Hailing from San Diego, Ca, Drea Castillo has 10 years of experience teaching private and group music lessons. After graduating from the University of California, Riverside with a Bachelors in Music, Drea's taught all over San Diego county as well as South Korea. At her last school, Drea worked closely with the Museum of Making Music at the NAMM headquarters and San Diego Symphony. She also started the first student composer concerts, directed the first songwriting and audio production camp, and co-founded and directed the community outreach sector, Music4Change, where students and teachers volunteered their time to perform and teach those in need in the community.
In addition, Drea has been in several bands and toured around Southern California and South Korea and was nominated for best indie rock band in 2014 WomenInCharge in Atlanta, Georgia. Before leaving Southern California, Drea was well versed in the San Diego music scene and also worked as a session musician.
One of Drea's biggest passions is teaching. She knows each student has their individual skill sets and utilizes it in building them as well-rounded musicians. She's looking forward in meeting and working with you all.
