About Justin

Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and t

Justin is a very knowledgeable teacher who brings of experience to this teaching. I highly recommend Justin.
Lisa
Justin is an excellent teacher!! He is a master guitarist, always punctual, very courteous and gives 100% to my lesson. I am learning classical guitar and jazz guitar with him and I am delighted with the progress I've made in just a few months. I am playing beautiful songs and before his lessons I could not play any classical guitar songs at all. Justin tailors the lessons to help me learn the songs I am excited about learning to play. I most highly recommend him as a teacher for any style guitar. Amazingly he also teaches ukulele and mandolin too! He has a degree from Cal Poly in music and guitar and has over 20 years teaching experience. If you really want to learn how to play guitar easily and quickly, take lessons with him!

James is a highly qualified instructor and was very thoughtful in answering my questions. I was impressed with the amount of resources he had on hand, such as worksheets, method books, sheet music, etc. I would definitely recommend James for anyone curious about learning music theory and/or the many instruments he plays.

Janeen has been working with my teenage daughter for less than a year. During that time, my daughter has made noticeable improvements with her singing and confidence. Janeen has also tapped in to my daughter's creative abilities and started teaching her to write her own songs. Janeen's ability to build relationships with her clients is what makes her shine above the rest. She is professional, experienced, knowledgeable, and shows great care and patience when mentoring my daughter. Singing with Janeen is more than just learning and enhancing a skill. Her mentorship also helps build my daughter's character.

"This teacher has great experiences with small kids.

My daughter, Niki, started taking lessons with Lena right after she turned 3 and has been learning with Lena for 3 months now. In the beginning, I was just trying to see how well Niki can handle a 30 mins class and how she can progress. I was so amazing how much progress Niki has made. After 6 weeks of lessons, NIki was able to perform two children rhymes with her two hands playing together in a recital, and now she has mastered to play simplified "Ode to Joy", "The Can Can" and to name a few more. So many people can't believe she has only been learning for three months at her age. Niki got evaluated by another teacher as too young to learn piano before we started with Lena. However I like to share our very rewarding experiences with you about Lena. She will pick right songs and exercises for a very young child, yet keep her challenged and continuously advanced in difficult levels. I would highly recommend her to my daughter's classmates, our neighbors and you."

"Erin is a great violin teacher for my son!

At first, I was skeptical if my son could actually learn violin on skype. Erin proved that it can work very well. She helped my son to improve the techniques and was strict about his posture (much needed!). Erin was very encouraging and patient with my son. She always wrote the post-lesson notes, which was super helpful to keep my son focused on the areas for practice.

When my son decided that he wasn't interested in violin any more, Erin encouraged him, and offered good advice for me too. I really appreciate Erin's professionalism and positive attitude!"

"My daughter started taking lesson's from Ms. Huang when she was only six years old. Judy Huang was a patient and very professional teacher when instructing my very young, yet shy daughter. The instructions were well organized and fun. We had to move away for a few years but after my return, I sought out Ms. Huang to continue teaching my now teenage daughter. I found that the piano teacher we hired in the interim was teaching my daughter how to play by ear only. Once Ms. Huang resumed my child's instructions, my daughter absorbed music theory, became proficient in reading sheet music while keeping her artistic flare. I would highly recommend Ms. Huang as she is a gifted piano teacher."
