About Soraya

About me, I have been playing the guitar for more than 20 years. I studied at the Conservatory of Music in France. In San Francisco, I studied and played with many great jazz musicians and teachers. I have also studied theory/ composition, electronic music, and voice. I hold an MA in Education.

I've been working with Soraya for over two years. My experience with taking lessons from Soraya has been a wonderful journey of self discovery as well as learning an amazing instrument. My schedule is quite busy and I also have a 10mo old so I don't have a lot of time to practice. However somehow Soraya's teaching technique keeps me moving forward during every class. We meet once a week and I am always excited for my lesson. Sometimes it has been really challenging to learn new chords and yet she is always patient with me and curates the lessons if she sees I need more time on something. Now I am learning a new song that I picked out and it's been so much fun. I highly recommend Soraya and her knowledge about music theory is an added bonus.

This teacher never showed up to my appointment. Her phone number was disconnected.. so much for buying 10 lessons in advance.

So far everything has been great, I am now excited to practice on my own at home because I am sharing this experience with someone. It is worth it to have someone in person and I am happy to have a caring, positive and sincere person like Mike to help me!

Very patient with this senior citizen. Looking forward to my next lesson.

David is a great instructor. He can hear what you are doing wrong and tell you how to correct. I am learning Saxophone much faster than I thought possible.
Mark M.
Good first lesson with Dave. He's a great communicator and seemed to understand my level of music experience; he knew the right subjects to linger on, and what information he could skip over, confident that I already knew it. I felt like we were able to cover a lot of ground in 45 short minutes.

Music is Fun!! So why shouldn't lessons be fun? I strive to cater each lesson to each student's wants and need and make it enjoyable at the same time. I have been teaching all genres of music to students ages 4 and up for 10 years and find ways to make any music and opportunity to learn the foundations of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. I'm looking forward to working with you!

"I’ve had such a great time doing virtual lessons with Francisca! It is always so scary and nerve-racking to start with a new instructor, but I immediately felt at ease. Her energy is welcoming and calming, and What I admire most is that she can feel when I’m not emotionally in the song but instead in my head. Thank you for pushing me to break through these vocal cord cobwebs and get these pipes polished!"
