Who are the best music teachers in Orange County?

Orange County, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2013 -- It’s always a challenge to find the best music teachers in Orange County, but OC Music, with locations in Rancho Santa Margarita http://www.ocmusiccenter.com and Laguna Niguel http://timsocmusic.com, is pleased to welcome back Stephanie Brohmer who will be teaching beginning voice lessons and piano lessons at both music store locations in South Orange County.

Stephanie has been teaching voice and giving piano lessons to children in South Orange County for over ten years. She began studying music herself when she was six years old under the tutelage of several music teachers who specialized in teaching beginners. Growing up near Rancho Santa Margarita and Laguna Niguel, she participated in Bach Festivals and Honors Recitals given by the Music Teacher's Association of California, and was also involved in the demanding Certificate of Merit program for several years.

As a vocalist, Stephanie loves to sing and has performed in Brazil, England, France, China, and the Philippines, and also directed a women's vocal ensemble that toured in Thailand and Vietnam. While Stephanie's formal vocal training is mostly classical, the truth is, she teaches basic essential vocal techiniques that are important building blocks for learning how to properly sing any/every style of music.

Stephanie's lifelong passion for music compelled her to pursue an advanced musical education degree. She earned a BA in Music Arranging from Azusa Pacific University in 2010 and also an MA in Literature from CSU Dominguez Hills. While attending APU she continued to play the piano and performed with the University Choir and Orchestra, the Oratorio Choir, as well as the schools Vocal Jazz Ensemble.

After spending this past year with her new husband at frigid Whiteman AFB in Missouri, "in the middle of nowhere", Stephanie is very happy (to say the least) to be back in sunny Orange County and to be rejoining the OC Music family. Welcome back Stephanie!

Stephanie is available for musical instruction to teach voice and piano lessons to any and all motivated Orange County students and may be contacted for music lessons in Rancho Santa Margarita at (949) 858-0900 or in Laguna Niguel at (949) 363-0155 - or online anytime at the OC Music Center website in R.S.M. at http://www.ocmusiccenter.com.

OC Music Center Upgrades To Yamaha Violin Rentals In All Orange County Locations:

OC Music Center (www.ocmusiccenter.com) headquartered in Rancho Santa Margarita, with an affiliate location in Laguna Niguel has recently purchased over one hundred brand-new high-quality Yamaha student model violins to add to their ever-expanding rental fleet in South Orange County.

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688 (PRWEB) October 22, 2012 -- According to OC Music president Jeffrey A. Gill, "the single biggest problem plaguing instrumental music teachers in the Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD) as well as SVUSD is hassling with horribly inferior quality violins. These hard-working teachers are having to spend an inordinate amount of their very limited teaching time trying to get low-quality violins properly adjusted. The tragedy is that every minute spent by a teacher fighting with a bad violin is a minute of valuable instruction time lost". OC Music has made a commitment (at considerable financial cost) to help music teachers and minimize this problem by providing only top-notch violins to aspiring young OC violinists.

The Yamaha V5-SKB Violin is considered the Cadillac of student violins. OC Music is renting-out these instruments at a price per month comparable to what many other dealers are charging for older inferior-quality violins. Following are some details of the AV%-SKB violin:

*Solid Spruce top and Maple back
*Inlaid purfling and oil varnish
*Smooth Rosewood fittings
*Octagonal Bow with Real Horsehair
*Durable ABS plastic case
*Available in ¼, ½, ¾, and full size

Fully hand-carved, the AV5's Spruce top, Maple neck, back & sides are seasoned & aged 5+ years. Upgraded Rosewood fittings not found on most instruments in this price range. Glasser™ bow included. Yamaha ABS plastic stackable case is perfect for standing up to classroom wear & tear!

Shop-adjusted by Yamaha-trained professionals to meet and exceed MENC standards. And then fine-tuned by the staff at OC Music Center. For further information about this violin or any of our other fine Yamaha Musical Instruments available for rent, please contact owner Jeffrey A. Gill at OC Music Center located at 29941 Aventura, Suite D in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688. Mr. Gill can also be reached by phone at (949) 858-0900. OC Music Center is proud to financially support public music education in the CUSD and the SVUSD through the OC Music Foundation, a recognized California 501(c)3 non-profit charity corporation.

OC Music Center of R.S.M. Opens New Laguna Niguel Location - Specializing In Violin Rentals, Music Lessons, Band Instrument Rentals and Musical Instrument Sales:

OC Music has opened a new affiliate musical instrument store in Laguna Niguel at the corner of Crown Valley and Moulton/Golden Lantern. The new store called Tim’s OC Music (www.timsocmusic.com) specializes in musical instrument sales, band instrument rentals for school and private music lessons. The franchise is 100% independently owned by Tim Gill, son of OC Music founder Jeffrey A. Gill.

Laguna Niguel, CA (PRWEB) October 22, 2012 -- Tim’s OC Music sells a variety of musical instruments including acoustic and electric guitars by Ibanez, and Samick, along with drum sets by Tama and CB Percussion. In addition to guitars and drums the store also stocks a wide variety of musical accessories; including guitar strings by D’Addario, DR and Ernie Ball and drum accessories by Remo and Vic Firth among others.

However, most important... in fact the “heart and soul” of his business according to Gill, is in encouraging and supporting brand-new music makers; particularly 4th and 5th graders who are just started with their school band/orchestra journey. To that end, Gill offers a variety of high-quality Yamaha musical instruments rentals including, Violins, Violas, Flutes, Clarinets, Saxophones, Trumpets and Trombones. Yamaha musical instruments are considered by many to be the top musical instruments in the world.

Tim’s OC Music also offers private tutoring on all of the orchestral instruments mentioned above, in addition to private instruction on Piano, Guitar, Bass and Voice. While typically most students will take one 30-minute music lesson per week, private music students do have the option to come in more than one time per week and/or may extend their lesson time to 45-minutes or even 60-minutes at an additional cost.

OC Music Center or R.S.M. is very pleased to announce this new affiliate location serving Laguna Niguel and all of the beautiful coastal communities in South Orange County with affordable musical instruments, school band rentals and private music lessons. Owner, Tim Gill invites all who live in the nearby communities including Aliso Viejo, Dana Point, Ladera Ranch and San Juan Capistrano to visit their new location at 28971 Golden Lantern in Laguna Niguel, CA 92677.

OC Music Center in R.S.M. Starts Non-Profit to Support Music Education in South Orange County:

OC Music Center in Rancho Santa Margarita has started a non-profit charity called the OC Music Foundation. The purpose of the foundation is to financially support school band and orchestra programs in South Orange County; by partnering with local PTA's in providing musical instrument rentals to students enrolled in their school band and orchestra classes.

(PRWEB) February 20, 2012 -- OC Music Center in Rancho Santa Margarita has started a non-profit charity called the OC Music Foundation. The purpose of the foundation is to financially support school band and orchestra programs in South Orange County; by partnering with local PTA's in providing musical instrument rentals to students enrolled in their school band and orchestra classes.

The goal of the new organization is to provide cash donations to school music programs via their PTA's and PTO’s, thereby ensuring that instrumental music stays alive and well in the public schools of South Orange County. Foundation president Jeffrey A. Gill, owner of two California music stores including OC Music Center in R.S.M., has personally provided almost $10,000.00 to get the non-profit up and running. According to Gill, the foundation hopes to donate at least ten times that amount ($100,000.00) to OC schools over the next decade.

Gill decided to personally take action in the OC after witnessing his once proud high school in the Bay Area, dwindle from two-hundred band members down to only twenty-seven musicians; this because the local elementary music programs were dropped by their district due to the seemingly never-ending state budget cutbacks. Gill wants to make sure that nothing like that happens in South Orange County. And so, although it has not been officially announced yet, the first recipient of musical instrument rental funds from the OC Music Foundation will be Melinda Heights Elementary School in Rancho Santa Margarita who will receive $1,000.00 for the forty band instruments they rented from OC Music in 2011.

Gill wants to encourage parents of children attending all schools in the Saddleback and Capistrano school districts to support their schools by renting musical instruments through this new non-profit foundation. Gill points out that besides helping your school, renting through the foundation is good value and has the following additional benefits:

- Low Rental Prices
- Brand-new YAMAHA Instruments
- Rent-To-Own Credit
- Hassle-Free Automatic Billing
- Convenient Hours And Locations
- An Easy Online Rental Process

The OC Music Foundation is a recognized non-profit 501(c)(3) charity organization that was founded by musician/businessman Jeffrey A. Gill, himself owner of two California music stores including OC Music Center in Rancho Santa Margarita. For additional background information on Mr. Gill, the foundation or his business in Orange County, please visit ocmusicfoundation.org and ocmusiccenter.com. You may also personally visit OC Music during regular business hours. The music store address is: 29941 Aventura, Suite D in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA. 92688 - on Empresa at Santa Margarita Parkway next to Papa John's.
