Hello! My name is Allen and I've been playing guitar for 13 years, and teaching for the past 8. I've been performing and writing since the age of 16 with bands in many styles. I'm originally from Santa Maria, CA, and I obtained my knowledge of music theory, performance, and songwriting skills from taking private lessons in the central coast at a place called Coelho's Academy of Music. Our head instructor, Jerry Coelho, was a student of the late Howard Roberts and was one of the first graduating students to who helped to establish Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT), currently known as The Musicians Institute. After dedicating 4 years of private lessons under Jerry and his other top instructors, my hard work payed off and I was given the opportunity take students of my own. For the following two years, I've managed to consistently teach 40 students per week. I decided to move forward and take my musical experience with me to San Diego, where I currently teach, write, record, and perform my music with others who have similar goals and aspirations. I am playing with two bands at this moment. One called Science Fiction Jazz, and the other Foreign Film. These bands have given me the opportunity to perform with local and big named artists such as D.J. Artistic, Gary Wilson of Stones Throw Records, The Aristocrats, Terry Bozzio, Alan Holdsworth, and Tony Levin. As a teacher, I'm here to help you with where you want to be with guitar. Whether it's rock, pop, funk, hip hop, reggae, jazz, blues, indie, folk, and country, I can help you with the technical and theoretical side of things.

I have previously taught many instruments as well as years of English. I'm an Encinitas local who has been teaching since age 16 around San Diego and internationally in several countries. I've worked with a wide variety of students from age 5 to 70 on almost every style of music imaginable. I especially love working with children and teenagers who like to "think outside the box" and approach the learning process in unconventional manners. My methods are unique to every individual student and extremely effective and enjoyable. I have years of experience as a performing musician and can pass what I've learned on to you in my ever-improving style of instruction. You won't be disappointed.

I have been composing, recording and performing music since 2000. I first started playing in 1996 on the trumpet, but it wasn’t until I got my first bass that I became a musician. Since then, music has been my everything.
I was accepted as a bassist into the Applied Music Program at Mesa College where I studied with local legend Bob Magnusson. I studied music theory and ear training and played in classical and jazz ensembles for two years.
I have been working as a musician in San Diego for the last 7 years. Most of my work has been as a bassist in a variety of styles such as blues, latin fusion and afrobeat. I also play solo acts on guitar and ukulele. I have played in cover bands, but get the most satisfaction out of making original music with friends.
I am open to music of all styles and have played everything from punk to funk, Bach to Sam Cooke. I still love to rock out, but most enjoy music that is simple yet interesting.

Hello! I'm Andrew (but you knew that) and I play guitar!
I have been teaching for just over 4 years, and have studied through both the Ubiquitous Music curriculum and private instruction. I have studied music theory and composition at Palomar college as well as privately with a graduate from the Berklee School of Music, and have studied arrangement techniques, sound engineering and reinforcement, and mixing techniques with a student of Blink 182's producer. My guitar education has been more widely varied, and includes lessons with a Musician's Institute graduate, a Berklee School of Music graduate, and several other professional guitarists in varying fields and styles.

Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of
music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's
fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I
started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the
huge, black monstrosities that people in the pre-historic used in
place of iPods), followed closely by my father's CD collection.
After a while, this ravenous desire of to know and feel music moved
me to play an instrument. After a couple of false starts with the
drums and violin, I found my true musical calling: the guitar.
On January 25th 1995, on a whim, I began playing the
guitar, and I have yet to put it down. Along the way I've picked up
a number of friends for my guitar, including the bass, the lute, the
sitar and, once again, the drums. After only a few years of
practice, I started playing professionally, in bands and solo guitar.
Live playing experience, I believe, is the most important experience
that any musician can have, in that, the most important part of music
is how it sounds, and playing in front of people is the quickest way
to learn how to play effectively. And this is what I teach; how to
be a musician, not just a technician.
