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

*** Specialties ***
Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Piano, Drums, Percussion, Music Theory

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!

Rian D.

Seattle, WA

About Rian

A native of West Seattle, Rian took his first piano lessons at the age of seven. His middle school music teacher recognized Rian’s musical talent and gave him his first public performance opportunity during the school’s annual musical. Rian would go on to play piano for the middle school productions for 3 more years. As Rian progressed into high school his talent increased as well. As a freshman in high school Rian successfully tried-out for the award winning JFK High School Jazz Band and soon took over as the primary pianist. While performing at a high school jazz band festival he was sin
gularly awarded the “Best Rhythm Section” award, a prize usually given to a band’s entire rhythm section. Rian concluded his high school musical career with a trip to the Washington Music Educators Association Solo & Ensemble Competition (WMEA) after achieving a 1+ Superior rating for Solo Piano Performance.

Pursuing his passion for music, Rian attended Washington State University (WSU) and studied under the tutelage of Julliard alums Jeffrey and Karen Savage. During his time at WSU, he expanded his boundaries and became accomplished in his study of classical piano, earning gold medals in multiple years at Musicfest Northwest. In addition, Rian performed as a soloist with the Washington-Idaho Symphony as a winner in their Young Artist Competition. Prior to his senior year at WSU, Rian received the Presser Scholarship. The Presser scholarship is a nationally funded scholarship awarded by each University to only one student each year. The Presser Scholarship represents the highest level of academic achievement in the United States.

Following graduation from WSU in 2010, Rian began teaching piano and working as a freelance musician in Seattle. Rian joined the staff of the Ballard Academy of Music and Dance as a piano instructor in addition to working as an accompanist for several local churches, high schools and music schools.

Rian’s passion for playing, teaching, and learning about music has taken him throughout the Pacific Northwest and parts of the east coast of the United States. Besides his work as an accompanist and teacher, he also maintains an active presence in the Seattle music community, frequently volunteering at local events and serving as Secretary of the Seattle Music Teachers Association. As an educator, Rian understands the value of continued learning and has conducted independent study with Randy Halbersadt, jazz professor from Cornish College of the Arts, as well as studying classical technique privately under World-Renowned Pianist-Teacher Peter Mack.

Rian became a Licensed Simply Music Teacher in 2013.

rian is a good teacher

he is the only piano teacher i have had. i was teaching myself piano and was given some lessons as a gift, and i chose him somewhat randomly from the teachers listed on takelessons dot com. i had several lessons from him and he gave me lots of good ideas. i would have continued with him, but for circumstances out of my control. i would recommend him as a teacher. he has lots of experience and can tailor his teaching depending on what you want to do

Rian is patient which is what I needed. He makes you feel comfortable and has a low key way of pointing out areas for improvement without offending.Would recommend him to others who want to play piano, regardless of how old you are.

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.

Joshua B.

Seattle, WA

About Joshua

While building a professional career, I'm looking to re-engage with my roots and experience as a educator. I specialize in helping kids learn how to learn. It's one thing to teach a student the answer, but it's exponentially better to teach students how to find the answer for themselves, encouraging and guiding along the way.

I grew up in Ohio and went to one school district my entire public school life where I took honors and Advanced Placement classes through high school. I also participated in band, earning membership into the Ohio All-State Honor band two times.

I went to Ohi
o State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Suma Kum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band.

I have a breadth of experience for someone my age having worked with youth in schools and on social programs, both in English and Spanish, and some in Hebrew.

I currently live in Madison Valley.

I'd like to write a quick testimonial about the tutor I found here on Takelessons. Joshua has worked with my 1st grade brother for about 8 weeks and he has made impressive progress in both his reading and math skills. He has also helped discover my brothers learning condition, dyslexia, but it seems like Joshua has had no problem with that. My brother has enjoyed working with him and is demonstrating new learning, this delights me. Joshua has also developed a fun relationship with my other brothers too. I could not more strongly recommend Joshua to tutor any student.

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
