Sid gave guitar lessons to my daughter (14). He was recommended to us by a friend who has a 12 year old son that Sid taught. He is a great teacher and I can tell he is good at relating to kids of all ages. It is obvious, Sid has an appreciation and a passion for music and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

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!

I have a five-year-old boy taking piano lessons and a seven-year-old girl taking guitar lessons. They love Annette, and they take pride in showing off their developing skills, which, I believe, is a testament to strong teaching and an encouraging environment.

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.

My two boys have been receiving lessons for almost 3 years from Jamie Bosenberg. They were 5 and 7 at the time when they started. She taught them not only how to play the piano beautifully, but how to read music as well! She is flexible with our crazy schedule and was able to fit us in a time block that works with our needs. She is so patient and great with the boys. She's such a great person and truly cares about my boys as she feeds her love for music to them! I would absolutely recommend her to others!

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.

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!

    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.

    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.
