rap song, either on stage or in a studio.

* Magic Lessons: You will learn various techniques on how to perform magic tricks and most importantly, how to create your own. I specialize in card magic, but can also teach you other skills with more items.

* Poetry Lessons: You will learn how to write poetry using various poetry techniques and studying some of the most well known poets in history. You will also learn how to perform these poems and the rhythm in which way would be best to deliver your overall poetic message.
