About Aaron

Hello fellow and future musicians, and thanks for checking out my profile! To tell you a little about myself, I was exposed to music at a very young age since my dad was a musician. I first picked up the drums at the age of 5, and took piano lessons for a year when I was 6. I later played the saxophone in 4th grade, and finally discovered the guitar when I was 9. (Ironic since my dad is a guitarist and the guitar was around the house forever!) He showed me my first chords and really got me started on the instrument, and I played in several local bands in high school playing a range of musical styles from rock, blues, funk, and reggae. I really didn't take music seriously until I was in college, and began studying under Jerry Coelho, a member of the very first graduating class of the ...

I took my two boys one is 8 yrs. old and the other one is 14 yrs. old and both they never had any experience on playing the guitar and when they started going with Aaron, my kids where so happy to have a nice and knowledgeable instructor, they do know now how to read notes and they starting to play the guitar. Aaron has a lot of patience when it comes to kids and teenagers that starting to want to play the guitar, Aaron will explain and teach in a manner that kids want to go back the very next day and also teaches on a way it's fun for them and not boring. I will give Aaron 5 stars because he is a great instructor.

We love Aaron! My 9-year-old daughter is taking beginner guitar lessons. He's very patient and teaches at a pace that she's comfortable with. He's helpful in correcting her mistakes and is very encouraging. This has allowed her to grow an abundance of new skills. She also teaches them to me! Through this experience, she has taken a new interest in ukulele as well.

Aaron's very knowledgeable, talented and is accommodating to our busy schedule. Plus he's very funny! I've also learned a lot in this process as an observer. I'd definitely recommend him as a teacher to anyone who is a beginner or would like advance their skills.

My children are both studying with Mikhail and they are so enthusiastic about their lessons with him (piano and cello.) They find his manner of instruction compelling and inspiring. Mikhail is so patient as he guides them through each lesson which always include technique, theory and an abundance of fun. He is a natural teacher with a talent for keeping children both engrossed and inspirited throughout each lesson. They leave each class feeling elated and looking forward to the following week's lesson. They are also motivated to practice throughout the week, excited to return with their progress. I would absolutely recommend Mikhail as an instructor for both children and adults, as I thoroughly enjoy the lessons, as well.

Best decision I've made...

Taking lessons with Mikhail is the best decision I've made in a long time. I hadn't had any formal music instruction since I was a kid, so I was a little nervous about finding the right teacher for me. Playing music used to be a chore for me growing up. But Mikhail is so gentle and encouraging, flexibly attending to my individual needs, that I feel my relationship with music is being restored as a vital part of my life. Mikhail stresses technical proficiency in a way that isn't dry and boring. He is training my hands and ears to create a beautiful vehicle for self expression. He effortlessly inspires creativity, and so obviously loves teaching. I would recommend Mikhail to anyone who wants to master an instrument or learn how to create their own compositions.
Justine D. San Diego, CA

I have been playing bass guitar for 16 years and have experience with jazz (big band and combo), pit orchestra, folk, pop, and rock settings. Our first lesson will begin with a quick assessment of your musical background, experience with the instrument, and your musical goals. Your next lessons will build on that foundation to support the goals you want to achieve.

Whether it's starting a band with friends, getting stronger on technique, or learning how to play in a new style or genre, we'll work together to reach your goals!

About Justine

I love music and believe in its ability to bring people together. It's been a part of my life since I was 5, practicing piano at home in Michigan. Music was a big part of every single one of my school years, and I was lucky enough to be able to double major in music and psychology at Kalamazoo College once I graduated from high school. My passion for music has taken me abroad, to London, where I studied Western & Russian art music and took classes in popular music studies at Goldsmiths College, University of London. It spurred my move across the country to New York, where I developed a better understanding of how important creativity is to all of us -- especially musicians! -- at Teachers College, Columbia University. And, most importantly, it's allowed me to do what I love ...

I had apprehension about an ON line guitar class, however I live very remotely in the mountains of CO and finding a teacher to work with wasn't easy...FORTUNATELY, that was the case, because I found Justine! She is knowledgable, is very tuned into MY pace, and has the flexibility I need with my unpredictable scheduling needs. I can now pick up the guitar and play a tune and sing along, and am learning more and more each time. I can't say enough about her!

The bass guitar is probably the most overlooked instrument in the traditional rock band. I will help you understand how to play tastefully and to groove with a drummer. You never want to be in the way; you're there to make everyone else sound good (they probably won't without you!).

About Francis

Hi everyone! I'm a hard-working musician with a background in live performance, songwriting, composition, and home recording. I want to help you perform the music you love, whether you're playing to your family, your webcam, or a 15,000 seat arena. I have been teaching private music lessons since 2007. I am a graduate of UCSD, where I completed my bachelor's degree in music theory and composition. I have taken years of private lessons, played bass, guitar, and mandolin in local and touring bands, and released three albums of original music. I want to make your goals accessible. *** Lesson Details *** I focus on making lessons fun for my students. I emphasize the importance of practicing on your own and building confidence by performing live and/or writing your own songs. I love ...

Kevin F. San Diego, CA

I've been playing the bass guitar for 12 years and have performed in bands in and around San Diego for several years. I focus on the fundamentals of electric bass performance for beginning students and then move on to lessons specifically tailored to students' needs. My lesson plans focus on song performance and use the songs as an avenue to discuss overall bass technique.

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 ...
