Caitlin C. Winters, CA

About Caitlin

I am a professional violinist and violist living in Winters, CA, frequenting Sacramento and the Bay Area. I have a passion for performing many different styles and instruments and want to share that with my students! Nothing makes me happier than igniting the drive for music in my students and seeing what music can do for them. I have Bachelors and Masters degrees in music performance from the University of North Texas and the Eastman School of Music, and I am Suzuki trained. I have spent most of my life surrounded by Suzuki teachers and students and am very comfortable with the method! I also love to teach with the traditional methods and am willing to find what works best for each student individually.It is most important to me that the lessons are fun! I find that everyone learns best ...

Being the parent of a 5 year old daughter, my wife and I were quite careful on choosing what we considered to be a good violin teacher, especially given the fact we would be bringing this person into our home (in-home lessons). From the beginning Caitlin demonstrated being capable of teaching a child, making every effort to make classes fun, and to encourage our daughter to practice. Her professionalism, patience and dedication were visible in all her lessons. We were quite sad to hear she was moving outside of NY. Searching for a new teacher proved quite difficult as she set the bar quite high.

In summary, Caitlin not only met, but exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend her.
Chase R. Antioch, CA

About Chase

I started playing guitar when I was in the 8th grade. At that time I was into punk, and as I got older I moved into listening to classic rock, then blues, then all sorts of jazz and jam bands, and now classical and sacred art. And my playing of the guitar has following the same trajectory: I played in the style I listened to. One common thread through all of this has been an, at first unconscious, but now fully conscious focus on the art of improvisation. Improvisation is central in my own playing, and what I deliberately bring my students to do. And this is not something vainly individualistic. Franz Liszt, Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Chopin; Coltrane, Miles; Ravi Shankar, Ali Akbar Khan; Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Clapton; SRV, Albert King, BB King: what do all of these musicians have ...

My 15 year old daughter began taking weekly lessons with Chase just 2 and a half months ago, she is already writing her own songs and plays guitar for us in the evenings.

Chase is a very good instructor, Rebecca rattles off all kinds of musical terms to me now and it's like she knows a whole new language!

During my lessons with Chase Robinson, I have learned and done a variety of things. Chase has many admirable qualities like his patience, friendliness, and positive attitude, all these things contribute to an enjoyable, informative lesson. He allows one to focus on things that are preferable to you, like learning more songs or doing more music theory. I have learned improvisation, to play songs, notes, and much more. Not only has Chase taught me so much, but has fostered more of my understandment for music and has been as inspirational figure

Chase has been working with my two daughters (ages 10 and 6) and me for a few months now. We enjoy our individual guitar lessons and appreciate Chase's ability to modify each lesson based on our progression. Chase is always prompt and organized. As a mother and a student, I highly recommend him.
Didier B. Concord, CA

About Didier

My music education began at age 8 when, after a year of pestering my parents, I got my first guitar. My self-taught forays began casually at first, until I was introduced to the likes of Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton (the Cream years) and then later, Frank Marino, John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola, and Allan Holdsworth. By age 15, it was "all about the guitar: eat-sleep-school-guitar," with many countless hours burning the midnight oil, deciphering the solos of my heroes. I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area after high school and began studying guitar under the mentor-ship of virtuoso Marc Bonilla (who has worked with such luminaries as Ronnie Montrose, Derek Sherinian, Keith Emerson of Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple). Bonilla has since moved to L.A. to pursue an ...

Didier is an Amazing Teacher!

My 8 yr old daughter has been taking lessons from Didier for the past 6 months and looks forward to her lessons each week. He challenges her while still keeping it fun and teaches her songs that interests her. Didier is a wonderful instructor who is very patient, kind, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He is an extremely talented and passionate musician who enjoys teaching and it shows.

6 Tools to Learn Piano at Home
Piano may be one of the toughest instruments to learn, because of all the multitasking required! You have to be able to read two different musical lines simultaneously, and keep track of what both your left and right hands are doing, all while your foot works the pedals. While most schools have classes to teach students band instruments or stringed instruments, few schools offer piano instruction. This means that most piano students learn how to play at home and in private piano lessons, instead
