At MadChair, one thing that's very different from lessons elsewhere, is bringing in other musicians to jam in a band type setting once the student feels comfortable. This has proven to be a great aid in getting the student accustomed to performing with others if this is one of their personal goals. I am well versed in blues, rock and roll, metal, classical, funk, jazz, and reggae, and of course have always been passionate about teaching, no matter what style you're into.  ... View Profile

I have been teaching at Moze Guitars for 15 years.  Each lesson is crafted for the individual student.  I don't work out of a "guitar lesson book".  I create each lesson based on the students interest and skill level. Enjoyment of the instrument first and formost.  I want my students to enjoy playing guitar as much as I do. I play in a number of local Bands and perform regularly.  If students are interested in playing with other musicians I regularly pair them up and have students performing.  Playing infront of an audience can really take your playing to the next level. ...

--- At this moment I'm not taking new students in Los Angeles, I'm only accepting Skype students due to a job position in Brazil that forces me to travel often. Music theory and violin lessons work great on skype and it cost less, since the teacher does not have to travel to your house.--- --They are not good only for someone who is completely new to the violin, since in the very beginning it is fundamental to be able to correct posture. If that's your case I can recomend a good violin teacher in the Los Angeles area. --- I was seven years old when I had my first contact with the violin. A violin teacher, who wa ... View Profile
