Michelle is currently teaching our three year old, and has found a way to take his innate excitement for music and give him productive piano lessons each week! He loves going to lessons and is progressing very well.
I highly recommend Ilana. I contacted Ilana just a few weeks before our wedding and asked for some songs which were not regular for weddings. She not only said yes to all of our songs and found us a cellist quickly, but was also responsive to discuss all the details to make sure the performance go well. At the wedding, they arrived early and our guests loved their music! My husband and I feel very grateful for their wonderful presence at our wedding!
Nick is an exceptional music teacher. More than willing to let the kids follow their interest. Nick organically integrated learning about music into a process that is just a lot of fun for the kids. This is not your mother's piano lesson.
I am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.
Ronit is amazing! My daughter and I have been to a few lessons already and we're confident that she'll have us playing great soon!!
I started taking violin lessons on January 2017 from Linda Keen and I've been having a blast. She explains everything about the violin, from holding the bow and instrument, to playing it. She has so much patience and understanding on how everyone learns differently. The atmosphere is so comfortable, which helps me to relax and concentrate on my playing. To really add enjoyment to my lesson, she has played along with me, which gives me a sense of accomplishment. She encourages me to take a song and make it mine. That helps to stretch my accomplishments, which is really fun and challenging. With all of this said, Linda is also a professional violinist, which helps to keep her chops up by playing in a local string band. Anyone that wishes to learn violin, I encourage you to take lessons from Linda. She's the best!
Julie is so nice and sweet. She is a very good and professional violin teacher.As one of her students, my 8 year old son loves her and her teaching.
Very happy that I found Larisa! She is outstanding professional, enthusiastic and dedicated teacher. She pay a lot of attention to the technique of playing violin that is very important. My son is really enjoying violin lessons with Larisa.
Have started lessons with Chloe just one month back for my 9 year old. My daughter and I love the energy and enthusiasm she brings to each lesson. Her focus on technique is something I really appreciate. My daughter was learning violin for about 2 yrs before coming to studio violin, and just month I can see that her music is sounding better with Chloe's detailed focus on basics and techniques. My kid is loving it so far so thumbs up and highy recommend her!
There is an emphasis of motion freedom and connection to spirit from the beginning.
Michele is a wonderful teacher! I am taking violin lessons after several years of not playing and she is very encouraging. After years of playing classical music, I am enjoying taking lessons to explore other styles of music, such as folk music. She has an extensive background that allows for this kind of exploration.
Kathleen makes every aspect of violin enjoyable. She challenged me to be better, and made learning fun and stress free while doing so. There was never a dull lesson!
I am a versatile violinist, with a background in classical, rock, and folk music. I've studied with classical and folk teachers, and am working on a Masters in Violin Performance at SFSU studying under Zak Grafilo, first violinist of the world-class Alexander Quartet. In addition, I write music for my own band, and work as my own manager, promoter, and visual artist. I have experience recording my own music as well as other musician's work. I also play guitar, piano, sing, and dabble on the banjo. As a teacher, I've coached youth rock bands, and taught private lessons to children and adults for many years. I currently work as one of the top teachers at Music N Beyond and Acme Music, teaching violin, piano, and guitar. I also teach private lessons out of my home.
Going very well.
My daughter learns a lot from Julia. She teaches her different techniques, tips on how to play musically, and more...
I teach violin to all ages, for both beginner and intermediate. I have a B.A in music from UC Berkeley. I have performed with the California Symphony, Fremont Symphony Orchestra, Berkeley Opera Orchestra and Berkeley Symphony, and I was a member of the Vallejo Symphony for 17 years. I have returned recently to the Bay Area from Kentucky where I taught violin at the Music and Arts Center of Cultural Learning.
I am a violin teacher with a music degree from the University in Maine. I have been teaching classical violin for 4 years to students from beginner to advanced/intermediate level on the East Coast and am now available to do so here in the Bay Area. In addition to my classical violin training and teaching experience, I can also teach many different fiddle styles including Celtic, Old Time Appalachian, jazz, swing, contra dance, Quebecois, etc. I am experienced in improvisation and can lend a hand with that as well.
What makes me stand out: I teach not only technique, but I aim to inspire the student based on musicality and the artistry that makes music meaningful. I hold myself to a high standard to keep music engaging and to ensure that the student learns something meaningful each lesson. All skill levels accepted!

I've always felt that most guitar teachers are somewhat one sided. My curriculum consists of both tablature reading and musical notation. Being very strict on not only what is played but the quality it is being played at. I strive for cleanliness in my own practicing and performing and expect nothing less from my students.
Hi! I can teach guitar, drums, breakdancing, ballroom dancing, etc. I am versatile and have studied music and dancing for 10 years. The first lesson is free!
