Alex M. Bonita, CA

About Alex

I am passionate about sharing with you all the knowledge that I've obtained from over 45 years of of studying piano with some of the best teachers available in the country. I will help you to both discover that sound image that is only yours and then to work on how to make that image come alive for you at the keyboard. I promise that working together will be a fun and inspiring adventure into that most expressive form of communications which is Music. One of the best ways to judge a teacher is by the way he plays. I am a performing teacher, still studying, and will be giving my second solo recital at The Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad in February 2013 and will be playing masterpieces by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin and Liszt. You are, of course, invited to the recital or ...

Superlative singer, marvelous musician, terrific teacher! I enjoyed my lessons with Luis more than mere words can say. Not only was it enjoyable, but it was exactly what I needed to take my voice to the next level. I have improved my projection immeasurably through Luis' instruction, demonstration, explanation and exercises. I am beyond pleased about my progress and I wholeheartedly recommend Luis because of his totally professional approach.

My son is 13, and was very shy about his voice for a very long time. I had been searching to find an instructor for him, and then I heard about Luis from a friend of mine. He came over and quickly was able to befriend my son, soon they where singing together, and all within the first lesson. He is personable, friendly and above all he has brought confidence to my boy. I am so grateful for his services, more than just a vocal instructor he is helping my son to grow in his confidence all around. Now my boy is singing all the time!!!


Great Vocal Instructor!

Excellent lessons

I'm 50 years old and I have never taken lessons before and was very nervous. But Luis put me at ease and gave me confidence. I also learned a ton. Didn't know that just breathing could be such hard work! Looking forward to continuing with him and hopefully reach my goals of singing with an acapella group.

Batu has been teaching my two girls, 5 and 7 year old, chess. The lessons have been great, not only he teaches them the fundamentals, he also changes his teaching methods to match their needs. He relates them and makes the lessons fun and exciting. I'd suggest everybody to try his lessons out, not only chess.
Adrián T. San Diego, CA

About Adrián

Adrián : Born on October 17, 1975, and raised in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, México, Adrian T. grew up surrounded by the traditional music of Central America from Danzón, Boleros and Rumba, to Son and Mambo. Adrián began developing his musical ability starting at the age of eleven. He was inclined to play the tenor saxophone and the flute with an understanding of classical music and a distinct attraction to jazz, and five years later chose to take on the clarinet. His grandmother, a "Danzón Nut" according to Adrián, urged her grandson in that direction, but the young player was adamant towards a newfound paragon for himself: John W. Coltrane. 2001 was a year that would have a profound impact on Adrián’s music. While pursuing Sociology and Music Studies at The University of Texas, El Paso, he

Composition
Adrian has been a major part of my knowledge of woodwind composition. As a song writer/artist, i've hired Adrian to help score and perform on many recordings for me.

Adrian plays all saxes, flute and clarinets and i can't thank him enough for his
wisdom and instructional guidance in gaining a broader understanding for how to make those instruments work in my music.

Thank You Adrian, Cheers!!!!

Recomiendo ampliamente a Adrián como una excelente opción para tomar clases de manera particular tanto de manera presencial como a distancia. Si algo puedo resaltar de mi experiencia como alumno suyo es la de aprender con precisión y de manera dinámica todo lo que en el salón de clases no alcanza uno a comprender. Y como alumno que requiere a un maestro tan preparado como paciente, debo decir que Adrián es un excelente músico, notable maestro, y todavía mejor persona.
