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!

Chad N. La Jolla, CA

About Chad

I'm an easy going and fun music teacher with real life experience. I build and taylor my lessons around "Your" goals not mine. Ultimately my goal is to make your experience FUN. Want to play songs? I can get you up and running within a couple weeks with simple strategies that accelerate your learning curve and bypass all the boring stuff that may only keep you further from your goal.

My experience? I've been performing and writing songs for 15 years, with 3 critically acclaimed albums and several North American Tours. I've accumulated an abundance of wisdom and skills, which I'd like to pass on to my students. Learn from a real pro who actually makes a living as a performing musician. Specialties include acoustic guitar and songwriting.

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 ...

Excellent organ instructor

I recently started taking organ lessons, after having taken piano lessons years ago. Spencer has been great in helping me build on my past skills as I learn to play a new instrument. He’s very professional and enthusiastic. I highly recommend him as an instructor.
Sarah L. San Diego, CA

About Sarah

I received my undergraduate training in music from Pomona College and my graduate training from San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I have studied with Gaiana Mndoian, a pupil of Mstislav Rostropovich, and with Mark Kosower, a pupil of Janos Starker. In addition, I hold a Certificate of Completion from the Waldorf Institute of Southern California.

In teaching, I work to combine the instrumental technique gleaned from my musical training with Steiner’s insights about music and about working with children. Both my musical and Waldorf studies have emphasized to me the innate power, significance and benefit of sound, or tone, itself.

The cello can be soothing to a child for exactly this reason—it has a deep, comforting voice. In addition, learning to play an instrument ...

Adrián T. San Diego, CA

About Adrián

Adrin Terrazas-G.: Born on October 17, 1975, and raised in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mxico, Adrian Terrazas-G. grew up surrounded by the traditional music of Central America from Danzn, Boleros and Rumba, to Son and Mambo. Terrazas-G. began developing his musical ability starting at the age of eleven. He was inclined to play the tenor saxophone and the flute with an understanding of classical music and a distinct attraction to jazz, and five years later chose to take on the clarinet. His grandmother, a "Danzn Nut" according to Terrazas-G., urged her grandson in that direction, but the young player was adamant towards a newfound paragon for himself: John W. Coltrane.

2001 was a year that would have a profound impact on Terrazas-G.’s music. ...

Adrian is an absolutely amazing teacher, what we accomplished in just a few hours was more than I've learned with other instructors in years of studying. On top of being as studied as they come in my opinion, Adrian was so personable it was easy to communicate right off the bat. If you are looking for a music teacher, who will show you the proper way to do things musically and is as hip as they come, Adrian is your guy!

I have been listening Adrian's music for the last ten years or so.
I had the chance to met him and it was a good experience.
He has been playing with Mexicans and Americans musicians at a high level doing concerts and recording around the world.
I was surprised when I met him. Because even though he has been touring, recording and writing music with the best musician in California and Mexico. He is a simple and humble man. By the way, he also won a Grammy by his work with The Mars Volta. And of course he is a great teaching, aware and worried about your music life and your daily life as well.

He escuchado la música de Adrián por los últimos diez años o más.
Tuve la oportunidad de conocerlo y fue una buena experiencia.
Ha participado con músicos estodaunidenses y mexicanos a un nivel muy alto, haciendo conciertos y haciendo grabaciones en estudio importantes, en todo el mundo.
Quedé sorprendido el día que lo conocí. Porque incluso tocando, grabando y haciendo música con los mejores músicos de California y México. Él es simple, humilde y sencillo. Por cierto, Adrián fue ganador de un Grammy debido a su trabajo con The Mars Volta. Y por supues es un gran maestro e instructor, conciente y preocupado por tu vida musical y tu vida diaria.
