I'm a skilled musician who has a deep passion for developing aspiring students. I've taught guitar for 8 years now and have had many students. I earned a degree in Music Composition from Azusa Pacific University in 2006. I love what I do and devote all of my energy towards music. I know that I can help you achieve your musical goals because I remember what it was like to start from the beginning.  Maybe you're not starting from the beginning but have reached a plateau in your playing and wish to reach the next level. There is a wealth of information available today but without a sequential approach, you will encounter unnecessary frustration and a lack of real improvement. With the right tools, the learning process can be enjoyable and fun. Whether your looking to become a speed demon, or just learn a few chords, I can help you implement strategies that will put you on the fast track to excelling in your desired field. I teach all styles and have a particular passion for film, video game music, metal, rock, classical and jazz music. Areas of focus include: -Chords (power chord extensions, inversions, altered dominants)  -Scales (modes, harmonic and melodic minor, diminished and whole tone) -Arpeggios (sweeping patterns, alternate picking through arpeggios) -Jazz Soloing (learning to navigate through complex chord progressions)  -Ear Training (learning to identify chords and scales by ear) -Music Theory ( spelling chords and scales and knowing how to use them)  -Speed and Accuracy ( how to get your playing to sound clean and fast)  -Composition and Songwriting ( Various compositional techniques and song writing approaches)

Instruments:

At the age of six, I began learning classical guitar, though it was not long after memorizing finger-picking etudes when studying Bach and Mozart evoloved into transcribing Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimmy Page solos. It wasn't until the sixth grade when I picked up my first saxophone, and that is when my world split open and melted at the hands of jazz. In the tenth and eleventh grade, I performed alongside some of the finest high school musicians in the country in the 2008 Concert Band of America and 2009 Jazz Band of America. During those years, I began, and have not stopped working as a private instuctor for students of all ages and varying skill levels. While studying at Florida State Unviersity, I formed a five-piece funk band called Shoes and Laces which gained success playing shows alongside national touring acts and released a full-length albumn entitled Melodious Junk which sold hundreds of copies across the country. I currently live in Los Angeles, California working as a freelance musician and private instructor.

    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..

    My daughter, Valarie is one of the original members of the Enrichment Center Percussion Ensemble under the guidance of Aaron. He patiently worked with Valarie as well as the other five members individually and as a group to produce music that has been shared and enjoyed locally as well as nationally. He has the ability to seek out the strengths of each student while building confidence. Through his teachings, not only had Valarie learned how to produce and enjoy music, but also responsibility and so many life skills for everyday living.

    Review by Linda

    I am a beginning guitar player that has now taken five lessons with Jeff. I cannot speak highly enough of Jeff has a guitar teacher! I have learned more in five lessons than the months I spent trying to learn on my own. Jeff has introduced me to music apps that I can use during my practice sessions, followed up our lessons with comments and/or music, is very encouraging - yet holds high standards. During my lessons I feel that Jeff is very observant and tuned in to your positioning when playing - whether it be your wrist, your arm, or your fingers. He always offers recommendations on ways to try to fix something that I might be struggling with. He really pays attention. As an aside, Jeff is a very talented songwriter and musician. Check him out on YouTube. His songs are very beautiful and inspirational. I'm honored to be his student! - Linda

    She is amazing! My daughter, Isabella (7 yrs) is totally engaged in the lesson. Lilly's definitely has a gift with teaching young children!!! A great talent of hers is making the content interesting, current to today's music and most of all fun! She has a knack for taking the material and translating it in a way that is relatable to Isabella. My daughter really enjoys her lesson's and has moved along rather quickly with the material. Thanks Lilly!

    After moving from NY and parting from our amazing piano instructor, we thought we couldn't find a piano teacher close to what we knew. We are happy to say Musika matched us up with someone professional and friendly who enjoys teaching younger students. Thank you! We definitely recommend Kuan as a piano instructor :)

    Travis rocks. My 7-year-old son and I both take lessons with him. Travis has moved me off the plateau I was on with lessons that focus on theory and technique. And for my son, he's been able to instill a desire and interest that were missing when he previously took piano lessons. With Travis teaching us, the limits are the ones we impose on ourselves. Needless to say, Travis himself plays a mean guitar to boot!

    Review by Yury

    I would like to thank Polina for the series of classical piano lessons I've taken recently. Polina is a fantastic teacher and a high class performer, and I'm really happy I had a chance to meet her! I believe anyone can benefit from the teaching method Polina is practicing regardless of the student proficiency - from beginners to advanced performers. It was a pleasure for me to study classical piano courses under the guidance of such an intelligent & professional teacher! Without doubt, my playing technique has improved a lot and I have signed up for the new classes online already.

    "I've been taking lessons with Richard for just a little over six months now and all I can say is that he is an amazing instructor. He hasn't followed a set one size fits all script in his lessons but has instead worked with my musical interests and at my pace in a way that is truly valuable. He has also kept things fun, interesting, and engaging even at times when I've felt overwhelmed and discouraged. This is an instructor that is truly adaptable to his students and will make sure that they get the most out of their lessons. I would definitely recommend him to anybody that truly wants to unlock their musical potential."

    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.
