One unique thing about me is that I've have experience in MANY different musical situations ranging from performance and education to arranging, band leading, touring, recording, and writing. I began as a punk rocker as so many people my age did. Learning the songs of the bands I listened to. As I got older and more proficient at my instrument, I began playing for the high school jazz bands and choirs in the area I grew up, beautiful Bremerton WA. When I was 16 I began my formal training at Olympic College where I played bass in several of the school ensembles as well as studied Theory, ear training, and history courses. At 18 I graduated with an AAS degree, took a year off to tour with a vocal jazz group called Jazz line, then applied to Cornish College of the Arts the following year. At Cornish I was exposed to many different world music styles and cultures as well as many different local Seattle musicians. From the time I got to Cornish in 2004 until now, I have been performing in Seattle at least once a week with different groups and usually 3-6 nights a week. Since graduating from Cornish in 2006, I have toured the US,Canada, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas. I am an adjunct Jazz theory instructor at Cornish College of the Arts, Jazz director at Holy Names Academy, Have given workshops and clinics at CAL ARTS, University of Alaska, University of Nevada, CWU, and many high schools and middle schools all over the country, taught on average 30-50 students per week in and around the Seattle area. In a nutshell..... music is my life, I love it, and I love sharing it's beauty with others.

My name is Dustin B.
I've been playing and teaching music for the majority of my life, and I love it :) In fact, I cannot imagine what life would be like without music.
I received my first instrument (a guitar) as a Christmas present when I was only nine years old. My life was forever changed that day, and I can still remember the first couple of guitar lessons that my dad gave me over the weeks that followed.
After thousands of hours of playing instruments, years of private lessons, and a professional music education from Pacific Lutheran University, I found that sharing the gift of music with others was my greatest talent.
I spend most of my days composing, recording, producing and teaching music (in the greater Seattle area), with much of the work performed in my Tacoma-area studio.
In 2011, my band (The BGP) had some global exposure from our appearance on NBC's America's Got Talent. This has led to some really neat opportunities for publishing our music and networking on a national level. The BGP travels on a few small tours around the nation each year. The majority of our performances consist of college showcases and club shows.
As much as I love performing music, I have to admit that I enjoy teaching music a little bit more! It's those "Ah hah" moments that we all have on our musical journey that give me the biggest reward as a musical mentor. And helping others to experience those moments is why I love teaching music.

He also attended Rutgers University in New Jersey. Ari began private music lessons around the age of 14 and never turned back. Since graduating from college Ari has taught literally 1,000′s of music lessons to people of all ages, styles, and skill levels.
A uniquely diverse palette, the ability to transcend musical languages, masterful technique and a refreshing sense of artistic urgency make Ari a compelling young musician to watch. Currently residing in the Northwest, Ari performs regularly and can be seen and heard on guitar with his new underground rock band Big High, AriSawkaDoria – an Experimental Trio, and dozens of other unique projects that span genre and style.
Ari was born in Cape Town, South Africa but his early days as an artist were spent in Seattle, WA., where he grew up and first discovered his musical calling. His hard work and raw talent were quickly recognized, and Ari was awarded a scholarship to study music on the east coast after high school. “Moving to New York and studying music for 5 years was one of the richest experiences of my life,” says Ari. “It was from my fellow students and mentors at the New School and Mason Gross School of the Arts that I began to appreciate the true power of musical expression.”
Despite being relatively under the radar, Ari has recorded and performed and rubbed shoulders with a list that reads like a highly diverse Who’s Who of the music scene today: Robert Glasper, Stone Gossard, Peter Buck, Joe Doria, Michael Kang, Kevin Sawka, Michael Shrieve, The Benevento Russo Duo, Barrett Martin, EJ and Marcus Strickland, Reggie Watts, DJ Swamp, Blake Lewis, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Tom Morello, Mike McCready, Skerik, Matt Butler’s Everyone Orchestra, David Tiller, Matt Sircely, New Monsoon, David Brogen (ALO), Shawn Smith (Brad, Satchel), Handful of Lovin, Richie Beirach, Kenny Barron, Reggie Workman, Ted Dunbar, Jack Wilkins, Vic Juris, Hal Galper, Jimmy Owens, Milo Petersen, George Garzone, Armen Donelian, Richard Boukas, Bobby Sanabria, Bill Kirshner, Jimmy Cobb, Gary Dial, Classical Guitarist Virginia Luque, Ralph Peterson, Noah Baerman, Larry Ridly, Mike Richmond, Ralph Bowen, Bill Fielder, Badal Roy, Robert Bedford and many, many more.
Experience, humility, patience, and passion for the arts make Ari a wonderful teacher for people of all skill levels, styles, ages and walks of life.
