Using method books teach various techniques to learning to properly play instrument.

About Laura
I am a multi-instrumentalist and have been teaching piano since 1998. My students' ages range from 4 to 60+. I have been a musician for the majority of my lifetime, having started playing piano at age five. As a multi-instrumentalist I teach piano, clarinet, violin and guitar. I have also taught elementary school classroom music at a private school and directed musicals for them.

I have my BA in Music from San Diego State University and I am well prepared to teach music. One of the highlights of my music education at San Diego State was the privilege of playing violin for the SDSU Symphony Orchestra, performing master works such as Beethoven's Fifth Symphony as well John Williams' Suite from Star Wars.

I also received an Associate of Arts degree at Grossmont, College in El Cajon, California, with an emphasis on music education.


My lessons consist of exercises that emphasize proper techniques for each instrument. Lessons are tailored to the specific needs of each student. I would like my students to fully understand the entire musical process, including theory. I prepare lesson content to meet the individual needs of each student.

My students have expressed that they enjoy my music lessons. I am serious about lesson content and am always seeking new ways to make lessons more enjoyable. I include parents/guardians by informing them of lesson requirements and progress, and encourage all to ask questions or make suggestions.

It is my goal to share the joy that music brings to each life. I am looking forward to meeting you.

*** Travel Equipment ***I encourage students to own the instrument they are studying, and to purchase lesson books.

*** Specialties ***
Bastien, Alfred, Dozen-a-Day, Keith Snell, Hanon, Czerny and others - piano; Suzuki, Laoureux etc. - violin; Leonard - guitar; Lazarus - Clarinet.

Together with these method books, I include personalized techniques, tailoring lessons each individual student, as well as computer games and programs.

Laura has a great sense of humor, which comes in handy when I am not doing as well as I would like. She is a very patient teacher, as well as creative in her teaching strategies. When I was taking lessons with her she was studying music at SDSU and utilized her fresh education in our sessions. Also, her at home studio serves as a relaxing setting, which was just my style.

I really enjoy going to my lessons. Laura is very patient, with great knowledge and a great personality. I am a 58 years old violin student and I want to learn more about the violin so that I can play at my Church. Her classes are fantastic and I know I will be playing in front of the congregation soon. I highly recommend her style whether you are a child, young adult or older like me. IT IS FUN!!

Mrs. Krystmas is awesome. My daughter was really intimidated trying to learn to play the flute for 5th grade band. When she started, she could get it to make a sound at all. She talked about "hating band" and how she couldn't wait until the end of the year so she could quit. Mrs. Krystmas turned all of that around in 5 lessons. Now she looks forward to going to both her lessons and band at school. She asked me sign her up for more lessons! Thanks Mrs. Krystmas!

We have had 3 months of piano lessons with Tony for my sons, ages 7 and 9. He is a fantastic teacher! Not only have my kids made great progress with learning how to play the piano, they have also made huge strides in their understanding of music. I am thrilled with how much they have learned in a short time! Getting my kids to practice between lessons was a struggle in the beginning, but this has improved over time because they enjoy their lessons so much. I told them I was writing a review for Tony, and asked for their feedback. They said: "He is nice, and kind, and one of the best teachers ever!" "He is patient and kind, he helps a lot, is very fun, and he wants me to work hard, which is a good thing!"

I've been teaching the clarinet for the past 10+ years and I am comfortable working with all age groups and ability levels.

Many of my students have participated in the San Diego Honor Band as well as San Diego Youth Symphony. Preparation is the key to success, and I specialize in coaching students for auditions.

I enjoy teaching all levels of clarinetists, from square-one up to the most serious high school students!

Music theory is an integral part of each lesson (as well as some basic piano concepts which can be very useful to woodwind players). Jazz conception and improvisation is also a specialty!

About Ian
I've been teaching woodwinds (saxophone, flute, and clarinet) for the past 15 years and enjoy the one-on-one interaction with students of all ages. Music is one of the last professions that is truly learned through apprenticeship. Having a good private teacher is absolutely essential to your growth and development!

Over the years I've amassed wide variety of concepts and materials to speed your learning process and keep things FUN. I've taught all ages and abilities: new beginners (elementary and middle school level), older students just picking up the horn again, conservatory-bound high school students, amateur professionals, marching band & drum core kids, retirees looking for a fun hobby, professional musicians looking to expand their jazz knowledge, and more. We'll start at your level and expand from there! Styles I've performed in
include classical, jazz, latin, pop, fusion, rock, funk, and more.

I encourage all my students to enjoy exploring the SOUND of their instrument and to find their own voice. Lessons include everything from reading and basic stylistic concepts, to improvisation, learning songs, playing along with recordings of your favorite players, and jazz transcription. I am a graduate of the University of North Texas Jazz Studies program and have over 15 years of teaching experience. I'm currently adjunct faculty at USD Dept of Music, Mesa College, and have taught as a clinician/coach for numerous high school and middle school programs. In the past I’ve had the opportunity to study with many inspiring musicians and I enjoy passing on the tradition to new students!

I am a beginning Tenor Sax student and a senior citizen. I have played other instruments years ago, but never a woodwind instrument. Ian has been a marvelous instructor for me. Although I had never picked up a sax until December 2014, he already has taught me how to play several simple tunes and a number of scales. His patience and sensitivity to the appropriate pace is impecable. He also keeps me informed of other activities - concerts, recordings, community events to reinforce my interest. I would recommend Ian as a music teacher to anyone without reservation or hesitation.

About Jon S.

San Diego, CA

I work with the student to develop a curriculum based on their musical interests and my own teaching pedagogy. I strongly feel that for musicians to own their education, they must have a say in what they play. Assigning method books and mindless etudes to practice doesn't have nearly the same effect asking them "Ok, what kind of music do YOU like? What do you want to PLAY? What do you want to LEARN?".

I believe that students learn best when they are invested in a subject, and the best way to get them invested is to individually get to know each one, speak to them on their level, and get them playing music they're interested in.

About Jon
I'm a professional performer, educator, and recording artist. I received my Masters in Music from New Mexico State University, and my BA and BMA from the College of Wooster in Ohio.

Students can expect to improve their technique and performing repertoire within a matter of weeks. We will collaborate to find music that he or she is interested in, plus work on exercises that will build technique and sound quality. It doesn’t matter WHAT you’re playing, but HOW you play it.

I’ve been a musician for over 20 years and played in a wide variety of settings. In lessons, I’ll draw from that experience to help students achieve their musical goals.

As a performing artist, I’ve played in classic big bands, small jazz combos, and R&B style horn sections, just to name a few. I’m passionate about classical music, jazz, R&B, and funk, but good
technique is good technique, and a proficient musician should and can jump from one style to another with ease.

Jon and I studied at New Mexico State University where we were in the same saxophone studio and eventually, the same quartet. Jon is creative and a very talented instrumentalist. He is great to work with, and his warm personality makes every encounter welcoming. His versatility and ability to perform many different styles is what makes him a cut above the rest. If you're interested in playing jazz, classical, pop, R&B or funk styles, Jon can help you achieve your goals!

All lessons are catered to the individual's needs and goals! We can go over the very beginning steps for the first time you pick up the clarinet all the way to refining your college audition. Clarinet history and terminology will be incorporated in lessons as the student is ready for it. Music theory will be incorporated for older students as they become ready to digest it and observe the bigger picture. Composition and arranging can be part of the learning experience if students express interest.

About Heather
If you are interested in learning the clarinet, you've come to the right place! I've loved the clarinet since I first laid eyes on it and love teaching and performing. Whether you're just learning your first notes or getting ready for a solo performance, we can work together to make practicing fun and efficient.

I started playing clarinet when I was in 6th grad and went on to receive my B.A. from Adrian College and 2017. I have been teaching and performing through school and after, including a tour through Adrian College to Rome.

Experienced clarinet player with 15 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of music theory, sight reading, and tonality. I specialize in classical and contemporary music, typically use Essential Elements books, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: clarinet, Essential Elements book, white board, and recorder.

About Britaney
I am a musician and educator. I graduated with my Bachelor's in Music from the University of Missouri in St. Louis in 2012. In college, I was apart of the symphonic band, orchestra, and choir. I have received training in music theory and aural singing.

My performance experience has been with the clarinet and the piano. I have played for various artist and different venues and have arranged music to fit the needs of the artist and the band. I'm able to read chord sheets as well as sheet music of different genres of music. In order to become comfortable with playing with emotion, it is very important that the foundational skills of playing any instrument are mastered first. I will ensure that students master note reading and understand music theory so that they are able to express themselves through music.

I have worked in educatio
n for the past 4 years with elementary aged students. I have the patience to work with young artists and I'm able to keep them engaged and excited to continue their lessons through different activities. I am encouraging, honest, and I am willing to help anyone at any age start or continue in their journey to grow as a musician.

Learning music can be difficult, but with motivation and drive, anyone who sticks to it can become a confident player. If my personality and teaching style work for you, send me a message and let's get started.
