Guitar Lessons

I've been playing guitar for almost 10 years since I first fell in love with the instrument back in junior high. Though I play a range of instruments, acoustic guitar has been the one that has allowed me to be the most creative. I am sure that I can help you in whatever state you are at. Whether you are wanting to pick up the guitar for the first time or you want to learn how to get out of the same routine, only playing the same five chords. I am confident that I can be of help to you and your musical future. I hope to work with you soon.

Drums Lessons

As a kid the first instrument I began learning was actually piano. But, in early elementary school a friend give me a pair of drumsticks and a drum pad, then I began to fall in love with music. I have a lot of experience playing drums, the majority of my experience is actually in marching band and in ensembles and symphonies. I can teach you the fundamentals and basics when it comes to percussion, drums, and the drum set. I feel very confident that I can take you from a beginner to an intermediate drummer and give you the tools that you need to keep growing from there. I hope we get to work together soon.

Songwriting Lessons

At of all things I love to do, songwriting is at the top of the list. I've been writing songs for almost 10 years, and I am now at a place where it's beginning to be my career. I specifically, like the challenge of writing songs for other artists. This keeps me constantly on my feet, always trying to learning a new skill, and in some cases even writing songs that I can't even play or perform. I think I know what it takes for a song to sound great, or to fit a particular genre or mood. I'd love to work with you on my hearts favorite passion.

Overview

My name is Isaiah Barker. My wife, Sabrina, and I live in La Habra/Fullerton with our puppy, Latte. I've been playing guitar for over 9 years, specializing in pop and worship songwriting. My heart has always been to write great songs, and in my recent career, I have been blessed to see amazing things come from this love. I am a worship leader at Redemption Hill Church in Uptown Whittier, which is where I can host you, my potential student, and get you to the place you want to be at in your musical journey. Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile. Hope to work with you soon.

My Studio

Though I live in Fullerton/La Habra, I have a studio/office at my church in uptown Whittier. I am able to teach drums guitar and songwriting there. If you are interested and taking guitar and/or songwriting lessons with me, I would also be able to host you at my apartment in Fullerton if that is easier. I can also drive up to 15 miles and the surrounding areas to meet you.

Worship Music/Church Songwriting

My main love in music is writing songs for the church and other Christian song writers and artists. I am confident that I can help and teach you and whatever areas you need when it comes to songwriting. I have been blessed to be able to call this a career. If you are looking for a Christian instructor, I hope that I can be the best of help to you.
I've been writing worship songs and songs for other artists for over five years. I work at a church as the worship leader where I lead people weekly in musical worship. I am blessed to have a job where they encourage songwriting to take place, and also where it is encouraged to play those songs on Sunday mornings. I can help with song structure, lyrics, theology, and concepts.
