I have been with Glenn for almost a year now. He is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher. In addition to teaching me how to play the bass, he has also covered theory and rhythm. I highly recommend him.

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.

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 have been a student of Greg Russell for two years. When I started I couldn’t even hold a guitar right. Every week, Greg assigned me homework to practice, but it’s not like normal homework. He would assign me actual songs to practice that required certain techniques to play. In the beginning, I would only play metal music, but with my increased skills, I started looking into different genres. I am now studying the components of funk and rap music. Greg Russell is different from other guitar teachers in so many ways. For one thing, he can figure out how to play a song just by listening to it. That was one of the most helpful things for me. If he didn’t know a song, I would play it on my iPod and he would write it down on paper for me to read, which brings me to my next subject, teaching. Greg’s teaching methods were extra helpful to me. He would go slowly if I needed to fix something, he taught me how to read tablature, and he knew countless songs from every genre of today’s music. One of the most important things that I liked about Greg was that he is skilled in playing both the guitar and the bass. So when I wanted to start learning to play the bass, he knew as much about it as he knew about the guitar. I would always come to his class knowing what song I wanted to learn. Thanks to Greg and his teachings, I am now in a band and hoping to start having performances later this year. I owe a big thanks to him. Without him, I never would have become a musician. I hope he can do the same for many more people.

My son Max has been taking lessons with Ed for several years now and we couldn't be happier. Ed is an awesome music teacher with many talents. His knowledge of playing in a band has been a great help for my son. Ed will jump in and play the bass line with Max if needed. I love that he can teach vocals, guitar, bass, and drums and get in there and jam with my son, too. Ed's awesome! I'd highly recommend him if you're looking for a music teacher. Terry

    Both my son and I have taken guitar lessons from Brian for a few years. It has been a great experience learning a wide variety of styles, from classic Rock to Jazz. And his patience has definitely helped our playing improve over time. I would recommend Brian for anyone from beginner to experienced.

    I enjoy teaching at B&H because the students and I have a private studio with air conditioning. I don't have to dodge traffic jams on the 5 or the 78 which cause delay in the schedule. There is plenty of parking in back of the store and the parents can do errands while the kids have a music lesson. If the students need reeds or new method books, the parents can purchase everything at the store. I teach all ages and all levels and I believe everyone can achieve on a musical instrument.

    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.
