To all of my students I bring the experience of performing in hundreds of venues around the world in diverse musical settings ranging from rock to jazz to classical. I bring the same passion to my lessons as I do to my stage performances. I have released several studio albums, composed music for film and television, and produced tracks for local LA bands.You will benefit from my studies with some of the world's greatest guitarists while I earned my music degree at New School University in NYC. I am still continuing my education though private studies and master classes. I believe it is my obligation to my students further my own musical development.
I have been teaching music lessons since I was a child when I started teaching my sisters how to sing. I have always enjoyed connecting with people through music and watching them blossom from the inside out. I have been a touring musician since I was 17 years old. I have many live performace, recording, live radio and TV performances and interviews that give me a wealth of knowlege to share with students that are aspiring Rock Star's to be. I believe that everyone of all ages can benefit from music lessons. Learning an instrument relieves stress and promotes optimal health. I believe that we are all creative being and music is a creative outlet. Researchers have found the acedemic potential of the student is increased by taking lessons for several years.
Welcome to my music studio. I am excited to help you grow as a musician. With a steady practice routine your skill and confidence can only improve. Thank you for taking one step further on your musical path. There are sure to be ups and downs, peaks and plateaus in your musical development. All I ask is that you put in a small amount of practice each day. LESSONS WITH TARA ROSE As your music teacher, I see you as a member of my musical team. My aim as a teacher is to help you reach your musical goals while strengthening your confidence and interest in music. I have a Masters Degree in Music and over a decade of musical training behind me. I am here to guide you in anyway possible. I believe mainly in positive reinforcement. I will always let you know when you’re doing something right. I will also act as a second pair of ears and eyes to help you correct any musical questions or difficulties you may have. Everyone’s musical goals are different. My goal as a music teacher is to help you develop into a musician that YOU are proud of. MAKING GOALS A REALITY Practice! Even ten minutes a day can make a difference. Please develop the routine of practicing the exercises I have given you at least five days a week. The more you put in the more you’ll get out. That last thing I ask is please try to refrain from speaking negatively about my students…that means you! Music is designed to be fun for both the performer and the audience. Though there are bound to be moments of frustration, trust that if you are practicing you are improving, no matter how gradual it may be. I am honored to be a part of your musical development and look forward to watching and hearing your progress!
I enjoy being creative and utilizing new ideas and approaches to improve the learning environment for my students. I have incorporated a variety of hands on activities, fun assignments and learning projects to inspire and motivate my students. This includes the integration of current recording and electronic instrument technology throughout the curriculum. I am passionate about empowering and inspiring students while helping them to develop their full potential. Part of this process includes close interaction with parents to encourage participation and reinforce learning in the home while building the child's self esteem and confidence.
I've been playing music since my nana bought me a mini piano as a toddler. I studied jazz piano, classical, and guitar throughout high school and continued through college where I received training in theory and performance. I currently am teaching at West Coast Music Academy in Santa Clarita, as well as actively performing as a guitarist in a band throughout Los Angeles. I'm a very free thinking teacher who likes to inspire students to love music. Fun is the main objective! Do what you love, and you'll do it well. I'm open for new students of all ages, thank you!

Musika recommends that adult students begin lessons with a clear goal or two in mind, which can greatly help a teacher create a customized lesson plan just for your own lessons.

Taking in home guitar lessons saves you time, energy, and money. There is no need to pack up the guitar or amp to take to the teachers' studio, since a qualified, talented teacher can travel directly to your home. We make finding a teacher easy by matching you with a teacher in our network who fits your needs and schedule.
Young students are advised to start off by learning to play on a half sized or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. Older students may wish to start on an electric guitar, as long as they can hold the guitar comfortably and competently. There are many different student model guitars, which will set you back $150 - $200. This does not include the price for cables and an amplifier, which will be a necessary purchase for electric guitar players. Higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which provides the student a greater chance to enjoy their learning.
Students can start as young as age 6 with a half size classical guitar (nylon strings), by playing simple songs on the top strings. Most students are able to form chords by age 7 or 8, and begin learning how to play and sing along with their favorite songs. Older students will graduate to being able to handle a full size guitar around ages 10-12, which is when many students become interested in learning rock guitar and want to get an electric.
Our guitar students will typically learn how to hold, tune, and familiarize themselves with the components and notes of the guitar, basic playing techniques such as fretting, fingering, and strumming, and learn the various chord-types that they will need in order to play their favorite songs, such as power chords, open chords, and barre chords. Students will also get to learn music theory, and will cover aspects such as reading music, learning different scales, and how to apply these different elements together as part of a full composition. Students will learn the theory and techniques that underlie a wide range of musical genres, and will have fun developing their guitar playing during their lessons. Eventually, students will get to enjoy learning and playing along to their favorite songs!
Review by Natalie Kretcher
I really like her. And as an adult student, a good teacher who keeps the pace up but still keeps it reasonable in terms of difficulty is really hard to find. She does a great job of explaining little detail things in terms I (as a musically challenged human) can understand. I'm having a blast! 10/10 would recommend!

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.

After signing up for lessons with David L. I knew I made the right choice. Just after a couple of weeks I didn't see him as a teacher but as a best friend. There was always a relaxed atmosphere during the lessons. He was very easy to talk to and he really listen to you. If I ever had a question he would answer. He tailors to what ever you want to do in that lesson. David L. is a great teacher and a friend. I totally recommend him for anyone
Review by Chrystal
I was skeptical at first not knowing what I was getting my self into.. I am very happy that I forced myself to get into voice lessons because Eli is an awsome voice coach.. Very skillful and he helps you reach the goal you are trying to reach.. He is also very helpful with getting you to open up and come out of your shell and being heard.. I would and I already have recommended friends and family to sign up with Eli if they're serious about singing..

I've been taking lessons from Michael once a week for eight weeks now, and with his help I have made dramatic improvements with my sax. Michael is a funny, nice, patient and all around great instructor. I'd recommend Michael, as an instructor, to anyone who wants to improve their skills and have fun while doing it.
Review by Terri
Caitlyn is friendly, helpful and still holds my high-school aged daughter accountable for practicing. She also makes sure the music technique is mastered correctly during the lessons - they work hard and still have a good time together. I can highly recommend her as a flute teacher. My daughter is very happy & grateful to have found Caitlyn as a teacher.
Review by Maurice Romero
This is the 1st time I've ever taken lessons, and Robert has been a pleasure to work with. I've made quick progress and have enjoyed the process. I'm always listening for those tips that you can't find in a book. I can count on Robert to be strict on the fundamentals and am clear it will make a difference in the long run.
Review by Jeremy
Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.
Review by Chad H.
"Mr. Richard has been absolutely perfect for our very active two boys. He has been an excellent fit for gauging and keeping their interest far beyond what we had imagined. Our boys actually argue over who gets to go first. Mr. Richard knocks it out of the park when it comes to exceeding our expectations"
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.
