About Matt

I have been teaching guitar to students on the East and West Coasts of the United States for over 20 years. I was always interested in music and made my first “recording” at the age of 2 and a half. I got serious about playing the guitar when I was 10 years old after hearing the legendary Randy

Parking Lots and Poetry, Francesca's award winning album was received in 2010 to rave reviews. “Francesca’s songs have great musicality and the lyrical quality of a real poet. We come across countless artists and Francesca’s music genuinely cuts through.” -Joe Cuello, Vice President of Creative Music Integration for MTV

The first instrument Francesca seriously studied was the guitar, starting at age 4. It is her first language.

About Francesca

Alumnae of CSULAs music department with an emphasis in classical voice and guitar, Francesca's skills cover a vast array of information. With a background and formal education in opera and "the classics", Francesca is equally comfortable on stage with a chamber orchestra as she is with a rock band.

I can't write enough good things about Francesca! She is patient, kind, funny, absolutely wonderful with children (I have a 6 year old), easy to work with, and worth every cent!
I have missed various lessons (mom brain) and she has been nothing but accommodating and understanding. There are times my daughter isn't up for the lesson, and Francesca rolls with it and reschedules as she wants this to be fun not something that feels like they have to do it. She is a great communicator and always in an energetic mood. My daughter and I love her!!!!
Heather
Francesca is wonderful. My son has developed a love of learning piano and reading music. He looks forward to every lesson. I have never had to remind him to practice- he seeks opportunities to share what he is learning and is eager to share his progress with Francesca every week. She is supportive and motivating. I know she loves to develop a love music in her students by her obvious dedication to developing their love and understanding of music.
Nicole L.
My 7 year old son won't stop singing so I figured I'd put him in some lessons. She's a good mix of patient and fun while still keeping him on track. I thought it would just be a lot of scales, but she teaches him all aspects about singing/performance and uses his favorite genres to teach them. Excellent instructor!

I'm Ella! I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Nursing and I also have a Master's in Education. I have a tutoring experience of 7+ years. At the University, I noted that the classes I treasured most weren't necessarily the topics I was interested in the most. Rather, it was the professors who made the classes amusing through their engaging yet comprehensive lessons. They were individuals who were willing to go an extra mile for the sake of ensuring that no student was being left behind. I make an effort to bring this knowledge to my tutoring approach and ensure that my students get the best learning experience. I utilize lesson plans in which I normally introduce the topic in a fun and creative way, then teach the material. I have a great passion in my tutoring practice and I strive to meet every student's individual needs. Seeing my student's happily excel in their studies gives me immense satisfaction.

As my first tubist mentor he was very patient and knowing. He has given me more insight about my tuba in areas where I lack giving me more confidence in my playing. I will for sure be working with him in the near future.

"I started taking guitar lessons for the first time 10 months ago and am thankful I found such a great teacher in Ahmad. His positive attitude and love of music helps me stay engaged and lessons are productive and fun.

One of the great things about Ahmad is he listens to you and adjusts lesson content based on the feedback you provide. His ability to listen allows Ahmad to deliver a personalized lesson plan that incorporates your goals and gets you excited about what you are working on.

Ahmad also has taught me techniques to prevent and address minor aches that come up while learning to play. He takes this seriously and shows you how to prevent and resolve any issues that come up.

Overall, taking lessons from Ahmad has been a very positive experience. I look forward to continuing working with him to get better."

"Adam did a great job teaching me the basics of the keyboard. I have no music background and have never been taught to play an instrument. I wanted to learn 1 song for my wedding. Adam learned the song and wrote the notes for me so I could easily learn them. He was flexible with scheduling and always remembered where we left off even if there were several months between lessons (due to my schedule). He was very patient even when I struggled. I would recommend Adam for keyboard/piano lessons."

Kevin gave us affordable suggestions for a guitar to buy, and she has looked forward to his lessons each week. She really wanted to learn how to play an Adele song and after a few weeks she has mastered it. Kevin is personable, reasonable, intelligent, and thoughtful. I’ve been recommending him to our friends who have children that have been considering lessons."

"I’ve played clarinet for over 30 years, and was a clarinet major in college. I started studying with Mr. Rappaport after I was out of college for several years and had moved to Atlanta, where Mr. Rappaport was playing in the Atlanta Symphony. I found him to be the best teacher I had ever studied with. His ability to help me understand the musical phrase, no matter what style of music I was working on, was amazing. I studied standard clarinet etudes, orchestral literature, and clarinet solo repertoire with Mr. Rappaport. He had the same mild, yet persistent approach with me on everything we worked on – always working to get me to play it to the best of my ability.
One thing I had always feared having to play some day was the opening solo to Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. A former teacher had been unable to help me with it. So, when a band I was playing with scheduled the piece and told me to get ready to play the solo, I was traumatized and contacted Mr. Rappaport for help. He worked with me and not only got me playing the opening glissando, but helped me to have a better understanding of the other jazzy spots in the piece. So now I can say I’ve performed that piece about 20 times, and the fear is gone! Thanks, Mr. Rappaport!
Regardless of your level of playing, I think you will find Mr. Rappaport to be an outstanding teacher!"

I've had other vocal teachers in the past 4 years and would recommend Fawn over any one else, hands down!"
