What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our guitar instructors are experienced and highly acclaimed professionals, who are also on the faculties of several leading art high schools and colleges in OC. We are proud of our accomplishments, as we are taking our current guitar students on a 2-week concert tour in Europe this summer!
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Bring your guitar and the desire to learn! We'll do the rest!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Many places offer music lessons, but not all provide the necessary performing opportunities for their students. As long time international performers, we are strong believers that our students need to be on stage as much as possible. Be warned: you likely will see your kid jam here and abroad!
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing the smiles on our students' faces, when they play their first song and every one after! Also, witnessing how the small steps that they take, turn them into wonderful musicians in the end!
With only two years of piano lessons under her belt, 9-year-old Kim Gardner was talented enough to perform for the National Federation of Music. Other instruments come just as naturally to her—now in her 30s, she's taught voice, guitar, and piano for more than seven years. Along with a team of equally experienced instructors, Kim teaches students through The Music Adobe, named for its personalized private lessons that take place inside students' homes. The experienced instructors have all been carefully screened and selected to ensure the highest quality of music education and experience possible. The Music Abode's personalized approach and open teaching philosophy allows instructors to tailor instruction to each individual's different style of learning.
For beginners, Kim and the team imparts the fundamentals by honing in on skills such as sight-reading and playing basic chords. With intermediate and advanced students, they focuses on more complex symphony pieces, and suggests ways to avoid laughing at conductors when they start waving their little sticks. They prepares every student to participate in semiannual recitals, where pupils can show off their newfound chops for family and friends.
