Zarni d. Seattle, WA

I have the same motto with both Piano and Vocal Instruction- the key is to find the music you really love. We will learn techniques but you will be practicing those techniques right away with the music you like to sing. Struggle with vibrato, breathing, pitch or range? There are usually one or two systematic errors that cause an array of problems- we will get to the bottom of it and slowly work our way to healthy singing habits

About Zarni

Hello!
My name is Zarni and I am a recent graduate from the Berklee College of Music with a Bachelors in Music Education and Songwriting. During my time at Berklee I received two scholarships, The Korg Endowed for Early Childhood Education and the Scott Benson Scholarship, the highest award given for Songwriting. Most recently I won Most Promising Music Educator Award in the Choral department, an award given by the Dean of the Berklee College of Music.
I am just as passionate about writing, listening to, learning and analyzing the popular music that you listen to!

Evan G. Seattle, WA

Beginners-
It's time to find and strengthen the essential source of a strong voice, the diaphragm. We will accomplish this with a series of breathing exercises, stretches and stances that will contact the proper muscles and regions of the body required to produce a strong, controlled and healthy singing voice.
Then we will find your range; the span of notes in which you are most comfortable singing. Once established, we will strengthen and expand your range.

Intermediate-
If this is your category, you've sang in bands, choirs, open mics, you probably play an instrument(s) and you've maybe already taken a lesson or two.
First, we'll take a look at your strengths and weaknesses to weed out any bad habits. Then we'll talk about the style(s) you wish to sing; songs, artists, your own personal twist and build up from there.

Advanced-
You've taken lessons, you perform live, you've been singing for a long time and you need professional assistance to achieve your next goal as a ...

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.

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!
Fukuda M. Seattle, WA

For age 8-100.
Student will learn proper breathing technique, rhythm, body coordination, stage presence etc. I use different approach depending on each students' need, personality, and goal.
Half or more time will be focusing on vocal exercise to strengthen their vocal ability, then we will work on the student's favorite song.
I also cover how to work with other musicians and music theory for singers to those who wish to play with others or want to be a professional singer.

Seattle Vocalists Sing More than Songs

By David M. - Seattle Singing Teacher

The term “song,” according to the Encarta World English Dictionary is “a usually relatively short musical composition consisting of words set to music and the music itself.” Words are the common thread in songs, which differentiates them from “pieces” or “tunes” in music terminology. But what happens when words go out the window?

Seattle has vocalists that explore that realm, and welcome you to come along on the journey. On the first and third Sunday of each month, Studio VOX! presents “Sundays at LUCID,” a vocal improvisation group. This gathering is open to vocalists of all levels of experience who wish to explore group improvisations, and is led by the wonderfully knowledgeable and lighthearted Debby Watt. Singers are ...
