Sami C.

Puyallup, WA

I teach all styles of singing, as well as performing live, and showmanship.

About Sami

My name is Sami, I am so very passionate about music. I write songs for a wonderful rock band named Blue Helix. When I'm not rocking out with the band I enjoy teaching others how to play guitar, Sing with power and enthusiasm, and stage presence. I have many years experience teaching music, mainly guitar and vocals. The trick i find is to first off teach timing, and teach Pitch. Performance comes with confidence. I have many different methods on how to train my students, but I have an advantage because i have a recording studio at my backside. With that I have all the equipment and lighting ne
eded to set up a fun and realistic environment for a student to develop their music passions. I look forward to teaching you.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons depend on the level of experience the student already has. If we are talking students whom already now how to play guitar , sing or have live stage presence in the bag, then we work on what we feel could be better. That could be playing guitar solos, to singing harmonies, to understanding how to connect and engage your audience. Now BEGINNERS, my favorite...we start off learning the basics..for guitar, how to read Tablature (which is a number guiding system to train you how to play guitar in 30 minutes) We begin on learning how to read tab, then we start learning the songs you want to learn. By doing this we then play to a program called pro Tab that I plug throughout a sound system to give the student a feeling of playing with the actual band, and believe me that's what it will feel like. We have fun while learning. My students get to enjoy the many instruments and varieties of equipment I've obtained in my studio so that they may learn what it is they are passionate about. Lesson guidelines again varies depending on the level of ability of the student.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars, amps, basses, drums, pa system, mics, everything you can imagine, even Digiridoos!!!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide any and all equipment needed for vocal, guitar or recording lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Acoustic, alternative, as well as Solo artist song writing. I'm very experienced with Music recording, as well as Vocal and guitar performance, stage presence and showmanship. I teach Bass, Guitar, Vocal, recording, speech, and songwriting.

Allison P.

Tacoma, WA

All styles! I will teach you skills you will treasure for the rest of your life.

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.

Linda U.

Federal Way, WA

Students learn how to improve their singing voice through breath
support, ear training. Students will learn numerous songs of
various styles and cultures.

About Linda

Currently I teach and tutor students in the following areas: piano,
voice, choir, math and reading. I have experience working with
all developmental levels of children and adults. I offer both individual and group lessons in music and in academics.

Supportive and encouraging, I guide students step-by-step and provide a solid foundation in musicianship and technique so that students are empowered to explore any kind of music. Igniting the imagination of students and providing them with the practical tools to realize their highest potential is the basis of my teaching

My interest in m
usic and performing arts spans a period of over 20 years with taking piano lessons, creative dramatics classes, dance as a very young child. I was very engaged with every aspect of performance. Currently I sing with the Northwest
Repertory Singers which performs throughout the Puget Sound area.

As a master teacher, I use music and art to stimulate student interest in their core subjects and have numerous methods in which to access student progress and to stimulate learning.

For teaching piano, I use the Mayron Cole Piano method which starts with learning rhythm, then keyboard notes, followed by staff notes. Each of the 3 steps is repeated in fun and engaging ways until the student feels comfortable.

We encourage group/ensemble based learning, where each student learns and plays a different part, however simple, to help keep students engaged. Board games, movement and singing are also used to help reinforce music theory concepts.

I teach individual and group piano lessons in my studio, and will travel to a students home, a community center, or to a school, to accommodate a student's schedule.
