Joni C.

Woodinville, WA

Performance in music is simply the way in which a person chooses to deliver their talent. There are good and bad performers, and then there are GREAT performers. I'm committed to helping musicians deliver a solid, credible performance that integrates their own specific style and personality with the delivery itself. Some topics covered in lessons includes artistic expression, audience/performer connectivity, overcoming "stage fright", pre-performance methods, and much more.

About Joni

I am a college graduate and lifetime learner of musical artistry having 4 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 organizati
on 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 currently teach groups of 6 in community programs in Kirkland and Bellevue. I teach any style of music from classical to gospel. I have a strong classical background so I enjoy teaching all my students, even as young as 4 to learn about and play classical pieces (e.g. Beethoven, Bach, Mozart). Since my vocal involvement has allowed me to participate in school, church and community music groups and singing solo, I have a strong background in pianist accompaniment which is a unique skill that every piano musician should master. This creates a well rounded approach so that the pianist can participate and showcase their talent in various ways. I like to teach students to play beyond what is in the written page, and to develop a musical ear through improvisation and memorization. My students have the opportunity to play in optional recitals with other students and for family members.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will teach you how to read music, play by ear and improvise. I believe theory, technique, scales, chords and memorization is the foundation of a strong musical background. While learning the basics a student is working on classical, popular, jazz, and secular, or church music. I am strict about fingering, technique, and interpretation, enforcing this in a caring way, playing an example of what I require. I like each student to be able to have a knowledge of the entire keyboard not just the middle octaves. I teach rhythm as the tempo and note variations are the soul of a song. If possible, and providing scheduling coordination, the student may be teamed with other students for a portion of their lesson for group learning. The group learning allows for a fun approach to theory and rhythm learning. I use lots of games to reinforce learning.

My 13 year old daughter has been taking lessons from Jared for 4 months. Jared is versatile and really knows music. His stlye is very relevant and he keeps my daughter interested in learning by teaching her music she knows and hears on the radio and at home. I would definitely recommend Jared for anyone who wants to learn not only how to read music but how to master the guitar, the correct way!!

Heart, Bad Company & Queensryche. Learn Your Favorite Songs Quickly & Accurately.

Music Performance is one of my specialties..

It's all about calming those Nerves So You The Best "You" Can Come Out And Perform The Way You Were Born To Play.

Once You Understand Some Basic Concepts, You Will Truly See You Are On The Fast Track!

About Matthew

Hi.. My name is Matt. I'm a very energetic, friendly, understanding & passionate music coach who has worked with students & clientele throughout the US. Possessing more than 25 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

I've networked and/or shared the stage with many famous NW music legends:
1.) Roger Fisher- Heart-2013 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Inductee
2.) Lynn Sorensen- Paul Rogers/Bad Co/KZOK's Spike & Impalers
3.) Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche/Foghat
4.) Jeff Kathan- Paul Rogers/Bad Company/Montros
e
5.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche Singer/Operation Mindcrime
6.) Update - 12/21/2016 For the last 4 months I have been playing off and on with Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice". Season 3 - Team Blake. He is an incredible musician and I'm proud to call him and his manager my friends. His new album coming out is nothing short of amazing. In fact everyone I've mentioned on this list are pro all the way and great guys as well. I"m honored to have played with them.

I challenge my students to view music more than just as a "skill", but also a tool to communicate effectively and to combat life's obstacles.

I have had many guitar teachers myself including one true Famous Rock Star legend here in Pacific NW. Congrats Rog. U Earned It, & inspire myself, & others everyday.

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.

But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!

I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.

Mathew has a very approachable way of teaching music theory and it's application. He has a wealth of knowledge which is evident in how he speaks to me( his student), his accomplishments, and how his lesson plans are laid out. I have attended many other tutors where the curriculum was dull and uncomprehensive. With Matthew he took the time to find out who and what I liked and aspired to sing like, then made a tailored plan allowing me to sing songs that I want to. Matthew takes an approach that simplifies theory and makes it fun. I look forward to more lessons with him, and will look into guitar lessons with him as well

Vanessa P.

Lynnwood, WA

You CAN Sing those Great Songs with Full Voiced Power, Ease and Beauty and learn to "Perform" them with ease and professional mastery!

"Classical" Singing is simply using the real
voice that you came here with in the natural way that it was meant to function before we got in our own way and could no longer remember how to sing and speak freely. As I stated in my upcoming book, "All God's Chillun' Got A Voice", "No, you have not lost your voice, its just the PRODUCTION that got a little messed up!" That is fixable! All we have to do is to understand how the system works, and then adjust our actions accordingly. It works every time. Perfectly executed vocal techniques that have been proven time after time, and that have stood the tests of time WILL bring you the same successes and joys that they have been bringing other singers for eons. Successful Singers don't have to "be born with" some super duper vocal apparatus that is somehow magically better than everybody else's; they ...

About Vanessa

Become the masterful Singer that you really ARE! Learn to bring out the natural beauty and power of your Voice, and to match your own unique personality and vocal qualities to complementing repertoire in order to show your voice and talents in their best light. We'll develop the repertoire that fits YOU. You'll learn how the Voice works and where it really comes from, and probably be amazed at the almost immediate widening of your vocal range.

Trained by one of the Metropolitan Opera'€™s most beloved Voice Coaches, Vanessa brings to the world of music a wonderfully varied Performing and
Teaching career ranging from Opera to Broadway. She holds a BA degree in Music Performance from the School of Fine and Applied Arts of Boston University, and is an award winning Poet. Vanessa has produced, hosted, sung, and broadcast over 2,500 television programs, concertized and spoken in the US and abroad, recorded nine albums in various languages, co-authored an Early Childhood Education book which included training in the use of music for the young, authored three poetry books and accompanying cd's, and teaches Voice to her private and group students.

*** Lesson Details ***
The atmosphere is relaxed in our comfortable professional studio. We work hard, and enjoy the journey as we develop your voice and repertoire with a focus on whatever style of singing you choose. It won't be long until you will see that songs that were previously too high or too low are now comfortably within your grasp. And, you will be able to sing for longer periods of time without getting tired or injuring your voice. You might also want the experience of practicing stage presence, working with trax, learning how to relate to an audience, and learning microphone technique, all of which will add to the professionalism of your most excellent and enjoyable career.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in finding the student's unique voice, and helping them to understand its natural operation in order to set it free to be used in any style they choose to sing. The Italian Bel Canto method describes the basic singing technique, and is the foundation from which a healthy and versatile voice can be developed. My upcoming book, "All God's Chillun' Got A Voice" How To Find It, and Release It As A Creative Tool”, discusses both the technical and esoteric sides of the singing voice, its operation and purposes.
