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.) Queensryche guitarist Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Foghat
4.) Jeff Kathan- Paul Rogers/Bad Company/Mont
rose
5.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Queensryche

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!

*** Lesson Details ***

Most All Styles/Genres/Experience Levels Taught - We go over everything systematically. Music Theory, Songwriting, Chords, Scales, Determining Key Of Songs, Performance, etc

I thought I was ahead of the curve on SEO and Wordpress but I have learned so much more in my sessions with Matthew. Highly recommended. I'm signing up for more lessons right now. I look forward to making my site an authority on the web; and I'll do this with Matthew's help.

My daughter has been performing vocal lessons with Mathew over the last 7 months and I must say both my daughter and I have thoroughly enjoyed our time with Mathew learning the finer details of singing. Mathew has great knowledge in all areas of music and has helped my daughter grow as a singer. He is patient, detailed and connects well with my child. I would also add that he has also been more than flexable with rescheduing lessons when needed, which has made our experience even more rewarding. (: Kids and their sport!

Getting the right sound and technique from the start. Focusing on developing your right and left hand to play with control. Most of all the realization of a piece of music.

About Todd

I believe that music should take you on a journey and that it begins with your first lesson and your first note.

* Sightread chords and melodies.
* Will learn to read treble clef melodies and improvise.

* Have fun playing songs.

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.

About your instructor:

Melissa attended Cornish College of the Arts from 2005-2007 to earn her music composition degree. 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. Melissa has been in touring bands in California, choir throughout college, community bands, open mics, gigs, musical theatre and theatre since 2005. 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 look forward to serving you as your music instructor!

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.

About Greg

I have been playing guitar since I was 14 and I have not looked back since. I love music and I love helping other people discover the joys it can bring. In college I studied classical guitar and got experience playing in many different groups. I currently perform in and around the Seattle area.

Jesse W.

Seattle, WA

I've been playing classical guitar for more than eight years, and teaching for the last two! I'm looking for eager students of all skill levels who are interested in developing not only their guitar skills, but also their musicianship and knowledge of relevant theory and history. My lessons will be uniquely tailored to your goals and abilities in order to provide the best possible learning experience!

About Jesse

Hi! I'm Jesse. I've been playing guitar (mostly classical) for more than a decade. I fell in love with the instrument when I was 12 years old and have played it non-stop ever since. In high school, I won a number of jazz competitions as a member of the Garfield High School Jazz Ensemble. I also played classical, blues, and rock in my spare time.

I recently graduated from Pomona College, where I majored in music with a focus on guitar performance. I graduated with a B.A. in music after a very successful senior recital.

If you're a guitar player of any level, from beginner to advanced, I c
an help you develop your skills and become a better musician. Whether you're a beginner who's just picking up a guitar for the first time, an intermediate student who's looking to hone their technique and expand their repertoire, or an advanced player who wants to learn how to push their playing to the next level, I can help you achieve your goals.

I've never really played music before, but I've always liked listening. The classical stuff can seem a bit hard to approach.

But Jesse really took the time to show me that anyone can play, provided they practice, and that with a little help growth can happen fairly quickly. He also told me that learning the practical skills of classical guitar could really help me expand outward into the rest of music genre.

He's a cool guy. It was nice that he came to my place so I didn't have to go through the hassle of finding him. He also played a bit of this piece called Chaconne by Bach, a bit complex for me but really showed how exciting classical guitar can be.
