She is an amazing teacher and you should have her as your instructor she taught me all I know about classical piano so I thank her for that.
Les
I had a great first lesson with Jessica. The lesson took place in a comfortable studio in her house. We discussed my goals and then reviewed where I am currently. She paid carefully attention to my body position with the bow and had several great suggestions on exercises to improve it. I'm already looking forward to the next lesson.

My teaching experience includes students between the ages of 8 and 70. I believe in the individual approach and decide what music books and methods to use and recommend after the first few lessons with the student. Playing the flute is a great skill that lets you appreciate and express music. It also enhances your focus and the quickness of your mind since you think of a few things simultaneously while playing. For fun you can play your favorite song, compose one or play duets with your teacher.

I've been playing for twenty years in a variety of styles and truly love the bass. I have a music degree for both jazz and classical music. I've played professionally as a freelance bassist for the last ten years. I have a wealth of lessons that are geared toward students individual needs and learning styles. My focus on fundamentals stretches across skill levels and ties technique to theory in easily understandable ways so that not only can my students play, but they understand what they're playing and how that interacts with the music they're playing to. Additionally, I'm a professionally trained Life Coach which means I have a particular set of skills that directly effect motivation and accountability.

About Adam

I've been playing and a teaching professional bassist for over 20 years and have a deep love for the bass. I enjoy working with all ages and focus on what brings my students the most joy. I'm classically trained, but have spent my career playing and teaching many styles and techniques. My goal is t

My daughter began taking in-home lessons with Adam in the winter and we’ve continued with online lessons during the pandemic. He is professional, knowledgeable, warm, and makes it fun for my daughter. He’s engaging and has ignited a love of music in her and I’d recommend his services to kids and adults alike.
Jordan
Adam was a great tutor, he tailored our lessons to elements of bass playing that I was most interested in. He walked the tight line between helping me learn and pushing me to make discoveries for myself in my bass education with him.
Andy M.
Adam is my favorite teacher ever! In my experience many teachers out there are fantastic musicians but lacking when it comes to the actual teaching skill set to communicate knowledge and craft. Adam has the rare ability to listen to you, understand where you’re coming from, and help you get where you’re trying to go—in addition to being a fantastic musician! Highly recommended.

My passion for the violin is undeniable but changing lives with this beautiful instrument and bringing the best out of YOU is what I thrive for! I create a fun and exciting atmosphere along with my 16+ years of experience to turn anyone into a passionate violinist.

I have had major events happen in my life which inspired me to become a mental health advocate/musician, which music is therapeutic and have been devoted to being someone who’s caring, diverse, determined and understanding. I make learning an instrument very exciting, enjoyable for all ages, whether you’re just getting started or already have experience (Beginners/Intermediate). It’s an unforgettable journey that you could always rely on to be exciting and efficient!

In 2003 I started playing the violin and became concert master (first chair) in my orchestra from Aug. 2003 - May 2012. During that time period, I performed in an honors orchestra from 2005 - 2007. After graduating high school in May 2012, I continued ...

Jaclyn is truely amazing, such a patient and wonderful musician and teacher. My 11 yr.old grandson has gained so much from Jaclyn's teachings. Thank you Jaclyn for you amazing talent and patience with my grandson. 🎻♥️
Vick
Hands Down the best violin teacher in the Sacramento area! From the flexibility she has with time to the amazing way she teaches. I am a beginner who couldn’t even read music. I told her that was what I was most concerned about. I was able to learn not only to read music but also the background to the music I was learning. To me that was key to learning. Will definitely recommend to anyone that wants to learn the violin!!
Gina
I highly recommend Jaclyn. My son was struggling with his practices, she worked with him and gave him the confidence to succeed.

A Fun Blues Guitar Exercise to Get You Started

If you're familiar with blues chords and ready to start trying your hand at some riffs, this exercise from guitar teacher Samuel B. will help you get the ball rolling... As an instructor (and blues guitar afficionado), I'm keen on you developing a working knowledge of the blues. The blues is the musicological basis of all recognizable forms of American music (gospel, contemporary country, soul, rhythm & blues, bluegrass, early rock n roll, the list goes on). Therefore, said knowledge will imp …
