Simpli Music has moved from in-person instruction to virtual instruction starting March 25. 

All new students must sign up for a free consultation here.

All returning VIRTUAL LESSON students must reserve their first summer lesson time slot here by June 6th.

Your lesson will be at the same time each week until you have completed 6 lessons.

Simpli Music serves as a vital musical hub for urban students in the San Francisco Bay Area with a combination of churches and schools participating in private instruction, summer workshops, and concerts each year. 


Simpli Music's education was founded by Loretta McBride in 2006 using the foundations and principles of the Suzuki Teaching Method while infusing improvisational techniques available to the entire community. In 2013, Loretta McBride and Vivian Francine expanded the program to church band, private lessons and string orchestra afterschool programs.
