I have been a successful Music Educator for over 30 years beginning in High School as a Student/Instructor and on up to the present day as a long term veteran of Musika, LLC. I am uniquely qualified to handle a multitude of learning situations because of his broad practical knowledge base and my multi-instrument skill sets. By following a unique methodology, the ability to play any piece of music set before them is just one of the many skills students will quickly master. As a Bandleader, my ability to teach is indispensible. It enables me to communicate intricate and complex musical ideas accurately and concisely to his fellow professionals in addition to quickly resolving any technical issues about equipment or performance. I have performed and/or toured with the likes of: James Brown, Al Green, Cuba Gooding Sr., Keb Mo, Chaka Kahn and Ike Turner Sr., and many other well- established Recording Artists in the music industry.
My student retention rate is 90%, I keep most of my students for 5 years or more because they feel that learning is fun, and performing the things they learned in front of a real live audience fuels their desire to be the best they can be. Music is an art that is always changing, so learning music is almost never ending.
I like to work based on what each student needs. I encourage the student to take his or her own interests into account on a regular basis. I also use a basic foundation to determine what the student needs to attack first, such as technique, harmony, ear trinning and scales. Of course, finger, pick, and slap styles are included. All kind of styles & genres are welcome, from the more basic to the more complex genres.
My teaching style is based upon tried and true methods of education that I excelled at while working in public schools. I make individual assesments of each student, deveop a long-term curriculum based on this assessment, and realistically set goals and objectives that will ensure the students progression. By working with parents and staying in close communication with students, we can track and insure student progess. Additionally, I have high expectations of all my students to excel. If students know what is expected of them by teachers and parents, then they are more likely to care and try hard to improve.
I am a professional guitarist, producer, and educator who has worked in nearly every aspect of contemporary music (including songwriting, live performance, studio production/engineering, music business, and Apple Logic Pro Instruction at the Dubspot Music School in Hollywood).

Bass is used in many genres, so it is a great instrument for any adult to pick up and play. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, bass lessons can be rewarding at any level. Advanced students will be able to work with their teacher to develop existing skills and learn new ones, while beginners will to start learning the basics and soon enough play along to their favorite songs!
The teachers in our network create a customized lesson plan for every student. Many teachers will recommend a commercial method book or two full of exercises and techniques for practice, and may also bring in many supplemental materials for you to study as well. Topics covered during Musika's bass lessons may include, but are not limited to: learning the notes of the bass, proper fretting, fingering, and plucking technique, how to read music, how to create solid bass lines for rock, pop, jazz, and blues, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the bass!
In home lessons are the most convenient way to bring music into your life. By not having to add another destination to your busy schedule, you are maximizing your time, not to mention your budget by not having to pay for travel expenses. You will receive the same custom lessons as our in studio lessons, except in the the comfort of your own home.
The most popular instrument with beginning bass students is a standard 4-string bass. This will be more than sufficient for you to learn and develop your skills as you begin and continue on with lessons. Most music stores will have a variety to choose from such as instruments made by Ibanez, Fender, or Gibson. If you are going into lessons with the goal to play heavy metal, or rock music, you may want to look into a 5 string bass. This extra string allows the student access to lower notes that are used in those genres.
Bass is a great instrument for older children to begin with. Due to the size of the instrument, and the weight of the heavier strings, younger children will not be able to work with the bass comfortably. If students are interested in playing with groups such as a school jazz band, the bass is a great option.

Angela is a phenomenal teacher. She is full of charisma and is a joy to work with. Most of my experience with her has been focused on working in the Alexander Technique and she seems very knowledgeable in this study. I would highly recommend her to any prospective student. I have seen myself improve dramatically in a few short weeks with her guidance (and much practice of course!)
Review by Violetking
Bill has been a great teacher for both my 6 yr. old and my 8 yr. old. He is always on time, keeps them engaged, and gives them just enough of a challenge for the next week. They are both beginners, but I am surprised by how much they already know after just a month or so of lessons. Both kids are practicing willingly and look forward to lesson.
Review by Queen Natalia
Lara is highly intelligent and knowledgeable in her profession. She is cheerful and personable, and has established a good rapport with students and staff alike. I have found Lara to be a highly competent, personable, patient, kind-hearted, and deeply caring person who is skilled professionally and interpersonally.

Henry is teaching my daughter how to play piano. Henry is an excellent teacher, we really like and appreciate him. His teaching style works very well for my daughter, she is comfortable which makes learning enjoyable. Henry is very patient and I can see that he is passionate about teaching music. Great teacher for sure.
Review by Gillian
Vince is a great drum teacher for my 8 year old son. We go to his house where he has a studio setup with a huge drum set. He has been very patient but really holds my son responsible for learning the right way to play. After about 5 lessons, my son is playing some rhythms on the drums and reading music. He looks forward to his lessons with Vince.
Review by Travis Dalenberg
Travis is the greatest. He knows his music and how to teach it. He gives you time to learn, but will not allow student time to get lazy. I know he teaches all age groups. Young pre-teens to us old folks 78 years young. I have been taking lessons from him since early December 2014. He is a true professional. You can't go wrong with him.
Review by Brenda Duffey-jepsen
Omar is a great teacher as he provides expert instruction AND the right amount of encouragement. He is a professional musician on several instruments, yet he is patient with beginners! He also has gone out of his way to purchase an appropriate book for me, strings to re-string the cello, and extra attention to tuning. I appreciate how he explains and demonstrates exactly what a beginning cello student needs to know.
Review by Jennifer
Dave is a fantastic teacher. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to students that I think is invaluable. At the same time, this does not limit him from working with beginning students. He is very communicative with the parents as far as schedule changes. We are so grateful to have found him!!
Review by Valerie Moore
Kevin is very friendly and professional trombone teacher. During the first session he assessed my 12 year old son's strengths and identified areas for development. He has helped him refine his technique which helps our son in band class but also has him working on duets that help him grow in new ways. He comes to our home and is always very punctual. I would highly recommend Kevin!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
