Parking Lots and Poetry, Francesca's award winning album was received in 2010 to rave reviews. “Francesca’s songs have great musicality and the lyrical quality of a real poet.

We have really had a lot of fun working with Francesca! My daughter and I have been taking guitar lessons for a few months and in that short time we have learned new skills along with a sense of motivation to develop ourselves as musicians. I really appreciate how Francesca teaches with a variety of techniques in order to meet the needs of all different learners - she inspires and keeps us enthusiastic to learn. She listens to what is needed for each student and makes each lesson fresh and fun. We're so happy that we found her as a teacher and I would definitely recommend her!

My 14 year old daughter and Francesca have been working together for 2 years now. Initially the lessons were geared towards piano to build a foundation to singing and all music, and we have incorporated singing for the last year. My daughter and Francesca have built an understanding together on what to work on, focus on, and build on. My daughter is the ability to sing and play piano simultaneously, each week coming to Francesca with what she is inspired by with her own natural skills and Francesca knows how to take this to the next level. My daughter trusts Francesca and her guidance and is motivated by everything she shares. If you are looking for an instructor to motivate you to be a confident musician and not just someone who plays an instrument well, she is the one! We love Francesca!

Initially, I hired Francesca purely as a singing coach. It had been years since my last singing performance outside of my car or shower and I needed help to brush-up my technique and help me to build upon my current knowledge to grow as a singer. What I got from my lesson's with Francesca was far more than I could have imagined. In my first lesson, she posed the "genie in a lamp" scenario...if I had a genie that could grant me three wishes, what would they be. Once we talked about my goals of growing, not only as a singer, but also as a performer, songwriter, pianist, and guitar player, a door to the world of musical theory and sound singing technique swung open with such vigor, I was consumed with excitement following my first lesson. I was finally on the right path to get where I want to be as an artist.

Francesca will push and guide you as far as you need to go, but only if she knows that's your goal. She routinely checks-in to make sure we are progressing in the right direction and is a great person for suggestions (with no pressure) and to bounce new ideas off of. She is realistic, but allows you to dream-up the life you want, in regards to music. She is a God send and I am so thankful I found her as a coach.

Francesca is an amazing find and I cannot wait to see where my coaching journey leads into the world of music and performing!
Danielle L. San Diego, CA

As the creator and producer of San Diego IndieFest and Say It Records, I have a unique understanding of the industry, and love to share that with my students.

It's paramount to me that each student's lesson be customized to her / his specific goals and needs. Whether those are for personal enrichment or for professional aspirations, your lesson will be personalized according to what's important to you.

I LOVE to teach, and appreciate my wee ones just as much as my elders...those who consider themselves "tone deaf" as much as my advanced students. As far as Special Needs go - I feel we *ALL* have special needs....every child and every adult! ;)

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 €œshouldn'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 ...

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

Whether it is hip hop, breaking, ballet, jazz, tap, ballroom, dancing for a wedding, birthday, or flashmob, 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!

John H. San Diego, CA

I'll teach you different methods of songwriting, and cover what you need to take your song from living room to stage. I have twenty years of experience with songwriting and performing, including shows and industry showcases on the East and West Coasts. I have recorded four albums since 1996. Since 2011, I have performed throughout Southern California under my band name, John and the Time Traveling Bicycle.

About John

I was born into poverty in the mountains of West Virginia in 1971. My Grandparents raised me alongside six of their daughters and one son. A small house filled with 10 people meant that we never had much food or space. The environment to which I was born created a debilitating introversion that plagued me during my youth. To say I was "shy" would be a monumental understatement! Creating Artwork, coupled with my love of nature, gave me a voice when I had no words.

In my late teens I found that, by challenging myself to reach out when my introversion was closing me in, I could achieve things that seemed unimaginable to me just years before. College, travel, performing -“ they were all such impossible dreams. But those dreams just would not fade. At age 20, I was accepted to ...

Eulis K. San Diego, CA

Songwriting is a skill that is as unique and varied as the individual. Learn to cultivate your own creative voice through the craft of songwriting; with or without and instrument! Anyone can learn to write a song, and it doesn't take months or years of instruction to do it. Starting from the very beginning I can teach you the building blocks of a song, and together we can discover how best to express your personality through your music.

About Eulis

Hello! Thanks for visiting my profile. Allow me to tell you a bit about myself:
I have been performing as a musician for about 20 years and acting since I was a small boy. I started my musical education as a woodwind player and settled in to the wonderful world of singing over time. Music has opened me up to so many opportunities from touring the world to performing in marvelous concert halls and working with some of today's most revered artists, as well as giving me the opportunity to expand my performance through acting in various plays, musicals, television, and film.

Performing has been my salvation. It has been a best friend and constant source of joy, and I share this gift with others so that it might offer them the same. After 10 years of teaching, I have new ...

I highly recommend Eulis. I'm an experienced singer in the middle of an album project, and I was able to take away some huge tips I was able to put into practice immediately. His ears are incredibly sensitive and can hear what's going on with you in world class form. Highly recommend!!!

I could not recommend a better teacher and person in Eulis. His kind spirit, patient demeanor, and gifted voice provides any student with a strong example of what a professional musician looks like. What most people need is someone who doesn't just paint by the numbers but who is able to assess your goals, talents and desires and match it with just the right program; you'll progress quickly and enjoy every minute of the effort. Because of his vast experience, breadth of skills and years of singing, Eulis provides the kind of musical insights that help you find out who you are and discover or refine your voice. Thanks, Eulis for all the great work we've done together and I look forward to more!

Before we get to Eulis, let’s talk me ;) I am 18 years old, and until about a month ago I had not a bit of experience in singing. At all! YOLO though, so I got online and did the searches, and immediately found Eulis. I read he had some experience performing with Disney and he had some videos of himself singing. I was drawn in by his talent and apparent, very genuine love for voice and music, just as you probably were, in that you are taking the time to read his reviews! Anyways, let me just fill you in to how much more there is to Eulis. Right off the bat, Eulis is an extremely comfortable spirit who gives off a very sincere eagerness to help you in the journey to reaching your vocal potential. Every lesson I have had, I am surprised at how easy it is to develop a skill which forces so much vulnerability from those who try to master it. Eulis creates a completely safe and fun environment in his studio were you can take risks and play with music and your voice. I feel I have his complete dedication and attention in every minute of a lesson, and even through some assignments he gives me to complete independently. Also guys, improvement is fast under Eulis’s direction. In lessons he teaches to condition the entire performer. In other words, equal focus is split between the physicality and techniques of singing and the connection to emotions in music. The combination makes you feel more like a pro than you ever thought you would! Honestly, I could not be more confident that Eulis has the talent to bring out the best of my own. Just book your first lesson to see what I mean. Happy singing!

I started writing in 1977 and have not stopped since. I can teach you to construct a song, create lyric, the context of songwriting, and how to find the chords you hear in your head for your song-
Let me show you how to bring your songs to life!

About Gary

Hello, my name is Gary R. and I am ready to get you started on a musical journey that should last a lifetime. Whether you are just beginning, or have been making music since you were a kid, I can help you. Beginners come in all ages, so don't think you are too old to play or sing. I enjoy teaching students of every age.
I received my Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of North Texas, a University well known for their music school and famous graduates.
My teaching methods vary from student to student, as we all learn a bit differently. I will often write custom lesson plans for my students, as one book does not fit all. As a teacher, I enjoy a fun, relaxed learning environment designed to help you enjoy the process of becoming the best musician you can be.

I have had several other trumpet teachers before, but Gary is the best! He has shared with me processes to improve my playing that are literally "trade secrets" from top level trumpeters that are helping me to take my trumpet playing to a whole new level. My wife is ecstatic at how good I sound! She even enjoys listening to my warm up exercises! I find Gary to be very responsive to my needs and adept at spotting where I need to improve. I could not recommend him more highly!

Gary made an immediate connection with my 9 year old daughter keeping her focused and excited for her lessons. His lesson plans are structured yet flexible enough to get the most out of our time while still having fun. He has a contagious passion for music and the horn, we couldn't imagine having a better instructor to work with

Music Theory · In home
I play in a rock band that wanted to add some Sinatra type jazz songs to our repertoire. I was tasked to play bass with which I had very little experience. I decided to take some lessons with Gary to learn a little jazz theory and technique. He was a wonderful teacher. He focused in on exactly what I needed quickly and pointed me toward resources that I could use to improve. Despite my limited abilities, Gary was always patient and displayed good humor. When I needed him to write a bass line for me quickly so that I could take it on vacation, he made the time to make sure that I had what I needed. I enjoyed our lessons and recommend him highly. Gary is a teacher who truly cares about his students.
