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 ...

About Anna

I grew up in a musical home with a piano teacher for a parent. Consequently, I started learning piano and singing at a young age, and then began taking voice lessons in high school. For the last 19 years I have been studying voice and loving every minute of it! I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and Music Teacher's Association of California. I have a bachelor's degree in music education from Bob Jones University, and a master's degree in Vocal Performance from Azusa Pacific University. I also studied for 2 summers during college with a master teacher. Over the years I have performed and worked with both children's choirs and adult choirs and given private concerts. My enthusiasm for music has spilled over into a love for teaching. I have ...

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.

About Adina

Hi! I'm Adina S. I am very excited to help you achieve your singing goals, whether they be big or small! My main objective as your teacher is to help you find your personal singing voice, and use it to your greatest potential.

I have a good mixture of formal education and work experience. This makes it easy for me to pass on the healthy techniques and also be current on what to expect in an audition or creating a successful performance. I attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy with focus on Musical Theatre. I also studied at Glendale College and performed in their choir and jazz ensemble. I have received 10 years of private voice instruction with many wonderful teachers hailing from USIU, UCLA, and Pepperdine University. I have been a professional singer and musical ...

Adina is a gem. She has a magical Disney princess voice and the soul of a wise, experienced teacher. I am the Director of Music, pianist and organist at our church. Adina has been cantoring at least one mass weekly for a few years now. She is a quick study and very easy to work with. She also cantors most of our funerals and weddings. She has worked wonders one-on-one with many of our young cantors. It seems she knows exactly 'what' to say and 'when' to get the best from our young singers. I always hear immediate improvement after she works with them, even for a short time. One of our parishioners is even sponsoring a young cantor so she can take voice lessons with Adina.

Amazing teacher!

Adina is amazing! She is so great with my daughter and after only a few lessons I saw a ton of improvement. She is patient, fun, and knows how to teach children. My daughter loves going to her voice lessons and is learning tons of techniques in ways that she (as a 7 year old) can understand.

I really enjoy going to my lessons. Laura is very patient, with great knowledge and a great personality. I am a 58 years old violin student and I want to learn more about the violin so that I can play at my Church. Her classes are fantastic and I know I will be playing in front of the congregation soon. I highly recommend her style whether you are a child, young adult or older like me. IT IS FUN!!

About Tim

Since graduating from San Diego State University in 1986 (where I received my Bachelors degree in music and was the recipient of the Outstanding Graduate Award in music for that year), I have been able to be involved in so many areas of drumming, percussion(including mallet instruments like vibes and xylophone) and teaching. This includes being an adjunct professor in the music dept. at SDSU (1994-1998) and currently at Grossmont College.

From performing with international jazz giants like Art Farmer and Hank Jones, and local legends Hollis Gentry and L.A. guitarist Ron Eschete- to
performing in pop settings with my own top 40/classic rock band and backing bands like the Drifters or pop singer Peter Cetera, my experience is
broad.

I've played in successful pop groups. ...

My son Brian started taking lessons with Tim about 5 months ago. He can never wait for lesson day! I also never have to remind him to practice :-) He plays several other instruments and Tim has been able to advise him in some way on all of them, though Brian says the drums are his favorite. Brian feels very comfortable with him and says he is very supportive. He even helped me find Brian a new drum set! My son has nothing but good things to say about him, as do I :-)

My name is Chazdan Lane. I started taking lessons from Tim while I was in middle school and I am still taking lessons while in high school. The lessons have been great. I have improved my playing a lot and I have learned things I would have never though I would have learned. The lessons are fun and they help me improve a lot.
