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 ...

Alex obviously has a love for music, and a passion for teaching. I look forward to my lessons because he is always pointing out my improvements, no matter how small.
Charles W. La Mesa, CA

About Charles

As far back as I can remember, music has been a central part of my life. I grew up in a musical family; my father a drummer and pianist, my mother a woodwinds player, and my brother a bassist, I have been surrounded by music as far back as I can recall. Upon graduating from San Diego SCPA, I became interested in recording and audio engineering, eventually working as 2nd engineer at Signature Sound in Clairemont, and main engineer at Proxy Music in Oceanside. This afforded me invaluable experience working with some of San Diego's finest musicians and recording artists. In 2008, I attended Berklee College of Music on scholarship - majoring in Professional Music with an emphasis on performance and composition. In 2011, I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in Music.

Charlie is exactly what I was looking for. My situation is unique but that didn't phase him. By lesson's end, I felt more like a partner in this process than a student. And that's how I operate the best, and learn the most. I'm excited. After all these years, I'm finally going to learn to play the keys!

Anna P. Spring Valley, CA

About Anna

I grew up in a musical home with a piano teacher for a parent. Consequently, I started learning piano and singing at a young age, and then began taking voice lessons in high school. For the last 19 years I have been studying voice and loving every minute of it! I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and Music Teacher's Association of California. I have a bachelor's degree in music education from Bob Jones University, and a master's degree in Vocal Performance from Azusa Pacific University. I also studied for 2 summers during college with a master teacher. Over the years I have performed and worked with both children's choirs and adult choirs and given private concerts. My enthusiasm for music has spilled over into a love for teaching. I have taught private voice

Michael P. La Mesa, CA

About Michael

I have been playing electric bass and acoustic bass for over 26 years and teaching music since 1996. I teach all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced students. I've developed my own unique method of teaching to positively enhance my student€™s' groove, ear-training and modern bass technique. My goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician. I attended James Madison University with a B.M. in bass and was a scholarship winner at the prestigious University of North Texas for graduate school. I've toured the world, played in 49 US states, and appeared on numerous Broadway shows, in concert, on television commercials and on Grammy nominated records. Modern technology has a prominent place in my studio. My ...

Michael and I have worked together for many years. His playing (on acoustic, electric, and fretless bass) is outstanding, his time impeccable, and his intonation and technique are impressive. Michael holds himself to the highest professional standards and has the respect of all his colleagues. He's always cheerful and encouraging, too - I highly recommend him as a teacher!

I have known and been performing professionally with Michael for many years now. In every musical situation, whether playing in a rock setting or playing a jazz gig
or doing a musical theatre type show, his time feel and musical sensibilities are always spot-on and to top it off, Mike always brings a really positive attitude in all his dealings with people he works with and his students-take it from me, if you're an aspiring bass or guitar student, Michael is the real deal!

I am not a bass player. I am an orchestra contractor who has had the pleasure of working with Michael for several years. He has been my "first call" since the first time I hired him. He is accomplished on acoustic bass, electric bass and fretless electric and I have not found a style that he can't nail including classical. He is always on time, prepared and always ready to make an extra effort in difficult performance situations.
Dennis B. Chula Vista, CA

About Dennis

I have been playing drums professionally for over 15 years. My styles range from traditional jazz, to jazz/fusion, Latin, Brazilian, rock and funk. I have studied music at Diablo Valley College, Southwestern College, and UCSD. I am a founding member of the critically acclaimed James Abbuhl band where I drummed and co-produced the CD "Voyages and Homecomings". My focus will be to get you to play musically. The drums should fit the music, meaning that as a drummer, one should play what makes sense for the music. *** Lesson Details *** My lesson plans for the beginner will start with the basics: stick technique, rudiments of drumming, reading drum notation. For the intermediate to advanced we'll focus on what you want to learn while filling in the blanks with all styles of modern drumming. ...

A great teacher!

I love how Dennis has customized my lessons for my taste in music and my goals with the drums. This makes the lessons fun and productive--and it keeps the practicing at home enticing, too. I definitely see great progress in my drumming since I started working with him.

A great teacher!

I've wanted to take drum lessons my whole life and finally got up the courage. Figured I'd be two left feet and two left hands! This made me self-conscious. But Dennis totally put me at ease, and I'm having a great time learning with him. He tailors each lesson for me and the progress I've made on my own while I practiced, and he had me playing my favorite songs right away. I've even learned how to read a piece of sheet after just a few lessons! I was always so intimidated by that part. Dennis is so clear in explaining, and so patient in working through nuances, and careful to get me going on the rudiments right away. He is thorough, responsive, encouraging, and just plain nice. I highly recommend him as a teacher of any age student.
Tim M. Poway, CA

About Tim

Since graduating from San Diego State University in 1986 (where I received my Bachelors degree in music and was the recipient of the Outstanding Graduate Award in music for that year), I have been able to be involved in so many areas of drumming, percussion(including mallet instruments like vibes and xylophone) and teaching. This includes being an adjunct professor in the music dept. at SDSU (1994-1998) and currently at Grossmont College. From performing with international jazz giants like Art Farmer and Hank Jones, and local legends Hollis Gentry and L.A. guitarist Ron Eschete- to performing in pop settings with my own top 40/classic rock band and backing bands like the Drifters or pop singer Peter Cetera, my experience is broad. I've played in successful pop groups. ...

My son Brian started taking lessons with Tim about 5 months ago. He can never wait for lesson day! I also never have to remind him to practice :-) He plays several other instruments and Tim has been able to advise him in some way on all of them, though Brian says the drums are his favorite. Brian feels very comfortable with him and says he is very supportive. He even helped me find Brian a new drum set! My son has nothing but good things to say about him, as do I :-)

My name is Chazdan Lane. I started taking lessons from Tim while I was in middle school and I am still taking lessons while in high school. The lessons have been great. I have improved my playing a lot and I have learned things I would have never though I would have learned. The lessons are fun and they help me improve a lot.
