About Evan

Hello Students! My name is Evan G and I've been teaching for nearly 15 years. I was raised by music educators and began playing guitar at age six. I do it all; performing, writing, recording, building and teaching (guitar, voice, ukulele, music theory, live performance, etc). I have a Bachelors in Music from Cornish College of the Arts (2003-2007) and I've studied and performed with many great musicians from all over the world. My teaching methods begin with your goals and your needs as a musician. I will get you there. Sincerely, Evan G. My main areas of expertise are Jazz, Latin, Blues, Funk and Rock. Guitar and bass students will begin with a fundamental foundation of scales, chords, rhythms and theory that will fully prepare them for whichever direction they choose to go. ...

I'm brand new to guitar, and Evan was recommended by a friend. He came out to my house and gave me my very first lessons and they were great! I'm a slow learner, and he has been super supportive! I think I'm getting the hang of this...thanks Evan!!!

I'm an intermediate guitar player looking to move forward, and with Evan, even after just a handful of lessons, I made serious strides with my playing. A very talented guitar player, an acute listener, and a very patient teacher. I highly recommend him.

I have found /Evan to be very easy to relate to. He listens to what you have to say, and tailors his instruction to your level and your goals. He very obviously knows what he is doing and is able to relate that to his instruction.

Jae-In is one of the most competent violinists in the Seattle area. As a teacher she is very analytical and puts a lot of thought and effort into her students's progress. I am a former semi-professional player who stopped playing the violin for 20 years. I recently started practicing again, but felt that I needed more direction and guidance. I have progressed more in the last two months working with Jae-In than I have in the previous 1 1/2 years since I picked up the instrument.

I was lucky to study with her cuz she is a professional, personable, and motivating teacher.
I leaned not just how to play violin, but how to practice on my own and listen to myself. So I notice that I'm improving my playing each time I practice.

Jane's very devoted and responsible to her students and she knows how to keep them inspired and loving playing violin.
My son couldn't get into the college receiving full scholarship without her.

About Abby

My name is Abby, and I've been playing guitar for about 13 years now. I graduated from Musician's Institute in 2007, and since then, I have had a great deal of experience teaching guitar to kids and adults, both individually and in groups. I've spent the last three summers teaching at Camp Jam and Day Jams, and I had the pleasure of being the Camp Jam kids director of the Orange County location in 2008. They were both great experiences yet again. I love helping students find their passion for music and the creative process. I have been teaching at my current music school for about two years, and privately for about 5 years. I have studied and taught many different styles of guitar, as well as note reading and theory. You could say I'm a rock player at heart, but I love all ...

What a terrible experience. I signed up for lessons for my wife from Brett as a gift because he listed times that would work for my wife given that we have a young daughter, and have a hard time making time for lessons. Brett told us 3 days before the lesson that the time wouldn't work, then simply never showed for the rescheduled first lesson. Worse, he simply refused to do scheduling via email (he would leave voicemails and failed to return my wife's call when she called back as they were playing phone tag), and then told us he had another commitment during the slot we had supposedly reserved for him. Worse, he failed to update the site as he continually cancelled lessons and never showed up for scheduled times. I now have a huge hassle of getting a refund on the money I paid for lessons as opposed to a lovely gift for my wife. Life's too short and we're too busy for such an awful experience.

Great teacher for my young daughter

Brett has been a great teacher for my 5 year old daughter. She is just learning the basics of piano and Brett has been great at expanding her skill sets. She really enjoys practicing with him and actually looks forward to when he comes over every week!

Fantastic for our 10-year old son...

Brett is fantastic with our 10-year old son who just enjoys playing piano and isn't looking to become a concert pianist someday. So many kids are miserable playing the same boring things over and over and Brett really listened to our needs and just nurtures our son's interest in music. Bravo!
John Paul S. Seattle, WA

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.
