  • Organ Also called the pipe organ, this instrument is similar to the piano and uses wind to create a deep, ethereal sound.
  • Accordion The accordion is as complex and deep as any instrument, allowing it to fit into any genre, particularly Polka.
  • Guitar Looking for guitar lessons in Temecula? You’re in luck. One of our most popular instruments to learn, students can play acoustic, electric, or bass guitar.
  • Violin/fiddle Although traditionally featured in classical music pieces and orchestras, the violin has a surprising amount of versatility and will sometimes appear in modern jazz and pop music.
  • Viola The viola is larger than a violin and produces a slightly deeper sound between the violin and the cello.
  • Cello The third largest member of the violin family delves into the mid-range, producing a deeper sound than both the violin and viola.
  • Bass The largest member of the violin family, the bass produces the lowest, deepest sound that can be modified for use in jazz, blues, and various music genres.
  • Banjo An offshoot of the guitar, the banjo is common in country and folk music.
  • Mandolin A member of the lute family, the mandolin is a double-strung string instrument that works with all styles and genres.

  • French horn Elegantly designed, the French horn consists of around 20 feet of brass tubing coiled into a complex instrument with a flared bell end. The French horn produces a slightly lower pitch than the trumpet.
  • Trombone This unique member of the brass family features a telescoping slide mechanism rather than valves, which help the trombone crease some interesting modifications in tone and pitch.

Music in Temecula

Temecula Valley has long been regarded as one of the best regions for wine in California. While Temecula may be best known for its sprawling vineyards, it also has an impressive musical heritage and some amazing concert and live music venues.

Given Temecula’s place in the wine world, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that most musical events and venues are combined with wine-tasting, or are related to the beverage in some shape or form. For instance, the Temecula Wine and Music Festival combines multiple music acts and wines from several local wineries in one celebratory weekend. Every March, the Bluegrass Festival is held in Old Town Temecula and features bands in the traditional bluegrass style, complete with fiddles, banjos, and mandolins. Another great place to catch a concert is the Miramonte Winery, which is a great place to enjoy live music and a glass of wine.
