I have been teaching music for 16 years. I grew up on the 2nd floor of my father's music store in Central PA and have been around music my whole life. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from the University of the Arts where I studied jazz guitar with Pat Martino, Jimmy Bruno, Steve Giordano, and Tom Giacabetti. I was one of the original teachers during the formative years at the Paul Green School of Rock Music where I later went on to be the Music Director of the Philadelphia and Downingtown Schools. During that time, I helped many students prepare and get accepted to music schools, ran and developed music summer camps, and organized concerts where the students performed the music of Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, and many more of rock's finest band at every major venue in Philadelphia.
I have been active in the local music scene recording and playing sold-out shows at the Khyber, TLA, Trocadero, Johnny Brenda's and World Café Live with such acts as 722, Bebek, Franzschubert, Sensi Star, Clean Equations, The Black Lodge Ensemble, Dani Mari, Ashley Phillips, and The Smash Brothers. I have played jazz at the Kimmel Center, musical theater at the Walnut Street and Prince Music Theaters, reggae bass at the Jersey Shore, and rocked out at CBGB’s. I have toured throughout the east coast and as far as Shanghai, China. I bring all this range of experience to each lesson.

My name is Victoria. I'm originally from beautiful San Diego, California, and I began my musical journey at age twelve while still back west. I received private instruction on guitar from a professional guitarist who focused on technique and classical playing. About a year later, I began playing guitar and bass in groups that ranged from church ensembles to rock bands, and even spent two years playing in an orchestra. I've instructed nearly 30 students (of varying ages) on both bass and guitar while serving as a music director at two churches and serving as a student music director at Point Loma Nazarene University. I also received a certification through The Contemporary Music Center, now located in Nashville. Here, I acquired further skills in live performance, studio work, and songwriting.
After moving to Philadelphia to finish my Bachelor's degree at Eastern University, I began playing shows in the area. I also toured with Talain Rayne and played bass on his album "Attic Lights." I then spent a summer in Nashville, interning under hit songwriter, Kate York. After graduation, I was hired by the band Element K (under Shore Bets booking agency) to be their new lead singer and guitarist. I've been a full time professional musician in the Philadelphia area ever since. I've played shows all over the Northeast including (but not limited to) Xfinity Live, The Field House, The Tin Angel, and JC Dobbs in Philadelphia; Revel, Showboat, Ballys, and Tropicana in Atlantic city; and Seacrets in Ocean City, Maryland.
I love music and the role it has played in shaping my life. I value the experiences and wisdom passed on to me by my music mentors and instructors, who not only had a meaningful impact on my music career but also immensely influenced my development as a person.
I look forward to having that same positive impact on any student I instruct :)

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Philadelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ensemble also know as Metagroove.
