Jared G.

Everett, WA

About Jared

I have been teaching guitar upwards of thirteen years and as an instructor, My teaching method comes from a curriculum I have developed which uses popular guitar driven rock tunes as musical etudes. Educating the student with valuable theory, reading, technique, and scale theory, while remaining fun. As a songwriter I have worked with companies like Wild Whirled Music which
writes and records music for use in film and television as well as songwriter
and producer greats such as Tim James, Antonina Armato, and legendary Desmond Child. With Wild Whirled Music I have had my songs placed on MTV,
FOX, TNT, VH1, CW, E!, Bravo, FX, USA and TLC on shows such as LA Ink, Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Parks and Recreation, Mentalist, Psych, Bones, The Office, The Adam Sandler Film "That's My Boy" and the Greg Kinnear film “Stuck In Love”

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!!

Excellent in both instruments and voice

I took voice lessons from Michael C. and he was very easy to work with. He always provided excellent feedback and knew my strengths and weaknesses and where to focus. He provided each week a lesson with detailed tasks and wanted to keep me on track. He didn't waste any time and was prompt and professional in all dealings. I highly recommend him.

This Berklee grad knows his stuff!

I had already been playing guitar for about 10 years or so by the time I started taking lessons with Michael (so definitely not a beginner), and although my playing techniques were already pretty decent, I knew my knowledge of music theory paled in comparison and needed some work. Michael was able to easily assess where I was at and start me on a path of further music enlightenment. Before the end of my first lesson, it became clear just how much I had to learn and that Michael's musical prowess went beyond what he was teaching me.

Rather than just giving me pre-made handouts, Michael would have blank manuscript paper with which he would walk me through the theory as he was writing it out. This was extremely helpful in understanding the lesson. Michael can be flexible with his lesson plans, so if there's something specific you want to get into, he will teach if he feels you're ready.

Michael’s extensive knowledge of music theory was a big help in developing me more as a songwriter and composer. Even if you’re already an advanced player, I would definitely recommend this teacher if you are looking to broaden your musical literacy.

Melissa M.

Everett, WA

About Melissa

Hello and welcome to your studio!

I teach from the comfort of my home studio in the Everett/Snohomish area. My teaching style is developed specifically for each student, to give you the most out of your lesson without overwhelming you. I will help you learn to play the songs you love! My love for music is deep and I enjoy sharing what I know with my fellow students. I have seen the impact music has on families; it unites them like a beautiful song waiting to be played. Many of my students compliment my patience and say they have learned so much in so little time. Life with music is a journ
ey but not only that it is a lifestyle. Being a good, dedicated student will bring so many wonderful moments and rewards as you take the journey with your instrument of choice. I have students entering talent shows, performing at assemblies, choir, musical theatre and locally for the elderly during Christmas.

About your lessons:

I host the following recitals: a Christmas and Spring recital.

Teaching Philosophy for Piano

* For the very young beginner (4-8), we will refer to Dogs and Birds, which is a wonderful book series developed in the United Kingdom that includes colorful illustrations making learning music enjoyable for the young musician.
* We will journey through Faber books and loose music material for your music studies.
* You will learn all major and minor scales.
* Other books like Bastien and Alfred will be included.
* Have fun playing songs.
* Learn to sightread.
* Ear-training development.
* Learn about technique and proper poster.
* Enjoy learning songs in classical style. Even the best jazz musicians recommend training classically
before jazz.
* Learn solfege.
* For older learners you will refer to Faber studies, loose materials and Hanon drills.

Teaching Philosophy for Guitar

* The younger beginner will start with Alfred's kids guitar course.
* Learn how to read tablature and music.
* William Leavitt's Berkley guitar study.
* Learn how to play scales in the first position on your guitar.
* Build rhythm studies and cadences.
* Develop ear training and dexterity.
* Sightread chords and melodies.
* Play duets.
* Have fun playing songs.

Teaching Philosophy for Voice

Learning to sing is a wonderful thing. It is like learning any other instrument; it takes time, practice, technique, study and care.

* Breathing techniques.
* Vocal warm-ups
* Ear training.
* Learn to sight-sing.
* Perform songs within your range. I teach to train you to sing the songs you love and with that training comes singing songs you sometimes might not like. Good music teachers are working to develop your muscles, chest and head voice. With this is mind it is important to select material that will not impede or harm your voice during studies.
* Learn how to care for your voice.

She later transferred to Trinity Lutheran College earning her Bachelor of Music degree in Music and Worship. She has been playing music since she was five years old.

She interned at the 5th Avenue Theatre in downtown Seattle. She was recently seen performing guitar, along with one of my students, in Cotton Patch Gospel. You will also see me as an accompanist and actor in this years It's A Wonderful Life, Live Radio Play, at Warm Beach Camp's dinner theater, 2014. She plays music for residents at a retirement home, is getting ready to record her first full album and teaches music to children in Montessori schools.

I am a guitar player making the transition to piano. In just the three short months I have been taking lessons from Melissa, she has improved my ability to sight read, deepened my knowledge of music theory, helped me learn over 20 songs on piano. I have have many music teachers over the last two decades and Melissa is, by far, the most knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging.

Fantastic teacher and role model

Melissa has done a fantastic job working with my 9 year old daughter on both Piano and Guitar lessons. Melissa is patient and consistent with her teaching methods and that resonates extremely well with my daughter. My daughter has learned a TON is a very short time frame. I look forward to continued lessons.

Vanessa P.

Lynnwood, WA

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.

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

*** 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.

Erica provides piano lessons to our eight year-old son. She is timely, creative, and an excellent motivator. Erica easily built rapport with our son and made him feel special and respected. She knows how to keep him focused, while having a lot of fun. Our son looks forward to every lesson and we are impressed with how quickly he is advancing.

As a colleague of Erica's I have watched her grow into an incredible performer and educator. Her wisdom in teaching piano supersedes her years and is evident in her thoughtful integration of educational techniques, music theory, diverse repertoire, etc. in engaging lessons tailored for each student. Erica believes in herself and encourages others to do the same, thus creating an environment of "I can" rather than "I cannot or am not." If you are seeking a teacher to nurture a love for the instrument in addition to establishing fine technique in a safe and supportive setting-- call Erica.

From the moment we met Erica we knew we were going to lover her! She put both of our boys (8 and 11) at ease, made them laugh and challenged them right away. My 8 year old had lost interest in piano and after his first lesson with Erica he was hooked. Both boys now voluntarily practice and are learning a ton about overall music education. Erica is prompt, creative and energetic. We are thankful we found her!
