My first priority is to inspire and motive. Find out the students wants and needs, then tackle them head on. Exploring proper voice techniques and how to use the voice. Proper breathing technique. Learn music theory fundamentals and understanding the language of music so it can be applied to the voice. Phrasing, intonation and song building.

Award-Winning Teacher- Networked/played with various members of Heart, Bad Co & Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice" (Team Blake) - Have Fun Learning Music!

Singing is one of my specialties..

How To Sing - Really Sing!

How You Can Improve Dramatically!

About Matthew
Hi.. My name is Matt. I'm a very energetic, friendly, understanding & passionate music coach who has worked with students & clientele throughout the US. Possessing more than 25 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

In my musical travels I've networked or shared the stage with many famous NW music legends:
1.) Roger Fisher- Heart-2013 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Inductee
2.) Lynn Sorensen- Paul Rogers/Bad Co/KZOK's Spike & Impalers
3.) Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche/Foghat
4.) Jeff Kathan- Paul Rogers/Bad Company/Montrose
5.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche Singer/Operation Mindcrime
6.) Update - For the last year I have been playing off and on with Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice". Season 3 - Team Blake. He is an incredible music
ian and I'm proud to call him and his manager my friends. His new album coming out is nothing short of amazing.

In fact everyone I've mentioned above are pro all the way and great guys as well. I"m honored to have played with them.

I challenge my students to view music more than just as a "skill", but also a tool to communicate effectively and to combat life's obstacles.

I have had many guitar teachers myself including one true Famous Rock Star legend here in Pacific NW. Congrats Rog. U Earned It, & inspire myself, & others everyday.

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.

But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!

I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.

Bottom Line Is... I can help you learn and progress on your instrument faster...

Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important thing in a lesson with me is to learn while having FUN! I am a very laid-back teacher who wants to focus on music making you smile. We will choose material and a pace of learning that will keep you excited to rehearse and return the following lesson improved!

PERSONALIZE your guitar lessons by learning techniques used by your favorite artists in "their" songs.
FEEL FREE learning in a comfortable atmosphere where you can excel successfully as a musician!
CONQUER shyness and insecurities by unleashing the dynamic performer in you!

Most All Styles/Genres/Experience Levels Taught - We go over everything systematically. Music Theory, Songwriting, Chords, Scales, Determining Key Of Songs, Performance, etc

After 3 to 6 months, you should expect to be playing some of your favorite songs and artists accurately

Be sure to check out some of my you tube demos. Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Sound Proof Pro Recording Studio, PA System, guitars, basses, amps, drums, recording gear, mics, mic stands, strobe & lights, fog machine, seating for parents.

Sorry No Disco Ball Yet.. You Can Bring Your Own If You Want Though.
I've Got Some Bell Bottoms Somewhere Around The Studio Here.

*** Travel Equipment ***

I'm really excited to add that to offer lessons online through TakeLessons! It's a great thing to get to work with students all over this country and I'm looking forward to help pioneer the future of music lessons!

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.

My Unique Specialty - is teaching students the rudimental basics 1st, & then how to copy your favorite artists off the CD, radio or iPod, almost note for note. Believe me, it can be done. You just have to know what to listen for..

Brand New - MEASURE your success by recording your music progress along the way. I do own a recording studio, so we can record students progress via audio or video and then post to my YouTube channel.

There are so many colors to the human voice. Unlike most instruments, the human body does not show us what note we are playing or how the air is inhaled in to our stomach. So we end up feeling our way through, using our imagination. This is where the magic happens. In class and outside of it, muscle memory takes its natural course and we begin creating a unique and practical "navigation map" of your voice.
Whether you feel like letting out some steam, working on those high notes or designing your own sound; I am excited to meet you! I have studied (and still studying - learning is endless...) many different techniques and am very committed to sharing what I know with patience and passion.
Lessons are flexible, fun and fit for the students needs.
I take great pride in my students success and can't wait to welcome new ones!

I am thrilled to be working with Ariella Edvy in my quest to learn Hebrew. Her approach of using music and video clips to teach make her lessons fun and relevant. But there are two things that really set her apart -- her art of teaching elocution (she makes you feel it!) and her way of modeling her lessons to each individual's learning style.

I have been teaching for 17+ years. During that time I've learn many instruments as well as the voice. My expertise in a wide variety of instruments and musical practices give me the ability to shape the voice for any style with great versatility.

About Dave
I own a local music/art/production institution which hosts lessons for many instruments and artistic pursuits. Personally, I've been teaching for over 17 years, and I teach beginner to advanced students in instruments like guitar, bass, piano/keys, voice, and drums, and depending on your needs, our studio offers a variety of professional teachers that teach all woodwind, brass, and stringed instruments.

I also am an online teacher for a the world's biggest web platform for guitar instruction, and teach lessons alongside those in Berklee alumni, Musician's Institute, as well with many very famous artists that are now in the music business.

Though I've had the fortune to work with some of the best in studios, as a songwriter, and player, and in education, both professional and informal, I love to teach entry level players up through
the intermediate levels the most. I enjoy watching people discover things for the first time, and in my teaching I really do my best to craft my lessons to the needs of the students. My primary aim in teaching is that I would cultivate in my students a love for music and learning. With these two things in place, a student can go on to be and learn anything.

Join me and my studio. We'll have a great time, and we'll get you to your goals while we're enjoying the journey of music together!!

Aptos, CA

I have been an active opera singer and flutist for the past 10 years, and have extensive training and experience in a variety of musical styles (baroque, classical, romantic, modern, art song, chamber music). Because of that, I am especially well trained in breath management. The one thing you will take away from my lessons, is how to breath and sing comfortably, and naturally without tension.

About Natalie
My name's Natalie, and I'm a voice and flute teacher! I studied Vocal Performance and Flute Performance at the University of California Santa Cruz, and got my Masters of Music in Vocal Arts at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.

I specialize in classical voice and opera, though I believe a good vocal technical foundation is applicable to all musical styles. I also teach music theory, for those just getting into music, and for those who would appreciate a refresher. Since I studied both flute and voice, I am especially well trained in breath management and alignment. The breath is the most important thing in both flute and voice. It's what sends our sound out into the world!

Each person has their own unique voice. It's beautiful in a way that no one can mimic. Whether singing classical music or pop I strive help my students find their own voice. With 5 years of private voice lesson experience I have had experience exploring many genres. I encourage students to being in their own music as well as being willing to explore a piece that I choose.
I fully believe that anyone can be taught to sing with the right amount of dedication. I'll give you my full attention if you will give me yours.

About MiKayla
Like many musicians I have been performing since I was a child. Through the years I have gained experience in a variety of styles of music. From classical to jazz, from country to pop, each style of music has a different twang, but each needs to be approached by a solid technique.
My voice students can expect to gain a solid foundation of proper technique. With that understanding they will be able to approach any style of music and successfully sing it in a healthy way.
Additionally they will acquire basic knowledge of musical terminology, sight reading and music history. As students continue to come to lessons, various information on musical knowledge comes up viscerally. This allows the students to not only gain the ability to sing properly, but understand the music and genre itself.
As a performer myself, I have a background in singin
g solos and in ensembles. I have been a member of music societies, honor choirs, and honor societies. I have had the ability to perform in many areas including traveling all over Florida, and Washington DC as well.

Students will learn singing through operatic and pop technique. We learn about the mechanisms of the throat and voice and how to effectively sing with comfort, ease, and proper technique.

About Lauren
I am a professional electric violinist and rock vocalist. I have been playing in touring bands for 8 years and have released over 5 albums. I play multiple crazy violins from traditional 4-string all the way up to a fretted 7-string! I am one of the few violinists in the world who sings and plays at the same time! I also am known for my highly complex live looping techniques which allow me to be a one woman band.

I teach contemporary violin, voice, and production. I can help with everything from songwriting all the way up to guiding you through producing and recording your music. I have a bachelors degree from Stanford University and a Masters Degree in Communication from the University of Washington.
