Musicians Institute (Guitar)
Hi!! Thank you for finding me!! My name is Yuichiro, or "Kevin". I've been playing guitar and teaching guitar as a professional about 10 years. The genres I play are Pop, Rock, R&B, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Gospel, Acoustic, Musical Theater and so on, old school to today's music.
I have played for bands, singer/songwriters, producers, churches, musical theaters, music school, recording sessions, events etc. Musicians/Organizations I've worked/been working with include, Musicians Institute, Crystal Cathedral (TV show "The Hour of Power"), Placido Domingo Jr., DOMA Theatre Co., Josef Hedinger (Warner Music Group), Chrystina Sayers("Girlicious" Universal Music), LOONER (Avian Recording Company), Cornerstone Church, Playtime Music Center, LA Talk Radio, KIIS FM's Wango Tango, and more.
My lesson method is very simple and flexible. I teach what a student wants to learn and what the student needs to learn. Most of my students usually learn songs they like with music charts(Tab) I make with a chart writing software, Sibelius. Depends on students level, I simplify the guitar parts so that they can easily enjoy the song too. Through the songs, I teach guitar technique, music theory, finger exercises, how to practice etc. to help students developing their skills and knowledge. Students who like to learn music deeper, I teach advanced music theory, improvisations, rhythm guitar ideas, advanced exercises etc.
I promise here that you will learn a lot of things in my lessons:) Hi!! Thank you for finding me!! My name is Yuichiro, or "Kevin".

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I compose songs from scratch and make audio tracks by myself. I also use Sibelius to write charts. Since I work at Musicians Institute as one of faculty, I've helped and suggested a lot of students' composition and arrangement in a class.
