Rancho Santa Fe Music Lessons

Meet a couple of our instructors in the Rancho Santa Fe area!

Lina T

Lina started studying music almost as soon as she could walk. She has been classically trained in piano since the age of 4 from various pedagogues originating from the Moscow Conservatory of Music and has completed Certificate of Merit for the instrument. She took up violin at the age of 10 after years of admiring the instrument from the audience of orchestral concerts, eventually playing in El Camino Youth Symphony, her school’s orchestra, and New Millennium Chamber Orchestra. She has performed and competed with both instruments. She taught violin, viola, and cello to elementary school students throughout her high school career in both group and private settings and has continued to teach for privately the past four years. Her teaching style puts heavy emphasis on music theory and sight reading abilities, in order to help students to become not only great performers, but great entertainers as well. Lina is working towards a B.S. in Probability and Statistics at UCSD.

Nathan B

Nathan began his musical journey at the age of 5 when he began taking piano lessons. His musicality expanded immensely when he joined the Poway High School Emerald Brigade Marching Band and discovered his love for composing. Since then Nathan has composed music ranging from single piano pieces to full orchestra scores and continues to write in his free time today. Currently at San Diego Mesa College he is involved in the vocal ensemble, the Applied Music Program, and volunteer tutoring. He is pursuing his Associates Degree in music and plans to pursue his love for music composition, hoping to one day achieve his dream of becoming a film composer.
