Strings and Piano
San Diego native Heidi Fleischbein is a passionate music educator with a specialty in piano and strings. Ms. Heidi has been involved in music her entire life, starting lessons at the age of 3. Over the years, she learned to play 5 instruments: piano, harp, violin, viola, and cello, eventually receiving her degree in Music Education. Her dream is to share her love and knowledge of music with students by teaching them to perform a wide variety of genres with great musical detail while working together and having lots of fun!

For many people when they think Giacoletti Music, they think of Roy Good. Roy has been a fantastic and loyal employee of Giacoletti Music for many years. He has worn many hats at Giacoletti, and the one he wears most now is that of ukulele instructor. You can find Roy teaching both group and private lessons, as well as an occasional Saturday Strum drop-in class. Roy's warm and friendly teaching personality can help anyone break into playing the ukulele. Students are always left wanting more. So grateful to have Roy Good on the team!

Melinda brings many years of teaching experience to the team at Giacoletti. She is the Chairperson for The American College of Musicians for Oceanside.
She returned to Giacoletti Music as an educator determined to pass on valuable knowledge and skills to our students and have fun doing it! She is excited for the opportunity to reach our community with music and be a part of helping people reach their goals. She is continuing to build a team of educators who love music and love to share it with their students.
Guitar, Ukulele, and Banjo
Brian Fleck has been part of the Giacoletti Team since 2010. He studied Classical Guitar under Fred Benedetti at San Diego State University and graduated with a B.A. in performing Arts in 2007. Learning the techniques of guitar have been the foundation of lessons he provides. He understands that string instruments take time to learn and provides the right repertoire to build strength while engaging his students to play what they really enjoy about music.
Brian has performed with Rock, Classical, Blues, Country, Church, and Reggae artists. He’s a very well rounded musician with a background in many styles. Many of the groups he’s performed with (in S.D.) have been nominated for San Diego Music Awards. Now in Tennessee, he teaches virtually for Giacoletti Music and brings excitement, knowledge, and a love for music to all he works with.
