Hello! My name is Lucciana Costa, 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.
