Super responsive and super great guy. His technician was delayed in a fender bender on the way to my tuning appointment, so Alex himself jumped in the car and came to my home (all the way from El Cajon to Carlsbad!). My piano sounds great - thank you. I will use you again!

Glen comes to our home to teach our ten year old once per week. He is great with our son and has sparked an enthusiasm in our son that has him so excited about playing the guitar and learning about music! Glen is also a very talented musician - but I'm mostly impressed with his ability to connect with our son. I would HIGHLY reccomend Glen as a music teacher.

Before taking piano lessons with Rebecca, my only experience with musical instruction was through elementary and junior high. Rebecca's training and personal dedication to music makes her an extraordinary teacher. We use the Suzuki books, which I love because that's what I used for violin and flute. She supplements those favorites with really nice adult-learning-centered books on theory. As an adult learner, this was helpful, because I could read through these brief books, but then had the terminology to look up my questions online or know what to ask in lessons. The lessons are so fun and well organized. We work on the songs in the books (which included CDs of the songs so you can hear what the song might sound like if you practice enough) and she would help me with songs I brought in too. Rebecca is so kind, and is great with my five-year-old too. Really, Rebecca is an excellent music instructor. Her academic background, many years of actually playing piano and singing, knowledge of the music available and books, and variety of students -- all make her a versatile teacher, capable of helping anyone learn to the play the piano in whatever style they are interested in. Plus, she is an incredible person. I look forward to piano lessons with her.

When I started taking guitar lessons over 5 years ago, I thought it was just going to be a fun hobby. But now it's my passion. The way that RBSOM organizes this company is truly inspiring. From the lessons to the concerts, it's what makes everything for together. The teachers are amazing! They never have a bad thing to say and they really like to get to know each student on a friendship level. The concerts are also a great way to meet people just like you! You almost never have the same band for each song or concert. Age doesn't matter when you are have a great time laughing and playing some music.

US Music Lessons is great. My daughter's been receiving piano lessons for a little over a year now and it's been a positive experience. The teachers are nice and their rates are reasonable, better than similar services out there.

I just started working with Michael and I already feel more confident and have more fun playing the guitar than I had in almost a year. His immense love and knowledge of music is astounding and he translates that into lessons that make me excited to learn more. He is very approachable, highly responsive and extremely flexible. I cannot recommend Michael enough to begin or continue your musical education!

A happy well informed geek and music guy who solved all my problems with my Asus laptop and who took the lead in getting the part needed. In addition he answered all my questions with patience and expertise. A brilliant engaging young guy: he replaced my DVD drive and intalled a malwear guard in addition. Fair prices. I am very happy and wish him succes in his future career.

    Daniel was my son's cello and guitar teacher for several years. He is unbelievably talented, sensitive to each child's needs in the short and long term, and my son always both enjoyed and learned a lot from his sessions. I recommend Daniel Plane enthusiastically and unreservedly.

    About

    Hello, my name is Ishmael Meza. I have an AA-Music Industry Studies and an AA-Social and Behavioral Sciences. My main musical instrument is vocals with experience in piano and drums. My methods include music theory and tonal dictation. I will have you singing and playing better than you ever thought you could.

    About

    As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, I offer a strong set of musical tools in such things as music theory, harmony (chords), songwriting/composition, recording equipment and techniques, ear training and (if you like) musical notation, in addition to just how to play an instrument. What this gives you is a skill set that goes beyond just moving your fingers on the strings, and helps you understand how music works, how your instrument fits into it, and ultimately helps you teach yourself as well!

    About

    I offer guitar lessons for beginner-, intermediate- and advanced-level and lead guitar players. I can teach electric and acoustic but more on instrumental solo guitar.

    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.

The following are some quotes from some of my students: * The very first lesson with Jeff was easy to grasp, so much fun, and I was playing lead right away! Jeff is also very positive and is very kind and very patient! I am so happy he is my teacher! He's the best! By Candice Graham, singer/songwriter in Nashville. * I found Jeff's ad on the Internet. I called him and knew right away that he was someone who really cared and was friendly and easygoing. He had me playing the chords to my favorite song in our first two lessons! My girlfriend can't believe it! He had me feeling confident right away. He's really patient and great at explaining things, so you can understand them. I highly recommend him as a teacher! Thank you jeff! By Thomas Masters of Austin, Texas. Give me a call today and get started on your dream of being an awesome guitarist! Lessons are $30 per half-hour. Jeff
