Sami C.

Puyallup, WA

About Sami

My name is Sami, I am so very passionate about music. I write songs for a wonderful rock band named Blue Helix. When I'm not rocking out with the band I enjoy teaching others how to play guitar, Sing with power and enthusiasm, and stage presence. I have many years experience teaching music, mainly guitar and vocals. The trick i find is to first off teach timing, and teach Pitch. Performance comes with confidence. I have many different methods on how to train my students, but I have an advantage because i have a recording studio at my backside. With that I have all the equipment and lighting ne
eded to set up a fun and realistic environment for a student to develop their music passions. I look forward to teaching you.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons depend on the level of experience the student already has. If we are talking students whom already now how to play guitar , sing or have live stage presence in the bag, then we work on what we feel could be better. That could be playing guitar solos, to singing harmonies, to understanding how to connect and engage your audience. Now BEGINNERS, my favorite...we start off learning the basics..for guitar, how to read Tablature (which is a number guiding system to train you how to play guitar in 30 minutes) We begin on learning how to read tab, then we start learning the songs you want to learn. By doing this we then play to a program called pro Tab that I plug throughout a sound system to give the student a feeling of playing with the actual band, and believe me that's what it will feel like. We have fun while learning. My students get to enjoy the many instruments and varieties of equipment I've obtained in my studio so that they may learn what it is they are passionate about. Lesson guidelines again varies depending on the level of ability of the student.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars, amps, basses, drums, pa system, mics, everything you can imagine, even Digiridoos!!!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide any and all equipment needed for vocal, guitar or recording lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Acoustic, alternative, as well as Solo artist song writing. I'm very experienced with Music recording, as well as Vocal and guitar performance, stage presence and showmanship. I teach Bass, Guitar, Vocal, recording, speech, and songwriting.

Dan is the best piano teacher I've ever known. He is currently teaching my two kids, and I just signed on for lessons myself. On day one of my children's lessons, he had them sight reading. Dan has a true enjoyment for music, and it comes through in his patient and encouraging teaching style. I would highly recommend him if you or your children are interested in learning how to both play and appreciate music.

Mrs. Quick is a very accomplished musician, a creative teacher and great with her young students. My 12 year old daughter has taken piano lessons with Mrs Quick for 5 years and has developed a love for music and improved immensely over that time. My 9 year old son just started piano lessons with Mrs Quick and is very excited as he is starting to make music.

Mrs. Quick is a wonderful teacher. I love her passion for music and her enthusiasm, laughter and joy in her teaching. She's very patients with her students. My son first started piano when he was 6. He had never play the piano or had any music background before. Mrs. Quick had taught him. Within a few months, he could read his music notes and play many many songs. My 11 years old daughter is also a big fan of Mrs. Quick. Over the years her skills and technique keeps improving. They both enjoy every lessons with her. Thank you Mrs. Quick.
