Allison R. San Diego, CA

About Allison

I began playing the violin in 3rd grade in my school general music class and instantly fell in love with it. I begged my mom for private lessons and after a year, she finally caved in. By my freshman year in high school, I had decided that I wanted to major in violin performance in college and make a career out of being a classical violinist. I went on to earn my Bachelor of Music in violin performance from State University of New York at Purchase. During my freshman year, I began teaching private violin and viola lessons at the Westport Music Center in Connecticut. I quickly realized that teaching is very fulfilling and that I loved sharing my passion and knowledge of the violin with others. While in undergrad, I also won my first job in a part time professional orchestra, the ...

This teacher is outstanding.

I would think that Allison would be good with any age and capability, but my daughter is 7 and just beginning. Allison is a perfect teacher. She makes good use of every minute, yet is fun and pleasant. She constantly gives positive reinforcement. My daughter really likes her and so do I!

Amely is a wonderful and a great human being. She made learning the guitar fun and exciting for me as a teenager and I used that knowledge to pursue a successful career in the music industry. I highly recommend to anyone searching for musical instruction, regardless of instrument. She is multi-talented and able to play and teach various instruments and she possesses a wide range of musical knowledge, ranging from singing, performing, theory, instruction and popular genres of music. Kudos!

Hi Dilys,It was a great pleasure to meet you. Thank you very much for allowing to attend the Erica and Robert's piano lesson and watch the dynamics. Also many thanks for the notes that you left regarding their performances. However I wish you give more specific comments for each one on what they were good at and which area they need to focus on to improve.

Miss Dilys is an incredible instructor. My son has only been taking lessons for a month now...and He learned so much ! He is very enthusiastic to attend his piano class and he's developed a passion to play piano. I attribute all this to Miss Dilys. Her enthusiasm and love of piano has inspired my five year old son. Miss Dilys has made the piano for my son easy to learn and fun to play.

About Bijan

Hi! I believe that music is rooted in all human beings and cultures in a reach and vast variety of forms. Music unifies and engages thinking and feeling in a direct and immediate way. Music influences individuals simultaneously on different levels of consciousness and form an important device for learning, recreation, arranging of conscious and unconscious impressions and at the same time for characterizing and conveying ideas and thoughts. This as a point of departure characterizes my teaching philosophy, which strives to create a climate in which my students can experience continuous musical, intellectual, and emotional growth. As a music instructor and musicologist I demonstrate the characteristics of professional and passionate for everything related to my teaching. I am ...

Bijan is a very good guitar instructor. My daughter and I both took guitar lessons and he was able to work with us as individuals since we both had different skill levels. Bijan is very patient with his students and helped us through various learning obstacles. I highly recommend anyone that needs or wants to learn any musical instrument to take lessons from Bijan.

Bijan is a great teacher. Learning to play the cello as an adult is tough, but he's very organized and encouraging. The recital was very anxiety-inducing, but we did really well and I felt a great sense of accomplishment afterward. I am only discontinuing due to distance and time constraints.

I should say Kayla has different teaching styles for different students depending on their abilities. I am 27 years old who sings without knowing how to read music whatsoever, so I was quite nervous when started. Being a non-English speaker made me even more nervous because I have been singing in Vietnamese my whole life. With Kayla's coaching, I am a lot more confident now even though it has only been a month. I am ready for the next step, learning proper singing techniques, after my fear for learning how to read music is now over thanks to Kayla.

I have been with Kayla for a few weeks now.
My experience is that she brings an enthusiasm to every lesson. She is very good at spotting areas that need help [like theory-type areas] and she is very patient, which as a person on the autistic spectrum, is something that I find to be invaluable.

She is very good about being flexible with lesson times. I come in, I may not be feeling as excited about the lesson, but when I leave, her enthusiasm stays with me for at least a few days! :D I cannot say enough good things about her.

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.
