Ronald S.

Citrus Heights, CA

About Ronald

With a Bachelor's Degree in music from California State University Sacramento I studied with the best, including graduates from Juilliard and Eastman. I focus on what my students want to play and provide a harmonic grounding to enable the student to improvise or just "jam" with anybody. I also provide a positive reinforcement atmosphere and will accept ground floor beginners to advanced intermediate students.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe it's important to create a relaxed, stress free lesson atmosphere to encourage creativity and self confidence. While mistakes are expected I believe b
uilding a students self confidence will make those mistakes disappear. We'll start with fundamentals which will build your understanding of what you're playing and be able to apply it to whatever music you wish to play.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student must have own piano.

*** Specialties ***
I read music and can sight read any style. I specialize in classical, but also play jazz, ragtime and new age music.

David M.

Carmichael, CA

About David

I have been a working musician and occasional private music teacher for over 40 years. During that time I had a career in the professional audio and video industry, during which I learned how to successfully deal with people. I recently returned to school and completed a Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree at CSU Sacramento. My goal is to bring excitement and enthusiasm for music and playing an instrument to my students, and to create musicians who will make and enjoy music throughout their lives. I play guitar, bass guitar and flute, and enjoy teaching all of them to all age groups.

*** Lesson Details ***
Playing music is supposed to be fun. Lessons include playing, so they should be fun as well. My lessons are both focused and fun. I believe you get out of music what you put in. If a student doesn't practice in between lessons, I will know. If a student does practice, I will know that as well. My lessons stress not only what to practice, but how. In 3-6 months, the beginning student can expect to be able to make a pleasing sound on the instrument, and be able to play beginning repertoire. Most importantly, the student will be able to play well enough to enjoy the instrument, which inevitably leads to more productive practice and continued improvement. This continued improvement is what lessons are all about.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If I travel to a student's home, I will bring my instrument only. I expect the student to provide all other equipment necessary for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
Folk guitar, rock and roll and blues bass, classical flute, analog and digital recording

About Alexander

I've been a personal academic tutor since August of 2013 specializing in basic math, pre-algebra, algebra, and algebra 2 as well as English and German. I also love teaching music. I specialize in ukulele and guitar and have been playing guitar since I was 15 and picked up the ukulele at 18. I have experience teaching people of from 8 - 70 years old and with a wide range of backgrounds, needs, and goals.

A little about myself. I was born and raised in the Sacramento area. I have 3 younger siblings ranging from 10 to 12 years younger than me, so I have experience teaching younger children a
s well. One of my sisters is special needs with autism and mild CP. I understand the difficulties children with special needs can face in school especially in math and language arts. I am currently studying at Sierra college with a major in computer science. I love teaching and learning and helping people succeed. There is no greater accomplishment than helping someone go from staring blankly at the task in front of them, to them suddenly grasping it, sharing in their success and sense of accomplishment is magical.

Sunnie W.

Rocklin, CA

About Sunnie

Sunnie had a humble start growing up in the small town of Grass Valley, CA northeast of Sacramento where throughout grade school she was a dedicated member of the choir. She went on to enroll in the Bachelor of Arts degree program for music at California State University, Sacramento. During her higher education, Sunnie supported herself by working at Starbucks Coffee Company where she's held a position for six years. At the same time, she worked hard to engrain herself into the vibrant music scene throughout the Greater Sacramento area.

After graduating in December 2013 at the age of 23,
she immediately enrolled in the Commercial Recording program at American River College in Sacramento. At the same time, Sunnie embarked on a six-month long internship at Sacramento's J Street Recorders under the supervision of owner/operator Brian Wheat, bassist for the internationally acclaimed rock band Tesla. She assisted in the recording of Tesla's latest album, Simplicity, and earned an assistant engineer album credit.

Additionally in early 2014, Sunnie was hired as a lead vocalist in Sacramento's most well-known and active entertainment band, the award winning Hip Service. With the group, Sunnie has performed for thousands of people throughout the country. She has performed along-side renowned artists such as Juan Escovedo and Naughty by Nature. Her past audiences include Condeleezza Rice, Google and the City of Sacramento. Never one to be complacent, Sunnie is also an avid songwriter and has worked with several local and regional producers to record and release her original work.

Currently, Sunnie is gigging with Hip Service, teaching voice to her own roster of private students, and finishing the last semester for her degree in Commercial Recording. She is looking forward to seeing where her music will take her this year through her work as a performer, engineer, songwriter, and vocal instructor.

Sunnie truly understands the importance of healthy, accurate singing when it comes to live performance and uses this as an underlying theme in every lesson she gives. She also emphasizes artistry and expression so that her students are not only singing in a healthy way but they are making art at the same time!
