Melissa M. Everett, WA

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

Hello and welcome to your studio!

About your lessons:

My teaching style is developed specifically for each student, to give them the most out of their lesson without overwhelming them.

I will help you learn to play the songs you love!

I host two recitals per year: a Christmas recital in December and a Spring (with awards) recital in June.

I look forward to serving you as your music instructor!

My Teaching Philosophy for Piano

For the very young beginner (4-8), we will refer to Dogs and Birds, which is a wonderful book series developed in the United Kingdom with colorful illustrations making learning music more enjoyable for the young musician. We will also refer to Faber books and loose music material for their music studies. You will learn all major and minor scales in your studies along with ear training benefits. We will also utilize Faber, Bastien and Afred. These same studies apply to ages 9 and up without Dogs and Birds.

My Teaching Philosophy for Guitar

You will learn how to read and play guitar music with William Leavitt's Guitar Method books. This is great for young adults to adult learners. With the studies I incorporate into your practices, you will be reading music, playing duets, understand rhythm time signatures and develop an ear for cadences.

For younger guitarists we will begin with Alfred's Kids Guitar Course.

I include a variety of sheet music and lesson studies throughout your lessons along with your book work.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Kawai Studio Piano, Selmer Clarinet, and Ovation Guitar with amplification (if needed) at my in home studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to have book materials, a smile and instrument with him/her for each lesson. I also recommend they pick up a three ring binder for keeping track of their progress and weekly assignments.

There are two recitals hosted for the students per year. The next one is on June 7.

About your instructor:

Melissa attended Cornish College of the Arts from 2005-2007 to earn her music composition degree. She later transferred to Trinity Lutheran College earning her Bachelor of Music degree in Music and Worship. She has been playing music since she was five years old. Melissa has been in touring bands in California, choir throughout college, musical theatre and theatre since 2005. I recently performed guitar, along with one of my students, in Cotton Patch Gospel. You will also see me in this years It's A Wonderful Life, live radio play, at Warm Beach Camp's dinner theater, 2014. I've improvised in jazz groups, open mic and solo gig(s), music composition groups at Cornish, songwriting and recording. She also plays music for residents at a retirement home and getting ready to record her first full album. She is also teaching music to children in Montessori schools.

I look forward to serving you as your music instructor!

Thomas K. Seattle, WA

Subjects Taught

Arrangement and Composition, Audition Prep, Clarinet, Classical Piano, Composition, Conducting, Ear Training, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone, Trumpet

About Me

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 games, Thomas hopes to explore more disciplines and styles in future concerts, searching for new ways to engage audiences.

Thomas was commissioned to orchestrate music for the Twin Falls, Idaho Temple Celebration in 2008, and later commissioned to orchestrate for the Brigham Young University—Idaho concert band. As an undergraduate, he provided music for a recruitment video by the Manassas, Virginia Police Department and has been commissioned by the American Festival Pops Orchestra in Fairfax, Virginia. His jazz composition Bump was selected to be recorded by the George Mason University Jazz Ensemble for their "Jazz 4 Justice" album, and he also provided music for a handful of George Mason University films and video games.

An active educator, Thomas instructs students in piano, saxophone, music theory, and composition. He led multiple after-school classes for piano, as well as a glee club for elementary school students as an official teacher for both Piano Keys 4 Kids and MusIQ Club, the latter a computer-based learning approach. He also maintained a diverse private studio that included both children and adults.

Thomas received his Bachelor of Music in Composition from George Mason University, where he was the recipient of a number of scholarships, including the "Provost Achievement Award" and the "Adopt a Young Artist"scholarship. He studied composition under band composer Mark Camphouse and electronic composer Jesse Guessford, and conducting under Anthony Maiello. In the area of performance, he has studied saxophone under Rick Parrell (U.S. Army Band), Tyler Kuebler (USAF Airmen of Note), and Sandon Mayhew; and piano with John Healey and Danny Beal. Thomas is also the recipient of the Louis Armstrong National Jazz Award.

Originally from Boise, Idaho, Thomas currently resides in Seattle, Washington where he is pursuing a Masters of Music in Film Scoring from Seattle Film Institute where he will be studying under film and television composer Hummie Mann. A melodious and colorful composer, he hopes this new pursuit will help further his goal of bringing evocative, contemporary music to audiences everywhere.
