Teachers

Our teachers bring their love of music to both the young & the young at heart. They are active musicians with years of teaching experience. Each teacher brings their unique personality to lessons that move at the students own pace. It’s our honor to serve our community.

Randall Sena
Guitar, Bass, Drums, & Ukulele Teacher
“One cannot speak of a Lompoc music scene without mention of Randall Sena. Though the Santa Barbara-born Sena has always felt like a bit of a foreigner in Lompoc, where he has lived since the 2nd grade, he has certainly made it his own. Known as the go-to music man in his town, Sena is the co-founder of Certain Sparks Music, a Lompoc music-lesson and recording-studio hub founded in 2006 with friend Brandon Bridge. Since it opened, Certain Sparks has been a high-gravity body around which the Central Coast’s musicians revolve (…) A modest man, Sena has a knack for humor and a bounty of kindness. There’s a reason some call him the Musical Mufasa. “I try to be the dude I wish I would have met when I started making music,” he said.” – Richie DeMaria, Santa Barbara Independent 10/8/15
