Curtis L. Sacramento, CA

About Curtis

I'm a friendly and patient person who strives to be really encouraging towards the student's education. I believe a good teacher will make a huge difference in the learning process. I was born and raised in Northern California. I first began studying guitar with Musicians Institute alumni Scott Allen. After three years of private lessons, I attended and completed my training from Musicians Institute(G.I.T) with a certificate in guitar performance. At the Musicians Institute, I was instructed by Keith Wyatt, Ernesto Homeyer, Scott Parker, Al Bonhomme, Greg Harrison and Daniel Gilbert (just to name a few). Along with learning the standard curriculum of Musicians Institute, I performed in many styles such as Blues, R&B, Pop, Rock, and Metal.

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.

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!

Delia is an inspiring teacher. I can tell she really enjoys teaching and helps students gain in confidence. I have learned a lot of songs from Delia because she is patient, very encouraging and fun. We laugh a lot during our lessons and this is a rare gift.
Teresa P. West Sacramento, CA

About Teresa

I was born into a family of musicians. We must have had every style of music floating around every family gathering. I would roam with delight among the Mariachis, Rockers and R&B singers and musicians in my family. As early as 3 or 4 years old, in an effort to get me to quit bugging them, they began to invite me to sing with them.... at least that way I wasn't twirling around knocking down their equipment, or asking a bunch of questions while they were rehearsing or jamming. Music was always and continues to be part of my existence, as normal to me as breathing. I love to sing and enjoy sharing that passion with others. It makes my day to see my students grow in their talents and confidence.

From beginners who just want to sing for fun to the more experienced vocalists, ...

I am very lucky to have Teresa as my vocal teacher. Her passion for music is contagious and when she sings, her soul comes through. She's patient, encouraging and energizing. I love lessons with her, she truly cares for all of her students and she adjusts the lessons based on how comfortable you feel. Not only is she a great teacher but she also has an amazing personality and a tremendous amount of energy.

Within a few months, my vocal range has extended and I learned how to make my voice sound more powerful. Vocal training really doesn't get any better than this!

Teresa is an encourager! She loves what she does and that truly comes through as she works with each student. She believes that every student has a gift to sing and will help that student realize his/her talent. I highly recommend Teresa as voice teacher.

Wow! Nothing but an amazing experience with Teresa! I had absolutely zero past singing history and in just a couple months I'm comfortable singing in church and in front of other people. She's quick to adjust to my needs, like if one exercise isn't working for me she'll come up with a new one that works better. I like that we spend part of our time doing exercises and the other part we sing songs. She has slowly but surely weaned me off singing with her so that I sing by myself now. She's always encouraging and uses kind words even when she's giving me ways to improve. Teresa is flexible with my schedule too which I really appreciate. I never thought singing would be so much fun!
