About Aaron

Hello fellow and future musicians, and thanks for checking out my profile!

To tell you a little about myself, I was exposed to music at a very young age since my dad was a musician. I first picked up the drums at the age of 5, and took piano lessons for a year when I was 6. I later played the saxophone in 4th grade, and finally discovered the guitar when I was 9. (Ironic since my dad is a guitarist and the guitar was around the house forever!) He showed me my first chords and really got me started on the instrument, and I played in several local bands in high school playing a range of musical styles from rock, blues, funk, and reggae. I really didn't take music seriously until I was in college, and began studying under Jerry Coelho, a member of the very first graduating class of ...

I took my two boys one is 8 yrs. old and the other one is 14 yrs. old and both they never had any experience on playing the guitar and when they started going with Aaron, my kids where so happy to have a nice and knowledgeable instructor, they do know now how to read notes and they starting to play the guitar. Aaron has a lot of patience when it comes to kids and teenagers that starting to want to play the guitar, Aaron will explain and teach in a manner that kids want to go back the very next day and also teaches on a way it's fun for them and not boring. I will give Aaron 5 stars because he is a great instructor.

We love Aaron! My 9-year-old daughter is taking beginner guitar lessons. He's very patient and teaches at a pace that she's comfortable with. He's helpful in correcting her mistakes and is very encouraging. This has allowed her to grow an abundance of new skills. She also teaches them to me! Through this experience, she has taken a new interest in ukulele as well.

Aaron's very knowledgeable, talented and is accommodating to our busy schedule. Plus he's very funny! I've also learned a lot in this process as an observer. I'd definitely recommend him as a teacher to anyone who is a beginner or would like advance their skills.

I started working with Aaron a few months ago. Previously, I had never even picked up a banjo. Aaron has shown a great deal of patience and expertise with me in my practice. Since I began, I have learned some basics and have gained a pretty good understanding of this instrument and how it works. With Aaron's tutelage, I have learned to play 4 - 5 songs within a 2 1/2 month period of time! I would highly recommend Aaron as a teacher/coach to anyone interested in learning to play the banjo or guitar. Not only is he an extremely gifted musician, but he can teach as well!

Best decision I've made...

Taking lessons with Mikhail is the best decision I've made in a long time. I hadn't had any formal music instruction since I was a kid, so I was a little nervous about finding the right teacher for me. Playing music used to be a chore for me growing up. But Mikhail is so gentle and encouraging, flexibly attending to my individual needs, that I feel my relationship with music is being restored as a vital part of my life. Mikhail stresses technical proficiency in a way that isn't dry and boring. He is training my hands and ears to create a beautiful vehicle for self expression. He effortlessly inspires creativity, and so obviously loves teaching. I would recommend Mikhail to anyone who wants to master an instrument or learn how to create their own compositions.

Francis is a fantastic instructor. He is very patient and knowledgeable. My friends asked me to play bass guitar in their rock band so I needed to learn fast. Francis taught me the basics and quickly moved on to tips and tricks to help me advance. I am having a blast.

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 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.

About John

I was born into poverty in the mountains of West Virginia in 1971. My Grandparents raised me alongside six of their daughters and one son. A small house filled with 10 people meant that we never had much food or space. The environment to which I was born created a debilitating introversion that plagued me during my youth. To say I was "shy" would be a monumental understatement! Creating Artwork, coupled with my love of nature, gave me a voice when I had no words.

In my late teens I found that, by challenging myself to reach out when my introversion was closing me in, I could achieve things that seemed unimaginable to me just years before. College, travel, performing -“ they were all such impossible dreams. But those dreams just would not fade. At age 20, I was accepted to ...
