About Jessica

Hi! My name is Jessica and I would love to be your voice and/or piano teacher! I have been studying and performing classical music for 21 years. My relationship with music started at age 9 with the Contra Costa Children's Choir and I have maintained my classical vocal studies ever since. Along with my vocal studies, I studied classical piano privately with Keith Snell for 7 years, competing and achieving high marks in regional competitions. I went on to receive her Bachelor's degree in Music at Mannes College of Music in New York City and finished my education at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where I received my Masters, receiving training in vocal pedagogy and physiology, as well as vocal performance. I graduated from SFCM in 2009 and immediately began perusing both a ...

Patient and encouraging

I'm always impressed with how Jessica is patient with our 7 year old daughter and still is able to draw her out and motivate her when she is tired from school. Jessica always finds creative ways to be inspirational. Both my husband and I drive 15 miles to be able to have Jessica teach our little girl. We think she is worth it. She has been flexible and always tried her best to work within our schedule and has even driven out to our house to cover a lesson when things didn't work out in the schedule.

Wonderful teacher

Jessica is teaching piano and voice to my 10 year daughter, and I am so impressed with her skills as a teacher. She is patient, encouraging, and inspiring, and her love for both music and teaching is apparent. She is also extremely knowledgeable about music theory and uses a teaching method that's very effective and gets students actually playing music right away, without shortchanging their long term development as musicians. Jessica is a rare find, plus she comes to our house for lessons!

Jessica is great with kids and makes music so much fun!

I have two girls, ages 9 and 6. They both take piano with Jessica once a week. I can't express enough how great Jessica is with them and her ability to adjust to their ages and their ways of learning.
Jessica is so passionate about music which is demonstrated in her teaching style and of course all her education, training, and performances.
Jessica is so wonderful in her communication - showing such support throughout the lesson and has a great ability to explain the music so they understand.
My girls are very fortunate to have such a great mentor and teacher. Jessica is a true professional who is fully committed to music. We could not be happier!

A Great Violin Teacher

My daughter has been taking lessons with Larisa for three years and has made incredible progress. She began as a viola player and Larisa gave her lessons on that instrument as well. She was very helpful in making the transition to violin. Larisa works on technique as well as musicality so that the student develops into a well rounded musician. Larisa is the type of teacher who communicates clearly so that the student is able to immediately grasp the new concepts. She is a wonderful violinist and is able to demonstrate by playing beautifully as well as explaining. Larisa is extremely knowledgeable about the different periods of music and composers and shares this in her teaching. She has an easygoing personality and my daughter immediately connected with her. I would highly recommend Larisa for your student.

Perfect balance of professionalism and passion

Larisa was not our first teacher but she is no doubt the best one. She is highly professional, she accentuates the right positioning of the hands, but the music and emotional expression is on the first place. She combines the best of the Russian music teaching tradition with very attentive and fun environment for kids. She is very sensitive to child's needs and structure her lesson very individually . Not to mention her excellent communication and reliability. She also has a very positive attitude and my daughter is always looking forward to her violin lessons. Thank you, Larisa!

Ken is an awesome teacher and an great person. He teaches my 5 year daughter and she loves his lessons and his jovial approach. Within 4 weeks, she has picked up a lot of things and is improving day by day. He is patient as you ought to be with the kids and yet persistent enough to stick to the task.

I am really looking forward to them picking up songs in the coming lessons. I will recommend him anytime and completely vouch for his credentials and ability as an excellent guitarist as well as teacher.

Ken is a talented musician, nice person, and a fantastic teacher. I wanted to branch out into classical guitar after many years of playing other styles. Ken was good at adapting to my background and goals.

About Liz

After graduating California Institute of the Arts with a multi-focus on several aspects of music including African dance, Indonesian gamelan, songwriting, recording, classical voice and piano, folk guitar, and more, Liz had the excellent opportunity to teach theater to a local musical theater summer youth program. All summer, she taught class sizes ranging from 10 to 26 students of the ages 5-10. Her initiative later led to being hired at this local community theater. Along with this theater teaching experience, she has been teaching piano, guitar, ukulele, flute & voice lessons for over 9 years. Her students have gone from knowing nothing about music to learning and performing entire pieces on their own as well as even auditioning & for agents and becoming signed artists in Los Angeles. ...

About Jeremiah

My name is Jeremiah S. I was raised in a family of musicians, so music has been in my life since before I can remember. My father, cellist of the Audubon Quartet holds the distinction of being the founding member of the 1st American String Quartet to ever win an International String Quartet Competition. Both of my brothers and stepmother are professional musicians as well leading successful careers as performers. I began my journey with cello at the age of 7 and went to my first summer music festival at age 12 and continued to attend summer festivals each summer after. I left home at the age of 17 to complete my high school education at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Northern Michigan. While at the Academy my string quartet participated and won a prize at the 1998 Fischoff ...

About Alan

Hi! My name is Alan. I'm a 24 year old guitar teacher living in Northern California. I recently graduated from New York University's prestigious Gallatin School. I studied and majored in music and it's role in building communities. I have been living and breathing music since I was 13 years old - I've played in many ensembles, taught many students, and listened to way too much music. I love sharing new music with people, and I especially love giving people the ability to play music.

I cannot even begin to explain how much of an impact Alan had on not only my guitar playing ability, but also my approach to music and life in general. His free spirit is infectious and made learning a joy. I worked with him for a year and a half when I first moved to NY for school, and ended our experience with a confidence and skill level I had not previously thought possible. Before our lessons I never had success with music; I had a tendency to get frustrated with myself and quit very easily. He taught me that playing an instrument is not something that needs to be perfect. Even during our first sessions just learning the basics he showed that music comes from the heart and any mistakes aren't wrong, they are a sign of growth and sound beautiful in their own right. Although I am so sad that he left New York, I am also joyful that he can bring his music and teaching ability to the Bay Area. I can't recommend him enough! Five-year-old, eighty-year-old, anyone, he will bring a sense of musical freedom and joy to your life.

Hired Alan to teach my son Mark how to play the guitar. I played when I was younger, but definitely not well enough to teach! Alan was patient, energetic, and downright fun! Mark was never bored and engaged with the material Alan presented. The lessons were well balanced between necessary essentials, theory, and introducing mark to great new music (as well as teaching him the music that he already enjoys).

Though Alan has sadly moved away from New York now, Mark is still playing daily, in no small part due to Alan's influence! He has improved greatly and I am thankful for Alan's inspiring instruction!
