About Jacob

I started playing piano when I was 5, guitar when I was 8, and I've been singing most of my life. I play in a band with two friends I've known since way back then - we wrote music then, and we still do now. I took guitar lessons until I was 12 or so, learned bass guitar and sharpened my skills thro

Hey! Nothing matters to me more than the music community, and especially the local music community. It's important for me to understand my students individually and create lesson plans that are tailored to the individual. Learning is meant to be fun. I love using references, analogies, and tools that match the student, creating a learning environment that is very comfortable. What makes me unique is I often follow up my students through text or phone call to assess learning. It's important to me to follow up throughout the week and answer questions at anytime. I like to think of my students as friends!

About Chivan

Hey! My music journey began 9 years ago, when I learned my first Taylor Swift song on the guitar. Fast forward, I was able to translate my music knowledge into ukulele, bass, music theory, ear-training, percussion, and piano. After receiving my Associates in Arts at South Puget Sound Community Co

Chivan was a great teacher! I have some basic music background but he was able to make chords and music theory sound simple. He helped me with my technique and my playing got much better! Would recommend him to anyone :)

Chivan is excellent! I highly recommend his lessons.
Micaiah
Chivan is a fantastic guitar teacher, and not to mention a rockstar! He’s very laid back and relaxed when he teaches, makes you feel very comfortable and doesn’t have a hint of judgement about him. 10/10 would take lessons from him again.

I have students that are in every walk of their guitar playing journeys. The material and methods we use to learn guitar will vary considerably based on your level of ability/knowledge and age.

About Jason

Music comes from the soul and is an incredibly vulnerable form of expression. When individuals perform for people, including a teacher, they put themselves and imperfections out to be seen. That's why it is important for students to feel safe and confident in their instructor, something you will

I never touched a guitar before. I just went and bought one, found Jason, and my entire life has been changed. He is a great teacher and I am amazed at how learning guitar makes everything in your life better! I especially notice that it makes you smarter. I plan to train with him for many years!

I am able to teach multiple styles of music at all levels of proficiency to students of all ages. I tend to tailor the lesson to what each individual student is interested in learning instead of force feeding the same dry, tedious curriculum from a text book to everyone. It is my belief that lessons should be enjoyable and entertaining as well as educational if one expects to maintain a high level of interest!

About Caleb

I have been playing music since the age of six. I was raised strictly on classical piano and voice lessons until I picked up the guitar just before the age of ten. By my senior year of high school I had learned how to play bass and drums, was writing and recording my own material, and had formed my

My first priority is to inspire and motive. Find out the students wants and needs, then tackle them head on. As we do this proper technique is a must, it is the difference between a good guitarist and a great guitarist. Music theory and understand the language of music. The better we know the language the better we can speak it. Learn songs and music is a must ...it is the reason why we play.

He's an outstanding teacher.

He is very helpful, and easy to learn from. He is very patient if you don't understand the material right away. He is also very easy to understand. I recommend him as a teacher

"Tony is truly one in a million! He is an incredibly talented musician and an amazingly effective teacher. He has been teaching my 11 year old daughter weekly for the last three years. His approach is very methodical and he has helped her advance in skills each month. She has built her self confidence along with her ability to the point when she can comfortably read music and pick up any songbook and play.

He is a patient, gentle and kind and my daughter looks forward to each session and practices on her own nearly every day. It has been a great experience and we look forward to continuing to work with Tony for years to come. We could not have found a more perfect teacher."

"Highly Recommended!!

I had taught myself guitar in college, and haven't really played much since. I decided to get back into it, and Aaron has been an outstanding teacher. I can pretty much read tab and learn songs on my own, but with Aaron, we break down the theory behind the songs. This is a great way to learn because I'm learning theory in the context of learning all these different songs that I love. He is also teaching me things like scales and improvisation, all within the context of the songs I choose. This type of learning makes classes REALLY fun.

Aaron is patient, flexible, easy-going and highly knowledgable. All of which adds up to an excellent teacher. I can't recommend him highly enough!"

"Dave's a fantastic teacher!

I have been playing guitar for over 25 years, and I been a student of Dave's since 2008. As part of his teaching style, Dave works with his students to identify their goals and expectations for studying guitar. He uses this information to tailor lessons to the individual students based on their level of expertise. Dave incorporates his terrific knowledge of music theory into his lessons so his students learn to play guitar (e.g., the theory behind a particular music style or technique), not just how to repeat a song. Dave's instruction has helped me become a more well rounded guitar player with better practice habits focused on improving my playing. I would strongly recommend Dave for beginner, intermediate, or advanced guitar players that want to learn how to play guitar."
