Hey rockin' rollers! Are you ready to learn and aspire to your dreams? When I was about 8 years old my grandfather sat me down and taught me guitar. At every birthday party or gathering, my uncles and him would sit around singing and playing. Being the life of the party! Seeing them play and bring joy to my family and friends inspired me as a young boy to want to spread that same happiness and love through music as they did. I hope to bring such motivation and inspiration to you! Going on 11 years, guitar and music has been my life, and to have the privilege to pass my knowledge on and spread my love of music to others would be my honor. Through out those years I have taken lessons learning blues, country, rockabilly, and western swing. And I'll be honest I am not be the biggest scholar with a bunch of certificates under my belt, but I have the passion for music and the passion to bring joy to others. To help accomplish dreams. So are you ready? Something tells me you are not! But is anyone? So c'mon! Lets learn some awesome music together and who knows, maybe we will be great friends... and you can go on in life like, like I go on in my life and say "that guy taught me guitar, that person taught me happiness. He was MY teacher." Cause in my opinion, that is the biggest honor.

Piano Instructor - Yolanda B
Piano InstructorFullerton, CA

I came from the Philippines, a Filipina and I've studied music at the Philippine Women's University College of Music and Fine Arts. I have been studying since I was 8 years old non-stop until I went to college and finished Associate in Arts in music major in piano. I love to teach and have been doing this for 21 years now. I've been teaching some years previous to this but 21 years is when I really put my full time into it. At first I began doing private tutoring but after awhile I went into teaching at a piano studio in the year 1999 at the "Rios Piano Center" as a private one on one teacher as well as a group class teacher. At the same time I also did start on another piano studio called "California Music Studios" wherein they gave me students and I went to the student's home for piano lessons. I did these 2 jobs until the year 2003. After that I went back to my private tutoring and continued on until the present time. I've been active in playing hymns at churches where I use to go playing prelude and at offerings. I've been invited to events also to perform both classical and modern music. I'm very patient as a teacher 'cause it takes patience to learn it too. Don't be intimidated that it's hard to learn piano in fact it's very enjoyable especially when you can already read well and play your favorite songs whether pop music or classical. I teach both since students may request to learn songs they constantly hear like popular hits, maybe old songs or new. I'll teach you what you really love to play. Classical music is always best to learn too. You'll be so proud of yourself once you learn Beethoven's "Fur Elise" and Mozart's "Sonata in C". So start your lesson with me and enjoy while you learn.

Music Teacher - Sean R
Music TeacherCypress, CA

Thank you for checking out my profile!My name is Sean Roberts and I'm a professional working musician. I've been performing for over 30 years and teaching for over 17. Most of my students have gone on to become successful musicians themselves and I couldn't be more proud.When selecting a music teacher, consider their teaching style. Do they teach you the basics first or throw you in the deep end? A qualified and experienced teacher can make a big difference in the success of any student.Private instruction lets me tailor your lessons to match your goals, interests and learning pace of the individual student -- all in a fun, relaxed and musical atmosphere.

Fun Violin Lessons - Dom D
Fun Violin LessonsBuena Park, CA

Hello! My name is Dom D. and I have been playing the violin for about 12 years now. Much like any youngster, I started playing because I saw a lady play her violin live and I immediately fell in love with the sound. I went home that day and told my mother that I wanted to play the violin and, being a second generation violinist herself, could not be more proud. Of course, I was not thinking about all the hard work and dedication it would take to actually be good. Many times I felt like quitting but I could not see myself parting with my instrument. Playing the violin has brought me experiences that no normal person my age, (19), could even dream of experiencing! I have been on tour twice, I have played in two major orchestras, and I was the concertmaster of my high school orchestra. I have also played at the Walt Disney Concert Hall three times. Also, being familiar with the violin has indirectly brought me other skills such as the ability to play the piano almost seamlessly, even though I have never had one piano lesson. My love for violin started to plateau when I was in the eighth grade because I was not receiving formal training. Without proper guidance, I felt lost and unable to really take my playing to the next level. My goal for my students is to be that guidance that they need to push them to the next level and cultivate their skills and passion for the instrument. That is the only way to truly be great. I hope that you will give me the chance to push you to the next level because I feel that it is my turn to give back!
