Alexander A.

Tacoma, WA

About Alexander

My name is Alex, and my passion is teaching music. I offer clients a unique learning experience with customized lesson plans and personalized attention to fit your exact goals and needs. These aren’t just words to me…they are a commitment I make to everyone that I have the pleasure of working with.

Here’s who I am…

I earned a Bachelor's of Music from Berklee College of Music where I studied Bass Performance and Composition. I have years of experience playing upright and electric bass in many styles such as rock, jazz, orchestral, and big band. I’ve studied a variety of instruments ov
er the last 20 years including guitar, bass, drums, ukulele, and piano.

Here’s what I can do for you…

I will give you my full attention and unyielding patience with each and every lesson. Together we will explore the principals of music that will enable you to learn to play in any style you choose to study. Ultimately my job is not to teach you to play, but to show you how to teach yourself. I will arm you with a thorough understanding of technique and theory.

I love working with kids and adults. I love brand new players with no experience as well as seasoned players who just want to fill in some gaps in their knowledge. Whatever your age, and wherever you’re at with your playing, I hope you will give me the chance to help you have more fun and confidence in music.

Every player I work with gets access to a personal online Lesson Journal where you can see my notes from our lessons, do homework from your “Stuff to work on” lists, and access my entire digital library! Every lesson is designed just for you.

Let’s get started…

You can take lessons at my studio, in your home, or online via Skype.

For lessons in my studio, I can provide instruments and amplifiers for both of us.

There is ample seating for parents to sit in on lessons. Parking is available in the driveway.

You’re going to love your lessons!
-Alex

Russell C.

Gig Harbor, WA

About Russell

I have been playing guitar for over 20 years and hopefully for a lot longer! I began as a blues player in the south and over time studied jazz, classical and of course rock n roll. I have over 11 years experience as a guitar instructor in music schools and private lessons. I have taught over 200 students from ages 6-65. I consider myself a guitar instructor not a teacher. I instruct you on how to teach yourself the guitar. A mere guide so that you can keep learning this great instrument long after the last lesson ends.  I graduated from Atlanta Institute Of Music in 2002 and have toured around
the country as well as scored for film and studio session work. Lets ROCK!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am like a musical Yoda. :) I have an innovative teaching style that I have honed over 11 years of working with students of all ages, backgrounds and most importantly learning methods. Everyone receives information differently. Some audibly. Some visually and some strictly by hands on doing. My methods are based upon your learning style so that I can optimally convey the lesson information.  I can guarantee with your dedication you will progress farther with my lessons in just a few months than you have in years! I teach Rock, Blues, Pop, Jazz from scales, reading, theory, and ear training to straight up rocking your favorite songs. Whether you are a beginner or a advanced player looking to get out of that rut. Lets begin your journey!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide books only. They must have guitars and amps.

*** Specialties ***
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced Rock, Blues, Jazz and some classical.

I enjoyed it!

I took lessons with Russ in Atlanta GA and really enjoyed myself! His professionalism was awesome and also was a very friendly and accessable instructor. We became great friends and to this day, I credit him with helping me develop the passion I now have for the instrument. Russ was never late and always encouraged me to become not only a better player, but all around performer and person. I would highly recommend him as a teacher for any age and any gender!

Allison P.

Tacoma, WA

About Allison

Hi! My name is Allison and I'm an opera singer. I fell madly in love with music and singing as a young child and was bitten by the opera bug at age 15. Ever since seeing that first opera, I've never looked back. I did lead roles in my high school musicals, then got my Bachelor of Music and my Master of Music degrees in Classical Voice and Opera Performance both from competitive conservatories. Ever since graduation, I've been lucky enough to make my work as a professional singer. I've traveled all over the country and even internationally bringing this amazing art form to audiences. Now
I feel like my dream has come true because I get to do what I love: sing! Pavarotti said, "I think a life in music is a life beautifully spent and this is what I have devoted my life to." I feel so lucky to have a life in music and now I want to share everything I've learned with you.

Students of mine regularly are chosen for lead roles in school and extracurricular musicals and operas and score very high in school music evaluations.

*** Lesson Details ***
During a voice lesson with me, we'll warm up and do vocal exercises for the first half, then we'll learn new music together or work on music you've already learned. I love teaching all styles of classical music and working in many different languages including French, German, Italian, English, and more. I teach lyric diction of all of these languages and the styles of each composer. Above all, lessons with me are relaxed and really fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ electronic piano and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical Vocal Technique. I feel very comfortable assigning repertoire of any difficulty and I am especially confident in my lyric diction knowledge of Italian, French, German, and English. I can teach audition preparation and audition technique, as well as acting and stage technique for singers.

If you want a real professional that draws out the best in you and helps you to rise to the challenge than pick Allison. I was extremely nervous and worried, it was my first real singing lesson, she made me feel comfortable and relaxed immediately. She can be fun as well as challenging. It was a wonderful pleasure to take classes with her and I hope to continue in the future.

Allison was able to identify my natural vocal range in the first lesson. Never thought that I would be comfortable singing in the soprano range, but she has given me week by week goals to build vocal technique and help me see my progress. She has an outgoing and enthusiastic personality! Lessons are a pleasure.

Allison is not only an exceptionally talented vocalist, but a warm and easy going person. Her extensive experience and artistic abilities speak for themself. She is the total package. If you're looking for a challenging yet highly rewarding lesson, look no further.

I have not observed Tim while he is teaching, however, I've known him for three years as he's been in our scholarship program. He is dedicated and motivated;I think he will be an excellent role model for children. I am delighted he's chosen teaching as his profession, as I think it's a very good fit for him.
