Paul is amazing!!!! He is so patient and supportive as an instructor. So pleased with my decision to hire Paul. He has a great relationship with my 6 year old and I am confident in his ability to teach her how to play the guitar. Paul is so awesome that I decided to take guitar lessons as well! Looking forward to making music with my daughter!!! Thank you Paul!!!
I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level. Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary. Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute. I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.
Omar is very professional and patient. My daughter is enjoying her cello lessons.
Cosima is a very personable and knowledgeable vocal coach. Her demeanor is comforting yet encouraging when working through those "rough notes". In the short time we have been taking lessons from her, she has given my son much needed confidence to navigate his changing voice. We are very happy to have found Cosima!
Matthew is very knowledgeable an knows how to bring the information down to my level, very basic, step by step, which is exactly what I needed. He also challenges me to go beyond what I think I am capable of and I surprise myself. I am excited about my progress and can't wait to see what the year holds. I would highly recommend Matthew for beginning to advanced guitar. Thank You, Matthew
My son has taken guitar lessons from Patrick for over the past 5 years. During that time my son has developed such an ear for music, an appreciation for the guitar whether it be acoustic or electric, and has gained a tremendous amount of self confidence! Because he can really start jammin! Patrick has been an integral part of shaping the artistic & creative talents that come with learning an musical instrument! My son has definitely gained so much more than he even realizes over the course of those years! Thanks for help in shaping my son!!!
Dr. Batista is a wonderful teacher. Students love going to their piano lessons with her. It is rare to find a pianist so qualified and professional that also enjoys teaching.
Lucas is a very talented musician and teacher. He has taught guitar to both of my kids for the past 5 years. He's patient, fun and willing to tailor lessons to the individual's needs and personal goals. My 13 year old son (who has taken lessons with Lucas since 2nd grade) has learned to read notes, play chords and how to improvise on the guitar through his lessons with Lucas. He plays in our church band and does very well.
Steve is a wonderful teacher. When I started lessons I had been playing for a while but I needed guidance on where to go from just basic chords and strumming patterns. Steve tailored my lessons to the genres I wanted to study while giving me exercises that would better my study no matter what direction I chose to go. We even started coupling the guitar lessons with banjo lessons! Steve is well versed in so many genres and instruments and on top of that, he is a friendly, patient and fun person who communicates well and is easy to get along with.
I exchanged a few messages with Laura about the possibility of taking guitar lessons. She responded quickly and answered all of my questions. Unfortunately, I am only in town for a short amount of time, and things did not work out. I definitely recommend Laura if you're looking for someone who is kind, professional, and easy-going!
Juan Carlos has been an amazing teacher for both of my kids. They think the world of him and he's made learning guitar fun.
I have been with Bella Music Studios for five years now, and cannot begin to describe what a wonderful experience I've had with everyone there. I've been with various studios and teachers and theater troupes before, and none of them have felt more like a legitimate family than Bella Music Studios. The owner, Jo Ann Maddalena, is the kindest person you could ever hope to meet. She wrote me a beautiful reference letter when I applied (and got into) a performing arts school in Hollywood. I've had two different vocal teachers there (April Orchard and Jean Carlos Lopez) and both of them were patient and talented and made me a better performer than I ever was before. I've had such a wonderful experience at Bella that Jo Ann recently decided I was ready to try teaching voice there myself! I'm still new to it, but I've had one client there, and it's been so rewarding. I practically lived at Bella Music Studios for three summers, and it's like a second home by now. I was in three shows with their theater troupe, and they were all professional level performances that I had so much fun doing. Bella Music Studios is a fantastic place, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for quality, well-priced music lessons of any kind for any age. Whether you're looking for voice, piano, guitar, trumpet, etc. you're getting the best of the best here.
I took guitar lessons from Tim for about a year, and Tim was my favorite guitar teacher. He is a very passionate teacher with a love for music. While I was learning with him he encouraged me to learn music theory and introduced me to many other genres of music to learn and play. While teaching he was very helpful and patient with any problems I had. I would recommend Tim to anyone wanting to learn how to play.
I have been following my guitar passion for 7 years now. I know what it feels like to be lost and confused when starting at first. However, I assure you that I can help you get comfortable with the guitar and turn your frustration into satisfaction.
I am a self-taught guitarist, but I have taken courses in music theory and ear training during college. I have been playing the guitar since I was 13 years old. My goal is to help a student learn scales, chords, and rhythm. I do not teach how to read music. I teach students how to understand the theory behind music and how to take a creative approach towards it. My lessons are for people who want to learn the guitar for recreational purposes.
I teach acoustic and electric guitar. I work well with all types of people. I don't have a car right now, so my clients can come to my house or I can catch the bus within a five-mile radius.
For people who want to learn basic guitar, including power chords, regular chords, how to read tabs, beginners rhythm guitar, beginners lead guitar, acoustic or electric guitar and any genre, I got you covered.
I offer guitar lessons from a pro musician of 38 years. I am a former guitarist for Freddy Fender. Lessons are given at my church, P.O.P. Lutheran in Covina which is a very comfortable place! I charge $30.00 for 1/2 hour.
I teach the basic fundamentals of guitar and bass, electric and acoustic. My lessons are to teach people the freedom and creativity of music to expand their musical talents (of all ages).
I give my full attention to each individual student, monitor their progress, and wholeheartedly want them to understand music and enjoy it in their lives. I give detailed instruction in playing the guitar and musical skills in general. I can teach others to play in various styles ranging from jazz to classical, folk and blues. I cater to individuals and if you want to become a musician rooted in the disciplines of music reading, theory, and ear training, I can make that happen for you. If you only want to physically be able to play the songs you enjoy, that is not a problem. Ultimately, students will not succeed very much unless they enjoy what they are doing. I am constantly trying to understand the students and teach them in a way that works best for them.
I teach how to act, dance, and play different instruments.
