Rulon B. Issaquah, WA

With a Bachelor of Music from Cornish College of the Arts, I'm a working pro with years of experience teaching and performing across North & Central America.

About Rulon

Music is a joyful act of sharing, so I try to teach and perform with this philosophy in mind.

I have 18 years teaching experience and have toured the U.S. extensively as a performer, composer and teacher (working with people of all ages and skill). Recently, the U.S. State Department contracted me to represent the U.S. in a tour of Nicaragua teaching and playing for the International Jazz Festival with my band.

My musical passions include Latin music, gospel, and modern Music. I toured for three years with a Celtic trio, have played lead alto/tenor books in numerous show and big bands, and have rocked it with Soul, Ska, Punk, Funk, and Latin Bands of every shape.

In addition to my own music, I composer, perform, and record music for film, TV, video games and other creative ...

I am an adult who has little music background. Before signing up the lessons, I was hesitated whether a teacher would be impatient to teach someone like me. A friend who plays in orchestra encouraged me and went through several sax teachers' profiles and picked Rulon for me.

And it turns out that Rulon is really great. Without doubt on his professional knowledge, but also that he is a very encouraging. He has more faith in me than I have in myself. He explores my strength and uncovers it; he also finds my problem and tailored a procedure for me to improve.

I would highly recommend him as a teacher. But wait, please don't compete with my schedule. :-)

Great teacher who allows his students to express their creativity.

This summer I started getting into digital music composing and began writing my own songs. Rulon has been very helpful in focusing my ideas and teaching me how to be a better composer. He has helped me develop my song ideas and taught me to focus on the melody and song structure rather than on effects and instruments. I really enjoy my lessons and like that Rulon provides critical feedback of my work but allows me to develop my own ideas. I have learned a lot from my lessons and feel that my songwriting skills have improved substantially.

Great teacher, great communicator, professional all the way

When choosing a teacher, it's very important to have someone who can teach at multiple levels of experience, Rulon does this as well as helping to establish goals and assuring you meet those goals.

David is an outstanding instructor! My son is 5 years old and loves him. My son is occasionally a difficult child with his own special quirks, but David is so patient and observant and tailors the lessons as we go along week to week to keep my son engaged, encouraged and learning. I also have two younger children who must tag along to the lesson and even they are excited during the lessons and are already asking when they start their lessons! We will be starting at least one more child's lessons with him during this coming school year! He is great!

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!

I have a full, working studio in my apartment. Let's record some songs!

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 ...

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!
Kennedy G. Kirkland, WA

I've been producing music for most of my life, but professionally engineering audio since 2010, tutoring those who were willing to learn along the way! I believe that everyone who has an interest in music should know their way around a Digital Audio Workstation and how to record and produce their own works! I'll teach you how to record your instrument, how to use basic recording equipment and a knowing your way around a DAW to the deeper and more advanced ends of production, mixing, mastering!

About Kennedy

Hello! My name is Kennedy Icarus Gray and my passion has always been Musical Composition. From Theory to Production, every step along the way I have you covered! Having my Bachelors in Digital Media Composition, working Radio in Arizona in 2011-2012, and have built my audio engineering rig from the ground up, and I've been producing, engineering, and publishing works for over four years now!

Any questions about Audio Engineering, from those with an instrument and the desire to play with no prior knowledge to those who know their way around a Digital Audio Workstation and every step of the way, I'm more than glad to lend my ear!

Thank you for your time and good luck!
