About Rulon

Music is a joyful act of sharing, so I try to teach and perform with this philosophy in mind.

I have 18 years teaching experience and have toured the U.S. extensively as a performer, composer and teacher (working with people of all ages and skill). Recently, the U.S. State Department contracted me to represent the U.S. in a tour of Nicaragua teaching and playing for the International Jazz Festival with my band.

My musical passions include Latin music, gospel, and modern Music. I toured for three years with a Celtic trio, have played lead alto/tenor books in numerous show and big bands, and have rocked it with Soul, Ska, Punk, Funk, and Latin Bands of every shape.

In addition to my own music, I composer, perform, and record music for film, TV, video games and other creative ...

I am an adult who has little music background. Before signing up the lessons, I was hesitated whether a teacher would be impatient to teach someone like me. A friend who plays in orchestra encouraged me and went through several sax teachers' profiles and picked Rulon for me.

And it turns out that Rulon is really great. Without doubt on his professional knowledge, but also that he is a very encouraging. He has more faith in me than I have in myself. He explores my strength and uncovers it; he also finds my problem and tailored a procedure for me to improve.

I would highly recommend him as a teacher. But wait, please don't compete with my schedule. :-)

Songwriting
Great teacher who allows his students to express their creativity.

This summer I started getting into digital music composing and began writing my own songs. Rulon has been very helpful in focusing my ideas and teaching me how to be a better composer. He has helped me develop my song ideas and taught me to focus on the melody and song structure rather than on effects and instruments. I really enjoy my lessons and like that Rulon provides critical feedback of my work but allows me to develop my own ideas. I have learned a lot from my lessons and feel that my songwriting skills have improved substantially.

Great teacher, great communicator, professional all the way

When choosing a teacher, it's very important to have someone who can teach at multiple levels of experience, Rulon does this as well as helping to establish goals and assuring you meet those goals.

About BJ

I grew up studying violin under the Suzuki method for over 13 years at the University of Louisville School of Music Preparatory School, my listening and playing skills were nurtured at the young age of five. I performed with the Louisville Youth Orchestra and other ensembles increasing my skills and confidence playing the instrument. A confidence that I can bring out in you as your violin teacher.

Beyond the classical foundation of Suzuki's collection, the violin has afforded me a unique opportunity to express myself in a wide range of musical styles and venues:

* I have supplied harmonies on acoustic covers and classic rock numbers at college open mics and coffee shops.

* I rocked out with an indie-pop band on famous Seattle stages like The Showbox, The Crocodile and ...

I have learned more in 3 lessons with BJ than I did in a year with my last teacher. He has clear and helpful exercises to fix my bad habits in how I bow. We aren't into actual playing yet, but I expect things will progress well for me.

His place is easy to get to and comfortable. He is prompt, organized and manages to be efficient at fitting a lot of teaching into the time we have. I did shift from half hour lessons to a full hour, as the half hour was not enough time to really finish a topic for us.

I'm very happy with the experience and am so glad to be playing again.

Music Performance
This guy is a true PRO

I have not personally taken lessons from B.J. Montoya, but I am a colleague of his and have created and performed music with him off and on over the last ten years. WHat I can confidently and boldly say is that B. J. is masterful at the violin and fiddle, and truly knows all aspects of the language of music. IF you take lessons from him, you won't just learn songs; you will learn artistry, technique, music theory, ear-training skills, music appreciation, and most of all a PASSION FOR MUSIC - which B.J. cannot HELP but to pass on to his students. I say this because I have always respected and admired his true passion for creative muical expression on the violin.

Besides all that, B.J. is a sincere, super-friendly, and laid-back guy who will help any student - at any level - feel comfortable and at ease. His ability to offer warm support and encouragement - AND make the lessons FUN - will surpass any other violin teacher - I can pretty much guarantee that.

I highly recommend B.J. as a music teacher.

Will is a highly knowledgeable and relatable instructor

With Will’s patience and easy instruction I am slowly learning the instrument that I love. Will is always prepared for our session with hand outs and a lesson plan. I appreciate that he is willing to take our lesson in a different direction then originally planned depending on my progression. His style is very laid back while still having expectations of your development which is nice because this pushes me to do the work. I highly recommend Will as your instructor.

Dan is a top grade professional in every way. There are few people that are more passionate and committed to their purpose in Life. Dan goes above and beyond for people to ensure their success in life. He is incredibly gifted, patient and successful in teaching and training and encouraging people in their talents and their gifting. 
I can’t recommend anyone more than Dan. Dan was patient, thorough, and kept his people informed and positive through the ups and downs of the entire process. He was well liked by everyone. He is both a leader and a supportive team member. In addition, Dan is a delightful person who makes everyone’s life better by his presence. Again I give him a strong recommendation. I cannot say enough great things about Dan. He is extremely polished and professional. He has a can-do attitude, and is always going the extra mile.

Insightful, challenging, and enjoyable lessons!

Starting voice lessons was new territory for me; though I had been in choir, I hadn't had lessons that pushed me individually before. I was looking for detailed, content-rich instruction that challenged me, which I found in Dan's lessons!

Each lesson, though only a half-hour long in my case, includes new concepts that can be immediately applied for better singing! His approach is multidimensional, addressing pitch, tone, quality, and breathing at an intensity that varies according to skill level. Dan has experience in numerous styles and is able to offer apt tutoring to all of them. He has a unique ability to break down and explain concepts in singing so that they are tangible and attainable.

We have worked on pop, jazz, and folk so far, and in each area, I learned a bajillion new things! Dan's enthusiasm and knowledge combined with his engaging teaching style will benefit anyone who wants to improve their voice. I absolutely recommend Dan as a voice teacher!
