Giuliana C.

Seattle, WA

About Giuliana

Hi there! I'm a music teacher and private academic tutor for students with learning disabilities, but I have taught in every capacity you can think of! Since I graduated with a degree in music (viola) with honors from UC Berkeley in 2010 I have been a full time substitute, classroom music/orchestra/private teacher with 42 private students a week and a k-12 academic tutor, all in public and private schools with both high and low income students from various demographics. But more to the point, I love teaching and tutoring. I believe in giving back the quality education I've received, and there'
s nothing more fulfilling than helping someone else reach their goals. My students tell me I'm a fun, engaging teacher who is understanding and accommodating to their needs, but not afraid crack down and be strict when necessary. I am currently in the process of moving to Seattle to attend the University of Washington for my Master's in Music Education and Cognition. I look forward to meeting you!

I had the pleasure of having Ms. Conti as a music teacher at Brighton Private Elementary School. As the principal, I was amazed at her ability to instill in children her love for music. I was also inspired by her understanding of the power music plays in our lives and more specifically in our learning of all subject matter. She is amazing, talented, and kind.

Giuliana is a wonderful teacher. She has been both patient and thorough as I stumble through the basics of learning the violin. It's a great help that she has also been flexible with the lesson sessions, as I often deal with an irregular schedule.

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.

James R.

Seattle, WA

About James

I've been exploring music since age 13 when I started on guitar and electric bass. I've gigged around the Puget Sound area for over a decade and am passionate about many styles of music. I've played in jazz and blues ensembles while studying music in Boston and Seattle. I currently play in a band called Wax Orchards in Seattle and perform on my own as well. I play acoustic and electric guitar, electric bass, and have taken up Ukulele in recent years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I provide my own student binder that is divided into two main sections: Songs and Fundamentals.

SONGS
I will wri
te up any song for you that you'd like to learn, assuming it's within your skill level. If you have no particular recommendations, I bring in songs regularly of my own choosing as well. Student notebooks come with at least five beginner songs. I am happy to go through songbooks students may have purchased.

FUNDAMENTALS
In the fundamentals part of the student binder, scales, chords and theory are presented in an easily readable fashion. These parts of lessons become improvisation time, as the student learns how to apply these scales and chords.

I do a mixture traditional music notation and tabulator in my sessions. Accessories required are a tuner, three-ring binder with sheet protectors and music stand.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring one of my acoustics to my lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I play all kinds of music and can assist with anything from pop to jazz to metal to folk and acoustic playing. Some of my personal favorite artists are The Beatles, John Frusciante, Paul Simon, The Smashing Pumpkins and Bob Marley & The Wailers.

Eric helped me with guitar and Pro Tools. The lessons were very useful as I was recording demos which eventually turned into an EP. Eric helped me learn how I could add tracks to work I had already recorded in Chicago so we were able to work out some vocal harmonies and layers. The result was great. Once schedule allows I plan on resuming lessons if possible!

awesome and funky bass teacher

Eric is an amazing bass teacher. He has great taste in music and he KILLS it on the bass. His funky grooves inspired me to practice for hours everyday. His music taste is very diverse, so if you have a song you want to learn he will probably be able to teach it to you. He also has a very keen ear and will teach you the skills you need to develop your ear so that you can jam.

If you want to rock at bass, definitely call Eric.

Christopher M.

Seattle, WA

About Christopher

H, there! My name is Chris, and I love teaching people how to sing! Whether it's brushing up on your karaoke skills or getting ready for the next school contest or professional audition, I'd love to help!

I attended Pacific Lutheran University for Vocal Performance, where I studied voice with Marcia Baldwin of MET Opera fame, and before that with George Peckham - the teacher of Merrilee Rush, and Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart. I've had the great privilege of working with such noted professionals as Marvin Hamlisch, Asher Fisch, and Peter Phllpsand with local Jazz legends such as Frank Dem
iero and Phil Matson.

In addition to teaching and singing, I conduct Illumni Men's Chorale (America's Got Talent, Season 6!), and I was the staff Vocal Coach for the Seattle Choral Company, Seattle SeaChordsmen, and the Seattle Men's Chorus - the largest male choir in the world.

I love teaching all styles of music, and while affectations may vary, the basics are all the same. If you're interested in lessons, please say hello!

Just Sing!

Chris
