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!

I have played many styles growing up but my focus has been Jazz in school. Lessons will be lots of fun because that's what music is all about! I will give you as much information as possible when it comes to learning aspects of guitar and music. We will focus on the music you listen to, and I'll give you music to add to your repeitoire based on what you like. I will teach you all of the things I have learned from teachers and peers over the years that have helped me succeed.

I LOVE teaching cello! I enjoy not only sharing my love of the music and the instrument, but also helping to expand my students' knowledge and hone their technique. My approach focuses on giving students the tools they need to become more independent musicians, so that the learning process will continue outside the lessons. This mostly consists of teaching a student how to practice efficiently and effectively, so they develop a good ear and become adept and solving their own musical problems or struggles. I will work with you to reach your cello playing goals and to enjoy yourself in the process!

About Emily

Long Island native Emily Doveala began studying the cello at age nine. She started her formal musical training at Mannes Prep, studying with Dorothy Lawson of the ETHEL Quartet. She went on to achieve her Bachelor of Music in Cello Performance at Ithaca College, where she studied with Elizabeth Sim

I'm a professional singer, actor and voice teacher living and working in NY. I work with students on building a solid vocal technique and developing healthy singing habits. Working together we will develop the skills required to hone your craft and help you reach your full potential as a singer. I believe it is never too early or too late to study voice.

I have been associated with Vanessa for 10 1/2 years; having met her as a Classmate in a Musical-Theatre Class. I was amazed by Vanessa's exceptional Talent for both Acting & Singing; her years of Classical-Training really having done her justice. Even our Musical-Theatre Teacher, a Broadway Star & Tony Nominee, commented that it is so difficult to compete with Vanessa's compelling performance! Vanessa exemplifies Symbiosis with Drama & Music--which is so INSPIRING!

As a Result, I have found myself quite often approaching Vanessa for advice on both Musical-Theatre & Drama since the time we were classmates. Needless to say, Vanessa is born for Musical-Instruction. She has always provided me with both honest and encouraging input. I especially appreciate her unique approach to channeling our Personal-Vulnerability into ART.

I therefore highly-recommend Vanessa for Music-Lessons. She will certainly evoke the best of her Student vocally, musically, and dramatically, and also develop in her Student: Symbiosis-with-Musical-Theatre!
Linda
My daughter enjoys her lessons with Vanessa that she practices the exercises all the time.
Danny
Great lessons and great teacher! Well planned lessons with fun exercises specifically designed for my goals. And did I mention, she is also an amazing singer!

We love her and have already successfully recommended her to friends, who are also really enjoying her teaching!"

"My 9-yo daughter has had Rachel as a piano teacher for the past 1.5 years. Rachel has always been professional, punctual, and an excellent communicator when it comes to things like rescheduling lessons. My daughter has advanced in piano quite a bit—I attribute much of that to the music Rachel offers. My daughter has played the themes from Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars (music she knows and is excited to learn!) along with more classical pieces (e.g., Bach). We are very happy with Rachel!"

Play-Along Strategies for Drum Techniques
