Marsha K. Roseville, CA

About Marsha

It is a pleasure to meet you! You probably came here with both a little excitement and a little concern. Finding the right person for you can be intimidating. A short introduction follows so that you know a little about me and my philosophy; 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, and I just reconnected with my first teacher again on Facebook, what a lovely world this is. 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. I believe strongly that those who spend their time and resources for musical education are some of the brightest ...

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.

Ronald S. Citrus Heights, CA

About Ronald

With a Bachelor's Degree in music from California State University Sacramento I studied with the best, including graduates from Juilliard and Eastman. I focus on what my students want to play and provide a harmonic grounding to enable the student to improvise or just "jam" with anybody. I also provide a positive reinforcement atmosphere and will accept ground floor beginners to advanced intermediate students. *** Lesson Details *** I believe it's important to create a relaxed, stress free lesson atmosphere to encourage creativity and self confidence. While mistakes are expected I believe building a students self confidence will make those mistakes disappear. We'll start with fundamentals which will build your understanding of what you're playing and be able to apply it to whatever ...

About Kimberly

I grew up in a household of 9 where music was always center stage. We would sing as a family in different venues and were often called the VonTrapp family.

Great Teacher!!!

Kimberly is an excellent teacher and I highly recommend her. She is patient with you as a student and explains things at your level. She is very knowledgable about music as she plays many instruments and has a great ear. As an adult student she had me learn to read music early in the lesson which I found to be very helpful. Lessons are at her home and it is in an appropiate setting. My Lessons fly by as she has an engaging teaching style and she stays focused on helping your improvement from week to week. She is flexible in rescheduling your weekly lesson if needed.I would rate her an A+ as a Music teacher!

Dylan M. Roseville, CA

About Dylan

Hey there! Maybe you are just getting started playing and need some guidance. Maybe you have a firm grasp on things but feel like something is missing. No matter the case, you've come to the right place to expand your musical knowledge. Not to mention have a lot of fun doing it! My name is Dylan M. Let me tell you a bit about myself. I have been playing music since I was 8 years old. I received 2 local music scholarships and a general academic scholarship. I am currently attending college for my music degree.

To me there is nothing more fun than learning a great new song and playing with other musicians. I spent years studying music ...

Fantastic Teacher!
My son, Cole, really enjoys working with Dylan and I appreciate how patient Dylan is with him when he's a little too unfocused. I think Dylan could sense that Cole was not really enjoying learning the ukelele (Cole has a problem with wanting to practice. He just wants to be good right away!). So, he brought him a cd with songs that are familiar to him. I would say that that was kind of a turning point. Cole started to practice on his own after that during the week, along with the cd, and was motivated to practice. It is great having a teacher who is willing to try different things to motivate and spark an interest. I would, and have, recommended him to my friends!

Dylan was great with my daughter and helped her learn a lot. He is a very nice young gentleman. The only disappointments I had were site related, and use of the site related. The way our appointments were abruptly cut off. I understand that he did have other obligations to school, but we paid for 1 full year so we could get the discount, and when he stopped being my daughter's teacher, we were left with whatever pieces of the funds we had not yet used. No longer a discount, as the "free lessons" added to the end of the arrangement were not met. Also, there was a lot of scheduling changes that were not reflected in the calendar on this site. It got very hard to track which appointments we actually attended as they were never on the dates it showed in the calendar. I am left unsure if we ended up paying Dylan for the correct amount of classes.

I paid 150 for lessons 2 weeks ago for Allie. A week later she cancelled her first lesson with my 12 year old daughter due to not feeling well, which is fine. Another week later, the day of the next scheduled lesson she asked for my address at 1 and at 3 tells me I live 12 miles away and she will only travel 10 miles away because that is an hour out of her time that she can be teaching and that either she has to charge me more or I will have to drive to her. No where on the website does it say that she only travels 10 miles and the website let me chose in home lessons. My problem is this... A professional would have asked for the address and checked the location before cancelling and making a 12 year old little girl who has her hear set on guitar lessons wait 2 weeks to only be told she won't travel this far in the first place. Very disappointing.
