About Carolyn

Coming from a large extended family in Hawaii, I was surrounded by luau music, kachi-kachi dancing, Japanese bon dances, handsome local guys singing and playing their guitars and my aunties strumming their ukes and singing old songs. I reveled in walking alone in Nature or playing piano and singing in empty, stained-glassed churches - just wailing in the dark and colored light!

I studied: piano, organ, oboe, clarinet, violin, voice, and guitar. I started as a teenager to make a small living playing for various churches, choirs, weddings, and funerals. As a young adult, I sang in jazz trios and pop bands, and continued playing as a church organist/choir accompanist, and began teaching private piano lessons to students of all ages.

Upon arriving in New York City, I entered into a journey of playing at a Washington Heights gospel chur

ch, living in a building filled with musicians, studying Sanskrit and mantra chanting, and sound and light healing. And, I sang! And wrote my own songs.

By blending traditional teaching methods and everything I've learned, I create meaningful experiences for students by:
- being patient, flexible, and creative in approach
- using visual, aural, and tactile teaching tools

*** Lesson Goals ***
After 3 to 6 Months of Lessons, you can use the important music fundamentals you've learned to create music you love.
After about a year, you are able to share your music with your family and friends - and maybe even perform as a service to your community!

*** My Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano, synthesizers, guitars, ukulele, percussion instruments, cool learning tools and charts

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can carry my own guitar, ukulele, teaching aids, manuscript paper, pen/pencils, and handouts.

*** My Specialties ***
Playing instruments thoughtfully, with feel, especially with vocals.
Taking basic techniques & music theory to expand, create one's vision.
Creating music to nourishes the body and soul.
Making lesson times fun and meaningful.
Singing from an unguarded voice - to be as authentic as possible.

Carolyn is great! She brings an amazing chill energy and makes it feel more like time hanging out with a friend than a lesson. Definitely recommend her, I think kids would love her as well.

First lesson with Carolyn in the books! She is a wonderful teacher - positive, encouraging and while thoughtful with her lesson plan, is happy to take the lesson in a direction of your choosing!

Very much looking forward to my future lessons with her!

Carolyn is terrific! I decided to finally learn to play the piano and learn music theory at 50! I am having an incredible learning experience with Carolyn. She is patient and is always one step ahead anticipating my challenges and helping me learn and improve.

About Damien

Orlando-based composer and guitarist Damien has made a name for himself as a writer of scores for film, theater and dance productions.;A graduate of Music Composition at SUNY Purchase (New York) and Musicology at the University College of Dublin (Ireland). Years of touring internationally and score writing has given Damien the experience and work ethic to share his musical knowledge and abilities with others.

*** Lesson Details ***
Damien is a very patient and moderately, laid back teacher. He will teach what you want to learn, yet give you suggestions on other avenues to approach. Basics lead to complete knowledge of any subject. S

tarting from the beginning of what a student knows and moving forward step by step will only lead to perfection in their lessons. Having fun doing this, is the only way to keep a student focused and progressing. Enjoyment is the number one focus of Damien's lessons. If a student isn't enjoying and having fun with their lessons then they will not progress.
Damien teaches ages of 5-99. You are never too young or old to learn. Damien's main focus is guitar and music theory

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect the student to provide their own guitar (if necessary) and a notebook
I have private parking for my students, so they don't have to worry about parking, ever !
*** Specialties ***
I have been taught, on a college level, of classical, jazz, ethnic musics. I specialize in guitar, theory, composition.

All levels, variety of styles

About David

After graduating from Salford University, England with a Bachelors degree (Honors) in Music and Composing I worked for a short time as a commercial "jingle" writer, before moving to San Diego, marrying my dream girl, and opening my own music recording, teaching and production studio. From there I have been teaching lessons, recording bands and writing music for independent film ad video games for the last 6 years. Throughout this time I've been continually performing live in venues all over California.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach both from a privately rented studio in Santee and from my home studio in La Mesa. Both are fully equipped for guitar, bass and drum lessons and even have recording facilities! In my lesson plans I try to combine theory and technique with practical application (that is, playing music and rocking out!).

A typical lesson begins with a warm up and review of last weeks' lesson, and then moves to a new concept or technique. Once this new idea is understood, we give it a practical application by using it a song the student is familiar with. We finish up by setting some homework and answering any questions the student my have.

My lessons are structured and goal orientated (I want my students playing songs they love as soon as possible to keep the inspiration and excitement going!) but I adapt each lesson plan to suit the student, accommodating different musical tastes and learning styles. Most important I keep the lessons fun and engaging - it's the best way to learn!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Fulling equipped, professional teaching studio.
Guitars, drums, amps, PAs, Pianos, Mandolins and much more!

*** Specialties ***
Very versatile both in preferred styles and my ability to adapt to students requests. Can cover anything from jazz to metal, or pop to blues, on guitar, bass or drums.

So far so good. Very patient as mistakes after mistake was made. Corrected quite a few mistakes I was making so that my habits would be good habits from the start. Let me talk to myself as I messed up and complimented me when I was on the right track.

complete novice; adult student. First lesson very relaxed. Excellent blend through-out lesson of questions and information my goals and background as well as instructor's goals for me and his background. First "technical" part of lesson was manageable and care taken by Lyle to make sure I understood what was being presented. I left the first lesson feeling this would be a good fit between instructor and student

When I was growing up, we all learned ukulele in Elementary school - when Uke started making its resurgence these last couple of years, I was quick to jump in and start teaching this super-fun, portable, "easy to get started" instrument! Play songs, accompany yourself singing - be the life of every party!

About Julia

I'm a passionate professional vocalist and a fourth generation music educator. With 20+ years of professional performing, coaching and teaching experience under my belt, my vocal teaching method unites my classical and musical theatre educational background with the techniques I have developed for singing Jazz, Rock, R&B, Country, etc believably, beautifully, and above all, safely!

In expanding my teaching practice to include piano and ukulele, I emphasize rhythm and musicality alongside technique and note reading. I always set myself the goal of learning what makes a musician sound "right," and not just "good" in a particular genre. This versatility has made me extremely employable as an artist, and, I think, uniquely qualified to teach. I believe that students will work harder on music that moves them, and I always encourage students

to suggest songs that they care about. Good technique(s) can be applied to any repertoire!

Note: I believe that regular weekly lessons are essential to establishing good habits and making progress. As a result, I can only accept students who are interested in taking a lesson each week. Requests for biweekly lessons will regretfully be denied. Thanks!

Julia is an amazing piano teacher who is always more than accommodating with her schedule. I love the way she teaches and she always uses great analogies to help me understand the lesson better. I am an adult who has never played piano and she has really made the learning experience fun for me. I look forward to continuing my lessons with her. Highly recommend!!

Learn to play ukulele well. I apply the Pepe Romero Method of Spanish classical and flamenco guitar to the ukulele. I've studied with my father-in-law, Pepe Romero, for over 30 years and I am the teacher of the 4th generation of Romeos. My son Bernard is a world-class guitar maker and my brother-in-law, Pepe Romero Jr., makes some of the best ukuleles in the world. Search Pepe Romero Method and Greg Shirer.

About GREG

Students of mine really learn what they are doing and end up being able to teach anyone else how to improve their playing. I've played for over 45 years, have a master's degree in classical guitar performance and I can change your life so you can be the musician you've always wanted to be.
