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.
A lesson might include: - exercises that develop skills in posture, breathing, vocal support, tone production and resonance - learning songs and choosing audition repertoire that best suits your voice and showcases your unique talent - the design of a warm-up routine to use before a performance - special attention targeting trouble spots in music, issues with vocal range or transitions between vocal registers - coaching in diction (English, Italian, French, German, Latin, Hebrew), articulation, and projection - music reading skills and ear training - audition preparation and help learning music - other areas of focus inspired by the singer's strengths and challenges
Having been influenced by music from all around the world since childhood, I consider myself to be a passionate and open-minded voice instructor. Prior to attending a music college,, I had performed all over various venues in Inglewood and Los Angeles, crooning and serenading audiences with Jazz and R&B standards; often being called to perform for the Mayor of Inglewood and other important political figures. In 2013, I completed my college education at the Berklee College of Music, earning a degree in Music Education. While in college, I continued to perform all over with various bands, including my own.
I taught myself how to play the clarinet when I was 13 years old. In high school, I was accepted in to the California All State Honor Band my junior and senior years (2007, 2008). The experiences I had powerful and emotional impact on me, and it was then that I decided to dedicate a life to music through my clarinet. In 2013, I graduated from CSU Fullerton with a Bachelor of Music degree in Clarinet Performance and I am currently working on completing my Masters of Music degree there as well. My musical involvements at school are focused in my performances with the CSUF Wind Symphony and the CSUF Symphony Orchestra, where I served as the principal clarinet for our last concert season. While I've been in college ,I've been fortunate to play in music festivals in both the US (Hawaii Performing Arts Festival) and Canada (Domaine Forget) and toured with the CSU Fullerton Wind Symphony in Portugal and China. I'm passionate about making music that I can share with others and, as a teacher, I hope to inflect that same passion within my students.
My approach to learning an instruments is to have the students learn to play by ear first before they can start learning to read music. I find that most students are able to progress quickly because it frees them to focus on the playing the instruments rather than reading notes. I consider reading music like different subject that they learn later. Learning music is like learning to speak. First we learn to talk and then we learn to read and write. I allow the student to progress at their own pace and with patience and diligence they are able to play and enjoy playing their instrument.

She is the most amazing teacher ever. She is not only w great teacher but she's so fun to work with. She has taught me so many things in such little amount of time things I didn't even know I could do. I recommend Andrea to everyone. She is an amazing singer and cares a lot about her students. She's the best!!

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.

Darrell is A-Maz-Ing! He demands results from his students and therefore results come quickly. The time he spends teaching is intense and packed with great instruction. He is a tough teacher but offers lots of valuable instruction that is applicable for music as well as life in general. I highly recommend Darrell if you are ready for results!

Rahsaan is an extremely talented player who relates really well with my teenagers. He has them both interested in learning. Given Rahsaan's expertise, it's clear that even though they are beginners now, they can learn from him for a long time to come. He's a real nice laid-back guy and both the boys really enjoy their time with him. I've been very impressed and pleased with the experience.

Rebecca has been super with my son! He is 8yrs old and has mild aspergers. He has never played an instrument before but after one lesson with his teacher he could keep a beat on his drums. She is able to keep his attention and really makes it fun! She is flexible and easy going. I highly recommend her for any lessons. Very nice teacher! Thank you Rebecca for your outstanding service!!

Stephanie is an excellent voice teacher! Our 10-year-old daughter enjoys her lessons with Stephanie each week. She has an amazing way of connecting with our daughter through music. Stephanie knows how to offer constructive feedback in a positive way that keeps our daughter interested and wanting to learn more. I would recommend Stephanie without hesitation.
Review by Lea G
Kevin was such a fun, smart and innovative voice teacher to work with. I had the pleasure of taking lessons with him for over a year and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my time under his training. In just a few weeks I noticed my voice was stronger and I was able to apply his teaching and see the results. He explains his techniques in a way that the student is able to actually hear and feel the changes he is referring to. This allows the student to efficiently practice outside of lessons. Even further, he believed in me and truly cared about my progress. He was always energetic and focused in lessons and was continually surprised how far a song could come in just one hour of his time. Under his teaching I developed a stronger belt in my higher range, learned how to color my voice for different sounds and improved my stage presence. I wholeheartedly trust Kevin’s musical insight and was grateful that he challenged me with a wide variety of songs and styles that I hadn’t considered trying before.
Review by La from Issaquah
thank you musika and ed. I never thought of looking for an in-home lesson until I found musika. I have absolutely no hesitation that Ed is beyond capable. He's even offered to meet us at a music store to purchase the correct fitting instrument. how fabulous is that! We've also decided to extend the lesson time from 30 to 45 minutes. All this and just one lesson under our belt. He quickly understood where my daughter is at in level and her style of music. I'm thrilled as can be.
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.
