About Thomas
Thomas began playing the piano when he was three, had a private teacher at age seven, and studied in high school at Jordan College of Music, Butler University. When he began his music studies at Ball State University, he learned that he could also sing! He earned his Master’s degree at University of Bridgeport, and returned to Ball State for a Doctor of Arts in Voice. His postgraduate education continued winning a fellowship at Aspen Music Festival (Fiora Contino, Margaret Hillis and Charlene Archibeque), Clare College Cambridge (where his teachers included John Rutter, Sir David Willcocks and Stephen Cleobury), The Britten-Pears School (Hugues Cuenod) and a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities to Mozart’s Worlds in Vienna.

Thomas shared that studying at Clare College Cambridge, deciding to remain in London, and
teaching at the Hall Mead School gave him an opportunity to broaden his horizons. He developed a close relationship with British composer Dal Strutt, who composed several pieces for his voice and sang premieres of Strutt’s work at the Greenwich Festival, the British Music Information Center, All Saints Society, Essex, and other venues around London. The guitarist Martin Vishnick invited him to sing songs by the Renaissance English composers John Dowland and Thomas Campion on his recitals. Thomas performed as soloist with the Capella Singers, Ramsey Singers, and the Pink Singers, as their soloist in West Berlin for Hans Eisler’s “Die Mutter.”

Thomas sang the first performances of John Rutter’s “Shadows” for voice and guitar, with guitarist Ramona Hartmetz in Kansas City as well as Rutter’s “Mass for the Children” with the Philharmonia of Kansas City. He served as baritone soloist for Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral, KC, and on tour in Salzburg, Paris, Florence, Westminster Abbey and the cathedrals of Christchurch, St. Mary’s, Southwell, Ely, St. Patrick’s, St. Davids, Birmingham, Wells, Bristol, Worcester, Exeter and Norwich.

After singing opera throughout his college years, his first ‘professional’ opera was “Die Fledermaus” at New Haven Opera. Lyric Opera Kansas City hired Thomas in 1981 for the chorus of “Fidelio” and the rest is history! One hundred plus shows, and counting!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher with a great sense of humor. You will also learn a lot of music theory and music history from me! My lessons begin with some training in reading music (Music Theory) and I suggest that you purchase Alfred's Music Theory Volume One or Two depending on your level of understanding.

After refreshing your music reading and rhythm skills, we will listen to you sing and begin to vocalize. I will develop exercises just for you, to help you develop your voice, making it stronger and more flexible.

When you have warmed up your voice with vocal exercises, we will work together on the music you wish to learn. It could be a song, an aria, a Broadway or Opera aria, or a religious piece.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Large 30 foot living room with two pianos, music stands, keyboard, couches, seating area.
Mac computer, multiple cameras and great sound system.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Bel Canto (beautiful voice) style, operatic singing, Broadway style, Art Songs (Lieder in French, German and Italian.)

He may be good if you want to sing opera. I just didn't connect with him and his 'Style' of teaching. I was looking for more current music and that was where a very large disconnect was.

Right off the bat I could tell that my daughter will flourish with Dr. G. He is very encouraging while simultaneously effective at improving a weak nuance of her current skill set without making it feel like a negative critique. She is very excited to see what he can help her accomplish.

About Katy
I am a licensed Social worker with tutoring experience in and out of college. I have the most experience in tutoring Algebra and other math. I have a student now that I am helping with AP English who has dyslexia. I enjoy watching her grammar skills increase and her overall understanding of the concepts develop. I am great with any age individual and have the patience it takes to work with any kind of student (special needs included).

I believe that people learn the best when they understand the meaning and logic behind what they are learning. When a student can see a pattern develop they develop an understanding that can be universally applied to many different areas of study and life circumstances. Learning is different then memorizing. It is especially important to understand the concepts behind the subject matter when pla
nning continue in a similar learning subject.

I like to prepare for tutoring sessions by reviewing the subject matter in direct correlation to what you are struggling with. This ensures that when we meet we are ready to effectively and efficiently improve your knowledge and clarify any confusion.

About Rebecca
Welcome to a new world with the English language! Learning a new language is one of the most exciting things you can do for yourself, as it has so many benefits. It opens you up to a whole new world full of different experiences, opportunities and friendships! I am a huge proponent of learning a second language. I love teaching English because I love working with internationals. Let me tell you a little about myself.

I have lived and worked in China, and taught many students of all ages, both in this country and abroad. I am TEFL certified and have a master's degree in psychology. I can tailor your language learning to whatever your goals may be- whether it is for work, school, or social needs. I have an eclectic and experiential approach to teaching. My aim is to provide lessons that are fun and effective. I have endless patience for
language learning. I have a sharp ear and am concerned with pronunciation.

Please contact me with any questions about location. I teach in-home lessons on the Eastside of Seattle. Students outside of this area, I generally meet at a library closer to me. I do have availability in Seattle (limited), where I meet students at Beacon Hill Branch Library.

I look forward to working with you!

Sincerely, Rebecca

Rebecca is a very good tutor. She is a very communicative and friendly person. Her lessons productive and interesting. She was always ready to support a conversion and stayed calm about my mistakes :) We practiced new words, expressions and idioms, she helped me to correct my pronunciation and grammar. After our classes I became more confident about my English, especially speaking skills. She makes student very comfortable during the class. However, I highly recommend her as an English tutor!

About Jessie
I am a native Chinese. I did public speech at least once a year for couple years during school. I have taught some Americans about basic Chinese grammar, and i understand the process of learning a second language. I deeply understand the difference between learning Chinese and English, I can make any plans based on your needs, basic communication, reading, grammar, or whatever you need.

I would help you find the best learning way yourself more than just giving you the basic advice. I would help you how to use your mouth to pronouns words correctly more than just letting you imitate. Besides, if you want to know some business skills like PPT, EXCEL and so on, i also could offer the help.

About Ryan
I am an English teacher with a background in Linguistics. I love languages, cultures and people from all over and I enjoy getting to know my students on a level that feels both professional and personal.

By choosing to take a lesson with me you would be skipping the difficulties that come from traditional classes like lack of talking time, uninteresting topics or non-applicable English. Here you will learn real world English in realistic contexts.

I graduated college with a Bachelor's in Linguistics and a minor in Anthropology in May 2018. In August 2018 I received my 140hr CELTA certification. CELTA is the highest level of certification possible for TEFL teachers and you can ensure you are receiving the best education possible.

I am a professional Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Saxophone instrumentalist. I graduated from the University of Memphis with a Bachelor of Business Administration with a major in Management Information Systems with a Minor in Oboe Performance.

Students learning Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Saxophone can expect to improve week to week in their technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Saxophone with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Saxophone students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Saxophone for 20 plus years. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excelle
nce and pop music, depending on the goals and preference of the student.

I have played professionally with Navy Band Mid-South of Memphis, Tennessee for four years and played with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, Memphis Repertory Orchestra, Corinth Symphony Orchestra. I've played with the pit orchestras of Theatre Memphis, Playhouse on the Square, Germantown Community Theatre, DeSoto Family Theatre, University of Memphis Musical Theatre, Harrell Theatre and many more.

As a professional, I currently play Clarinet in the Kansas City Wind Symphony, play in the pit orchestras of Musical Theatre Heritage, Barn Players and Mid-Life Players .
