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.
Gabriel has been teaching privately for over 15 years to students of all ages and backgrounds and is well versed in most styles: jazz, blues, rock, funk, punk, metal, acoustic, shred, etc. So he is capable of playing/teaching anything. Often his students bring in songs that he's never heard or played before, and he is able to teach them how to play them within minutes upon hearing them. Gabriel prides himself on being versatile and enabling each student to achieve their own goals. Gabriel feels it is important to get out of the lessons what you want. So he does not have a set curriculum, and tailors each lesson to the student. He is very patient and presents material in an easily digestible manner, so we will move at your pace. He loves working with beginners and getting them off to a good start, just as much as he enjoys taking advanced students to the next level. The one thing that sets Gabriel apart from other teachers is his extensive knowledge about the history of music, the guitar, and music theory. He is able to relate whatever we are doing to the core fundamentals of playing the guitar and music in general. He feels it is essential to understand what you are playing not just how to play it.
I use Alfreds guitar method books for guitar and bass. Piano I use the Bastian and others. I teach from both my song books, and by thier cd or audio tracks. I teach each student individually and move them forward to performance level. I teach how to read music and music ear training. Theory training is also available at lessons as needed.
I have been in touring bands and in the studio for 30+ years. My mom was a music teacher and I have carried on the family tradition. I love nurturing musicians young and old and and have great success helping people find their music voice. I can teach music fundementals, but can take you even further teaching the theory of music, chords, scales, music composing and songwriting. I will give you solid techniques that you can use every day and apply to your music endeavors whether you want to become a professional or you just want to entertain your friends and family. We will have fun exploring the music you know and love and learn to expand your horizons into places you never knew existed. I am lifelong musician and love to share my knowledge. If all that interests you, then we will have a wonderful journey uncovering your inner musician and acquiring the tools you will be able to use for the rest of your life.

In home lessons are great for both adults and children alike. Everyone has a busy schedule, and by choosing in home lessons, learning an instrument becomes extremely convenient. There is no need to spend time and money traveling to a studio when you can have the teacher come right to your home.
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.
A standard 4-string bass is a good choice for beginners. Popular brands include Fender, Gibson, and Ibanez. Students who may be interested in hard rock or heavy metal may consider a 5-string bass, which grants access to lower, deeper tones.
All lessons will be comprised of learning to read music, how to play with correct technique, and advance your musicianship. Depending on the instrument, lessons may also include skills such as proper fretting, plucking technique, and how to improvise bass lines for different genres. All lessons are customized for the student's skill level and ambitions.
The bass is a really fun instrument for adults who have no prior experience with music. Students of any age can learn to listen for the bass lines in their favorite songs and learn how to play along.

Amber is personal and cares about her students. She is flexible in her schedule and maintains a professional attitude in her lessons. Her want for her students to succeed makes her excel as a teacher. She is very knowledgeable about music and extremely experienced. Additionally, she includes external activities aside from lessons for the students who wish to advance themselves externally. Really a great teacher who offers great opportunity.
Review by Brooklyn
Laura is a fabulous teacher. She explains concepts to me using concrete examples so that I can understand changes that I need to make to my posture, breathing, phrasing, etc. She makes warm-up exercises fun, and she's got a great sense of humor over all. Her teaching style is collaborative, more egalitarian (she respects what I already know and meets me at my level), tailored to my particular interests and strengths, and I always look forward to our lessons!

Brett is an accomplished musician, who shared his knowledge at a level that my five year old understands. He is polite and relaxed in his mannerisms but take a serious approach to focusing on the lesson. He is very patient and engaging with the attention span you'd expect from a kindergartener. His motto ever is "sometime you learn faster by going slow"
Review by Paula Chacon
I've always said, "It's all about the teacher." That skillful, effective teacher who can reach that child and ignite her passion, is truly a gift. Ric does that for my daughter. As a former music teacher myself, the most challenging thing in working with children is how to build their fundamental musical skills while letting them have fun and be expressive. The teacher must create a safe, supportive environment, and Ric does that. Ric immediately focuses on fundamentals of tone and technique, giving my daughter succinct instruction on how to improve, thus she can sense the improvement immediately. Ric seems extremely easy going; even when lighting a fire under her sometimes under-achieving butt, Ric never criticizes, judges or blames. He works with my child, understanding her, helping her problem solve, and even giving her the quick answer sometimes so she can move quickly and stay motivated. Ric balances fundamentals with fun and expressiveness, so my child feels as though she can 'play' and they truly make music in every lesson. I am thankful we found a good match with Ric.
Review by Shilpa
"Richard is a very talented and a patient teacher. He teaches my 6 year old daughter in the comfort of our home and he is very regular. He follows a learning book and mixes his lessons to bring difficulty and technicality while keeping it interesting for my daughter. My daughter was difficult to work with at the beginning but he was able motivate her in every possible way. As a parent I make an effort to learn with my daughter so that when my daughter practices I am able to guide and correct her and Richard is very generous to take the time to give provide me concepts. I am extremely happy with Richard and his ability to teach children."
Review by Susan
My daughter is extremely happy and comfortable with Rachel, and looks forward to her piano lessons every week. She is a very kind and patient teacher, always using positive reenforcement with my daughter, which makes all the difference in the world to children. We definitely are looking forward to continued piano lessons with her. So glad we found her.
Review by Marlo
Danette is a delightful instructor. She always brings a wealth of knowledge, excitement, and enthusiasm to piano lessons with my daughter. She is not only skilled at piano, but she has a wonderful voice quality that she uses to help convey certain techniques and to highlight various points where she intends to draw the students attention.

Lindsey has been coming to our house to give saxophone lessons to our 12 year old daughter for about a month. She is an absolute joy. She is extremely knowledgeable, flexible with her schedule, and my daughter thinks she is "fun" and "cool". We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting music lessons. A+
Review by Emily
Steve gets you started right away with songs but also goes into music theory and reading music which adds to understanding and appreciation of the music. He is very approachable and you can tell that he absolutely loves music and teaching. It is hard not to be excited about the process of learning with Steve. If you are considering lessons I highly recommend Steve for any level of student.
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.
