She is my daughter's teacher and she is awesome! They get along so well and my daughter has learned and grown so much from her lessons. No only that, but she loves and looks forward to her lessons while stating that she "gets to practice". How many students say they GET to practice instead of "have to practice? "
I highly recommend Tiffany Lynne Sieker.

Aside from being an amazing violin player, Tiffany is a great instructor. I haven't taken lessons since I was 14 -- that's almost 30 years -- and while I consider myself to be a professional-caliber violin and viola player (I'm also concertmaster of a local community orchestra), I know I have areas that can use improvement. Tiffany was very quick to spot them, and to find ways to help me improve them. After only a few sessions, I've already noticed a positive change in my sound and technique. I am continuing to work with her to keep improving and to reach my full potential.

Tiffany has studied under some well-known teachers, and attended Mannes School of Music in New York City (some refer to Mannes as the "little sister" to Julliard). She is well-versed in classical and modern music, performing regularly for classical orchestras, ballets, musicals, and an Irish Punk Rock band! While I'm sure this is all in her profile, I just want to make mention of it here, because it showcases not only her knowledge and experience, but her versatility.

Whether you're a beginner, mid-range amateur, or professional looking for improvement (like me), I highly recommend Tiffany. You won't go wrong with her!

Katrin N.

Santee, CA

About Katrin

I am a 1991 graduate of Tallinn Conservatory in Tallinn, Estonia, where I studied music education, child psychology, choir conducting and voice. While a student, I gained experience as a choir conductor-associate and concert administrator for Tallinn Philharmonic Society. I managed music festivals of all kind and local and foreign musicians. I arrived in San Francisco in 1992 for the Estonian Mixed Choir. I conducted the choir and was an accordionist for Estonian folk dancers until 1995. I enjoyed playing the accordion with ALSI (Accordion Lovers Society International) Ensemble in San Diego (also produced a CD recording with them). I give private instruction in piano, accordion and choir conducting. I also sing and have produced recordings with several classical vocal groups ...

Fantastic!

We've used six different piano teachers in three different states --Katrin is definitely the very best. Highly recommended for children of any age -- our oldest is 18 and our youngest is 7.

Highly recommended!

Miss Katrin has been coming to our home to teach piano to our 7 and 10 year olds for the past 2 years. From day 1 they have loved the experience. They are always excited about their upcoming lessons, and their motivation has lead to increasing daily practice time.
She has a good way in communicating with the children in a clear and patient manner, and they take what she says quite seriously. We can feel that the love is mutual as she clearly enjoys teaching and witnessing her students progress.

Two thumbs up!

I inherited a piano at age 43 and with absolutely NO musical experience upon which to draw, started taking lessons with Katrin. Her enthusiasm for the subject, friendly and patient manner have kept me dedicated to my mission of mastering this instrument. It does not come easily or naturally for me but Katrin's charisma has kept me at it for more than three years. She is both my teacher and now my dear friend and I cannot recommend her enough.

Sharon is an amazing teacher who is patient and extremely knowledgeable. I have learned more in my short time with her than I learned in all of my previous instruction. Her warm personality and strong expertise will make learning the piano enjoyable and rewarding.

Trevor H.

El Cajon, CA

About Trevor

Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the huge, black monstrosities that people in the pre-historic used in place of iPods), followed closely by my father's CD collection. After a while, this ravenous desire of to know and feel music moved me to play an instrument. After a couple of false starts with the drums and violin, I found my true musical calling: the guitar. On January 25th 1995, on a whim, I began playing the guitar, and I have yet to put it down. Along the way I've picked up a number of friends for my guitar, including the bass, the ...

Trevor has been my 12 year-old daughter's drum teacher for over a year and has started teaching my 14 year-old daughter and me the guitar. Above all, Trevor instills his love of music into every lesson...and to every student. He custom-tailors each lesson to the student's style, needs and goals. Lessons are always fun, positive and productive. He is responsible, always on time and communicates well. Trevor has been a great find. He is an amazing teacher.

Trevor is a knowledgeable and capable teacher. I am not a beginning student, I have a degree in music and I have played guitar for many years. I was looking for someone to help take my playing in a different more refined direction. Trevor is excellent. He knew I had an understanding of music already and came to me with a nuanced and exciting curriculum.

He is personable, professional, and most of all, an excellent teacher.
