Adrian has been singing, playing the violin, and taking lessons since he was 3 years old. By age 14, he completed the classical SUZUKI METHOD and studied under Greg Hopkins (arranger for the Buddy Rich Big Band), Ken Pullig the chair of Jazz Composition at Berklee, Jack Smalley prolific television and film composer (known for his work on Charlie’s Angels), Alla Cohen professor of composition at the New England Conservatory and Yakov Gubanov protégé of Dmitri Shostakovich, to name a few. One of the most memorable things his teachers have taught him is to never stop learning and creating.
After graduating from the Colburn School of Music he decided to further his studies at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston where he graduated with a double major in Musical Composition and Business while emphasizing in Film Composition. While he’s highly specialized in violin, he also sings, plays guitar, trumpet, bass, and has been dedicated to the piano since he was 10 years old. Adrian is committed to sharing the prestigious education he received throughout his musical life with his students. Most recently, he is donating his time and assembling a master class and guest lecture series for under privileged youth and musicians living in East LA.

TESTIMONIALS

My husband and I have always been impressed with Adrian Vaca’s musical talent and we started music lessons for our son, Eduardo, when he was 3 1/2 years old. Adrian is very professional and his dynamic way of teaching continually engaged Eduardo’s attention. Eduardo was introduced to various instruments including the piano, trumpet, violin, guitar, harmonica, and drums, practiced singing and recognizing the musical notes as well as listened to classical music pieces. Adrian delivered the lessons in both Spanish and English, which was my absolute favorite part. Today, whenever Eduardo listens to music, he pauses to tell me which instruments he hears and his favorite piece to listen to in the car is Bach’s The Well Tempered Clavier. We have his music teacher to thank for that! Angel & Alma Diaz

Adrian is very passionate about teaching music. My children have not only learned how to play better, but are enthusiastic about playing. I do not have to remind them to practice because Adrian has instilled in them the love of music. His constant encouragement and patience motivates them. We are blessed to have found such a talented and charismatic teacher and mentor. Delaney Jones

8th Grade Student

Both of my daughters are students of Adrian [Mr. Vaca]. My youngest plays piano and my oldest the guitar. Recently, Adrian [Mr. Vaca] made one of my parenting dreams come true when he taught the girls to play “Stairway to Heaven” together. He knows so many instruments and has a knack for teaching kids. My girls really enjoy their lessons! Erin Smelser, Torrance, CA

Adrian is a world-class triple threat: performer, composer and music producer!

Our son has been playing the violin since he was 2 1/2 years old. He’s very passionate about his music and the violin. Over the years he’s been through various teachers. Mostly because they moved him along too slowly for his abilities. As we were looking now for yet another teacher, we were offered weekly lessons by Adrian. It was an easy choice, Adrian is a great musician, with extensive musical knowledge. As our sons music teacher, he understood where our son was musically, and was very passionate about helping him develop. Here we are today and our son has been getting weekly lessons from Adrian for the past 9 months. He has made great strides in his play, and we are very happy with what we see, and excited at what the future holds. Thank you, Adrian! Lisa and Robert Z.

In my daughters grew a curiosity of music and soon asked about the possibility to pursue the violin for one, and the guitar for the other. We looked into it and shortly after, they were both with an instructor learning their instruments. This went on for about 8 months before their instructor moved out of town and was no longer going to be able to teach my girls. They stopped their music lessons for about 4 months before by pure chance and conversation we met Mr. Adrian and found out that aside from being an exceptional violinist, he was also an instructor. My daughters were quite skeptical at first, but after one session, they were excited about music more than ever. In that one class you can see and hear the professionalism and expertise in his craft. My daughters began soaking up the knowledge and I was ecstatic to finally have found an instructor to teach my daughters the way I was taught; from reading music to proper posture and how to care for their instrument. To be honest, I’m quite amazed at the patience he has with my 4 and 6 year old daughters. The professionalism, patience, and expertise in his craft are a great combination to have in an instructor and we are more than happy to make the drive every Monday so that my daughters can learn first hand from Mr. Adrian. Thank you for the opportunity and patience! See you Monday! Edgar Macias

Adrian has lived and breathed music his entire life. He’s respected by his peers as a player, band leader, composer, producer and teacher. He’s a born leader that demonstrates both dedication and professionalism on any project he’s a part of. In this industry, both talent and character matter to gain repeat opportunities. For the 12 years I’ve known him, Adrian has had no shortage of either. Jake Voulgarides

Director of Film Music, Universal Music

I’ve been taking online lessons with Adrian thru Skype & FaceTime for about a year. I live in another state and work unpredictable and crazy hours and Adrian has always found time late at night or on the weekends to fit my lessons in. His passion for music and the learning process has forced me to really dig down to see if this is what I want (since it’s a lot of time and hard work). He’s honest, encouraging, engaging, extremely hard working and talented. I look forward to each lesson with him and my music knowledge and end products are off the charts compared to what I was doing before I started with him. I’ve grown as a person and a musician thru his friendship and his proficient musical guidance. Adrian is a humble and curious soul and I can’t fathom going to anybody else to help me along in my musical journey. Ramiro Avila
