About Colin James Gordon Music Lessons

Colin James Gordon is one of the most decorated and progressive young music educators in California. He has taught hundreds of students in schools both public and private all throughout California. He is now pleased to be offering private lessons to a limited number of students.

Colin recognizes the individuality in music and in musicians. Therefore, in order for a student to really absorb the most from his lessons, he forms highly structured lessons plans tailored specifically to the students needs, while still maintaining the basic curriculum that every musician needs to know. The skill level does not matter: from beginners to advanced levels, there are things Colin can teach a student to elevate their drumming to the next progression. Equally as important, Colin always maintains a very exciting and encouraging environment for the student to grow and become their best.

Lessons are generally 30 minutes or an hour weekly.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Check the instructor's credentials. Have them send you a resume before moving forward with lessons. With finding teachers online, there is often no reference point as to how experienced or adept the teacher is, and as private music lessons are a very specialized form of teaching, you are going to want to be sure that the teacher is actually very specialized.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. First ask how experienced the teacher is (i.e. how many years they have been a teacher, how many students they have taught.) Also be up front about what you want to learn (I just want to play classic rock, I want to be a good soloist, I want to read music fluently) because when it comes to private lessons, the teacher has to be very knowledgable about the subjects that you want to learn.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I have a wide range of experience in the musical field, (from touring drummer, to music producer, to songwriter, to band director) therefore can bring a wide range of wisdom to my lessons at an individual level. I also work best in a one-on-one environment. I am very discerning when it comes to figuring out what a student needs to learn, as well as very patient and persistent in helping the student achieve that. It is a combination that has won me many accolades in the education field over the years.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. The golden moment when the student breaks through and the "lightbulb" goes off.
