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!

Although I only had 1 lesson with him so far, I can say he's a very good teacher and I had fun.

Vir is a gifted teacher. He has taught my son guitar for more than a year. He meets my son where ever he's at in his practice, attention and interests with calm, skilled focus and intention . Vir's background as performing musician infuses his teaching with an enthusiasm and creativity of practicing his teaching. We are truly grateful for Vir.

Vir is beyond your typical vocal coach. He was a huge help on things like pitch accuracy and phrasing, but more than anything, his focus on getting me to tap into and harness my inner power has already paid huge dividends in my recordings and performances. Further, Vir is an amazing person to know and his home-studio in Berkeley is magnificent!

About Robert

It is my experience that no matter what kind of music you end up playing a solid classical piano background is invaluable. I was privately trained in classical piano from the ages 5 - 17 in Los Angeles, California. My teachers were Mary Brady, Mae Gilbert Reese and Jeane Weiss. I graduated from Ha

Stop wasting your time - take Robert.

I only had the pleasure of taking piano lessons with Robert for two months since I got into Harvard and had to move to the East Coast, but I can confidently attest that he is a phenomenal teacher. To begin with, Robert brings to the table not only his classical training but also an open, creative, out-of-the-box approach. He is extremely knowledgeable and seasons lessons with fantastic facts about composers and pieces which makes everything a lot more interesting and memorable. lessons are versatile and designed to develop several key skills simultaneously. I never really played the piano before but after only two months with Robert I could read notes, develop my technique and actually play two beautiful pieces! If you are looking for a well-rounded, brilliant, cool teacher - search no more.

Stefan
Strongly recommend Andrew for anyone interesting in learning guitar! Andrew is amazing guitar teacher and is incredibly easy going. I think what’s been most impressive about Andrew is his versatility and ability to really cater lessons to bring you wherever you want to go as a guitar player.

I’ve been playing guitar on and off for 10+ years and was really stuck because I didn’t know the first thing about music theory (especially as it related to guitar). I’ve been taking lessons with Andrew for 6+ months and it’s been a great investment. Ear training is so important with guitar and Andrew has brought me to a point where I can pick up notes from songs without needing tabs. We’ve covered everything from music theory (keys, chord theory, major/minor scales, root notes, octave shapes) to blues. I can now confidently play songs from Hendrix & Stevie Ray Vaughan and licks from John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr.

I remember our first lesson I asked him, “ So how long do you think it will take for me to be able to solo along with a track?”

“How about today?” -Andrew
Nitzan
Andrew is a fantastic teacher. He is an amazing guitar player yet the nicest guy you’ll ever meet. Super professional, knowledgeable, experienced, patient, funny - everything you’d want in a teacher!
My son has been learning the guitar for a couple of years with Andrew and I couldn’t be happier with his progress. His connection with Andrew was instant and he is always excited to learn more from him.
Eric B.
Andrew is simply a fantastic bass guitar teacher. He spells information out clearly and takes time to readdress material from a different angle if you are having difficulty understanding what is being presented. He is extremely organized and shares pertinent material/documents and video clips of himself from lessons to be used during practice. He pushes me beyond my mental and physical capabilities so I can attain musical growth, all with great patience. I can’t say enough about the man!

"At 52 years old, my wife treated to lessons for Christmas. I haven't played in 30 years. Although, I have had a few lessons with several different instructors back in my 20's, I never felt any direction. I always heard 'you got it. just keep playing'. Unfortunately, I stopped as nothing made sense.
I have learned a ton from Jon in only 5 lessons. Bits and pieces are all quickly coming together. I have a long way to go, but know more already than I ever have. Jon is fun, friendly, and has a great demeanor for teaching. If he has the patience to teach me, he's the right guy for you.

I noticed a huge improvement in my learning from lesson 1, even bigger in the first 2 months and now 7 months in, I am still learning a ton. I highly recommend Akos for your bass lessons!"
