- About Us
Music remains one of the greatest art forms known to humankind. Have you ever wished you could strum a guitar like Jimi Hendrix or tickle the ivories like Rachmaninov? Do you think that music is reserved for only a select few talented individuals? Think again! With hard work, practice, and the encouragement of a knowledgeable instructor, you can sing or play with the best of them, and California Music Studios can help you on your journey.
For over a quarter century, California Music Studios has dedicated itself to promoting musical education by helping students find qualified teachers for in-home or studio music lessons in Tustin. Each instructor we work with must go through a stringent screening process that includes a thorough background check and personal evaluations. This ensures that every instructor we work with meets our high standards for your satisfaction and trust.
Each teacher is then matched up with a student for instruction. We have a 97 percent or better success rate in student-teacher matching. We believe that a good relationship with your instructor expedites learning and makes for a more positive experience. However, if at any point you aren’t happy with your teacher, we will happily swap him or her out for someone more suited to your needs.
We work with teachers who specialize in private, individual music lessons. These lessons are built on one-on-one interactions and customized lesson plans. You don’t have to worry about lagging behind or rushing ahead. Your instructor sticks with your specific pace and learning style to make steady progress toward your personal goals.
The network of over 350 teachers we work with offer a wide array of lessons in various instruments, genres, and disciplines. Whether you want to strum a ukulele or take piano lessons in Tustin, we will have no problem finding the perfect mentor for your musical education.
Get into the habit of warming up before every lesson and practice session. Warming up stretches out your fingers and gets your mind ready for the main play session. Warming up is even more important for wind instruments. Playing with cold lips not only produces a strained sound, but also makes you much more susceptible to injury. You can actually split your lips from straining too much, so take a few minutes to warm up properly.
Musical instruments are fickle. That’s partly what makes them sound great, but that also means they are susceptible to things like dust, weather, and humidity, all of which can throw it out of tune. If your instrument has trouble keeping its tone through the course of a single song, there may be other issues at hand.
If you have consistent problems with keeping your instrument tuned, talk to your music teacher.
