+ Morgan Reynolds, Guitar, Bass & Piano
I believe music changes the way you see the world. Music has changed my life and I love to help my students discover their own unique musical journey.
At age 5 I heard “I Just Can’t Wait to be King” from the Lion King and I was hooked! By age 9, I began singing in church choirs and performing solos. At age 11 I began taking guitar lessons. Some of the most influential bands to me as I grew as a musician were Reliant K, Switchfoot, and Skillet.
Throughout my teenage years I was heavily involved with my churches worship band both performing and singing. I loved working in this area and really grew musically as I played with other musicians.
My passion for music and desire to make it my life’s work led me to Ouachita Baptist University where I studied guitar, piano and voice and obtained a BA in Music.
One of the most influential mentors I had while at college was the dean of the music school, Gary Gerber. Gary encouraged and coached me to be more intentional concerning my practice habits. His encouragement to me in this area really took my musicianship to the next level, and reinforced the fact that if you really want something, you can achieve it!
One of the highlights of my musical journey was releasing my album during my junior year in college and having the opportunity to perform it at the student center. There’s nothing quite like seeing something you created come to life and sharing it with others.
I love connecting with my students and really understanding where their passion in music lies. I believe it’s all about students reaching their goals in music and having fun along the way!
+ Marc Mariano, Drums
I have had a tremendous passion for drums and percussion since the age of 12. As a young boy growing up in Colorado, I had a thirst to hone my skills and perform anywhere I had the opportunity.
My passion for drums led me to study with a local instructor, Marc Johnson, who introduced me to jazz and many other genres of music in addition to rock and pop. He was instrumental in expanding my knowledge and appreciation for music.
Much of my earlier performing experiences involved me playing in garage bands as well as playing in my high school bands where I was first chair in the concert, marching and jazz band as an incoming freshman.
At the age of 18, I left Colorado and moved to L.A. to study at the esteemed Musician’s Institute in Hollywood CA under drumming legends Joe Porcaro, and Ralph Humphrey ( Frank Zappa, Al Jarreau, Dancing with the Stars), as well as lesser known but highly respected drummers and other instrumentalist. I graduated with honors and received other accolades for solid groove and overall musical approach.
Over the 30+ years of my career, I’ve have the privilege of sharing the stage and recording in many different countries and across America. I’ve had the honor of performing with so many talented musician such as Stanley Jordan, Melissa Etheridge, Joan Osborne, Harry Connick Sr., The New Radicals and many more.
Music has the ability to take you on an amazing journey and I love to help my students on their own unique journey. Being able to pass the passion of music along to my students is something I love to do.
I teach many different styles and genres of music and love to discover what inspires my students to want to pursue music.
I would love to help you on your musical journey!
+ Pedro Tirado, Vocal Coach
As a young boy growing up in Puerto Rico, my parents understood the value and importance of music. At age 6 my parents started me on my musical journey by putting me in piano, guitar, and drum lessons.
Some of my earliest musical influences ranged from salsa and reggae to hip hop and rock. I was greatly influenced by 90’s music also, and loved everything from Boy’s to Men to Aerosmith.
In high school I began using my poetry to write songs. I also started a band and we rehearsed at my parents house. One of the highlights of my high school years was our band having the opportunity to play in front of the entire high school. This was a really cool experience for all of us and served to spur me on in my musical pursuits.
From an early age I always knew I could sing, however it wasn’t until my senior year in high school that I really put that knowledge to the test. I had an opportunity to sing a solo in front of the school. This was the moment I knew that music and singing were going to be my life’s pursuit. After my solo, the feeling I had was simply amazing. I loved being in front of an audience and communicating through song.
After high school I went on to study voice and conducting at the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico.
Along with voice, conducting has also been a passion of mine as well. I have had the privilege of being a choir and orchestra conductor which has been another highlight of my professional career.
I’ve had the honor of being the choir conductor for the Chorus of The Academia Disciples de Cristo, Coral Gloria in Excelsis, Orfeon Caribeno Randy Juarbe, and Opera al Fresco. I also served as the music professor and choir conductor for Academia Discipulos de Cristo high school.
I also am the founder and principle conductor of the Philharmonia Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.
I have been teaching and working with singers for over 15 years and I have had the blessing of seeing my students develop and strengthen their voice and succeed in reaching their goals in music. I have had students that have gone on to pursue music as a career and have graduated from esteemed schools such as Berklee College of Music.
I love teaching many different genres of music from classical and musical theater to pop and rock. Since each and every student is different and has different goals. I tailor my lessons specifically to the goals each of my students want to reach.
Music inspires such passion and desire to pursue it. I would love to help you reach your goals in music as well!
