About David

Born into a musical family, I found a violin in my hands at age 4. Music is my true passion, and yet it is nothing unless I can share my craft with others. I am offering private violin lessons in the city of Orange. Whether you are seeking a music career or simply want to experience the benefits of what music can provide - which there are many - I am here to assist in your musical journey. All ages are welcome as well as all experience levels. With a commitment to learn, and discipline to practice, one can expect to develop a general fluency of the instrument within 3 to 6 months. The fundamental elements required to succeed on the violin are transferable and beneficial to all endeavors and pursuits. I have a formal education in violin performance and am actively participating in

David Chavez is a phenomenal violinist and it is a priviledge to study with him.

Experience, education and extraordinary talent combined with the ability to develop proper technique, extensive knowledge of repertoire, and strength as a communicator make David Chavez one of the best violin teachers in Southern California.

Brilliant Violinist

In our lessons, David consistently demonstrated exemplary understanding of complex music theory, but was also able to impart his deep professional knowledge in a manner accessible to a neophyte such as myself. And further to his credit, he has the patience of a saint when it came to actually implementing difficult theoretical ideas.

David was exacting in his attention to the details of our practice sessions, and was also able to offer techniques to ameliorate my lack of dexterity. He noted that my physiology was likely a culprit and helped me find workable solutions to the problems.

Overall, David was dedicated, always punctual, a real pleasure to work with, and I could not recommend him highly enough to others.

David is an excellent teacher. I have worked with him for several years; he also worked with some of my own students. He is talented, reliable and very knowledgeable. He is also patient, likable and will make any student feel comfortable. I give him my highest recommendation.

About Ken

I've been playing music my whole life, but it was as a high school student when I was asked to teach the school's guitar class that I became a teacher. Since that time I've gone on to earn several awards, played in many different types of projects, and earned a Master's degree. You might have heard my music before too if you've ever listened to a podcast, TV commercials, Indy films, or played any video games. My most successful student thus far however, would have to be Jacob Tilley from the rock band Young the Giant. Not everybody wants to be a rock star though, and there are many aspects to the world of music. During the course of my musical adventure I've played with orchestras, been in rock, bluegrass, reggae, pop and blues bands, classical ensembles and more. I have also had ...

As I got older, I regret taking my piano lessons for granted as a child so I took courage to get back into it. Miss Michelle was very patient and encouraging despite my personal embarrassment of feeling like a slower learner. I also mentioned my desire to learn guitar, which then she kindly showed and taught me few chords. We would take a short break from time to time to "jam" (more like I learned) with her. Lessons were very fun and she was very easy to talk to. It was very unfortunate that I had to move away and end my lessons, but I learned so much from her in a year! I highly recommend her — she's a wonderful teacher!!

I took lessons from Michelle for a year and a half, and had a wonderful time! She took me through sight-reading, finger positioning, musical notations, etc. (basically everything for a beginner). I was at level 0 before I started and by the end got to a happy 2!

My 10 y/o daughter took piano lessons from Michelle a couple years back.
What I really appreciated was that Michelle teacher actually made each lesson fun and enjoyable. I usually could not get Tiffany to sit in front of the piano for more than 10 minutes, but with Michelle, practicing piano was no longer a chore for Tiffany.
Tiffany's improvements were really drastic and noticeable thanks to Michelle :)
Eulis K. San Diego, CA

About Eulis

Hello! Thanks for visiting my profile. Allow me to tell you a bit about myself: I have been performing as a musician for about 20 years and acting since I was a small boy. I started my musical education as a woodwind player and settled in to the wonderful world of singing over time. Music has opened me up to so many opportunities from touring the world to performing in marvelous concert halls and working with some of today's most revered artists, as well as giving me the opportunity to expand my performance through acting in various plays, musicals, television, and film. Performing has been my salvation. It has been a best friend and constant source of joy, and I share this gift with others so that it might offer them the same. After 10 years of teaching, I have new experiences to

I highly recommend Eulis. I'm an experienced singer in the middle of an album project, and I was able to take away some huge tips I was able to put into practice immediately. His ears are incredibly sensitive and can hear what's going on with you in world class form. Highly recommend!!!

I could not recommend a better teacher and person in Eulis. His kind spirit, patient demeanor, and gifted voice provides any student with a strong example of what a professional musician looks like. What most people need is someone who doesn't just paint by the numbers but who is able to assess your goals, talents and desires and match it with just the right program; you'll progress quickly and enjoy every minute of the effort. Because of his vast experience, breadth of skills and years of singing, Eulis provides the kind of musical insights that help you find out who you are and discover or refine your voice. Thanks, Eulis for all the great work we've done together and I look forward to more!

Before we get to Eulis, let’s talk me ;) I am 18 years old, and until about a month ago I had not a bit of experience in singing. At all! YOLO though, so I got online and did the searches, and immediately found Eulis. I read he had some experience performing with Disney and he had some videos of himself singing. I was drawn in by his talent and apparent, very genuine love for voice and music, just as you probably were, in that you are taking the time to read his reviews! Anyways, let me just fill you in to how much more there is to Eulis. Right off the bat, Eulis is an extremely comfortable spirit who gives off a very sincere eagerness to help you in the journey to reaching your vocal potential. Every lesson I have had, I am surprised at how easy it is to develop a skill which forces so much vulnerability from those who try to master it. Eulis creates a completely safe and fun environment in his studio were you can take risks and play with music and your voice. I feel I have his complete dedication and attention in every minute of a lesson, and even through some assignments he gives me to complete independently. Also guys, improvement is fast under Eulis’s direction. In lessons he teaches to condition the entire performer. In other words, equal focus is split between the physicality and techniques of singing and the connection to emotions in music. The combination makes you feel more like a pro than you ever thought you would! Honestly, I could not be more confident that Eulis has the talent to bring out the best of my own. Just book your first lesson to see what I mean. Happy singing!
