My Approach: My job is to work with your current skill sets, desires, and goals to create a fun learning experience that you can gain lifelong skills from. If you want to focus on one instrument, we can do that. Another option is to combine instruments / production / engineering in any combination or form to create a unique and customizable lesson plan to suit your goals.
My Story: I'm a 21-year-old multi-instrumentalist, composer/performer, and producer. I am self-taught in all areas of music, then furthered my knowledge in various forms of academic and creative education. I was accepted to California Institute of the Arts for Music Technology, and later for Composition and Guitar Performance, then I began my professional career teaching, performing, and writing.
My Space: My home studio has 2 computers running Ableton & FL studio, KRK Studio Monitors, Ableton Push 2 controller, MIJ Stratocaster, G&L SC-2, 1990s Hamer Bass, and more.
Lesson style: Students come to my studio in Altadena, 30 minuets to an hour is a typical lesson duration, and I charge $40 an hour. I am flexible in many respects, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions :)
We can all learn somthing from each other, I find that I learn alot by working with others. I enjoy helping others move towards a goal they want and evolving their sound and techniqe to further their music and creation.
A manageable place to utilize the music studio at the rate of $50 an hour. The Instructor and studio comprehensible and adequate, with teaching a musician.
great musician, this guy can teach u basically anything there is to know abt music.
Miles is a patient and kind instructor. I enjoyed my sessions with him very much. I also appreciated his flexibility with scheduling. Highly recommend!
To begin I have them tell me about what they like about music, how they started, and what they wish to achive. Then I ask them to play something (if they can) so I can asses their skill level. And lastly ill have them play along with me on a couple of things to get a further idea of where we're at.

I would say make sure you have a general interest beforehand. A teacher is there to help you progress faster and pass down knowledge that will help you in the long run, but if you're not motivated enough, the teacher can only do so much.
