We’re always so excited to introduce you to our team members here at Coastal Music. We have to interview a lot of people to find the right teachers who are both great musicians and great educators. We’re stoked to introduce you to Miss Sandra…

Sandra Taylor | Piano Instructor

Miss Sandra brings a fun and exciting international flare to our Coastal Music Teaching Team!

She started playing piano at age 3…attending the local music school in her small hometown in Austria. She continued her studies at Johann Joseph Fux Conservatory of Music in Graz, Austria…holds a Bachelors Degree from Thomas Edison State College in New Jersey and studied Piano Pedagogy at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and Saddleback Community College in Mission Viejo…all before serving as Professional Pianist for the US Navy Band…where she had the honor of performing before national televised audiences, dignitaries, governors and the President of the United States.

Sandra is accomplished in playing and teaching piano from Classical to Jazz…Contemporary Stylings to Traditional Church Music…and more. We love that she’s not only a seasoned pro, but that she is enthusiastic and empathetic in her approach to teaching and has a personal devotion to helping all of her students fully engage in the art and craft of music.

With over 20 years experience teaching piano, and a passion to see students have access to high quality education in the arts…there’s no doubt you’ll love learning with Miss Sandra!

Say “Hi” and make her feel welcome when you see her at the studio!

Regie Hamm In Concert

September 21, 2017 — Leave a comment

Coastal Music Studios is proud to present
Regie Hamm, Live in Concert!

 Admission: FREE

Date: Saturday, October 7th @ 7:00 PM

Venue: Coastal Music Studios
425 South Coast Highway
Oceanside, CA 92054

Regie is an incredible songwriter and artist, and he is bringing his Pass-The-Hat Tour to California.

This means we will “Pass-The-Hat” at the end of the concert. If you’ve had the Time Of Your Life…hook him up…if you got nothin’ but lint in your pockets, it’s on the house!

A hit songwriter, artist and producer, Regie Hamm has penned over 20 #1 hits, many of them in Christian music. He hit the Billboard Top 20 as an artist in 2003, and later went on to see his solo-written song “Time Of My Life” (sung by 2008 American Idol winner David Cook) stay at #1 for 4 months on the pop charts, making it the longest running number one pop song by a Nashville based songwriter in history – beating out Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” by one week. Oprah called it the “official theme song of the 2008 Summer Olympics,” and David Cook announced that with the song, Regie had hit a chord with people.

But the real story of Regie’s personal journey has had all the twists, turns, and drama of a Hollywood movie. He was raised in Pentecostal churches, tent revivals, and all night singings. But rose from those humble beginnings to experience unprecedented success in the music industry, writing 16 number one hits from 1994 to 2000. With Grammy and Dove nominations, and winning SESAC’s Songwriter of the Year award four times, Regie was about to launch into that same stratosphere as a pop artist signed to Universal Records.

Nothing would prepare him, however, for the drama he would face in adopting a little girl from China in 2003, embarking on a 5 year oddessy to discover her severe genetic disorder, watching his life and a career spin out of control and finally landing on the other side in the rarest of places. Regie and his family have experienced the highest of highs …and the lowest of lows, and have overcome enormous obstacles on a journey that would test not only their physical resources and their faith, but their very sanity. Regie Hamm’s amazing story is chronicled in his book, Angels & Idols, and has recently been optioned for a Hollywood film.

Here’s a little info about our Discovery Arts Camp Instructors:

Kayliana Reeves is a dance instructor/choreographer specializing in hip-hop. She grew up performing on dance competition tours and recently finished a dance instructor certificate program with Mira Costa College. She has a wide range of dance experiences in performance and guest-teaching venues, as well as self-produced videos online. Miss Kayliana has been teaching standard hip-hop classes and some special needs classes at Ariel’s Dance Studio in Oceanside for the past 3 years. When asked about teaching at Discovery Arts Camp, she said, “Few people know that I am a high-functioning special needs person myself. I have a joint/muscle condition called Hypertonia. I understand how important it is to focus on ‘ability’ instead of ‘dis-ability’ and the simplest route of inspiration is to have fun!”

The Artcadian is an innovative art studio in South Oceanside, and they are bringing visual arts fun to Discovery Arts Camp. Instructors focus on projects that are multisensory, fun, and creative. Their studio offers classes for students of all ages and is always welcoming to special needs students.

Jacob Sherreitt is a Southern California native with nearly 20 years playing music. He teaches K-6 music enrichment at Paul Ecke Central elementary and serves the whole student population, including students with physical and mental disabilities. Last summer Mr Jacob worked for Encinitas Union District’s Extended Year Program as an instructional aide in a Special Needs classroom and led music enrichment activities several times a week. When asked about teaching at Discovery Arts Camp, he said, “I think music is at its best when it is interactive, enjoyable, and inclusive.”

** Due to some more mature themes in this body of work, we advise parents to review the Hamilton storyline. Our approach removes inappropriate elements for students, but there are mature general topics that exist in Hamilton’s story and we do our best to operate in a spirit of full-disclosure with families. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
