Christopher M

David I

Instruments:

I have been in the music business and teaching guitar for over ten years. I am equally qualified to teach children, adults and everyone in between! With over ten years of experience working in youth music programs I have learned a variety of games and fun activities that are particularly effective in engaging young learners. My main goal with children is to get them hooked on music so they'll turn it into a life long pursuit. I am a warm, sincere person and I enjoy developing a relationship with each one of my students. I am very patient yet I expect nothing less than excellence of myself and my students.

Jon-Oliver K

Instruments:

Spanning a range from Bach to rock, Afro-Cuban to Flamenco, north Indian to Latino, Jon-O has a versatility and depth that comes only from an intense need to understand his craft. He has traveled and toured extensively throughout the Americas, Australasia and Europe, expanding his knowledge, exploring his art and building his multi-cultured repertoire.                                                                          Under the tutelage of Bill Kanengiser and Scott Tenant, members of the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, Jon-o completed his studies in classical guitar at the University of Southern California in 2000. Since then he has been commissioned to perform for Carlos Santana, has shared a stage with “Maestro” Lázaro Galarraga, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, and Peter Jacobson, to name a few. He considers it an honor to have studied with the late sitar master, Rahul Sariputra.  Jon-O continues to perform with other top musicians while he wraps up production with producer, Angel Figuero.

Cory M

Instruments:

I have loved listening and playing music for as long as I can remember. I have had the good fortune to meet and study with some of the most famous musicians on the planet! I have always enjoyed learning in a one on one situation and that is how I like to teach. I have a pro studio fully equipped for teaching piano, guita, bass, voice, violin, harmonica, songwriting and recording.

Matthew C

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and dedicated music instructor with 10 years teaching and 15 years playing experience. I have toured extensively throughout Australia, the United States and Canada as a performing musician and songwriter in multiple acts, and have recorded in top studios in all 3 cities.  I am degree educated in popular music and performance, and thoroughly enjoy bringing that wealth of musical knowledge and experience to every lesson I give. I can teach in students homes, or alternatively I enjoy teaching in my own Hollywood apartment studio.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

For young beginners, it is suggested that they start their guitar lessons by playing half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars. Older students may be able to start off using an electric guitar, under the condition that they find it comfortable to hold. A student model guitar can be purchased in the $150 -$200 price range new, however, extra costs will need to be considered for electric guitar players, as amplification and cables will need to be purchased as well. Higher quality instruments tend to be easier to play, which will facilitate students enjoyment and progression in learning to play the guitar.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home guitar lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home guitar lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to play the guitar in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure and familiar environment.
Young children will start out by learning how to fret notes with the left hand, and how to pluck or strum the strings with their right hand. This will allow them to play simple, familiar songs on one string. Students will start learning to read music, and eventually learn how to play the common open guitar chords. Once students are more familiar with the guitar fretboard, they can start learning barre chords, moveable scales, and be introduced to music theory. Advanced students might decide to study classical guitar repertoire, rock or blues solos, or even jazz improvization.
At Musika, we recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favorite song, write your own music, develop a certain technique or join a band, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality! It can take time - often months - to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the guitar to a good level. The best and quickest way to learn the fundamental skills is to take regular lessons and practice your guitar playing as often as possible.
Students are able to start taking guitar lessons with Musika by the age 6. Students of this age are advised to learn on a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings, as it will be much easier to play. They will start by learning simple tunes on the top strings of the guitar. By ages 7-8, students will have progressed onto learning to play chords and how to play and sing along to some of their favorite songs. At ages 10-12, students are often able to hold a full size guitar quite comfortably, and can want to learn rock music on an electric guitar.
