About Edwin
Hello! Thank you for your interest in taking guitar/piano/music lessons.

I am a professional teacher/studio musician/performer/producer with over 17 years of private teaching experience and a graduate of the University of Miami Studio Music and Jazz program in 2002 specializing in the guitar.

I am available to teach guitar(acoustic, electric, classical) for all levels, ages, and styles(pop to folk, rock to soul, world to classical) in English, Spanish and Japanese.

Other subjects taught include bass guitar, piano/keyboard, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, harmonium, classical percussion, music theory, composition(all styles from pop to classical), ear training, and studio production/engineering/mixing.

Born in Cali, Colombia on April 1979, I began my musical endeavors studying the piano at the age of 6. Early on I had the opportunit
y to play percussion in the school symphony while at the same time developed an intense interest in the instrument that would become my true love, the guitar.

During 1996-98 I studied jazz guitar at the New World School of the Arts music program under the direction of J.B. Dyas and Dr. Roby George. Upon graduation, I was immediately accepted to the University of Miami jazz guitar program under the direction of Randall Dollahan. It was during this time that I also refined my skills as a classical guitarist and as a composer/arranger. In addition, I began passing my knowledge onto friends and eventually began working as a teacher.

My ability to play almost any genre of music is the fruit of past experience playing with an impressive variety of music groups, including jazz combos, symphony orchestras, Andean world music ensembles, and several rock and pop groups as well. As a studio guitarist I have recorded for various artists including Jaci Velasquez, Carlos Ponce, Alexandre Pires, and Noelia.

Now also available to teach online video chat lessons through Skype.

Every one of you is unique and there are many possible paths to reach your goals in music.

With my background and music industry experience, I am able to customize my lessons for you so that you can reach your desired goals. We will take some time to find out where your passion lies in music and I will use my experience and knowledge to create a customized lesson-plan that will allow us to focus on reaching your desired goals and at the same time maintain a well rounded music education.

I find this to be key in making the lessons and your practice sessions very enjoyable, fun and laid back - knowing that everything we practice, play and talk about is in line with your goals as a student.

I will also be playing along with you and demonstrating everything that we're working on - music is meant to be shared and played with others and it is important to have that experience of interaction from early on in your lessons.

So whether it's learning to accompany yourself or others, write songs, read music, understand harmony, solo, or just jam out to your favorite songs, you will be well on your way to reaching your goals within 6 months of my lessons.

Look forward to making music with you!

I try my best to involve and invite students to join or listen to live music ensembles, recitals, and performances of different genres. I teach all styles of music for voice, piano, and guitar. I am very diligent with practicing, teaching you how to practice, and keeping track of it. In 3 or 6 months you will have a basic understanding of music theory and a solid foundation of piano, voice, or guitar techniques. I thrive to boost self esteem and confidence in all the students that I teach. I also teach composition, students really enjoy writing their own songs and performing them.

After the first lesson you will be making music be on your way to achieving your musical goals. Classical piano requires a strong foundation in fundamentals such as theory, sightreading, technique and performance practice all of which we will begin to explore in your first lesson.

With 10+ years as a music teacher and professional musician I have picked up many approaches that will insure you are making the most progress and truly finding your musical voice.

About Calvin
As a teacher, I have worked with of many ages and backgrounds. One of my students, Skylar Stecker, has gone on to become a successful major label recording artist recently becoming the youngest artist to receive a number 1 on the dance billboard charts. I recently had the opportunity to tour with her as her guitarist and pianist.

I have studied, performed and taught music for over 10 years. I hold a B.A. in music from USC. My professional experience as a musician and teacher has led me to many areas of the music business. I've worked as an apprentice to several established film composers and arrangers and have had the opportunity work with Lionel Hampton New York Big Band, Metropole Orchestra, Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, Clayton Brothers, Rachelle Farrell, Michael Buble, and Charles Aznavour. I play guitar, mandolin, piano,
bass, ukulele, banjo as well as write music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am extremely patient and firmly believe that anybody can learn to play music.

I try to keep my teaching philosophy simple. We figure out your musical goals and aspirations and carve out a path to achieving them. Along the way I will try to illuminate how the path to attaining your goals and aspirations is best taken at an enjoyable, relaxed pace and with a strong work ethic.

I always prepare for your lessons based on your interests, integrating relevant books and videos, creating handouts tailored to what we are studying in order to maintain clarity.

About Leni
BA in Music, composition and conducting from Hunter College (City University of New York)
Diploma from the Conservatoire de Fontainebleau, France
Studied with Louise Talma, Jacques Louis Monod, Nadia Boulanger

Lessons are about learning to make music, not endless scales and arpeggios which so often lead to pain and injury. Tone production, sight reading, and age appropriate theory and interpretation are strong elements from the beginning.

An overwhelming percentage of young, enthusiastic and talented children are discouraged early and give up the piano because they do not make rapid progress and therefore do not enjoy their lessons. Music is one of life's great joys. It should be fun. For the intermediate, and even the advanced, student, it is critical that much more attention be paid to the musicality of the playing and the u
nderstanding of the music. This leads to more beautiful playing and greater enjoyment.

Leni is an incredible instructor. He is extremely knowledgeable and yet never comes across as condescending or arragant.
He is helpful and encouraging and makes learning to play fun.
The music that he selects is challenging without being overwhelming and he is fine with moving on to something else if you just plain don't like a piece.
He is a very popular instructor and I feel fortunate that I have found a space in his schedule !

I can honestly say that Leni is one of the most professional and intelligent music instructors I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I have a background in music (low brass) from the 6th grade all the way through college. While I no longer play any brass instruments, I am currently taking drum lessons, and felt that now would also be the best time to try my hand (no pun intended) at piano. I am very happy with the lessons that Leni gave, however, I eventually came to the realization that the piano would be too much of a time constraint for me. I was not 100% committed to the piano due to working an 8-5 job every day, as well as taking the drum lessons I was already taking prior to starting piano. Also, it didn't help that I did not have a piano to practice with. With that being said, if I ever find myself with the time/capability to commit myself to the piano the way I wanted to, then I will be contacting Leni for more lessons. There are many piano teachers out there, but if you want to learn the CORRECT way so that you will not hurt your hands/fingers, then Leni is the absolute best choice. Thanks for everything Leni!

I have a big experience teaching students all levels and ages. My goal is to keep the joy of music making for each and every student, but also to make sure you learn and advance after each lesson. I would happily work with you on the music you want, combining it with the specific piano techniques you need to have in order to play the instrument well.

About Kseniya
I have been teaching violin from young children to beginner adults for 10 years. I also teach piano for beginner and intermediate levels.
I believe that the the music potential comes through discipline, self-motivation and passion. As a teacher, my goal is to get to know each of my students and create individually tailored lessons according to my student's needs and goals. I believe that a strong technical foundation is a key in music making - when a student feels comfortable playing the instrument , they find how much they are capable of doing and what a great joy is this music making process. This is why I put a strong emphasis on the technical aspects. They say "practice makes perfect", but in reality only perfect practice makes your playing perfect, in other words, my goal as a teacher, is to give my students all the right tools to
succeed, when after each lesson you feel that you improved your playing and gained new skills, even if its a small one.
Lessons are taught using a Traditional method refer to students learning to read music. Whereas the Suzuki Method students learn by ear which I (might) use for very young students age 3-5. For older students I use certain aspects of the Suzuki method but definitely incorporate basic theory and note reading as early as possible.
All students will have the opportunity and are encouraged to perform in recitals.

AVAILABILITY: The calendar here is not up-to-date and still on a summer schedule. I mostly teach M-Th (depending on my schedule Fr and Sat are possible). Lessons are scheduled on an individual basis based on my schedule and student's availability.Please send me a message what days/times you are looking for, and I'll get back to you. Thanks!

Learn to play your favorite music on the piano. Relaxed, no-stress lessons will help you or your child enjoy playing the piano.
I have experience teaching young students, so your child can start early. I will use a variety of music styles including modern, classical, Romantic and your child's favorite music. I also believe that you are never too old to enjoy playing music.

About Tracy
"I've always wanted to learn how to play the piano!"

Well, now's the time! You can do it with no-stress lessons regardless of your age.

I am a mom with a passion for education and music. I am excited to see people, young or old, learn new things and stretch their boundaries. I want you to have fun.

My educational philosophy is that "success breeds success." As I guide the student to achieve small successes at the beginning, you will gain confidence in your ability. As your confidence grows, you will be able to conquer more challenges and succeed beyond what you might expect.

In fact, learning the piano will aid in learning all other musical instruments, improve hand-eye coordination and increase appreciation for music of all genres. But the benefits for your preschooler don't end at the keyboard. It will im
prove language development, math concepts (patterns, and counting), persistence, delayed gratification, critical thinking, logic, history, empathy and much more. And the benefits of playing the piano aren't just for preschoolers. Mature students show improvements in memory, brain function, health and coping with stress and anxiety.

I can't wait to see you or your child enjoy the music as much as I do.

As an experienced musician, composer, and teacher, I've been trained by some of the best music professionals in the PNW. After 6 years of teaching violin and piano, I know how to best fit my students needs. Whether you're a beginner or intermediate player, we'll work on developing fundamental skills. In our lessons we'll focus on technique, music theory, sight reading, learning your favorite music, and most importantly how to be relaxed and have fun! I believe the best musicians are the ones who play because of their love for music. If you're looking to become a better player who's willing to practice and have fun, send me a message and let's get started!

About Peyton
At a very young age I discovered my passion for music. As a child I was involved in numerous state choirs, prestigious orchestras, and symphonies. In college, I studied piano performance, music composition, and played violin in the Western Washington University Symphony. Throughout my music education I was instructed by some of the greatest teachers and conductors in the PNW, all of whom used different teaching styles and techniques. I've taught both piano and violin for 6 years and incorporate what I've learned to personalize lessons for each student.
In my experience, people learn best when they enjoy the music they're learning and become aware of their progress and accomplishments. I encourage my students to be patient when learning a difficult piece or gaining new skills. Like anythings progress takes a little time and hard work, but
that doesn't mean you can't have fun along the way!

Patient and caring instructor! Allows you to choose what you want to play instead of choosing music for you. I chose a composition by Hayao Miyazaki, as I always loved his music. Showed me websites I could use to support my learning, as well as provided relevant assignments. Taught me about musicality, rather than just playing the notes. Helped me with reading spacing between notes as intervals rather than looking at the notes themselves which was very helpful

I have been teaching piano for 40 years. My teaching style is specially geared to each individual student of any age. I keep the lessons interesting and appropriate to the ability of the student. Lessons include learning correct use of posture, fingers, hands, learning to read notes, use of timing, scales, chords, discipline of practice, and the pleasure of playing the piano. Teaching piano and watching a student progress has been a passion of mine for a very long time.

About Gail
Hello to all potential students. I have been teaching piano for 42 years. This has been a truly rewarding experience for me over the years. I studied piano beginning at eight years, old enjoying many different types of music. I excelled because of my dedication and love of piano. I did go to college for music and have been teaching piano ever since.

I enjoy all types of students from beginners to intermediate, trying to keep the lessons interesting and designed for each individual students' need. For beginners, we will learn how to read notes, keep time/rhythm, use of positioning and correct use of posture, and the many facets of reading and loving music. It is also important to learn the discipline of practice and learn the love of playing this beautiful instrument. For students who have some knowledge of music and/or piano
, we will find where you are at and go on from there.

I continue my love of music by accompanying for a choral group for 40 years and directing/designing musical shows. Music is a wonderful gift and piano is a great choice.

If you are looking for a knowledgeable, experienced, and (very) patient piano teacher, look no further. As an adult learner....with absolutely NO piano playing experience...I can honestly say that Gail started from where I was, and we gradually moved forward from there. Lessons are always fun, and light-hearted, in a serious kind of way.

Honestly...if I can get from, "Which one is middle C?" to Chopin, with Gail as my piano teacher, she must be good (did I mention VERY patient?).
