Joni C.

Woodinville, WA

About Joni

I am a college graduate and lifetime learner of musical artistry having 2 years practical piano teaching experience after 25 years of employment at a local higher education institution. I can engage the beginner in such a way that they will be motivated to continue into advanced and a professional level. I started my own music education at the age of 5 and have loved music ever since. My music career began in 3rd grade when I performed in a musical play and participated in vocal choral groups. I continued to improve in piano and vocal skill and traveled extensively with a national organization and a college representative team. My travels took me to Europe where I had the privilege to perform in places such as Notre Dam, palace of Versailles, the Basilica in Rome and other places. I ...

Violin · In studio
Jae-In is one of the most competent violinists in the Seattle area. As a teacher she is very analytical and puts a lot of thought and effort into her students's progress. I am a former semi-professional player who stopped playing the violin for 20 years. I recently started practicing again, but felt that I needed more direction and guidance. I have progressed more in the last two months working with Jae-In than I have in the previous 1 1/2 years since I picked up the instrument.

I was lucky to study with her cuz she is a professional, personable, and motivating teacher.
I leaned not just how to play violin, but how to practice on my own and listen to myself. So I notice that I'm improving my playing each time I practice.

She's the finest violinist and teacher I've seen.

Jane's very devoted and responsible to her students and she knows how to keep them inspired and loving playing violin.
My son couldn't get into the college receiving full scholarship without her.

Percussion
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.

Drum
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.

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.

William has a great attitude and an immense knowledge of martial arts. He is extremely skilled, compassionate, and has a no-ego, non-judgmental approach to his teaching. I recommend this instructor for students both new and experienced. I guarentee he has something to bring to the table to grow you as a person and a martial artist no matter what your background may be.

Krav Maga · In studio
William was a great instructor. I had never done any kind of martial arts before and he was extremely helpful. He started with the most basic aspects (posture, stance, etc) and made sure I had those down before moving on to various punches and kicks. By the end of the lesson he was integrating more complicated combinations and increasing the pace, but always closely watched my form to ensure I hadn't forgotten what we'd started with. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking to increase or improve their martial arts abilities.

A wide body of knowledge at his disposal to share with his students. Excellent technique and endurance training. Lots of possibility for cross training and versatility. Also has a great passion for the philosophical side of the martial arts.
Very little that he wont touch on if you merely ask.
