My objective is to encourage enthusiasm and diligence in my students towards Music and the Performing Arts, focusing on self-esteem, presentation, and public performance. For strings, I incorporate sight reading with ear training using various acclaimed methods modeled after the Suzuki method, which I am in the process of obtaining certification. I value the importance of ensemble playing, and will orchestrate many such activities.

Tom is very patient with younger students that get distracted easily. One of my children is very interested in learning Irish folk music and Tom is great about helping him explore his interests in music. I love having lessons in home. It's very convient and allows me to keep my toddler entertained while my other children are doing lessons. Lessons are also affordable. I would definitely recommend Tom!

Tom is an excellent harp teacher! He’s guided me in the right directions on my harp journey, expanded my knowledge of folk music, and helped me with my technical skills.

Gabriel is an amazing coach. He takes the time to explain in detail how to discover a character in an easy to understand way. As a beginner he has really helped me learn to break down a script and understand what is going on. He teaches you how to set yourself apart from the crowd in an audition. I highly recommend Gabriel to anyone seeking to better their craft or begin acting!

Gabriel developed a proprietary method of accent reduction that makes it easy to focus on the areas that need change or improvement. The method, combined with Gabriel’s passion for teaching, make the classes dynamic and productive. He quickly identified my problematic areas, and patiently worked with me on changes I needed to make to the way I pronounce certain sounds.

He also provides ample resources and direction for exercises in between the lessons to make the progress faster. I highly recommend Gabriel for accent reduction classes.

Had an amazing first lesson with Gabriel. He really knows his stuff and not only demonstrates but teaches the techniques that he uses. Lots of material and I'm looking forward to the next lesson!

About Erik

Pianist, music director, and vocal coach, Erik was born and raised in Eastern Washington state. As a solo pianist, he has been heard all across the northwest and beyond, in cities including Seattle, Portland, Tacoma, NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Philadelphia, and internationally in Prague and Salzburg. Erik has been a guest artist at Whitman College, Portland State University, The Kairos Chamber Music Lyceum, California State University Summer Arts, the West Seattle Symphony, and the Gig-Harbor Peninsula Symphony Orchestra. In addition to performing, Erik’s passion for teaching has led him to be an adjudicator for various festivals including the Washington Sonata-Sonatina Festival and the Washington Regional Solo and Ensemble Festival.

Erik most recently served as the Music Director for the National Tour of Kander and Ebb's tim

eless musical Cabaret. This production was on tour from December 2017 through May 2018 all across North America. Broadway.com's review praised the musicianship of the show, "Musical director Erik Flaten's musicians are impressive in their dexterity: At one moment, they are providing rich interpretations of the memorable John Kander score, while perhaps at the next they are playing denizens of the Kit Kat Klub or neighborhood thugs, wastrels and other folks of questionable repute. Flaten and his band are given their own richly deserved moments in the spotlight at the top of Act Two and the music director himself is given the well-earned final bow at the end of the curtain call."

Erik currently resides in Philadelphia, where he coaches and plays for a diverse range of singers. In addition to coaching and playing, Erik works as Music Director for musical theater, manages a private studio, and serves as Artistic Director of the Media Performing Arts Series. Previous successes include performances with mezzo-soprano, Angela Niederloh and baritone, Matthew Hayward in Portland, and a performance of the Grieg piano concerto with the West Seattle Symphony. Upcoming engagements on the East Coast include collaborative work with with soprano, Leah Golub.

Students of Erik have the opportunities to perform in studio recitals and workshops.

Erik made an excellent first impression with our beginner level 9-year-old son. Erik’s knowledge and experience, mixed with his teaching style, seem to be a good fit for him.

About Jon

I'm a professional performer, educator, and recording artist. I received my Masters in Music from New Mexico State University, and my BA and BMA from the College of Wooster in Ohio.

Students can expect to improve their technique and performing repertoire within a matter of weeks. We will collaborate to find music that he or she is interested in, plus work on exercises that will build technique and sound quality. It doesn’t matter WHAT you’re playing, but HOW you play it.

I’ve been a musician for over 20 years and played in a wide variety of settings. In lessons, I’ll draw from that experience to help students achieve their musical goals.

As a performing artist, I’ve played in classic big bands, small jazz combos, and R&B style horn sections, just to name a few. I’m passionate about classical music, jazz, R&B, and funk, but good

technique is good technique, and a proficient musician should and can jump from one style to another with ease.

About Amanda

Hi there, my name is Amanda and I am a passionate musician! I am a violist of 14 years, a pianist of 16, as well as a songwriter and (currently) a student in music production. Music is one of the most important aspects of my life, and I enjoy sharing it with others more than anything.

If you would like a relaxed, fun-focused experience, we'd be a perfect match. I believe anyone's journey into music and improving their skill set should be as enjoyable as possible. I will go out of my way and do everything I can to make sure that you're playing pieces you love, and I will actively look for music I think you'll like. I will do everything I can to help you improve your understanding of techniques and music theory as well.

I like to think I am fairly flexible with schedules and I will accommodate to any needs you may have. If you have any

questions or anything, please shoot me a message and I will see what I can do for you!

Sean B.
"Fawn has taken my vocal range to a whole new level. She is VERY knowledgable and strives to get the best out of you. After only a few lessons I noticed a
significant change and how much easier it was for me to hit those high notes. Not to mention she is an awesome person and fun to work with. I've had other vocal teachers in the past 4 years and would recommend Fawn over any one else, hands down!"

Shawn Lloyd
"Excellent"

"Ruth was conscientious about starting my son at his proper age and learning ability."
Nathan
"Bobby's a very enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable drummer who also knows how to teach well. Often times musicians don't always know how to teach their
craft, talented as they may be, but Bobby certainly knows both how to play and how to teach. I'd recommend him to anyone wanting to learn or brush up on their drumming skills."
