Greetings! My name is Roland and I am a piano and voice teacher teaching from my studio in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Seattle. I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Music from Western Washington University in Bellingham with an emphasis in voice. As a freelance vocalist, I perform many different styles from opera, musical theater/Broadway, sacred songs and hymns, as well as old-school ballads. I have sung all over the Pacific Northwest (WA, ID, OR) with many different groups and organizations, including the Bellevue Opera, Puget Sound Opera, Fat Chance! Opera Company, Seattle Glee Clubs, in numerous community events, fundraisers, and churches. I was also a first-place winner in the Performing Arts Festival Eastside in the vocal/opera division. As a pianist, I am currently serving as the pianist/keyboard player for the Worship Team at a church in South Seattle.
I have a passion for sharing and teaching music to others and helping people discover their own musical potential. My goal is to help students to learn how to use their respective instruments, helping to develop an appreciation and enjoyment for music so that in the future, they can pass down their love of singing/playing to others, so that they too can enjoy it as well. I'm looking forward to guiding you throughout the learning process and making sure it's fun and memorable!

I have loved music as long as I can remember. I know its cliché to say so, but it's true! :)
For me, having parents of different ethnicities and siblings that were much older than me, I was heavily impacted by the wide variety of music to which my family members listened. The force of this crayon box of rhythms and sounds captivated and affected me so much that it is the key experience that I draw from in making my own music today.
I grew up in Fairbanks, Alaska (a small town in the center of the state) so my only option for entertainment and fun was getting involved in the arts! I started performing at a very young age as both a dancer and a musician. I studied classical ballet, modern dance, hip hop and street dance, and world dance traditions throughout my formative years, which helped me to gain rhythmical fluency. I started my formal music training when I began to play the cello. From then on, I was hooked on the sound and I immersed myself in music as much as I could; performing, competing, working in as many musical groups and productions as possible (as both a vocalist and cellist), and even teaching.
I moved to Seattle in 2003 to study opera at Cornish College of the arts, only to later change my major to Jazz, and then again to Latin music studies. Since graduating from Cornish in 2007, with my Bachelor of Music degree, I have been actively and diligently working in the local music scene; performing and recording with artists and groups of many different styles. Everything from various Latin genres, to Rock, to R&B/Soul, to Hip Hop, and Jazz. Through my music, I aim to reach out to people of all cultures. I also aim to teach my own students with the hope that they too can discover the same continuous love of music that I have grown to feel (and still am growing to feel) over the years. :)

I am a music teacher because of my deep desire to help others discover the joy, enlightenment, and fulfillment which I, myself, have found woven into all aspects of life through the incomparable power of music. I believe that singing is an especially incredible medium of musical expression, which allows a person to convey feelings in the most personal and inimitable manner. I am dedicated to using healthy and creative methods to help each student discover their unique and best voice!
When I'm not singing (or even sometimes when I am!) I am usually in the kitchen whipping up some delicious and nutritious creation, researching holistic healing modalities (I will soon be certified as a personal health coach!), walking on the beach or some other verdant location in the gorgeous Pacific NW, reading a good book, enjoying stimulating conversation with inspiring people, or composing more music and lyrics. :)
