About Daniel
I love teaching and using humor to make learning fun. I like a lot of different styles of music, with a special love for blues, jazz, rock, and video game music. I've been playing the guitar for almost 20 years, the piano for nearly 15 years, and I've been singing since high school. I taught myself to play guitar because I wanted to perform songs while singing, and because I started to feel silly playing air guitar in front of the mirror in my room while singing along to my favorite songs.

Now, I'm a full-time licensed music teacher, a manager and singer for a choir that records video game soundtracks, and an online teacher. I really enjoy using people's interests to teach them instead of relying on the same old repertoire for every student. If it's not fun, you won't want to keep learning after all! I look forward to learning abou
t you, your musical goals, and the kind of music that inspires you to play/sing!

For prospective Wordpress students: I have been creating websites since middle school and currently own and operate a profitable website (vgmacademy.com). I love building sites and teaching others how to build sites themselves. Whether your focus is personal in nature or you’re looking to create a website for your business, I can help.

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 30 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

I've networked or shared the stage with many famous NW music legends:
1.) Roger Fisher- Heart-2013 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Inductee
2.) I'm Pacific NW Guitarist for Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice!" - Go Team Blake!
3.) Lynn Sorensen- Paul Rogers/Bad Co/KZOK's Spike & Impalers
4.) Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche/Foghat
5.) Jeff Kathan- Paul Rogers/Bad Company/Montrose
6.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche Singer/Operation Mindcrime

In fact everyone I've mentioned above 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.

Bottom Line Is... I can help you learn and progress on your instrument faster...

Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

Tawannna was so patient with my lack of experience taking online classes. My intention was to brush up on my excel skills for a new job I am up for. She not only answered all of my questions throughly...she showed me short cuts I could use to make me look like a rockstar! I feel confident with what I have learned. And I would certainly recommend her to others I know looking to sharpen-up their skills.

About Jonathan
What I love about programming is the ability to take an idea and bring it to life with code. When I first started, I was really intimidated because I didn't have a computer science degree and had never coded before. Fast forward a few years after teaching myself code, and I'm now a data scientist.

I love teaching my students how to learn as well as programming concepts. It's almost more important to know "what to Google" than to know everything there is to know about coding.

I'm not just here as a tutor you see for 30 or 60 minute sessions. My goal is to help you grow as a programmer whether you're taking your first course in college, self-teaching for a career change, or applying to Google.

I know what it's like to go from knowing nothing to making a career in computer science. I felt like I was really behind everybody else in my age group but I was able to pick it up quickly and learn what was relevant from the get go. I teach the most important things you need in order to advance your computer programming skills and skip over anything unnecessary. Without a guide, it will be hard to figure out what is and what is not relevant to becoming a good programmer. I will teach you the most important concepts as fast and efficiently as possible even to a complete beginner who hasn't written any lines of code. I hope you give me a shot and you will definitely not regret it.

About Bhagwati
My goal is to explain the methodology to help the student answer other related questions on his own.

Excellent, positive, rewarding. The Lesson Space is great, and my students are the greatest!
I love the ability to interact with them using several different media, and watch their insecurities dissolve while their confidences grow."

I like to share knowledge with aspiring students and motivate them and I always handle any situation with positive attitude.

I believe that in order for students to fall in love with learning, they must have a teacher or tutor that loves teaching. I'm the teacher that loves teaching.

my strategy is to break down each problem into as many steps as possible so that way my student can fully comprehend what is going on.
