Fun Guitar Lessons - Matt H
Fun Guitar LessonsVan Nuys, CA

I am a professional musician, with a degree in music in the disciplines of guitar (acoustic & electric), and sound engineering (running sound for live music or recording in a studio). I have as much experience teaching as I do performing, composing/writing, recording/producing music. Also, I was never the virtuoso musician. If you can believe it, I had only played guitar for 9 months before audition for the opportunity to study music.I mention all of that to say: 1) I had to work hard to attain my current skills. So, I know, all too well, the obstacles faced in learning to play. So no matter your skill level, natural ability, or age all are welcome! 2) I have very friendly, laid back, and adaptable approach, because the only way to avoid wishing later that you had stuck with those darn lessons is to ENJOY the learning! So, the aim of the lessons will always be to have fun! 3) That being said, if you are the serious student who has material/curriculum you'd like follow we can absolutely do that. However, most of my students follow a hybrid approach in which they learn to play the music they enjoy, and as a result they experience and learn many of the various concepts of music.I am more than happy to come to your house, school, or practice spot! Due to the high costs of travel in CA, those rates are slightly higher. I also have a very safe, and comfortable studio/practice area at my house, and you are more than welcome to join me here!

Singer Songwriting Lessons - Steve E
Singer Songwriting LessonsPanorama City, CA

Hello! I'm Steve Epting and I am a singer/songwriter and entertainer. I was born and raised on Chicago’s south side, but now I'm on the Los Angeles music scene.I am a recent graduate of Eastern University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music. I'm a classically trained vocalist that sings in a plethora of genres (Gospel, Jazz, Pop, and R&B). I have been singing since I was 3 and I love to work with people that want to become better singers!In addition to being a singer/songwriter, I am a vocal coach, vocal producer/arranger and an actor. I got my start singing in Chicago church choirs, advancing toward acting on Chicago’s Black Ensemble Theater stage, and ultimately performing a plethora of musical genres on many grand stages across the country. Being the son of a pastor, I have a heavy background in Gospel music. As I grew in age and musical maturity, I began to be influenced by many genres such as R&B, Jazz, Pop, and Country music. Some of my musical influences include Nat King Cole, John Legend, Lady Antebellum, Motown, and the musical element of Disney films. These influences, I believe, help to make me a well-rounded artist and performer. I love teaching music and working with those eager to sharpen their craft! I love being able to share my knowledge, helping others achieve their goals and dreams!I would love to work with you! Let's get started today!

Guitar Teacher - Deanna P
Guitar TeacherNorth Hollywood, CA

I am a self-taught guitarist that has had a life long obsession with music. From a very young age I was surrounded by talented musicians including both grandfathers, my mother and father, as well as being influenced by old recordings of my late uncle. My father introduced me to the drums early on but it wasn't until I picked up a guitar that I became hooked. Six months after playing, upon taking a Nashville tour, I told my mother that I would be attending Belmont University as a Commercial Guitar major. At this point I could barely make my way across the neck of the guitar. I spent the next four years relentlessly pursuing my passion for music and in 2007 was admitted as the only female in the guitar program. I dove head first into the music scene of Music City and began attending weekly jams at a local Nashville dive bar with Rudy Wooten of the Wooten Brothers. In early 2008, I was sponsored by RS Custom Guitars and began performing with the legendary Red Special at NAMM conventions.During that time I also played with the Nashville based rock outfit, Blackwater James. We released two albums and opened for acts such as Bret Michaels, Queensryche, Stryper, and Saving Abel. Upon graduating, I toured the southeast with platinum selling Country artist, Chase Rice. Playing on bills with seasoned artists such as Joe Nichols, Phil Vassar, Brantley Gilbert, and Love & Theft.My live and studio experience has given me a broad musical vocabulary in which I can apply in a variety of musical settings and genres. Throughout my musical career, I have earned endorsements from RS Custom Guitars, D'Addario, Pedaltrain, and Planet Waves. I have also shared the stage with Vince Gill, Brent Mason, Dan Huff, Billy Ward, Billy Thomas, and many more. I am currently writing/recording/touring with LA based rock group, Mount Holly. We just signed with Razor & Tie Records and have completed recording our debut album. "Deanna has pushed the musical limits of guitar, vocals, and performance, and captured the attention of the music scene with her spectacular talent and rare showmanship. Deanna truly is the female Slash." - In the words of the iconic Tom Zutaut (former Geffen A&R executive who was responsible for signing GN'R to the label),
