Marsha K. Roseville, CA

About Marsha

Hello hello! Perhaps you are reading this with both a little excitement and a little concern. Finding the right person for your or your student can be intimidating. A short introduction follows so that you know a little about me and my philosophy and make an informed decision if I am a good fit; I have been teaching music, performing music and enjoying music since I was a tiny three-year old. My first piano lessons were at age seven. I have since taught the students of former students! How fun is that? Music has blessed my life in countless ways and given me opportunities I'd never dreamed of. Singing in Carnegie Hall, Performing across Europe and teaching the best students for over 25 years has been a delight. I believe strongly that those who spend their time and ...

Ms. Marsha is such a great teacher. My son who is 11 years old is learning a lot in such a short period of time. She makes it easy for him to understand how to read notes and how to play them in such a fun way. We were just going to try 8 sessions, but after just 2 sessions, we would like to continue for more. We just love her! I'm glad she had an opening when we were looking for a teacher.

Charles is considered by many at the California State University of Sacramento to be one of the best saxophonists in the Music Department. I have had the pleasure of listening to Charles perform in the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, a very prestigious group which includes advanced music as well as passionate performers, on more than one occasion and he is amazing. I have also socialized with him outside of the music building a couple of times and he never fails to impress gentleness, humility and sheer kindness wherever he goes. Charles is a good guy and a great musician and the details of his craft hardly go unnoticed.
Barry E. Auburn, CA

About Barry

I will always consider myself a life-long student of music and drums. Practice, like performance, is an art; and given our limited time to apply ourselves to our craft, it is important to make the best use of that time. Essentially this process is about problem-solving; figuring out what physical (and psychological) barriers exist that are preventing you from being the player you want to be. When I work with you, my intent is to help carve out your own path for you to achieve your own goals in the quickest amount of time and with the least amount of effort! This involves (a) clearly identifying your goals and (b) incorporating specific practice techniques that will effectively help you get to where you want to be. In my own practice, I’ve tended to shy away from a heavy ...
