We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!

Kimberly Allison is the best guitar teacher I have had. I have thought what it would have been like to have taken guitar lessons from Randy Rhoads or Joe Satriani. Kimberly is my Rhoads and Satriani. I'm getting world class lessons under her tutlage. I wish I would have taken my first guitar lesson with her.

Nolan has training and experience in several areas of music, but I'm glad that he has a passion for teaching. He understands that people take lessons for different reasons and have individual ambitions. I have found that Nolan’s priority is to identify these goals; to see that his students progress and have fun while they are learning. He gives my daughter constant, constructive feedback during her drum lessons, and works to teach and challenge her. He is always patient and positive, and wants to know that he is helping her achieve her goals. Nolan is professional and reliable, and my daughter is fortunate to be one of his students!

My children loved their Monday lessons with Davey! He made learning a true joy for them and they couldn’t wait to show me all they learned. While we were going through a divorce, Davey brought with his lessons an escape for my girls to feel confident and happy through music. We will miss him! Thanks Davey!

Music lessons with Steve

Verified review

My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.

Steve is a great drummer and has a lot of knowledge to share on playing the drums. It is great to learn from someone who has so many years of experience and his lessons have been beneficial to my playing without a doubt.

Cindy is great. She is quick to respond and works with the client to arrange lesson times. She worked so well with my son and brought out a part of him I don't get to see often (he has Aspergers). I would recommend Cindy to anyone that is interested in one on one lessons for young or old.

About

I'm a private drum teacher specializing in children ages 7 and up. My program is a fool proof method of what I call "break down to build up" meaning that we strip the drum set down to just the snare drum and we learn each drum one at a time. So that we are not overwhelmed with the whole drum set all at once. I'm in the business of building strong self esteem, so let's get to drumming. If you cant come to my studio in vista then I will come to you especially if you have other children. If you don't have drums I will provide my own until you can afford your own.

About

We offer professional and fun classes with a teacher of 30 years. We provide recitals and stage shows twice a year. We have drum, piano, and voice students. We have art classes by a teacher and Disney artist.

About

I teach guitar, bass guitar, piano and drumset. I go to my clients and teach them what they wish to learn. Whether they want to become the next Jimi Hendrix or if they just want to have fun and learn something new, I can teach it. I can teach how to read music, music theory, how to write songs, and music history.

About

I have been teaching drum and guitar lessons for the last five years. I studied music and voice at Cal State Fullerton. I get my students ready to play at gigs quickly, because I sing and play guitar at lessons so that we can cover songs during the sessions.
