By far the most wonderful singing instructor I've ever encountered. Salli is very thorough in her teaching but she also makes it VERY FUN! Always encouraging at every lesson which in turn nurtured confidence within myself and my voice. Salli truly cares about the success of each and every one of her students. Always willing to go beyond the call! One instance of this great example was an evening of Karaoke. Salli knew I was deathly afraid of being in front of an audience so to build up my confidence she decided to join me on stage. WOW!!! Studying with Salli goes beyond the Teacher-Student relationship. I also gained a life long friend. I can't thank her enough and am forever grateful to her for always believing in me.

Salli helped me immensely with my singing. I knew little to nothing when I started and now feel I have the knowledge and tools to use proper techniques and accomplish my goals. She is very patient and knowledgeable and I would recommend her to anyone!

I have been singing since I was a child however never had any proper vocal training until I started taking vocal lessons with Salli. She taught me many helpful techniques with singing from breathing mechanics to how to accurately mouth the words I am singing to project my notes better as well as many other techniques. Over the years I have used her techniques when recording and performing and I have seen my vocal abilities enhance and become way better than they have ever been. Salli is very professional and very knowledgeable in music and singing, and also a very sweet and sympathetic instructor. She really wants to help you perfect your art and will make sure it does happen, as I have seen it happen with me! She is also very patient and you can always discuss with her what you need to work on. I HIGHLY recommend Salli as your musical instructor, she truly enjoys her craft and loves to help her students.

Francis is a fantastic instructor. He is very patient and knowledgeable. My friends asked me to play bass guitar in their rock band so I needed to learn fast. Francis taught me the basics and quickly moved on to tips and tricks to help me advance. I am having a blast.

About Kevin

I have been teaching and performing in the San Diego area for many years and have used that experience to develop lessons for any level of player. My program emphasizes all around musicianship in addition to technical ability. Being a musician is more than simply learning repertoire. I help my students get the skills needed to be capable, independent performers. While studying at UCSD, I was awarded double honors for my work in Guitar Performance and Composition. In 2010, I was given awards for "Most Outstanding Graduating Senior" and "Outstanding Classical Music Performance". In January of this year, my latest ensemble piece "Bell Music" was given its premiere in Zurich, Switzerland by Ensemble TaG. *** Lesson Details *** While I am a very easy going teacher, I do require dedication ...

My 9 year old son has taken piano lessons with Ferlyn since September and she has been absolutely fantastic! He has gotten so much better since that time. Ferlyn is very good about rewarding and stern (not mean) when she needs to be. She has lots of patience. I've never seen her get frustrated or irritated with my son, which says a lot. Most of all my son really likes her!!!!

We are blessed to have two really great music teachers. Don't hesitate to signup for any of her lessons!

I was able to book incredible dance lessons with Ferlyn at the last minute for my friends who needed dance lessons for their wedding. Here is what they had to say:

"We had a little over a week before our wedding and needed to figure out our first dance. We went to Ferlyn for dance lessons. In 5 sessions we had our first dance down! She helped us build confidence in our dance. She is extremely professional and helpful. She allowed us to change up some moves and suggested new moves that would improve our style. We learned a lot of new techniques with great insight. Our first dance went really well and we definitely recommend her!" - Dang & Niki

I've received glowing reviews from them about that experience ever since, and they'll be cherishing that memory forever. I will continue to recommend Ferlyn for my other friends from now on! She won't let you down!

It was a very productive lesson. Ben was able to teach a lot of things in the limited time given, and he gives enough material to work on that can easily last me a week. He makes his lessons enjoyable and educational at the same time.

Although it was the first lesson , It is obvious Ben is very good on teaching.His approach is totally according to student's needs and level (it is very important!) He is very kind person and explains the things very well .My 13 years old daughter liked his teaching so much. Most important for us,was He does not start with boring cliches which you can find anywhere in the planet . You start to play with Ben from the first lesson. He is also very cooperative and flexible and open for the new ideas and requests. I strongly recommend him for all level guitarists , especially who already knows a few things and wants to improve to next level . Regards

I am an experienced pianist and flutist, but I wanted to learn the violin for the sake of my soul! Ms. Madeline was able to craft a custom-designed lesson plan that perfectly matched my own needs and musical level. She is fun, laughs a lot, and the lesson flies by. I'm inspired to practice, and can't wait until our next lesson. I am especially impressed with her own level of musical ability, as I have seen her perform in numerous orchestra, ballet and opera performances. She is a gem!

I played guitar in middle school and began to learn violin in 10th grade. Madeline helped me learn scales and studies, and encouraged me to practice by awarding me with special arrangements (my favorites being Lord of the Rings and the Legend of Zelda theme songs.) As a freshman in college now, I'm studying biology but still participating in a local community orchestra. Madeline made lessons fun, and helped me with my AP music theory homework too. Strongly recommended.
