About Becky Coltman

        Becky began playing music at the age of 10. She studied classical guitar for 6 years, until she wanted to study other various styles of music from different teachers. She learned Country, Rock, Jazz, Folk, and several other genres. She attended Cal State Fullerton where she studied Music Theory and Performance. When she turned 18 she began her professional career performing and writing music. Early in her career she wrote music for multiple bands including her own. Two of the Southern Rock bands released CD's where she toured to perform with the songs she wrote!

    Becky plays guitar, bass, mandolin, resonator, ukulele, and mandola, and has learned multiple different styles for each instrument. She has also been teaching since her early twenties, where she enjoyed it very much and continues to find it extremely rewarding. She has been teaching all ages and levels for years. She always enjoys finding out what the student's goals are and working the lesson around those goals. She believes that music is an amazing thing, and that it helps students in school, and brings happiness to all who participate. She feels it's important, along with learning any particular genre a student wishes to study, to also learn to read music and tabs as well as playing the various styles. In the last few years she has been playing and writing music professionaly in and for several bands, she plays at fairs, festivals, wineries, casinos, clubs, and private parties. Becky loves meeting new people and is always excited to help people fall in love with music, whether it's for the first time or falling in love all over again.
