I rented a violin and spent 2 months attempting to teach myself. I could not figure out how to make the instrument sound as beautiful as I knew it could. Mr. Tabar spent 6 minutes adjusting my rental violin, and by the end of my first (free!) lesson, we were playing a short duet. I can now practice without the frustration of the squeaky strings or concern that I am offending anyone's ear. I am 30, and even though I recently started college, I was more nervous about calling for violin lessons than going back to school. Mr. Tabar made me feel very comfortable and I have a great deal more confidence in learning this instrument than I ever thought I would. I look forward to my upcoming lessons, and I can't wait to play more intricate music.

A mom recently recommended Coastal Music Studios - she said her boys loved it. I was doubtful as to whether our shy middle school son would feel comfortable enough to learn to sing in a group (He has a history of speech delay and some difficulty with articulation). Pam, teacher/owner, noticed he was new and asked the kids to say hello. The kids were friendly, excited to sing and enthusiastic. I was completely amazed watching my son during the first choir practice. He looked confident and happy. Afterwards, our son (who has a learning disability) said it was the first time he felt like his brain knew exactly what was being asked of him, and that he had so much respect for the teacher since she was kind AND a good leader (i.e. not one negative word/threat said to a group of ~ fifty 2nd-8th graders). Needless to say, our son immediately started weekly voice/piano lessons. I notice he is more willing to do his homework, and is more excited about life/learning overall. Also, the songs that Pam chooses for the choir are very uplifting (non-religious). My husband and I are thrilled to have found this studio - I highly recommend Coastal Music Studios.

We have a child diagnosed with slight autism. We decided to get a private teacher at home due to the experience of a teacher bullying him in a music school located in Chino. Mr. Garcia has all the patience in teaching our son and he knows how to adjust his teaching lessons with him. Our son is always excited to get music lessons with him. Mr. Garcia is also teaching our 18 y/o daughter guitar. And she is always happy and contented with his teaching techniques. Thank you for doing a great job with my children.

The slow progression at school was the reason why I decided to put may daughter up with a private teacher, whom Linda seems to be the right fit. My daughter was never corrected for her fingering while playing the cello at school, until Linda did so. It took my daughter 6 months just to play 1 piece of music at school, let alone reading the music sheet for the cello comfortably. And she was the only cello student at school too! Linda is not only very knowledgeable musically, but also very talented as she plays many different instruments. Overall, very productive 1st class with Linda.

The two years that my daughter has been taking piano lessons with Elite Musique piano teacher, Kelly, has been nothing but a positive experience. My daughter's favorite aspect is preparing and performing for the company-organized open mic nights. As a parent, I have been impressed with Kelly's knowledge and professionalism, her genuine attention to my daughter's advancement in piano (and voice) skills, and the performing and testing opportunities.

This is a great school. My daughter takes violin lessons from Eunji Lee. She has vastly improved since she started her lessons. She really enjoys the time she spends at the school.

Amazing Viola teacher, best I ever had. He has a clear cut teaching style, focusing a lot on technique. He goes beyond the sheet music and is very knowledgable about performance psychology. He's an active performer and is able to share his insight into the industry. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone.

Felix has been teaching my son now for 6 months and "wow" what a difference. My son is now included in the orchestra section that performs at the theatre plays. ( only expeienced and well taught students get this opportunity. Felix has not only given my son the proper instruction on how to play a cello, but he had to re teach him some previously taught (incorrectly taught) finger positions . That was not a easy task because my son has autism. Felix is a professional and patient and I do recommned him highly. Check him out on u tube , amazing!!! Signed, 1 proud Mom

I have been playing guitar for over 20 years, so I was looking for a teacher that could build onto what I already knew. Alan was able to show me new techniques and teach me about jazz guitar. Thanks Alan!!

About

I teach piano, voice, violin and cello lessons in a relaxed but professional atmosphere. My home studio is warm and inviting; you must love little dogs! They love kids and people in general! I teach kids of all ages, teens and adults how to read treble and bass clef, play piano, sing, play drum rhythms, or play the violin or cello. Music is healing and fun! It's a great tool to build a child's self- esteem. I have been teaching all styles of piano and voice for 40 years, including traditional music reading, rhythms, fingering for piano, and techniques for great position, pitch and tone on stringed instruments like violin and cello.

About

My name is Benjamin Rodriguez. I am an expert music teacher specializing in teaching flute, clarinet, alto and tenor saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone horn (euphonium), tuba, violin, cello, piano, organ and synthesizer. I also specialize in both classical and contemporary popular music. I have been a professional music teacher since 1989 and have taught in various school districts throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties. I have been directing school bands and orchestras to superior ratings at music festivals and regional competitions. My specialty is teaching elementary school, middle school, and high school age students. I believe that learning the basic fundamentals of music, such as scales, arpeggios, and method studies are at the core of guiding my students to becoming professional musicians themselves. Many of my students have gone on to become leaders on their own musical field, musical projects, music productions and ensemble groups, not only at a teaching level but also at a performance and professional level as well.
