Kelly A.

Seattle, WA

About Kelly

After years of teaching all levels, and many different styles of voice and piano lessons, I can tell you this-- I LOVE teaching! My students have ranged from 5 to 65, from classical piano, or jazz/ pop piano to pop/ rock/ jazz singing, and no matter what we always have a great time. I guarantee that in our lessons, you will see progress almost immediately... but above all, learning music is FUN! A little extra info....
**In 2012 I finished a Masters degree at NYU in Jazz Studies, and just finished a new album of some jazz, folk, and original music.
**I perform in New York City and Seattle,
and I tour with my band a few times each year
**I taught jazz piano and voice lessons for four years at NYU and also through the New York Jazz Academy and Brooklyn Music Factory, from beginning to advanced, classical, pop or jazz -- and I teach rock bands how to learn music by ear and have fun playing with other people! I have also been teaching privately for six years out of my home.
**I organize and teach vocal workshop classes, where singers can learn how to work with a band.
**I am joining the Cornish College of the Arts adjunct jazz faculty in Spring 2015!

I moved back to Seattle in April 2014 after being in NYC for four years -- completing my Master of Music degree (NYU), living, teaching, and performing in Brooklyn and Manhattan. NYC was amazing, and I'd love to share with you all of the cool things I picked up during my time there. From 2005-2010, I lived in Seattle and taught music lessons. I graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in Jazz Performance (voice) and performed a lot around Seattle-- from jazz clubs to concert halls-- performing pop, rock, soul, jazz and even working in a Steely Dan Tribute Band!! (your parents might appreciate that more than you do)

More than anything, I'm fascinated by the different ways that students learn and always love figuring out what kind of learning works best for YOU.

*** Lesson Details ***
I love watching my students progress and enjoy their music, no matter what style they enjoy or what level they are. I work with students to pick out music that they'll enjoy working on-- it's always more fun to learn songs you love!
I'm a pretty laid back teacher, but I work to inspire my students to try their hardest and do the best that they can do. I will provide you will the exercises, materials, and right level of songs to help you meet your goals, and together we can assess a plan for our lessons.

In our lessons we will cover a variety of topics, including:

--Strong, Healthy TECHNIQUE so that you can gain a command of your instrument and play or sing whatever you choose. Through various EXERCISES you will develop strength, control, musicianship, and good habits.
(Vocalists:)
It is important to develop a healthy technique so that you can sing whatever you want without getting fatigued or injuring your voice. We'll work on developing strong technique and finding your own unique SOUND-- we'll choose music that is right for your vocal style and music that YOU connect with so you can really express yourself.
(Pianists):
No matter whether you want to play classical, pop, or jazz, you'll want your fingers to be strong and agile enough to get the sound that you want out of the instrument. With good technique you can play anything!

--Rhythm, subdivision, and groove

--Ear-training & Music Theory (chord qualities, pitch matching, easy transcription)

--Building your REPERTOIRE so that you have songs to play, and discussing techniques specific to each style of music you study

--Arranging or Communicating with a band (if that is something which interests you)

--Performance considerations.... developing confidence and personal expression!

My goal is to inspire students to play their instruments (or sing!), develop good habits and encourage healthy curiosity..... but most of all to Love Playing Music! 

*** Studio Equipment ***
full music room with 88 f/w keyboard with music stand, amp, microphone (if applicable), seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide lesson plans and corresponding handouts, exercises, examples, etc. If the student is taking piano lessons they should have access to a keyboard or piano at home. Where appropriate I can also bring a vocal microphone to work on microphone technique.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz/ pop piano and voice, and have a strong background in classical and jazz theory and technique. I typically design a curricula which includes technical exercises from my classical background and then focus stylistically on the genre that the student is interested in. I have extensive experience both performing and teaching in many jazz, pop, rock and soul styles-- I try to help the student find their unique voice while establishing a strong foundation of healthy technique.

Music Theory · In studio
Kelly really knows her theory, inside and out. And she can explain how it all works. It's much easier to memorize a piece once you understand the theory behind it: the progression of the chords, and their functions. I wish my former teachers had known theory instead of making me memorize all those notes with no explanation.

Piano · In studio
I have been studying jazz piano on my own for a while and started lessons with Kelly a few months ago. Her knowledge of chord theory and practical application has helped me to move along very quickly. She is also very supportive and a pleasure to study with. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

When my family moved from Iceland earlier this year one of the first thing we did was searching for singing teacher for our 16 years old daughter an we could not have been luckier meeting Kelly. She welcomed our daughter and from first lesson my daughter has been improving her skills.
I can surely recommend her and am confident that anyone will become better musician learning from her!

Brett R.

Seattle, WA

About Brett

MUSIC INSTRUCTION AND
ENJOYMENT OFFERED. Very enthusiastic and
experienced musician available for instruction offering the following:

# In-depth written music theory coupled with an equivalent of ear training and tone
recognition

# Introduction to performance skills with instruments that include:

Guitar - electric & acoustic
Drum Kit and percussion rhythms
Piano/Keyboard

# Group lessons or private instruction, depending on personal preferences and age
groups

Personal
experience includes:

1) 15 years of GUITAR: professional perfor
mance
and composition. Styles include rock, folk, blues, chord
progressions, and alternate tuning.

2) 15 years of DRUMS and PERCUSSION: Latin, swing, blues, as well as rock, funk, punk, and reduced top forty beats.

3) 15 years of PIANO: which utilize
several years of personal instruction in classical, popular, and some ragtime,
in addition to an intimate knowledge of Piano Proficiency (scales & modes,
chord structures & inversions, common chord progressions, intervals, circle
of 5th, and finger exercises)

4) 2 years of MUSIC THEORY and COMPOSITION at college level.

Lessons will include additional materials to the primary instrument such as sheet music for
sight reading, rhythm patterns, tabletures, and chord charts.

***Above all, I encourage students to select those pieces, tunes, or songs that have appealed to them the most; perhaps even inspiring them to learn a musical instrument in the first place. Adaptations are a common and enjoyable part of the teaching process.

*** Lesson Details ***
Expect efforts, on my part, to steer learning into areas of the students particular interest as well as conventional genres such as classical, popular, folk, blues, etc...

Moreover, I rely on ear training as a strong complement to written music theory and sight-reading; often using recorded music samples or simple patterns on a piano.

I try to balance method-type published lesson books with beginner, intermediate, or original composition sheet music to specifically selected pieces.

Ideally, with a reasonable practice schedule each week, full comprehension of the written music grand staff and an ear to catch a false note will become second nature. By then, more opportunities to learn actual pieces and styles become greater, having got the initial learning curve under the students belt.

*** Studio Equipment ***
*snare drum
*electronic keyboard/piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
lesson material/music media samples can be provided for copy
student would have own instrument

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.

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 las
t 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 technologies (educational psychology and online learning). I am very involved in the theater industry within Seattle and direct productions from time to time.

I work out of my apartment close to Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington. I can also arrange online lessons. I am, however, not mobile.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Scott C.

Seattle, WA

About Scott

Scott C. is a Seattle-area singer/songwriter, musician, and artist offering private, individually-focused instruction since 2005 in multiple areas of self expression including for guitar for performance, pleasure, and personal growth; creative storytelling through songwriting, music theory, and metaphor exploration; and personal voice development.

Having worked with students from 9 to 60 years of age from zero to 30 years of experience playing, Scott has recognized that each student brings a distinct investment and style to the work of personal development. However, committing quality time
in which to retain, practice and nurture new skills beyond scheduled lessons tends be a nearly universal struggle in the 21st century.

For busy minds in a busy world, Scott works intentionally to enrich information comprehension and enhance the value of practice. His own distinct style of teaching and coaching draws from contemporary neuropsychology, learning theory, multi-modal thinking, mindfulness, self-awareness, and Zen thought. Whatever the bounds of your lesson, he will help you define cognitive tools for potent learning, foster your self expression, and widen the space of your life for new realms of possibility.

Scott is also the Donor Representative for downtown Seattle on behalf of Puget Sound Blood Center, and front man and primary songwriter for the seven-piece 'new vintage soul' band Letters From Traffic.

Took guitar lessons from Scott for about a year! I was such a beginner I didn't even have a guitar at the time! Not only did he find a lovely guitar for me, his lessons were awesome. He was always on time, very patient and took your improvement seriously. Great guy and great teacher. Highly recommend!

I took guitar lessons from Scott for about 6 months when I was living in Seattle. He had a room in his house dedicated to music and he was always prepared for our lesson together. Scott not only taught me different basics and techniques of playing as well as theory, but he also helped me break some self-taught bad habits. Scott encouraged me to look at and listen to music in a different way than just strumming a chord or plucking a string. He taught me how to play with my heart and to play with passion. He also told me about "The Song" which is that moment in playing that you just play whatever shows up and you keep playing and everything around you disappears. And its in this moment that real music happens and your experience of life shifts. If you choose Scott as your instructor, I promise you will not be disappointed.

I had 8 guitar lessons with Scott, and if it wasn't for moving out of state, I would have kept going much longer. Scott is extremely skillful, but also continuously re-considering what he knows, and looking at things from different angles. This really makes him an amazing teacher, as he both shares that learning and curiosity with you, and also is able to give you a different way of looking at things if you're having trouble or just want a deeper understanding. I've enjoyed tinkering with my guitar for many years, but Scott really helped me find the right tools to enjoy practicing, learning, and exploring the instrument.
