Last sign in: Yesterday


Hello! My name is Lucciana, and I have been a music industry professional for over fifteen years. I have extensive experience working with young children and children with special needs as the former program director at Cool Kids Groove Los Angeles. I taught songwriting to teenage students at the School of Creative and Performing Arts in New York City and I have been playing the Dobro guitar since I was a teenager myself.

First and foremost, I am passionate about teaching music in a way that leaves each student connected to the joy of creative play. No matter what age, skill level, or instrument, I fully believe that music meets you where you are and enriches your life in exceptional ways. I will work with you on what you wish to learn, incorporating skill, music theory, dexterity, technique, improv and repertoire into your curriculum in a way that leaves both of us inspired at the end of each lesson.

Lucciana's incredible energy and ability to connect with children in an instant is the first thing that I experienced upon meeting her. Underneath her warm, welcoming exterior are layers upon layers of musical talent and wisdom that make for a top notch teacher/collaborator. Lucciana truly is the best of the best. Los Angeles is at a loss without her!!!

Lucciana's positive energy is authentic and real! My daughters studied music with her for years. She was always punctual, respectful, considerate, and careful. Her vivacious joy of living is contagious! The most important things she shared with my children was her positive energy and confidence. By modeling these qualities, she teaches them. My youngest daughter has special needs, and Lucciana intuitively adapted to her special needs far better than most therapists. Highly recommend! She taught piano, ukulele, singing, and performance.
