Music Lessons Los Angeles - Red Pelican Music - Brian Robbins

Brian Robbins – (a few years ago)

There are a variety of music teacher stereotypes: a) The grumpy old-fashioned by-the-book piano teacher b) The disorganized, flaky guitar teacher c) The intimidating drum drill sergeant … and the list goes on.

You’ll be happy to know that none of these folks work at Red Pelican 😉

In contrast, our teachers are inspiring, organized, talented and caring, and our customer service is warm and friendly.

Lessons are individualized to the unique goals and interests of each student.  Our goal is to provide comprehensive music education, but in a fun way.  We look for ways of integrating music theory into real world examples, incorporating the stylistic interests of the student.

A quick example:

Say the task is to learn chords in the key of “G.” This could be accomplished in several ways. 1) a traditional exercise. Lots of drilling. Play the “G” chord. Now practice switching to the “C” chord. Repeat…ad nauseum.

In contrast, imagine that the same chords were taught in the context of a Beatles song. Not only would this be more enjoyable, the student would have the benefit of a real-world scenario. This is inspiring, and facilitates faster learning. Of course, the Beatles may not be your cup of tea. The point is simply to connect these kind of learning experiences to the student’s musical inspirations.

At Red Pelican Music, we have the best and the brightest – hand-picked graduates of top music schools.

The goal is simple. To provide you, the student, with an extraordinary musical experience.
