Let's learn music and have fun! Students of all ages and abilities study music at Giacoletti Music! With our variety of courses, exceptional teachers, and welcoming student environment, Giacoletti Music is the place for you.  We offer private lessons in piano, guitar, ukulele, drums, voice, violin, cello, viola, and harp. For more info, please call or text our school director, Melinda Polino, at 760.637.6303 


Our mission statement is to offer quality instruments and lessons at affordable prices (read, we match the big box stores/internet pricing on most instruments).  We inspect every instrument to ensure they are at their best before they are put on display.  We are the mom and pop where you want to shop.  We hope to see you soon!

Our Story

We love helping people identify and reach their goals

We’re proud of the reputation that Giacoletti Music has gained over the past 42 years --a place where students and instructors alike can thrive and make the most of their talents. 

Students from Giacoletti Music School have gone on to study music at universities, become paid professional gigging musicians, and have composed music for movies.  


There are many studies that correlate the study of music and advanced learning. We have seen evidence of this through the years with many of our students performing well academically and many going into the fields of mathematics, medicine, and engineering.


Giacoletti Music is an ideal school of music for students to become disciplined, expand their potential, and to experience the joys of learning an instrument with a caring and qualified instructor. 

We serve students and musicians from Oceanside, Carlsbad, Vista, Encinitas, Camp Pendleton, and beyond.

Group Classes

Learning together

These students are on a music adventure! Are you ready to start your Piano Adventure?  We offer piano classes for your Preschooler (4 Years and up)-2nd grader who is ready to learn to play the piano, learn music theory, music history, and more. Students engage in many different activities in these fast moving classes, so they stay engaged, learning, and having fun! These classes prepare your student for future private lessons on the instrument of their choice.

We also teach group guitar for children 7 and up and ukulele lessons for children 4 and older, as well as group lessons for teens and adults of all ages. All classes are well rounded with a wide variety of music, music theory, music history, and a lot of fun! These classes are meeting online at this time.

Music Together

Growing Together

Due to the nature of these classes, they are temporarily on hold.  


We are proud to offer a fantastic general music class for your infant-5 year old. Music Together TM is a skillfully designed music program, to prepare students for future studies in music.  Students sing and play rhythm instruments and learn to identify many different elements of music. They don't realize what they are learning of course, they are just having fun! 


These classes are offered in 10 week sessions and are very popular. Next session TBD. Email or call for up to the minute information.
