Great start for our 7 yo grandson. Tony immediately appealed to his musical interests, and prepared him to learn his first song next lesson.

Tony is seriously the best music teacher I have EVER had. He is so supportive, understanding, and knowledgeable. I have learned more about music theory in the past few months that I have taken lessons with Tony than I have across a whole 5 years. The way he explains all of the new concepts is very understandable and his encouraging nature makes you feel comfortable even if you make a mistake. He also lets you learn songs that you actually want to play, making the lessons even more enjoyable. Overall, Tony has truly helped me improve and actually makes me want to practice during my free time to become a better musician. Thank you Tony!

I have extensive experience with Ableton teach how maximize it as a creative tool. Instead of showing "tricks" on Ableton I show how to use Ableton as an instrument to become a complete musician. As part of Ableton instruction I teach composition, groove feel, timbre, all the same things that make a good instrumentalist translate to learning Ableton.

About Kellen

I believe this is a great time to be a musician. I have come of age as a musician in a time when music making and the music industry have shifted dramatically. There are many positives in this shift, with new oppurtinites opening up for musicians. I also see these changes not being addressed in m

Kellen has been a fantastic and knowledgeable bass teacher. I came into this with no background in music whatsoever but his teaching process is very simple and easy to grasp. He got a feel for what I did and didn’t know within 15 minutes on the first day & jumped right into improving the relevant skills I needed to learn next. Every lesson I learn something completely new and there is no wasted time. If you want to be pushed to become a better bass player in a very easygoing and welcoming environment, Kellen is the teacher for you.
Fred Z.
Kellen is a gifted instructor. As an adult learner I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was impressed with his structured and thoughtful approach to creating an excellent foundation and building skills.

Great teacher! Kellen has made me really excited about the guitar again.

This guy loves what he's teaching, and it shows in his extra, added attention to our lessons each week. He definitely gives more than expected during each lesson. I would recommend Jarod for his knowledge base, industry experience, and passion for his craft.

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!

Chis was a great teacher - very patient, knowledgeable, and inspiring.

Hello, I'm Kate!

I've been professionally producing music for the past several years, and singing/songwriting my entire life. I'm constantly seeking out ways to help others realize their unique sound, whether that's through a fresh mix, new instrumental approach, or total rework of a particular sound. My works have been featured on multiple Spotify editorial playlists like "Fresh Finds", BBC Introducing, and countless others. I've gathered over 200K+ streams through my creations.

As a producer, I specialize in electronic/pop/indie type sounds, but have worked with a variety of artists and genres. In addition to music creation, I also offer lessons in music theory and Abelton live. I've worked as a private music instructor for the past couple of years and have developed students to be hardworking independent musicians.

I am very passionate, hard working, and eager to respond to your audio needs effectively and efficiently. I am a big believer in catering each session to each ...

He taught me the basics of Ableton and the details of music production, recording audio/midi tracks, sound libraries, effects, etc. He guided me through the songwriting process, and made this complex software easier to navigate through and understand. I highly recommend Devin for anyone interested in enhancing their skills in music production. Thank you Devin for all your help!"

"Kyle is amazing with Ableton. Prepping for a live stream I needed some help getting my tracks assembled and configured for use with triggers from a pad in Ableton. While I'm no stranger to DAWs (I use Pro Tools and Logic regularly) - there are a lot of features and tools in Ableton live that I certainly would not have been able to find without countless hours of time and research.

Kyle made it so much easier to understand and learn about features, tools and workflow within Ableton. Thanks Kyle, you're awesome!"

"Taylor is an amazing teacher! She really knows how to break down complicated subjects for people like me who have no idea how music theory works and why it's important. My class is divided into theory and actual use of the software which is really a great way to learn the concepts and apply them yourself. We also had a lot of fun jamming out to little songs we made!"
