About Kelly

After years of teaching all levels, and many different styles of voice and piano lessons, I can tell you this-- I LOVE teaching! My students have ranged from 5 to 65, from classical piano, or jazz/ pop piano to pop/ rock/ jazz singing, and no matter what we always have a great time. I guarantee that in our lessons, you will see progress almost immediately... but above all, learning music is FUN!

Kelly is a wonderful teacher! She is extremely knowledgeable about music. She helped me raise my grades in my music theory classes. I learned so much about building my repertoire and using different techniques in order to sing songs in a unique way. I would absolutely recommend taking any kind of music lessons from Kelly because of her knowledge and her ability to communicate the concept. Anyone will become a better musician when learning from Kelly.

We've only had 2 lessons so far, but I can say Kelly is a fantastic teacher. I've learned and grown as a singer already.

Simply awesome

Kelly has a talent for teaching and playing music. She is able to convey complex musical ideas through the use of analogies. Kelly regularly emphases important aspects of singing. Her passion for music is clear, look no further for a great teacher.

About Mike

I have been playing / studying the drum set for over 25 years. I have taken lessons from some of the best teachers on the West Coast and brought the best of their knowledge into my lessons. I have been teaching kids at the Rock School in Seattle for the last 10 years as well as teaching privately for ages 10 and up. Some of the groups I've played / recorded with are: Atma, Kiss Her For The Kid, Leanne Wilkins, Carrie Akre, Stereo Sons, Charles St Messengers. *** Lesson Details *** I work to develop a vocabulary on the drum set that translates through all styles of music. My lessons employ a routine that works well for beginners as well as more advanced players by the option to add difficulty incrementally. This routine gives consistency to the lessons and makes it easy to gauge ...

About John Paul

I have been teaching voice and music lessons for several years now to a wide range and variety of students. I have successfully helped individuals learn how to sing, speak, act, write songs, and play the piano. Some students come to me to build their confidence or skills. Other students come to me just to have a really great time. All my students grow from their experiences learning music with me. I use a variety of methods and it all depends on what you, as a student, are needing from your lessons. My background is diverse. I have written and recorded dozens of musical albums over the last decade. I often perform for music and theater events in Seattle and Washington. I have a bachelor of science in contemporary vocal performance and a master of arts in information and learning ...

John Paul is an amazingly talented artist (performer, writer, teacher, singer, producer, composer, director...the list is seriously too long). We have worked together as professional singers, and I have collaborated with him on an album that he wrote/produced/recorded/edited himself. He is a kind and inspiring person who LOVES music more than anything in the world. I wholeheartedly recommend him to students of all ages who want to find and express their creative voice in the world.

Best teacher ever

JP has been teaching Mya for almost 2 years (since she was 6 years old) and Mya has been loving each lesson, can't wait for the next one, and has grown in many ways, that have exceeded our expectations.
JP is extremely patient, always positive, and knows how to reinforce the confidence whenever needed, provide clues for improvement that are very useful and positive. JP is an outstanding teacher.
The lessons are always a good mix of warming up, theory, singing, expressing emotions, new creations and also recording.
JP brings the best out of Mya, and makes her feel that he is also enjoying it.

Great Teacher!

Katie Ilen is an amazing singer with a knack for teaching. She is patient, kind, informative and highly skilled. My daughter loves her and talks about her all the time. After taking lessons with Katie my daughter has gotten so much better it is surprising. Katie also incorporates recording into her lessons and now we have 2 adorable recordings of my daughter singing. Priceless! Highly recommended!

Chris did a good job of meeting me halfway, encouraging me to apply to the colleges I was already interested in, and telling me about a few more I’d never heard of. I’m now going to one of the latter and am so glad I booked a few hours with Chris!

We needed a last-minute replacement when our keyboardist bowed out of our wedding. We called Chris. He was professional and courteous, and his playing is one of many happy memories from that evening. He should be far from your last option!

I knew I couldn't study for the test by myself as soon as I saw the first page of math questions. Chris makes dusting off a decade of math a matter of a little study; one of my classmates even helped me out, too, and I’m now a grad student in the field of my choice.

About Kay

Indeed as a kid, I was simply blown away as to how music showcases almost endless stimulating possibilities. This in terms of structure, different genres, discordance, harmony, tamber, melody and rhythm. For it would be these very profound attributes noticed back then that sustain me today. As a young aspiring musician, "universal" would be last words out of an poor observers mouth. This especially when describing my several attempts in playing speed metal on my sisters viola. It would be these sort of behaviors that summoned my father to buy his resourceful son a electric guitar and amp. The rest was history. A history plagued with disturbing reverberations along my parents bedroom walls and garage doors. This while placing a heavy burden on their pocket books in begging for ...
