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

The Art Of The Song

The Art Of The Song

I teach songwriting at UC Berkeley and have taught at Blue Bear in SF and have many private students.  I believe the best creative impulses come from our unconscious minds.  I help students get past blocks, tune into their own instincts, and then use specific skills to shape rough ideas into finished songs that succeed in communicating their tideas and emotions.  Unlike many teachers, I focus on composition as well as lyrics: Melody is HUGELY important and I teach tricks to create fresh interest in the ears of your listeners.  I don't believe in rules or generalizations--every song is different and songwriting concepts are ...

Rapid Progress Piano School

Rapid Progress Piano School

I specialize in helping you or your child make rapid progress. You have my full focus of attention and I use techniques that I learned the hard way. Most of my teachers were great musicians and masterful performers but they did not master the art of teaching. This is why it is important to remember that great musicians and great performers are not always great teachers. If you want to make rapid progress, it is best to find a teacher who can show you how you can do it NOW. I seek to create joy in your heart and put a smile on your face by providing you with the fastest results possible. + Wrote and directed a musical at the College of Marin ... View Profile

SF Bay Guitar Lessons

SF Bay Guitar Lessons

Hello, I started playing the guitar 23 years ago and have been teaching for the last seven. Teaching has become my life passion, from rock to jazz, country, jam, r&b, folk, blues, southern and even hip hop, I love it all. Everyone learn differently and wants to achieve different things, so each lesson is set according to the students needs. One student might want to learn their favorite songs while another wants to learn how to tune by ear. Mixing things up the and do lots of different kinds of activities keeps the lessons fresh and fun. New students are always encouraged to pick out a favorite song or musician for us to use as a goal fo ... View Profile

Music Without Borders

Music Without Borders

Hi, my name is Ruslan (Russ). I believe that music is more than just a skill or a language. My approach concerns helping people to understand how to express oneself through infinite means of sound and rhythm without overloading the brain with often useless rules and limitations, while expanding active knowledge about instruments and different types of music. Music has been around me since I was born. I played tunes on guitar since the age of 6, then started playing seriously at around 14. All self-taught, I started picking other instruments such as piano, bass guitar, drums along the way, succeeding in seeing parallels and working out how mus ... View Profile
