Isaac Padilla

Isaac Padilla is stationed in Chula Vista, California, the first place that introduced him to the joy of music and playing Viola/Violin. Throughout the years, Isaac joined his middle school/High school orchestras, then later on joined the Sweetwater District Symphonic orchestra in which he joined other students in playing around his district for schools that didn’t know about the beauty of playing music in a symphonic orchestra in hopes of the music programs getting more recognition and allowing them to grow. Isaac first started teaching in the program he had joined, The San Diego Youth Symphony, where they gave opportunities for more advanced students to teach in the younger ensembles. Later, music teaching institutions hired Isaac to give private lessons in groups or only 1 student at a time. He also has taught at Castle Park middle school as assistant Band Director and assistant Orchestra Director. Teachers that he studied with include: Lee Wolfe (professional musician from the Grossmont College Symphony), Nico Hueso (professional all around musician with load of studio and orchestra experience), Alyze Dreiling (professional viola player, director and San Diego Symphony musician). Currently, Isaac is not studying in school due to Covid-19 related issues. Isaac can teach very young to old beginning and advanced students, no one is too young or old to learn music! Making teaching fun but focused is a teaching style that he practices with his students but is very flexible to change for his students. Isaac is really into a lot of music, which means he can teach kids/adults music from video games, movies, pop culture, rap, etc!
