Nick coached my daughter, Ann, through her South Bay Teen Idol Competition, in which she was a finalist. Ann was competing against singers with more years of experience, but the superior quality of Nick's instruction enabled her to be competitive.

About Cindy

Regardless of where your musical interests lie, I can help you improve your skills! Growing up, I fell in love with playing and singing all styles of music! I've delved into classical, jazz, R&B, soul, gospel, reggae, soca, pop and musical theater, and I can teach you how to apply proper technique to the genre(s) of your choice!

If you're looking to become a better singer, we will focus on finding the beauty and power in your voice in a healthy manner. Vocal health is an important component of everything I teach, and I work to eliminate strain and vocal fatigue. We will work on balancing your vocal registers to give you control over the troublesome middle range. With a healthy foundation in place, we will fine tune your skills by addressing pitch accuracy, vocal control, phrasing, dynamics, expression and microphone technique.

If y

ou're interested in playing piano, you will learn how to read music and/or play by ear. You'll learn scales, chords, arpeggios, sight-reading, and basic music theory. For singers who are interested in piano, I've developed a great technique to teach you how to accompany yourself.

For songwriters, I can help you write stronger lyrics and set them to music appropriately.

In general, I'm pretty upbeat and fun. However, I expect you to practice. When you practice, you hear and feel the difference and everyone's happy! If you don't practice, you'll remain in the same place, and it's frustrating for everyone. :( Please, please, please practice! :)

My degree in music education and wide range of experience allows me to accommodate different learning styles. I have a knack for breaking down seemingly difficult or mysterious concepts in a way that's easy to understand. I also understand the demands of being a full time musician, and can offer advice to students who are interested in going that route.

I would love to help you enhance your enjoyment of music by making it fun and easy for you to learn!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano
Yamaha keyboard
Music Stand
Full length mirror
Library of great music
Music theory workbooks
Manuscript paper

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Jazz, R&B, Musical Theater, Gospel, Pop

I am excited about my teacher and my lesson. Cindy was not only patient but she explained things to me so simply. I found it quicker and easier to understand because of the way she explained things to me than when I have had explanations by my last two teachers. She is cheerful, friendly and has a beautiful spirit.
I am also very happy her location is convenient and not far from my home. THANK YOU!!

About Molly

​ In 2004, I graduated cum laude with a bachelor of music in Music Education. Specializing in voice and violin, I studied with Dr. Youngsuck Kim, Dr. Kenneth Sarch and Dr. Adrian Bryttan. I have also trained with the following vocal teachers after college- Melanie Galiardo , Greg Enriquez, Linda Balliro, and the amazing Seth Riggs.
As a voice teacher, I have spent decades learning and studying techniques that allow the voice to stay relaxed and connected.

Learning how to free your voice and free your body while singing will enable you to stay connected with your voice and find joy in singing. I love that every voice is unique. My goal as a teacher is to support each student in finding the power and uniqueness of their sound. Discovering the power of your voice builds confidence and gives you the tools and ability to sing your best.



This holistic approach focuses on whole body experience. As each part of our body aligns with one another, it supports and frees the voice. Understanding and releasing any tension that may be present in the body is explored in lessons.

You will learn warm-ups that will train your vocal cords to connect. You will learn to relax your larynx while singing. Most importantly, you will learn and understand the difference between chest voice, mix voice, and head voice- essential for singing flawlessly thru your bridges.

As you free your voice, you will find greater ease of singing and speaking and discover the joy of singing.

About Jesse

Music lessons were such a chore in my childhood. My mother drudgingly dragged me to lessons every week and forced me to practice at least once a week before my next lesson. I soon met a new teacher who offered a different perspective and genuinely made playing music fun.

I can honestly say that it changed my life.

I wouldn't come to understand how until much later. I couldn't have even imagined becoming a professional musician until college but I was certainly given the tools to be successful in whatever I pursued living in such a demanding and competitive world. Self-confidence, active critical thinking skills, consistent work ethic, maintaining a healthy imagination, a lifelong appreciation for the arts. These all stem from my time in lessons and later my career in music.

As a professional musician in the San Diego and Los A

ngeles area, I perform regularly with many different music groups and solo artists including Frankie J, San Diego Symphony, San Diego Winds, Sure Fire Soul Ensemble and many more. I have also coached the band programs at Helix, Hoover, Del Norte and Rancho Buena Vista High Schools on all woodwinds.

Originally a classically-trained saxophonist (concert band, orchestral, solo literature), I currently hold a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Music emphasis in Jazz from California Institute of the Arts and Bachelors of Music degree in Jazz Studies from San Diego State University. I specialize in teaching intermediate and advanced students but also work very efficiently with beginners.

In the spirit of my previous teachers, I encourage new and fun methods of music instruction while still reinforcing the basics. All with the idea of having fun while playing music!

Thank you for your consideration.

I have been working with Jesse for a few years now. I am bummed that the subject section of this review only lets me select one subject. Jesse has helped me with ear training, theory and composition, piano, performance, harmony, and overall musician advice. I cannot think of a more authentic and caring mentor and teacher out there that could be as efficient and helpful as Jesse has been to my career. I have seen a lot of progress in my musical career and my confidence as a musician has grown thanks to Jesse! He genuinely cares about the art and his students, he gets involved in their music careers and makes sure that the lesson is learned. He is familiar with many approaches and works hard for his students. Music is very lucky to have Jesse as a teacher!

Jesse is a great teacher for musicians of any level. His passion for music and music education is evident in the way he communicates with his students. Jesse is extremely patient, and will cater to your individual needs. He's a teacher who is truly on your side and aspires to help you reach your goals! I highly recommend lessons with Jesse, he makes playing fun!

About Seth

In my lessons, I make sure that I do my best to serve your interests. No matter what style of music you are passionate about, I want to help you develop that passion into musical ability. This is done through practice, analysis, reading, and listening. Even if you want to focus on metal or popular music, I will make sheet music arrangements of the music you already know and love, to better teach you how to read and interpret written music. Also, playing with recordings will often be a part of lessons to help prepare students for playing with other musicians. This holistic approach to teaching will ensure you are the best musician you can be, and not just another guitarist.

"Taj is an amazing teacher and you can tell he really loves it too! I am a musician and have been singing professionally for years, and in just one lesson
Taj taught me practices and techniques that allowed my voice to feel effortless and powerful in a way it never has before. His lessons will strengthen your voice no matter what style you want to sing...jazz, rock, opera, pop. He makes it very fun as well- I look forward to our lessons all week!"

Barbara
"Jamie has been my voice teacher for almost three years. I have enjoyed working with him on a variety of different songs and musical styles. He always has
fun, sometimes challenging warm-ups for me to do at the beginning of each lesson. During the lesson, he is very good at helping me find better or easier ways to sing certain notes or phrases. He has a good ear and can tell if I'm singing something in an inefficient or incorrect way. When he offers me corrections or suggestions for ways to improve my singing, he does it in a way that is easy to understand and doesn't make me feel incompetent.
I feel that my singing has improved quite a bit during the time I have been working with Jamie. And as my voice improves, so does my confidence. I always look forward to my next lesson to measure my progress and to see what new things I might learn."

"Mrs. Sally, or as many of us refer to her as Auntie Sally, is a wonderful, beautiful, and kind hearted individual. As a piano teacher, she exposes her lov
e and passion in sharing her musical knowledge with others. She is one of the most caring teachers who has made a tremendous impact upon my life, among the 11 years that I have known her. As I was a former student of hers, she has given me the opportunity to share my passion of music with others, through the position of a student teacher. Her bubbly personality, advice, and past experiences give comfort to many students and myself, in a way that will inspire us to keep striving and persevering to our goals. Aside from focusing too hard on the music curriculum she loves to get to know her students better, whether that would be through their hobbies, building a relationship with their parents and other family members, or asking questions that simply let her students know that she cares about them.She has formed many beautiful friendships with her students, but for me she has always been a second motherly figure in my life. I grew up with her and her husband Mr. Tim / Uncle Tim starting at the age of 8 and here I am 19 years old, and still occupying their studio. And honestly, I love her for all that she has provided for me. Her thoughts, her words, and her actions are what sets her aside from the other teachers. Take it from me, she has been by my side and supported me, cheered me on, and made me feel special throughout the years. And that's what she does ... She makes you feel like you matter, because you do. She's more than just a music teacher within her studio, she's more than just an instructor, and she's more than you'll ever know unless you meet her."

Krista
"My 13 year old son loves working with Amanda. She has done a great job zeroing in on his interests and incorporating those interests into his lessons. S
he taught him how to play the beat of his favorite Eminem song! I love that he looks forward to his lessons with Amanda!"

Jonathan G
"I would recommend Carlos to ANY parent looking to give their child trumpet lessons, he has been teaching my son Michael for over 3 years and he has become
a dear family friend. He is patient, resourceful, and has insurmountable talent with teaching children of any age, we are blessed!"

Marcos
"My son Marcos was very satisfied with his first piano lesson with Jin"
Max
"Jordan is a fantastic teacher! He expertly and patiently guided my young son from essentially 0 to reading notes and playing them on the guitar in about
half an hour. He is clearly an experienced musician who loves to teach. We are looking forward to the next lesson."
...
Martha
"David Blumberg is one of the finest private teachers I've known in my career as performer and band director. His private lessons with my reed sections rev
olutionized their sound. I sent my own son to him for several years and was always impressed with his high standards, clear approach and instant results. As a mom, I'm equally impressed with his kindness and empathy. I highly recommend David without reservation."
