Jamie really is the most amazing music teacher! I hired her to introduce my 4 year old daughter to violin. Jamie is Suzuki certified and has years of experience teaching children of all ages (and adults). When she arrived, my daughter was shy, but Jamie brought her out with her natural charm. It probably didn't hurt that Jamie has a young child of her own at home! She clearly knows about attention span and how to pace a lesson. By the end of the lesson, my daughter was comfortably holding the violin and eager to make sounds. One thing which I really appreciated was the fact that Jamie spent 10 minutes afterwards filling me in on her impressions, giving me pointers as to how to nurture a budding interest, and talking through the Suzuki process. Before falling asleep later that night, my daughter said, "I love the violin!" Wow. She had shown zero interest before. This lesson exceeded ALL expectations! Jamie is a real gem!!!!
We were to host a party and wanted to make it memorable for the guests. What better way to do it than to invite an extremely talented and professional musician to help set the mood. Dave Cipriani did just this by playing an assortment of Irish and Indian music on classical and Indian slide guitars. Wow! Sitting by the fire with Daves creativity and inspiration filling the air made for an unforgettable experience! My recommendation to others hosting a party is to not hesitate your guests will thank you, just as I am now thanking Dave. Thank you Dave!!
Jason is one of the most versatile and talented folks on the planet. * Incredibly accomplished musician (pick an instrument - this guy plays em' all) * Tenacious equipment tech (this guy can fix/build anything - no joke) * Seasoned studio engineer and producer with many professional touring and album credits and has a great project studio. He's an all around nice guy who's an absolute pleasure to work with. Ring him up and let Guitar Arts take your gear, talent or album to the next level.
My daughter has been a student with Chuck for 10 years and he has molded her and her talents into an inspiring singer and musician. His communication of each individual's talents is exceptional and I would highly recommend him for any age. He has gone above and beyond our expectations and continues to work diligently to bring out the very best with my daughter.
I worked with Taylor on an original song we wrote and he did an amazing production on one of my existing songs. He is a phenomenal musician in addition to being a great producer so he knew exactly what I wanted stylistically/ lyrically and pushed me to get the best vocal and guitar sounds possible. He works incredibly fast and delivers the exact sound you want with the best production quality!
I am a currently a piano student of Barry’s and have been for a few years now. I always wanted to learn how to play the piano and was looking for a teacher that would be patient and supportive during my learning process. As I started my piano journey with Barry I quickly noted his passion for teaching and his desire for wanting me to be successful in my piano playing. He constantly encourages and reminds me when my hands, fingers, wrists (or whole body for that matter) need to be adjusted to help facilitate certain music passages that I may be having difficulties with. In addition, Barry is an active musician which I feel adds practicality to my own learning and playing experience. If you are looking for a piano teacher who is knowledgeable, meticulous (in a good way), encouraging and supportive of your piano playing goals, give him a call.
Just what I was looking for in a jazz piano teacher! He listened to my goals and is crafting a teaching strategy to make me a better musician while enjoying the process. Looking forward to more piano lessons in the future. He also teaches saxophone.
John Lyle is the best guitarist in Santa Barabara. His teaching ability is far above average. I was able to accomplish more than I thought I could ever do. He spent extra time finding the music I wanted, and writing it out by ear. He kept me interested and motivated with his talent, good attitude, and personality. He is well educated and has been to the best music schools. John can play anything and everything; and plays it well. When I hear John play he makes me want to be a better musician, it’s just captivating!
As a professor of music I see Dylan as a multi-talented musician who has a command of guitar and other instruments. He is also an inspiring and prolific songwriter. Dylan is a great teacher because of the mastery of his music skills. Dylan takes a personal approach to each student at their level of learning and he accomplishes this connection with patience and kindness. Dylan plays his guitar with passion and he has an uncanny ability to play in every style of music possible! I recommend Dylan unequivocally as a guitar teacher. Students of all ages will be inspired by his musicality and his engaging personality.
Chloe is a passionate charismatic individual who teaches the violin in a manner which compliments the elegance of the instrument itself. She keeps you focused and motivated to improve your skills and always gives constructive criticism as needed to build your playing skills. As a beginner student I would recommend her to anybody looking to start playing or to someone who is advanced and is looking to improve their skills. Chloe is also a very talented musician and has a skill for not only playing the violin but can sing and play various other instruments. She will never boast about it but you will quickly realize that she is a very talented and skilled musician across the board.
I have known Jennifer Deirmendjian for 12 years now and worked with her musically on solo projects off and on as well as performances in bands. She plays and writes violin beautifully. I have learned so much from her musicianship in rehearsals on a professional level more than anyone I have ever worked with. She is patient, kind and disciplined. I highly recommend her teaching experience as she has been my mentor and inspired me in so many ways!
Beautiful music. Wonderful musician. Easy to work with.
Rami is a highly experienced teacher and great musician. He uses a well-rounded curriculum and very efficient teaching methods. Rami pays careful attention to musicianship. My son’s tone quality and misical taste has greatly improved since studying with him. We are privileged to work with him.
I have followed her performances from church concerts to solo sets at clubs and restaurants! Phenomenal, power-house vocalist who captivates listeners with her stylings of top 40 hits, r & b, soul, pop, gospel, and any genre in between. Versatile professional with the talent to sing songs by Chaka, Aretha, Whitney, Yolanda Adams, and others, and do them justice!
Taylor is an awesome guitar instructor. I started taking lessons 2 years ago, I had never taken any musical instrument lessons before. Now I have started playing in our church worship band and I absolutely love it. Taylor is a very encouraging instructor-always focusing on the positive but definitely has challenged me which has helped me grow as a guitar player. He does a great job of balancing my lessons with practical skills and also music theory. Taylor is very good at helping me set short and long term goals which keeps me motivated to practice. Taylor is also very mindful of our lesson time and always makes sure to teach to the last minute of our scheduled lesson(and then some). Taylor is clearly a talented musician and passionate about his craft-that passion comes through in his teaching, he teaches because he loves guitar and music and he wants others to love it too. I highly recommend him as a guitar instructor!
Andrew is one of the best musicians I know. I've been taking piano lessons w/ him for just over a year & he's made the experience truly fun & has definitely helped improved my piano playing. I've also hired him to perform and he is a true professional performer, putting thought & intention into every step of the process. I would highly recommend Andrew for both piano lessons & performances.
Soulbiscuit is one of Santa Barbara's most acclaimed live acts. With Marvin Gayes keyboardist, the Spinners Guitarist and Indira Khan, Chaka's beautiful and talented daughter, No soulband anywhere can compare. If you were able to view Unicef evening of Stars w/ Chaka Khan 2010 on B.E.T. you would see Indira perform Do you love what you feel" in front of Stevie Wonder, Fantasia, Mary J Blige and Chaka.

A versatile singer and musician, Julia can add just the right touch to your event. Whether it's an acoustic love song at a wedding or engagement party, pop tunes at a cocktail party or a respectful and moving piece of music at a funeral, Julia can provide the musical atmosphere you are seeking. She's done acoustic guitar and voice for outdoor events, piano and voice for receptions and indoor events, singing to tracks for corporate parties and the list goes on and on. What she does best is the quieter, romantic or acoustic sets, which highlight the graceful musicianship and artistry of her voice and playing.
I am a Los Angeles based musician available for performance, instruction and recording. I perform regularly and provide music lessons to all ages.
We are perfectionists when it comes to music and performance. We are very well rehearsed and always deliver a great show.
