Rakeen
Some people might fare better with this instructor. More chatting than instructing. Usually telling stories trying to sell himself and talk about how great he is. Delusional ideas about your relationship. Accusatory. Takes things personally. Burns bridges. Claims to be a vocal therapist but doesn't do any vocal therapy. Can provide bad advice and medical information.
Jim
This was my first piano lesson in 50 years. It was everything I hoped it would be... intellectual, fun, relaxed... and it filled me with hope that I could finally make something out of a musical instrument I left in the dust so many years ago. Jimi is wonderful to talk with and work with. This was beyond my expectations.

I’m 80 years old and play sax in a Senior band. I signed up for several lessons with Jimi Z. to improve my tone and breathing. I think Jimi did a great job with me, and I recommend Jimi for sax lessons. Dan Ginsberg

Hello future songwriter! My name is Jonathan and I am excited to help you along your path to getting those original song ideas onto paper and into the world! I am Classically trained and have a degree in composing music. With these insights I have an initiative in qualification for writing songs as I already offer lessons in composition. I have written music for myself, for other people, and for different instruments and organizations.

You can expect to learn about chords and harmonies as well as how to use a multitude of tools and insights to further your musical endeavors. I will carefully instruct you, offering unique insights that will boost your originality and offer different perspectives and approaches to what you have already.

Tristan
I've taken guitar lessons on and off for a while, and Cameron is hands-down the best teacher I've had. He points out specific technical good points and bad points, and offers concrete suggestions and examples for improvement. The lesson material is progressively challenging, but not overwhelming, and is targeted to the student's interests, and lessons are fun and interesting. Fantastic instructor.
Tessa
Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.

I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.

I can help you write songs, from finding a melody and writing lyrics, to advanced chord progressions and the theory behind choosing what chords to use and where, how to change keys, and help you expand on your ideas. I can teach you how to copyright songs and market them. Songwriting is probably my favorite part of the musical experience.

I've been teaching my songwriting courses at UCLA extension for 16 years and at Songwriters School of Los Angeles for 8 years.

Mark is an incredible songwriting teacher! I began taking songwriting lessons with him almost a year ago and have seen incredible growth in my songwriting since then. Mark is extremely supportive and knows how to give great constructive criticism, I can't recommend him highly enough!
Roger
Mark has made such a difference to my songwriting and greatly increased my confidence. I am an example of a songwriter who does not have great skill in singing or playing my own songs. Mark has the remarkable ability to hear how the song is actually "supposed" to sound and what it is the student is trying to convey! Can't recommend him highly enough.
Jonathan
Mark helped bring my song titles/concepts to life with his wizard approach to songwriting! He embraces technique and has a methodical approach to songwriting that allows your music to reach its highest potential. He works through the fundamentals of songwriting with you in a way that is digestible; and, after just a few lessons, my songwriting improved. This understanding of the inner-workings of commercial songwriting, truly gave me the freedom to explore more of my creativity. Mark gives clear, concise, and considerate feedback. Any hesitation you have about a song will be dispelled once Mark has provided his expertise. Mark guided me at the beginning of my journey as a singer/songwriter. The skills I adopted from Mark’s instruction/feedback have led to my music being playlisted on Spotify along with providing me a sense of confidence when collaborating with other artists. I find myself returning to Mark’s lessons/exercises when I am stuck writing with a collaborator or on my own. Whatever point you are in your journey—beginner or advanced—I highly recommend taking lessons with Mark!

"I've been learning songwriting and music theory from David and it couldn't be any better. He's very professional and personable, and he makes sure to work with you, not above you. He shows a genuine enthusiasm for his students' musical interests and formulates instruction around them. David encourages questions, which creates a comfortable and effective teacher-student interaction. Between my weekly lessons, I find myself impatiently counting down the days until my next scheduled lesson. While the genre of songwriting that I've been working on with David's guidance has been contemporary Christian, I'm sure that he would be an effective teacher in any genre, whether the student were writing songs or playing them."
