Teaching Philosophy: The main thing is to have fun and enjoy the music.

Get to know Manny

Emanuel Esparza finished his undergrad studies at the University of Redlands School of Music  in music education under the direction of Dr. Eddie Smith.  Emanuel, a lifelong Inland Empire resident, learned to play the flute and the saxophone in various school band programs.  After his high school graduation, Emanuel worked at Fender Musical in Corona.  He then joined La Sierra University's music department as a volunteer musician,  performing with the orchestra, wind ensemble, jazz band, jazz combo, and the flute and saxophone studio quartets.  His time at La Sierra University inspired him to pursue music education; afterward, he enrolled at Mt. San Jacinto College and majored in music.  He was also active in various musical groups at Mt. San Jacinto, performing major concertos and sonata works.  With his Redlands education, Emanuel hopes to give back to his community by teaching music in public schools, along with improving his skills as a saxophonist.
