About Lars

I began to teach guitar at 16 years of age. I have taught students from 7 to 60 years old in a wide variety of styles. From age 12 to 21 I took private guitar lessons regularly. Now I have a lesson every once in a while. I studied jazz guitar primarily with Randy Vincent, one of the San Francisco Bay Area's greatest guitar players. Aside from teaching lessons as a job, I have played guitar in many concerts and continue to do so. Before moving to San Francisco, I gained a lot of experience and valuable education with guitar. I played in the jazz bands in Junior High and High School. I went to four years of a week long summer jazz camp called jazz camp west where I took classes, played open mics and had fun with many musicians, making some good friends. I hold BA degrees in Music ...

About Natalie

Excellent teacher

Natalie is a wonderful piano teacher as she started with my 8 year old daughter from scratch. It has been several months now and she loves playing and looks forward to her lesson each week. She has progressed quite nicely and we look forward to see what she accomplishes in the future with Natalie's help.

Cabell H. Brooklyn, NY

About Cabell

Born and raised in the wine country of Northern California I have been a student of music since the age of 4. Beginning on violin, then exploring a variety of instruments from piano to drums, at age 13 I finally discovered the guitar (my principal instrument and what I would later go on to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music). My teachers have ranged from the local music shop teachers, prestigious academics, to well known performers. I grew up loving music, and was lucky enough to have the opportunity to receive a first class education from a very prestigious music school. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston I studied along side the brightest of young musicians from all over the world, and studied under some of the highest caliber teachers in their ...

If you are anything like me, you'll read this guy's profile and think it's too good to be true. But it is true, Cabell knows his stuff! He has helped me so much, my acoustic guitar is a completely new instrument to me because of all that I learned from him. The guy really is a wealth of musical knowledge and he has consistently found ways to explain things to me in a way that I understand it and can put it to use and gives me real exercises and things I can practice with and see results... WORTHY EVERY CENT!

Will work on English grammar, pronunciation, use, vocabulary, syntax, and writing. For students whose first language is not English, we will work particularly on vocabulary and pronunciation. For English speakers working on reading and writing we will focus more on the other aspects of the language, as well as phonics.

Very professional and patient

Ms Olsen has been giving my daughter piano lessons for a year. She comes to our home and is very professional, timely and patient. My daughter has made great progression with her piano, she looks forward to her lessons and practices without me having to remind her. It's so convenient that she comes to our house, and she communicate with me . I would highly recommend her.

Voice Has Never Been Better

In my now four years with her, Ms. Olsen has been an amazing, kind, and awesome teacher to have and work with. If it wasn't for her, my voice wouldn't sound as beautiful as it would have sounded without her teaching me. Going from classical songs to Italian songs to now modern/pop songs, my voice has gone through many different techniques to help my singing become better, which it has. Overall, I have learned a bunch from Ms. Olsen and I wouldn't want a different teacher either way. I am really happy my mother asked me if I wanted to take voice lesson. Thank you Ms. Olsen! :)

Singing
A shining star

Cymbaline Olsen is a shining star. Her talent and energy is boundless. Her ability to calmly listen, to sculpt, and to mold vocalists of all ages, ranges and abilities is second to none. Many acclaimed vocalists have minimal strengths in terms of "coaching-up" less competent vocalists. Cymbaline, however, is a natural teacher. She is a rare talent in that regard. Cymbaline's strength is teaching and performance. Her expertise in music theory, vocal phrasing and vocal scales is extraordinary. Cymbaline can teach you that Yes...you Can Sing....And Yes, you will!
I highly recommend Cymbaline for your Vocal Lessons.
