I signed up with Mindy for violin lessons and just had my first session. As a complete beginner, her explanations were very useful. I am looking forward to my next sessions.
Jeremy is a fantastic instructor. I took piano lessons from him with an emphasis on music theory. He expertly calibrated the lessons to my level of experience with both and as well as my learning speed. He has an easygoing and encouraging presence, and explains concepts in several different ways, making them easier to understand and remember. I had a lot of fun. Thanks, Jeremy!
My name is Thomas. I've been playing guitar for over 15 years now. I want to teach students to play what they want while also learning the basic fundamentals of guitar. If they want to learn their favorite pop song I'm going to teach them it, if they want to become an amazing guitar player I will teach them how to become that as well.

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.
I offer music lessons that matter. Private lessons, group lessons, and music performance are available. I have over 10 years of experience and a BA in Music from Sonoma State University.
I am a long-time professional guitar, fiddle, and mandolin player and teacher in the Bay Area. I currently teach ages 7 to 86 years old, and I give my students a solid knowledge of chords, melodies, music/tablature reading, technique, various styles, as well as an understanding of how music works. With practice, the fun begins! The more you play, the more joyful your musical experience becomes. Playing an instrument can often lead to playing with others, which is a great way to create community. I also offer a band experience through my StringSwingSingBand. I am currently on the board of Berkeley's Freight and Salvage, one of the country's top music venues.
