The La Mesa String School is now a two man show!

The String School is the fancy name for the private music lessons that Tim Dobranski and Jonathan Smith provide in La Mesa, California.

You can learn more about us personally here
Tim handles guitar lessons, while Jon oversees violin lessons.

 We offer professional, affordable music instruction and serve students of all ages and from all musical backgrounds. This includes all major styles of guitar and violin, as well as general musical training. Lessons are given at one of two locations in La Mesa, depending on the instrument being taught.

Our 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. We are both truly devoted to our lessons, and they're designed to be a modern take on the same fundamental ideas that every musician needs to know.

There are several good choices for music lessons in the San Diego area. However, our lessons stand out for a few key reasons:

Music editing software
To slow down your favorite songs & learn at your own pace

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

Parent progress reports
To make it easier for parents to monitor their student's accomplishments

Online Resources
Many of the worksheets and materials used are available here on this website for your convenience. More are added regularly!
