Guitar Lessons

You don’t need to look anywhere else!!!I can’t say enough good things about Giacoletti Music Center. Melinda reached out so quickly and our initial conversation put me at ease. Getting set up with them was so painless. I had my first lesson with Cindy and she is phenomenal!!! Even though I’m across the country and it’s via FaceTime I feel comfortable and it’s worth every penny. I can’t wait for my next lesson.

Giacoletti has always been very professional and amazing value for what she has learned over the years. Our daughter has been taking Lessons with Melinda Polino for 6 years. She has developed so well over the years and really has a love for Piano. It’s always incredible listening to her play. We recommend Giacoletti for anyone who has a child who wants or shows interest in music.

Our kids, 6 and 10, started taking group and private lessons in 2019 at the convenient new South Oceanside location, and they immediately loved the fun and personable instruction! As parents, we trusted the Giacoletti reputation, and appreciate the safe and welcoming environment cultivated by the new owner of the center, Melinda, who is extremely knowledgeable, kind, patient, professional, and was able to seamlessly transition and lead her team and students to online lessons when needed. It is important for us to support local family-owned businesses and we know that our kids are in good hands and thriving in their lessons with teachers Tzytle and CindyLee. We are excited to meet back in person for voice, piano, and ukulele lessons (and Ukulele Date Night!), but we also love the flexibility and ease of learning online from great instructors right in our home...perfect for our busy family! It's also super convenient that there is a well-stocked and competitively priced retail & rental store right there at the music center...no need for Amazon when we can shop local!

I am taking both voice and ukulele, both teachers are fantastic. They are professional yet the atmosphere is very comfortable. I have enjoyed lessons both online and in studio. Either way, I could not be more delighted. They seem to really care about each individual student. I feel I have a relationship with my teachers and that they honestly care about my personal success. I am very pleased with my experience, and look forward to my weekly lessons.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We don't charge an enrollment fee or recital fee. And tuition is just paid month to month. Easy!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I personally talk with each family as we get started in lessons to make sure we have goals in place and plans to reach them.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Our team is made up of award winning teachers, degreed musicians, and recording artists. All teachers complete Giacoletti teacher training prior to teaching for Giacoletti Music Center. Students learn best when they are relaxed and having fun! So our teaching styles follow that lead.
