Aloha! Thanks for inquiring about my one on one Paino instruction and DJ courses!
Piano: I'm a 15 year classically trained pianist from Kailua, Oahu. I offer courses to beginners with zero to some piano knowledge. I teach the fundamentals of reading notes and sheet music, the terminolagy of music, basic chords and chord structure (scales), and will get you reading music so that you can practice songs you like at home with only the sheet music to go off of!
DJ: I am a professional DJ for the better part of 15 years. In 2012 I was named Honolulu Star Advertiser DJ of the Year. I have taught lessons since 2013 taking students with no knowledge of DJ'ing to performing gigs within 6 months. I specialize in HOUSE and TECHNO music and offer no courses for HIP-HOP at this time. I will teach you the history of DJ'ing, beatmatching, mixing in key, how to source your music, setting up your online accounts and social media cunsulting, and how to find gigs and get performing!
Miko is the best DJ teacher on Oahu and all of Hawaii. If you want to learn the ins and out of DJ'ing, Miko is a must! Very detailed oriented and provides amazing feedback. He is very well connected in the DJ space on Oahu and can help start up your career. Thank you for everything you do Miko!!!
I work 1 on 1 with students learning the fundimentals of either Piano or DJ'ing. My average time for students learning to read music is about 3-6 months depending on commitment, and getting my DJ students properly mixing in about 2-3 months.
First few lessons include discussing the history, learning basics, and homework that includes practicing and souring information online.
