Oren S.

Santa Maria, CA

About Oren

I've played Music all my life, first teaching myself, then pursuing private instruction on various instruments, then completing a BA in Music in 2009. Music is important to me as an outlet for self-e
xpression, and as a way to communicate in the universal language.
I really enjoy passing on the knowledge I've acumulated over the years and seeing students grow and develop their own relationship with the Music.
I also have a graduate degree in the field of education and draw many instructional techniques and approaches from the realm of classroom-instruction.
I believe strongly in a personalized, student-centered, approach to teaching and a lot of positive reinforcement to encourage growth.
My masters is in special ed., I have worked with individuals who have developmental disabilities and other challenges for many years and am happy to discuss any special arrangements

Carrie is my first singing teacher, and she has set a very high bar for future teachers. At first I was only interested in belting Broadway musicals. She was able to help me hit the higher notes and hold them while using proper technique and proper breathing. She also guided me into opera! I am now learning a song in Italian, and never in a million years would I have thought, I could sing opera! If you are looking for a educated, talented, encouraging, all around magnificent teacher! Look no further!

We have been very happy with Carrie as our daughter's singing instructor. Our daughter wanted to audition for some acting/singing roles and improve her singing skills overall, and Carrie has been a great asset. Carrie helped her identify her strengths and work on her weaknesses, work on technique to improve her overall vocal skills, add affect to a song, and even learn what she can do to help her voice before a performance. Shannon really enjoys her lessons and always wants to go.

Excellent Piano teacher

Carrie is an amazing piano instructor!!! My son Elijah is 10 years old & thanks to Carrie he LOVE playing the piano!!! Even after the first lesson he was eager to come back every week. Carrie is very professional!! She loves her job and takes it very seriously with a kid friendly approach, so the kids feel comfortable with her. The communication between Carrie and myself was great! She called a few times before our first lesson to get to know Elijah a little bit before the lessons began. Which I loved! Carrie also kept in touch through email or phone if she needed anything or if I had questions. She is very helpful and you can always rely on her to be on time. Also, her studio was clean and comfortable for lessons. I would recommend Carrie as an instructor to anyone! She's amazing!!! I also got the honor to meet her beautiful family! Carrie is all around a great wife, mother and instructor!!!!

Jason C.

San Luis Obispo, CA

About Jason

I've been playing music for over 20 years. I've been teaching for over 10 years. My main instrument is guitar but I also play and teach piano, drums, uke and bass. I currently play with Nataly Lola in
the good time rock n roll band Ghost\Monster. I am constantly listening to new alternative music (98.7 and AltNation) as well as learning the classics for the cover band. I never have a bias for a song and am always surprised when the pop song on the radio is actually quite clever when broken down to its roots. As a teacher I cater to the student. I've taught Old Country, Jazz Theory, New Metal, Russian Ska (yup!) and anything else that you want to learn.
