Jack L. Seattle, WA

About Jack

I began studying music when I was 10, first in my elementary school and throughout high school and college. I have had amazing opportunities to perform with various musical groups across the country, most notably with the 204th Army Band. I also try to play out locally as much as I can. The two groups that I currently play for are the punk band "Omega Moo", and the indie rock band "The Requisite". In addition to these two groups, I also continue to play for the 204th Army Band, which allows me to tour a different part of the world each year. Other than performing, I am also dedicated to sharing and teaching other drummers to reach their musical goals. I teach privately out of my studio, located in North Seattle. *** Lesson Details *** I like to keep an open dialogue with my ...

Jack is a terrific instructor

Jack is such a positive teacher -- incredibly patient, easygoing, technically proficient, friendly. I'm a little older than most of his students so those new drumming pathways take a bit longer to establish but he makes each lesson fun and I feel I always learn at every lesson some new, interesting and challenging technique to practice which keeps me intrigued and eager to continue with lessons!

Great drummer

I have worked with Jack on a number of projects and he is the best drummer I have ever had the opportunity to rock with. So much of that comes from his commitment to practice, which is something that really shines through as he teaches you. His work ethic kind of rubs off on you and he keeps things exciting by always giving you something to reach for. Plus he's easy to get a long with.

About Greg

I have been playing guitar since I was 14 and I have not looked back since. I love music and I love helping other people discover the joys it can bring. In college I studied classical guitar and got experience playing in many different groups. I currently perform in and around the Seattle area. *** Lesson Details *** My lessons are tailored to each individual student, to their interests and needs. I generally use the Hal Leonard Guitar method but I will use any method best suited for the goals you want to reach. Whatever method we use will be supplemented with other songs and exercises. My lessons tend to be laid back and fun but also challenging. I expect students to do their best and make an effort. *** Studio Equipment *** The lessons are taught in my studio with an amp, ...

While at UW, I studied with John Bishop, Garey Williams, Tom Collier, Steve Korn, Mark Ivester, Josh Woodman, Jeff Wade, and was a member of the UW Drumline under David Reeves.

Way Beyond Excellent

Have you ever had something so amazing that you did not want to share it? Well, that is how I've felt about Nick's lessons. Nick has inspired and challenged my son to become a well rounded percussionist. Nick's professionalism, punctuality, and teaching skills far exceeds five stars. After each lesson, you will receive through notes on what was covered and what needs to be worked on. With all the different learning styles it usually pretty easy to note and area where an instructor could use improvement. This is absolutely not the case with Nick. If you a searching for an outstanding instructor, you've discovered him. My secret is out.

Well-rounded lessons that are worth your time.

I feel a little bit ridiculous for writing 5/5 stars for everything, but I have got to admit, Nick is an excellent teacher. I have been taking lessons on the marching snare with him, and have seen improvement over even the shortest periods of time. Nick can be quite serious when it comes to putting in a good effort, but he is very laid-back and makes the lessons fun, too. He has many approaches to teaching techniques in order to ensure that the student understands, and has helped me discover some of my true potential. I highly recommend Nick, whether you're a beginner, or trying to make the Husky Drumline.

Solid Teacher

Nick does a great job in all respects. He's well-versed in a lot of styles and is capable of teaching pretty much anything you want to learn on drum set. One thing that's set him apart from other teachers I've had is how he's able to precisely identify flaws in your playing while offering specific and direct ways to eliminate those flaws. If you take lessons from Nick and follow his instructions you're definitely going to become a better player.

About Taylor

My Schedule varies week to week. If you would like to take lessons with me but my current listed availability is not suited to your schedule- please contact me for more lesson times. Jazz and blues have been an integral part of my life since I was a child. I began playing music when I was five years old, starting with the violin. I have played many instruments, but the saxophone has become my passion. I have been playing saxophone for 18 years, performing professionally both in the Atlanta and Seattle areas. One of the greatest joys in my musical journey has been to share my musical insights with students. I strive to find each students' creativity and help them cultivate that. I believe that every student has the ability to create beautiful music regardless of experience. I

Erica provides piano lessons to our eight year-old son. She is timely, creative, and an excellent motivator. Erica easily built rapport with our son and made him feel special and respected. She knows how to keep him focused, while having a lot of fun. Our son looks forward to every lesson and we are impressed with how quickly he is advancing.

As a colleague of Erica's I have watched her grow into an incredible performer and educator. Her wisdom in teaching piano supersedes her years and is evident in her thoughtful integration of educational techniques, music theory, diverse repertoire, etc. in engaging lessons tailored for each student. Erica believes in herself and encourages others to do the same, thus creating an environment of "I can" rather than "I cannot or am not." If you are seeking a teacher to nurture a love for the instrument in addition to establishing fine technique in a safe and supportive setting-- call Erica.

From the moment we met Erica we knew we were going to lover her! She put both of our boys (8 and 11) at ease, made them laugh and challenged them right away. My 8 year old had lost interest in piano and after his first lesson with Erica he was hooked. Both boys now voluntarily practice and are learning a ton about overall music education. Erica is prompt, creative and energetic. We are thankful we found her!
