Alex M. Bonita, CA

About Alex

I am passionate about sharing with you all the knowledge that I've obtained from over 45 years of of studying piano with some of the best teachers available in the country. I will help you to both discover that sound image that is only yours and then to work on how to make that image come alive for you at the keyboard. I promise that working together will be a fun and inspiring adventure into that most expressive form of communications which is Music. One of the best ways to judge a teacher is by the way he plays. I am a performing teacher, still studying, and will be giving my second solo recital at The Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad in February 2013 and will be playing masterpieces by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin and Liszt. You are, of course, invited to the ...

Michael P. La Mesa, CA

About Michael

I have been playing electric bass and acoustic bass for over 26 years and teaching music since 1996. I teach all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced students.

I've developed my own unique method of teaching to positively enhance my student€™s' groove, ear-training and modern bass technique. My goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician.

I attended James Madison University with a B.M. in bass and was a scholarship winner at the prestigious University of North Texas for graduate school. I've toured the world, played in 49 US states, and appeared on numerous Broadway shows, in concert, on television commercials and on Grammy nominated records.

Modern technology has a prominent place ...

Michael and I have worked together for many years. His playing (on acoustic, electric, and fretless bass) is outstanding, his time impeccable, and his intonation and technique are impressive. Michael holds himself to the highest professional standards and has the respect of all his colleagues. He's always cheerful and encouraging, too - I highly recommend him as a teacher!

I have known and been performing professionally with Michael for many years now. In every musical situation, whether playing in a rock setting or playing a jazz gig
or doing a musical theatre type show, his time feel and musical sensibilities are always spot-on and to top it off, Mike always brings a really positive attitude in all his dealings with people he works with and his students-take it from me, if you're an aspiring bass or guitar student, Michael is the real deal!

I am not a bass player. I am an orchestra contractor who has had the pleasure of working with Michael for several years. He has been my "first call" since the first time I hired him. He is accomplished on acoustic bass, electric bass and fretless electric and I have not found a style that he can't nail including classical. He is always on time, prepared and always ready to make an extra effort in difficult performance situations.
Corby S. San Diego, CA

About Corby

I grew up in Southern CA and played piano all my life beginning with classical studies at age 6. I moved to the east coast and obtained my music degree from NYU in 1995 and began teaching in Greenwich Village NYC in 1999. All the while I taught I continued to take lessons from some of the world's greatest musicians living in NYC.

I was classically trained, but ventured into jazz and pop studies after college. I played many jazz solo gigs in New York City as well as accompanied singers, performed and sang my own material at songwriter venues, accompanied rock bands on keyboards and performed classical music in the recital galas I hosted for my students.

I've played and taught all styles and have a passion for teaching and learning! I encourage students to play what they ...

Learning with Corby has been a great experience. She does a great job of making sure I'm learning scales, piano theory, as well as songs I enjoy playing. Practicing on a grand piano has been a wonderful experience as well.

Comfortable, friendly and highly skilled in instructing/playing

Corby is a phenomenal piano instructor. Her passion for playing and teaching the piano shines through in every aspect of her lessons with me. She does so much more than simply teach you how to play an instrument. She has a knack for making you understand the theory, the timing, reading notes, playing, understanding the pieces you're playing... and she seems to be able to tailor her teaching to each individual. She challenges me and its so refreshing. Her expertise in the piano as a whole is so apparent in everything she does during a lesson.
Her level of accountability and responsibility to her students has raised the bar with my own level of responsibility for practicing and learning. I want to practice not just for my own growth, but also because she seems to hold a standard of her own that I want to reciprocate. And the environment is fun, comfortable and non-intimidating.
Learning to play piano with Corby has been so beyond what I thought learning an instrument could be. I highly recommend her to anyone, any level. I've been playing for three months and I'm so much further along in my practice than I ever thought imaginable.

The Best

When I signed up for lessons, I honestly did not know the fundamentals of playing the piano. Corby carefully helped me learn from the ground up. Her kind compliance helped me ignite more and more ambition each week, and now I am understanding and playing with much more confidence. Not only does she teach you how to play the piano, but she teaches you the theory behind the music as well, so that you're a STUDENT of the instrument, rather than just a musician that plays the notes. She's articulate and remarkably organized. If you're interested in the piano, I would be baffled if you didn't sign up with Corby.

About Kyle

*WHY TAKE LESSONS*

Study after study shows that strong music exposure at young ages leads to academic success in all subjects. But the benefits propagate throughout your life - confidence, positive self-esteem, and the knowledge that working hard yields fruit. My job as your teacher is to help you or your young child along this path. It's not a stretch to see that music lessons, where you achieve success by diligent practice, teach patience and discipline.

*WHO I AM*

I'm a recent graduate of the Applied Music Program at San Diego Mesa College and a current senior at San Diego State University majoring in Music Performance. I've been teaching since 2011, and have had a blast teaching students as young as 5 and as "mature" as 65 (their words, not mine!). I ...

Great class

Kyle is an excellent guitar teacher. He is patient, entertaining, and seems to have all the natural assets of a good teacher.
He is very passionate about guitar and about music in all its aspects, and he clearly takes his job as a teacher very seriously. He was highly professional and very well-prepared for the lesson.

About Danielle

Hello Students / Parents!

I specialize in providing a fun, inspiring and safe space for each student to reach their goals €“ whether that be for the novice singer whose been wrongfully told they €œshouldn't sing,€ the more experienced singer looking to branch out into doing more with their music or doing it professionally, or the budding songwriter, actor or speaker looking to develop the talent and drive they feel within them.

I always remember the encouragement, patience and inspiration I received from my best teachers, and strive to provide exactly that to my own students. I sing and teach most vocal styles, with the exception of opera, and utilize our studio to create a supportive, empowering experience singing, writing and recording. I ...

Danielle is one of the most kind-hearted, positive women I know. I have been taking lessons with her for about 4 months now and she has really taught me a lot about myself and getting over my insecurities about my voice tone and singing in front of others. Her knowledge of the music industry has also really helped put the process all in perspective for me. Being somewhat of a closet singer, I look forward to her guidance each week to help bring this talent and passion for singing out of me!

Roberto A. San Diego, CA

About Roberto

Hello and thanks for reading. I grew up in the musically-rich state of Texas, playing everything from ABBA to ZZ Top, and I began teaching in the San Diego area about 3 years ago. I currently teach Beginner and Intermediate Guitar at Adult Education and also teach a classes to our Navy servicemen and servicewomen.

My students are mainly busy adults, so I do not use conventional teaching techniques - I focus on getting them to play songs. Most of my Intermediate Students started with me as beginners, picking up a guitar for the first time. With a vocabulary of just a few chords and rhythms, you can play hundreds of songs!

And if you need a lesson late in the evening, I usually stay up until midnight!

Mr. Roberto is a guitar teacher who specializes in tailoring class sessions for your particular guitar learning needs and strengths. My confidence in guitar playing and learning this beautiful instrument has grown so much since I took classes with him two years ago. I had taken classes before and had made some progress, now that I have learned guitar from Roberto, I just want to continue to learn more and become a great guitar and singer for many more years to come to play for my friends and family.
