Diane W. San Diego, CA

I'm a casual, easy-going, caring person, and I enjoy establishing a unique working relationship with each student.
I have been teaching flute for about twenty years.
In teaching I employ a personal, individual, flexible approach, to give my students each what benefits him/her the most. I emphasize proper technique, beauty of tone, musical interpretation, and enjoyment. Music theory is intertwined with the instruction. And we play lots of duets!
I also play the piano, thus sometimes accompany my flute students.

About Diane

I have been playing the flute since fifth grade, a long time! I have taught flute privately for about twenty years. My second degree is an AA in Music from Grossmont College, near San Diego, CA. As a flutist I have been a member of both the La Jolla Civic Orchestra and the Grossmont Symphony Orchestra. Since 1989 I have been the principal flute and a soloist with the San Diego Concert Band. In that group I regularly lead flute sectional rehearsals. Since 2007, I have been a flute coach every summer at San Diego's Band at the Beach music camp for junior high and high school students. I have taught students from ages 5 to 80 and have good rapport with every age. *** Lesson Details *** I'm a casual, easy-going, caring person, and I enjoy establishing a unique working relationship ...

Diane makes learning music fun and enjoyable in a warm and friendly environment. So I look forward to my weekly lessons where we usually start with the the flute and wrap up the hour on the piano.
When I'm struggling with a new concept or a difficult technique Diane has the flexibility and patience to help me improve. In our first year, Diane showed a lot of patience! Diane motivates with praise and boosts my confidence while continuing to challenge me.
Diane is excited about music and teaching -- it's a way of life, and the enthusiasm is contagious. When your teacher is excited about your lessons, you will be too.

Rebecca is an amazing piano teach

Before taking piano lessons with Rebecca, my only experience with musical instruction was through elementary and junior high.

Rebecca's training and personal dedication to music makes her an extraordinary teacher. We use the Suzuki books, which I love because that's what I used for violin and flute. She supplements those favorites with really nice adult-learning-centered books on theory. As an adult learner, this was helpful, because I could read through these brief books, but then had the terminology to look up my questions online or know what to ask in lessons.

The lessons are so fun and well organized. We work on the songs in the books (which included CDs of the songs so you can hear what the song might sound like if you practice enough) and she would help me with songs I brought in too. Rebecca is so kind, and is great with my five-year-old too.

Really, Rebecca is an excellent music instructor. Her academic background, many years of actually playing piano and singing, knowledge of the music available and books, and variety of students -- all make her a versatile teacher, capable of helping anyone learn to the play the piano in whatever style they are interested in. Plus, she is an incredible person. I look forward to piano lessons with her.

great teacher

Rebecca gave my children piano lessons for several years, bi-monthly. She was very good about working with my limited budget (my wife is anti music). They really enjoyed their lessons and progressed nicely until my wife put an end to it and let her go.

In addition, Rebecca helped me with my more advanced music when she could and I appreciated this, too.

One slight criticism is that she was a little too nice, my son sometimes got out of hand during lessons.

Good luck Rebecca!

Amazing Piano Teacher!

Rebecca taught my daughter piano for over two years, and brought her from knowing nothing about piano to being able to read music. Her demeanor and personality were a perfect match for my daughter; calm and gentle, friendly, genuinely interested in getting to know her aside from simply teaching piano. Yet she also knows how to keep children on track throughout a lesson, as they can get easily distracted. She is wonderful with kids and knows how to get them interested in music. She is very flexible, and always worked with me to schedule make-up lessons when we missed a week. The skills my daughter learned with Rebecca have transferred nicely to my daughter's choir class in middle school, allowing her to learn her parts more easily. The only reason my daughter is no longer a student is because we moved from San Diego. I highly recommend Rebecca to anyone wishing to enroll their child in piano lessons!

Adrián T. San Diego, CA

"“The flute is not an instrument that has a good moral effect; it is too exciting." - Aristoteles

About Adrián

Adrián : Born on October 17, 1975, and raised in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, México, Adrian T. grew up surrounded by the traditional music of Central America from Danzón, Boleros and Rumba, to Son and Mambo. Adrián began developing his musical ability starting at the age of eleven. He was inclined to play the tenor saxophone and the flute with an understanding of classical music and a distinct attraction to jazz, and five years later chose to take on the clarinet. His grandmother, a "Danzón Nut" according to Adrián, urged her grandson in that direction, but the young player was adamant towards a newfound paragon for himself: John W. Coltrane. 2001 was a year that would have a profound impact on Adrián’s music. While pursuing Sociology and Music Studies at The University of Texas, El Paso, he

Recomiendo ampliamente a Adrián como una excelente opción para tomar clases de manera particular tanto de manera presencial como a distancia. Si algo puedo resaltar de mi experiencia como alumno suyo es la de aprender con precisión y de manera dinámica todo lo que en el salón de clases no alcanza uno a comprender. Y como alumno que requiere a un maestro tan preparado como paciente, debo decir que Adrián es un excelente músico, notable maestro, y todavía mejor persona.

One of the best instructors I've had to this date. Really easy to understand when it comes to exchanging concepts. Also great at explaining harmony to guitar players. If you're looking to get deep into harmonic concepts, this is the guy to learn from!

Adrian is an absolutely amazing teacher, what we accomplished in just a few hours was more than I've learned with other instructors in years of studying. On top of being as studied as they come in my opinion, Adrian was so personable it was easy to communicate right off the bat. If you are looking for a music teacher, who will show you the proper way to do things musically and is as hip as they come, Adrian is your guy!
Ian T. San Diego, CA

I've been teaching the flute for 10 years and I am comfortable working with all age groups and ability levels.

Several of my students have participated in San Diego Honor Band as well as San Diego Youth Symphony. Preparation is the key to success, and I specialize in coaching students for auditions.

I also focus on duets and tone studies to help you unlock the beautiful sound of this instrument.

Music theory is an integral part of each lesson (as well as some basic piano concepts which can be very useful to woodwind players). Jazz conception and improvisation is also a specialty!

About Ian

I've been teaching woodwinds (saxophone, flute, and clarinet) for the past 15 years and enjoy the one-on-one interaction with students of all ages. Music is one of the last professions that is truly learned through apprenticeship. Having a good private teacher is absolutely essential to your growth and development! Over the years I've amassed wide variety of concepts and materials to speed your learning process and keep things FUN. I've taught all ages and abilities: new beginners (elementary and middle school level), older students just picking up the horn again, conservatory-bound high school students, amateur professionals, marching band & drum core kids, retirees looking for a fun hobby, professional musicians looking to expand their jazz knowledge, and more. We'll start at your ...

Saxophone · In studio
Skilled in both jazz and classical saxophone, Ian has been a great source of information and encouragement for the whole eight years I've been playing sax. He is very aware of the differences between members of the saxophone family and has helped me feel comfortable switching between alto and tenor. His ability to analyze and critique what I used to consider minor details in my tone/embouchure/etc. has made a significant impact on how I practice. I've even been able to pick up some quick basics on clarinet while my horns were in the repair shop.

Ian also performs quite a bit around town. I don't often get a chance to see him play (outside of lessons. of course), but whenever I do, I have a great time seeing him apply the same skills that he teaches me.
Sarah G. San Diego, CA

The focal point of my lessons are almost always technique and tone. Each lesson you can expect to be playing with a tuner and metronome. I highly recommend that all my students have a tuner and metronome, especially the beginners. I cannot begin to emphasis how important it is to have the proper technique when learning a new instrument. My goal is to provide the student with the proper foundation needed for them to be successful as they continually progress.

About Sarah

My background includes playing the flute for 17 years including 4 years in the Marine Corps Band. I have attended and graduated from the Armed Forces School of Music. I have performed in a variety of professional bands to include concert, marching, and jazz band. I also can provide assistance to students attempting to learn piccolo.
