The String School is simply the fancy name for the private music lessons offered by Tim Dobranski in La Mesa, California.

You can learn more about me personally here

 I offer professional, affordable music instruction and serve students of ALL ages and from most musical backgrounds. This includes all major styles of guitar, as well as general musical training. Lessons are currently given at my home in La Mesa. There are several good options for guitar instructors in San Diego, but I truly believe my lessons are unique. Here are a few of the innovations that I offer:

Music-Editing Software
We can slow down your favorite songs & learn at your own pace! This is especially useful for students with little to no musical experience. Computer software has made learning to play an instrument more accessible than ever before!

Office Hours
A first in the guitar-lesson business, as far as I'm aware! I am available for extra time on weekends in addition to your scheduled lesson time! This time is meant to address problems with your practicing, clarify concepts we've gone over, or for general help with your instrument! For more information about my office hours, please click here.

Online Weekly Lesson Log
To make it easier for parents to monitor their student's accomplishments OR for adults to keep track of what to work on, each student has online access to a document to track what we did, why we did it, what to practice for the upcoming week, and tips to make progress faster! You can view a sample of this log here!

Guitar Rentals
The most affordable in La Mesa, to get you started before making a big investment!

Color-Coded Notes System
A simple and easy way to make the most of your lessons by emphasizing tips and areas to improve through a simple color coded note system. Sample coming soon!

Online Resources
All of the worksheets, materials and even slowed-down song files used in your lessons are available online for your convenience 24/7. I pride myself in being technology-literate and strive to make my lessons as connected as possible for your convenience.

A Commitment To Constantly Improve 
The most important thing that I can offer my students is the promise that I am always looking for new and unique ways to improve my lessons! At least once per year, I roll out a series of changes designed to help you learn faster and more comfortably! 

My goal is to combine the best of two worlds: the integrity and professionalism of a neighborhood business with the friendly and intimate communication of a one-on-one local music instructor. I am truly devoted to my lessons, and they're designed to be a modern take on the same fundamental ideas that every musician needs to know.
