Pascal has really helped me with the piano lessons. I spent few weeks before lockdown in 2020 with Pascal my piano teacher and I'm happy with my progress. Even though I couldn't finish my entire duration due to work, I am happy with the lessons I had before traveling. Pascal is a very intelligent piano teacher. I will recommend his service to anyone who wants to learn music the right way.
Abigail
Pascal is a very good music teacher. He explains into details the basics of music and ensures his students understand one topic before he moves to another. He gives practice assignments and ensures that you do it by checking on you regularly. He is very accomodative and hence his students find no difficulty asking questions, and yes, he's got answers for every question. Your students appreciate you Pascal, keep up!

I've had the pleasure of taking lessons from Ahmad for a couple of years. He is a very knowledgeable and patient instructor with the ability to find minor technical flaws in my playing and easily correct them. I really enjoy his philosophy and musical understanding with a really high ability to dissect and explain elements of a song and relate it to music theory that's easily understandable. On top of that he is a super nice guy that exudes nothing but a positive attitude and gives one the impression that anything is possible in one's musical effort that is really infectious. Don't hesitate to give Ahmad a try.
Dan
Ahmad is no doubt one of the most humble, approachable, and skillful guitar teacher you can find around Seattle. I have been studying with Ahmad for the past 3 and a half months. Ahmad was not the first music instructor I had. He is however, the best one so far by a large margin. Since the first lesson Ahmad has been extremely professional and organized in his teaching methods. He is able to quickly identify my strengths and weaknesses as a player, tailor his lessons to fit my capabilities, and help me improve in great effectiveness.

I took lessons once a week with Ahmad, and every week I could see noticeable improvements because Ahmad assigned me homework that was fun and challenging but never frustrating. But beyond this, not only have I become a more skilled guitar player, through Ahmad's help I was also able to apply a lot of the theoretical music knowledge in other aspects. When I hear a piece of music, I find that I am slowly able to identify parts of the music, break it down into logical steps, and connect the music to the fretboard of the guitar.

I am a college student with a busy schedule both on and off work, but with Ahmad I was able to greatly improve nonetheless. Thank you Ahmad, I really look forward to coming back and be your student again.
Benjamin
I have been playing guitar for many years. And before I met Ahmad, I worked with many teachers. However none of them had much of a systematic approach. Ahmad does! And I have come to realize how important it is to study this instrument in the right sequence or something pretty close. The thing I appreciate the most is that Ahmad has taught me musicality. He has taught me how to follow the chords when soloing. Prior to our lessons it was a daunting task for me. Now landing on the "pretty" notes has become very easy. It makes me so happy. I believe such experience is very precious. To me it's the charm of music!
He has solid, professional theoretical and practical skills. He is super organized. His explanations are very clear. In addition, he is funny so the process is very pleasant. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate guitar player, I can guarantee that you can learn a lifetime of knowledge from him.

Very good first lesson. Will continue with her.
Tonya
Bebé is one of the best voice teachers I have ever had. I have had a few instructors who just run you through exercises and make you sing random songs, but Bebé takes the time to explain everything very thoroughly. She is very respectful and very flexible when it comes to scheduling. All you have to do is communicate any concerns with her and she makes sure to go out of her way to accommodate all of your needs. I have enjoyed every lesson that I have had with her and even on days where I don’t have the energy, she always finds a way to prep me up. I couldn’t have asked for a better teach and my voice has grown so much. I find it way easier to sing and hit notes that I had trouble with when first starting off. I recommended her to a few of my friends and will continue to do so to anyone looking for an experienced and amazing teacher.

"My son began taking piano lessons about 3 months prior to our finding Fawn. Before switching instructors, he hated his lessons and practicing. Piano held no interest for him. Once he began taking lessons with Fawn, everything changed. He practices on his own for longer periods than he is required to, and we are thrilled about it! Fawn has instilled a love of the craft in him. He loves it and he loves learning from her. He is so impressed by her career, songs and ability and tries his best to be his best for her. Thank you, Fawn!"

"My son warmed up to him very quickly - it said true they say kids know it cause me being the mother I felt the compassion and warmth Gabe had and so did my little one. We have been taking classes With someone else prior where I had to drive and go and this has been so much easier for us busy moms who can stay at home and continue the work while our child is learning- Gabe is so patient and has this calm demeanor and that is so natural that kids pick up and feel comfortable- to teach kids you have to have a certain personality and Gabe sure does. I trust him so much and feel comfortable while he is teaching my son and I’m in the office downstairs- I immediately felt comfortable with him teaching my son and being in my home which is not easy to feel with just anyone- he truly cares and I have never seen him look at his watch just to get out but rather leaving the child with enough to learn and practice and that alone comes from his quality of care and compassion that he takes pride in to make sure these kids learn. I think my son learned much quicker then the previous teacher I took him too. He is made for this and I would

"Laura is a great instructor for any student, especially for beginners who can learn and adapt quickly. She is extremely patient with students and thoroughly explains everything. She tailors music choices to the student’s preference while also making sure classical pieces and theory are covered at the same time. She encourages students to be creative and individualistic instead of enforcing strict boundaries when playing modern pieces. Laura consistently gives constructive critiques and positive reinforcement to help students understand their mistakes and fix them properly. Overall, she is an excellent piano teacher and I could not recommend her more. In only 1.5 years of lessons with Laura, I have improved tremendously thanks to her brilliant style of teaching."

"I came back to learning piano about a year ago after not playing for more than 20 years and didn't know what to expect in terms of how much I could realistically improve. Under Fawn's patient guidance, the change in my playing has been beyond anything I imagined possible. Fawn's approach to technique, practicing and performing is intuitive and very effective and has given me the confidence to tackle more and more challenging pieces believing that with her help I will get there eventually. I would highly recommend Fawn for anyone wanting to improve their playing, whatever age or ability."
