I've seen Kimberly play & she is a great player ... when I got to study with her I found her lesson materials well put together, organized & full of useful music exercises which helped me go from being a seasoned player (percussionist) intimidated by the idea of learning to solo on guitar to advancing to her special ensemble class where I would solo & where I learned to handle the fear thru live playing ... she will go to great lengths to help U understand song theory by charting out chords & showing U what scales can be used for soloing ... whatever level one is at students young & old see results ... plus she put in time to chart out a favorite song for part of my lesson ... meaning she has a great ear & is able to take difficult music concepts & make the info easy to digest ... so much music so little time is how I've felt after a lesson ... thats been my experience with Kimberly as a student ... and that's this reporters opinion!
I was a student of Ken's for around eight years. When I started learning guitar from Ken I had no idea how much he would change my understanding of music and of being a musician. He gives you the tools to perform in whatever situation you come across, be it playing in your home, for family or friends, or performing onstage. His teaching style is conducive with success, as he makes learning music enjoyable while still pushing you to succeed. Ken branches your understanding of music beyond just playing, which I have found many other teachers fail to do. If you want to learn guitar, piano, drums, bass, or other instruments, you will find nobody more qualified than Ken to teach you.
Very talented singer/guitarist who can cover songs with his own original flare AND writes his own music. A true pleasure to listen and watch him work.
Ivan has accompanied me and played for multiple groups that I've been a part of and each time I've had the pleasure of playing with him, there was never a moment where I questioned/doubted his professionalism, demeanor, musicianship, or knowledge of music. I have also witnessed Ivan expertly instruct countless musicians in music theory, which has in turn enhanced their musicianship. I cannot give him a stronger recommendation as a musician, an instructor, a professional, and a person!
I have had the pleasure of working with Skip Johnson on numerous high level corporate events, private events and VIP weddings over the last 16 years. Skip is a consummate professional - onstage and off. He is an extremely talented musician, and whether he's performing solo or with his band (who are also amazing musicians!), has always exceeded my client's expectations. Skip routinely goes above and beyond to make each event a huge success. Once my clients have worked with him, they request him again and again. Skip is that rare combination of talented artist and astute businessman, who understands the importance of the details and treats every event, big or small, as if it's the most important one he's ever done. I absolutely love working with him and would highly recommend him!
My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.
Gregg is an amazing musician. He is one of the best pianists in the business and is extremely knowledgeable. Everything from jazz to gospel to funk to rock- he can do it all and he does it with SOUL! He's been playing, teaching and arranging for over 40 years and he is a phenomenal teacher. Gregg is definitely someone you will want to work with when you are ready to take your musicianship to the next level. He is an expert at theory, improvisation, arranging, and composition, as well as technique and putting together a great sounding group. He was my teacher beginning in high school and throughout college, and has continued working with me and many of my colleagues ever since. Gregg Tomlinson is a musician's musician and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to advance their musical education or to anyone who is looking for a top-notch musician for a lesson or a gig- he is the finest piano player I have ever worked with!
Steve Clark is a wonderful entertainer, superb vocalist & musician!
Joshua combines the right mixture of humor and very tough expectations to motivate my sons. Both have made a lot of progress in a very short time. Joshua is very confident in his own skill as a musician; he is truly a superb pianist, so he is more than a teacher, he is a very positive role model.
We loved having Terry play for our Coffee House. He's a talented musician with a genuinely kind spirit. You won't regret hiring him!
David is a great instructor! He is open minded about my music choices and very enthusiastic about helping me learn what I want. He has provided excellent insight on reading music and has a deep understanding of music theory, which I appreciate very much as a fellow musician. The setting is very casual and lessons are comfortable. Classes are always on time and he is responsive to accommodating any adjustments to my schedule. I would highly recommend David as an instructor for any instruments listed on his resume`.
I loved working with Matthew, he is an incredible instructor and person! He truly wants you to learn and be a better musician. Radical dude!
Mark has a passion of music and teach. Always encourage my son and he was very enjoy to get lesson from Mark. I'm strongly recommend Mark for all ages.
Danny is an awesome musician and teacher. Hands down the best I've had the pleasure of working and recording with. If you wanna learn to play guitar Danny's your guy. If you need great guitar tracks for your next recording project, Danny's your guy. Big thumbs up !
Dr. Greenberg is a wonderful teacher and a very accomplished musician. He is a very patient and empathic teacher, and is the perfect instructor for all levels and abilities. He helped me to prepare to audition for transferring to the Guitar and Lute Program at University of California, Irvine. If it had not been for his support and encouragement I might not have persisted to actually go and be accepted. He helped me to be more confident, as he is very analytic about what is holding back your best playing. His insight is very unique, intuitive, and sensitive, so I think his feedback has helped me realize subtle things that undermine my best efforts. And, best of all, you get to hear for yourself the difference in your playing. He is very good about bringing your attention to the before and after, and has taken the dread out of having my mistakes recorded. You will be very lucky to take lessons with him, as you are getting the very best instruction for whatever style guitar playing you wish to learn or improve.
I have been taking guitar lessons from Brian for a couple of years and I am very pleased. I am in my late 50s and took lessons from several instructors and learned mostly power chords and memorized some riffs. With Brian I have progressed to a thorough understanding of the pentatonic and major scales allowing me to solo and improvise. Brian is very knowledgeable and adaptable to my learning style. He has incorporated other reference materials I have in addition to recommending references he is familiar with.
We hired John as a solo artist and he was fantastic. A great voice, a great personality, and a positive attitude. A+ performance!
Sidney Swanson is an great musician and a really good person. He is dependable and committed to his clients.
Mischief made my event. We had a dance floor and the band kept it full all evening long. They had great groove, had varied song list. Marlena not only has great voice - truly star quality - but was amazingly varied in style for music she sang and she certainly kept the guys attention. If she wasn't so nice I would hate her :-) the lead guitar player clear knows his craft - his solos were crazy good and fantastic job singing. Harmony amount the members was impressive often in 4 parts! They showed up on time, were professional, interacted very well with my friends, and put on an amazing show in addition to the amazing sound. I would definitely hire them again!
