Kareem K. Tacoma, WA

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone, Songwriting

About Me

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 abilities, from beginners just getting started, to advanced players who simply want new ideas and direction.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are relaxed and are focused on what you would like to learn.

I usually begin with assessing where students are in their abilities and then come up with a lesson plan based on what they already know and what they would like to accomplish.
They can be geared towards a 5 year old with no musical training whatsoever, or to an advanced musician who wants to further develop their skills.

Topics that I cover in lessons throughout a typical day of teaching include: Instrument technique, sight reading skills ( note and rhythm recognition ), memorization skills, music theory, ear training, improvising, and composing.

After 3 to 6 months of lessons and regular practice a beginning student should have a good command of their instrument and a strong foundation of sight reading. At this point we normally will also have started some music theory as well. For students wanting to focus on jazz we will have already begun improvising as well.

*** Studio Equipment ***
5x10 room w/ piano and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I focus on the basics of learning to read music and basic technique on the instruments that I teach. From there I proceed with theory, ear training, improvising, composition etc. It all depends on what the students want to learn. I am comfortable teaching classical music as well as jazz, rock, composition, and improvisation.

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 (recently was seen in Grace on Deck with the Baylight Dinner Theatre Group at Warm Beach, 2013), improvisation 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 Musikgarten for families with babies to age 9 in her home studio and at a dance studio.
I look forward to serving you as your music instructor!
