Craig has been professional in scheduling times. He has a nice studio with tools to help you learn. Most importantly, I have learned much about music and how the guitar adds to music rather than the other way around. Craig's passion for music is evident in our lessons.
My name is Pablo Mirada. I spent 2014 year working with Maestro Vignati as a private teacher. After one year studying with him, he invited me with a consistent amount of scholarship to participate in the International Lyric Academy in Italy to experience the real Opera market. This was my first opera and my first major singing event. I was able to work with him also over the summer and participate in 2 master classes he offered. As a seventeen year old I was amazed by the talent that Maestro possessed. It was an experience that I am hoping to relive in the future and I wish Maestro Vignati coming back to California to give me the opportunity to work with him more often.

I am a piano teacher who has been teaching students of all ages and levels for fifteen years. I offer thirty-minute to one-hour lessons once each week. I believe in giving students a variety of music styles from which to choose. I also give group lessons once a month.

Should enough interest arise, I will be hosting recitals twice a year. The recitals are optional. If you have any questions or would like to set up a time for a trial lesson, please feel free to contact me. Music is a fantastic way to learn coordination, focus and a skill that will be with you for a lifetime. It is great outlet and a calming force as well! It doesn't matter what the age or level is, music is for everyone. I love to share this experience with all who seek it!
