About Bianca

Hello! My name is Bianca and I would like to help you enter and enjoy the wonderful world of music!

I was introduced to music at a young age and haven't stopped playing. I love to have fun when I play, but I love sharing my passion and joy even more!

I feel that my experience as a teacher has helped me grow to build relationships with my students. I don't treat lessons like Juilliard studies. I have fun with my students. Music can be a serious study, but it is also one of the most fun and rewarding. My goal is to build a good relationship with my student so that I can work with them, rather than against them, to achieve the same goal. Making music is fun, but developing a passion for it gives it the life that nothing else can.

About Jamie

I've played flute since the day I fell in love with it. When I was a little girl I saw the flute for the first time and wanted to play it ever since. I had a rough start in learning how to play the flute but over the past 13 years I've developed enough skill to be an advanced musician.

When I first started I had private tutors to teach me how to play. Then I played in elementary, middle, and high school concert band. At Sacramento State, I've performed with the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Marching Band, Concert Band, and Symphony Orchestra.

I'm currently an undergraduate student at Sacramento State majoring in Music Education & Performance in flute. This is my fourth year and I've already learned much about many instruments other than the flute. I've ...

Jay Jay W. Sacramento, CA

About Jay Jay

From the moment my fingers touched the keys, my passion for the piano never ceased. Starting as a self-taught player, I received formal training in the instrument at the University of California, Davis under the instruction of Marilyn Swan. There I played in several chamber ensembles, including a performance of Schubert's Trout Quintet. I have also accompanied recitals for fellow musicians of various instruments, including a double bass and a cello. I have also had the opportunity to work with American Bach Soloists director Jeffrey Thomas who conducted the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra in conjunction with the University chorus where I played both piano and celesta parts. It was a frightening and exhilarating experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat. As a soloist, I have ...

Great Instructor!

I really love having Jay Jay as my piano teacher. He's my 3rd teacher in my life and by far the best. He explains things the way I need hear them, he listens to my needs in those areas and finds ways to help me understand those concepts that I struggle with, and he always gives me just enough to be excited about our session and the next week of practice without being overwhelmed. I think he's great and I think he would be just as great for kids and teens as he is with this adult. He makes it fun and mixes the fun stuff with the not so fun stuff so there always feels like there is a balance.

Professional Teacher That Goes Extra Mile

Tim is an excellent teacher for my son. It is wonderful to have a teacher that is willing to meet the needs of the student instead of imposing their agenda on the student. An example of that is finding out what kind of music my son wanted to play and tailoring the lessons for that genre. This even included looking up music to bring to the lesson for a song that my son wanted to learn to play. Tim is able to explain new concepts well and can adapt his teaching to something different when a concept is not being grasp by the student. He is an excellent choice for us!

Awesome Skype Lessons

Tim is a very cool cat. He has the ability to teach for beginners or dig deep for those drummers who already have experience. If you are looking for a dependable teacher..... Look no further.

Tim is a great teacher - I highly recommend him to anyone who's looking to improve their drumming skills!!

I've been taking lessons from Tim for about a year and a half and find him to be an excellent teacher. What I like about him is that he's always encouraging but never hesitates to challenge me. It's that combination that I think helps me to stretch myself as a drummer. Not only is Tim an awesome drummer and amazing teacher, he's also a really nice guy!

Gaw is a Knowledgble, Caring and Talented Music Teacher

My 5 year old daughter has been taking vocal lessons from Gaw for the past 4 months. I am always pleasantly surprised as she continually teaches new techniques each week. What a great musical foundation my daughter will eventually have. additionally Gaw is always encouraging and supportive especially when my daughter wanders off key. Thanks Gaw for your inspired training and support.

About Matt

I have been playing drums for over ten years and counting. From bands to teaching I am involved in music and drums in every possible way. With some college experience in theory, world, and jazz music its helped round me into an all around musician. My passion is creating music and in the last ten years iv drummed on over ten albums and counting, in many different styles. While I've been in a touring act and play a lot of live shows, I still prefer teaching first and gigging second. I can teach you how to read, and write drum music, many exercises for the drum kit and snare drummer, as well as proper technique and I can help you with gear questions. I specialize in being a well rounded drummer, which means I love to study different kinds of rhythm from around the world, although if ...

Instant Satisfaction

Matt is doing lessons with my 6-year old son and from the moment they met it was magic. Matt talks to him at a level he can understand, is so patient with him and really allows for him to have fun while learning at the same time. Matt is our third instructor over the past year and he is by far the best. My son is enthused about picking up the drums again and excited when Friday rolls around.
