My teaching approach: When I started taking lessons at the age of 9, my teachers only wanted to teach me songs and music that THEY liked and I almost quit because of it. As a result, I am dedicated to teaching my students the music that THEY love and I use that music to help them understand the fundamentals of music theory and guitar technique. My belief is that music has to be fun as well as educational. I am currently offering online lessons only. You can learn from the comfort of your own home with one-on-one live video lessons! Guitar Techniques: Vocal Accompaniment, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Reading Music, Music Theory, ... View Profile

Students can take lessons on a primary instrument (drums, vibraphone, marimba, or general percussion) but all can learn about ear training, and musicianship.  Most drum teachers don't also teach mallet percussion.  I am an active performing musician, and share my tips and experiences from the real world as an experienced musician. I hold a Bachelor's of Music in Jazz Studies from the California Jazz Conservatory in Berkeley. I won first place in the "Jazz Search West" soloist competition in 2014. I have earned several other awards and acknowledgements  for my playing and composing over the years.  Students can bring music ... View Profile

My philosophy of teaching piano and music is an integrated, individualistic approach. My responsibility as a teacher is to tap into the enthusiasm of the student - what excites them and captivates them about music and nurture that curiosity. While covering the spectrum of theory, technique, and depth of sounds - it is also important to keep it fresh with innovative approaches to learning different concepts and I achieve this using many different ways honed over the years. 'Practice' has become a loaded word with learning music and I encourage individuals to be self-motivated from their own desire to learn and reap the benefits of what 'practi ... View Profile

I've been teaching guitar for over 30 years.  Electric, acoustic,... all are fair game.  Making it fun, while developing skills and technique is where I focus.  Nothing succeeds like success so we go from strength to strength.  This applies to all ages, children through adults.  Improvisation is always fun and inspiring so we learn music theory, applying it along the way.  It's also interesting to introduce other styles like world music while still working on more expected styles like blues, classic rock, and jazz.  My students range from amateurs, playing for enjoyment to professionals who have gone on to d ...
