I have been a student with Kimberly for ten years. I have been taking blues guitar lessons from her weekly. Kim is extremely professional. She tailors her teaching to the students interest and playing style. She is very patient and often goes the extra mile to help students progress. I have been a dedicated student because of this. I have had the pleasure of playing guitar with some of her other students in ensemble classes who all give her praise for the way she conducts business and teaches her classes. I highly recommend Kimberly Allison of Starliner music to anyone wishing to develop their skills in music.

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.

Miss Marguerite is a great piano teacher. She approaches her music lessons through a variety of techniques and methods that always keeps our daughter engaged. She teaches her music theory, music appreciation, rhythm, play by ear and the ability to read music. She differentiates the needs of each of her students and taps into their styles and preferences. Our daughter has learned a lot under her tutelage.

Both of my children have been taking lessons with Rachel for the past 3 years and she's been awesome! My daughter takes singing lessons and my son has been taking saxophone lessons, and they both love it! She's really professional and fun to work with. It's also been nice that she teaches a lot of instruments so we can have one teacher come to the house to teach both of the kids one after the other. I couldn't recommend her enough!

I have two nieces and one nephew. Taking lessons at home, my eldest niece started reading music, learning guitar and piano several days after her kindergarten ceremony. By the time she entered 6th grade she outperformed me in many areas even though I was also taking lessons from Ernest. He always shows great care in the process of learning, practicing, and mastering the instrument. My nephew ended up picking up the guitar and my youngest niece acquired the language of music & instruction possibly as early as her crawling under the keyboard and listening to her older sister’s lessons over the years. By the time the youngest entered 1st grade she was composing legitimate piano pieces and all three kids eventually shined as the brightest music stars in their K-8 school. Ernest is sensitive to the needs and interests of the learner. Whenever possible he provides additional time. His foresight and attention to detail facilitates the maturation process and sustained growth available only through the delivery and mastery of his craft. My niece expressed gratitude by giving him drawings of the sun, clouds, hearts, trees and smiley faces beneath the words, “tHANk yOu ErnSt.” Grandma also happily made snacks and treats for Ernest. At this time I can’t think of anything for Ernest to improve because the proof can be heard in the music. I will be more than happy to discuss our music lessons with “ErnSt.”

Luciano is devoted to teaching music and understanding music. He is patient and encouraging. I really enjoyed my lessons with him and I would highly recommend him to anyone who asks me. I look forward to studying classical guitar with him again when my schedule becomes less hectic. Jean Powell

Lorilee was my daughter's piano/ music teacher at her high school. She is full of life, and is a bubbly enthusiastic person. She lives for music. I have been to a few concerts in Manchester, England with my daughter and had attended a masterclass for the children by an eminent pianist. My daughter's knowledge of music and her piano playing had improved greatly. She is still studying music and engineering at her University.

Knowledgeable, active, and punctual instructors. I took class with Lyndon through the school UCI, and continued to have private lessons with him. Lyndon has knowledge in different styles of guitar. He always encourages students to practice steadily at their comfort pace.

I had already been messing around on the guitar for a while, but decided to finally take the plunge and start taking bass lessons here in LA. Simply put, there is nothing that Roman can't do or teach on the bass guitar. Roman formulated a lesson plan centered around my own experience and goals as a musician, which increased my understanding of music as much as my ability to play. In taking music lessons from Roman, you not only get an incredibly knowledgable and experienced instructor, but you also get a funny, laid-back guy who is willing to jam along and offer insight into any musical piece you put in front of him. Roman is truly the total package, and I can't imagine taking music lessons from anyone else.

Chase is an amazing music teacher. He is so well versed in many instruments which allows the lesson and growth of the student to blossom. He is a full circle educator. High recommended! I love to hear my son play his drums!

Lucas has given guitar lessons to our son (now age 9) for a few years & added drums about 8 months ago. His progression has been amazing. Lucas has been both professional & flexible...perfect for our busy multi-kid schedule. Our son really enjoyed having him as a teacher!!!

I heard Brett perform with a group of musicians who were jamming and improvising. I was so impressed with what Bretts part added to the group that I looked him up later and asked if he gave guitar lessons. Inhad been looking for someone who could teach me to improvise. I was stoked to find that not only did he teach, but he worked at a music school as well. I was thrilled to be able to study with him, and amazed at all the stuff I had never been taught ( I've been playing for many years). He is incredibly patient, and has a very succinct and easy to understand was of explaining the theory part of the lessons. In only a few lessons my repertoire of tricks has gone up substantially and I look forward to more lessons.

Tim is certainly an incredible musical talent. The Lord has gifted him not only to lead others in worship, but also to lead others into the full potential of their musical giftings. As a member of the worship team he leads at church, I can attest to Tim's love for Jesus, as well as his passion, commitment, and dedication in developing others. Everything Tim does is in excellence and to the glory of God. What a blessing to the Body of Christ! You will not be disappointed.

Oliver took me on as a student returning to the clarinet after 60 years! Building on a positive experience of having played in my high school band in the '50's, Oliver is guiding me back into the enjoyment of learning music. He is patient yet challenging, promoting excellence of tone and technique. His ability to teach with a light touch and a sense of humor makes being his student a genuine pleasure. Then, too, for a senior person, the brain fitness benefit is a real bonus.
