Kelly A. Seattle, WA

About Kelly

After years of teaching all levels, and many different styles of voice and piano lessons, I can tell you this-- I LOVE teaching! My students have ranged from 5 to 65, from classical piano, or jazz/ pop piano to pop/ rock/ jazz singing, and no matter what we always have a great time. I guarantee that in our lessons, you will see progress almost immediately... but above all, learning music is FUN! A little extra info.... **In 2012 I finished a Masters degree at NYU in Jazz Studies, and just finished a new album of some jazz, folk, and original music. **I perform in New York City and Seattle, and I tour with my band a few times each year **I taught jazz piano and voice lessons for four years at NYU and also through the New York Jazz Academy and Brooklyn Music Factory, from beginning to ...

Kelly is a wonderful teacher! She is extremely knowledgeable about music. She helped me raise my grades in my music theory classes. I learned so much about building my repertoire and using different techniques in order to sing songs in a unique way. I would absolutely recommend taking any kind of music lessons from Kelly because of her knowledge and her ability to communicate the concept. Anyone will become a better musician when learning from Kelly.

We've only had 2 lessons so far, but I can say Kelly is a fantastic teacher. I've learned and grown as a singer already.

Jack L. Seattle, WA

About Jack

I began studying music when I was 10, first in my elementary school and throughout high school and college. I have had amazing opportunities to perform with various musical groups across the country, most notably with the 204th Army Band. I also try to play out locally as much as I can. The two groups that I currently play for are the punk band "Omega Moo", and the indie rock band "The Requisite". In addition to these two groups, I also continue to play for the 204th Army Band, which allows me to tour a different part of the world each year. Other than performing, I am also dedicated to sharing and teaching other drummers to reach their musical goals. I teach privately out of my studio, located in North Seattle. *** Lesson Details *** I like to keep an open dialogue with my ...

Jack is a terrific instructor

Jack is such a positive teacher -- incredibly patient, easygoing, technically proficient, friendly. I'm a little older than most of his students so those new drumming pathways take a bit longer to establish but he makes each lesson fun and I feel I always learn at every lesson some new, interesting and challenging technique to practice which keeps me intrigued and eager to continue with lessons!

Great drummer

I have worked with Jack on a number of projects and he is the best drummer I have ever had the opportunity to rock with. So much of that comes from his commitment to practice, which is something that really shines through as he teaches you. His work ethic kind of rubs off on you and he keeps things exciting by always giving you something to reach for. Plus he's easy to get a long with.

Fantastic drum teacher

Jonah was very patient with our 8 yr old son who had absolutely no prior experience in music at all. Jonah was very adaptable to the needs and skill level of our son. Our son came out of every lesson inspired to practice, and with the desire to be like Jonah one day. Jonah is not just an awesome instructor, he's very knowledgeable in every aspect related to drums. And finally, Jonah can really wail on the drum set!
Very cool, first music experience for our son.

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!

Took guitar lessons from Scott for about a year! I was such a beginner I didn't even have a guitar at the time! Not only did he find a lovely guitar for me, his lessons were awesome. He was always on time, very patient and took your improvement seriously. Great guy and great teacher. Highly recommend!

I took guitar lessons from Scott for about 6 months when I was living in Seattle. He had a room in his house dedicated to music and he was always prepared for our lesson together. Scott not only taught me different basics and techniques of playing as well as theory, but he also helped me break some self-taught bad habits. Scott encouraged me to look at and listen to music in a different way than just strumming a chord or plucking a string. He taught me how to play with my heart and to play with passion. He also told me about "The Song" which is that moment in playing that you just play whatever shows up and you keep playing and everything around you disappears. And its in this moment that real music happens and your experience of life shifts. If you choose Scott as your instructor, I promise you will not be disappointed.

I had 8 guitar lessons with Scott, and if it wasn't for moving out of state, I would have kept going much longer. Scott is extremely skillful, but also continuously re-considering what he knows, and looking at things from different angles. This really makes him an amazing teacher, as he both shares that learning and curiosity with you, and also is able to give you a different way of looking at things if you're having trouble or just want a deeper understanding. I've enjoyed tinkering with my guitar for many years, but Scott really helped me find the right tools to enjoy practicing, learning, and exploring the instrument.
