About Rob

Originally from Chicago, I attended Chicago Musical College for 2 years before moving to Calif. and receiving my B.A. in music from Cal. State Northridge. I also have an M.A. in Education from there. I have been a band director in public schools for over 40 years. My bands have won over 50 1st place awards in music competitions. I have been playing keyboard professionally since the age of 14.

Good instructor, goes at your pace/ability level

I've only been taking lessons with Rob for 3 weeks, but so far so good. After an 18 year hiatus from playing the flute, I decided it was time to go back to it. He's customized the lessons to go as fast as I am able to pick it up, as it is coming back to me quickly. I appreciate not getting stuck in a "set" order of lessons. He's knowledgeable, professional, a genuinely nice person and he is a very good, easy to understand instructor.

INSPIRED LEARNINGS!

We laugh a lot when I goof up and he kindly leads me to where it will be better. We have had only 3 lessons so far and I have practiced every day, sometimes more than once per day and he says he can tell. Rob is a very experienced teacher and musician.

Elisa R. Ventura, CA

About Elisa

Hello. I love to teach and I have devoted my life to obtaining the highest music education possible. Learning to play an instrument is fun but it is also challenging. My lessons consist of technique and general music training that include aural skills and music theory. My lessons are a lot of fun because I have high standards, but also maintain a light hearted atmosphere. I teach viola up until the masters level and violin to an intermediate level. My students have ranged in age from 4 to 35 years old and I feel that I can teach students at any age.

Currently I am the Lead String Teaching Artist for the Harmony Project Ventura and you will find other credentials below.

If you want to include learning to play the violin or viola in your life then I would be a great choice for a ...

My daughter started taking violin lessons with Elisa in January of 2014. She is by far the best music teacher that we've had! Elisa is very challenging but makes learning and playing fun. My 8 year old daughter has made leaps and bounds in music and can now read music after only a short 8 months of playing. My daughters bow hold and tone quality are absolutely excellent and it's because of Elisa! I would definitely recommend her as a teacher. You will not be disappointed.

Elisa is a very responsible, skillful, and sweet teacher

Before Elisa moved to Ventura, CA, she was a master student and taught in IP piano school and Kwong Kow Chinese School in Boston, MA. My daughter, Sarina, was one of her students. My daughter loves her so much and made good progress when Elisa was teaching her. Elisa made Sarina relax and comfortable so that she was enjoying the learning process; she emphasized on skill and poses, she tried hard to help the students to get to the best they could. She is reliable as you can talk with her about the timing change and make up lessions. She came to our house to say goodbye and hug Sarina before she left. She is a great teacher that you can count on and you will enjoy her teaching.

Elisa is a great teacher

Elisa taught my daughter viola for almost two years before she moved West. My daughter start viola when she was six. Elisa was very good with a young novice player - She explained musical concepts at an age appropriate level (but never dumbed things down). We were also pleased that she had high standards in her weekly expectations but always kept things fun and loose so as not to cause stress. Had she not moved we would still be employing her. Elisa is a great teacher.

Steve S. Santa Barbara, CA

About Steve

I am a professional music teacher, and teach private one-on-one music lessons for Drums, Bass, Guitar (electric & Acoustic), Voice, and Trombone.
Students are introduced to their instruments in a fun and understandable way. Technique, music theory, and reading are taught through song form, which creates a strong foundation and love for music. We are having fun, while getting the job done.

I think that the key to music lessons is the fun and inspiration factor. I remember taking drum lessons from my first teacher who had this GIANT chrome drum set and it just made me want to go home and practice. My main goal with each lesson is to get "one nugget" that the student can walk away with. Either a reading tip, or a song form, or a lick…something tangible that makes ...

Ventura Music Lessons

Ventura, in Portuguese, means happiness or a high point in life. If you’re from Ventura, California you know that’s exactly what it has to offer. This town is home to some of the best surfing beaches in the state. On top of that, it also has laid-back beach community atmosphere that most visitors love and find comforting. Yet, despite its popularity and fame as a surf destination, Ventura has yet to be known in the field of music. Do you think you have what it takes to change that? If you have a passion for music and the drive to succeed than we think we can help you put your town on the map.

Although before you hit the stage, we believe that it’s beneficial for all musicians to develop a strong foundation in music. With that said, we suggest you enroll in one of our Ventura ...
