About Kareem

A native of the Pacific Northwest, saxophonist Kareem K is a performer, composer, and educator, who is in high demand for his talents both on and off the stage.

Kareem is a dedicated and diligent musician and teacher. He is able to share his love of music with students of all ages. Not only is he extremely capable of teaching students the technical aspects of music, but his lessons incorporate a wider perspective as well, such as, listening to different genres of music and asking his students to discuss what they hear. He is always positive and encourages students to do their best. He has style and class and it is a privilege that two of my children can study under his tutelage.

Kareem is the man. I first met him while playing in the Pierce College Big Band--which he directs and is a perennial first place at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. I studied with him for 6 months formally but over the past 2 years through his weekly jam session and mutual gigs he's become a tremendous influence in my life. Whether your a beginner on your axe or an aspiring jazz student of any level he is the instructor for you.
As an improvisor his main influences are Sonny Stitt, Dexter Gordon, and Joshua Redman. For any jazz musician on any instrument he is a master instructor of bebop. His overall playing versatility is solid but his forte is bebop. He is simply a beast of bebop and can aptly guide you along the path of musical enlightenment. Also, like most great jazz musicians his piano chops are excellent.

Kareem is a powerful instructor who brings total clarity to playing sax, from the mouthpiece to the fingering to the study of musical theory and scales to the integrity and definition of jazz itself. I studied with him for just a few months and learned more about music theory and different approaches to the tenor sax than I could have imagined possible. I had played years before and he not only got me back into it but put me way ahead of where I had ever been before. He is my tenor guru.
Thomas K. Seattle, WA

A woodwind player since age 10, Thomas has experience as a performer and teacher. His previous education has included methodology classes on teaching specific instruments, and he is available to teach beginning clarinet lessons.

About Thomas

Passionate about composition, conducting, and education, Thomas hopes to bridge the gap between ensembles and the audience by creating and presenting music that is fun, approachable, and sophisticated, all while crossing between genres and artistic disciplines. His concerts include Emerge & Ascend, a benefit concert featuring a 70-piece orchestra that raised $1,500 for the Ronald McDonald House while presenting new music. His Junior Composition Recital sought to showcase an eclectic array of styles and ensembles, from a plainchant-inspired brass quintet to a funk big band chart. His Senior Composition Recital used a 45-piece orchestra, drawing inspiration from Dr. Seuss stories for one piece and featuring a tap dancer on another. Fueled by his love of music, film, art, and video ...

Thomas has requested that I write a letter of recommendation on his behalf.
Thomas worked as an instructor for Piano Keys 4 Kids from September 2013 to June 2014. As the owner of Piano Keys 4 Kids, I assigned Thomas with duties as an instructor in an after school enrichment program in several public elementary schools. Specifically, Thomas taught children in grades K-3 the basic fundamentals of the piano using a curriculum developed by Piano Keys 4 Kids. His group class time was approximately 1 hour in length. Based on his college class schedule he accepted as many school assignments as possible.
Over the time that I have known Thomas he has consistently performed his duties with competence. Thomas was not only reliable in attending every class he was assigned, but very prompt in delivering an update on the progress of his classes.
With the depth of Thomas' musical skills, he can be an outstanding piano teacher in both the private and group setting.
While Thomas leaving our company to attend graduate school is a loss to us, I have every confidence that Thomas will thrive in graduate studies as well as in his music instructor endeavors. Thomas is an intelligent and committed individual.
