Studio Music Group Opens Second Location in Goleta

Aero Camino facility offers bands space to practice or rehearse for tours

The Studio Music Group now has two locations to serve the community, one for music lessons at 270 Storke Road, Suite 8, in the Storke Plaza in Goleta, and one where bands can practice or prep for tours, any time day or night, at 152 Aero Camino, Suite D, in Goleta.

Owner Steve Stockmal has been teaching and performing music in the Santa Barbara area for more than a decade. With seven books written and published on music, he brings a lot to the table, striving to make each performance and each lesson special.

A Santa Barbara native, Stockmal has toured all over the world as a drummer, singer and guitarist. He has performed a wide variety of musical styles in almost every venue one could imagine — indoor, outdoor, intimate clubs, arenas and concert halls.

An honor graduate of the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, he brings his vast musical experience, personal touch and humor to his lessons. Since opening in April 2010, parents continue to support Studio Music Group in the Santa Barbara, Montecito, Hope Ranch and Goleta communities, to obtain stellar music lessons for their children.

In this economy and with music programs being cut from school curriculum, small businesses such as Studio Music Group not only help the community with much-needed music education, but also provide the rehearsal space and support to make the learning experience richer.

“Every lesson I teach includes the full gamut — notes, technique, relaxation, repetition, learning tips, life lessons, and most important, laughter,” Stockmal said.

For more information, contact Stockmal at 805.453.7337 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
