Kelly is a wonderful teacher! She is extremely knowledgeable about music. She helped me raise my grades in my music theory classes. I learned so much about building my repertoire and using different techniques in order to sing songs in a unique way. I would absolutely recommend taking any kind of music lessons from Kelly because of her knowledge and her ability to communicate the concept. Anyone will become a better musician when learning from Kelly.

Kelly has a talent for teaching and playing music. She is able to convey complex musical ideas through the use of analogies. Kelly regularly emphases important aspects of singing. Her passion for music is clear, look no further for a great teacher.

My son has been taking lessons from Matt for almost 2 years and we could not be happier with his progress. Matt provides the personal attention that each of his students needs for growth in guitar skills and also music theory. I also appreciate his flexibility and willingness to accommodate our hectic schedule.

I have been a student for Mathew for past few months and I enjoy his classes. In his classes, I've been learning songs, guitar techniques, music theory, and even a little about the music business from his experiences. He has a great in-home studio which is perfect for guitar lessons and I've have learned a lot from him and I look forward to his classes each week. In my opinion, he is the the best type of person to learn from because of his dedication and his ability to teach anybody at any level.

My daughter has been taking lessons from Matthew for a few months now. She really enjoys his teaching style....she learns about valuable skills and theory and also has fun at every lesson. Matthew is very encouraging about her progress and keeps her motivated to practice to sharpen her skills. He's also very flexible with scheduling which is great for us because of school, commuting etc. Matthew is very friendly and knowledgeable and is an excellent teacher.

I teach songwriting up to the advanced level, and composition up to the professional level.

About Ben

I have been teaching French Horn, piano and composition privately for about†seven years, mainly in Snohomish and King counties. I have also coached horn players in local school bands during this time, as well as helping students with learning disabilities. There are many difficulties that students encounter when studying music, and I want to help you turn weaknesses into strengths, and help you find out where your greatest strengths (and interests) lie in music. I'll work with you to help you understand your own musical desires and goals, so that you can get the most out of your lessons. I am committed to understanding each of my students, and to sharing my love of music with each one of them. I teach French Horn, piano, music theory and composition as well as songwriting. ...

I was apprehensive to the type of instructor I would hire. As we got over the first two sessions and able to get more acquainted, I like that Ben paid attention to the type of music I wanted to learn and tailored his lesson based on my skills level.

This Music Man is great!

Having taken piano lessons for over 40 years on and off, Ben is a refreshing change. He makes me laugh and learn in new ways and has rejuvinated my love of playing music. (Even though I had to bring out the dusty Hanon book!)

Tre's mom; REALTOR/Broker

Ben is teaching Tre wonderfully. He is really getting to know Tre and adjust the lessons accordingly. Tre likes his lessons and seems engaged in the songs, material (theory, practice book and flash cards) and process. It helps that Ben is patient, seems to be a good listener and gives helpful praise when Tre gets a concept or improves in his technique. Keep doing what your doing Ben. We care that it is all a positive experience for everyone : )Dayna
Vanessa P. Lynnwood, WA

Everyone's a Poet/Singer/Songwriter at heart! We all have songs and melodies and poetic fancies that have been sleeping inside of us (sometimes for years), and we long to bring them out, but somehow lack the tools, and, most importantly, the encouragement to share our creative treasure trove with others, and, even for our own self satisfaction. As an awarding and published poet, (see Amazon.com for my "Kaleidoscope: Life's Meaningful Reflections" series of books and audio books) I'll help you begin to express your thoughts, emotions, and stories in your own songs, and in your own unique style that will bring your message to the world! No time like the present to start!

About Vanessa

Become the masterful Singer that you really ARE! Learn to bring out the natural beauty and power of your Voice, and to match your own unique personality and vocal qualities to complementing repertoire in order to show your voice and talents in their best light. We'll develop the repertoire that fits YOU. You'll learn how the Voice works and where it really comes from, and probably be amazed at the almost immediate widening of your vocal range.

Trained by one of the Metropolitan Opera‚¬Ä¬ôs most beloved Voice Coaches, Vanessa brings to the world of music a wonderfully varied Performing and Teaching career ranging from Opera to Broadway. She holds a BA degree in Music Performance from the School of Fine and Applied Arts of Boston University, and is an award winning ...

Larry B. Woodinville, WA

I have been a songwriter for 40 years, writing in a number of styles for television (NBC) and Showtime. I've also had a children's musical that is being done by theatres around the country.

About Larry

I've been a professional singer and teacher for over 40 years with a B.M.E. degree in music education and a M.A. in Vocal Performance. A long-standing member of the Nat. Assn of Teachers of Singing. I work with a variety of styles from classical to pop, country, jazz, and Broadway. My students are currently performing in some major theatres and with top name musicians. I honestly believe "anyone can learn to sing" and take students from "pitch-challenged" to pros who want to tweak their voice. I have demo videos to show how my lessons work.

Larry's dedication to his students is unbeatable. He is determined to find the best way to teach each student, and changes his tactics for each individual singer to make sure they are getting the most out of their lesson and having fun while improving quickly. I work in the musical theatre industry and have filmed audition videos with Larry, done audition prep, and worked general singing technique and have found him to be loyal, encouraging, and extremely talented. He believes in his students and the results show!

Larry is a great teacher. His professionalism, enthusiasm and experience speak volumes. He is very approachable and easy to work with. My technique has improved enormously since I started taking lessons with him because I find it easy to understand concepts when he explains them. In addition, Larry teaches in a fully equipped studio, so you can record your work and really hear how you're doing. I cannot say enough to recommend him!

I have been with Larry since 2000 when I first started doing musical theater. From the start I was amazed by Larry's beautiful voice and vocal knowledge. Larry is very talented in keeping students engaged and best of all his teaching style is molded around the students needs. Since starting with Larry I have delved into so many different styles including Broadway, classical, blues, rock, music performance, songwriting, and even audition prep. Over the past fourteen years Larry hasn't just become my vocal teacher, he has become a lifelong friend, and I look forward to every lesson I have with him.
