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!

Jason is very prompt with lessons and always prepared. He meets me at my level of competence and also brings me beyond my comfort zone, so I feel I am learning quickly and challenging myself. He is patient and encouraging. I would not be progressing on the ukulele so well without him!

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.

About Emily

When I was little, I begged my mom to let me play the piano. At age 5, I started taking lessons at my school. As my passion for music grew, I began composing and at age 11. I wrote my first complete song. Continuing to study and compose music, I completed nine years of California'™s Certificate of Merit music program, and for several consecutive years, I was selected by the Certificate of Merit judges to perform in multiple honors recitals. I have also been singing all my life and have been formally trained in voice. Being able to sing and accompany myself on the piano has been very rewarding, and I hope to help others to do the same! In addition, I graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Psychology with concentrations in Ballet and Literature from the University of California, ...

Wonderful Teacher!

My daughter had been playing the piano for 3 years, but she had stopped enjoying it. Once she starting taking with Emily S, she started loving it again and practices every day without me having to tell her. There's something special about Emily - she loves music so much and brings out that love in other people too. Now my daughter looks forward to her piano lesson every week.
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 ...
