About Judy

I started taking music lessons at the age of 9. It began playing in the church and then I taught lessons in my home at the age of 16. I went on to attend and graduate from Christian Heritage College (now called San Diego Christian College) with a Bachelors Degree in Music and Business. I am now the Director of the Music Department at San Diego Young Artists Music Academy. I direct two youth and children choirs, a male chorus and a great adult choir. I also sing with the Voices of Prayze who travel with Jason Mraz from time to time. As a singer, pianist and as a teacher, I specialize in Gospel piano & vocal technique and repertoire. I also have a great deal of experience in Pop, R&B, and Classical so I am able to help students excel in these genres as well. *** Lesson Details *** As your ...

My daughter started piano as a beginner about a year ago with Judy. She LOVES going to her lessons and has done really well with the piano. Judy is a WONDERFUL teacher always encouraging my daughter and making learning fun! Since my mother was a piano teacher, I wanted my daughter to have strong background in theory. Judy is certainly giving her that and I am thrilled! I am very pleased!

I have taken voice lessons from Ms. Judy 5 years and I now am a lead vocalist at my church and have so much confidence with my capabilities now. She is the best teacher I've ever had and I recommend her to anyone ready to reach that next level in their skills no matter beginning or advanced.

About Alex

I am passionate about sharing with you all the knowledge that I've obtained from over 45 years of of studying piano with some of the best teachers available in the country. I will help you to both discover that sound image that is only yours and then to work on how to make that image come alive for you at the keyboard. I promise that working together will be a fun and inspiring adventure into that most expressive form of communications which is Music. One of the best ways to judge a teacher is by the way he plays. I am a performing teacher, still studying, and will be giving my second solo recital at The Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad in February 2013 and will be playing masterpieces by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin and Liszt. You are, of course, invited to the recital or ...

About Michael

I have been playing electric bass and acoustic bass for over 26 years and teaching music since 1996. I teach all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced students. I've developed my own unique method of teaching to positively enhance my student€™s' groove, ear-training and modern bass technique. My goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician. I attended James Madison University with a B.M. in bass and was a scholarship winner at the prestigious University of North Texas for graduate school. I've toured the world, played in 49 US states, and appeared on numerous Broadway shows, in concert, on television commercials and on Grammy nominated records. Modern technology has a prominent place in my studio. My ...

Michael and I have worked together for many years. His playing (on acoustic, electric, and fretless bass) is outstanding, his time impeccable, and his intonation and technique are impressive. Michael holds himself to the highest professional standards and has the respect of all his colleagues. He's always cheerful and encouraging, too - I highly recommend him as a teacher!

I have known and been performing professionally with Michael for many years now. In every musical situation, whether playing in a rock setting or playing a jazz gig
or doing a musical theatre type show, his time feel and musical sensibilities are always spot-on and to top it off, Mike always brings a really positive attitude in all his dealings with people he works with and his students-take it from me, if you're an aspiring bass or guitar student, Michael is the real deal!

I am not a bass player. I am an orchestra contractor who has had the pleasure of working with Michael for several years. He has been my "first call" since the first time I hired him. He is accomplished on acoustic bass, electric bass and fretless electric and I have not found a style that he can't nail including classical. He is always on time, prepared and always ready to make an extra effort in difficult performance situations.

About Danielle

Hello Students / Parents! I specialize in providing a fun, inspiring and safe space for each student to reach their goals – whether that be for the novice singer whose been wrongfully told they “shouldn't sing,” the more experienced singer looking to branch out into doing more with their music or doing it professionally, or the budding songwriter, actor or speaker looking to develop the talent and drive they feel within them. I always remember the encouragement, patience and inspiration I received from my best teachers, and strive to provide exactly that to my own students. I sing and teach most vocal styles, with the exception of opera, and utilize our studio to create a supportive, empowering experience singing, writing and recording. I absolutely love to teach both children

Danielle is one of the most kind-hearted, positive women I know. I have been taking lessons with her for about 4 months now and she has really taught me a lot about myself and getting over my insecurities about my voice tone and singing in front of others. Her knowledge of the music industry has also really helped put the process all in perspective for me. Being somewhat of a closet singer, I look forward to her guidance each week to help bring this talent and passion for singing out of me!

About Ferlyn

My Teaching Philosophy: "Everyone is capable of dancing, playing an instrument, and understanding music & art performance; it is the desire, drive, determination, dedication and discipline instilled within a person and the guidance of the 3 Be3ts Method that will bring these abilities to light." - Ferlyn I believe each and every person has a unique brand of movement, understanding of music, and learning style for any dance form or instrument. Whether it is hip hop, breaking, ballet, jazz, tap, ballroom, dancing for a wedding, birthday, or flash mob, playing the piano, singing or even learning the theory of music or dance, I make sure to bring out the best quality within your learning, expand that knowledge and encourage you to become your fullest potential as my student.

I was able to book incredible dance lessons with Ferlyn at the last minute for my friends who needed dance lessons for their wedding. Here is what they had to say:

"We had a little over a week before our wedding and needed to figure out our first dance. We went to Ferlyn for dance lessons. In 5 sessions we had our first dance down! She helped us build confidence in our dance. She is extremely professional and helpful. She allowed us to change up some moves and suggested new moves that would improve our style. We learned a lot of new techniques with great insight. Our first dance went really well and we definitely recommend her!" - Dang & Niki

I've received glowing reviews from them about that experience ever since, and they'll be cherishing that memory forever. I will continue to recommend Ferlyn for my other friends from now on! She won't let you down!
