My name is Alexander "Alex" Ela and I teach lessons in guitar and bass for beginning to intermediate students age 12 and up in the Los Angeles, CA area.
What I teach:
I provide students with a solid foundation in understanding music theory and instruction in chords, individual notes, reading notes on the neck, tablature, scales, and developing solid rhythm.
Styles of music I teach:
I am most familiar with blues, rock, jazz, folk, and punk. Lessons will vary depending on each student's musical preferences.
How I teach:
I take special care to teach students HOW to practice, which is just as important, if not more so, than what they practice.
I teach my students exactly the way I would want to be taught: with patience, with encouragement, with keen attention to their specific areas of strength and difficulty in their playing, and most importantly, with respect.
$50 per fifty minute lesson, which also covers preparation for each lesson and travel time/expenses.
Where I teach:
I generally travel to students' homes for lessons, though where you live may affect which days/times we can meet, since I will most likely be coming from Burbank.
I have been playing guitar for 9 years and bass for 11 years. I took lessons during my first 4 years of playing and Iíve spent the last 7 years writing and recording my own songs, playing with other musicians and playing live shows.
An instrument and a willingness to learn and practice. I am not the "yelling" type of teacher and I don't get angry at my students when they don't practice. However, just like any other skill, you absolutely must consistently spend time playing and practicing (even for just 15 minutes a day) if you want to improve. I therefore require my students to promise themselves, with me as a witness, that they will make every effort to spend at least 15 minutes a day practicing.
