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.
Growing up in the northwest with its vibrant music scene allowed Kareem the opportunity to study with, listen to and perform with world class jazz artists residing in the area. Artists such as Tracy Knoop, Jay Thomas, Don Lanphere, Bill Ramsay, Hadley Caliman, Julian Priester and many others had a large impact on Kareem early in his musical education. This direction and guidance continues to inspire and lead Kareem as he continues his lifelong passion undertaking a career as a professional musician.
Today, as a performing artist he spends most of his time leading his group for which he composes and arranges most of the music. The band is constantly on the move as a sought after performing group and spends most of its time performing in and around the Pacific Northwest. When not leading his own group Kareem can be seen and heard performing as a sideman with many other top notch musical acts and projects, most notably The Paperboys from Vancouver BC.
As an educator Kareem divides his time teaching jazz improvisation as an artist in residence at The Tacoma School of the Arts, directing the award winning student jazz ensemble at Pierce College, conducting masterclasses and workshops at schools around the Puget Sound area, and maintaining a full load of private students.
Kareem holds a Bachelors Degree of Music from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle Washington which he attended after receiving a full scholarship.
Throughout his years of teaching Kareem has worked with students of all ages and abilties, from beginners just getting started, to advanced players who simply want new ideas and direction.

Guitar, Bass, Mandolin, Banjo, Music Theory, Composition, Instruction. Ari graduated in 2001 with a degree in Jazz and Contemporary music from The New School In New York City. He also attended Rutgers University in New Jersey. Ari began private music lessons around the age of 14 and never turned back. Since graduating from college Ari has taught literally 1,000′s of music lessons to people of all ages, styles, and skill levels.
A uniquely diverse palette, the ability to transcend musical languages, masterful technique and a refreshing sense of artistic urgency make Ari a compelling young musician to watch. Currently residing in the Northwest, Ari performs regularly and can be seen and heard on guitar with his new underground rock band Big High, AriSawkaDoria – an Experimental Trio, and dozens of other unique projects that span genre and style.
Ari was born in Cape Town, South Africa but his early days as an artist were spent in Seattle, WA., where he grew up and first discovered his musical calling. His hard work and raw talent were quickly recognized, and Ari was awarded a scholarship to study music on the east coast after high school. “Moving to New York and studying music for 5 years was one of the richest experiences of my life,” says Ari. “It was from my fellow students and mentors at the New School and Mason Gross School of the Arts that I began to appreciate the true power of musical expression.”
Despite being relatively under the radar, Ari has recorded and performed and rubbed shoulders with a list that reads like a highly diverse Who’s Who of the music scene today: Robert Glasper, Stone Gossard, Peter Buck, Joe Doria, Michael Kang, Kevin Sawka, Michael Shrieve, The Benevento Russo Duo, Barrett Martin, EJ and Marcus Strickland, Reggie Watts, DJ Swamp, Blake Lewis, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Tom Morello, Mike McCready, Skerik, Matt Butler’s Everyone Orchestra, David Tiller, Matt Sircely, New Monsoon, David Brogen (ALO), Shawn Smith (Brad, Satchel), Handful of Lovin, Richie Beirach, Kenny Barron, Reggie Workman, Ted Dunbar, Jack Wilkins, Vic Juris, Hal Galper, Jimmy Owens, Milo Petersen, George Garzone, Armen Donelian, Richard Boukas, Bobby Sanabria, Bill Kirshner, Jimmy Cobb, Gary Dial, Classical Guitarist Virginia Luque, Ralph Peterson, Noah Baerman, Larry Ridly, Mike Richmond, Ralph Bowen, Bill Fielder, Badal Roy, Robert Bedford and many, many more.
Experience, humility, patience, and passion for the arts make Ari a wonderful teacher for people of all skill levels, styles, ages and walks of life.
Bass Clarinet, Clarinet, Music Performance, Music Theory, Saxophone
Jazz and blues have been an integral part of my life since I was a child. I began playing music when I was five years old, starting with the violin. I have played many instruments, but the saxophone has become my passion. I have been playing saxophone for 18 years, performing professionally both in the Atlanta and Seattle areas.
One of the greatest joys in my musical journey has been to share my musical insights with students. I strive to find each students' creativity and help them cultivate that. I believe that every student has the ability to create beautiful music regardless of experience. I tailor my lessons to each individual student to assist them in reaching their goals- whether that is to perform classical, jazz, blues, Brazilian, etc., to become first chair, to prepare for college and scholarship auditions, or simply to play just for fun.
I studied jazz performance at Agnes Scott College where I received a music scholarship. I also hold a BA in psychology from the University of Washington.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
