Kareem has been teaching me since I was in the fourth grade. I am currently in 8th grade, and man what can I say, he's as good as it gets! After two years I was in my middle school jazz band, which is not easy for a person who has only been playing for two years. You, yourself will be able to see extreme progress within just a few lessons! You must know Kareem teaches at Pierce College, a class at the Tacoma School of the Arts (which I hopefully will be attending and taking his class), teaches numerous private students every week, and lastly he performs with a stellar jazz band of his own! He is extremely dedicated to the musical field. If I were anybody reading this review and wanted to start playing any of the variety of instruments he plays, I would call Kareem K.!

Kareem is a dedicated and diligent musician and teacher. He is able to share his love of music with students of all ages. Not only is he extremely capable of teaching students the technical aspects of music, but his lessons incorporate a wider perspective as well, such as, listening to different genres of music and asking his students to discuss what they hear. He is always positive and encourages students to do their best. He has style and class and it is a privilege that two of my children can study under his tutelage.

Kareem is the man. I first met him while playing in the Pierce College Big Band--which he directs and is a perennial first place at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. I studied with him for 6 months formally but over the past 2 years through his weekly jam session and mutual gigs he's become a tremendous influence in my life. Whether your a beginner on your axe or an aspiring jazz student of any level he is the instructor for you.
As an improvisor his main influences are Sonny Stitt, Dexter Gordon, and Joshua Redman. For any jazz musician on any instrument he is a master instructor of bebop. His overall playing versatility is solid but his forte is bebop. He is simply a beast of bebop and can aptly guide you along the path of musical enlightenment. Also, like most great jazz musicians his piano chops are excellent.
Thomas K. Seattle, WA

A woodwind player since age 10, Thomas has experience as a performer and teacher. His previous education has included methodology classes on teaching specific instruments, and he is available to teach beginning clarinet lessons.

About Thomas

Passionate about composition, conducting, and education, Thomas hopes to bridge the gap between ensembles and the audience by creating and presenting music that is fun, approachable, and sophisticated, all while crossing between genres and artistic disciplines. His concerts include Emerge & Ascend, a benefit concert featuring a 70-piece orchestra that raised $1,500 for the Ronald McDonald House while presenting new music. His Junior Composition Recital sought to showcase an eclectic array of styles and ensembles, from a plainchant-inspired brass quintet to a funk big band chart. His Senior Composition Recital used a 45-piece orchestra, drawing inspiration from Dr. Seuss stories for one piece and featuring a tap dancer on another. Fueled by his love of music, film, art, and video games, ...

Thomas has requested that I write a letter of recommendation on his behalf.
Thomas worked as an instructor for Piano Keys 4 Kids from September 2013 to June 2014. As the owner of Piano Keys 4 Kids, I assigned Thomas with duties as an instructor in an after school enrichment program in several public elementary schools. Specifically, Thomas taught children in grades K-3 the basic fundamentals of the piano using a curriculum developed by Piano Keys 4 Kids. His group class time was approximately 1 hour in length. Based on his college class schedule he accepted as many school assignments as possible.
Over the time that I have known Thomas he has consistently performed his duties with competence. Thomas was not only reliable in attending every class he was assigned, but very prompt in delivering an update on the progress of his classes.
With the depth of Thomas' musical skills, he can be an outstanding piano teacher in both the private and group setting.
While Thomas leaving our company to attend graduate school is a loss to us, I have every confidence that Thomas will thrive in graduate studies as well as in his music instructor endeavors. Thomas is an intelligent and committed individual.

Joshua B. Seattle, WA

The clarinet is an incredibly expressive instrument, but only if you can cover the holes! I specialize in helping students make music with this incredibly capable instrument!

About Joshua

While building a professional career, I'm looking to re-engage with my roots and experience as a educator. I specialize in helping kids learn how to learn. It's one thing to teach a student the answer, but it's exponentially better to teach students how to find the answer for themselves, encouraging and guiding along the way. I grew up in Ohio and went to one school district my entire public school life where I took honors and Advanced Placement classes through high school. I also participated in band, earning membership into the Ohio All-State Honor band two times. I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Suma Kum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band. I have a breadth of experience for
