Holly A. Bellingham, WA

About Holly

I recently completed my Masters degree in voice performance at UT Austin where I focused my studies on becoming as knowledgeable and skilled in teaching as I possibly could. At age 14, I began taking voice lessons and went on to major in voice in college at Western Washington University. During my undergraduate work, I helped many college students audition for the vocal department, musical theatre productions, and improve their singing skills for personal fulfillment. My teaching is based in years of applied voice training and the knowledge I gained from both undergraduate and graduate level courses in voice pedagogy. Ever since I began teaching I have been striving to find new and creative ways to help each of my students solidify their vocal technique to grow as singers, musicians and ...

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 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. He has a great method of teaching that really helped me succeed. I'll be coming back for more lessons!

I have been really impressed with Terry. Terry works great with my 13 year old son. He is patient and always acts interested in what my son is wanting to show him. Terry is also very good at making sure he includes songs in the lesson that my son likes. I am impressed with Terry's guitar playing - my son will play something random, and Terry can join right in. As a parent I am impressed with Terry's attention to detail. As my son plays, Terry will notice things like correct fingering, strum patterns, counting, etc. If something wasn't played correctly, Terry notices it and will make the correction in a positive way. I know that my son appreciates Terry's input also. I feel like Terry is teaching my son good habits and is doing a great job of bringing exercises to lesson that are a good foundation to learning....and he adds things as building blocks to that foundation. I asked my son his opinion and he said that Terry helps you work on good technique. And while you are learning with him, you get to pick some of the songs that you want to learn.

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.
