Poway Music Lessons

Meet a couple of our instructors in the Poway area!

Yaniv F


A native of San Diego, Yaniv participated in various music programs at a young age. After learning to play drums in elementary school, Yaniv went on to learn how to play other percussion instruments, including piano, vibraphone, and marimba. He has participated in and won various performances and in-school competitions. From these successes, he arranged at 16 for his music to be distributed to platforms such as iTunes, Napster, and Rhapsody. Following on these successes, Yaniv began composing music for short documentaries for Kawasaki and the MTV show Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory. Inspired by his past successes, Yaniv remains dedicated to composing and looks forward to sharing his passion for music with his students.
