Hear why students and their parents like to take music lessons at San Ramon Academy of Music

Ann

The convenience is really great. The fact that my son can sign in on his own has helped him develop a sense of responsibility to be on time and complete his lesson.

Amiel

The instructors have great passion, not only for music, but imparting their passion onto the students. I love to see the joy you have when our son learns and reaches his milestones.

Mandakini

Inka is excelling better with digital classes. She’s practicing more and I love it. There’s something about remote lessons that makes her feel more responsible and she even practices before class.

Starting with your very first lesson with San Ramon Academy of Music, you’ll notice our attention to detail and commitment to providing you with the best experience possible.

This includes:

Isaac Levine

Isaac teaches violin and viola in the South Bay. His students have achieved high levels of ABRSM accreditation, and have auditioned and played in both the Fremont (FYSO) and Hayward (YOSAC) Youth Symphonies. More fundamentally, Isaac’s students gain a sense of accomplishment as they achieve fluency in string playing.

Isaac attended UC Berkeley for undergraduate work, and received a Master of Music in String Performance at Boston University.

Isaac believes in using humor as an essential teaching tool. Laughter makes lessons more enjoyable — which helps students stick with it — but that’s not even the main benefit. More critically, having a sense of humor accelerates progress.

As a performer, Isaac has played for regional symphonies in New England, and performed with festivals in Breckenridge, Colorado; Charleston, South Carolina; and Spoleto, Italy.

Lauren Park

Born in Seoul, Korea, Pianist Lauren Park began studying piano at age 4, and violin a year later. She won numerous national competitions, including the top prize at the Young Artist Music Competition. She provides piano, music theory, and composition lessons to students of all ages.

Lauren received her undergraduate degree under the supervision of Dr. Sara Laimon at McGill University. Received her Master’s in Music Education Research under the supervision of Dr. Isabel Cossette. Upon graduation, Lauren worked as a piano faculty and a Suzuki certified instructor at McGill Conservatory of Music, Montreal, Canada before moving to the United States.

Despite her very busy schedule, Lauren is trying her best to enjoy her life outside of work. She loves dancing, hiking, skiing, making, and trying different foods!
