My daughter (9), son (7) and myself are all taking lessons and Cris Is able to adapt for all our learning needs and makes it fun along the way too.
Derek R.
I had my first lesson today. Cris is the real deal. He is an excellent guitar player and was able to coax what little skill and talent I possess into a formidable lesson early on. I'll be booking my Son along with myself and returning. We are blessed to have someone in the Rancho Bernardo/Rancho Penaquitos area like Cris!

My daughters first online lessons and a wonderful experience! Ruben is very engaging, friendly and knowledgeable. He is easy to contact, accommodating and quick to respond to questions. Would highly recommend!
Kevin and Ella M.
My 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son have been taking uke lessons for 3 weeks now and they really enjoy Ruben's style of teaching; so do we. He provides a great combination of making it fun while also really teaching them the foundations of music. They are already reading and writing some music and they enjoy doing their music homework. Most important, they are having fun at the lessons and while practicing at home.

Matt has very advanced active listening skills and really tunes in to providing his students with a positive learning experience. Matt's passion is music, and he wears it on his sleeve. He has quit his "day job" and totally dedicated himself to music. When he isn't teaching, he's either learning or playing somewhere. Thank you Matt for being such a positive influence on Mike's life"
