I started out knowing NOTHING about how to play the guitar. Matt has had great patience and a cheerful attitude when teaching me how to play. He has taught me good warm-ups and simple practices to become a better player. Im already learning how to play songs only with 5 practices! Great instructor.

Matthew was a great instructor. I only had a week to do all 5 of my lessons but he was very flexible in scheduling, and I learned plenty of things I can do to practice and improve my singing on my own.

Overview: I strive for lessons that produce smiles and results! Lessons are not a one size fits all; instead I customize them to match age, musical background and experience. I work to get to know each student's level, needs and personal goals. My teaching philosophy emphasizes the study of musicianship together with proficiency on a particular instrument. My methods concentrate on development of the ears while simultaneously teaching technique enabling students to express and enjoy themselves. Introduction to different styles, ever important concepts of theory, harmony and harmonic rhythm, melodic improvisation, recording and composing extend my students’ musical acumen and enjoyment. Experience: I am a life-long Musician. I began piano at 5, completing my BA in Music (Magna cum

I am not a musician, but have been active as a board member of the Washington Blues Society for more than a decade. I met Dyann a bit over a year ago and had the opportunity to work with her building an all volunteer show, a fundraiser for the Blues Society. I have known a lot of teachers through various aspects of my life; I've never met one quite like Dyann. Her efforts go far beyond teaching. She is a first class organizer and will literally do whatever it takes to reach a goal. What more could anyone want in a teacher? Her education, musical experience and positive attitude will meld well with your goals. If I were taking music lessons I would call her first. So much more will wear off on you than the mechanical efforts of mastering an instrument. You will grow far faster and further than you can imagine!

I am an active member of the Washington Blues Society Education Committee, for which I have been a board member and a creator of Passing the Torch, a music scholarship program for teens. Last spring I worked with Dyann Arthur, to bring Time Marches on, her 2 hour-long multimedia musical show, to the public at the Neptune Theatre. Dyann both wrote and directed this American musical history retrospective, featuring, public domain and original music, costume and scenery changes, and short film loops. She worked with both adult actors from Seattle Theatre Group, and with largely inexperienced teen musicians. Dyann impressed me as being wonderful working with these teens, being both positive and organized, so that the teens, knew exactly what to do and when. They seemed very excited to learn what Dyann had to teach them, and enthusiastic about attending rehearsals. In talking with various teen participants during the rehearsals and after the show, all imparted some version of how they loved working with Dyann and how much they learned about the music industry and stage shows. She advised them about their music performances, stage presence, and professionalism. I believe that they gained a great deal from working with Dyann. I would not hesitate to call upon her to organize and produce another show.

Dyann’s wealth of experience and talent would be a benefit to any potential student. Her passion for music is evident when working with youth. I have seen her extract the best out of a group of young musicians which makes her a successful instructor. My daughter was inspired by her leadership and knowledge. She deeply appreciates all that she has learned from Dyann!
