Betsy F. San Diego, CA

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, theory and performing as I share my knowledge and expertise.

I have degrees in Violin, Viola and Vocal Performance, that I earned while on full scholarship for music. I started violin as a young child with the Suzuki Method and later added viola. I began singing professional gigs while still in high school, and was the youngest member ever with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra Chorus at 17. I also have extensive experience singing in non-classical groups and bands and am comfortable ...

Betsy has been my daughters coach for about a year now, and she is wonderful. My daughter has learned so much in the past year, and now she's interested in singing, thanks to Betsy. Betsy has a wonderful spirit, she knows how to communicate on their level, and she makes them feel as though they can do anything. I also like her because she encourages kids to follow their dreams, and to do the right things, and we all know that it takes a village to raise a child. I would highly recommend Betsy!

wonderful teacher

As an adult beginner, I was very nervous about beginning violin lessons. I've been taking lessons with Sang for about 15 months now and have loved every lesson. She is patient and has helped me progress farther than I thought I possible for me. Along with technique, she encourages me to learn and explore music beyond the etude books.

Great violin teacher!!

Sang is very patient and encouraging. She's really good at explaining things and can see immediately where I need to improve (so I don't develop incorrect habits). I've learned so much in a relatively short amount of time. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a violin instructor!

Both my boys took lessons with Jordan over the summer (sax and trumpet) and they loved it! They both talked about him all week leading up to the next lesson and what they were going to learn next. So far they have both flourished in their band classes this school year! I can't say enough, he's a great teacher!

INSPIRATION!!! I have been now, taking lessons from Jordan for 6 months. Each time I leave my finish with him, I am disappointed that I have run out of time. I've extended my lesson time, and it never is enough. As I depart, I am excited and inspired to continue on to do better than the last time. Three days after my lesson, I find myself counting the days to my next lesson.

Jordan has my highest recommendation for leadership, and education. A fine instructor, and an enjoyable inspiration. He will not disappoint.
Jesse H. Del Mar, CA

About Jesse

I studied Jazz Guitar with Peter Sprague and then went on to study the classical guitar with Celin Romero. Later on, while I attended UCSD I studied with Pepe Romero in master classes. In 1982 I became interested in classic rock and founded my band, The Mar Dels. We still play all over the world for private and public events. During my time with The Mar Dels I have learned and performed many of the classic rock hits.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am interested in giving my students a solid background in right and left hand technique for the guitar. This will include finger picking technique for the right hand as well as flat picking. I would like all my students to develop a correct left hand position. This is very important to the student if they wish to continue to play for many years ...

Great teacher!

We moved to the area from aboard 6 months ago and didn't no how to find a guitar teacher for our daughter.
Take lessons pointed us in the direction of Jesse, and we haven't looked back!
Our daughter thoroughly enjoys her lessons with Jesse, who makes it a lot more appealing by introducing modern music to the lessons. I have and would continue to recommend him.

Classical Guitar
My main regret is that I did not start with him when I was much younger!

I have had the pleasure of lessons from Jesse Horner for two years. I started when I was 73 years old and never had any music training before, so I started from scratch. Jesse has been great in guiding me in the direction I seemed to want to go. With almost 40 years experience, I think Jesse has experience and knowledge of every aspect of music theory, guitars and guitar playing(also Ukuleles). He makes the lessons enjoyable and is very flexible and understanding in his teaching process. My main regret is that I did not start with him when I was much younger!

If you have high standards, you'll be pleased

Having moved from Barcelona Spain we were interested in continuing our daughter's classical guitar lessons. He is able to connect to our daughter (age 10) and encourage her while giving her good feedback. She practices on her own (without reminders) and looks forward to Jesse's visits. You won't be disappointed.
Spencer V. San Diego, CA

About Spencer

I was born in Santa Barbara, but I have lived in many states and I have also lived outside of the country. I started to play the piano at age 11, which is much older than when most children start. Once I began playing the piano I became addicted to it. Because I have moved around a lot, I had many piano teachers and learned from many different teaching styles. In college I began playing the organ and I am now the organist at St. Ann Catholic Church in Logan Heights.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am neither too strict nor too laid back, but just right! I have taught many students, each of whom respond differently to different teaching styles. Some students respond better to a more rigid style of teaching, where others need more flexibility. What is important to me is that my students enjoy ...
