Erasmo R. Murrieta, CA

About Erasmo

Hello Parents and Students, I have been teaching and writing music professionally for ten years. My first introduction to music was just like some of you, starting in high school where I had a great teacher that encouraged me to play. This helped me so much, and I wouldn't be where I am at if it weren't for his help and positive encouragement. Now I try to encourage all of my students the same way. After high school I went on and played percussion with various Orchestras such as the "œInland Valley Symphony Orchestra" and "Mt. San Jacinto Symphony Orchestra." I have also been involved in the DCI (Drum Corps International) and Drumline community. I toured for four years and experienced performing with groups such as Yamato Drum and Bugle Corps 2002-2005, Black Knights 2006, and ...

Great Teacher

Though at times his schedule can be a little cluttered, Erasmo is always willing to add another lesson to his calendar. He's an all-around great teacher and nice guy, and this really shows through the relaxed, chill environment he creates during lessons. He taught me almost everything I know about music, and I feel like I can come to him whenever I have a question about a certain technique or piece of music. Respect.

Amazing instructor

Erasmo has been my instructor and has taught me mallet percussion for the past year, and over that year I have improved unbelievably. He is an amazing instructor, very patient and helps explain so the student can fully understand. I have gotten very far within such little time thanks to him. I have become such a better musician from the time I started learning from Erasmo, and I have gotten many great opportunities to become an even better musician thanks to the instruction I have learned. I would highly recommend him for anyone of any age.

About Judy

I started taking music lessons at the age of 9. It began playing in the church and then I taught lessons in my home at the age of 16.

I am now the Director of the Music Department at San Diego Young Artists Music Academy. I direct two youth and children choirs, a male chorus and a great adult choir. I also sing with the Voices of Prayze who travel with Jason Mraz from time to time. As a singer, pianist and as a teacher, I specialize in Gospel piano & vocal technique and repertoire.

My daughter started piano as a beginner about a year ago with Judy. She LOVES going to her lessons and has done really well with the piano. Judy is a WONDERFUL teacher always encouraging my daughter and making learning fun! Since my mother was a piano teacher, I wanted my daughter to have strong background in theory. Judy is certainly giving her that and I am thrilled! I am very pleased!

My Favorite Teacher

I have taken voice lessons from Ms. Judy 5 years and I now am a lead vocalist at my church and have so much confidence with my capabilities now. She is the best teacher I've ever had and I recommend her to anyone ready to reach that next level in their skills no matter beginning or advanced.
Richard C. Fallbrook, CA

About Richard

I have studied the violin since I was six and have played for several decades in professional symphony orchestras, opera companies, and musicals. I've also attended many chamber music workshops and have played as a soloist at restaurants, weddings, and retirement communities. I began teaching violin in 1977. It's hard to play the violin in tune, and ten years ago I began to compose studies for my students that help them proactively to learn to play in tune. I call this approach The Pitchfixer Method, and it's based on principles of motor memory. I've used this approach with dozens of students with great results; it forms the core of the curriculum for the first several years. My current students include young children, teenagers, young adults, and mature adult beginners.

Incredible Teacher!

I am 58 and began learning violin with Richard almost 2 years ago. I am so fortunate to have found him as my first and only teacher. Richard's style of teaching is really incredible; he's skilled and experienced enough to take a student in virtually any direction they want, while making sure to keep the student focused on the essentials of learning to master the instrument. His self-published lesson books teach a student everything they need to learn in a fun and unassuming way; I learned how to read music and great technique without even realizing it.

Richard is ultimately dedicated to teaching his students how to play well and he's continually improving his teaching method. You couldn't ask for a better teacher!

DEDICATED

I'm 12 yrs.old. I am taking lessons since I was 6. I only had
Mr. Richard for a month for violin lessons. What makes him
different from my other teachers is that he developed his own
music books, and keeps revising and improving it. That really
shows his dedication as a music teacher.

He is a one of great instructor.

Last 8 months with Richard, learned more than last 2 years with other instructor. He motivate you instead of discourage you like other instructor did.. I am a senior citizen but start violin two years ago therefore I was looking for a instructor who has patience.

Cheryl P. Fallbrook, CA

About Cheryl

Playing a music instrument gives us many benefits. It trains the brain which can boost our intelligence, it gives us and others pleasure, and it feeds the soul. It is a gift for a lifetime for you or your child. I started taking piano lessons at 10 years old and loved it, continuing on and receiving my BA in Piano Performance. I was the pianist at our church from 7th grade through my freshman year of college. After graduating I opened my first music studio in Whittier and have been teaching for 25+ years. I play for many civic activities, recitals, weddings, and vocal, choral, and instrumental accompanying. In teaching, I look to identify the student's learning style and personality so that I may teach the way that student needs to learn. My students say I am very patient, fun, and ...

Bottom line is Viven Gaines is an awesome vocal coach! Her ability to make a beginning vocalist, such as myself, feel comfortable and confident, while developing my voice was impeccable. I was blessed to have her as my coach, if not for her I wouldn't have found my true voice...Allie Knows

Love Her! Truly Grateful To Have Been Her Student!

You seriously just hit the jackpot when your taken under Vivien's wing. Besides being a great singer, Vivien Lesiak is one of the most amazing vocal teachers I have ever worked with. She has always been very dedicated and very patient. Let me just say that when I was taken under her wing I was still very shy at singing in front of even one person (including her!)

Having studied with her I've managed to do things I never thought were even possible. A girl who was afraid of singing in front of even one person ends up being able to sing in front of live audiences!!! Before I met Vivien, I had NEVER done that. Besides teaching me many amazing techniques about singing, she also helped me improve the range and tone of my voice. She also watches your tongue… And I mean that! First thing she noticed when I started my first session with her was my tongue doing who knows what (HAHA!) She makes sure parts like your tongue and jaw are relaxed and she incorporates exercises to help release any tension one may be holding. Her singing technique also incorporates the importance of ones well-being in order to reach their full vocal potential, which is something that particularly helped me.

I have gained so much more confidence thanks to her in both my singing and just life in general. I am truly grateful for having worked with her and would definitely, without a doubt, recommend her to anyone. Her talent, skills, support, and genuine-kind-loving heart is sure to help anyone grow and reach their full potential.

I can sing with confidence!

I had always wanted to sing but was very nervous about taking singing lessons because I was afraid to sing in front of anyone. But Vivien made me feel comfortable right from our very first lesson together. She is very nurturing and really helped build my confidence as a singer while developing and strengthening my voice. Now I often sing in front of others, which I never thought I would be able to do. I highly recommend Vivien. She is a great teacher!
