I was inspired to play the violin after seeing the local middle school orchestra perform when I was 8 years old. Since beginning group violin lessons the following school year, I have been consistently involved in developing my passion for and involvement in music in versatile ways -participating in many classical orchestras and ensembles, interning at 91X radio station during college,
and performing as a session musician and live string performer in the San Diego music scene.
In 2010, I graduated Cum Laude with a B.A. in Music and a minor in Pre-Therapeutic Psychology from Point Loma Nazarene University. In addition to teaching lessons, I play for weddings, parties, and other events, and can be found rocking out on stage in acoustic world punk band QUEL BORDEL!
I teach from more traditional methods and use my personal history to provide a well-rounded learning experience. I enjoy sharing the beauty and creativity of classical music, Irish/world music, hymns/religious pieces, as well as contemporary songs.
My approach to teaching is very holistic, helping to create for each of student a solid foundation of music theory, history, note-reading, and technique while also exposing them to a variety of pieces and genres so they can be better prepared to explore what most interests them.

I have been working with Regina for over a year now. I have made SO much progress in one year. It's hard to believe! I highly recommend Regina. I'm really enjoying playing now! It's fun!
Ms Regina was wonderful! My son absolutely loved having her as a teacher. She really spent time with him on the basics of reading music and tempo, and we could see his skills progress. Thank you, Ms Regina!
She is experienced and very knowledgeable. She is going to help me improve my viola playing! I would recommend!
I am 65 years old and had not taken violin lessons since I was in the 6th Grade.
I inherited my dad's violin and had a new desire to take lessons. Regina made
me feel comfortable and assured me that I can make progress with practice.
She is professional and friendly.
Regina is one of the nicest teachers I've dealt with. She's very patient and really knows what she's doing.
Ms Regina encourages my son to reach new goals, and has really helped him stay focused on and refine his basic skills. I've seen a lot of improvement with her direction.
I had so much fun at my first lesson! Can't wait for the next one. Thanks Regina!
Regina is AMAZING!!! My daughter is 15 and just loves her, and her teaching style! Can't wait for more lessons!! :)
My 8 year old daughter is loving music, and music lessons with Regina.
Regina teaches wonderfully. My eight year old new to music daughter loves her lessons with Regina. And, is eager to practice the lessons assigned each week. Regina is a positive influence in my daughter's life. And, that is what this father is always striving to provide her. Thank you, ReginaShow More
Regina is a great teacher. Zoe loved everything about Regina and everything about the lessons. 5 stars all the way around!
My daughter is 6-years old and is taking viola lessons with Regina for some weeks now. My daughter finds the class interesting and she is enthusiastic with her progress. The instructor is charismatic, dynamic and didactic.

I am an outgoing, positive teacher who has a passion for music and for sharing this passion with students in a fun and relatable way. I don't approach every student the same way - as unique individuals, I learn about the student's goals and personality, and will create customized lessons based on the information and relationship we form. Knowledge of the instrument, music theory, and basic fundamentals are building blocks of any lesson, but the sky is the limit!!
I teach beginner and intermediate violinists in individual and group settings.
I have been teaching private violin, viola, piano, and music theory for ten years, in both individual and group settings.
