Wonderful teacher!

Sarah is a wonderful teacher! I started from zero and she has walked me through reading music, fretting and playing melodies, and chords. I have learned so much and our lessons have opened up a world of ukulele fun. Between lessons I'm able to continue practicing the exercises, and also try new songs on my own. Sarah is very patient and so encouraging! I always have fun during our lessons! We have our lessons via Skype, which has worked out very well.

Chad T. Turlock, CA

About Chad

I have played and taught music for over 20 years. I am a multi-instrumentalist. Many of my students enjoy exploring other instruments as they learn and grow in their music knowledge. A typical lesson is in the comfort of your home. We review work from the last week, learn a new song and discuss any questions you might have. Taking lessons should be fun, challenging and full of real music. I use music to learn and grow in every lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to bring their instrument or have one at home to practice on. I provide Most homework sheets. I want my students to buy needed books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in beginner classes. On piano, I stay close to classical and jazz styles and methods. On guitar, I teach folk, and rock. I teach guitar ...

Greg D. Tracy, CA

About Greg

I started playing guitar in the 5th grade and in middle school began playing in rock groups. At the beginning of high school, I started teaching in some of the local music stores in the area. While wanting more from my playing, I started classical guitar lessons with an Andre Segovia student, Rani Cochran, and soon started lessons from Warren Nunes, a top jazz guitarist in the Bay Area. While continuing to take lessons in both types of music, I majored in Music at the local college. There I played in the jazz band and in guitar ensembles. After receiving my A.A. degree, I took classical guitar lessons with Larry Ferrara at the Conservatory of Music in San Francisco. At this point I transferred to San Jose State University and received a B.A. in guitar performance and a B.A. in ...

About Barbara

Hi Everyone,
I have been teaching for over 30 years and have loved every minute of it. In addition to teaching, I have been a studio musician and composer/arranger. I teach from either my home or off site studio and also teach online. Classes include voice, music theory/musicianship, and piano. Vocal styles include classical, jazz, musical theater, Christian, and more. I am not comfortable teaching hard rock or rap.
Thank you and I hope you all enjoy the process of learning. It is a fantastic journey that gives you a lifetime of joy.
Best,
Barbara Pinto-C.

Rachel G. Modesto, CA

About Rachel

My name is Rachel G. I received my BM in voice and music composition at C.S.U. Stanislaus in Turlock, California and two MM's in voice and music theory pedagogy at Johns Hopkins University's Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland. I have been teaching private voice, theory, ear-training, and composition skills since 2009. I have experience teaching all levels from beginner to graduate.

I thoroughly enjoy working with students of all levels and ages. There is nothing more rewarding than watching a student succeed in reaching his or her goals. I understand that each person has his or her own learning style, needs, and goals, and I will always do my utmost to accommodate these.

I incorporate both technique and musicality in my teaching. While good technique is ...
