About Chuck

I pride myself in my ability to nurture the talents of children, adolescents, and adults alike, tailoring lessons to the individual needs of each student, regardless of age, skill or experience level. I strive to bring out each student's own natural musicality and self-expression with a positive and upbeat approach. I am a big believer in getting the basic mechanics of guitar playing down first. I teach students to play with solid discipline at first so they can develop the correct Technique. Only when the basic mechanics are in place do I move forward with theory, chords and playing songs. I teach all main music styles ranging form: Jazz, Funk, Blues,Heavy Metal and Rock.

Very impressed by Mrs. V.

I recently started taking lessons with Mrs. V and already feel like I'm progressing in my piano skills. Mrs. V exudes class and elegance, and you feel a sense of comfort and warmth upon meeting her. She is very knowledgeable in her craft, and the advice and tips she has given me during my lessons has really helped me with the pieces I'm currently learning. She's very patient and takes her time with you. She also really gets to know you as a person, which I find important.

I love that Mrs. V is also a composer and knows music theory. I have been struggling with theory for years, and she has been helping to educate me on theory during my lesson. She even assigns theory homework, which gives me that extra push to learn more. I am always encouraged to take notes during class as well. Mrs. V is just filled with information and it excites me to learn things I've never know before about piano technique, theory, and even the structure of a piano and how it works.

Mrs. V always encourages students to play in annual recitals, and I am looking forward to playing in the next one. My experience as a whole with Mrs. V has been great. I am very impressed with her thus far. I would recommend her to anyone who is serious about honing their piano skills.

I have been trying to come up with the perfect words to describe this teacher but I can't find anything I feel is good enough, other than the words wonderful and amazing.The way she teaches, and just her presence alone just blows me away, and I couldn't be more thankful to have met her and have the opportunity of her teaching me. If anyone is meant to be a teacher,it would be this person. She is so gifted.. Believe me when I say, if you have any doubt about choosing the right teacher, look no further because you just found her.

Amy has truly changed my life both as a performer and person.She helped me polish my vocal technique and singing methods, in addition to acting and audition coaching. She was very instrumental in helping me pick amazing audition songs and how to really give a memorable performance, even if it's just 16 bars at an open call! Before studying with Amy, I was a bit unfocused and rusty,now I am poised and confident in my singing abilities. Thank you Amy, you are an incredible and inspiring teacher!

Amy is the perfect teacher! She encourages and infuses her students with a feeling of success that makes you want to do more and continue to improve.
I had been having difficulty with vocal confidence and Amy helped me with that immediately. From the first session, I learned things about my approach to singing that I could correct and put to use at the very next opportunity. I have now have a voice because of Amy!
She is a fantastic Teacher and I highly recommend her to students of all ages!

Michelle is a fantastic teacher! My daughter was a beginner student, just starting at elementary school, and we wanted to supplement those lessons. Wow, what a difference it has made! Elaine shows improvement after every lesson and she just LOVES Michelle. She is patient and kind, and very motivational. She has a knack for reaching Elaine and bringing out the best in her. Thank you, Michelle!

As a former student, I couldn't feel luckier to have studied flute with Michelle for ~6 years (ages 10-16). During that time, she not only helped improve my technique and skill enormously, but also acted as a hugely supportive, warm and funny presence in my life. Michelle genuinely cared about my progress and very patiently guided me through years of instruction, offering constant encouragement. She always made sure I was thoroughly prepared for every recital, music competition, or youth orchestra that I participated in, and helped me pick music that I always enjoyed playing and practicing. She was also very thoughtful and hands-on in terms of helping me choose a new flute, a music camp, etc., which my parents and I greatly appreciated.

During my time with Michelle, I felt that my lessons were excellently paced—she knew when to push and challenge me, but also made sure I was comfortable with the material, and didn't rush me if something proved more difficult. Over the years, we progressed through theory, breathing techniques, scales, playing with an accompanist or another flutist, etc. in a way that felt very natural and appropriate. Additionally, the relationship we built became very important to me as a student. There were several times that, as an overextended middle- or high-schooler, I seriously thought about quitting flute—but the idea of stopping lessons with Michelle was sad enough to make me reconsider each time. I truly appreciated how much she cared about me both as a musician and as a person, and was thankful in the end to have kept playing with her as long as I did.

Michelle is easy-going and knowledgeable, kind and talented, understanding and wonderful. I will always be so grateful for the kind of instruction and encouragement I received from her—she helped me grow as a musician in every way. Thank you so much!!

My daughter (who is now in college) was a student of Michelle’s from 4th – 11th grade. Michelle is a talented musician, a wonderful person, and a very effective teacher. My daughter really enjoyed her lessons with Michelle - it was always a bright spot in her busy week. She benefited from Michelle’s guidance outside of lessons also – recitals, entering and placing in solo competitions, and auditioning and playing for the Los Angeles Youth Orchestra. We felt so lucky to have found Michelle – she was an excellent teacher and a wonderful role model - teacher, musician, mother. I recommend her very, very highly.
Heidi P. Claremont, CA

About Heidi

My name is Heidi P. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in music, with an emphasis in vocal performance. I have a great passion for teaching opera and classical music, but I teach vocal techniques that can be applied to all genres of music. I have been apart of many operas and performances including the roles of Maddalena in the opera Rigoletto, GrimGerde in Ride of the Valkyries, Carmen in the Opera Carmen, and Chorus in Suor Angelica, and La Traviata. I have also been in the Boise Music Week Productions of Hello Dolly, Beauty and the Beast, and Brigadoon. I let my students choose what type of music they would like to sing, I don't want to force my own style on my students because I want them to enjoy what they sing! Music is a beautiful art form that is challenging but should also be ...

Heidi is sweet, positive, patient, and encouraging! I started without any experience in singing before taking lessons with Heidi and I can hear the improvement in the way that I sing. She isn't pushy and is willing to work with your own pace. Whenever we're singing or doing breathing exercises, she'll give you analogies to help you understand what you're doing more. I always look forward to her lessons and I'll definitely keep on taking lessons from Heidi! :)

Heidi is the best! From the second I walked into her quaint home, I was enamored by the positive energy she put off and the excitement she had towards helping me achieve my musical goals.

Heidi began our lessons by getting to know me personally, my current musical status, my goals with her and my goals with music in general. It is very endearing to see someone with so much passion, not just for music, but for teaching! Heidi is the fun teacher that everyone likes. She is very humble and kind, and I just can't imagine someone not getting along with her.

Her advice is ideal constructive criticism, never did I feel pressured to sing a certain way or embarrassed if I wasn't hitting my notes properly. She seems to know exactly what to tweak, what mindset to embrace, and what metaphors to use to illustrate better singing. One of these is with singing high notes, she told me to imagine my voice travelling down instead of up, and it made a world of difference!

Heidi knows that proper singing is achieved with breath control and openness in the throat and vocal area, and with this method anyone can become a great singer. On top of all this, she has the BEST price in the entire Inland Empire! If you are just starting or getting back into singing, or if you feel insecure about your voice but don't know where to start, call Heidi. You won't need to look for another voice teacher ever again, I promise. :)

About Gina

I have been teaching private vocal and performance lessons since 2004. I am a classically trained Coloratura Soprano with experience in Opera and Musical Theatre. I was trained professionally by a world renowned Opera Tenor from Greece. There are lots of reasons people take singing lessons...a dream of performing for crowds, wanting to melt faces at karaoke, not being embarrassed when singing in the shower... But the common goal is finding your voice and creating a sound you love. My studio is designed to create a space where that process is comfortable and fun! Lessons will start wherever you're at and go at your own pace towards your specific goals. My passion is for teaching broadway, opera and classical voice. However, I am also able to teach modern music as well. I have been ...

I am writing regarding a wonderful and loving music teacher and person.

Gina has made a huge difference in my daughter's life through music and singing. My daughter, Danielle used be very shy and reserved. She was not very confident and she was self conscious. She wanted to sing and not be concerned about others' opinions. Gina's passion for music and her love for Danielle seemed to make my daughter blossom. Not only is she confident, but she sings and dances proudly. This child has become a very cheerful young woman.

We are so grateful to Gina for having such a large part in Danielle's life. Both Danielle and I love Gina very much in playing such an important role.

Danielle loves music because of Gina and she has received scholarships because of Gina. Thanks so much Gina, we love you and may God bless you Always! We will recommend you to all of our friends and families!

Gina is a wonderful vocal teacher and I was lucky enough to be able to work with her at Sal's Music Studio. She is very knowledgeable as well as positive and uplifting. She made me feel so comfortable in what I was doing and confident even if I were to mess up. She never made me feel like I did something wrong. Instead, she motivated me to try to hit a note again and again until I achieved it. Anyone will love having the opportunity to work with such a great teacher and person.
