I have been teaching music to students of all ages since I graduated with my BA in Music from UCSD in 1990. I own a lovely studio in Encinitas on El Camino Real with rooms dedicated to voice, piano, and drums. I play in two popular local bands and am well versed in pop, rock, and musical theater!
I love what I do! Watching “the lights go on” is my favorite thing, especially when the student felt baffled at first. I enjoy teaching adults as much as my youngest students and approach each lesson and student individually with the patience, respect, and kindness they deserve.
I feel the love
I understand each student is unique and that one cookie cutter approach doesn’t fit all. I take each student on their own individual merits, always compliment their achievements and try to shed light on their trouble spots. I’m a patient and caring teacher who understands the importance of individuality and I tailor my lessons accordingly.
i have a BA in Music from UCSD and have been teaching every since I graduated from there in 1990. I’ve also studied privately with Martin Grusin and Phil Larson.
Half hour lessons are $38 and you pay for four lessons at a time. I allow makeups if you cancel within 24 hours.
I’ve always been a teacher at heart. When we played “school” as kids I was always the teacher!
I’ve worked with every type of student, young and old, including students with special needs.
I really enjoy our “open mic” performances! Three times a year my students get to perform for family and friends. I love watching the proud students and parents beam over their accomplishments!
Make sure the teacher you choose is a good fit. Some students thrive with a strict teacher; others prefer a more relaxed approach. You won’t know a teachers style until you meet with them!
